Details of swap:
...It's postcard swapping time! The Easy Postcard Swap is a STOREBOUGHT postcard swap...and as the name implies, this means it is easy.
If you love postcards and finding out about other cultures and people then this is the swap for you.
Participants will be divided into groups of six. This means that you will be sending FIVE postcards in total, to five different people, and receiving five postcards back from those same five people. (If need be I or anyone else who would like to volunteer can serve as an additional person in a group, if by the end of signups the numbers don't add up).
Postcards need to be written on and sent through the mail without an envelope. I know some people collect cards in mint condition (ie. no writing and sent in an envelope) but part of this swap is to learn a little about another country, culture, state and Craftster member!

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:

Your real name:
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside of your own country? The answer to this question must be yes!
What kind of postcards are you able to send? (ie. Your country, landscape, animals, vintage cards, art cards etc.):
What kind of postcards would you like to receive? (ie. Senders country, city views, native animals, design cards) Please note that there is no way to receive exactly what you want, although I will try my best to match the groups up according to these answers! (and also so we get a variety of places to send to/receive from):
If need be, would you be willing to be a member of more than one 'group' - ie. you will send and receive 10 postcards instead of 5?:
Have you read all this info and agree to be a lovely swapper so MissMeshell doesn't have a nervous breakdown in her first time organising?
