About Me

Hello all...

UPDATE as of Sunday, 09-27-20

I'm back home in California after being in New York longer than I expected. My cousin encountered some complications from the eye surgery and due to this I had to stay longer. I will be catching up on any swaps that may be due to my partners shortly so please be patient a bit longer and thanks for your understanding thus far.

UPDATE as of Saturday, 08-22-20

I will not be on Swap-Bot much for the next -30- days. Due to a family medical emergency I am currently in the state of New York. I will be reaching out to my swap partners that may be expecting a swap from me during this time. Likewise...if you are waiting for a swap and have not received yet... please reach out to me and let me know so that I can correct that situation as well. I did have everything that I was due to send in the mail prior to me having to arrange for this unplanned trip back East.

UPDATE as of 06-08-20

If you get a swap package from me with additional postage due..."PLEASE: let me know so I can reimburse you for your out of pocket expense. I try very hard to mail my packages with the correct postage but I have recently learned that at least one of my swap partners had to pay a small amount for the package. I work very hard on my swaps and I want you to get them but I don't want you to have to pay anything so please let me know so I can make it right! Thanks...

UPDATE as of Thursday, 01-16-20

I will not be participating in any swaps for a short while. I'm having surgery on my left hand and wrist today due to severe nerve damage.

I am current on my swaps that needed to go out and I have a few that I just received that need to be rated. I will do this ASAP. If you are waiting for a rating from me please message me so that I can check to see if I have received your swap.

As soon as I am able to do so comfortably...I will be setting up some swaps in the "What's In Your Mailbox Group.

Hoping to be back and active swapping and hosting in about a month.....

Thanks... Shelia

Update 11-18-19 Update I've gradually started back swapping and having fun again.

*** Update 7-05-19 Update ***

I had to have a 2nd surgery on the same hand on 6-25-19 due to some complications. This was not planned and completely caught me off guard!!! As a result of this new surgery...the time I will be off Swap-bot unfortunately now has to be extended. I hope to be back to fully participating by mid-August or at the start of September.

Thanks so much for your understanding! 🙂

*** Update 6-14-19 Update ***

I will not be participating in any swaps for approximately -45- days. I had surgery yesterday, 6-13-19, on my right hand and arm and are not able to do to much. I will be checking in from time to time to make sure all my swaps are taken care of...all have been sent and I’m waiting to receive a couple to rate. I should be back to participating fully in swaps around mid July...or early August. Thanks!!!

I’m originally from Knoxville TN. My family moved to So California back in 1968 so...I guess you could say California is my home now.

I love to do crafts...especially with paper. I don’t know what it is but I absolutely “love” paper products; Cardstock, stationery, notecards, journals, whatever ...if it’s made out of paper...I want it. I especially like cardstock with bold patterns. If you are my partner in a swap and you are sending me cardstock samples... please tell me who makes it so I can buy more!.

I have quite the crafting arsenal to play with as well...Cricut Maker, Cuttlebug, Big Shot Pro, Big Shot, Sidekick to name a few. If you ever need a die cut of something...ask me to send you a few... chances are I will have that die...🤓

I will always send my envelopes/packages for any swap that I sign up for.

I will also rate as soon as I receive a swap.

My mail goes to a PO Box which I generally check at least twice a week.

If you do not receive a swap from me within a reasonable amount of time and especially if it is after -2- weeks since the swap ended...”please” contact me before rating me down so that I can get another package in the mail to you. It is obvious that "something" is wrong!
