Weddings don't only happen in June, like the original swap did but I thought we'd give this a go and do a round two. You will be sending, to ONE PARTNER: "Something old." "Something new." "Something borrowed." and "Something blue". Here are a few guidelines so we that we all know what to send and what to expect.
For something "old": Think thrift store, vintage, recycled, empherma, gently used, etc. Not old, musty, smelly, dirty, torn... junk.
For something "new": Look at your partners profile (and have yours properly filled out)!! Send ANYTHING "new" (as in still in the original packaging). Candy, package of notecards, stickers, pens... embellishments, anything THEY would LOVE. NEW here as in brand-new, store bought. Not handmade.
For something "borrowed": Re-gift it. Something maybe you got (in a swap or otherwise) that you just can't use or haven't used. Anything you might have received thats just not your color or your style, etc. Pass it along. Another idea would be to "borrow" something from your likes and/or stash as long as its not something that your partner has listed in their dislikes. Maybe a fave candy of yours or a craft or technique demonstrated that you like and/or they wish they could do. For example: I can't knit but admire those that can. I make ATCs and greeting cards but not everyone does.
For something "blue", I think that's obvious. Anything in any shade of blue. This CAN be HANDMADE but does not have to be.
Thats it! FOUR (well thought out) ITEMS to ONE PARTNER. I don't want to put a price limit but I'm thinking less than $10, more like $5 depending on what you get as something "new", before postage. Please make this swap something personal and specific to your partner. Lets aim for "fives" and "hearts"!! Put some LOVE into it and it will show.
THIS SWAP IS INTERNATIONAL and YOU ARE MAKING A COMMITMENT WHEN YOU JOIN, TO FOLLOW THROUGH.
Due to at least one "flaker" (that I am aware of) from the last round,you must have completed and have been rated for at least 5 postal swaps (excluding email ones). I will be checking and re-checking profiles. You need to have "ideas" in it that your partner can use for this swap. All other ratings and issues will be looked at individually and I will ban anyone I feel may be a problem.
