About Me

I am sorry for the missed swaps my husband of 13 years together came home the beginning of October to tell me he was leaving me itnhas been an awful month and a half and I haven't had the desire to do much. I have also found out he has been draining all our bank accounts and that he has another family my life and my childrens life have been turned upside down and I have to focus on them and myself now. I will one day get my business and crafting back up and running but for now it's all getting packed and I am having to find a new place to live and get my life back together. Please find it in your crafting hearts to forgive my late if not sent at all I'm truly sorry this effected as many people as it did.

I would love to do private swaps if anyone is interested - just please if you tend to be a dramatic person I am not the partner for you :) I love to try new themes and mostly love cards and pocket letters but would consider doing more. I am trying to get away from the crazy dramatic public swaps. I know that I shouldn't let it but even though I have had so many successful swaps there have been 3 swappers who have seemed to attack me and then go on public formus to trash talk me which is not the way that I handle things. Now I have met some wonderful swappers on this site and hope to continue to meet many more. I need to let the haters hate on and just swap my way. I will no longer be hosting swaps that seems to be were the conflicts start so it is better let others host unless I am hosting a private swap!!!

I am a Stampin up demonstrator check out my website at www.birkhart_crafts.stampinup.net/

My blog at www.birkhartcrafts.com/

I am looking to make some great friends and would love to do private swaps with people on a regular basis. If anyone is interested in creating a mail friendship please let me know!

I have loved crafting my whole life! I'm a Stampin Up demonstrator and love to learn new crafting techniques and then pass them along!

I love all things autumn, the color pink is the very best, lagoon teal comes in at a close second. My all time favorite book series and movie is and always will be Harry Potter! I love all things Potter and I'm a Griffindore to the core!

I also might mention that I am a huge fan of the St Louis Cardinals being as they are 15 minutes from my house I have to say I love those hometown boys! And no matter what you think until you have experienced the energy of Cardinal Nation you really have no idea...

I have a small (but growing) Sock Monkey collection. I am a huge St. Louis Cardinals fan and always will be. I love taking vacations to the beach, sun and fun is what I'm all about. Winter and Spring are okay but Fall and Summer to me mean family, fun, love and togetherness.

I have scrapbooks for most of my life but making cards is new to me. It's along the same lines as Scrapbooking so I enjoy it. I also have been crocheting since I can remember my Grandma taught me how a very long time ago and now that she's gone it's the one thing that I can do to continue to be close with her.

My famy is what I have lived my life for and the reason I continue to fight everyday. I love my family all of them human and pet . My husband is my rock without him I would not be who I am today! I have one son who is the ultimate love of my life and now a teenager and I juts don't know where the time has went. I have 2 dogs, a bird, and 2 adopted cats that live at my families business where I spend my weekends.

Speaking of weekends I own and operate a flea market with my mother! I find all sorts of useful items to repurpose and make new again!

I love meeting new people and have always had a passion for crafting! Pens are my ultimate favorite item in crafting I have way to many which still isn't enough! Stickers and now Washi are second!

I am an organized personal have always loved writing in a planner! I have recently joined the Filofax community and I am completely in love with my Filofax's. I love to decorate he pages on how I feel that day or if there is something special going on.

I am trying my hand in blogging (BirkHartCrafts.com) and thinking of starting a YouTube channel but still in the process of working those through.

My likes summed up: Harry Potter Sock Monkeys Dogs Washi Tape All things Planner associated Sparkly things Pens The colors: pink, teal, purple, & gold St. Louis Cardinals Baseball Stickers Autumn Apples Flowers Halloween Christmas Sugar Skulls Dragon Flys Hearts All sorts of paper Football The Beach Caribbean vacations Camping Pretty much anything anyone gives me as long as it is something they themselves would like to receive, I am truly appreciative.

Comment: 11/4/16: I messaged you on 10/27. That message remains unread. You haven't been online since 10/12, which was the last day to sign up for the swap. Swap was due to be sent 10/20. When/if you return to SB, please contact me. I'll re-rate a 3 if I receive.

Comment: Thanks for the cute PL and for sending a few more "fall-themed" goodies so it meets requirements. I love those sheer fabrics leaves. I noticed that you marked this sent on Sep 5th but the tracking indicates it wasn't mailed until Sep 13th. There's a spot where you can click "Oops, mark this unsent" if your mailing plans change -- I mention it because it's not a good practice to mark things sent early, certainly not 8 days early. Thanks again for the swap. :) //Update: Huh, weird. There's metered postage on the envie, and it was purchased on Sep 13th. Pretty sure this is kind of postage is only available at postal counters. https://c1.staticflickr.com/9/8313/29362662104_d80dc9ae81.jpg
Response: It went in the outbound mail bin on 9/5 since that was a holiday I'm not sure why it didn't get post marked until the 13th I do make it a habit to only mark sent the day i put it in the bin. I however will be more careful! Update: I mail it off from work I put it in the bin and they meter the postage here and charge us at the end of the month so maybe the mailroom clerk just missed it and didn't want to say anything I'll talk to their boss about this because I can't have my mail going late thank you for bringing it to my attention
