What is this swap?

The intent of this swap is that everyone will create a pocket letter based on the state that they live in and send it to someone from another state. For this swap, I will be allowing multiples of each state in the swap, just to see how it goes, and in the future if people want to keep doing this swap I may change that. (The idea being that people will be okay with a pocket letter of their own state, since it will not be made by them)

How does this work?

Make a pocket letter using things that are important about your state! Live in Florida? How about some beaches, flamingos, or oranges? You live there so you know best how to represent your state! (it would be GREAT if your goodies included can also be state-themed, but it is not required)


Newbies are allowed to join, with a well filled out profile. I will be checking every swapper.

Last But Not Least

This is a sender's choice swap. Try not to send things that your partner hates but, if you do, your partner should not rate you poorly because of it.

As always, send something that you would be thrilled to receive!

To reiterate: for this first swap duplicates of states will be more than welcome

I'm another New Yorker but I'm from NYC so my pocket letter is bond to be different from Magicinker who's from a rural community upstate

I'm from Illinois- north central part of the state.

@MochaDreams I am speaking for myself, only, but I would love having a pocket letter from my own state. I think it would be neat to see how someone else saw my state. This is such an incredible idea/theme!

MochaDreams 05/ 8/2016 #

@Pupkitmomof4 That's how I feel! I think unless I hear much in the other way I will probably continue allowing doubles of states when I do this again (it is already so well received!)

I've never participated in a pocket letter but this certainly peaks my interest. Wondering what the requirements for the pockets are. What -must - be included?

MochaDreams 05/25/2016 #

@zibbity always include a note to your partber including the name of the swap and your swap name and some kind words almost every pocket should be filled with goodies, tea, stickers, paperclips, stickey notes, sequins, ephemera, are all good ideas to include! I would suggest looking at pocket letter videos or looking at janette lane's original videos and blog posts for other ideas

Southern Oregon here! @RainbowRose lives up north from me so ours should be different!

rmrascal 05/29/2016 #

I'm from central Virginia.

Starwatcher 05/29/2016 #

I'm from coastal Oregon so mine would be different also! We specialize in beaches, whales and seal lions, as well as rivers, lakes and tons of trees. And of course, sand dunes! This one sounds like fun. I will put it on my watch list to make sure I have enough time to put a really nice one together.

CariPeace 05/29/2016 #

For this type of swap, if the rating requirement were to be much higher, then I might join. Looks like there's some questionable swappers that have already signed up.

I love this concept, but am not sure I'd like to risk it.

GrannysNamesake 05/30/2016 #

I'm sorry to have to drop from this fun swap and wish everyone a super duper time.

flowerchild 05/30/2016 #

I too am watching like @CariPeace These often take a long time to create, if done right, and often can't be mailed at a letter rate because of the goodies. I would hate to end up with a questionable swapper as a partner or be forced to send to someone who has already left swap-bot but still in this swap.

MCGalaxy 06/ 1/2016 #

I had to drop out :( I had hoped to have all of my scrapping goodies better organized by this point (we moved 4 months ago) but I still don't even know where my NYC scrappy goodies are. I hope you run this again after I'm better settled because I didn't want to risk doing a poor job or not completing it in time

I'm having to drop out, too. I'm going out of town this week and getting married next month. How about another round in August????

Kraftylady777 06/ 6/2016 #

I really want to do this swap and the ABC pocket letter. I just need a lot more time. I'm kinda a perfectionist. I want to do a good job and have it ready on time
