Taking a few ideas here and merging them into one.

Think of it as a 'secret' spook' for Halloween.

You will be partnered with one person and will send them a minimum of 4 mailings for the month of October. -- It's a great time to be creative!--

Should be something you would want to receive to make Halloween a fun experience.

Mailing 1: This should be an excited note either on a Halloween themed card/postcard; telling of your plans for Halloween this year. Are you going to be dressing up? Giving out candy? -- can include some fun stickers, postcards, stamps etc. or just be the card

Special note Combine 2 and 3 together if you are crafting something for your partner. (ie: crochet or something bigger that can fill up your flat rate box more).

Mailing 2: Should be a snack or candy - themed again around your partners likes and dislikes.-Read those profiles.-

5$ minimum try not to go above 10$ - can use amazon if you so chose or the dollar store. --Flat Rate boxes are 9$ shipping-- USPS continues it's insanity these prices might not be accurate. Which changes our swap a little bit.

Mailing 3: Again a Halloween themed item, a decoration, something fun. This can be a sticker collection (at least 5 sheets), stamps, washi tape, card set, stationery, ATC's, handmade items are very welcomed on this one. Dollar Store can be used again; just remember it needs to be something you would love to receive.

--Try not to repeat already sent items.--

Mailing 4: Senders choice (ideas given):

Send a spooky story

postcards (2) / card set

something that tells the story of Halloween

Movies themed around Halloween (horror to comedy) - tell your partner about your favorite. Hocus Pocus, Halloween, Halloween Town etc. etc.

Witches, Cats, Spiders, cobwebs, magic, ghosts, ghouls etc. etc.

Other mailing ideas beyond the 4 required.

See something on your partners profile that you have that isn't Halloween themed but you think they will love.

Try to use amazon, etsy for shipping - with USPS changing fees, try to limit what you can for shipping costs :( They add up fast.

Please rate a 5 as long as you have received the 4 mailings, card, candy, something fun/decorative, and of course the 4th that is up to your partner. Everything being Halloween or profile themed

Please remember to give a lot of time for everything to show up. THE USPS is getting more and more delayed. We need to adapt for that.
