Hello! :)

I thought now that the group has grown in numbers it would be lots of fun to do a second round of this swap and it would be lovely if many of you participate.

Here is how it works...

You will have 2 partners for this swap and you’ll mail them:

-A letter (handwritten as it feels more personal I think, what are your thoughts on this? if you prefer it typed please say so on the comments section for the swap)

-2 postcards of ‘’your island’’

-A little something from the area

In your letter please tell your partners a bit about yourself and also some fun and/ or insightful fact about the island you live / grew up in.

Just some examples … you might wish to tell your partners about your favorite restaurant or bookshop, a childhood memory, a tradition you are very fond of… whatever you wish! The main thing is to make your partner smile and that after reading your letter they will think ‘I feel I know more about this place now’.

For the little something from the area you could send a bookmark, a small tourism brochure of the place, some chocolate/candy, a recipe … it is sender’s choice so my only advice is please check your partner’s profile to avoid sending anything included on their dislikes’ list.

There are no specific requirements to join this swap as I know you all are honest swappers so I’m positive there won’t be any flaking on swaps.

Have fun and let’s share with one another our heritage!

P.S = Picture taken from the Internet; it shows Mayor Island (NZ)

I would prefer the letters to be handwritten please :)

I honestly don't care if it is handwritten or typed.

I do have a question though. I am an island chick living in the United States. I haven't been "back home" since I was 8. Is it all right if I give info about both my homes and only give the "little something" from Florida? Any help would be awesome!

Canariangal78 03/10/2009 #

I think that would be perfectly ok @IslandBroad Many of the island chicks (myself included) live away from home so I am pretty positive your swap partners will understand :)

I honesty like this group more and more w/ every swap.

I am easy with the handwritten or typed thing But please if handwritten make sure its legible, I recently got a swap 100 things and I could not read most of it, how disapointing.

Anyway i am in

hand written or typed, what ever my partner wants, I will be sending hand written as I have no other way available to me right now, I will be careful to make it readable

Partners have been assigned, enjoy! :)

In the very unlikely case someone does not receive their swaps I will angel those.

I don't mind getting typed or handwritten

I hope my partners don't getting a typed letter
