I was involved in this swap years ago and I STILL have some of the notes tacked to my bulletin board. And so, I figured I'd run another one. This was another swapper's idea initially but since she's no longer in the community I can't ask her permission to run it.

We will buy a jar or even better, repurpose a jar. We can decorate it, or not. Frankly, if you don't want to put your notes in a jar that's fine as well. My intent is to fill up my one jar with notes from all 4 of the swaps. But again, the jar isn't actually part of the swap.

The swap is to cut 10 strips of paper (preferably plain printer paper or at least a paper that is easy to read) and easily foldable for our jars. On each of those pieces of paper you will write something happy, encouraging, thoughtful, etc. It can be a quote. It can be a tasteful joke. It can be personal note. And yes, it can be handwritten or typed.

You will do this 5 times as you will have 5 partners.

When you receive your strips, fold them and put them into your jar without reading them. When you need a moment of happiness, you will have several to go to.

I will be setting up 4 of these as I'd like to have enough to last me for the rest of 2021. Sign up for as few or as many as you'd like. However, I DO ask that you use different happy thoughts for each swap. Also, be sure to include a note with the name of the swap and your user name.

This is a low cost swap so I will be opening it up for Newbies. However, for those people who have ratings there are 2 requirements:
- You cannot have any unexplained 1s or 3s from the past year.
- You need to have signed into Swapbot within a few days prior to the partner assignment.

I will angel as necessary as long as enough time has passed since the deadline AND you have rated your partner a 1.

Love this idea. I could really use some happy thoughts right now. Love the fact that even doing the swap forces me to have positive thoughts

Envelopes are dropped in the box for a.m. pickup out to my partners: four in the USA, and one in Hong Kong. Enjoy!
