About Me

I'm a co-parent to a gorgeous 17 yr old girl. She keeps us very busy. We run a B&B. I'm 46 and have been a quadriplegic since a car accident at age 16. I'm going to try to explain this a little better because I get the feeling (strongly) that some swappers either don't read this but about me or don't understand it at all. Right now I'm typing this with my thumb knuckle. I can't move or use my fingers. Much of what I do involves using my teeth (especially when I sew or bead)'. I'm not writing any of this to gain sympathy points. I am asking that you accept my limitations the way I do. Plain and simple-- there are some things I can't do. I've scrapbooked for 10 years now and only discovered ATCs last year. I love them! I love anything involving paper and pens. I'm more artsy than I am crafty... I do not like getting stickers used as "art." It just isn't my taste. But If you kind find a way to incorporate them artistically, go for it!

Favorite Music

I enjoy lots of different kinds of music, depending on what I am doing. Classical, rock, you name it. My current fav is k.d. lang, hymns of the 49th parellel (sp?!!!).

Favorite Books

I love Jodi Piccoult, especially The Pact.

Favorite Movies

I don't have one. I'm very fussy and find it difficult to find a movie I love. I recently saw The Golden Compass and loved it. I also loved the book.

Favorite Television

Law and Order, Grey's Anatomy, Heartland

Favorite Crafts

Scrapbooking, felting (really digging this), cooking, making handmade cards, photography.

About Me

I have asthma and am VERY sensitive to scent so please leave it out of anything you send. I really appreciate that.

Fav colors: pink and orange, pink and brown, pink and light blue, ocean blue and green

Comment: This swap did not meet posted swap requirements. They were 1/4 of an inch too skinny, so they were 2 1/4" x 3 1/2"...and they weren't ATCs even if they had been the right size. What I got was pieces of cardstock that were 2 1/4 x 3 1/2 inches and had a bleach stamped image on them. There was no sort of embellishment or anything, and nothing to back the cardstock up to make it sturdy. The main thing though is that the swap requirements stated to stamp an image with bleach and then embellish...these did not meet that requirement. They were also late, but if I'd have received ONE ATC that met the swap requirements I would have still rated a 5 or a 5 with heart depending on what the ATC was like. Sorry for having to rate a 3, but this definitely did not meet the requirements of the swap.
Response: I'm sorry you feel this way. I cut the cards myself and I was certain they were the right size.I'm a quadiplegic and I do the best I can. Why didn't you contact me directly and I could do something about this. I work hard on my ATCs. I thought by sending you a bunch of blanks you could use them yourself as blanks. And there is absolutely NO rule about "flimsy." The ATC I got was printed on handmade paper and it was flimsy until I put it in a sleeve. Can't you do the same? Again, I'm sorry you feel this way.

Comment: Thanks for the Card. Hopefully you are going to be in the ATC swap since your cupcakes were originally meant for ATCs and they are so tiny and cute and would fit perfectly on an ATC! Thanks again! And thanks for the flowers!

Comment: Thank you for the ATC's but unfortunately I did not feel that they met the swap requirements. Firstly they were both identical which I felt was not what the swap required, and secondly the swap also asked that: "On the back, besides the usually information: Your name, swap-bot nickname, name of swap & date, I would also like you to tell something about the candybars whose wrappers you used: Is it your favorite? Describe what it tastes like, whether or not you recommend it, etc... Just some added bit of chocoholic information." which I was looking forward to and which you failed to include at all. I also don't feel that simply sticking the wrappers on to a piece of card stock counts as making an ATC.
Response: It has taken me awhile to respond to this because I found it very hurtful. I decided today to do something about this thing that is bothering me so much. First, I could do the swap again if you like. And have you read my profile at all? The cards were both the same but they weren't identical-- they were meant to be a pair. And secondly, as a quadriplegic, I didn't just stick the wrappers on cardstock. I very carefully gave the wrappers texture, I searched high and low for glue that would stick to the foil. I didn't just throw these cards together.I thought they were very pretty. They had a fabulous smell. So if you would like cards that meet your exact requirements, I'll happily make them. Susan

Hi there I just sent the C Country ATC's to you today, I'm sorry they are late, but I found the alphabet country series ATC's to be very difficult and challenging for me!!! I hope you understand. I didn't they would be so hard when I signed up for the swap.

CyndiLou on Aug 26, 2008:

So sorry for the delay, but I sent your Same Image ATC today.
