About Me

About my 3 rating from 6/20: This swap was mailed on time, which my partner/host said she never received. When I found out she didn't receive this swap, I re-sent it. She has since received this re-send and rated me a 3 for this swap...PLEASE NOTE, mail all my swaps out on time. IF you don’t receive a swap from me, please let me know. I follow Swap-Bot etiquette by contacting my partner if I am missing a swap, and giving them a chance to re-send before rating. I appreciate when others give me the same courtesy.....Thank you so much

Since June 2020, I have been sending swaps through my work mailbox instead of leaving mail in my home mailbox for the postal person to pick up. I have noticed mail is getting to my partners in a more timely manner...

Hello. It's nice to "meet" you. My name is Kim and I'm a 49 year old mom of three. Tyler is 13, Hailee is 11 and Jaime (boy) is 5. Besides being a proud Mom I am also an Optician extraordinaire and one of my passions is to help others. Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, we moved to Washington State in June 2015 to be with my amazing Sweetie, Ron, and his 3 amazing kids (Rachel, 21, Randy 19 and Ryan, 17). We also have 2 dogs and 2 cats. (Who ever thought that 3 kids could be a lot "quieter". lol) Our house can be very crowded at times with us blending our families. Things are going great! I feel very blessed!

Favorite Crafts

I am a "Craft-a-holic" and have been doing some type of craft since I was 7 years old. I love doing pages in deco books, sticker books, and making greeting cards and mail art. I like incorporating a sense of humor in my work. My style is sort of collage, but I also use rubber stamps or draw by hand at times. I have recently gotten into zines, pocket letters and homemade postcards

Swap Pledge

I send ALL of my swaps out ON TIME, so if you don't receive your package, please let me know...Also, if you are late with a swap you are sending me, please let me know....THANKS!

I rate my swaps the same day, or day after, I get them. If I haven't rated you, it means I haven't gotten your swap. I DO send messages for swaps I haven't received and try to give my partner a chance to re-send a swap before I give a "1" rating.

Comment: Oh my goodness! Thank you so much for sending me such wonderful gifts. The way you decorated the envelope blew me away! Seriously, I could have stopped there and just given your five hearts. haha You really are a crafty lady. I love all of my vintage and retro themed gifts (and the many other gifts which were all profile based). I was so happy. My husband was laughing at me. haha I am not going to part with some of them-I just can't. Thank you so much again for one of the best swap gifts I have ever received, and for joining my swap.

Comment: I love the postcard! Hmm, growing up in a house with a ghost seems the least likely, so it must be true! I'd guess that you never knew your father is the lie.
Response: Both of these are true. I never knew my father, only his name (which is very common)
