I just spent an hour and a half adding the finishing touches and when I clicked save apparently the interwebs ate it...ugh. So, some other time I will try it again.
I found the most adorable miniature rolodex holder and cards, the cards are like 2"x3". If you're willing to make a decorated rolo for me (I'll send you the blank) please message me. In return I can make ATCs, twinchies, notecards, rolos, or some other small craft. Thanks!!
If you haven't received a swap from me please contact me before rating a 1. I always send out my swaps so if it hasn't reached you I'm happy to resend.
2019Jan02 - My mail issues have returned to normal and all except one swap from early December has been received, that person is still looking for it but of course I will resend if needed. If you're missing a swap or rating from me please send me a message.
I am a mother, wife, and an engineer who is owned by 2 rescue pups.
My son is 18 years old and just started college in the fall of 2018. Though he's a commuter, he's rarely home unless he's hungry, stinky or needs to drop off the latest pile of laundry ;-) It's been a huge adjustment for me as I have spent the last 18 years dedicated to him and now I don't know what to do with my mind and so much free time. I craft and swap a lot more as I really don't want to be one of those moms, I just can't help thinking the worst has happened to him when I don't hear from him - what am I going to do when he permanently moves out? cries
2018 marks my 10th year here on swap-bot! Wow! I have been through many ups and downs in 10 years and it amazes me that I still have a 5.00 rating. I am not perfect, I have had to send late in the past and deserved a handful of 3 ratings. Fortunately the people I swapped with were very gracious and understanding. Those are my people :-) I am not one to take a magnifying glass to postmarks, swapping is about having fun and I'd much rather have a swap that you enjoyed creating rather than rushed together because of a deadline. So I do ask that you give me the same courtesy I have given when in the same situation: if you're having difficulty completing a swap on time just be honest and communicate with me BEFORE the deadline so we can work it out.
I prefer to only swap what I have signed up to swap. Please, please, please don't send me anymore random extras, I am overloaded! Especially don't send me any extras to make up for a crappy swap, how irritating!
For altered rolos, all of my holders are spinners so if possible please put your info on the back accordingly.
For ATCs, I store most of mine in a binder so please do not send cards with objects that extend far outside of the 2.5x3.5 dimension. If it can fit easily in an ATC sleeve, then it's good!
I am primarily a papercrafter but also dabble in sewing and upcycling. I enjoy making handmade cards, ATCs, altered rolos, twinchies, art journal pages, slams and decos.
I have been having a lot of fun watching and learning from Tim Holtz. His color palette and grungy style is perfect for me. I am just now working through the Creative Chemistry classes and am glad I waited as I have a lot more Ranger products (and time!) now than when the classes were first released.
I am co-founder of a new group called Exploring Tim Holtz Products so if you're a fan be sure to check it out!
I'm not really swapping postcards on here much these days but these are my interests:
My absolute favorite type of postcards are maps!! You can find my entire collection here. I'd love if you could find one that I don't have :)
If you'd like to do a private trade for postcards, you can find my offers here which I try to keep updated but have slacked off in the past couple of years. Some of the more expensive or particular themed cards I will only trade for similar cards, but feel free to send me a message if you see something you like!
