It has been YEARS since I've been on Swap Bot- but I am needing to exercise those creative muscles that haven't been used in a while.
New interests- ATCs and inchies, I struggle with "art" vs. craft, and find that I am less intimidated/self-critical and enjoy artistic ventures on a small scale.
I am loving the wide variety of ATCs I have received. I look forward to displaying my favorites when I can finally return to my office. Please share any ideas of clever ways to display them!
Recently moved back to the Midwest, bought my first house (mid-century modern that needs some TLC). Empty nester, patiently waiting for grandkids. Have a geriatric dog and three cats. We feed the squirrels at the front window for the cats' entertainment (and ours).
Many career shifts - genetic/neuroscience research > academia > healthcare administration > quality assurance for healthcare software. Quite unintended journey.
If I am hosting a swap, I will angel for it. I don't specify this in the swap descriptions, but do not hesitate to contact me if you did not receive your swap item.
For single ATC swaps I usually lower the rating limit and allow new, unrated swappers to give people a chance that need it, knowing that I am able to angel a single ATC quickly, even for multiple people. For more time intensive swaps I raise the rating limit so that it is less likely I will need to angel for multiple people.
I do screen regardless of rating limits to see what most recent history has been.
If you have concerns about any swap I am hosting, please message me! I am happy to try to resolve things, or get needed feedback.

Really I don't need extras- just getting swaps and getting inspired by other's creativity is such a delight! But if you really want to add something, this is my simple wishlist-.
