Swaps I host

8/3 I'm taking a break , I don't know how long. It's really hot here!

There is a lot going on here, and it's summer, so it's too hot!!!!!

I finally got a job that I should start within 2 weeks. I'm not going to host much until I know what schedule I'm on. I will still host July /5/5 ATC swap

I'm pretty awesome. I may cut back some in June. I'm still looking for a job or to move. The desert sucks! To hot! No jobs locally. At least not many.

I'm a widow on s fixed income. If you join one of my swaps and flake, making so I have to Angel I will never let you into another one of my swaps. It is time consuming if I have to make and send extras and I have to put out extra postage. So..... Don't be a ❄❄❄ flaker.

6/7 2018 I'm angeling the following swaps, the letter P ATC in progress

My daughter is selling Jamberry nail stuff @squishyn29 I'll get her to hook up her Facebook to swapbot. She doesn't have time to swap because she has 3 babies, and she's not crafty! Don't know how that happened.

If you are joining my swap please read the description and rules. If I set the parameters at 10 swaps completed, then you need to have 10 swaps completed. If not, I'm sorry I will drop you from swap.

Swaps I'm regularly hosting

I just started the alphebet ATC series

Newbie and beginner friendly ATC

9 random inchies

Adult coloring page atc

4 random twinchies

5/5 ATC

_________ atc inside and out (decorated envie and ATC)

A message about swaps I host.

I try very hard to weed out flakers and drama. But sometimes things get past me. I will Angel if needed, maybe not with the exact theme of the swap, but I will send out something to cover your trouble. Remember snail mail is not instant mail and from USA to other countries can take more than 2 weeks.

I really love swapping and do not want any drama, I just want to trade art. So I will avoid swaps where I know problem swappers have joined.

Pet peeves: please do not steal my swaps. I have tried to come up with unique ideas. If you want to host a swap international that I'm only hosting in USA that's fine but do not copy and paste and use my same title. I just don't think it's in good taste to do this and I always say " how would you like it done to you".

About Me


44 years old. Widow of 6 years. Living in California with my 16 year old son, 3 dogs and 3 cats. I live next door to my daughter Brandy @squishyn29 She has 3 lil boys. Emerson age 3 Oliver age 2 and Nolan a newborn who was born with disabilities. She lives with her boyfriend. She also has custody of my 20 year old disabled son , her brother Bradley aka Beasley. He can not live on his own, ever.

I have a 25 year old son who lives in Michigan, he is a nurse at a pain management clinic at University of Michigan.

My dogs are Easter Bunny a chijuawa, Fiona a Cairn terrier and Zoe my boxer/pit mix. My cats are Snowwhite, Sunday and Peanut. They are all fixed.

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.

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 not offend me if you send me a pegan themed ATC. I like to learn about different religions and ideas, I have studied some of Wiccan and peganism.

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.
