Description:

I have done a swap like this before and everyone really enjoyed it!! It's a great way to get to know more swappers, receive ratings, start pen pal relationships, de-stash and GET MAIL! I mean, let's face it...that is a BIG part of why we do this!!

Here's what we do: We will each have 6 partners! I know that is A LOT, so if you can't commit to sending to all six...please don't join! You will send each of your six partners ANYTHING! That means, a postcard, an envelope with a few stickers, a bookmark, a picture of you (as a postcard), some fun paper scraps, a ribbon, some magazine cut outs. ANYTHING!

This means: do NOT expect to get six of your favorite sticker sheets in the world (although it worked out well for me last time!) No expectations, no pressure! Make it something you would like to receive. If it is a short note, make it interesting, if it's a postcard: make it a pretty one. But really you just need to send ANYTHING to all six partners!!

Hope you can get into this and make it interesting and creative! What sorts of things will YOU think to send??

No flakers!! This is U.S.A. only so it will stay cheap with SIX partners! :) Everyone needs to write their swap-bot name somewhere on it so we know who to rate, and EVERYONE needs to rate their partners!!

HAPPY SWAPPING!!

****I WANT TO ADD A LITTLE SOMETHING AFTER I HAVE SEEN SOME OF THE SWAPPERS WHO HAVE JOINED! ALTHOUGH I WANT EVERYONE TO BE INVOLVED, IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A 4.5 YOU WILL NOT BE PART OF THIS SWAP. ALL NEWBIES ARE WELCOME AS LONG AS IT LOOKS LIKE YOU CARE ABOUT THE SITE. ALSO, I WILL BAN PEOPLE WITH SEVERAL ONES RECENTLY, EVEN THOUGH THIS IS A CHEAP SWAP, IT'S NOT FAIR FOR YOU TO RECEIVE SIX THINGS AND NOT SEND OUT ANYTHING, I HOPE PEOPLE WILL UNDERSTAND****

Great swap..have been waiting on a swap like this!

snailmaillover 02/28/2010 #

I should add: just to be clear. If you receive ANYTHING from your partner, they get a five. The only requirement is that they send you some form of snail mail :) :) So glad you all have joined!

crochetjunkie 03/ 2/2010 #

Thank you for the above clarifyer. I have had issues with that in the past. I hope to get some great things!!

i'd love an international (hey canada) version of this swap! maybe with fewer partners to compensate for any extra postage?

snailmaillover 03/ 2/2010 #

I would love for you to host one or when this one has been completed, I will host one :) Thanks for the interest!

MEOW

I created a Canadian version http://www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/56059 happy swapping!

Rie60 03/ 4/2010 #

But you are also saying SML that participants should also try to SEND some good stuff correct? It's never fun to put your heart in something and then receive something in return that looks like there was no thought put into it- Im sure that goes without saying, but....just saying. Looks like fun!

StephanieFromTN 03/ 4/2010 #

I'm with @Rie60 - While the swap really does sound like a lot of fun, it really would be a bummer to put effort into giving six different people a fun envie in their mailbox, and to get some secondhand stickers or something.

I guess it would all boil down to the swap partners following the rule "Don't send something you wouldn't want to get"

Taffypull 03/ 4/2010 #

I can't wait to do this. It's going to be so fun.

Morgaine 03/ 5/2010 #

If anyone is interested in another round, I created an international version with a few modifications:

This is awesome! I have been out of the loop for a couple of weeks due to family emergency...this is a GREAT illness

ceegee7701 03/ 5/2010 #

I DIDNT MEAN ILLNESS! silly computer kicked me out! I meant...THIS IS A GREAT WAY TO JUMP BACK IN! :)

snailmaillover 03/ 5/2010 #

:) So glad you are all joining! Yes, everyone should send NICE things. But the point is, you can send a pretty postcard, or just a note with a few scraps of paper. The idea of nice is in the SENDER. Please don't send a freebie postcard with no note, or some rusty stickers or anything.

JUST SEND WHAT YOU WOULD ALSO BE HAPPY TO RECEIVE! :) :)

I am super excited to do this. I am new to this site and I am eager to get started. It's so hard to get into swaps being a newbie, so I am so thankful that this is open to newbies...Thank You...

crochetjunkie 03/ 5/2010 #

this swap iskind of like a gamble. That makes it a bit more fun in some ways.

snailmaillover 03/ 5/2010 #

Yes, I am hoping that everyone will get at least one or two things that they LOVE! I know what I send is going to be nice :)

TamSpires 03/ 8/2010 #

all sent! i hope everyone likes what i sent! i tried my best to pick things you could use or would enjoy. i'm excited to see what i receive! :o]

billowing 03/11/2010 #

I made everyone something that I'd be happy to recieve but the last one fell apart in my hands, sorry miss number six T_T I threw something together for you. I hope she still likes it.

vpitt 03/11/2010 #

I hope everyone feels hooked up with their packages. I admit they were put together quick and sloppy, but are still packed full of lots of fun stuff!

PeachesNButterflies 03/12/2010 #

I am really excited about this swap. It is my first one. I thought really hard on what to get my partners without going way out. The adrialine rush that came with this was amazing. I really hope my partners all like their packages. :-)

falseawakening 03/12/2010 #

I had so much fun doing this swap. I really hope you do more!!

Perrijo 03/13/2010 #

Ok, I have to confess that I liked what I sent so much, I had to get some for my own personal use.
