Life has really kicked my butt as of late, the loss of my best friend of 25 years, a new job that has me beyond spreading myself thin, a college course and commitments to swap bot and craft shows...can you say I've bitten off more than I can chew? As most of you know I try to be a quality swapper and most of you are happy enough in the knowledge that "it's coming"...thank you for your kind understanding and patience. These are my last swaps for a while till I get my life under control again. If I was late I'm sorry, If I was on time - I'm glad it was timely, if I say it's coming...it's coming. I don't flake.
I am a happily married Puppy Mom who resides in Maryland. My furbabies are a little boy Maltese, Lukie and a little girl Malti-poo, Tinka. I also love a Japanese Fighting fish named... "Bubbles", he waggles his fin when I talk to him. I am a crafter,an artist, a baker, a proud Latina,a lover of all things creative. I am earthy, exotic, classic, old school,old world,anti-cued, edgy wrapped in to one happy little wrapper.
I love swapping and put my heart in to everything I send my swap partners. If you have not received a rating from me it's because I haven't received my goodies, so feel free to check with me, sometimes snail mail takes a while!
I love little notes in my swap packages, with a little clue-in on the "whys" or "hows" of it or just a "Howdy do". I love giving hearts, I give them for true effort and thoughtfulness, not just for extras (though those are fun too, I don't expect them and don't rate based on them.)
I know life gets busy...so in the event you're swamped with swaps and you're going to be a little late...let me know...I always appreciate the shout out...and totally understand when life gets in the way!
Rating: I really believe rating is a show of manners and polite swap etiquette. I am most bothered by non-raters...your lack of rating tells me you don't: appreciate my efforts or have manners. Great care goes into your package/project, no response...sucks the fun out of it...know what I mean?
I really enjoy my time in Swap-bot Swap-land, the whole happy thing is a little addictive! Thank you all for making this so much fun! Happy Swapping!
