For this swap you will send (at least) one new or established deco to one partner.

Some guidelines:
* You can send one or more additional decos as extras, but this is not required. If you are sending extra decos you may include a homer. However, at least one deco sent needs to NOT be a homer. * The person the deco is for (who it will return to) should be clearly noted somewhere on the deco.
* Don't send your partner a deco they've already had, or one FOR them.
* A deco should have a nice cover.
* Theme is sender's choice.
* Newbies are allowed with filled out profiles.

I believe no one should host swaps they aren't willing to angel themselves. I will angel if necessary, but I screen participants to minimize the risk of flakers getting in. I will remove participants with poor ratings, open swaps, drama, comments, or other swapping history that concerns me at my discretion. If you have negative swapping history and want to participate, please proactively PM me to explain. Otherwise, I may ban you with no notice if I am suspicious.

Because of delivery issues, multi-profiler/flaker concerns, and site policies I require real names. If you join a swap of mine with a fake name, you will be asked to fix it.

This swap is U.S. only on account of postage costs. If you want an international version, feel free to host your own. :)

According to the Swap-Bot Glossary: A deco is similar to a friendship book and there are a wide variety of types. It is a bound book of pages which are sent around the world. The person that the book is “for” is usually listed on the cover and when the book becomes full it is sent back to them. Each person that receives and signs the deco will decorate one page according to the theme of the booklet (if there is one) and put their postal/email address and sign their name. Typically, each entrant in the “deco” must use one full page to express themselves. Glitter, sequins, feathers and other scrapbooking supplies are frequently used in “decos.” Despite the artistic expressions used in these types of friendship books, the basic rules of passing the friendship book to person to person is the same.

If you are new to decos, I can try and explain them better. I suggest PMing or commenting on my profile to get my attention faster, I forget to check swap page comments as often as I should!

What is a "fake" name?

Hell0Z0mbie 12/ 7/2014 #

Like when people use aliases in the name fields of their profile information. Something like "Princess Cupcake" as their first and last name.

What does homer mean

institches 12/20/2014 #

@Winterangel - a "homer" is a book with only 1 page left to deco, then it's sent home to the person it was made for. So if I sent you a Deco with only one page left, you would deco it and then send home....thus a "homer".
