Comment: I never received anything. Tried to contact, but you aren't here for a long time now and it seems to me that you flaked me... It's been over 4 months since you suppose to send and I sent you a private message 2 weeks ago asking about the swap. It isn't even read.
Comment: Well, This is the very first time I have to give a 1 rating, and it suck... I`ve send a message in februari 27, to ask what you`ve send for this swap to make sure I didnt forget to rate. Recieved a message back that you would check when you got home. Next message recieved was on march 7, with the description of what you have send. I messaged back the same day to tell you I did not recieve this. This message is still unread. I wil gladly change this rating in a 3 when I recieve something.
Comment: Man this stinks that I'm rating a 1. =( I still have not received this swap even after contacting in December. I am sure its an accident. I WILL change this rating if anything is received. I am sorry I had to give this low rating.
Response: I would have appreciated a msg 1st. Would be happy to resend.
Comment: I have not received anything from you despite my contacting you and you stating you were going to resend the swap. If it arrives, I will re-rate you at that time. I really do not like giving out bad rates. I have received this swap~ I really like the card, it is a great card! Thanks for sending a third time. I never did receive the other two cards. Happy swapping to you......
Response: I did send! All I can do re-send with tracking.
Comment: Thank you so much for the cute little card and sticker! And it's funny you should mention "My Favorite Murder" because I just recently came across their podcast! That is so cool that you got to watch them live!! :D
Comment: I enjoyed reading about your fun weekend! Sounds like you got to do a lot of fun things!! I have never heard of Stella & Dot before. I'm sorry. Is there a website where I can read more about your duo? Hope you have a great Holiday season.Thank you for the cute pumpkin postcard!
Comment: Mailman just dropped off the cute snail mail card :) fun goodies inside too! My hubby was glad the Astros won too...he would of rooted for whatever team that wasn't the Dodgers haha Thank you for the cute card and goodies :)
Response: Glad you liked it! It felt like the whole country was routing for us... maybe they were all just anti-dodger. ðŸ˜
Comment: Finally! Cool air! I practically could have a walk in refrigerator put in to sleep in, so I'm not terribly fond of the heat. I'm as South as I could bear to live. I am so happy some fall arrived at last. Of course, as soon as it got to 65Âº (and therefore tolerable) folks around here busted out their winter coats.
Comment: Your card arrived today thank you. I loved how passiomaye you are about the team you follow. I support a team called Castleford Tigers and we are really pasionate about them, our season ended in October and we had an amazing season. If you get a spare five minutes and fancy a quick read have a quick read off google, im sure you will enjoy reading about us x
Response: Does it normally take 2 weeks +? Did I have the addresss right? Sorry if I delayed it in error. Here is a nice follow-up: We won the World Series! 1st time ever and such a nice boost for our hurricane ravaged city. I wil definitely take a look at the Tigers!
Comment: Fun stuff-lots of stuff I can use in my art. My favorite thing that you sent was actually the note paper you sent your note on-Mr. Rogers-I did a page in my art journal about him and now I can add this in too! Thanks for sharing!
Response: Glad you liked it, I love those sticky notes.
Comment: What a nice card! makes me want to break out the cricket and get to crafting :) oh my gosh 82F is like a hot sunny day ha! My hubby has a friend in Florida that keeps her A/C on at cool 62F - where we heat ours up to 62F to be warm hhaha crazy :) Thank you for the beautiful card :)
Comment: Thank you for the adorable card! Cooler temps, what are those?! Haha. Fall is one of the biggest things I miss about living up north. It's still 92 degrees here. Although, this weekend my sister-in-law, niece and our friends and I are going to a pumpkin patch so maybe it will finally feel like fall. Thank you again. Hope all is well and that you're enjoying your fall.
Comment: Thank you for sharing and THANK YOU for rescuing! Our puppers is a 3 year old jack russell / chihuahua mix who lived far too long in a shelter. Avery is beautiful and I'm glad she found a loving home. :D
Comment: Send date was 3/8, you marked it sent 3/3 during the time you said you would be inactive according to your profile. I waited, but messaged you on 3/22 that it had not been received and asked if you had proof of mailing for me to track. You said you would check on that so I waited some more. That was 2 weeks ago and I haven't heard back from you.
