Hi, I'm Leslie.
I ALWAYS send my swaps on time. Please contact me before rating if you have not received anything. When putting outgoing mail in the mailbox, I will not mark sent until the postman has picked it up.
Likewise: Please note that I am a responsible and reasonable swapper. I always try to bring questionable envies to the post office, but sometimes one will slip through and need extra extra postage 🙁 Please, if I owe you postage, let me know. Also, if you owe me, know that if you are uncomfortable sending money, I will accept the amount owed by check, postal money order, or unused American postage stamps.
🐌 I love Snail Mail! It's so fun to come home from a long day at work and find some wonderful Happy Mail!
Thank you @Wambatty for letting me know it was cancelled! I appreciate your thoughtfulness.
Happy swapping! 🎆 QUESTION... Does anyone know anything about the Color me Happy Rainbow ATC swap? I have it all made, ready to go (supposed to be mailed 6/15), but it is not on my swap list anymore. 🤔😦
*NOTE: Since the move to Florida, I have been mailing most of my swaps from the mailbox. If your swap has a post date on the item that is one day later than I sent from the mailbox, I apologize. I always hit the sent button after the mail has been picked up, not when I drop it in the mailbox. Unfortunately, it may take the mailman (yes, it's really a man!) a long time to get it back to the post office for sorting and mailing. And, I regret that the postal service may have issues if I tell my postman to get the items to post office ASAP ... and darn the rest of his route!! Lol. 😉 I do usually send swaps out ahead of the swap date, so it should still be in compliance.
If you have not received a swap from me, please let me know before you rate. I very rarely miss a swap deadline, and will always message you if I think it will be late. In fact, I usually have swaps ready to go a few days after they are assigned. I will wait, however until a few days before swap deadline to send if you have not sent yours to your partner.
I can't believe that I actually have to put this on my profile: Swappers that owe me postage:
***Speedy Found Image #16 - $2.68
UPDATE: 1/22/20: I was told by a member of the Swap Bot Flakers that it could be a problem at my end of the postal system. I should go and talk to my post office. So, I did. Here is what they told me: PO stated they would never let an envie that size, with a tracking number, be mailed for $1.10 in stamps. The Post Office will give out piles of tracking numbers to people that mail a lot of items (who knew?). She had to have put the tracking on herself and mailed it. So, when I got home, out of curiosity, I Checked USPS website, here is what it says for the tracking number on the envie: "Label Created, not yet in system A status update is not yet available on your package. It will be available when the shipper provides an update or the package is delivered to USPS. Check back soon."
If it had been mailed with the PO and they put the tracking number on it, it would be in the system as having reached its destination at my house. And the proper postage would be on it.
Rating: please be thoughtful when rating. If your partner sent you 3 things pertaining to a swap theme, when they only needed to send one, or sent some extras that your profile says you like, be kind...rate with a heart. Don't you want to to make someone's day?? 💚
POSTCARDS: please write more than 2 words on a postcard swap you send to me. I like to hear about you - your likes/dislikes, your day, the weather in your area, your pet, your craft faves, fave TV or movies,, etc. Sending me a postcard that only says... "Happing swapping" for example, will not prompt me to give a heart rating.
My 89 yr old mother lives with me. She still has her license (but doesn't drive here in Florida), and makes friends easily. Her 90th birthday is coming up in August!
My son and his girlfriend just moved to NY City! Hooray!!! Now we are on the same coast!
For Crafts, I am a long-time stamper and scrapbooker. I have stopped making full size Pocket Letters- they are very time consuming. I can do most crafts, however, I have not yet been able to get the hang of sewing, crocheting, or knitting... but I would still like to learn someday.
I have found an inner artist me from being on swap sites. It's exciting to be challenged like this!
My all time favorite books...
Martians Go Home
The Disc World series by Terry Prachett
The Harry Potter Series
A book from childhood... The Diamond in the Window.
Little Men by Louisa May Alcott (any LMA book, truth be told)
The Golden Compass trilogy
Favorite Movies... hmmm So Many!
I love old movies: Examples: Singing in the Rain, Bringing up Baby, Oklahoma, Carousel, The Philadelphia Story, American Graffiti, Back to the Future (the first is the best! and yes, it IS a classic!), Dirty Dancing... and the list goes on.
I saw La La Land before Christmas 2017, I thought it was Fantastic!
If you like classic movies check out this website... http://www.omahafilmevent.com. My friend Bruce puts on these events, and before I moved, I was a volunteer at the bi-annual events. A fabulous, fun, and tiring evening!
TELEVISION: I am addicted to older British Sitcoms - in particular: Butterflies, To The Manor Born, and The Good Life (Good Neighbors - in the US)
I loved The Last Man On Earth ... so upset when it was cancelled. I feel they need to do an anniversary show to let people know what happens.
MASH, Scrubs, Peak Practice (hmm, theme emerging!). Outlander, Lucifer, Sabrina, Don't Trust the B in Apt 23, Ghost Whisperer, Cheers, The Big Bang Theory, Eureka, Warehouse 13, Mare of East Town, and so many more. The key is, I like to be entertained, like shows that don't talk down to me like I'm 3 yrs old, and don't like gore for gore's sake.
Also, I love all things Dyan Reaveley/Dylusions. I use the Dylusions paints and inks in a lot of my Swaps. The colors are so vibrant, and the Dyan Reaveley stamps are so funky and fun, I love them! So receiving anything you create with these would be fabulous!
I have taken classes from Dina Wakley, as well. She is a beautiful, warm, talented woman! I learned how to use a gelli plate, and I love it! Never thought I would want to learn something else, but Gelli printing is awesome.. try it if you have a chance. Loved, loved, loved the Dina Classes!
And, I really love Smash Books. They are what I have been using on my trips for the past few years. Anything to be used in a Smash Book would be great!
People who won't give a 💜 for a postcard they received. Postcards require thought too.
People who don't rate.
People who rate 1 without contacting their partner first.
SMOKEY OR STRONG SMELLING ODORS. I have severe allergies and any smokey, moldy, or other strong smelling odors (including perfumes, and candles) will be thrown in the trash before I even open them.
IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING SWAPPING WITH ME: If you are going to be late, PLEASE NOTIFY ME. I would do the same for you. Rules of swaps are there to be followed (as are all rules in life!) I follow them when I send to you, I would sincerely appreciate you follow them when sending to me.
99.9% of the time we know If we will be late completing a swap. Please do not hit the mailed it button if you did not. I'm sure everyone would appreciate the truth more than some lame excuse we all know isn't true.
