This is a lovely little swap to help people make new friends right here on craftster, it is totally up to you weather you keep on writing after the swap, no pressure!!

A postcard needs to be sent to your new partner(s) within a week of finding out who they are, there will then be a further 3 weeks to send your package which must consist of some hand-made stationary, 8 pieces of paper and 4 envelopes is the requirement (please don’t let this put you off, this can be something as simple as coloured paper and envelopes that have been stamped, or you may wish to make your own paper?  (If you manage to do this please show me how as every bit of paper I have ever made had come out so think and stiff that hamsters try to steal it for their housing!!!) You must also send an introduction letter to your new friend, if you would like a page of helpful hints to get you started I can provide you with one as I have a few amazing penpals!! And of course you are allowed to spoil your partner but please let them know you are planning this so there is not awkwardness!
If you see someone’s name on the list that you would like to be paired with please pm me and I will do my best to sort it out for you. Don’t be afraid to ask me any questions, I don’t bite!!

I'm still a "newbie" as far as swaps go. I haven't received any feedback on my other one. So, as much as I'd love to join this one I will have to just watch from the sidelines.

I'm a bit frustrated with swaps on here as I can't seem to join any.

Thank you for the invite though - it sounds like a blast! I LOVE buying pretty stationary.
