1IF YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED A SWAP, PLEASE CONTACT ME AT ISHODANDRACHEL@GMAIL.COM BEFORE RATING. THANK YOU.

.

Update 4/21/17- HEY GUYS.JUST A QUICK NOTE,THAT I WILL BE TAKING A BRIEF LOA FROM SWAPPING UNTIL THE SUMMER.I AM STILL PENPALLING THOUGH. LOTS OF THINGS GOING ON,DAUGHTER JUST HAD SURGERY,AMONG OTHER THINGS. IF YOU NEED TO GET IN TOUCH,PLEASE CONTACT ME DIRECTLY.........

ALSO, MY DAUGHTER IS TRYING TO RAISE FUNDS FOR A TRIP SHE IS TAKING IN AUGUST.I AM INCLUDING A LINK TO HER FUNDRAISING YANKEE CANDLE PAGE,IF YOU FEEL SO INCLINED TO HELP BY MAKING A PURCHASE......IT WOULD BE A HUGE BLESSING!

https://www.yankeecandlefundraising.com/store.htm

MY RATINGS: I do have a recent three,but please note, that it was a rerate of a swap that i did sometime ago that was never received. She finally received it,and it was a great swap, she just didn't feel she could rate me a 5 due to the length of time......

At this point, and being a member on the bot for 7 years now, I am fairly selective about the swaps I choose to join. I am also selective about the amount and know my limitations. You learn to do that after a few years. Please be assured that if I sign up for a swap I have every intention of fufilling it. =)

My 3's: So, I have learned a few things during my time here. I am not a quilter(lol) and I also need to make sure that I send items with enough postage.Oh, and also never trust anyone but myself to mail my packages for me.There really isnt anything I can do to correct those swaps themselves except #1 dont ever quilt and #2 always use proper postage. The ornament swap was late because of the lessons learned mentioned above. I did make the swappers aware, and I offered to refund postage,but they didnt really want me to do that. If you were one of my partners for that swap, my offer still stands,whether you re-rate me or not. Its the principle of the thing.

MY 1'S: I am currently working on resending these.I hope to have at least 3/5 resolved within the next week or so.......

PRIVATE: I am looking to set up a few for the summer, so if interested, please contact me. Or I may be contacting you.

Hi, Im Rachel,Southern Gal,musician,travel afficionado,fellow crafter,homeschooling Mommy to one(hopefully more someday),married to the love of my life for 11 years,and more recently college student(Im soo nervous!) I live in a zoo, where we have 2 dogs Boomer and Squirt,and two cats, Smoky and Custard They were all rescued animals who were dumped on the street,etc.......Im not much of an animal lover, but I am starting to warm up to all of them(its the cleaning up part that I hate....lol) It all started when someone from from postcrossing.com referred me over here to swap postcards.Soon I started delving into stickers, and eventually worked my way into crafts. I have always been a crafty girl, just enever really had a reason to do it until I came here. I soo enjoy making and receiving things from all over the world. I have done it all, from ATCs, to inchies,papercrafts, but I would have to say that currently my favorite two crafts are art journaling and altering things. I love giving new purpose to things that would otherwise be thrown away

I am alot of things, a flaker isnt one of them, so if your swap hasnt come. Please,please,please let me know so i can resend.I will do so gladly...... PLEASE READ IF YOU ARE WAITING ON A RATING FROM ME: I usually do all of my ratings on Fridays, and my sending of packages as well.Friday has been declared swap-bot day in my household, and is when i usually rate and send, and oragnize my swaps.The only exception is if it is a quick turnaround swap......

Welcome to my profile =) If you have any problems or questions about the swap I have sent you,or havent received from me yet, please PM me.

I have several things that I am passionate about which include my faith(Christian),my music, crafting, and nature/traveling,just to name a few.

I Pledge to Rate

Favorite Music

Music is everything to me.It is my life. I graduated from University last year with my music degree, and hope to open my own studio someday.I live by the Hans Christian Anderson Quote "Where words fail,Music speaks". Its my favorite quote of all time. I love anything craft that is music related,song sheets, hymn sheets,altered CDs,etc.

I enjoy mostly christian music.I love praise and worship music,Hillsong Australia,etc. I like a little bit of country, none of the beer drinking, cheating stuff, mostly the classics george Strait,John Michael Montgomery, Alan jackson,u Brad paisley,etc. I am an aspiring musician, and write songs,etc, so music is very important to me.Oldies are always good.Have recently gotten into broadway and classical as well I DO NOT like heavy metal/alternative

enter title...

As for themes,if you are making a profile themed object, I love anything travel themed,outdoors themed,historical themed,broadway/theater and the like.I am a huge history and geography nerd, anything history related fascinates me.

I recently had the wonderful opportunity to sing at Carnegie hall. It was my first time in NYC, so I am pretty obsessed with anything from or related to that area now.

Nautical themes have become a recent favorite of mine too(anchors,beachy,etc)

My favorite color patterns and schemes are black and white, red,green(but not red and green together)neutral colors(any shade of brown), and earth tones(think outdoorsy/fall) I am not too big on floral scents, I mostly like food type scents

Favorite Crafts

I pretty much love to make anything, but it all started with scrapbooking. Just recently got into pocket letters, and love art journaling.I currently have about 5 journaling projects going on at any given moment.My Happy Planner is my current obsession , and I also recently got into pen palling. So far, I only have maybe three pals, but would love to have more =)

THANK YOU VERY MUCH :-) teas chocolates, cause they melt. any other candy

Swap Notes

Unless the swap is food related,please dont send any food. I have recently lost 50 pounds, so i am on a pretty strict diet =)

I especially love to trade with people from other countries. I love to give hearts........however, please note, I do not give them for sending an item early. Here recently i have received alot of things that were thrown together and not taken there time on. I would rather have you take your time on something and have it be a little late, then get it way early and look thrown together. I also give hearts for profile extras. It means alot to me when I receive a package where I know someone has taken the time to read it. If you havent received from me,please be patient, especially if it is international(imparticularly Canada, i have had a package take like 8 weeks before!!!)I always try to contact my partners if they havent rated after a few weeks,but if I havent pmed you, please contact me before rating.

Also, I tend to get a little antsy about whether packages make it or not, so please rate promptly,especially if it is an international package. Thank you soo much =0)

Also a note to those I am swapping with: I am a beginner in alot of things. I have been doing paper crafting for years, and am trying to expand a little.Please keep this in mind when receiving your items(esp if sewing is involved.....lol). Please be sure you check your postage, i have had quite a few postage due swaps lately........

Comment: I appreciate the fact that you offered a resend back in February and I said I wanted to wait longer because we had had a Customs' strike back in January. I contacted you via e-mail and you said you'd resend, but I haven't heard anything from you since May 10 and you didn't respond to the last e-mail I sent you 4 days ago. Since you're not logging in, it looks like you don't have any intentions of making up for the swaps you owe. I'll change this rating if I ever get anything, but I doubt it.
