I give out hearts when I REALLY like something. It would be better to give something that is something my profile really likes, then fill the package with random things that I may or may not like.
If you think you deserved a heart, and I didn't give it to you, feel free to message me and we can talk.
convercely, don't feel like you HAVE to heart me too, unless you LOVE my swaps (lately I have not been able to do the little extras that people love) don't feel like you need to heart me. but if you DO NOT like it, please message me and tell me what you think. I want to learn.
