About Me

First, Some Important Stuff:

For every swap I commit myself to, please be assured I will send on time; therefore, if you haven't received a swap from me, I ask that you let me know so I can resolve the problem.

Type 3 Swaps - I will ALWAYS have a delivery confirmation attached for both our benefit.

Ratings - I will rate my swap partner(s) in timely fashion. If for some reason, I have not rated you, please contact me ASAP so I can rectify this. As well, I expect to be rated in a timely fashion when you have received my swap. :))

Hi! I'm Marti. I'm a married mom of 2 grown sons!! I live in North Central Florida. I'm Puerto Rican / Italian and have 8 sisters and brothers. Yes, I am Catholic!! :)

I am a mixed media artist and enjoy crafting, journaling, cooking & baking, spending time with my family & friends, doodling & reality TV. I work full-time outside the home for a major insurance company as a CSR II.

Favorite Music

I love rock and roll, classic rock and some new stuff. I like too many groups to list but mainly:

  • Pearl Jam
  • Journey
  • Default
  • Creed
  • Rush
  • 3 Doors Down
  • Fuel
  • Breaking Benjamin.... ....and so many others. I also enjoy going to concerts.

Favorite Movies

The movie that made the most impact on my spiritual being was, The Passion of the Christ.

One of the most inspirational movies I've ever watched was Eat Pray Love. What a wonderful movie!! Quotes galore!!!!

Favorite Crafts

I love making my mixed media art! That has to be my passion. I also enjoy:

  • Decoupage anything
  • FBs & LBs
  • Doodle Art / Mail Art
  • Papercrafts
  • Whimsy Jars
  • Art journaling

Postcards

I love sending & receiving postcards!! As stated above, the type of postcards I enjoy receiving mostly are: HAND-MADE!!!, indie type, artsy & retro although any will do.

Can't think of what to write on a PC? Send me your favorite quote!! I love quotes...

International PC Swaps: I would love to receive postcards that are written on in your own language. Very cool.

FOR ALL PCs, please please date your postcards!! Thanks soooo much!! :)

Final Word on Rating PCs: I realize it's kind of "hard" to do something special with postcards as in other swap types where you can add an extra goodie in the package. I have no problem rating my partners with a heart unless of course, I don't receive a heart from you. How "wrong" can it go sending a postcard to someone? This is suppose to be fun... and like everyone else, I enjoy swapping and I also enjoying receiving a heart. So if you don't rate me with a heart, please don't message me asking why I didn't rate you with a heart. :)

Are you ever coming back to Swapbot?

cathydoe on Mar 17, 2012:

Hello Sweetie! I don't think I have ever said hello to you on here! :)

Nandin on Jan 11, 2012:

Thank you so much for the awesome package! You are one of my favorite swappers as well! Package coming your way soon! :-)

Nandin on Oct 25, 2011:

I haven't forgotten about you. I'm just waqiting for payday! (Friday) How does 10 FB's/ 10LB's sounds?

Barbi on Oct 21, 2011:

Hi Marti, glad to meet you here & on facebook. I have sent a few invitations to some swapping groups. Hope you'll join :)

Nandin on Oct 9, 2011:

Would you want to do a Private Fb/LB Swap? I have a lot of excess and starters right now!

thegypsie on Jul 22, 2011:

Swap: Read my profile and write a comment. Can you tell me a bit more about traveling journals? It sounds very intriguing. I noticed you like FBs and concerts, I just started on Fbs again and looking for more people to swap with. I saw Berlin and The Fab Four at the Mid State fair last night. It was awesome! I enjoyed reading your profile, happy swapping. :)

Hi! I'm your partner in the Read my profile and write a comment.

Your profile is so neat & easy to read. I see that you like Tim Holtz stuff! So do I. I can't get enough of all the embellishments and inks/stains.

I love that you have all your description and also a summarise of your profile for those who needs a quick look. =D

coachfee on Jul 21, 2011:

Hi, Welcome to swap bot from one former central Florida girl to a new one. I use to live in Polk co. and I was born in Miami. Like you I have a Spanish/ Italian background and was raised Catholic with many brothers and sisters. And there is nothing better than warm Cuban bread and cafe for breakfast. I hope you find many super swaps and enjoy swap bot like I do. Happy swapping- Lisa/Tengu2 read my profile& write a comment
