About Me

I am now up-to-date on ratings.

I love things that are from or that depict other countries. I always aim to send thoughtful gifts.

Planned progressive hiatus coming up once all my swaps are rated (August 7, 2023 - have 2 unresolved swaps). Will still reply to messages. Group founders: I have voluntarily left the group because of planned inactivity.

If I haven't rated you, please message me.

IF YOU DON'T RECEIVE MY SWAP, PLEASE MESSAGE ME!

If your message goes unread, please leave a comment asking me to check. I don't ignore messages intentionally (But maybe on accident, I skipped over it).

Hometown, Nature, Wildlife, Books, Music, Entertainment, Education, Art, Traditions, Food, Travel, Manga, Anime, Hollywood, Disney/Pixar, Studio Ghibli, W.i.t.c.h., Detective, Classics, Vampires, Sports, Exhibitions and Museums, Horror, Ancient civilisations, Pokémon

Expectations from me

I am on post crossing as most countries are.

My average time for mail varies.

I will resend snail mail if you contact me after 3 months. Please acknowledge the fact that snail mail is unpredictable. In the end, if you threaten a low rating, I can even send with tracking.

I save all the snail mail I send as images, and even take photos of outgoings at the letter box/post office.

If you would like to see the proof, please contact me.

If I join a swap, I will always send before the swap-bot deadline according to the swap-bot clock.

While I am not poor in my country, take into consideration that in my country, there is not much variety as you are used to. So 'store-bought' is often a missed luxury for me. It simply is not available, even in the most posh of stores.

So to all my hosts and partners, please be understanding of the gap between developed and developing countries. Both in availability and postal service.

I love crafting nonetheless. And hope, that my background will not hinder the process of a fulfilling swap.

Lessons learned (from personal experience) :

People like extras.

Some people like less moving gifs /images.

Some people like washi and stickers on the message side of a postcard.

The polaroid box set was a flop for hearts here.

If you don't get a heart, ask for feedback and let it go. It's not because of you.

be clear you are asking for feedback, not hearts

Don't participate in 1-day turnaround swaps.

People with 4.99 can have a lot of low ratings. So keep 4.99 minimum and lower only if needed.

Do not allow total low ratings more than 5.

Some people are not willing to help. They might lash out.

You are not wrong in expecting a rating when you KNOW it was fulfilled.

Some members have a blind 'holier-than-thou' attitude here. It's not a welcoming atmosphere in the main forum. Newbies beware before posting.

Comment: Thank you for the nice pc and your personal note! I loved the postage stamps! I can't believe how far apart we are! What do you do in India? Are you a native? I do plant all sorts of flowers in my garden, both annuals and perennials. One of my favorite flowers is the oriental lily; it smells wonderful.

Hi! Here's a simple dream of mine in a form of a haiku:

I dream of softness:
gentle colors, quietness and
endless cups of tea

Fruity on Jan 22, 2023:

My process for the Profile Comment Haiku swap is to look at each individual recipient's profile and to write the poem intuitively based on first impressions coupled with my own memories. Hope you enjoy ♡

Ocean enigma

The breeze whispers mysteries

Of worlds beyond reach

A Poem Stanza on Your Profile 1:

I chose to share a poem by one of my favorite poets - "The Stars" by Edith Södergran ♡

As night arrives
I stand on the steps and listen,
the stars are swarming in the garden
and I stand in darkness.
Did you hear, a star fell with a clang!
Don't walk barefoot in the grass;
my garden is full of shards.
