About Me

VERY IMPORTANT

In my line of work I travel a lot out of town and out of the country and I am talking about 3 times a month therefore I will try to make all my swaps in advance and let them to a familily/relative to mail them for me while I am away. But I cannot always count on someone to do it on time (they usually ask me why I do not use the email)...I just smile. They would not understand anyway.

But I can guarantee you I WILL NEVER FLAKE a swap and if I know I will not be able to post my swaps on a deadline I will PM the host AND my assigned partner to let them know or I will not join the swap at all.

If you do not receive your swap after a fairly amount of time, pleeeeaaaaaaassse just PM me and I will resend ASAP.

ETC

  • You can send all PCs writen and naked, unless the swap requires otherwise.

I particularly like vintage, black and withe, night views and landscapes. But in general any postcard will do even the cartoon ones.

  • I recycle my envelopes.

ETC...

I don't drink coffee but I love tea. I am not into sweet candies too much but I have two sins: Jelly's sweet as in the HARIBO kinds like jelly/gummy candies and TRADER JOE'S dried fruit.

One on One swap

If you have interest in One on One swap , please PM me. I would like swap:

Zentangle ATC

Zentangle inchies

Zentangle dominoes

Altered dominoes and other game pieces

Altered Matchboxes (32ct and 250ct)

Mini books/Album (see them here

Comment: I just received your swap today. Thanks for the wonderful postcards..
Response: Dave, If you want me to do a resend then with pleasure I will. No problem with that. It is unfortunate that you do not have enough patience although I explained that mail is very slow from/to Haiti. And if you want to check with the other participants I have not received any PC from my partners either but I am in no rush of rating them a ONE. I will be back in PAP hopefully Saturday and I will resend to you and atinagrace. Unless the mail is lost in the limbo you WILL receive the already sent PC's and the resend as well. Really sorry that you are all upset over this issue. I will let you know as soon as I drop them in the mail again. Cordially

"It's not that we spend five days looking forward to just two. It's that most people do what they enjoy most on those two days. Imagine living a life where everyday are your Saturdays and Sundays. Make everyday your weekend. Make everyday a play-day…"

Hi Shallale, Thank you so much for the postcards of Haiti. They are very special to me becasue I was in Mirebalais over the New Year. I worked on a new school, Destined for Grace, that opens in September. The children were so adorable and lovable. Take care and see you in more swaps.

Jenzeestyle on Jan 12, 2011:

Loonstruck on Jan 10, 2011:

I just received round two of the postcards. What beautiful pictures! Thank you for your generosity. It's really going to ignite my kids' imaginations.
