Make sure your summer is as rewarding as possible with a Bucket List!

For this swap, you will create a list of 20 things you want to do this summer. They can be as simple as painting your toenails or walking barefoot in the grass or as complex as taking a vacation. (Feel free to use those by the way).

Then decorate your list any way you like! Even sticker slapping is allowed if you use a bunch of good stickers - just make something that you'd be pleased to receive.

Send your partner your decorated list with a summer-related flat surprise. It could be a postcard, bookmark, sticker sheet, an ATC or other handmade item, a notecard and envelope, stationary - you get the idea.

This is a fairly quick turnaround since you can start before partners are assigned and I thought it would be cool to have your list before Memorial Day weekend.

Many thanks to @TwinMom my awesome pen pal who inspired this idea by sending me her list in a letter. She has an awesome group called The Christian Homestead which I encourage everyone to check out!

Now the rules. 4.95 or higher rating with no recent 1s or 3s. Unrated swappers also allowed with a well-filled out profile. Must have signed-on to swap-bot within 3 days of the swap. I also reserve the right to ban if something just doesn't feel right.

Is it acceptable to send a non flat surprise in package as long as it is summer related.

I have mine completed and ready to send when partner is assigned, in the mean time I am gonna put this on watch list so I can do a quick ATC swap. Just joined and am having a lot of fun creating for others.

@Scubaroo73 - sorry for the late response but a non-flat surprise would be awesome, in fact that's my plan too because I have something perfect already. A flat surprise is just the minimum.

I received a question whether the list could be typed. Typed is fine as long as it is decorated.

Help? What is Sticker Slapped?

seekingjoytoday 05/20/2014 #

Sticker slapped means you just put a bunch of stickers on it without a lot of effort. Most swaps don't like this and it is frowned upon in general. I just wanted this swap to be easy-peasy. But I would encourage a little extra effort.

That particular term is not here but a good resource for swap-bot lingo is on the Help! page linked at the top. Here is a GLOSSARY!
