Send A Smile! #10 USA Only

EDITED!! 10-2-14

I am editing to reiterate the "send a smile" aspect of the swap. I have had complaints from previous participants that the swaps they have received have been ripped open with contents falling out do to improper packaging. Also that their partners are not even checking profiles. PLEASE send something your partner will LIKE! The object is to SEND A SMILE!! You want your partner to be excited and happy, not disappointed and feeling let down.

The senders choice aspect is not an excuse to send junk or crap! It means YOU get to choose what to send to bring a smile to their face. This is not meant to be an "expensive swap" but if you don't have anything to send, you might need to get some supplies to have on hand. I understand that not everyone likes the same things, but you can make an effort to make your partner happy. A little time and thought can go a long way!

Hope these changes insures the upcoming swap fun for all participants!

This swap is going to a weekly swap. If you don't have time to send on time, there will be another swap very soon!

I have seen a few swaps somewhat similar to this, but haven't seen one recently, so I created one.

This is a very easy and inexpensive swap. Newbie Friendly.

  • 1 One Partner

  • Send at least 3 different items, as close to 1 oz of flat items. This means it will cost 1 Forever Stamp to ship. You can send more, but one stamp is all that the swap requires.

  • Send your items in a Decorated envelope, (handmade, rubber stamped, stickers, doodled, washi tape, colorful writing, ect.) send something besides a plain envelope!

  • Senders Choice. This is senders choice, but you might have items your partner will love! Its always recommended to check your partners profile, try to send items they can use.

  • Send on time. Don't wait till the last minute to send. If you want to "send a smile" don't make your partner worry that you have forgotten about them.

You are trying to make your partner smile! Put some time and thought into it! :)

Suggestions of what you can send....

  • Postcards
  • Note cards
  • ATCs (Artist Trading Cards)
  • Project Life Cards
  • Stationery
  • Recipes
  • Smash book items
  • Ephemera (book pages, maps, tickets, foreign languages,ect)
  • Used Postage Stamps, Or New :)
  • Washi Tape
  • Ribbons
  • Stickers
  • Stamped images
  • Die-cuts
  • Rub-ons

Don't send a envie with just 3 stickers, that will NOT make your partner smile. The items must be different, you can send stickers, and a postcard, and some washi tape. Mix it up, send a variety, send something to your partner, so that if you received it in the mail, it would make you smile!

The list is endless, you can send any flat items that you think your partner will like! When partners are assigned, check their profile for ideas!

3-D, or thicker items may require additional postage. Make sure it has the proper postage, and the envie is reinforced, if needed, so it can survive the trip.

Please don't send items that are dirty, torn or trash. Some people can be creative with all sorts of random items, don't rate down if you don't like the items, simply send them out in another swap. This is NOT an excuse to send junk. Send items that you think your partner can use!

This swap will be open to swappers with at least 4.98 or higher. Newbies welcome with a well filled out profile. I do check, You will be removed if you haven't filled it out before the swap closes. No unexplained 1s or 3s. I will angel if required, but flakers will not be allowed in any of my future swaps.

If you receive a decorated envie on time, with at least 3 different items, you should rate a 5. Hearts are always optional. Please play nice.

If you have any questions, please post them below or send me a message. Have fun and happy swapping!

The squirrel is adorable and a butterball at that. Love it!!!

LoveToCraftInAZ 11/29/2014 #

Lololol....I feed them lots of carbs! I also leave out peanuts still in the shell. I thought they would eat them all, but then I started finding them stashed all over the yard! Silly little critters!

LoveToCraftInAZ 12/ 5/2014 #

Lolo.....you're welcome. Happy that you all like them. I will keep posting them. Obviously they don't mind...haha:)

That is a little butterball squirrel!!! So cute!

LoveToCraftInAZ 12/ 8/2014 #

I do love feeding them! :)

It's so funny... You feed a cute Squirrel, and I have a nightly visitor that's a stinky cute Skunk! :) Fell in love with the neighborhood skunks the night two adults and three babies came to my back patio eating up all the cat food I leave for my stray. I have never seen a cuter wild baby than those little Skunkies!

LoveToCraftInAZ 12/10/2014 #

Awwww...how cute! I am sure skunk babies are adorable. Over the summer we went camping in the Mts. We woke up in the middle of the night to rummaging. A skunk had managed to get into the trash. There wasn't any food for him, but the empty can of corn was obviously yummy smelling. He put his head in there and got it stuck. He was waving it all around trying to get it off. We wanted to help, but kept our distance. He figured it out, and hung around camp for 20 mins or so, left without leaving a scent..thank goodness. But he was super cute. I wouldn't mind one as a pet, if they didn't smell so bad...

I wondered where my squirrels went ~ You must have better goodies than I do! Haha! Your deck looks just like mine, complete with leaves all over it.

I am so excited about this swap...anyone else????

MsKuky 12/14/2014 #

I'm always excited aboyt this swap, I've been following it since I joined Swap Bot back in late September & I love it! LoveToCraftInAZ you're gonna have to make the furry friends "sweat to the oldies"... ;)

LoveToCraftInAZ 12/15/2014 #

I just put out whatever stale bread I have. Never anything sugary as I don't want to get them all hyper! I already watch them chase each other up and down the trees. I have several and they don't like sharing. I worry about them when its cold and rainy. I stay warmer when I have "extra" weight on ...haha...when spring hits, I will be less generous...haha. I see them out in the yard digging up and burying acorns...they are fun!

Glad you all like this swap. I will be taking a break hosting it till after the first of the year. Happy Holidays to everyone!

I love squirrels as well. We have 3 types, black, tan & huge red ones that are very docile. I love your swaps. Thanks. Merry Christmas.

LoveToCraftInAZ 12/27/2014 #

I think we have the red ones and grey. They are fun to watch.

I am happy you like my swaps. I am taking a short break and will have them back up in the new year. Merry Christmas to you as well.
