I am fairly new here, I got started because I am an artist on canvas and I also do trades a with ATC"S (artist trading cards) I have so much fun and make so many friends from all over the world. I love to create with paint and gift them. I am married and I work in a deli cooking. Hard stressful job so it will be fun to come home and get on here and have fun. Oh and I have two dogs and a cat and I live in the country side of Georgia. USA. PS I also love to read and swap books too.
I love cats, dogs, steampunk, anything to do with beaches, garden, marshland,coastal water ways, homemade bracelets. I love writing snail mail, never know when you could brighten someones day. I love book markers, homemade works of art. more special meaning. I love the old art, Monet, Picasso, etc. I love international trades of any sorts, I LOVE teas and coffee, anything related to them also. Also anything you hand make yourself I consider to be a heartfelt gift. I love scraps of paper and small loose stickers, no problems there!
I also have a several physical conditions that are quite a challenge to me, such as fibroymyalgia , scoliosis and arthritis, Art is a form of therapy for me, its gets me out of bed so I can get motivated and move around. And also run down the the post office!! I enjoy relaxing by looking at ideas for art for my ATC's. and color ideas/mixtures. ALso curling up in bed with my heating pad and a good book or my tablet. I have one dog Daisy who is my nurse and comes checks one me every so often. There are days I get down, but just moving around with a purpose helps...and so many groups to see on here!!! SOmany ideas I have! But first I have to get my ratings up! ANd I'm doing that right now!!
I am not picky! I am open to whatever you send. It so nice to get back to snail mail. I love sending out letters, gifts and trades. I love all colors(guess cause I am artist.) I love dollar store stuff!! LOL Anything with cats and dogs gives me a smile. If you don't receive something from me message me and I'll fix it!!
I am a Christian so I love inspirational stuff. I love any kind of stickers and washi tape. Blank ATC cards are always useful! I also love fuzzy socks.
My favorite crafts are anything to do with painting. I am very intrigued by colors and how people react to them. How they catch peoples eyes. And peoples reaction to one piece of art can very by many degrees. I want to learn how to blend the right colors together. Im being drawn to acrylic abstract. I don't like bright colors, I like dark greens, grays, yellow ochre, and soft blues. when i receive an item from a trade, I can tell by the medium, colors and sayings the kind of person who sent it. I can almost see their "colors" I love seeing art from different eyes. And each trade is like that. An experience, a gift and a glimpse into another person.
I have so many books yet to read but here are my favorites: Laini Taylor- Daughter of Smoke and Bone series. Haldol and Hyacinth by Melody Moezzi (my Favorite) Oswald Chambers-My utmost for His Highest (Christian inspirational Everything by Dean Koontz and Nora Roberts! And Joyce Meyers
Everyone makes mistakes. Some letdowns are not intentional. If my swap is not up to your liking let me know in a cooperative way and I will fix. There may be times Im not quite up to par mentally and I mail mess up a swap. Please let me know so I can fix. I love this site, it gives me a purpose. ANd I am learning to do better at swaps. But being mean is something I dont understand, guess you can say Im soft skinned. Let me fix and Ill be on my way!! Thanks to all who uplift me and friend me! means so much!!
I have had 3 clerks at my little post office the past few months. Some of them are not putting the right postage, they dont even have a computer! She couldnt find Canada nor Malaysia! Just weigh scale to print postage out. SO I have already received one comment about postage due. SO if this happens let me know,
I know this group is not monitored for bullying or demeaning someone as Fb does. I will stay here until I am dismissed. But here in AMerica I am protected by the ADA (mental illness) and I have will protect myself from bullying as needed. If I make a mistake let me know, if the host does not feel comfortable hosting me let let know. If i am dismissed from group I understand. But until then my thoughts are with trying to make people happy with my art and I put my heart and soul into these trades, not to mention money for supplies and postage in USA and overseas. Please forgive my rant but as a disabled citizen I have my rights to protect myself. Thanks you guys!
