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.

Please don’t feel you must include extras in our swaps. Your awesome creative art is enough to make me happy and is the base for my rating.

I take my membership in the groups I belong to or have created very seriously. 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: Thanks for the great 'chunk'. We have had snow here but it doesn't stay much longer than on Cape Cod. We currently have about two inches on the ground and it is closer to ice than snow. I am familiar with snow on the Cape. My daughter and her family live in the same town as you, just off exit 8. She complains all the time that there isn't any.
Response: Nice t meet someone from New England. I have ties to ME as well. My daughter’s in-laws are from Lewiston & our family had a camp in No. Chesterville when we were young. A fun swap! Thank you for the heart.

Comment: Hello! What a wonderful Lucky Clover ATC. I think we both were in the same boat on this one. I only had the mini LC distress ink, so got a bit creative and shaded with mine. I love the gold dots on yours... very clever! Thank you for the extra bits. As always, wonderful swapping with you! :-)

Wishing you a safe and happy first day of winter!

HAPPY WINTER!

"I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, 'Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.'"

  • Lewis Carroll

Love and blessings,

Your friend, Yvonne
