FEBRUARY 26 2013: I have taken a rather large step back from swap-bot. I have needed to deal with life as we know it, and unfortunately I still don't see myself having the amount of time that I used to, to spend with all of you wonderful crafters.
I have dealt with the Flaking issues to the best of my ability, and to those of you in my Tea is Love Group, I am so sorry that this has happened to you. If anything else comes up, I will help when am able. :)
I may return at some point in the future, joining Swap-Bot was one of the best things that I could have ever done, and have made some wonderful friends. Thanks to all!
I am getting married in just over a year, I now have MY OWN engagement ring! It may not be all that to everyone else, but for me, its PERFECT. The hall has been booked, the menu chosen, and the rest of the plans have been started! I am totally in the WEDDING ZONE. lol
I am a Starbucks addict.
I am a Tea addict.
I am a CTV addict.
I think of baking and cooking as therapy.
I ♥ Chocolate...
My favourite colours are Green, Purple and Blue.
I adore Earth tones!
I wear Pajamas 95% of the time!
I am NOW a Non-Smoker! (1 year as of May 13th!) Never felt better!
I frequent a Ladies Gym 2 - 3 times a week
I Do Not have a Facebook account! The one I had made had been hacked into so many times I just gave up..! :(
I have now BOUGHT my Wedding Dress! (If you wanna see a pic PM me and I will send you the linky!)
I LOVE my Copic Markers! This is going to be a bad thing for Hubby...LOL
One More Thing I would like to ADD....
If there is a time where you do not receive a Swap or Tag from me, please be respectful and give me (and other swappers) the benefit of the doubt. This means that before rating a 3 or a 1 attempt to contact your partner FIRST, and not give your rating first "to let them know". Most swappers will do their best to rectify what is in their control. The Postal system is not always in the best working order, ESPECIALLY during the holiday season. So please DO keep this in mind. Treat and Message others the way you want and expect to be treated and messaged. :)
At the moment I am sticking with Swaps for Tea, Handmade Cards and Scrapbooking Supplies, small flat swaps only
There are afew specific crafts that I stick to, but I am always willing and interested to try different things!
- Handmade Cards
-Paper Crafts I really like to make bookmarks, postcards, recipe cards, gift tags, envies etc...anything to jazz up the place.
I am now a seasoned Paper Craft Instructor at Michael's Craft Store. Its a fun place to work, and share my passion for crafting.
I also have the wish to learn how to quilt! I want to become a better sewer, and I thought that this might be a way to start!
My husband to be is a painter. Not for a living. Just as a hobby. He does acrylic on canvas. He is quite good at it! You wouldn't think that a construction worker had the soft side to paint. He also loves to sketch.
Jay has a wonderful imagination, he is working on a set of novels at the moment as well, I love my Artistic man! ^^
We have also been working on a plan to hopefully make my Crafty Hobbies into a business. Alot of people love scrapbooking, but have no time to do it themselves! Plus you always get a warmer feeling when you get a handmade card for your birthday...! ^^
UPDATE: I have now started on my 5th Scrapbook for my personal photographs. I have also started my collection of Wedding Papers/Embellishments etc..for when I do my album(s) in about a year and half. :)
As I said earlier I am quite the crafter. My Craft room almost takes up half the living room, plus the kitchen and spills off into my bedroom... lol.
I love music, can't go a day with out listening to something or I would literally die. I listen to just about anything, but at the moment I am very into Pitt-Bull. I love Rihanna too! But my favourite of all time would have to be Billy Joel, Bryan Adams and Savage Garden.
TV shows at the moment are Criminal Minds, CSI NY, Unforgettable, CSI, NCIS, Castle, NCIS:LA, Big Bang Theory and Once Upon a Time. I am also watching the entire series of the original animated XMEN :) I finished the Anime version first...lol. Hubby has also gotten me hooked on DR. WHO...lol.
I am VERY much looking forward to the release of OZ! ^^
I love to cook. Hubby is spoiled rotten, as he gets homemade baking to take to work with him...lol. He is also now the owner of his own construction siding business. His old boss sold him the company. :)
I try and do as much cooking at home as I possibly can. But it seems that I have to start making more salads..lol
Ok so, I have looked around on a few profiles and seen that everyone has some kind of a wishlist, so I thought that I would post one.
Cute Stamped Images, all ready for me just to sit down and colour! (The bigger ones would be preferred! :D)
Wedding themed Paper/Cardstock/Embellishments/Stickers.
Please Note: If you are sending me paper scraps/cardstock/patterned paper, please send something that you would be willing to receive! I recently had someone send me torn pieces of paper and tiny bits that were useless...so please please! Be mindful of what you are sending in that nature. Thank you!!
I was really sad that I had to make one of these lists....but alas...
The two swaps that I was Flaked on Originally have been rectified. Each swapper was rated a 3.
@cassiecards - has been found to be a flaker, and has disappointed two girls in the Secret Sister Swap Games that I run. If she is a member of your group, ban her.
@nlgrudis - User is suspended, and has not been online for more than a month. I was flaked on for a WTA prize dating back to April.
@dukono - User is suspened also, and flaked me for the same April WTA game.
@Lozzabee - Flaked on sending out a prize for a "Lucky Post" game that I won in February. Suspended.
Ok, so sadly I have been going through all of my "SENT" swaps, and alot of them I have not Archived yet because I have not received a rating. This being said...I decided to make a list...
@Nathalie for Christmas Card - International (Contacted many times, still nothing) UPDATE: I was finally contacted 2 YEARS later, with a 1 rating. No message, just a rating and comment "letting me know" that she had not received her Xmas Card. This rating has since been removed after I sent multiple messages, and is now being resolved. :)
@bananasock for December Tea Pot Swap (Partially suspended)
@Tajsa for Tea+Notecard swap
@rootbear for Mail Art for Beginners 2 (Has not been online since Oct.6/2011, and has no ratings.)
@VintageDreams for Charmed/Witchy Mail Art (Partially suspended)
More to be added I'm sure...
I feel I need a spot to keep track of my tags so far, and to make sure that people know that I have not forgotten about them!! ^^
Tags OWED: -Technically I still have things owed to me, but I believe that it has been more than 4 months, not to stress over it, everyone is human.
Tags OWING: -As far as I know, I have sent everything that I owe out.
