About Me

*** I am taking a break. I am in a few groups on FB where I swap ATC's, and that is my current art passion right now.

So, as of 30 APR 2021, I'll be taking a break. I will do private swaps, but not many big ones. ****

I was on Swap-bot when it began. But, life happened & I got stationed overseas. I am excited about being back.

I am a professional photographer for the military, & I absolutely love what I do. The Military has always been my life. I was born into the Army life, & now I work for the Army, AF & USN most of the time. In my free time, I'm out shooting photos, or home doing mixed media, altered art, playing cards, journals, & collecting postcards. I'm on PostCrossing as well.

***** NOTE ***** RE: 1 (ONE) Rating ***** So, as you can see below, one of the 20 partners I sent to in Stuff the Mailbox #28 gave me a really cruddy rating without contacting me first.

She did not reach out to me before rating me, nor has she responded to my message regarding this really bad rating.

I do KNOW for a fact that I sent her a stuffed envelope. I am getting ready to send her another envelope, but this one will be exactly as stated in the swap instructions & not a thing more. See I ALWAYS send my partners stuff according to THEIR profile, & I stuff the envelopes when I can. But, for Lindsay Ernster @lindsaysplans2plan   I will do only as instructed for a second send.

Again, I KNOW what I sent to her the first time. I cannot recreate pages from a 1957 National Geographic, nor the vintage books, papers or items I had included in the first very stuffed envelope.

But, I will have the five things I have to send in the second one.

If I come across nasty, I'm not. But, if you come to my page & rate me a one without prior communication...yeah, I will be catty! MEOW!

So, if you end up with Lindsay Ernster lindsaysplans2plan as your partner. I hope she doesn't treat you as badly as she has done to me!

I RATE my partners as soon as I get their stuff.

I am an old Swap-bot person. This makes me sad.

PEOPLE: Communicate with your partners.

Favorite Crafts

Mixed media art, ATCs, Playing cards, altered books & journals, gluebooks, vintage altered art, scrapbooking, & basically most paper arts.

Photography is my job & passion as well. So, I'm always up for swapping photos.

I am a kitchen witch & love to cook & bake. So, recipes are always special to me.

I also love grungy, dark, Pagan, witch & Halloween type crafts. (Except zombies. Just no!)

I use Golden Books, math, business, home etc., math, shorthand & other textbooks, vintage ephemera, illustrations from children’s ns books, anything witchy & Halloween related, postcards, anything for collage, napkins, maps, vintage photos & old cookbooks or recipes.
