I love making ATCs, small canvases, 4x4s, tags, art journal pages; just creating in general. I often want to try something new but lack the confidence to do so. shrug
My favorite themes are:
**I am a married mother of 2 fantastic adult children. My husband is amazing and I would be lost without him.
**Both of my children are in the military. One is a Marine, one is in the Navy. Americana, red/white/blue, anything patriotic....these will always be welcome to me.
** I LOVE Broadway showtunes. I firmly believe that I should have gone into musical theatre, not that I can sing or anything. :-)
**I have pets. I try to keep them out of my studio. (2 newfoundland dogs (both female) and 1 white cat with black spots. I have pics of them on Flickr)
**I am a non-smoker.
**I am an online gamer as well as a mixed media artist. I'm currently back to playing World of Warcraft and Diablo 3 while waiting for EverQuest Next to finally get around to being. I have played Rift, Runes of Magic, Star Wars The Old Republic, Elder Scrolls Online, and a handful of others.
**I watch a lot of YouTube artists. I wish I had the courage to do process videos but I don't. I'm just thankful that other people DO!

I will always Rate. I tend to rate in batches so don't panic if I haven't rated you immediately. Sometimes it takes me weeks to rate. If you're concerned if I got the swap, please message me.
If I'm going to be late in sending, I will let you know. I personally don't get fussed if someone sends a day or so late.
Please understand that I try very hard to make my cards nice. No globs of glue showing, edges trimmed neatly or covered completely, embellishments secure. I expect the same in return. I think it's SAD that swap coordinators (myself included) have to write "Don't slap a sticker on a piece of cardstock and call it an ATC". I have nothing against scrapbook stickers and I think they are handy. But use them creatively please.
I don't normally give a shout out to things that I want, but if you happen to have extra bits of Graphic 45 paper you'd like to share, I would definitely be interested. I like most all G45 collections but I'm looking specifically for Bird Song & Steampunk Debutante papers. Also anything from the christmas and halloween lines with the exception of An Eerie Tale. I do have a paper pad of the By The Sea collection so don't really need that one. :-) "Need"....I guess I don't really "need" any of it. LOL
Regardless if I put these in my hosted swaps or not, these rules will ALWAYS apply to any swaps I host:
**No sticker slapping
**Do your best work; send something you'd like to recieve
**I will always angel for flakey senders. If I have to angel for a flakey sender, said flakey sender will be permanently banned from any of my future swaps and I will name them on this page
**If you receive something that meets the swap requirements, please rate a 5. We do not all have the same level of artistic ability. However, random doodles and a sticker do not count as "meeting the swap requirements"
**If you have any questions, send me a message. It will get a faster response as I don't check Swap-Bot on a daily basis
