I was involved in this swap years ago and I STILL have some of the notes tacked to my bulletin board. And so, I figured I'd run another one. This was another swapper's idea initially but since she's no longer in the community I can't ask her permission to run it.

We will buy a jar or even better, repurpose a jar. We can decorate it, or not. Frankly, if you don't want to put your notes in a jar that's fine as well. My intent is to fill up my one jar with notes from all 4 of the swaps. But again, the jar isn't actually part of the swap.

The swap is to cut 10 strips of paper (preferably plain printer paper or at least a paper that is easy to read) and easily foldable for our jars. On each of those pieces of paper you will write something happy, encouraging, thoughtful, etc. It can be a quote. It can be a tasteful joke. It can be personal note. And yes, it can be handwritten or typed.

You will do this 5 times as you will have 5 partners.

When you receive your strips, fold them and put them into your jar without reading them. When you need a moment of happiness, you will have several to go to.

I will be setting up 4 of these as I'd like to have enough to last me for the rest of 2021. Sign up for as few or as many as you'd like. However, I DO ask that you use different happy thoughts for each swap. Also, be sure to include a note with the name of the swap and your user name.

This is a low cost swap so I will be opening it up for Newbies. However, for those people who have ratings there are 2 requirements:
- You cannot have any unexplained 1s or 3s from the past year.
- You need to have signed into Swapbot within a few days prior to the partner assignment.

I will angel as necessary as long as enough time has passed since the deadline AND you have rated your partner a 1.
