Description:

This is a USA swap only. Feel free to host your own international one.

Also there will be no monthly swap in July. I have a couple family reunions and a wedding and will be very busy in July

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

something red/white/blue

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.

I am no longer able to angel swaps at this time.

I am brand new at this and this swap looks perfect for me but I don't want to sign up until I full understand how it works. The date items must be sent by, June 14th, does that mean the date the package must be postmarked by? Thank you for any guidance!

institches 05/ 8/2014 #

@SweetMeChelle - yes, that is correct. June 14th is the last day to send your swap out.

This looks like a great first swap. I've swapped many ATCs on other sites before, but I'm totally new to this one. I'm excited to give it a try!

if someone makes an international one please pm me, I'd love one :)

institches 05/26/2014 #

Welcome to all the newbies!

institches 05/26/2014 #

@pazmo - I do believe there is an international version of this. You'll have to do a search.

Crafty lulu 5/27/2014 I am new to swap-bot but very excited about it. I do have one question that I am not sure about. Is each swap a one time deal, or are you automatically signed up for the next month's swap?

oldincisions 05/28/2014 #

Each swap is a one time deal. Some repeat each month, but you have to sign up each time

I just joined and this will be one if my first SWAPS. I live the choices here! I have been swapping alot if these items with my pen pals! I just started doing ATC s and love it. One question how do I get notified when a partner has been assigned to me?

It's my birthday in June! So, I'm hoping for some good stuff :) (like a letter set haha). I haven't done any swaps in months; so I'm excited to be back to doing them!

Ya know institches, until I read your comment on "that other swap" that is exactly like yours, word for word, I hadn't realized it wasn't your swap ... I have since dropped out of it, but honestly, that's crazy to "steal" your idea, WORD FOR WORD. Geesh. steps off of soapbox

LittleDonnaGirl 06/21/2014 #

I sent this PM to @jtrusmc today: Hi there! Did you receive my package for the Pick 3 Swap - June? If you did, would you please rate me? If you didn't, please let me know. :o)
