The Never Ending Swap
Saturday, January 19, 2008
As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu

In Islam, a gift is of extraordinary value.. not because of the cost, or the item, or the size.. but because it was given with good intentions.. be it just a smile, or kind word. Here is another chance to purify our intentions, by giving with an open heart and receiving with open arms.

Details of swap: List four items in the Comments section of what you are willing to send to someone (store bought or handmade), keeping the description vague (to keep it a surprise), include your email address.

The next person will tag you for one of your items (and email you with their mailing address), they will also put up a list of 4 more items, and their email address.
Note: You can only pick from the last person in line.


  • List 4 items (vague description).
  • Include your email address.

  • Next Person:
  • Tag you for one of your items. (email you with their address)
  • List 4 items (vague description)
  • Include email address.

  • Keep it fun!

    Participants allowed: International (open to Females only please).

    Ages allowed: All ages.

    Cost Limit: $3 maximum.


  • Gifts should be sent out within 2 weeks!!!
  • Email ME ( once you receive AND send out something. I will keep record right on this post so others know what is going on. (2 weeks and no mention of shipping out, automatically puts you on the 'flakers' list).
  • You can participate more than once.
  • Note: If your post gets deleted (by me) it means you can not participate - because you haven't sent out a gift from previous swaps.
