Comment: Nooit iets ontvangen en helaas ook geen antwoord meer op mijn berichtjes...
Comment: Sent several messages and received no reply. :(
Comment: I know that you have been going through some things, and when you come back to swapbot, I will remove the rating, to give you a fair chance, but for now I have to clean up my board. Let me know right away, when you return:)
Comment: This swap was due in June, and I understand that we did message many times in which you mentioned you sent and resent the swap yet I have still received nothing. I am willing to change my rating and hopefully will receive something, I put in a lot of effort in sending my swap.
Comment: thank you so much, it was a lovely package big hearts to you xxx
Comment: Thanks!
Comment: I received an envelope with nice stuff from Netherlands, but without signature or swap name, I think is from you! I loved the items, a decotape, pencil, pen, postcards... it's from you? Thanks!
Response: yes it is mine thanx you for the rating
Comment: Melanie, thank you for your great package for this swap!:D I'm fond of the Netherlands theme on the envie and I appreciate that you sent the Christmas goodies following my wishlist :) Thank you!<3

Comment: I really like how you used the doily on your envelope. I appreciate you send me a few doilies. Even your tiny note cards was so cute. I loved the bag of odds and ends, I think I will incorporate those into some Round Robin APC atc cards. You were a great partner.

Hello. I am your partner in ISS: Envies of Randomness. I just wanted to let you know how sorry I am for you. I can't imagine what you are going through. As far as the swap you owe me goes, do not worry about it. If there is some time you want to send it out, that would be nice. But for now, you just take care of all you need to do and take care of yourself. You will be in my thoughts & prayers.

I am very sorry to hear about your father! My thoughts are with you

grandmaroro on Aug 20, 2013:

I am so sad for you . Losing your dad is a very painful thing to deal with, but at least you have your sister. Together you can and will get through this.

I hope more Swap-botters will read your profile and understand why you are late on some swaps. I've been in your situation and lucky is the person who has not had to deal with tragedy. If you need help, I can angel some of your swaps. Please contact me. Warm hugs to you during this time.

user2637 on Aug 18, 2013:

user2637 on Aug 18, 2013:

Swapper is currently late on 5 swaps.
