About Me

~* UPDATED July 18th 2011*~

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

I am super sorry to anyone waiting on something from me or that has been upset with my swaps - I have been in and out of hospital over the past 3-4 months very very sick and am in the middle of trying to find the time and energy to make up for any lost, damaged or purely unsure swaps, if you are missing something from me or not sure if I have posted please pm me before rating as I am trying my hardest to fix any mistakes. thank you.

I am a mummy to one beautiful little man and wife to one fantastic man. We live in Australia's Capital. I have a full time job at home raising my little man as well as a business making children's toys and clothing to sell. Massive fan of the colors deep purple, hot pink, bright blue and yellow at the moment. Love to sew, watch movies, facebook and go out and do mummy things such as have my nails & hair done, I also love catching up with friends as often as I can. :) Favorite food type - desserts, being a chef sweets are one thing chefs don't always get to play with now they are something I can't live without hehe, if you have a recipe or a new sweet you think I would like to try or something you can only get from where you live - please send it :)

Comment: Hi Kim, your envelope came in this morning and it was very colourful. Thank you very much. :o)
lunarwillow rated for Cute Socks #2 on Jun 23, 2011
Comment: I am a bit disappointed with this swap. Not only did you send late even though you clicked 'sent' before the deadline (the postmark clearly says June) but there is only one pair of socks when the swap requirement is to send two. I was really looking forward to this swap and I'm sorry but this is a '3' rating, definitely. I will pm you and change this rating if you resend and meet the requirements.
Response: Just pm'd you.
PrincessMoon rated for Cute Socks #2 on Jun 22, 2011

Response: If you can pm me your address sweetie I will resend another pair :) x

Comment: Thanks for the stickers...your son did a nice job picking them for me.
Comment: I got the pack in a express post envi so i presume this was the lastest one you sent but if another one arrives i will let you know
mappy rated for APRIL Colour Me Silly Swap! on Jun 18, 2011
Comment: Thankyou Kim I appreciate the resend. I am rating you a 3 because of all the drama that went along with the swap. I first notified you on 20/4 that the swap hadnt arrived and you said you would organise another one and get it in the post. After several messages ( in total 12) the swap was being sent with another swap via expresspost the other swap was marked as posted 23rd May. After it did not arrive I sent you a message asking for the tracking number so I could trace it myself. A few days later you contacted me to say whoops you overlooked posting it and you did post it again. I am not the first person to whom you have marked posted when infact it has not been posted. I appreciate the fact that your trying to sort out the 1 ratings you have been getting and get caught up on your swaps again. Honesty is the best policy.

Comment: Thank you for your lovely package
mappy rated for Ribbons, Ribbons, Ribbons Take 3 on Jun 16, 2011
Comment: Thanks for the ribbons Kim, I received them yesterday. I understand that you have been sick but I am dissapointed that it took so long for me to get them and that you had marked them posted on 23rd of May (3 days after the swap send date) when infact they werent posted until mid June. I might suggest not marking your swaps as posted until you pysically have them in the post box.
Strawberry rated for Lets S.W.A.P. on Jun 16, 2011
Comment: Thank you so much for all the fabulous stuff you sent me for this swap! I especially loved all the great cards & postcards, the butterfly buttons, the cute felt monkey bits (I'm meant to sew it together and stuff it, right? wasn't too sure about what some of the bits are - there were no instructions? lol) and the yummy smelling white musk & sandalwood incense sticks! You were so incredibly generous with your package - I really appreciate the effort so much; only wish I could give you more hearts! So here: <3 <3 <3 :D

Hi Kim, I wait quite a while before I let someone know I haven't received thier swap. I have yet to receive anything from the Stickers and a Note swap from May. I know how things can be late from Postcrossing and we did have a strike but now a great deal of time has gone by. If I haven't heard from you in a few days I will then rate.. Pat

kcivk24 on Jun 7, 2011:

Hi Kim, Just thought i would let you know i still haven't received your swap yet. It's 10 days since you said you sent it and i don't think it should take that long!!!

I love the name Riley, I am pregnant and am constantly looking for name ideas for this one. I already had the other 2 named by this time. I am a girly girl too. Anything pink, purple, or sparkly I have to get for my daughter! I recently got into sewing, I am trying to make 18 inch doll clothes. This is for the comment swap.
