About Me

alt text

I rate within 24 hours Of receiving swap

I pledge to other swap-bot members to: Rate for every swap i take part in. Rate as soon as i am able to get on line after swap is received. Rate Fairly, I will only give a 1 rating if a swap hasn't been received and that no contact has been made from the sender. I promise to pm member first to give them the chance to resolve the situation first. I will only give a 3 if i feel that the swap didn't meet the requirements and that the partner choose's not to correct the swap.

Please note.

My car is down again, I can only get to the post office on Mondays

Happy April!!


I am excited to announce I am hosting my 300th swap. WOW!! I am so happy to be with Swap-Bot, I look forward to the next 300 swaps.

UPDATE 4-11-18

I am looking for home schooling moms to be pen pals and to share lessons, please message me :) I am still down sizing, its taking me forever. Some days I just get off track, I just have so much craft stuff I don't know what to do with it. I am joining a few type 3 swaps to help out with my downsizing.

NEEDS list Update 4-11-18

***I am having issues with Swap-Bot messaging, if you messaged me or have NOT received a type 1 swap from me via SB Message please let me know, if I see I am NOT getting rated I will contact you.****

If you try to message me and you get no response from me please leave me a profile comment.

I am finding messages on my SB messages from a month ago I never saw

I will continue to host the Letter quick swaps. I am no longer in need of washi tape samples (BUT they are always welcome LOL) , memo sheets, list pads I am good but always welcome, #you don't need to send extras unless the swap calls for it, I have too much already.# I am mostly doing letter swaps, I am downsizing, I don't have any time to do anything other than writing, journaling, post cards, and note cards, at least for the month of March and April. I need to simplify my life.


If I have NOT rated you please message me, I been super busy, and I think I may have forgot to rate a few ppl

You do NOT have to send me any extras unless the swap calls for it, I have far too many extras. I am not a picky person, I will not rate or down rate you on the extras you send.

Comment: HMM, dental herbalism is a new idea. I'd look it up on Google but I have no dental questions just now. Making journals of your overage of paper sounds like a good idea.

Fun fact:

Did you know that the fear of Friday the 13th is called friggatriskaidekaphobia or paraskevidekatriaphobia? Well, now you do!

Have a great day/night!

skybridgestudios on Apr 8, 2018:

Hi Vanessa! Thought it'd be fun to include you, too!!! Fri13th

ahren on Apr 7, 2018:

Hi there. Friday the 13th is an unlucky day to me, when I expect everything to go wrong, (even though it usually doesn't.) Nevertheless, it's also a good excuse for a mini-Halloween, it's legal to sit there and watch all 47 Jason Voorhees movies (like him as I do, I still prefer his MOTHER Pamela in that blue knit cardy:"kill her, mummy.")
