September 2017 I'm back for the winter and only taking a few tea swaps to begin with. Autumn/Winter always make me want to swap and settle into my home for the cold months :)
February 2017 Im taking a break once I finish up my last few swaps. I'm way too busy with school this semester to keep up with this right now and Im traveling to Iceland next month!
January 2017 The first day of the new year! I have big plans for this year :) I am still very sick and see my doctor on the 4th. I'm crossing my fingers that I can get my health under control so I can pick my traveling back up this year! I have a trip already planned to Iceland for my birthday in March and I'm hoping to either go to Seoul to see one of my best friends next summer, or ramble around Europe for a month. We'll see! For now, I'm sticking to limited swaps since I am 1)saving money and 2) its very hard for me to get to the post office in a timely manner when I'm sick and in bed most days. Heres to the new year, may it be amazing for all of us!
October 2016 I am back to Swap-Bot after a year hiatus! Autumn always makes me want to swap as I settle in for the cold months and I promised my family I wouldn't travel this winter until I got my health situated so that means more time for swapping. I will be in New Orleans for New Years Eve but I won't be going abroad until next year :)
I REALLY REALLY love anything from Germany as I am in my second year of German and love German products (especially junkfood!) Feel free to write to me in German too (so I can practice!) Right now I am obsessed with the Teekann German winter teas (Winterzeit and the Marzipan one) and would LOVE to receive those before the season is over
I also would LOVE YOU FOREVER if you sent me 7 day croissants. I had them in Romania this summer and they are the most brilliant thing ever
A little about me
Ratings/Hearts/and other info
I've noticed my stars haven't been keeping up with the swaps I host and I'm not sure why. I would appreciate immensely if there was a reason and you would message me to tell me about it. I put my whole heart into hosting unique, swapper friendly swaps and love receiving stars.
The same goes for hearts. If I didn't receive one I feel I've let you down and would like the chance to make it up to you
When I mark it as "sent" it means it is sitting in my mailbox. Sometimes this happens after the mail goes out or on the weekend, but sent means it is officially out of my hands and on its way to you!
If you haven't received something from me please contact me before rating so we can resolve the issue and resend your swap. I try to be accommodating and understanding and I always ask the same of my partners.
if something arrives postage due PLEASE contact me so I can refund your money. I sometimes just throw stamps on a letter without weighing it and always worry about something arriving postage due. It hasn't happened yet, although I have received quite a few on this site from others whom (mostly) haven't refunded any money and I don't wish to be in that group, so contact me immediately with a photo of the letter so I can refund your money
I archive swaps I haven't received yet, but I don't keep track of who hasn't rated/received. Please contact me if you don't receive someone from me BEFORE rating. I always send my swaps, so it is lost if you haven't received it and I want to fix the situation immediately.
*I will rate each swap the day I receive it, if I haven't rated you I haven't received it *
Often I will join swaps for presents for my little best friend :) so this section is devoted to her.
No shoes, clothes with Velcro across the chest that she can reach and open, rawhide, food made in China, tiny toys, fluff filled toys
These are people who have gone the extra mile and angeled for something I was flaked on! â¤ï¸
@JennaZ who hosted the "Christmas for the Dogs" swap and angeled when my partner flaked on me twice in a row. My pup loved all the toys she sent (she sent quite a package of goodies for her!)
@Minxy1964 angeled me the Random Acts Of Happiness #3 swap :) thank you so much, dear
@Artistic was the swap host for the Writers Year and sent me a huge Angel package to make up for my partner flaking! She went above and beyond the swap requirements and sent a really lovely package! Thank you so much!
@queenelisheba for angeling the winter solstice swap
@Tiffaknee for angeling the "cup of tea for you and me" swap. A+ friend and swapper â¤ï¸â¤ï¸
@CariahCreates sent Poppy a sweet Valentine's gift from her pup Toby, since Poppy was flaked out of a Christmas present for the "dogs of Christmas" swap. It warms my heart how kind some people are! I was angeled twice for this swap (from @JennaZ first.)
@SabbySteg angeled one of the Lush Boxing Day swaps I was flaked on. Such a very sweet package and sentiment, thank you dear!
@henjomaani for angeling AND resending the Tea for Tealovers swap and sending me a big envelope of tea
@sal410cat for angeling the BoS swap AND an Autumn swap I was flaked on last year. Thank you so much :)
@schaefchen87 for angeling the "not my country" food swap! So many delicious treats :) thank you!
The following swaps I have been flaked on and haven't been angeled for:
I will never rate someone poorly if they send me something from my dislike list..but I definitely give hearts and raves for giving me teas from my "likes"
I dislike: rooibos (African honeybush), Chamomile, basic Chai and English breakfast tea
Love: earl grey, fruity teas especially ones with actual dried fruit in them , loose leaf tea (I enjoy receiving these as long as you mark what they are on the baggie), Matcha, sleepy teas, Clipper brand and anything exotic like strawberry chocolate
Brands I absolutely adore: 1. There was this Praline tea from Russia with the brand name of Curtis. 2. I LOVE Strawberry tea/ Erdbeeren Tee! 3. I love dessert teas that have fancy flavors like cake/cookie/pastries 4. I also really love good fruity evening teas without caffiene. I'm not as big on herbal night teas and want something before bed that has a good flavour but wont keep me up. Twinings makes some that are delicious and caffiene free. 5. Please PLEASE send Moomin tea! I love it :) and Nordqvist! 6. Teekann Winter teas from Germany such as Winterzeit!
