A little about me...

My favorite crafts...

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE paper...from those security envelopes you get in the mail to foreign newspapers to handmade papers to plain (or decorated) paper sacks. I love paper. I also love art supplies to play with on my paper...paint, rubber stamps, pens, glitter, basically, anything that will adhere in some way to paper. So, my favorite crafts lean toward paper crafting. I've tried my hand at ATCs and post cards and greeting cards and I love them all. Envelopes...I love envelopes and little enclosure cards. Envelopes made out of old calendar pages or other things like that are favorites. Tiny little envelopes and cards are great for enclosures in my letters and swaps.

I love glitter. I love giving it, and I love receiving it, but I won't force it on you if you don't like it. I can't say I won't feel sorry for you, though, and your unsparkly existence. ;)

Allergy alerts...

•Allergies for Thee and Me•

I am extremely allergic to cigarette smoke. I have asthma and cigarette smoke just shuts down my ability to breathe. Please, if you smoke, I would appreciate efforts to dispel the odor as much as you possibly can. Thank you so much.

I live with two dogs and a cat, all foundlings. I do my best to keep pet hair out of my swaps, but I just want everyone to be aware I live with furry beasties.

Enjoyments...

•Favorite Pastimes•

♥ Receiving/Sending letters ♥ Going for nature walks ♥ Spending time outside ♥ Playing with art supplies

•Some of my favorite music videos•

The Hobbit - Misty Mountains song ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Annie Lennox "Into the West" The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Matt Venuti...Hang Water ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Gary Stadler, Wendy Rule "Dance of the Wild Faeries" ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Enya "Wild Child" ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Josh Groban "Mi Mancherai" ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Ozzy Osbourne, "Dreamer" ♥ ♥ ♥

Symphony of Science, "We Are All Connected" ♥ ♥ ♥

Symphony of Science, "A Glorious Dawn" ♥ ♥ ♥

The opening credits for "Oz, The Great and Powerful" ♥ ♥ ♥

Ratings and hearts...

Just to make it known throughout the land, I absolutely hate to rate anything other than a 5. I do. However, if my swap partner has earned a rating other than a 5, I will give it. I just don't like to one little bit.

Some things to let you know about why I would rate lower than a 5:

~If you're going to be late, please just let me know! I am very understanding and will give you extra time. Please just send a pm. I'm a friendly gooseberry. :)

~If I contact you about a swap being late (and you haven't written to me first) please respond! Ignoring my messages and not contacting me about being late in the first place will result in a 3, whenever it does show up. I don't like to give out 3's, so let's just keep in contact, ok? :)

~If I feel it fair to give a 3 or a 1, harassing me about it will not result in my changing the rating (unless the swap is sent and I change the 1. Other than that, sending me message after message about it and being mean about it won't help at all.) We should have stayed in contact before it came to that!

~I love hearts and give them freely, but I do mean them sincerely when I give them. I'm just very easy to please. :)

Thank you for reading this and let's have fun! :)

Comment: Thank you for the cheery HM PC! I do have a project on a back burner that can def. use the bird stamps! Magnolia's are just coming out here now and bushes ate looking more green than brown... We may have survived another winter! lol Go well...
Response: Yay! I'm so glad that it made it to you this time! (the first time it was returned to me due to a post office mistake, for those who are reading this and I sent it out again the next day.) I'm glad you like it and that you can use the stamps. :) I tried to make it as "birdy" as possible. Have a lovely spring! and thank you for the prompt rating and heart. :)

Comment: Elizabeth, thanks for the lovely spring ATC and your handwritten note. They definitely brightened up my day. It's already summer here in India, so I miss spring too!
Response: I'm so glad it made it there, safe and sound. :) I'm also so glad your day was brightened by what I sent. :) Thank you for the prompt rating and heart, and I do wish spring could have stayed with you a little longer, but say hello to summer for me. :)

Comment: Your creation is adorable! Thank you for bringing that bit of sunshine into my day today, and thank you for your lovely note. I, too, am eager for the warmer temps so that I can put our vegetables and herbs out on the balcony. Better yet, I'm hoping to soon see that old familiar sign of home that says, "Welcome to Florida." Happy Crafting and Swapping!
Response: I'm so glad you like it! It was fun to create. :) Enjoy the warmer temperatures and the Springtime! Happy Crafting and Swapping to you, too. :) Also, thank you for the prompt rating and heart. :)

I'm very sorry about your cat. It's very hard to part with the little souls, even if it isn't forever.
