This is a newbie friendly swap. It should be extremely easy to do as long as you follow the guidelines below. Experienced swappers are also welcome.

Just choose three different things from the list below and send to your partner before the deadline.

a note on how you came to find swap bot

1 unused notecard with envelope

1 sheet of stickers - none smaller than a US penny

1 unused postcard

3 handmade envelopes

1 craft pattern (full instructions start to finish)

1 bookmark

A letter set (2 sheets of stationery w/matching envelope)

5 different sheets of note/memo paper

A handmade item

1 ATC (they are for trading!)

3 decorative bandages

5 stamped images on white cardstock

3 book pages

1 piece of fabric at least 4x4 inches

3 - 4x6 decorative recipe cards

2 recipes on decorative recipe cards

3 scrap pieces of decorative paper (at least ATC size)

3 blank Friendship Books (check partner profile on this first)

1 small gift bag

A Valentine item

What to do:

Choose three different things that are on the list and send to your partner by the deadline. They must be different - example: DO NOT send 3 bookmarks. This does not count. And no, a handmade bookmark DOES NOT count as 2 items. This is not a profile based swap, but do check your partners profile…it’s silly to send Friendship Books if your partner doesn’t do them!

Newbies welcomed, with a well filled out profile (I DO CHECK). No recent/unexplained low ratings.

Also ~ I live in "Boonyville" and sometimes our internet connection isn't very good. This is especially true when it rains & in the winter months. So please be patient, partners will get assigned and if needed I will extend the send date.

Also I will angel swaps, but it is up to you to contact me. I would appreciate the following information: if you have contacted them; who your partner was (so I can report them as flakers); and your address.

PLEASE NOTE - This swap had almost 200 participants in December. I try to check profiles throughout the month, but it still does take time before I assign partners.

I'm sorry to the people who couldn't wait for December's swap...my MIL passed away and family is more important to me than swapping.

Also to newbies....yes, I will remove you from the swap if you do not have a well filled profile. Why? Many swap-botters feel if you can't be bothered to fill out your profile then you will probably not be bothered rating and many flakers do not bother to fill out their profile. Plus a well filled profile helps your partner to send you an extra special swap. It is very easy to get ideas, just click on and established member's icon/user id and that will take you to their page.

And if I do remove you, please do not send me a bitter, hate-filled note. I really didn't need to read how much you dislike me and what a horrible person I am the day my MIL died. Frankly, I don't need to read that at any time.

This swap sounds like it could be very interesting. Can't wait to see how it all works. Very curious to see what comes my way.

itsmehere 12/25/2013 #

Could you make it international next time? I really want to participate :)

debbee2014 12/26/2013 #

This is my first swap, I'm very excited to see what I will get. I'm getting my things all together so when I get my name I can send it off right away.

SusieQ730 12/28/2013 #

WOW! 130 people? This is the biggest swap I've seen on Swap-Bot so far. This should be interesting :)

sherig47 12/28/2013 #

So sorry to hear of the loss of your MIL my sympathy to you and your family.

institches 12/31/2013 #

@itsmehere - There is an international one. I don't host it, but someone did ask me a few months ago if they could use this idea. You'll just have to keep watch.

@debbee2014 - sorry, but I had to delete you. Your profile is very sketchy. Once you fill it out more you will be welcome to join.

@SusieQ730 - The Christmas pick 3 had 199 participants.

institches 12/31/2013 #
