UPDATE: 1/29/21. I have had some challenges with people receiving mail from me. My sister and daughter in VA just received my Christmas cards. It took 5 weeks from CT. (mailed 12/14). If you have received a swap from me, please rate, and if not, please let me know so I can resend!!!! I currently have 5 outstanding swaps awaiting rating. Thanks!
I love paper. Books, making books, altering books, cards, stamping, all kinds of mail art, journaling, collage, stamps, etc. I also make beaded jewelry.
I enjoy swapping with people from around the world. I understand that the mail systems can have flaws and things may not arrive to their destination. I pledge to reach out more than once before rating a 1 or a 3. I would really appreciate the same courtesy. I understand the disappointment of spending time on a swap and knowing someone seemingly did nothing.
I often include extras that are profile based, not for the hearts (I do appreciate them though!) but because I have so much stuff to share and would like to bring a smile to people's faces. That said, please rate your swap. (I always will) It helps me continue to improve what I send out, and lets me know you received my envelope.
