About Me

Having lots of Dr visits, tests, health issues - PM me to reach me, I get email.

Please note: I have M.E. & it often disables me. If I'm late or do not login, thats why. Thanks for paying attention.

I live with my loving husband and animals in Colorado.
Anything nature and wildlife has the greatest importance outside of Family.

I'm traditional, pagan, old-fashioned, sometimes punk or silly, with a renaissance flair.

Things I do: political/environmental activist; artist, crafter, and seamstress; organic gardener; naturalist; astrologer; photography; weaving; writing; proactive about protecting the earths resources for all life on earth. I know this is a very detailed profile - I think its better this way then not knowing, especially after some of the swaps I've been in ♥♥♥ I RATE everyone - 5's & hearts for all who are attentive to my profile! I dont need extras - they are a waste of resources unless its something we love. People who receive a package from me and do not rate had better have a darn good excuse! Im a complete stranger putting my heart and soul into something for you...I expect a rating and response!

The purpose of swapping is to enjoy something in life, and share talents, skills and loves with each other, build community, and be kind to each other...Im not here to collect or accrue material items.

Im here for the soul of it all.

Sunflower4Mowse rated for Art Doll/Dotee swap on Nov 26, 2010
Comment: The Winter Bird Crone was the perfect creation. We feed thousands of birds all year long. We make an extra effort in the winter though. We made her a special place in our curio cabinet where she may bless our many trips to the feeders. Thank you so much.
Response: I'm so glad she found the perfect home - you sound like our house - we spend a lot on bird food for the little critters. But we love seeing them too - and especially when the temps are subzero and we would surely die from exposure, I wonder how they survive...I got a book called Winter World by Bernd heinrich that is all about animals surviving.
