(THere is a similar swap, being run by jakeandnicksmom, for alphabet pocket letters, with each letter represented with its own page. She has given her blessing for me to run this one...similar but different.): The deadline dates have been changed intentionally, so that swappers can sign up for all three parts, if they wish. NO other changes were made.

This swap is US only, after some messages a couple months ago, when I ran the swap, for international...

The swap is open to newbies, who have a well-thought-out profile completed. (most of m swaps are open to newbies, with only ONE rule - you must have a completed profile...I have always said, "when I open your profile page, I should have to scroll down to read it.

For this swap, we are going to get through the alphabet a little quicker.

Instead of one letter per page, we are going to shrink it, to one letter per pocket!

This swap will be run THREE times, and I hope you will join us all the way through! We start with PART 1 -IThe dates of the three "sets" overlap, so swappers can sign up for all three parts

....and also -

if some of the same people sign up for all three parts, it is possible that you MAY get the same partner for all three parts...and YES you can abwolutely send them altogether in the same envelope!

iou will have one partner.

For the first round, you will take ONE 9-pocket sleeve, and starting at the top left, reading across, left to right...Fill the first pocket with anything that a paper crafter might enjoy, that starts with the letter "A". Fill the next pocket the same way, this time using the letter "B" and so on.Make sure the letter shows up easily on the FRONT of the pocket.

IMPORTANT: When we get to the letter of your first name or swapping ID, please write a nice little note about yourself in that space!

There are nine pockets, each representing a letter.

So for this round, you will come up with ideas that represent each of the first nine letters, like stickers, origami papers, decorated paper, envies, etc.

Here's some examples: (these are just ideas, please feel free to come up with your own ideas) - and mostly, these refer to pictures or drawings of these things. I don't want anyone trying to stuff a giraffe into one of these little pockets!

A - architecture, Angels, ants at a picnic, aardvarks or antelopes, automobiles, anchors, etc.

B - birds, bees, buttons, beads, border designs,borders, B/W pics, balloons, baskets, bridges, bird feeders, blue anything, etc.

C- carrots, construction zones, cats, chocolate, candles, clip art, cards, clips, colored staples, clocks, cheetahs, cheeky phrases,

D- Dandelions, door knockers, drawings, deserts, decorating, diamonds😀, dimes, desserts, etc.

E envie patterns and envies, embroidery, eagles, envelopes, EXIT signs, elephants, eggs, etc.

F- fine-tipped pens, FB's, fish, flowers, flutes, free-style, fine fine edgings, fabrics, etc.

G- guitar, giraffes, gingerbread cookies, gables on roofs, green anything, etc.

H- hand-made, hearts, hockey, hamburgers, hot dogs, etc.

I- inchies, ice sculptures, ink pads, iguanas, etc.

I hope you have FUN with this, and I hope you will join us for all three parts, so that you eill end up with a fun and wonderful stash of paper crafting things, that represent each letter!

(and I hope you will join us for the Alphabet ATCs swaps, coming SOON - - and there will be some exciting changes with THEM!
