I have decluttered my stickers and ephemera basket! I have a large envelope stuffed with various items - stickers and ephemera. Some partially used and some new. Some of the items I purchased myself in the past and some were items mailed to me in swaps. I will be mailing this package to one winner randomly drawn from all of the participants that join.

When you join - simply answer the question: Why do you swap? Whenever the swap is over and I assign partners, you will rate your partner based on if they answered or not. If they answered the question on the swap page they get a 5. If they didn't answer they get a 1. If they answered late they get a 3. Simple as that.

Then I will take all of the names of the participants and randomly draw one to mail the package to - I will not get a rating for this. My rating will also be if I answered the question on the swap page or not. The package is sent to 1 random winner. I will contact them for their address and mail it off. Due to shipping prices I am limited to US only. Swap rating requirement 4.88.

I swap because I enjoy sharing art and supplies, and I love getting surprises in the mail! I meet new people, and some have become good friends!

blueseabliss 02/25/2019 #

Art should be shared, we all need a place to practice safely and hone our skills, but I LOVE sending special mail to people!

Emilycatherine1989 02/25/2019 #

I swap because: 1) it's fun 2) it feels good to send off happiness to other people and 3) it's a stress reliever for me!

Bkurk10 02/25/2019 #

Im new to swapping, but I swap because I'm a stay at home mom and I was looking for some people to trade mail with. I enjoy crafting and wanted to trade pocket letters and flip books. lets face it- any mail besides bills is awesome mail!!!!

I swap because I enjoy sending happy mail and, of course I enjoy receiving it too. Sometimes it's fun to send RAKs to people just to surprise them.

kokoloc 02/25/2019 #

I swap because I love getting fun mail and new and different materials to craft with and add to my art journals. I also enjoy sorting through my stash and finding things that other people might enjoy using in their crafts!

Momskii 02/26/2019 #

I started swapping because I love getting all kinds of mail (except bills). I wanted a place to send my cards & crafts because my card making was getting out of hand, too many cards & no where to send them. Two of my sending sites closed so I was disappointed (Operation Write Home & Hope for Kids).

JJcrafty 02/26/2019 #

I swap because I love paper crafting, learning new ideas and the friendship made with my fellow swapers. I love to bring a smile to others even though I can't see it, but every time I get a heart I feel like I may have made that person smile.

Ace330660 02/26/2019 #

I swap because I love sharing what I create with others. I love to see what others make as well. It is fun to receive items in the mail !

rubyhousesliprs 02/26/2019 #

I love to swap because I love snail mail! I also love brightening someone's day with a cute postcard or greeting card in the mail! Spreading happiness and cheer to others makes me happy too!

MaryWolfe 02/26/2019 #

What a unique idea here! I swap because it brings me joy to be able to connect with people. I have social anxiety and have a hard time in RL interacting with others. Here I am able to get to know others through a safe means. I love doing things for others and being here on the swap bot has enabled me to do for others. It is then I am truly happy.

abcdefgxyz12367985 02/26/2019 #

I swap one because i love crafting and i also love snail mail. But the main reason I started swapping more, recently is because i needed a healthy hobby/outlet to allow me to get out of my head and connect with people who have similar interests as me.

Blewfroglets 02/27/2019 #

Why do I swap? Why not? Lol I love swapping to get inspiration and hopefully share some with others. Most of the time, being a busy mom, they are small enough artsy projects that keep me going creatively. Thanks for the fun swap it’s a great idea!!

SillyTilly42 02/28/2019 #

I love to swap because I love to share my collections with others. I like to use my collections in an art journal, but I love to share my treasures and discover new ones with people!

cjmadia 02/28/2019 #

I Swap because I have always loved to give gifts. I always add extra into my envelopes. If someone finds pleasure in my swap, I get a warm and cozy feeling. I don't have a wide range of friends (I am a small group person) and I consider the swappers on her to be my friends. No hang out pressure but able to enjoy the good feelings I get when swapping.

