Easy swap. Newbies with 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. Please send, at least a long business size envelope that measures approximately 4 x 9 inches, however you can certainly choose to go bigger if you want. 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. This does not mean you can send your trash, send only items in good, usable condition. Please do not send items like, 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



recipes/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 that is in good, usable condition.

PLEASE REINFORCE your envelope with tape at the seams or use a larger envelope, if you think there is a chance it will explode during mailing. You may also choose to put stuff in a baggie in case the envelope tears in transit. This is a USA only swap. 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.

And a Big Fat Stuffed THANK YOU to @nmterrier for hosting these swaps for me during my move.
USA Only

How many items should we send?

wolfeagle 01/ 4/2011 #

Depends on what you send. If you send a book, or magazines or some DVDs, then only 1 or 2 items will fit in the envelope. If you send paper ephemera, or stickers, for example... then it will take a lot to STUFF an envelope full. As long as you stuff an envelope, that isat least 4 x 9 size full, then you are good. So there is no minimum or maximum that you can send. Have fun! and feel free to PM me if you are uncertain about an object(s).

TheSupplyStop 01/ 4/2011 #

Ok, this looks fun, I'm a newbie, need guidance

wolfeagle 01/ 4/2011 #

Sure thing @TheSupplyStop Follow the directions above for filling in your profile information. After the swap starts, I will send out an email with info. If you have questions before then, feel free to PM me. Also, the FAQs and new user info pages have a lot of useful information for newbies.

momma2three 01/ 8/2011 #

mrsnewbill 01/13/2011 #

MimiC 01/14/2011 #

I am so new my head is spinning! Sign me up for this swap so I can get this ball rolling.

KayakChickee 01/17/2011 #

This will be my first swap on this site. I can't wait to start participating. Please let me know if I do something wrong. Thanks for welcoming newbies!

SyFyLoveNerd2010 01/17/2011 #

I'd love to join but low on cash, what is the smallest package allowed to send?? Just curious just in case I am able to=)

wolfeagle 01/17/2011 #

@SyFyLoveNerd2010 If you are low on cash, then try swapping postcards to start. This is a regular swap, so catch it next time. :)

hannahcupcake 01/18/2011 #

The stuff I want to send won't fit in a 4x9 envelope...The ones I have that will fit my stuff in them are 7.25x5.25. Is that against the rules? Postcards won't fit in a legal-sized envelope and I've got some really cute ones...

wolfeagle 01/18/2011 #

Nope, you can go larger if you choose, but all that is required is the 4 x 9 envelope.

angeliclizard 01/19/2011 #

I'm probably going at least a little bigger too. I am going to try to get a bunch of nifty stuff I hope my partner will like. :)

starofsong 01/19/2011 #

I have my stuff laid out, just waiting for the partners to be assigned so I can choose items that best fit their profile. I haven't been swapping as much lately and I am so ready to get back into doing it again. I enjoy it!

Turtlepug26 01/19/2011 #

Dont wanna be a humbug lol but are you going to check the profiles of people to see when they were last online before giving partners? I made the mistake of not doing that for my last swap and I ended up having to angel for a few people...just wanna throw that out there... :)

daniecex 01/19/2011 #

Okay.. just to clear things up here.. Im VERY new. I just registered.. I picked this one for my first swap.. I saw someone said something about partners being assigned? Just want to make sure I know exactly how this works.. If someone could clarify for me, I would GREATLY appreciate it. Im excited! (:

wolfeagle 01/19/2011 #

Yes, Turtlepug26 As the host, I will review each profile before patners are assigned.
@daniecex The first thing a new person should do is read the faq's and help section. There is so much good information for all newbies. And, yes, you will get an email notification letting you know partners have been assigned. I generally assign partners, the first day I can but a hosts do have 7 days to review profiles, and ban anyone that they do not want in the swap. Welcome to swap-bot.

Dairenn 01/20/2011 #

This sounds exciting! I have never done this before. I am looking forward to it though.

theirmimi 01/20/2011 #

Sounds like fun! I can hardly wait to get my partner! :)

wolfeagle 01/20/2011 #

Many people have been banned today. If you were banned for your profile, then you can fix your profile before the swap, just let me know. Getting close.....

mienkintoshfairie 01/21/2011 #

Hello, when will we receive our partner assignments? i just want to be prepared to have everything ready for my future partner. The post office is far for me, that's all.

paleskinbeauty 01/22/2011 #

this seems like fun. I think I will make it my first swap! :)

Jodeye 01/22/2011 #

I'm a newbie! Hi everyone. This is the greatest idea ever and I hope I'm not too late to join. Really looking forward to this. I love snail mail and suprises. How cool is reading someone's profile and then going "shopping" for them in my studio? Yay

sugarmagnoliaaa 01/22/2011 #

Happy swappin' yall!

rebma 01/22/2011 #

I'm new to swap bot and this sound like fun! :)

wolfeagle 01/22/2011 #

People can sign up through today and then I will assign partners within a day or two. Happy Swapping.

mienkintoshfairie 01/24/2011 #

I'm excited too! Do we have to ship snail mail?

wolfeagle 01/24/2011 #

You can your envelope that is stuffed full through the US Postal service, or other options might include: UPS and FedEx. Have fun.

angeliclizard 01/25/2011 #

Still looking for a few more things to 'stuff' my envelope with, I am going to try to mail it out by Friday if not, Monday (since I'll be away over the weekend). :)

Artistic 01/30/2011 #

A big FAT stuffed envelope has been dropped in the box for a.m. pickup. It has a lot of stamps on it. I used up a lot of 4 cent stamps I had. :)


wolfeagle 02/25/2011 #

We ended up with 6 flakes. :( But some really awesome angels. Thank you to everyone who is angeling!!
