Time to fill our mailboxes!

You will have 20 partners for this swap. For each partner, prepare an envelope stuffed with goodies. Although there is no required envelope size, you are only required to send using one stamp (nothing huge). It is your choice on what to send and how much to send. Just make sure it is worth your partner's swap.

Idea's on what to send: -bookmarks -stationary -postcards -random craft supplies -fabric -ribbons -washi tape samples -new or used stamps -stickers -note cards -scrap-booking items -profile based items

You can send anything you want; the sky is the limit. However, please make sure anything you send is in good condition. Also, make sure you have enough items to send several things to 20 people. Include your swap profile name and the name of the swap.

Have fun!

PS. Check your postage. A lot of people have gotten their envelopes returned or delivered needing more postage. Be mindful of how much you need to put on.

20 Partners WOW!

@ladydy5 I've done a couple of these and they are a lot of fun. This one is on my watchlist.

Wow not even 20 people in swap....

Fenix825 12/18/2017 #

@cbr It's still 1 month til the swap sign up deadline. I know I gave it on my watchlist. A lot of time people won't sign up for something so far in advance (I know for me personally I wait for big swaps like this in case something happens, I'd hate to not be able to fulfill my swap).

Definitely watching!

FrostedPeppermintLolita 12/19/2017 #

I'm closely watching, and will very likely sign up. :)

I just joined this site! :) I do tons of swaps in Facebook groups so I thought I'd give this a try now. Can someone explain how the rating system works? I'd like to join in but it says I don't meet a rating requirement. :/ Thanks!

Bhindblueeyes 12/26/2017 #

@unexpectedangel When your swaps are received, partners will give you a rating. The entire rating system is in the FAQ here

These are super super fun!

Not sure I’m ready for another just yet. Kind of went all out on the last round :)

Can someone give me an idea of how many items and what types of items people send? I want to get started now :)

ladyaduial 01/ 4/2018 #

@rottifan4 I would say most people send between 5-10 flat items in an envelope. I like to get my envelopes out and randomly put a stack of things in each. If I'm not pressed for time, I then add something profile based for each person. People literally send anything and everything; that's the beauty of this swap.

rottifan4 01/ 4/2018 #

@ladyaduial thanks so much for responding to me. I want to see how many envelopes I can put together first before I sign up.

ladyaduial 01/ 5/2018 #

@rottifan4 I'd say as long as you can do between 3-5 things in an envelope you should sign up. It's a lot of fun.

03Scarlett 01/ 7/2018 #

Shouldn't this be a Type 3 swap considering that there are 20 partners? I would think it should be! [Just a thought is all.] : )

armi27 01/ 7/2018 #

By entering you have to send to 20 ppl?

AZmom875 01/ 8/2018 #

@rottifan4 I send postcards, and tea, and bookmarks and punched craft items like snowflakes, cats, roosters, journaling cards. ribbon, washi tapes. I base what I send on the persons profile.

I hope this helps.

ladyaduial 01/ 8/2018 #

@armi27 Yes, you will be assigned 20 partners to send an envelope to.

rottifan4 01/ 8/2018 #

Thanks everyone for the help. I am going to try and sign up. I'm going to start putting envelopes together and see what I have so far.

MariaBronx 01/12/2018 #

I was nervous about the 20 partners but now I'm excited!!

Bhindblueeyes 01/14/2018 #

ladyaduial - Will you angeling this swap should the need arise??

ladyaduial 01/14/2018 #

@Bhindblueeyes I will angel on a case by case basis. In any swap I host, I do encourage communication between partners as much as possible.
