About Me

3.5.2020 - My mom was had an accident over a month ago & will be unable to work for several months. I resent all the swaps that I was contacted about before her accident. I am in the process of resending (some for the 3rd time) any swaps that are still missing. We finally have a regular mail carrier. So that issue should be solved. Please bare with me as I work on figuring out what needs to be sent out again. With needing to help with my mom & her business I have been unable to get on her after I had resent everything before.

If you do not receive a swap from me, Please let me know! Our population here more than doubles in the winter & I have had a couple swaps go rogue lately. I would rather replace the swap than have you think that I flaked on you!

I am married with a little girl (6) & boy (3). I stepped away from swapping for a few years because I moved several times, got married & had kids. Now that they are a little older I would like to get back into it.

I am a professional seamstress. I also have a sustainable clothing business.

I love cooking, baking, travel, history & genealogy.

Comment: Thank you! I liked the granola cups a lot :) I had to pay customs for this one for some reason. I think it is because the address ticket looks exactly like the ones we use for online shop mails so they didn't bother actually reading it before sending me an invoice. I am gonna have to write an angry complain for them about it.
Response: I am so sorry you had to pay customs! That is ridiculous! :( I am glad that you enjoyed the granola cups. We like those also!
Comment: Thanks for your questionnaire, i will write back
Comment: Thank you for the Winnie the Pooh stationary! He is my favorite!
Comment: I really like your name, I think it is very unique. I also enjoyed the little letter you wrote, I would love to respond. :-)
Comment: Thank you for the lovely letter & adorable letter set. Woohoo, fancy meeting a fellow hair art fan! <3 Your questionnaire felt very genuine; I enjoyed receiving that, too. :) It felt like I could hear your voice in this mail.
Comment: Thank you so much for your wonderful letter and extras! Happy New Year! Hugs, Diane
Comment: Thank you for the letter, yummy looking tea, and stationary! I'll be replying soon!

Sadly you have flaked on two on my recent swaps National Handwriting Day – January 23 Note Card and National Send a Card to a Friend Day - February 7. You have been contacted and have not responded and/or opened messages. You have not been on SwapBot since Feb 15. I will angel both swaps.

Hi MeLisa, Can you please rate me for the National Handwriting Day swap sent Jan 14, 2020, please? Appreciate it.

I don't think I have a favorite era, but I do find it highly interesting how some things change so drastically over time while other things don't seem to change at all. For instance, love letters through the ages show matters of the heart haven't changed a bit. --- What character from the Office would you say you're most like?

cmalaina on Dec 9, 2019:

@user2391 yes for outlander!
