Important Notes

I will rate quickly, usually right after I open the swap. I send on time and keep track to make sure my swap is received in a timely way. I care very much about what I send and try to send what I think my partner would like. If something is not okay please let me know. I am happy to resend if you do not receive my swap, so please let me know before rating if you did not get it.

I like to send extras that I think my partner will like and like to read my partner's profile to get to know them and what they like. Having said that, I rate solely on the swap item. Extras are nice and I love to send and receive them, but they are what they are, extras.

I have started using an at home mailing system using stamps.com. It is hard to get to the post office so my swaps are usually sent via the community post box. I print my own stamps. I am getting use to the scale and calculating postage, but it is still all new to me. I click sent when I put the swap in the post box so I do not forget to mark it sent. However, it usually will not be stamped at the post office until the following day. If you do not receive my swap, there is a chance I did not calculate the postage correctly. Just let me know, I am happy to resend. Thanks for your patience.

Misc. notes

I never received a rating from Kechell Jackson ( kisforkechell ) for CSG - Christmas Card Swap (deadline Dec. 10, 2016).
