Since this swap theme was so well received the first go-around I thought I may host it monthly.

You will have 1 partner. This swap is to share a few fun things that someone can use in their planner (calendar, Filofax, etc.). You will put a few items in an envelope with at least one 0.46 stamp (a little more is always nice!). Please include your user name along with a little note and at least 3 of the following:

  • 3 journal cards (double-sided, 3x4 or 4x6 - they make great "to do" lists)

  • 3 "unusual" index cards (grid, bright colors, bookmarker ones)

  • dashboard(s) (a general 4x6 or 5x7 size could be used in most planners)

  • Handmade Tabs (at least 5)

  • Handmade Envelope/Pocket

  • stickers/labels (at least 10 and can be smaller since they will be used in a planner)

  • washi tape samples (at least 5 samples of 10"+ each)

  • fun paperclips (at least 2) (fun shape, oversized, etc.)

  • magnetic bookmark

  • bookmark (handmade or store bought)

  • pad of pretty or fun-shaped post-its/post-it flags

  • Sharpie Pen, gel pen

  • Planner Charm/Dangle

  • positive/fun quotes that could be glued into a planner (at least 4)

This is sender's choice, but please take a look at your partner's profile and try to send things they will enjoy.

This swap is newbie friendly (we all have to start someplace), but please take this seriously and fulfill your commitment. I will angel, but I shouldn't have too since we are all so organized with our planners. :-) Also, let's all be really open to what we receive and as long as you receive 3 of the items listed above please rate a 5.

If you are a newbie, please make sure that you have provided information about yourself, likes/dislikes, etc. on your profile page! Take a look at other profiles for an idea of what to include!

UPDATE: I would love to see what you are sending and receiving for this swap. If you are on Instagram or Twitter please post a picture with #swapbotplanner

I missed the first swap. Anyone up for a private swap to get me started?

fabkimberly 01/16/2014 #

@polkadotty - I am always up for a private swap - especially for these types of goodies. I will message you!

GlitterBird 01/29/2014 #

Round one was so much fun, I'm glad to see round 2!!

Chtxjamcin69 01/31/2014 #

I would love to swap with someone

Gdoodle 02/ 2/2014 #

If anyone wants to do a private swap with this theme but on a slightly bigger scale, lemme know :D

Hishunnibunni 02/ 2/2014 #

I'm new to everything, swapbot as well as the decorating, I would love to join but also wanted to know how or where to get the listed items. I live in a tiny town with no fun stationary.

cm99camper 02/ 2/2014 #

If anyone is interested but in Canada and would to swap... let me know!

fabkimberly 02/ 3/2014 #

@chtxjamcin69 I bet if you filled out your profile a bit others would be more inclined to do a private swap with you and help you get a bit more established on Swap-Bot. Feel free to take a look at others' profile to get an idea of what to include!

@hishunnibunni There are a ton of places online to get really cute stuff, but there is also fun stuff to be found at craft stores, bookstores, etc. Even Target and Walmart have some goodies!

wishfulkelly 02/ 3/2014 #

Hi, can make an international swap for this? :)

fabkimberly 02/ 3/2014 #

@wishfulkelly please feel free to set up an international swap with the same theme. I just don't host or participate in International Swaps due to expense and difficulty in getting to the post office to mail them out.

CourtneyAnne 02/ 3/2014 #

I would love to know what a "dashboard" is :)

beccat613 02/ 3/2014 #

I just started on this website, I have no idea how to really do anything or is the people we "swap" with will be assigned. Can anyone help?

Brownie 02/ 3/2014 #

I am with beccat613. Need some help because I am new.

ReneeW0lf 02/ 3/2014 #

I just signed up for this. Can't wait to get going. I will fill out my profile tomorrow. My question is when will I be assigned my partner and how will I be notified.

Kellyo1026 02/ 4/2014 #

If you all like planner related swaps we have a group called planning corner friends. We have swaps all the time. I loved the first round of this one b

fabkimberly 02/ 4/2014 #

@courtneyanne - I dashboard is a laminated surface (usually personalized or made from pretty paper) that you can stick post-its with "to dos" on or get an extra stash of post-its/flags on. Some have holes in them or in this case since we don't know what kind of filofaxes/planners everyone has it could just be a basic 4x6 size with no holes.

@beccat613 & @Brownie & @ReneeW0lf Once the swap closed on 2/10/14 I will then have Swap-Bot assign the partners on 2/11/14. You will receive a message from Swap-Bot saying partners have been assigned and then can click through to see who you will be sending your items to (please note, who you send to doesn't equal who is sending to you).

@Kellyo1026 Thanks for the group info. I just requested to join!

beccat613 02/ 4/2014 #

Okay! Sounds good, thank you so so so much!

waldfee 02/ 5/2014 #

There's already the second round of an international version: @http //www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/167776 :)

fabkimberly 02/ 5/2014 #

Thanks to all that have joined this swap and made it #1 this week! So exciting to see so many planner geeks (and I use that affectionately) like me! I will set up a round 3 soon!

destiney1 02/ 5/2014 #

so how do you search hashtags on instagram?

ReneeW0lf 02/ 6/2014 #

Wait this is on Instagram? Under what?

heidiling 02/ 6/2014 #

the link for the international swap does not work, and I can not seem to fint it - is there an interntional version up? I would love to join!

fabkimberly 02/ 6/2014 #

@heidiling - try this: http://www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/167776

@Destiney1 - from your Instagram app you should a compass icon across the bottom. If you click on that you can enter the hashtag above. Not a lot as been shared so far and I have to admit I haven't been good at sharing mine either!

@ReneeW0lf - I've asked the participants to share what they sent and receive with #swapbotplanner on Instagram or Twitter.

Mistikate 02/11/2014 #

Are partners going to be assigned soon?

fabkimberly 02/11/2014 #

@mistikate They have been assigned!

bethanyweb 02/11/2014 #

bethanyweb 02/11/2014 #

Hishunnibunni 02/14/2014 #

I so hope I sent the right stuff, I'm such a worrier.

Artistic 02/19/2014 #

A packet is en route to my partner. Enjoy!
