b4ustamp is changing its name to Cahos' Chaos (Mixed Media Madness)
I am a Christian, mom of 3 (adopted), loving husband of 19 yrs. My Hobbies include Quilting, paper crafts and Napkins. I like ATC's, mini albums, mixed media, Art Journaling, sketching, Hat Pins and TAGS.
The MAJORITY of my ATC Swaps use the Graphics 45 Paper Collection. We are almost through the collection. Their first collection came out in 2007. With all the different papers in each collection, it can go on for a very long time. But the older ones are getting hard to find.
I collect ATC's, TAGS, Unique Napkins and Hat pins from everywhere. I am also a Mixed Media Concierge. I love all the FALL colors, or should I say AUTUMN Colors. Which then explains my favorite Holiday of the year other than Christmas, is Thanksgiving.
I like to collect ribbon, lace, beads & charms for my Hat Pins, Tim Holtz Products, TAGs and ATC's. My favorite JOURNALING Teachers are Tamara Laporte, Effy Wild, Ayala Art, Studio Tangie and Samie Harding, just to name a few. My favorite YouTube artists/designers are Tim Coffey, Tim Holtz, Katherine from Life on the Scrap Beach, Marion Smith, Laura Denison, Journal Artista, etc. But there are a lot of very artsy/talented people out there that I enjoy Watching their videos.
I am currently involved in Art Abandonment and Random Acts of Art, both found on Facebook. It is where you make art and then abandon it for someone to find. There are thousands participating in sharing their art around the world. I am loving it. I have recently started a monthly ATC swap where you make 2 ATC's, 1 for your swap partner and one to abandon.
You can find me under B4UStamp at Blogspot, Youtube, Facebook, and Twitter.Hope to see you in some swaps and God Bless.
ATTN TEABAG SWAP: I am allergic to all "berries" (strawberries, rasberries, cherries, etc.) Basically anything that ends with "erry" or "erries". Also I am allergic to perfumes!
I am all "G" Rated and Christian. So please keep with that in our swaps. So birds, Exotic Animals, Buildings, Movie stars, Hot Air Balloons, Oriental, and so on. Any questions, please, please, please email me. Thank you.
I am on disability, and have a fixed income. I do my best to send a little something with my ATC's. It is not much, so if you can't use it, please feel free to pass it on. Just don't take it personal and rate me low because of it. I do read all my partners profiles and try to create accordingly. I spend at least an hour on each project, and they are not just thrown together. So alot of time, effort and respect goes into all my swaps. ALSO...I have fibromyalgia, carpel tunnel and arthritis, but I do I try to write a note with all my swaps. IF, I have more than 1 partner, I will copy my letter and send those out. I am sorry if it seems impersonal, but at least I am trying, again, nothing personal.
I WILL NORMALLY RATE a 5. I do try to rate fairly, and according to how much love is put into it. I always put love and effort into my projects, keeping my recipient in mind at all times. You WILL get rated LOW if it is vulger, satanic, obscene, or just inappropriate in any way. If you read my profile, you will know to keep it clean.
I PROMISE TO ALWAYS RATE, AND NEVER FLAKE. I ALSO MARK AS "SENT" AFTER IT HAS BEEN PLACED IN THE MAILBOX.
P.S. Nothing personal, but I try NOT to use stickers, and I will pass them on for others to use or share. So if you do not mind, I preferred you find another home to send them too. Thank you so very much for your understanding. God Bless.
