Description:

This is round 2 for this swap I hope you will enjoy!

PLEASE NOTE YOU MUST BE LIVING IN CANADA, with a Canadian ADDRESS TO JOIN THIS SWAP! I Love our neighbors in the the USA and all over the world but my postal budget makes international shipping tough! Thank you for understanding and please do not be offended, Feel free to create your own swap as rhfaith615 did so beautifully and where I got the idea from.

I loved the international version rhfaith615 created and would like to keep having things in the mail box. I loved this idea and thought a domestic swap would cut down on my mail out costs.

Here is the deal, You will send your partner at least a letter sized envelope (the kind bills come in) of at least 3 items that you did not go out and purchase just for them. Please read their profile first and try to send them items that they might like or can use. The point is to move things along we all have sitting in our craft/letter areas and this is a nice way of uncluttering and keeping new items coming in. As with all swaps please only sign up if you can go through with the swap. Newbies with well filed out profiles are welcome. No recent no sends, 3's or 1. AS long as you receive an envelope with at least 3 items, you must rate a 5. Please do not send only paper scraps or other non useful items. Thank you and have fun swapping!

I loved making my parcel to my partner for the first swap (and she greatly enjoyed it !). Sadly what I received in exchange was quite disappointing... not even profile related... Unusable...

So ladies, don't just throw a few stickers and cheap buttons in an envie, please. ;) Some of us go to great lenghts to please our partners. That's the fun of it ! Doesn't need to be pricey, just thought about. ;)

For exemple : a lady, in another swap, took the time to make adress stickers for me with all sorts of profile related images on them. It was the coolest thing to received ! Didn't cost much and I was sooooooo happy !

Sorry for the long comment, but I needed to say it. ;)

This is great! I'm broke right now so I'm so glad to find a swap I don't have to go out and buy things for!

Oh that is so sweet to get customized addy labels Lulubiz.

I'm with you Lesley I am low on funds now but want to get writing and swapping again like when I was a child. Can't wait!!!

Sounds great. The last time I did a Canadian swap, it cost me a crazy amount to send from Alberta to Ontario so I would suggest checking the Canada Post site and keep your envie within their dimensions of an envelope, not what they consider a package.

Hello, I am new to swap-bot and thought that this would maybe be a good place to start. I promise to do my best to do a good swap job :)

I agree with what toothteri has said. If it becomes a parcel it gets very expensive, cheaper to send to the states. So be sure and keep it where it will fit thru that thin slot that they seem to always check in order to keep costs down.
