8.14.16... I am spending some time making amends today. I have 3 3's although it should be 5 or 6, I believe and will be sending those as well. I'm looking at the date that I wrote my Jan update and thinking about all that's happened between then and now. ADD meds, my birthday, a camping trip in NM and AZ that was very cool but ended a best friendship (for the better,) and so many other things that have blurred it all... I apologize for disappearing, for making a few people sad (which is more terrible than those words describe,) and not living up to my commitment as a good swapper. I hope for trust to be rebuilt with time and I'm managing my life differently now;) Hugs!xo
1.13.16... Today is the first day seeing the light on the other side of this and I am so grateful for others' understanding. I know I've shown it to others, but to be handed the same grace is just beyond words. Thank you;)
I've fallen behind and I fear that my ratings are soon to follow. I love your words and I'll be working to at least make any 1's into 3's. I just couldn't get out of the fog and depression of the holidays and weather we were having... constant rain and wondering where my packages were and where a couple were lost.
The mend is on. Ratings are coming today for those I haven't rated and making up everything is right behind. Hugs and love to all for reaching out and making me feel like I was more important than SwapBot. I know it sounds stupid, but it lifted a huge weight off my shoulders. Seriously. Thank you.
12.31.15 >>>DID NOT know that SAD was a real thing. I am about to get some three's. I am openly acknowledging this because I realize fully that I'm going to send late on a few upcoming swaps and I should have resent on a few that have not been received. I'm not asking for anyone to accept what's going on with me. Just know that you will receive your swap and I know you'll need to rate me down. I hate it, but I'm acknowledging what's going on with me and the effects it's going to have. I'm currently not reading group messages, but if anyone needs to message me, I'm online a few times a week as I'm finding out that social media depletes me more completely than even the depression I'm going through. I apologize for everything and will do my best to make them the most amazing swaps you receive, but I don't expect 5's. Thank you;)
12.15.15>>>I am happy to announce that our part of the neighborhood has a new mail man!!! Honestly, 'happy' is a strong word. On our first meeting, I asked him if he was afraid of rain... cue the blank stare on his part and walking away quickly... not promising. Lol... gah. We really are nice to them... I swear...
12.7.15>>> We're having an issue in our area with mail boxes being left open by our mailman or from people getting in them. Ours has always flopped open but I'm only missing 1 swap at this point in time. The rest of the neighborhood, however, also had open mailboxes... kinda surreal looking, actually... but scary. If I haven't rated you, please contact me. I do have two or three envies that arrived in the last day or so (because the mail came on Sunday... again.)
If you're missing something from me, please contact me because I do so love my ratings and will re-send in a heart beat (which I have only had to do 1 time so far.) I will check profiles before I resend, and before I angel, but I will resend. Please please please CONTACT me:)
Thank you so much ya'll! :)
If it says 'sent,' I swear I've sent it. The post doesn't run when it rains here. (I know. Insane, but we now get terrible bundles of mail on our doorstep on SUNDAYS because they don't run at all in heavy rain.) It just took a pocket letter a MONTH to travel to my partner.
So, I'll be taking a short break from swap bot (maybe not completely) during our 'monsoon season' which is what we call winter here in Texas. I just don't want people feeling flaked on or having to wait on swaps. It feels irresponsible when everyone else can get their stuff there in a reasonable time window.
Ok... I'm better and starting to freak out about these missing ratings... and a few missing swaps.
I do not host them because I do not want to send Internationally. There are exceptions, but for the most part, no.
If, however, I have posted a USA only swap, I ENCOURAGE others to take the initiative and just go ahead and copy to make an International swap. You don't even have to credit me with it because I'm pretty sure everything under the sun has been done. ;)
I recently purchased a 60% off birdcage from Michales (about $6) and am going to make a little 'white witch' or 'fairy tale white witch' dwelling/magickal space in it... If anyone wants to trade for anything they feel would go in here, I'm looking for everything for it;) Thanks!
Directed at the USPS (not at any amazing swappers...) Dear Mr. Postman. Why do you insist on giving everyone in my neighborhood the part time job of delivering random bits of mail for a 4 block radius? And why won't you pick up our mail? The flag is up. There is postage on it. So wtf, man? Thank you for bringing me my boxes, and I am getting my mail and meeting EVERYONE in my neighborhood, but I don't like you Mr. Postman. You're the worst out of the 6 we've had in the last 3 months. None of us own dogs or have hard to find house numbers... What did we do to you? Can you be bribed? I'll make you cookies... Maybe everyone could give you a dollar... gah.
Postcards: I keep getting them and I have them, so I'm going to put them to use. The following are my favorite kinds of naked ones I've gotten from friends and such:
*Big Eye Art
*Mail Art PC's
*Anything with weird or cool graphics (even if it's an ad card)
*Fantasy, pagan or witchy
I've asked about missing ratings and have been told that not everyone rates... what is up with that? I want my ratings... and I think everyone else wants their's too.

*zines on feminism, witchery, random amazingness
my mum's wine...lol...

-perfume samples --hard candy --Mickey Mouse and all of his traditional friends --dogs --Spongebob Squarepants --tea through the mail --the color yellow --I don't need any more notecards, please --sticky notes --fabric, ribbons, or buttons
--flowery, girlie things (I like the punk/girl/kawaii. Even grunge girl stuff, but I'm not a pretty, pretty princess.)
(I can't explain it, and I'm sorry. I just don't like them.)
SPIDERS>>if there is a way to give negative hearts or whatever, I will find it. Please please please no spiders. Thank you;)
ALSO: I can't have things with cat hair or cigarette smoke. I've only run into an issue once so far!

--League of Legends (I play Soraka, Teemo, and Kindred most heavily)
--Vampire Diaries and the Originals
--12 Monkeys (the TV show)
--Dr. Who --Minecraft
Like everyone else, I'm a bit weird, but I don't mind. I'd rather make things than buy them, and rather have things made for me for gifts! (Something I can't seem to get across to others...lol...I love all gifts anyway.) I am definitely a loner, but so friendly. It's a weird combination, so most just call me 'elusive in person.' I'm a bit boho/grunge/kawaii... it's a strange mix, but it's me:)
They are the 'baseball card' of the artists' world! Love them! I also have an obsession with mail art;)
My favorite number is 7;)
I knit, crochet and LOVE yarn and etc!
*mostly yarns I can knit into small clothes for my dolls;)
*sock, lace, and fingering weight yarns not found at Hobby Lobby, Michaels, Tuesday Morning and etc. (I said 'lust,' didn't I? Lol...)
*baby weight yarns for my amigurumis
***I love colors like celery, purples, some pinks, greys... and pretty variegated yarns... I'm not limited to these colors by any means, but have a dislike for primary colors like red, blue, yellow, and that stop light green color... gah.
*pretty stitch markers
*tiny Blythe clothing knitting patterns

My Etsy wishlist is on my profile for the purpose of inspiration and Etsy type swaps. :) So if you need a further idea, you can look there;)
*ephemera and interesting labels
*your handmade ATC's
*mail art in any theme, but I'd love: unicorns, historical figures, arcane or witchy, goddess, dragons, cute stuff... or just mail art by you!!!! :)
*zines--yours or some you want to get rid of
*AMAZING handmade or store-bought bookmarks
*anything with animals from my favs list up there;)
Please no postcards unless they're mail art by you.
I've gone through some changes in life over the past 6 months... I'm no longer participating in pagan swaps. I prefer not to be sent religious items of any kind unless it's a simple blessing from your heart (those are always welcome.)
Prayers are always coveted;) But I prefer not to be sent anything religious unless the swap calls for it;)
