About Me

Well, I'm back in the game.... trying to make up for the swaps I flaked on :( If I owe you something...please message me! It's been so long that I am not entirely sure what I owe to whom. Some info got messed up.

I won't be doing many swaps from here on out. Life still has me way too busy! But, I may be up for the occasional 1 on 1 swap with other artsy crafty folk :) If you look at my stuff and see something you'd be interested in.... just let me know and maybe we can arrange a swap, life permitting :P I won't be biting off more than I can chew this time around ;)

Hello! My name is Angie. Just so everyone knows, all of my work gets signed Angel D. Wolf. This has been my pen name for forever and I use it for all of my work.

Please see my hosted swaps! I'm looking for creative folks to sign up and swap! :D

I don't forsee upgrading my Flickr account anytime soon.... so I will be changing my images to show items that I have available for trade... you can still see ALL of my creations at my Artwanted Portfolio :D But be warned... if you're my partner and you like surprises... you might wait until your mail arrives before looking ;)

A stay-home mother of 4 I love arts and crafts. I have been drawing since I could hold a crayon :) I love learning new crafting skills and enjoy seeing what other people have created.

You can see my work in the links above. :)

Comment: I have no words to describe how amazing this parcel was. I teared up with happiness. Seriously. So much amazing fabric... I think I'm in shock, I'll try to make this more coherent later...
Response: LOL I'm so glad it made it ok.... sometimes I think I squeeze too much in for the envelope :P I certainly hope it's all something you can use :) And I hope I sent enough of the mushroom fabric..... some I didn;t have much left of.
