Chance to win WASHI TAPE & DISPENSER!!! See below!


You must have completed (and been rated for) a minimum of 10 type 3 swaps.

You must have at least a 4.95 rating. (If I see unexplained 1's or 3's, I will send you a message before removing you from this swap. I do believe in second chances, but I also reserve the right to ban questionable participants, as any good host would.)


Pick one of the following theme ideas and fill a small box for your partner (sender's choice, but always nice to see if you get some good ideas from your partner's profile).

Themes are:

  • Tea Time In A Box
  • Party In A Box
  • Gardening In A Box
  • Pamper Me In A Box
  • Vacation In A Box
  • A Day At The Office In A Box
  • Welcome Home In A Box
  • All Things Crafty In A Box
  • Date Night In A Box
  • Kiss The Cook In A Box
  • Hug In A Box
  • The Great Outdoors In A Box
  • My Inner Child In A Box

The theme is left up to you and your interpretation, but be sure to include a note in your package letting them know what theme you picked.

Box size should be 6x6x6 or Small Flat Rate box (minimum) and include at least 4 different (new) items, and be a minimum of $5 value before postage.

Please have a well filled out profile.

EDITED TO ADD (6/25/2014): It is amazing this swap has reached the top 10 . . . even the #1 swap spot and I have been blown away! Please note that I feel it necessary to include some extra information since it seems some folks are joining that may not meet requirements. I will be reviewing all profiles to see if the minimum requirements are met, checking to be sure current swaps on your profile are not late, and also reading through comments and ratings (maybe some of them, maybe all of them). It is my hope that this swap is an enjoyable experience for everyone. :o) As I mentioned above, I reserve the right to ban questionable participants, as any good host would. If you have any questions, please feel free to PM me. :o) Thanks for reading!


6/27 Hosting - Good Link to Read While swapping is fun, I do take hosting seriously in order to provide the best experience possible!


And now for the bonus!

Everyone who participates in this swap will be entered in a drawing to win a brand new We R Memory Keepers Washi Tape & Dispenser Click here. It looks just like this.

I will pick the winner once the sign up date has passed, and I will mail the Washi Tape & Dispenser once I see that person has been rated with a 5 (which lets me know they completed the swap appropriately). :o)


I will be reviewing all profiles and ratings prior to assigning partners to be sure I am the best host I can be . . . so make sure you qualify before joining!

P.S. The description for the dispenser says ..."Also includes 1 tape dispenser turntable which holds up to 30 rolls of tape", however, it actually holds 16 rolls plus 4 more rolls if you stack them in the middle spindle. (Unless all your rolls were skinny...then it might fit 30). :o)

moonlightlaura 06/ 8/2014 #

What size small box, one person's interpretation of small may different for someone else. Small as in a small flat rate box or bigger?

moonlightlaura 06/ 8/2014 #

Oh never mind, I just saw the size, sorry! I must have overlooked it when i was reading lol

LittleDonnaGirl 06/ 8/2014 #

Lol :o) By the way, I enjoyed reading your profile @moonlightlaura I had to laugh when I saw your listing for PooPourrie :o) Ever since I saw the commercial (online) I have been thinking about getting some as stocking stuffers. :o) Thanks for joining my swap! Let me know if you have any other questions.

moonlightlaura 06/10/2014 #

LOL @LittleDonnaGirl thanks! I do love the poopurri stuff...I bought tons when they were having their Christmas sale...if you want I can mail you a bottle to try out before you buy :) Just let me know! :)

LittleDonnaGirl 06/12/2014 #

Ooooo, I would LOVE a bottle if you can spare it! After I posted the above comment about PooPourrie I hopped over to Amazon.com to see what I could find. Ever since then, PooPourrie ads have been showing up here and so now OF COURSE I must try some!

I like a lot of these themes, especially the kitchen and art journal ones.

LittleDonnaGirl 06/27/2014 #

Began reviewing profiles this evening. Will finish tomorrow (removing those who do not qualify) and assign partners. :o) Any questions, you can leave a comment here and/or PM me.

LittleDonnaGirl 06/28/2014 #

Finished my review of all profiles! Whew! Several folks removed themselves after I sent an email asking them to review the minimum qualifications (I hate banning). Unfortunately, I did have to remove 11 this morning and sent PMs to 6 folks about the "appearance" of late swaps on their dash to find out the status. I will return to review responses, see if I need to remove anyone else and then assign partners!

LittleDonnaGirl 06/28/2014 #

4 pm . . . partners have been assigned! Happy Swapping!

LittleDonnaGirl 06/28/2014 #

I assigned numbers to everyone and used Random.org for the Washi Tape dispenser and the winner is . . .

@Kitastic !!!!!

Congratulations! After your swap has been rated with a 5 I will send you your prize!

Kitastic 06/28/2014 #

Yay! Thank you! Wow I never win anything. Happy dance of joy!!!!

Artistic 07/ 3/2014 #

A box is on the way to my partner with delivery confirmation via priority mail. Enjoy!

pbcquiltlover 07/14/2014 #

On pins and needles waiting for ________ to receive her box! I went way overboard on one craft item so ___________ is receiving 100's of one particular wish list entry, all old and collected for years but not used by me very often. Hope she likes them! Also mentioned zippers in the letter I included but forgot to slip them in - found something else specific to her wish list at the last moment and crammed that in, sealing the box before I realized the zippers didn't make it. They weren't specified on the wish list, thought, so I don't think she'll be too devastated...

Jamnj 07/22/2014 #

How about: Treasure box, profile based;wish list a seasonal ( springtime, summer, fall and winter) box, Mail box (stationary, stickers, stamps notecards, wax sealer, pens +) Favorite colors box filled with things that are swappers favorite color. Crayola box: all things crayola

LittleDonnaGirl 07/25/2014 #

I love the messages I see above! How fun!

LittleDonnaGirl 07/25/2014 #

Noted two swaps have not been marked sent. I added the following messages to these profiles today:


@CraftiNana Hi There! I hope you are doing okay. I noticed that your swap hasn't been marked "sent" yet for Mini Care Package #3. Would you please let me know if you have been in communication with your partner? I read your message about your vehicle being broken down. I know how frustrating that can be. :( Please let me know the status of the swap and I hope things have improved for you!


@beccat613 Hi There! I hope you are doing okay. I noticed that your swap hasn't been marked "sent" yet for Mini Care Package #3. Would you please let me know if you have been in communication with your partner?

LittleDonnaGirl 08/28/2014 #

@CraftiNana and @beccat613 did not send to their partners.

Angel packages were sent this week to @Halewis1213 and @Boredwifey
