Description:

This is my first swap as co-ordinator, so I have taken information from my very first swap on here and put it into a new one.

This swap is intended so that all the newbies can get rated. I used one like this for my first exchange and it was a lot of fun.

I am making this an easy swap, so here goes.

If you're not a newbie and you want to join you are more than welcome to sign up.

Pick 3: Pick 3 of these items and send to your partner. You will have 2 partners. 2 notecards and envelopes, 4 pieces stationery and 2 envelopes, 2 regular sheets of stickers (not the small sheets no reward stickers), 1 gel pen, 1 bookmark (which can be hand made or store bought), 1 memo pad, 1 pack post it notes, 1 postcard.

So here it is, pick 3 off the list and send them on their way. EVERYONE INCLUDED!!!!

People with many no sends need not sign up.

PLEASE CAN EVERYONE MAKE SURE THEIR PROFILES ARE FILLED IN.

I think I'll give this a shot. It would be nice to trade lightweight stuff. Btw the memopad can be a cute notebook right? Those small kind.

I think I'm still unsure about which items to send; but it'll definitely among these: gel pen, memopad, postcard, notecard and envelopes, stickers, or the stationery and envelopes. (=

I'm on gimmeyourstuff.blogspot.com just look for elyn under singapore. and i'm also doing a private swap with farstarr currently. so you can trust me!

nylelyn23 02/17/2007 #

and does anyone know any other newbie swap? do let me know.

Heather71 02/17/2007 #

Yes you can send a cute notepad for the memo pad.

user5486 02/17/2007 #

I am not a newbie but I had so much fun in this swap last time that I had to sign up again.

I am hosting a few swaps where newbies are welcome, so if anyone else wants to get rated you are more than welcome to sign up. I am hosting the Flower Pen swap, large girlie matchbox swap, haiku postcard, and music to craft to mix cd swap.

Brandi 02/17/2007 #

Hi! My name is Brandi from Ohio and I just joined! I think this sounds like fun!

user6360 02/17/2007 #

What do you mean when you say "2 regular sheets of stickers (not the small sheets no reward stickers)" how small is small and what are reward stickers?

I can't wait to start this swap, there are loads of funky shops where I live that have kooky bits of stationary stuff!

millsgrad 02/18/2007 #

i just signed up! not sure yet what three things I plan to send though but possibly the gel pen, memopad, and or sheets of stickers or a postcard.

craftycrocheter 02/18/2007 #

Just signed up! Not a newbie, but this sounds like fun, couldn\'t resist.

evacorges 02/20/2007 #

I\'m in - I just got banned from a swap for not having filled out my profile yet :( Hope this experience will be better... I did go and fill my profile, didn\'t know people were touchy about that here...

Chinita 02/20/2007 #

I did this last time. It was fun! I\'m no longer a newbie, but I\'ll do it again.

user5957 02/21/2007 #

This sounds like fun. Who doesn\'t need extra note cards or pads and pens?

Heather71 02/21/2007 #

Hi Eternal Sunshine.

In some places you can get small sheets of stickers that only have about 6 stickers on, so you need the ones that are bigger than that.

Reward stickers are the ones that say things like Well done, which are aimed at giving out rewards to school children when they\'ve done well at something.

Heather71 02/25/2007 #

WOW my very first co-ordinated swap and it\'s in the top ten.

Thanks everyone so much :)

takeabreak 02/27/2007 #

I'm a newbie and it sounds like fun!

user6469 02/27/2007 #

Can the notecards be Thank You notecards? Or should they be more general?

Swan 02/27/2007 #

This is only my second swap, so I'm still a newbie. On my first swap, my item didn't arrive, so my partner gave me a bad rating sniff. Oh, well, I hope the replacement I'm sending will arrive soon and that will change, maybe even before this swap starts...

I like the theme of this swap, just the kinds of items that I like to swap.

user5814 02/28/2007 #

Today I received a package with fabric squares in it from someone called Toni. I have one problem with this, I have no idea who she is! I find this rather funny, but obviously I don't just want to ignore this person. I believe this is to do with swapbot but she is not an official partner. If anyone has heard of her, could you get her to contact me. Thanks everyone. Marie xxx

Pezdiva 02/28/2007 #

Me, I want to play :D

evacorges 02/28/2007 #

I am uncertain of what is meant by a notecard - how is it different from a postcard?

ronivm 02/28/2007 #

I'm in. I just signed up today, so this is perfect. Is there a dollar amount for this swap?

user6651 02/28/2007 #

I just signed up and am excited. I've been collecting all sorts of goodies and am ready to participate in this swap. :)

Heather71 03/ 1/2007 #

No dollar amount. I'm pretty sure you'd be able to get most of these items in the dollar store (although not being in the US, I wouldn't like to swear to it). I know I can get most of these items in a UK version of the dollar store called Poundland.

megsgarden 03/ 1/2007 #

Well, I'm not exactly a newbie, but this sounds like a fun swap, so I'm in!

user6664 03/ 1/2007 #

I'm in, just signed up so this will be my first swap. :)

MARY 03/ 1/2007 #

I am very excited about participating in my first swap. It sounds like it will be very interesting. Does anyone have any hints which might make me a better swapper? Thanks for the opportunity!

happyness 03/ 1/2007 #

Hi! I new here and i just sign up for this swap! So excited :)

nurul 03/ 2/2007 #

are 4pieces of stationery and envlopes = lettersets?? if so,im in!!coz im a big fan of kawaii lettersets :))

user6682 03/ 2/2007 #

I'm game... and thinking about what to put on my profile...

