This is a 10/10 or 20/20 swap





Paper Napkin/Serviette Swap


My name is Lisa and I am addicted to paper napkins/serviettes. Therefore I would like (read NEED) to add to my collection and require some fellow addicts to enable me ;)

For those of you who have not yet indulged in this passion please feel free to begin now.:D

It's a pretty simple swap send in 10 (the same design OR a variety, but 10 total) and I will send you 10 back. They can be the smaller cocktail size or the larger dinner size - I will try and send you back the size you sent in). Update - if you want to send in 2 lots that's okay - 20 in - 20 back to you

I am not going to limit the number who would like to swap and only ask if you can send US$1.00 to help with return postage I would be eternally grateful.

Send a large address label for your returns

Please only send really nice designer 3-ply napkins not cheap ones. Here is one that I bought today (they had packets of 20 for $2.00 how could I walk by???):D The pictures are from the same serviette - (it was too big to scan in one go)

Who will help feed my addiction?????

Chardonnay1965
07-11-2009, 02:14 AM
what shop was it??

jonquil
07-11-2009, 02:14 AM
I think if people want to send in two lots and get 20 back that would be okay - will add that in the first post

jonquil
07-11-2009, 02:15 AM

I don't think they have caught on yet or they would cost more!!!! Let's keep it to ourselves

HHC
07-11-2009, 02:26 AM
Cool serviettes, jonquil. I'll send 20 too.

So quick question... American dollars are okay to send for postage?

jonquil
07-11-2009, 02:30 AM
American dollars are perfect

tattiekite
07-11-2009, 06:47 AM
OOh, yes please I too am a napkin addict. Bought 20 packs in an outlet shop the other day (in the North of Scotland) I think the assistant thought I was a little odd as when she asked if I was having a party I replied that I used them for artistic purposes.

jonquil
07-11-2009, 07:10 AM
I am so with you on that one - welcome to the program:D

corrie04
07-11-2009, 07:47 AM
I'd love to join, too - especially since I have a hard time finding them around here. I picked up a couple of packets while in Indy for the AFA09, but I'm definitely need more variety.

Quick question. I have some beautiful butterfly ones, but have already peeled off the 2 extra layers. Is that still okay to send in? Or would you prefer that I send in only the ones with the 3 layers still intact?

jonquil
07-11-2009, 07:56 AM
the ones with the two layers already peeled off is fine with me - we ditch that bit anyway:D and I love butterfly ones - and we definitely want you to increase your collection

jonquil
07-11-2009, 07:56 AM
i really like the colours in this one

another of my purchases today - that means there are only two left for you to see (plus all the others!!!!!

jonquil
07-11-2009, 08:08 AM
this is one I have had for a little while - all the ones I post will be the ones I am swapping

Hmmmm... I just picked up some nifty floral napkins from the sale bin at Target, sort of a Cezanne look.... I think I need to be in this swap!

jonquil
07-11-2009, 09:44 AM
Hmmmmm I think you might be right Penlowe - *whispers you are getting sleepy :sleep:- when you wake up you will want napkins* ;)

Penlowe
07-11-2009, 09:50 AM
What about stuff like crazy polka dots or other very-colorful but not necessarily 'arty' or pictorial napkins? There is a closeout place near here and they always have great stuff. I'll dig out a sample....

T*Time
07-11-2009, 10:05 AM
Ooooo - count me in!

shoreart
07-11-2009, 10:25 AM
Okay, add me in please.

Penlowe
07-11-2009, 02:08 PM
Ok, so just shuffling through my pantry & what I bought a couple days ago- seven different prints of napkins, :wubclub: ready to mail! I think I have your addy already, I'll PM you if I don't.

After I set up a couple of trades for napkins in the ATART-a-thon I found a store that had a bunch of christmas napkins on clearance. So you can sign me up if you all interested in Christmas in July?????

jonquil
07-13-2009, 04:50 PM
Christmas in July sounds fabulous - welcome to the swap

Tamrantula
07-13-2009, 10:34 PM
I would love to sign up--found some cute Easter bunnies at the thrift store....if we can have Christmas, can we have easter? LOL

I am sure I others I can throw in, also!

jonquil
07-13-2009, 10:56 PM
variety is the spice of life:D Welcome Tam

Tamrantula
07-13-2009, 11:10 PM
Cool! I went looking in my box where I have put all the napkins I have gathered from thrift stores since we did the GAT last, and I got hooked on them...


Here is what I found:

Well, darn...says upload failed...tried several times...will have to add to gallery and try that way

Well, couldn't upload there either.

