You will find me mostly in paper swaps . I think paper is fantastic and a great way to communicate . Nothing like the smell and feel of real paper.

If you contact me saying you will be late with a swap then I will understand
HOWEVER I DONT CHASE SWAPS OR RATINGS .IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO MAKE SURE YOUR SWAP GOT TO ME NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND .
Things happen but communication should happen as well . thanks. Also should your swap come here ripped up then i wont rate you at all because that is neither your fault or mine .
I hope you understand that .
Also please message me for my zip code if you are sending a swap to me.
If you dont see a rating from me it is because i never got the swap from you and i do rate as soon as i get them .
