Hello!

Feb 3 ‘18 - I’m back! January was full of ups and downs, but February is a new beginning! I can’t wait to start swapping again :)

Jan 1 ‘18 - Taking another break from swapping. I have a few family matters to tend to. My closest swap bot friends know the situation I’m in and I appreciate their understanding and kindness. I will not be checking swap bot messages on a daily basis, so please be patient if you are waiting on a response or group request approval. I apologize in advance for not being as active, but family comes first. I wish you all a very happy new year.

Nov. 3 '17- Taking a break from swapping publicly and in groups. I'm up for swapping privately with my swap friends and swappers who have a good reputation. I will still be monitoring my group and checking messages everyday.

Hello! My name is Jessica. I currently live in Florida with my wonderful hubby and our cute (and spoiled) Yorkie. I'm a true girly girl with a love for any and everything pastel pink and extra girly. IMO there can never be enough pink...the more pink, the better!

To make a long story short- My definition of perfection is being surrounded by girly things and laying in a bed w/ a fluffy blanket, wine, snacks and a good book or binge watching Netflix.

I created an Instagram account just for Swaps! I used to use Tumbler, but I decided to switch to Instagram! 💕Instagram: WARNING:SPOILERS

I run a group on Swap-Bot called Girly Things. Click on the hyperlink to see the kind of things we like to swap. If you like what you see and meet the requirements, feel free to send a request to join!

Glam Planning and Crafts

Planning out my week gives me inner peace or as the planner community would say, "Planner Peace." I love to decorate weekly layouts with lots of planner stickers and washi tape.

Likes and Dislikes

Likes

Swapping!

  • I love to look at my assigned partners profile for their likes, dislikes and wish list! I even look at my partners prolfile for senders choice swaps! I want my partner to enjoy and possibly LOVE the swap I send them ☺️

  • I love profile-based swaps! Most of the swaps I join will be "Type 3" - profile based or "Type 2" Happy Flat Mail Swaps.

Favorite Foods:

  • Bubblegum flavored Jelly bellys (automatic ❤️)

  • Gaint Chewy Sweettarts (the 4 pack) (automatic ❤️)

  • Airheads (Automatic heart ❤️)

  • Marshmallows

  • Cinnabon popcorn

  • Gummi candy

  • Regular Rice Krispie Treats (no flavors like chocolate etc. )

  • Bubble gum and bubblegum flavored candies

  • Cotton candy (actual cotton candy and cotton candy flavored edibles)

  • Cheese curls

  • Project 7 Rainbow Ice gum

  • Any candy that looks girly and pretty (like from Sugarfina)

I'm definitely a foodie and love to try new things. It always makes me happy to receive little surprise treats in a swap- from the US or a different country. I love to try those crazy/wacky flavored edibles :)

Favorite Colors:

  • Pale Pink

  • Black

  • Black and White

Beauty:

  • perfume, blush, bronzer, lipglosses, lipstick, makeup setting spray, eyeliner and mascara.

  • Favorite Holidays: Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter annnnnnnd My Birthday (yep...my birthday is a holiday in my head LoL!)

Dislikes

  • Unless I join a Washi tape swap, please do not send washi tape (rolls or samples). My addiction to washi tape is undeniable (LOL) but, since joining Swap-Bot I have accumulated 3 big Rubbermaid containers of washi and I'm running out of storage space LOL!

  • Snack cakes (e.g. Tastycakes, Little Debbie etc.).

  • Coconut, raisins or dried fruit.

  • Valentines Day conversational hearts candy

  • Strawberry flavored sweets/food

  • Jelly filled sweets

  • I love Marshmallows, but I ABSOLUTELY HATE Peeps!! Yuck! 😝

  • Scrap pieces of paper or partially used sticky notes/notepads.

  • I do not have any kids. Please do not send any kiddie toys or trinkets. I do love Kawaii/Hello Kitty plush toys and little lipglosses (e.g. Lip Smackers), but I do not have a use for plastic kid toys. **Cartoon stickers, stationary and pens are welcomed, being as though I can use them when paper crafting! ☺️

  • ATCs (Artist Trading Cards). They are cool, just not my thing.

  • old or worn looking items. I hate that. I’m talking about the items that look like they have been sitting in a drawer for years that a person just wants to get rid of, so they decide to throw them in a swap package. IMO it is rude and inconsiderate. Send me items that you would want to receive. Unless it is vintage or an antique, please send me USABLE items that are in good quality when swapping with me.

  • Please no keychains! Unless they are super girly, pink/pastel, glittery (like the ones you can find at Charlotte Russe or Claire's) then please do not send them.

  • Themes and topics that I don't care for: birds, landscapes/scenery, wilderness, insects and pictures of animals (with the exception of puppies, small dogs and cute kittens).

  • I love receiving different snacks and sweets! BUT please only send STORE BOUGHT/FACTORY SEALED edibles...nothing homemade. Thanks :)

I will never rate down if I receive something from my dislike list. As long as the swap meets the requirements you will always receive a "5" rating from me. ☺️

How I rate & Swap Information

As soon as I receive a swap, I open it! What can I say - I LOVE happy mail! 😍 I rate the same day I receive a swap for two reasons- 1. Because I know there are some people who want to get rated asap (nothing wrong with that- I'm the same way 😉) and 2. So my partner knows I received the swap!! ❤️

I will always rate for quality not quantity. IMHO sending extras is a very nice gesture, but if they are on my "dislike" list then the "extras" aren't really extras. I rather recieve a swap that doesn't include extras, but contains quality items that I love, than to recieve a swap full of extras that I will never use. And I know a lot of swappers will say, "well you can just pass the "extras" on in another swap." But, I feel that swapping should be fun and tailored towards your assigned partner, not your assigned partner's "future" partner.

