**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!
A little about me
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.
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

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