My Mail Please Read

09/12/21. I have received several rude messages about why i was not rated. And some very cryptic messages bout my items getting rated. Please just be straight forward and nice!!!!

I dont read minds, and i dont beat round bush.

When i contact someone about a swap i do use swap name in the subject. And then i ask if they would like to resend now or wait. I dont just state i have received the swap. To me that um ok so what would you like me to do?? Resend. Wait??

So please lets just get to the point. Ask me to resend when you reach out to me please.

It saves alot of stress on me. Alot of back and forth between us. Alot of guessing.

We are adults and this is supposed to be fun. Not a job. When i contact partners i wait a few extra weeks and then let them know unfortunately i didnt receive the item and ask if they are able resend. And then work out a resend date. Its that easy to be nice and be an adult. Thank you


Its people like this makes swap bot not fun. Makes others want to stop. @ KarlaKC has been a thorn in my side since about October. Not sure what i did to her with all the 5’s and hearts i left her but guess she has to pick on someone. So she rated a 3 after a huge mess over the swap. No help from the host either. I do not recommend being in that hosts swaps or swapping with her. Host beware!! Tracking for animals in snow: Tracking Number: 70200090000211301213. Yes i even paid to have karla sign so i know she would get it. Just so it would be 5.


Please do NOT tape the envelopes like it contains a mission from Inspector Gadget. I need room to open with a letter opener or my finger as sometimes i rate while we are out and bout. When we have to told it to the sun or some type light to open there may not be a heart involved no matter the goodies. Thats a lot of work to open. Especially when the whole envelope is taped with packing tape. Ok rant over.

We go about once a week to the PO Box. Due to work its just easier on us this way.

I DO RATE when the mail comes in. Yes it may take me a few days but here is why: You spend time on making and sending the swap so I like to spend time enjoying my happy mail and giving everyone a personal rating.

***Please note the mail here is still messed up. sometimes its not picked up at my house like it should be and sometimes it takes 2 weeks to go from one side of town to the other. Allow EXTRA TIME before getting worked up that i did not rate you.

I hit send when i have my family place swaps in box at my home address. It may be placed in the box after the mail has been picked up. As we never know when it run here at the home address.

For Swaps

I do not try to rate down just because I do not like my mail. I rate based on the swap description. And I prefer to contact the host before i rate down.

***Please dont worry right now if its profile based. Im getting there >>>........>>>> again.. ugh!!!!!

*Handmade items are fine if the swap says handmade items may be sent. Or as extras.

*Christmas glitter, religious, non-religious, anything Christmas. you can send year round!! INCLUDE A TRADITIONAL GREETING IN THE CHRISTMAS CARDS PLEASE

** I do try to scrapbook swaps the best i can. postcards go in photo albums, letters in clear pages in binders, other stuff glued in my scrapbooks, journals, ect. stuff i cant use is passed along. But even that i take a photo and document it in the scrapbooks.

*Have me for 2 or more swaps at the same time or close to it???? Save the stamp and a Tree! send in one envelope. Please clearly mark which item is for which swap. Or just send me a pm letting me know.

links i use
