Hello: Swap Bot friends, I live on the south end of Vancouver Island BC Canada. "My Etsy Store" above is my wish-list...

Updated Postcard info: The absolute worst mail delivery service seems to be between Canada and the United States !!!

I find the amount of non-raters is a continual thorn in my side and I am quite discouraged with Swap Bot. I have recently joined Postcrossing and I look forward to not having to track others down for a simple rating. Thank you to those who take the time and are considerate enough to rate. You are the best!!!

For POSTCARD SWAPS : please send naked(stamped&posted)... ...Please put the date on the PC... If you dont put the swap name on: I cannot rate you! I take a digital photo of all PCs I send out, front and back views.Please dont send me homemade PC's unless the swap is for a homemade PC. Thank you.

NON-RATERS: Please just give a rating already... "The rating system is meant to help keep people honest and fair with their swaps.

Comment: Thank you for the cute & interesting fairy PC. This one is definitely different. But do love it! Also, loved the fairy story by J.R.R. Tolkien. I love stuff by him! Stay safe!
Response: Hi Debbie thank you for the rating with heart I'm glad you liked the toadstool fairy postcard. Happy Spring swapping. How is the mail running in your neighborhood ? It definitely slowed down here in BC. Most likely all over...I have been self quarantined , day 13 . Because my sister came to live here with me until things get back to normal. so I haven't hugged my wonder twins since day 0. Haven't seen my baby grandson , who is super growing at breakneck speed, he pulled himself into a standing position today ! I really miss him, usually I see him 2 -3 times a week. Keep yourself and yours safe , my happy mail is even more important to me during these uncertain times.peace love light

Comment: Thank you for that adorable orange cat card. I have an orange tabby so I really loved it. Must have been so fun going to see that Cat video festival to see videos on a big screen. All the best! Cathy
Response: Hi Cathy thank you for the rating with heart. This was my first year going because they usually make it a 19+ event and I wouldnt go unless I could bring my daughter along... I didn't think I would enjoy it: she is a cat lover and teen so it was mostly for her. Plus to support Cats Cradle Animal Rescue ...but I loved it so much and I am going back next year lol Great fundraising idea. Happy Spring swapping Be safe. peace love light

THANK YOU so much for this RAK card!!! It's incredible. It's so ME. I can't stop looking at all the tiny things. These turtle (tortoise?) stamps are so beautiful, too. One of my favorite things to do near here is visit the turtles that swim around in a pond. This has been a difficult week and your card really brightened it, thank you :):):) Happy swappping and happy summer :):):)