Heather71 03/ 2/2007 #

nurulnurul - I'm not sure what kadaii lettersets are. My thinking of it is pretty letter paper that you would hand write a letter to a friend on.

Hope this helps.

Ilovekawaii 03/ 3/2007 #

Hello,

I want to join in, but I have tons of small memo sheets of cute japanese characters. I have also heaps of stickers and a gel pen.. But the problem is, with the stationary there must be envelopes with it :(

Oh must the stationery be in a a4 envelope? Otherwise they all will be folded and that's no good I guess :)

Sharon

crochetferretlvr 03/ 3/2007 #

This sounds like sooo much fun!! Cant wait to get started!

Krystal

Swan 03/ 3/2007 #

Sharon,

I can only speak for myself, not for the others in the swap. I'd be glad to receive several more sheets of stationary without matching envelopes. If the stationery comes with a matching envelope, I wouldn't mind if it was neatly folded to match that envelope. But it came without envelope, the sheets would have to be flat, unfolded.

joseegert 03/ 3/2007 #

I was wondering, since we have two partners, we are suppose to send 3 things for each of them correct? Also, are we just sending it to Heather, who is in charge of this swap?!

Thanks,

Jenn

Garagebandfan 03/ 3/2007 #

I would like to make a request that my partners dont send me a gel pen! they always seem to get broken in the mail, and I dont use them often anyway! i would love everything else though! I am a huge sticker, stationary and post card swapper so I am very excited about this swap! I just love foreign stationary!

Heather71 03/ 4/2007 #

Sharon I would say that with the stationery you would need to send envelopes with them yes and you only need 2 envelopes, not necessarily matching. The sheets don't have to be A4 size.

niecedenise 03/ 4/2007 #

Stickers and staionary- I would like all of those things were you to be one of my partners. Envelopes I dont need since I found a 32quart tub of them in a garage sale for a dollar. So for me if anyone doesnt have envelopes dont worry about offending me

niecedenise 03/ 4/2007 #

To all of you newbies, please be aware that there are so many different ways to mail something.To help with postage, watch how much something weighs, how thick the envelope will be, and how large it will be. The lesser of all these things willmake it cost less. Also when you go to the postoffice let them weigh it so you can postage it accordingly. I can send 6 teabags in a ziplock in a regular envelope (4x6) or so for 54 cents USA. But a swapper sent me a priority envelope with tea bags for a whopping $4.05 USA. Sure it got here in 2 days but for that diff I couldve waited a few days. The post office sure didnt give her good advice.

SewFun 03/ 4/2007 #

I've been hearing about a lot of other people doing swaps and getting some really neat things, so I thought I'd give it a try.

This will be my first, os let me know what I need to do!

Thanks

kitchensqueen 03/ 4/2007 #

I'm in! :-)

user6469 03/ 5/2007 #

Hi! I'm a newbie but I've signed up for a few swaps already and have been mailing stuff out for the others. I'm really excited about this one because I love notecards and stationary.

A request for my partners, I would really appreciate it if you didn't send stickers or gel pens. I don't want a pen breaking in the package and ruining all the other stuff. Also, I have numerous stickers from all my scrapbooking supplies and would really prefer not to get anymore.

Thanks :)

KarlaKC 03/ 5/2007 #

Several people in the Participants List who have multiple No Sends and poor ratings. I hope they get weeded out of this swap before it starts. Something not being received, and given a low rating for it is one thing, but someone who has multiple No Sends shouldn't be playing in these swaps until they clear the others up.

Just my opinion, but I'm so tired of seeing people not receiving because poorly rated swappers are allowed to play in yet another swap.

Heather71 03/ 6/2007 #

OK Partners have been assigned. I hope that everyone sends out, as they've promised to do and most of I hope has fun receiving their goodies.

niecedenise 03/ 6/2007 #

Debbrown and Courtney, yours will be in the mail in a few minutes. Enjoy!

joanandemma 03/ 6/2007 #

Beleonora and wisejudy, your packages have been sent today. Hope you like them!

ladydy5 03/ 6/2007 #

There are always people who are "no sends". I sent a lovely scarf to three people and I only got back from 2. I would rather the "no sends" email me if they had a problem at the time and couldn't send or forgot or just stayed away from swaps. Giving them a bad rating doesn't help that much.

I sent my packages to Debbrown and phunkymama this morning. I hope you like them!

ladydy5 03/ 6/2007 #

Tartlover and marchingstars - Colorado and United Kingdom. Your packages are in the mail. Enjoy

Ilovekawaii 03/ 6/2007 #

i'm so curious about who has me as his swap partner :)

ozrob 03/ 6/2007 #

One of my parnters has a totally blank profile, what do I do?

1CrazyQuilter 03/ 6/2007 #

FibreJunky and Sylvie I sent your packages off today

Tilly1218 03/ 6/2007 #

I would love to get anything from the list with the exception of the gel pen! I get more of it on me than on what I'm writing on! Happy Swapping! Pezdiva and kitchensqueen you packages will go out 3/7-Enjoy.

