Maybe she was in an accident and has been in the hospital?

in my eyes she had the best reason ever to be late in that swap. personally i'm amazed that she was able to do that swap at all. i don't think you should be so hard on her because she and her family was going through some serious shit. but if you feel disappointed, i'm sorry.

i wasn't trying to be mean, i just don't like the way things went down. she told me it would be a little late a few days before the swap send out date, but we had a long time before that to craft. i said thats fine, but then didn't get the package for nearly a month. it just didn't add up to me, especially when she didn't pm me back, but whatever its cool

Stargirl...Maybe there's more to the story, like maybe the person had been sick for awhile and they knew that death was likely or maybe, she thought she was dealing with everything okay and then it just hit her.  I was like that when my grandfather died...I was "okay" for weeks, left home to get back to university and broke down totally when I got there.  I understand that you're frustrated but, like someone said, it's a risk you take when swapping, even if the other person isn't trying to be mean, sometimes the swaps don't work out.

I think the point is that she took on some responsibility with organizing/participated in swaps.  I know everyone has family and real life responsibilities but its been quite a long time since she has been in contact with anyone.  She should come online and tell at least the people she made commitments to what's going on, I think everyone would understand if she let us know she had to drop out.  I hope she is okay.

yes. and it was serious shit.

i wasn't trying to be mean, i just don't like the way things went down. she told me it would be a little late a few days before the swap send out date, but we had a long time before that to craft. i said thats fine, but then didn't get the package for nearly a month. it just didn't add up to me, especially when she didn't pm me back, but whatever its cool

okay, i was probably a bit too sensitive about it. i understand. but i dont think the swap had much to do with her disappearing, though. but i don't know more than anyone else here.

Does anyone have her #? or real name to  look it up? I was her partner in the keychain swap.  I really hope she is ok.    Undecided

i have her name and address but no phone number, and since i'm at the other end of the globe i'm not really the person to do that. is being sorta stalkerish and finding out her # and call her to see if she's okay the thing we want to do or is there another way? i was thinking about sending her a letter, but since she hasn't replyed to my last one i don't know how big the chance is that she'll reply. any suggestions/thoughts, or should we just keep gossiping and guessing what might have happened? or do we just accept that she seems to be gone?

well this seems to happening alot lately.There were two other swappers, very reliable, i don't want to name them, there's been enough talk about it already. But they disappeared as well and all we knew was that there were some family illness problems going on there too.
We talked and talked abt it here on craftster but the long and short of it is that they have not made contact with anyone regarding this, for whatever the reason maybe. I just feel we shd give them the benefit of the doubt based of whatever info we have (detah in her family etc). and leave it at that.
To me it sort of feels wrong to go on an on talking abt it and contemplating what went wrong.

So just pray that she and her family are ok. I am praying for her too.

Starpiste is doing an amazing job getting that swap together and taking care of those who have been flaked on. so kudos to her!
