Mission statement: Rethink Waste: Reduce, Reuse, Repurpose, Recycle.


=================================== ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hello, my name is Sandra, and I am a hoarder of craft supplies. I lived in Ohio for all my life. Retired from medical billing, due to fibromyalgia.

My husband & I met & married after 8 weeks. . He had 5 children, I had two. Together we have 18 grandchildren and working on our 3rd & 4th great grandchildren.

I like my postcards to be 4x6".

ATCs I like to be able to fit into my binder, which has 9 pocket pages. I prefer they not be chunky. Sturdy backgrounds, if it flops in the wind, don't send.

Also, if i'm in your "Fill my Stocking" swap, nothing needs to fit inside my stocking.

Jazmin is our youngest granddaughter is 13 going on 31. She spends a lot of time with us, hoping she will catch a crafting bug. I need to pass my supplies onto someone, right?

Oh, and Bonnie & Clyde are those two cute Boston Terriers in the photo, they are a little frosty now, in 2018-kinda like me.

I am a mixed media artist. I started out doing sewing as a child in 4H, ceramics when I was in my early 20s, and have always taken photos.

The digital age has made taking all the photos I want so much fun.

I bought crafting supplies, thinking after I retire, I would not be able to afford them anyway. Maybe I have too much stuff, or my craft room is too small?

I have thin dies, for my Spellbinder machine. If you need something I can help you with, let me know.

I send extras, but extras come with new swaps. I thought I would scrapbook, but that has not happened yet, except a few for family members.

I consider Swap-Bot fun, and do it because it's fun, not for you all to provide me with more "Stuff". 

The Page by Page group is nice because I dislike mailing a whole journal due to postage & wondering will it get to its destination. Maybe the receiver dislikes my type of workmanship? So a page is perfect, we all get variety that way

Love Comments when you rate are appreciated good or not so great. I don't understand people that don't rate. I don't understand flakers either. No one makes you sign up for swaps.

I'm going to read your profile; I'm going to check your links out. It's nice to know something about the person you are sending to.

If this is our first swap together i'll write you a note. It will not say,"Here's your swap, hope you like it". I like knowing you put an effort into your swap

When I was younger I read books all the time but-no longer read except the internet, minimal-commitment reading & directions-just not enough hours in the day

Rethink Waste: Reduce, Reuse, Repurpose, Recycle Becoming more environmentally conscious is all about changing your consumption along with your habits. The average American creates 1,600 pounds of trash each year.

Yes, I reused packing material, and pass things on I just can't find a place for or can't use

jenmcjen rated for USA ATC SWAPS*** APPLE ATC on Sep 12, 2018
Comment: Oh, I thought this looked familiar when I opened it! I got the one on the swap page!! Lucky me! It's so cute, and the photo doesn't do the boots or the apples justice - so cool. I look forward to testing out the recipe! My mom just made Apple Brown Betty, so I'd better hold off on the apple pie for a week or two, but...soon. Yum! Thanks so much! Oh, and I can't wait to use you little sketchbook journal. Hmm...I am a serious hoarder of journals, so I have to think of just the right use...

Thanks for a fun time yesterday. And for your generous goodie bag. I love clear glue, the fibers are lucious, and the paper ephemera will be fun to use. Looking forward to next month's get-together.
