This is a newbie friendly swap. It should be extremely easy to do as long as you follow the guidelines below. Experienced swappers are also welcome.

Just choose three different things from the list below and send to your partner before the deadline.

1 unused blank notecard with envelope

10 stickers (can be a sheet, or loose, if smaller than a penny 3 stickers=1)

1 unused postcard

2 handmade or decorative envelopes (must be mailable size)

1 foreign coin or paper money

3 washi tape samples (at least 12 in. each, wrap them on a surface that the tape can be removed from, playing cards work well, or paper laminated/wrapped in packing tape)

1 bookmark

2 hot drink sachets (tea, coffee, hot chocolate, etc...please check for allergies)

A letter set (2 sheets of stationery w/ matching envelope)

5 different sheets of note/memo paper

A handmade item

4 interesting playing cards (no bicycle kind, must have a picture or design of some sort)

1 pen (can be an advertising pen, gel pen, artist pen, decorative pen)

10 used postage stamps

1 unused forever stamp

1 ATC (Artist Trading Cards, made by you or someone else!)

3 pieces of Ephemera (book pages, maps, tickets, foreign languages, ect)

1 piece of fabric at least 4x4 inches

3 - 4x6 decorative recipe cards

2 recipes on decorative recipe cards

3 scrap pieces of decorative paper (at least ATC size)

1 small gift bag

1 fridge magnet

1 sheet of at least 20 address labels with your partners address

1 souvenir from where you live (can be a map, postcard, magnet, keychain, etc..)

An easter item

A profile based gift

What to do:

Remember to include the name of the swap and your username somewhere inside the envelope! Choose three different things that are on the list and send to your partner by the deadline. They must be different - example: DO NOT send 3 bookmarks. This does not count. And no, a handmade bookmark DOES NOT count as 2 items.

This is not a profile based swap, it is senders choice, but do check your partners profile, as you may have something that your partner will love! Rate fairly, as long as you receive 3 items, and it was sent on time, rate a 5.

Newbies welcomed, with a well filled out profile. Must have logged into swapbot within 3 days of partners being assigned. No unexplained low ratings, no late swaps on dash.

I will angel only AFTER you have tried to contact your partner and have rated them a 1, but it is up to you to contact me.

If anyone would like to help angel, I would appreciate it! please comment below or message me :)

NEWBIES please read: Partners will be assigned 1 day after the last day to sign up for the swap, the first of the month. Partners are assigned using an automatic computer system. Be sure to log into swap-bot within 3 days of partners being assigned, or you will be banned from the swap, also be sure to come back after the first of the month to see whom your partner is, by clicking the See the partners you send to button.

I am not going to join at this time because I'm really busy in life but I just want to say THANK YOU from a newbie who really appreciates all the info you put into your description. It answers so many questions that I have had about the etiquette and expectations of swaps. Thank you thank you and I'll keep an eye out for other swaps you run when I am ready to participate in more than simple e-swaps!!

Ditto what mandaanne said!

These are fun to do girl, so continue on. Lots of surprises received with this swap.

spookygal 03/16/2015 #

I can't wait to start swapping. but I keep seeing "check profile" for preferences, allergies, etc.. my profile doesn't ask for that type info.. am I missing something?

Spunkisam 03/16/2015 #

@spookygal lots of people just add their own "allergies" or "dislikes". You add your own in the edit profile and title it that or just add it in the text box yourself. For instance something like ... *DISCLAIMER ALLERGIES:... Hope that helps!

myshoesdontmatch 03/16/2015 #

@spookygal go to profile-edit profile-personal then you will be able to fill in your profile, about yourself, things you would like to receive, and thats where you would list allergies or anything else your partner should know about what to and not to send. if you need help send me a message (click on my username then send message tab)
