This is a newbie friendly swap. It should be extremely easy to do as long as you follow the guidelines below. Experienced swappers are also welcome.

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

1 unused blank notecard with envelope (blank means unused, no writing on the inside and no themes like "happy birthday", etc.)

10 stickers (can be a sheet, or loose, if smaller than a penny 3 stickers=1)

1 unused postcard

2 handmade or decorative envelopes (must be mailable size)

1 foreign coin or paper money

3 washi tape samples (at least 12 in. each, wrap them on a surface that the tape can be removed from, playing cards work well, or paper laminated/wrapped in packing tape)

1 bookmark

1 hot drink sachets (tea, coffee, hot chocolate, etc...please check for allergies)

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

5 different sheets of note/memo paper

A handmade item

4 interesting playing cards (no bicycle kind, must have a picture or design of some sort)

1 pen or pencil (can be an advertising pen, gel pen, artist pen, decorative pen)

10 used postage stamps

1 unused forever stamp

1 ATC (Artist Trading Cards, made by you or someone else! must be 3 1/2 in. by 2 1/2 in. in size)

3 pieces of Ephemera (book pages, maps, tickets, foreign languages, ect)

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)

1 small gift bag

1 fridge magnet

1 sheet of at least 20 address labels with your partners address

1 souvenir from where you live (can be a map, postcard, magnet, keychain, etc..)

A winter or christmas themed item

A profile based gift

What to do:

Remember to include the name of the swap and your username somewhere inside the envelope! 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. Although this is a type 3 swap, flat mail IS acceptable. I know sometimes people choose to send small parcels or handmade items, so I have made this a type 3. You can mail this swap at the letter rate or parcel rate.

This is not a profile based swap, it is senders choice, but do check your partners profile, as you may have something that your partner will love! Rate fairly, as long as you receive 3 items, and it was sent on time, rate a 5.

Newbies welcomed who have been a member of Swap-bot for at least 1 week and have a well filled out profile. Must have logged into swapbot within 3 days of partners being assigned. No unexplained low ratings, no late swaps on dash.

I will angel only AFTER you have tried to contact your partner and have rated them a 1, but it is up to you to contact me.

If anyone would like to help angel, I would appreciate it! please comment below or message me :)

i havent been "losing people", i've been checking profiles and removing those whom dont meet requirements or are questionable. u can either have a quick swap, or a safe swap. checking profiles takes a while.
