Profile update=3/20/2013-For profile based swaps or if you just want to make me really happy I have a wishlist on items I'm looking for. Receiving something from that list will definitely get you a heart. I normally always check my partners profile to help me decide on what to send them even if it isn't profiled based swap.

International cost too much plus it takes longer to receive items so I only do flat envelope swaps. I do U.S.A. swaps of any kind. Thanks for understanding
When I receive my gift I promise I will rate it. I'm not going to give you a 3 or 1 because I don't like it.. I WILL rate it using the swap-bot rating rules. I appreciate every gift I get and I'm not greedy, selfish or hard to please so, as long as you mail by the deadline and the gift go with the swap theme then you will get a 5. You don't have to send me an extra gift to get a heart. I'll give you a heart if it is sent on time and the gift matches the theme we swapped for and I know you put time and thought into it. If for some reason you can't send by deadline then please message me and let me know. I will do the same. Sometime things happen in life. I realize I'm new and just want to be rated fair. I don't want a 3 or 1 because you don't like the gift. I put a lot of thought into my swaps and stick with the theme of the swap. Please, don't flake on me because I will rate you with a 1 and reply with a comment and make sure everyone knows. You will also go on my flaker list. However, like I said before, I will give you time to fix it. Communication and being honest will get you far. I'm not a flaker. I swap @ www.swap.com, & www.cafemom.com (in some groups) I have friends here @ swap-bot that are from Cafemom that I swap with. Cafemom is where I heard about this site. I already mentioned that earlier.
There are only three different rating criteria:
I got my stuff and it met posted swap requirements (5 points)
I got my stuff, but it didn't meet the posted swap requirements (3 points)
I never got anything (1 point).
Keep in mind that you are NOT rating your partners on whether or not you liked what you received, only on if it met the requirements of the swap. The fun thing about swaps is that you never know what you are going to get, and that means that sometimes you may not be thrilled with what you receive. Also, remember that everyone (including the person you are rating) can see who you are and what ratings and comments you gave. It is important to rate participants honestly, but it is also good to be kind even if you have to give someone the lowest rating.
