On Monday, Oct 16 I collapsed in my bedroom and was unable to get up unassisted. I was taken by ambulance to the hospital, where I have been ever since. I have a severe bacterial infection called cellulitis, a very painful skin condition that resembles a really bad sunburn. I'm currently in the blistering stage, and will be spending the next two weeks in a skilled nursing facility for IV antibiotics and some physical therapy. I won't be swapping for awhile, but will try to keep up with ratings.
Update Nov. 9: I'm finally home from the hospital and slowly beginning to recover, I think. I had an allergic reaction to the antibiotics and have a horrible rash from Head to toe. It looks like I'll be missing lots of holiday swaps. ☹️
I'm a 50- something full time homemaker, married to the love of my life for 38 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. Sadly it is becoming more and more difficult to walk to my studio so I am cutting back on the swaps for now.
I'm a very reliable swapper, I always send on time 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...
I really like the art style of Roben-Marie Smith and Rae Missigman. My 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.
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.
If we are swapping washi tape, please don't send dollar store tapes. They do not reuse well and I end up throwing them out. If that is all you have and we are partners, please contact me so we can work something else out.
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!
