UPDATE - see below!
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 different blank notecards with envelopes to each of your partners.
~~UPDATE~~ January 3 - it may be because it's just after the holidays, or who knows what the reason, but I have had some difficulty finding ANY "packets" with different cards in each - and so, everyone, the "rule" has changed, to say that if you want to send cards with the SAME design, that is fine -
And as you RECEIVE your swaps, please note this accordingly, and rate your partner with this in mind. 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, and get them in a mailing envie, even weigh it and attach the postage, all ready to mail.
(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 get it in the mail.
About a week after the mailing deadline, you will have the chance to leave a rating for your partners - remember to DO THAT!
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....
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!
(hope to maybe see some of you in my round robin swaps soon!)
