Ruffled Flirty Apron Swap

I have enjoyed swapping for the most part but the last few swaps have really fell short. People just can not seem to do the right thing, i.e. not sending packages,  not acknowledging receipt of their package, sending crappy packages, etc.  As such, I'm done with swapping. .  Here is the swap package I sent to my partner who I had considered a friend. But she flaked on me and didn't send a package in return.  I was surprised because she had been my partner in a previous swap and I had received the most awesome apron package. Oh well, you win some, you lose some.
