I have hosted some round robin journal swaps, that are only open to "experienced" swappers (those WITH a good rating) - and I have been contacted by many 'newbies' asking if they can join.

I've told them to find a "quick turnaround" swap, and get some excellent ratings, and then they would be most welcome!

Well, there just aren't that many "quickies" that are open to the newbies - and well, I remember when I was one myself.


this is for YOU, if you are brand new, or have not yet found a quick swap to get some good ratings. (maybe even a heart or two?)

This is an INTERNATIONAL swap, open to EVERYONE - even experienced swappers - (adding a couple '5' ratings would be good for anyone!)

Swap Details - *you will have TWO partners (that means you will get TWO ratings!)

*send FOUR blank notecards with envelopes to each of your partners.

(That's eight notecards, total, which is usually one packet of notecards from the store)

This is a FAST swap (one week from signup to mailing)- so get your notecards right away, and get them in a mailing envie, even weigh it and attach the postage, all ready to mail.

(Remember, this is an int'l swap, so postage will be different if you have an int'l partner)

Swap partners will be assigned when the signup deadline comes, so all you will have to so, is put the address on the mailer, and get it in the mail.

in some previous swaps.\, i have been asked what "blank" means:
there can be NO greetings, wishes, etc. on the card! bettter to take a piece of nice one-sided scrapbook paper, and fold it, then cut it to ft in the envelope.
As soon as you receive your items, please remember to RATE your partner - there will be some newbies in this swap, who are eagerly waiting for some numbers by their names!

HOW DO I EARN A HEART? good question - a heart means that you have done something "above and beyond" the requirement - and in this case, that could mean sending some stickers, or maybe sending FIVE or even SIX note cards, or writing a nice little note about yourself....

IMPORTANT - include your own name in the swap, as well as your "swap id" - many of us use nicknames, and it's always nice to know who sent the packages.

HAVE FUN WITH THIS! and Good Luck!

(hope to maybe see some of you in my round robin swaps!

Do all notecards have to be different or can you send two of each the same?

gramsbuttonbox 10/17/2017 #

they can all be different, or all the same - sender's choice. have fun with it! just remember, "NO words, greetings, etc, on the cards"

most of my swaps are open to newbies, with only ONE "rule" - you must have a detailed and complete profile...I have always said - when I open your profile page, I should have to scroll down to read it - - your swap partners want to get to know you! I have found a couple profiles that "almost" fit the scroll-down rule, and I will allow it for the newbies this time, but please - - there are some excellent tabs in swapbot, or make up your own - PLEASE - tell us more - about your hobbies, favorite anythings, pets, kids, etc, etc, and etc!

(steps off my soapbox for now...)

I still haven't received my ratings for this swap. It's already been half a year. My partners haven't even messaged me informing me if they have received the notecards or not.
