Favorite Crafts

I like cross stitch, drawing, scrapbooking, making things for my little baby. I would like to learn how to make ATCs, so if you can send me any i can see examples and take it from there! I love crocheted things but can't do it myself. Same goes for sewing! However, if you want to send me little scraps of fabric that would be awesome! Just bought a sewing machine and learning to use it so cute fabric or easy patterns for crafts would be really awesome!

my new addiction and postcard

I am trying to increase my collection of smashed pennies so if you have any duplicates or any you want to get rid of, feel free to send them my way :-) pennies from where you live would be awesome but any sort of pennies will be so welcome! As far as postcards, I prefer standard size ones as I keep them in a photo album. Would rather naked but not fussy! I love city and nature views, monuments, landscape and greetings from postcards. Not too fussed about art prints or animal or cartoon ones. Don't really like "funny" ones either. Other than that anything goes!!

Comment: Since you haven't been on Swap-bot since before partners were assigned, I'll assume you don't intend to send this swap. I'll change the rating if I ever receive anything.
Mamamoose rated for July 2014 Penny Swap on Aug 16, 2014
Comment: As you haven't been online on Swap-Bot since July, 8 it's obvious that you didn't send anything and even didn't bother to learn who your partners are in this swap. I'd hesitate to give you a 1 as I know that sometimes life doesn't always go to plan, but you obviously are well enough to post on Facebook. So I don't understand why you all of a sudden stopped all activities here without finishing the swaps you had signed in.
StarMouse rated for Friendship Deco Round 4 on Aug 9, 2014
Comment: I do hope that you will eventually send me the Friendship Deco you received, so that it can get it back into circulation, out of respect for the other artists who worked in it. When that happens, I will change your rating to a 3.

Comment: All I received was an envelope with two handwritten notes. There was no magnet in it.

I know it's not the same as getting real happy mail and yummy swaps in the mail, but it's the thought that counts, right? Hope it brings a smile to your face. :)
