I'm here to help keep snail-mail alive. I've "met" some wonderful people here and consider them friends. With that said, I try to put a bit of care and thought into swaps and encourage the same.

I send on time and rate the same day swaps are picked up from the post office. As far as hearts go, I give them for TPG: thoughtfulness (yours), presentation (yours), and giddiness (mine). I don't need extras with swaps since I'm in a constant state of downsizing. I prefer quality over quantity. But if I send you extras, it's because I have something I think you can use (i.e., you're helping me downsize). I love decorated envies, especially when they feature your artwork.

Note: I'm allergic to cigar/ette smoke, and anything dusty gets me sneezing, too. So please don't send smoke or dust my way.

Thank you for the December WW! I was having a bad day, so I was excited to find shower steamers in my mailbox. They smell fabulous and I can't wait to use them. Thank you for sending such a special gift.
