I ran this swap a couple months ago, and it was so much fun! I've heard from several swappers who would like a USA-version this time, so here goes!

Open to newbies, if you have a well thought out and complete profile. A good rule of thumb, when I open your profile page, I should have to scroll down to read it.

There have been pocket letter alphabet swaps, where each letter has its own page. For this swap, we are going to get through the alphabet a little quicker.

Instead of one letter per page, we are going to shrink it, to one letter per pocket!

This swap will be run THREE times, and I hope you will join us all the way through! We start with A -I.

DETAILS: Make sure that the letter shows up easily in the front of the pocket! * You will have ONE-partner
 * For the first round, you will take ONE 9-pocket sleeve, and starting at the top left, reading across, left to right...Fill the first pocket with anything that a paper crafter might enjoy, that starts with the letter "A". Fill the next pocket the same way, this time using the letter "B" and so on. 

IMPORTANT: When we get to the letter of your first name or swapping name, please write a nice little note about yourself in that space!

There are nine pockets, each representing a letter. So for this round, you will come up with ideas that represent each of the first nine letters, like stickers, origami papers, decorated paper, envies, etc.

Here's some examples: (these are just ideas, please feel free to come up with your own ideas) - and mostly, these refer to pictures or drawings of these things. I don't want anyone trying to stuff a giraffe into one of these little pockets!

A - architecture, Angels, ants at a picnic, aardvarks or antelopes, automobiles, anchors, etc.

B - birds, bees, buttons, beads, border designs, B/W pics, balloons, baskets, bridges, bird feeders, blue anything, etc.

C- carrots, construction zones, cats, chocolate, candles, clip art, cards, clips, colored staples, clocks, cheetahs, cheeky phrases, etc.

D- Dandelions, door knockers, drawings, deserts, decorating, diamonds😀, dimes, desserts, etc.

E- envie patterns, embroidery, eagles, envelopes, EXIT signs, elephants, eggs, etc.

F- fine-tipped pens, FB's, fish, flowers, flutes, free-style, fine laces, and edgings, fabrics, etc.

G- guitar, giraffes, gingerbread cookies, gables on roofs, green anything, etc.

H- hand-made, hearts, hockey, hamburgers, hot dogs, etc.

I- inchies, ice sculptures, ink pads, iguanas, etc.

Sorry for the question, but if your swap name or name initial is not A thru I then you do not include a note or letter?
