For this swap, you will have one (1) partner. You will find something flat and light weight in your backyard, put it in an envie, and send it on it's way! Your item should only require one forever (49 c) forever stamp. Please don't send dirty/decayed/bad smelling items. Some examples include, but are not limited to:

-unique leaf.

-pressed/small flower

-seed pod

-piece of discarded paper

-strand/tuft of animal fur (check your partner's profile for hair allergies please!)

-small bag of interesting dirt

-moss (please put in plastic bag)

If you don't have a backyard, you can always choose something from a place you frequent, such as a park or lake, even the outside of your apartment complex. If I get a good response with this swap, I'll host another international version, but for now US only swappers please :) unrated/newbies will be allowed to join with a complete profile. I'm a nature lover and hope we can all enjoy a little nature from someone else's state!

I've edited this to a type 3 swap because I feel this will take a little creativity, not to mention trekking around outside :)

A seed pod may require more than one stamp same with bags of dirt.Unless it's just a seed like from a flowering plant.

@ladydy5 depending on sizes of items, the point is not to send anything that will require more than one stamp. So a small spare button bag of dirt or a flat seed pod should be fine :)
