Thanks for making the "Make My Planner Pretty" Swap Series so popular! It has hit the top swap category each time. I have tweaked the list of items below, so please make sure you read through it.

You will have 1 partner. This swap is to share a few fun things that someone can use in their planner (calendar, agenda, Filofax, etc.). You will put a few items in an envelope with at least one first-class/0.49 stamp.

Please include your user name along with a little note and at least 3 of the following:

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

5 "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

sheet of "dew drop" or color coding stickers

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 12"+ each)

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

magnetic bookmark

bookmark (handmade or store bought)

pretty or fun-shaped post-its/post-it flags

Sharpie Pen, gel pen (note, adding this to your envelope will most likely increase the postage due, please be mindful of that)

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. I will be monitoring this and send you a message if your profile needs to be updated to include more information.

Are you on Instagram or Twitter? We would love to see what you are sending and receiving for this swap. Post your pictures with #swapbotplanner to share!

Wow this sounds so AWESOME! Pity I'm outside of USA :(

Any international swaps like this one??

quelynn 03/10/2014 #

Just got myself a brand new planner. And I plan to fill it up. This will be fun to share and see what we each get.

@marchy I don't host any international swaps, but this one sounds kind of similar: http://www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/171040

My planner is called Day/Runner and its refills are number 3's. Not sure what measurements are on it but will find out and post it on my profile if my partner wants any info... I am excited..

Yayyy! I've just started keeping a real planner again because I realized I prefer paper over my smartphone. Its so much better! It is a personal size/A5 size binder.

I had no idea there were so many planner lovers out there! How awesome!

YardSailingMama 03/22/2014 #

I totally messed up my comment above... I should have said it is a personal size binder which fits 3 3/4" x 6 3/4" pages.

AmyHale 03/22/2014 #

I just got a planner for the first time and am loving it! Much better than my smartphone! Here is a link to the exact one I purchased plus sizes and paper refill sizes.


1" 7-ring binder holds 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" loose-leaf pages

This sounds so fun!!! Can you tell me what a "dashboard" is?

strawberrymilkmade 03/25/2014 #

This is my planner, the Filofax Doodle http://www.filofax.co.uk/doodle-organiser-1.html (in case size matters)

roesslet 03/26/2014 #

I love seeing what kind of planners everybody has. I have an A5 Filofax. I love it.

SuziLB 03/27/2014 #

I have 2 planners - I know right? Why settle for just one. The one I carry with me is a Filofax 6 hole 3 3/4 x 6 3/4. This is where I keep my appointments and daily notes and the one for my desktop where I keep my lists and goals and big calendar and such is a dayrunner 7 hole 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 - I invested in hole punches for both. I just started using them this year, so I am still trying to figure out what works best for me - and I think what works is lots of fun colorful stuff, and duplication, and did you know that when I was little my 2nd favorite place to hang out (next to the craft store) was the office stationary store?

Fun swap! My planner uses Day Runner refils that are 8.5" x 5.5" No. 438-341 Thanks for doing this!!

I have set up Make My Planner Pretty #5 - http://www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/172864?new=1

Instead of doing it at the beginning of the month I have pushed this one to late May because I am getting married at the beginning of May! :-)
