About Me

I'm addicted to swap bot! I happened on it by chance almost 3 years ago and it's a paradise for a person like me who loves to send and receive Happy mail!! I Love 'meeting' people all over the world with similar interests...love ' getting to know' a person by reading their profile and like to put thought into the swap packages I send so that it brings a smile to their face and brightens their day! And love receiving a thoughtfully put swap! It really really brightens my day! So please do put a little effort into the swap as I do the same 😊

Favorite Crafts

Favourite crafts: Papercrafting mainly flip books, junk journals and cards. Love vintage, nostalgic, owls, butterflies,birds and flowers, coffee/tea theme

Love red, purple, mint green, silver and gold. Basically love colour.

Love pretty stationery and stickers ( no reward, stars and kiddie stickers please)

Pretty note cards

Love different paper clips

Love miniatures for crafting purpose

About Me

I'm married and have 2 kids...they're still in school. I run a preschool for small kids. I love to connect with people from all over the world...I feel that though we're from different countries and culture, we all share a common passion of paper crafting and that bonds us. I also love to travel with my family and have been lucky enough to travel world wide...we Usually travel abroad during summer and look forward to that...last summer we visited Greece, which was beautiful!

About Me

FOR TEA/COFFEE swaps

I drink both tea and coffee...I also love hot chocolate....please do not send any of these without their sealed bags...also please do not send these in place of a profile gift! While I drink these, I really don't get excited to receive these in place of a profile surprise! I've actually had people send me a teabag in place of a profile surprise gift!

FOR POSTCARD swap Love VINTAGE and animal postcards...Like travel post cards too. Also like steam punk. But please do not send me postcards unless it's specifically a postcard swap as I have collected enough over the past year! Please don't send me multi view postcards....

STAMPS: I collect postal stamps so please try to send your envelope with stamps instead of the digital one. Thanks

Favorite Books

FAVOURITE AUTHORS:

love romance and para normal...also like murder mysteries...I have grown up on Nancy Drew. Enjoy Mary Higgins Clark, dan brown, Nora Roberts, Kay hooper, Sydney Sheldon, maggie Shayne.... All time favourite authors are Judith Mcnaught and Lavyrle spencer.

About sending swaps

Please note: Please remember that I live in India and postage can take anywhere from 2 weeks to over a month sometimes.

I will always click the 'sent' button when (and only when) I have sent the swap.

I will always rate as soon as I have received a swap. ( as I get really happy to receive happy mail)

I will always do my best to contact a partner before rating anything below a 5.

I always send extras in a swap and only when I receive extras will I give a ❤️

Low rating

About the low rating....

I would just like to say that we all are here for the fun of it...let's not take things so seriously that instead of a pleasant hobby, this becomes something unpleasant....let's not act as if we have power over someone just because we can rate them down...you can be in the same boat tomorrow! I have always tried to be thoughtful and do my best while sending any swaps...for this particular swap also I did my best but she was not happy...I have messaged her and also resent her but gotten no response! Well, to each their own! Will chalk it up to a learning experience and move on....
