DISLIKES: PLEASE DONT SEND ME anything that stinks or is dirty
PLEASE NOTE- If I sign up for a swap I will 100% commit to sending it and will not flake! Therefore, if I’m your partner and you don’t receive something from me then please send me a message so I can resend it to you. I know that when people work hard taking their time to send something to their partner, and they are flaked on it’s rather disappointing. Therefore, I’m even willing to angel a swap if any of the hosts need😀
Lastly, if you would like to see some of my swapbot swaps that I received or have sent out in swaps then you can check out my YouTube channel I posted under ky website. Also, I would LOVE if you would subscribe to my youtube channel and help support me on ky creative journey. I just started about a year ago and I enjoy having a place I can document and share my swaps I sent, received, as well as junk journal shares, and Etsy hauls etc!
m grateful and thankful to participate in such a fun platform, and I am so happy I found this site. I really enjoy swapping and it has become a weekly hobby! Thank you to everyone who has allowed me to participate in their swaps, and thanks to all the wonderful amazing people that have sent me swaps!!!!!
