A couple of low ratings explained: In April 2018 of this year my grandmother unexpectedly passed away, two weeks before I was to visit (we are in different cities). It obviously broke my heart but the guilt at not booking a trip to see her a little sooner kept eating away at me. It still does. After she passed away I owed 4 swaps and did not follow through so was given 1's. I completely deserved them. About six weeks ago I came across a bunch of stuff I had received from different members of swap bot and realized how much I missed it and how I wanted to send out the swaps I owed. I contacted the members and arranged to make it up to them and I did. I followed through and sent what needed to be sent. Because it took me so long to send them I currently have (I did have 4 # 1's but have been working to repair my ratings and making progress) 1 #3 and 1 #1 . The #1 rating will hopefully change to a #3 once they receive it. Thanks
Love getting mail and sending stuff out. It's like Christmas all year around!
I am a single mom of four. I teach mixed media art to children ages 6-12 years old and work at a community centre. I love writing and have published a couple of books. I won first prize for one of my poems a few years ago and had one of my stories published in Chicken Soup for the Soul. I also love art journaling and photography. I have 3 cats and a dog. Art journaling is my favorite.
I've been keeping a journal since I was 13 years old so its been over 3 decades. I have quite the collection now!
I like variety when it comes to books.
Instead of naming the books, I will name some of the authors I like: *Stephen King *L.M. Montgomery *Charlotte Gray *Patricia Cornwell *Margaret Atwood *Sylvia Plath *Charles Dickens *J.K. Rowling *James Patterson
And I am sure there are others I just can't think of right at this moment.
Some of my fav movies are: *Stand by Me *Fried Green Tomatoes *A Christmas Carol *The Colour Purple *Gremlins *Anne of Green Gables *Goonies *One Magic Christmas *Scrooged (with Bill Murray) *Stand by Me * It (both versions)
I like mostly crime shows such as Dateline, Law & Order and Criminal Minds. I watch TV while I am crocheting, writing in my journal or folding laundry. I don't usually sit down and watch a specific show.
My absolute favourite is art journaling. I have been doing it a few years now. I especially like washi tape and things I find lying around, missing playing cards, using markers etc. I also put in stuff that I come across during my journey. For example if I go to a movie I will paste my ticket stub in my journal. Or if I get a really cool birthday card. So my journals say a lot about me. Some people say I suffer from "Stationary Sickness" and I am okay with that. That's the truth!
I also like painting and drawing and photography. I have had a couple of my own solo art shows and have sold over a dozen pieces but have just been into art the last couple years. Although I haven't created any new pieces in almost a year. I've been busy raising the kids, focusing on my writing and keeping balance using my art journal.
I also do a bit of crocheting. Mostly just scarves and baby blankets.
*I collect Cabbage Patch Kids from 1983-1985 *Care Bears *Strawberry Shortcake *Owls, anchors, turtles *Bookmarkers *Harry Potter (Harry, Hagrid, Dobby) *Anchors, owls, turtles *Vintage Looking items and items with lace *Used Stamps (to put in my art journal) *Stickers *Maps (for art journal) **current absolute fav is anything vintage

solid coloured notecards (I prefer ones with an image/print)
plastic coloured tape (I guess its fake washi?)
*I don't have any allergies
