Hiya ,I was asked by wolfeagle if i would carry on hosting these swaps International as sh is only doing the USA now,so here it is!with many more to come Easy swap. Newbies with filled out Profiles encouraged. I understand we all have to start somewhere and this is a great swap to do that. Send a stuffed envelope with all sorts of goodies to one partner. Please send, at least a long business size envelope that measures approximately 4 x 9 inches, however you can certainly choose to go bigger if you want. The items you send are senders choice, however it is always nice to look at your partners profile and try to send items they can use. This is not a Profile swap, so please do not spend a lot of money shopping for profile surprises. This is more for you to send items that you have on hand, that are in good usable condition. This does not mean you can send your trash, send only items in good, usable condition. Please do not send items like, like your used candy wrappers, or written on apt. card, etc. Do send items from the list below. If you are unsure of items, you can ask me. Examples Include (but are not limited to )

Post cards,

Greeting Cards




Scrapbook papers, chipboard, etc ephemera



recipes/recipe cards

old photographs

small books

handmade items

craft supplies

teas/coffee/drink mixes

fabric scraps, sewing items

rubber stamps



Or anything else you want to share that is in good, usable condition.

PLEASE REINFORCE your envelope with tape at the seams or use a larger envelope, if you think there is a chance it will explode during mailing. You may also choose to put stuff in a baggie in case the envelope tears in transit. This is a USA only swap. Have fun. No recent no sends allowed. Please rate your partner. No FLAKERS ALLOWED. Do Not Flake. I will list all flakers. I reserve the right to ban individuals.

Please do not send scraps of memo paper/notebook/post-it type paper, etc. You may send the whole memo pad or notebook but scraps of note paper does not equal scrapbook papers.

New Swappers- Profile Help: To fill out your profile, go to Profile. Then select Edit Profile. Next select Personal. You will be brought to a screen where you can fill in the sections or add your own information. Things like favorite colors, crafts you do, items you collect, hobbies, likes/dislikes, etc...all help your partner to send you items that you will like.

this is International swap so if you are not prepared to mail abroad dont sign up!

Hey, I just wanted to say that the description is quite confusing: "This is a USA only swap.", "this is International swap"... I suppose it's only copying mistake, right? Anyway, I think this is a really cool swap which I'll definitely join! ;)

Is it international or USA only???

This is the International version of the BFSE Swap which @sosiejude will now be hosting. I am still hosting my USA version also, Here but have decided that I will not host the International one any longer. It really is a lot of work to host swaps that get so large, so I'm happy to say that Jude is looking forward to hosting the International version. Look forward to seeing you in one or both swaps.

Hi, I'm having trouble getting my partner's address. When I click on the "see the partners you send to" link, I'm not getting anything. Please advise.