Tried uploading using a different program with my camera...so, here goes another try:

Well, crap....guess tomorrow I gotta try re-installing my new software for my new camera!

Darn! LOL

Looks like a lot of Pacific Northwesterners are in love with napkins!! (cuz we use them more often to daintily wipe our mouths after swilling large quantities of Starbucks lattes)
Mine are in the mail today ... 2 each of 5 designs, and 10 of another.
Now the 2 month wait ......... oh the agony! ... where's my latte???

corrie04
07-14-2009, 05:16 PM
LOL @ Jaw.

jonquil
07-15-2009, 05:24 PM
I am going back to the shop I found a plethora of serviettes in to buy a few more packets - at $2.00 for 20 quality ones how can I walk by!!!!! There was an online shop in the US that I looked at but unfortunately they don't ship to Australia (which is probably just as well);)

Penlowe
07-15-2009, 05:48 PM
I mailed today. I am teasing you all by not posting pictures, but I'll tell you there are seven different prints.

jonquil
07-15-2009, 06:17 PM
woohoo goody:D

corrie04
07-15-2009, 09:48 PM
what was the online shop address? I would like to take a peek!

HHC
07-15-2009, 10:41 PM
I've picked out 5 each of 4 different patterns... but am shopping tomorrow so will wait to mail for a couple of days... just in case I find something I like even better. haha! I'm also sending an array of my favs for our hostess.

And, for the record... this Pacific Northwest person drinks tea, which can also require the dainty use of of a napkin/serviette. ;)

Tamrantula
07-15-2009, 10:44 PM
Whoo Hoo--another NW tea drinker! I can't STAND coffee! LOL

Anyway...went to the thrift store again today...found a couple really neat packs of napkins...one that is animal print, and one that is Asian

Will be sending off on my next day off--Prob Saturday!

jonquil
07-15-2009, 11:49 PM
I can't remember the address for the shop - will check back in one of the older threads as I think it might be there

Trinasatc's
07-16-2009, 12:35 AM
Tamrantula, Asian? You are such a tease .....we want pictures.The thought that I might be able to find some Asian napkins never crossed my mind, now I am going to have to look for some.

Tamrantula
07-16-2009, 02:04 AM
Wish I could post pics. I got a new camera, and uploaded the software...now, the site won't upload the pics. Not sure what the deal is--or why it won't work. Sigh

Penlowe
07-16-2009, 08:35 AM
The pictures are probably too big. Better cameras default picture size is really big (my true size is like 45 inches by 34 inches- huge!). You can use photoshop or any other editing software to resize them smaller before uploading them. I use Irfanview because it's free and really, really simple.

Ok--you just went over my tech-challenged head! LOL

I don't have any idea how to resize pics--sigh!

Penlowe
07-16-2009, 10:27 PM
Oh I'm right there with ya, but once I learn it, I got it :)
What kind of camera did you get? some come with editing software, most come with album & organization garbage.

jonquil
07-17-2009, 08:14 AM
I bought 8 packets at $2.00 each - plenty to swap out now :D I did also make some art with them as well - the petal skirts of my petite paper dolls are serviettes over stamped script

tattiekite
07-18-2009, 09:17 AM
jonquil, forgot to say that mine went in mail yesterday - 20 different (10 large and 10 cocktail)- I added in a few extra (for you).

corrie04
07-18-2009, 03:06 PM
Jonquil - Mine will be in the mail on Monday or Tuesday. I'm also doing 20 and throwing in a couple extra for you.

Has your address changed?

jaw
07-18-2009, 05:48 PM
So I actually got mine to the post office today (the neighborhood postal station couldn't take it 'cuz it weighed too much - had to go to the downtown main post office ... apparently I added a few too many hostess goodies ... but our lovely hostess is worth it!!!! )

jonquil
07-18-2009, 06:24 PM
thank you:wub:

Penlowe

07-19-2009, 01:53 PM
I found a "series" of those kleenex-type napkins and couldn't send just one! looking at how it just put it into the next "weight class" I shoulda just sent an ATC! LOL!!

corrie04
07-19-2009, 03:02 PM
Mine are going out in tomorrow's mail.

HHC
07-19-2009, 03:09 PM
Quick question, I have a couple styles with scrolls, one in black and one in gold. I use them a lot in layering... are you all interested in those?
I would send 5 of each, plus 5 each of some with more picture type patterns.

