Constructive criticism is always welcome.
Life Happens. Communication is Key. I really don't like to give 1s or 3s, but if I don't hear anything from you, I will.
If you haven't received anything from me, please pm me before leaving a low rating, I will happily re-send.
I love sending extras because surprises are awesome :D That said, I do not expect them, and I give hearts when I think you've put thought into the swap.
