16 March 13 -- Whew! That was a big job. But I'm all caught up on both ratings and on reading messages. Thanks to all for your patience.
7 March 13 -- Note to fellow swappers: Greetings all! I'm WAY behind on ratings and updating my swap binder. I hope to get to it this weekend. I haven't forgotten you! Just been swamped at work and with deadlines. Thanks for your patience.

Hi there. I'm artistic and I live in Virginia. I've been swapping since 2004, and found out about this site on 2.22.07 and have been swapping here since then. I love to trade dotee dolls and artist trading cards.
My first name is Felicia.
Please: Nothing edible in swap packages (exceptions being specific to a swap). I'm on a very restrictive diet.
My favorite colors include blues, golds and purples.
I love flowers (the iris is my favorite), nature, books, water (sea, ocean, rain), Asian culture, hearts, tigers and traveling. I write fiction, poetry and essays, and I paint (watercolor). I have a thing for handbags and tote bags.
I'm a voracious reader and love things related to books and tea (i.e. notecards, teapots, stickers, etc.)
Zumba, Volkssmarch (walking), my treadmill, walking/hiking nature trails.
In terms of collections, mine include: dotee dolls, letter openers and blue & white porcelain.
I'd call my crafting style eclectic and artsy simply because I'm willing to try almost anything at least once.
I love to read, travel and listen to music, and I enjoy puzzles (all kinds from crosswords and word searches to mystery and thriller novels), game shows, board games ... and swapping!
mellow jazz, instrumental, Celtic, gospel, Bossa nova
comedies, romantic comedies, and old romantic movies (preferably in black and white for those)
I like 'em dead, laughing, cooking or playing games/challenges. :) So that would translate to: NCIS (love Gibbs!), NCIS: Los Angeles, Criminal Minds, Big Bang Theory, Monk, Psych, various cable news stations, Chopped, Project Runway, Top Chef, game shows and late-night TV monologues. And the hands down guilty pleasure is Fashion Police. :)
painting, scrapbooking, quilting, dotee dolls, assorted other papercrafts, including ATCs. I enjoy receiving card or dotee kits or creating them for people.
I love making, buying and receiving bookmarks. (I usually have about four books going at a time -- a thriller or mystery, a romance, a self-help and an inspirational or faith-based work.)
I update my swap binder records twice a month. If you haven't been rated yet, it's coming up in the next cycle. Including the swap name on the envelope helps with this process and those generally get rated faster.
PLEASE include with your mailing a note with your name, forum name and the name of the swap either on the envelope or inside the package.
Flat mail wishlist items for specific swaps:
COUPONS: Dove products (soaps, body wash, etc); Ivory Snow soap; EAS Advantage protein (shakes, bars); Atkins proteins.
FLATS: I enjoy bookmarks, articles/essays about fiction writing and the creative process, maps, postcards from/about where you live, inspirational or sassy quotes and stickers (especially stickers related to books, reading or tea -- but no actual tea, please -- UNLESS IT'S FOR TEA IS LOVE GROUP swap/activity).
TEAS: See note above about the Tea is Love Group. For those swaps, anything except chais.
GIFT CARDS: These make me happy -- Google Play, Starbucks, Barnes&Noble, Target, Amazon, Teavana
Hope these lists help. :)
Mysteries, thrillers, romantic suspense. See note above about puzzles. :)
Among some of my favorite authors: Daniel Silva, Martha Grimes, Robert B. Parker, Elizabeth Lowell/Ann Maxwell, James Baldwin, Kay Hooper, Langston Hughes, Jayne Ann Krentz, Paulo Coelho, Ha Jin, Michael Connelly.
