We all could use a little fun in the mailbox am I right? Send your partner a store bought or nicely handmade (greeting card style) note card with a happy message or quote inside to inspire them for the week. Include one small, flat surprise for them. You can check profiles for ideas, but this is not a profile based swap so don't rate down if you don't like your surprise. It can be a postcard, stickers, washi or whatever. You can easily keep it under an ounce so you can use just a stamp for these. You can send more to your partner, but keep in mind to have correct postage. Paying postage due is not really a bright happy way to start your week.

These shouldn't take too much time so turn around will be quick. Sign up by Tuesday, send by Thursday. I will keep doing these once a week as long as people are enjoying them. Newbie friendly and I will angel if necessary.

UPDATES: The results are in! You guys LOVE these swaps. We have even made it to the top 10 swaps some weeks. So I'm going to keep doing them until you're bored. Please keep in mind to re-read the descriptions as I have adjusted to accommodate questions I've received and alleviate problems we may have had. Also notice the new numbering system. I just don't want the numbers getting out of hand. :)

NEW UPDATE: I have had a lot of messages about the time I assign partners. I really don't mean to screw anyone up or make them "late" and I apologize if I have done so in the past. A big part is time zone issues. I can't assign partners until 12am pst which is 2am my time. I promise though to have partners assigned by 10am cst or 8am pst. I hope this gives most of you enough the afternoon to drop into a blue box or at least Thursday morning to send from home.

I have a 1 rating but it was an accident :( my aunt has cancer and I had to leave the state to go to her. What do I do, there are swaps I want to join like this one...

Aishah1211 In answer to what do I do?

Send the swap for the 1 rating, and fill out your profile is one way to get into swapping.
