About Me

**Recent News: **February 2021 Texas is getting so much snow and sub-zero temps, which it really doesnt know how to handle! I love the snow and have spent a lot of time in Pennsylvania and Iceland, so this isnt new to me, however it is knew to everyone around me! We have only 1 snow-plow in my town and everything (including post offices) is shut down, so mail may be slow going out or delayed a few days. I have contacted any partners this may affect, but please get in contact with me if you have any concerns or issues. Fingers crossed this is cleared soon and I can get to the post office in the next few days!

**Some things I really love (above all else): * Teekanne brand teas from Germany (especially the winter ones.) Also, always looking from this praline tea from Curtis thats Eastern European

  • I'm also a huge fan of 7 day croissants, the Milka chocolate bars that are as big as your head (especially the one with little candies in it) and Lach Gummi. I miss these things so much now that I cant travel due to Covid restrictions.

  • I ADORE Moomin! Give me all the Moomin! Moomin tea from Nordqvist is also much desired!

  • 30 years old

Ratings/Hearts/and other info

I love receiving a Star for a swap I put together. I generally do very time-intensive swaps and it takes a lot to host them. If something bothers you about a swap I do, please let me know!

The same goes for hearts. If I didn't receive one I feel I've let you down and would like the chance to make it up to you

When I mark it as "sent" it means it is sitting in the mailbox at the post office. Sometimes this happens after the mail goes out or on the weekend, but sent means it is officially out of my hands and on its way to you!

If you haven't received something from me please contact me before rating so we can resolve the issue and resend your swap. I try to be accommodating and understanding and I always ask the same of my partners.

if something arrives postage due PLEASE contact me so I can refund your money. I sometimes just throw stamps on a letter without weighing it and always worry about something arriving postage due. It hasn't happened yet, although I have received a few that showed up that way. Its always a weird feeling when you have to go to the post office and pay to receive your letter

I archive swaps I haven't received yet, but I don't keep track of who hasn't rated/received. Please contact me if you don't receive someone from me BEFORE rating. I always send my swaps, so it is lost if you haven't received it and I want to fix the situation immediately.

*I will rate each swap the day I receive it, if I haven't rated you I haven't received it *

I will give you a good amount of time for something to arrive. I understand that during Covid we are all just trying to do our best. If I notice a bunch of 1's stacking up on your profile, then I will go ahead and rate (if my swap hasn't arrived in a timely fashion) but I generally try to give you space for it to arrive (especially internationally! I'll give these months.) If for some reason something comes up, please just contact me! I am chronically ill and understand if stuff is going to be late. I am also willing to re-rate if you speak to me about whats going on. I'll give everyone a second chance, but I wont give many 3rd or 4th chances. Communication is key. Just let me know!

I am also chronically ill and sometimes my swaps will go out in the post a day or two after the send-by date. I promise to always message you if this happens and let you know its probably due to a bad pain day where I couldn't get to the post-office on a Saturday before it closed. I generally prepare all my swaps on Sundays and have them out in Monday/tuesday mail. I do them early in case of a bad pain day so I am not waiting until the last day of a swap to get stuff done.

AMAZING angels

These are people who have gone the extra mile and angeled for something I was flaked on! 

@JennaZ who hosted the "Christmas for the Dogs" swap and angeled when my partner flaked on me twice in a row. My pup loved all the toys she sent (she sent quite a package of goodies for her!)

@Minxy1964 angeled me the Random Acts Of Happiness #3 swap :) thank you so much, dear

@Artistic was the swap host for the Writers Year and sent me a huge Angel package to make up for my partner flaking! She went above and beyond the swap requirements and sent a really lovely package! Thank you so much!

@queenelisheba for angeling the winter solstice swap

@Tiffaknee for angeling the "cup of tea for you and me" swap. A+ friend and swapper ❤️❤️

@CariahCreates sent Poppy a sweet Valentine's gift from her pup Toby, since Poppy was flaked out of a Christmas present for the "dogs of Christmas" swap. It warms my heart how kind some people are! I was angeled twice for this swap (from @JennaZ first.)

@SabbySteg angeled one of the Lush Boxing Day swaps I was flaked on. Such a very sweet package and sentiment, thank you dear!

