The theory is send one item a day for thirty days, if you don't want to participate every day that is fine, join the ones you'd like. Let's talk about post marks...don't be a wet sack of mice about post marks. Place your item in the mailbox the day of the send by, even if it is Sunday or a holiday. If you get a post mark 1-3 days off of the send by date do not rate down, maybe the mail had already been picked up that day, it was Sunday or a holiday or whatever. Now if you get one that's farther off then that do what you'd like. Please, please be honest and put your item in the mail box the day of the send by date though.

Day #9's item (the 27th) is mail art. Easy peasy mail art. New and clean, please. Handmade is fine.

Make sure and include swap title (including the day number) and user name so you can be rated.

Flaking is theft.

I will be reviewing all participants before assigning partners and will ban as I see fit.

As always feel free to copy exactly (or not, whatever) and make an international version (link to this) or your region swap. Credit me, please.

mail art is considered a type 3 swap :)

@myshoesdontmatch changed it. I figured this was a "little" craft component since sticker slapping or anything of that nature is allowed

For anyone who doesn't know mail art is basically a decorated envelope. Scope out pinteresr for some ideas if you've never done mail art. Only enclosure needed is a note saying what swap and your user name.

NOTE TO SELF: all 28 so far are good to go

For anyone in New England....we are getting our butts kicked with a blizzard right now. The kind of snow that drifts right back over a freshly plowed area in a matter of minutes. My postoffice isn't even open today! I just messaged my partner and will be forced to send a day late. Much shoveling required before I can even consider getting my car into the street which isnt even discernable right now.

@Stacy no biggie, several folks have messaged me. For the residents of blizzard effected areas: PM your partner. For everyone else: this is a laid back swap, so cut them some slack.
