I know a lot of people have been interested in seeing a part II to the successful Post Secret Swap so here it is! The organizer of the of first swap, JazzyBee, graciously let me use all her details to set up this one. Please read the details in their entirety before deciding to participate; it's a lot of info! They brought up some good points during the first swap so you may want to browse over that thread: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=34439. And this is their gallery: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=39037.0

Swap name: Post Secret Swap Round II
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: LivinEasy
Sign-up date range: 08/08/05 to 08/31/05
Date to send item by: First set of postcards to be sent out by 15th of September 2005, subsequent ones to be sent out on the 15th of every month.
Limited to a certain number of people?: We'll see how the sign ups gomaybe 30 people.

Non-U.S. participants allowed? YES, be sure to read the the details below.

All ages allowed? Or 18+? We're going with 18+ just so everyone will feel comfortable sending any kind of secret.

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

Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES

Details of swap:
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS A 6 MONTH SWAP. This means the first will be sent out in September and the last one in February. Please sign up only if you can commit for all the six months. This 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 links 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 and receive one secret each month.

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.

These postcards will be displayed in a swap gallery. If you do not wish to have yours posted please write on the back of your postcard "Do Not Post in Gallery."

NON US PARTICIPANTS PLEASE NOTE: If you'd like you can mail your postcards in an envelope to 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. Make sure to address the postcard with your partners name and information so I can just slap a stamp on it and drop it in the box.  You also have the option of mailing it directly to your partner.

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 find a swap angel for that month. Also feel free to 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.

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

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside of the US? (Just a note: It's only 70 cents to mail a postcard outside of the US.)
Non US participants: Do you want to ship to me or directly to partner?

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

How does this kind of swap work if its your first swap? Do you have to wait the full 6 months to get feedback? Or just the first month? Smiley I really want to join, but itll be my first swap, and I wont if it means ill have to wait that long to join other swaps..

Edited to add: Unless we could come to an agreement (if it is the 6th month wait) could I send all the postcards at once to you (the organiser) for the system you said? That way recieve feedback at once?

I'll give feedback monthly so you can join other swaps as well. How's that sound? Sign up, it'll be a good time!
