Kid's Wishlist

My Kids love to receive mail and packages, too. If it's not a special kid's swap but you'd like to send them something, it would be perfect, if it was marked with a G or a J, so they can open it themselves. Thank you!

My boy G is nine years old. He loves Football (Soccer), Star Wars, Lego, Harry Potter and Pokemon. He loves to read, but he's not crafty.

My little girl J is five years old. She's into horses and unicorns, Frozen (Queen Elsa), Hello Kitty and glitter. She loves to craft (paper).

Not so much

Rude or arrogant behavior. Fennel and/or anise flavor and smell. Religious items.

About Swaps

I always send my swaps. If I'm your partner in a swap and you don't receive what I send in a reasonable time, please contact me and I'm sure we find a solution! I put effort in the swaps I send. I read my partner's profile and try to make it something worth receiving. If you're unhappy with what you got, please let me know and give me a chance to work it out. Thank you!

Comment: Hi-wonderful to "meet" you. We are having a nice snowfall here today so that always gets me in the Christmas spirit. Great mini pocket Christmas swap and loved the nice newsy letter you included-so I can see how much the same we are even though miles and traditions separate us-we are all basically like the same things! Thanks for all the goodies included and have a Blessed Holiday season! Merry Christmas and Happiest of New Years!

Hello Angela! I'm opening my Christmas swaps tonight, and started with yours. Thank you so much for everything, they're just my thing, and special thanks for the Charley Harper animal postcards 🌟

I just received your sweet package today! It was such a surprise and full of my favourite things! The Milka bar you sent happens to be my absolute favourite and I haven't been able to find it in the states. I had it in Romania this summer and fell in love! I am currently in the middle of final examinations at Uni for the semester and these treats will be devoured in the next few weeks! Also, I would LOVE to swap with you again!

Hey Angela! I received your package today! Wow! The Kinder Eggs were a very lovely surprise...they were a little beat up but still wonderful! My kids - though they are all grown up - will be so surprised to see them ;-) I plan to give them on Mother's Day. The Washi tape samples were great too! I would love to be your snail mail pal! Please PM me your address. Cheers, Theresa
