It's hard to describe yourself, your personality, your life, in a few paragraphs.... I live in northern MN with my husband, kids, pets... unfortunately swapping sometimes has to take second place. I admit I have been late on swaps (due to health and family reasons), but I am always in contact with those that I am late on sending and they all mostly have been very forgiving (and I have done the same to people that contact me about being late). Swapping and getting fun mail is my "outlet", my way to relax. But lately it has become more of a "chore" and I did fall behind for a bit. I had to change the due date on some of my swaps because of this (but changed them back when some got very upset). Most are very polite and forgiving and understand that they will get their swaps. And others... well... do you really need to get SO upset? Would you really be THAT rude to me in person??? Really???
We had some family health issues (husband very ill and in hospital / in & out of Mayo Clinic, son in hospital, my 4-wheeler/ATV accident) and 2 of my swaps were delayed. (Unfortunately one swap had 4 partners, which resulted in a few 3s, just from one swap.) And yes, I was late on sending these out. I hope this doesn't affect my ability to join swaps in the future.
As for the 1... well... that has been sent twice, and now I have to re-make and re-send a third time.
As you can see, I have many past & current 5's and hearts.
I understand if you feel since I don't have a perfect 5, maybe you are uneasy about letting me join your swap. Please contact me if you feel the need to drop me from your swaps, it's just the polite thing to do. Thanks.
I am sorry, we have had a lot of health and family issues. Recently, my husband was injured. I am not trying to "jerk" anyone around. Please be patient and understanding, not rude and mean! I am going to finish up my swaps and ratings, and leave for awhile, just need a break from this place....
Things are more stable now... going to try a swap here and there, I miss SB :( Thank you everyone for your kind emails & comments.

Love just about any kind of paper crafting, especially ATCs, rubberstamping, homemade cards, friendship books, decos, inchies, twinchies, and eventually am going to put together scrapbooks/smashbooks for my kids. Would love to try an art journal and am getting a little more into painting (making my own backgrounds, etc.) A few other things on my to-do list: bottlecaps/magnets/pendants, beading/jewelry, and felt work (yes, including hand-sewing.)
I have been pen palling & swapping friendship books, decos, etc. for years and have met so many great people along the way. And even more here on swap-bot! Lately my favorites are N&N (nice and neat) FBs, label/goodie/memo/craft bags (no excess sticker bags at the moment plz.), and exchange slips. I also swap mommy fbs, and am always looking for more people to do private swaps with... just drop me a note :)
