Hi everyone!

This swap will include a few set items to be sent and also a little room for you to be creative. It has a few different components so please don't join if you're looking for a quick and simple swap.

I am accepting newbies if you have a well filled out profile. Other swappers must have a 4.8 rating or higher, no recent 1s. I will check all profiles before assigning partners and I will drop anyone who doesn't fit these qualifications.

I really love getting personal notes and art from people, don't we all? In this swap you will fill a regular sized envelope with around 6 paper items for your partner. The items will be as follows

-An introductory note with your name and a sweet hello

This can include information about you as well if that's what you want to do.

-A quick drawing

Even if you suck at drawing, this will be a fun edition to your envelope. You choose the subject and how detailed you want it to be. This could be anything from a contour line drawing to a portrait of a dog, whatever you want.

-An article about something you think is interesting or useful

Please no politics or upsetting topics that might offend your partner. This can be from a magazine, or a page from a book, preferably not something printed out, but if you can't find anything to cut out that's fine

-An image that you like

This could be a photograph, postcard, magazine cut out, book illustration, that type of thing. Please don't print this one from the internet.

-A secret

This one is my favorite, there's something exciting about sending and receiving mail from a stranger and knowing that you can tell them something you couldn't tell the people around you. This doesn't have to be your darkest secret. It could be that you stole a candy bar from the store you work at. It also doesn't have to seem like a secret, maybe you sit in your car for a while after you get home because it's more peaceful than going into your apartment. (By the way if you want to share your dark secrets go ahead, that's up to you, but don't say anything that's going to upset your partner, we don't want to know if you committed a serious crime lol)

-And the rest is up to you :)

Include at least one more paper item for your partner, it can be ephemera, a postcard, a sticker sheet, whatever you'd like. You can also send another one of the first items, like if you want to draw another picture or find another article etc. Feel free to include more than this :)

This is not a profile based swap by any means, but please make sure to read your partner's profile to make sure you aren't sending them anything they have stated they don't like.

Please don't rate your partner badly if you don't like the items, they're showing you pieces of what they like and who they are so give them a 5 if all of the required items are included.

Happy swapping!

Can the drawing be a Zentangle inspired drawing?
