About Me

HEALTH ALERT: I am down with COVID as of 17th April. So all my swaps which are due beginning of may will be delayed. Sorry for the delay. But things are really chaotic here. This second wave of this pandemic in my country is really contagious and every house is affected. Lockdown has been announced again in lots of cities in India, in Delhi too. So post offices are shut. Let’s all pray 🙏🙏🙏

🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻If you have done atleast 30 type 2/3 swaps and do not have any recent low ratings then please feel free to join my swap group for fun crafty swaps.

I ❤️ swap bot! I love to send and receive Happy mail!! 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.

About Me

I'm married and have 2 kids...my son is 19 and off to university in Boston and my daughter is 12. 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...2 summers ago we visited Greece, which was beautiful! Last year was a bummer, travel wise!

About Me


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!

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

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.

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....

Comment: Hi Aparna, I am sincerely sorry for not rating your swap when the swap actually took place. I know the importance of giving a rating(s) as it helps in many ways. I know how I feel about getting ratings. It does take me time to get ratings done when I do them now, but I always get them done. So, my next goal is to work on being better with getting them done closer to on time. I appreciate your generosity on this swap. You made me a beautiful piece of paper art. I also appreciate the goodies you sent along as part of this swap. I also look forward to using the items in my future artwork. It was a pleasure to have you as a partner on Swap-bot. I hope we get to swap with one another again. Until we meet again, Happy Swapping!! Colorado mail in and out of the state has been slow, as well as, I am also awaiting low back surgery to help keep my chronic pain at a Level that is tolerable. I am sorry for the delay. Again, I am super sorry for the huge delay in your rating. Barb B. sleepingrover2010
Response: No worries...thank you for the sincere rating. Take care.
