Hiya , I was asked by wolfeagle if i would carry on hosting these swaps Internationally as she is only doing the USA now. So here it is! the INTERNATIONAL version !This is the 11th now with many more to come Easy swap. Newbies with well filled out Profiles encouraged (MUST BE WELL Filled out). I understand we all have to start somewhere and this is a great swap to do that. Send a stuffed envelope with all sorts of goodies to one partner. Please send, at least a long business size envelope that measures approximately 4 x 9 inches, however you can certainly choose to go bigger if you want. The items you send are senders choice, however it is always nice to look at your partners profile and try to send items they can use. This is not a Profile swap, so please do not spend a lot of money shopping for profile surprises. This is more for you to send items that you have on hand, that are in good usable condition. This does not mean you can send your trash, send only items in good, usable condition. Please do not send items like, like your used candy wrappers, or written on apt. card, etc. Do send items from the list below. If you are unsure of items, you can ask me. This package should weigh around 200grms when posting hence the name big fat envie .A5 size envelope or bigger!This is one of the stipulations of the swap!!!

Examples Include (but are not limited to )

Post cards,

Greeting Cards




Scrapbook papers, chipboard, etc ephemera



recipes/recipe cards

old photographs

small books

handmade items

craft supplies

teas/coffee/drink mixes

fabric scraps, sewing items

rubber stamps



Or anything else you want to share that is in good, usable condition.

PLEASE REINFORCE your envelope with tape at the seams or use a larger envelope, if you think there is a chance it will explode during mailing. You may also choose to put stuff in a baggie in case the envelope tears in transit. Have fun. No recent no sends allowed. Please rate your partner. No FLAKERS ALLOWED. Do Not Flake. I will list all flakers. I reserve the right to ban individuals.

Please do not send scraps of memo paper/notebook/post-it type paper, etc. You may send the whole memo pad or notebook but scraps of note paper does not equal scrapbook papers.

New Swappers- Profile Help: To fill out your profile, go to Profile. Then select Edit Profile. Next select Personal. You will be brought to a screen where you can fill in the sections or add your own information. Things like favorite colors, crafts you do, items you collect, hobbies, likes/dislikes, etc...all help your partner to send you items that you will like.THIS MUST BE WELL FILLED OUT BEFORE SIGNING UP....

this is International swap so if you are not prepared to mail abroad dont sign up!

im a lil' confused - it's written as an international swap yet you wrote: "You may also choose to put stuff in a baggie in case the envelope tears in transit. This is a USA only swap."

im joining - but just to make sure... :)

It looks like a large part of this was just copied and pasted from the USA version of the same swap. I'm sure she just missed that.

pichuey 06/22/2011 #

Am i eligible to join ?

Jabyohlala 06/23/2011 #

I'm new, I hope my profile is fine I try to do a good and complete profile, I really want to participate!

leegermer 07/ 7/2011 #

I don't understand how I can get into a swap when everyone I'm interested requires that I've already been in a couple swaps.

sosiejude 07/ 8/2011 #

Newbies are welcome with well filled out profile Does state that

Caromite 07/12/2011 #

Svetlaya 07/14/2011 #

leegermer 07/14/2011 #

Where do I post I sent the package? Thanks, Sheryl

Clearbrite 07/14/2011 #

G'day all. It's been a little while since I've been on Swap bot,so this one sounds great to ease back into it!:0) Can't wait!

saturner 07/15/2011 #

I have an idea. I want to know if the organizer will make sure everyone signs up for that swap has follow all the rules. I don't think we need to make a deal with our partner to be sure we are not going to receive only papers, or piece of scraps if everyone is following the rules. Please let me know, so I can sign up. Thank you

lady23 07/16/2011 #

I so hope i can be part of this :)

LavenderSprinkles 07/17/2011 #

hi are we allowed to send chocolates?

panthyrr 07/18/2011 #

@leegermer : Partners haven't been assigned on this swap yet, so you can't send it yet (now, if you're talking about other swaps, look in the upper right corner of the swap page for a small information box. One of the options will be 'Click when you have sent your package').

sosiejude 07/19/2011 #

Newbies need to have well filled out profile this could be the first swap thats fine but profile must have list llikes and dislikes.i will check before partners assigned. SATURNER.....i check all ratings and profiles before allocating partners .so if incomplete profile they will be banned.

If you have well filled out profile then yes and ratings are good or your a newbie then you will be allegible to join. Partners arent assigned till 22nd July. Please this is senders choice but it is always nice to check partners likes and dislikes before sending i think this is just nice and keeps all happy...lol.I always read profiles of swap partners no matter what the swap as you just never know you may find something they would make use of! Hopefully all questions asked have now been explained ENJOY!

sosiejude 07/21/2011 #

@leegermer ..the partners havent been assigned yet so how can you know where to send?

Newberlin 07/21/2011 #

Hi, I signed up, and filled in my profile, please let me know if there is something missing and I'll add it. :) Thanks!

Svetlaya 07/22/2011 #

Did the partners assigned? i can't find in my dashboard this swap and in watch list too, so I don't know what happened here

Svetlaya 07/22/2011 #

Gosh, I was banned! Good luck everyone

lady23 07/23/2011 #

I cant find my swap partner ? Help

Clearbrite 07/31/2011 #

My swap partner will be happy to know ive had to upsize an envelope cause even though im slowly gathering 'stuff' to send next week,i dont think what i have planned will fit into original envelope!L But that can only be a good thing! Fingers crossed i do a good enough job with the items..i always hope there will be no disappointment at the other end :0)
