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.

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

1 unused blank notecard with envelope (blank means unused, no writing on the inside and no themes like "happy birthday", etc.)

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

1 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 or pencil (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! must be 3 1/2 in. by 2 1/2 in. in size)

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..)

A fall or halloween themed 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. Although this is a type 3 swap, flat mail IS acceptable. I know sometimes people choose to send small parcels or handmade items, so I have made this a type 3. You can mail this swap at the letter rate or parcel rate.

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 who have been a member of Swap-bot for at least 1 week and have 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. 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.
To fill in your profile: click profile, click edit profile, click the tab that says personal Well filled means there is info your partner can use like:crafts you like, things you'd like to receive, things you collect, things you dont like/allergies, a little about yourself, themes you like, etc. click on any established swappers profile for ideas.

I know this is senders choice, but please no Halloween things for me! Thanks ;)

I asked this question before, but didn't receive an answer: the swap specifies 3 items from the list so will sending more than 3 result in a lower rating? Elsewhere on Swap-bot (general guidelines or something), sending more than what was specified was discouraged. I just want to make sure I'm abiding by the rules and doing everything correctly. Thanks so much.

watching for an answer to that question.

extras are option and totally senders choice. It is always good to check your partners profile to see if they have a preference, however, you can not be downrated (rated a 1 or 3) for sending extras, as long as your swap meets the swap requirements.

Thank you so much!

I am new to the site and would wait the week to join but there is only a few days left on the last day to sign up. I am hoping I can still be included in this swap even though I'm new. I understand if not since I just found the site today.

Sender's Choice, I appreciate but please no ATCs.

allthingsregency 10/ 3/2015 #

I realize this is sender's choice, but please no halloween items for me. Thanks!

I am trying to find out why I have been banned

TereDiane1954 10/ 4/2015 #

Just a wild guess: Your response to your 3?

cayers2 10/ 4/2015 #

Does anyone know when we might be assigned our partners?

myshoesdontmatch 10/ 4/2015 #

@doodlendrawmn you failed to meet requirements on this swap last month, refused to resend and refused to work it out with your partner. That is why you were banned.

@cayers2 i am checking participants still but should be done sometime tonight.

cayers2 10/ 4/2015 #

Oh ok. Thanks!

doodlendrawmn 10/ 5/2015 #

well to resend an ATC over being 2 cm off seems unfair. Since I have received ATCs from other swappers that have been 2X3.I did not complain or rating others lower. As far as I understand we resolved the problem by accepting the 3 rating.

Brighteyes860 10/ 6/2015 #

Where do I find my partner?

cgrant 10/ 8/2015 #

it's on this page in the top right under 'see the partners you send to' @Brighteyes860
