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!!!

Comment: Oh my, this is the most beautiful ATC I have ever received!! It is absolutely stunning, I will try to find or make a frame for it, thank you, thank you!

Fabulous swap,thank you SO much and thank you for hosting these swaps, I truly enjoy them! Happy swapping from a freezing cold Copenhagen 😉 ❤️❤️

Thanks for the comment! Can you believe I’m still in Oregon? I think I’m going to live here for awhile. The good news is I found a delicious donut shop 😀. Donuts make everything better. Thanks for being a wonderful swapbotter!

Congratulations with your birthday!

Thank you so very much

for the ADORABLE Russian ornaments- swoon I love them! They are already onour tree, and will decorate it every year to come. I am particularly drawn to Russian and Ukranian traditional folk art, and love nesting dolls, so these are right up my alley. Can't thank you enough!!! :)

sabbysteg on Dec 19, 2017:

Hi Janet, thank you SO much for the stamps, what a GENEROUS present you sent, I screamed when I first opened and saw the quantity of stamps that were unused, but THEN I saw the subjects you seemed to have picked out just for me. Such a special gift, probably one of my favorites in my swap bot history. Thanks!!!!!!!!!!
