UPDATE: JULY 3....I have received the paper from Heather Garger, and have requested that she be removed from the Flaker list. GG

UPDATE: JUNE 22.....I have reported Heather Garger as having flaked on this swap. GG


UPDATE: MAY 13th......After a slight hiccup, it looks like we are back on track, and should complete this swap by the first week of June. Thanks for all your patience and understanding. Blessings, GG.

UPDATE : APRIL 26th........I need anyone who has not received the box to check in so I know you are still around. Thank you! GG

UPDATE: APRIL 17th.......We are basically half way through our swap now! Thanks to all whom have mailed on time and kept our swap rolling! GG


UPDATE: MARCH 28th......Our swap is underway! The box of paper has been mailed to the first recipient! Yay!!! GG


UPDATE: MARCH 25th.........This swap is now full. I will be mailing the box soon!


I am starting a 2nd round to the 12 X 12 patterned paper swap. This will be an easy swap, as you do not have to make anything! All you have to do is go through your patterned paper, and decide with what you are willing to part. I have done that already, and have come up with more than enough paper to do this swap! As discussed at the end of the first round, I donated over 1/2 of the paper that came back to me to a shelter at which I volunteer. I, myself, kept 23 pieces of paper, as I had started the original swap with 65. That left me with 100 pieces of paper with which to do this round. There is some really great 12 X 12 patterned paper to choose from in this round, from several different paper companies. I think we will all be able to find something we like.

So, this is how we will begin: After we have our list of participants, I will fill a medium sized flat rate box from the PO with 12 X 12 patterned paper protected by a plastic bag. I will include mailing labels for all the people in the swap inside the box in order of when they sign up. I will mail the box to the first person on my list. That person will remove the paper they wish to keep, and replace it with at least the same amount of paper they took out. They will then mail the box to the next person on the list. Tracking Numbers must be used, posted on the thread, and PM'd to me. . You may keep the box for three days, mailing the third day after the first day you receive it. If you cannot mail the box within this timeframe, please do not join this swap. It is just not fair to the other participants. I do, however, understand that there may be extenuating circumstances, so if something arises that keeps you from mailing in time, just PM me to explain, and I will let the next person on the list know. If you are on the Flaker list, this is not the swap for you. If you are new to the Message Board, and want to join, WELCOME!!, and let me know that you are new. I will need some extra information from you to ensure your participation. So, to all that wish to join, YAY!, and follow the directions below:

1) Post on thread you want to join, then PM me your MB name, your real name, your address, and your e-mail address.

2) When you receive the box of paper, try to go through it immediately. Take out the paper you wish to keep, and add at least that amount back.

3) Please no torn, or ripped, or otherwise damaged paper. 12 X 12 patterned paper only. Please include paper comparible in quality and weight as what you take out.

4) Within 3 days, package remaining paper in included plastic bag/bags, and box up. Use included mailing address label to mail to next person on list.

5) Get a Tracking Number, this protects you, and shows that you HAVE mailed the package, and allows the person receiving to track it.

6) If we are getting too much paper to fit in the box, please let me know. I have a large padded envelope I can mail to you that the paper will fit in, and that should last the remainder of the swap. If the box itself is damaged or looking a little worse for wear, please replace it with a new box from the Post Office. They are free.

7) Post that you have mailed the package, include the Tracking Number. Also, PM me the Tracking Number.

8) Have fun!

After the box makes it's way back to me, I will donate whatever is remaining to the same shelter, OR, should there be enough interest, I am willing to host one more round. I WILL REPORT FLAKERS!! So, please just do not do that! I will have sign ups until Fri., March. 29th, OR until we reach 12 participants, whichever comes first. I will then mail the box no later than Sat., March 30th. Thanks for joining this swap! Blessings, GG

There are only 2 spots left in this swap! Come on and join us. This is about the easiest swap you will come upon. All you have to do is sort through some paper, take out what you want, replace it with paper from your stash that you do not want, then take it to the PO and mail it to the next person on the list. Simple! So, come on, post that you want to join, and PM me the info. I requested In point #1. GG

Hello all my wonderful swappers!! Since we managed to fill all our swapping spots early, I will be able to mail the box out early. Yay! I just need one address and some additional info. from a couple of swappers, then we will be able to get started. I will work on making the mailing labels tomorrow. We will just follow along with the sign up list. I will include all the mailing labels in the box, so you will just find the one with you as the return addressee on it, and that will tell you who to mail to next. All you will have to do is put the correct label on the box, take it to the PO, get a tracking number, and mail it off. Remember to post the tracking number on this thread, so the person to receive the box will know when it should be arriving. We also need to post how much paper we took out of the box, and how much paper we put back in. Remember, you need to mail the box within 3 days of receiving it. Thank you all for signing up, and let's work together to make this a successful swap! Blessings, GG.

Hip Hip Hooray! Our box is on its way!! My postman just picked up the box from me, so it will be traveling to Sherrie. Here is your tracking number: 9405 5036 9930 0371 4178.


Just some reminders......

1) I started the swap with 100 sheets of PATTERNED paper. You can choose to take as many pieces of paper as you wish, but you MUST put the same number of sheets of PATTERNED paper in the box as you take out. You may also, of course, put in more paper if you have some you no longer want, is just not your style, you are not using, etc.

2) The paper is in a zipped bag to protect it, in case the box is left in a puddle, a snow drift, gets damaged in some way, etc. Please put the paper back in the bag when you are ready to mail it. I have included extra bags in case we need them.

3) I made up mailing labels in advance, so you would know where the box goes next, just find the one with you as the return addressee. I also numbered them so we could keep them in order, and they are in a protective plastic baggie as well.

4) Please remember to mail the box within 3 days of receiving it. This keeps us on schedule. I do understand that sometimes life gets in the way. If an emergency occurs, please PM me immediately with the situation. I will then let the next person know there has been a hiccup, and when the package can be expected.

5) You MUST get a tracking number. This is for your protection. It shows that you did mail the package, and allows the receiver to track when it will be delivered, so they can be ready for it. Also, please post the tracking number on this thread.....that allows me to track the package as well.

6) The paper is in a Medium Flat Rate Priority box from the post office. These are free and available at the PO. As long as the paper fits in the box, it ships for the same price for all of us, so no one is paying more than anyone else. So do not be concerned about weight. However, please do be reasonable about how much paper you put in. We do not want it to become damaged from being stuffed in the box. Also, if the box becomes damaged, please replace it, so we do not risk our paper getting damaged as well.

7) Most importantly, HAVE FUN!!! Let's all work together to make this a successful swap.

Thank you all, again, for joining this swap. I am sure we will all find some great paper to inspire our unique and amazing creations. Blessings, GG.
