SWAPPING NOTES

IMPORTANT: Nearly all of my incoming mail has been coming to me with slices on the bottom edge of the envelope so I recommend putting a bit of tape at the bottom edge of the envelope to keep things from spilling out.

DID YOU RECIEVE SOMETHING FROM ME WITH POSTAGE DUE? I am MORTIFIED. Let me send you the amount due and something special. Just PM me.

If you don't receive something in time from me, please email me. I will never flake. Creating and SENDING mail is my favorite part of writing and art/crafts. I have social anxiety and this is how I connect with people so it's important to me to maintain good friendships and swap partners/pen pals!

My swapbot habits: 99% of the time I rate as soon as i receive a swap. Check in with me if you haven't been rated. Every couple of weeks I go through my sent swaps and I check in with my partners to see if they've recieved my mail.

Comment: Thank you for the resend. I have no idea what happened to the first one. Great communication and fast resend! (Had to update)
Response: Oh you are so sweet! But I will put another one in the mail for you. I can’t have an unfulfilled swap on my conscious. LOL! I hate that it didn’t arrive but it’s bound to happen once or twice during these big postcard swaps. . Thank you for being so understanding. I’ll stick it in the mail for you tomorrow.

Happy Halloween!

wombatlady on Oct 15, 2018:

Haha, glad you found the postage link amusing as well as useful! He is very opinionated...that site has saved me a lot of headaches, though! Love your list of insect and spider likes - would love to swap ATCs sometimes if you're interested. :-)
