Hello swap-botters! :) I have hosted several swaps over the years like this one, beginning in 2009! I hope it will be a fun one for us this time :)

For this swap you must be a USA swapper, with a rating of over 4.9 to join. I reserve the right to ban people who seem likely to flake, as I will be checking all profiles carefully. If anyone does flake I will angel or find angels, but By joining you agree to send on time, as stated and rate for what you receive.

For this swap you will have FIVE partners. You will send each of the five partners one piece of mail. It can be almost ANYTHING! A postcard with a quick note, a few stickers, a bookmark, a penpal letter, some ephemera, some washi samples, a few stamped images, a homemade envie, a bookmark, a photograph you've taken...and the list goes on and on! It is entirely senders choice, so use what you've got and have fun putting together happy mail!

I said almost anything because you can not send anything vulgar, overtly offensive or obviously soliciting sales. Other than that it's fair game!! Do make sure you write your swapbot user name and the name of this swap somewhere so you can be rated. Send off your 5 things and wait to see what random fun mail you receive. Then when you receive some, rate away! If you get any piece of mail, that doesn't go against my few requirements, it will qualify for a 5! Feel free to ask any questions below :)

So let's have fun filling up our mailboxes!!

Wish Canadians could join:(

I know! I just can't afford to angel a bunch of extra envies to Canada, so for the number of partners and participants, I do this swap USA only. You are more than welcome to host an international or USA/Canada one :)

is this sender's choice or profile specific?

snailmaillover 06/30/2014 #

As stated it is "entirely senders choice." :D

But, feel free to check out your partners profiles. I usually do :D

beenebag 06/30/2014 #

Sorry. I see it's sender's choice. Was tired the first time I read it:)

snailmaillover 06/30/2014 #

Oh no problem :) I'm Glad you're interested in the swap!!

What if I offered to angel any Canadian swaps? Would you include Canadians then?

snailmaillover 07/ 1/2014 #

Since the 27 people who have signed up already did so with the understanding that it was USA only, I don't feel it would be fair to change it at this point, but I will open another swap now for USA/Canada. That way people can join either, or, or both :) I will let you know when it's posted.

RareBlue, since you are already hosting one, I just deleted the one I made. Any other Canadians: check out the one RareBlue is hosting :)

Wow this swap is getting a huge response, congrats for being in the top ten! I wonder if the fact that 2014 is in the title of the swap will it only be hosted once a year, I hope not.

snailmaillover 07/ 2/2014 #

One year when I hosted it, we had 142 people in the swap :) I do look over each swapper carefully and do angel (or find angels) if anyone flakes. I will do more this year as long as participation is good and there aren't many problems :)

snailmaillover 07/ 4/2014 #

I'm sorry sbraggia7, you must be a rated swapper to join this swap. I'll let you know when I host another one though :D Welcome to Swap-bot!

Finished stalking my partners, got a list of things to keep an eye out for this week. I cannot wait to send off my packages.... I mean, letters. Whatever. =)

I hope you offer this swap again with USA and Canada. So far it's been so much fun getting stuff in the mail! Thank you leave comment

snailmaillover 07/16/2014 #

Thanks again everyone for joining this swap! I have sent out reminder messages to the few participants who have not marked "sent" yet, also please remember to rate when you receive your mail :) Thanks for swapping and as always, let me know if there are any concerns!

Wanted you to know that I sent out RESEND to @tammielynn1969 USPS Priority Mail with tracking #, she should receive my resend by Saturday. I will be checking USPS website for tracking # to make sure she received my swap.
It saddened me that she couldn't remember my swap, I fear she never received my swap so I did a resend to her. Now we will know for sure she received my swap. And I hope she likes what I sent to her, also I hope she will rate me fairly for this swap. - Kathy
