Welcome to my swap: A word of caution when deciding to join my swaps newbie or veteran

Three words: Impress your partner

I joined swap way back in 2008 to have fun, be creative and above all to receive something from far away that would put a smile on my face. Which means take your time, put a little effort into what your doing, read your swap partners profile for starters (even if it is senders choice, passing along crap is just a no no and the fact that I have to write this is just mind boggling). I am not saying send me a Rolls Royce, but if my profile says I adore cats and you send me dog stuff ((um yeah, the fact that I have to rate a 5 puts me in a tug of war: did you even try?)). I find myself so excited when I receive my partners info that I can't wait to read over their profiles to figure out how to surprise them? My mission is to make you say WOW, she shouldn't have. Isn't that the whole idea? To be surprised, wowed and most of all happy!

I have had some wonderful newbies send me some of the most beautiful and creative packages over the years so I am not one to discriminate on those who are new. Everyone deserves a shot. I wanted to make this my friendly reminder. Lately I have just received too much and in no better way to put it (crap) have had complaints from other swappers How Do I Rate This? It's like they didn't read the rules at all!

So if you are excited about swapping, want to spoil and make your partner say wow: please join!

Inspiration: Wouldn't be nice for fellow swappers who are born in February to send you a birthday card? I think so too.

The Details

  • Send 1 partner a "Store Bought Birthday Card

  • Include a note when your birthday is and how you are celebrating yours. Don't forget to wish you partner a happy birthday too!

Hearts go to those who make you feel extra special during your birthday season. You can add an extra goodie if you want, optional


No unexplained "1's or 3's" I will angel. No one likes a Flaker, so don't sign up if you cant follow the rules.

Will there be an January birthday card swap? Or should I host one?

We haven't had mail service this week due to critically low temps and wind chill factors. All our schools are closed and many businesses. We haven't left the house. I won't mark my card sent until I know the mail is running. So sorry.
