About Me

6/13/12 I have sent all and rated all received. Please let me know if there is anything missing. Also, if anyone knows what else I might need to do to get reinstated, please let me know.

UPDATE 6/12/12: I once again have housing (and therefore an address). Still catching up. I am not signing up for anything until I have. Note: I always make sure that I have the postage ready before I sign up for a swap. I believe that tomorrow's outgoing mail will have me caught up - so, if you don't receive items soon, please let me know. I so love swapping with people. Thank you for understanding a VERY difficult situation for me - please understand that when you are living in a car and eating at the soup kitchen, a postcard or ATC you owe someone is not a top priority. Also, I WILL rate all received. Hopefully, then I will be back in good standing.

NOTE: I fell behind on my swapping because I was hospitalized and I am currently living in a car. I will complete all swaps and rate (please continuing sending to same address - my sister's house) as soon as I can. I will get to the library at least once a week to use the computer. I'm sorry for the delay in things that this has caused, but am hopeful that everyone will understand. Thanks, Stephanie

Mom to 2 girls - 20 (majoring in Medical Assistant program at Central Maine Community College) and 17 (attending High Point University in NC in the fall - double majoring in Elementary Education and Theater), and one furbaby a 2yr old cat (Abby).

I am unfortunately currently unemployed (& looking), but it does allow me time to craft and read so I'm taking advantage of that while I can.

I love animals - cats, bunnies, frogs, squirrels, giraffe, lemurs, tigers, elephants, owls, birds, dragonflies, butterflies.

Colors I enjoy: rust, cranberry, sage green, turquoise/teal, purple, red

Dislikes: cutsie stuff, overuse of pastels, sticker slapping, flakers

I have been swapping/collecting postcards for decades. I especially enjoy architecture, landscapes, and wild animals. I often send lighthouses, mountain, or Maine wildlife cards.

I love to see all the creative things that people make, and to share some of my ideas as well. Getting swap mail always brings a smile to my face & I hope the same is true for the receivers of my snail mail.

I love going to lawn sales/thrift stores to find lttle bits of things to use for ATCs, etc (old book pages, pics, paper, fabric, ribbon, buttons, game pieces, etc). And, I've been known to find a "treasure" just laying on the ground. Its nice to mix up the stash a bit. I also like to share some of my finds.

Please contact me if for some reason you do not receive a swap or a rating from me. I am dedicated to following through on both.

Favorite Crafts

I love to craft - especially if I can recycle something into something beautiful and/or useful.

I knit, crochet, create ATCs, inchies and journal pages, do some hand sewing, and altering various things.

Favorite Books

I am also an avid reader (mysteries, non-fiction, historical fiction, some occult fiction), and enjoy writing (so writing prompts are fun).

Some authors I enjoy include: Dan Brown, Stuart Woods, Tess Gerritsen, James Patterson, John Connolly, Robert Parker, Heather Graham

Favorite Television

Criminal Minds, NCIS, CNN, Today Show, Unforgettable, CSI

you have been removed from Scraptopia due to suspension.

kayler00 on Jun 14, 2012:

It's not just the flaking, it's also the fact that you have two profiles.

crafts2ndchance on Jun 12, 2012:

I do not consider myself a Flaker! I would never purposely not send something. I have had some hard times that I have tried to make every attempt to make up to any swappers I owe. Surely Swap-Botters can understand??? It seems like everyone is in such a hurry to be critical - ugh!

TC on Jun 10, 2012:

aka @squintgrad , flaker.

crafts2ndchance on May 18, 2012:

I hope I've caught up with everyone via emails and notes posts. Thank you all for the concern & I will follow-up on everything I have promised (though sadly late on many). I will try to log on weekly and keep swaps to a minimum for now. Thanks again. Special thanks to DeAnna!!

dalbright on May 16, 2012:

Hi, could you please assign partners for your swap: US only Postcard swap #4 (Free Card)? The mailing is due in two-days!! Much appreciated, thanks!!

DeAnnaVarela on May 11, 2012:

PS I'm willing to "Angel" any swaps she may owe someone due to her absence. Just PM me DeAnnaVarela or email me at [email protected]

DeAnnaVarela on May 11, 2012:

I will be reposting ATC with Postage Stamp(s) on May 13. I'm sure something is wrong because she has good ratings and has been great at communicating with me on a semi-regular basis. I contacted the admin and noone can take over her swaps as the coordinator...they will just expire within a few days of partners not being assigned. Hope this helps, and more importantly, I hope that she and her loved ones are okay.

chilady61 on May 11, 2012:

I hope it is not the case i mentioned in my last post cause she is in a lot of swaps ... wow wee alot of hostesses might have to cover those if she does not come back .

chilady61 on May 11, 2012:

I hope she is not one of those people who just comes on here and then leaves silently you know ? I sure hope not cause I might have to angle a swap she joined up for now . I hope she is okay though . I have snet her several emails all unanswered. Yep makes me worry too .
