I am attempting to catch up and regain a + swapping status, so that I may swap again. The swaps listed that I am "currently in" are ones that I have contacted past partners for their addresses, either because I have found that they may not have arrived or I've received a 1 for the swap. All of these swaps are from May-August of 2011, when I had several medical issues, myself and w/in my family, to deal with.
I am not a liar or a thief and I am trying to make resolution to the best of my knowledge and abilities. I never intended not to send and am in a better place in my life now than I was back then.
Thanks to those who have shown me kindness in this attempt and for partners willing to re-rate me...

Due to allergies, taste & simple preference, I would rather NOT receive ANY: scented, bath, body or dollar store (thrift stores are okay) items. I'm not into Hello Kitty, Kawaii, loose glitter, confetti, FBs, seeds, beads, stickers (unless alphabet), yarn, coffee or tea. I prefer no mint, lemon, watermelon, coconut or cinnamon scents or flavors. I'm not a fan of pink and light shades of colors or metallic yellow gold. I am mildly sensitive to pet fur/hair and to smoke.
COLORs (of the moment): Greens and blues, especially w/ browns. Black and white. Orange. Metallic silver and grey. Monochromatic. Arsty. Funky combos. 70s.
My current FAVE themes (almost automatic heart getters): giraffe, turtles, trees, bees, negative space and quotes...
Other faves: abstract, distressed, children (especially vintage), doodles, cupcakes, technique specific, beach, ocean... fruits, veggies, rubber stamped and dragonflies.
I'm not that fond of overly bulky, thick or overly embellished because I store my ATCs in 3 ring binders. I love layers, rubber stamping and technique and thats what is reflected back in most of what create and send out.
Images needed/preferred for RUBBER STAMPED images: cute monkeys, jungle animals, princesses, House Mouse, Penny Black, Stamping Up or Close to My Heart (because I have few sets of those) backgrounds, esp woodgrain, frogs, cows, ducks, words, numbers, journal boxes, flowers, snowmen, hearts, clocks, faces, children, Halloween, artsy. - - I have enough butterflies!
I am human. I am forgetful. I am creative. I am chaotically organized. I usually send closer to the due date and catch up on ratings over the weekends. If I'm late, I communicate when I know I can then get it out. I always send quality and tend to give the benefit of the doubt. I have a life outside of Swap-Bot that takes priority. I play here for fun and promise to like you until you give me a reason not to and then I probably still will. I love to send out mail almost as much as receiving it. I've been flaked on and un-rated for swaps that I've put my heart into. I've gotten rid of 1s. but I always send and I always rate. Create with your your heart and you'll do just great.
