About Me

Hey! Thanks for stopping by! On August 12 of 2019, I died. Thankfully someone stopped to help me. They preformed cpr for approximately 5 minutes, until the ambulance arrived. With 1 shock, I was back. I am so thankful! Only about 5% of people survive this kind of thing! It;s called Sudden Cardiac Arrest. If you are a survivor, please share your story with me. I'm still recovering, but my prognosis is good. Only this week (10/30/19 ) was I able to complete a small piece of art. Yay me! I'm not worried, it'll come, I mean art, It's in my blood. I'm looking forward to a second chance at life. Thanks for reading!

Also if you're into zines, please share! I'm very easy to please. We've met some really great swappers! This is a wonderful place.

About Me

Doors, architecture Mail art I'm not fussy, but I do want you to put some work into it. I like beads, buttons, dodads and glitter. I love washi tape. I like playing cards. .Favorite movies, Gone with the wind, It's a wonderful life, Moonrise Kingdom (I highly recommend, if you haven't seen it) Vintage. Architecture, doors, houses. Junk Gypsy style. Paper, October Afternoon, Graphic 45. Old paper, dictionary, maps. Mystery. I like browns, pinks, greens. Favorite artists: Remington, Charles Russel, Vangogh, Edward Curtis(photographer) I like gnomes!

About Me

I live with my wonderful husband of 46 years, and have 7 children and 18 (and have a new one on the way ❤️It's a BOY! arrived Aug 4, 2022) grandchildren (7 years ago we welcomed 4 new girls to our family!). We (my husband and I ) are both very artistic. We love to work on projects together. 3-31-22 please if you live near water, I have a sand collection! If you can, just a small bag with the name of the beach and the date. Thank you so much for the friendship I have here on swap bot!!!

Important

I always rate! If you don't receive, please let me know. I want you to be happy! Also if I don't add enough postage let me know. I try to add more than I need, Thanks! Also, If I haven't rated you, I may not have received something. I also hate giving anything less than a 5. Honestly, I know there's a need for the messages section, but to me it's like email (I hate it) So if you're trying to get my attention, put a note on my wall. Sorry that you have to reach me that way. I have been trying to look at them more often.

My 3 rating

Hi, I have a 3 rating..... I admit I forgot one element of the swap, a list of things I liked about Christmas. I did not flake. (Plus it cost 7$ to send!) I sent the swap, my partner did not like what I sent. She said she was very disappointed. I guess I was too. Live and learn. Plus, she didn't give me the chance to make it right.

Please look at my ratings section. I think you'll see most people have been happy with what I've sent. Thanks.

About Me

I love all forms of art, but especially paper/mixed media art. I have taken classes by Melody Ross/Brave Girls Club. I've done alot of different crafts, from sewing my girls dresses(as children) to painting (now). I live in Minnesota! I don't read very much, except my Bible and devotional. Also, If you're into zines,I would love for you to share one. You may receive one from me!

Comment: Hi Star! I love the vintage pc that you found at the antique mall! I am always on the look out for them, as I NEED more pcs! LOL! Just ask my family and friends! LOL! They would like to do an intervention but I am in denial that I have THAT many pcs! LOL! I want to visit the pool on your pc as it is just so cool! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Thank you so much! It was fun looking at the boxes of them! It was hard to limit myself as they were only 50 cents a piece!

tHANK YOU for the striking contribution to my LEMON zine!

Star, your Moon Zine-Go-Round is finished and I dropped it in the mail today to go back to you. I think you'll be happy with the results. This was the first zine go round I've finished. It was great to be the last person. I got to see the original finished product. :)

BTW, I ‘borrowed’ your idea and also put all of my fall favorites on slips of paper in the pocket letter I sent out. Thanks for such a great idea; I really enjoyed thinking about what I’ve loved about fall in the past. :) <3
