So I've just gotten a new addiction... FBs and Label bags. So much fun! But I'm still new enough to it that I don't have a huge group of people to trade with yet so I decided to do this swap.

Send your partner 5 new or established FBs or label bags. That's it, easy peasy. Quick turn around, I will angel if needed but it better not be. Nasty karma will catch up with all flakers. Hopefully we'll wind up with some new penpals and partners in crime!

No Newbies for this one, sorry. I'm open on ratings. Will look at everyone on a case by case basis and if you look flaky I will PM you with questions.

This sounds like me too! I am familiar with fb's but what are label bags?

nmterrier 10/25/2010 #

Ha! I thought I was the only one who didn't know! You can google them and get a little idea but basically they are little envies that you put some address labels in. Say 5. Then you send it to the next person and they take out one of your labels, make you a LB or FB, and then put in 5 labels of their own. This continues through 5 people and the last one sends it back to the "Made for" person. There is usually a sign off area where you put your name and the date so you can keep track of who the fifth person will be. Confusing concept but actually pretty simple.

Oh ok! lol. Thanks for telling me! I think I got it, although I am sure I will find a way to be a ditz and mess it up... :)

So in the end you wind up with an envelope of labels sent back to you??

I don't get it.

jannieb 10/26/2010 #

What do you do with the labels & why do you want them?

nmterrier 10/26/2010 #

Jannie- by the time it gets back to you you will have labels for 5 new people that you can pen pal or make FBs for or LBs. In addition those 5 people will have started new FBs for you and sent them off into the world. Does that make sense?

jannieb 10/27/2010 #

Not really...people are just passing around labels to each other...why do I want their labels?

nmterrier 10/27/2010 #

You want their labels so that you can send them a letter and get a new pen pal or start a new FB.

Ahhhh! I get it! Thank you for the explanation. That was very kind of you :)

Is it okay that I mix them up or do I have to send one of the same for all 5? And can you send more then 5?

Since there is still no partners for this swap I have opened up a new swap http://www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/77214

Freyja80, what do you mean "still no partners"? Partners cannot be assigned until midnight at the close of the sign up day (not until November 9 begins for this one). This goes by the US Eastern time zone. Where the host lives, it's only 5 AM on the first day partners can be assigned. Patience.

Thanks Sweet Clementine!

Turtlepug26 - a mix is fine and if you want to send extras that's fine too.
