i too have sent anon packages...to people that were flaked on! taloola
and...i just got done with my first personal swap and my partner totally flaked on meeee!
i sent her bloomers!!!!
, I'm sorry to hear that! I've done one personal swap and my partner flaked on me too (she's not even checking in with Craftster anymore...so I take it I'm out of luck). I have her address, but I'm not gonna contact her because I think personal swaps function on the premise that everyone abides by the honor system...since there aren't any moderators or organizers to keep things in check. If you drop me a pm with your mailing address, I'll send something your way
I didn't mean it that way at all. I'm just thinking it would be good if personal swap sucesses were acknowledged, and a person could check prior to agreeing to send. Then, maybe we could avoid what happenened to you. Hang in there, I'll swap with you, what kind of crafts do you do? :)d
If you want people to know you are open to personal swaps add it to your signature
Just a thought. If there's sufficient interest, we could set up a 'permanent' Personal Swap gallery! So, for example, when Jane chooses to do a personal swap with Mary, both parties will get to post their crafty creations for the rest of us to admire
If someone would take on the task (and this could get huge!) of monitoring/moderating the swap gallery, we could perhaps set up a swap theme called "Personal Swap" and leave the appropriate feedback, noting the number of successful personal swaps the person has taken part in
Whew, that was a long thought for a rather tired brain. Hope it made some sense!
