Write a letter in pencil. This is a Letters & Writing category swap. If you worry that your letter is too short, then you are correct. If you don't want to write a letter, listen to your inner voice. If you wanna write a letter, click JOIN now!

Use your mechanical pencils. Or sharpen your Ticonderoga. Please use at least some "regular" lead/graphite pencil. Colored pencil is okay, as long as you also included some "regular" pencil too.

If you have any questions, please PM me - I don't always get back to check the comments.

Some Housekeeping Info

Firstly, thanks so much for joining my swaps, people. It's a lot fun for me. They've grown in size to the point where I need to take some steps to control the amount of time that it takes to manage them.

  • Communicate Communicate Communicate I won't be checking to see who's naughty and who's nice. If you have a question or problem, please let your partner know and give them a chance to respond. If you can't resolve the issue, then let me know and I'll do what I can to help work it out.

  • Senders Please send your items on time and remember to mark your swap as "sent". Please let your partner know if you are going to send late. Many swappers won't mind a bit of delay as long as you keep people informed. Before assigning partners for future swaps, I will remove anyone has not marked an item "sent" for a previous swap. If you want to be in the next swap, then send your items and mark them as sent.

  • Recipients If you haven't received anything a week or two after the swap deadline, please let your partner know. If you still don't receive an item (or a satisfactory response), leave a "1" rating then contact me to send an angel replacement. I will angel only if you rate the swap appropriately. Accurate ratings are the only way I can weed out unreliable senders from future swaps. And that's good for everyone.

Hey Betsy! I love this idea!

I resist hand-written letters 'cuz I have a wonky wrist and sometimes the pen just shoots off in the other direction, seemingly of its own volition.

Pencil, eraser... YES!

I looooooove erasers. I use the retractable stick kind. They don't get filthy like uncovered erasers. And you hardly ever run out. I have to admit, tho, I don't use my pencils nearly as much since I found Pilot Frixion erasable gel pens. Those are amazing!

I write all my letters in pencil as I make too many mistakes with pen. Use too much white out with pen.
