I caved in and started working on my questionnaire. I've wanted to do this one for ages!

I'll swap for postcards, badges, maps or brochures from everywhere in the US! I'm an English teacher and always happy about authentic material for my classroom.

Gotta work on my questionnaire but of course I'll be back for rd18!! (at this point, my whole family knows and looks forward to helping me with my little visitors! LOL)

My friends have caught on, too! I actually had one friend who was a little sad that she didn't get to see Clyde again before I sent him back to you Smiley She'll be happy to know I'll have another LV coming soon!!!

I've never tried this swap but always thought it looked fun! I must think about who here would like to go on a trip. I'm just curious, how reliable is the return rate for the LV's? Are there ever flakers who don't return them?

There are occasional flakers unfortunately, we have been averaging one per round. So we recommend sending a LV that you make or buy specifically for this swap. Not something you have a strong attachment to. Mountains and Clouds and I do everything in our power to try to prevent flakers, but sometimes things happen. Please don't let that keep you from signing up. This swap is a blast Smiley I started participating in it years ago and now I'm totally hooked  Cheesy

As long as you try to stay in contact with your partner, and let us know if you haven't heard from them in a while, we can pounce on any problems as they arise!  Also, feel free to recruit a partner you've worked with before, if it makes you feel better.


Everyone: I have just opened feedback for those who have sent their questionnaires.  Please double check and make sure it's showing up in your profile, if you have a chance!  Yay!

I always thought this swap looked fun. I am wondering about how much time each participant spends on it every week.

The time I spend on the actual swap varies... depending on the LV I end up hosting, I try to bring it with me wherever I go whenever I am able.... and now I have a phone that can take decent pictures, so I don't even have to lug an extra camera!  Whenever it comes time to make my book, I always have WAAAAAY too many pictures (like, it would cost a fortune to print them all), so there's never a lack of material to use in the scrapbook.  (Making the book, however, always takes me more time than I expect : P )

Yay I've been accepted! Cheesy

Here is my LV who I will be sending in this swap. Her name is Poppy Dappledawn and she is quite tiny (only 3 inches tall from the top of her ears to her feet). In the last round I took part in she went to Houston, Texas, so we are both very excited to find out where she will be going this time!

Yay, I've been waiting for this! It's so lonely without an LV.  I sent my questionnaire in on my phone, because I was afraid of missing out, I hope it went through. A.D. Pose will be going out again, I'll repost a picture to this thread when I get home to a real computer.

Here's a picture of my little Jimmie. He is very excited about the upcoming trip! He came to me in a swap a bit over a year ago from rubies-pearls.
