Unfortunately, the prices are SO high here in the US for mailing Internationally, I will be doing so minimally :(
I ♥ Ernie and I love Snail Mail!
If you have not received something from me, then one of the following has happened:
So, PLEASE contact me if you don't receive something from me. I am honest and want all my recipients to be happy!
I live in Virginia, U.S.A. I am a later-in-life bloomed artist. I never thought I had an artistic bone in my body until I started scrapbooking, then realized that I do have a knack for it. Now I gone from that, to Smash/ Junk Journals, to ATC making, to many other Paper Crafts. I love all these projects and am up for private swaps, if you'd like.
If you want to host a swap in the Paper on Steroids group, let me know and I will make you an Officer!
PLEASE DO NOT SEND ME HOLIDAY OR NATIONALISTIC ITEMS. BECAUSE I really HATE to have to throw things out because they are against my beliefs/ values. PLEASE READ MY DISLIKES BELOW, THANK YOU SO MUCH!
I pledge to ALWAYS check profiles before sending even when not specified, because I would want the same done for me!!
I almost ALWAYS reuse packaging, so please expect this and know that I don't mind at all receiving recycled packaging!
I am a mother to five kids with only one left in the nest.
I have been told once or twice that I am a Magpie
