About Me

PLEASE NOTE: I previously had an account(WHICH IS NOW MERGED WITH THIS ACCOUNT!!) @almakopey - on here a few years ago and had a lot of problems which led to me flaking (not on purpose) on a lot of people. - 22 ones - Which I'm doing my best to fix now. If I owe you a swap I have sent you a pm. If you did not get the pm, please let me know. Also, if you angeled one of these swaps.. let me know what I can do for you..(maybe a profile surprise or something??)

Hi I'm Cassandra.. 26 now!! My hubby and I live in Oklahoma.. we bought a house after he got out of the Army. Our house is rather sparse but we hope to remodel one day. Right now I try to decorate with what we have. One day it will be beautiful! I'm a full time student but I still make time to have a life and craft!

I love to sew, work on art & junk journals, hand embroider (still learning), carve stamps (not great at it yet.. but I'm trying), take pictures, garden, shop at thrift stores, bake goodies for my hubby, and re-purpose & create new things out of old/used things.

I try to reuse packaging.. with being in so many swaps.. it's better for me.. the world.. :) and my pocket!

My favorite colors mainly consist of: silver, aqua, turquoise, darker purples and black.

Favorite Books

Twilight Series, Sookie Stackhouse (where True Blood comes from) Series, Any Sewing/Crafting Books, Any GREEN(environment/sustainable living/energy saving/gardening) Books, Photography Books

Favorite Crafts

Comment: Very disappointing; I was so looking forward to this swap. 3/3/11 update: Thank you for the cute pincushion. I just wish I hadn't had to track you down, 2 years later, to get it. I tried to change this rating to a 3 but the system won't let me change the rating??? 5/16/11 update: Rating changed to a 3 for the extreme lateness.
Response: Sent 3/28/11 - Tracking number: 03102010000012829588--- Thank you for changing this for me! :)
Comment: Wow! What a wonderful journal. I can see how much work and time has gone into creating it. Thank you so much ....I am very proud to own it.
Comment: Please accept my apology for the late rating. And thank you for a great swap! I love the fat quarters for sewing and crafting, and ESPECIALLY the Gnome cards :0) Love, love, love them!

Comment: Yay. Your package finally made it to me! I really can't understand why it took so long but I'm glad it didn't get lost. The pirate owl is really extra cute =) Thanks a lot!!
Comment: It's well over a month since you sent me a pm asking if I recieved this swap. I told you I had not and you replied that it must have gotten lost and you would resend. I am still waiting. I will rerate to a 3 when I recieve the swap.

PinkLotus rated for Gnome Stuffy Revisited!! on Apr 4, 2011
Comment: Thank you for the stitched gnome and extras. I hope you get the rest of your ratings straightened out soon. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ update - it's tacky to regift and claim someone else's creation as your own.. you sent me what @krista311 sent you in this same swap.. and now you want to insist she doesn't know what she herself made.. I call b.s. on your claims. I am not changing the rating b/c you technically met the swap requirements but in a VERY UNSCRUPULOUS way. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I have nothing to hide and I WELCOME you to contact her.. I don't see that changing much..
Response: I did not send you what @krista311 made. I sent her a message about this situation with you. We'll see what she says. Since you are not getting the picture apparently. Thanks for accusing me of things I didn't even do. ----Are you going to change what you said since you were wrong? I posted print screens of the messages @krista311 sent me on my flickr.. so that EVERYONE can read them and see that you were wrong in accusing me.
Comment: Still waiting.....A 3/31/11 I received a lovely package for this swap. Thank you. I read your profile and don't know what cause the 20 flakes, You say it was not your fault...I have no way of knowing, but since your DH is serving the country, and you put great effort into making this right, I am rating a 5.
Response: Sent 3/28/11 - Tracking number: 03102010000012829601
Comment: Thank you for such a sweet, adorable bunny matchbox! The presentation was lovely as well and the extras are perfect and much appreciated. It was worth a two year wait :)
Response: I'm so glad you liked everything!! :) Sorry you had to wait so long to receive your swap. Thank you for the 5 & the heart too!! :) -Sent 3/28/11 - Tracking number: 03102010000012829618
Comment: I got him! It was a nice treat after being delayed for a couple hours at the airport :) And sorry about all the confusion with the delay of getting back to you about the swap.

Hi cassandra.

The missing junk journal showed up at my place. I would like to resend it! I emailed you a message. Get back to me please.



PinkLotus on May 25, 2011:

I did not block you since I was wrong - I blocked you b/c I wanted you to stop contacting me.. and in the PF I made note on the questionable swappers thread about you about what I was incorrect about and what you did indeed try to pass of as your own. Thanks.

ilovetubby on May 16, 2011:

It's nice to know that @cajunhillbilly has blocked me since she was wrong about the Gnome Stuffy Revisited swap. I have proof of the messages @krista311 sent me on my flickr page.. so if anyone wants to read them, feel free. I did NOT send @cajunhillbilly the gnome I received for the swap. I made her my own.. and I proved her wrong and now she has blocked me so I can't contact her. Go figure.

LittleSaint on May 4, 2011:

In regards to your comments on @cajunhillbilly 's profile, Yes i know there is such a thing called Flickr - that's how you got found out!

Your partner did not know that I made that I made the pouch, in fact she originally had written in the comments left for you, something about the quality of YOUR work. (those comments have since been changed) but if she is commenting on YOUR work then that leads me to believe that she had no idea , until I contacted her, that you didn't make it.

Anyway I don't care if you want to re-gift things, but at least be responsible and give credit where credit is due. The end!

lorepuckett on Mar 31, 2011:
