Ladies, Let me just let everyone know, I am WAY BEHIND!! I got behind back in September and because of death and illness and have been working diligently trying to get caught up. I have sent out messages to everyone (if I have missed you plz let me know) letting you know what is going on. I am NOT a Flaker nor will I EVER be! If you do not recieve something from me either I am SICK or something is very wrong!!! I would greatly appreciate a kind reminder as to your not recieving anything if you have not heard from me rather than just assuming I am a flaker and leaving me a one. I would not do that to anyone and even though I am new I am still waiting on a couple of swap items myself. I so enjoy swap-bot and all of the wonderful creative ladies I have met and look forward to making some wonderful friends. So once again plz know I am just behind and have 3 more swaps to finsh and I will be all caught up through Dec!! YEAH!!!!! Have a blessed Thanksgiving Everyone!!
