About Me

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: Cool postcard. Why did you put the laminate over it? One of the things I love about mailart is being able to touch the art (unlike art an art museum). You didn't have anything bulky on your card so you didn't need to seal it. But, otherwise, I thought it was great.
Response: I am no longer going to laminate my PCs after the next swap (I have it already done). Thank you for the compliment & heart.

Response: Thank you for the heart. I appreciate the very encouraging comment!

Comment: Thanks for the card! I like the way it is made and thanks for sharing the summer feeling! :-) Just one pity; the plastic cover ... I really like paper to be just paper, mat and plain. Have a lovely summer, enjoy it!!!!
Response: I appreciate the constructive criticism. Glad you liked the theme.

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.