Courtney 03/ 6/2007 #

ozrob, I would just select the 3 from the list you would like to send and mail them to that partner. I would think your selections should be appreciated.

Heather71 03/ 7/2007 #

ozrob I have messaged you.

user6469 03/ 7/2007 #

Em & Mamaw10 your items were sent out this morning. I hope you enjoy them!

gooddog56 03/ 7/2007 #

Diamond & Ouryougnhearts, packages were shipped to you both in England this morning...hope you like...

kitchensqueen 03/ 7/2007 #

Subgirl and Aquariusmoon, I mailed packages today to both of you, via USPS First Class. I hope you get them by this weekend! :-)

tateva 03/ 7/2007 #

Sasha and KarenS- I sent your packages out today!@@@ I found out today that Sasha doesn't have a profile, but I already sent hers and she isn't on our list of participants- let me know if I got the right people to send to as I don't want anyone to miss out thank you!

Heather71 03/ 8/2007 #

Marlene and cranytiger, watch out for the postie, your packages went out from the UK today.

Heather71 03/ 8/2007 #

I have still to hear back from swap bot regarding Sasha and I have not heard from her myself, perhaps she will today.

For those who end up not receiving anything (but please give it a couple of weeks after last posting, as it is in an International Exchange, before giving bad feedback and contacting me to let me know), as it is ultimately my responsibility to ensure you all receive something in return, I will mail out replacement goodies to you.

This has taught me, although it may come good in the end, that once this exchange and the other I'm co-ordinating, are finished, I shall not be organising anymore exchange.

Sylvie 03/ 8/2007 #

Thanks for letting me know, 1CrazyQuilter! Can't wait!

I'll be sending out tomorrow to Searight and FibreJunky.

grtz! Sylvie

user6263 03/ 8/2007 #

I can't wait! I'm so excited! I'll be sending here in a few. I picked up some additional stuff yesterday. I'm TOTALLY swamped until Saturday, so that's when I'll probably get to the PO to mail them.

SO EXCITED! :)

Swan 03/ 8/2007 #

I sent the packages to sorcia and little kitty today. They are both going by air mail, one within the US, the other to Australia, so hopefully they won't take too long.

KarlaKC 03/ 9/2007 #

I'm sorry to see that the bad swappers (multiple no sends/received) were not banned from this swap before assignments were made. Someone, several someones, won't be receiving in this swap, I can tell already.

Before you send to your partner you might want to see what their ratings are. If they are habitual "No Send"ers, you might consider not feeding them yet another swap that they have no plans of reciprocating to their partner. I have held back a swap from a swap abuser and sent it to their partner instead who did not receive from the swap abuser.

This is such a great swap, short and sweet and simple. It's such a shame to see abusers in the list of participants.

ozrob 03/ 9/2007 #

Melon ann = profile deleted

another no sender

Heather71 03/ 9/2007 #

Just to reiterate that there will be nobody disappointed. If you don't receive anything from your partner within 3 weeks of the final date, please let me know and I will PERSONALLY make sure you receive a lovely goodies selection.

Heather71 03/ 9/2007 #

Melon Ann did not have a rating and her profile was up when I checked it a couple of days ago.

I really wish I hadn't bothered with exchanges now :(

niecedenise 03/ 9/2007 #

Heather, dont be so hard on yourself. Things just happen. I will be an angel if you like. Out of about 12 swaps ive been in I have only not received 2 items. and that is with 3 partners in each swap. Pretty good odds i think. Dont let a few bad senders ruin this fun for you.

user6560 03/ 9/2007 #

Hi Summer and Thistledew!!

Start checking those boxes ladies! your packages went out yesterday!!:) By the way really like your screen names!

MARY 03/ 9/2007 #

This has beeen so much fun -- I just hope I picked things that my partners will enjoy. I appreicate being able to "play"! My packeges are sealed and I am on the way to the post office.

DragonflyCrafts 03/10/2007 #

I'm putting my packages together now and they will go in the post on Monday to "Pants" & "Jennifer". Love this quick and easy swap.

ozrob 03/10/2007 #

I have sent one package (to ScullyB) just awaiting an email from the other to see if she is going to play.

HEATHER - have you heard from zennifer ?

Ilovekawaii 03/10/2007 #

i've got mines ready too :) Only awaiting some things :) I'm also curious who has me as his partner. Because I haven't heard anything from somebody yet.. And since this is one of my first swaps, I don't want to get bad experiences :(

Aerochik 03/10/2007 #

Garagebandfan Your package arrived today (on my birthday), it was such a nice surprise. Thanks for the "newbie" goodies, this was one of my fist swaps, so far everything I have received has been awesome. Thanks a bunch

nylelyn23 03/10/2007 #

woohoo. ive got 2 "diva"s as my partners! pezdiva and treva2diva, you've heard from me, haven't you? your packages will be sent by next thursday. my younger sister also helped me on this! she's just as excited as i am. (but i'm nervous cos it's my first official swap!)(=

Heather71 03/11/2007 #

Ozrob, no I haven't yet. I've contacted her again just now, so hopefully I will hear from her soon.

Heather71 03/11/2007 #

We also now have another one with a deleted profile. She didn't have a rating, so much have been given it on Saturday and because she was given a 3, she has now deleted her profile.

