Details of swap:
It is a stressful world out there right now. Let’s have an easy little swap to remember the little things that make us happy!

You may choose to have one or two partners. (first time swappers, stick with one, please)

We will be sending:

*One small crafted item (2 hrs or less crafting time; unlike the OTT swaps, physical size is up to you.)
*a card-- share a little good thing from your life, or that you learned or remembered recently!
*a small extra (chocolate, tea samples, ephemera, a packet of beads or buttons… whatever you think your partner would like!)

This is a low bar for international shipping-- you can craft an ATC or small prayer flag & pick a flat extra to send in a standard envelope. However, any package that can’t be sent with tracking and/or a receipt for proof of shipping will follow the papercraft swap rule that missing packages must be replaced/resent by the original swapper rather than getting an angel.

We will have weekly check-in questions in the thread (because they’re fun!) but if you just want to pop in to say “still alive!” that is a perfectly acceptable check-in too. :smiley:

To confirm, this is papercraft rules? It says both, but it occurred to me that the first part might be swap boilerplate.

Papercraft rules if you’re sending letter-rate, normal swap rules for packages. Will add this to the default stuff, thanks.

I was sitting this round of swaps out but feeling like the timing and requirements for this are lining up for me. I’ll work on my q tomorrow!

I mean, I’d already started compiling a list of LGTs, so I might as well fill out the questionnaire :wink:.

I’m glad sign ups are until 3/14! If I get my current swaps finished (or almost finished) by then I’ll sign up. :slight_smile:

YAY! I was hoping this one would come up after February. My ability to join this swap is going to be heavily decided based on how much progress my new husband and I have made on moving him out of his previous apartment and into my condo. If the house is still a wreck, I will probably need to sit out and cheer you all on from the sidelines. HOWEVER, I have totally downloaded the Questionnaire and filled it out and set a reminder on my phone for the morning of the 14th, so I will be ready to go if things are looking properly sorted! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: :crossed_fingers: :two_hearts:

Last year’s LGT was great! At the time we thought it was a goodbye-swap, but it turned out to be the first of many swaps completed in our new home. I’ve been waiting for this one :heart:
