This is a tally, mostly for me so I don't forget or overlook anyone: (I will remove these once the recipient has rcv'd /confirmed their items)
@dmarie FAD "I'm Practicing" tag:
U Owe Me:
I commit to rating you as soon as I receive the item(s). Guaranteed! If I haven't rcv'd it- I can't rate you!
I'll read your profiles and do my best to create something that has YOU in mind.
I WILL contact you via email to let you know that your item is en route to you.
I'll also have confirmation/tracking # information (except on Intl pkgs) for protection & peace-of-mind reassurance purposes.
IF after my email you have NOT received your item within a decent amount of time - PLEASE let me know immediately before considering rating me a 3 or a 1. I think it's fair that I have the opportunity to re-send! I will re-send it to you. I will NEVER not complete a swap. I refuse to flake/no send. I always send my swaps out! ALWAYS!
Please email me before rating me if you haven't rcv'd something from me. This will allow me time to re-send the item to you.
I USE recycled - gently-used boxes for shipping items. Please let me know if you prefer a new box.
I'm pretty easy to please! I just ask that you send something that you yourself would want to receive. Gently used items are welcome as long as they are clean and usable. Please no junk! I don't send it... Please don't send it to me! Be kind and thoughtful... I am.. I do!
Extras, Hearts & Rating: Extras are nice, but they won't automatically be grounds for a heart. I give hearts if you made my heart skip-a-beat :O) . I'd rather you spend quality time (I'm not asking forever) on a swap and send me something that makes my heart sing then just put it together and then send extras in hopes for a heart! - I rate fair too. See SB's Rating Criteria
Shipping/Mailing Swaps: I come from a smoke-free home! I have 2 boxer dogs, but they have thin & short coats- no worries there! No cats!
Swap Unto Others What You Would Have Them Swap Unto You
Happy Swapping & Creating!
