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! I take a digital photo of all PCs I send out, front and back views.Please dont send me homemade PC's unless the swap is for a homemade PC. Thank you.

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

THANK YOU so much for this RAK card!!! It's incredible. It's so ME. I can't stop looking at all the tiny things. These turtle (tortoise?) stamps are so beautiful, too. One of my favorite things to do near here is visit the turtles that swim around in a pond. This has been a difficult week and your card really brightened it, thank you :):):) Happy swappping and happy summer :):):)

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.
