Swaps I host

October 18, 2021. House bought, all moved in. Itโ€™s a beautiful house that my husband remodeled. I have a new covid fur baby. An 8 month old AKC registered chihuahua. 3 grandsons, a granddaughter due December in Michigan. My oldest son got a huge promotion at U of M to resident director of the administration side of things. My daughter is living with her fiancรฉ and their combined children in Coachella, along with my 19 year old son whoโ€™s been working 50+ hours a week since everyone seems to want to stay home.

October celebrates 3 years living in the beautiful state of Arizona, although ๐Ÿฅต HOT in the summer, I have always loved Lake Havasu.

July 27 2021 I havenโ€™t had time for swapbot. Buying a house and in the middle of a remodel. Also had every piece of my art collected from swapbot stolen, over 10,000 pieces of atc , inchie, TWINCHIES, skinnies, pen pal stuff. From 6 continents. Very sad. Right now I manage a veterans non profit in lake Havasu city Arizona. Im more into my job and my grandkids at the moment. Im painting rocks for fun. Iโ€™ve also found Iโ€™m a conservative artist where there are few. So Iโ€™ve lost a lot of art friends over this and itโ€™s a bit ridiculous. Thank you to everyone whoโ€™s swapped with me, friended me and supported me through the death of my husband and my 2 strokes and other incidents. Im sad to have to take a break from this site. But my priorities lie elsewhere right now.

April 17, 2020 Iโ€™m getting married May 16, 2020. Iโ€™m living in Lake Havasu City Arizona. My kids are grown and moved away, or I moved away lol.

In all the swaps Iโ€™ve participated in I have never flaked. I have joined groups, left groups, joined swaps, held rak raffles, entered rak raffles, sent random raks, but never once โ€œNOT SENTโ€ I have had to take time off from swapbot due to my health or mental health issues. But before I did that I made sure my swapping was completed.

My husband died, I still sent my swaps, my mother died, I still sent my swaps.

If you have NOT received your swap from me, it could be slow mail, lost mail or (I cringe) damaged mail. PLEASE send me a PM.

RATINGS. I rate fairly. I'm not stingy on hearts. I don't just give hearts for extras. I try to rate timely, but maybe I missed one, don't feel bad sending me a pm asking about your swap. โคโคโคโคโคโคโคโคโค


About the swaps I host, rules. You must have completed and be rated for 10 type 2 or 3 swaps. These are crafty swaps that take any kind of effort. Please read the swap description, the rules or sizes are set.

Skinny card is 3x5 inches. A skinny is the same concept that f an ATC you just have a little more room to work on. A skinny is a card, not a greeting card, although you can take artistic liberties to be as creative as you like. Sign and date the back same as an ATC

Inchie is one inch squared, TWINCHIES are 2 inch squared

ATCs are 2.5x3.5 inches so the size of a trading card. Serious collectors do care that the size is accurate

As a host I have the right to ban any swapper who does not meet requirements, they havenโ€™t logged in a couple days before I assign partners, or their profile is blank, lacking information or suspicious.

I do not maliciously drop participants but I also donโ€™t do the drama thing here or at Facebook, so if youโ€™re dropped thereโ€™s a reason.


My name is Candy Baker, on Facebook Iโ€™m candy Ann baker . My art signature is candyn29. I live in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. Just moving here in 2018 from 29 Palms, Ca. I live with my boyfriend, my kids live in Ca. And Mi. I have been a widow since 2008.

Favorite Crafts

ATC's, inchies, twinchies and skinnies! I love paper crafting! I used to crochet, cross-stitch and sew. My late husband was a woodworker, in fact he helped with a few of my cards that had wooden elements that were swapped here.

Sometimes I scrapbook, but really not to much anymore, I never was very good at it and my penmenship is not so good.

I love rubber stamps. Paper, note cards, I have probably 500 brand new Christmas cards and I have only a couple people to send them to.

Just starting out with pocket letters and really like them.

I also used to make matchboxes and altered Domino's.

Risque swaps

I like most forms of humor. Vintage tasteful nudes. Funny memes. Thought provoking cards. Swear words are fine. I like holidays. You will not offend me if you send me a religious ATC. I like political humor

You will offend me if you just don't send.

I like President Trump. I also think he's quite a character, lots of good comedy there. Im a newly registered republican. I don't mind funny Trump cards, but not distasteful please. Yes the following statement still applies.

I'm pro gay marriage, I am straight. I was raised in a house where there were gay people, anyway it's not my place to judge someone's lifestyle or religion. If it's not hurting me or anyone else , then I'm fine.

Wish list

Wish list

It's at the bottom because it's not that important.

Peices of lace, vintage photos. If you send my cabinet cards I do not cut them up, they are out away.

I would really like some images of 1950/60s housewives. Color, ATC sized.

I love stickers, I probably have to many, but I love quality stickers. If I'm sent sticker flakes or Dollar store stickers I give those to Emerson, he loves to wear them. He also loves to stick them to the floor and the fridge. ( drives me nuts)

Childrens book pages with quality images.

Not interested

I'm am not to interested in Asian style ATC's, any ATC with a horror theme. Not so much into hello Kitty, or the sanrio stuff.

In pocketletters you do NOT need to send tea or coffee. I do not use them.

Covid 19 disclaimer

Iโ€™m not participating in this plandemic. Iโ€™m not getting vaccinated and I donโ€™t care either way if youโ€™ve had yours. Being an American citizen gives me the freedom of choice and in doing my own research.

What I plan to do is continue working a participate in life.

I just wanted to say Thank you so much for sending me something, after my partner flaked, even after I told you it wasn't necessary. You really did a beautiful job on the ATC you sent, I love it !! You're a great host, I know I'm still rather new & have only been in 7 or so swaps so far, but I hope all the hosts are as helpful & kind as you've been. I've been lucky so far, all the hosts & people I've swapped with have been AMAZING (with the exception of the flaker of coarse) Well anyway I just wanted to say Thanks & wish you a wonderful weekend.
