About Me

I Pledge to Rate

If I haven't rated you, it is because I have NOT received your swap. I always rate as soon as I receive it.

I love to give hearts, but please know that extras do not necessarily get a heart with your rating. Thoughtfulness, timeliness in sending, taking your time and doing your best on a swap are just a few things that I pay attention to when deciding whether or not to give a heart.

Please note

I do NOT participate in drama. Period. Thank you.

My name is Anita and I'm 43 years old.

I've always been a very crafty kind of person and enjoy knitting, crocheting, drawing & handlettering. I also love Bullet Journaling and am about to purchase my very first Traveler's Notebook.

Also, I hate writing "About Me"s ;o) LoL

Favorite Music

I really have a very eclectic taste in music, all depending on my mood. I love everything from country to hard rock, classical to classic rock, pop...R&B...jazz....new age...I've not heard much that I don't enjoy listening to on some level, but these days I find myself listening mostly to praise & worship.

Favorite Books

When I was growing up I read so much that my mom would get mad at me because I spent so much time in my room reading.

Now a days I don't get much time to sit and read, but when I do my favorites are the Bible, art/craft technique, instruction and inspiration books and the occasional self-help book.

Likes and Don't Likes

Please don't take this list as me "telling" anyone what to send me. It is intended to give my swap partners ideas as to what I like and enjoy...and for those swappers that prefer to have a list to go by.

Now, onto the list (in no particular order...)

  • DRAGONFLIES!!!....and butterflies...and ladybugs...hehehe

  • I am a very colorful person and love most colors. My absolute favorites are aqua, scarlet red and pink....each individually, or together.

  • Yarn

  • Any journal that has sewn binding (for durability). Spiral bound is good too. Graphed, lined or unlined...it's all good!

  • pens & markers

*unused American postage stamps are always welcome and much appreciated.

  • art and craft technique, instruction and inspiration books

  • Deco/Washi tape!!!

  • Hello Kitty

Don't really care for:

*Really dark art

*Dotee dolls

*Anything that looks like it was just slapped together - - I personally put alot of thought and effort into my swaps and it would be nice if whatever you send me at least looks like you spent some time on it and made it with care.

Aumonae rated for AAMA - Winter Theme Mail Art on Nov 18, 2013
Comment: Anytime I get you as a mail art swap partner I swoon just a little 'cause I know I'll be getting your awesome artwork! And Nightmare Before Christmas is my FAVORITE, so this one also is in a frame on my wall in the craft room!!! Wish I could give you much more than one heart :)
Response: I had so much fun with that one! I was a little worried that I wouldn't get it just right, but I got the thumbs-up from my youngest (who also LOVES Nightmare Before Christmas) so I was hoping that you would enjoy it too. I'm glad you do! Thank you so much for your super kind words, your rating and the heart! ♥
Aumonae rated for AAMA - Fall Theme Mail Art on Nov 8, 2013
Comment: Okay... this time I am sure this is your rating ;) The postcard you drew is absolutely amazing!! I wish I had a hundredth of your ability to make something so cool because I would just sit all day and draw, draw, draw and never do anything else... ever! Did you use copic markers? I want to buy some markers that blend like the ones you used. Thank you sooooooo much for sharing with me. This is going into a little frame to hang right by my desk so I can look at it and get inspired!!! Wish I could give you like 100 or more hearts for each hand stroke of creativity! I would gladly give you them all :)
Response: Oh girl, you ROCK! Thank you so much for your generous compliments and awesome rating. You made my night! I do often use Copic markers, but I didn't on your post card. I actually used watercolors. =) I do highly recommend Copics though! ...and you are most welcome! I am honored that you like it so much that you want to frame it! ♥♥♥

Comment: How talented are you. Everything you make just shines with uniqueness and beauty! I admired your crochet mandala on your flickr and then did the happy dance when I saw I was your partner! :) Thank you so much for the gorgeous mandala, I love the colors! It's perfect. And I ADORE the dolphin frame you made me! I know exactly where it's going :) Thank you so much for such a thoughtful, beautiful package of goodies! You truly rock! :)
Response: Thank you so much Deb for your wonderfully kind compliment! I am thrilled that you are so happy with everything!! I was so excited when I saw that you were my partner for this swap. =o) You are extremely welcome my friend! ♥
Comment: Anita! I loved EVERYTHING! The Ami Moose is so precious. Moose are my favorite animal, so I def love this. Too cute! & it's small, so it doesn't take up too much room. Which is a plus for my 'craft' room. =P I also loved both drawings you did for me, as you already know. Thank you so much! I cannot wait to show my mother both of them. She will love the Simon ornament! I also appreciate you sending me my Etsy fav of the Alice In Wonderland postcards. I love those and plan on framing them!
Response: I am so happy that you loved everything! You are very welcome! Thanks for the rating and heart. ♥

God Bless you for the awesome Bloodhound pc you sent me when I was down and out. It is fantastic! God has really given you some beautiful talent. I showed it to my Bloodhound "BlueDog" and he loved it too.
