TEN partners to celebrate the month of DECEMBER! International and US version -- this is the INTERNATIONAL version

Mail can be in whatever form sender chooses -- letter, packet, poster, whatever you choose -- but please do not just send a postcard with the name of the swap - that does NOT cut it

Send happy mail that is FUN for your partners to receive

This is NOT a postcard swap!


Flat mail, so shouldn't be expensive to mail (like packages can be!). If you join, you'll typically have 10 partners (if at least 11 join the swap).

Happy mail outside -

-- pretty-up the envelope with postage stamps, colored pen address, stickers, doodles, Washi, etc

Happy mail inside -

-- so include things inside that are fun to receive - maybe a letter, along with things that your partner would like: such as Washi tape samples, stickers, blank postcards, stationery, notecards, comics from newspaper or printed off internet, photos you've taken, ephemera if your partner likes that (random things, etc). Send things that you'd be happy to get, that's a good thing to keep in mind. PLEASE - do not send random scraps of paper unless it is very clear from your partner's profile that such things would be welcome - err on the side of caution

You don't need to send the same thing to all your partners, and it's a fun way to look through the things you have and share!

Must be a WIYM member in good standing

You do NOT have to send identical swaps to each of your partners

Note: If less than 11 join, you may have less than 10 partners, but will have no more than 10 partners, no matter how many join

Please mail within the time provided - you will have nearly 3 weeks

This colorful stamp was issued to publicize ZIP Codes. The Zoning Improvement Plan, hence the name ZIP Code, was introduced by the U.S. Post Office Department in 1963. ... The design, which shows different forms of transportation used to carry the mail, was taken from a pop art poster created by artist Randall McDougall. (info from Collectors Weekly)
