J: Fairly new to the swapping scene – since December 2009!

SD: How did you first learn about swapping, and what made you decide to start?

J: Via my Twitter Pals, I thought it was a great way to connect with people globally and in an old fashion snail mail way. I do a lot of networking via social media – so it was nice to get something tangible from the other swappers.

SD: Do you remember your first one?

J: Brooklyn Bride Christmas Card Swap – December 2009!

SD: Do you stick to swaps hosted by people you know or are you likely to swap with anyone, anytime?

J: To-date I have only swapped with people that I have some kind of connection with via social media. However, I am looking to expand my horizons!

SD: What's your favorite swap you've ever been in?

J: Southern Weddings Magazine Christmas 2009 Ornament Swap. Was great to not only send out my ornaments, but seeing what everyone came up with!

SD: What do you do to make your packages special?

J: I liked to have all aspects of whatever the design is to match. Fonts, colours, styles it all has to work together!

SD: Do you have a good story about hosting or participating in a swap?

J: I actually blogged about the whole process of my first 2 swaps I have been involved with. I also blogged about the Joy of receiving when it comes to swaps – check out the posts!
