Overseas mail has taken ANYTHING FROM 4-6 weeks to reach me. Some mail has been extremely fast moving lately but sadly not all.
I joined swapbot in January 2007 💓
Please when sending me a swap use my first and last name, not my swap-bot user name. I live in a very small rural town where the PO is part of the general store and mail is filed alphabetically. There is no home delivery so I collect it from the store. We don't have mail in or out over the weekends and anything I mail after 10.00 am on Friday will not be checked through until Monday.

I believe ratings are important so I try to rate as soon as I receive and while we all have good intentions I sometimes slip up. If you think it has taken too long I don't mind if you jog my memory with a gentle reminder pm.
If your item is SENT late I am happy to wait as long as there is contact between us before the send date and I allow lots of travel time. I will not wait to rate a 1 if you are already receiving 1's or you don't answer any messages. It's about communication!
POSTING MAIL TO AUSTRALIA Australian Customs Information
NOTE About POSTCARDS : I enjoy unique or unusual postcards and any that make me smile. My favorites are art/illustration postcards. Those printed by artists from your local area would be wonderful as would handmade postcards that you make but please NO cards made with just stickers or washi tape. I like bright and cheerful colours but that is not a requirement. ❤❤❤
( While I love them going through the post naked I won't rate down if the swap says send naked and you put it in an envelope )
Any size is fine too. The bigger , the better !
