Comment: this was a requirement:
IMPORTANT: Each entry should be something of substance. A few stickers on a page doesn't count. A FEW SENTENCES ON A PAGE AND NOTHING ELSE DOES NOT COUNT! Put some thought and work into this so that your partner receives something that they will enjoy. Do not send a journal you wouldn't wanna receive.
this is EXACTLY what I got
->a few sentences and a sticker
->a few sentences and a car rental pamphlet
each page must have taken less than 20 seconds
went straight into the trash
Comment: I thought about this rating for a while because the swap rules specifically said the swap is sender's choice. However, the swap rules also said to send things that are "useful", no trash. Unfortunately the envelope you sent included an absolutely filthy postcard, and poor-quality free tourist maps and leaflets, most of which are bent and/or have dog-ears - I wouldn't classify these items as useful. It all feels like an assortment of things you wanted to get rid off... The swap rules also specifically said to nicely decorate the envelope. I'm sorry but slapping on a handful of poor quality stickers is not a decorated envelope. I'm very disappointed.
Comment: I'm sorry I have to give you a 3. You did re-sent me but I only received the postcard, no key-chain. Our countries are very close and it should not take that much time for something to reach me. I can change the rating if the swap is completed in full some day.
Comment: The first one got lost in mail. She said she'd be happy to resend it. It got resent and as of Nov. 14, 2018 I still haven't recieved it. Will be happy to change the rating when I do recieve it. Update: I received the swap on 12/4/18. Thanks for the resend.
Response: I hope you have gotten it this time I have sent out again
Comment: i don t want to rate you down, but i just wanted to let you know that some of the teas were old and there was an expiring date 2 months ago also this little purse is dirty and full of animal hair.
Comment: Thank you for the nice PC from Crete. Unfortunately, the envelope has been tampered with & the Key Chain is missing. No need to resend. It's not your fault. But it might be a good idea to use a more secure packaging in future, such as a padded bag. This isn't the first time this has happened. Regards Mark :-(
Comment: Thank you so much for the Magazine😊. Sorry for the delay in the Rating but I was traveling and I came home yesterday. I hope you will soon receive the package I sent you back. For any problem write to me😊
Comment: Greetings. I've received a letter from you marked "PC & Key Chain swap April." BUT I received your swap on 18th April & have already rated you for it. I've also received & rated you for PC & Souvenir #2 (28th April). So I'm guessing that what I received today is for PC & Souvenir #1. Which is what I'm now rating you for. Anyhow.........THANK YOU!!! :-)
Comment: This 5 was obtained by resending twice. It's sad for a birthday swap to be sent things which are clearly just from other received swaps or are lying around and this was true of every item of the 3 packages. Value was £5 and the first package was a scruffy second hand book not even faintly related to any interests of mine. The third one included an old battered keyring. A couple of items across packages 2 and 3 just about met the value when combined. Natasa was prompt and reliable when resending, but it would have been nice for a birthday swap to receive something aimed at me and not just what happened to be lying around the house. It wasn't a scavenger hunt, it was a gift :(
Comment: Thank you for the postcards. I did not get a small gift like the swap said so I had to mark you as a 3. I do really like the postcards
Edit: thank you so much for your gift. I really love it! The beads are awesome (I do beading so love beads). I appreciate you fixing the problem with the swap it was very kind of you.
Response: I am so sorry. I will send something else as I ws sure I did put it in the envelope.
Comment: Thank you I liked the magnet and the card,however the envelope had no postage on it whatsoever so I had to pay Â£2 due postage.
Update not a problem please don't send anything else I am sure it was just a blip with the post office, these things happen,
Response: I am so sorry about that. I took it to the post office and I have no idea why the stamp was not on it. Would you like something else for me to send?
ok thanks I will look forward to having you as a partner in anothe swap and I can send something else with it to make it up.
Comment: Wow! Four postcards! This is fun! Thanks for the big envelope from Greece! I was a little worried, because the envelope flap was open, but all the postcards and your note was inside, so all is good! Thank you! I love the Greece postcard!
Comment: Hello! I just received your journal today! I am absolutely in love with everything. I already read the whole thing! You are such a sweet person. You truly went above and beyond. Thank you! If you don't mind, I'd love to write back to you. :)
Response: I am so glad you got it and liked it. i would love to hear from you.
Comment: Finally I got it :) it came all crumpled. And unfortunately there were nothing to wear in an envelope. But the envelope was torn, I think that it was simply lost, right? What did you send me as "something to wear"? :)
Comment: Natasa, thank you very much, that was completely unexpected great surprise! I could not believe till today that there was a parcel waiting for me in the post office, however when I got it that definitely made me smile, and I hope this otebook will keep lifting my spirits for a long time:) Than you very much!!!
Comment: I received nice gifts from you today !
I was worrying that it might not reach....
They are looks like very yummy !!
I really look forward to try them.
Thank you so much!!
Thanks ÎµÏ…Ï‡Î±ÏÎ¹ÏƒÏ„ÏŽ ã‚ã‚ŠãŒã¨ã† arigato.
Comment: Again thanks so much for resending your swap, I really wonder what happened to the first one. You may want to use a bubble mailer next time though, because this one was almost falling apart. :) <3!!!
Comment: Hi Thanks for the envelop with the items for the knapsack. unfortunately you didn't put in in a Knapsack and the text isn't on the paper as well as I mentioned. The purpose was the have a little bag of hope. To put some where or the carry with you. Like a little medallion ect ect. I don't want to give you a 3 because the items are nice and you did make an effort. But is not what I mean to be honest. Take care
Response: i AM SORRY I MISS UNDERSTOOD HOW IT WAS MEANT TO BE.