Serenityrae22 - if you have her as your send to partner and you haven't yet sent, please don't send to her. I will contact you off the board too.

Ilovekawaii 03/11/2007 #

I didn't got any mails yet from the people who needs to send to me.. isn't it better to just let everyone know who their partners are?

Jox 03/11/2007 #

'Panj' and 'Nahnahnah' your packages are on their way from the UK, sent yesterday (Saturday 10th) Hope you enjoy them. Jox

nylelyn23 03/12/2007 #

Hey there Sharon, I haven't gotten any sign from my parnters too. =( I just hope they do send it out. It kinda makes me feel insecure. (especially cos this is my very first swap)

nylelyn23 03/12/2007 #

treva2diva and pezdiva, your packages are on their way from Singapore. (=

Heather71 03/12/2007 #

Sharon I don't assign the partners, swap bot do that for us.

I can't say that I contacted my partners either. In all of the swaps I have been in on here, only one person has contacted me and only on one exchange had I been told it was on its way.

kitchensqueen 03/12/2007 #

Jacqui, thanks! I got your package today! How do we leave feedback for our partners? Also, Jacqui what is your screen name so I can leave you feedback?

Ilovekawaii 03/12/2007 #

it's okay :) I already got 1 swap from Mandy! Thank you mandy!

zanylady 03/12/2007 #

Oh you impatient ones! (I'm smiling) I love getting the goodies in the mail but do remember the deadline to mail isn't for another 3 weeks.

So far, I either get a "recieved yours" or "sent yours" on this swap page. Unless it is going to be late, I try to wait for the goodies in the mail so don't need to be contacted when sent. I do enjoy and am appreciative when I get notice that mine were recieved. I worry about my goodies until they get to their new home. I don't want anyone disappointed in not getting mine and will send emails to my partners if I don't hear from them.

Marlene

zanylady 03/12/2007 #

Me again.....I sent off Mandy's (and today I recieved yours from another swap...small world....but I'll go there and post)in Canada so hope it gets there soon.

Sharon....this is the Sharon of Stickers and Stationery.... in Belgium....I sent yours today too. It's going all the way across the continent and the ocean so hopefully will get there for you soon.

Enjoy Marlene

zanylady 03/12/2007 #

the third time's a charm....

I wanted Heather to know I received her newbie package today and I'm thrilled....love all the goodies and you bet I'll use them!

Thanks, Marlene (in sunny California where I think we had Spring this morning and now it's summer....my hubby is out in the yard sans tee shirt....glad he's doing the gardening and I get to play on the computer! Cheers, everyone!)

user6552 03/12/2007 #

Denise and Courtney, I got my packages this weekend and I love both of them! Thanks so much!

Diane Yates and Jennifer Schildt, yours will go in the mail tomorrow at lunch! This has been so much fun!

Deb

user6635 03/12/2007 #

yellowduckyx, I received your package today. Thank you! :)

Ilovekawaii 03/12/2007 #

Marlene, thank you for noticing me that you are my partner :) Now I feel very comfortable because I am in another swap.. And I think I am going to have bad experiences with that one.. the swap coördinator hasn't send his stuff out (sending date is passed 3 days now). I mailed all the swapper for asking who is my swapper.. The ones that have sended their things have responded, but they don't have me as their partner.. And the other ones, 2 are banned and 1 is supposed to be hacked so I guess I won't get a thing! And that was my first swap!

But don't worry, i'm going to report the non senders and the coördinator too.. it's not fair..

gramsbuttonbox 03/12/2007 #

I was in a swap that the coordinator did not send - that was really too bad - hope it doesn't burn you from the swap experience, Sharon, for the most part, the swaps have been good - there probably will always be a few bad apples...

Also, sent today to meg (Tracy, CA) and itsoksweety (Briston, RI) - hope you enjoy them, and have a great week, MaryB

crochetjunkie 03/12/2007 #

I would be willing to angel if you need one. Jennifer

ozrob 03/12/2007 #

I sent to zennifer. I'm too scared of getting a 1!!

JenL 03/12/2007 #

bunnycutie - I got my swap today. Thank you very much!! Ironic twist of fate - both my cousin and I have sent you a sudoku puzzle. We had just e-mailed about that a couple of days ago to each other, and I get this from you today - Monday (gee, do I sound like a newbie, or what?!). Thanks again.

Jen L.

nahnahnah 03/12/2007 #

Your swaps went out today, craftersbag and ~krazy~.

Patty

Heather71 03/13/2007 #

Feedback scores don't get posted until 7-10 days after the last date for sending.

I'm glad you liked your things Marlene.

SewFun 03/13/2007 #

LNick73 and nurulnurul you swaps went into the mail today! I hope you enjoy them!

Laura

oh, and Heather(coordinator) I too could be a swap angel if needed.

1CrazyQuilter 03/13/2007 #

Hi I got one of packages but no sure who it is from. if you mailed to please let me know thanks

joanandemma 03/13/2007 #

I'm new to swapping so my expectations aren't too high, although I am hopeful. Don't let the negatives get to you, Heather, your efforts as hostess are appreciated. I'm happy to be a swap fairy to a non-receiver ('tis better to give than to receive and all that...)

