3/7/23 Today, I had a total of 2222 ratings of 5!
Jan 17, 2023---I have recently decided to start swapping again and I am trying to make up my low ratings. I am slowly getting back in and learning the site again. I am only doing flat mail until I get my swaps made up.
I've lived in Colorado since 1976. I have 2 boys and 2 grandsons. We have a rowdy Australian Shepherd named Chip and a black cat named Wilson (=^.^=).
I LOVE to garden, cook, papercraft, knit, crochet and some sewing.
ATCs and supplies--precut cardboard backings, papers, charms, stickers, flowers, jewels, lace, ribbon, feathers, any destash items.
I would love your finished destash ATCs, Skinnies, Inchies or Twinchies that don't fit into your collection if you are looking for a home for them :)

I really dislike abstract art! I really dislike black and white art! PLEASE WRITE LEGIBLY! It is very frustrating when I have to decifer the message. This means running letters together, rushed handwriting, etc. PLEASE PUT YOUR RETURN ADDRESS! This is because the postmark is rarely clear enough for me to tell where the card was sent from.
You will NOT get a heart if either of these things are missing. I always look for reasons to give hearts but I can no longer overlook these two things, sorry.

******DISLIKES/PLEASE DON'T SEND***********
ATC's I am not a fan of digital atcs. I am not a fan of hand drawn/painted atc's unless you are good and a true talented artist! 'Good' meaning that you have been doing it for awhile and it comes out better than children's artwork-LOL! Good means that you have gotten plenty of nice comments about your work over the years, not just from your family. I can't draw worth beans, so I don't subject my partner to it. However, if you are a true talented artist, I will love it, so please don't hesitate to send me your LOVELY HD/HP artwork!
I dislike most abstract art, sorry.

slippers/socks/gloves (unless handmade)
religious items, crosses(angels okay)

preservatives/sucralose and other artificial sweeteners
Rubber Stamps, Cricut, Papercrafting--punches, cardmaking, etc, ATC's, crocheting, knitting, gardening, cooking, everything Martha Stewart(sorry). I can sew but don't like to much anymore other than quick and easy machine or handsewn projects.
===================================== HAPPY MAIL DAY!
About ratings.....I rate on the quality of your work and if you have put time, effort and love into it and whether it fulfilled swap requirements. I give hearts if I think the overall swap was extra special, NOT just because extra items are tucked in. I don't expect extra items. If your ATC is basic, you may not get a heart just because you sent extras.
I am pretty easy going on the deadlines. If you need more time, just let me know! I understand that life gets in the way and would rather wait and get a well made item than get something that was quickly made.
