This is a monthly secret pal swap. There is a sign up every month, and you can choose whether or not to participate each month. You will get a different partner every month, and the person you send to will be different than the person you receive from.
************DUE TO MISUNDERSTANDING AND HURT FEELINGS ONCE YOU GET YOUR PACKAGE FROM YOUR SECRET PAL YOU WILL NEED TO SEND A PRIVATE MESSAGE TO THE PERSON WHO SENT THE PACKAGE TO YOU TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU RECEIVED IT AND TO THANK THE SENDER. AFTER YOU HAVE THANKED YOUR SECRET PAL YOU NEED TO SEND ME A PRIVATE MESSAGE TELING ME THAT YOU HAVE RECEIVED YOUR PACKAGE SO THAT I CAN KEEP ACCURATE RECORDS. *************
PACKAGES NEED TO BE SENT OUT BY September 14th. IF YOU CAN NOT MAIL BY THAT DATE PLEASE DO NOT SIGN UP. Send it as early as you'd like!
If you are sending an international package it will need to be mailed earlier than the 14th. It can take 3 weeks to get there and if you wait until the deadline it delays the sign up for next month.

You do need to send me a PM every month, as I cannot keep track very well of people signing up for more then 1 month. Please don't post a message on the thread about signing up, as I may not see it.
I would prefer that you resend your info, to make minor changes about holidays, personal preferences, etc.
If you would like to do it, please send me a pm with this information. If you are international, feel free to join!
if you are interested in joining, please send me a PRIVATE MESSAGE with the following information. If I do not have a valid email or phone number, you can't participate.
This form will be given to your secret pal. The more you put on there, the better she/he will be able to get things you'd like. Additional information may be helpful to them as well.
There is a 10 dollar budget for this swap. Items from your stash or homemade items are not included in the $10 limit. Postage isn't included in the ten dollars. The most important thing to remember with the budget is to have fun, but please do NOT SPEND MORE THAN $10.
If you want ideas on what to send, look at the previous swaps. Things that are always fun to get is fabric, notions, notepads, pens, postcards, handmade items, little things like that.
Sign ups will close the 31st of August and names will be paired on the 1st of September and sent out no later than the 2nd.
I really want to stress that if you sign up, please, PLEASE follow thru. It's a horrible feeling to not receive a package.
I will be keeping a list of people that don't follow thru.It is not right and it's been happening a lot here lately and we will not be allowed to do secret swaps anymore.
Please make sure that you put your real name and screen name inside the package so the person receiving the package knows who to thank.
1. you must ship your package using a method that provides tracking and delivery confirmation. You can purchase it at the post office or if you print postage, it is free for priority mail and 70 cents for all others. IF YOU ARE MAILING INTERNATIONAL YOU NO LONGER NEED TO GET TRACKING ON YOUR PACKAGE!
2. if your pal does not receive her/his package within a reasonable time (14 days max for within the same country, 30 days for between countries) a public note that you failed to send must be added to the Group Activity matrix. if your pal is still empty handed after 14 more days Swap Coordinators are required to post negative feedback against your account. You will not be allowed to participate in any more Secret Pal swaps. Also, other coordinators will not allow you to participate in their swaps.
It's all about fun, so please have fun with it.
If you have questions, please pm me and I will try to answer as quickly as possible.
