Please Note: If I did not send you a swap back in 2012, and have not contacted you, please message me so I can make it right. Thank you!
January 30th, 2017 Just a quick update! I am updating all info below and swaps as I hear from people. I've not heard back from many...but hopefully can get most of the 7 1s that are left resolved.
January 7th, 2017 I am continuing to receive awesome advice on how to make up the swaps I didn't send, and repair my ratings. I'm so grateful for all the awesome, kind & understanding people here on swapbot now! I've started a section below with more details on swaps I'm making up. Please read that section for more info.
January 5th, 2017 Today I have heard back from several people that I messaged, including ones that were private or group swaps that I won't get credit for. I'll keep a list here, or update the ratings accordingly. I have erased the old updates I had written on my profile in an effort to keep this a bit cleaner and to the point as I work to restore my ratings. Thank you so very much to everyone who has been so kind, understanding and helpful thus far! Heard back from 2 of my #1 ratings. Also heard back from 4 others that I had sent, but not been rated for either. Feels good to be getting things started!
January 4th, 2017 A kind swapper posted a comment on my profile giving me advice on how to make things right. So, just now, I went through and messaged all of my 1s to see how I can make things up to them. You can see on those individual ratings the comments I left about messaging them. Next, I'm going through the comments on my profile to see if there is anything there to add to it. And finally I'll be checking out the angeling thread to help people out there. Happy New Year everyone! EDIT: Oh AND...I realized I had some messages I had never read so checking those too!
See the details of the swaps I've already been rated for in the response section of those ratings. Below are swaps I wasn't rated for, but didn't get sent either.

I messaged nellarules & smallwood on Jan. 4th. Both replied & I will be making up this swap to them.
There are several swaps I was never rated for back in 2012. However, I don't remember which ones those are now...so I'm sending messages to the people who never rated me to see if there were any I never sent.

THE LONG STORY SHORT
Pt. 1 - I found swapbot. I got addicted fast. I got in over my head and into way too many swaps.
Pt. 2 - Life began to go downhill. My husband lost his job and my health was beginning to decline.
Pt. 3 - I agreed to a swap with someone in which my part was to knit a long table runner, as well as a few smaller things. I am not a fast knitter and at this point life had started to hit. I was able to get the smaller things made, but the runner was taking me ages. Especially since I was in bed sick most of the time at this point.
Pt. 4 - Life got worse. My son was diagnosed with autism (which I NOW see as a blessing...but it was a huge hit then). We ended up losing our house and then our vehicles.
Pt. 5 - I left swapbot amidst all the drama that I had started with my over-eagerness to swap. Which was followed up with life keeping me from completing my swaps. Over the next 5 years it constantly plagued me. I tried to come back a few times, only for life to continue to be crappy and prevent it. I decided to wait until I felt comfortable coming back and making things right. Now here I am :)
