About Me

20 March 2017 - I am so heartbroken. My one fur baby, Snoopy died yesterday morning after he was poisoned. :(

Please note - I DO NOT celebrate Halloween!!

PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF THE FOLLOWING:
SWAPS - I live in South Africa and swaps from here do take a bit longer than 30 days to get to other swappers in other countries. I have had an occasion where I posted a letter on the 21st of November 2015 and my swap partner only received it on the 30th of December 2015. There was a tracking number. So, it can take 39 days for a letter to get to someone.

RATINGS BY ME - If I haven't rated you it is because I haven't received the swap yet. I always rate when I received the swap! If it was an email swap that you have sent - the reason I haven't rated - because I haven't logged onto my email yet and haven't read the email yet!

RATING ME - Before you give me a 1 rating for not having received a swap from me, PLEASE send me a private message to let me know that you haven't received the swap. I am sure that you would also like to be informed that a swap did not arrive instead of receiving a 1 with no communication. I NEVER HAVE and NEVER WILL flake on a swap!! .

Postcards...

I like receiving any type of postcard as long as it isn't anything discusting and rude. I don't mind if the postcard are sent in an envelope or stamped and written on - whatever the swap requires.

About swaps

I always send my swaps out. If you haven't received my swap to you, please let me know before rating me. I always go out of my way to make sure that my swaps are sent out in time - if for any reason I cannot sent it out in time, I will let you know - but I WILL send the swap requirements.

When sending me something in a swap - please DO NOT send me anything with naked people on. I am really not interested in it. You can keep that for others.

I Pledge to Rate

I will rate as soon as I have received your swap. If I haven't rated yet, I haven't received it yet!

Comment: It finally came! Poor envelope got a bit beat up in transit, but it made it all in one piece! I love all three of the ATC's you made. You're the first person I've gotten mail from in South Africa, it sure did take a while, but I'm glad that it made it. Thank you so much for all the time and energy you put into the art!
Response: I am just glad that they arrived safely. Thank you for the heart.

Comment: Antoinette, thank you for the lovely postcard of South African Flowers. We are heading into our fall season now and it will become Winter in December. We moved to NC from MA because of the harsh winters. It rarely snows in NC. I will be 75 in January. Time flies bye. Shirley
Response: Thank you for the heart. I am glad you liked the flower postcard I picked for you. Here it has been unbearable hot and we are supposed to be in spring now. Take care
