About Me

Australia is in lockdown with international mail at a standstill. Hopefully we can all reconnect on the otherside. Earlier this year I had major surgery after a very debilitating medical episode late last year. 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 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.

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 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.

Comment: Thank you for the wonderful ATC, Bev! I had to laugh at the snarky sentiment you used as I used the same phrase on one of my ATCs for this swap! It's always fun to get swaps from you!

Comment: What a beautiful piece, Bev! Vibrant color, gorgeous layered papers. The gold embossing is beautifully over the top! I love every bit, but I think my favorite part is the included message - "sometimes you just have to take chances." Thank you for a true collector's piece, beautifully done.

Comment: Thanks for this absolutely gorgeous ATC! It's perfect! I have a friend in French Guiana who brought up an Olive Parrot, and that birdie is quite the character! He loves to sing and dance to music and wants to be involved in everything. Stay safe and healthy! We are enjoying our fall. Hugs from Alaska, Sherry

Comment: Hi Bev! So much fun to receive mail from you once again. This tag took its time getting here (thanks, no doubt, to Covid) but it is absolutely gorgeous. I love that sweet girl and all the beautiful embellishments behind her. Her wings are gorgeous and everything just works together perfectly.

Comment: Sorry I didn't rate this sooner. I was cleaning off the surfaces in my craft room today and I found the wonderful Journal cover you created for me. I remember receiving it and then I must have got interrupted (or had a senior moment) that I didn't rate you right away! Anyway-thanks very much-love all the details. Been warm here lately and then some thunderstorms at night. We are staying well and safe here-not going out much. Hope all is well with you-guess winter is coming to an end there. Take Care and again thanks!

Bev, thank you so, so much for the wonderful assortment of laces, ribbons, and trims...you are a wonderful Fairy Godmother; I treasure every bit of it!

Bev, I absolutely love the way you decorated my puzzle pieces -- thank you so much!

missxkay on Sep 3, 2014:

Received your puzzle pieces today. Will get working on them. :)

hazelwitch3 on Aug 23, 2014:

Hi! I put my puzzle pieces in the postbox yesterday afternoon -- hopefully they went out last night but if not, they'll definitely get picked up this morning. I was going to enclose them in a card -- but they were at the edge of the postage band and adding a card would have added a pound (around $1.77 AU) to each envelope so I carefully removed the card from each envelope! I'm really looking forward to decorating other people's puzzle pieces and to receiving mine back. A fun swap!

Hi Bev - puzzle pieces on their way to you! xx Dee
