im Carolyn

I am married,to a wonderful man , we live in MO with 7 cats and two Oscars (fish) we have 2 grown children I love all kinds of crafts especially altered art,ATC's and misc paper crafts I collect masks,faries,dragons,odd and unusual items, I love nature and all things from it , I like to use them in my crafts when I can. My favorite colors are purple and green. My craft room has two green walls and 2 purple walls. I accented it with gold and black. it looks very magical and inviting. I love all things magick. real magick and things like Harry Potter , Ergon, and such. the rest of our home is decorated in pretty much whatever we see that we like we have no real color scheme. My husband and I both collect dragons, so the house has dragons thru out along with a splash of faries. we love all animals and our 7 cats think they run the house. and for the most part they do. I like to make things from junk or anything that i can recycle I don't like to add to the landfill problem and if its plastic it will be there forever so i try to find a way to reuse or recycle everything

Comment: Never sent. Not cool. You suck!
Comment: You claim that you're sending out these swaps that you flaked on but I sure haven't seen anything. I think you suck and it is lame to claim about problems and then months and months and months and ages later you still haven't sent anything or even bothered to send a message.
sandyponey rated for ~Easy Pick 4 Swap~ on Jul 2, 2011
Comment: I am so sorry to have to rate a '1', and will gladly raise that if anything is ever received. I have sent multiple messages of concern to you, not just because of the swap I haven't received from you, but out of worry for you as well as the offer of an ear and shoulder should you need to vent, etc. But haven't heard word one from you. I do hope things are okay.
TryshaH81 rated for Journal of Shadows on Jun 27, 2011
Comment: Sent PM on June 23rd regarding this swap. You were on June 26th but didn't even take time to read or respond. I will gladly rerate you IF I receive this swap from you. I understand RL takes advantage over swapping but if you have time to log on you could atleast respond to PMs.
islandgirl rated for art journal supply swap on Jun 26, 2011
Comment: Carolyn, this just hurts my feelings. Though you responded to my first email, you have not actually sent any of the 8 swaps ahead of this one since that response. And yet, you are still blogging, and doing art for that purpose. Those of us who journal, often do so as art therapy...I hope you dig deep to make good on your promises.
shanksrl rated for scrapbook supply swap on Jun 26, 2011
Comment: I'm sorry to give you a one but I still haven't heard back from you if you received my package. I know things can happen that take priority over swapping, it would just be nice to know if you needed more time to put it together. As the host and the only other person in this swap you never contacted me to let me know that it would be late. I'm more than willing to change this rating once I get something,
Comment: I really hate to do this, I do know that you have alot going on and I know RL takes over swaps, But that being said You have only contacted me after I contacted you, even though I have asked you to keep me updated. You as the host changed the swap date and yet you have not sent or even gave me a idea when you would. This was a very costly swap going in and I knew that and everyone including you got their swap. Except for me. I feel as though i have got taken by the host. I will be posting this on my profile and will never allow you in my swaps or will I even sign up for a swap with you in it. I think I have been reasonable and understanding in this matter and if I EVer do get this swap I will change the rating.

Thanks for making good on the Junk Oracle swap. I will take you off my flaker list.

NorthernBorder on Oct 20, 2011:

best wishes to you, I hope things settle down soon

islandgirl on Aug 13, 2011:

You are online often, but the only changes I see to your owed swaps is when you change the deadlines for them! The swap you owe me is sometimes listed 6th, sometimes 9th...why bother? Just send them out...I can only imagine this is stressful to you as well!

ayates on Jul 28, 2011:

I'm patiently waiting for you to rate for Fairy Charm Swap and American Swappers Scavenger Hunt - I know you have rec'd. I put soo much time, effort & money into both, at least you could say thank you.
