My recent ratings: ..For the 1, I accident,y sent it to the wrong person. I didn't get any notification from the one who was supposed to receive if before she rated me. It was after, that I learned my mistake. I have since sent the actual receiver a new one. The recent three happened because I did not read the instructions correctly. Once I realized my mistake, I messaged the recipient and said I'd send her the correct items just as soon as I could, which I did. Now, I guess I'm just waiting to see if they get there.

I'm just wondering why so many people rate poorly of one another just for being human.

I like swapbot because I like to create little works of art. Sometimes it makes me sad to let them go but its all in the doing for me.

I have recently received some threes because I got backed up over thanksgiving. I told everyone ahead of time that I would be late and I sent them all within 2 weeks.

Also, I love to give and get extras. I think its just as fun picking out what extras I can give to a person as it is getting them from others.

We have a mud room at our house that I have turned into my craft room. I proudly display all my fellow swappers beautiful work😃


My husband and I have started practicing Buddhism. Its been an amazing experience as we learn the wisdom and meditation techniques of Buddhism. We even just recently visited a Buddhist monastery for an introductory retreat. I hope continuing to practice this religion will bring me much peace in my life as so much of us need. If anyone would like to talk to me about Buddhism or have questions about it, I would love to talk to any of you. And of course, any Buddha related item will be graciously appreciated.

Favorite Crafts

I feel like I'm someday going to try it all. I go through phases with my crafting. Right now on swapbot I am focusing on atcs and especially inchies.

I have made several furniture pieces by cutting square tiles of paper and attaching them to a table and then coating it with counter top resin. I have gone even further by adding marbles, metalic string, and other embellishments to my furniture.

The reason I am so into inchies right now is that I am tiling an entire hutch with them and then coating it with the counter top resin to make it smooth. It is turning out awesome and I hope to post pics soon. So if you have any extra inchies or want to make me some I would love to recieve them.

Wish List

I love extras! If you like sending them too, here are a few things Id love to receive:

  • ephemera

    • Favorite colors are red and brown, but I like them all

    • any kind of embellishment

  • interesting threads or strings

  • chipboard shapes

  • postage stamps to pass along

  • small silk flowers

  • brads

  • blank note cards and envelopes

  • pearls

  • stencils

  • metal charms

  • interesting ribbon

  • small clay embellishments

  • die cut shapes

  • personalized address labels

  • punches

  • book pages

  • decorative napkins

  • any good background or embellishment techniques

  • fun playing cards

PLEASE no Jesus propaganda. I am very open minded to all religions however I have enough Christianity opportunities just at my front door.

Favorite Themes

-san fransisco Giants -banjos -suns -celtic knots - music

Favorite Music

I have always loved 60"s folk music. Simon and Garfunkel are my favorite musicians. I also like Wilco and the Shins. I am always listening to ether Pandora or Rhapsody. I havnt really watched TV since I met my husband.

My New Blog

I just made myself a new blog. I've made several blogs in the past, but never kept them up. So now I have made on a free blogging site so that I dont have to pay yearly fees for something I might not use all of the time. This new blog is called "What I Made Today." I'm using it as a creative diary. Feel free to check it out if you'd like. The link is posted under my URLs.

Comment: I love this coin!! What are the tiny gold beads called in the craft department? I may have to find some of those. This coin is so cool!! Thanks for the napkins and the star confetti also!! :)
Response: They’re called micro beads. I get them on eBay. The stuff from China an auction goes for less than a $1 with free shipping. Check it out.

Comment: Update: 9/13 2018. I’m not sure what “second” card you speak of. There is no postmark date on your letter so I have no idea when this was originally sent. 9/12/2018 _ recived your ATC. its beautiful thank you. Messaged you on 8/25 to resend. It’s now sept 7 and still not received. Will change to 3 if I receive.
Response: Have you received my second card? I feel like it should have been there by now.

Comment: Hi, Heather; I'm sure this is in the mail by now (I pm'd you Aug 15 and on Aug 17 you said you'd work on it); will change this rating when it gets here.
Response: Sorry it hasn’t gotten to you by now. Life is not going my way, but be reassured, you’ll get them.
Comment: Will re-rate if I get anything

Comment: **08/15 PM- Updating this rating to a 3 since I have received your swap. Thank you very much for the constructive and thoughtful comments- much appreciated!** 08/15 AM I hate to rate a 1 in any scenario, but especially in an electronic swap. I reached out via PM on August 6th indicating, "Noticed you marked sent on Aug 1st. I don't have any comments from you on my blog. I've sorted through all notifications right in my blog and emails indicating I have new comments." This message remains unread, and you were last online more than a week ago. IF you follow through with the swap, I will re-rate to a 3.

Comment: 05/16 swap send deadline; 06/03 I sent email letting you know I never received; 06/05 you reply stating you will "resend" right away; 06/19 I send 2nd email saying I still never got anything; 06/22 you reply apologizing stating you thought you had resent but that you would do so right away; 07/10 received - With that being said, the memorydex you made is beautiful. I love the background as well as the beautiful memories you included. Also, thank you for the extras. They are really nice and usable things. I would have happily changed the rating to a 5 had you resent after the first email on 06/05. Unfortunately, I can't rate a 5 because all in all I received almost 2 months after deadline.
Response: I’m not sure what’s going on either. I’m hoping that because of the holiday, the post office got backed up or something. I am pretty sure I photographed the second one and put it on my Flickr page. I promise, I’ll keep sending them till you get one.
