Just Saying…,

Dear Swap Friends,

If you can help restock my tea supply I would be greatly appreciative. I recently joined a 30 Days of Tea swap that totally depleted my supply and my swap partner flaked on me so I didn't get anything in return. If you have a favorite tea that you enjoy and you are sending me a swap, could you perhaps share a tea bag with me?

Thank you in advance for you kindness!

I'm so sick of the drama over silly things like swap ideas and pieces of mail. This place is supposed to be fun and about making friends. It's not supposed to add stress to your life and feel like a soap opera. If you like one of my ideas then take it. If you need to mail a day or two late…whatever! Just let me know. If you want to host or join a “rating” swap where nothing is sent, then go for it. People need to get over their idiosyncrasies about this place. This is not the real world and it’s NOT your life. This place is meant to ADD FUN to your life.

I’ve luckily have met a lot a kind-hearted people here that added joy to my days. I enjoy getting mail from them and I smile when I see their name in my mailbox. Thank you to everyone that has taken a moment out of their day to mail me something. 😊

Journals

I have ALOT of Journals/Diaries. I am going to post them all here. If you want yours back let me know. I can't afford to send them all back that would cost a small fortune, but perhaps if you have one of mine and I have one of yours we could do a mutual swap. :)

2019 Photo Journal -- Arimails

Not sure of the year -- MisplacedFromPa

Bev Sykes

Holiday Diary -- AliCrafter

October 2021 Journal -- Krista Lewis

If anyone has any of my journals that they don't wish to keep, I'd be quite happy to have them returned. I can Venmo you the shipping cost or even print out a mailing label and email it to you.

You don't have to ask for YOUR journal back, I am quite happy to keep them in my collection. I've really truly enjoyed having them. :)

Ratings

I will be honest and tell you that I hate the rating system on here. It makes me feel like we are in elementary or high school again and competing in a popularity contest.

Case in point, I work really hard on a swap and try to make it nice for you. I think I did a amazing job and send it off to you. You get it and think, “ Eh, it’s alright but she didn’t send me any extras.” So you rate me a 5 instead of a 5 ❤️.

In my opinion there should be 2 ratings. Did you get it?: Yes or No. if you get too many No ratings then you get booted out. Simple as that.

I only give one rating and this will not make me popular. If I get something I will rate a 5 ❤️ because I appreciate you. If something is late or lost that is life. I never use a 3. If I never get something then I use the “I don’t wish to leave a rating at this time” option and then I archive the swap. I am not going to harass the person over a postcard or a letter.

When I join a swap I take the risk that I may never get anything in return. I don’t stress over it. I join because I LOVE sending things to new people.

I will mail to you. I will try my best to make it nice. I will rate you when I get your mailings to me.

End of story.

Comment: Great cards, thank you so much! But I like the tiny envelopes even more, they're perfect! And going forward I just wanted to let you know that if you have me for a partner in more than one swap at the same time again, I'm totally ok with you mailing them in the same envelope as long as both swap titles are on it.

Comment: Oh my gosh! I'm so flabbergasted with the beautiful diamond painted bookmarks you sent me!! They are gorgeous! I've seen this technique, and it is very time consuming. Thank you for taking the time to create these over the top, beautiful bookmarks for me!! 💗 We will have to find other groups to swap in now ☹. Unless you want to take over this group 😉 She might let you (?). Thank you again... these are more frame-worthy than book-worthy!
