About Me

September 25, 2021

(I will be deleting un-needed information as I clear things up).

I am tying up and rectifying my loose ends. AKA 1's.

I have taken time off Swapbot for most of 2021. My last log in on swapbot was back In April 2021. When I logged on today, September 25, 2021, I was surprised to find 5 unexpected 1 ratings on my profile. I have been in touch with these swap recipients.

The 1's ARE my fault, as I should have not gone 6 months without logging on. One is a postcard swap. Yes, 1 postcard, that I did not know was not received, earned me a 1 rating. 1 rating is for 3 blank post cards in an envelope. The other 1 is for a WIMME of which I did not know she has not received. I have been in touch with these 3 and am rectifying these 1's as of today. Going out Monday, September 27th, with proof of sending/re-sending to the 3 mentioned above.

***I have 2 other 1's of which I am working on re-sending again. They are 2 swaps to the same person. I just found out today that my re-sends were never received, as the recipient moved to a new address. I also was informed they were angeled. I will be re--sending to my original swap partner, as I am wanting to make this right. I will also be sending the swap to whom ever Angeled, as I would like to say thank you and be sure they get a swap in return as well.

****Please message me before making any assumptions. I do not want to create uneccassary drama. A "1" is not always a "1". I will be logging Into swapbot daily to follow up on these.****

Please message me with any questions.

I like to send smiles across the miles:-). I don't like DRAMA or unnecessary frustration. I hope to soon pick up where I left off and continue sending smiles across the miles:-)

September 26th, 2021---SWAPS AND RATINGS ****Hi to all my swapbot friends and future swappers. When ALL is up to date for me on swapbot, I will be deleting the below information. Looking forward to future swaps and making new friends. I have already found a few gems on swapbot and for that, I am thankful💕.

I am from Hopkins/Minneapolis, MN. During the time I was with my mom during her multiple strokes to the end of my moms life journey, my city was burning down. We had my mom creamated and waited until we were able to have a small out of state service for her. On July 5th, shortly after my moms service, my sister passed away unexpectedly.

ON A SIDE NOTE: our mail has delayed since mid 2020, some days with no delivery and some mail has been completely lost. The Minneapolis Post office that was was burnt down and looted during the riots was a main hub for Minneapolis mail. The second post office that was burnt down and looted was a main artery also. Because of this, in return, I will message you if I dont receive a swap. It is most likely way far delayed or lost. I will not rate without being in touch with you. I would appreciate the same courtesy. Thank you.****


Hi:-) I am a mixed media, steampunk, grungy, shabby chic with a vintage twist sort of gal. I enjoy anything by Ranger. This includes Dylusions and Tim Holtz products. I also like Finnabar products and love to work with any type of mixed mediums including Gesso's. On the Whimsical/mystical side of things, I like unicorns, fairies,mermaids and dragons. I like Alice In wonderland ephemra (old style by Lewis Carrol), I usually order bits and pieces of ephemera on Etsy.....I enjoy making cards, working in my mixed media journal, altered art as well as making pocket letters and ATC cards;-) I like vintage colors in teal, kraft stock brown, reds, etc. I like using pastels on winter themes, easter and summer crafts. On the flip side I enjoy working with jewel tones;-) Neons. (neons have a time and a place in my opinion; and that is the 80's). However, I will work with neons on an appropriate theme; -) I'm an equal opportunity crafter. Lol. Purple and teal are my favorite colors. I am a non-smoker, non-smoker swaps please. :-). On a side note, I have a GG TN-A4 planner ;-)

Favorite Music

I enjoy mostly rock, but like country as well. I do a minimum of three music festivals every summer with my husband of 25 years. I enjoy rockfest, country fest and Winstock music festival. I also go to concerts in general here and there.

a peek into my life

I am married, 26 years, a mother of two children, a boy and a girl. My daughter is my baby girl. Always will be no matter how old she gets:-). My son, Gavin, is an Angel. He received his wings at the tender age of 8-1/2. God was ready, I was not.

I am a nurse practitioner, as I enjoy working with and helping people. My most recent job has been working with kids with Autism and PDD. I have worked in cardiology, endocrinology, psychiatry and general ER over the past 23 years.

Favorite Books

I don't do much reading these days. In the past I have enjoyed reading Stephen King, John Grisham and the Harry Potter series.

Favorite Movies

Midnight In Paris, Serendipity, ELF and 50 First Dates .

Favorite Television

My husband and I like to pick different series from netflix, HULU, etc. We are currently watching Castle Rock.

Favorite Crafts

Pocket letters, ATC'S, inchies, twinchies, in be-tweenies, etc. Mixed media Cards, junk Journals, Altered objects, altered books, I will alter and or mix media just about anything. Lol.

I would like to spend some time learning about resins and mold casting. I am new to jewelry making, although, most of what starts out as a chunky charm, ends up being something steampunk or grungy. I enjoy working with metals and a soldering iron.

I am always on the look for a new crafty obsession :-) :-) :-).

I will make it right

PLEASE if you have not received a swap from me and you have given a little time, please message me ASAP and I will re-send and make it right. I will continue until the wrong has been made right. My "wrongs", are never intentional. I am not a flaker. I will ALWAYS re-send, as many times as it takes.

Please check your private messages. Thanks and hoping things are improving! So very sorry for the losses you’ve experienced in such a short, condensed time. Hoping you’ll be able to find it in your heart to turn the other cheek and eventually forgive anyone who’s mistreated you on this website — people are so frustrated about so many things these days it seems, and they easily misplace their anger and turn it outward ... hang in there!

I'm so sorry to read about your family <3 I hope that the rest of the summer gets better and you and your family have time and space to heal. (And I hope you have some awesome, happy swaps as well!)

ChelseaStarleen on Jun 19, 2020:

So sorry to hear about your Mother passing. Hope you are hanging in there and coping as well as you can be. Sending you good vibes.<3

AnneC on Jun 13, 2020:

I'm very sorry about your mother's passing. It must be a difficult time for you to be isolated and grieving. Please reach out if you need to talk or vent