Response: I just sent you a message and hope to hear from you soon.
Comment: Will gladly re-rate when the item is received. I've waited a month for this item (according to when you marked it sent) and didn't get a response to a message sent last week.
Response: UPDATE: I just looked at my sent folder and it seems I sent you the same message 5 times! even though I got the html error. I am so sorry!
I keep trying to message you and get this- This page isnâ€™t working

Comment: 2/25/14: Reluctantly changing the rating to a 3 since I did finally receive the swap items last week (almost 14 months past the due date). While I give her credit for finally resolving this, I was expected to come online immediately to change the rating (and she messaged me several times) but did not give me the courtesy to see why I hadn't come on (I had no computer for over a week due to a windows crash). I waited 14 months for the items, waiting a week for a rerate was not out of line (perhaps I was away, or sick/hurt like she was last year when the swap was due).
1/27/14: Was asked again to rerate but swap items still have not been received after numerous promises. It is now 13 months after the swap and unfortunately either the post office has lost numerous swaps or they have not been sent. Perhaps when resending lost swaps one should use delivery tracking/confirmation to ensure that they are received.
12/16/13: Cannot rerate as items were never received.
Unfortunately, almost two months after the swap ended I still have not received my items. I was told another package would be sent, but not yet :-(. Will rerate if I ever receive the cards.
Tracking Number for the third send: 9114901230801797610625
I am glad you finally got them. I am sorry if you feel my one email only asking if you received them, since we had an issue with that before as well as a delay with the post office, was inappropriate.
All the best to you.
Comment: It's here! And well worth the wait! We have quite a few likes in common, so I'll be looking into some of those books and bands you mentioned. We also have a puppy, and about to get a second one - they're only 7 months apart.
Response: Yay! I'm glad you found things that interest you. Gotta love puppies, wish I'd known mine when they were really little. Enjoy!
Comment: You sent a lot of great stuff that I can see using in the future. Love the black-white damask paper and the teal paper-together I think would be super. Thanks for all the ribbons and little embellishments-like sticking them in my crop bag when I go to scrapbook week-ends where I work on my swaps! I've got one coming up this week-end -scrap for the heart is the theme! Thanks for sharing!
Response: So glad you liked your kit! Thanks for joining Monthly Kit Swap.
Comment: Thank you so much for the card. It was lovely. I made mine too & now, I'm afraid people will be disappointed. I'm nowhere near as talented as you. Thank you for sharing with me!! The stickers were lovely too. Happy Valentine's Day.
Response: What a nice compliment. I'm sure yours are lovely!
Comment: You KNOW when I saw the Kermit THE Frog PEZ I got chills! OMG...he was THE Cutest EVER! I loved PEZ candy & dispensers when I was a kid...brought back so MANY memories! Then the last thing I opened...the pink mirror compact...I totally GASPED! Took my breath away. Absolutely BEAUTIFUL! Thanks soooooo much! I adored the PINK stuff! Perfect Package for Me! :)
Response: Glad you liked the package. Thanks for the nice rating.
Comment: Loved your picks for me! Well I can tell you the peppermint bark is already gone. I ate that while reading your note:-). I loved the stickers, candy, and lovely notecards and the book.... I love, love, love...totally my kind of read and honestly I'm psyched that this one has a heroine that's older than sixteen! Thank you so much for such a wonderfully thoughtful package:-D.
Response: I'm so glad you liked it! The heroine was one of the main reason I picked up The Unit to begin with. While I love the new trend in YA, I miss the old school adult Dystopia and I am always on the hunt. Let me know what you think.
Comment: thank you so so so much for your adorable lotssss of paper goodies >o< i love the art so much and all little goodies in the little bags so cute. this is one of my favourite parcel that i've ever got from the swapping. Thank you ! <3
Response: That is just want you want to read when swapping! Glad you liked every thing.
