"They can be made of plastics or fabrics, whatever your mix don't miss out and join Send Me a Tote & a Note #6! The previous ones have been so fun and have a lot of requests to make it a series. So are you along for the ride? This is for newbies and anyone else who wants to join in the fun.

This swap is so simple, and since so many of you asked for this again, I set up round six. Remember, ** Simple a Tote & a Note**

Let's work together to get rid our world of those nasty plastic bags one swap at a time. Your totes can range as low as $2.00 to $5.00 but really should be any more than that.

Totes can be handmade or store bought I have seen some beautiful handmade totes and strong great store totes. It is up to you for your region and what you have available. Have fun with it.

They are available in cloth that is recycled plastic, denim, and canvas. You can buy them at any store, I have seen them at Michaels, Target, TJ Maxx, Nugget Supermarket, Trader Joes, your local markets and each of them is adorable. They are available at musuems, parks, and so on! **

I have seen some lovely sewn totes and all you sewers are making me jealous with envy! : ) So hurry and sign up. Simply include a note for your partner sharing something fun and off you go to the postal office.

I will not be angeling those totes not sent. Partners must rate their partner accordingly so that they have the record of a No Sent

WOO HOO!!!!! I have just signed up also. Thanks soooo much for doing a Note/Tote for us newbies!!!!!! I already have mine bought.

1Scrapper 06/30/2011 #

You both are welcome. I remember what it was like to start out and build your street card. I will host more swaps to help out. Most importantly, send on time, follow the guidelines, read your partners profile (as applicable), and have FUN.

Hugs, Linda

Thanks Linda for helping us newbies out..... :-)

fluffyporscha 06/30/2011 #

UMMMM ...This may sound like a really silly question but how or when do i find someone to swap with. I am new to this and have no idea..HA HA HA Thanks :)

Sevendevils 06/30/2011 #

Do I have to be a newbie to join? Haha.

fluffyporscha---on July 29 {last day to signup} the coordinator will send out an email telling you to come back to this site & click on partner you send to---that is how you learn who you send to....swap must be sent by Aug 5 {must be sent by}. Hope this helps!

1Scrapper 07/ 3/2011 #

Everyone is welcome to join. For those of you that are new, partners will be assigned at midnight on the 29th of July (thanks turtlelady45 for helping out with this response) I have been enjoying the 4th of July weekend. What you do is check back in to the swap and in the upper right hand corner of the swap you will see " see your partner you send to" and click on that. Then your partner's name and addie will pop up. No worries about asking questions - I was new once and had some helpful folks help me out like this too.

Have fun everyone. Hugs, Linda

Hi 1Scrapper, I have one question before joining: what size the tote should be? I'm french and I'd like to handmade it ^-^ XOXO

Bonlee 07/ 8/2011 #

Hi Linda! Thanks a bunch! For the N&T #6 for newbies! I was SO disappointmented when I clicked on the regular Swap & it said I didn't qualify! Just saw the Newbie specific today! Count me in! Bonnie

1Scrapper 07/ 9/2011 #

Oh glad you are on board Bonlee! I hope this swap provides everyone an opportunity to enjoy themselves and get used to swap bot (e.g., sending on time, getting to know your parnter likes/dislikes and making a package catered to them when it calls for it.

Totes should be large enough to carry some groceries or goodies from the craft store too.

Exciting just joined swap-bot yesterday, this tote & note swap is perfect for my first swap. Thank's a bunch 1Scrapper.

1Scrapper 07/21/2011 #

You are welcome - I am so happy you are all on board for this swap!

gracet 07/22/2011 #

May I know what do you mean by the note? Is it just a note for our partner, where we write something on a piece of paper?

gracet 07/22/2011 #

I've joined the Send Me a Tote #6, is it the same with this? Tq

HoppinUp 07/26/2011 #

Yay, a newbies version!!! As a newbie, there is not much to choose from, so I'm a happy camper!!!

1Scrapper 07/26/2011 #

yes, this is for newbies but you are welcome to join.

1Scrapper 07/26/2011 #

The note is a little card or paper to your partner telling them about yourself, or where you live, how you chose the tote you sent, etc. Nothing specific. Just a note.

HoppinUp 07/30/2011 #

When will we get our swap partners? I do want some time to make my partner something that fits their profile...

ransom 08/ 1/2011 #

I hope we are assigned our partners soon. I fly out of town in a couple days and need to send this swap before I leave. I love this swap, it's my second one and they are wonderful.
