UPDATE
ok guys, it's been 2 weeks since the send-out date, and so far i have down that only half of you have received.  please, please, please pm either puppy_girl or me when you receive, AND post a comment on the gallery so whoever sent to you knows you got their letter.  thanks!

once you have received, pm whoever sent you your info and let them know.  then go here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=60977.0 and post a short response-just something like people have been doing for the post secret swaps.  it's just not practical to have everyone post all the letters.
Swap name:  Love always, Charlie --secret letter swap--
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: determinedimprovisation and co-organizer puppy_girl
Sign-up date range: October 12-26 2005
Date to send item by: first date--November 1 2005, and then the 1st of every month.

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): nope.

Non-U.S. participants allowed? yes.

All ages allowed? Or 18+? all ages

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:  I got the idea for this from the book The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky and the post secret swaps.  So here's the gist:  you write an anonymous letter and send it off, and someone different will send you one.  sounds pretty fun, right?  right.  the rules:  start every letter with "Dear Friend"  and end with "Love always, Charlie"  write whatever you want in between, but do try to make it at least about a page long.  you can type it or handwrite.  by all means, feel free to write for multiple dates, but send everything for the month together.  this is a 12 MONTH swap, with one letter sent per month.  i know that sounds like a lot, but really, you're just writing one letter a month, so it's not much work. 

...



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

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap:  Love always, Charlie --secret letter swap--
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address (if you go home for the summer or something, please list which months are to be sent to which address.  if you don't know where you'll be living next year (i.e. college people), say so and send me your new address as soon as you know it):
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside of the US?:
List the usernames of other craftsters you know (so you won't be sending/receiving to/from them):
Age:
Random fact/belief/tid-bit about yourself:


IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.  please send it to me, determinedimprovisation.  i'll send what needs to be sent to my co-organizer for you.

Do we write about ourselves or just anything?  Random thoughts... or a story of fictitious person through letter form...?
Either way, I really want to do this.  I'll send my info soon....

i was thinking just write about whatever's going on in your life or anything you need to talk about.  or it could be a completely made up person.  whatever you want, just as long as it's something you put a little effort into and it sticks to the letter format.
