US only!!!!! Sorry!!!!!

The ast one was so much fun so I'm bringing this back! :)

Who is not happy to find lovely mail in one's mailbox? Sometimes it can really make one's day and nothing is more frustrating than an empty mailbox. And sometimes I think beautiful mail may even make the mail carrier happy. I always imagine them smile when they find nice letters among all the bills and junks they deliver every day.

So this is for all the mailbox junkies, the ones who stalk their mail carrier and get frustrated when there is no personal, nice mail in their mailbox. This is for all those who wanna see their mailbox - and themselves, of course - happy.


1) Write a friendly letter (u can write about whatever u like) - should be at least a page long, anything else is regarded o be a note and not a letter to me. Introduce urself, tell about ur day, your dreams or whatever comes to ur mind.

2) Add 3 lil surprises (something small that fits a letter - e.g. postcard, notecard+envie, a tea bag, a sticker sheet, recipe cards, ATS, craft supplies, whatever u can think of.......) - I am not making this profile based since i want this to be an easy swap; but it sure helps to check ur partner's profile and find out what they like.

3) Decorate the envelope. Don't just send a plain envelope - make it a happy envelope that shows that special mail is there. Use whatever means to make it different from the envelopes we find in our mailboxes every day - just be creative.

Add extras if u feel like (optional).

If u get a letter with 3 lil surprises in a somehow decorated envie, rate with 5 - these are the must-haves.

To keep it simple and the postage low, everyone will have one partner.

Minimum rating 5.0 ...Newbies can join. Please - no flakers. It's a really simple swap and it's really meant to make someone's mailbox happy - so be fair and send a smile.

I'd LOVE to do this swap, but I'm in The Bahamas. If anyone wants to do this internationally, send me a message please. :)

LilCowgirl 12/24/2012 #

WOOOOOW so many have signed up already, that's awesome. Merry Xmas! And in case someone wants to host an international version, go ahead... I'm just trying to keep the postage down so I made it US only.

I can't wait for this to start!! :D

Aaaw, I'm not able to join coz it's not international :( I recently made the mistake (against swap-etiquette apparently, which i do not know, soz) by copying a COOL swap, making the same one, just international, and referencing the original creator!! YIKES! needless to say i won't do that again, so if anyone DOES host an international version of this swap, plz inform me so i can join too! PS: @LilCowgirl nice swap :) M

Can we use a letter set that already has deco, or it has to be hand decorated?

Lila84 12/30/2012 #

are we allowed to type the letter on the computer and print it out on decorative paper? sometimes i have difficulty writing letters due to a physical health condition.

Thanks, Ariel! The envelope arrived today! I love the vintage postcard - reminds me of pictures of my mother when she was a little girl!

Hello :) I'm fairly new to swap-bot and I sent my envelope about 2 weeks ago. I still didn't get rated, yet. How do I know if my stuff arrived? Thank youuu!!
