A few days ago I read this in a book and thought it would make a wonderful longtime swap. Due to my summer vacation this swap starts in September.

We'll fill a box with happy moments and send it to 1 partner (feel free to start collecting your happy moments right now):

  • Take a box Buy or make one – min. the size of a postcard, but feel free to use a bigger one. You don’t need to alter the box if it is already a neat one but if you f.e. use an old shoe box please make it look nice. Just make sure you send a box you’d love to

  • Take a piece of paper f.e. a notecard, a postcard, the bill of the restaurant you had a great dinner at, a notepad, a photography etc. and everyday you have happy moment write down the date and a few sentences to describe it to your partner.

  • Of course you can also add little things that made you smile (f.e. a small stone, a newspaper cutting, etc.) but pls don’t forget to describe why it made you happy!

:o) Examples of happy moments:

...the smile of a stranger or a kid ...your partner putting the trash out ...something you bought just for fun ...the singing of a bird in the morning ...a compliment ...a bunch of flowers ...just everything that makes you smile and brightens up your day even if it was only for a second.

After a few month our box should be filled with happy moments we are going to share with our partner!


  • International
  • No flakers (I’ll check your ratings and ban without further notice; a minimum of 4.8 is required)
  • Newbies are welcome but only with a filled profile
  • No rules for hearts – if you feel your partner deserves a heart please feel free to give a heart!

Any questions? Please aks! Otherwise….have fun :o)

Wow, long time til send off...are you sure about having 5 months to do this?

Obstminkerl 07/ 8/2008 #

In fact it goes over 6 months. Yes, I'm sure. Happy moments don't happen every day ;o)

hmm, this intrigues me. I need to focus on the little happy moments more, this sounds like a disciplined way to bring that into my life. I'm interested!

@ Lace

I'm sure this won't be a problem for your partner!

Februar 28 is just the last day it should be sent - so yes, of course you can send it earlier.
