—> Please note: I will be unable to view any mail I receive from March 12 - March 30. I promise that as soon as I am able, I will go through everything and rate swaps I get. I will also let you know if I did not get a swap by sending you a message. Thanks for your patience!


Thanks for reading my profile. I am inspired by the fabulous artwork I get in swaps to try new crafts and techniques to become a better artist myself. Thank you for the awesome art you have made - I feel very grateful to be the recipient of such wonderful work. There is a lot of talent here at swap-bot!

I finally got brave and put my art on Flickr. And I put it all out there - the good and the not-so-good. But hey, I am ok with the not-so-good - practice makes perfect and I am still learning and growing! I will try not to post anything before I mail it at least but if you want to be surprised, just don't look ahead of time just in case. :)

I think I am pretty easy to please but if you have any doubts or questions, please feel free to PM me. :=D. If you sent a swap and I did not rate you, please contact me. The only reason I would not rate you is that I have not received the swap. After a fair amount of time, I will always contact you about sending it before I give a less than 5 rating.

If I send you a swap and I don't see a rating from you in a week-10 days, I will ask if you got my swap. I am happy to resend any swap that got lost in the mail. Please contact me if you are expecting a swap from me but do not get it.

Favorite Books

Reading is one of my favorite things to do ever since I learned how. I love cozy mysteries, especially British ones. Also read some sci-fi, chick-lit, historical fiction & just plain fiction. I read whatever my mood dictates and lately I am on a YA dystopian kick and an occasional biography. And I love non-fiction animal books. I'm not into vampire, horror or paranormal books - that stuff creeps me out! And I can only take romance books (unless they're more chick-litty) in small doses (LOL). I am a member of bookcrossing (dancing-dog) and bookobsessed. I have an online wishlist I can point you to if you're interested!

Favorite Music

I like a lot of different types of music - like classical, piano music of all sorts, Scott Joplin rags, 60's folk music, the Beatles, most rock, pop & jazz, mid-eastern, Spanish, Celtic, new-age, oldies. Not too crazy about rap, hip-hop, opera, heavy metal or country but I try to be open-minded!

Favorite Movies

I love Mary Poppins and The Sound of Music. My favorite drama of all time is Schindler's List. I'm also a Disney & Pixar fan.

Favorite Television

I almost hate to admit it but I like a lot of the crazy "reality" shows on now particularly those that involve self improvement or improving people's conditions.. And this is nerdy but I love game shows. Also watch animal, home, garden, fashion, DIY & food shows frequently as well as Cops and Forensic Files.

Favorite Crafts

I like to do crafty stuff now and then and sometimes make book strings. I also play around with making jewelry. I enjoy making ATCs and appreciate anything I can use to make them. It takes me a while to get into a craft - I have tried matchboxes and whimsey jars and do keep my eye out for something new to try once in a while. Looking forward to trying twinchies, inchies and flip books soon. And on my bucket list is taking classes on drawing, painting with water colors and pottery.

About Me

I work full-time and also volunteer dog-walk at a local animal shelter (I love animals, especially dogs). I try to do some art, reading, dancing (although not much lately) and gardening in my spare time. I also love to travel and wish I had more time and money to see the world. :=D

Other Likes/Dislikes:

I love: Food: almost anything but nothing too spicy and please, no raisins. Love most coffees including flavored coffees & cappuccino-type mixes. Love most teas although I prefer black teas over green or herbal. Love fruity teas. Don't like licorice/anise tea or anything heavily cinnamon. I also love hot cider and hot chocolate.

Candy: love anything chocolate. Fond of tropical fruit flavored Lifesavers. Don't care for gummy or sour candies.

Colors: blues and greens are my favs

Girly stuff: light flowery scents but nothing too fruity, charm or beaded bracelets, kind of have an obsession with lip gloss. Have pierced ears & like small, delicate-looking earrings.

Playthings: hmmm... like jigsaw puzzles when in the mood, trivia games but can never get anyone to play with me, crossword puzzles, word games.

Would love to receive art pens, sharpies, fancy brads, pretty papers, unusual looking ribbons, embellishments to use on ATCs, stickers, small pieces of fabric, double-sided craft tape, washi tape, ATC blanks & backs, address labels.

I like things with flowers and/or dragonflies, garden or nature themes, dog-related items, dance-related items, handmade bookmarks, fun socks and miniature sizes of things (not dollhouse stuff, just little things).

Do not like: super glittery, blingy stuff, blood, guts & gory stuff, neon colors.