I think some people are quick to send as soon as they get their partners addresses (I was) and others wait until that last day deadline, so really we won't know how things turned out until mid-April. Let's all take a breath, be patient and see what happens.

musicalif3 03/13/2007 #

joanandemma and FunToScrap I sent your packages today! It takes about 6-12 working days to get to your place though, so please be patient! (:

Nathalie 03/14/2007 #

Niece Denise and Aloha your package have been sent last monday...enjoy!

takeabreak 03/14/2007 #

1crazyquilter & wanderer - Good morning from Take A Break - JoAnne. I mailed your packages out two Mondays back. You will find "Forget-Me-Not" flower seeds in your packages, along with a handmade postcard, etc. This was my second swap-bot, so I hope you will enjoy and can use every thing that was sent. Have a wonderful day!

takeabreak 03/14/2007 #

Heather ~ I am new to swapbot, but I am here to play. I've signed up for five different swaps and I am having a blast mailing out surprises to my partners! Anywayssss if someone doesn't receive a package, please let me know if I can help - I have stuff I can mail out. Keep a smile close to your heart :}

mejulia 03/14/2007 #

Rhoda, your great swap arrived today. Thank you so very much! If I understand correctly I can't leave feedback yet but do let me know if I am wrong. I certainly want to leave great feedback. Julia

mejulia 03/14/2007 #

Tamera (That Darn Cat) and Laura, your packages went out Monday so hope they arrive soon. Julia

1CrazyQuilter 03/14/2007 #

I got my package from wanderer very nice items!

very cute martini note pad and pin just love thanks so much.

SewFun 03/14/2007 #

Julia,

I got my package today! What an awesome envelope! I hated to even open it, wish I could reuse it. Just what I need another hobby too.

My husband would roll his eyes, open his wallet, and ask how much he could give me to not go there. :)

Thanks for the great package!

Laura

user6730 03/15/2007 #

lissi.love and swan I posted your packages last Friday. hope they won't take too long to get to you from Australia

Patti

Heather71 03/15/2007 #

Thank you to everyone who has offered to be a swap angel, your kindness is really appreciated thank you very much.

I received a wonderful parcel from Carmen (rosebrier?) this morning. Those note cards are too good to use. Thank you so much.

nylelyn23 03/15/2007 #

Hi! I just received a package today from UK. Your name is Marie Cullinan. Can you please contact me so that I can say a personal thank you and leave you a feedback in future?

Thanks!

Btw heather, this is my first swap. Since we give out two packages, do we receive two or one package in return. am clueless about this. sorry. and thanks!

Heather71 03/15/2007 #

We will receive 2 packages. 2 for 2.

Heather71 03/15/2007 #

OK I have never heard anything back from swap bot, but I have been keeping a check on certain members and can tell you now that 3 members have been removed from swap bot altogether (by the management I would imagine).

These members are:

SerenityRae22 Sasha Melon Ann

I have already contacted the ladies who were meant to receive from SerenityRae and advised them that I will get goodies out to them as soon as I can. Things are a little financially awkward here this week and I apologise for that.

I may just be asking for help from the ladies who have offered to be swap angels, for which I am extremely grateful.

My apologies once again for the disappointment this has caused.

Heather

Aerochik 03/15/2007 #

MissMurder I received your newbie package today. The items are right on, thank you so much...

mejulia 03/15/2007 #

Heather, just send me the names of people who didn't receive swaps and I will be happy to send to them. After all, you did all the work (thank you) of putting the swap together, I can do this small part. Julia

Samantha S and Eileen Gruber - your packages will be in tomorrow's mail. Keep a lookout for them.

BleakOptimism 03/15/2007 #

Well two packages should be getting on a plane leaving Tasmania tonight going out to sunbeamncz3 and Jenny Young. I am so nervous that my packages are going to be poopy or I mis-understood something. I hope I am not the only one that gets paranoid their packages won't be up to scratch. Jen L, got your package yesterday :) It's great, loved the notecards best. I kind of like the suprise of not knowing who where or when my package is coming.

joseegert 03/15/2007 #

Mary Elizabeth thank you sooo much. I received your package today and I love everything!!!!

i also got a fantastic package from mary. i would thank her personally as i LOVE the tatted notecards (and all the kitty goodness) but i wasn't sure her username. thanks so much though!

happyness 03/16/2007 #

Hi! Memmu(Finland)and Marylen(USA), your packages are on it's way to you from Singapore. Hope it reaches you safely & quickly. And above all, you enjoy what i chose for you :)

takeabreak 03/16/2007 #

Heather if you need help in sending out a packet, please let me know. No worries about mailing to me if I was a partner to one of the deleted.

Wanderer - please let me know if you did not receive a package from me so I can mail out another. Still a newbie with all of this so I want to make sure my partners are receiving their surprises.

Have a wonderful day every one! It's raining like crazy today....:}

What is the best way to figure out how much postage is (especially internationally) in the US without going to the post office? I tried the USPS website, but they are not particularly specific.

I got one of my swaps -- from Mandy -- and loved the items she sent!

Ellawitch, I am so glad you got the package from me -- and that you liked the tatted notes.

This has been a great experience!! Many thanks, Heather.

