About Me

UPDATE, 11-02-17 I will leave all updates up until Dec 31st 2017 LOL I am still working on my type 3 swaps, I should have 2 of them mailed on Monday, and another 2 mailed next Friday the 10th of Nov.

Just updating everyone, I hope you all had a Happy Halloween? Some of you may be getting holiday greeting cards from me, be on the look out, I will update my profile on who I mail to and when. Blessings to everyone

UPDATE 10/07/2017

The 12 Days of Christmas swaps will be canceled in my group, I am just over whelmed with swaps right now, I am finishing up 2 journals, then I have to move onto 5 pocket letters within the next month, plus another 12 Days swap. I am still going to break from Swap-Bot Oct 12th, until further notice BUT that doesn't mean I am NOT going to finish my swaps on time and mail on time, I just cannot handle anymore. I am being honest. If you have NOT received a swap from me, by all means message me, I will still be checking in, I ALWAYS MAIL!! That's all for now, have a great weekend everyone

UPDATE to likes and needs list.

I am looking for book pages, to do some crafting with my 4 yr old. small journals, any home schooling materials, like coloring pages (for kids), newspaper clippings, no politics please, I am open for private swapping :)

UPDATE 9-20-2017

I will not be hosting or joining any swaps after October, 12th 2017 I have a lot of issues to deal with, plus Layla needs dental surgery on 10-13-17 please pray for her, we need to stay on track with our Homeschooling. I will be up for 1 postage stamp swaps, letters and such. The 12 Days swaps in my group will still be happening.

I angel all my swaps, after a rate 1 is given, I keep my groups and swaps, flake and double profiler free, BUT sometimes, a not so good swapper can get in, which is why I have so many Co-Founders of my groups, they are exceptional swappers, and very highly rated.

From now on I will be more careful on which hosts and swaps I join. That's all I will say for now.

If your going to be late on a swap please message me, I will understand, BUT if you don't message me to let me know you will be late I will rate a 3, what's fare is fare. If you have NOT received a swap from me, please message me, I always mail my swaps, most of my swaps are mailed at the post office, unless they are 1 postage stamp swaps, they get mailed in the mail box. If i owe you postage i am more than happy to reimburse you. NONE of my swaps that I host are media mail. SO PLEASE DO NOT MAIL media mail. I had a nightmare with Media mail.

****I love snail mail of any kind****

Sorry for not posting yesterday. I had trouble getting online. I'm doing this now from my phone.

2 John 1:7 I say this because many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist.
