Description:

For this swap you will be stuffing a small flat rate box with your partners profile based goodies! If you choose to use the USPS to ship, they provide small flat rate boxes for free, and it cost $5.95 to ship it, if you ship within the USA. This swap will be for USA only, due to shipping costs. I am sorry in advance to international swappers.

You will have one partner, and you will check their profiles to see what they like. Since the shipping cost is one flat fee, please stuff this box to it's full potential! Let's keep the value to about $7.00.

This swap is newbie friendly, but do not flake! I can not angel this swap. Flaking is hurtful, and it damages trust.

I will check profiles, so please have a well filled out profile. Having a detailed profile will allow your partner the chance to see what to get you that you will really like! :)

Have fun swapping! Thanks :)

EDIT 8/20/15

First, thank you all who have joined my swap. I am very excited that the deadline is nearing and it won't be long before partners are assigned. HOWEVER, I have been keeping a close eye on all who join the swap, and I want to remind everyone that those who do not have a well filled out profile WILL be banned. I really do not want to ban anyone, so please make sure your profile is up to date and includes a LIKE/WISH LIST section. Due to the nature of this swap, it is important that your partner KNOWS what you like. Thank you all so much! Have a lovely day.

@swapwithjessica I am so sorry. :( I wish it wasn't so expensive to ship internationally. @watercolorgirl thank you for being so kind. :)

Yay Jordan, you're hosting!! I love swaps like this!

SpicyJordan 08/11/2015 #

Me too, Chamaea ! Thats why I created the swap, though I was nervous about hosting, but i figured I would give it a try :)

Here's a PF link with great advice for hosts! I still refer to it when hosting.

user2637 08/20/2015 #

@SpicyJordan - if a swapper is flaked on, will you angel?

SpicyJordan 08/21/2015 #

@user2637 I will only angel after every effort has been made to fulfill the swap between the two partners. I of course will do everything I can to prevent flaking from the start. I would not have decided to host if I was not willing to put forth the effort it takes to make a good swap. I have been checking every profile and I will continue to do so until the very end. And I will ban if I feel necessary. As you know, Angeling is not required. But I will be happy to do so if all else fails. Thank you for your question. :)

Read your swap description & requirement - No rating for this swap! Its an invitation for flakers to get $7.00 free stuff sent $5.95 in a box. What you are missing is words USPS PRIORITY MAIL, & a rating of 4.95 to keep it mostly free of problems. Priority Mail gives a tracking # & rating "weeds out" those who have intent to send their swap & only want stuff for free.

SpicyJordan 08/24/2015 #

@whippet - No one is required to join this swap. If anyone is deeply concerned about being flaked on they are welcome to drop the swap, or simply not join to begin with. Why is there no rating requirement ? Because everyone makes mistakes, and should be allowed a second chance. As I already mentioned to user2637 , I am keeping a close eye on everyone who is joining this swap, and I will ban if need be. Not everyone who has a rating less than 4.95 is a "flaker." I do not appreciate your negativity. If you are not happy with the requirements, WORDING of this swap, or me, you are welcome to move along and join / create other swaps. Thanks, have a nice day.

I love this swap idea and I hope you host more like this in the future! I've had a lot of fun shopping for my partner and can't wait to see what my partner has chosen for me. Thank you:)

@beeskneessam thank you so much for your lovely comment ! I am so happy to hear you've enjoyed this swap. :) I will most certainly host more swaps like this in the future , thank you for the encouragement.
