Updated September 19, 2018:
My move to Washington is back on! Spring/Summer 2019 is the goal to move there!
My swapping may be pretty sporadic for the near future, with all the repairs and packing we are doing before we sell this place. I will continue to do some email swaps.
I have decided to clear out my profile and leave most of my groups and start fresh when I come back next year. See ya then!
Due to the outrageous cost of even sending a postcard overseas, I can no longer join international swaps. :(
I normally go to my mailbox the day after delivery as it usually arrives very late in the afternoon. I try to rate as soon as I open my mail.
I try to always mail by the deadline or before. If you do not receive something, PLEASE make sure to contact me about it before rating. I cannot use Delivery Confirmation on all sends (post office won't let you on some of the small stuff ...)
I had issues with one swapper (back in early 2011) about one of my sends and she gave me a poor rating. She did not like my first send, so I offered to resend. She then said she did not receive my resend. I have offered to send copies of my Postal receipts/customs receipt, but she never responded. I have spent more on this one swap trying to satisfy her than I have on any 5 other swaps! It's very frustrating. She gave me a one rather than a 3!
I recycle nearly all the packaging I receive - envelopes/mailers, boxes, bubble wrap, tissue paper, newspaper, etc. I also use clean butcher paper, paper grocery bags, etc.
