This is my first shot at hosting a swap ~ please bear with me and please sign up!!

This swap is simple ~ put together a nice package of goodies that are pink, brown, or a combination of pink and brown. You will only have one partner, so you can put some thought into it. Try to stick within the color scheme as close as possible ~ it's a challenge!! That's what makes it fun. Let's make it roughly $15 to spend (before postage), and get creative! Read your partners profile, and send things that you yourself would enjoy receiving. Remember, if you don't have a very full profile, you should not expect a package tailored to your personality! Some ideas: candy (chocolate is brown!!), papers, brads, yarns, etc., for your partner's crafting, small candles or purses, lip gloss, some samples of your own craft, on and on, the possibilities are absolutely endless!!

Okay, my one rule: please do not make posts regarding wish lists. For me, the joy of swapping is about getting creative and putting my own thought, time, and effort into what I send out. It is not about taking my partner's checklist to the store with me, okay?? Trust your partner!! One exception to this rule: allergies!

Have fun - that's the most important thing!

Now....anyone with a 4.5 or higher is welcome - let's aim to get hearts on this one! Newbies, you're welcome too, I WILL check profiles though! Anyone who's not interested in sending ~ please don't sign up!

Remember people -- rating!! Give your partner enough time to actually get the package to you, benefit of the doubt and all that, and maybe even drop them a note before you automatically assume they flaked! If (and you should!) you get a package in a timely manner that thrills you, go back and rate your partner! The good ratings always help and tell us all who's doing a good job!

If I've left anything out or not been clear ~ please let me know!! Remember, first time!

Thanks everyone ~ HAPPY SWAPPING!!


sheriboberi 03/14/2007 #

yay!!! pink and brown are my upcoming wedding colors.

Aerochik 03/14/2007 #

It seems to be a popular color scheme right now, it's growing on me!!

Windchimes 03/15/2007 #

It is a lovely color scheme! I would love to see how it is being done for the wedding - flickr album upcoming maybe? I think people may like the combination because both colors are calming and soothing in many ways. I am just glad our host thought to do this one. I am really looking forward to it!

gem 03/15/2007 #

Very cool color scheme, and liking the "no lists" rule - I usually try to just scan my partners profile & any website links to get ideas anyway, it's more fun! (but be sure ya'll have profiles filled out!)

All I ask is no chocolate, please (it melts here in FL - even in March, trust me)

Happy swappin'! Oh and congrats sheriboberi on the upcoming wedding :)

~ gem ~

craftywitchygirl 03/15/2007 #

I love this color Scheme! It remiands me of Chocolat filled with Strawberry filling!

Katie 03/15/2007 #

I'm so glad that everyone is so into the colors ~ I love them too!

And sheriboberi, congrats on the wedding, and of course the fabulous color choice! I would be interested in seeing how that turns out as well!

debbi 03/16/2007 #

Went shopping and already found so really fine pink and brown items...this is fun!

user3051 03/17/2007 #

yeah i have been shopping already...some really fun stuff is sitting here waiting for my buddy! i can't wait to know who to send to so i can do some personalizing

LMeowkin 03/17/2007 #

Pink and brown is one of my favorite color combinations! I love the idea of this swap!

The only thing I ask is please, no food or beverage items for me. My dietary restrictions are severe, and to write about what I can and can't have would just be terribly confusing.

Jewel 03/20/2007 #

Just wonderful idea, I cant´t wait to get shopping! Im newbie and I am so exited about join this swap! : )And sheriboberi: I wish You all the best for Your wedding day!

alex 03/21/2007 #

Now Katie...love pink and brown cant this be international??? and maybe set the date a little closer? i would love to join i love to do colour swops!

Katie 03/21/2007 #

I'm sorry about the non-international, but cost of shipping is a big factor for me, and I would rather put my money towards what goes in the package! Regarding the date, I was asked to push it back because disability checks come out the beginning of each month, and I want those swappers who are affected by this to be able to participate and enjoy as well!

Thanks for the great comments!

user1011 03/23/2007 #

Oh that will be a gorgeous wedding! Hurrah!

nurul 03/28/2007 #

too bad it isn't international..wud love to join!pink and brown reminds me of cuppycakes..choc flavoured one in a pink cup LOL

kim 03/29/2007 #

ohh i love pink and brown!

my only request is please do not send me chocolate or soaps with your end of the swap.

congrats on your wedding..how exciting!!!

azureskyz 03/29/2007 #

Pink and brown are so beautiful together. I love the color choice and I am looking forward to collecting fun goodies for my partner. Since I am new I suppose I will get their name shortly after the deadline; can't wait

Windchimes 03/29/2007 #

Katie - Your swap is in the top 10!!! Congratulations!!!!

redwing480 03/30/2007 #

This is going to be fun, I've always adored pink and lately I've seen so many combinations of it with brown that just look so cool. I just have to say NO chocolate, gum, candles, or soap to me, I'm in Arizona and they will melt.