Comment: GREAT PACKAGE...would SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO love to have the rest of that book! Amazing how my kids and I were just talking about the subject of Heaven and this "scrap of a book" helped me to explain "the judgement" more clearly! Thanks so very much for everything! :)
Response: I'm sorry I did not see this sooner. I'm glad they liked it! Sadly the rest of the book was ruined by my teething pup. That's why I was able to rip pages from it. :)
Comment: I would say goat stew. We were in Jamaica and that was served one evening for dinner.
You forgot to put the name of the swap on your postcard. No big deal but it does make it easier to find when people go to rate. Thanks for swapping!
Comment: After you said you had sent out two packages, wich I never received. I told you to not bother and send yet another replacement swap. You said you would. Call it miss-communication. I rated you a 1 back in januari, which wasn't convenient for you since you were in an airport. So I pulled the 1 rating. But now I see a pattern of a lot of none send items. So I am rating this swap to let other people know this is happening more often. If you still decide to resend something I will adjust the rating.
add 5 march: since the send date of this swap was 5th of november I don't see why the holidays were a problem for a resend. And yes you were right the other low ratings in the pattern started later. I am sorry for your personal issues and I hope you will feel better soon.
5/4: Thank you very much for the resent 5 months past the due date. None of the items were on my wishlist but I'm not going to be picky. It speaks for you that you are trying to make up. I hope your health improves soon. Take care
Comment: I received a message 2/7/13 that my card would be going in the mail the next day, with an apology for it being late. I haven't received it as of 2/26/13, so am rating for now and will re-rate if/when I receive it.
Update: I received it 3/14/13, so am re-rating this to a 3.
Response: You should have received it by now, I hope. Please let me know.
Comment: You've been deleting my profile comments about whether or not you've received the letter that I sent to you, and you haven't read my PM either... so maybe this 1 rating will get your attention? I'm sorry that you're going through some tough times, but you need to contact your partners now that you're back. Let me know if you decide to resend. Update: This swap arrived about a month and a half after the send-by date. Thank you for sending.
Response: sent swap and rated you. sorry for the delay!
Comment: My partner did send the packet on time, but for some reason I never received. it. She kindly re-sent it (already last year,I think!) and I didn't receive the re-sent either. I wondered, how this can be?? So I sent her a message again about this issue and she promised to re-sent it one last time. All of a sudden, today I finally got the second packet she sent me already quite a long time ago. The first packet she had sent me back in November, was returned her for some reason.
All in all it took nearly four months to receive this swap! However, we had a good communication and the chocolates are so great!!! Thank you!
Response: I'm glad finally got it! My post office said it might have had to do with customs or how it was labelled. I have learned a lot about sending anything more than letter overseas now!
Comment: Will re-rate if I receive anything.
3/10 update: received valentine card. Had no contact from sender. Will change from 1 to 3.
3/11 update: in response to your comment - you sent me a PM on 2/7 which I read and replied to, however, you indicated that although it was marked sent on 2/4 you were actually sending out on 2/8. There was no contact to indicate any other delay.
Comment: This is the 2nd of two swaps I haven't received though you've marked it sent 2 Weeks ago. I'll rerate when I receive. (2/23/13) UPDATED 3/4/13: Thank you! Received this swap today! I really appreciate it! :) UPDATED 3/5/13: #1 - I don't appreciate your PM which had a tone of trying to guilt me into giving you better than 3 rating when you ended your PM telling me you were "very disappointed" and that "I definitely thought you would be a kinder person." I AM a kind person. Giving you a fair rating according to SB rules does not make me unkind. Even you say in your Profile "I give 3 only if something is late ..." I received your swaps over 3 weeks late, one over 4 weeks late. #2 - You said "As know you noticed, it clearly states on my profile to email me if you have any issues. I never saw your side bar note til today so I had no idea you left one, because again, it clearly says to email/message me." Don't assume you KNOW anything. Nowhere did I read on your Profile to PM or email you. Your profile states to "let you know" if we haven't received something from you. I chose to leave a Comment. Interestingly, you have since yesterday deleted that Feb 16th Comment along with others' Comments indicating swaps not received. #3 - You didn't "spring for expedited shipping" on my package like you said in your PM. It cost you $2.75 to send 2 swaps in one package.
