~I've found such a creative outlet in making ATCs~I often enjoy a glass of wine in the evenings~I wait patiently for the long, lazy days of summer~
I pledge to rate within a day or two of receiving. I will follow up with my partner if I don't receive within a reasonable time and will not rate a 1 unless I don't get any communication. I hope you will extend me the same courtesy :)
Hearts, hearts, oh the hearts...I put my heart into each and every swap whether I happen to add something extra or not. In turn, I give a heart if your swap touched me, whether it was the swap itself or for some thoughtful extra that I've been wishing for!
Love Andrea Bocelli, Norah Jones, Paul Simon, opera and country
Just read the trilogy of Big Stone Gap by Adriana Trigiani. If you've read these, please pm me...I have some questions and was hoping to find someone to talk to about these books!
I love historical fiction (favorite was Cane River)
Desperate Housewives, Project Runway...can't wait til next season, What Not to Wear, many programs on HGTV
Planes, Trains & Automobiles, Romy & Michelle's High School Reunion, Wedding Crashers, Hitch, Beaches, The English Patient, The Color Purple, Once Around and The Shawshank Redemption.
I love making ATCs and have discovered that I truly enjoy the vintage type~collaged ATCs in warm, muted tones~anything aged looking with sepia tones~old love letters and postcards are some of my favorite elements.
jadite green~browns & pinks~aqua & brown~sepia tones~shabby roses & ticking~contrast of black & white.
My only real pet peeve is when fabric or paper smells of smoke. If you are my partner on a swap, a small piece of a fabric softener sheet in the package would be greatly appreciated!
Also, please no extra papers unless they are highly unusual like handmade or mulberry.
