Since we all use pens and markers for writing cards, letters, postcards, and journaling, I thought it would be fun to host a swap to send fun, colorful pens/markers to our partners. Ideas include: gel pens, metallic pens, calligraphy pens, Sharpies, brush pens/markers, glitter pens, micron pens, etc. - - Think colorful! - -

Please do not send highlighters or pens/markers that are too light in color (yellow, peach...)

You will send 2 different colorful pens/markers to your 2 partners. (You will buy 4, and send 2 to each.) The postage cost should be minimal as pens are light-weight. The swap is sender's choice. I'm not going to put a value on this, other than to say, please send pens you would love to receive. This swap is open to everyone with a well-filled out profile. I will check profiles and reserve the right to ban anyone who looks like they might flake. Please play nice.

Good tip bluecrayons. If you can get in on their 40% off sales, you can get good deals. I found some 2 neat pens at another store, but still need to get my last 2, so perhaps I'll check JoAnns out.

wow i must not of read the part of light colors. the ones i got at joanns was gold in silver. so i went and got a 4 pack of markers and pens and splt . i sent 3 in each pack.

The reason I said no light colors - was that it's hard to see a note card written in yellow ink or peach ink. All other colors are fine.

I really like this swap b/c everywhere I go, I see the same pens and markers. I can't even find anything special at Michael's or Hobby Lobby, and we don't have any specialty scrapbooking stores. I request that someone do this swap again in the near future.

How am I supposed to rate an envelope with a huge hole and no pens?

I see that one of my partners is still marked Not Sent for this swap. Is it appropriate to message her or should I wait? What is considered appropriate etiquette for me to do?

PonyandBoat, I checked and both of your partners have marked sent. The last one being today (5-7-10).
