28/3 Finally starting to walk but still no driving. All good for a full recovery. March Well its been a journey. Accident, broken ankle, surgery , away from home and now in a wheelchair for 6 weeks. If I have not rated please let me know. Those narcotic painkillers have a lot to answer for. 13th Feb 2017 Apologies guys! If you are waiting for rating and maybe swaps I am in hospital Broken my leg , both bones waiting for surgery. Be back soon xxxx
Please do not panic if I have not rated your post for up to 6 weeks. The postal system seems to be crawling at the moment. I am continually amazed at how reliable it is given the distance from me to you.I have had the very occasional loss. The longest wait was 12 months! I have found patience to be a virtue so particularly if we are regular swappers I am not going to give you a bad rating but trust that it will get here one day. It's always great to communicate though so a quick message is appreciated if you are concerned and I do love a chat!
I am a Mum and Wife who loves a crafty challenge.
My goal is to exceed 1000 swaps in 2017!
Who would have thought a simple card would have started this 3 years ago. Nearly all my swaps have been with ATC and cards, mainly because of postage costs.
We live in an idyllic seaside town right down at the bottom of the world in South Australia. I have made some very special friends and swapped with some very gifted artists on here. Thank you to each and everyone! .

My Christian values and faith are very important to me.However I am not judgemental or particularly opinionated. I believe in love and living at peace with all. I try to show respect and treat fairly all without judgement. I find that kindness and acceptance are easy to give and I enjoy bringing joy to others . Please do not send that which may offend. ( Wicca, Pagan, Violent, Ghoulish) I do enjoy "nice"halloween themes and fantasy.
