So I know we have a lot of creative bees out there because of the few WB card swaps, we’ve done. Would anyone be interested in a note card swap?
I’m just thinking I can always use note cards. It’s just I don’t want to go out and buy a 10 or 15 pack or whatever they come in. Plus, I’ll get bored using the same ones. I think it would be cool to swap about 3 or 5 notecards with each other, so you always have a bunch to choose from. Or less, if you want only 1 or 2 notecards.
I would probably use swap-bot to set it up. Also, how many partners?
What do you think?
Yay or Nay?
I’m assuming we will want them to be blank inside. Must include envelopes. They don’t have to be handmade, store bought are fine. Do they have to be ‘all-seasons’ (i.e. can you them anytime) or doesn’t matter (i.e. if it is christmas or holiday related or winter/summer/fall/spring)

I am so in like flynn:)
are you just talking about folded note cards? only decorating the front?
I haven’t done a swap in a while and would love to get in on this. I promise my stuff aint junk, although if you saw my wedding collage i did tonight with my wedding colors, you may think it is, but this is just somehting done for my own personal usage.
I would so be willing, keep meposted:)
come on bees get on board:)

Thats a great idea. Count me in! I don’t really ever use notecards but I think thats mainly because I never think to buy them.
To answer your questions:
- Either quantity you suggested is fine with me though I think 3 cards each is more than sufficient.
- I personally wouldn’t mind keeping the swap partners the same (3).
- I think it would probably be easier for the cards to be all-season.

I would love to do this! I always miss the other swaps.
Mine will almost definitely not be homemade by me personally.

YAY for Notecard Swap! I have a *slight* obsession with stationary.

- Wedding: October 2011 - Barn at Valhalla
I would do it! I think 3 cards is a good number to make/buy, for 3 partners (so 9 cards total).

I like this idea also! I missed the other two WB swaps since they were too close to the wedding, but I would love to get in on this.
2-3 are a good number, I *personally* would want to stay away from holiday ones and keep to all seasons.

Ok, cool, sounds good. I’ll keep it to all seasons and 3 notecards to 3 partners.
I’ll keep this open for 2 more weeks, to see if we get more participation. So mid March I’ll set up the swap bot. Give a week to sign up and 2 weeks to send. We should have notecards by the beginning of May. Does that sound okay? Or is that too far away?
Anyone who wants to participate. Post something on this thread. I’ll PM everyone when I set it up.

I’d definitely be in! Yay, excited since this is my first swap! Is it okay that I’m outside the US?

@anon12345: It should be okay. We’ve included international bees in our past card swaps. I’ll just have to remember to mention something about giving extra time for mailing to the international bees.