LuldaCasadaga55 03/30/2007 #

How timely...today a co-worker brought in goodies on 2 beautiful platters that were PINK & BROWN...I admired the platters more than the goodies. So, I must join this swap today! sheriboberi congrats on upcoming wedding...My 1st marriage was in May...great time of year.

okvicky 03/30/2007 #

This is my first swap. I can't resist anything Pink and Brown-maybe because it reminds me of neopolitan ice cream or those old fashioned coconut candies.

user7324 03/30/2007 #

Pink + Brown is my favorite color combo lately, so it is fitting that this is my first swap here at Swapbot (though not my first swap)! Someone at Glitter (Supernaturale.com) linked to here, although i've seen swapbot references in Flickr pics, especially the color swaps. I'm looking forward to it!

Katie 03/31/2007 #

Thanks for all the excitement ~ Windchime, I'm very excited to be in the top ten!! Thanks!

eclecticamiami 03/31/2007 #

can't wait to see how this turns out....good luck everyone!

sixaguilars 03/31/2007 #

I'm really sensitive to smells and get migraines really bad from them so that's my only restrictions. Thanks. Love this swap idea!!!

user5486 04/ 1/2007 #

I don't have any allergies but my five year old son is allergic to strawberries and artifical strawberry flavoring. I share my yummie goodies with my kiddos. So please no strawberry....

user7286 04/ 2/2007 #

No allergies.. LOVE pink and brown!!

I've already started collecting stuff! :)

PiNkPaPeRcRaFtEr 04/ 2/2007 #

I am so excited! This is my first swap. Pink and Brown are my favorite colors right now. I have been making a lot of mini scrapbooks and charms, etc from those colors....

user7444 04/ 5/2007 #

Oh Fun!! This is my 1st swap TOO!!! Shopping and creating is going to be so much fun :)Can't wait to "meet" my partner!

gem 04/ 6/2007 #

I'm getting soooo excited and really looking forward to this swap, can't wait to get my partner and fill out my P&B package! And we're currently #2, heck yes! Well - happy swappin' ya'll :)

~ gem ~

Katie 04/ 7/2007 #

I'm really HOPING for number one ~ that would be so exciting for my first swap!! One those 24 hour people get out of here!! LOL!

rilke891 04/ 8/2007 #

brown and pink so modern and savvvy. I am in!

FunToScrap 04/ 9/2007 #

Well, except for adding some personalized touches just for my partner, my collection is ready to go. I had WAY more fun finding stuff for this swap than I thought I would.
It was a BLAST! And judging from the amount of participants for this, I guess a lot of people are having fun with this. Happy Swapping! Chy

user7286 04/10/2007 #

Just like FunToScrap, I've got mine all ready to go... I just have to add a few personalized touches... I loved this one!

gem 04/13/2007 #

Hi Hollie ~

The swap is for a package of Pink & Brown items/goodies, not just ATCs ... BUT! I think including a theme-matched ATC in your swappee's package would be really cool :)

Welcome to SwapBot!

~ gem ~

user3051 04/17/2007 #

so ready to get partnered up! my loverly stash is getting lonely waiting to be shipped! and i am itching to make the personalized stuff once I know a few details about my buddy!

Beelicious 04/17/2007 #

Can't Wait!! Yay!!!

whateverdeedeewants 04/17/2007 #

This is my first swap and I am so excited! I already have at least a dozen ideas of what I want to send my partner. Because this is my first time does anyone have any suggestions for me to help things run smoothly or the best delivery options?

user7779 04/20/2007 #

Although, I am a Girl Scout leader and have swapped many times with my GS Troop, I have never participated in a grown up swap and I am looking forward to getting started!

This sounds like fun!!

SassyBird 04/20/2007 #

Hey Rj, The package arrived either Tuesday or Wednesday?, and you did GREAT! I loved everything you chose but if I had to pick just one "favorite" item it would have to be that awesome Paris sheet!

I also haven't received anything yet. This was my first swap and I put a lot into what I sent. It's a bummer that I didn't get anything. Sent a pm but no response. From the looks of my partner's profile, she's having some problems.

planter 03/ 9/2009 #
