Regarding swaps

I do my very best to send every swap out on time. But please remember that I live in Australia! More often than not, I send swaps internationally. Please message me if you do not receive your swap within 4 weeks of the send date, as I am happy to re-send if necessary. If I have not received your item within two-four weeks of the send date of a swap, I will message you just to check if the item has been sent or not.

Also, please message me if I have not rated you for a swap! Usually it will be because I have not received it, but once in a while I may just forget to rate. Once a month I go through my Sent swaps and check for the swap, and will contact my partner if I haven't received anything.

About Me

I am 29 years old and I live with my fiance and cats Oscar and Chloe. My cat Leo passed away on August 27, 2018. I am studying Library and Information Services at TAFE. I am engaged to a man named Shaun - we have been together for 8 years, and engaged for 4 years. I am an aunty to three gorgeous, cheeky boys, who light up my life.

I have tried a lot of crafty things in the past, mostly jewellery and bookmarks, but also ATCs and painting. I haven't had a lot of patience for them though! I like to do colouring in though. I especially love colouring in butterflies and feathers.

I am currently into card making and love trying different designs and ideas. If you would like to see the cards I have made, please feel free to visit my Facebook page: My small business (Mel's Paper Party) or my Etsy store: Mel's Paper Party