@henjomaani for angeling AND resending the Tea for Tealovers swap and sending me a big envelope of tea

@sal410cat for angeling the BoS swap AND an Autumn swap I was flaked on last year. Thank you so much :)

@schaefchen87 for angeling the "not my country" food swap! So many delicious treats :) thank you!

The following swaps I have been flaked on and haven't been angeled for:

  • Sweets and chocolate swap- 8$ of candy from your country (this has NOT been angeled so far, despite the comment on my profile. The comment is from someone who flaked on another swap with me, so I'm not holding my breath.)
  • Private Lush Boxing Day Swap- was the host of this swap in my Lushaholics group. I was supposed to receive 10-15$ of holiday products (which included the bogo sale extras), I was flaked on by @mailboxqueen30 and it was not the first flake, but the most expensive since I sent her a nice box of lush surprises in exchange.

Tea likes and dislikes

I will never rate someone poorly if they send me something from my dislike list..but I definitely give hearts and raves for giving me teas from my "likes"

I dislike: rooibos (African honeybush) and Lipton tea

Love: earl grey, fruity teas especially ones with actual dried fruit in them , loose leaf tea (I enjoy receiving these as long as you mark what they are on the baggie), Matcha, sleepy teas, Clipper brand and anything exotic like strawberry chocolate or praline

Brands I absolutely adore: 1. There was this Praline tea from Russia with the brand name of Curtis. 2. I LOVE Strawberry tea/ Erdbeeren Tee! 3. I love dessert teas that have fancy flavors like cake/cookie/pastries 4. I also adore a good evening tea thats caffeine-free for bedtime. especially if its something unique and out of the ordinary to the normal "sleepy time" herbal tea 5. Please PLEASE send Moomin tea! I love it :) and Nordqvist! 6. Teekann Winter teas from Germany such as Winterzeit!

Food Swaps

Things I especially love for Food Swaps

  • Crisps, especially spicy ones or paprika ones
  • Teekanne winter flavors like Winterzeit and the Marzipan/orange flavor!
  • Chocolate! Milka, German chocolate, Kinder, hazelnut chocolate, you name it!
  • 7 Days Croissants (You get automatic hearts for sending me 7 days croissants. I adore these!!!!)
  • Gummy candies (such as gummy bears/worms/similar fruity candies ESPECIALLY the ones from Germany like Lach Gummi)
  • Lingonberry
  • Blackcurrant
  • Eis Tee (Especially the watermelon flavor!!)
  • Junk food from around the world
  • Tea and hot chocolate
  • Noodles!
  • Cute foods that are shaped like animals (i'm a child at heart!)
  • I have a big sweet-tooth, so pastries or other sweets are much appreciated :)
  • ANYTHING from Iceland as long as it doesnt smell or isnt Licorice flavour. I miss Iceland so much! *

Comment: TYSM, Mallory! For some reason, it didn't click this one was for this swap, so I ended up opening today instead of saving, although I have saved the card to open next month! The extras are great. Over and above, ty. (I think those JA postcards came from me, originally, but I don't think I sent them to you! LOL It's funny how some things make the rounds.)

Comment: If I could give more than 1 heart I would. Thank you for a truly lovely and thoughtful swap and your help and advice so I could get through the nightmare that is Brexit and get mine to my swap partner without problems. If the swap they receive is half as nice as mine then I'll be happy that I sent a great swap. Thank you. Blessed Be. 😀

Because I loved this .gif so much, I just have to leave it for all of the HFF members :)

JudalineZ on Feb 20, 2017:

Thank you for the collection of healing crystals for Jan ALW WTA I love them.

njstauter on Jan 22, 2017:

I am using the "Nevermore' soap. It was a slice, however, the quality of it is extraordinary and will out last other bars. I have the lotion at the ready as soon as the one I have that is almost spent is finished. I can hardly wait to open it...says it is a Lotion for Starry Nights. Holi Ka you find the most interesting items!

njstauter on Jan 21, 2017:

Thank you for the GWE WTA package. I love the scents! What a wonderful surprise in today's mail. You are an amazing SB Sister

njstauter on Jan 7, 2017:

I am honestly delighted that you were open to receive the mug and like it. I'd love for you to let me know how your doc appointment went and how you are doing.

njstauter on Dec 27, 2016:

Hope your flare doesn't last too long and is mild. I can identify with them, so hope you take good care of yourself. Your travel dreams look wonderful!!!
