This is a newbie friendly swap. It should be extremely easy to do. This is to help newbies get "real mail" ratings. Experienced swappers are also welcome.

Very simply, just choose a one thing from the list below plus a small note/letter on what got you started here on swap-bot.

  • unused notecard with envelope
  • 5 stickers - none smaller than a US penny (about 3/4 inch or 2 cm)
  • unused postcard
  • puzzle - word search, crossword, sudoku - whatever one you like
  • photo you took (as long as it is clean!)
  • bookmark
  • 2 sheets of memo paper

What to do:

  1. Choose something on the list and the note/letter and send to your partner by the deadline.

  2. A fully filled-out profile for newbies and a rating of 4.8 for all others.

  3. I will go through and ban as I see fit right before assigning partners. If you are banned and want to know why, please PM me.

  4. I will angel if need be. If you flake, you will be listed as a flaker and I will not allow you in any of my future swaps.

Looks like you have a top ten swap soon. This is a great idea for a type two and three swap that is easy for newbies! I will watch because my list of swaps is near complete full, but as soon as I get two or three more sent out I will sign up. I have today to get some ratings done first.

This is the fifth of June, I am wondering how much longer it will take to make thius a top ten swap.

ladyofunicorns 06/ 7/2013 #

@fawnscrafts I hope it does make it to a top ten swap. :) I remember how hard it was to get some swaps to get ratings enough to join other ones. I figured I would help out newbies if I can. If this does well, I might do another one like it. :)

Thank you for posting this swap. I was a little intimidated, but I'm sure I can handle this.


Houstonsgal 06/ 8/2013 #

You made it to #9! Yeah!!!!!

ladyofunicorns 06/ 9/2013 #

@vitoriansweetie it should not be too hard. I am sure you can handle this. :) If you need any help or have questions please either write here or pm me.

@Houstonsgal it made it up to #6! I never thought I would get one that made it into the top 10 at all. :)

I do plan on continuing to do this swap I think.

victoriansweetie how does this swap intimdate you? I think it very easy and can be a quick rating for newbies , and think if you send several out of the list you may earn a heart too

😊#4 now 😊 go you!!

I haven't swapped in over a year. This looks like the perfect swap to help ease myself back in :) love it!

amycoelho 06/11/2013 #

Looking forward to this swap! I'm a newbie, so perfect for a beginner.

ladyofunicorns 06/12/2013 #

I am so glad that everyone likes it. I will be doing another one like this next month I think. :)

thebragal 06/12/2013 #

I think @Victoriansweetie meant she was intimidated by the 'Bot but this swap seemed easy!

Momskii 06/13/2013 #

I love to help the newbies get hearts.

missysadang 06/13/2013 #

Newbie here, I appreciate this swap :)

okellyhh 06/13/2013 #

no 1 swap.. of course i will have to join! congratulations!!

okellyhh 06/13/2013 #

ohh and i will LOVE to get some photos that my partner took.. if they don't mind ;) but of course anything is welcome too =) happy swapping!!

KraftyKaren 06/13/2013 #

Awesome swap idea. I too love helping newbies out. By the way newbies even though the rules say send one item, if you send more than one you'll probably get a heart rating. Or even just one item that's really tasteful. ;) It's great that this swap made it #1. Congrats @ladyofunicorns

ladyofunicorns 06/14/2013 #

Thanks all for making this the number one swap!

@thebragal I think you might be right.

@missysadang glad you appreciate this swap! It helps everyone.

@okkellyhh thanks! I think it would be nice too!

@KraftyKaren thanks! And thanks for mentioning about sending more than one item. :)

I'm so confuse about how this website works, but I'm trying to understand :) So if I did something wrong, please let me know! :)

FunnerKimberley 06/14/2013 #

Number one swap and I'm in it. Yay!

OrganizedHere 06/14/2013 #

What is memo paper? Is it stationery paper?

cutesygirlynai 06/14/2013 #

hi, this will be my first swap here on swapbot, so i'm really excited. :) i will make sure my partners get something super cute.

if anyone would like to do a private swap, i don't mind sending first as i am a newbie, please contact me.

ladyofunicorns 06/14/2013 #

@athirahanum It doesn't look you have done anything wrong. If you have any questions please write here or pm me.

@OrganizedHere Memo paper is kinda like stationery paper. It is smaller than a full sized stationery sheet. (To me) A stationery sheet is an A4 or 8 1/2 x 11 and a memo is smaller than that. Don't know if that helps at all...

andreatally 06/14/2013 #

Sending tomorrow if I get my partner info before I go to the post office! So fun!

ladyofunicorns 06/15/2013 #

I had to ban a few people so that is what took so long! I also have set up a new swap if anyone is interested!
