**** I have two low ratings on my profile, I am aware of this! First I will address the slow arrival 3 rating, when canada post is running smoothly they say 6 - 8 weeks for over seas delivery. However I sent this out shortly after the postal strike and they were VERY slow to get mail going again. I suppose I should have taken that into consideration before signing up for swaps, I was just so happy the strike was over I didnt even stop to think that they may not be business as usual yet. Second, the number 1 rating. I sent this swap WITH a comfirmation number, however my post office told me that the other countries postal system would not share details of the delivery, only that it WAS delivered. Being the trusting person that I am, I resent this swap... TWICE! With no acknowledgement from the receiver. And so here is where I stand, I would like to be included in future swaps because I am NOT a flaker but if even after reading my explaination you as a swap coordinator feel I cannot participate I will understand. It was just a certain someone that seemed bent on spoiling swap bot for me.****
Hello Swappers! My names Valerie, I'm a 26a old, married female. I love to send mail and parcels too brighten peoples day! I'm an avid reader, crafter and music lover. I'm new to swap-bot but not to swapping, so never hesitate to contact me if there happens to be something off about a swap I have sent you BEFORE rating poorly. I always try to send something tailored to the likes of who I am sending to, and ALWAYS send a swap I have committed to. Thanks for taking the time to look at my profile, I hope to meet some fun and creative people here!
Rock, Classic Rock, Alternative, Classical, Metal.... well, almost anything but 'blue grassy' stuff
I couldn't possibly choose a favorite book but some of my fav authors are: Charlaine Harris, Stephanie Meyer, Jodi Picoult, Chandler, Funke, Susan Habbard, Alice Sebold, Melissa Marr, Kelly Armstrong, Lesley Livingston and many many more along those lines.
Hmm, just to name a few: Rocky Horror Picture Show, Clockwork Orange, Gia, The Saw movies, most books turned movie, and a whole load of 'scary' movies; I'm really into special effects.
I never miss House or Dexter. Other shows you could find on my PVR would include, Haunted, Dog Whisperer, Duhram County, Big Love, Nurse Jackie, Family Guy, East Bound and Down, U.S. of Tara, Walking Dead, Spartacus, Shameless, Californication, True Blood...
I like to scrap book, and have a HUGE stash of supplies, so please dont send any kind of paper crafting materials UNLESS that is what the swap is for! I also love to make ATC's and Inchies and have a big collection to share. Jewlery making is another passion of mine, so beautiful beads and findings are always apprieciated. Sometimes, when the mood stikes I will simply paint. I'll paint and paint untill I have run clean out of canvases and things to paint on. I'm also starting to dabble in nail art (if you can call that a craft), particularily 3D nail art, so I love to find little gems and tiny little decos and those slicable fimo bars.
