About Me

LOOKING FOR

kawaii sticker sack Camio/San-X/Crux/Q-lia/Mind Wave

We don't have them here TT

A BIG SHIPPING FAVOR

Hello friends! If you're going to send something through the mail, kindly send it ordinary, and not registered. This will make things easier for me. Postage rates have increased here, and parcels are now being taxed if they have a customs form. It is very expensive to claim a parcel since the cost can also allow me to send one abroad. I have indeed have received big packages and parcels without registration, and they have made it safely.

Thank you for understanding dear swapper :)

Before you rate a 1, it will be nice if you'll let me know first that you didn't received from me.. so that I can resend. Thank you!

Hello!

My name is Joelle Abigail... Joelle at school, and Abby at home.

Swapbot is one of the sites that I often visit several times a week. It's really addicting.

It's my delight when you treat me as your daughter, a granddaughter, a sister, or even a friend. It just makes me feel warm inside.

I call older females with the title "Tita", which literally means Aunt.Reason

Reading is one of my favorite hobby. I got interested at a young age, primarily because of my father who always reads the newspapers.

Favorite authors are Dr. Jose Rizal, Nicholas Sparks, Sidney Sheldon, Mitch Albom, and more!

I am also a member of Bookcrossing and Bookmooching... having the same username I have here in Swap-bot.

MAIL

Mail from the Philippines oftenly takes 2 to 8 weeks to arrive. A week is fast enough, and if that happens, I'm just amazed.

Mail to the Philippines takes around 2 weeks to 6 weeks, depending if it's registered, and on the season. During Christmas time, it takes about 2 months for them to arrive. Nevertheless, don't worry about them being so long, I get books and some big envelopes safe even without registration, but not that I'm saying it's a guarantee.

I also send via Surface Air Mail sometimes, except for postcards. It's an experiment of mine to see how long does Surface Air reaches to your country.

I mail my mail in two to three batches per month. Usually in the first week and in the last week. It's somehow difficult for me to visit the post office.

I might feature your mail sent to me in my blog. Click here

Reminders for me

Friendship Books

Currently passing up excess friendship books/sticker bags/label bags. Hoping to trade for a small profile surprise or RAK them. JUST LET ME KNOW You can still pass your excess booklet friendship books/sticker bags/ stamp bags or goodie bags my way.

1) I love signing established N&N/HQ Fbs :))

2) Followed by N&N/HQ Fbs/Established Normal FBs

3) Swapping established bags are enjoyable too :)

4) I have stopped swapping label bags, so please don't send them anymore.

5) I also like swapping slams.

6) Searching for regular Asian swappers who is interested in swapping FBs and bags.

Comment: Hi Ellie! I loved reading your profile, I feel like we have a lot in common! My father and husband were also in the military and I was also a military spouse and a Christian as well. (Looks like I need to add more to my profile! Haha) :) I would love to exchange letters if you would ever want to! Have a great night!
Response: Hi Christina :) Good day! Thank you so much for reading my profile. This is definitely a delayed response. I am interested in exchanging letters! However, do know that mail here takes a long time, and I don't want to frustrate you. If that's okay with you, I'm game!

Comment: I love the tea pot PC! I don't think the post office liked it though. I received it today in a body bag. I didn't see anything wrong with it but one little bend in the spout. Thank you so much! It is darling! You are in my prayers. Have a blessed day! Hugs, Diane
Response: Dear Tita Dianne, Oh I'm soooo happy that my card reached your place! Thank you so much for being nice, and I really appreciate it whenever there are opportunities for you to pray for me. I really thank you for that!

Happy Birthday!

Hello!

2017 SAVE MONEY CHALLENGE time for the last update. Merry Christmas!

flickflauder on May 23, 2017:

Hi Abigail, Thank you for the card (Postcard roulette swap intl #3)! My exchange year in Japan was incredible (yes I most certainly received special attention from my classmates - actually even all my schoolmates. The school has about 1200 students, in front of which I had to hold a speech on my very first day, so they all knew me... And: No I didn't study all night long, as I wasn't a "normal" student and my grades didn't count... But I did go to school on days of for my club activities (kyudo - Archery and kado - Flower arrangement)). I don't know if I am consistent enough to be a postcard pal (I usually start forgetting to send stuff after a few exchanges if I don't have any "reminder" from swap-bot). But if you want we can most certainly try - just send me a message with your address if you are up for it! I hope you have a lovely day, Sophie

(Roulette swap #2 unassigned, received 20-4-17) Hello and thank you for picking me to send this awesome unassigned keep calm-postcard to! First let me say I love your small, neat handwriting :) And no I do not have penpals/postcard pals. Have a great summer!

Uplifting Scripture ♡

Hello, and thank you for joining my swap! This is one of my favorite scriptures, if I get scared before bed I just read this verse and I automatically feel better :)

Proverbs 3:24

When you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.

May God bless you and your family ♡ Happy Swapping!

kathiann on Apr 17, 2017:

UPLIFTING SCRIPTURE: I thought that this swap was especially appropriate considering the time of year I have many different scriptures I turn to at different times, but a scripture I’ve always loved is Isiah 9:6 (taken from the KJV)

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”

I think the reason I love this so much is that it reminds me of the different rolls that Christ has and will take. He is the prince of peace, he can act as out counselor, he is our God, our Savior.

Uplifting Scripture This meant a lot to me a few years ago when I was unemployed

fairladybuff on Apr 16, 2017:

We read this in church today for Resurrection Day! May it be a reminder for that no matter what you may be going through in your life, the Lord is by your side!!!

The Lord is my strength and my defense; he has become my salvation. Shouts of joy and victory resound in the tents of the righteous: “The Lord’s right hand has done mighty things! The Lord’s right hand is lifted high; the Lord’s right hand has done mighty things!” I will not die but live, and will proclaim what the Lord has done. Psalm 118:14-17

bluecrayons on Apr 16, 2017:

Hi, here is one of my favorite uplifting verses. uplifting scripture swap

Proverbs 3:5-6 5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
