About Me

My name is Janet. I am 58 years old. I have been paper-crafting for around 20 years. I started making cards with a local group of women and then moved onto scrapbooking, ATC's, journal covers. Currently, I love to create mixed media flip-books.

I live on the South Coast of NSW, Australia. I am married and have 3 married children and 4 gorgeous grandchildren. The simplest things in life give me the most pleasure: being with my grandchildren, making crafts with paper, cooking, reading, and photography.

Favorite Crafts

I love handmade objects with bright colours and painted artwork. I also like to make mixed media backgrounds, flip-books, ATC's and handmade cards for birthdays and to say thank you. My favourite colour is crimson.

I enjoy knitting, but I often don't find time for them. I love to grow veggies in my garden.
I really enjoy creating mail art and snail-mail. If I had all the time in the world, every day, I would spend time in my garden, create papercraft things, travel and spend time with my family.

About my swaps

I always send my swaps and I mark send only when I have posted them. If you haven't received my swap please contact me before rating. I always rate as soon as possible after receiving the swap. I like everything handmade. I want to make my swaps as best I can, so I do appreciate ratings with hearts and comments.

Travel

I love travelling with my husband. We like weekends away, camping and international holidays. I enjoy seeing new places from the city nightlife to the outback and beach destinations. I love meeting people on my travels and hearing about their culture and learning about the history of each place.

Consider sending this

If you're looking for more specific info about my preferences, it may be helpful to know I especially like:

Die cuts, washi tape samples, ribbon, and scrapbooking paper. Handmade bookmarks I like to receive blank cards or matching stationery. Vera Lane Studio’s whimsical and quirky digital art digital stamps. They can be found on Etsy. Vera’s images are a wink, tongue in cheek, and a smile. ElenaZinskiArt on Etsy is also a favourite of mine. Some fun characters to play with.

Comment: Thank you for the swap. I messaged you when I received it advising to please send the missing templet so the swap can be full-filled. That was in May. As of today, 6-29-21, I have not gotten the templet and advised by the coordinator to rate a 3 since only half the requirement was met. I am so sorry to rate this. A large amount of time was given but since the next rounds deadline needed to be mailed tomorrow, I went ahead and made a templet for you and mailed your postcard off.
Response: The mail system is struggling with COVID restrictions, mail has been returned to me and lost several times. Its for this reason, i will take a break from swap-bot.

Comment: I love it! But, keep in mind that the details for the swap say that it's to be made with many different pieces of scrap paper. I don't see paper scraps on here. When you get mine, you'll see what I mean...

Trevismom on Apr 3, 2021:

Hi Janet! I'm Deanna.

I live in Mississippi, USA. I'm really new to swapping. This is my first one! I've always been crafty but I also like to meet new people.

I have two grown boys and two wonderful grandsons. I also have a pomeranian named Trevi. She is my "glued to my hip" dog and does about everything I do.

We have done a lot of traveling but never made it as far as Australia yet. Our son was there with the Navy though and he really liked it.

Hope I get to see you in other swaps!

❤ Deanna