Comment: Thank you so much for the really nice magnet. The first swaps got lost in the mail and never made it and I really appreciate all of the communication with me about it and your willingness to re-send so that I got the swap. Wish I could give you higher than a 5. ;-)
Comment: Thank you so much for this book :)! I just read one from this same author a while ago and liked it a lot. This is going to be a great summer read, I guess, so canÂ´t wait to get started. And love the book title!
Comment: The swap requirement was for a WALL calendar, you sent a desk calendar. You then said you would resend a wall calendar but its been 5 weeks and nothing has arrived yet. Will change if it does.
Comment: Thank you, Natasa! I loved your list & the PC you sent me. More than that even, I REALLY appreciate your communication through the postal mix-up. Thank you for your concern! Have a wonderful day. :)
Comment: Hi Natasa,
The first guide line of this swap is "Envie must have at least 3 postage stamps" but you affixed only 2 stamps.
The contents of your letter are awesome!
Anyway, I will leave a FIVE and a heart for you.
Thank you for those extras.
Comment: Thank you, I have received the hook. Please notice that this was a Christmas stocking stuffer swap, and the gift was supposed to be wrapped. (From swap description: Please wrap the gifts in some gift wrap, so you donâ€™t ruin the surprise until Christmas.) Happy Christmas waiting!
Comment: Hello! I have some great news! I got your packet today =) It's not lost! Thank you for all these things you sent for me =) Thank you! I'm so glad that I got this! My favorite is the Christmas decoration star.
Comment: I received a single double ended glitter gloss. This did not meet the swap requirement of 2 "bonnebell or higher quality" lip balms. Not only did it not meet the posted swap requirements, but it also came $1.62 postage due.
Comment: Hi Anastasia What an exciting day - I received your parcel with the two tea towels in it. It is so exciting to receive something from Greece (my first ever). Thanks again and I hope we swap again sometime - maybe I can be your partner next time.
Comment: Thank you so much, everything was lovely!! I'm sorry for rating so late, my internet connection has been very spotty, but I just wanted to say I truly appreciated your swap and you are awesome! :)
Comment: Dear Anastasia! Thank you!
I got your t-shirt in envelope and I got the notification about packet from Greece waiting for me at the post.
I think it is from you too. So if you want a t-shirt from Russia send me your address ;)
P.s. seems that it was so slow because you wrote the wrong postcode.
Response: I am so glad you got it. I hope it fits too. I am sorry for the mistake but at least you got it. I'd love a t-shirt. I will post you Thanks
Comment: hank you so much for all ov the lovely items! I was very surprised to see the beautiful necklace and the makeup bag etc.. in there... I was expecting all flat items. I love everything! tysm! â™¥
Response: glad you liked it. I tried to make it fun and interesting
Comment: While i was answering my mail, and also you the mail put the mail in my box. And also youre flatmail. I like it a lot..... Thanks for the sweets, i am gonna try them with the tea:). And i also like the excersice dvd:).
Comment: I have received a book and some other items, but no letter and as the letter was a very important part of this swap I can't rate you a 5. I told you the letter was still missing and you promised to send it, but it's a month after the swap deadline and I haven't received it. I'm running out of patience, you were my partner in two swaps and you messed up both of them and ruined the fun for me and never tried to fix it.
Comment: I very much enjoyed reading the journal! I sure hope your tooth is better! I know that kind of pain myself! Ouch! Also thank you so much for the DVD! As soon as I get the chance I will watch it! Hope to stay in contact with you!
Comment: Dear Anastasia! I was so surprised and excited today:) I've never expected to recieve such beautiful dress in sticker swap:) How do you know my size? It's just for me! Thank you very-very much! Stickers and others are also beautiful!
Comment: I'm very sorry, I can't rate you a 5 for that swap. You didn't meet the requirements as you didn't follow the instructions of when to send the items and didn't communicate any problems with those dates before being late sending the items. Also there was supposed to be a note along with each week's swap, not just a post-it with the name of the swap. The quality of the items didn't make up for them being late, also. For example I was sent coffee with a best before date of 2012.
Comment: Thanks for the stickers. However, the envelope needed to be addressed to the child, not me. The main reason I joined the swap was for my child to get mail addressed to her and so would have the excitment of opening her own mail. Please make sure that you read ALL of the swap before sending out.
Comment: Thanks Natasa! I will be planting more seeds hopefully this week and I used the blue baby carriage keychain as part of a gift decoration for a baby shower I attended this last weekend, so thanks a bunch (and also for the friendly reminder). Take Care & Happy Swapping!
Comment: Thank you! They finally arrived! I'm looking forward to opening them in December =) I don't think you read the swap requirements though, these are not marked with who they are from, and have no way to hang them, two important parts of the swap =/
Comment: You know, when I read your list, I was thinking that it wasn't like what the swap said to do. Then once I read it, I realized that I needed to hear exactly what you said, right at this time. I don't know what inspired you to say those things to me, but I really really appreciate it. Thank you for your message! :)
Response: glad I was able to help.If you would like we can write each other.
Comment: Yay! What a great swap. It finally arrived! I think what happened was, you accidentally forgot to put my zip code on the package. But it got to me somehow! :-D And the day before my birthday, too. Just perfect. I love the beautiful blousy top. Thank you very much! (I have a 10 y/o daughter, too.)
Response: great. I am glad it got to you. You think our girls can start writing each other?
i'm awfully late for getting you rated!
i was excited to get your letter &
intend to reply asap =)
> thanks so much for reminding me
... sad somehow it got *forgotten*,
but i was pleasantly surprised to get your
wonderful letter all the way from greece
& hope we can continue as penpals!!!!!!!!
Comment: Got your package today! It arrived with a little rip in it but I think everything got her okay! Thanks so much for everything!! I love the dress! I'm importing the CD into my computer right now :) Thanks a bunch!
