I'm a 44 year old woman who is married with no children. I could be described as a chatty, creative and friendly person. I try to be the positive type who always is looking for a silver lining. I have been pen palling for over 30 years. I love to travel internationally, make ATCs, collect fonts, shop for pal supplies, binge watch Netflix, cheer for the Minnesota Vikings, and hang out with my 2 puppies. I'm open minded to all lifestyles and interests and love to learn about other cultures and ways of life.
I have an Etsy store that sells foreign book pages for crafts. I opened it because I had a hard time finding them for myself and figured that others might be looking too.
Decorative napkins for decoupage
Note sheets (all sizes)
Good quality stickers (no kids stickers or reward stickers please)
Postcards (especially from your city or country)
ATCs you've made
Small pictures or bits in 3's that could be used on JAMS
anything French or English bulldog
Kawaii and Sentimental Circus stickers and paper
Glitter or confetti that pour out of an envelope when I open it
Disney or other kid things
Things that smell of smoke
Gory or sexual things
Right now I'm obsessed with mixed media ATCs. I have made so many and I'm excited to trade in some of the groups!
I'm open to private trades as well. Just message me.
I have been to about 26 countries and 48 states
I like to do adventurous things as often as the opportunity strikes like sky dive, crazy hikes and swim with sharks
I was the only girl in my family & extended family (both sides) until I was 12
I've never had a speeding ticket
I believe that if you focus on what you're grateful for, more good things come your way
IN GENERAL: If you're ever unhappy with something I have sent, how I have handled a situation or a rating I have given, please reach out and lets discuss. I'm not perfect... and although I try to do the right thing, sometimes I misstep. I want both of us to have a drama-free Swap-Bot experience and there is no need for anyone to get worked up.
I never know the best way to handle negative situations since everyone has different expectations... just know that I am trying to be fair and if you're not happy with that let's discuss and work something out privately.
RATING: I try to rate within 48 hours of receiving something unless I'm on vacation. If I miss a rating, please contact me.
SWAPS NOT RECEIVED: I will reach out if I haven't received something if it has been a while, even if you said you mailed it. I will give you a chance to make it right but may rate a 1 or a 3 until it is resolved. It's not personal or intended to cause negativity. If you did send it's your option to offer a resend or wait. I won't hound you. If you choose to resend, I will always re-rate because it is the right thing to do.
SWAPS I HOST: I will always angel... Please reach out to me for guidance and note that my approach is typically to assume good intent.. Note that I expect you and your partner make an attempt to work it out and that you rate them appropriately. Once both of those things have happened I will angel.
DON'T LIKE WHAT I SENT: I always read your profile before sending and I try to send things that I think you would like. If I am off base, let's work it out.
Here are some of the ATC themes I'm collecting:
French or English Bulldogs
Anything in funky glasses
Anything wearing a top hat
Gelli Print backgrounds
Moroccan / Indian styles
Textured (think texture paste)
Painted or cleverly used book pages
Here are the ATCs themes and styles I'd prefer not to receive:
Cards decorated with stickers (unless minimal and cleverly placed)
Backgrounds with just a quote attached
Digital art where it is printed out and glued onto an ATC sized card
ATCs that mimic homemade card techniques
Ones where it's mostly just a sticker or 2 on a background
Over sized to where they don't fit in a sleeve
Washi tape as decoration
