Please read all instructions and keep in mind postage may be a bit pricey on this swap as packages will be over sized and may need to go to an international destination.

Send a New Years parcel to your partner. Price range is $10-$15 USD. Read your partner's profile for ideas, it is best to match what you send, with goodies they like or collect (this is sender's choice though). Pick a theme to your parcel; you could decorate for the New Year or Chinese New Year, Rabbit (as it will be the year of the Rabbit), or even a color if you like (be creative). Make sure your parcel is decorated to reflect the theme. Include a decorated letter about yourself and of course include any New Year's resolutions you have decided on! Remember, parcels need to be send out by January 31, 2011.

As long as your partner has completed the following, please mark them with a 5: -decorated the parcel in some way (stickers, stamps, drawing, etc)
-chosen a theme
-included a hand written letter minimum 2 small sheets or a full 8.5 x 11 (including New Year's resolutions)
-included goodies of value $10-15 USD (they might not be perfect to your tastes, but as long as the effort is there, give them credit). -remember this is an International swap so some parcels may take extra time to reach you, especially if large.

As always, if you especially liked your parcel, don't forget to give them a heart :) <3

I have made the send date end of January so we can avoid the holiday rush and send well thought out parcels, plus a letter also needs to be written for this one.

At smallest you should be sending an 8x6 inch envelope, or even a small sized box depending on the size of items you are sending. Make sure items are well wrapped so they arrive safely to their destination.

You may want to tell your partner what the theme is, to avoid confusion. I like to include a good selection of goodies in my swaps to increase my chances of finding something my partner really likes, but there is a difference between that and just sending all junk too. Use good judgment here and if you have questions ask. Always put your user name and the swap name on your parcels (on the outside or inside is fine).

-I am asking that everyone that signs up has completed at least 15 swaps and of those 15 at least 10 via snail mail (and at least as many ratings as swaps completed, in this case 15) -ratings should be no less than 4.8 with no unexplained ones and twos; please message me if you have ones and twos if you are joining
-please have a well filled out profile so your partner can select nice gifts for you
-newbies are welcome, but they need to meet these requirements too

I will be checking profiles and removing individuals that do not meet the requirements for this swap. Due to the price range of the swap I have had to set strict guidelines and will not be angel-ling this one.
