01/07/2021: Another round of crazy postmarks/delivery times. All of these letters arrived today - 01/07/2021
Sooooo... Let me SHOW you how crazy mail is right now. I received three pieces of mail today (11/28/2020) and just happened to glance at the postmarks. Normally I don't but this time I was amazed at the range of dates and the time it took for delivery.
So this is why I don't get freaked out over postmarks! The mail will get here when it gets here. We just all need to be a little patient.
I promise I will rate you when I get your mail. If I've not rated you then I've not got your mail yet. Please don't send me "reminders" that I need to rate you. They aggravate me. I know how swap-bot works. Sorry, that is my only bit of grouch. I promise. :)
If anyone would be willing to do a private swap with me for playing cards that would be so wonderful. Just PM me with the cards you are willing to trade and I will set up a private swap. I joined a series of swaps but missed the Aces through Nines. The swap series is trading all four suits of one number (plus the face cards). It will look something like this:
For this swap send FOUR playing cards, each with a different design on back: Ace 𝙤𝙛 𝙎𝙋𝘼𝘿𝙀𝙎 - Ace 𝙤𝙛 𝘾𝙇𝙐𝘽𝙎 - Ace 𝙤𝙛 𝙃𝙀𝘼𝙍𝙏𝙎 - Ace 𝙤𝙛 𝘿𝙄𝘼𝙈𝙊𝙉𝘿𝙎
Please see the list below for the swaps I still need.
Aces: Thank you Marclively
Twos:Thank you Marclively
Threes: Thank you Juniestars
Fours: Thank you KellyR
Fives: Thank you Princess Leia
Sixes: Thank you Princess Leia
Sevens: Thank you CCMMSU
UPDATE 10/28/2019: My post lady Norma showed me this notice today when I picked up my mail. This may explain why mail is running so slow. Everyone just needs to be patient and understanding with each other. I RARELY if EVER mark a person a 3 for late mail. This place is supposed to be fun. As long as I get the swap I'm fine with it. I do like a heads up from my partner if you are mailing late but I'm always fine with it. No worries! I believe that the 3 rating should only be if someone totally ignored the swap rules, like you were supposed to mail 3 things and they only mailed 1 crusty piece of something. Other that, sheesh, give it a break and just have fun. It's mail folks, not life or death.
Standard Mail, also known as "bulk mail", is processed by the USPS on a “time available” basis. Standard mail is not forwarded or returned if undeliverable unless a special endorsement is used. Standard mail will typically be delivered in under 5 business days locally, but nationwide it could take 2 to 3 weeks.
I initially joined Swap-bot for the craft swapping but lately I've been in a creative funk. I don't know if my muse has gone on vacation or the crafty well has run dry but regardless I've not been doing much crafting swaps lately.
One of my favorite journal swaps are:
Playing Card Swaps
I also like to participate in a lot of letter writing swaps like Long Letter, 10 Page letter and etc.
I also love recipe exchange type swaps and join these quite often. This goes a long with my love of cooking.
Some of my favorite crafty things I love to do are:
Greeting Card Making
Swap-Bot Card Making
Interactive Mini Albums
Faux Stain Glass
(I'll Add more as I think of it)
If you are wondering on what kind of things I love getting I am going to try and keep a list here that I can update as I go along. These things may change so be sure to stop back from time to time if you are partnered with me. HAHAHAHA
Right now the favorite things on my wishlist are:
Washi Tape Samples
List Pad Paper
Mini blank journals
Pens and Markers Any Type
Stickers ( I love stickers but I never have enough to swap)
Address Labels (that you've made for me)
Swap-bot Swap Cards
I love real stamps on letters in place of metered mail if able.
PLEASE DON'T SEND ME:
Floral scented anything.
Musk or sandalwood based anything (allergic)
Ephemera (unless swap says to)
No horror related please.
Green Tea gives me headaches.
I decided to incorporate the Favorite Books, Music and Movie section all under one heading to save myself a category.
I honestly don't listen to a lot of music. Usually only when I'm driving in the car. Then the station is tuned to the local country station just because it is the station that comes in clearest. I actually cancelled my Sirius XM subscription because we didn't utilize it enough. I don't even have a radio in the house. hahahaha All my CDs are in storage and I only have two Adele Albums on my phone. That's about it.
Books: Books are my obsession. I listen to a lot of audiobooks. Thanks to the SEO Library Consortium which is the digital version of the library. I listen to about three or more books a week. In addition to that, I probably read 10 or more paper copy books per month.
My favorite genre of books is murder mystery and psychological thrillers. I really hate romance novels of any kind. They don't make sense to me. I also love YA dystopian books. I only like sci-fi if it falls into the dystopian genre.
I really like when they combine mystery with cooking like in Joanne Fluke's Hannah Swensen's Murder Mysteries.
Some of my favorite authors are:
Nora Roberts aka JD Robb
I love love love love movies! I'd love nothing more then to watch movies all day long for a living...hahahhaa. Unfortunately, they just won't pay me to do what I love.
Some of my favorite movies are: Jurassic Park (All), The Transporter (Jason Statham!!), Harry Potter (All), Practical Magic, The Mummy I & II, Men in Black (All), Anything with Will Smith in it, Anything with John Cusack in it. I have a not so secret crush on John Cusack....hahahaha.
Another actor that gets my heart jumping is Dwayne THE ROCK Johnson.... Hmmm. I would go watch a movie of him just sitting in a chair for 90 mins. hahahaha
I do like Romantic Comedy movies but I usually only watch them once and then I'm done. I prefer action movies or movies with strong leading women who can kick butt like Lara Croft Tomb Raider.
One of my favorite actresses of all time is Sandra Bullock. She is amazing, she can play almost any role from a ditzy knucklehead to a butt-buster kick butt woman! I really hate sport type movies but I think she did a fabulous job in The Blind Side. I've watched it several times because it was so good.
Now onto other favorite movies: I love love love old classic movies. Black and whites from the 30's, 40's and 50's. I love Cary Grant, Gene Kelley, Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers, Doris Day, Rock Hudson, Tony Randall, David Niven and many many more.
I wanted to add this section for swaps that included sending treats or snacks. I thought it much easier to list things here instead of having to give all the details over and over again for individual swaps.
Some of my favorite candies:
Tootie Rolls (original not fruity)
Caramel and chocolate combos.
I don't like solid chocolate bars or things like M&Ms
No Sour candy, Not a big hard candy person except for Rootbeer barrels and Horehound drops.
I'm a kid at heart and love gum. It's kind of hilarious how excited I get over a gumball machine. lol
I love getting different teas to taste. I really love fruity flavors. I don't like any form of mint tea though. PLEASE NO green tea. It gives me migraines. My FAVORITE tea is Twinings Australian Afternoon.
I don't like spicy anything. I love cheese doodle type things. Pass on BBQ unless it's the honey bbq. Don't like sour cream and onion or Salt and vinegar. Can't digest popcorn. White cheddar I have to be careful because a lot of companies use blue cheese as a base and I'm allergic to blue cheese. UM .. Maybe skip the savory snacks...LOL ... I'm a little picky.
Please skip. Once again I am very picky on cookies.
