About Me

  • CHECK THIS OUT * * * * * -- OK, so I've had a problem happen in life since I joined Swap-bot. I joined to give myself a reason to keep creating art. I jumped in to postcard swaps, ATC swaps, and a few electronic swaps. I was loving it -- the act of creating, of feeling satisfaction of picking the right thing for your partner, and receiving the fun things in the mail.

Around June 22nd, I logged on to my account and was shocked to find that I had received a couple of 1 ratings. No one had contacted me to let me know something was missing. I was blindsided by this! My goal was to never have anything but 5s and the majority of those 5s with a heart.

Both of the people who left the 1 rating were in "Stuff the Mailbox #24" where I had 20 partners. I notified everyone in the swap that my packages were missing and told them I would get another package out in the mail asap.

Shortly after that, I started receiving other messages from other swaps stating that my mailing had not been received. The best I can figure is that I'm missing outgoing mail from about May 10 - June 22.

I filed a report with the post office and the police. They are conducting an investigation, but I don't know any new results. Anything that was a package, fat envelope, a bright/colorful/decorated envelope, and even fancy postcards have been taken.

I am working as quickly as I can to get substitute items sent out to my swap partners. I am not skimping on artwork, ATCs, postcards, or anything. Your replacement mailing will be equivalent or better that the original item sent to you.

I plan to have every swap item(s) mailed out by July 13. I hope I can count on everyone's patience, understanding, and forgiveness.

Thank you, jill = jillybeanie


Hello! My name is Jill Campbell, and I live near where the corners of Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Missouri meet.

I am a retired teacher, with 10 years teaching in public high schools and 20 years teaching at Pittsburg State University in Pittsburg, Kansas. I have my Bachelor of Science in Education w/ an Emphasis on English and Technical Writing. I also have 2 masters degrees and hours toward my doctorate, but I am probably finished unless i see a class or classes that just interest me.

I am a grandmother of 4 little girls who I refer to as "my little princesses". I used to think that people who talked about their grandkids like this were just SO annoying, but now I understand. There is nothing that compares to grandchildren!

I grew up on a farm, where my life lessons were influenced by the value of a life, strong work ethic, sense of humor, responsibility, and accountability.

I currently spend time playing the piano, reading, painting, crafting, doing special things w/ my granddaughters, cooking/baking, taking pictures, scrapbooking, book-making, and more. I love creating things in all levels of difficulty.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask! It's nice to meet everyone here and I can't wait to get started swapping!!!

Comment: Never received. You marked sent on the swap on June 20, 2020. On July 7, 2020 I sent you a message that it had not been received. You replied that you would get a new one in the mail the next day which would have been July 8, 2020. As of July 14, 2020 this has not been received. If I ever do receive a card I will change this rating.

Comment: I was a bit surprised with what I received, and have found uses for the items because my grandmother loves the coloring book and crossword puzzle (especially because the crossword is large). The notepads were a bit different from what I normally receive, and I use them to write to my swap partners. Overall, thank you for the items! Best, Lexi T
Response: Thank you! I'm happy you found a use for it!

Comment: Hi Jill- I <3, <3, <3 th package Jack the gnome (with your assistance, I'm sure) prepared for me. The wreath is so delicate, with the lovely sachet and accessories my gnome home is beautiful now - thank you. This was beyond extra special you are awesome!!!
Response: That makes me SO happy. I hadn't been on Swapbot all weekend, so your rating was the 1st thing I saw on a Monday morning. I really got excited about the gnome swap and what I could do for it. I can't wait until there is another one! I've already got ideas going on what I want to do.

This has been a very disheartening experience for me as a host. I've had to angel for one swap this week. There are 2 more swaps that I'm hosting that need ratings for items received and confirmation that the items were sent out.

Ohnomissy on Jul 14, 2020:

I read your mail issue on your profile, I sent you a message. I also haven't received anything from the handmade envelope swap. My rating will change if it arrives.

Maud1916 on Jul 9, 2020:

Sorry about your mail troubles. I haven't received the Profile Random Swap, but if you can get it re-sent within a month from today, I'll rate a 5.

Also, please rate me for the Crazy Postcard Swap #1. Thanks!

Justjada on Jul 5, 2020:

So sorry to read about your mail troubles.... I was just checking in to see if you had received the post card I had sent out to you as I have had mail troubles myself and am now cautious. I try to reach out after not getting a rating just to be sure :)

myancey on Jul 4, 2020:

Hey there. I read ur profile and I am still missing a cpl ratings from ya. Hope all is ok. I have sent messages as well. Mindy

swolverton on May 11, 2020:

Oh my gosh, what a great swap. You spoiled me. I really love all the things in my package. :) I didnt see the swap name to give you a rating.. But I wanted to send some love for the package and the note.
