Got my beautiful dreads from Leanna Moore today. Gorgeous thin tight naturals!
I am in love. Can't wait to install these.
Sorry the pics are not great but I wanted to post ASAP and it's already getting dark here so I had to use non-natural light.

This is my first swap and it has been a wonderful experience. Thanks Leanna:)

I'm about halfway done, too! Should be able to get some more done today, thankfully.

40/60 done! Should have these off on Monday or Tuesday.

I received my dreads, too!

ello everyone i received my wool dreads today but I'm a tad disappointed. :i3:
the dreads are't what expected..they are in different sizes some thick and other super skinny.
did not have what i asked for eventho she said she would make it they way i described. i asked for crumple texture but i got all of them straight . im sure she could of look up some tutorial on here to make i that way . i also asked for that webby affect but it was ok if she could do it. they aren't in same the length, it varies from super short to super long. some have rubber bands attached to them which makes me believe they have been worn.They don't look like they got felted enough as some have cracks . Mostly they look like random dreads put together.. did not put any thought into them or something.This set is not something im putting in my head.

Although you could have let me know how you felt personally before publicly.
I am sorry they were not what you expected, a lot of time and money went into making them so i am sad that you are not satisfied. The ones with rubber bands should not have made it into your set and I really do apologize for that, but I did my best. I will let others I am swapping with know how you feel.

I am really sorry the swap did not go the way you were hoping.

The point of this swap was for people to get more practice with what they do and to have fun.

I also feel really bad that they are unusable to you, if you would like to send them back I would cover the shipping charge and could perhaps send you a pair of cyberlox instead, but I did have fun and I got some good practice time in, and I do hope your next swap is more what you expected. :)

Just want to pop in and say my dreads arrived from Jynx and I am having them put in as I speak. Also, I mailed the set for hellcity on Monday and they should arrive within 2 weeks.

I got my dreads today. I LOVE THEM so very very very much. They match my hair so great right now. I am looking for somebody to install them ASAP

Also thank you to my partner for being so patient with me. My wrist is almost healed and I plan to start working this week. I will work my hardest to make sure you get them soon. Thank you so much

You're a total sweetheart. I feel like such a I fail. Organize a swap and then fail to meet the deadline myself.

I think I am going to start on them tomorrow :D

I just wanted to check and see if there is anybody who has not sent or received their dreads yet. I know two girls are still waiting very patiently is there anybody else?
