IF YOU ARE HAVING ANY ISSUES WITH YOUR POSTAL SERVICE AT THIS TIME, PLEASE POST IN THE COMMENT SECTION BELOW. When partner are assigned make sure and look to see it your partners have any comments there. No one should be rated low because of the disruption of COVID-19

This is a newbie friendly swap. It should be extremely easy to do.

Experienced swappers are also welcome.

Just choose three different things from the list below and send to your partner before the deadline.

5 cancelled stamps

1 unused notecard with envelope

1 uncut sheet of stickers - none smaller than a US penny & no teacher/reward stickers

1 unused postcard

3 handmade envelopes

1 craft pattern (full instructions start to finish)

1 bookmark

A letter set (2 sheets of stationery w/matching envelope)

5 different sheets of note/memo paper

A handmade item

1 ATC (they are for trading!)

3 different fun buttons (washi tape to paper so not sticky)

2 different decorative blank recipe cards

1 piece of fabric at least 4x4 inches

A recipe on a decorative recipe card

a foreign coin (washi tape to paper so not sticky)

an unused greeting card - Birthday, Christmas, Anniversary, Sympathy, etc

What to do: Choose three different things that are on the list and send to your partner by the deadline. They must be different - example: DO NOT send 3 bookmarks. This does not count. And no, a handmade bookmark DOES NOT count as 2 items.

Newbies welcomed, with a well filled out profile (I DO CHECK AND WILL BAN). Because of delivery issues, multi-profiler/flaker concerns, and site policies I require real names. If you join a swap of mine with a fake name or no last name, you will be asked to fix it.

No recent/unexplained low ratings - This means message me with an explanation why you have a 1 or 3. PLEASE check out my profile page and read the "About Swaps I Host" section for an in-depth explanation of my swap rules.

Also ~ I live in "Boonyville" Michigan and sometimes our internet connection isn't very good. This is especially true when it rains & in the winter months. I have been told that swap hosts have 7 days after the sign up date to assign partners. So please be patient, partners will get assigned and if needed I will extend the send date.

If you know of a bad swapper signed up for this swap, I appreciate being informed, but please DO NOT post to the comment section! Send me a PM and I will deal with it that way.

Any questions, just ask.

Comments/suggestions for future items are also welcome

My mail was slow before the pandemic and it is still even slower now. And very erratic.

I mailed an envelope to Ohio and they got it within 2 days. I waited 17 days for an invitation from a town about 25 miles from me.

Please be patient when receiving or sending to me.

My mail has been hit and miss as far as I know of now people are getting the mail from me in a timely manner however there are a few that haven’t rated and I’m a little concerned but the deadline on those swaps hasn’t even hit yet so that may be the reason. I have been getting things too but I am still waiting on some items so it’s hard to say exactly what is going on with the mail. Please just have patience as if I signed up for the swap I usually mail the same day parters are assigned and there should be no issues! Let’s have some fun!

I sent my package out on Friday via flat mail. It was just a little bulky because of the fabric, but I weighed it and added the appropriate number of stamps. Now I am panicking because I’ve read more about what is “flat” and what is a “parcel” according to usps. I think mine met the flat requirements but am having some doubts.

If I accidentally sent it with the wrong amount of postage, will it come back to me? I’d hate for it to show up with postage due.

From now on I’m going to take everything to the post office to send! This newbie is stressed!
