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.

And as you RECEIVE your swaps, please note this accordingly, and rate your partner with this in mind.

ALSO I if you have an INTERNATIONAL partner, “note- card” might mean POSTCARD,Thanks.!

(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, even get them in a mailing envie, and weigh it if you want but do not attach postage yet

(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 add the postage and please remember toget it in the mail on time - then -

About a week after the mailing deadline, you will have the chance to leave a rating for your partners - remember to DO THAT!

SO .... 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....remember, though...ratings are a GIFT from your partner...and they must be earned!....so earn the “5”, and be happy with it!

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!

~~UPDATE - NOVEMBER 28- I’ve been asked,and so, everyone, the "rule" has changed, to say that if you want to send cards with the SAME design, that is fine

you are welcome - and welcome to swapbot! you are not signed up for any of my swaps tho, so I'm not sure why you thanked me...

have a good week!

@gramsbuttonbox for hosting a swap for newbies! I just joined and am building up my ratings so I can join some of the "cooler" swaps :)

Can I make my own note cards or do they need to be store bought?

gramsbuttonbox 12/ 2/2017 #

this is meant to be a fast swap =- - I do NOT want you sending some card that obviously took you hours to create - it is NOT a competition, or intended to make your parttner think that maybe they should have also created some kind of masterpiece...

this is why I recommend keeping it cheap, and store--bought.... thanks for asking

ellecamino - ohhh I see.....booo hooo ...my swaps aren't the COOL ones!! hahaha

have a great week....and I hope you can laugh at this, I surely wouldn't mean to hurt anyone's feelings -

Should I buy 4 cards or PCs and send them separately? Or can I put them all together in one envelope?

Karen72 12/ 5/2017 #

nduffy12345 12/ 5/2017 #

When do we get our partners ? I am still in this swap and am awaiting partners so as to make or miss Christmas rush!

gramsbuttonbox 12/ 5/2017 #

sorry about that, i had to address some things with a couple swappers - thanks so much for your patience, partners coming NOW!

gramsbuttonbox 12/ 5/2017 #

since i had to extend the signup deadline date, I extended the mailing deadline two days also.

I hope it doesnt cause any problems for anyone. thank you all, for your patience and understanding...

be well, everyone!
