In a few weeks, it will be my 10 year SwapBot anniversary! Yay! While I have hosted a number of swaps in this decade, I would really really like one of my swaps to make to the Top Swaps list. Here's another attempt to achieve this (yikes - I feel so vulnarable now! :D)

This swap is quite simple - send your partner a Collage Postcard. The base can be an actual postcard, which you alter and upgrade by adding bits of magazine cutouts, patterned paper, speech bubbles (you name it!), or it can be a totally handmade card. The theme/subject is sender's choice - but be sure to check your partner's profile for any particular dislikes.

Card Requirements:
- Make your card out of sturdy material, do not seal the front with clear tape or anything.
- Send your card naked.
- Important: no digital/automated printed stamps, but one or more interesting stamps (adding up to the required postage ofcourse) from your country.
- If you use an existing postcard as a base, make sure to perform at least three visible alterations/add ons.
- Don't forget to write a nice message ánd your swapbot name on the back.

Swapper Requirements:
- At least a 4.98 rating;
- No unrated swappers - participants must have at least 5 type 2 or 3 swap ratings;
- No recent/unexplained 3's;
- No 1's from swappers that are still active on SwapBot without a proper explanation (please send me a message in this case);
- No late swaps on your profile;

In addition, I will remove anyone who has not been online in the week before the sign up deadline - and I reserve the right to remove others from the swap before assigning - for whatever reason I may have.

I have made this a type 2 swap because you could keep the craft component low if you wanted to.

Bonus RAK

Also, to celebrate my SwapBot anniversary I will randomly pick two swap participants from the comments section and send them a 'profile proof' RAK (Random Act of Kindness) - after the sign up deadline. So if you would like to qualify for that drawing, please leave a comment after joining.

I will announce those names in the comments section when I send the RAK envelopes.

I am so excited that AZMOM shared this swap with our Group because I really enjoy the freedom and creativity of collage as a means to "get it out!" It lets your soul do the work without your brain getting in the way too much! LOL! Anyway, I think that art therapy rocks! If you agree, perhaps you'll find more inspiration here


CookieMomster78 06/22/2019 #

yay! You're #4 now!! That's top five!!!!! LOL!! I'm proud of you and all those who are helping you reach your goal. Feels good to be apart of something net like this!! Thank you everyone (participating here).
