Comment: I never received anything from you, nor did I receive any communication from you. The deadline was June 30. I finally emailed you about the swap on July 31, however you have not read the email, even though you have been online as recently as today (August 12). I will re-rate if I ever get anything.
Comment: Thanks so much for the cute and shiny winter ATC! I love how the snowman looks so happy. Sorry for the late rating as I just got settled down from moving across several states in the US. Thanks again!!
Comment: Thank you very much for your ictures. I can recommend you "photobucket.com" to edit pictures. You can resize pictures at the edit section. I always use 280 x 280, which perfectly fits the wall of Swap-Bot.
Comment: Thank you SO much for the WONDERFUL mermaid. I love her. You really did such an exceptional job creating her. She is hanging ( or should I say, swimming) in my studio. I will cherish her. Thank you
Comment: Wow! This swap was so beautiful, everything was perfect. I'm so happy with all the wonderful stationery. The fruit snacks were a great idea. I totally loved the fruit bars. They are 100% vegetarian, it's been ages since I ate some candy and it was super yummy!:-D This parcel really screamed summer. Normally I'm not a summer person, but you made my summer fun. ^_^ Thank you! I'm really honored that you want to be penpals. If you want, I'll set up a private swap, that way we can still get ratings from it. But I can send a swap, at the earliest, around the 25th of this month. I've got many book review swaps first, wich includes a lot of reading. Just let me know if you still want to penpal with me. :-)
Comment: Update 28th of April: I received your parcel today. It were fun goodies. But however, you sent your package 7 weeks after the to-send date. I do need more communication. If I send you a message, I expect a response. I cannot give you a heart because of the lateness and the lack of communication. In a couple hours I will send a message to the host to explain the situation and that I've received your parcel. (I'm out for groceries first) I didn't rate the three because I think you're a good person at heart and I don't think you're a real flaker. I wanted to give you 2nd chance and I don't want to destroy your rating. But next time if anything happens please keep communicating, because otherwise I won't be so forgiving. The parcel was great by the way, lots of yummy goodies. Thank you.
Comment: I am very sorry for taking so long to rate! I had to take some time away for personal reasons and I just discovered a stack of envelopes that I forgot to rate.
Hope you had a wonderful holiday season!!
Response: Instead of messaging me that you didn't receive my email and waiting for a response, you give me a ONE! You sent this email yesterday and didn't even rate for a response. Really...? I just went to my sent emails, I sent this swap ON TIME and you email happens to be in it. I am resending this email to you right now... with a snap shot. Now I know of unfair rating. Does it really look like I would flake on Type 1 swap... I've been doing this swap forever! I will be posting a snap shot of the original email and this wrongful rating until change if ever. Please check you email and junk mail to be sure that their is no email... I just resent one. - Why are you rating me a ONE for in the November Playlist Swap. This is getting very upsetting now. I sent this swap on time and resent it with proof of me sending it on time... your email in bold. Please stop unfairly rating people who did nothing wrong. (Jan 5, 2014)
Comment: Thank you, Shakerra! The card you sent is very pretty and your letter was fun. Many of the same things were on my list, including Starbucks. â™¥ I love Starbucks at Christmas time. Hope you have a Merry one!
Comment: Thank you for the package. The scarf is great and the yarn will definitely be used. I have seen Cry Baby several times. I also like iggy pop and the other players in this movie. But this is one of Depps Funnier parts with a deep message. The other movies I don't know, so I'll check them out. Thanx again.
Response: Hey!! I am happy you received it so quickly. I just realized yesterday that I forgot to input you card into the box... I found it in my mail bag. I will send it out on Friday when I make it to the post office!!
Comment: Hi Shakerra! Wow, thank you so much for the lovely package that you sent me - it was beautifully put together. I really liked how you wrote a little blurb for each item explaining what it was/ why you included it. The nail polish is gorgeous, I can't wait to use it this Christmas! Thanks again, it was a pleasure doing this swap with you :-)
Response: Thank you for this rating, I am glad you liked everything. Your packaging is great... I would love to swap with you again!! :) Have a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! :)
Comment: Thank you so much for this fabulous box. The book is great, I haven't got that one. The socks are fantastic, perfect for keeping my toes warm! I will try the hand warmer when I am walking down to work. The chocolate is my favourite, and I can't wait to try a peppermint pattie.
Response: Thank you... I am glad you like everything.
Comment: Thank you so much for a wonderful and thoughtful package that arrived to me today! Wish I could give you ten hearts!!
have a great day! =)
Response: Thank you for this rating!! :) I received your package... thank you so, so, so much!! Everything was AMAZING... it has helped so much with Christmas being tomorrow! - Have a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! :)
Comment: Thank you for this lovely swap! I've been looking through my horoscopes and things dont look to good :(
Thank you for marking my birthday in the little tarot book. I hope I can realise my goals!
