Swaps I host

I moved to lake Havasu City, Arizona Not swapping or crafting much right now though. I have the most awesome and amazing boyfriend. It's just us, my kids live in California and Michigan. I have 3 grandkids that live in 29 Palms.

I don't have time or motivation right now to host swaps. I'll join a few but that's all for now. I really miss all my crafty friends but my priorities have changed

Favorite Crafts

ATC's, inchies, twinchies and skinnies! I love paper crafting! I used to crochet, cross-stitch and sew. My late husband was a woodworker, in fact he helped with a few of my cards that had wooden elements that were swapped here.

Sometimes I scrapbook, but really not to much anymore, I never was very good at it and my penmenship is not so good.

I love rubber stamps. Paper, note cards, I have probably 500 brand new Christmas cards and I have only a couple people to send them to.

Just starting out with pocket letters and really like them.

I also used to make matchboxes and altered Domino's.

Themes and art styles

Themes I like

Cats, owls, birds, vintage, dogs

Artistic medium

I like to draw, I love using gelly roll pens. I also like to cut and paste, collage, rubber stamp.

Risque swaps

I like most forms of humor. Vintage tasteful nudes. Funny memes. Thought provoking cards. Swear words are fine. I like holidays. You will not offend me if you send me a religious ATC.

You will offend me if you just don't send.

Wish list

Wish list

It's at the bottom because it's not that important.

Peices of lace, vintage photos. If you send my cabinet cards I do not cut them up, they are out away.

I would really like some images of 1950/60s housewives. Color, ATC sized.

I love stickers, I probably have to many, but I love quality stickers. If I'm sent sticker flakes or Dollar store stickers I give those to Emerson, he loves to wear them. He also loves to stick them to the floor and the fridge.

Childrens book pages with quality images.

Not interested

I'm am not to interested in Asian style ATC's, any ATC with a horror theme. Not so much into hello Kitty, or the sanrio stuff.

In pocketletters you do NOT need to send tea or coffee. I do not use them.

I just wanted to say Thank you so much for sending me something, after my partner flaked, even after I told you it wasn't necessary. You really did a beautiful job on the ATC you sent, I love it !! You're a great host, I know I'm still rather new & have only been in 7 or so swaps so far, but I hope all the hosts are as helpful & kind as you've been. I've been lucky so far, all the hosts & people I've swapped with have been AMAZING (with the exception of the flaker of coarse) Well anyway I just wanted to say Thanks & wish you a wonderful weekend.
