About Me

Hello: Swap Bot friends, I live on the south end of Vancouver Island BC Canada. "My Etsy Store" above is my wish-list...

Updated Postcard info: The absolute worst mail delivery service seems to be between Canada and the United States !!!

I find the amount of non-raters is a continual thorn in my side and I am quite discouraged with Swap Bot. I have recently joined Postcrossing and I look forward to not having to track others down for a simple rating. Thank you to those who take the time and are considerate enough to rate. You are the best!!!

For POSTCARD SWAPS : please send naked(stamped&posted)... ...Please put the date on the PC... If you dont put the swap name on: I cannot rate you!

NON-RATERS: Please just give a rating already... "The rating system is meant to help keep people honest and fair with their swaps.

Just wondered if, given your username, you might be interested in joining our reptile & amphibian group, Scales 'n' Tails. I've sent you an invite just in case, no worries if it's not your thing!

Thank you for the postcard. I love that Victorians offer gardenias as a way to say "I think you're lovey", such a nice thing to do and thank you very much. I also love the fact that you used gardenia postage stamps, very nice added touch. Happy swapping and I hope the sun is shining brightly down upon you.
