About Me

PLEASE NOTE: I try to get my swaps done as soon as I sign up because I sign up for so many. Therefore, they do not reflect partner preferences as partners are not assigned until weeks later. I don't sign up for profile swaps for this reason.

I take my membership in the groups I belong to or have created very seriously. I try to sign up for at least one swap per month in each group (other than my own)unless the subject does not interest me. The founders/coordinators/officers of these groups work very hard to think of swaps, vet participants, and troubleshoot any problems. I do my best to support them by signing up for swaps and being available to host when needed.

I have never, nor will I ever flake on any swap I undertake. If I find, by some cruel twist of fate, that I cannot complete a swap by its deadline, I will notify you & the coordinator to obtain a mutually agreeable solution. I will rate promptly. I would appreciate it if you have any problems with or do not receive any of my swaps that you notify me so I may rectify the problem. I promise to do the same for you. Thank you for allowing me to participate in this wonderful creative journey with you!

Comment: Thank you for the Zetti ATC. I loved it. I have never seen the "bleeding tissue paper" before. It is a great addition. Where did you get it? Thank you also for the goodies.
Response: Bleeding tissue is especially made to bleed when water is added. So much fun to play with. I ordered mine on line, but you could check at a craft store. Glad you liked the Zetti & thank you for the heart!

Comment: Mail from the future! Do you have a crystal ball? You already know what will be the faith of the witch. :) I think that her hat isn't a helmet also. The list is growing. Maybe she will be lucky and released before Walpurgis Night (end of April). Then every broom is needed. Thanks for the very fun card!
Response: Oh, yes—the witch’s fate is sealed. My crystal ball says her court case will be over & she will be released before Walpurgis Night! Thank you for the heart!

You are a wonderful swap partner, and I thank you so much for that.

Comment: Thanks for this yummy postcard! Fall is my favorite season, too, with the harvest of our garden and beautiful gold and bronzed leaves; the stars appearing on clear nights with the increased crispness in the air. Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: I would love to experience the autumn night sky without “light blight”. I have to go down to the beach. I’ve seen the Northern Lights twice. Thank you for the heart.

I invited you to the Over Fifty and Proud group. Chatty more than swappy, it's a friendly bunch! Come to Morning Coffee thread.

Thanks for joining Oceana Spirit swap. It's great to read your profile and see Nancy Griffiths and the Wyeths represented in your likes. I love Jamie Wyeth's the Buoy Tree which I saw in Camden, Maine. I want to paint my own version from my buoy tree.

Profile check for Donna Reed Household ATC Series swap #2. This swap we will use a Dryer Sheet in some way to create our ATC. Welcome to the swap!

My head is hanging low because I was rated a 1 for the Art Deco swap by my partner. I have never been rated less than a 5, so you can imagine my shock. I had no explanation why it was given, so I sent her a msg. Come to find out, she never received it even though it was sent early. Although I would have appreciated a "heads up" before the rating, I am so happy it is something easily corrected. I have made a duplicate and will have it in the mail ASAP. Please, all, before you give a 1 rating alert your partner so they have a chance to rectify the situation and retain their previous ratings. This can affect their group memberships, joining swaps & good name. Swap-bot is my life and creative haven, so thank you all for your faith in me.