10-1-2016 : How I will begin rating:

  • 5 rating w/heart : A swap that makes me happy and smile ☺️ I can tell my partner looked at my profile for ideas and sent something I REALLY love. I like to give hearts for thoughtful, well put together swaps.

  • 5 rating : The swap I received met the requirements.

  • 3 rating : Swap was late or didn't meet the requirements. (Life happens and sometimes takes precedence over a swap "send by" date lol Just communicate with me. I'm very understanding and hate rating under a five)

  • 1 rating : Never received swap.

I DO NOT FLAKE!! I usually try to mail off my swaps well before the "deadline date." If there is an issue with a swap that I have sent or if you haven’t received a swap from me, please consider messaging or emailing me first BEFORE rating me below a 5. Give me chance to rectify/resolve the issue. When swapping, communication is a big factor. I vow to respond to all messages I receive in a timely manner.

I'm VERY selective when joining swaps. I ALWAYS make sure of three things: 1. I can send the items on time 2. I can (hopefully) make my partner happy and 3. I can afford to participate in the swap.

Updates!!

Update 9/14/17 : Finally back in our home! I will be sending out swaps ASAP! Thank you to my partners for understanding!!

Update 9/6/2017 : Florida is under a State of Emergency because Hurricane Irma is heading our way! We are evacuating our home and staying with family. I will not be able to send, receive or rate any swaps for the next 4-5 days. Any swap partners that I need to send to have been contacted and informed of the situation. To all my Florida swap friends- Please be safe!

8-10-2017 : For some strange reason I'm not receiving an alert to my email when another swapper sends a PM, rates me for a swap or leaves a comment on my profile. Anyone else having this issue? I usually check swap-bot everyday at least once a day, but please understand the situation if I don't respond in a timely manner :-)

6-12-2017 : We made a big move from Maryland to Florida. We just spent our first week in our new place and we love it!! I've located our local post office and can't wait to start mailing swaps!

10-12-2016 : I'm currently going through the vast list of Swap-Bot Groups I belong to and "leaving" the group if I'm not regularly active in the groups swaps. Swap-Bot is such an awesome hobby and I want to make the most out of the swaps and groups I join. Just an FYI- me leaving the group isn't because of anything personal, I just want to belong to groups that I can be more active in ☺️

9-20-2016 : Loving all the Fall and Halloween themed swaps I see. This time of the year makes me feel warm and cozy.

9-19-2016 : I'm taking a break on hosting public swaps. I do not know how long my break will last, but I've had way too many complications (no-sends, late sends etc.). I'm shocked at how many ADULTS do not follow rules and/or follow through with sending swaps THEY SIGNED UP FOR. I'm still up for hosting private swaps with swappers I know to be honest and/or established swappers.

Flakers!!

Flakers! :

The people I have added to this category have been contacted multiple times by either PM or email and I've never received a response.

Swaps I joined that someone flaked on me:

Swap : GT - Secret Santa - USA Flaker - @pinkpolarbear Never recieved anything. Plus no one to angel since I hosted the swap 😭

Swap : Beauty Samples- international. Flaker- @dorkyprincess coordinator: @thaibodian1413

swaps I coordinated and someone flaked on another swapper:

Me Time Swap- August : @jennymomma flaked on @bluesky

Minimergency Swap - @jennymomma flaked on @spicemom

Comment: Hey girl, I'm SO happy to say I've finally received your swap, yay! This one took over three months because our Customs office had to move their warehouse to another area in the airport and most of my mail was delayed because of that. Having said that, I'm still glad I got your package safe and sound and it's the most amazing thing ever! Thank you so much for all the fun goodies, I loved the kitty porcelain tray, and I was just wondering lately what to put on this new little table I got and this will look perfect! I also loved everything else, the makeup, the craft goodies, the tea and the presents for the kitties, they LOVED them! Thank you so much! Hope it's all going well with you and we can keep on swapping :) Have a fun February!
Response: Yay! Happy your gifts arrived safely! I had so much fun picking everything out for you! I hope you are enjoying your new apartment and you enjoyed Valentine’s Day. I will email you soon! XOXO 😘

Comment: Sweet Jessica, what an amazing swap this was! I loved the pretty envelope and the amazing goodies. Did you make that cute clip with ribbon? It's gorgeous, I've never seen anything like that but I absolutely love it. The rest of the items are amazing as well, and they made it in perfect time! I loved the handmade card and your handwriting! For Halloween I usually celebrate my cat's birthday during the day hehe and then have a costume party at home with my family and I love handing out candy to my cute little neighbors :) I am still deciding what I'll be wearing this year for Halloween, hope you find a fun party, or have your own, either way, have a super fun Halloween! See you again in our Christmas swap <3
Response: Oh yay! I’m so happy it arrived safely. I’m always a little worried when it comes to international mail. Thank you for your kind words. Yes, I made the clip ❤️ Your Halloween plans sounds perfect! Have fun! P.S. I’m so excited for our Christmas Swap!! 💕
