I got this idea from work. This swap is simple. It's all about stuff for the office-home or at work. Everyone will have 1 partner to send a goodie basket to with stuff for office. Items can include pens, pencils, unique paperclips, push pens, fun folders, post it notes, stickers, mouse pads, stress ball, candy, note pads, etc. You get the idea!!! Newbies are welcome-since we all have to start somewhere. Newbies please make sure your profile is filled out. Others a rating of 4.8 or higher. Will angel if necessary.
Please have at least five different items in your goodie bag you send with a value of $5-$10. Have fun creating your goodie bag!

Looks like lots of fun.

LisseasLuxuries 01/12/2009 #

Is this for a basket or a bag...you use both terms...a bag would be more reasonable to send postage wise...

ladyrn 01/12/2009 #

You can send either. Whatever you feel like sending. A bag is easier for mailing and a basket is cute for a desk top. You don't even have to send your items in anything. The purpose is for everyone to get something fun for their office or home desk. :) I just want everyone to have fun with the swap! :)

Thank you @ladyrn - I just wanted to make sure to follow the swap requirements correctly. Sounds like a fun swap...I love office supplies too!!!

DebP 01/14/2009 #

Do we have to match out items to our partner's profile? Or can we start gathering stuff now and send whatever we want?

ladyrn 01/14/2009 #

You can do whichever way you want. I already have gotten a few items and then will wait until we are assigned partners and try to get somethings that maybe fits their profile.

orit 01/24/2009 #

I believe this is going to be my very first swap :)

lauramartin86 01/24/2009 #

I'm ALWAYS looking for those little tablets that have magnets on the back for your fridge.. and i can NEVER have enough pens.. !*!

renate 02/ 2/2009 #

This is a cool idea. I am a big fan off office supplies. ha ha


ladyrn 02/ 2/2009 #

I am going to be out of town on Feb 5th so I have changed the last day to sign up for the 6th. Sorry if this ends up being a problem for everyone.

ladyrn 02/ 3/2009 #

We are in the top 10 swaps. YEA. Just a friendly reminder that the swap deadline is Feb 6th and then you will be assigned your partners. I have sent notes to a few of you you are newbies, please do no hesitate to ask questions if you have them as we were all new at one time. A few people do not yet have profiles completed please do so before the dead line so that you are able to participate. Everyone have a great day and I hope this is a great swap for everyone.ladyrn

My desk has a red, black and white theme. Please pick things that are these colors so they match my other things. Thanks. I do not need any paper clips or a mouse pad. Magnets, boxes, push pins, baskets, and things with my first initial (L) would be preffered. Thanks!

How many items in this swap are to be??It is here any minimum?Can I join if I newbie???

XxButterflyGrlxX 02/ 4/2009 #

Well this swap sounds perfect for me. I have to ask my mom tho.

biasbabe 02/ 4/2009 #

I would join this swap but some swappers are a little to demanding to what they want in their basket. The swap requirements do not say to list what they want or don't want. Sounded like a awesome swap though.

ladyrn 02/ 4/2009 #

Hello everyone. I think that anyone should read the profile of the person you are to send to and also any comments here. However that may not mean that you will get exactly what you wanted or the likes you have. I think the point is that everyone recieves something they can use and hopefully in the colors or things they like. Please don't feel that you cannot join the swap because some are requesting certain things. This is going to be a fun swap and I want everyone to have fun and hopefully get some great things to use at home or at the office. As far as how many items are in the swap that is totally up to you. I put a $5-10 limit on the things you send but you can always send more or less if that's what you want. More will probably get you a heart though! I myself have been having a blast buying lots of different things. I can't wait for the deadline so I can get my box sent off. I hope everyone has a fun and happy swap.

craftymumof3 02/ 5/2009 #

Can I join in too please???

ricemama 02/ 5/2009 #

This sounds so fun. I am not picky about what I get. I could use everything ; )

mazzlestar 02/ 5/2009 #

I could use everything, but at the moment I'm having a bit of a Sharpie art obsession so different coloured Sharpies (or a new black one!) would be totally appreciated, or any stickers or post-its or notepads or... Anything, really!

pursehappygal 02/ 5/2009 #

Yes,.Sharpies are badly needed,too. And pens! Please if my swap partner reads this, I could use another box of pens! Between my studio and my home, I seem to lose a lot.

shelldevil 02/ 6/2009 #
