Favorite Crafts

ATC's- have been swapping for the past 2 years internationally on Yahoo specific groups before Swap-bot.

Love rubber stamping on my ATCs and hand made cards.. love Stampington collections, have all Alice in wonderland stamps by Tweety Jill Always love new stamping techniques and so much not a sticker slapping girl.

Card making... not a sticker girl, just love cutting up paper, stamping, collage, painting, drawing and inking. Very hooked on miniature card making, colouring with copic markers, Cretacolor colour pencils

Zentangles- only a rookie on this one! I have an A6 diary and Micron pens ever at my side and i explore new zentangle designs. Just adore the official Zentangle site and the official zentangle card it is delicious to draw on. I love putting zentangles on my cards. sometimes get brave and make coloured zentangles, but prefer black and white. Patchwork...I have been a patchworker and quilter for 27 years. These days I particularly like working with 5" charm squares. I love hand piecing and also machine piecing but have decided quilting is for the birds (will commission my backlog of quilts to a professional machine quilter! Currently hand piecing kite charm square quilt from Beth Donaldson's Charm Quilts' - a beautiful pattern shape with so much potential.

Love altered art, collages, pastels, drawing with graphite pencils and coloured pencils New to Dotees but am hooked. They are just so cute, even tho' I am not usually into cute.

Favorite Music

There is nothing nicer than listening to classical music whilst creating any art or craft for that matter.

Also love jazz, new world, rock and roll, some pop.

Taken up piano lessons again after 40 something years and loving it.

Jane Austen classics and hooked on Bonnet dramas of a certain calibre.

Comment: I love the Phlox ATC! This flower reminds me of my mom's flower garden out on the farm. She had beautiful flowers and the Phlox was one of many!!! Thanks bunches!!!! 3+ years and finally getting a rating to you! I do feel bad and I am embarrassed about it also. I have been on an emotional roller coaster and I am hoping that it has finally came to an end. Life is not always fair. But we will survive! A while back, I promised myself to make right all the people and ATC's I have neglected to complete. It has been bugging me, as this has never been how I usually handle things. A few days late possibly, but always completed. I am so sorry about this and I do hope that this long awaited rating, will bring your paperwork to a 100% close at for anything I still owe you. If there is something else that you are missing from me, please let me know asap. Again ... Sorry!!!

Thanks also for the extras you included-the wonderful stamps for my stamp album and the other little bits and pieces-it was very nice of you to send again since I hadn't gotten the first-thanks for sharing and happy swapping
Response: Glaf you liked her. I was getting worried that you hadn't received the first, so wanted to make sure you got this one. Normally the post is good, but I have had a few strays lately. Thanks for the heart.

Hello Chelle! I'm your partner for Any Postcard swap and since, as I can see, you don't have any postcard preferences on your profile, you will really get any postcard! LOL I always like to send something people added in their likes lists but still, I hope you'll like the one I'll pick for you! Happy swapping!
