I will still be appreciative and say something nice, it's the thought that went into the swap.to me this is suppose to be fun not to put people down or be rude. so I will always be kind no matter what. I love all the swaps!! happy Swapping:) I'm taking a break for awhile due to computer issues, driving 2 hours away to use a friends computer is not easy right now. so happy swapping to all!

Favorite movies are Green Mile,Sleepless in Seattle,Woman in Red and Sleeping with the Enemy and Titanic, You got mail, Castaway and recently seen Hunger games and loved Twilight, and the Maze Runner was good too.

I have done many and many of swaps for the last 20 something years, and have seen and heard of many excuses, I have hosted many of my own swaps as well, so all I ask is that, before you rate me on anything you receive from me, if it's late, or it has not arrived, please be patient, as I always send out when I click the send out button on the swaps, I do not have any control over the mail, or how long it travels to get there. please be kind enough to message me. if something does not arrive, I can and will send something in place of that swap. I don't flake and have never flaked on any of my swaps on any of my groups. I am a busy mom , but will always answer my messages ASAP, so please be kind enough to let me know.sometimes our computer freezes up when the weather here is windy, so if I don't answer quickly in return, that could be why. but I will always try to message back in return ASAP:) Thank You.

make up preferences

As far as make-up goes, for make up swaps, I love any and all make-up, not allergic to anything in particular, I do love lip gloss, light to medium pinks, fushia's and nude lipstick is a must have, any color for lipstick as well. nothing to bright. I love nail polish all sorts of funky colors out there, I do and will wear it or make it work for me:) I like bronzer, I like eye shadow as well. always can use a makeup bag for many purposes. I love hairbands all colors, ones with flowers or decorations are good, I use a lot of bobby pins for mine and my daughters hair. eyeliners I love blues ,purple, black and browns. anything with sparkle in it is good too. I do not like liquid eyeliner, it does burn my eyes. lol I'm not a high maintenance kind of person, I don't use all that expensive makeup. any make up is make up and does the same I think. I do use Maybelline, cover girl, ELF they have great lipsticks and brushes and others things too. I use NYC as well. I love using bare mineral makeup when I can find it. other than that I'm easy to please and really love makeup like any other girl:) this would be a great swap! lets get to swapping:) yay!

user2637 rated for Pocket Letter : Halloween Theme :) on Oct 10, 2016
Comment: Hi, Dee. Thanks for the pocket letter. Sadly, you marked it sent on Sep 24th but the metered postage is dated Sep 28th, which was after the due date. I wish you would have told me ahead of time that you were going to send late -- sending late without communicating isn't fixable, thus the 3 rating. Also, please double check addresses. You addressed mine to (street name) Way, instead of (street name) Road and both exist in my town. :/ https://c7.staticflickr.com/6/5744/30214158406_00a8ed551e.jpg //// Response on 25Oct2016 -- Well, I wrote you a PM in response to your PM but you've blocked me so I can't send it. I shall respond here. I believe you are misunderstanding what I mean in my rating. I don't mean that the swap "arrived late" as you stated in your PM to me. I don't mean that you "marked it sent" late, because you marked it sent on time. But the metered postage which was on the envelope has a date on it -- the date that it was purchased -- and that date is after you marked it sent, and after the send-by date. The type of postage and tracking that was on the envie is the type purchased only at the PO window. So someone had to take the envie to the PO and purchase the postage, and that was done after the swap due date. Thus, it was sent late. This URL shows a picture of the postage with the late date on it: https://c7.staticflickr.com/6/5744/30214158406_00a8ed551e.jpg I hope this clears up your confusion regarding this rating. // Update 04Nov2016 -- You have unblocked me, pm'd me, then blocked me again, leaving me no avenue for reply but this rating comment. You still don't seem to understand and I'm not sure how I can be clearer on this: the swap was MAILED late. This is proven by the date on the postage. Late swaps get 3 ratings -- that's how the rating system works. I don't appreciate you insinuating I'm "rude" and "nasty" in PM. I'm being factual and rating according to guidelines.
Response: hi, no actually it was sent out on time, I had no access toi my computer at the time it was sent, so therefore I had no control of my computer going out, otherwise I definitely would have sent you a message! sorry you feel like I wasn't communicating, but had no control over that. glad you got it enjoy!
Comment: Beautiful. Thank you.
Response: Your so very welcome! so glad you liked it, I love handmade things:) Enjoy and happy swapping! :)

vanneparis rated for SUSA - Prince ATC on Aug 26, 2016
Comment: Hi Dee - Thanks so much for such a beautiful Prince ATC. It is so cool because it really has a "memorial" look to it with all of the writings on the image. I also love the use of the sequins. Can I steal the idea, lol??? I'm glad you enjoyed the swap. I really can't believe he's gone :(
Response: Hi, so glad you liked it, it was fun. yes you may use the idea:) lol yes so sad he is gone, such a shock. Enjoy and Happy Swapping:)
