So this is my first time coordinating a swap, but it's been something I've been dying to do on my own for a long time! Each individual will have three partners to swap with. On a Postcard or a note card (one that comes with an envelope) you will write words of kindness to your swappers. Please make sure to check your partners profiles just in case if you are making any "religious" quotes or anything of that sort. We don't want to offend anyone. It can be anything from, "I hope today brings you great happiness" to an actual quote such as, "Live as though it were your last day". The whole point of this swap is to send everyone just a little bit of cheer. We never know when someone is having a bad day or a bad week or even a bad year. This way your words will have the power to cheer them up. It could be a simple sentence such as, "I hope you have a wonderful day". It doesn't matter. It just has to be kind and short. No paragraphs or full blown letters. It would be nice if we post what our partners wrote to us afterward, but that's totally by choice.

No preference on the postcards or note cards but it would be nice if they were somehow related to the postcard/note card or just an appealing image. Send postcards NAKED (meaning no envelope, just written on with postage) and SEND note cards in an envelope.

Newbies allowed with a well-filled out profile!

This is a great idea! It'll be a great addition to my "happy file" that I keep for days when it's hard to find my happy thought! :)

I just wanted to clarify! So we only send one postcard or envelope to each of our three partners? :) Thanks! I love this swap! Great idea!

can you tell me this in other words..... the notecards should have the envelopes inside the envelope?? and...

the kind statement should be written in the notecard?

the notecard should SAY the kind statement??

if you are sending a notecard: write some kind words in a notecard, then send the notecard in an envelope.

the kind words (or "kind statement") should be written INSIDE the card. So just take a nice card and write your words inside it, then mail it to your partner. :)

I hope that clears it up for you a little. It can be confusing if English isn't your native language. :)

I thought "naked" PCs meant that they had no writing on them??

Naked postcards means not sending in an envelope.

I just recently came across an older swap like this and re-read it. It was great the second time around and just as much appreciated. And when I sent a msg. to the sender- it made her day also. Kindness is the gift that keeps on giving.

The host has not logged on since Dec. 17...not good, and the turnaround on this swap is very short...

TerryF 12/28/2010 #

I am going to duplicate this swap, but make it later so it doesn't conflict with this one in case the host comes back in the next few days. (";)

TerryF 12/29/2010 #

I have deleted my swap.

sorry guys. i've had a hard time getting to the computer in a while. Between my daughters birthday, christmas, then her getting the flu things have been crazy. Because I havent been logged on in a while I am going to extend the swap deadline. If you have already sent it great! Sorry about this guys. It's been a rough couple of weeks.

and to clarify, you can send a notecard (in the envelope) with the words written inside. The postcard has to be sent as a postcard, not in an envelope with the words written on the side where you would usually write the message.

Hey guys just viewed the list and saw that the majority of you have already sent out to your partners!! That's so awesome! Please make sure that if you have you don't forget to mark it as sent! :) if you still haven't please contact your partners! Thanks so much guys for making this a great swap!!!
