He says he will have a chat with me about it (Uh Oh!) when he gets back. This means a long lecture about showing him the swaps I want to do, not telling anyone else the address I am using... etc etc.
His problem is also that we are gonna have to pay a lot, but I am sure I can look out for swaps that have people from the UK in. the PO box proved too expensive.

if you're worried about shipping costs, make sure you say on sign up that you'd prefer to send within the uk, or even that you can't afford to send internationally if that's the case.
I always put that I'd prefer to send within the uk, because international shipping is so expensive and although I can just about afford it I prefer to avoid it where possible

The nice thing about swapping on craftster (you know, apart from the crafty goodness, and the amazing packages...) is that when you join a swap, only the organizer and your swap partner(s) get your address. Personally, I'm a bit leary of the pen pal list (and didn't join) because anyone wandering around on the site could write down my address, but only a few people see my address for swapping.

Would you have any relatives that would be interested in taking in your swap packages (like an aunt, maybe)?  You could also do the ongoing/formerly unconditional swaps, but it's fun to get packages too.  Smiley

I'm going to sound very naive... but I never even considered that there would be anything dangerous about giving out my address, especially on craftster. But I wouldn't give out my address on a Finnish site (I'm Finnish)... odd.

If I was a father of a 12 year old girl I definitely wouldn't let her give out her address. There are far too many weirdos out there.
