I like making people smile, and this swap is designed to do just that. Here's whatcha do:

  1. Put together a mix cd of about 15-20 tracks that make you smile. Might include sugary-sweet 50s pop, anything with smile-worthy lyrics, songs that bring back happy memories, a recording of a favorite comedian, maybe even a silly song you listened to as a child. Whatever works for you. Please don't include more than 2 songs by a single artist. Be sure to include a track listing sheet. You might even want to write descriptions about why some of the songs you chose make you happy.

  2. Make a list of 100 things that make you happy. I did this a long time ago in a writing class, and it was a real challenge, but fun and worth the effort.

  3. Include a little inexpensive surprise in the envelope that you think will make your partner smile. Could be something handmade, could be candy, could be a cute little notepad, a pen, glittery stickers, whatever.

If there's anything else you can think to include...Go for it. Maybe a short not about who you are? I dunno...Have fun with it.

Each person will send and receive from 3 partners. This is an international swap. Newbies are welcome. If you have a rating of under 4.5, please contact me, and promise me that you'll be better this time. And of course, if you're gonna be too lazy to send, don't sign up ;*)

I'd love to join, but three partners is way too many for my current time budget! Have fun, all swap participants!!!

lindalinda 04/ 8/2007 #

Thanks pinkwhirlitop! I was actually wondering if 3 partners would be too many before I listed the swap. I decided that it probably wouldn't be too bad since it's the type of swap where you basically send the same thing 3 times, and don't have to spend much money. I'm curious to see what other people think, though. If a lot of people think that 3 is too many, I'll change it to 1 or 2.

I don't have a problem with 3 partners, because, like you said, it's basically just copying something twice over and adding something special in each package. I've already picked out the songs and written my list!

BleakOptimism 04/10/2007 #

Ohh this sounds like fun, and in a similar frame to a swap I am running, the whole point of swap-bot for me is to try and make someone elses day just that little bit nicer, and what is better than cracking a great big smile. I think I am going to type that list out though ^_^ hehehe not hand writing that 3 times over

lindalinda 04/17/2007 #

Thanks, you guys. It looks like I'll be sticking with 3 partners, then. And yeah, BleakOptimism, i'll probably be typing part of it, too... typing will deinitely make this one easier ;)

3 is great :) And thanks for letting me join! Can someone tell me if I'd be allowed to send shells from NZ to your country?


SparklyPinkStarSnowflake 04/19/2007 #

Oh and if no-one's sure it'll be best if I leave it out - I've got heaps of pretty NZ shells I want to send too :(

I'm putting this together right now! I had a horrible, terrible today and figured that I could either sit around feeling crappy and crying or I could find some happy songs. It's actually really affecting my mood!! I almost feel like smiling now :)

SDDoula 05/ 9/2007 #

Joanne, Hisbrat, Tartan- Yours all went out today~ I had so much fun making the list, and I included an ATC I made. I have to make some more bookmarks today! I used to handwrite everything but with this I typed it out, and I think I am going back to handwriting- much prettier! Enjoy!

yarnpie 05/ 9/2007 #

blondie78, Tartan, zebra_3175 - they are in the mail. I hope that they make you smile! Please let me know when you receive them.

Dear swap partners, I just noticed that this swap was for 3 and not only 1 so I am going to be running a little bit behind. I'm so sorry, but please be patient and I promise it will be worth your time... THANKS!!

jkjk 05/15/2007 #

liz, thanks a ton for your mix and list!

lindalinda 05/15/2007 #

Oops! I'm so embarassed! I'm late for sending out packages for my own swap! My work schedule has been crazy this week, and I'm a bit disorganized, but don't worry Whistler, Chai and Priscilla...I'm sending 'em out tomorrow ;*)

user6281 05/15/2007 #

I accidentally left my swaps in my car! All's well though, they will definitely go out tomorrow! nice to see I'm not the only one late!

thanks for the mix gayle!

babysingsing 05/16/2007 #

Thanks, sugareyes -- I'm so glad you liked it! By the way, for those fascinated by the mysterious ways of the US Postal Service, it took only TWO DAYS to get from California to New Zealand! Amazing!

zebra3175 05/16/2007 #

Joanne, thank you for a lovely package. It arrived today (May 17 Australian time). I have the CD on now. Love it!!! And thanks for the receipe for the first song. My first ever received swap, and now I really think I am hooked!! Thanks again.

SDDoula 05/17/2007 #

I just received the Coolest swap, with no name on it. I don't know who sent it! :) I have tried going through the list of people in this swap, with no avail. If any of you sent a really cool CD with a black and white drawing of a cat listening to music in a city of ruin, and live or just mailed it from Lexington, KY- let me know~! :)The list inside was so cute and what a fun gift.

ArtfulAmy 05/18/2007 #

Cupcakecozy I got you package today....loved the cards and the tunes!!! Thanks!

Chrisondra 05/18/2007 #

I got the CD today Blondie78, but there's no list or little surprise. I'll be listening to the CD soon though! Thanks for that!

yarnpie 05/18/2007 #

Hi Michele - Thanks for the cd and your list definitely made me smile :)
