About Me

I am 41 and I live in VA with my hubby and daughter. They are my world! The best part of my life is being a mom! When your gone no one will remember what kind of car you drove or your desinger purses but my daughter will remember that she had a mom that loved her! I am truly blessed to have the wonderful family and friends that I have!

I add and delete little things on my profile depending on my mood. I do have everything in categories so you can read only what you want/need to.

I would describe myself as a fun and easy going person. I have a wicked and sometimes sarcastic sense of humor. I love dark things, rock music, and going to bars to see live bands. I love "girls night out" with my friends. I enjoy all different forms of art. I love to go to museums, plays, theater, etc. I also love to create my own art/crafts. I enjoy making things, it makes me happy (:

general swap info.

SPOILER ALERT: I post many pics of my swaps on flickr so if you want to be surprised you may not want to look at my flickr pics until you receive your swap.

I promise to rate fairly and promptly. If you don't receive a swap from me please pm me before rating as I do send out all of my swaps.I in return will give my fellow swappers the same courtesy.

I have chatted and swapped with many, many amazing, talented, and kind hearted people on sb. I hope to continue swapping with my sb friends and to make many more friends on here.



Likes and Dislikes


These likes are only to give you a feel for the types of things that I like. I don't want anyone that reads my profile to feel stressed about swapping with me. I can't stress enough that what I have written on here is just meant as a guide to help you get to know me a little more, not as a list of things that I expect in any swap. For me this site is a way for me to swap with other talented artists! I think that we ALL have an artist inside and I appreciate everything that I receive from you!

Reading, gardening, concerts, going to movies, wine tastings, going out with my friends, board games, wii, crafts, family time.

A major dislike is a flaker! If you don't plan on sending then don't join the swap. I don't like it when people post pics of someone's art only for the purpose of trashing it. I don't like bullies.

agonysdecay rated for Altered Muffin Tin: Halloween on Sep 25, 2012
Comment: Tracy!!! I absolutely love this!!! You did a fantastic job on it!!! Did you use melted wax? What a great idea, I just love it!!! Is it the same one in the swap photo? I hope you have a picture of it, its masterpiece!!! Thanks so much! Oh yeah, thanks also for all the extras! The card is adorable, I want a little witch like her, lol. Are these bits from Michaels? I haven't made it out there yet for Halloween shopping.
Response: I had a hard time parting with my tin,lol! I think that the person in the swap pic used wax also, but I am not sure. I believe the tin is the same. I got mine on ebay pretty cheap.. I just thought the wax went well with vintage feel I wanted for my tin. I do have a pic of it posted on my flickr. Michaels has some great Halloween stuff out right now. Thanks so much for your wonderful comment, rating, and heart. Hope to swap with you again!
