Swap name: Postsecret Swap!
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Jas.ns
Sign-up date range: 05/06/05 to 05/31/05
Date to send item by: First set of postcards to be sent out by 15th of June 2005, subsequent ones to be sent out on the 15th of every month.
Limited to a certain number of people? (Optional): Well see how the sign ups gomaybe 30 people.

Non-U.S. participants allowed? Yes (pls. Read rules for non-us participants below)

All ages allowed? Or 18+? yes

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: YES

Organizer has been a member for at least 1 month and will
make sure that every participant has been a member for
at least 1 month: YES

Details of swap:
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS A 6-MTH SWAP. Pls. sign up only if you can commit for all the six monthsThis swap is all about anonymously contributing your secrets. Each secret can be a regret, hope, experience, unseen kindness, fantasy, belief, fear, betrayal, desire, feeling, confession, or childhood humiliation. Reveal anything - as long as it is true and you have never shared it with anyone before.

Create your own 4-inch by 6-inch postcards out of any mailable material. Only put ONE secret on a each card. Please put your complete secret and image on one side of the postcard. Be brief, legible an creative. Click on the link below to see examples
http://postsecret.blogspot.com/

Each participant must be prepared to share 6 secrets in all. Each participant will share one secret every month. Additional secrets are optional. If you wish to send out more than one per mth pls let me know and i will give you more partners to send to.

Each secret must be on a separate postcard. I will give each person a list of people, at the beginning of the swap, of whom they will send to every month. You might not send to or receive from the same people every month, and this will be done to ensure that you can send to and receive from as many people as possible.
NON US PARTICIPANTS PLS NOTE: you will mail your postcards in an envelope to the organizer (me) each month and I will send them out to your partners (done to ensure anonymityyour stamps might give your identity away.) I ensure you that I will not look at your secret, just your name so that I can send your postcard to your partner. If anyone has a problem with this or would wish to send the postcard themselves please let me know when you sign up.

There will be no delivery confirmation required for this swap, as we will be sending postcards only. However, I expect everyone to be responsible enough to send them out on time. Its based on the honor system! If for any reason you cannot send out for a month, please please let me know so I can let your partner know he/she might receive only one postcard that month.
Please let me know if any of you have any suggestions about this swap so that we can make it better and easier and fun for everyone.

Just wanted to say that the postsecret site was updated over the weekend (always is on Sundays) so if you're unsure about joining up take a look.

I think that one of the things the site made me realize is that all secrets aren't dark and intense or life-changing. Smetimes they are really small things that you've just never had someone to share them with before. They can be funny or sweet too. For me it's kind of like a way of finding out about myself - sometimes things I've never told others are also things I've never realized about myself.

Ok, there's my encouragement! Join! It'll be great fun!

I am happy to stay with two a month but if it encourages more people to join in then I would go along with the optional.
