Hi there. It is Apelser here and I will be hosting this swap in future. Thank you to @arianneroxa for giving me the opportunity to take over this swap from her. I am keeping the swap much the same as it was.
So, welcome back!
a.) If you're new to this swap: create a Friendship Book out of a notecard and a maximum of six pages inside (in an effort to keep mailing costs to the regular letter rate). Make this book something that you love, as it will be returning to you once it's full. You will put your name and address on the back cover, as you'll want the book to be returned to you when it's full. :) Finally, you will write your favourite quote somewhere inside the Friendship Book, along with your swap bot username and real name.
b.) If you have participated in past rounds of this swap: write your favourite quote along with your name and information (either your city, mailing address, blog/website or email address along with your swap bot username-- any personal identifier that you are comfortable with sharing) in the friendship book which you've received from your swap partner in the previous round. You may use a page to write more than one quote. You will then send this friendship book on to your new swap partner (assigned in this round).
If you have not received your friendship book from the previous round, you are welcome to put a new one in circulation.
If you choose not to participate in these swaps regularly (at least one out of every two rounds), I will assume that you're no longer interested and will cheerfully assist in getting your FB sent back to you.
When partners are assigned, you will send this book off to your swap partner, who will then add their favourite quote, along with their name and address. In future rounds, your Friendship Book will be sent to other swap bot members (both regionally and abroad) so that they may add their own quotes, names and addresses. Once the book is full, it will be sent back to you, and you'll have a great little book full of interesting quotes from people all over the world.
I will be checking participantsâ€™ profiles and ratings thoroughly before assigning partners. To participate in this swap, you must have a total of at least 50 completed type 2 (flat mail) and type 3 (crafts & packages) swaps combined. If you are currently showing as late on any swaps I will request that you follow through on those before participating in this swap. Similarly, if you have a 1 rating and have not made an effort to follow through on the swap owing to your partner (especially if they are still an active member of the site), I will politely ask that you do this before participating in any of my swaps. Finally, I ask that every member who participates in this swap have a very well filled out profile. I realize that the requirements are high, but keep in mind that this is a swap for something that we put a lot of ourselves into-- losing a friendship book to a flaker is just not a good feeling.
*** Please know that I will angel, but I REALLY hope that this will not be the case as I would like this swap to remain fun and flaker-free. Flaking on any of my swaps will affect your ability to participate in my swaps in future. Please feel free to leave a comment for me below, or message me directly should you have any questions. ***
