About Me

I am a happy mail fanatic. I promise to send and rate for all swaps!

** If you fail to receive a swap or a rating from me, please message me.**

** If you receive a swap where postage is owed, please message me. This has only happened to me once. **

I am a widow. My husband of almost 20 years passed unexpectedly Sept. 2018. I am a mom and a teacher. We have two daughters who are involved in dance. I teach 8th grade Social Studies and Language Arts. In addition to scrapbooking, I also enjoy reading and writing notes/letters.

Comment: Due to lack of communication and you haven't sent nothing I have to rate you a 1. If you do resend and I finally receive it I'll rerate you a 3. 11/21/18 - I've raised it to a 3. I, too, am recovering from a family death and dropped from several swaps as well as communicated with those I was already in swaps with to let them know things may be late. Thank you for contacting me regarding this.
Response: 11/21/18: I apologize for the lack of communication and for the failure of swap. I am dealing with the unexpected death of my husband, who was only 48 years old. Many things took a back seat to my grief including Swap-Bot. I hope you can see from other ratings I am not a flaker. I realize this is many months late, but I will send a replacement. Thank you.

Comment: Thanks, Melissa! It's been a while since we've been partnered! I hope you're well!
Comment: I remember the chaos of working and having dr appts and running/picking kids up from activities. Bless you! Looks like you are doing great at it. When I was in the classroom, I looked forward to a long summer to recoup. Only 2 more months to go!!! Have a wonderful week. Thank you for your lovely note.
Comment: sorry so long for the rate I just realized I didnt rate you for this swap.

Comment: Hi Melissa I received your swap today with all of the bright cuttings in it. I do not have any of the cartridges for the cuttings that you sent so they will come in handy. Hope we swap again sometime. Pat

Vickyen rated for TGIF Weekend NC #43 on Feb 27, 2017
Comment: Hi Melissa! I know the carting the kiddos around gets old but the nice thing is you know who they are with, where they are going, and what's up, because you get to be in the know - when they drive on their own or their friends do, it gets scary! LOL! How did the science project go? Now that I don't miss! LOL! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
