About Me

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****

I am also a member of the Letter Writers Allience clickhere

I will be taking a break from swapping Oct 31st until January 4th 2018

I usually send out type 2 swaps as soon as partners are assigned or within 24 hours.

I have reached my Goal of 30 letters in the month of April for the write_on challenge
