About Me

IMG

The recent addition of several more ones to my profile is due to the merging of two accounts.

I have been in Contact with two of the four and am in the process of making up those swaps. One will go out at the end of July 2017 the other may take a bit longer as it is 50 pages.

The more recent three is because I joined a swap that required a colour which I thought I had but I didn't and my partner rated as she felt was right. I have since resent but have heard nothing back from her.

I spend countless hours in front of my computer and rejoined swap-bot after 5 years to give myself something to do besides read or play solitaire all day

IMG

A few years ago I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Dysthmia. The dysthmia I knew about for a long time; depression, especially one that never goes away completely even after 40 odd years is pretty obvious to even the dumbest bunny. The fibro was unexpected I just figured the pain was part of being over 50 and obese.

img

The two of them together mean I have my good days and my bad ones. So please, please check with me before you rate me down as I do not do my best work on my bad days and will gladly redo something if it isn't pleasing to you.

Talk to Me

I am looking forward to swapping with you!

Requests to my partners

A few requests

  1. Please send email swaps to my swap-bot mail because I do not check my mail reader every day but I do check the swap-bot one several times a day.

  2. If you haven't received something within six weeks of me sending it out please contact me and I will resend. Please do not rate a three or one until you have talked to me. Stuff happens and I am usually willing to resend

  3. I will sometimes forget to rate for deco's and other e-swaps please send swap-bot mail to remind me if it has been more than 2 weeks

Swap Specifics

1) I always try to send on time but sometimes I simply can't. I will let you know if this has happened and would appreciate if you did the same

2) I like home-made things and will try to send something I have made rather than something I have bought. The only exception to this would be scavenger hunts or small parcels

3) Post cards Naked or not doesn't matter to me

4) ATC's Made by you or passed along it doesn't matter to me.

5) Stamps cancelled or new it doesn't matter to me. Canadian and US uncancelled are greatly appreciated

I only ask that they be in good condition.

Favorite Crafts

I have made everything from Atc's to Zines. I currently do a lot of Pocket Pages and Flipbooks and new bits and pieces to help with them are always welcome

I still do ATC's as well so papers and add ons are also welcome

I love hand-made things especially head scarves and re-usable bags. But anything home-made will make my day!

I love getting stickers, all kinds! I used to have a sticker outlet nearby I could go to to get all kinds of them but they went out of business a number of years ago and my sticker supply is nearly gone

I play around with patchwork, embroidery and other needlework so new threads, fat quarters, buttons, bows and beads are always welcome

I knit and sew but do not use machines so thread, needles, patterns and yarns are great.

I read on my computer and am always collecting new ebooks. If you got some I might be interested in put them on a USB key and send them my way.

I have started to experiment with fairy gardens, dioramas and other miniature things. I am always on the lookout for things to use in them. Even vendors

Dislikes

Please do not send:

strong scents - as they tend to give me a headache.

Butterfly Deco; Butterflies from our Country Grizzles Skipper

With its characteristic chequered black-and-white pattern this butterfly is quite distinctive although old, faded individuals can be mistaken for the dingy skipper or the burnet companion moth.

There are three North American subspecies, and others, including the nominate subspecies, in the Old World. Subspecies wyandot (W.H. Edwards) flies in the northeastern U.S., but apparently does not reach Canada (some workers now treat wyandot as a distinct species). Subspecies freija, described from Labrador, is found in most of the Canadian range from Labrador to Yukon, and subspecies loki flies in the Rocky Mountains from Colorado to British Columbia.

Viceroy

This middle-sized (wingspan: 53 to 81 mm) butterfly is a mimic of the larger Monarch (Danaus plexippus). The upperside is dark orange, with bold black lines on the veins on both wings. There is a row of white spots in the wide black wing borders and in a black line that cuts diagonally across the forewing tip. There is also a postmedian black line that runs across the veins on the hindwing. The underside is similar, but paler.

The Viceroy is widespread in Canada. It is resident from Nova Scotia to Quebec and Ontario, north to James Bay, and in the Prairie Provinces to the northern borders. There are records from Fort Smith and Hay River in the Northwest Territories. It was formerly resident in the southern interior of British Columbia, but was last recorded there at Lillooet in 1930 (Guppy et al., 1994).

Sleepy Orange

The deep orange wing colour with the broad black border on the hindwing makes this medium-sized (wingspan: 30 to 48 mm) species very distinct. The underside is yellow with dark brown markings.

Range: Because this is only a rare stray in Canada, records for this common southern U.S. species are few and scattered. Based on a specimen in the Canadian National Collection in Ottawa, it has been reported by many authors as having been found once at Point Pelee and at Ottawa, in 1882. However, this was based on misinterpretations of early collection labels. There are only four valid Canadian records, three from southwestern Ontario one from Quetico Provincial Park in northwestern Ontario.

Update to your comment on the 3 rating UPDATE I will change my rating to a 5 when received. No problem

EF Butterfly Profile Deco

Swallowtail butterflies are large, colorful butterflies in the family Papilionidae, and include over 550 species. Though the majority are tropical, members of the family inhabit every continent except Antarctica. The family includes the largest butterflies in the world, the birdwing butterflies of the genus Ornithoptera.

alt text]

Lycaenidae is the second-largest family of butterflies (behind Nymphalidae, brush-footed butterflies), with over 6,000 species worldwide,[1] whose members are also called gossamer-winged butterflies. They constitute about 30% of the known butterfly species. The family is traditionally divided into the subfamilies of the blues (Polyommatinae), the coppers (Lycaeninae), the hairstreaks (Theclinae) and the harvesters (Miletinae). Adults are small, under 5 cm usually, and brightly coloured, sometimes with a metallic gloss. Larvae are often flattened rather than cylindrical, with glands that may produce secretions that attract and subdue ants. Their cuticles tend to be thickened. Some larvae are capable of producing vibrations and low sounds that are transmitted through the substrates they inhabit. They use these sounds to communicate with ants.[2][3] Adult individuals often have hairy antenna-like tails complete with black and white annulated (ringed) appearance. Many species also have a spot at the base of the tail and some turn around upon landing to confuse potential predators from recognizing the true head orientation. This causes predators to approach from the true head end resulting in early visual detection.[4] alt text]

The Sandia hairstreak (Callophrys mcfarlandi) is a species of butterfly native to North America.[2][3] A relatively rare butterfly with a limited range,[4] it was discovered in La Cueva Canyon, Albuquerque, in spring of 1958, by Noel McFarland, then a student at the University of Kansas,[5][6] and described the following year.[7][8][9] The Sandia hairstreak was made one of the state insects of New Mexico in a 2002 bill approved the following year.[4][7][10] C. mcfarlandi is a relatively small butterfly with tailless wings that span 2.9–3.2 cm (1 1⁄8 to 1 1⁄4 inches). The wings of females are generally reddish-brown on the dorsal side with a narrow border of black around the edge. Males are typically brown. The underside of the wings of both sexes is usually greenish-yellow on the undersides with a postmedian line bordered with black near the base.[2][3] This species exhibits a certain amount of polymorphism, making the phenotype of some individuals significantly different from that described here[11] but according to one simple description "it is small and gold and green in color and it lives in and among beargrass plants, where its pink, lavender and white caterpillars eat beargrass flowers, making the butterfly and its caterpillar easy to identify."[7] alt text]
