Fancy Pencil and eraser swap! International

Launch gallery slideshow

Swap Coordinator:VenusEnvyGrrl (contact)
Swap categories: Paper Goods 
Number of people in swap:19
Last day to signup/drop:July 6, 2007
Date items must be sent by:August 6, 2007
Number of swap partners:2

International players welcome

In this swap you will have two (2) partners that you will send 5 unsharpened pencils each (total of 10 pencils) and one eraser (total 2).

This will be for traditional wooden pencils, not mechanical. Pencils cannot be "plain", as in just the yellow #2. They have to be colored, printed, designed, glittered, etc. Pencils may be store bought or altered, as long as they can still be sharpened and used.

The eraser may be in a shape, or just a plain rectangle, but please try to make the eraser "interesting" or coordinate with the pencils your sending. Ive seen some people take a plain white gum eraser and draw/paint on it. Sometimes pencils and erasers come in a set, so that might be a good way to go :)

If possible, take a look at your partners profiles and try to pick pencils with designs or colors that they might like.

Please have a 4.5 rating or higher to join, newbies are welcome, but please send me a message first and have your profile fully completed.

did this type of swap over a year ago and it was great fun.

Tip :If you have to send a package to Europe please wright the 7 with an extra line in the middle . Offently postmen take the overseas 7 for a 1 !

Little question : If possible can you put real stamps on the packages ? Not those ugly white postoffice things :o))) I know many stamp collectors overhere and real stamps are very rarely this days .

A little question: is it ok if pencils are sharpened? Because that's the way they're being sold here.

princezna 06/26/2007 #

The problem is they sell mostly pencil that are already sharpened here :( Can I still sign up?

VenusEnvyGrrl 07/ 7/2007 #

Hi all,

I will be assigning partners tomorrow night (7/8) as I have been out of town for the holiday and got back to multiple emails about people wanting to join, so I wanted to give them a chance to sign up before I close the swap.

Also, I would prefer that you use only unsharpened pencils in this swap, as thats what Ive asked for and I dont want anyone to be upset if they signed up to recieve unsharpened and they recieve something else.

Hope that clears everything up,

no one else can join because it's past the sign up date (6th) and those that can only get sharpened pencils can't drop out either. I personally wouldn't mind recieving sharpened pencils, they have to be sharpened to use them!

GiedreU 07/ 8/2007 #

oh well...just drop me out then.

VenusEnvyGrrl 07/ 8/2007 #

I dont want anyone to be upset, I see that noone else can join or drop, so we will just say sharpened is fine. Next time we all know. Partners will be assigned right now.

Thanks, Aimee