KarlaKC 03/20/2007 #

Heather, we all are enjoying this swap and appreciate you starting it. Don't be hard on yourself for the slackers and users (those who sign up with no intention of sending but every intention of receiving).

You mentioned 3 banned users already and how you were going to send to their partners. An option you might consider first is have those who were assigned to send to the 3 banned users just divert their packages to the banned users' partners. That would work if they haven't sent to the banned user already. That is 3 packages already prepared and 3 less anyone else would have to Angel. This is what I did in one of my swaps where I had a bad partner (she didn't send to her partner). I had a feeling she would do it and didn't send to her and waited to see if her partner would receive from her. Didn't happen. So now my goodies that were intended for my partner now go to my partner's partner. In this way, noone could say I received but didn't send. Everyone who receives a package needs to send one out, too, even if it's an Angel.

I will be happy to be placed on your Angel list, too. No need for you to have to bear the burden of sending to everyone who doesn't receive. Especially when others are offering to send an Angel package or two. Use us!

Please don't let this swap's negative side deter you from starting new swaps. You could have a more smooth running swap with stricter rules. Of course, this being a "Newbie" swap, you really can't have tighter rules to weed out the users, but perhaps instead of saying this would be your last swap you start, perhaps it's just your last "newbie" swap you start and you start others that interest you, but with stricter rules (certain member ratings, No "no sends" unless good excuse - such as not sending to a known slacker, etc.) This swap was a great concept and easy to do and I am enjoying it. Thank you for starting it!

niecedenise 03/20/2007 #

My angel package is in the mail!

ladydy5 03/20/2007 #

Jen from Plymouth Meeting, Pa. I was so impressed with your package that I hate to even use them. If I do use them they better be to people who are special. I will carry the one you made for notes in my purse. As a newbie you did just wonderful. Been to Plymouth Meeting also. Diane in Tennessee

Gosh! I haven't popped mine out to my partners (though I have them all ready!) but hope to do that before the weekend. I just want to say I got mine from Candy. Thanks soo much - I especially love the "M" post-its - I use tons of post-its for my work and to have them in my initial is ultra sweet! :-)

Mamaw10 03/25/2007 #

Isn't it sad that we take time to pick just the right item to send to our partner, and they cannot even take a moment to drop a quick "thanks". Even if they are disappointed with the item they received, they could let us know it arrived !!

Sylvie 03/26/2007 #

Wanderer, your package arrived! Many many thanks and I'm very sorry about the skyhigh shipping costs. I'm already using the beautiful notebook. grtz!!

FAO KRAZY

I have just sent you a message and then I went and checked the list of participants, but I can't find "friendlyswapper7879" on the list.

Are you sure it's this one she joined?

aaldaco 03/26/2007 #

yes sorry her name is kj in the group. sorry about that. annie

Heather71 03/26/2007 #

There are still a few people with no sends, a few of them are newbies and one of whom has failed to get in contact with me even though I have sent her over a dozen messages.

Please everyone, if there's a problem, let me know.

The last date for sending on time is the 30th which is Friday.

I kept wanting to post that I received one of my packages, from Swantje, I think this is Swan?

I was also wondering if Jeremy and Sorcia received the swaps from me? I sent them out around the 12th...

takeabreak 03/26/2007 #

Krystal,crochetferretlur Thanks so much for the goodies package I received today! It came at a great time. My grand-daughter will be staying with me this weekend and her mom's birthday is on April 1. I plan on having craft time with her so she can make a special b'day card. She will love love the stickers you sent out to me. I figure she can use some of those for her creation. Thanks, again, for the package - everything will be enjoyed and used and I am so glad you had fun picking everything out...I can tell. Take A Break - JoAnne/VA :}

Good Evening Baglady - Just wanted to let you know I rec'd the wonderful package (weeks ago)- thanks so much! Fabulous gel pen - this one WILL NOT end up in the grandkid's crayon box! How about those crazy dogs in cars - love it!

Diana - I received your package in the mail today! It was bursting with goodness! Thanks for the pens and sharpies and all the stuff! (My mum guesses that the postage probably cost you more than the package... Thanks for that too!) - Hei/Mandy [Couldn't find your username, would have loved to send you a personal message!] Happy swapping to all!

Heather71 03/27/2007 #

There are still a few people with no sends, a few of them are newbies and one of whom has failed to get in contact with me even though I have sent her over a dozen messages.

I have also found out today that there is another flaky swapper, who was posing as a newbie. EVERYONE NOTE THAT ALOHA IS ON THE FLAKERS LIST.

Please everyone, if there's a problem, let me know.

The last date for sending on time is the 30th which is Friday.

KarlaKC 03/27/2007 #

Heather, there is no problem with my packages to be sent out per se. I will get mine out by Friday, March 30th. HOWEVER, I am going to say that, while I am going to mail mine to Krystal (crochetferretlvr) by Mar. 30th (she's got some ratings behind her already and her partners have already received in this swap), I am NOT sending to my other partner Dale until I know that her partners have received from her. She has no ratings behind her yet (yes, I know a "newbie" as the swap called for) and her profile is short and sweet (1 answer under each of the 5 or 6 categories). She may be a perfectly wonderful beginning swapper, but I am choosing to wait to send her package until I know she's sent. If she does not send, then I will send my package that I prepared for her, to one of her partners instead.

