She was a very reliable swapper. She used to be Pink Kittie.

She was a very reliable swapper, and very chipper too. Sucks that she's been MIA. Does ANYONE know her outside of Craftster?

I don't think I'll keep her in my swap because I don't feel it's fair to the other people to be paired with a no-show. I don't mean it in a mean way, just that it's better for everyone that way. No guilt on her part, either.

Come back, Cherie!

She was organizing the Secret Birthday Swap but we noticed she disappeared the 20th, I think. I've done A BUNCH of detective work to try and put it back together, as flaking is RAMPANT. She was always so nice and on top of things. I'm sad but mostly worried for her. I hope everything is okay for her, wherever she is. I hope she comes back....  Cry

It makes me nervous when reliable swappers suddenly flake. You sort of get to know people and its creepy to not know why.

what really worries me is that her profile says she hasnt been active since august 20th. her other sites that she links to also show her falling off the face of the planet around that time. Its just so weird that a swapper as reliable as her would "get lost".

I emailed her with no response and added her to my aim and msn buddy list about a week ago and have been watching for her...she hasn't been online.  Hopefully she comes back and tells us what's going on!

I knew her as Pink Kittie...she was my swap partner at the time (of course, I no longer have her address so I can't check on her) but I was under the impression that DH wasn't so understanding of the time she spent crafting.  It may have been putting stress on the family unit (which isn't fair but I would put my family before my crafting too) so she may have had to take a break.

Let's all hope we hear from her and start seeing her back on the boards soon!

You would hope she would give everyone she had made commitments to a heads up if she was just willingly taking a break.

I was worried about her also! she was my swap partner for a swap with a send out deadline of august 30th. i haven't received anything yet though, not even a pm. i know she's normally very reliable, so i'm concerned! does she live in an area where the hurricane would affect her communication?

She is in PA, so I don't think the hurricane would have affected her, unless she had relatives down south. I do hope she is all right, its weird to see someone with a lot of swap involvment dissapear.

that would be weird....if anyone still has her address you could email it to someone reliable (maybe a swap section moderator)...and have them do a reverse lookup on zaba.com to give her a call and make sure that she is alright.  i know it might seem sort of stalker like but it is weird that she would just drop offline altogether like that.  i hope she is ok. 

just a thought!

she was my partner ( and the organizer) in june for the "craft your own knitting accessory sway" she sent my stuff way late (said it would be a little late because of family stuff) and didn't actually craft any of the things she sent me, which seems to be the whole point right?

She had a death in her family a while ago, so she may still be behind in things. I was planning on doing a private swap with her and haven't heard since the middle of July. I'm sure there's a reason, she wouldn't just quit in the middle for the heck of it.

Trying to build swap karma

yeah. that's just the risk you take in swapping. You never know what the other person is going through. Sometimes, life just gets in the way.

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!
