AS OF AUGUST 6TH
I have decided that I am finishing out my remaining swaps & not participating in any more swaps. I have been burnt/flaked on too many times in the past month. I want to leave before I really have hard feelings. With that being said...
I want to say THANK YOU to ALL my partners that have came through & made me shriek w/ glee from your AWESOME swaps. I AD♥RE you ALL!
And I want to say THANKS FOR NOTHING ... Literally to ALL the people that flaked on me. I hope you all are happy with yourselves. I hope you enjoyed the packages you received from your partners. I hope you all shrieked w/ glee when you got your packages. I hope you laughed when I gave you a "1". I sincerely hope you get what you deserve.
Another reason why I am going to be limiting my swapping is because times are hard right & my life has gotten very hectic all of a sudden. I don't want to become a flaker because my real life has given me no time to create & swap.
FYI I will ONLY join group swaps, swaps with coordinators with good reputations, or swaps I know I will not be upset if I get flaked one.
So you're curious about this Island Broad? Or just lost? Who cares right?!? My given name is Judy but a lot of people know me as Jukie (pronounced jew-key).
I ♥ my fur babies [doggies], family & friends in that order. LOL. I do not have children so I spoil my fur babies.
I'm here because I saw Yoli's (Sacred Yoli formally known as Sacred Snatch) myspace blog about a "random act of kindness" swap. Being the curious person that I am, I came & I haven't regretted it. :)

I'm into MOST types of paper art. Don't get me wrong I can't draw or paint worth caca but I love scrapbooking, collages, ATCs, card making and a bit of origami. I also dibble and dabble in web design & jewelry making. I will try any type of creative outlet at least twice.
When it comes to crafts, I am somewhat of a perfectionist. I will NOT send you anything that I myself wouldn't mind receiving. I put 115% of my heart & creativity into ALL my swaps. I expect the same.
Please notify me within a week of my send date if you have not received my swap. I will do everything in my power to correct that. I would hate to think somebody thought I flaked on them. I know how hurtful it is to be forgotten or overlooked.
Flaking is NOT in my nature.
PLEASE BE ADVISED: I do reuse packaging to limit my waste and to recycle.
My taste in ♫ is eclectic. I enjoy anything from celtric to rap. Reggae[ton] to country. Techno to classic. Swing to rock. Alternative to neo-soul. If the music "speaks" to me or has a great beat, I'm into it.
Some of the authors I like are Jane Austen, James Patterson, Dan Brown, Virginia Deberry & Donna Grant, Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez and Dean Koontz. Harry Potter & Twilight are guilty pleasures of mine too.
If you have any suggestions, LET ME KNOW!!! ☺
I am a HUGE movie buff! I like MOST genres BUT I am NOT a gore enthusiast.
My favorites include, but are not limited to, Waitress, Smart People, Tortilla Soup, How the Garcia Girls Spent Their Summer, ALL the Harry Potter movies, 50 First Dates, Schindler's List and the list goes on.
I have recently come to the conclusion that I watch insane My favorite shows include, but are not limited to, CSI, Law & Order [all of them], Cold Case, Without a Trace, House, Myth Busters, 30 Minute Meals, Sex and the City, Jon & Kate plus 8, and Supernatural.

Although I have a list of things I do not like, please be advised that I appreciate EVERYTHING I get.
I'm always in search of things. I like different things at any given time. Mind you, this is NOT a wish list. I just would love some assistance on where online I would look for these things. If you personally sell this stuff on a legit website, I would LOVE to buy from you.
