ATTENTION....PET PEEVE ALERT !!
I love getting deminsional ATC's,
BUT... most of those that come through REGULAR mail are damaged.The beads are falling off,crystals are crushed,3-D paper items are flattened. Sometimes the items get snagged in the sorter and rip the envelope. It is a shame to get such beautiful cards with your hard work,time and care wasted.
I don't mind flat ATCs,if you do not want to put a little padding in the envies and let it go as NON- MACHINABLE. Just a heads up to what happens to a lot of 3-D ATCs.Thanks.
I will never flake,on the other hand the postal service is un-reliable. So if you have not received a swap from me,it is becase:
I will ALWAYS RATE.
ONCE IN A GREAT WHILE MIGHT NEED A PROMPT.
I really worry sometimes that if people do not respond that they may be ill or something tragic happened,so i try not to get to upset if I am flaked on.
So let me know if you did not receive a swap in a reasonable amount of time so I can get another to you,also if the postal service mangled things,let me know and I will replace it.Also,for any reason that you are dissatisfied let me know and I will see if I can fix it to both our satisfaction.
I am married(35 years this coming April 2013)Two children,a daughter that is 32 and not interested in starting a family. I would really like some grandchildren. I have a son,25 and his goal is to pretty much have a family,but ready made. He likes much older women with children all ready.
. (I was a professsional florst for 25 years, then I worked part time delivering meals on wheels.) On Nov. 5th,2012, I went back into the floral industry as a designer and Jane of all in a small shop here in town. Did not think I would do this ever again,but here I am!!!!
I enjoy nature and all living creatures and I LOVE to bird watch in my yard. I feed the little greedy things. The winter birds are here,but i have a problem with an ever growing large flock of sparows,the are eating all the good stuff and my pretty birds get the left overs, if any.I have 2 weenie dogs,a solid black one called Pancho,a red(now a lot of white because she is 14 years)her name is Honey. A boston terrier,when we got him his name was already Cash. When he barks he sounds like he has a sore throat because of his short snout. . Container gardening is my thing now what with the dogs.I am growing dill right now and will put in onions soon. . I am not a "talkative" person,esp. when it. comes to myself. So if you have questions,ask me and I will tell you . I am a Born Again Southern Baptist,no, I am not a stereo-type that you might have seen on T.V. or the movies.I don't hollar or scream and neither does my pastor or the congregation.I won't "talk" religion unless you specificaly ask me about it,such as how one becomes saved through Christ.
PLEASE NO FOOD ITEMS OR STRONG SMELLING SOAPS,CANDLES OR PERFUMES.
DISLIKES.....I don't like colors that have been muddied.Like when you mix red and blue and then get purple,don't keep mixing untill it looks like mud.That can happen to any colors (paint) that are over mixed.
REALLY CAN'T STAND THESE: ....Disney,strawberry shortcake ,carebears or any bears in general,barbies,smurfs, and other such cartoons that are overly sweet,cutesey-poo or "doe-eyed" NO ANIMAE!!!!....
LIKES.... Edgie art,out of the box thinking,I love nature and ALL ANIMALS,esp. birds of all types. Insects are great even the "gruesome" ones. Vintage anything,steampunk,goofy looking stuff.
COLORS,not really fussy about colors,BUT,these are my favorites in no particular order.
red, yellow blue
burgandy,orange purple,green,matte gold.(fall colors)
shades of chocolate brown,fawn and shades of blue
dark bright pinks.
hot orange, hot pink, neon lime
AS FOR THEMES FOR ATCS......, I like...nature,humorous(play on words) ,glitter,bling and glitz,vintage is great,too.Handdrawn,painted,digital,collaged. All ATCs=delite!!! A lot of different styles, they all have their own merit.Steampunk,One cutsey thing I do ADORE...house mouse. .Handmade,painted, crafted backgrounds are great on ATCs. AS LONG IT IS MORE THAN STICKERS OR ANY IMAGE SLAPPED ON PAPER,art is created by You.Any effort at decorating,coloring blinging,painting,ribbons is greatly appreciated by me.
Comedies,drama,action, classic horror.(no blood and guts) I always like the cheesy Sat. afternoon T.V. movies.Godzilla type movies. Suspense,sci-fi,esp, sci-fi.
The Help,Titanic,It's a wonderful Life,The Thorn Birds,The Men in Black series.
Big Bang Theray,A Gifted Man,Fringe, Bones. Love ME-TV. I don't know if that is available everywhere,but it shows the oldie shows,like Donna Reed,DickVan Dyke, Bonanza,Star Trek the original,etc. I DO NOT CARE FOR THE REALITIE SHOWS.
Arthors....Sara Gruen,Lisa See,Robin Cook,Ken Follette,James Patterson,early Dean Koontz,Early Stephen King,Robert James Waller, Janet Evonovitch,along those lines. I like to read the dictionary. Yep! I do. I love words and play on words.
I like it all....... classical,Jazz,christian,country,classic rock.I am not glued to an i-pod or anything like that.Anything,as long as it is not rap or obscene.
I have tried soap making,candlemaking,beading jewelry,embroidery,crochette,knitting,sewing,painting with oils,gardening. But paper crafts are my fav,esp. collage on ATC's.
I see so much asked for on wish lists. Do people really send all those things to each other?
In that case,I would like... .
(GOLD ,DIAMONDS, CASH ,CADILLACS---- JUST KIDDING DON'T GET UPTIGHT). Used (cancelled) postage stamps from around the world. Anything zettiology, rubber stamps,images,small brass crowns,(1/4 -1/2 inch) Oh,odd and ends of small bits and peices of ribbon,string,yarn,just enough for an ATC..Now, that was painless,right?