I'm telling you this upfront, because I'm not going to mark my name as "Sent" until BOTH are sent, and that may not be by the 30th. It may turn out that only crochetferretlvr's will be mailed by the 30th. So until I mail Dale's to her or to her partner, I won't have marked my name as "Sent". So don't be alarmed when you see a "Not Sent" by my name after the 30th. :)

And you may put my name on the list of names for those of us swappers willing to send to someone who didn't receive anything a package. I'll be happy to send to someone who hasn't received by about 2 weeks after the swap (or more) or to any of the partners of the bad swappers that have already been deleted from Swap-bot or who have very poor ratings.

megsgarden 03/28/2007 #

Krazy & Heather- RE: Kj- I got her (& Miss Murder) & sent out on the 19th, so they should have arrived by now :)

kitchensqueen 03/28/2007 #

Neither of my partners have acknowledged reciept of the packages I sent (unless I missed it above)-- please let me know if you have received them so I can send replacements if neccessary. I don't want anyone to go without!

SewFun 03/28/2007 #

Heather - if you need me to send out another package to someone that's going to be shorted let me know. I sent out the other you requested on the 21st so that should have reached it's destination in LA by last Friday.

Laura

BleakOptimism 03/28/2007 #

Recieved ronivm's package yesterday :) thank you, love it. So now I have both packages, I hope mine have arrived to their destinations. I have sent out 6 packages so far in a month and not heard a word from any of my partners as to wether they recieved or not panick panick.

takeabreak 03/29/2007 #

Good morning Heather - I received from one of my partners but not the other. If my second partner was one of the flakes, no worries about having an angel send to me. Just to give you heads up, I had aloha in another swap (ATC Goodies), and I had mailed her a premium stuffed package. Vintage bingo card, vintage pages from various books, vintage metal slides, vintage ribbon, vintage game pieces,(approx 30 or more various items) I can go on and on. If I had known about her I would not have mailed out to her. So THANKS for letting me know. I am still a newbie and I don't think I will swap anymore when it comes to sending partners packages of goodies.....(yep, it seems as if I am screwed on the first three swaps I ever signed up for). I am hoping for the best for the other two goodies swaps that are currently in progress, and I know the one last swap I am doing (ATC Chain) that one is going full speed ahead and has been a blast. I feel for the coordinators of these swaps, and I was hoping to be a coordinator in the future (I have a great swap idea), but the few bad apples make people like me want to stay away. Especially when the good people are taking out the time, effort, creativity, and expense to make a swap something special. I like the idea of the one person above who doesn't mail out until she sees some evidence that her partners are actually participating and mailing their swaps. Heather, you have done a great job and you care about the participants - so thanks again for being the coordinator. Unfortunately, I just had some bad experiences right from the get go....

Kelly 03/29/2007 #

I mailed my swaps to...Magen Saunders aka Garagebandfan in ND & Mikki McCoy aka DixieWitch in AL today.

I also got a swap from...M. Graham in Tracey, CA today. Thanks...some cute stuff. :) HUgs, Kelly :-)

nylelyn23 03/30/2007 #

Marie Cullinan, please contact me! I still don't know your username up til now. =(

Heather71 03/30/2007 #

OK I have spent the better half of my afternoon sending messages to those who still have Not Sent next to their names. Reminders have gone out twice to some in recent days, so there should really be no excuse.

Some of us may have more time on our hands than others, but that is still no excuse to sign up and then completely forget about sending out your swaps.

I am a single mother to a 4 year old, all week long I have been in school making things with them out of every day items that can be recycled. Today I have been to the hospital for abdominal pains I have been getting and yet I have still managed to get out 3 other swaps I have been involved in, as well as all the other things a single mother has to do. Perhaps I am just good at multi tasking.

Please everyone who hasn't sent their parcels off to their swap partners yet, let me know. Especially if you are a NEWBIE - you would absolutely hate for your first 2 ratings to be a 1, it certainly wouldn't help you to get into other swaps.

user6214 03/30/2007 #

Hi Heather - thanks for the note. I have almost forgotten to click on the sent button. My swap partners - Craftbrown1 and Dietdew, I sent my package off to you this afternoon from Singapore and should reach you in 8-12 days (so the postal people say).

Jox 03/30/2007 #

I have received one lovely swap from Beleonora but I am still waiting for the other. I sent my two and I have heard that one has been recieved. I am going away for 2 weeks so I'll apologies now if I don't get back to you about my swaps. Jox

FibreJunky 03/30/2007 #

Hi all. I finally made it to the post office today. My boss let me off work early and I squeaked in right under the wire, so Shining Star and Searight, your packages are on the way. I gave up, finally, on locating my sticker stash, so I had to choose something else. I hope you both enjoy what I came up with. If anyone needs an angel, please let me know. I'd be more than happy to send something out. FJ

nylelyn23 03/30/2007 #

hey jox, i'm in the same situation as you. but i guess earlier on my swap partner suzie64 gave me a message saying that she's my partner. so although she still hasn't sent, i'm sure she will. :) i hope you'll get your second swap package soon!

Mamaw10 03/30/2007 #

Em & Karen - your packages went out quite some time ago - please let me know that they have arrived.

user6742 03/31/2007 #

take a break and crochetferretlvr, I sent your packages today, a day late, so there's a little something extra. Sorry, blame it on newbie-ism. Since you're both in the US too they should be there early next week.

