  • One Interesting Fact About Me
  1. No, this is not the last reveal. There are one or two left.
  2. Sorry to get back to you so late. I just returned from a business trip with no internet. You ladies are the last half of the people who will be receiving the journal. Please let me know ASAP whether this order still works for you. @@heath67013 @@jannie135 @@lissa1307 @@PeridotCricket @@trekkersangel @ @@DeSha, I'm going to have you hold onto the journal, if you don't mind, until Ihear back from the rest of the ladies or at least heath67013 to confirm that she is ready and has time for the journal right now. I just got back from the work trip from hell!!! Business trips are supposed to be fun!!!! Or at least have internet service!!!!
  3. Please don't misunderstand my post as saying people need to be required to post, that isn't what I meant at all. What I meant is that if you are knowingly too busy to keep up with your "person" for the entire length of the event then perhaps participating in something like this isn't the best way to swap or get to know people. There were people who posted very little but brought a lot of useful information into the discussions and there were some who posted all the time and brought the same amount of information. Everyone made the discussion thread and then the reveal thread fun. Although, we did, unintentionally, lose people to the MUT NEST once it opened.
  4. @ is right, we were both perplexed at how "we had MULTIPLE requests to "catch them up" on anything their BUDDY did/said over the past few weeks or whenever". Some of those weren't even requests, they were DEMANDS (not very nice) and people would outright say they haven't been active at all in that thread and probably wouldn't be, since they were very busy. I get people are busy, believe me. There were weeks I worked until 11 or 12 at night and then moved onto my Summerswap responsibilities. But those responsibilities do NOT include updating people on their Swap Buddies (unless there is an issue). If you know that you are going to be too busy to even read the threads then you shouldn't sign up. Aside from that, we had a GREAT group of Roadies who were super helpful that could be contacted. At one point, Jess and I were SOO frustrated and felt so "battered" that we both couldn't wait for Summerswap to be over!!
  5. My Summerswap Buddy is @@dancersmum who is the BEST EVER! Reveal coming shortly - after I figure out how to post pictures (a lot) from my phone. My favorite little person, Z (my son), spilled SWEETENED iced tea all over my laptop which has my whole entire life on it!!! I"m waiting for it to dry out completely before I attempt to turn it on!
  6. The time frame starts from when you receive the journal. It has nothing to do with the postmark date. Babs
  7. Times like this I wish there was a "Dislike" button!!
  8. I'm so sorry for your loss @rachelshine. Take all the time that you need. We will be here waiting for you with hugs and understanding ands comfort. You and your family are in my thoughts. Please know that we are here for you, whatever you need.
  9. She did say that she was going away in July. Also, since she is in CA, I don't know if tracking stops at the border. I sent her a PM. I will let you know as soon as I hear back from her unless she posts first.
  10. I'll PM your Buddy to see what is going on.
  11. I could not have said it better myself. I know that you are a consistent poster and I am SO SORRY you feel like crying. It's not right. This is supposed to be FUN!!! Most of this thread is not FUN. I am sending my gift with the understanding that I may not here back from the person I sent it to. I doubt it because I know who she is and she is a consistent poster. I would HOPE that they would acknowledge the gift to at least sat, I received it. BUT if I had received a person who didn't post, I would still send out a gift that I was PROUD to say, "Yep, that was me, I sent it." Would I be annoyed or a little upset? But I would keep it to myself. If I wasn't "running" Summerswap, chances are you would have seen a lot less of me with work and moving but the Summerswap is my responsibly so I post as much as I can. I like @@tulosai's idea that a survey is a requirement to join.
  12. I think the same exact think too! I always think she is ice skating!!
  13. @@jocedun i sent her a PM to find out what's going on and asked her to post in the reveal thread.
  14. You have a nail polish top coat that has butterflies in it?!?!? Where can I get said top coat?
