Easy swap. Newbies with filled out Profiles encouraged. I understand we all have to start somewhere and this is a great swap to do that. Send a stuffed envelope with assorted goodies to one partner. Please send, at least a long business size envelope that measures approximately 4 x 9 inches, however you can certainly choose to go bigger if you want to. There is no minimum or maximum number of items to send, just make sure your envelope is stuffed full. The items you send are SENDER'S CHOICE. This is not a Profile swap, so please do not spend a lot of money shopping for profile surprises. This is more for you to send items that you have on hand, that are in good usable condition. This does not mean you can send your trash, send only items in good, usable condition. Please do not send items like, your used candy wrappers, or written on apt. card, or loose memo papers or post it scraps, etc. Do send items from the list below. If you are unsure of items, you can ask me. Examples Include (but are not limited to )

Post cards,

Greeting Cards




Scrapbook papers, chipboard, etc ephemera


game pieces

altered art supplies


recipes/recipe cards

old photographs

small books

handmade items

craft supplies

teas/coffee/drink mixes

fabric scraps, sewing items

ribbons, yarns

rubber stamps or stamped images



Or anything else you want to share that is in good, usable condition.

PLEASE REINFORCE your envelope with tape at the seams or use a larger envelope, if you think there is a chance it will explode during mailing. You may also choose to put stuff in a baggie in case the envelope tears in transit. This is a USA only swap. Have fun. No recent no sends allowed. Please rate your partner. No FLAKERS ALLOWED. Do Not Flake. I will list all flakers. I reserve the right to ban individuals.

Please do not send individual scraps of memo paper/notebook/post-it type paper, etc. You may send the whole memo pad or notebook but scraps of note paper does not equal scrapbook papers.

New Swappers- Profile Help: To fill out your profile, go to Profile. Then select Edit Profile. Next select Personal. You will be brought to a screen where you can fill in the sections or add your own information. Things like favorite colors, crafts you do, items you collect, hobbies, likes/dislikes, etc...all help us get to know you and it helps your partner to send you items that you will like or that you can use.

USA Only. No recent unexplained low ratings.

Is this USA or International?

JudalineZ 02/ 6/2013 #

I think it says international.

EllieChu 02/ 6/2013 #

I appreciate you doing a swap for newbies, especially one that sounds like a lot of fun! :D

moonlightlaura 02/ 6/2013 #

You state in your description that this is a USA only swap but u have it set for International. People who are not from the USA will sign up until it is changed and you will have to go through the list that you have now to make sure swappers that are not in the USA are removed

JudalineZ 02/ 7/2013 #

I see it did say USA. I am sure that the host can re-edit the location.

wolfeagle 02/ 7/2013 #

Yes, It is USA only and I always check for location when I review profiles. ;D Thanks you all.

WESTTXGIRL 02/13/2013 #

Yaaaay! Looking forward to this--I love surprises and especially appreciate that it's USA only, as postage can get crazy!

Hello all!! I am new to this forum and this is my very first swap. I am really excited to try it out!! I am going to start on my package this weekend!

wolfeagle 02/15/2013 #

@haightashbury I dropped you because of your recent 1s ratings, so until those are fixed you would not be able to join. You should have received the email notice from swapbot.

smadronia 02/16/2013 #

I sat down and prepared my envelope tonight. This is fun, there's a few things I received in swaps that I like, but I wouldn't use, so I was able to pass them along. Hopefully my swap partner likes things like picture frames and small blank books :)

Joshcoop 02/17/2013 #

@smadronia You squeezed picture frames and blank books into a 4 x 9 envelope?? lol

streetjewel 02/18/2013 #

Perfect!Just one thing - we can`t send cds,dvds.. Not allowed by the rules of this web site)

smadronia 02/18/2013 #

@streetjewel Actually, you can. As long as they're not copies, but original movies and CDs can be swapped.

smadronia 02/18/2013 #

@joshcoop the envelope I used was 6x9, but yes. Small picture frame, small blank book :)

menudolvr 02/19/2013 #

This will be my first time at doing this. I'm excited and can't wait to get started. :)

Ellena22 02/20/2013 #

It says you can use envelope larger than 6x9!!!

menudolvr 02/20/2013 #

I'm so excited for this. I have my envelope ready to go! :) Cannot wait to get my person. I'd never even heard of these sites until a couple days ago when a pen-pal told me about it.

Ellena22 02/21/2013 #

My first too menudolvr...I was in another swap that got canceled, so I'm getting a little discouraged...Hope this swap goes better!!!

moonlightlaura 02/22/2013 #

My envelope is stuffed to the brim! I included a bunch of new stuff that I don't use...hope my partner likes their package!! :)

khstarr10 02/22/2013 #

TheWhiteSquirrel 02/25/2013 #

I'm new....so, just eondering how/when we find out who our swap partner is -? (I might be jumping the gun -just excited for my first swap!! :D) hee hee

pinkstrawberryz 02/25/2013 #

I was wondering the same! :)

MyHeartBelongsToSnailMail 02/25/2013 #

I was wondering too, when/how we find out who out swap partners are? I received the email saying I was officially signed up for the swap but haven't heard anything else. I apoligize if I'm jumping the gun as well. Just excited....can't contain myself excited =D

wolfeagle 02/25/2013 #

In general a host has 7 days to review each profile and drop anyone that's needed. I am reviewing profiles today and partners should be assigned later today. You will receive an email sayings partners have been assigned or you can check back later today. :) Have fun and if you have any questions, just send me a PM.

Bizzitybam 02/25/2013 #

@wolfeagle THANK YOU for taking the time to go through all of those profiles! 135 is a hefty number :)

wolfeagle 02/25/2013 #

If you are one of the 22 people who were dropped, please understand that if you "fix" whatever the problem was, you are welcome in the next round. Each person should get an email that explains why they were dropped. Thank you.

Ellena22 02/25/2013 #

Thanks for picking our partners so fast. The last swap I was in took a week, just to find out it was canceled!!! You rock wolfeagle!!!

MauiMami 02/25/2013 #

My first swap! Im so excited! I wonder how many fun things I can fit into an envelope! Mahalo wolfeagle for making this all so easy and fun!

silentjfry 02/25/2013 #

I'm so bummed that I missed this! I thought I had signed up but I set it for watching instead.. : (

MyHeartBelongsToSnailMail 02/26/2013 #

@Silentjfry If you would like to do a private swap similar to this one, I'm up for it! Just PM me if you're interested! At least that way you would get to enjoy the swap too!

menudolvr 02/27/2013 #

I finally got mine sent today. I've had my mom in the hospital so things didn't go as fast I wanted. Is there a place where I can send the confirmation # for tracking?

I got my first ever envie and it was perfect! It made my day. Thanks so much @violetfaye

moonlightlaura 03/10/2013 #

What is with all the late senders? You had 2 weeks to get your packages out! I am only saying something because the person who is supposed to send to me hasn't even marked their item sent yet...

TC 03/14/2013 #

One of your late senders, @smashinSusan , consistently sends weeks or even months late. Why she doesn't get rated with 3s is a mystery.

kromo 03/15/2013 #

Just looked and my partner @nursekelly sent today. Never contacted me.

wolfeagle 03/16/2013 #

I recommend rating appropriately.

wolfeagle 03/18/2013 #

Everyone has sent. Thank you all for another great swap.
