IF you do not receive a swap from me, PLEASE contact me before rating. I always send out swaps ON TIME, unless otherwise communicated to my partner. Allow me the opportunity to resend it, because it probably got lost in the mail. When available, I always get a tracking number and I save receipts. So, proof is always available.
I reuse packaging
Check the last section of my profile for updates and other news.
I mark swaps as 'sent' when I have dropped it in the mailbox, sometimes that may be on a Sunday(in the USA no mail on Sundays) Or be on the deadline date of the swap (although I try very hard to send it a few days prior to that to avoid gray areas). That being said, my 'send date' and when the Post Office post marks it, may be different. Please refer to when Swap-Bot says I clicked send. Of course, I am human, so there may be the rare time that I forget to mark sent, I will send you a message communication this.
My name is Desiree and I live in NJ, I am married as of April 28th, 2018 and have no children. I enjoy swapping and have been on Swap-Bot for almost 10 years.
Things I enjoy are:
Kawaii (Sanrio, Hello Kitty, etc.)
Wine (not sending it, of course) but, I really like items that have wine bottles and wine themes on them.
Paris, I love designs with french words on them, especially love and romance theme and also items with the Eiffel tower on it. I really love the vintage Paris look and things that say "Carte Postale" on it.
New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco are my favorite U.S. cities, so anything with these cities on them are awesome.
Blank Recipe cards, especially cute designed ones
Recipe cards with a recipe on it
Tickets-- I really like the look of tickets such as movie tickets, plane tickets, the ticket shape, etc.
Stamps (rubber stamps either mounted or unmounted)
Religious -- While I do believe in God, I do not like it shoved in my face or forced upon me.
Cigarettes-- I hate the smell and I do not smoke
Licorice -- I am not a fan of it (example: Twizzlers)
Things that have a bad odor
No paper scraps
No food items/ expired items
Washi Tape (not from the dollar store, please)
Pocket letters-- have not received one yet, but looking forward to receiving one or maybe in the future creating a swap for one, soon as I get the hang of it!
Letter Sets -- any kind as long as it is matching paper and envie
ATC's--I enjoy collecting them.
Loose stationary; odds and ends stationary paper and envies that don't match.
Craft stuff(embellishments, journal cards, project life cards, tags, etc.)
Tim Holtz stuff
Any planner supplies
Cute sticky note pads (not plain Post-its)
rubber stamps (mounted or unmounted)
Tea -- while I like tea, I am noticing that I am not drinking what is being sent.
Christmas Items (even in season)- I don't do any Christmas crafts and those items will not get used by me.
Teacher stickers, reward stickers or overly juvenile stickers.
Planner pages, folders or dashboards with a 3 or 6 whole punch in it .I do not have that type of planner.
Dollar Store washi tapes- the quality is not good and does not stick.
