About Me

Hi! I am a Technologist who love art. I have done other swaps which includes swapping internationally. Swaps are fun and exciting. I love the thrill of not knowing exactly what I will receive from my swap partner. Swaps allows me to see how creative other people are and to see their interpretation of a theme. There are always a great variety of ideas. Receiving from others not only give swappers a chance to add variety to their collection but it gives an opportunity to add more create ideas to the repertoire of ideas in their creative brain.

Things I Like

Colors that I like are Shades of Brown, Turquoise, Purple, Red, and Black. There are a combination of colors that like together like pink and brown. Well that one had to grow on me. At first I couldn’t believe people were putting pink and brown together. Then I got over it.

I love Butterflies, they are my favorite insects. They are so beautiful to me. When I think of butterflies 🦋 I think about quietness and peacefulness. Serenity.

If I had a pet I would prefer a dog over a cat. When I was a child I loved cats but not so much now. I’ll put it this way I wouldn’t have one for a pet. I don’t rate down or not give a heart if I receive something with a cat or cats on it. That’s okay, it’s not like someone is sending me one to have as a pet. 🙀

I love creating ATCs and I have created and swap artist trading coins also. I've been exploring creating tags of various sizes. I have received some fabulous ones when swapping. My goal is to make stashes of ATCs and tags with messages on it to pass out to people.

I like mixed media journaling and creating my own journals. Most times I give away the journal after I finish making it. Journaling is a great way to express yourself, whether it's through the writing of words or drawing. That is why I like to create them to share with people.

I love different style of pens and journals. I also love different styles and texture paper like lokta paper. I believe I am addicted to washi tape and different adhesives.

I have recently (12/18) gotten me a brand new sewing machine that I have not taken out of the box yet. I got a great deal on it. I do plan to put it to use. I just have to start building up my sewing 🧵 collection. Sewing was my passion as a child. I use to make clothes. When I went off to college I didn’t make time for it that much. Years after college I got married and moved and after I moved many miles from my hometown I found another home for my machine. Then I had children and didn’t find the time for sewing. So now many moons later, my children are teens and give me a little more freedom...lol... I am excited that I have another sewing machine in my life. Now I have to figure out what’s the first thing I’m going to make. 🧐🥰 I plan to have my youngest son record me taking it out the box.🤣

I like variety and what’s made from the heart.

Don’t Like

No food items please or scented things...allergies. Hello Kitty, Harry Potter, Cartoon Stuff(it’s complicated...lol because I do like the Peanuts Characters...Charle Brown and the gang and Betty Boop). Thanks so much!

Favorite Television

I really don’t have a favorite television show that I must watch. I do like watching British shows. We have the Herbie collection, which is fun to pull out and watch. I enjoy watching Mr. Bean. He is funny to me. 🤪🤓

Swap Information

If you don't receive a swap from PLEASE let me know, I will resend or try fix the problem. I’m not responsible for what happens after I drop it off at the post office, but I will resend if necessary.

My goal is to send out swap items before the deadline. Majority of the time I try to send the swap as soon as I find out who my person is. When I decide to join a swap I make sure I have the items already available. Then when I find out who I’m sending to I check their profile so I can tailor the swap item to what the person like and don’t like if it’s a profile related swap. Even if it’s not a profile base swap I still like to check a person’s profile so that I won’t send them something that’s on their dislike list. Now if the swap says to put it in an envie or pack it and seal it before finding out who your partner is then I absolutely will not check profiles then.🧐😀

If there’s ever a question about anything please contact me. I didn’t join Swap-bot to make other people’s lives miserable by joining swaps and not sending the required items. Swap-bot isn’t my first go around of doing swaps. I’ve been swapping with another online group for over a year and I still swap with them with no problems. I’ve done US and international swaps with them.

When I came across Swap-bot I thought it would be a great opportunity to expand a little bit, meet other creators, and get ideas from other creators. I consider myself a fair and understanding person. I don’t mind working through situations with people and I would like for others to do the same.

Random Thoughts

Variety is the spice of life. 💫🏷📬🧩🎯🐚👡🧵🧥👀👅

I love homemade envelopes! But there's one problem...When I receive them it's hard for me to use them. The purpose of receiving them and exchanging them in swaps is to use them, correct? SMH. Well, I just got a new idea...maybe I should use them to make envelope flipbooks. That way they just won't get marked up, mailed, and tossed to the side once they have been ripped open and all the contents taken out.

I just came up with a great idea for all the used envelopes that I kept from swaps. I'm thinking about turning them into a junk journal. Hmm! Just know that if you sent me a swap in an envelope that you made or decorated, it just didn't get trashed. I also recycle the yellow envelopes that people send swaps in.

puuyui rated for Sticker Destash RAK on Jun 21, 2019
Comment: Don't forget those plain circle stickers! They can be a "background" so you can slap another sticker a little off to the side on them and make and make an accent of them! =) I love doing that on my planner! =D
Response: Thanks for another great idea.

Comment: Thank you for passing on the washi bag. I have my eyes on some samples that I definitely would love to pick.
Comment: Wow!! Both pages are amazing!! I love the feel of the pages - gelli printing just adds so much to the texture of paper! Both pages are so different and yet so gorgeous - thank you for spoiling me!!
sweetgypsy rated for USA Puzzle Collaboration #1 on Jun 20, 2019
Comment: Great puzzle piece! (I am glad you taped it in because the entire bottom of the envelope was open.) Thank you! :)
Response: Oh No! I’m glad I did too. Normally I put packing tape on all my non machinable mail but I guess I didn’t that time. I wonder what is actually done to mail between the time we drop it off and the time the person gets it, I received some swap mail last week that was partially opened. 😲
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful bird-themed envies! I love them!

Response: I’m glad you liked it. I like making ATCs. When you get a chance may you take a picture of it and send it to me? I forgot to take a picture of it. Thanks a bunch! I’ll send you my email.
