Swapping is so much fun and one of the best things about swapping is meeting new people! The purpose of this swap is to dig a little deeper and hopefully forge a friendship with your partner! Communication is key in making a new friend, so please plan to be in communication with your partner in private messages as well as the swap discussion thread. I will be asking “get to know you” questions throughout this swap for fun and a way for us to get to know each other better!

Nitty gritty, also known as the “Swap Requirements.”

You will write/type a letter to your partner telling them about yourself, your life, your interests, etc. You can talk about anything you think your partner will enjoy learning about you. A favorite trip, bucket list plans, non-crafty hobbies, favorite books/movies/music, etc. Please take your time with this and write several pages.

You will purchase or craft a small item that represents your own interests. This does not need to be craft related, however, if you want it to be, you can. Non-craft related ideas could be: If you are a dog lover, then you can send dog treats. If you are an avid reader, you could send your favorite book. If you are a bird watcher, you could send a bird feeder. If you like to collect something (Pokemon?), you could send a (package of Pokemon cards) or example of something you collect.

Lastly, after reading over your partner’s questionnaire and having conversed back and forth with your partner, you will CRAFT a medium sized item based on their interests.

In an effort to keep the swap moving and to help with postal lag, all 3 of these items will be shipped together. (When this was hosted on the old site, the letter and item about yourself was sent first.)

After the sign up period ends, I will ask you to look at the list of participants and send me a pm with two lists: those swappers with whom you have NEVER swapped with before/ those swappers you have only swapped with a FEW times. (This can also include those you swapped with on the old site.) I will do my very best to pair everyone up with someone new or newer to them! We do want to make a new friend, after all!

If you want to participate, please send your information to: Lynx2Lanver

Hi All!

I have a fun question for you since depending on where you live it is either summer or winter:

Would you rather live where it only snows or the temperature never falls below 100 degrees?

I think I’d rather it never fall below 100 degrees. As much as I like snow, I would get tired of it every.single.day!

100 degrees every day. Even if I’m hiding inside in the air conditioning I need that sunshine! :sun_with_face:

Neither! I’d like a mild range of 50-80 degrees.

Oh, this one is so fun and pretty small commitment with a month to craft a medium. The small can be purchased! I hope you and @kittykill join!

I like snow but I don’t like wearing all those layers of clothes - makes me feel like the Marshmallow Man. The idea of being able to runs around barefooted all year long is way to appealing.

I just sent in my questionnaire, this sounds like a fun swap and I haven’t participated in a MAF swap before, so excited!

As for temperature, I don’t really understand how warm 100 F is, but give me the heat. I love to be warm and can’t stand the snow.

2 Likes

Glad to have you here!

I just did the conversion and 100 F is 37 C.

Oooh, this has me all excited! I’m working on my questionnaire, but it is so long already I decided to send an abbreviated version to sign up (for easier reference), and then the loooong version to my partner.

While I usually don’t like the heat, as it is right now I’d prefer 100F – but not higher. Usually I’m happy between 15-25C (roughly 60-80F) and I don’t need or want more, even at the beach.

I’d be good at 37C, my ideal temperature is 30C.

What is your most used emoji?

Probably, just the basic :slight_smile: for me. Sometimes, :heart:
