11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Re: suggestion about reversing negative feedback on: January 14, 2011 01:22:06 PM
I agree with you edelC!  I have been flaked on 3 times (times 2 and 3 were with one partner that I had simultaneously for 2 swaps.  We agreed to send one big package, I sent a huge box to her and got nothing in return, that sucked a lot)

It sucks to be flaked on and I don't understand why people redeem their feedback by sending to someone else,  I know I would very much appreciate it if someone who had previously flaked on me sent a package.  I know that now I specifically avoid swaps that I see many people who have previously flaked joining.

Haha, okay, seriously loling at eeyore_witch's "not wanting to beat customers" quote, haha

Alrighty then, speaking of eeyore_witch, have I ever told you how amazing she is?  CAUSE FOR REALS SHE IS AMAZING!  I got the most epic package ever from her!  Here, I will show you!:

First of all, the crafted element:

A KOOL-AID JAMMER PURSE!  Isn't it awesome!  SO RAINBOW COLOUR-Y!  SO RECYCLE-Y!!!  I love it muchly, but not only do I love it, my 9 year old son saw it and said "OH MY GAWD!  That is so cool!!!!  Do you think you could figure out how to make me one!?!?!  Can I have THAT one!?"  To which I replied "NO!  You dontt want a PURSE do you!?" to which he replied "IT COULD BE A SATCHEL YOU KNOW!  BOYS CARRY SATCHELS!!!"  My sister is also very jealous of said purse and has threatened to steal it.  I now hide it whenever it sin't in use because she's always sneakin' into my apartment and stealin' my stuff!!!

K, now on to the extras she threw in the box.  SO MANY EXTRAS!  eeyore_witch chose me cause we have a bunch of stuff in common, including an intense love of saving old cabbage patch dolls which have been orphaned and fixin' em up.  She has a huge collection compared to my meagre 17, but she sent me 2 old vintage CPK dolls!  Lookie!  I love em' sooo much and they are welcome editions to my collection!


Then she sent these:

Which I have for serious been wearing EVERY DAY.  Love them.

Then this stuff:

Where did you even find this stuff!?  So wicked, i think I actually had those figures when i was little but lost them.  I'm pretty sure that cheerleader is familiar, except I think the one I used to have was dressed in purple... Anyway,  They are now in my room on my bookshelf  Smiley

And a whole buncha CPK clothes, which is always good, cause lots of times when I scour thrift stores for Cabbage Patch Kids, I find them unclothed and unloved, or half clothed and have to find or knit clothes for them.  Like seriously, my friends think I'm cracked cause I spend so much time making doll clothes when i don't even have a daughter...

Anyway, moral of the story, eeyore_witch is super awesome and this package was a very bright point this week in my extremely hectic life.  Thank you so much to everyone who swapped with me and thank you Troublet for this super awesome swap.  i can't wait until next year!
