I love Halloween, the fun time of year when you get to dress up and be anyone or anything you choose. There's such a child like joy, that has never left me, and so I'd like to have a series of swaps so that those like me can celebrate our "inner child" by swapping some goodies for Halloween. I also love countdowns to special occasions, and so I thought why not put the two together for ultimate fun! There will be 31 rounds, the first 30 will be the same, but for round 31 we will do a little something differently!

For this swap you will add a little Halloween themed surprise for your partner into an envie, seal and send. This is NOT profile specific, and since each round will have a short sign up and send time, feel free to go ahead and get several rounds ready to go. Remember, round 31 will be different, so don't prepare it early. Please write on the OUTSIDE of the envelope the swap name in case your partner would like to keep them to open each day in October. If waiting to open, please do go ahead and rate your partner when you receive the swap You can always go back and edit your rating after you've opened your envie, but you definitely should rate upon receipt. You can, of course add a note to your partner on the inside.

Ideas of goodies to include...

Halloween Washi tape samples

Halloween stickers

Halloween images

Halloween themed ATC, APC, or similar item

Halloween themed stamps

Halloween themed stamped images

Halloween themed article or short story

Halloween colored fibers, twine, or ribbon

Halloween confetti - but please put into a small zip top or closed bag or envie, don't just leave loose as some partners may not love it falling out into their lap ;-)

Halloween postcards, or stationary

Anything at all is fine, just be sure it is Halloween themed!

If needed, I am more than happy to angel for you. Since this is an international swap, please do allow ample time, and communicate with your partner if you have any problem before rating down.

Recap Take 1 envelope, add a Halloween themed surprise or two, write swap name on the outside, address and send.

Round 31 Sign up 9/29, send by 10/13

This round will have earlier sign ups than some other rounds, but will still be labeled round 31 as this will be a nicer store bought Halloween themed, non Halloween themed but profile specific, or a handmade gift. You may choose to send something handmade such as a handmade postcard or greeting card (blank for your partner to use,) ATC, stuffie, art doll, etc, or you may choose a store bought gift, such as a decoration, a box of goodies, hand towel, etc. For round 31 please do not just buy a single pack of flat stickers, make it something extra special! You will also include a Halloween greeting card with this. This is the only round in which you are required to look at your partners profile for likes/dislikes, and consider them when sending. All other rounds will remain non profile specific.

I will only be posting 5-6 rounds at a time, so please keep your eyes peeled if you plan to participate in all. If you miss(ed) a round and would like to make it up, shoot me a pm. I'm happy to either swap with you or try to find someone who can :-)
