About Me

Hi. I'm not new to Swap-Bot any more, but have been in-active for awhile. NOT new to swapping. I belong to one postcard group at Yahoo! and I used to belong to more groups on here, too. I was formerly, Mary Booth.

I'm a newlywed, sort of. Got married on July 9, 2010. I'm 55 and my husband is 62. We are able to get out more than we used to, so I kind of put swap-bot on the side. I hope to get back into it again.

I am a firm believer in rating swaps and in sending out the promised swap. I believe that if you are unable to send out on time, send your partner a pm to let them know!

If you do not intend to send out your swaps, do not sign up. Simple as that. Thank you.


  • @Asuka24 "Favorite Candy Swap" (no response to pm's either.

  • @atotalnobody "Baby Dotee Doll Swap EDITED (responded once to an email, then nothing)

  • @Badwolf "Postcards_Lots of 'Em (2)"

  • @madsquirrel "Postcards_Lots of 'Em (2)" (One postcard I was angeled, not the other)


[http://www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/33760] This swap was never angeled, either. I received from one partner, not the other. It ended May 6, 2009. Coordinator sent out an email, but was never followed up on.


Supposedly sent, but never received swaps

  • Private Swap Between @mcltweety & @maryb221
  • claimed she sent it twice, but I never got either envelope of 2 smashed pennies, said she would send it again, I told her don't bother.

Received angeled swaps that I was flaked on

  • @5trawberry sent a wonderful angeled swap for the "Favorite Candy Swap" that I was flaked on.

  • @dbowie sent a very cute baby Dotee doll for my own coordinated swap of Baby Dotee Doll Swap - EDITED that I got flaked on.

Comment: Thank you for the squares. Just for your info you forgot the swap name on your note. Luckily this was the only crochet swap I was in so I had no trouble finding the correct one.
