HELLO 😃 😋 😍 ..

I received mail from Ohio that was mangled en route! The only thing the post office was able to forward me was the front of the envelope and it had very little info as to who sent it. Whoever did, didn't even use a full name on the return address and it was very hard to read. Let me know if it was you and you're out there somewhere wondering if I got your mail!!

I'm Tara, 42 (making me the answer!?), and from Upstate New York. I had never done anything like this before finding swap-bot but I think it is pretty awesome! New to swapping and new to art in general too!

And just like that, I'm obsessed.........

♥ If what I sent wasn't enough or to your liking, I am truly sorry! I will always send what's required, at the very least, and on time. Occasionally a postmark might not match my send date because after I drop it in a big blue box I mark it sent and it is out of my hands at that point!! If for some reason you don't get what I have sent, please don't rate me down without sending a quick note. Communication is KEY. I will always make good on anything!

♥ I rate the day I open my mail; however I do not get mail from the post office every day and when I do, sometimes there is a lot!! If somehow I missed rating you, please send me a note and we will figure it out.

♥ I would never ever rate a 3 or 1 without communicating with you first, please give me the same respect.

♥ RAKs are harder to keep track of so I generally send them pretty promptly. If it has been awhile and you think you should have gotten something, just send me a message and we can work it out!

Favorite Crafts

Love all things artsy and craftsy!! I'm new to a lot but love learning new things and enjoy paper crafting, drawing, painting, abstract, pouring, collaging, lettering, scrapbooking, embroidery, cross stitch, weaving, string art.... I craft with acrylics, watercolor, markers, alcohol inks, yupo, ceramic, wood, paper, glass, stickers, rub-ons, inks, stamps, embossing, washi, and plan to try resin soon. I just got a cricut explore air 2 so I'm looking forward to all that can do! I also have a few jewelry making kits to try, a soap making kit and recently got equipment to try my hand at wood burning and metal stamping! Willing and eager to learn any new crafts or hobbies.

I'm starting a new project and need your help!
I bought a set of blank playing cards (blank backs/normal numbered faces) and I want them to be designed by YOU! If you are willing to design one or more cards, let me know! I will send you the cards (you can pick which if you have a preference) and when I receive the card back, I will send you some random bits or bobs or who knows!

Only rules are that they must be different so no repeat designs if you do more than one. Ex. if you do two cards they could both be butterfly theme but don't make them both the same color with the same sticker/drawing/words, etc. And please nothing negative/hateful and no politics or heavily religious please!

Thanks, xoxo

Comment: Our minds are in sync - it's kinda scary as I joined because I thought Timey Wimey when I saw the swap! Brilliant!!! I can't wait for your next one!! I'm days away from moving so I haven't gotten to do much Netflixing but once we settle down again, Dollhouse is up next. Lots of unpacking ahead so it'll be perfect to watch as I'll be stuck inside for a few weeks! xxMuggleMom
