I have been really struggling the last 4 months after being put ona handful of pain medication which has affected every area of my life. I am now booked in for a total hip replacement early February.after which they say I wll be a new woman! Sadly a 3 rating was given to me in a group which I dont often swap in and while under medication sent out a late swap and did not fulfil all the swap reqirements. I do not have the strength to challenge the rating and my 1000+ 5s speak for themselves. i shall ensure I only swap with those I have built strong swap relationships over the years. Long story but we have all been there. Life just gets a little complicated. Anyways I am now retired (for now) so back into the crafting. Just sorting out all my stuff and getting organised. Looking forward to chatting soon.
Victor Harbor, South Australia is a very long way away from the rest of the world...next stop Antarctica! My swaps can sometimes take awhile to arrive and can also sit in a post box waiting to be stamped for awhile! Please do not panic if I have not rated your post for up to 6 weeks. ( Just received one in May posted late December) The postal system seems to be crawling at the moment. I am continually amazed at how reliable it is given the distance from me to you.I have had the very occasional loss. The longest wait was 12 months! I have found patience to be a virtue so particularly if we are regular swappers I am not going to give you a bad rating but trust that it will get here one day. It's always great to communicate though so a quick message is appreciated if you are concerned and I do love a chat! I am a Mum and Wife who loves a crafty challenge.
Who would have thought a simple card would have started this 7 years ago. Nearly all my swaps have been with ATC and cards, mainly because of postage costs.
We live in an idyllic seaside town right down at the bottom of the world in South Australia. I have made some very special friends and swapped with some very gifted artists on here. Thank you to each and everyone! .
I appreciate anything people have put effort into. I am not good at freehand art ,drawing, painting but appreciate other peoples talents. I love vintage images. I prefer feminine, elegant, whimsical art. I like butterflies, birds, bird cages, candelabras. , flowers,. Some days I like vintage colors, the next Moroccan brights. I love new techniques..mixed media, embossing, spray inks, My latest love it embossing enamel. I love flowers on everything. My most expensive addiction is to Graphic 45 papers. I am trying to collect many of the discontinued papers.
I am a Breast cancer survivor. I have just had my 9 years since diagnosis and so far all good with the doctors starting to feel positive. One supportive husband who is the nicest human being I know. He is a model train layout fanatic and also collects old matchbox toys from the 50-70s. My daughter is a teacher and a talented henna artist. She is married but lives close by which is wonderful. My son is also at university doing a teaching degree and still lives with us.
Historical fiction, Family sagas.

No need to send extras. I have all I need ( exception...any morsel of Graphic 45 and or dresden scrap borders). Truly I have enough paper etc to stock several shops. I rate and give hearts firstly for effort and secondly because they are free and you can never be too kind ! My Christian values and faith are very important to me.However I am not judgemental or particularly opinionated. I believe in love and living at peace with all. I try to show respect and treat fairly all without judgement. I find that kindness and acceptance are easy to give and I enjoy bringing joy to others . Please do not send that which may offend. ( Wicca, Pagan, Violent, Ghoulish) I do enjoy "nice"halloween themes and fantasy.
