About Me

Update: my sincere apologies for my absence from swap Bot and the late ratings . The end of May 2020 my son was murdered , he was 29 and then a month later my sister was diagnosed with lung cancer stage 4 no treatment available. She lived with me until she died Oct 2020 I don’t want sympathy I just wanted my partners to understand the late ratings and the unanswered messages. I am not well enough to continue swapping at this time but I miss you all ! ❤️

ETSY swap list::


I don't know how to fix this and I am self-quarantined from my family who can help me :(

I usually order from SweetSuppliesStore owner:Eriko on etsy I like washi tapes from mt/maste

Hello: Swap Bot friends, I live on the south end of Vancouver Island BC Canada. "My Etsy Store" above is my wish-list...

Updated Postcard info: The absolute worst mail delivery service seems to be between Canada and the United States !!!

I find the amount of non-raters is a continual thorn in my side and I am quite discouraged with Swap Bot. I have recently joined Postcrossing and I look forward to not having to track others down for a simple rating. Thank you to those who take the time and are considerate enough to rate. You are the best!!!

For POSTCARD SWAPS : please send naked(stamped&posted)... ...Please put the date on the PC... If you dont put the swap name on: I cannot rate you! I take a digital photo of all PCs I send out, front and back views.Please dont send me homemade PC's unless the swap is for a homemade PC. Thank you.

NON-RATERS: Please just give a rating already... "The rating system is meant to help keep people honest and fair with their swaps.

Geraldine, please check your private messages!

RockyBeach on Jul 8, 2020:

Hello, please contact your your swap partner @YooperHill for the HMPC: Circle love - May swap. Your card seems to be MIA. Thank you!

Hi G,

I noticed you mention the trouble with the etsy url. It's the typical problem on swap-bot profiles. If you copy and paste the whole URL into the box the site adds http:// to the beginning so you end up with http://https//www.etsy.com/ca/people/nannydino?ref=hpsm&tab=items

Notice the double http://https// that breaks the link.

So just paste in the url without the https:// part. That is, just paste: www.etsy.com/ca/people/nannydino?ref=hpsm&tab=items into the box.

I hope this makes sense.

AmyMarie on Oct 20, 2019:

Oh Wow! Thank you SO MUCH for the wonderful astronomy stamps and the airmail labels sent in a fun airmail envelope with more great stamps. I am so grateful for your generosity. I'd give you 5 hearts if I could.

Frickenjazzed on Sep 7, 2019:

Hello! The resend for International Cut & Paste made it. It is an awesome card.

Keep your chin up!

vontakk on Aug 21, 2019:

Eeeee!!!! Got your RAK!! THANK YOU!!!! My mailbox has been so droopy for months and I loved it! Can you PM me your address again so I can send you some? I have fairy pcs right now!!!

banjobraids on Aug 15, 2019:

THANK YOU so much for this RAK card!!! It's incredible. It's so ME. I can't stop looking at all the tiny things. These turtle (tortoise?) stamps are so beautiful, too. One of my favorite things to do near here is visit the turtles that swim around in a pond. This has been a difficult week and your card really brightened it, thank you :):):) Happy swappping and happy summer :):):)

9O96O on Aug 9, 2019:

A RAK! Cool. My first. And you read my profile. Thanks for sending me one of my favourite (yet confusing -- the difference between tartan and plaid) things.
