I had a very good turn out for my last FOUR "Six Week Snail Mail Swap" Even though it's the holidays, 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.

Now before anyone brings it to my attention I know I skipped a week. I skipped Monday Dec. 24!

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.

I have given swappers a chance in the past, I'm sorry to say NO MORE!!

If by some chance you do not meet the requirements YOU WILL BE BANNED!!

No recent 1's or 3's in the past three months....Rating of 4.9......No unrated swappers {sorry}. No newbies aloud. Must have a well filled out profile. If you do not meet the requirements & sign up anyway I will ban you from the swap.


December 10 {week 1}---- Write your partner and introduce yourself. {tell about life, hobbies, job....stuff like that}

Decmber 17 {week 2}--- Send a card {Senders Choice Funny,Thinking of you, Christmas--ect.}..Bought, Homemade

December 31 {week 3}--- Write your partner a letter include your favorite recipe or instructions for a quick craft project

January 7 {week 4} --- Send a post card from your state / hometown. If you CAN"T find a postcard {like me} then write a bit about your state / hometown.

January 14 {week 5} --- Send a letter to your partner --- Include something in the envelope --- Something Small, like a magnet, bookmarker, anything--- homemade or bought. Senders choice.

January 21 {week 6}--- Last week is a free for all whatever {senders choice} you want to send.

Any questions please message me! If this swap has a good turn out I will host another one...

Have Fun!!

Yeah I love these!!! Can't wait!

tamtamlee 11/ 6/2012 #

Thanks ButterflyQueenBee

kirstyenarno 11/ 6/2012 #

I hope there will be an International one too soon, loved it last time and found a great penpal :-)

kellogg 11/ 7/2012 #

I truly enjoyed the last one!! I was hoping for a little change in themes but I am still in!!! yay!

tamtamlee 11/ 7/2012 #

@kellogg I was thinking the same my next one I'm hoping to have a little change! Thanks for joing.

Lila84 11/15/2012 #

This looks neat! :)

renmagpie 11/19/2012 #

Just double checking since you say we'll send our letters out each week - in week 2, it looks like the requirement is only for a card. Will there be an expectation of a letter enclosed as well, or simply the card? Week 4 just says to send a PC - is this naked or is it, too, to be sent with a letter?

I'd like to do this but I want to be sure of what the actual requirements are before I sign up. Thanks!

ladydy5 11/20/2012 #

What happens if you get the same person you got before and she already has been introduced in letter week one.? Can happen. There has got to be plan B for that. That is why other themes would be better.

tamtamlee 11/20/2012 #

@bombardiette you can just send a card if you want...Some sends letters with them, Myself I write a note in the card. Just write on the post card or you can send a letter it's what ever you would like to do.

@ladydy5 Write a letter telling them you was already her partner (which she would already know), Tell the a few things that they might not know about you. You could even write up one of those "About Me" surveys. Even if I come up with different themes the first week will always be and introduction letter incase there is someone new that joined.

ladydy5 11/21/2012 #

It was really a fun thing to do last time.

Noisy 11/21/2012 #

Oh, that sounds funny! If it was international I would join. I am too new to this site, so please please can someone create this swap for international???

nikki8386 11/21/2012 #

Just found out about this site today. Wish I wasn't a newbie so I could join. Maybe next time! Have fun everyone!

mcovey 11/22/2012 #

I would be interested in seting one up for international , if it would be ok for the last 2 weeks to be flat packages so the postage wouldn;t be expensive whick would be around 2 to 3 dollars I am thinking -- we could open it up to international and USA what do you all think . I would love to do for the kids too , is anyone interested in the children doing one like this .

Noisy 11/23/2012 #

@mccovey I would be in, in both: for the big children (me) and the little ones :-) I think my boy,11, would be very interested!

GrannysNamesake 11/23/2012 #

I really enjoyed the last swap and I appreciate it being USA, international is loads of fun but the price of postage is out of my swapping budget.

tamtamlee 11/23/2012 #

mcovey you can do an international and one for the kids. I just keep it USA cause of the postage

mcovey 11/23/2012 #

ok I will set up an international and a kids one tweeted

international one


children's one

RachiiChu 12/28/2012 #

I have sent both weeks 1 and 2. I only received week 2 from my partner, but that must have been a mistake on the part of the post office. So it's certainly not my partner's fault! She mentioned sending it in the card and I believe her.

doodlebugdezines 12/28/2012 #

Card from beadqueene week#2 received... cute card & I like the glitter!

Six Week Snail Mail Swap #6

I look forward to joining!

KarlaKC 12/31/2012 #

BTW, Sent Weeks 1 and 2 at their respective times and Week 3 will be mailed today!

I've received Weeks 1 and 2 from my partner. Thank you!

KarlaKC 12/31/2012 #

Did you know that if you have already mistakenly clicked "Sent", you can reverse that by looking in the gray swap description box above and clicking on "Not Sent" (I think that's what it'll say). Just an FYI in case you didn't know that you can mark it back to Not Sent. I noticed our hostess @tamtamlee made a comment here on 12/14 about not marking sent until the last week of the swap. So if you wanted to know how to mark it back to Not Sent, or didn't know you actually could, there you go! :)

Lizzycat7 12/31/2012 #

tamtamlee 01/14/2013 #

Posting here is just to let your partner know that you sent . If you want you can send your partner a message that you sent out.
