How I Swap

I rate according to the quality of the swap. I am easygoing and not stingy with 5s and hearts if I feel there is effort put into the swap. I do not expect extras.

If I get you as a partner, I will read your profile, look at your Flickr, Etsy, or anything else on SB in order to get a sense of your likes, dislikes, and style. I will put my best effort into swapping something I think you will love. I usually send little extras, but expect you to rate only on the quality of the swap itself.

I expect (and will give in return) timely communication and ratings.

I do not lightly rate someone down. I consider myself to be understanding and kind. However, if I feel that someone has egregiously taken advantage of that understanding nature, I will rate accordingly.

About Me

I live in Utah at the base of the Wasatch Mountains; a native Californian who still fears the winter after many years here! I love to make cards, garden, read, travel, scuba dive, and do anything in the sunshine!

I am married, have two rescued dogs, and constantly battle with pet hair. My husband and I run an accounting business, and do tax and forensic accounting. We have an old 1878 restored "farmhouse" office building with a small peach orchard in the front. We also grow other things at both our farmhouse and our residence, so summer/fall brings a lot of bounty and a lot of work!!! I am an impatient gardener, crafter, and most everything else.

Favorite Crafts

Making cards and envelopes, organizing and re-organizing crap, a little sewing, and a little embroidery.

Other Favorites

All things paper, all colors, dogs, puppy breath, sunshine and beaches, fabric, ribbons, garden seeds, historical biographies, unique embellishments, vintage things, etc. Basically, just love STUFF (of all types)!

I have an unhealthy obsession with anything paper (brown paper bags, boxes, tissue, stationery, wrapping paper, paper office supplies ....) I think that is why I love to wrap presents ... I would rather spend more time wrapping things than actually making things ...

Things I Love/Hoard

Pretty wrapping supplies

Recipes using fresh peaches

Embroidery Floss

Paper stuff

Vintage paper stuff

New paper stuff

Crepe paper, kraft paper, manila paper, copy paper, tissue paper, toilet paper (!), cardboard, chipboard .... and the list goes on.

I love licorice pastels (but not so much plain black licorice)

I love chocolate with nuts (but not so much chocolate without nuts)

I like most everything and every flavor of everything!!!