Thank you for taking part in my swap :3
Response: Thank you!! I am glad you liked everything! Have a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! :)
Comment: Your parcel arrived and I LOVE all that you sent! I apologise that I doubted you (8 weeks to arrive). I haven't looked at everything properly yet but I'm very happy and my kids will be too. I'd love to visit your area one day, the ephemera is fantastic. Would happily swap with you again in the future!
Response: Thank you!! :) I am glad you liked everything and I glad everything as sent! :)
Comment: Got the ATC and it's beautiful!!! I LOVE that song!!! Beautiful work, and thank you so much for the extras. If the original one ever gets here I'll be sure to let you know, and take a picture and/or send it to you! :) Thanks again for your efforts!!!
Response: Thank you!! I'm glad you received and liked it. If the original ever gets there, you could also pass it on in another swap. Thank you again.
Comment: Thank you! This was such a delightful little package to open, and full of such fun surprises! Even the box itself was a work of art! I loved that you included tiny notes on everything.... Wishing you a happy summer! :o)
Response: Thank you for the rating, glad you liked everything.
Comment: such neat penmanship ;-) and lovely ideas. Thanks for the treat of stickers. I tried a 'dance party' once but my dog didnt like it-- kept jumping on me & barking to make me stop, lol. I tried to get her to dance with me but she would have none of it. A fond memory though ;-)
Response: Thank you so much for the rating and heart!! :)
Response: Her letter was sent back to my permanent house. I go to school in Kingston, but just moved back home (3 hours away) a few days ago. I have been extremely busy and I found the letter sitting amongst a mountain of all my things - stating that it has been returned to me.
This is the email that I sent to her, also attaching photos. -----
I go to school at St.Lawrence College in Kingston, where your letter was written and I just came back home a few days ago.
I found your letter, which stated that i
My letter got sent back to me!!
I am almost certain that I put a stamp on it and now it is gone. It doesn't make sense to me! It obviously fell off of something because each time I send off mail, I go to the post office, where they paste the stamps on my letter. It's unfortunate and a waste of money.
I attached some pictures, proof that the letter was sent back to me. Please tell me if this your correct address?
Please change my rating once you receive it, because as you can see all my other partners for this swap received their letters... and I sent all the letters at the same exact time. I these letters off before the deadline, so I don't understand.
PLEASE tell me if this is the correct address on the envelope? Because your letter was written so long ago and I would like to send it back. Please rate me fairly after you receive this.
Comment: Great work...but it was late. I debated a few days whether to wait and rate a 3 or to rate now a 5. I decided a 5 but mostly because I just hate to rate low. Thanks for at least doing the work and getting it in.
Comment: Hi Shakerra, thank you for the wonderful tags! You have very neat handwriting. I am new to Canada so I appreciate the tips on places to visit and not to visit. I would love to visit Disney World. I wish you happy swapping and happy future travels. :)
Comment: Got your swap today. You sent me something with gluten in!! I can't eat gluten!! But don't worry, I gave it to my little sister.
Also, it was difficult to tell who the swap was from because there was no note or anything saying the swap it was from etc.
Could you PM me telling me how to use the tea sachets and hot chocolate sachet you sent me? I've never seen any like that so don't know how to use it...
Comment: Thank you for your playlist, I might listen to it as soon as the weather gets better in Germany because I actually prefer other sorts of music but hey, you graduate this summer and I'm happy for you!
Comment: Never received anything. I have contacted my swap partner but did not receive a reply, nor did she re-send the e-mail like I asked. Will gladly change this rating if I ever receive something. Edit: Received the forwarded e-mail. I always do check my junk mail first before contacting, but it was not in there either, and I contacted you well beforehand rating a 1. Thanks for resending.
Comment: Thank you SO MUCH! I wish wish WISH I could rate you more than once! I have actually been wanting to read the first book you sent (the Tsarina's Daughter) so I was super stoked to find it in there! Also, who knew ketchup chips were so nommy?! :D Ty!!!! WAY above and beyond! :)
Response: I am glad you liked everything and I am glad you received it so quickly. I thought it would take longer. Congratulations on coordinating a successful swap. :)
Comment: Good list! I've never heard of Case 39, but it sounds like something i'd watch. As for The Exorcist - watch it! It's classic! I don't think you'll be as scared by it as you might think. It's a pretty old movie so the effects are dated. It's still good, though.
Response: Thank you!! I will do it... I think I may watch it tomorrow, early in the morning... haha! :)
