I think it would be lovely to fill eachothers' mailbox with exciting and inspiring goodies to start the new year!

This is a destash in the sense that you are passing on things that aren't exactly your current style or that you've been looking at for so long that you aren't inspired anymore, or that you LOVE but have too many of... NOT for trash!! If you wouldn't want to receive it, don't send it.

The ONLY exception to this rule is if your partner's profile states that they particularly love broken things or something specific that you have.

Unless your partner's profile states no broken jewelry, then broken pieces that are made up of useable parts that can be upcycled is OK.


  • there must be at least three TYPES of items: jewelry/beads/buttons, paper/blank PC, stickers/washi, cosmetic samples/skincare, cardmaking or craft supplies (for a craft mentioned on your partners profile), crystals, etc
  • between 50gm and 200gm
  • include at least one intact/complete piece (high quality handmade or a vintage find or store bought. Such as a full size makeup product, intact necklace, new ink pad and stamp or letter set, etc.)
  • write a note or letter or card with a personal message
  • no obligation to spend a lot of money since much of this will be from your (no doubt overflowing) collection, but aim for a parcel that would cost at least $7-10 at a thrift store/second hand shop
  • thoughtfully read your partner's profile and avoid things they dislike!
  • have fun, and look forward to opening your mail box soon 😊📮💗

Newbies must have a filled out profile. If I have ANY DOUBTS about an unrated user, or if you have any unaddressed recent 1s or 3s, I will kick you from the swap I'm sorry. Message me detailed explanations to avoid this.

Include your username and the swap name for ease of rating.

Envelope mail art is optional, but encouraged.

If you receive a parcel over 50g with three different types of useable items and at least one intact gift, you must rate 5 stars.

**There is an expectation of real thoughtfulness and effort.*"

DO NOT FLAKE. Only sign up if you are absolutely sure you cn send a high quality parcel internationally before the send-by date. I will angel if absolutely necessary but I will be very disappointed and ban any flakes from all future swaps.

Profile-based means you must have a well filled profile. INCLUDING wishlist, dislikes, hobbies/crafts, and favourites information.

Join in and have fun!!

I wish I could join but it seems I can't, I don't meet the minimum rating requirement. Maybe next time 💝

I love the idea behind this swap but I think the rating requirement might actually be too low - just a thought that this might keep people from joining :)

FeetInTheSoil 11/20/2019 #

Hopefully with my edit both those problems are fixed??

@paperboats9 i haven't hosted a type 3 before so please let me know if I am off base with anything

This is the swap I have been waiting for <3

@ivylines yay I'm glad :) I imagine a lot of us have great things in our stash that just don't spark or creativity anymore, so it's an opportunity to freshen up the collections!

This is the swap Ivylines have been waiting for yet she has never bothered sending it. I am still waiting and after her rather nasty messages, I guess I will never see her swap. Swap bot stinks
