Swap name: Easy postcard Swap!
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: MissMeshell
Sign-up date range: October 1st 2006 - October 12th 2006
Date to send items by: October 20th 2006

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): Edited - YES, there is a limit of 24 people in this swap, and signups will end either on the 12th of October, or after we have 24 people in the swap, whichever comes first (sendout date will NOT change). This is four groups of six Smiley Edit again! Tongue - This swap ended up with 25 swappers, 5 of which are sending within two groups, making 5 groups of six!

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? YES/NO!

All ages allowed? Or 18+? All ages

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES/NO
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES/NO
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES/NO
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES/NO

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES/NO
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES/NO
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES/NO
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES/NO
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES/NO

Details of swap:
...It's postcard swapping time! The Easy Postcard Swap is a STOREBOUGHT postcard swap...and as the name implies, this means it is easy. Tongue If you love postcards and finding out about other cultures and people then this is the swap for you.

Participants will be divided into groups of six. This means that you will be sending FIVE postcards in total, to five different people, and receiving five postcards back from those same five people. (If need be I or anyone else who would like to volunteer can serve as an additional person in a group, if by the end of signups the numbers don't add up).

Postcards need to be written on and sent through the mail without an envelope. I know some people collect cards in mint condition (ie. no writing and sent in an envelope) but part of this swap is to learn a little about another country, culture, state and Craftster member! Smiley

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

Name of swap: Easy Postcard Swap!
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address:
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside of your own country? The answer to this question must be yes!

What kind of postcards are you able to send? (ie. Your country, landscape, animals, vintage cards, art cards etc.):

What kind of postcards would you like to receive? (ie. Senders country, city views, native animals, design cards) Please note that there is no way to receive exactly what you want, although I will try my best to match the groups up according to these answers! (and also so we get a variety of places to send to/receive from):

If need be, would you be willing to be a member of more than one 'group' - ie. you will send and receive 10 postcards instead of 5?:

Have you read all this info and agree to be a lovely swapper so MissMeshell doesn't have a nervous breakdown in her first time organising? Wink


Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

Oooh, I love postcards!  I've been collecting them ever since my great-gramma gave me her postcard collection when I was itty-bitty.

I just sent out my first swap package, so once she receives and leaves feedback and all that jazz.... I'll be sure to sign up!  Grin
