Number of swap partners:1

I just hosted one of these swaps, and found it to be pretty popular. I thought I would try doing it as a series once a month!!

Everyone has seen Alice in Wonderland, so everyone knows that we have only 1 birthday and 364 UNbirthdays every year!!

What you need to do is in the discussion section list 10 items you would like to receive. You will need to send 3 items to your partner totaling $10 before postage.

Newbies are no longer welcome in my swaps unless you pm me and give me a valid reason to allow you in, AND you have at least two references of people that have a 4.9 rating or higher that are willing to angel your swap should you not send. I have recently been burned by a few newbies, and I will not be allowing all newbies in anymore. For those of you that aren't newbies, you MUST have a rating of 4.5 or higher, and no no-sends. You also need to have signed in within 3 days of the partners being assigned. Any questionable ratings will be removed. I am only trying to protect the participants of my swaps as well as myself. I can't afford to angel 2-3 swaps for each swap I host.

Newbies by my standards have been in fewer than 10 swaps. You must have been in at least 10 swaps and have been rated at least 10 times. E-swaps and postcards do not count!

For an added ounce of fun, wrap up your gifts like bday gifts. For a heart, add a little something extra.

If you haven't listed your "want list" by the day I assign partners, you will be removed from the swap! Don't just say "see my profile" that takes away from part of the fun!!

THIS IS USA AND CANADA ONLY. I do have an international one created if you do a search for "unbirthday" you will find it.
