just chiming in about card quality...i dont really care what my cards llok like...someone could scribble a secret on an index, stick a stamp on the back, and send it to me and i would be happy...i mean...ultimately thats what this is about. its about secrets...my only issue is secrets that arent really secres...ok i get that some people dont have a big dark secret...but if you dont have a secret...then dont join a post secret swap.

No matter how much I love nicely done secret, the secret itself always comes first of course  Wink

we went over this, It was ok to send the same secret, the image was supposed to be different, but it looks like that may have been over looked. Its ok. There are a few secrets out there that seem to be the same that look like they are from different people (we apparently love to look at porn), its no biggie.

actually, we didnt really go over it. the organizers didn't say anything on the matter, that i saw, so nothing got resolved. like the rules said, the pictures and words weren't supposed to be exactly the same....which i understand could have been confusing....if read quickly. ya the cards are beautiful and im lucky i got one, but i still think its very unfair that its going unnoticed.  Undecided im not trying to sound like a bitch, but i'm actually really disappointed. the majority of the secrets i received aren't even really secrets, or at least the card didn't depict them in a way that i could tell they were an important secret to someone. i've been a postsecret fan for years, and i have all the books, and i just can't help but feel like this was all so......generic? like i said...im not trying to sound bitchy, but seeing certain replies sprinkled around, i can't help but think im not the only one who feels this way.

I don't feel that its fair for any of us to judge if a secret is good enough or not, this was a swap like all others and yes some of us will feel like we didn't get what we put into it, but I just don't feel that we should say things like that. I would never go into a swap and be like, well I don't think swapperstacy sent a good enough package to swapperstan, its just not right.
And for the record I was not the person who sent the beautiful fabric cards, I just feel s/hes being bashed a bit too much.

Well, I think when you're coming up with so many secrets, not all of them will be earth-shattering.  I know when I did this swap some of my secrets were bigger than others... but all of them were secrets that I don't discuss with people.  That's what makes it a secret to me....  Of course they won't be like the Postsecret books, because they choose what cards go in the books and they're chosen because they're big secrets.  Maybe the people who sent those only have one big secret and that's it.  When you have to make 10 or 15 secrets (which I feel is really a lot!) it's hard for all of them to be equally important.

about the secrets "not being serious secrets": not all the secrets on postsecret are all that serious, either. They just have to be secrets, not deep, dark, depressing or controversial secrets. I would hate to dissuade someone from this swap (part of the fun is receiving, too) just because they don't have any horrible, repressed secrets.

i know in the past some people who have restricted the things they wanted to receive got "less good" secrets than others.. maybe that's why some people arn't thrilled with the cards they got

there's some that i got which i like more than others, but they are all cool
and some i made are really good and a couple were made really poorly but there was reasons behind it all and i don't feel bad for the couple people who might have got my lesser quality cards or secrets...

im not trying to stir up sympathy for myself or anything like that. and i understand that not everyone has a huge life or death secret, but what im trying to say is, when someone sends a card that shows a happy family and says their jealous, or a couple kissing, i just dont seem to think thats really worthy to be considered a secret. of course if your not happy ur going to be jealous of happy people.

some of the cards i have recieved didnt seem to me like the people that sent them to me even considered them secrets themselves. it just seems like a lot of them were "filler" cards if u will, i guess i just can't really appropriatly describe what im trying to say.  Embarrassed
