My grandson, Camden!! Born 5/8/13.
My granddaughter Ella's 2nd Christmas!
I have dolls to trade! For what you might ask, if you could make me a Frida Kahlo doll, I'll trade my doll for your handmade doll. You can find them here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/cardhappy2009/sets/72157629838884330/
Let me know!
PLEASE NOTE: I SOMETIMES MARK MY ITEMS SENT THE DAY BEFORE I SEND THEM AS I'M PREPARING TO SEND THEM OUT THE VERY NEXT DAY. IT MAKES IT EASY ON ME TO KEEP TRACK THEN. IF FOR SOME DARN REASON I DON'T GET THEM MAILED, I DO CLICK UNSENT AND WILL CLICK SEND WHEN I ACTUALLY SEND THEM OUT.
I know a lot of the swappers don't agree to this practice and I can understand it if I was a previous flaker or late sender but you can see from my ratings, that I've never flaked and I think I was late maybe 2 times but I certainly PM'ed my partner to let her know! Communication is the KEY!
I also reuse bubble envelopes, so my package doesn't look nice but hope the contents are pleasing enough :))
I love to trade. It's also fun to get stuff in the mail that is not a bill or spam! What I don't like is when I get a sticker slapped piece of scrapbook paper and it's called an ATC.
I WAS A SMOKER, IN THE UNFORTUNATE EVENT THAT MY SWAPS DO SMELL LIKE SMOKE EVEN AFTER I HAVE TRIED TO PREVENT IT, YOU MIGHT WANT TO USE SOME KIND OF AIR FRESHENER OR SACHET. I TRULY APOLOGIZE FOR THE INCONVENIENCE. HOPEFULLY SOON THE SMOKE SMELL WILL JUST GO AWAY! :))
I love anything vintage (hence my name), cats (domestic, lion, tigers), birds, mechanical cards, anything happy and cheery and fun! I love love love Frida Kahlo art. I will give you lots of hugs if you make me something Frida :))
See I even look like Frida :))
I collect gumball charms and Cracker Jack prizes from the early 1900's to about 1970.
I also have a jewelry collection: charms, novelty pins, tac pins, lapel pins, lockets, figural pins, cameos, animal pins, fun and cute necklaces, and a miniature collection.
I don't read because I can't concentrate due to my depression. Also my mind just is always in a clutter. I use to like to read Stephen King novels though.
I'm married to a very loving and caring man and we live with our animal babies: Snuggles (tuxedo cat), Jazzie (black and white kitty) and Daisy (shih tzu). His daughter lives with us as well. I have two children from a previous marriage and I'm very proud of them both.
I do photo manipulations and restorations and I am currently addicted to making ATCs and other forms of decorated artworks.
Most importantly, I am a Christian although I don't follow any church. I don't believe you have to go to church to be a Christian. To me a Christian is someone who tries to be like our Lord 7 days a week and not just on Sunday.
See my link for my ATC site above.

The PLEASE DO NOT send list
Anything with a swear word (I wouldn't normally think I'd have to mention this but I think I read someplace that someone like ATCs or artworks with swear words).
Nothing to do with the devil, witchcraft or holiday themes.
Things that are childish looking (stickers included).
ATCs made by or partially made by children. No offense! If I had young children, I wouldn't mind but I'm not into that kind of ATC or any kind of artwork made by kids.
Not into teas, cocoas or recipes or the like as I hate cooking LOL Although if you want to send a gift card for a restaurant, that's acceptable ;o)
Not into note paper as I don't write out letters anymore. But I DO LIKE pretty note cards and home made envelopes!! :))
I don't need bookmarks since I don't read.
Please don't send me recipes, period. Don't send me coloring pages for children or any children's item as I don't have young children. Or bookmarks.
I dislike flakers and people who don't rate and those who retaliate because they are mad!
I pledge to send out my swaps in a timely manner and to rate all my partners. If by chance I am running late due to some unforseen circumstance, I promise to notify the receiver! I do not flake but then I never knew a flaker to admit it ;o)
I can angel for USA swaps that aren't too big.
Just PM me here at Swap-bot!
