I had a very good turn out for my last "Six Week Snail Mail Swap" I thought I would have another one. I hope to get a good turn out this time to!! I enjoyed and had fun with it. So we have the same partner for all six weeks I had to make it with all one swap.

If you like send out to your partner that you recieve thats fun, but is up to you!

You will rate your partner at the end of the six weeks. Your rating will be the over all of the six weeks,You might even get a heart!

Due to postage it's only USA

This "SNAIL MAIL SWAP" will run for SIX weeks. There will be a "theme" for each week. We will send out our letters each MONDAY of the new week.

Please post in the comment space each time you send a week out. Maybe even send a message to let your partner know.

Please don't flake!! If you think you can't do all six weeks don't join the swap. No recent 1's or 3's.. If you have any and would like to join please message me and explain them. Rating of 4.8......No unrated swappers {sorry} I will allow newbies with a well filled out profil. If you do not meet the requirements & sign up anyway I will ban you from the swap.


MAY 14 {week 1}---- Write your partner and introduce yourself. {tell about life, hobbies, job....stuff like that}

MAY 21{week 2}--- Send a card {Senders Choice Funny,Thinking of you, --ect.}..Bought, Homemade

bluecrayons 05/ 8/2012 #

@basykes the partners are assigned now so your first letter can go out monday the 14th.

tamtamlee 05/ 8/2012 #

Thanks bluecrayons for answering.

mcovey 05/10/2012 #

mcovey 05/11/2012 #

send out 1st weeks today to jennifergordon

talanae 05/11/2012 #

I thought we were supposed to mail out on Mondays? (Am I wrong? I don't want to mess up the swap....I'm new here)

Jordaaan 05/11/2012 #

It says we send them every monday so the 14 is the monday coming up, that's when we send them.

tamtamlee 05/11/2012 #

First week will go out Monday the 14 th then the second week will go out the following monday. If you want to get yours in the mail over a weekend that is up to you, But they don't have to go in the till monday. Post here after you send each week out. After you send week six you will mark it sent.

If anyone has any questions please message me I'll see it quicker.

Thanks everyone for joining

talanae 05/12/2012 #

k I was just confused because mcovey sent out today :)

mcovey 05/12/2012 #

sorry for the confusion I just had it ready and went ahead and mailed it so I didn;t think it matter too much better early then late

faye411 05/12/2012 #

mailed my first one out yesterday.

tamtamlee 05/12/2012 #

That's okay mcovey! You can send your week out anytime. I usually send mine out over the weekend.

Just because one sends theirs out a day or two early doesn't mean everyone has to! The due date to send out is on mondays....Please don't get excited or worring over it. This is suppose to be fun!!!! Please be considerate to your partner if you are going to be sending out late let your partner know.

My first week went out today!!
