~If you have any issues with a swap I've sent, contact me before rating. I enjoy sending more than receiving and do not join swaps I cannot fulfill!~

Anything that fits my profile is always welcome!
So that means I love ones that are:
I try to be lenient and understanding. Life isn't always predictable, so unless someone is a serial flaker or late sender I like to give people another chance.
Newbies are welcome in ~most~ of my swaps, because I understand that people have to start somewhere to acquire a few ratings. More intense and time-consuming swaps will require slightly stricter guidelines.
I HATE people who critique every last detail, like postmarks that are a day or two "late", or measuring things to find them to be exact. If you do this and I find out you will be BANNED! Swapping is for FUN not critiquing every last detail!
To me a "filled out" profile is at least 2-3 sentences, or a paragraph. Some people aren't picky about what they get, and might not have a lot to say. I do not allow people with 'blank profiles', but If this bothers you, do not join my swaps.
If you are flaked on I will gladly send you something! I always expect people in my swaps to receive something. No one should feel left out! Send me a message and I'll take care of you! JUST BE SURE TO LET ME KNOW!
I DO NOT DO DRAMA. All drama queens will be blocked and banned. This includes people who argue about swap "types" and are generally nit-picky, or annoying to deal with in swaps. If you're gonna be a bitch, no one will want to swap with you! ;D
Once I block someone it is FINAL! I block people for a reason (usually because I have had a negative experience with you, or someone else has and I don't want to join that shit show). I do not remove blocks, do not get your friends to message me about it, thanks!
I typically assign partners within 24 hours of sign up deadline (3 am EST). If partners are not assigned within this time frame, feel free to PM me. I always try to get swap partners assigned as soon as possible, but we all have lives to live and cannot be online 24/7.
Send anything kinds of swaps or ones in which you can send ATC's, handmade items, or mail art are CLEARLY type 3 swaps since these are things that take time to create.
If you don't agree with how I do my swaps DON'T JOIN THEM! Simple as that. You will NOT be missed by anyone =D
