(17-05-'17) Hello everyone, I am taking a break/slowing down on swapping. It's been a wonderful, happy mail-filled year for sure! But lately I am not feeling well, mentally. And this means I barely send my stuff on time, and I have a pile of stuff left to rate from this month. Swapping helps me alot, but it is burdening me and others too much right now, I want to continue when I can do it RIGHT, hopefully I'll be back soon!
(26-05-'17) After a friendly encouraging PM I've gone through ALL my unrated received stuff!
( .)> My name is Samantha a.k.a. Sammoning.
~I'm from The Netherlands, and I'm currently 24 years old. I live in an apartment on my own and have a job in financial administration for a few days a week. I also live near The Efteling, a wonderful themepark, I visit it frequently!
~I'm in a long distance relationship, I met my partner online. A few times a year I travel to England by train to visit him (and to buy foreign postcards!)
~~~Why I joined Swap-Bot
~First of all, making people smile! I did not sign up to get loads of stuff, but because I like sending postcards and that I might find some swaps to send my knotted bracelets away.
~And now I will finally receive fun mail, haha.
~~I am interested in private swaps to trade away my knotted bracelets! Or even to make a costum one for you. Bracelets sent via Swap-Bot: 6
This could be in exchange for your handmade bracelets, or other crafted items, or things from my 'Like'' section, even a simple postcard will suffice... If you would like to make me an offer, just send me a PM!
Mail gets delivered on Tuesday to Saturday.
Mail gets picked up on Monday to Friday at 5pm.
~I noticed outgoing mail usually takes longer than incoming mail from the same location.
~I mark my swaps 'sent' when I finish writing them and they will go in the mailbox the NEXT day. Usually I write them in the evening or at night so they won't make it to the pick-up time anyway. And there's also the time difference ofcourse.
~~~My rating pledge
~You can count on me to fulfill swaps with my best effort and before the deadline.
~I will never leave a bad rating without contacting you first and I will rate fairly and swiftly (but not always on the day I receive, because life.)
~I will usually contact both receiving and sending partners if it is not received after a while.
~Please contact me if you feel something has gone wrong, so we can find a solution together.
~~~My crafty hobbies
~My main creative thing is knotting friendship bracelets And not just your average summer camp stripy ones ;) I have discovered this hobby a few years ago (2012) when I quit my biology studies because of anxiety/stress etc. Now I'm a moderator in an online community, and I swap bracelets across the world which I really enjoy!
~Doodling. I used to draw for most of my life, starting out with my bedroom wallpapers... Never considered myself to be very good at it, but pencils and markers still make me quite a happy girl!
~Collecting erasers. This just happened one day, and now I have a few boxes full!
~Reading nowadays I mostly read in English, instead of my native language Dutch.
~I play RuneScape, not very actively anymore but I will always keep very fond memories of that game.
