Thats a tough one, but honesty is always the best policy- but you don't want to embarrass her so you should email her and let her know you were disappointed- give her an opportunity to make it up to you. To blog it- just use a photo of what you sent and a photo of what she gave you. You wont have to explain it- a picture will say it all! I have been in bad swaps too- and I am still waiting for a heart in return for this one- for me, its about the making- so, i hope it will be worth the wait! xox, calamity kim Sent from my iPhone
