Hi All! This is the continuation of wolfeagles very popular swaps. I am hosting while she is in the midst of lots of stuff, she is OK and will be available to me if needed for help.

Easy swap. Newbies with well filled out Profiles encouraged. I understand we all have to start somewhere and this is a great swap to do that. Send a stuffed envelope with all sorts of goodies to one partner. At least a long business size envelope that measures approximately 4 x 9 inches, however you can certainly choose to go bigger. The items you send are senders choice, however it is always nice to look at your partners profile and try to send items they can use. This is not a Profile swap, so please do not spend a lot of money shopping for profile surprises. This is more for you to send items that you have on hand, that are in good usable condition. Please do not send your trash, like your used candy wrappers, or written on apt. card, etc. Do send items from the list below. If you are unsure of items, you can ask me. Examples Include (but are not limited to ) Post cards,

Greeting Cards




Scrapbook papers, chipboard, etc ephemera



recipe/recipe cards

old photographs

small books

handmade items

craft supplies

teas/coffee/drink mixes

fabric scraps, sewing items

rubber stamps


Or anything else you want to share

PLEASE REINFORCE your envelope with tape at the seams or use a larger envelope, if you think there is a chance it will explode. You may also choose to put stuff in a baggie in case the envelope tears in transit. This is the USA version. Have fun. No recent no sends allowed. Please rate your partner. No FLAKERS ALLOWED. Do Not Flake. I will list all flakers. I reserve the right to ban individuals.

Please do not send scraps of memo paper/notebook/post-it type paper, etc. You may send the whole memo pad or notebook but scraps of note paper does not equal scrapbook papers.

New Swappers- Profile Help: To fill out your profile, go to Profile. Then select Edit Profile. Next select Personal. You will be brought to a screen where you can fill in the sections or add your own. Things like favorite colors, crafts you do, items you collect, hobbies, likes/dislikes, etc...all help your partner to send you items that you will like.

@nmterrier Hi, is this international or USA? If USA, I'm in. :)

WestMichiganGuy 10/18/2010 #

Did you make a mistake? I t should be USA correct? An International one is going on right now.

nmterrier 10/19/2010 #

Fixed the Region - thanks to everybody who alerted me!

This is my first swap and im SO excited! I do have a question though, It says to atleast use a business envelope so does that mean everything has to be flat or can I use a small bubble pack envelope?

nmterrier 10/24/2010 #

You can use a minimum of a business sized envelope, if you want to send something larger that is fine.

slewis234 10/31/2010 #

the flat rate envelopes are awesome for that sort of thing too....and you can really stuff them full!

hbanana 11/ 2/2010 #

Yea! good thing about USA only is the flat rate envies and boxes!! LOVE THEM!!

andannabegins 11/ 2/2010 #

flat rate envies rock!!

WestMichiganGuy 11/ 2/2010 #

Go Flat Rate and really save.

Sweetthing 11/ 4/2010 #

What's the flat rate these days?

draco 11/ 4/2010 #

sweetthing- small flat rate boxes are $4.95 and the flat rate envies are $4.90. prices go up the larger the box hope this helps

I like this swap idea very much! However, my last partner did not like any of the items on the list except DVD's. lol. I sent a package as close to her profile likes as possible and in a much larger sized envelope.

Just a please and thank you: If you are new to SB and joining this swap, please be sure some items on the list are items in your profile! ;)

nmterrier 11/ 6/2010 #

Hey Stacirose- I've run into that too but don't forget that in the end it's senders choice. If your partners profile is thin you just send the things you choose to. The list is just suggestions of things to send, don't feel limited to that at all!

nmterrier 11/ 9/2010 #

As to what you can send, envie size wise, if must be at least 4" x 9". No smaller. However, if you choose to send something bigger (a flat rate box, a large envie, a refrigerator box) you may. The size should not affect your rating tho' if you choose to send the small, business size envelope full of goodies. Any thing not clear about that? I don't want people to feel as if they need to spend $5 on postage if the only want to spend a $1.56. If you want to spend $20 on postage that is entirely up to you. If you have a nice stuffed business size envie ready to send, send it! ;) If you want to clear out your craft room and send a paper box full of stuff, go for it!

I see we can't send "scraps of memo paper" which I totally understand, but can we send sheets of memo paper if they aren't bent/torn/creased? I don't have any full pads, but I have a TON of individual sheets (Sanrio, Disney, etc). Thanks! Watching this one!

nmterrier 11/11/2010 #

No problem with that Mandi. Just send things you would enjoy getting.

nmterrier 11/12/2010 #

Hey all! 1 week left! Newbies - please make sure you have well filled out profiles - I know this seems fussy but, believe me, after you've been on here a while you will understand why it's so important. Feel free to look at my profile or anybody elses that's been around a while. We are all pretty friendly and will be happy to answer any questions. Veterans - if you see anybody shady please feel free to PM me. Thanks and looking forward to another fun one!

I am newbie in Swap-bot. But, I do have flickr account. People can check my website on my profile and see things that I purchase and swaps. I do have other things not on Pictures. I usually send what my partner likes :)

SusanH 11/17/2010 #

I am a newbie also in Swap bot. I signed up and put in my details for the profile. This sounds great and I have a room, no, a house full of craft supplies and will fill up that envelope full! Sounds like great fun! Suzie

Just a quick question: when are we going to get our swap partners?

Bobbi076 11/21/2010 #

When do we get assigned our partners?

Tsukamei 11/29/2010 #

Whoever gets me as a partner needs to ask me for a different mailing address should the envelope be set to arrive too close to 10th of December.

Unfortunately, I never received my envie from Felicia Housley (neverdoubtilove) and there has also been no response to my message to her. Bummer.
