FLAKING: I will not flake on you. Please let me know if you did not receive an item and I will resend. I try to get my items mailed out as soon as possible after receiving my partner information.

Please rate your partners, it is the right thing to do! I like to rate my partners as soon as I can. Please let me know if I have forgotten to rate you on a swap.

I look forward to swapping with you.

UPDATES: 2/08/18 In July I had an injury at work and tore my rotator cuff in two places. I had surgery for this injury in October and am currently seeing a Physical Therapist for rehab. Because of this I have not been able to participate in crafting. I am slowly getting better range of motion and am ready to start working on my crafts again. (It has been a crazy couple of years).

05/24/17 Had another surgery on my eye today. The initial biopsy has come back clear. I am believing in prayer & healing.

01/10/2017 I just found out that my cancer has returned. I am going to complete the swap that I am currently hosting and then I will be taking a break from Swap-bot for a while to focus on my health.

10/17/16 My cancer was much more aggressive than originally thought. I ended up having complications and 5 surgeries. I had to have my eye sewn shut in order for it to heal properly. I just had part of the stitches removed last week and am recovering. The remaining stitches will be in for another 5 weeks then hopefully I can put all this behind me for good.

7/14/16 Another update: I was just diagnosed with a very rare cancer on my eyelid. Have just had surgery and am recovering. I will get back to joining swaps etc soon. Thanks for understanding.


Hi. I really dislike these about me sections as I never know quite what to say. But, here goes; I am married to a wonderful Scotsman. Step-mother of two I am a born again Messianic Christian woman. As such I do not celebrate the typical Christian holidays of Christmas & Easter. Rather, I celebrate the traditional Biblical Feast/Holy days. Please do not send anything Christmas/Easter related. I believe in modesty and wearing head coverings (tichels) when praying as commanded in 1st Corinthians 11. I love tichels (head scarves, prounounced like tickle)) and am trying to get a large collection of them. Some of my absolute favorites are from Wrapunzel dot com. They have some beautiful tichels. I also like things to accessorize my tichels with; old brooches, hat pins, even headbands. If you've never seen a tichel check out the above website and you will see what I am talking about, and possibly understand why I like them so much.

After going through a really tough couple of years with the death of my dad and being diagnosed with a rare cancer on my eyelid and the subsequent treatments that followed I have come to realize that I needed Yeshua (Jesus) in my life more than I could have imagined. I had at one very dark point in my life turned my back on him and all things Christian. I am thankful that he is merciful and that his love endures forever.


Some things I love: Chickens, chickens, chickens!!! My kitchen is decorated in a chicken theme.

I love to travel, camping, the mountains, beaches, thunderstorms, big nature lover. Reading is my passion. I love different crafts especially mixed media art.

Cooking, baking, gardening, canning, etc are favorite pastimes

. I love my Happy Planner. Anything planner related will be greatly appreciated.

I am a paper addict. Love to make all kinds of crafts but especially those that involve paper such as: ATC's, bookmarks, journals, homemade envelopes, card making, altered books, tags, mini albums, toilet paper roll albums, and on and on.

I also enjoy; making jewelry, altered dominoes, sewing, quilting, soft sculpture dolls, making bath items such as salts and bath bombs.

I love to learn new techniques so if you have any to share I would love getting directions from you for them. Especially for new & exciting backgrounds for art journalling.


I love sending & receiving postcards. Please send them naked (without an envelope & stamped, not machine stamped). I have received some beautiful ones from all over the world through Postcrossing. If you are interested in a direct swap please message me.

Here are some ideas for postcards to send: Historical interest* Art themed* Norman Rockwell* Monet* Wildlife* Nature* Cemeteries* Old buildings/ruins* Castles* City (cards from your hometown) Different countries* Book/magazine cover themed* Oddities/unusual things* Poetry* Old movie stars/movies* Birds/butterflies* Anything Scottish related* Anything from 1939 (reminds me of my dad)* Vintage* Steampunk* Wildflowers*

Any related to my profile likes

There are few postcards that I wouldn't like but please nothing vulgar, no ad cards, homemade or zazzle unless I specifically sign up for it.


Here are some of the themes I like; Nature* Twilight zone* Alfred Hitchcock* Vincent Price (back when movies didn't have to be gory to be good) Butterflies* Vintage* Victorian* Lace* Ribbons* Buttons* Ephemera of all types (except junk mail) Maps* Old greeting cards (I make these into journals)

If it's crafty I will probably love it. Love tea towels and am trying to get a large collection of them

I like Alice in Wonderland, Betty Boop, Ziggy (anyone else remember him?)

I love books, the feel of them, the smell, the sound of the pages turning.

I love receiving homemade items that have been made with care.

Wish List

I would love to get the following: Background technique ideas for journalling and ATC's.* Buttons for sewing (all shapes, sizes, colors)* Ribbon & Lace* Unique papers* Stencils (homemade is fine)* Stamps (rubber or clear...used postage works too)* Punches* Glimmer Mists* Alcohol Inks* Broken jewelry* Ephemera* Books; especially if it's written in a foreign language,sheet music or if it is an older book with hard cover.*


I haven't met a color I didn't like. (Okay, that's not totally true. I don't like girly pink.) Hunter green is my all time favorite. Some other favorites are: browns, oranges, reds, yellows, (earthy Autumn colors) blues, greens, purples.

Believe it or not I love paisley and plaids (yes, I'm weird like that.)


I do not drink coffee but love tea. I do not like lemon, ginger, Chai, or raspberry flavored type teas..

Not a fan of gummy candy or other soft candies. Anything that would melt probably wouldn't make it here as it is hot most of the year.


I do not like the following: Violent themed, Anime, manga, kawaii, princesses, hello kitty, most Disney items, abstract art. Obscene content items.

Also, please if you smoke, try to air items out before sending as I am sensitive to cigarette smoke.


I look forward to swapping with you. I try to put a lot of effort into my swaps and ask that you please do the same; (no stickers stuck on a plain background and call it an ATC). Incorporating stickers is fine; but I actually received an "ATC' that was plain red card stock with one sticker stuck smack dab in the middle of it and that was it.

I love the creative process and believe everyone is capable of making "art." I do realize that we all have different abilities however, and as long as it looks as if you tried to put effort into it that is what matters to me.

meenaRN rated for Why do you leave hearts? on May 7, 2018
Comment: I give hearts a lot too. I joined swap-bot to share ideas and my work with others. I only dislike two things 1) lateness 2) sticker slapping. If someone puts time and effort they get a heart. Thanks for sharing.