Heather, thanks for the reminder. I forgot to look for my partners. Duh!

I didnt get from one of mine either, and i dont expect to. Lots of flakers in the swap. But now they are out for a while, at least till they redo their profiles with new names ,etc.

Heather, I have received one of my parcels but not the other. Do you know who has sent to me? Can you check if they have sent my parcel? Also, I have not received any notice that the two people I have sent parcel to have received them. Do I contact them or can you check? I know it's a long way down under and the deadline was only 4 days ago but getting in now. Thanks for your help

crochetferretlvr, take a break is correct, it was me.

millsgrad 04/ 3/2007 #

i haven't received a thing from anyone! :(

user6469 04/ 4/2007 #

I've only received one package so far. I know the last day to mail off was March 30. I guess I should give it a little more time but I'm kinda worried with all the hype of bad swappers not sending packages.

I'm still a little new to this but I have already completed two other swaps. This one makes me want to reconsider doing anymore. No offense to Heather, you did all you were required to do. It was a fun swap and I enjoyed shopping for the two people I received and knowing that they really liked what I bought. It's unfortunate that some people out there want to scam something so simple and fun as these swaps. I'll give myself some time before I decide if I'll swap again.

Also, I wanted to know if there is a way to find out the partner(s) that mail to you before swaps end or before you have to leave feedback.

Heather71 04/ 4/2007 #

Keep holding out. I know a few people hadn't sent until Saturday after my reminder to them, or they were posting on Monday.

Heather71 04/ 4/2007 #

OK I have once again spent the last couple of hours emailing everyone who has a no send by their name and hopefully I will get some response from those who have ignored my previous messages.

Some of you were told not to send due to certain people being removed from swap bot, you have now been contacted because one of these people has been allowed back to swap bot.

KarlaKC 04/ 5/2007 #

Crochetferretlvr, I am so glad you enjoyed everything. Of course you liked the bookmark - I DID read your profile and saw that you loved butterflies just like I do! :) Have fun swappin'!

Dale, I apologize for sending yours out late. I meant no offense, but I just had to be sure you were one of the great newbie swappers and not one of the swappers using others. It sounds like you sent great packages and I hope you receive great ones, too. I will have a package in the mail to you tomorrow (post office is closed for the rest of today) so you should see it next week. :)

ALSO - RECEIVED ANONYMOUS PACKAGE! Yesterday's mail brought an unmarked package. I don't know if it was for this swap or another (I am in quite a few). So I'll make a mention of it here and if you sent me this package, please let me know. In this package was a memo pad with the word "NOTES" at the top and a magnet on the back, a package of Stickeroni stickers with 2 sheets of flower stickers, predominately pink - my fave color, and 2 envelopes and matching papers in purple and lime green. There was no note or address or swap name on the package or within the package. The only thing I have to go on is that the postmark indicates it was mailed on Wednesday, March 28th from Lake Forest, Illinois. I considered that someone might have sent an "Angel" because perhaps one of the deleted swappers had me as a partner. I just want to be sure I (1) have the right swap; and (2) rate the right person (as I don't know if I can determine the person by a location only - Illinois - when the rating feature is up tomorrow).

Thank you if it was from this swap that the goodies were sent!

this is the 3rd swap where even with more than one swap partner, I didn't receive anything. And yeah, it's getting frustrating - and I mailed mine out the 12th of March!

sigh - and I really looked forward to this swap - MaryB

oh well - it was a tough decision, but I'm just not going to join any swaps (or will drop out of any swaps) anymore that have swappers with ratings less than 2 - I seem to somehow draw the unlucky card too many times - I'm sorry, but I like the concept of swap-bot too much to just keep this up.

I went in to rate and found out one of my partners who was supposed to send me was may davis (purplexdolphin)whose account is deleted. She never sent me anything. The other swapper was great though, and I am content to leave things as is.

RACHEL COHEN (AKA CHINITA) AND GINNY COOPER (AKA GYPSY)

Have either of you received my package yet? Let me know thanks! I am still hoping you get both packages I sent out, if not both, at least the one that I re-sent for you. Let me know if you receive! Thank you!

It appears the other partner I was to receive from is Aloha. Bummer.

niecedenise 04/ 6/2007 #

Courtney, i had Aloha also. Double bummer.

aloha = Jenna Perry - she's been scamming swap-bot from the beginning - if you can, be sure to leave a rating - she just keeps coming back under a "new" name - -

to ALL swap-bot swappers!

aloha = Jenna Perry = Oak Street = Eugene, Oregon

even if she is your "partner", her address will not show - she has it listed as "private email only for info" -

beware!!

ANY of those words/names in her email, web addy or swap name, do NOT send to her -

just a 'head's up' - MaryB

Oops KarlaKC, I rated you as not getting anything and then re-rated you as "don't want to rate yet" after reading your message. Hope that doesn't screw things up.

Haven't received from the other one yet either, so maybe I'll just be patient.

KarlaKC 04/ 7/2007 #

Thank you, Dale, and it's no problem!

Hope you receive from your second partner, too! :)

KarlaKC 04/ 9/2007 #

Your package was mailed this afternoon, Dale! ENJOY! :)
