I fell behind with ATCS a few months ago.. I've made those right. I want to get back into swapping, but am only doing postcards right now. There have been a lot of deaths & I was depressed as be.. my water dragon, Splash. Don't know what happened.... On the 2nd of June, my aunt Virginia. She had cancer to return & her kidneys failed.... On the 7th, my uncle Gerald... His bowels ruptured & went into gangren.. then his organs failed.... On the 12th, my beloved kitty, Punk.... Apparently he had a genetic back problem, & his back gave out & paralyzed him.... There was nothing to help him, but being put to sleep... I held him while the shot relaxed him.... He gave me a final purr, like he was telling me it was okay & he loved me.... & this has nearly killed me. He was my 1st born, w/o me birthing him... We had 8 great yrs together... No where near long enough, though.... Ugh... So, people, I've been going thru a lot, & I apologize. I haven't checked messages or anything. Or sent messAges. I'm working on that.
(Zane, My beloved special needs bearded dragon is in my profile picture. He deserves recognition. He was abused severely. To the point where he's now crippled. He was rescued though, & is the sweetest lizard known to man. He trusted me immediately & was not scared at all. Even after all the beatings & throwings he'd received, he still wanted love & attention from humans. It breaks my heart. If you see something bad happening to animals, stop it & report it. Or find someone who can stop it. No animal deserves this. Every night now, he gets wrapped in his special baby blanket & rocked to sleep. I SWEAR he smiles at me. I swear it! If you have a little extra time, & want an amazing animal - adopt a special needs ones. You can make all the difference in the world to a special little guy or girl. All Zane needed was his Mama & some extra attention like fingerfeeding & massaged. He's the happiest lizard around now! And will soon be staring in a children's program at the local library & having his story told. :) MAKE A DIFFERENCE. YOU CAN DO IT.)
I AM NOOOOT A BAD SWAPPER. I HAVE SWAPPED & PENPALLED SINCE I WAS 10 OR 11YRS OLD. I CANNOT HELP THE HAND I HAVE BEEN DEALT LATELY. CHECK OUT MY RATINGS. YOU'LL SEE THIS IS NOT MY NORM. YRS AGO, WE HAD A FAMILY EMERGENCY WHICH CAUSED SOME OF THE BAD RATINGS... IN 2011/2012 ANOTHER CAME UP & I DID NOT GET TO CRAFT AS MY HATEFUL, IDIOT FATHER WAS DYING WITH CANCER... (LONG STORY, SHORT VERSION: HE WAS VERY ABUSIVE, BUT HAD THANKFULLY BEEN ABSENT FOR 13 YRS).... I'VE JUST GOTTEN BACK INTO SWAPPING & PENPALLING. MY CRAFTING IS SLOWLY COMING BACK TO ME. THANKS FOR READING.
BEFORE YOU RATE ME BADLY - SEND ME A MESSAGE TO TELL ME YOU HAVEN'T RECEIVED YOUR MAIL. I SEND EVERY SWAP I'M INVOLVED IN & DO NOT FLAKE. in the past i've had family problems & were slow to send some swaps, though. & some were never received, but WERE sent. my 5 1's were sent the 2nd time, & they either haven't logged in in a coon's age, or they're being rude & won't change it.
ALLERGIES!!!!!! I DO have allergies, & thought I might should mention this now... I'm very allergic to SILICONE! It causes severe itching & rashing... My skin swells where it touches. PLEASSSSSSE don't send me any silicone things. I looove those funky bracelets, & would love to wear them, but its not possible. They were also fun to chew, before I knew what made my mouth & tongue swell... Lol. Please don't send me silicone things. Please. I'm also allergic to IB Profen, & Sulfa/Sulfer (which has killed me once. :().. but I don't think I need to worry about those here. Lol. But thought the Silicone was worth mentioning. Thanks, yall.

some of the highlights of my childhood were practical jokes... my favourite was putting saran wrap/plastic wrap across the toilet bowl. XD
I've died before. I'm allergic to sulfa & the Dr didn't know it. Neither did i. My heart rate hit 240 & I went away from this world, on the ambulance. They got me back, & I was in cardiac icu for 2 days at age 22. I now have to take 3 heart pills a day to keep my heart rythem straight, due to the Dr screwing up. >. .O

My personal dog - Sidney asher mcwrinkles was sold as a puggle & turned out to be a boxer/bully mix. He's fawn with blue eyes & is my baby. He's about 9wks now. I had to feed him on a bottle, as he was sold at 3 or 4 wks old as a 7 wk old puggle, & had no clue was food was. o_o

Rumi & hopper geckie - my married leopard geckos! They're an old breeder pair who have been together for a long time. Rumi, the wife, is definitely the boss, & only eats crickets. Lol. Hopper is laidback & only eats mealworms.
Mr. Pickles - the emperor scorpion. He's so funny! He loves to tunnel under the dirt & loves his crickets. He's really calm & is nocturnal (comes out at night time, if you don't know the word).
i love animals, people! i always keep food in the car for hungry strays. think about it, if you love animals, too. :) some animals are so mistreated, and ran off just for being hungry. if you can, take one home. or go to a shelter, and adopt one. they'll be your bestestestest friend in the world!
i'm always looking for new snail mail penpals that write long, chatty letters, and want long term friendship. it's upsetting to connect with someone, and then they disappear on you. so, if you'd like a forever friend, send me a message!
Also, I've gotten back into trading ATCS & welcome private trades!
if you'd like to trade w/me, let me know. i'm also looking for pressed/elongated/smooshed/smushed pennies. :D

I have to drop you from Beginner's Cross Stitch at this time. You have a very old unsent swap on your dashboard.
Hello! Welcome to All Things Halloween!
I just want to go on record to say that I love swapping with Kerrimoo. She is a reliable swapper so give her a chance. We all have lives and some people on swap-bot get their panties in a bunch over nothing. Some just are mean and won't re-rate. If a swap doesn't show up, then COMMUNICATE and give a chance to make it right. Afterall, these are GIFTS, really! C'mon! Oh, and I am fully convinced the post office sometimes eats swaps!
'nuff said! -=EO=-
Thank you for joining my first swap!
Don't fret. I'm about to do a Devils Rejects swap in bLackListed. :) Plus I'll be repeating some of the other swaps too. :D
You are AMAZING. We should be best friends. I'm at work now but expect a lengthy PM when I'm off :D xoxo
has anyone else on here had problems w/really rude & mean spirited swappers on here? :( it's discouraging, to be honest. but i love atc's too much to leave. :P shakes fist at the meanies you won't chase me off THAT easily...
I'm hosting a celebrity zombie ATC swap right now...you know you want to join. Don't lie girl, I know you do! zombiekittie xXx
Will you be continuing the Around the World ATC series? I hope so. Thanks!
