Hello fellow swappers! Some of you may have seen and/or joined my previous swap--there were 35 participants, so I'm hoping this will have a nice turn out too. Who doesn't like to get goodies in the mail?? :) If this swap goes over well, I'd love to host one every month or so.

In this swap, you'll send your 1 partner a small-medium sized package with at least 5 items--feel free to send more if you'd like. It's sender's choice, but if you wanna make it special by checking your partner's profile, that'd be nice too!

Some suggestions (only suggestions! Feel free to send your own ideas) are:

~A new or gently used book

~Package/sheet of stickers

~Lip gloss/balm (or any make-up item)

~Travel/sample sized toiletries such as lotions, shampoo/conditioner, sunblock, etc

~Tea Bags (individually sealed)

~Forever Stamps with an interesting design

~Pens, pencils or markers

~Candy/snacks (keep in mind that it's warm/hot in many regions this time of year, so chocolate and some other candies may melt)

~Scratch off lotto tickets

~Notecards or Postcards

....and the list goes on...

There's no $ limit or minimum, but please try to send a package that you'd like to get...nothing in poor condition. Also, variety is good--please don't just send 5 sheets of stickers and call it a day. You can send it in a box, padded envelope, or dress it up a bit. This is America only (sorry rest of the world--it's just cheaper for us this way. Feel free to start your own international swap!).

Again--this is senders choice, but if you have any SERIOUS issues with certain items, such as allergies, please mention it in the comments.

Newbies are welcome, but you must have a 4.85 minimum rating with NO FLAKES within the past 6 months. I will be checking and banning if necessary.

You have 17 days to send this out, which I think is plenty of time to get everything packaged and to the Post Office, so please don't be late! And don't forget to factor in the July 4th holiday.

Enjoy, and happy swapping! :)

Will... There ... Be an international erosion of this swap? >.<

NurseKelly 06/14/2012 #

Magic, Sorry, but I am not planning on making one. However, as mentioned in the swap description, please feel free to start your own! :)

jinxspinx 06/20/2012 #

Please no one who smokes, Im highly allergic :( Glad to be apart of this swap!! :)

Lisandra 06/20/2012 #

no smokers for me as well,nothing with heavy perfumes also no rough or bad quality acrylic yarns or stuff made from it-my baby and i break out in hives! thanks and happy swapping! =D

aHungerArtist 06/20/2012 #

if cosmetics or toiletries, only natural-type/scented ones please!

j3ss1ca 06/20/2012 #

I can't do anything with heavy perfumes or any type of facial cosmetics. It's best if scented items like lotion, sunblock are all-natural.

I'm fairly new at this. This is my 3rd swap. When do we get assigned partners? Thanks!

j3ss1ca 06/21/2012 #

They host should be assigning partners sometime today.

j3ss1ca 06/21/2012 #


joannebrandt 06/21/2012 #

When does the hostess pick partners

MichelleD11 06/21/2012 #

Thanks for the info J3ss1ca! I look forward to swappin'.

j3ss1ca 06/22/2012 #

The partners are assigned the day after the "Last day to signup/drop". For this swap that date was the 20th. The host should have picked the partners sometime on the 21st. I'm unsure when they still have not been assigned.

Robinarie 06/22/2012 #

tap tap tap... anyone in here?

elisedawn 06/23/2012 #

I emailed the coordinator this morning, but I haven't heard anything :( Since it's a few days past when partners should have been assigned, will the send date be extended?

ReneeinPittsburgh 06/24/2012 #

I'm here! I have no allergies, but perfer products that are not tested on animals......and LOVE homemade items (all kinds). So, what is going on with this swap? It's the 24th already.

Robinarie 06/24/2012 #

anyone wanna swap?

mcovey 06/24/2012 #

I hope this happens it sounds fun if it doesn;t and someone wants do a private swap I am sure we would have alot of one that would do it but I am thinking this will disappear after a few days if partners aren;t assigned maybe someone could set up another one since there is so many that wanted to do this . Her sister is on swap-bot maybe someone can get in touch with her I can;t remember her screen name .

highteacandles 06/24/2012 #

I'm pretty sure the coordinator has a week after the sign-up date to assign the partners before the swap gets deleted.

BlueberryLady 06/24/2012 #

Coordinators have up to one week (seven days) to initiate the partner assignment process after the signup deadline. After that is done you will be sent an email letting you know that you can log into Swap-bot to see who your swap recipient(s) is. Make sure your e-mail is set up to accept messages from questionsATswap-bot.com.

If the coordinator of a swap does not assign partners within a week, the swap is automatically canceled and you will receive an email letting you know that is what happened. Found this in the Help Section....at top of site...

j3ss1ca 06/24/2012 #

I had e-mailed the coordinator on the 22nd and still haven't heard either. I would be interested if someone else sets up another one.

TheRealMissMonogram 06/25/2012 #

I would be happy to host this same exact swap with different deadlines if it gets canceled. If you have a preference on dates please let me know after the 7 days. I don't want to step on Ms. NurseKelly's toes. This would ONLY be if it is canceled within the 7 days. I know we all get busy from time to time and we just hope it is not bad news that keeps her away. We can be patient:)

ReneeinPittsburgh 06/25/2012 #

I'm open to doing a private swap with someone for the five items. I'm also up for doing TheRealMissMonogram swap. I'm a newbie so I can't host a swap, but would if I could. If anyone is up for doing a private swap send me a message on here (I check it almost daily) and let me know what you would like to recieve. Thanks. :)

NurseKelly 06/26/2012 #

I apologize- I was in a car accident. I'm going to adjust the "send by" date in order to be fair to the members

mcovey 06/26/2012 #

we are so happy you are ok and thanks for making this happen!!

MichelleD11 06/26/2012 #

So sorry. I hope you are OK. Thanks for still doing the swap despite the accident and thanks for changing the date. I hope you have a speedy recovery.

ReneeinPittsburgh 06/26/2012 #

Oh my God, are you OK NurseKelly??? I hope everything is OK with you. I am sending you healing wishes, and hugs. Hope you feel better soon!

AmookIslandCreations 06/26/2012 #

So glad you are OK! Please do not send me puffy stickers or makeup as I do not use them. I love fabric swatches, and homemade items. No purple or pink please.

j3ss1ca 06/26/2012 #

So sorry to hear about the accident. So glad to hear from you and that you are ok. :)

fawnscrafts 06/28/2012 #

I do not wear make up.

I like few candies. Lottery tickers would be torn up and trashed. without even looking to see if there is a winner.

I like papers, stickers that are not part of the profile not like things.

Tea bags , post cards, paper not cards are all fine.

I do write a lot so pens, paper and markers are fine.

Off the list you can read my profile or Pm me if you wish.

However, I would be delighted and if I cannot use it, I would send on, but still be delighted.
