About Me

Thank you, ph.

Community Liaison for a family care home, serving six seniors. See Radbourne Manor for the best place on earth for seniors who are unable to live alone at home.

Mom to the most awesome 8 year old kid on the planet! and Wife to Mr. Perfect! I have been a scrapbooker since 1995, and love to work on scrapbooks (although I haven't had much time to do that lately). I love crafting of all kinds. My favorite swap I was ever involved in was a year long Handmade Christmas Ornament Swap. Each month we sent high quality handmade Christmas ornaments (that followed a monthly theme--angels, Santa, snowmen, etc) to 9 other ladies) It was like having Christmas every month when the boxes arrived! I also am just getting into quilting (my residents are teaching me!), so I would love to get involved in some fabric swaps.

Swaps and Ratings.

I try to always rate when I receive a swap. If I have not rated you please message me to find out if I've let it slip through the cracks or if I just didn't get it.

If a swap from me does not get to your door, please message me and let me know. I WILL RE-SEND, because I have NEVER not sent a swap.

Comment: It is very unusual for me to rate down, but you were the hostess on this swap and there were just too many conflicting stories. You marked sent, but I didn't get it. When I contacted you in early May you discovered it was still at your house and said you would send right away. At that point you quit logging into Swap-bot. Again, I received nothing. So, I sent you an email. You agreed to resend. That was about a month ago and I've still not received anything. I'm sure you must have a life situation and pray things will get better for you. I will be pleased to upgrade this rating at anytime in the future should I receive a treasure box from you.
Comment: Have not gotten these yet- I will re-rate if they ever arrive.
Comment: It kills me to do this, but I haven't received to date, nor have I heard back from you after attempted contact. I will gladly re-rate should they arrive! :(
Comment: Thanks for the envies. I loved your assortment of ribbons too!

Comment: What a lovely journal - I love it - I can see why you didn't want to part with it.
Response: Thank you for your patience and your generous five. I do appreciate this gift of a five when I should have had a three (at most!) :)

Looks like some heavy duty stuff must have hit you hard. Been there done that. Had to take a couple of years off myself, but if you ever make it back to swapbot, I sure hope to hear from you. You hosted one of my all time favorite swaps, that has given birth to an annual tradition. Hugs!

You "are" a special angel. Thank you so much for the wonderful package I received today for the Recycled Calendar swap. I'm overwhelmed with all the nice things you sent, and impressed how you were able to make matching sets of note cards, with matching envies, bookmarks, gift tags and ATC backgrounds from what appears to be one calendar? I really appreciate you, my angel.

Thank you so much for the "name" snowflakes! I let the older ones open their own and they got a HUGE kick out of them. They are all hanging on the big glass door in our kitchen. We're hoping they bring us some real snow. Thanks again!!

And now, since I forgot to leave my original comment, without further ado... thank (s alot) for causing another addiction. I LOVED the recycled calendar swap, and spent the New Year weekend recycling calendars. !!! Everyone thought I was crazy 'til they started seeing the results and by Sunday night, there were five of us armpit deep in calendar scraps and notecards. We went through SIXTEEN glue sticks and NINE calendars.

midwestkiwi on Jan 3, 2011:

Hey! I came to leave a comment about the recycled calendars swap and noticed it's your swap-bot anniversary. Happy 1 year SB anniversary!
