About Me

Updated 7/29/21

Please be aware that I am no longer doing craft swaps other than the types listed below. Please do not send me any craft supplies; however you can still send me washi tape and stickers which I use to send cards. Thank you!

Everyone please stay safe during this difficult time.

I will no longer be doing the number of swaps that I used to do. I used to do 20 swaps every month. I have made a decision to cut back on a permanent basis. I'm not getting any younger and cannot do as much as I used to do. I hope everyone understands.

I am a founder or co-founder in the following groups. If you are interested in any of these groups, please send a request to join. Thank you! I won't be posting swaps in all these groups on a monthly basis as I used to. I hope everyone understands.
