Comment: 7/22/17 - This swap was never received. It was marked sent 6/17/17. I sent an email on 7/1 to find out the status of the swap. On 7/4, you responded and ask that I wait until the end of the week to see if it arrived. On 7/7 I sent email that no package arrived and asked for either a re-send or tracking information for the first package. No response. I sent another email on 7/18 asking for tracking or for re-send. No response. I will change my rating if I ever do receive something.
Comment: Thanks so much for your answers. It warms my heart to see that you say the phrase "fix you something" to your family when it's time to eat. My family is from Alabama and my momma and granny always used to say that. Reminds me of home. <3
Comment: I loved reading your answers! The other two reindeer are Dancer and Vixen, but you really did pretty good! And isn't it funny - my grandparents always said "out with the old and in with the new," and that it was bad luck to still have Christmas decorations up at the stroke of midnight on December 31! Every family is different, huh? Thanks so much for sharing, and have a merry Christmas!
Response: oh wow my family always hollered bad luck take em down before New Years so its hard to tell probably just ole wise tales
Comment: I sent you 2 messages dealing with the disappointing card I received. You have not replied, but there is a pattern where you don't reply to problem swaps. Unless I receive another post card, I will have to rate you at the point
** Update ** No resend has been sent as of 21NOV16.
Response: I'm sorry about that :-( I will get u another one out in the mail Monday.
Comment: Dear Angie and Leona, thank you so much for this wonderful packages, my kids loved it, toughtfully choosen, great items, also thank you so much for sending it so quick, I hope you are also satisfied with this swap as much as me:) love :) <3 <3 <3
Response: You're Very Welcome we were very pleased to get to send to your kids. It was a pleasure getting to pick out something for them. Glad they loved it!!
Comment: I have sent you a pm a few months ago that I haven't received anything. You promised to resend, but I never got it.
Update 13th of July 2016: Received a beautiful notebook with pen and verse from the Bible. Thank you. :)
Response: Glad that it made it to you :-) Thanks for the updated rating nd heart!!
Comment: Thanks for all the posts. However, some were too big for me to read the entire verse.
Response: My apologies when I check the preview it shows they work but then when I post it shows they don't fit :-( But you are very welcome I loved the swap and hope there are more similar to this one :-)
Comment: You included a lot of religious items in with this swap. It is my fault, that I didn't put on my profile that I am not a religious person. I have updated my profile. There a a lot of fun things that could have been sent for this swap, I was disappointed.
Response: I'm sorry I didn't realize how many religious items I actually sent I don't guess :-(
Comment: We received your package in the mail a few days ago, I was trying to wait till elyssa got here on Friday to rate it. It's huge and a box she will cherish forever, please tell Katie we are so very excited and we will be mailing hers on Saturday. I am truly so happy for the kids swap, it gets her creativity going and she has really picked out some great things for Katie.
Response: Thanks Katie will be happy just whenever it arrives. Love her heart she loves doing swaps she just got interested in the ATC's and pocket letters. She will try anything at least once. I LOVE swaps that get kids involved.
Comment: I received your box today. I didn't give you a heart because you didn't read my profile. If you had, you would've realized that I don't like pink.
Response: I read your profile but I'm lucky I got it out to you this quick I have been tied down with my husband in the hospital :-(. My apologies would u like me to send something else in place of the pink??
Comment: So sorry for the delay but I moved and lost track of my packages during the packing/unpacking process. Thank you so much for the items. Though the nail polish was instantly kidnapped by my daughter
Response: That's perfectly fine and that sounds like something my granddaughter would do. That's why I sign her up for swaps in the children/teen swapping group. Glad she loved the nail polish :-)
Comment: Thank you Leona! Sadly though the envelope arrived in a plastic bag from the post office because the original envelope was mangled and one of the notecards is unusuable also, I think it got wet :(
Response: Awww that sux I wonder if they have dropped it getting it out of the mail box at the top of my driveway. Crazy postal people!! Would u like me to send u another notecard??
Comment: Thanks for the recipes
Just a recommendation. This was an email swap not a PM swap. I was given a 3 for doing the exact same thing once. Was told I didn't follow the guidelines of the swap. Lucky for me the swapper was nice enough to give me a 5 when I recent them - probably because I was in the time frame and caught the rating right away. Great recipes that I will try
Response: Oh I guess :-( I assumed it meant we could use our swap-bot email too. Thanks for the heads up!!
Comment: Thanks for the note pad , but it was a challenge swap meaning you use only one stamp , not one $1 item , please reread swap details ! But I pledge not to rate down since I did recieve something ! Please join next round and challenge yourself to one stamp only ! Thanks
Response: Sorry I think I worked on that swap on my bad day when I wasn't feeling at all myself. I noticed your profile mentioned u liked magnets and since the notepad had magnets I thought VOILA!! I probably confused myself and thought it was a $1 item swap, my apologies.
Comment: Thanks for the swap. I enjoyed reading your answers. Sorry for the delay in rating you. I hadn't realised that you'd sent it via Swap-Bot direct mail and not by email and I didn't see it until today :-)
Response: Thats fine!! With all this wild weather going in everywhere I figured people would be delayed in rating or even sending. We're in a winter storm warning here, everything is WHITE!!
