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. This is not a Profile swap, so please do not spend a lot of money shopping for profile surprises. This is more for you to send items that you have on hand, that are in good usable condition. Please do not send your trash, like your used candy wrappers, or written on apt. card, etc. Do send items from the list below. If you are unsure of items, you can ask me.
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/coffee/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 the USA version. Have fun.
No recent no sends allowed. Please rate your partner. No FLAKERS ALLOWED. Do Not Flake. I will list all flakers. I reserve the right to ban individuals.

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 really looking forward to another round of this. It's a great way for me to part with my scraps and such that I think I'll use, but never do. :-)

abusingaudacity 05/12/2010 #

I'm a newbie, and this sounds wonderful! :)

Appelflap 05/12/2010 #

Hi, I just joined your swap but I wasn't paying attention the the "regional" part. I Live in Belgium, Europe, and it just seemed like a lot of fun to join. If you want me to back out no problem :-) If I can stay and be an underdog, please let me know :-) kind regards !

wolfeagle 05/12/2010 #

@Magorian Yes, this one is USA only. You are more then welcome to sign up for the International version.

Lilypink 05/15/2010 #

Hi - I'm a newbie so hope my profile is filled out ok! Looking forward to my 1st one :-)

themom223 05/16/2010 #

Looking forward to this...I am so excited. 1st swap!

Scrappymommy4 05/19/2010 #

is anyone hosting a international version?

wolfeagle 05/19/2010 #

Yes, I host an International version also. The last one is finishing up and then a new one will be listed.

SamBuck 05/20/2010 #

I've never done a "stuffed envie" type swap but I'm really excited for this one!!

wolfeagle 05/21/2010 #

I think they are a lot of fun. I hope you have a good time to.

DianaCowgirl 05/23/2010 #

yes could you send me my partner soon so i can send out my enves before i leave on June 8th. for Nashville thanks Diana Cowgirl.

wolfeagle 05/24/2010 #

@DianaCowgirl People can sign up thru June 11, and then partners can be assigned up to one week after that date, though I usually assign them the next day, so No, I can not send you a partner early as the Swap-bot computer will randomly assign partners from everyone in the swap after I review profiles. I have no control over who gets who for a partner, and I do not have the ability to assign any early.

getchasome 05/25/2010 #

this is my 1st swap here, I'm excited! I have done swaps thru blogs & flickr before, usually aprons or soap swaps. Looking forward to this!

RadicalRecrafter 05/26/2010 #

I love these swaps! They are so much fun and such a great way for me to destash!

starfire724 05/26/2010 #

Thank you. I love them to.

rinfrog 05/28/2010 #

I had so much fun putting together and recieving the last one...I have started getting this one together, but I love to add something special from my partners prifile too :)

Holalola 05/29/2010 #

Hi, I'm a newbie and just finished filling my profile just so I could join this swap! I can't wait!

shoeboxmemories 05/30/2010 #

I'm also a newbie. I hope my profile info is filled out to it's max. Im not new to swapping, but just new to swap bot. Can't wait.

wolfeagle 05/30/2010 #

Some of the Profiles I have looked at have been weak. To add more info to your Profile, please go to Edit Profile, then select Personal. You will be brought to a screen that has fill in catagories and you can even create your own sections. Just answer the questions and fill in your profile. It really helps your partner to send you items you will hopefully like and it helps us get to know you. Take Care.

shoeboxmemories 05/30/2010 #

I think my profile was one of the "weak" ones. I've added a lot more info. Hows is now?

angeliams 05/30/2010 #

this is going to b allot of fun!:)

wolfeagle 05/31/2010 #

@shoeboxmemories Yours loooks good now. Thanks.

LuckyXIII 06/ 2/2010 #

This will be my first swap and I'm really looking forward to it! Can't wait to get started; I have a lot of goodies :D

DianaCowgirl 06/ 2/2010 #

Yes could i have my partner now because i am leaving for Nashville,ill be back the 15th. do you want me to wait till then?

wolfeagle 06/ 3/2010 #

Sorry, I have no control over partners. They get assigned randomly, and all at the same time, by the swap-bot computer. I would suggest that if the date doesn't work for you, then don't sign up for this one and join us for the next one instead.

scrapbookingurl 06/ 3/2010 #

I live on Guam a USA territory is that okay? I do hope that it is okay but if it is not i totally understand! I just hope that i do get to do this one so my profile ratings will go up and i can do more swaps!

cricutcritter 06/ 4/2010 #

thanks for giving us newbies a chance, very excited about this one!!

playkonstantine 06/ 4/2010 #

I just stuffed a bubble mailer full with fun goodies, i cant wait to mail it out :)

glennasgarden 06/ 4/2010 #

So much fun I am in!

Ryleighsmom 06/ 5/2010 #

DianaCowGirl, The computer does not allow a host to assign partners early. Once the swap sign up date has passed, only then does the host hit the "Assign partners" button and Swap-bot does the assigning. There is no way to get a swap partner early, so there's nothing wolfeagle can do. If you are concerned about it, you can drop from the swap and catch it the next time around. =) Hope this helps.

shell1879 06/ 5/2010 #

sounds like a fun swap i can't wait to stuff an envelope full of goodies :o)

creativetempo 06/ 6/2010 #

Can't wait to send this out!! I've already stuffed an envelope full!

DancingWolves 06/ 7/2010 #

I'm a newbie and can't wait to get this started. Thank you for giving us new peeps a chance.

champagneshadow 06/ 8/2010 #

I'm very excited to make this my introductory swap on this site. Thanks for opening this one to newbies!!!!

wolfeagle 06/12/2010 #

Partners have now been assigned. Have fun!

scrapbookingurl 06/13/2010 #

Where do i find the person that is gonna swap with me? Please teach me!!!

creativetempo 06/13/2010 #

in the upper right of the page in the yellow box it says "see the partners you send to" .. click on that. the person you send to isnt the same person who will send your package!

Lorivintage55 06/16/2010 #

I will be sending out my package this Saturday...I'm away from home right now :))

LuckyXIII 06/16/2010 #

I should be sending tomorrow. I have the envie stuffed and ready to go :D

LuckyXIII 06/17/2010 #

Yup, I just sent mine out.

themom223 06/26/2010 #

...been very busy with new job...sent mine on last day, but got it in...whew...LOL.

wolfeagle 06/27/2010 #

Thank you to everyone who have sent on time! It is very much appreciated.

wolfeagle 07/ 7/2010 #

If your partner has not sent your envelope, please contact me once you have rated them a 1. Thank you.

wolfeagle 07/ 9/2010 #

It looks like we have 5 flakes. I am so sorry if you were flaked on. It really is irritating, especially when most had perfect 5 ratings.

LuckyXIII 07/10/2010 #

Too bad about those who were flaked on. That is depressing.

Stardustfalling 07/19/2010 #

Honestly five flakes out of two hundred and twenty-six people doesn't seem too bad. However, it is so frustrating when you are one of those people flaked on. I would be happy to angel one of those people if that would help.

wolfeagle 08/18/2010 #

@stardustfalling We do need another angel. PMing you. Thanks so much for offering to be an angel!!! It is so appreciated.
