Happy Mail

So for this swap, you will have 3 partners.

Send each partner at least 3 different goodies, and the answer to the mandatory writing prompt.



Please remember to put the name of the swap somewhere on an inserted piece of paper or even the envelope.


📝Mandatory

Writing Prompt:
💬 What is one thing you wish people would ask you about? What would you tell them?


📝Optional Writing Prompts:

💬 What is something you are really looking forward to in the next 6 months?

💬 What part of the day or night is your favorite? Why?

💬 Write about a time that you learned an important lesson.


Unrated newbies are welcome with a profile filled out and not just one or two lines.

I do check profiles before partners are assigned.

A filled profile will give an idea of your likes and dislikes; so people can get an idea of what you would enjoy receiving.

Plus it allows me as a swap coordinator the ability to see if you are active, on-time, making up swaps when life happens, and are invested in making this an amazing exchange of Happy Mail.
New rule - accounts need to be at least 6 months old and / or with at least 5 ratings.


Other goodies you could send!

Some examples of things to send but not limited to:

  • Handmade items are welcome.

  • Unused Postage Stamps

  • Note cards

  • Postcards

  • Sticker sheets

  • Bookmarks

  • Washi Tape -- yes -- that is the point of this swap.

  • Stationery Set (2 sheets and 1 envelope)

  • Envelopes (mailing and sticker holders)

  • Embellishments

  • Profile based item


Things not to send:

Mind you if you read the profile and they would love to receive these items then please do send them. -

  • random scraps of paper

  • tiny bits of lace ribbon

  • any torn bits

  • jagged edges

  • random magazine images/pages


Any item but make sure it is something you would like to receive!


If you have any questions don't be afraid to message me.

Rate your partners a 5 as long as you receive 3 different goodies and the answer to the mandatory question.


--I don't like having to say this, but I am seeing a lot of 3s and 1s going out lately when they shouldn't be. If you check the side panel - View participant, you can see when your partner says they sent things.-- From there add 8 weeks...YES, 8 weeks. The USPS has admitted to slowing down flat rate mail and upping the costs of packages. If after 8 weeks you you still haven't received anything from your partner you are more then justified in asking your partner for a resend; if that falls through for some reason, please mark the swap a 1 with note that you will rerate if you receive something. --


I can't believe I am having to add this. If I find people are rating "ones" unfairly, 3 months after the swap was sent, are noncommunicative, etc. You will no longer be welcome in my swaps.


There has been a new development that if you go and see that your partner is already MIA or just non-responsive/inactive you can message me and let me know. Because in this situation it's two fold - I don't want them in future swaps! Because that just jips you of goodies, and it lets me know to put a 6 month limit on new people and / or check on new people for responsiveness before allowing them to be in my swaps. Thank you.


I will remove those that don't fit the requirements.
