Thank you

I am having to step back for hopefully a little while. I thank all of you are stepping up to help. A big warm thank you.

Good news we have mail coming to our mail box again!

If you haven't gotten your swap from me please email and will resend and if I have a pic of the old one I will send it to you while the new one is on the way.

My area of East TN has had very bad weather with much flooding and snow. I have missed many days of work due to being unable to drive on the road I live on. It seems that my mail person has not been delivering my mail and my mail box is a mile and hafe up the road from my house. My husband is going to go talk to the post master. If a swap has come back to you please message me. Thank you for your understanding with this matter.

I will be cutting back on my hosting, joining of swaps and dropping from some of my groups. This is not a reflection on the groups just my time and the fact that my computer is on it's last legs. Thank you to everyone I have swapped with.

If you are looking at this you are probably trying to put together something to send me. Let me just say thank you for taking the time to learn something about me and if you are making something for me you have my deep gratitude.

If for some reasons you have not gotten your goodies or rating,please, contact me. Believe me it was not on purpose. I believe in rating and like giving hearts.But just sending me anything doesn't do it. I do not believe that you have to send goodies to get a heart but the work should show heart/effort, meet the requirements of the swap, and be on time. I have been known to give a heart when a swap is late when I have been contacted. I am more into the giving than the getting. I see swaps as personal challenges and do try very hard to do a good job. If I have not rated you I may have not gotten your work. I have had strange things happen to my swaps and to swaps coming to me. I have a terrible post office where my mail comes in and will not deliver any package and some times my mail has even be opened. I usually take my swap to the next county over to send out. So, Please!!!, email if you have concerns. I try to scan all flat work in case it gets lost in the mail and will happily send you a jpeg until I can replace a lost swap.

I cover swaps that I host and will usually cover swaps in ether of the two groups I watch over. I do not like people to be disappointed and try to be fair with everyone. I watch over the Goddess Reborn group & The hand drawn/painted ATC group. I am not a forum girl. If you want perfect spelling I am not that person. I am so not into drama and believe in live and let live. If I don't like someone I just don't deal with them. I don't have room in my life for negative behavior. If you are in one of my groups and are unhappy please contact me. If I can't fix it or you are not happy with what I do -move on, have a good life and happy swapping. This is a voluntary activity . No hard feeling on my part.

About Me

I am very happily married. Never been blessed with children but I do have some wonderful Goddess children who I am close with. I have two dogs outside and one cat inside who allows us to live with her. I love quirky over cute. Don't mind dark and absolutely into the different. So, the more creative the better. I love learning about cultures all around the world.

Favorite Books

I love to read! I read trash and treasures . I like doing research and love reading trash. I own a collection of fairy tails from around the world for both children and adults. Please do not send me books I Kindle.

Favorite Movies

I love movies. I also love theater and live story telling. In truth I think I just love stories and don't care what form they come in.

test

Favorite Television

I rather make art or read. but like everything else in my life I like the unusual and show that make you think or use your imagination.

Favorite Crafts

test

I was trained as an artist and teach art so I do many forms of 2D & 3D art. I feel like a Jack of many trades but master of none. I will say that I do not like to knit, or do hand work of that nature but love other peoples work. I really love that type of work and have a collection of goodies from friends and family. Some day I am going to learn how to quilt. I would like to receive an inchies so I can look at one to try to make one.

test

Like/dislike.

I love art related items! I love learning about all types of religions and different cultures from different time periods.

I like: moons and new and old mythology from all around the world

sea life ( sea dragons, tropical fish, octopuses, sea monsters)

bugs ( spinning spiders, Luna moths, cool beetles)

I am into aroma therapy and essential oils. I like to wear rose and spice base scents. I am very fond of and incense made with essential oil.

I love flowers and herbs but never meet a tree I didn't like or mushroom. I am not a gardener but live on a large plot of land. It would better to say that I live in a hidden valley on top of a mountain. I am a Goddess Gardner/ air farmer- if the Goddess doesn't grow it isn't happening and I have 311 acres of wooded land that is making air for everyone to enjoy.

I love water and almost everything in it.

colors: one can never have to many crayons in ones box but my home is in colors that relate to the forests of the eastern US.

Period inspired work is cool. Dark is fine. Naughty is nice if not crude ( Betty Page cool- Hustler not).

test I love hand made quality crafts and art. I love unusual and different!- I Love all things old, ethnic, unique, and thoughtful items of the heart

I also have few things that make me unhappy:

PLASTIC BEADS!!!!!!!! Really I hate plastic beads and big wood beads. Green tea or hibiscus No clowns or hobos. I don't like artificial smells.

Please do not send me books. Every time someone sends me a book in a swap I have already read it and I feel awful that they have paid shipping.

Please do not send me religious pamphlets or books to convert me to some other religion. Yes I do own a Bible , a copy of the Koran and several other religious texts. I understand that often people will send this as an act of kindness on their part but I am very happy as a Wiccan and have been for over 1/2 my life now. Book gift certificates are always welcome and used. I Kindle so amazon works best for me.

Ahh beads...

I love beads. I admit I am a bit of a bead snob. I don't like plastic most wood or clay beads unless they are hand carved or have a strong religious or ethnic significance. I have a collection that would rival many small bead stores and a collection of historic and handmade beads that are museum quality.

Comment: What a perfect package for me! The orchid flowers I sew with the kanzashi maker will definitely be used at my wedding, and the flower centers and memory thread are so cool - so THAT'S why you wanted to know my wedding colors! Tee hee. Thanks for my tea as well, and a perfect new beginning package.
Response: I love flowers and a lady should always have what se dreams of at her wedding. I am glad I was able to find something you could use. as always you are a joy to send to . I too love kanzashi and if I was better with fabric I would put up a swap. Maybe I will put up a flower made out of anything and just do mine out of French wire work. happy swapping and thank you for taking the time to rate me.
