Default New Year! Join the Janaury 2023 Secret Pal Swap. Signups open until midnight JAN.31.

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 Pal’s 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 the 20th of each month you sign up for, this is a Firm deadline. All International mailings must be mailed by the 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. 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 January 31 to join the swap.

Phone number:


Sign Ups will close January 31 at midnight PST and names will be sent out no later than February 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!

Hi Everyone,

Have you had your name yet? I don't want to bother Kathy, but I am wondering if my email didn't get to her?

Hugs

Caroline

HI Caroline, I haven't seen my name as of yet. We'll probably get them today.

Have a great day!

Names are out. Just in case you have a partner you have had recently, I apologize. I lost my laptop and that was where I had the spreadsheet saved so I lost all my historical data. It is now like we just started secret pals.

Hugs,

Kathy

Hi Kathy,

I received my partners name and all is cool. I am sure that everyone understands. I am just glad that I got in this month.

Happy New Year all.

Hugs
