About Me

This is something I actually have a really hard time saying but I've been having a tad bit of a problem with money and the person who was supposed to be mailing my swaps wasnt. So all the swaps will get there it will just take sometime to get postage again. I apologize profusely.

Well, its a new year so lets start some swapping again. I'm back from a 3+ year break? Wow. My tastes have changed a bit so i'll be updating this profile when I can.

Please let me know before you rate me a one/three. There are a lot of non-raters out there so I naturally assume that is what has happened. Please let me know you haven't received my swap!

Lets see.... I never like filling these out, its so hard for me!I have diverse tastes. I love to learn about/experience new things so throw your most eclectic ideas, crafts, and facts at me! I like to read, I like movies. I enjoy crafting but dont get much time to do.

I love languages. Im in university learning spanish, french, and japanese. I would like to learn more.
I love traveling.

I would ****love**** to recieve (Japanese) Kawaii things (sticker flakes/sacks, deco tape, memo pads, etc!!) Since kawaii swaps are quickly turning into my main type of swap, theres a section about my likes/dislikes a little below!

I will always rate my partners when I recieve things. I will notice if youve tried to include things I like from my profile, and I will love you for it! I tend not to rate down because you're a late, though please PM me first. I understand things come up.

I do re-gift/re-swap items that are not my style/I couldn't use. Please dont be offended, if you would like your items to not be re-gifted please tell me so. However, I will never re-gift/re-swap an item handmade for me. Ever.

Please don't send items that smell like smoke, thanks.

Generally, its easier for me to tell you things I dont like rather than things I do (because the things I do like are so varied)!! So here goes (haha after re-reading these I just noticed what does half of them have to do with swapping anyways?!? Im so silly sometimes)

-Meat/meat products/I have a preference on products not tested on animals or with no animal products in them as I am a vegetarian.

-Im not big on western religion/spirituality. While I am open to the fact that you are, I hope you can understand that im not.

-I have an intolerance for the intolerant. Conundrum, I know. I think you should be able to not hold the beliefs of others, but be able to respect them.

Comment: Hey, I've tried contacting you via, swapbot etc but you haven't answered my concerns that this swap is 5 weeks late. I really hate to give out ones, but I'll be happy to change the rating if anything comes, or at least respond to my messages about it. edited: 24-9-2010 I still haven't recieved anything. As as I can remember I asked you to at least send me a picture of the dotee you made. I had so much fun with this swap, yet I was disapointed that I never got anything in return. Edited: 9th Nov 2010 No I just completely forgot about the swap, after our initial messaging. And I remembered last month.
Response: Im sorry I didnt know you were trying to contact me! I've received no emails about anyone rating, commenting, or messaging me. I haven't had the time to be on swapbot so I only checked my email and thought everything was okay! I pm'd you!

camkin rated for 080808 Postcard Swap on Oct 2, 2008
Comment: Took nearly 2 months to send a date specific postcard and never contacted me to say that she was sending late. In all fairness, I can't give you a 5.
Response: Don't worry, I understand. Thanks

Comment: Thanks so much for the card, better late than never. loved it. so weird how it's burned down twice lol what's that all about :-)
Response: I know huh? I think if the dates were closer together then i'd be suspicious but I guess its just one of those odd things in life that happen.

Thanks for your interest in The group Gastronome, unfortunately, I see you are currently partially suspended. Please reapply when you get that straightened out.

ladydy5 on Jan 30, 2013:

Glad to see you are getting on with it and getting fives with hearts. You are in one of my swaps and I always check. Since your ones were in Sept of 2010 I see no reason why you shouldn't be given another chance. But, please don't send two months after due date anyhmore and always check your messages or send them. Thanks P.S. I am writing this on here so others can also see that you deserve another chance.

Hi, Just touching base to see if my DIY kit went out yet?

You tagged me on March 1st, I think it it a little rediculous to make me wait so long (5 months!!!), and with so little communcation from you.


PS: If I don't her from you soon, I am just going to get a friend to angel for me.)
