About Me

Happy Swapping

Happy to post that I just got the news that I am 3 YEARS CANCER FREE!! (June 21, 2018)

Private swap? Why Yes, yes please!

If you don't receive something, before rating down, please contact me. I have never flaked and never will. I take my swaps seriously and am excellent with communication. I will always strive to send a swap that will make you want to rate with a heart and a smile!

Regarding the '3' -- the swap was a re-send as the first one was sent in a handmade package which I had made from a decorative paper bag (my own stupid idea) and I am thinking that the weight was too much so I'm guessing it fell apart and that was that. It was an expensive swap. I had ordered a FLOW Magazine for it which was over $25 . I did order another Flow Magazine but because of the cost..it took me quite a while to re-send. I was in contact with the recipient the entire time and did not disappear or ignore messages or anything like that. I am always courteous and polite and 100% always willing to fulfill my swap obligations 150%.

Ratings are important to all of us and when we are rated poorly it hits a pit in your stomach. At least it does for me. I am judged by swap hostesses and have even been expelled from swaps (postcard swaps!) for the '3' rating. I encourage everyone here to be kind when rating. Even a 3 can damage someone's reputation. I was expelled from a KINDNESS group for receiving a 3........ What does that tell you about people?

I always strive to be nice, to be considerate and to always really think hard before rating someone down. Sure if someone is constantly sending late or flaking I'd be sure to rate accordingly.

Life is short and kindness truly matters.

be nice


Sometimes life hands you lemons and you simply must stop, drop and make lemonade.
