Rant...........

I have been doing a lot of swapping lately, but what really gets me is the swap partner that does not even acknowledge getting the package. I spend time making items and paying postage mailing the packages. Is it so much to ask that you acknowledge the package and the contents. Even if you do not like the items that I have made or spend time picking out could you at least email saying you received the package. I am so disappointed in swap partners lately that do not have the common courtesy to acknowledge the swap package. This is just my rant and the sole expression of my opinion.

With that said once I complete the last two blog swaps I'm in, I am done swapping for a long while.

Hi Ruth... courtesy doesn't cost a thing. Our hearts and hands & lots of creative hours are poured into the gifts we make for our partners... so yes, a thank you & receipt acknowledgment is a small thing to do.

take care... have a beautiful day filled with creative stitches & inspiration

hugs
xoxo

I totally agree! Wouldn't it be great if you could just swap with yourself? You know what you want, you know what you like, no problems!

That's a really good point. I always try to leave a thank-you note (especially for the wonderful candy I receive from other countries). I think your idea of posting photos on your blog is great too - it really shows that the gifts are appreciated.
