About Me

PHOTOs- I take photos of all my swaps & envie's before I send them out - so I will email a copy of the photos if something goes awry or gaga with the US post to verify that I'm not a flaker or flaking. Please let me know if there's a problem and I'll gladly send it again. {Lessons learned from 2020 & COVID19}

I will contact you if my swap doesn't get there within a reasonable time because I like to know if the time & effort I spent making a treasure made it to you. Unless overseas, then I generally wait 30days or more. But please, do me the CURTSEY of acknowledging my efforts timely.

Aloha! I give ❤️❤️ BECAUSE in a world full of people judging, criticizing, thumbs up/down, like/disliking everything, if someone took the time out of their day to buy a stamp, send a card/note/letter, walk to the mailbox, etc... just to brighten my day, then I am grateful because nobody is forced to do anything they don't want to do.

So thanks in advance for giving of YOUR TIME, spending YOUR money to mail me your special creations. You didn't have to share so that speaks volumes of your character - in my humble opinion...if your dislike list is long, this too says much of your character. I'm here to learn and experience other people, not just "stuff" & "things".

I put a lot of thought & 💕 into sending out your happy mail because I want to bring a smile to your door.

Comment: First of all, welcome to Amberleigh!! Thank you so much for this swap!!! The two ladies you included are just so lovely!! The details you added are so pretty, and I love how you cut out her hands to go over her dress - that never occurred to me when I was making mine so I had to make sure to pick a lady that had her hands away from her dress, haha. And the little pearls and gems are so perfect on both of them. Also I love your stationery!! I need to find some similar to use in swaps. :) Thanks again!!!
Response: Ohhh, thank you for the warm welcome to Amberleigh!! I found the lovely stationery while thrift'n but there is an Esty store that sells beautiful Victorian digitals download for my own stationery. Thank you for the 💕 for my wee doll also xxMuggleMom

It's a miracle if I manage to listen to one full book on Audible a month! lol And again, so sorry for the very late rating.

Response: Aloha!! Thank you for the 💕 and I'm just glad you liked my wrap up! I hope you get to listen to more audiobook soon - you deserve it! xxMuggleMom
