A new tote it will be, if you join the Send me a Tote & a Note #3! The previous ones have been so fun and have a lot of requests to make it a series. So are you along for the ride?

This swap is so simple, and since so many of you asked for this again, I set up round two. Remember, ** Simply a Tote & a Note**

Let's work together to get rid our world of those nasty plastic bags one swap at a time. Your totes can range as low as $1.00 to $5.00 but really should be any more than that.

Totes can be handmade or store bought I have seen some beautiful handmade totes and strong great store totes. It is up to you for your region and what you have available. Have fun with it.

They are available in plastic, synthetic plastic, denim, and canvas. You can buy them at any store, I have seen them at Michaels, Target, TJ Maxx, Nugget Supermarket, Trader Joes, and each of them is adorable. They are available at musuems, parks, and so on.

I am off to explore a special find this weekend for my partner.........so hurry and sign up. Write your partner a simple note sharing something fun and off you go to the postal office.

Newbies welcome; however, if you have any recent ones and threes, please pm me to discuss. I will angel ones that are dropped after researching it.

Hope to see you all on board and let's work together to save our environment. One swap at a time.

Great - hope you join in these are wonderful swaps.

Momskii 04/ 1/2011 #

These are great, I have gotten some wonderful totes. Looking forward to seeing the next one.

1Scrapper 04/ 9/2011 #

Oh so glad. I do love them and they truly are wonderful to use. You can't have enough as they do wear out over time and I use them instead of the paper and plastic.

Hello... its my first time to join this... does it matter if the tote bag is a commercial or company freebie? or it should be something different?

1Scrapper 04/ 9/2011 #

I don't think that it would as long as it is something you would want to use. I know that I get a lot of promotional type bags that have our law enforcement logo on them and folks like to get that type of stuff.

Thanks, Linda

On my watch :)

@1Scrapper law enforcement logo tote? Wow, I would love to have you as a partner :D

SundaysChild1966 04/14/2011 #

Signed up! Just today I rec'd my tote from the last swap and it's gorgeous - little koalas. I'm going to be the show-off at the supermarket this week. LOL

heather1971 04/14/2011 #

These have been my favorite swaps so far! I LOVE the 2 totes I've already received!!! What a fabulous idea!

snpyrunner 04/14/2011 #

can we make our tote? i make them often and they have sturdy handles. just wondering!

quiltncat 04/14/2011 #

Same question as snpy above - does this have to be a purchased tote? I recycle used fabric into well-made grocery totes and much prefer these to the store-bought ones, which often fall apart quickly.

camelsamba 04/14/2011 #

Do they have to be the grocery bag size, or can it be more like the stereotypical tote bag (skinny at the bottom)? I have some really nice stenciled canvas totes that I won in a silent auction (along with something else I was really bidding on).

ItschyKitschy 04/15/2011 #

Yay! The tote I received last time was so amazing. People that can sew are like magicians. ha!

widelo123 04/15/2011 #

I am new to the swaps. Can you please tell me what recent ones and threes mean?

1Scrapper 04/16/2011 #

Hello all - sorry I have been on in several days - I got a nasty virus on both my desktop and laptop. Don't ever go to Youtube!

Now, the tote can be homemade as I have received beautiful handmade totes. Loved them both!!!!! I agree w/you Itschykitchy they are complete magicians. I do a good job but not on the scale of the one I received!

1Scrapper 04/16/2011 #

Widelo=123, ones and threes - well these not good to have. Swappers get a one if they don't send anything and/or if it completely doesn't match the swap guidelines. Threes are if something is terribly late and/or doesn't meet the swap guidelines completely. A good thing to review is at the bottom of your swapbot home page, under help - new user info.

Maggiesmother 04/16/2011 #

I love these swaps. I have received great totes for each one. Thanks for hosting these swaps.

1Scrapper 04/19/2011 #

Thanks and hope you all enjoy this one. There are some incrediable bags out there.

blonde998 04/19/2011 #

I have had a great time with the other 2 swaps, so I have to join in this one!! :-)

Justene 04/20/2011 #

This sounds like a great swap...I'm in! :)

1Scrapper 04/21/2011 #

Glad you are all on board! This is going to be a great one. I am still searching for that special bag for my partner and have made a couple of cards to go in it for them too.

Have fun everyone!

1Scrapper 04/22/2011 #

Welcome back Blonde998 - I am having fun with these swaps and the fact that you get a unique one each time,

chrisnchoc 04/22/2011 #

Hi guys! i see that i have 1 partner assigned to me.. but how do i know who he/she is?

craftybeaner 04/22/2011 #

wow this is a huge swap! Hopefully I will get my bag this time =D

MurphyPagan 04/23/2011 #

Already made my tote, waiting for the date.

bruxbaby 04/23/2011 #

I'm in! I bought a few cute shopping totes last year when someone claimed to be doing a series on this. I was so disappointed to see it fall through. Thanks for doing this! I hope I get one of those lovely handmade bags. :)

1Scrapper 04/23/2011 #

Please note that I do stand behind my swaps and will angel those not received. Myself and another gal angeled on the last swap 15 bags total. If you do not get your bag on time, I need to know or cannot help you out nor can I reportit properly either.

Please keep in touch with me if you have troubles. And just for information, it wasn't the newbies we had trouble with. Hopefullly, raising the rating restrictions, all totes will get out to their partner.

Hugs, Linda

i found some adorable totes in the purse section at walmart for $5.00. i think they had 7 different patterned ones.

MizzKodak 04/26/2011 #

Since I am new to swap bot, can anyone please tell me, where do we post pics of the items received?

1Scrapper 04/26/2011 #

Thanks LaLuna - I will put that one in my follow on swap that I am posting tonight - see you all in Send me a Tote and Note #4. Please pm me if you have any troubles with sending your tote.

Hugs, Linda

MizzKodak 04/26/2011 #

MizzKodak 04/26/2011 #

Artistic 05/ 4/2011 #

A package went out today to my partner in Ireland. It's coming from the U.S. Enjoy!

MizzKodak 05/13/2011 #

I love this swap and this site. I was one day late sending and that is not one of my usual habits. Had everything ready to go yesterday and had to take my dad to the hospital ( and they did nothing for him anyway).

raebeth 05/14/2011 #

Sent yesterday, didn't update. Its on its way, though!!!

dalbright 07/ 6/2011 #

FYI: Shirley Tan (MOMO) did not send her swap.
