I love swapping, I love finding out who my partner is and tailoring what I send for that swap to their personal tastes. I hope every partner I have loves the swap they get from me.
I try to reuse as much packaging as I can x
I will rate a swap as soon as it is physically in my hands, so if I haven't rated you for a swap, I haven't received it yet.
I do not rate down if I do not like a particular item, (as long as someone has paid attention to my profile & met swap requirements) I will just use it in another swap.
I will always rate and I hope that I get the same courtesy in return.
I am still waiting for several ratings, please rate!!!
