But I assure you, I send my swaps, I will rate swaps I receive.

I am a good swapper so if you are waiting on me for a swap, PLEASE private message me and let me know. I always send my swaps. I am very proud of my 5 rating!! But if you don't receive and don't tell me than I can't resend!!

I have been swapping and pen palling for almost 35 years. I also love to do private swaps. I love to send and receive a good swap. I am active in Yahoo groups and love to make new friends.

DISLIKES/do not send items

To make it easier to send swaps and wishes my way I have changed my dislikes to just a few.

There are only a few items I wish not to receive. Here is the list..I don't like watermelon or lavender scents of anything.

Plz do not send any face masks, bath bombs or bubble bath. We do not have bathtub. Just roll in shower for my husbands wheelchair. Used postage stamps, PLEASE DO NOT SEND ME TEA BAGS OR COFFEE. I DO NOT DRINK EITHER ONE . Friendship Books, Label Baggies, Xslips sticker books I do not do, sorry plz do not send them my way. Please do not send me anything that may smell like smoke. Or lavender, I have asthma and it kicks it up really bad. It wont make it any better if you put in a dryer sheet, it doesn't work. I wish it did,sorry to say.
