I've been asked this question a bunch by my friends and family since I'm involved in the KKEXNMORE Yahoo group, which swaps loomed/handcrafted items, AND I've been involved in several Craftster.org swaps.
Personally, I'm thrilled to get mail. Any mail. It doesn't matter if I'm getting postcards for selling my non-existent ugly house, I just like to get stuff. But the best mail is by other crafters - you know how much work they put into it! I've gotten a few bad ones here and there. But overall, I've been thrilled with what I've received.
Anyway, for your viewing pleasure, some pics from the various swaps I've been in:
I have a disease, round 2, where you named a disease and your partner crafts items for you based on it.
Little Visitor, where a small creature comes to visit you and you send one in return"
Disney Round 5(minus my dalmatian LOL), where you named your favorite movies and crafted items based on them.
