I don’t like it when my neighbours receive my mail, so when you sent a big envelop or package, which wont fit in my mailbox, please write on it: Gelieve NIET af te leveren bij de buren. (= Please don’t deliver to the neighbours) and I hope the mailman will read it, so I can pick it up myself at the postoffice.

If you would have any kind of problem with a swap from me, please sent me first a message about it so that we can come to a solution, before rating or giving a bad comment, thank you!

I'm not on the computer everyday, most of the time I check my messages on Wednesdays and Fridays.

Looking forward to swap with you! :)

Comment: Your package arrived! I had a lot of fun opening the items. LOVE all of the postcard choices! That cupcake book is too cute. Did you make the little owl? It's adorable. I'm leaving one package to open on Sunday with friends, to give them a feel for what I'm enjoying so much about Swapbot. Thank you, Phoenix! Hope you are having a fantastic week.
Response: I'm glad you like the things I have sent to you. No, I have bought the owl. Enjoy your last package on Sunday :) Thank you for the rating!

Comment: This swap finally arrived :) I love it all! I am so excited for the tomato soup!!! I love all the cupcake goodies especially the tiny book! THANK YOU!!!
Response: It is so unfair to rate me a one because I have contacted you first! You didn't even asked about it. First I let you know that the envelop, which I had sent on time, came back to me so that I had to resent it, and then I let you know that somebody else hadn't received the mail I had sent on 30 oct (which was still on time because the deadline was 31 oct), the same day as I had resent my envelop to you, I also let you know that I already contacted the postoffice and I'm still waiting for their answer, you could at least have waited for their answer too instead of rating me immediatly a one. And I also said that if the postoffice would let me know it is lost, I would resent. I'm sorry but I can't help it that they are slow in answering. I will update my respons when I get a reaction from them. But I do hope you will delete this one and have some patience. Thank you. UPDATE 21 NOV 2014: The post office let me know they aren’t able to track the envelop I have resent to you on 30 oct. In the evening of 30 oct and during the day of 31 oct there were strikes at the post, you can read an article (in Dutch, you can use google translate) about it here: [Strike at the postdistribution – and transportcentra from Brussel, Charleroi and Luik](http://www.hln.be/hln/nl/957/Binnenland/article/detail/2107295/2014/10/31/Staking-bij-postverdeel--en-transportcentra-van-Brussel-Charleroi-en-Luik.dhtml) So I asked the post if this is the reason (which I think it is) the envelop got lost, they avoided answering this question, so they also didn’t deny it. This weekend I will make you a new swap which I will sent on Monday 24 nov, but unfortunately there will be more strikes (every service not only / but including the post) here in Belgium starting on Monday: 24 nov: provinces Antwerpen, Limburg, Henegouwen en Luxemburg, 1 dec: provinces Oost- & West-Vlaanderen, Namen & Luik, 8 dec: provinces Vlaams- & Waals-Brabant & Brussel, 15 dec whole country, on 6 nov there already was a demonstration, so to give you an idea you can view this youtube video about it in English: [demonstration](http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4SX3vzDi0oc) So I do hope it will not get lost again! (I can also wait with sending until the strikes are over, if you wish this please let me know before Sunday evening, if not I sent it on Mon 24 nov) UPDATE 24 NOV 2014: thank you, I'm happy that it didn't got lost, but still disappointed about the one you gave me and because of that I had to resent it today, so you will receive a second envelop from me UPDATE 22 DEC 2014: Thank you for returning the 2nd envelop to me :)
Comment: Lovely swap, Lien. Your destash is valuable here in Ukraine. Will be great fun for my ladies and kids. I'm ready when you want to do it again.
Response: It was nice to swap again with you :) Have a lot of fun with crafting! :)

Hello! I just want to tell you that I really loved your Ephemera-swaps! If you ever want to do a similar private swap, then just let me know. I would set one up then, because I have used up nearly everything you sent : ) All the best, Kirsten