Erikaa 02/28/2019 #

Hi, what does swapping mean to me? Well I am a college student who is struggling to keep a float in life and in school. I have my friends and I have my church family but when I get to read letters about other peoples lives I get to escape mine for a while or I get to brighten someone elses life with fun stickers and little notes. That is what swapping means to me.

NotAllWhoWander 03/ 1/2019 #

I swap because I love learning about people. I love sending something that may be small but has the power to turn their whole day around.

paperlvr 03/ 1/2019 #

This is such a fun idea for a swap! I swap because it’s such a fun and creative way to interact with others! It’s a rare treat to meet so many people in the same space that share similar interests! And I love the treasure hunt of reading a partner’s profile and finding fun items, colors, etc from their listed likes to send! The swaps I have received are very inspiring! Thank you for hosting this terrific swap!

tcottone 03/ 1/2019 #

I think this is a very nice thing to do! I just started swap bot and I am so amazed at the wonderful swappers!! This is very nice for new swappers who are just getting started and do not have many items to swap or even don't know what to swap!! I am so happy when I receive a pretty envelope with a nice note inside and little happy goodies. It inspired me to make sure all my happy mail I send is just as wonderful!! It makes me feel happy the whole day!! :)

I swap because I love being able to curate things and send them to my recipient knowing that they will appreciate what I send and the effort put into it. Plus, it brightens up people's mailbox to get happy mail and I think it is a great way to make someone smile c:

January 03/ 2/2019 #

I swap because I like the challenge of making something or trying new techniques and then sending it to someone who will appreciate it. And, the converse - I love to see what others have come up with to interpret a theme or project - I get ideas and inspirations for future projects that way too. And, I love the feeling of opening my mailbox and finding a pretty envelope inside just for me!

madifama 03/ 2/2019 #

I swap because i love getting happy mail and i love putting stuff together for another person! I also love reading someone’s bio and deciding what they would like and putting it all together:)

vlhafer54 03/ 2/2019 #

I swap to keep a connection with the outside world and because I love getting fun mail as opposed to just bills and junk mail. I work from home for a company located far away in another state and get cabin fever. Since I use a PO box, I have a reason to get dressed and go out and break my cabin fever. And I just love to see the things others make and pick up new ideas and techniques I'd never think of on my own.

BasketWorks15 03/ 2/2019 #

I swap because I like to share special finds & it’s exciting to see what goodies come my way. Swapping is also an educational process. I have learned many new crafts; some of which I have added to my regular crafting. It’s also fun to see my mail carriers reaction to my fancy decorated packages. He gets a kick out of it.

Newlybird17 03/ 2/2019 #

I swap because I get a bit bored in the winter months. It gives me a lift to see fun items in my mailbox, I love Snail Mail. And I love to experience and offer the “kindness of strangers”. I enjoy the comraderie, and creative fulfillment it offers.

debbee2014 03/ 3/2019 #

I love to swap and exchange items and ideas with other. To see how they interpret the instructions and how different it is from mine.I use the crafting as a stress reliever. I look at everything to see how i can alter it or use it in a swap. I have met local people around me that like to swap also. When I get mail it makes me happy. Thanks

Jsereg001 03/ 3/2019 #

I swap because I love having a creative outlet and being able to share my creativity with others. I also love meeting people who share the same interests. It’s fun to be able to spoil your partners and it’s also lots of fun seeing what you will receive in the mail!

myancey 03/ 3/2019 #

I swap because it calms me and is something I truly enjoy doing. It helps me channel my inner creativity and allows me to share with others a common bond. It gives me an opportunity to “meet” people near and far.

Ukucaitie 03/ 3/2019 #

I enjoy swapping because it is always fun to get a nice package together to give someone, and its also fun getting surprises in the mail.

Thank you for a great opportunity!

I also love sharing what I make and hope that my creations might spark an idea in someone else. I also love getting mail that isn't a bill!! :-)

I swap because it helps me with my depression. It does this by allowing me to connect with different people who also enjoy the type of crafts I enjoy. Plus having happy mail in the mail box after a rough day is always nice. So I swap to help fight against my depression.
