Thanks to everyone who joined last month (September). This swap was #1! First time ever for any of the swaps I host!! (Even Rachel participated! Thank you Rachel!)

This is a newbie friendly swap. It should be extremely easy to do. Experienced swappers are also welcome.

Just choose three different things from the list below and send to your partner before the deadline.

a note on how you came to find swap bot

1 unused notecard with envelope

1 sheet of stickers - none smaller than a US penny

1 unused postcard

3 handmade envelopes

1 craft pattern (full instructions start to finish)

1 bookmark

A letter set (2 sheets of stationery w/matching envelope)

5 different sheets of note/memo paper

A handmade item

1 ATC (they are for trading!)

3 decorative bandages

5 stamped images on white cardstock

3 book pages

1 piece of fabric at least 4x4 inches

3 - 4x6 decorative recipe cards

2 recipes on decorative recipe cards

3 scrap pieces of decorative paper (at least ATC size)

3 blank Friendship Books (check partner profile on this first)

1 Fall theme item

1 Halloween item

What to do:

Choose three different things that are on the list and send to your partner by the deadline. They must be different - example: DO NOT send 3 bookmarks. This does not count. And no, a handmade bookmark DOES NOT count as 2 items. This is not a profile based swap, but do check your partners profile…it’s silly to send Friendship Books if your partner doesn’t do them!

Newbies welcomed, with a well filled out profile (I do check). No recent/unexplained low ratings.

Also ~ I live in "Boonyville" and sometimes our internet connection isn't very good. This is especially true when it rains & in the winter months. So please be patient, partners will get assigned and if needed I will extend the send date.

@racheljohnson ~ Thank you Rachel! I love swap-bot and am eternally grateful to you and Travis for starting it! I have done new crafts that I would have never encountered if not for swap-bot, living in the "boonies" as I do.

@fawnscrafts - Thank you so much for your kind words! I try, that's why I check profiles and send follow-up notes at the end of the swap.
