How I Swap

I rate according to the quality of the swap. I am easygoing and not stingy with 5s and hearts if I feel there is effort put into the swap. I do not expect extras.

If I get you as a partner, I will read your profile, look at your Flickr, Etsy, or anything else on SB in order to get a sense of your likes, dislikes, and style. I will put my best effort into swapping something I think you will love. I usually send little extras, but expect you to rate only on the quality of the swap itself.

I expect (and will give in return) timely communication and ratings.

I do not lightly rate someone down. I consider myself to be understanding and kind. However, if I feel that someone has egregiously taken advantage of that understanding nature, I will rate accordingly.

Things I Love/Hoard

Pretty wrapping supplies

Recipes using fresh peaches

Embroidery Floss

Paper stuff

Vintage paper stuff

New paper stuff

Crepe paper, kraft paper, manila paper, copy paper, tissue paper, toilet paper (!), cardboard, chipboard .... and the list goes on.

I love licorice pastels (but not so much plain black licorice)

I love chocolate with nuts (but not so much chocolate without nuts)

I like most everything and every flavor of everything!!

Comment: OMG!!!!! I can not believe all the amazing crafting goodies in this box! Paper upon paper and none that I have ever had. Some I had never seen before! Like the shimmer sheets! One made the cutest mermaid pocket for my great grand daughter’s mini journal I’m making her. Used my mermaid scales embossing folder in it. So so cute! And Washi out the wazoooo lol the tiny boxes of stickers, love them all. Birds & bunnies are my favorite. The watercolor paper notebook is great. I think I have about 6 pages in mine that size. Every single thing in the box will be used. I thank you from the bottom of my ❤️. It’s like winning the craft lottery. You’re so kind & generous with your giveaways. This definitely deserves more than one 5 & ❤️!
