Easy swap. Newbies with well filled out Profiles encouraged. I understand we all have to start somewhere and this is a great swap to do that. Send a stuffed envelope with all sorts of goodies to one partner. At least a long business size envelope that measures approximately 4 x 9 inches, however you can certainly choose to go bigger. The items you send are senders choice, however it is always nice to look at your partners profile and try to send items they can use. Examples Include (but are not limited to) Post cards
Greeting Cards
Scrapbook papers, chipboard, etc ephemera
recipe/recipe cards
old photographs
small books
handmade items
craft supplies
teas/drink mixes
fabric scraps
sewing items
rubber stamps
Or anything else you want to share

PLEASE REINFORCE your envelope with tape at the seams or use a larger envelope, if you think there is a chance it will explode. You may also choose to put stuff in a baggie in case the envelope tears in transit. This is International. Have fun. No recent no sends allowed. Please rate your partner and remember international swapping times take longer to receive your item. No FLAKERS ALLOWED. Do Not Flake. I will list all flakers. I reserve the right to ban individuals

Postage may be high to ship to other countries so DO NOT SIGN UP for this swap if you can not afford to send your envelope to your partner. Please do not send scraps of memo paper/notebook/post-it type paper, etc. You may send the whole memo pad or notebook but scraps of note paper does not equal scrapbook papers

I am new to swapbot, I have never ever sent out a swap, but I signed up for three and already made boxes for two. I guess I will have to change or add the items I selected to put inside to fit the recievers' likes. What I would like to ask: You mention here "if you can not afford to send...". I live in Armenia, what if I post a big letter to US, how much will it cost? I know you shouldn't know the prices for what I asked, but in any case, if you have sent such a package already, I guess you would know the amont you should pay for such a large internetional postage. Would be glad if you helped me with your advice, cos I love the idea and would really like to participate if it is really affordable. Thank you!

@aidaegonyan I have no idea what your postal service would charge you to mail a package. I would recommend asking your local post office their prices for mailing small packages. If you sign up for this swap your partner could come from anywhere in the world, not just America. I have paid up to $20 to mail a small package, and others have paid more. It really depends on where you are, and where you are mailing to. And yes, it can cost quite a bit.

aidaegonyan, I live in Brazil, if I send a stuffed envelope to Armenia I'll pay R$9,15 on economic way, this means US$5,18

Your postoffice dont have a website? Go there and ask before sign

Eshara 04/15/2010 #

@aidaegonyan The last stuffed envie swap I did cost me approx $13 USD (it was a rather large envie...lol)

Eshara 04/15/2010 #

Oh...I live in Trinidad & Tobago and it was going to the USA

Eshara 04/15/2010 #

$13 USD as postage for me that is. LOL! Ok I'm done!!! LOLOL

h0mesickalien 04/17/2010 #

ummmm, I am very new to this. Do I wait for the swap coordinator to assign me a swap partner?

coleenfranks 04/17/2010 #

Yes, coordinator will assign partners after final sign up date

h0mesickalien 04/18/2010 #

@coleenfranks Oh OK. thanks for the help. :)

phillipsmartha25 04/19/2010 #

Love love love these swaps, I've done the two before this one. It's always neat getting a huge envelope of stuff :D

wolfeagle 04/23/2010 #

I agree. I'm looking forward to swapping. I'm cleaning my craft room today so there are endless treasures waiting to be re-discovered.LOL

rosiefsw 04/24/2010 #

I love these swaps, but I think I will have to miss this one because I am moving house soon and need to start packing things away rather than sorting through them for things my partner might like! I'll be back though!

Lieve 04/24/2010 #

I know I'm a newbie, but I have to start somewhere right... I hope you'll give me the opportunity... thanks in advance :-)

PixieFirefly 04/25/2010 #

This should be lots of fun! I am already setting stuff aside for this.

shout4 04/25/2010 #

I'm so glad this is open to newbies! I love this kind of swap and I love picking out things I hope my partner will like :)

Eshara 04/25/2010 #

yendi 04/27/2010 #

I'm a newbie, and this sounds like a great first swap to try out. Thanks!

slamophile 04/27/2010 #

What's a 4 x 9 in. envelope? Is that like a # 10 envelope, or, are you talking about a manilla or padded envie ? Thank you.

Kacie1084 04/28/2010 #

I am new as well.... I have done one swap before this.... I can't wait!

NanonZanzi 04/28/2010 #

Is it possible to send this in economy class instead of airmail? Postages are killing me and I'd really love to send maximum stuffed envelope. :)

BirdGuhl 04/28/2010 #

I'm a newbie and this will be my first swap!!! I can't wait to get my partner and finish filling my envelope. x

inelegance 04/28/2010 #

I'm a newbie and really looking forward to swapping.

wolfeagle 04/29/2010 #

@slamophile Yes, in the US it a business sized #10 envelope.

itzmizzsmiley 04/29/2010 #

Hi guys,

I'm a newbie to this swap thing. How do I get a partner to send to? Do I just choose someone to my liking or will the coordinator assign me one?

aidaegonyan 04/29/2010 #

Cool, I want to do it! I had some experience with sending already and checked out the prices. I feel it's okay and I WILL DO IT!!! ^_^

cwchappell 04/29/2010 #

I'm ready to stuff my enelope

zebra3175 04/29/2010 #

I did a swap like this back when I started swapping, and I got burnt! My partner just dissapeared off here and I never got anything. So PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE who ever gets me, dont flake. :) Im hoping this swap will restore my faith in these types of swaps. Enjoy everyone. Look forward to sending to whom ever I get assigned.

I didn't get the chance to mark the package sent yesterday (not near a computer), but I did send it!

paperfairys 05/29/2010 #

I was offline for a couple of wks after finding out my mother had passed away :( was such a huge shock for me as she was only 56 years old.

But came back online as it helps me to get through the pain, anyway ... point is, i recieved an email about this swap and wanted to say that I HAVE NOT RECIEVED ANYTHING YET for this one.

It matters very little in priority compared to the bigger things that are going on in my life now but still .........

wolfeagle 07/ 7/2010 #