So yes, I am a kind person. I'm kind enough to not misrepresent you to other swappers and hosts by giving you a 5 when you marked Sent over a month ago, didn't communicate with me even after I left 1 ratings on 2/20 and 2/23, and you just now mailed these swaps on 3/2/13, telling me you sent them with "expedited shipping" when in fact it was simply 1st Class shipping. UPDATE #2 3/5/13: Don't misrepresent the situation and say I did not contact you before rating. I left a Comment on your Profile on 2/16. You did not respond. (And you deleted this Comment on 3/4/13.) I left appropriate ratings on 2/20 and 2/23. You didn't respond. I upgraded your ratings on 3/4 and thanked you for your swaps I received. THEN you sent me a PM expressing your disappointment and accused me of being unkind. What else could you have been disappointed in and considered unkind but those 3s? Because I have been nothing but kind to you in my original Comment on 2/16 and even in my two 1 ratings to you. The only time you can even suggest I was "unkind" was when I responded firmly to your inappropriate PM. And even then I have been kind. You did not say you didn't deserve those 3s but you didn't say you did deserve them either. You did say I was unkind. And you did say you were disappointed. The entire purpose of your rude PM was to guilt me into changing your 3's to 5's. I rarely leave 3s and when I do, I'm tired of receiving inappropriate PMs implying I should change my rating. So if it's unkind to say so, then I'm unkind for saying so. But other than that, I've been nothing but kind to you trying to let you know at 2 weeks that I had not received your swap, and at 4 weeks, leaving 1 ratings promising to change it when I received the swaps, which I did immediately when I received them yesterday.UPDATE #3 3/5/13: You can call me "unbalanced" but I assure you I am not. What I am is tired of swappers who try to guilt other swappers in giving them 5s and then when that doesn't work, they accuse the rater of being unbalanced or any other means to discredit the rater. This is why swappers are afraid of giving appropriate 3's or even 1's because of swappers who send them PMs and call them names and try to deflect other swappers from the main issue. But I will stand firm and not be bullied down by name calling. You should have just accepted your 3's and not sent me that PM. Please reconsider a similar PM to your other 1 raters if they upgrade only to a 3 when they receive. UPDATED 3/6/13: I will continue to defend myself against your accusations if you want to keep making them. This is ridiculous that this is all stemming from my 3 ratings to you! You accuse me of having altered my original response, and that is not true. Show me what you are talking about. I have kept a copy of your rating screen each time it has been updated, as I've had to defend myself against your accusations where you call me unbalanced, incoherent, immature. I also take issue with you implying that I have been contacting you and that you had to block me. I have not "contacted" you in any way except HERE in this rating to defend myself against your accusations and my "3" ratings. And I do that because you continue to make personal attacks against me in your rating comments. The issue was and still is that I upgraded my 1's to 3's, not 5's, and you were "disappointed" and thought I would be kinder. And from there you have done nothing but call me names and imply I've done things I have not. Please stop and go on. You're getting some lovely ratings on other late swaps, so let this one go. You can delete it at the end of the year in Rachel's charity drive.
Response: Wow. Again Wow. No where in that message did I say I did not deserve a 3. However it CLEARLY says to message me in my profile AND I kept updating my page as well. Which you did not do and rated me without contacting me. I hope you never in my position. But when you are, hopefully people will be kinder to you than you have been to me. Also parcel post without confirmation would have been $1.10. The difference is a lot to me, as I am on medical leave with partial pay. No need to keep "updating". I will not enter a swap you are in again. My response: Again I in no way wanted you to give me anything other than a 3. Don't assume just bc that is how you think that that was my intention. especially when my own guide to rating is clearly on my proflie. Second I'm starting to feel, based on your extreme response, that you are unbalanced so I request that you stop contacting me. As said before I will not enter a swap with you. 03/05/13: I find the fact the fact that you altered your original incoherent response very disturbing. This three is valid and I never claimed otherwise (see my own rating system on my profile which backs me up. I see you don't have one on yours). However your instances on citing whatever happened to you in the past when responding to me shows your immaturity. I also I have asked several times that you stop contacting me and have blocked you from doing so. Please stop abusing the rating system.
