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. RESPECT for all.

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: Thank you for the postcard and the recommendation! I had a Jodi picoult book in my hands once or twice, they always sounded interesting, but I was never sure if I’d like her style of writing. But maybe I’ll give it a try (:
Response: Thank you for the 💞 and I too wondered about Jodi Picoult books for years before I finally went with a recommendation. I hope you do find her books to your liking - some are better than others and sometimes its just the right moment when a book comes crashing into your orbit ☄️- at least that's how I think sometimes, lol! xxMuggleMom

Comment: Hi Toni, Thank you for the goodies! Is the shaker item a bookmark? The top made it sort of look like packaging but I didn’t want to open it and ruin it if it’s supposed to be that way. Thanks for swapping!

I love making shakers, but shaker album covers are so new to me, so I wanted to test different paper materials out. I had fun making mine and love receiving yours! Love the album and the little bits in each pocket :P Have a great summer!
