Hi. Since discovering Swap-bot I have enjoyed sharing swaps with others. I'm interested in anything 'Arty' and creative, particularly ATC's and Mail-art in the form of envelopes.
I live in a suburb of Perth in Western Australia a good place to be. I've travelled to many places and my favourite part of West Aust is the North West and Central Australia The colours there of the blue sky and red earth I find very inspiring. Kids are grown up and 'flown the coupe' and I live with my male companion, Ernie, a 4.2kg Chihuahua cross ! got his name because he looks like a Dingo ( a minature one at that )
UPDATE: Devastated by the unexpected loss of my little Ernie Dec 28 2018 cardiac arrest while undergoing investigations at the vet.
I am very content with my life.
I love colour. Everyone has some talent so I'd like to see what you can do .... painting, drawing (I can't), collage, computer...Please "some" effort - abit more than cut out magazine picture stuck on card.
I'm an animal lover...addicted to ATC's and I believe in angels.
My favourite foods are Chocolate, Pizza , Fish and Chips, not necessarily in that order and not at the same time.
Please do not send me anything resembling porn. Tasteful semi nudity acceptable, anything else OK .........extra ATC, decorated envelope, It's nice to receive the surprise extras but I don't expect them ( I'm aware of postal costs, especially with International mail ) ** extras do not guarantee a heart ** ..... please NO MORE LITTLE BITS OF PAPER. ( eg ATC backgrounds)..... I love getting something in the mail box so I look forward to receiving my swaps and look for effort in the swap... not just a piece of printed paper with embellishments stuck on. I like to receive work that reflects the personality of the creator.... saying that, I do take into consideration your swapping/art experience. But I wouldn't say no to used postage stamps
I send and rate promptly and would like the same consideration and always contact my partners when I have sent their swap. Please let me know if you don't receive from me in a reasonable time. *I have had swaps go astray * or if you have a problem doing your swap for me by the send by date.
I see what alot of members put in their requests - What I'd like most of all if anyone has any to spare is ........time ! (Not enough hrs in my day or days in my week) and a fairy godmother to come and do all the things I don't get done so I can spend more time on 'arty, creative things'......... No ? I didn't think I'd get too many offers on these
Update : still waiting for the above mentioned so have had to make a resolution to give up one day a week of 'arting' to do housework !!
My recently aquired interest is zines. I find them "mind challenging" to create.
ATCs - a recent trend appears to be to extend the edges with lace, embellishments etc. Please, if making an ATC for me I prefer them to be the normal size as I like to store them in those plastic pockets in a file. Extended tops OK
