About Me

15 Apr - MOVING SOON - mail will be forward and I'll join international swaps when we get to the new location!

4/1/2021 I've been reaching out to partners (and partners has contacted me also) - seems there's a slowness in the mail - not sure why? US postal customers should sign up for FREE "Informed Delivery" which emails a scan/pic of every piece of mail being delivered daily. Highly recommend. It shows me incoming swap-bot mail.

PHOTOs- I take photos of all my swaps & envie's before I send them out - so I will email a copy of the photos if something goes awry or gaga with the US post to verify that I'm not a flaker or flaking. Please let me know if there's a problem and I'll gladly send it again. {Lessons learned from 2020 & COVID19}

I will contact you if my swap doesn't get there within a reasonable time because I like to know if the time & effort I spent making a gift made it to you. Do me the CURTSEY of acknowledging my efforts timely. RESPECT for all.

Aloha! I give โค๏ธโค๏ธ BECAUSE in a world full of people judging, criticizing, thumbs up/down, like/disliking everything, if someone took the time out of their day to buy a stamp, send a card/note/letter, walk to the mailbox, etc... just to brighten my day, then I am grateful because nobody is forced to do anything they don't want to do.

So thanks in advance for giving of YOUR TIME, spending YOUR money to mail me your special creations. You didn't have to share so that speaks volumes of your character - in my humble opinion...if your dislike list is long, this too says much of your character. I'm here to learn and experience other people, not just "stuff" & "things".

I put a lot of thought & ๐Ÿ’• into sending out your happy mail because I want to bring a smile to your door.

โ€œHappiness is an attitude. We either make ourselves miserable, or happy and strong. The amount of work is the same.โ€
