Very simple swap, please only take part if you plan on writing back to your partner!!!

Minimum 4.5 rating. Newbies welcome with no ratings if you have a full profile. I'm trusting everyone so please don't let me down. I will angel if need be. This is to help newbies get ratings, we've all been there once. No recent 3's or 1's please. This swap is international.

You will have one partner.

Please send a letter (handwritten only) with a introduction of yourself and answer these questions:

When was the last time you tried something new?
Who do you sometimes compare yourself to?
What’s the most sensible thing you’ve ever heard someone say?
What gets you excited about life?
What life lesson did you learn the hard way?
What do you wish you spent more time doing five years ago?
Do you ask enough questions or do you settle for what you know?
Who do you love and what are you doing about it?
What’s a belief that you hold with which many people disagree?
What can you do today that you were not capable of a year ago?

Nice stationery please.

I will be going through profiles and will ban anyone who is a flaker, appears to be or has recent bad ratings.

Please check out my other swaps!!

Have fun

@cutesygirlynai you need to click "edit this swap" and then click "allow useres who haven´t been rated yet", it is next to the automatic rating requirement button

I joined this swap a few days ago( I'm a newbie and its my first) but I can't find this swap on my dashboard or a don't have the option to join. Did I not qualifie for some reason? Why can't I join in with anything ? Or how do you know who you need to send things too ?

JoanneWong 08/12/2013 #

Hi. has the partners been assigned yet?

heeyitskaitlyn 08/13/2013 #

Have you assigned partners yet?

katrinahigham 08/13/2013 #

When are partners being assigned please? We only have a week in the deadline!?!

flyingfox 08/13/2013 #

I was hoping that the partners will get assigned yesterday as well... I will be away for work starting tomorrow, and won't be back until the 17th. I was thinking that I have two days to work on this, more than sufficient time, but now I'll have to drop out... So sad, as those questions are very insightful and interesting. :-(

popcore 08/13/2013 #

Host hasn't even been online these past two days. I've dropped out cause it's risky.

flyingfox 08/13/2013 #

I sent her a PM. Hopefully she will assign the partners soon. I dropped out because it just won't be fair to my partner, considering that I will be late (by one or two days at the most, but still...) sending out the item, but it still seems like a cool swap. Have fun, everyone! sniff *(;_;)

Lovescats57 08/13/2013 #

I am waiting to get my partner, when is it likely to happen??

ArtCrazy 08/13/2013 #

This one is easy to complete before partners are assigned ... Then just mail out when you get their name and address!

flyingfox 08/13/2013 #

@ArtCrazy I always like to pick the stationery based on the profile of my partner. Some people like "kawaii" while others like Paris theme, some like pink; others like green, some like butterfly; others like flowers, and so on... Even if it is impossible to find something that is to their liking, I at least want to avoid the designs that my partner dislikes.

audball55 08/13/2013 #

I'm going to wait one more day then drop as well :( I was really looking forward to this one but there are a few others I'd like to join, and I don't want to over commit myself.

katrinahigham 08/13/2013 #

this is very disappointing to hear so many people dropping out because we haven't been assigned. I am only new at this and hope this doesn't happen often!

Lovescats57 08/14/2013 #

I sat down and spent quality time on the questions asked. It would be a shame if I don't get to send them to someone.

Lovescats57 08/14/2013 #

I am dropping out! I am very disappointed. As participants it is stressed what we can and cannot do. What of the co-ordinator?

ArtCrazy 08/14/2013 #

I am dropping out, because there are other swaps I'm not able to join, waiting on this one :(. Hope all is ok with the coordinator!

cutesygirlynai 08/16/2013 #

i have extended the deadline & assigned partners; i can't use swap-bot on my phone & i haven't been online :( sorry for the confusion! i will also re-host this swap for those who dropped out and put the last day of sign up on one of my days off work (this has been the problem, working double shifts on the days where i got the email about assigning partners. i hadn't planned ahead- this is my first swap hosted)

cutesygirlynai 08/16/2013 #

@ArtCrazy thanks :[ i'm ok, i just had to cover shifts at work because someone got sick.

cutesygirlynai 08/16/2013 #

@Lovescats57 your time isn't wasted- please i wish you had waited a few days :( because i have extended the deadline now however i know it's my fault. i am going to re-host this swap for those who dropped out, and you will be able to use the letter you wrote to send for the swap. i will PM you about it.

kristy8420 08/21/2013 #
