This is one of my favorite kinds of low costs swaps! Send your two partners a few days worth of small and mostly flat items that reflect your life. Items might include postcards from your area, a bag of your favorite tea, the program of a play you went to see, a menu from the place you last went to eat, a recipe from last week, an odd but clean note you found on the street, a brochure from the museum where you volunteer, a funny card you received, blank note cards you got a good deal on at the local thrift shop, your favorite local free paper, brochures of places you went on a recent vacation, a free sample art postcard from a local show, a small pack of stickers, a favorite magazine, a temp tat from the local fair, free bookmarks from your local library, etc. Make it something your partners will enjoy and even though it is inexpensive, something you will enjoy compiling and sending.
International- so we can share everyday paper ephemera around the world! Since the things we are sending do not have to be partner specific, you can start collecting now. :)
Open to experienced swappers who are non-flakers who have at least a 4.97. Also open to dedicated newbies who are not flakey and have a full profile. Anyone with no sends, regular late sends, or sketchy profiles will be dropped.
Used and found items are of course okay for this swap but please do not send dirty or smelly items. Also, this is NOT a destash swap. Do not send your partners a bunch of cleaned out craft supplies/ unwanted paper swaps for the sake of getting rid of them. This swap has been great fun in the past and a good way to learn about others! But a few people have used it solely as a chance to clean out their junk drawers and send random bits of paper and craft supplies with no meaning behind them. I will have to rate a three for an envelope of all bits and bobs like random strings and scrap booking paper destashing. Feel free to do the same.
