Details of swap:
A fun swap for all those lovers of mail and cards and paper too (although cards are not limited to paper)

We are going to be sending a holiday card to swap partners.  Since there is only 25 people max I was hoping to be able to send out to all, but in the questionnaire you can indicate how many people you would like to send and receive from, that way you can make this swap as small or as large as you would like. This is a no-extras swap to keep postage reasonable (especially if you want to send to the whole group).

Please keep up good communication, with both your partner and organizer.  Please label all PM’s with Holiday Card – Sent, Received, Question…etc.  Let partner and organizer know when sending, receiving etc. 

*PLEASE READ!*
- No one like to be flaked on, so if you aren't sure if you can do this swap, don't sign up.
-You must be willing to resend the card, if your partner does not receive two weeks after send out (one month for international swappers)
- If you must send late, let the organizers and your partner know ASAP.
- Please post photos of the package you receive in the gallery.
- HAVE FUN!

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

only if you send in a puffy envelope, I think....

in the bookmark swap I co-organized previously, we just said that if your partner did not receive
2 weeks after you mailed, you'd need to re-craft and mail again.
Does not seem that many went missing, as I remember....

I think she's right. I was a bit tired writing the survey, I have now changed it to reflect no dc required (like most paper swaps) and just resend if your partner does not receive.

If you say 'plz' because it's shorter than 'please',I'll say 'no' because it's shorter than 'yes'.

I can't wait to start these cards. I've been wanting to make some cards, I just didn't want to hand make some cards for some family and friends who wouldn't appreciate it. This is perfect! I just sent in my questionnaire.

Only one more day for sign ups and then it's partnering time!  I'm going to close sign-ups tomorrow at roughly 9pm (EST) so that you can get partners before the end of the night. 

I can't wait for the crafting to begin!
