HELLO 😃 😋 😍 ..

I received mail from Ohio that was mangled en route! The only thing the post office was able to forward me was the front of the envelope and it had very little info as to who sent it. Whoever did, didn't even use a full name on the return address and it was very hard to read. Let me know if it was you and you're out there somewhere wondering if I got your mail!!

I'm Tara, 42 (making me the answer!?), and from Upstate New York. I had never done anything like this before finding swap-bot but I think it is pretty awesome! New to swapping and new to art in general too!

And just like that, I'm obsessed.........

♥ If what I sent wasn't enough or to your liking, I am truly sorry! I will always send what's required, at the very least, and on time. Occasionally a postmark might not match my send date because after I drop it in a big blue box I mark it sent and it is out of my hands at that point!! If for some reason you don't get what I have sent, please don't rate me down without sending a quick note. Communication is KEY. I will always make good on anything!

♥ I rate the day I open my mail; however I do not get mail from the post office every day and when I do, sometimes there is a lot!! If somehow I missed rating you, please send me a note and we will figure it out.

♥ I would never ever rate a 3 or 1 without communicating with you first, please give me the same respect.

♥ RAKs are harder to keep track of so I generally send them pretty promptly. If it has been awhile and you think you should have gotten something, just send me a message and we can work it out!

Favorite Crafts

Love all things artsy and craftsy!! I'm new to a lot but love learning new things and enjoy paper crafting, drawing, painting, abstract, pouring, collaging, lettering, scrapbooking, embroidery, cross stitch, weaving, string art.... I craft with acrylics, watercolor, markers, alcohol inks, yupo, ceramic, wood, paper, glass, stickers, rub-ons, inks, stamps, embossing, washi, and plan to try resin soon. I just got a cricut explore air 2 so I'm looking forward to all that can do! I also have a few jewelry making kits to try, a soap making kit and recently got equipment to try my hand at wood burning and metal stamping! Willing and eager to learn any new crafts or hobbies.

I'm starting a new project and need your help!
I bought a set of blank playing cards (blank backs/normal numbered faces) and I want them to be designed by YOU! If you are willing to design one or more cards, let me know! I will send you the cards (you can pick which if you have a preference) and when I receive the card back, I will send you some random bits or bobs or who knows!

Only rules are that they must be different so no repeat designs if you do more than one. Ex. if you do two cards they could both be butterfly theme but don't make them both the same color with the same sticker/drawing/words, etc. And please nothing negative/hateful and no politics or heavily religious please!

Comment: Hi Tara, Thank you so much for your generosity on this swap. I appreciate the state postcard, the notecard, the rub-ons, and other items. I know that all you sent will be used as I continue to swap. Over the last 3-4 months, I have met many new swappers to me. It has been Great Fun meeting so many new swappers. I am glad we have met and I hope we have more opportunities to swap. Happy Swapping!! Colorado is still having trouble with mail service both going in and out of the state. I ask for your patience and understanding. Please know that swaps are going out on timeless I contact you. As well, your swaps are getting to me, but your mail is getting here even though it might take a little more time. Barb sleepingrover2010

Thank you for the RAKs Only USA prize! The "pile of stuff" you said you were going to send really downplayed what I found in the envelope! Thank you so so much for the very generous supply of art supplies. Everything is fantastic and I'm very exciting to start creating with them.

Thank you for the Galentine's day RAK!
