IF YOU ARE HAVING ANY ISSUES WITH YOUR POSTAL SERVICE AT THIS TIME, PLEASE POST IN THE COMMENT SECTION BELOW. When partner are assigned make sure and look to see it your partners have any comments there. No one should be rated low because of the disruption of COVID-19

The purpose of this swap is to get Decos moving and not be overwhelmed by huge amounts.

Each person will send one Deco Book to one partner. Just ONE book. You can send the book you received last month, another established book or you may make a new Deco for yourself, or for someone else of your choice. Just make sure your partner has not signed it. Don't send extra books. SIDE NOTE If you are sending your partner a book with only one page left in the book that they will be doing (a homer) then please message them and see if they would like another book too so they can keep playing (if you have extras to offer, that is)

NEW PLEASE HAVE YOUR ENVELOPE WEIGHTED. NO POSTAGE DUE! Your partner has the right to refuse delivery of a postage due envelope. This could result in a lower rating due to a late swap.

It is also a good idea to check your partner's profile. Example: I don't do Art Decos because I don't have the supplies for them, so I'd rather not receive them.

PLEASE NOTE: Homers are allowed for this swap. So you may receive a homer that is USA or International. But only ONE homer is allowed if you are sending excess. Or message your partner to see if they will accept more than one homer.

If you are the last signer of a book, then send it home to the owner. DO NOT pass it on to your partner!! Yes, this has become a problem within this swap the past few months.

When you receive a Deco Book, decorate one page, then send it on to another Deco fan or save for the next month.

Newbies to swap-bot, who know what Decos are, are welcomed, with a well filled out profile (I DO CHECK AND WILL BAN).

Because of delivery issues, multi-profiler/flaker concerns, and site policies I require real names. If you join a swap of mine with a fake name or no last name, you will be asked to fix it.

No recent/unexplained low ratings and you must check into swap-bot within 3 days of partners being assigned. PLEASE check out my profile page and read the "About Swaps I Host" section for an in-depth explaination of my swap rules.

If you do not know what a Deco is, please do not sign up for the swap.

If you still have questions, PM me. I'll do my best to answer them. Also, I will be more than happy to send one to you so you can check it out. I run this swap each month, so there will be another chance to sign up

Also ~ I live in "Boonyville" Michigan and sometimes our internet connection isn't very good. This is especially true when it rains & in the winter months. I have been told that swap hosts have 7 days after the sign up date to assign partners. So please be patient, partners will get assigned and if needed I will extend the send date.

I can angel this swap ONLY after you have contacted the person sending to you, you have gotten no reply and you have rated a 1. If you know of a bad swapper signed up for this swap, I appreciate being informed, but please DO NOT post to the comment section! Send me a PM and I will deal with it that way.

My mail was slow before the pandemic and it is still even slower now. And very erratic.

I mailed an envelope to Ohio and they got it within 2 days. I waited 17 days for an invitation from a town about 25 miles from me.

Please be patient when receiving or sending to me.

Just so I'm clear about the expectations: I should NOT receive a homer UNLESS my partner checks in with me about it first?

institches 01/12/2021 #

@Melogee - no, all homers are allowed. They do not have to check with you first. BUT if your partner is sending you more than one Deco, then only 1 homer is allowed, unless you are willing to send more than one home.

Melogee 01/12/2021 #

If someone is planning to send only one deco, can it be a homer? I am just trying to make sure I understand the rules of this swap.

institches 01/13/2021 #

@Melogee - Yes, if someone is sending only one deco then it can be a homer.

I know mine are slow going out. A simple bday card mailed on Jan 15th took TEN days to reach its destination. I felt so bad.

institches 01/29/2021 #

@Mitziishere - I mailed a Christmas card December 5th. She got it yesterday - January 28th :(

Melogee 01/30/2021 #

Yay! Partner Day! <3

institches 01/30/2021 #
