A stationery swap

I have wanted to host a stationery swap for a long time, and I have decided to just put the idea out there and ask for people to join in.
The idea is you send your partner some stationery whether it be paper, envelopes, postcards, pens, ribbons etc feel free to use your imagination and in return you will receive a package full of lovely stationery. The stationery can be handmade or store bought or a mixture of both. It would also be great if you could put a little letter in with your package.
Also please spread the word about this swap it would great to have lots of people participating!

The fine details
The maximum spend is $15 but if you go over a little that is ok.
The swap would be international so if your not happy sending overseas please put in your comment with your country of origin.
At the moment there isnt a close date for this swap, I will leave it open until we have enough participants and than advise of a close date. Hopefully the swap will take place in March.
Please don't sign up if you have no intention of participating, its not fair on your swap partner.
To join leave a comment below with your email address :-)

    Do you think we will be able to find out what our swap partner likes before we create the package?

  13. I will give you your swap partners email address so you will be able to find out what they like if you want too.
    If you want me to let the person who has you know what you like just include it in in the email i send to you.

    Thanks everyone for taking part so far!

  22. It would be great to get not just their email address, but their blog, so we can take a peek into who they are without having to ask them directly. I love to learn about my blogging friends by reading about their lives and loves. I know anybody who reads my blog will be able to tell just exactly what I like!

    (and it might actually even kick my butt into posting on my blog)
