Wist List


Just wanted to add this to my profile.I am working 15 hour days for the last 2 weeks.It doesn't seem i will be getting any closer to done for awhile longer.If you do-not receive a swap from me then please let me know.Don't leave a rating and then say hey i forgot to tell you i didn't receive my swap.I always send my swaps and even resend.So be patient for reply messages.I do care i just cant always get on here.*

Favorite Crafts

Small Artist Quilts,Fabric Books,Altered Books,Ribbon Embroidery,Sewing,Stuffies,Japanese Crafting,Recycling Tins and Boxes and unusual containers.

Please visit my wist list.Please don't think i expect you to purchase these items.I just have it here so you can get a sense of my style and the things i like and use in my sewing and crafts.

Unfortunately i do have to add this.Mainly because of the quality of the swaps i have been getting.I donot like or appreciate used or dirty items.I would rather receive 1 nice item then a bunch of thrift store item's.It really bothers me that some people will send you low quality item's, because they know you cant rate on likes.

No i donot rate on likes.I will leave a comment though letting others know that it was low quality or just garbage.Sorry but if it looks worn out and just dirty you will get the comment.

Just to clarify i am not saying i don't like $shop stuff or it has to be expensive.If you have questions send me a message

About Me

I'm a Mixed media and fabric artist..I'm from the Ozark Mountains where we have all four seasons .I'm also a mom of six children whom i love and enjoy each day.I am blessed to get to stay home with them because i work at home.

My husband and i are Software Programing Engineers and work for a software company.Sometimes i do travel which is fantastic.I have been to Japan,Italy,France,England,Scotland,Wales,Ireland,South Africa,Spain.Almost all the states in the USA and the Caribbean.

Traveling is one of my most favorite things to do next to Art.I have had my art displayed in galleries and was recently featured in a Gallery in NYC for Woman Of Art Now And Then.I was so honored.

I am currently working with 8 other ladies in a collaboration.The medium is Fabric Books and will be published in the next two years.I am so excited about it and cant wait.

Most days will find me in my studio in the evenings.I will be hosting scrapbook and quilting classes there this winter.I'm very excited and look forward to sharing all my experiences and techniques.

At the moment I am teaching scrap booking and quilting at a local studio.I admit I am having tons of fun.

I enjoy a lot of different Art and Crafts.I really don't see the difference between the two but there you have it.I don't crochet or knit but i do buy those things to use in other areas of Art that i create.

I have so enjoyed swap-bot.I have made so many friends.The best part is choosing items for my partners and sending them out.I hope to make a new friend each time i do or maybe brighten their day.

If you have any questions about my ratings please be so kind as to send me a message.I do retain proof of shipping on all my swaps.I will be more then happy to send you a picture of it.

Hope you enjoyed reading my profile have a fantastic Artful day.

FC: You haven't even answered my private emails, so I know that something unfortunate had to have happened to you and/or your family. It is just too bad that your misfortune had to spill over into so many other peoples' lives here as well. Any kind of a message to let people know what is going on would have been much appreciated. Take care, T.

I so regret sending you the lovely Christmas Stocking swap.... I spent soooo much money and assumed that as the host you would behave properly. You should have allowed me to send to your partner since you knew all along that you were going to flake on her!

creativemisfit on Dec 4, 2007:

please answer my pm.....

befana on Nov 5, 2007:

funkychicken, just wanted to remind you that I have not received my brooch from you. If you are having a problem please email me. Look forward to hearing from you. Thanks, Befana email at [email protected]

Wondering if you ever rec'd my altered cd doll, could you please let me know? Thanks. D.

PaisleyBabe on Oct 8, 2007:

This is response to your response regarding my rating of 1. I explained to you that I didn't realize that I had not received it until 4 or so months later. At the time I was participating in a lot of swaps. I'm sorry that I didn't write you before I posted the rating. I did however mention that I would change it once I received something, which I just did. I wasn't trying to be rude or mean.
