About Me

I have fully caught up on all the swaps I was behind on and have rated the ones that I missed! I apologize to each and every one of you and I thoroughly appreciate all of your patience!!

i am from New Hampshire, USA and moved to Vermont, USA in 2020

I have a teenage daughter who, next fall, will be pursuing her degree in environmental science

I share my home with my husband and Lucy (shar-pei/pitbull mix), Bun-bun (long hair black cat) & Oakley (tabby kitten)

I have always loved giving presents and writing letters and sending items to people so i figure this is the best way to do all those things and meet people in the process!

if you don't get a swap from me, please either message me on here or email me - i usually login here at least every other day, so i'll definitely get your message! I always read profiles to best get a sense of who i am sending to and will usually send extra stuff! I also rate the same day i receive items

please please write the name of the swap and your swap-bot name somewhere on the envelope

Comment: Hey Erin! Thanks for the card! I am actually Canadian and have lived in the US for 10 years. It’s been a rough couple of years and I am glad to hear that you are doing okay! I live 20 minutes from Vermont and frequently go to Brattleboro! Jenny
Response: oh very cool! i love brattleboro!
Comment: Thanks for letting me get to know your critters.
Comment: Hi Erin. I never received your swap (which ended May 24) and we did initially exchange messages but you haven't read my June 25 message which asked if you wanted to check in by July 7. If you got overwhelmed or life just happens, that's AOK. Totally normal and totally human. Pls send me a message and we can totally sort this out together. But for this very second, I hope you're alright and still around. Cheers.
Response: sent you a pm

Hi! Hope you’ll consider joining the Washi Tape Lovers group swaps that are available! I was just made an officer a few days ago and am hoping to bring a little life into the group with some quick swaps. =)
