Details of swap:
This is a 2 part swap! (You'll have to send twice, but nothing bulky requiring a lot of shipping)1.
First I recommend an envelope the size of half a sheet of paper, y'know, it's something like 8 x 5.5 inches. They're cheap like 10 cents at the dollar store. In this envelope, put something of yours that is BLANK. Several index cards, a small notebook or diary that isn't too heavy, a notepad, something that will fit in an envelope that won't be too expensive to send. If you want it drawn on or something specific done on the blank item, also include some sort of note. Send this blank item to your swap partner!2.
When you get an item from your partner, you will have about a week or two to work on it. Do whatever your partner wants you to do, IE draw, write stories, decoupage... just follow any special instructions given to you and make sure that the item is blatantly and irrefutably NOT BLANK! Then, send it back! Your partner will be all like "Omg!!! It wasn't like that when I sent it to you! Sweet!"
Suggested blank items:
Index cards, have your partner write their favorite recipes or stories on the cards.
Blank address label sheets, have your partner make some homemade stickers for you.
Note pad, have your partner keep a small journal for you of what's going on around them.
Something with black paper that uses gel pens maybe?
Something maybe with ATC's?
Blank tags like Christmas tags or price tags? Maybe blank maps or tickets or something unusual like that? Grid paper?
MIX AND MATCH BLANK ITEMS!
