Swaps and random acts of kindness (RAK)
All, I am posting this as part of the swaps team.

I've known for a long time that the folks on this board are wonderful, generous people; and the recent RAK going across the world with card swaps just reinforces that. However, your swaps team would like to ask a few things of everyone. There have been pictures posted of RAK received, but they are most often not PW products and we need to honor the company that supports this wonderful board. Also, not everyone sends RAK and we want everyone to know that's OK too; no one has to provide RAK and just because some do doesn't mean everyone has too.

Having said all that...Please do not post pictures or thank folks for any RAK received in the monthly swap thread. Please feel free to send private messages to convey your thanks.

If you have any questions about this, please let us know.

We are hoping this change will allow everyone to enjoy the monthly swaps even more and perhaps have more folks wanting to participate.

Is there a RAK group formed that I can join in on?

Welcome to the board! I was referring to goodies added when we send our monthly swaps. If you would like to join in, we would love to have you! Check out the monthly swaps section for FAQ and don't forget you can also join in on the weekly challenges.

We are such a generous group of folks, just bumped this up as a reminder for myself :)

Oooops...sorry, didn't realize. Won't let it happen again. :) But can I just say that this group is a great group.

Is this a swap group or do I need to look around for one?

Kathy - We have swaps within the group but it's not entirely a swaps groups. Look through the main list and you will find Swap topics. I'm still new at this so not sure if I'm explaining this very well...oh, and welcome. :)

Hi Kathy, yes we do a monthly card swap and will be starting a monthly scrapbooking swap soon. We also have various other swaps throughout the year. We just finished a Spring ATC swap. We also have done kit swaps, round robin swaps and last year we had a paper swap, fat page swap, Christmas songbook swap and many others.

We also have weekly challenges with a monthly winner and a designer challenge hosted by the PW designers.

We'd love to have you join us! In fact, there is still time to join in for the May card swap with a ladies, leaves and a bit of lace and any theme. If you'd like to join the swap, please PM swaps albums. If you don't know how to do that, please just post in the May swap thread that you would like to play and we will help you out.

I'm bumping this up because I may or may not include a something special so if I include a something please send me a private message. I love when there are lots of us swapping and know that when I receive just a card from all you talented folks, I'm thankful that my mail is not bills!
