Hi all. I am tying up and rectifying my loose ends/very current 1's. Please message me before making any assumptions. I do not want to create uneccassary drama. A "1" is not always a "1".
USPS is becoming more unreliable and unpredictable, especially as we are in the midst of the holiday season. I cannot afford to send every swap with tracking. Once this is done, I am taking a break from swapbot until the USPS regains control. Once something is dropped off at the post office it is out of my control, such as, Swaps not being dated on the date when I drop them off at the post office or not making to its destination within a specific time frame. This stuff is out of my control. The USPS is causing me too much anxiety. I am on the edge of my seat waiting for my recipient to receive their swap. I have over 700 #5 ratings. I am not unreliable or a "flaker". I joined this site to make some new friends and share crafts, postcards, notecards, etc. I am not going to let the USPS stop me from swapping permanantly. Just until they are more solid. I like to send smiles across the miles:-). I don't like drama or unnecessary frustration. I hope to soon pick up where I left off and continue sending smiles across the miles:-)
November 18, 2020-SWAPS AND RATINGS ****Hi to all my swapbot friends and future swappers. My ratings will be completely up to date by Friday. I have a few that I do not have ratings for on my end. This is a red flag for me to be sure you received. I will be sending out messages to the ones I am missing. If you received, please let me know that, as the actual rating is not important to me. What is important is that you received your swap. If you have not received due to a mail snapu, I will re-send ASAP. We are soon done with 2020 and I am looking forward to 2021. I am very excited to start the new year with a clean slate in alot areas of my life, swapbot being one of them. When ALL is up to date for me on swapbot, I will be deleting the below information. Looking forward to future swaps and making new friends. I have already found a few gems on swapbot and for that, I am thankful💕.
CATCHING UP ON RATINGS: I am from Hopkins/Minneapolis, MN. During the time I was with my mom during her multiple strokes to the end of my moms life journey, my city was burning down. We had my mom creamated and waited until we were able to have a small out of state service for her. On July 5th, shortly after my moms service, my sister passed away unexpectedly. I have returned home to Minneapolis, MN. I have been working on getting caught up on my ratings and only have a few remaining to rate. PLEASE if you have not received a swap from me and you have given a little time, please message me ASAP and I will re-send and make it right.
ON A SIDE NOTE: our mail was delayed for a few days with no delivery and some mail has been completely lost. The Minneapolis Post office that was was burnt down and looted during the riots was a main hub for Minneapolis mail. The second post office that was burnt down and looted was a main artery also. Because of this, in return, I will message you if I dont receive a swap. It is most likely way far delayed or lost. I will not rate without being in touch with you. I would appreciate the same courtesy. Thank you.****
Hi:-) I am a mixed media, steampunk, grungy, shabby chic with a vintage twist sort of gal. I enjoy anything by Ranger. This includes Dylusions and Tim Holtz products. I also like Finnabar products and love to work with any type of mixed mediums including Gesso's. On the Whimsical/mystical side of things, I like unicorns, fairies,mermaids and dragons. I like Alice In wonderland ephemra (old style by Lewis Carrol), I usually order bits and pieces of ephemera on Etsy.....I enjoy making cards, working in my mixed media journal, altered art as well as making pocket letters and ATC cards;-) I like vintage colors in teal, kraft stock brown, reds, etc. I like using pastels on winter themes, easter and summer crafts. On the flip side I enjoy working with jewel tones;-) Neons. (neons have a time and a place in my opinion; and that is the 80's). However, i will work with neons on an appropriate theme; -) I'm an equal opportunity crafter. Lol. Purple and teal are my favorite colors. I am a non-smoker, non-smoker swaps please. :-). On a side note, I have a GG TN-A4 planner ;-)
A little bit about my swap history: I participate regularly in a handful of swap groups on facebook. I enjoy swapping and getting to know new people and enjoy sending and receiving original crafts. I enjoy getting new ideas from swaps. Everybody has their own unique creative style. Over the eight years I have been swapping, I have made many friends and look forward to making more:-) Happy crafting!
I enjoy mostly rock, but like country as well. I do three music festivals every summer with my husband of 25 years. I enjoy rockfest, country fest and Winstock music festival. I also go to concerts in general here and there.
I am married, 25 years, a mother of two children, a boy and a girl, ages 20 & 21. I am a nurse practitioner, as I enjoy working with and helping people. My most recent job has been working with kids with Autism and PDD. I have worked in cardiology, endocrinology, psychiatry and general ER over the past 22 years.
I don't do much reading these days. In the past I have enjoyed reading Stephen King, John Grisham and the Harry Potter series.
Midnight In Paris, Serendipity, ELF
My husband and I like to pick different series from netflix. We are currently watching Schitt$ Creek.
Pocket letters, ATC'S, Mixed media, Cards,Junk Journals, Altered objects, altered books
I am always on the look for a new crafty obsession :-) :-) :-)