Comment: Late send, no communication at all, didn't respond to my PM. I am giving you a 3 because you did eventually post this swap to my profile.EDIT TO ADD- 3/3/16- Sending more pictures will NOT make up for the fact that you were late with no communication. I'm sorry if you feel this is unfair, but you were online at one point and could have posted then and I probably would have understood, but since that didn't happen...
Response: I posted an important annoucement at the top of my page. :-( Would u like me to send u some more zebras??
Comment: Late swap, no communication before send by date.... and had to ask for a resend because the first late one did not fit swap description so i am leaving a 3,,,mujltiple unanswered pms this swap was just a hassle!!!
EDITED TO REPLY~ NO I do not need any more images... I would have liked for you to do this swap responsibly the first time to all 6 participants. YOU SHOULD Actually have 6 ratings of 3 on this one. Consider yourself blessed that not everyone rated you the way they should have and you got off easier than you should have ;-(
Response: I'm sorry I posted an important annoucement at the top of my page. :-( Would u like me to send another set of images to you of your choosing??
Comment: Re-rating from below-I'm sorry Leona I realize it is a difficult time for you and we did message so I knew why you aren't posting. I was happy to re-rate if you since you have fulfilled the swap. Thank you for the zebras
Response: Thank You!! I wish others were as understanding :-(
Comment: NOVEMBER 16 I'm sorry to leave you this 1, but you have made no effort to re-do this swap. You left me three different images, only one of them which was in the parameters of the swap. I sent you a message on Oct. 31 and you read it immediately but never replied. I sentÂ you another message on Nov. 15 and it's unread but you read the swap I sent to you on the same day (and rated me as well). So I don't know what to do anymore. If you re-do this swap, I will re-rate a 3. I see your other 2 partners have rated you a 5 for this and I know the host sent them a message advising otherwise but for one reason or another they decided a 5 is OK for a swap not done properly. Sorry to say but those are two wrongfully received 5s... NOVEMBER 26 You tried to redo this but again, you posted three individual pics and almost two weeks later since my original rate. In between you have not made any effort to rectify this or contact me. I'm upping this to a 3 just because I'm tired of trying to make you understand how you're supposed to do this. I got _something_ so let's put this to rest.
Response: I tried redoing this swap and I hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving :-)
Comment: Thanks for sending! Those tiny homes you pinned were so cute. My boyfriend would love living in something like that. The funny thing is, I almost chose the violet contact lens picture for something purple too.
Response: oh I just seen they looked purple so I chose them lol and yes I think I could manage a tiny home my home is 100' long
Comment: We just seem to be swapping with each other. LOL I wanted to tell you that you have beautiful hand writing I wish mine was a little neater trying to work on that. lol Love the pc stockings were my favorite part of Christmas growing up.
Response: I get so tickled every time partners are assigned and we end up with each others name. oh gosh if my grandkids didn't have a stocking they'd probably cry or I know my granddaughter would. But, I'm sure she'd be on cloud 9 if I could just substitute Luke Bryan in the stocking place. :-)
Comment: I LOVED your questions, especially the one that said "What if we weren't allowed to have prayer in our homes?" :-( Excellent questions, very thoughtful definitely gives you something to think about.
Response: I think if we weren't allowed to have prayer in our homes the world would go to hell in a handbasket (not sure if I'm suppose to post any replies to the questions :-(
Comment: So jealous...I want pears. We canned green beans up but then bean beetles ate them all up. My homestead group has been doing a lot of food preservation. I have gotten some good recipes...good luck with the rest of the season!
Response: wow I've never canned pears before but I am so sorry the bean beetles ate your beans. If the mail would let me I would send you a jar of canned green beans but they might not get there in good condition by the time they got tossed around by the mail workers. :-(
Comment: Thank you for your nice card and bird stamps used!
Response: you are very welcome and I loved the bird stamps. I think its a shame that the postal service makes all these nice stamps that have to be used just like right now my new book of stamps are winter flowers.
Comment: type 1/electronic swap received, PM'd her, explained it is to be mailed due the requirement of the swap, was told she was re-mailing it over 2 weeks ago, haven't rec'd it yet, am willing to bump to a 3 when I receive it.
7/18/14 FINALLY rec'd the swap that was due mid May. As I stated, I would change to a 3 when rec'd (even though I didn't mean a few months later)
Response: sorry i've had internet issues and it prevented me from doing anything online will mail out monday
Comment: Received the book. Unfortunately, it wasn't really wrapped and I could see right through the one layer of tissue paper :-( Disappointing. It wasn't labeled with the swap or your name either, as per the swap requirement. Not even a note. And it's too almost too big to fit into a stocking. So not really a great fit for this swap, but I appreciate the effort and I don't have the heart to rate a 3. EDIT: Opened on Christmas. I'm not Christian, so I will be donating this religious book so it can find a different home.
Response: my sticker on the outside must've come off during mailing that said the swap and my username :-(
Comment: I am beaming. Literally light must be pouring out of my eyes because I am so happy because of your package. I LOVED IT. I wish I could give you a thousand hearts!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Response: Thank you so much, I am glad you were happy and it would be nice if we were allowed to give more hearts to extra-special packages. :-)
Comment: Thank you for the cute groundhog profile decorations :) The "what? is there something in my teeth?" is my favourite, so cute! :D
Response: you are very welcome. I'm glad that you liked them. I'm actually pretty good at shooting groundhogs that get in my garden, my grandkids say I'm granny hillbilly from the Beverly hillbillies LOL
