I love Happy Mail! So here's the idea: We all have things we love, but usually, we have more than we need (I know I do!) And some of us (me) have committed to using up some of our stash (papers, stickers, washi tape, deco tape, note cards etc) before buying any new stuff, right? I mean, we all love to share what we love, don't we? LOL! Let's not end up on that show Hoarders! Let's send some cute, adorable, wonderful happy mail! This is inside the USA and we're going to say everything you can fit in a greeting card envelope (not a letter size or legal size) and mail for 2 (YES 2!) 49 cent FOREVER stamps!!! Wow... such a challenge!!! Check the USPS website to make sure you understand postage, but for 2 49 cent stamps, you can send 3 oz... however if there is a 'rigid object' in the envie, it takes $1.12 to mail it... your call on that one. So, no recent 1's or 3's and must have 5 5's in something other than a Type 1 swap to join. Thank you and let's have fun!!!

ps... If someone wants to create an International version, please do so... I won't because I don't want to pay International postage... Thanks!

This sounds like a wonderful Swap and I always have stack stuff of papers, stickers, washi tape and ect that I say I am going to use but never do lol.

Margo 03/22/2015 #

Awesome! I will ask people to note that this is a sharing swap--- share the things you love--- and I think most do. This is not a 'destash' swap:) (And if it gives you a great excuse for a newly loved pack of stickers that you want to share a few of, I understand...lol)

Is everyone already looking through their favorite things and pulling out a little to share? I know I am...!!! And soon, I'll have room for more;) Lol!!!

And is anyone else finding themselves singing that song from the Sound of Music?

Margo 03/25/2015 #

I am watching the participant list actively... and banning accordingly.

"Sound of Music" I have a lovely picture of the first group of people in the film, then I have a picture of this same group 45 years later. Very lovely.

I might try to Google that:)

Oh my... did you see the 2015 Oscars where Lady Gaga does her tribute to Julie Andrews? It is amazing... and not in typical Gaga fashion...

Actively looking at all profiles before assigning partners.

What is the approximate measurement for the greeting card? It seems like I have different sizes. Thanks

evieroz 04/ 7/2015 #

Sorry, I meant the size of the envelope.

Margo 04/ 7/2015 #

There is the 'notecard' which tends to be a 3"x5" or there about... The greeting card size is usually about 4/5" x 5"/6".

shouldn't it be type 3 since it requires two stamps and not one?

myshoesdontmatch 04/12/2015 #

type 3 is for packages, type 2 is for flat mail and a 2 stamp envelope is considered flat mail according to usps :)

TC 04/12/2015 #

Type 3 swaps can be flat mail, if the swap is cost- or time-intensive. ATCs, hand crafted notecards, several packages of stickers are all examples of flat mail that's Type 3.

myshoesdontmatch 04/12/2015 #

oh yes crafts are definitely type 3 also!
