m a 50- something full time homemaker, married to the love of my life for 39 years. We raised and homeschooled two children, both grown and on their own. We have two grandchildren and two grand-cats.
I'm homebound and rely on others for a great deal of my daily needs, but I am blessed to have art and pen pals to fill my days.
I mostly join regional swaps as opposed to international because I hate to wait and prefer lower postage. I'm a very reliable swapper. I always send on time (usually as soon as partners are assigned) and rate promptly upon receipt of the swap. I enjoy hosting group swaps, and will angel if necessary.
For examples of my style, click on the link above for my Instagram. More specifically I like...
My art style preference is usually abstract and more modern, mostly because I can't draw anything very well except stick figures. :)
For whatever reason, I have developed a strong aversion to images or photographs of faces, especially vintage photos. Please, please, please don't send me a swap with people faces on it. This includes anime.
I don't really"do" Halloween. I like fall stuff, just not all the ghouls, ghosts, etc.
I'm not a big fan of Zetti style art, using an assortment of body parts to create a different creature. Kawaii isn't really my thing either, but if it is sent, I pass it on to a pen pal who likes it.
I am extremely sensitive to fragrance and smoke.
I joined swapbot for the challenges and interaction with other artists. Sometimes I send extras with the swaps, but I usually put a lot into the swap requirements, and prefer to be rated based on that, not extras. Likewise, I rate on quality, not extras.
If you really want to send extras, here are a few ideas of things I can use.
Thanks for reading my profile and for swapping with me!
