@Grapefruit7625 asked me to take over this swap for her while she takes a brief hiatus from swap-bot:) So I am gladly continuing this swap series until she returns:)
There aren't many opportunities I have seen to create your own friendship book and start swapping them to get other people's so I thought a swap for new friendship book people would be very helpful!
I also have international swaps up for this so be sure to check them out!
A friendship book is a small book that you put your information in to make friends from all over the world and maybe pick up some new penpals, or even private swap partners! You typically make it a little mini book, I've seen people just staple papers together... It's up to you how you design your friendship books. The first page will have 'made for and by:' and your name, address, birthdate( so they know how old you are-- since some fb take years to get back to you), website info (if you have one), email, basic interests and if you are looking for new penpals. Also maybe add 'please send home once Filled' Then that's it! You send it off and each person that gets it will sign it with the same info and once it is full they will send it back to you! If you still don't get it just google it, or search it on Flickr, you will see examples then.
On a side note: I like to use recycled papers to make my fb's from magazines, junk mail, old manuals, old books, old crosswords, etc to help the earth slightly :-)
You will have 2 partners, and you'll send them only 1 friendship book that you've made for yourself. If you happen to have ones from other people, feel free to send them as well so your partner can build up their collection so they can do future swaps with them! I will accept newbies with a well filled out profile, if I don't need to scroll to get to the bottom of your profile than your profile isn't filled out well enough. I won't accept anyone with any unexplained 1 or 3's.
As a coordinator I look at all my swappers profiles very throughly seeing if they meet swap requirements, hearts, comments on their pages and if they have signed on since the swap was created! I also assign partners around midnight after the sign up deadline has passed.
If you have any questions please message me and I will do my best to answer you ASAP! Take care and happy swapping!
