Description:

Last year this swap was a huge success! Thank you all for that! I decided to host another one, hoping more people will join & spread more love~ I had 204 people swap love in the mail. Let's see if I can make it to 304!

Who doesn't love "LOVE"?! Who wants a Valentine?!

For this swap, you will have 1 partner, and to that 1 partner you will send 1 Valentine card via snail mail.

This is Sender's Choice (meaning: store bought kiddie Valentines, store bought adult~like a Hallmark card or something, something handcrafted from your stash, etc.)

Optional: If you'd like to decorate the envelope/happy mail style it, please feel free to do so! I'd love to receive something fun & happy in my mail box! Wouldn't you?!

I opened this up to all because I would love to receive any type of unique Valentine's Day card in any language!

Please have a completed/fully filled out profile. Take care of any 1's or 3's that you can to the best of your ability before joining this swap. If you have a personal issue with low ratings, please message me to work something out.

Please remember that this is Sender's Choice. Do not rate down if you receive a card that you do not like. You only rate down if you do not receive the swap.

I can Angel if necessary, but I hope I won't have to since we are talking about spreading some LOVE!

Any questions or concerns, please let me know.

Happy Swapping & I can't wait to get a little LOVE in my mailbox! :)

ATTENTION: unfortunately I have already had to ban users from this swap. I asked out of respect for all swappers involved to please private message me if you have any "1's" or "3's" that are questionable. Someone signed up for this swap that flaked on a FREE Bookmark swap that I recently hosted. Really? Why would you do that? That is so unfair to all the Swap-Bot users who have signed up for this swap. PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONABLE "1's" or "3's".

Had so much fun last year and got a handmade blank beautiful card. May keep it up by sending that this year.

LindaRichards 01/ 4/2014 #

@Darkestlina thank you!

laurenvicknair 01/ 6/2014 #

What does Angel mean?

bluecrayons 01/ 6/2014 #

lauren angel means she will send in if someone gets flaked on.

darkestlina - that sounds so cute and kewl.

i already have my valentines. there scratch and sniff and smell soooo yummy.

LindaRichards 01/ 7/2014 #

@bluecrayons I love the things you send, so awesome. Glad you're joining up! Thank you for answering @laurenvicknair s question!

EveeButton 01/ 8/2014 #

To clarify, do we send a blank valentine our partner can use or do we sign it? Thanks!

LindaRichards 01/ 8/2014 #

@EveeButton sign it & write a little note if you wish.

cagirliegirl 01/11/2014 #

This sounds so great! Thanks for coordinating this.

keyscullar 01/11/2014 #

Already made my card! Can't wait to get my partner to send it to.

Lucine 01/17/2014 #

I am nr. 204 ...... waw! You have another huge success this year with this spreading LOVE swap:-)) Congrats @LindaRichards !

Lucine 01/17/2014 #

And of course no flaking I hope, but if you need help to Angel @LindaRichards I am willing to help you out.

LindaRichards 01/17/2014 #

@Lucine thank you! I appreciate your offer as well!

LindaRichards 01/17/2014 #

@cagirliegirl thank you!

Grapefruit7625 01/18/2014 #

If you need another angel, I'll help as well!

HannaMcGowin 01/19/2014 #

I can angel as well!! But you might go through participants before you assign partners. There are at least 10 people with 1's in this swap.

LindaRichards 01/20/2014 #

Thank you for the offers! @Grapefruit7625 & @HannaMcGowin

Jamnj 01/20/2014 #

Can you tell me where to find my swap mate? I am a newbie and don't know where to find my partners address?

Babytreese 01/20/2014 #

She hasn't opened the swap yet Jamnj...

LindaRichards 01/20/2014 #

Ok, whew! That was a lot of folks to go through! I have banned all swappers who did not contact me prior to the assigning of partners for questionable 1 or 3 ratings & I have banned swappers who did not complete their profiles. Partners are finally assigned! Thank you all for patiently waiting!

LindaRichards 01/20/2014 #

@Jamnj please look at the top right hand side for the information you need.

@Babytreese thank you!

starhiker 01/20/2014 #

Thanks for taking the time to sort thru swappers before you assigned!

LindaRichards 01/20/2014 #

@starhiker thank you. I have received several "unhappy" emails as to why I banned swappers from this swap. I think the rules were pretty clear-several people did not follow the simple rule of contacting me prior to joining to let me know that they had any questionable 1 or 3 ratings-so I banned them. A few other swappers had a current 1 rating (meaning this month or December) so I had to ban them as well. I'm sorry that this had to happen but I wanted a private message so we could work something out. A few other swappers had questionable 1 or 3 ratings & private messaged me so I allowed them to join and we worked things out. Thank you.

LindaRichards 01/20/2014 #

I also received more "unhappy" emails questioning me as to why they were banned...I specifically stated that your profile must be fully completed. 1 paragraph "About Me" does not qualify as a completed profile in my book. I'm sorry.

Jamnj 01/20/2014 #

Thank you for the information about my partners address. I so enjoyed reading her profile, and finishing up the valentine card tonight. Thank you for creating this swap. I am so excited to be getting a valentine from someone I don't know yet! It is almost like a fantasy to get a card from an unknown!hope you have a nice valentines day!

femkevd 01/21/2014 #

Hi! Do I need to send you my address? Or will my swap partner be able to get it from my profile?

bluecrayons 01/21/2014 #

@femkevd swapbot gives you your partner. you can find it at the very top right, click where it says "see who i send too". :-)

LindaRichards 01/22/2014 #

@bluecrayons thank you for explaining that.

LindaRichards 01/22/2014 #

@Jamnj thank you for being so excited & upbeat. I hope you enjoy this swap & have a great Valentine's Day!

Some people think that rules surely doesn't apply to THEM. SMH

Snailmail1772 01/25/2014 #

Thanks for sticking to your rules and I'm sorry you have to endure these unhappy emails but I appreciate your efforts to keep this a flake free swap.

LindaRichards 01/29/2014 #

@Snailmail1772 thank you for your kind words & support. I think this may be the last swap I host for awhile.

rainbowfrogs77 02/ 3/2014 #

I am happy to Angel if needed!
