Please forgive me if I'm a little slow in rating as I do my best to sit at the PC when I can and am able.
I take no offense to anyone nudging me for feedback. Please if I've missed giving you feedback, just bop me on the head :)
I'm once again having issues with my post reaching it's destination. Please let me know if you don't receive something! I tend not to hound people for ratings. I know how easily life gets in the way of rating, and don't want to bother someone if they're dealing with more important things.
Please know I hold all my swaps very high in priority and never "NO SEND" anything. That's just not my way. If I'm going to be late, I'll do my best to let you know ahead of the due date. However my life randomly likes to take the wheel and steer me right into a brick wall.
If you feel I've missed something or you didn't receive something from me, please pleeeease PLEASE let me know before rating me a 1. Thanks.
Thanks to those of you who I have swapped with who put their heart and soul into things! It's much appreciated! I love all the swaps I receive that have been made with attention, love and care. I swap for the joy of swapping, not to rate someone on their artistic skills. I love seeing what others do and make. It makes me HAPPY!
This is an older image I am however having problems with my mail reaching it's destination lately! Please please let me know of your swap from me doesn't arrive so I can make it RIGHT! I take my art swapping very seriously. Thanks to those who have been so kind in letting me make things right. We have had a very horrible postal sub and have complained numerous times.
this swap almost didn"t make it to me. my husband found it on the front lawn in this state
I'm a mom, wife, daughter,sister, friend, and avid pack rat artist. I love finding fun things to use in art and have too many "junk" boxes to even use it all. I've actually started to pare down a bit by letting my artist friends pick over my stashes.
My "real" job is working as a designer for a local family owned metal company. We do metal art silhouettes, signs, and home decor, as well as copper items such as range hoods, fence post caps, pot racks, and mailboxes. I love it, as it's just varied enough to keep my Gemini wanderlust in check. I haven't become bored in this job as much or as quickly as I had in other jobs.
I also sell my miniature fairy doll ornaments on Etsy, as well as a lot of my original artwork. That's more a hobby than a "job". I'd love to eventually get it to the working job point somewhere along the line. (end 2012) I've slowed my swapping quite a bit this year. I miss it terribly, but my other priorities have to take a front seat. I'm hoping in 2013 to swap a bit more regularly. If not I might explode!
(2012) Settling into mommyhood...slightly. I LOVE every minute of watching my little Val grow, but find the crunch time for my creativity a little bit of a bummer. I use my art as an outlet for my stress, depression, or boredom (though boredom hardly ever rears it's ugly head right now) ...without it I get cranky, and a bit uptight.. Ok, I'll say it.. I get BITCHY. So I've been trying to stick a little bit here and there in. Stuff I can do in the wee hours of night, silently so as not to wake the two sleepers. It's taking it's toll though so I will most likely have to slow down. It's barely possible for me to hold down my "real" job, my etsy shop, and mom duties, let alone create.....
This is a year of great ups for us(2011): My husband and I celelbrated our 15th wedding anniversary in October and welcomed our first child in July of this year. He's our special little miracle boy and we're just smitten.
This year couldn't have come at a better time. We had a year of downs last year, losing my mother-in-law to Lung cancer in November last year after dealing with a year of her being "ill" and not knowing what it was.
.I've been a mailart hound since 1997..maybe even earlier, but I got really serious in 1999.
My name is Chelsae, though most of my friends just call me Chel, or Chels. I'm very nearly 38 and addicted to art.
..I'm a SHARPIE ADDICT! I'm a dabbler..I'll try anything once....and get easily addicted to new things. Knit,crochet, altered arts,sewing, making jewerly, making miniature fairy dolls, plushies, broches, felt creatures and wearable art, ATCS,
I need to do creative things to keep myself sane. I love swap-bot because it's introduced me to so many fun ideas and new things, as well as meeting some pretty darn amazing people along the way! :)
I'm totally addicted to music. My music love ranges from classical,jazz, and the like to alternative and more. I totally love music.
My favorites currently are Gotye, The Avett Brothers, Amos Lee, Iron and Wine, Tina Dico, Feist, Maroon5, Rufus Wainwright, Marvin Gaye, Norah Jones, Cake, Radiohead, Emogen Heap, Charlotte Martin, Jet, Steely Dan, Crosby Stills and Nash(and sometimes Young) Ben Harper, Regina Spektor, Charlotte Martin, and on and on and on.
I'm totally enamored with Pangolins right now. EEEE so cute! manta/stingrays, aligators,bats,horses, bears, elephants, mice, rats, dolphins, otters, owls, capybara, the purple frog (not just frogs that are purple, dumbo squid, vampire squid, axoloti,
umm...LOTS of animals! there are very few I don't like! :)
Greens, Blues, Purples in various combination. I like most colors really though I'm not a huge fan of oranges. However oranges sometimes work and are needed. Favorite combos, Aqua or Turquoise and Brown, Pinks and Browns, Hot Pinks and Black, Grey and Aqua, Greens and Blues, Reds and Black
I love televison. I don't get to watch like I used to as I'm making healthier life choices (well sometimes) and tend to not sit in front of the "boobtube" anymore.
Favorites from the past: Firefly, Friends, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, The Young Ones, Monty Python
Favorites currently: The Walking Dead, @Midnight Hannibal,Modern Family (talk about a show that makes you laugh out loud! ) ugh I could go on and on...let's just say my dvr isn't large enough to house all my obsessions.
I'm a discovery channel addict I get the additional channels of discovery, the history channel and those sorts of things and I'm constantly dvr'ing something to watch. I love anything on Egypt, or ancient history
paper scraps. While I love seeing things from other people's collections, mine has taken on a life of it's own. Most of the time, those things will be tossed or recycled (not in art) I just don't have the space to keep shreds and bits of papers. I might change this once my little V gets skill in wielding a glue stick, but for now I appreciate the though, but don't need it.
please no label bags, friendship books, decos or the like unless I specifically sign up for a swap of such things. I have no outlets for stuff like that and would hate to be the end point for someone's hopes and dreams!
I'm not a fan of sweet treats unless I've signed up for a swap for candy and treats. I do so infrequently.
