Welcome! I'm glad you're checking this out! I was inspired to host this swap as a result of the Rainy Day Swap. I am changing things up a bit though.
Let's get the not so fun, but necessary stuff out of the way first, shall we?
You should have, at least, a 4.9 rating. No unresolved 1's. No no-sends. Newbies are welcome with a full profile. I will check profiles before I assign partners. I am limiting this swap to the USA. Please feel free to send me a message if you would like me to answer any questions. I will do my best.
Edit: I will not be able to angel this swap.
Okay, on to the more fun stuff!
You have to include at least 5 items. If you send something like blank postcards, a small set (example, a set of 5 cards) would count as one item.
Please be prepared to spend a little money on this swap. I'd say be prepared to spend $10 on this swap, but no more than $15. Postage doesn't count towards the total.
Some ideas for things you can include are:
A blank journal
A book (used is fine too, but in good condition.)
A handmade mix CD
Blank postcards they can write on and send
Anything crafty like fabric or buttons
Tea or hot chocolate gift set
A nice letter
A set of recipe cards
A yummy hand lotion
Something handmade. (Only well made items please. For example, it wouldn't be very fun to receive a coffee cozy only to find out that it is falling apart after two uses.)
Check out your partner's profile for ideas. If you need to, message your partner if you want to double check about a scent or tasty treat preference. People can be picky about scents or your partner might be allergic to something. When in doubt, just write them. They won't bite.
We will be filling a USPS Priority Mail Small Flat Rate Box (seen here: http://tinyurl.com/8dr4rp). These are available for free from your local postoffice. Plus, they are a flat rate of $4.95 to send (up to 70 lbs). This will help keep shipping costs under control. I don't know about you, but I don't expect to be able to get 70 lbs into the small box we'll be using. :)
I'm not providing a "theme" for this swap. Use your partner's profile as a hint for a theme. Do they really like owls? Go with it! Use your imagination. :)
Edit: I've decided to move back the dates for this swap by about a week. This is to let some of the participants have a bit more time to gather ratings if they are waiting on them. If there are any concerns regarding this, please feel free to message me. Thanks!
