Comment: Hi Sunnie, I will happily change this rating as soon as I receive something. :) * Swap was due & mailed on 5/13. I PMed Sunnie on 6/17 to let her know that I hadn't received anything. She replied the next day and said she'd mail out another copy. On 6/20, I sent her another msg and let her know that if she hadn't mailed it yet, I was okay with a resend via email since the swap is sharing an original short story. Didn't hear back so assumed she opted for postal mail. On 7/16, I sent her a PM to let her know that the resend hadn't arrived and to see when / if she had mailed it. As of 7/24/13, PM is unread.
Comment: Oh my gosh! I love everything you sent me and I think you spent a fortune in doing so, which was so not necessary!! You have totally made my day! Your ATCs are beautiful and everything else is just amazing as well! I really hope you did not spend a fortune, because it sure looks like you did - sorry I am repeating myself, but I am just in shock over your lovely pacakage! Thanks so very much and I hope things are calming down for you! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)

Hi Nicki, Just wanted to pop in and see how you are doing. How's your mum these days? Have missed the Come Walk with Me Swaps, but I know your hands are full with your mum. Just know I'm sending positive thoughts your way. Hugs, CJ

Hi Hi!! I'm hosting a Foodie Pen Pal Swap which I thought might interest you :) Do swing by and check it out yea.. We would love to have you swap with us! :) Thanks!!

Just wanted to let you know that I am changing my internet service provider and will have a new email after Friday 24 May. If you can hold off sending the Come Walk With Me Swap for May until after Monday. That will give me time to make sure everything is all switched over. I did send mine to you already!! Hope you enjoy our walk!

Hi, did you get the postcard from the getting to know you swap? Cos you haven't rated me yet. :-( It has a vintage advert for Jacobs crackers on it. Along with my details and the swap name on the back.

TC on Apr 16, 2013:

Hi, I sent the Come Walk With Me.3 swap today, but Hotmail was not cooperating with me and I'm not sure everything actually went through. Could you check your email and see if you got all the photos and text? Thanks.
