Nov 15 - making good progress on private swaps! Very behind on messages, but I haven't forgotten anyone. Thank you for your continued patience y'all!
If I haven't rated you, I have not received your swap (EXCEPTION: I left two swaps at my parents' house [a tea swap and an angel from H.S.]; I will get them the next time I'm there and leave you a rating/comment!)

In addition to pen pals, I'd love to get into private swapping. I'm mostly interested in brainstorming together to think of creative, personalized swaps that are a bit more labor-intensive than most on here. Let me know if you have any cool ideas (or want to humor some of mine!).
Right now, I am especially interested in:
New Age / spirituality / occult / paranormal / demonology / secret societies
shrink plastic charms
All three of these ratings are from October 2013.
3 rating -- Fountain Pen Pal - Oct 2013
This swap was initially flaked on due to personal reasons, but completed to specifications in June 2015. The 3 is not for doing the swap incorrectly, but for sending 2 years late.
1 rating -- 3rd Quarter Reading Log Swap 2013
This swap was flaked on due to personal reasons and is still owed to user @Funsizedsteph who has not been active since April 2015. I am still attempting to contact her and periodically check her profile to see if she's returned.
1 rating -- ✉ Snail Mail Envie ✉ #6
This swap was flaked on due to personal reasons and the user @B3ntButN0tbrok3n has been inactive since May 2015. I've contacted her off-site and sent out a replacement August 7.
Please let me know if my swap hasn't made it to you within a reasonable timeframe (2 weeks for domestic US, 4 - 6 weeks for international) and I will resend, though it may take a bit if it's a labor-intensive swap. I generally save my post office receipts/customs declarations for anything with expensive postage or of high value.
Please note that I can take a few days to rate, but always do. If you haven't received a rating within a few days of when your swap should have arrived, it means I didn't receive it. Contact me and we'll figure something out!
Also, if you are going to be late-- please just contact me. I understand that life happens, but courtesy and consideration go a long way.
My biggest swap-related fear is one of the participants in something I'm hosting leaving empty-handed. For that reason, I will always angel-- just keep in mind that it might take a while depending on the swap.
Don't hesitate to shoot me a PM about anything, basically. I generally reply same day.
Thanks for reading!
