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 foreign coin

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!)

An advertising ink pen

10 used postage stamps

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)

1 sheet of 30 address labels for your partner

1 small gift bag

A St. Patrick's 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.

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

Also ~ I live in "Boonyville", Michigan 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.

@DezCollins - Artist Trading Cards. Do a search for them, they are fun!

How do I receive a partner?

jburb 01/20/2014 #

You will receive your partner once the signup date has passed and the host checks everyone in the swap to make sure everything is correct. the host will then click a button that will automatically assign partners. You will be able to view it in the top right hand corner in a little box of various links. One of them will tell you who your partner will be.

institches 01/23/2014 #

@bgw728 and @r4venxx - sent you each a private e-mail explaining how partners are assigned and how to rate.

bgw728 01/24/2014 #

I got the message r4venxx, thank you! I'm good to go.

An advertising pen? Like a pen from a local business with its logo on it?

institches 01/29/2014 #

@BettyinTexas - You cannot request what you want sent to you.

institches 01/29/2014 #

@emilturtle - yes.

How great to see all the newbies! And congrats, institches, for a #1 swap!

BettyinTexas 01/30/2014 #

I wasn't requesting I was telling what I could send to my partner.

BettyinTexas 02/ 3/2014 #

Have the swaps been posted yet? Still waiting. Anxious. Excited.

Opps I realized today when I received my package that I didn't put in a note with my user name. I am a newbie and didn't think of that. So sorry. Trdoy is Trudy White.
