First I'd like to thank Nina for giving me this swap idea ~ Thank you Nina! :o)

This is a profile swap so that means you must have a very well filled out profile & you must thoroughly read your partner's profile for giftie ideas!

Because your package may be big/heavy I'm making this USA only but if anyone wants to do an International one, etc, please feel free!

There will only be 1 partner for this swap so that you can put a lot of effort into spoiling your partner!

  • Thoroughly read your partner's profile.
  • Think about what your partner might like. Either come up with items by directly using lists, etc, on their profile or brainstorm some ideas by using what they say on their profile to guide you to some special things that you think they would like.
  • Create a very special package catered just for them. Be sure to make it as awesome as you can, something you yourself would love to receive in the mail! If you want to wrap the gifties or tie a ribbon around them, it is up to you.
  • The 5 items do not need to be brand new or store bought but they do need to be nice & thoughtful!
  • Spend at least $15 - $20 on your partner or the equivalent (if it is handmade, etc). This DOES NOT include postage! Its okay if the items are small but they must be valued $15 - $20 and it must show that you actually read their profile and spent time on your partner. Aim to spoil them! :o)

    If you receive 5 items that fit your profile and they are roughly valued appropriately then please rate them a 5. If your package is extremely nice, valued higher or includes more than just 5 things then you should consider giving your partner a heart as well.

    I am allowing 2 weeks to send your package - if you really feel you need more time contact me and explain why and I will consider upping it to 3 weeks for everyone.

    Have fun with this and try to make your partner feel special and make their day brighter!

    Because this is more than just a quick basic swap I will not be allowing newbies. You must have at least a 4.85 rating (no 1 or 3 ratings within the last YEAR - I will be checking) and at least 10 hearts. You also must have a well filled out profile (so your partner will know how to properly spoil you). I don't want anyone flaking or disappointing their partner.

    Any questions just send me a message! Have fun!

I'm the Nina in question! ;) I'm full of ideas! Thank you Jean for carefully sculpting my idea and turning it into a cool sounding swap! Can't wait til partners are set! Yippee! Happy swapping, people!

What is considered a newbie? I have been a member for a while but have not swapped in awhile.

jeanland 03/18/2013 #

Hi ~ user2026! Wow, it has been awhile since you've been back to SwapBot! I'm going to send you a private message... Maybe we can do a personal swap, just between the two of us! :o)

I wish I could do this swap!! Sounds like so much fun

jeanland 03/20/2013 #

Hi Amberraex0 ~ I'll probably be doing another one of these in a month or so... I'm sure you will qualify by the time that comes around! So just check back! :o)

where do we find our rating

jeanland 03/21/2013 #

schaiice ~ Go to your profile and look in the upper right area. It will show you your rating, how many hearts you have, etc. Don't forget that you also need to have at least 10 hearts to join & a well filled out profile. :o)

Okay... this one was so much fun, I went nutz the day I got my partner assignment!! My swap package is already in the mail (3 days after the sign-up deadline) and I can't wait to hear what my partner has to say about the goodies I chose for her! LOL!! It was like playing SANTA at Christmas! LOVED this swap!

@pkmccann I'm so excited to send too but I have to wait for stuff to arrive from etsy before I can send :( this has been so fun :)

jeanland 04/ 2/2013 #

I know what you mean @pkmccann I just mailed out a box of goodies to my partner! I really hope she likes everything! It is just so fun to go crazy and do something good for someone else!

I'll be doing another one of these swaps in a month or so... If anyone wants me to message them when I have another one up just let me know and I'll send you a PM! :o)