Tamrantula
07-19-2009, 03:27 PM
They sound great to me for layering the backgrounds!

jonquil
07-19-2009, 05:17 PM
I like the scroll idea very much

Tamrantula
07-19-2009, 05:49 PM
As promised, here are pics of a couple types of napkins I found. There are the animal print and the Asian:

Ibus
07-20-2009, 08:15 PM
I bought more today, so I'll get them off to you this week.

jaw
07-20-2009, 08:21 PM
Ibus ~ your mood is "depressed" ... don't be depressed! Should I email you stupid jokes? I would dance for you if you were closer! (that would surely make you laugh) ... Smile little stitchwitch! We love you!!!!!

jonquil
07-20-2009, 08:39 PM
Awesome Ibus and I second jaw's remarks - remember you have serviettes:D

Ibus
07-21-2009, 10:40 AM
Thanks you two, you made me laugh and cry! :eek: Which just goes to show what a mess I'm in emotionally. It's a long time since I've been this low and it's seriously the pits. I feel useless and helpless and nothing seems to help. :(

My napkins were posted today, there's ten of one kind and then two other patterns (I can't remember how many of each, but it's more than ten together) I couldn't make up my mind which of the three I bought yesterday to send, so this way you got some of each :)

Linda4atc
07-21-2009, 11:49 AM
Ohh Ibus hugs going your way!!!!

Question I know you said it was ok if the layers were seperated.... But is there anyone who prefers we do not seperate them??? I don't have to , but I have seperated all the nampkins I recieved in trades and it does lower the bulk and probably the weight for mailing considerably.

jaw
07-21-2009, 12:20 PM
OMG ... what a smart idea ... I wasn't paying attention! (that would've saved me a few bucks) ... Although one of my napkins you can use the top two layers!!! rather exciting I think!! ...

NancyL
07-21-2009, 05:25 PM
Hilo must sell fancy napkins somewhere. Hilo is the second largest town in the state.
I do have party napkins but nothing fancy. I'm gojng napking-hunting on Friday when i actually will ahve $ in case I am successful.

jonquil
07-21-2009, 08:19 PM
Good luck Nancy - there are serviettes out there just waiting for you:D

camcas
07-22-2009, 09:40 AM
do you still have spots Lisa-I've just started to get into serviettes??and of course you are in my neck of the woods

jonquil
07-22-2009, 04:52 PM
camcas - the more addicted the merrier:twitcy: welcome - it won't be long till your collection is 'expanded'

jonquil
07-22-2009, 04:57 PM
A question for all you addicts - I was thinking about the returns and the idea of removing the two white layers would mean a lot less in return postage - is there anyone who would be adverse to me doing this? If you would like all your layers that's fine - just thought I would run it by you all - I get rid of the other layers fairly quickly as it means I can store heaps more:D

jonquil
07-22-2009, 05:01 PM
Out of curiosity how many different serviettes do you have - I am off to count - can't you tell I have nothing better to do!!!!!:D

tattiekite
07-22-2009, 05:13 PM
How dim of me not to have thought of disposing of the redundant layers before sending all that extra bumph to you. I am very happy to receive just the "top" layer, though it does mean more work for you, Lisa. I've just counted up 63 different serviettes - which I am sure is a paltry amount compared to some collections.

Ibus
07-22-2009, 05:26 PM
I don't mind you removing them, if you don't mind doing it Jonquil. Having just had a hissy fit about people not reading swop instructions (I mean really, how difficult is it to stick to two colours? :twitcy:) I've just realised I forgot to put the money for postage in with my serviettes :eek:

jonquil
07-22-2009, 05:58 PM
:twitcy: we all do it sometimes - I once printed off returns address labels for swaps and sent off about 6 envies before I realised that I had typed my postcode incorrectly:rolleyes:

jaw
07-22-2009, 06:22 PM
Jonquil ~ I think that's a great idea. Although one of the serviettes I sent you can use the top 2 layers. You'll see that I am sure... It's cool to be able to use the "ghost" image sometimes. Alot of others they must print before layering. I need to see if Mr. Roger's has a video of how "napkins" are built. LOL

jonquil
07-22-2009, 06:43 PM
it's not too much work if I do it as they come in

okay have counted up my dinner napkins - I have 111 different patterns but 475 in total (I have a few packs of 20)

now to the cocktail ones:eek:

jonquil
07-22-2009, 06:52 PM
I also have about 20 dinner ones that have had sections used already

I'm sorry Lisa but i'm going to have to drop from this swap. I;m having problems with my eyes right now.

camcas
07-22-2009, 08:44 PM
I am happy to send tops only -i have 23 differnet ones-a babe in the woods i reckon!!

