I see so many fun swaps where people have the opportunity to send and receive little envelopes of happy mail, but yet so many of those fun swaps are not NEWBIE friendly. Every single one of us was a new member once, and we had to really search for newbie friendly swaps.

This is a NEWBIE friendly swap. With that said, I will be checking EVERY persons profile that signs up. If your profile is not COMPLETELY filled out, you will be removed from the swap.

Now on to the details. This really is a simple swap.

  1. Buy a greeting card or if you want, feel free to make a card. (High quality) Write your partner a little note in the card. It can be some words of encouragement, it can be an introduction note, or it can really be anything positive you want to write to your partners.

  2. What you include with the card is senders choice, but please check your partners profile for allergies, likes and dislikes. We don't want your partners getting something they can't use or are allergic to.

  3. Send 3 (Different) items please. Remember... If you send items profile based, you may earn a heart. (Please use a size appropriate envelope and proper postage when sending)

  4. If you get 3 items with a notecard that has a little note inside, than please rate your partner a 5. If you are in doubt of whether they deserve a 5 or not, please contact me prior to rating.

Some examples of what you could send are:

  • Sticker Sheets (NO reward, teacher, tiny or partially used or torn sticker sheets.)
  • Loose Stickers (15 Minimum - NO reward, teacher, tiny or partially used or torn stickers.) *Tea Bags (Wrapped of course.)
  • Hot Cocoa
  • Postcards
  • Stamps
  • Blank Notecards

  • Your options are endless

If you notice your partners are crafters, than please by all means, send them something they can use for their craft.

All items must be new or freshly handmade, not torn, not dirty

I can't control who smokes and who doesn't. So if you get an item that smells of cigarette smoke, there's nothing I can do about it.

Any person with recent 1's (within 3 months) will be banned.

Any person with recent 3's (within 3 months) will be contacted for an explanation of rating. I will than choose whether to remove you from the swap or not.

Please don't flake on this. This is a simple swap that isn't expensive to put together or to ship. This is great for those just starting out or those who are on a small budget.

@doeeyeddolly - I don't make them for US and Canada because I don't get many sign ups...

@JeessJessicaa - If you want to make one for the UK, please feel free to do so .

@mcovey - I think the next time I run this I'll do it for USA and Canada.

Thank you so much for allowing newbies. I have been searching to get into some swaps and it is next to impossible to find someone who will take a chance on newbies. I am excited and wanted to say THANK YOU!!

thisisme 09/13/2012 #

@JournalJunkie - You are very welcome.
