Swap name: kitschy postcard from my summer vacation swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: QuiltersBlock
Sign-up date range: July 3 through 10, 2008
Date to send item by: August 31, 2008

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 11

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO
If so, which country?

Age requirement? 13 and over please

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 13 years old: YES

Details of swap:


This swap is open to people who are going on vacation or staycation in the next 4-8 weeks. You'll send one kitschy postcard to each participant while you're on vacay. In return, you'll eceive (at your home address) a postcard from each other swap participant who goes on vacation. Yay!! Real Mail!

Short signup time, but extended sendout time so if you're going on vacation next week (me!) or next month you can participate!

Minimal cost involved, just the simple postcards you can find at any airport/bus station/cheap eats place/roadside attraction, and a stamp, well, times maybe ten or so. Couple of quick lines ("Weather is here, wish you were beautiful") and bam, you're done! Receivers would post pics of front/back of each card -- blocking out your name and home address information. If you want to use it in a future project, great! If you just want to pretend you have friends in far off places, great!

You will be sending to multiple partners -- up to 10 post cards if the swap fills. If it fills, but you'd prefer to send to less than 10, please let me know and I will assign/draw names for your desired # of partners.

Understanding that these will, generally, be sent while you're on vacation, and that you may not have immediate internet connection, please contact the organizer with the basic updates that you've sent and to whom. No DC#s. No hassles. The nature of postcards and mail service providers being what they are, it's entirely possible you will not receive a card or two....since all participants will mail cards to each of the other participants, it will be easy to tell if there's a flaker or if it's a fluke. We will call for angels if necessary.

If you have any questions, just ask! This is my first time organizing, so I'd like it to go smoothly. Happy Vacationing!

Do day trips count?

My next big trip is not until December but so love sending and receiving postcards. I'm sure I can visit Southend-on-Sea for the day just so I can join....

Absolutely!! Even a "staycation" counts. It's all about sending and receiving post cards.

You can still sign up! You can send from home and you'll get to vacation vicariously through the postcards you receive!

I just finished making up a bunch of different PCs to send to family and friends.... I am guess handmade/crafted ones are ok.  These are ones from our flooded downtown and a pictures of a couple day trips.

So anyway, I sent in my info!