HHC
07-22-2009, 09:59 PM
Well, I'm okay with just receiving the tops. And am happy to separate them before hand so you don't have to. :)

jonquil
07-22-2009, 09:59 PM
no worries ADS - look after yourself

jonquil
07-22-2009, 10:04 PM
HHC - if you want to separate them before you send that would be great

Linda4atc
07-24-2009, 09:32 AM
I'll seperate mine as well. I haven't mailed them out yet because I was going to go look for more. I have 8 different packages, and probably about 30 singles I traded for just before or during the ATART-a thon

mrubyjean
07-24-2009, 12:09 PM
Well, I'm okay with just receiving the tops. And am happy to separate them before hand so you don't have to. :)

Me, too...both ways!

I'll be sending mine the first of August when I am back from vacation (at a MI library rigt now...couldn't stay away!) Am hoping to find some cool napkins on my trip!

smokeysmom
07-24-2009, 01:56 PM
I'm away visiting with my folks until August 21st, but I would still love to participate in this napkin swap! I love beautiful paper napkins! I love to collage with them. I'll be scouting out some lovelies while I'm away and will send them to you when I return home:) So please sign me up!

jonquil
07-24-2009, 04:28 PM
welcome smokeysmom - glad you can join us

Sue W
07-24-2009, 06:12 PM
I'm ready to send mine ... I'll more than happy to take off the top layers. ;)

jonquil
07-24-2009, 06:32 PM
Awesome Sue - thank you

Linda4atc
07-24-2009, 10:04 PM
I couldn't resist. Since I only had 8 packages of napkins I went out and got two more. So I can send two each of 10 different ones, plus something for hostess of course!


Ok just making sure... we are removing BOTH extra layers?

jonquil
07-25-2009, 12:08 AM
going out and buying more to swap - hmmmmmm definitely an addict:D


that's right - both the extra layers

Linda4atc
07-25-2009, 12:17 AM
Well before the ATART-a-thon I didn't really have any napkins. now I have plenty but I'll probably have trouble bringing myself to use several that I traded for because I only have one of each.

jonquil
07-25-2009, 12:24 AM
I got one in a swap and I have used every square inch of it to make backgrounds - managed to get quite a few out of it - some of my CAT cards are made with it

While all you napkin-collectors are floating around, can you throw out some ideas/ways to use napkins? I was in this swap but dropped out but the napkin-fairy found me and I want to play with what came my way.
I have used napkins with wax. It was like magic. I am guessing glue or gel would work in much the same way? and being lightweight, layering could be a lot of fun?
Next time I'm in California, I will pick up some fancy napkins so I can be ready for another round of napking swapping.

NancyL
08-03-2009, 08:56 PM
I did find shopcocktailnapkins.com which had some nice napking selections...but thenI would have to pay for shipping to Hawaii and then still have to mail to Jonquil. But I liked their patterns.

NancyL
08-03-2009, 10:44 PM
Jonquil, I hope you are feeling better soon and get to come home.

due to a variety of circumstances, I would like to sign up for this swap again. I have never been so wishy-washy with any of these swaps before.
Between napkins gotten from a friend and the Napkin-Fairy, I do have enough fancier napkins to send out. So, would you add me (again)? I promise to stay with it this time. Really.

jonquil
08-04-2009, 04:11 AM
NancyL welcome back - juat wait till this swap is finished - there are some awesome serviettes - I would love to keep them all;) the returns are definitely going to get those creative juices flowing

Sue W
08-04-2009, 05:30 AM
Have mine arrived yet?

jonquil
08-04-2009, 07:32 AM
They have indeed Sue - just getting to grips with the absolute mountain of mail that arrived while I was in hospital - there are about 50 envelopes/packets to sort out so I am just doing them one by one so I don':Dt miss anyone

Penlowe
08-04-2009, 08:47 AM
Yay you are home!
Don't over do it :) I'm really glad napkins are light weight, it would be terrible to come home to 50 packages of bricks.
Ya okay I need more coffee, I don't think my humor is working yet this morning...

08-05-2009, 01:34 PM

jonquil
08-05-2009, 05:01 PM
Nancy I just checked out that shop - IT IS THE ONE!!!! Unfortunately they don't send international but I may have to find a fellow addict who can order them for me and ships them to Australia???? I saw at least 10 packets I would want and probably more:swoon:

jonquil

Penlowe
08-13-2009, 11:18 PM

08-14-2009, 01:56 PM
Thank you, local shop had wonderful napkins /servietttes could not decide what to choose from so I picked to sets of classic black and white. Boring I know but they have a very pretty design.

mrubyjean
08-14-2009, 03:50 PM
I like black and white...often the designs can be striking against a colorful background!

jonquil
08-14-2009, 04:55 PM
Trina - the black and white ones are far from boring :D- wait till you see them - they are going to make fantastic backgrounds believe me.
