Hi there!

In this swap, we will be challenging each other. This swap will be repeated every month. You will have two partners. You will be sending your partner an envelope with a postcard and some goodies, which is only allowed to be opened after completing a challenge.

This swap will go as follows:

  1. Pick a postcard your partner will like. Please use high-quality postcards with at least a value of €1,- ($1,15). These have to be branded postcards, so no tourist or dollar store postcards. It should be a postcard that will make your partner very happy.

  2. Decorate the postcard and write a little note to your partner (on the postcard as well). Put the postcard into an envelope and include some goodies like stickers, bookmark, tea, washi samples. Just a little something to make your partner happy. You should be able to send the envelope for the price of a normal letter. You don't have to write the address on the postcard since this will be on the envelope.

  3. On the envelope, you will write the address of your partner, the swap name and your user name. Please decorate the envelope as well. And you will also include a challenge for your partner. Your partner is only allowed to open the envelope AFTER they have completed the challenge. Write the challenge on the envelope as well. An example would be 'Open this envelope after your have cycled for at least one hour' or 'Open the envelope after you bought some flowers for yourself'. Really anything that you think will be a fun challenge for your partner. Please check their profile! Also, please make sure the challenge is doable within a month or two! Please don't ask your partner to do something that might be dangerous, scary or crazy!

  4. When you receive your envelope you will rate your partner a 5. After completing the challenge and opening your envelope you will finish the rating. If, for any reason, the challenge is impossible for you, please ask your partner to give you a new challenge. If your partner has made a strange request please contact me so I can block them from any future swaps.

Good luck, everyone! And Happy Swapping!

What a fun swap idea! But as post is still not moving to all countries, I must wait and see..

@Catida Thank you! Hopefully, you will be able to join this round, otherwise see you in next rounds! :)

@Catida I have changed the date of the swap (2 weeks later) because I have noticed a lot of people watching the swap, but not joining yet. Maybe this helps :)

homemade allowed?

DakotaSkye93 08/10/2020 #

@IK1452009 You will have to use a store-bought postcard, as mentioned in the description. But feel free to add something homemade to the envelope as a goodie.

I have changed the sign-up date because unfortunately we don't have enough people to start the swap. Hopefully you will all be able to join later :)
