I've hosted this swap twice for the group Galactic Association of Silly Persons back in the day, this is the first public version! Members of that group are more than welcome

Many of the good things have a hole in them.

For this swap, you'll take a piece of string. It can be ribbon, yarn, twine or anything else you can think of as a string of some sort. A good length would be something like as long as it is from your thumb to your elbow. Could be more or less, it's up to you.

Then you take some 10 different objects that you can put on the string. For that they must have a hole or a loop or something so you can pass the string through them. Tying a knot is not an option here.

What the objects should be, then? Let's make this half sender's choice and half profile based. Beads (depending on the size and style, use 1-5 for one "object"), rings, key rings, buttons (same rules as with beads), rolls of tape, keys, safety pins, purse charms, scissors, millstones, car tires, Ferris wheels... Anything, that can be put on the string. Please pick something your partner will be able to use somehow: no crap, trash or rubbish or anything they claim to hate. Some parts could be handmade by you, store bought, thrifted, from your stash... As long as it's cool and silly and usable.

When you're done, tie the ends of your string so the objects won't fall off, package safely and send it to your partner.

The picture is a poor example of what I was thinking of put together in two minutes out of stuff I had near my desk. Do better than that!
