Description:

Hi, First of all this will be a month long swap. You won't mail your items to your partner until the beginning of September.

For this swap you must participate in at least swaps in the month of August, more would be great as it will create a nicer mailing for your partner. I will check profiles and if you have under 5 swaps in your "Currently In" list then I will a) PM you to ask you if you have other swaps in your Watchlist that you are joining for August and b) if not I will have to take your name off the participant list for this swap.

Now are you curious as to what THIS swap is all about?? HAHAHAHA

For this swap you will have one partner. You will mail that partner a copy of each swap you join for the month of AUGUST and the name of the swap host that held the swap.

So for example if you joined a postcard swap, you will set aside a blank postcard for your partner and in a letter explain what you are sending, the name of the swap and who hosted it.

If it was a traveling postcard swap, you WON'T send them an actual traveling postcard... you would just send them a blank postcard.

For more explanation see my list below of the JULY swaps I joined and what I would have sent my partner:

JULY:

Traveling Notebook #8 ~~ cmalaina -- A copy of the entry I added

Playing Card Swap Round#3, Swap #23 ~~~ Hyshu ~~ a playing card (doesn't have to be the same kind/denomination you sent in the swap).

Nice To Newbies: Send 4 ~~ OrigamiGrace ~~ (you had to send 4 things from a list) ~~ sticker sheet, postcard, notecard, address label

12 Days of Christmas Day 2 ~~ CraftyMommaOnABudget ~~~ A sealed Christmas card with flat goodies inside

Move Those Bags#4 ~~ Bizzles ~~ (You could either send an actual bag if you have extras, or you could send an example of what the bag contained) ~~ loose stickers

Playing Card Swap, Round #3, Swap #22 ~~ Hyshu ~~ Since I already did a playing card earlier I wouldn't do this one again.

Traveling Recipe Book, Round #4 ~~ NatalieW~~ A copy of the recipes I put in the book

Notecard Round Robin #4~~ (me hahahaha) ~~ a blank/unused notecard

Bible Study Swap ~~LindaW~~ Copy of the bible study

Traveling Letter Set#2 ~~ me again ~~ A unused letter set

Dear Summer Diary ~~ CraftyMommaOnABudget ~~ a copy of one of the entries from the journal.

So does that explain how the swap is going to work?

If you are involved in a more intense swap like something arty like ATCs or the like, you could enclose a picture of what you make. You wouldn't have to make a new one.

Tea swap... Send a Tea bag

Traveling anything.... blank unused version (not a notebook) like postcard, letter set, notecard....

You get the picture right??

``````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````

So Rules Recap:

Must have 5 or more August Swaps.

Send a "copy" of the swaps to your partner using the example above.

Write a short letter/note explaining the name of each swap, the host and what you are sending.

Make sure your swap ID and this swap's Title is on your letter somewhere. (or on the package)

Do not mail until the beginning of September, even if you complete 5 swaps in the beginning of August, (UNLESS you meet the requirements below in the UPDATE) this is supposed to be a month long swap.


UPDATE: IF YOU HAVE 13 OR MORE COMPLETED SWAPS BY 8/20 YOU CAN MAIL YOUR PACKAGE/MAILING A BIT EARLY. IF YOU ONLY HAVE THE 5 REQUIRED, DO NOT MAIL YOUR PACKAGE UNTIL SEPTEMBER, THIS WILL GIVE YOU TIME TO JOIN MORE SWAPS IF YOU WOULD LIKE.


Since this is a more time intensive swap I am labeling it a Type 3.

No recent 3s, or 1s allowed.

Newbies welcome with a well filled out profile and at least 5 rated swaps under their belts.

Perhaps with this swap we will be able to find new hosts and swaps we've never heard of :)

Clarification: August swaps. Is that the sign up deadline is in August or the mail by date is in August?

I HAVE 20 SWAPS COMPLETED PRIOR TO 8/20 SO I AM MAILING EARLY.
