Comment: Thank you for the Doll, it is definitely purple. I am rating a 3 because the swap deadline was the 15, you marked sent on the 16th, contacted me on the 20th saying you cant find anything purple, postmarked on the 25. I do not think one should mark sent unless the item was sent, it would have been better to drop a note then saying its gonna be late. Sorry.
Comment: Thanks for the funky doll!
Unfortunately, this was postmarked 12 days after the swap deadline, and after you marked it as sent. While you did email me a week after the deadline, to let me know that it would be late -- that still doesn't qualify as meeting the swap requirements and I don't feel it would be honest of me to give you a '5'. If you can't make a swap deadline, it is good practice to let your partner know -before- or -on- the deadline, and not to mark 'sent' until you've actually sent something. Sorry...
ETA: no mention of a returned/mangled swap was ever made. Per your email (sent a week after you marked sent) "Hi Bean..im your partner for this swap and i wanted to throw you a quick note to let you know this went out late. Have no excuse..i just screwed up and lost track of time. I apologize and hope you can understand!" --- There simply isn't enough time for you to have sent me a package one week late, have it returned mangled with nothing in it, and resend within another 5 days. (meanwhile failing to mention any of that at all.) How do you lose track of time yet manage to mark sent on the deadline date??
Response: I understand wht you are saying.... But had you written me back after i wrote you would have found out that the package was sent back all torn up and item i made was gone. I made another item and sent it to u as fast as i could. Sorry...
Thats not what happened but thats fine..whatever you need to do.

Comment: Thank you for the very sophisticated page with the lovely use of color, texture and pattern. This will be a really nice addition to my book. I'm also very sorry about the delay in rating. I'm moving my 94-yr-old MIL into my house, and I had no idea how labor intensive it would be!! Kathy
Comment: Hi AmySue! I LOVE the goddess! The image, colors and technique! It's absolutely fabulous! Thank you so much for it, and the extras and taking the time to read my profile! I wish I could give you many more hearts!

Comment: Oh Amy, These are beautiful!!!! I hope you don't mind, I am going to put a stiff back on them and write your info again.... I just don't want my kids to tear them up while they look at them... THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!! I LOVE THEM!!!!!!
Comment: :0) It finally arrived - and I'm thrilled! You did a great job!! Thanks so much - my personal opinion is someone at the post office knew there was something fabulous in the package and wanted to keep it for themselves, lol
