Default July Secret Pal Swap Sign-Ups - Closes June 30 at midnight. Come join the fun!

Best month of the year!! Love this time of the year... July 4th and it is summer!

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 each month, and the person you send to will may be different than the person you receive from. Failure to send your package after signing up will be cause to be banned from all future swaps. Please do not sign up if you cannot fulfill your obligation. Have fun and be creative!

After receiving your Secret Palís details, go to work and put together a package with something you think your pal would like. There is a $15.00 limit on this swap that does not include what you have in your stash. (This does not include shipping) Most swappers do not mind like-new stash items. Please send items you would like to receive. Do not send smelly, holey, thin, or stained fabric or obviously used items that should be put in the trash. You will need to send me (hav4boys) a PM when mailing and receiving. This way I can keep my records straight. Also send a PM to your SP thanking them. This is an important part of participating. It lets your secret pal know you got their package.

Please take pictures and post in group as everyone likes to see what you get.

Packages need to be mailed out by July 20, 2022, this is a Firm deadline. All International mailings must be mailed by July 10th Firm. If you know that you cannot mail by that date, Please Do Not sign up.

For international mailing it is very important that you mark your parcel as a 'Gift' on the Customs Declaration (there's a box you can check). Also, the value should be $10 only (even if you send diamond necklace). The person receiving the package is liable for Import Duty, Tax and a Handling fee. This can cost the person receiving as much as $40.

Padded envelopes are much cheaper to send compared to small boxes. These can be ordered free of charge from the USPS website.

You must have a phone # or email to sign up

Please fill out the questionnaire below and Private Message me your info by midnight June 30 to join the swap.

Real Name:
Address:
City, State, Zip:
Birthday (month and date)

Email address:
Phone number:


Sign Ups will close June 30 at midnight PST and names will be sent out no later than June 2nd (Usually the first, but like to give myself some leeway).

If your pal does not receive her/his package within a reasonable time I will need tracking information. If there is an exception on the mailing, you will need to inform me ASAP. No one enjoys not getting a package after they have sent one.

Have fun and be creative!

I just sent an email out to all participants. If you already signed up, no worries, I got ya!

Update on mom: She can no longer be left alone. She falls/passes out often. The cancer in her brain is making her argumentative and forgetful. I am spending all my free time with her and work from my sister's home 2 days a week to give her a break. It is tough. Her kidney function is rapidly declining but we cannot get her to drink. It is my life for now. The doctors anticipate 4-6 months but my mom is a tough one.
