** UPDATE 2/21/2019 ** I have had the privilege to host several swaps. I've only been in swap-bot two years but I have had so much fun and have made many friends through the swaps.
I think we need to be very careful about our ratings. Recently I was rated a 1 because I didn't reply to a message within 48 hours. I am not here (SB) every day and it happened the message was sent on a weekend when my daughter who is getting married in April was here for wedding related stuff. Imagine my surprise when I found a 1 rating with the explanation being I hadn't responded. My reaction was swift. I deleted any upcoming swaps I was hosting, and also sent two messages to my partner. She was the only 1 (out of 10) who didn't receive my swap. I cannot explain why that happened but to only have 48 hours to respond (and on a weekend) was devastating to me.
ADMITTEDLY, I COMPLETELY OVER-REACTED.
To top it off, I had my first of 2 cataract surgeries yesterday. I'm at work and I should be able to craft -- but the timing of the poor rating, could not have been worse.
My partner received my messages and removed the rating. I will be sending my "lost" swap to her as soon as I am able.
I WOULD NEVER FLAKE ON A SWAP. NEVER. IF YOU DO NOT RECEIVE A SWAP FROM ME - PLEASE CONTACT ME. but PLEASE give me the time to respond. I work full time, have 10 grandkids that I spend time with often, my husband is a pastor and therefore, I'm involved in lots of evening activities. BUT I WILL NOT FLAKE ON YOU. As a host of swaps, I have "angeled" for others who for whatever reason didn't get their swaps in time or ever.
Please remember "Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle." (Plato)
I am a happy mother of 5 (blended family) with 10 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. Crazy! I'm 63 years old and like to think of myself as a free spirit. I've been a scrapbooker, a stamper, a knitter and NOW .. a swap-botter!
My second husband is a retired Methodist pastor. Faith is pretty important to us. organized religion has been hurtful to many people. I prefer a faith that encompasses all walks of life, all faiths, all people. John is the pastor at a Recovery Worship service currently and it has been such a blessing.
Rock & Roll! Actually Im pretty diverse in my music listening but I do not like old fashioned country, nor do I like opera. I don't like rap.
stars! peacocks (they are my "token.")
I like decorating my desk for the holidays each month. so I like the seasons and the holidays.
