ABOUT ME

I am a 32 year old single mom of 2 boys, ages 7 and 13. I work a graveyard shift in a very large empty building, and have lots of time on my hands to make crafts.

REGARDING SWAPS: Sometimes I forget to mark swaps as sent even though I've sent them already. And sometimes I don't touch the PC for 2-3 days. Also, I always try to get swaps out on time but sometimes life happens. If that is ever the case, I will PM you to give a heads up and explain why.

  • If I have not rated you please PM to ask why. I try to rate as soon as I receive but that's not always possible, so I have a very hard time keeping track of what I've rated. Also, along the same lines, if I were unhappy with your swap (which really isn't very likely unless you out and out flaked), I would absolutely PM you before leaving a rating rather than just not rating.

Comment: did not receive anything and she was the host of the swap. However, I understand life happens and will change rating if I receive further communication or something for swap. Thanks.
Response: I do deserve this rating, however... My father had a devastating tree falling accident right after the start of this swap. Most of the left side of his body was crushed by the tree, and a short time thereafter caught the swine flu and passed away due to compromised lungs. He was only 62. I was completely derailed by this. I eventually contacted the recipent and sent the ATCs and gave her the choice of changing her rating or not. I understand and deserved this rating. I had a perfect 5 prior to this and will be a stellar swapper continuing forth.

Comment: if i could give you tons of hearts i could. my daughter loved the cup she had to use it right away and then go watch spongebob on tv. and i loved the card very original
Response: Thankyou! That makes me happy that she loved the package. The Spongebob is cut from a Spongebob clay cane I made. I almost didn't use it because he looks demented or something ;-). Also, I wanted to send one more thing that I couldn't get ready in time, so I'll probably send it anyway by itself.

Comment: Thanks so much!!! I LOVE the ATC and the glass.
Response: Thank you so much. The spongebob is a polymer cane slice from a spongebob cane I made. I was kinda hesitant to use it because you have to admit he almost looks like a demented or angry spongebob, lol. So glad you loved it.

Comment: Thank you so much for this wonderful ATC. I admit I had a sneak peak in your Flickr gallery and was very excited. It is great. Thanks
Response: Thank you. :-) I'm definitely not any kind of pro at embroidery for sure. I'm only just now learning basic techniques, so I was kinda winging it. I am so glad you like it and seems you received it pretty quickly too.

Comment: Thank you Cindy. Your parcel surpassed all my imaginations!! those books were fabulous as we didn't have any fairy tales as of yet! I love the cupcake iron-ons, buttons, and other accessories. The magnet itself is a wonderful verse to keep me going on! Thank you and God Blesses!!!
Response: You are welcome. I had fun putting the package together. You seem like a fun-loving soul and those kiddos are lucky to have someone really take them for the right reason. God Bless and I'll look forward to swapping with you again.

Comment: I've given you a five and heart even though this was late because you really made the effort to keep in contact me about the technical difficulties and then made it special with so many extras! I'm glad you were able to learn a new craft! Yay for trying new things!
Response: Thank you. Those were not as easy as one would think. I should have been practicing before the drop deadline to make sure I could know how to make them. But thank you for your understanding and I am glad I learned how to make them because I can incorporate them in other projects now.
