Paper Doll Swap

Welcome!
 I am so happy you decided to join in and play dolls with us!
 This swap is dedicated to creating homemade paper dolls to swap out with other paperdoll lovers around the world. You need not be a "perfect" doll maker,but please,try your best,follow the guidelines (only a few)and most of all,have fun!

Every other month(or monthly-will take a vote on this) we will have a new theme doll and after all joining names are received,I will partner you up and give you your partners mailing address. Please remember this is open worldwide, so you may have a partner in another country. 

This swap is NOT a mandatory month to month, please feel free to jump in and out when you can. ") 

We all have issues come up in life, but if you a no show with no warning,you will not be invited back to swap. This I have to be strict with in fairness and out of respect for the others who are playing. Thank you for understanding~ 
******************************************************************************


Up next are a few guidelines and go-overs below.
  • Please read all of these and before signing up,leave your name as well as "I agree" in the comments below.
  •  Dolls must adhere to current theme for the swap
  • Please mail out 1 week before due date,and email your partner when your dolly goes out in the mail. Wrap her/him gently,so as not to get beat up by the postal service.

OMG YAYYYYYY! Great idea, I can not wait. How do we sign up??

Sara Barker said...

Let me start by saying this is such a wonderful idea! You sure have provided us with a ton of inspiration! I think I will have to watch this one from the sidelines. I know I would not be good at letting my babies go! Ha! Ha! Your blog is looking GOOD! Have you been busy lately, or has it just been that long since I've popped in for a visit? Sending big warm hugs! (We're having a heat wave, a tropical heat wave!)

Jeanne Draachreider said...

I see a lot of familiar names as I go through the dolls you've received. :) Maybe there will be some meeting up of old friends here. XOXO

Edzellinni aka Linda Edkins Wyatt said...

So exciting to discover other paper doll lovers! And Jackie, TWO of your dolls are in the Wyatt collection, the fairy/angel is always on our Christmas tree, and the Back to School was one of the first I ever traded. Hope to see old friends like Jeanne and meet new ones!

Edzellinni aka Linda Edkins Wyatt said...

Just wanted to add, for Sarah B, that I ALWAYS make two, one to keep and a twin to trade, otherwise I couldn't part with my babies. I do the same with ATCs and tags. Always keep one :-)

Zina Cate said...

Very interesting swap Jackie! I think I may sign up but not sure how often I could participate!

Julie Ann Lee said...

Hi Jackie, I would love to join in. I agree to the rules. You have my email. I've made art dolls, but never paper dolls so this is an exciting new venture!

Tristan Robin Blakeman said...
