Description:

This idea stems from an international swap freckleface hosted!! I thought it was a great idea but wanted to do a regional one :)

It's pretty simple: You will have FIVE partners and you will send them each a regular envelope using just a regular old stamp. You will decide what you send them and they don't have to be the same. Just send SOMETHING fun to get in the mail.

Here are some suggestions: a personalized letter, a sticker sheet, a couple ribbons, a couple memo sheets, interesting paper scraps, or ANYTHING else you can think of.

This way you should be getting FIVE random fun things in the mail :) It's a way to meet new penpals, get some mail, and share some stuff you have lying around. Not to mention, it's a lot of mail and a lot of chances to brighten someones day without spending much money!

Anyone with a rating of 4.9 or higher is welcome, and as always, feel free to PM with any questions :)

So you send one thing to five partners?

SueJohnson 09/25/2009 #

USA only correct? I am just double checking.

: )

thanks!

Im using cool envelopes as well. I think that makes whats inside twice as cool :]

ButterflyPrincess 09/25/2009 #

Love it! Need more of it! lol ;)

snailmaillover 09/25/2009 #

Yes :) You send one thing to each of the five partners and yes it's only USA. I love the idea of cool envelopes!! :)

What size should the envelope be? I don't want my partners to be disappointed if I send the wrong size.

ButterflyPrincess 09/25/2009 #

Probably regular size I am assuming.

snailmaillover 09/25/2009 #

You may use any size envelope that you would like. I was thinking the business envelopes that are four and one eighth inch by nine and a half. But any envelope will do :)

Man! Wish I wasn't new to this site. This looks like so much fun!

I am a newbie and hope some day you would consider doing this again for newbies to join. Thank you!

snailmaillover 09/27/2009 #

I think I will. I just wanted to do one first, to see how it goes. It would be really hard to angel for 60 plus people :) So, I wanted to try it out first :) But I am glad for all of the interest, and I will do it for newbies soon!

Would have loved to do this swap if it was USA/Canada.

ButterflyPrincess 09/28/2009 #

Well it seems like it was a good idea! Lots of people signed up. ;)

snailmaillover 09/28/2009 #

I'm getting so excited about this :) It's going to be a lot of mail traveling through the air from this swap!

dynasourX 09/29/2009 #

I am also a newbie who'd love to join. I think you could make all of us newbies partners!

snailmaillover 09/29/2009 #

I don't have any choice over who gets who for a partner, so I can not do it that way. The next one I do will include newbies though! Thanks for all the interest!
