Newbies are quite incredible. Being one of the founders in Newbie Helpers has meant a lot to me. When we're seasoned members life's happened between the time we were newbies and OH the stuff we've seen on SB has hardened us. It's time for a swap like this.

We will buy a jar or even better, repurpose a jar. I have a pickle jar I've cleaned up and am dying to use. We can decorate it, or not. That isn't part of the swap.

The swap is to cut 10 strips of paper (preferably plain printer paper in light color: white, yellow, pink, orange) and easily foldable for our jars. On each of those pieces of paper you will write something happy, encouraging, thoughtful, etc. It can be a quote. It can be a tasteful joke. It can be personal note. It should only be a sentence or two so that it can be legible. And yes, it can even be printed/typewritten.

You will do this 5 times as you will have 5 partners.

When you receive your strips, fold them and put them into your jar without reading them. When you need a moment of happiness, you will have several to go to.

This swap was encouraged by the kindness of a newbie who shared her joy jar with us and who changed the course of my day today.

NOTE: The last day to sign up was purposely made on my girlfriends 40th birthday. She's someone who makes me happy. We will be out celebrating and with the number of people signed up, I will have to check every profile to keep our swap safe. I will be assigning partners on the 30th or 31st at the very latest. Thanks for your patience.

The Electronic version of this swap. Please read my swap and rules carefully.

One of my partners for this swap is on this list. Since this is my first time with this experience is it my responsibility to contact her about not sending my item? Any advice would be helpful. Thanks.

Has anyone received from me yet? I placed this early in the morning in the blue post boxes at a post office that I usually don't use. I just heard this morning from a friend that there's been complaints of that particular office. This worries me as I sent on time.

@Maooose It is HER responsibility to contact you. If she has not contacted you nor do you receive from her in 2 weeks, you will have to rate her a 1 and I will angel. With me being the host though, you won't have to worry about remembering to do that though as I will contact each user to remind them as I prepare to angel. Hopefully it won't be necessary, but I'm here regardless.

Thank you Diane for the info. I have not been contacted by her yet just so you know.

I can angel as well if you'd like, Di. This is a lot of people to flake.

Mine were mostly International but if you need an angel in the USA I will be glad to help out. Let me know.
