12-12-12 IS MY BIRTHDAY! And I want to dedicate my first swap as a coordinator for this!

I just love the number 12 and for this swap, I was inspired by the 12/12/12 Postcard Swap ( http://www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/126476 ) So I thought of making a snail mail version.

For this swap, anyone, especially those who have birthdays on the month of December are encouraged to join!

It's not a requirement that your birthday should be on the month of December!

So the details:

  • 1 Partner

  • Decorate the front of your envelope (please see your partner's profile) The size of the envie depends on you!

  • Include 3 surprises that fit in your envelope (stickers, cards, mini envies, folded stationery, fabrics, ribbon, postage stamps, etc.)

  • Theme: Write in a letter what happened on your day of 12/12/12 ♥ This means that you should be writing the letter after the day of December 12, 2012 or in the evening of the date. ♥ Tell about what happened on that day, something memorable that you've seen or experienced. You can also write down what you felt on that day. ♥ Just tell your partner anything about that day in your life. You can tell secrets, or problems, etc.

The letter has to be dated DECEMBER 12, 2012 not sent on that day. I will give enough time for you to send your mail.

This is a PENPAL SNAIL MAIL SWAP that's why the theme can be a bit personal, for the partners to get to know each other. You don't need to share secrets, if you don't want to :)

I'm making this open to newbies, but for people who have 3's and 1's, please send me a message on why you have those ratings just for clarity! Thanks!!!




I hope lots of people will join!

I love the sound of this and would love to join but I'm away between 12th and 19th so wouldn't have my stash to use. Will there be another in January? Or would you mind me setting up a similar one after this? Xx

sherwoodm 12/12/2012 #

Where do i.find my partners p0rofile?

mayuze 12/12/2012 #

sherwoodm, you go right up to 'see the partner I send to' then you get the name and address. You can click on the name and than you 'll go to the profile of your partner.

Artistic 12/14/2012 #

A 12-12-12 letter is off to my partner. Hope you'll enjoy reading about my day!

thelittledreamcatcher 12/16/2012 #

Hi guys! I moved the deadline for the swap 2 days ahead since I realized I had put the deadline on a sunday! Anyway, kudos to those who have already sent out theirs, and for those who haven't, you've got til the 19th!
