Time for round 5!

Everyone will have one partner. All you need to do is send them one note card. Write about whatever you want: how your day went, whats new in your life, your most recent project (or book read, meal cooked). Just a friendly note!

4.9 rating, ALL 1's must be explained to me BEFORE signing up for this swap. BEFORE means that if you sign up, have ANY 1's what-so-ever, but haven't messaged me, I am going to ban you, no questions asked or explanation given. USA and Canada only, others will be banned. I WILL angel, but hope that I don't have to! I will not be flexible with these requirements, nor will I be bullied into letting you into my swaps.

Do we write what we want inside the note card, or are we sending a blank card with a letter on paper inside? I just want to be sure..thanks

lillianmarie 02/ 5/2013 #

Write whatever you would like in the card. :)

I am banned from this swap because "this is USA only" but the description states, "USA and Canada only". I am from Canada.

lillianmarie 02/ 6/2013 #

@roxswapbot I am sorry about that. I copy and pasted from the past one, which was before the USPS raised shipping prices again. I read through it and thought that I had deleted Canada from everywhere it was in the description, but obviously I missed that one. Will go and fix this now. Again, I am sorry that this happened. Thank you for pointing it out to me!

The swap has been changed to include CANADA. I have emailed participants. If you need to drop because of this, I totally understand. Again, I am sorry about this confusion!

Okay, thank you. I didn't have to join again, I'm still in! ~*

I am still wanting to be a part of this swap. :)

@ladyofunicorns I am glad that you want to join the swap. Feel free to!

Yes beware of Canada postal rates from the USA now. They no longer give Canada and Mexico a break. It is $1.10 to send a card or letter to both of those countries as well as the rest of the world.

So if you do not plan to spend that much......

BerlinGeorgia 02/ 7/2013 #

Wow! @lillianmarie if that's the case, that a letter to Canada is $1.10 now too, shouldn't the swap be international? Just a suggestion, since we take the "risk" to have to pay $1.10, we should get the chance to receive something international, too :) PS: I guess it's too late now anyways...

lillianmarie 02/ 8/2013 #

That's some great advice, thanks for sharing. It's a little late to make it international since the sign up ends today. Originally the swap was supposed to be USA only, but because of a mistake on my part, I decided to make it USA and Canada. For more details on that, read my previous comments. Personally, I cannot afford international rates, so if I can't afford it, I wouldn't host a swap that would require it. This swap, as mentioned before, came to include Canada because of a mistake in my description. The swaps that I host in the future will be USA only, but that doesn't mean that someone else cannot host an International version.

I understand :) And I didn't realize that the last day for signup was today until I wrote the comment. Well, I am very much looking forward your upcoming swaps :)

I have to put my $1.10 worth in here! Our rates to the USA from Canada went up from $1.05 to $1.10 on Jan 14th.<--- postcard OR letter! They feel if they have to handle it, makes no difference! Overseas it's now $1.85 !!!!!!!!!!!! Someone's gettin' rich and it's not us!! I figure I have no other "vices" so postage is a good addiction! :-)

kerrydwynn 02/ 8/2013 #

AND: thanks for including us up here in the Great White North!

Since all international is $1.10 I will no longer specify Canada separate and just say International. It is a round global stamp!