Comment: Putting this 1 as a holder. I realize profile indicates some medical issues. However, this is 1 of 2 swaps that I haven't received though they've both been marked "Sent". This swap was marked Sent 2/4/13, and the other swap was marked sent 2/9/13. It is 2/20/13 and we both live in the States. Of course I am happy to change the rating as soon as the swap is received. (2/20/13) UPDATED 3/4/13: Thank you! I received this today! Very pretty notecards!
Comment: Thank you for your lovely Christmas paper scraps card. I'm glad you enjoyed the swap. I'll see what I can do for more scraps cards in the new year. P.S. Thank you for the pumpkin spice tea too!
Comment: Wow I actually got 2 great things from my profile, Such a generous swap Thanks for the Titanic puzzle and especially the Ziegfeld girls paper Dolls How lucky I am and you deserve 50 hearts!! I've been sending my partner little gifts in the mail several times,then I'll pick out something nice for the last.What fun this swap was!! Happy holidays!! Thanks again 50 hearts!
Response: Glad you liked them both. Happy Holidays.
Comment: Thank you so much for the fun Santa postcard!! I would love to do a swap with you sometime! I enjoy meeting new people and have made some wonderful friendships just from doing prayer swaps or sharing our favorite quotes :)
Response: Glad you liked it. I'll check back with you are pvt swapping in the new year. Happy Holidays!
Comment: Ok couldnt wait till christmas. Men are like kids. He loved it. Yes that is a cool container. He couldnt stop playing with the star trax viewer. Batman sticker awesome. Thank you so much for making his day. Merry christmas. ( where did you find sticker we never saw them would love to get another )
Response: Glad he liked everything! We found it a local record store/surf shop here called Soundwaves.
Comment: None of the links worked for me because sites like Spotify aren't open to The Bahamas (probably good for you to note for future swaps with people outside of the US), but I have some faves on your list, so I searched the others on Youtube. Good stuff! Thanks for sharing!
Comment: Thanks for the card. I found an apothecary chest a few years ago that I absolutely love. I keep candles and votives in the drawers. My school finally got out library on line and they were throwing the card catalogue drawers out which I scored. Its in pretty bad shape but nothing that can't be fixed.. Wish I could ship it to you.-o)
Response: You're welcome! That's cool that you've got an apothecary chest. We are still looking. I'll have to start stalking libraries soon. lol.
Comment: Love the vintage look postcard that you sent. (Still trying to figure out the pig with Santa and the angel... LOL!) Good luck in achieving your continent goal... it will be fun to accomplish that! Happy holidays to you, too!
Comment: I LOVE all of the FUN, green treasures you sent! Wish I could give you more than one heart! The yarn is pretty, the fabric is cool, the chickens card is fun and I have always wanted some of that yummy smelling soap. Thanks so much, Talyn
Response: I was a bit worried about the scent, so glad you like everything. Merry Green Christmas!
Comment: Many thanks for the book. I heard Carol Higgins Clark speak at a mystery conference in October with her mother. I'd only read one other of Carol's books--this looks like a good read.
Comment: Oh Cynthia - what a great little parcel :) I love the stamps and can certainly use them in my crafting. The Kermit Pez dispenser is fantastic and will live in my bag for a picker upper :) Happy swapping!
Response: Glad you like everything and even more glad it all reached you intact. :)
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful scripture, prayer and blessing. I also LOVE the owl postcard (that I'm letting my 6-year-old use for his owl report at school. So thanks for the visual for his project too!) :-)
Response: I am so glad you liked it and its multi-purpose. Thanks for joining my swap!
