Do me a favor? Thank your essential workers during these times. I started on Swapbot because I am an artist on canvas and I also do trades with ATC"S (artist trading cards)ANd I love sending a receiving snail-mail. I have so much fun and make so many friends from all over the world. I love to create with paint and gift them. I am married and I work in a deli cooking. Hard stressful job so it will be fun to come home and get on here and have fun. Oh and I have two dogs and a cat and I live in the country side of Georgia. USA. PS I also love to read and swap books too.
I love cats, dogs, steampunk, anything to do with beaches, garden, marshland,coastal water ways, homemade anklets. I love writing snail mail, never know when you could brighten someones day. I love book markers, homemade works of art. more special meaning. I love the old art, Monet, Picasso, etc. I love international trades of any sorts, I also have started collecting and using decorative napkins, any theme!! (Then I have a nice collection during hurricane season and power outages!) I LOVE teas(all flavors!) and coffee, anything related to them also. Also anything you hand make yourself I consider to be a heartfelt gift. I love scraps of paper and small loose stickers, no problems there! I want to learn to make journals, friendship books and flip books. Also I want to learn to make envelopes. I love how some of you have decorated my envelopes, thus inspiring me to do so! I get great deals on magazines from a vendor at work. Once she pulls them I can have the ones I want!! So some of you may receive a NEW magazine from me! Am also in need of address labels!! My printer is down. Argghh..I need pens! I just had my 2 of my favorite ones die today!!
I also have a several physical conditions that are quite a challenge to me, such as fibroymyalgia , scoliosis and arthritis, Art is a form of therapy for me, its gets me out of bed so I can get motivated and move around. And also run down the the post office!! I enjoy relaxing by looking at ideas for art for my ATC's. and color ideas/mixtures. ALso curling up in bed with my heating pad and a good book or my tablet. There are days I get down, but just moving around with a purpose helps...and so many groups to see on here!!! SOmany ideas I have!
I am not picky! I am open to whatever you send. It so nice to get back to snail mail. I love sending out letters, gifts and trades. I love all colors, not so much extreme bright.(guess cause I am artist.) I love dollar store stuff!! LOL Anything with cats and dogs gives me a smile. If you don't receive something from me message me and I'll fix it!!
I need fine tip pens...for my atc's, I go through them like crazy!! I am a Christian so I love inspirational stuff. I love any kind of stickers and washi tape. Blank ATC cards are always useful! I also love fuzzy socks.I love Oriental art and language. My pens are slowly dying, I would like to receive any if possible.
My favorite crafts are anything to do with painting. I am very intrigued by colors and how people react to them. How they catch peoples eyes. And peoples reaction to one piece of art can very by many degrees. I want to learn how to blend the right colors together. Im being drawn to acrylic abstract. I don't like bright colors, I like dark greens, grays, yellow ochre, and soft blues. when i receive an item from a trade, I can tell by the medium, colors and sayings the kind of person who sent it. I can almost see their "colors" I love seeing art from different eyes. And each trade is like that. An experience, a gift and a glimpse into another person.
I have so many books yet to read but here are my favorites: Laini Taylor- Daughter of Smoke and Bone series. Haldol and Hyacinth by Melody Moezzi (my Favorite) Oswald Chambers-My utmost for His Highest (Christian inspirational Everything by Dean Koontz and Nora Roberts The Leftovers by Tom Perrotta Cozy Mysteries Spirituality( Christian, Buddhism, Catholicism, Yogi's etc) books or magazines
Everyone makes mistakes. Some letdowns are not intentional. If my swap is not up to your liking let me know in a cooperative way and I will fix. There may be times Im not quite up to par mentally and I may mess up a swap. Please let me know so I can fix. I love this site, it gives me a purpose. ANd I am learning to do better at swaps. But being mean is something I dont understand, guess you can say Im soft skinned. Let me fix and Ill be on my way!! Thanks to all who uplift me and friend me! means so much!!
I have had 3 clerks at my little post office the past few months. Some of them are not putting the right postage, they dont even have a computer! She couldnt find Canada nor Malaysia! Just weigh scale to print postage out. SO I have already received one comment about postage due. SO if this happens let me know, Also, my mail has been running late for some unknown reason.As of 2-12-20 I have had 3 swaps received 3-4 weeks after mailed. So give me time to receive and rate, but please message me if concerned! Also, I use a lot of mailing tape on my envelopes I send. I have received so many damaged/open swaps. Post office recommends mailing tape so machine wont eat it and I often do"no machine" on envelope.I f you prefer me not to do that message me and let me know. )5/14/20 Post office has lost several letters I sent out and I am not receiving sent mail(lost,damaged or stolen) I wish I could tell them to take it easy on my swaps, but sadly I cant. Thus why I usually use lots of mailing tape. Boxes may be safer but more pricier to send. It as made swapping less fun...(this was all before coron virus also)
I know this group is not monitored for bullying or demeaning someone as Fb does. I will stay here until I am dismissed. But here in AMerica I am protected by the ADA (mental illness) and I have will protect myself from bullying as needed. If I make a mistake let me know, if the host does not feel comfortable hosting me let let know. If i am dismissed from group I understand. But until then my thoughts are with trying to make people happy with my art and I put my heart and soul into these trades, not to mention money for supplies and postage in USA and overseas. Please forgive my rant but as a disabled citizen I have my rights to protect myself. Thanks you guys!
I've been with Swap-bot formabout a year and am loving it. I want to thank all who have traded with me! ANd for being patient with lost/damaged mail and postage due. I am so happy to resend stuff! No problem at all. I am so grateful for all the kindness you guys have put into these swaps....so I too now do RAK for fellow swappers. I am an artist and have seen some amazing works come my way!! Gratitude after work to sit down with a fresh cup of coffee and put on some fuzzy socks and open my swaps! Love it!! Thank you!
