DS: Flat Mail Round Robin

Launch gallery slideshow

Swap Coordinator:Hollycarole92 (contact)
Swap categories: Challenges 
Number of people in swap:19
Location:Regional - USA
Type:Type 2: Flat mail
Last day to signup/drop:July 3, 2013
Date items must be sent by:November 15, 2013
Number of swap partners:1

This swap may or may not become a series, depending on how well it does. You do not have to be a member of the first swap to join later swaps, and vice versa.

As the hostess, I will initiate the envelope of SIX flat-mail items as soon as partners have been assigned.

If you sign up, you must wait until you receive the envelope from your "receives from" partner before you send to your "sends to" partner. Once people have been assigned partners, I'll send out a note with the order of sending, so that you have an idea of when to expect receiving it and so forth.

From your "receives from" partner, you will get an envelope marked "Flat Mail Round Robin #1" on it, and it will have six random flat-mail items in it, completely sender's choice.

You will look through the items, and take what you want, while replacing what you took with the same number of items.

If it works, the Round Robin can keep going!! Even after the "Send By" date. By the way, you should ignore the "send by" date (see below). You will always send and receive to/from the same partner.

The "Send By" date on this swap is pretty much just ignored and will be extended to way out there on the calendar and is for admin reasons only. (Long enough so that everyone will have a chance to get it/send it. If more than expected people join, I will extend the send-by date so that everyone can be rated before then.)

So here are some important rules! If you don't think you can handle it, don't join. It's easy, but takes some thought.

Send the envelope within 3 days of getting it.

Please RATE your partner as soon as you receive the envelope.

There should always be six items in the envelope. If there's not when you sent it out, it means you cheated.

You must take and add AT LEAST one thing, but can also take and add up to six, or the entire envelope.

I WILL be thoroughly checking profiles for this swap, and no newbies or recent poor ratings, because this is a little more than your average swap.

Also, it would be a good idea to add below when you've received/sent the Round Robin.

WoW this looks like F U N....

Any restrictions about the items...store bought versus crafted versus thrifted for instance?

Hollycarole92 06/24/2013 #

@ChinaCat Any item that would be considered for a flat-mail swap is okay. Of course, no trash or junk, which is why I'll be checking profiles to ensure there's quality swappers only.

Hollycarole92 09/30/2013 #

bgailk 10/ 3/2013 #

got it yesterday and sending it to walkthoreau today!

walkthoreau 10/ 5/2013 #

Hi All! I just received the envie today & just have to mention how disappointed I am. I messaged my partner to let her know that I am NOT taking anything before passing it on but I WILL take the time to check her profile to see her likes......shouldn't we all be doing this?! I realize we are nearing the end of the swap mailing list...but that shouldn't matter.I also realize that everyone's tastes are different, but again...check profiles. This is exactly the reason I signed up for the Dedicated Swappers group....to avoid getting disappointed. I have very varied artistic tastes and am not picky in most instances. ..but this envie of aprox. 15-20 items was not even close to anything I would ever consider using for anything (other than giving it to my co-workers 4 yr old) I just had to make a point & hope that going forward in the rest of this swap......we would indeed be "dedicated swappers"!

walkthoreau 10/10/2013 #

I sent the envie out to my buddy this past Monday (7th)...I just forgot to mark sent.

Hollycarole92 10/21/2013 #
