QUICK! Take 10 seconds to think of as many PINK things as possible!

All done? This was just a warm up but you're already nearly halfway done with this swap! Might as well join in and complete it... :)

To finish, all you have to do is: 1. create a note (a letter or a notecard works), 2. find (or make) an envelope, and 3. include at least TWO items or goodies of your choice to send to your swap partner.

The only catch and requirement is that everything should be mainly PINK in color. Magenta, coral, baby pink..it is all good! Make things, decorate, wrap and washi like crazy--how PINK can you go?

Does this mean there can't be any other colors? Not at all! Let your creative juices flow! The point is that your partner sees your envelope in their mailbox and says, "This is totally from that PINK-themed swap." And then they do a Happy Dance. :)

You'll need at least a 4.85 rating to play. Newbies and non-rated people with detailed profiles may join. I'll sift through and boot non-compliant people..not because I don't like you, but because I want a positive experience as much as possible.

I'm HAPPY to report that we had 100% participation and all sent swaps in my last Color Call swap. Woot! :)

Join in, have fun, and hopefully people decide to go above and beyond to maybe earn a Heart! Cheers!

How much should these 2 items cost? Or any ideas what to send? I'm not sure if, for example a sheet of stickers counts as an item, or I should rather send something "bigger"?

lawchick 05/28/2016 #

Hi @Sakura377 I originally put ideas but erased them only because I didn't want people to feel like they weren't allowed to go beyond the list. A sheet of stickers would certainly qualify. I think in my prior Color swap most people chose flat items. Other ideas: note card, postcard, a few journaling sheets, a couple individually wrapped tea bags, bookmarks, ATC, a homemade zine, fridge magnet, embellishment, shaped paper clips, small notepad.. Hope this helps! :)

4.85 is kinda low. Will you angel? Maybe take a look at this ratings math

lawchick 05/28/2016 #

@thebeagal Yes I'll angel after a 1 rating. Last time I ran this swap at the same level and everyone participated, no flakers out of 48 people. :) I'm still reserving the right to boot anyone who is sketchy and that worked well. Thanks for the question! :)

lawchick 05/28/2016 #

@thebragal .had a typo in your name, sorry. Response is above.

Hi, english is not my native language, so sorry if my question seems silly. Letter and envelope should be send as "New" item so my partner can use it or this will be used by me as stationery for the swap? Sorry if it' sa stupid question, but I just want to be sure and do it well :)


lawchick 06/ 3/2016 #

@beatrice There are no stupid questions. :). Letter and envelope are your stationery for the swap. Send two new pink items with them. Hope this helps! :)

Beatrice 06/ 8/2016 #

@lawchick Thank you so much

bbbhill6 06/ 8/2016 #

I'm sorry that I'm not understanding the whole swap. You put a letter or a note along with two items that are pink. Does the letter or Note have to be pink and does the envelope need to be homemade and again sorry for not understanding everything. Thank You

lawchick 06/ 8/2016 #

Everything needs to be pink. Envelope does not need to be homemade..if not homemade it should be decorated.. it should also be pink. I hope this helps, @bbbhill6 ..let me know if you need more clarification. :)

bbbhill6 06/ 8/2016 #

Yes it does. I think have a cute pink blank greeting card were I can write a little note. I'll definitely be signing up for this swap thank you for clarifying

lawchick 06/ 8/2016 #

@bbbhill6 Your notecard sounds perfect and I'm happy to hear you'll be joining! :)

Hello! I'm completely new to Swap Bot and was wondering if I could join this swap (would be my first). I've just finished editing my profile. :)

lawchick 06/11/2016 #

@sgtpickles Your profile is nice and complete. You're good to sign up! Please follow through, be on time and Have Fun! :) I think you'll get hooked on swap-not..it's great! :)

So excited for this swap! Is it okay if we send profile-based extras (that aren't necessarily pink) as long as we enclose the two pink items?

lawchick 06/29/2016 #

I take pride in replying quickly to comments and, Dear @goldfinchmeadowlark I totally failed you! I hope you were able to put together a mailing that made you happy. :) Profile-based non-pink would have been totally fine.
