A (fun!!) type 3 swap, where you will have one partner. You will send your partner 20 little things. Pick 20 alphabets, then pick one of the two given options, for each alphabet from the list below.
Carefully and lovingly put everything in an envie or package and send it off to your partner.
This is encompassing the idea of swap-bot in one envie! An alphabetical scavenger hunt of sorts...see it as a swap-bot kit! Be creative, have fun, send something you would like to receive, be generous. Notes & Tips given below:
Creative Interpretation: Most items on the list are open to your interpretation. think out of the box, improvise, interpret creatively.Some of the prompts are literal - (Magnets, Ribbons etc.), whereas some can be interpreted in different ways, eg.
Quantity: There are no firm rules on how much of each but be generous! The envelope as a whole should loosely be around $6- $8 in value
Handmade vs. Store Bought:
Senders choice - as long as your bookmarks arent sticker slapped and your postcards aren't printed at home on flimsy paper .. handmade is good-- even better if it is profile based or customised (not compulsory) do not send Junk! ATC's or zines can be handmade or by another artist - give the artist full credit - ATC's are meant to be traded.
Senders choice vs. Receivers choice:
This is senders choice. But... since the quantities are not fixed and the preferences like store bought/ handmade etc are not set - its best you read the profile of your partner.. always nice to send them what they will love..try to find things with their fav themes (although it is not compulsory) and please read the dislike sections - dont send them things they specifically have asked not to be sent.
You may say I dont sew - I have no use for fabric or I'm not into postcards - what will I do with them.. or I have no idea what a zentangle even is... Let this swap be the start of something new.. try it out, nobodys perfect.. maybe you will end up discovering a new hobby..Think of it as a chance to de-stash too.. also the beauty of swap-bot is you receive all kinds of things and you find some use for them even if you have never used it before.. if we could control exactly what we received then we could just buy it! So get ready to be (pleasantly!) surprised! :)
