International hapiness swap of joy!!!
ok so it's coming towards the end of the holidays. we all have to go back to work/school or your friends do :'( so i thought to cheer everyone up we send a standard envolope (8 1/2 inches by 4 1/2 ish) to each other full of international hapiness and joy .
The envelope would include:
-something from your country
-something that makes you happy
-A letter or card written to your partner(postcard?)
It might include:
-sovenirs??...you get the idea
but everything must fit in an envelope so that it is realitively in-expensive to post to anywhere in the world
vets and newbies welcome
I'll do it!
okay everyone please copy and paste this -->kinda like a sign up
what you would like your envelope to include/not to include:
What makes you happy:
what you would like your envelope to include/not to include:don't mind
What makes you happy: hot chocolate when it's cold oh and my bed :L
GOLDEN RULE!!! don't give anything you wouldn't want to recieve yourself
OMG, this is a great idea. I definitely need the cheering up; I work on the schools' schedule. ;)
COK Name: Rachie
what you would like your envelope to include/not to include: I like glitter, random jewelry parts, and retro-looking things, especially animals (retro owls, cats, random retro-ish animals you wouldnt think of like jellyfish, etc.). I'm not too into this cutesy Japanese character thing, and ESPECIALLY not gross/morbid things! (no zombies or "bloooooddddyyy naiiiillllllssss," lol. ;) )
What makes you happy: Chocolate, love, knitted things, high-quality hot tea or chocolate, ballet, Halloween and Christmas, Fall, etc.
(**No offense to anyone who did the zombie, bloody nails, and cute japanese crafts! They just aren't for me, is all. )
Great idea for a swap! I would love to join.

Newbie/vet: I think i still count as a newbie? I'm not sure. I've participated in two swaps
Country: United States
what you would like your envelope to include/not to include: I love cool looking jewelry (chains, neat pendents, things like that), animals (anything and everything that has cute or cool looking animals!), candy, dark/evil looking things, anything from miazaki films.
I would love for my envelope to include anything brightly colored, retro , shiny, or anything that looks like candy
Things that make me happy are good natured people who have the ability to think for themselves.
so how exactly does this work??
OMG, I think Summer is my new best friend. ;)
summer do you mean how does this swap work or swapping in general?
I will explain both:
Well this swap is the same as every other but instead of sending bigger items to people in your area of the world, this swap will only require you to send a standard envelope(at a realitively cheap cost) to anywhere in the world. people will generally be paired vets with newbies and i will make sure that you don't swap with someone in your country
swaps in general:
someone will post an idea for a swap and say who it is open too ( some recquire you to have participated in a swap before) then people are paired up by the organiser. the pairs then get in touch and send each other there address. theme, send out date (if not already stated) and send each other their items. The organiser checks that everyone has recieved and people usually put up photos of the items they have recieved
i am sure that I have made it sound more complicated than it is but it is really really easy.honest
it is a good idea to write down what swaps you involved in and the send out dates so that you don't forget.
don't send unless you have spoken and agreed a send out date with your partner
tell your partner if you are away on holiday or have to extend the send out date
the golden rule of swapping is don't send anything you wouldn't want to recieve yourself
Any more questions just ask :] Hope that helps
i would love that.. sign me up :-D
this is a super groovy idea
gonna wait until the end of august to pair ppl up so feel free to join
