Important Stuff...

I am always willing to do private swaps for:

  • ATCs
  • Memorydex cards
  • Journal cards
  • Altered Index cards
  • Altered Business cards




  • I don't rate swaps on extras, I rate them on the actual swap item. It is appreciated, but not necessary to send extras in order to receive a good rating from me! If I send extras in your package, it is because I like to do it and have it at the time to share.

  • In 11 years on swap-bot I have never sent a swap late! If something were to ever come up..I would communicate with my partner & co-ordinator!

  • Please let me know if I do something wrong BEFORE rating me, and I will do my best to fix it! Thanks!*


Other Stuff...

So much time and so little to do. Wait a minute. Strike that. Reverse it"~Willy Wonka

I am a free spirit with an old soul. I love nature, reading, quiet nights at home, and mysteries. I love baking, sewing, crocheting, paper crafting, jewelry crafting, sculpting (not many crafts I do not like).

I love to draw, sketch and paint. Not the greatest but I enjoy doing it.

Some of my sketches I scan into computer then manipulate it digitally. Sometimes I prefer this look over my original drawing...depends on my mood!!

Just a thought!


  • I am working on a project featuring ATC or Twinchie size Alice in Wonderland & one featuring Nursery Rhymes, in the same sizes. If in doubt what to send, either of these would be perfect!

  • I'm also working on acquiring an APC deck in Alice in Wonderland theme. Thanks!

  • I have recently begun collecting Jokers from playing cards. Any of these would be GREATLY appreciated!

  • I have Trypophobia - which is a phobia about patterns with small holes. I have had this my whole life, but did not know there was a name for it until I was in my 40's! My family just thought it was me being "weird"!. Due to this - please don't send any patterns similar to honeycomb. Thank you! HOWEVER-I would never rate someone down for this!!

Hosting swaps...

I do angel my own swaps that I host, but sometimes it does take me a little while, so please be patient with me! ALSO if you are RUDE and DEMANDING I will NOT be angeling anything for you!



donetta rated for VC: Paper Bag Junk Journal on Nov 20, 2019
Comment: Oh Dana! Not only is each little section lavishly and gorgeously decorated, but...it smells wonderful! Isn't that a weird thing to say about a swap? But it't true...it's a beautiful floral sachet smell, and I'm transfixed. I keep lifting it to my nose...but seriously, I've gotten off track. This little junk journal speaks to me on every level. It's beautiful. I'm just feeling so lucky right now...thank you so much!
donetta rated for TIMs: Thankful Moo on Nov 20, 2019
Comment: Dana, I just love the "thankful" moos...all 4 of them! It's wonderful that each little moo has a very special element...you've given me an idea, and although I won't copy you (I promise), I will be using your technique on other of my little artworks!
