Send A Smile! #5 USA Only

EDITED!! 10-2-14

I am editing to reiterate the "send a smile" aspect of the swap. I have had complaints from previous participants that the swaps they have received have been ripped open with contents falling out do to improper packaging. Also that their partners are not even checking profiles. PLEASE send something your partner will LIKE! The object is to SEND A SMILE!! You want your partner to be excited and happy, not disappointed and feeling let down.

The senders choice aspect is not an excuse to send junk or crap! It means YOU get to choose what to send to bring a smile to their face. This is not meant to be an "expensive swap" but if you don't have anything to send, you might need to get some supplies to have on hand. I understand that not everyone likes the same things, but you can make an effort to make your partner happy. A little time and thought can go a long way!

Hope these changes insures the upcoming swap fun for all participants!

This swap is going to a weekly swap. If you don't have time to send on time, there will be another swap very soon!

I have seen a few swaps somewhat similar to this, but haven't seen one recently, so I created one.

This is a very easy and inexpensive swap. Newbie Friendly.

  • 1 One Partner

  • Send at least 3 different items, as close to 1 oz of flat items. This means it will cost 1 Forever Stamp to ship. You can send more, but one stamp is all that the swap requires.

  • Send your items in a Decorated envelope, (handmade, rubber stamped, stickers, doodled, washi tape, colorful writing, ect.) send something besides a plain envelope!

  • Senders Choice. This is senders choice, but you might have items your partner will love! Its always recommended to check your partners profile, try to send items they can use.

  • Send on time. Don't wait till the last minute to send. If you want to "send a smile" don't make your partner worry that you have forgotten about them.

  • You are trying to make your partner smile! Put some time and thought into it! :)

Suggestions of what you can send....

  • Postcards
  • Note cards
  • ATCs (Artist Trading Cards)
  • Stationery
  • Recipes
  • Smash book items
  • Ephemera (book pages, maps, tickets, foreign languages,ect)
  • Used Postage Stamps
  • Washi Tape
  • Ribbons
  • Stickers
  • Stamped images
  • Die-cuts
  • Rub-ons

Don't send a envie with just 3 stickers, that will NOT make your partner smile. The items must be different, you can send stickers, and a postcard, and some washi tape. Mix it up, send a variety, send something to your partner, so that if you received it in the mail, it would make you smile!

The list is endless, you can send any flat items that you think your partner will like! When partners are assigned, check their profile for ideas!

3-D, or thicker items may require additional postage. Make sure it has the proper postage, and the envie is reinforced, if needed, so it can survive the trip.

Please don't send items that are dirty, torn or trash. Some people can be creative with all sorts of random items, don't rate down if you don't like the items, simply send them out in another swap. This is NOT an excuse to send junk. Send items that you think your partner can use!

This swap will be open to swappers with at least 4.98 or higher. Newbies welcome with a well filled out profile. I do check, You will be removed if you haven't filled it out before the swap closes. No unexplained 1s or 3s. I will angel if required, but flakers will not be allowed in any of my future swaps.

If you receive a decorated envie on time, with at least 3 different items, you should rate a 5. Hearts are always optional. Please play nice.

If you have any questions, please post them below or send me a message. Have fun and happy swapping!

Hello - Newbie here! I'm a little confused about when it says "This swap is going to a weekly swap." Can you please explain. :) Thanks

LoveToCraftInAZ 10/ 1/2014 #

Sorry about the confusion. It means that I will host the next one in about a week, so no worries if you can sign up for this one. You will get your partner when the deadline closes, then send one envie and wait for one envie from your partner. Then if you want to sign up for the next one, it will be coming up soon! Hope this helps! :)
