Collect found randomness from your everyday life, mostly paper probably, and mail it to your two partners. By found randomness I mean the following types of things: a cute tag from your new jeans, a fun catalog, theater programs, a tea bag of your favorite tea, a cool placemat, promotional postcards, clean scraps of paper you find while out on a walk, work promotional freebies, free bookmarks from your public library, junk mail with neat art on it, tourist brochures from your town, pretty candy wrappers, a paper restaurant menu, a section of your local newspaper, a very inexpensive goodie from a craft fair, a note card you bought at a yard sale, a brochure from your vacation, a recipe your aunt gave you, a random photo you took, the pamphlets handed out during a parade, a free pen from a local business, a cool small thing you received in a swap, and the stickers you get at the doctor for being a good patient (you still ask for them too, right? :)

Note: Found randomness is different than regular crafting randomness. It is not a bunch of collage scraps. This is not a destash craft supplies swap. Please do not sign up just to destash ephemera or crafting scraps that you have already collected.

Anything goes as long as it is not dirty or beaten up and your partners have not specified that they dislike this kind of thing. The idea is to get a little glimpse of somebody else's life through their found randomness. About a five- seven days' collection of randomness is good to send.

Include a note with the swap name and your name. It is also nice to write about where you got or how you used the things you are sending.

Two partners. This is international since this is low cost and we want to see found randomness from all over the world!

Do not sign up if you cannot send or cannot send on time.

Have fun.

Will have to ban without notice people signing up with less than a 4.99 rating, recent or unexplained 1s or 3s, strings of 1s or 3s and/or fishy profiles.

Is there a good number of items to shoot for?

@mariewilliams810 I would say about six pieces of ephemera, or more, per partner. Thank you for your question.

Oh, I'm so glad to see you are hosting a new round of this particular swap! I really like this idea 🎀 Sadly I am unable to participate this time but I'll keep my fingers crossed for a third round some time in the future..... 🌻
