If you are considering joining this swap, please read the entire description!

Due to the popularity of this swap, please expect a slight delay between the swap signup deadline and partners getting assigned. I will be checking EVERY single profile. :)

This is a super duper simple fun swap! You will be sending your partner all of the following:

  • One sealed tea bag, any flavor Read partner's profile for allergies, and have allergies listed on yours.

  • An introductory letter, at least two pages on a5 or larger paper (5"x8") Please explain why you chose to add the tea that you did.

  • small profile surprise (a couple of postcards, an unused notecard, ATC papers, stickers, some recipes, a small letterset, etc. Read your partner's profile for what they like!)

All of those items must be sent in a pretty envelope! Decorate it with washi/deco tape, hand make the envie, doodle on it, etc. You don't have to go TOO crazy, just add some color! Please keep your envie between one to two ounces. No more (due to postage costs), and no less to be fair!

IMPORTANT : The intention of this swap is to meet new people and potentially become pen pals! Please tell your partner if you're not looking for pen pals in your letter! This helps us save postage! :)

Now the not so fun, but equally as important part . This swap is newbie friendly and anyone with a 4.98+ rating may join! No recently unexplained ones or threes in the last few months. Also, remember to communicate . If you know that you are going to be sending late, send a message to both your partner and I. Both of us will probably be understanding. Don't leave a negative rating without trying to get in contact with your partner, and be sure to rate a five if you receive the requirements above in a reasonable time. If you don't get a rating from your partner after attempting contact, please send me a PM because any non raters also get banned from any of my future swaps.

Ask any questions you may have below, and I'll get to them asap! Someone may host a regional version if they'd like to. Let's have a drama free, fun swap! :)

PLEASE USE A SCALE WHEN MEASURING YOUR HAPPY MAIL!!! You'd be surprised as to what you can fit in an ounce!

hi there, i'm interested in this swap, but don't have a scale-- would that be a problem?

thanks, veda

CraftyFairy, your local post office should have one that you can use when shipping out your mail. ^^

I am so excited for this swap! :)

MuhBerriez 11/ 8/2014 #

Oh wow! :D It will take a little bit to check everyone's profile before assigning partners so please be patient come the 14th. :)

Hi, my future swap partner! I know this says "any flavor" teabag, but I humbly ask you NOT to send a teabag containing kiwi fruit, because even the presence of kiwi fruit leads to an anaphylactic reaction (=I can not breathe and, well, I will die if I don't get epinephrine aka adrenaline shot and cortisone asap. I do have them at home, but I really hate the anaphylactic reactions). I'm sorry for the inconvenience! Please read my other allergies, I just wanted to mention kiwis because it's the most severe fruit allergy. Thank you!

MuhBerriez 11/ 8/2014 #

Thanks for bringing that up OGIMAQTpie. (Just got your username LOL! :) ) I updated the information. Please read your partner's profile for allergies!!

Is it okay to use smaller paper if we add extra pages?

Abrow1 11/12/2014 #

How I wish this was USA only swap... The overseas postage is killing me... This sounds like a super fabulous swap.

schaefchen87 11/17/2014 #

When will the partners be assigned ?

meganporter789 11/17/2014 #

Is the letter typed or handwritten?

MuhBerriez 11/20/2014 #

Preferably handwritten. If typed, please don't just use plain white computer paper- add some color!
