*5 handmade envelopes

Yes there are a few rules:

Everyone is invited unless you are a notorious no sender!!! This is an international swap so some things may not be sent overseas

Please limit the “I don’t want sent to me items to 2��? THAT MEANS YOU ARE ONLY TO LIST TWO THINGS FROM THE LIST!!!! This is supposed to be fun and a surprise! When people start listing and getting demanding it really takes the fun out of swapping!!!

PLEASE SEND YOUR ITEMS and SEND THEM ON TIME!!!! If you can’t fulfill your duties before the swap ends please drop out. Or if you change your mind, please drop out…The send by date means that is the date the items have to be postmarked by. If you have to send late, please e-mail your partners and tell them...

With the price increase in postage, please take your package to be wieghed at the post office for proper postage. No one likes to have to pay for their swaps!

Remember to Rate your partners when the ratings open. Alot of people are new in this swap and are depending on this rating to be allowed in others.

Be a good swapper! Remember it is important to be nice!!!!

For those who watch the list of swappers...I will be going through the list after the swap ends and banning people then. So that scammers who were banned can not start another profile and sign back up.

Moni 08/10/2008 #

Please do not send me postcards or buttons, thanks!

pianoheart 08/10/2008 #

Dry, commercially packaged seeds can go into Hawai'i. It's just live plants, plant material and loose seeds that may have dirt on them that the Dept. of Agriculture stops. Aloha!

aallen66 08/10/2008 #

I would rather not get coffee or tea since I don't care for either. Otherwise, whatever you send is great.

By the way, what exactly is a wax tart?

Meadow 08/12/2008 #

I don't need seeds and I don't drink coffee. Thanks!

janal14 08/16/2008 #

I would prefer not to get seeds, and I can't have anything with caffeine in it.

Thanks to my future swap partners!

Food and plant items won't get through our customs.........crafty items are probably the best choice, thanks.

Please no coffee/tea or wax tarts. Chocolate will melt. so please, if you send it let me know when you send so I can check the mail everyday till I get it.

craftyarmywife 09/ 7/2008 #

The only things I wouldn't want are candy bars (daughter has peanut allergy) or the coffee. Anything else is fair game, and to make it easy, we LOVE Dollar Tree stickers!!! LOL!

camelsamba 09/10/2008 #

What is a wax tart? And is it as likely to melt as chocolate?

Jamnj 09/10/2008 #

A wax tart us sort if like a tea candle w/out a wick--It's purpose is fragrance versus light/heat. They are usually made in small tart pans and melted in small poppouri burners or oil burners or sometimes just hang out in little bowls/dishes in bathrooms/kitchens and smell good.

dukiegal 09/10/2008 #

No coffee for me neither as I can't have caffeine. And as for the tea bags, no black tea (so it's not a no for tea but just black tea, i love tea, just can't have black tea due to the caffeine in it)

Please nothing digestable (coffee, tea, hot chocolate, seeds) and nothing that would melt (chocolate, wax tarts...) cause I'm in Florida. Hey, that still keeps it to just "two" things...

Please no food/drink [especially things that would melt, ex: chocolate, candles, wax tarts, candy...it's still warm and humid around here] or stickers. That's two things, right? =P

What exactly are swap cards?

Starberrie 09/13/2008 #

Swap cards, I believe are ATC, artist trading cards.

clkea 09/14/2008 #

What fun! Anything will be wonderful, except seeds and lip balm.

Nothing that melts - it's still hot here. No foods. Happy swapping.

yesiyesi 09/15/2008 #

Please no wax tart (no use for), printed labels (i have 10 billion), seeds (no where to plant them), boring post-it notes (like the standard yellow), candy (it'll melt), and lip balm (i only use a special company.

Thanks, sorry to list so many. If you're my partner, please feel free to PM me with any questions. Thank you!

Hi. Can someone please tell me what "SWAP CARDS" are? Thank you!!!

No seeds, please :)

Zefaniya 09/15/2008 #

The only thing I'm not interested in is the seeds as it's cold here already and I have a black thumb!

Starberrie 09/15/2008 #

A SWAP CARD, is a ATC [aka Artist Trading Card]. There is more information about it on this site

meggert 09/15/2008 #

I love it all except lip balm. I hate stuff on my lips. Other than that its all great.

ruthann46 09/15/2008 #

I'd rather not receive stickers and labels. Thank you.

choke 09/15/2008 #

As far as I'm aware a swap card is like a business card that has your swap-bot information on it. There is space for you to write the name of the swap, date, or other information on it to include with your swaps so the person receiving knows who it is from. An ATC is totally different.

ecoprincess 09/16/2008 #

Oh no, have the partners been assigned for this yet? If not would it be possible to add me in? I thought I'd signed up but when I just checked now, for some reason I haven't been and I wsa really hoping to do this! If not it's okay, I'll just have to keep an eye out for swap #4 ;)
