About Me

Hey! Thanks for stopping by! On August 12 of this year, I died. Thankfully someone stopped to help me. They preformed cpr for approximately 5 minutes, until the ambulance arrived. With 1 shock, I was back. I am so thankful! Only about 5% of people survive this kind of thing! It;s called Sudden Cardiac Arrest. If you are a survivor, please share your story with me. I'm still recovering, but my prognosis is good. Only this week (10/30/19 ) was I able to complete a small piece of art. Yay me! I'm not worried, it'll come, I mean art, It's in my blood. I'm looking forward to a second chance at life. Thanks for reading!

Also if you're into zines, please share! I'm very easy to please. We've met some really great swappers! This is a wonderful place.

My 3 rating

Hi, I have a 3 rating..... I admit I forgot one element of the swap, a list of things I liked about Christmas. I did not flake. (Plus it cost 7$ to send!) I sent the swap, my partner did not like what I sent. She said she was very disappointed. I guess I was too. Live and learn. Plus, she didn't give me the chance to make it right.

Please look at my ratings section. I think you'll see most people have been happy with what I've sent. Thanks.

Kitchen items

I love cooking. I also love mason jars. Things I could use: Labels, towels, RED, I also like unusual cookie cutters. Thanks! About Candy, coffee and tea- Sugar free candy please, dark roast coffee and ANY kind of tea (love them all)

About Me

I love all forms of art, but especially paper/mixed media art. I have taken classes by Melody Ross/Brave Girls Club. I've done alot of different crafts, from sewing my girls dresses(as children) to painting (now). I live in Minnesota! I don't read very much, except my Bible and devotional. Also, If you're into zines,I would love for you to share one. You may receive one from me!

Comment: Thanks for your bright-eyed golden-eared rat card, Star! I have a rat in my life these days -- he climbs into my bird feeders, eats the seed, & leaves a trail of rat poop. I know he's just another creature trying to make a living, but I'm finding it hard to see rats as cute & charming or the harbinger of good fortune! Wishing you too a good year - with or without rats!
Response: Thanks so much! I'm glad for a new year and another chance! Well, can't say I like rats, but I'm hoping this year will bring LOTS of good things. It's all in your attitude, in my opinion. So I'm keeping a good one and hoping for the best! My Best to you!

BTW, I ‘borrowed’ your idea and also put all of my fall favorites on slips of paper in the pocket letter I sent out. Thanks for such a great idea; I really enjoyed thinking about what I’ve loved about fall in the past. :) <3
