Many of us planner addicts are part of a huge community on Facebook and Instagram and take part in planner swaps.
This is when two people from different places world wide swap planner goodies with each other.
It is a fantastic way of spreading the planner love, sending items to people who may not otherwise ever get their hands on some of the items they receive.
Been from the UK I am always on the lookout for swaps in other countries, particularly in the U.S of A.
I recently took part in some swaps and on Saturday finally received my items.
The first swap was with a wonderful lady In Canada. I was amazed by what she had sent me. There were some Kate Spade paperclips, beautiful notebook, Heidi Swapp accessories, magnetic bookmarks, initialled notecards and some Disney washi rolls (Frozen, Disney Pricesses, Spiderman and Minnie Mouse). Not only that but I was also sent some Canada sweeties and crisps! I am really looking forward to trying those.
The 2nd parcel that arrived was from Texas in the U.S again I got lucky with another amazing lady. This also blew my mind. There was so much too it. So many items, Heidi Swapp accessories, skinny washi, sprinkle washi, expanding folder, sticky notes, dashboard dividers for both my Standard and field note TN’s, paperclips and about a million washi samples!
I would recommend taking part in swaps 100% I love all the items I was sent and probably would never have any of them without this. It is also really fun buying things for someone else, thinking about what they may like or what may excite them.
It can take a good few weeks for items to arrive over the distance but it is well worth the wait 🙂
For those who maybe interested in participating in some swaps or want to get a better idea of how they work thw group Planner Swaps International on Facebook are a great group to join.
Enjoy and Have Fun,
