Comment: FURTHER UPDATE -- 7 Jan 2012, this swapper, Samantha Buchanan, is continuing on-line with other activities, streaming photos, adding to etsy wishlist etc, just not bothering to send swaps -- obviously not MIA, just not following through -- nothing ever received, and no response from Samantha Buchanan to messages sent.

So bad -- months now and you didn't send your end of the swap, nor ever get in touch again, very disappointed in you.

meian on Oct 14, 2010:

Hi, Sam! The envie's on its way now. I hope it will make up for the lost one. Have a great day! :)

meian on Oct 11, 2010:

Hi! I see that you were online recently but my PMs to you are still marked unread. I hope you're ok. (Please let me do the right thing :) ) ~Meian

Shirley on Apr 24, 2010:

I'm sorry to leave a message here, but you seem to be getting into SwapBot but the msgs I sent you the past couple of months are still marked unread. Would you please send me a message? I just want to make sure you got my replacement from the swap I owed you :) Shirley

Bexs on Feb 1, 2010:

Thank you sooo much for angelling the Deer ATC for me. It was so sweet of you to do that for me. I LOVE the ATC you created. It has a wonderful touch of classy & girly ( the "regal"crowns you mention ) and down right boyish ( the deer ). It really is a beautiful card. I appreciate it more than I can express.

disneyfreaksam on Jan 24, 2010:

The message below was left in response to a question I raised on her profile. She has deleted the question and the message before mine asking if she is indeed the same person as the 3 other accounts that have exactly the same likes, dislikes, spelling mistakes, family names, country. The other accounts are all flakers.


Johanabanana on Jan 24, 2010:

No we don´t need any id..

mypoohbear60 on Jan 15, 2010:

Thank you for the sweet ATC's that you angeled for me. I love the penguin one. Pooh is great! As bad as I dislike having to ask for an angel, you certainly made it worth it for me. Thank you Again.

clevergirl on Jan 14, 2010:

Thank you, thank you, thank you for the SURPRISE RAK - I love everything you sent. Thanks for angeling me for the superhero swap (I was bummed I didn't get one from my partner).

Tina :)

Cakers on Jan 10, 2010:

My mom opened the Christmas surprise RAK you sent to her (through me), she was so thrilled to think someone she didn't even know (and from so far away) was thoughtful enough to send her a gift. She loves the playing cards and she said that she and her husband will break them in playing cribbage tonight. :-)

Thank you again, it was a fabulous surprise. You rock!
