Then a few days goes by and you see where this person has been signing up on other NEW SWAPS - which is a pretty good signal that you have been DECEIVED by this person and that they are NOT SICK !!
I personally do not enjoy being made a FOOL of in this fashion....and I will be warning other hostesses about this person whenever I see her signing up for a new one.
Cordially Yours,
Barbara Parker


I know you are talking about me. And I know you have been talking about me to others. I signed up for one swap to do ONE picture frame that isnt even due until November. DO NOT talk about me to other people until you know what the hell is going on in my life. Just so you know and just so we clear the air. My mom died almost 6 mths ago and from that I have fallen into a fairly deep depression and I actually tried to take my own life which has caused some serious other medical problem. IF you had a taken a minute to maybe ask instead of sending me mean pm's i may have filled you in. I am sorry I asked to be taken out I didnt recieve anything and not send anything it was taken care of. QUITE talking about me behind my back. This is why i will be leaving this group once i get the picture frame done. I DID NOT decieve you. It is a swap not a life and death situation. I will be posting this response to you Barbara Parker when i inform the others of why i am leaving. Thanks for taking the one thing i have that gives me peace and happiness. I hope you are so very happy and proud of yourself.

I've PM'd you the info on RoseColoredGlasses flaking in my diecut swap.

I've still not received her pkg. even though she has repeatedly said they were mailed. I offered a compromise that she could still send them late the day after the DD, and I would put them in the next round. She PM'd me a few days later and said they were in the mail, but I never received them and the last time I checked the DC (like 3 days after that last PM), it was still not showing that a pkg. had been accepted at the PO, so I'm officially listing her as a flaker.

I have made the following changes today:

-CowGirlUp has been allowed back into the Monthly RAK swap under an agreement with GrandmaJ.

-RoseColoredGlasses has been removed from the list as she has successfully completed two swaps since the deadlines of the two swaps she was put on the list for.

I guess I don't understand how this works as RCG has not completed 2 swaps since flaking on my swap that had a DD of 8/24? Or atleast I can't find any documentation in other swaps.

Since flaking in my swap, I see that she did mail 2 weeks late to Scrappinchic in the Magnolia August swap. I thought Scrappinchic's DD was one day after my diecut DD. So that can't possibly count as redeeming yourself, according to your redeeming rules in the second post of this thread where you have to redeem yourself twice by following the rules and mailing on time.

I just want to make sure there is documentation that she is picking and choosing which swaps to mail and which swaps to flake in and she is mailing way late in more swaps then mailing on time. We had a gal do that a couple years ago, Veronica from Vegas, and it was no fun dealing with that issue over and over and over.

I guess I'm missing something here with the purpose of this flaker list...

Just to clarify my swap with Rosecoloredglasses. I allowed her extra time due to family issues beyond her control at the beginning of the month. She did not ask, I offered. So therefore she did not flake in my swap. We have been in contact the whole time. Please do not use my name or my swaps here. As hostess, I will contact Jen with any concerns or flakers I have in my swaps. Thanks!

Thank you scrappinchic.

Gwen, I made the decision that I thought best. Not a biased decision, but one based on the information that I am given by the hosts. I have no interest in picking fights with people over something as petty as this list. If you don't care for the way I chose to maintain it, feel free to start your own. I am too busy to follow what every person does in every swap and put trust in the hosts to report success or failure.

I really have wanted to try a few swaps, but after reading this thread, I don't think I want to chance it and go through the stress of dealing with flakers! That sure would take the fun out of doing them. Glare Huh

That's fine but if you are going to change rules every now and then, then the rest of us need to be aware of this. Thank you for answering why my request to list RCG on the flaker's list was not honored. I will now know in the future to not bother you with flakers for listing on this flaker thread.

I'm not sure which rule you feel I have changed. Please explain so that we can all get this situation understood.

I demand to be removed from the flaker list. I was in constant contact with my hostess and have NEVER flaked before. I let her know what was going on prior to the deadline. This was a situation truly out of my hands, and nothing I could have done different except take them myself to the post office.

I have PMs that I will gladly show. She expected me to remake the cuts in ONE day when I work retail and could not. My plans are to send my cuts to my fellow groups if I receive them back.

Did you even READ the posts prior to marking me as a flaker?

IOM: I am sorry you don't feel you flaked. To me you did. Since I never received your cuts. On or before the DD. I still have not gotten them a week after the DD. My rules are clear cuts and are clearly posted. I follow them unless you were in the hospital or something. Which you were not. It is not my fault they didn't arrive. That is why I require a DC# in my swaps. For this reason alone.


You did pm me I don't deny that. But contact along doesn't cut it. I have to have the cuts in my hands by the DD like my rules state or You flaked on me and I will report it. That is your reposiblilty to get them to me on time not mine.


I am sorry if you feel my rules are unfair. But I treat everyone the same. No special treatment. That is why I put if you can't follow the rules don't sign up in the first post.

I will no longer be doing swaps because I am tired of being flaked on.

I will be finishing this months cut rak with grandmaJ and my embossing rak for the month and then I will no longer be doing them.

I treat everyone fair and I don't feel I did anything wrong by reporting you. You didn't get them to me and that is a fact. I also don't think it is fair to the people that did send them on time.

This is my opinion and rules. And every host can handle thier swaps they way they want.

Jen~ Finished the TH Style Christmas Tag Swap with one flaker. Wanda Dykes...

She PM'd me several days ago to say that she had been sick and that's why she missed the DD but that she would be mailing by today. She still hasn't mailed and hasn't contacted me since the other day. Thanks

Beach Bum mailed on time for Round 8 All-Homemade Swap - Halloween Group.

Beach Bum mailed on time for ROund 8 All-Homemade Swap - Fall Group.

Don't know if this counts as two but she did two separate groups - full round each with separate partners.

Thanks,

Jen, I think you mis-read my post. Beach Bum did NOT flake. I was letting you know she mailed on-time so she can get credit to be removed from the flakers list. My only question is that she should really received two separate credits. Even though I used the same thread, it was two separate swaps. There was one for Fall and one for Halloween. She participated in both, had separate partners, filled the requirements of both swaps, and mailed on time in both swaps.

Thank you,

Kelley

BTT and adding a name to the Flaker List.

CherylBarber1 was supposed to send 3 sets items in the Bags,Tags,&Boxes Holiday Swap.
She did receive items from her partner.
She claimed that she mailed hers, but has never provided me or her partner with a DC# which was required in the rules.
In her last message she promised to send me a DC# by today (Saturday) but I have not received it.
She has been informed that she owes these items to her partner.

Beach_Bum flaked in the January Maggie Swap. I called and talked with her on the phone last week. She said she mailed and she would give me the DC#number. Her partner in the swap mailed a package to her and she has yet to answer her saying she got it! The DC# shows it was delivered. She hasn't posted to say thank you or aything.

She also would not respond to her partner in the 14 day Valentine swap. Her partner got tired of dealing with her because of lack of communication and posted not to mail to her and she would keep the box she had created so she didn't have to deal with her anymore.

I will not allow her in anymore of my swaps!

Jen, you can put me on the flakers list. I am not mailing Rhonda (Heart2Hand) anything. I tried to do the right thing and get hostesses for my RAKs since I am leaving and got attacked instead.
