About Me

Update - 3/21/2012 For any hostesses that have issues with the 3 one's that I received over a yr and a half ago I want to let you know that I did not purposely sabotage my ratings. I sent the items and the swappers never rec'd them. I am truly sorry if this puts you in a position where you choose not to have me in your swap. I am currently trying to repair the damage that has been done, by trying to get in touch with the 3 swappers that gave me one's and to resend to them. Also, the reason I am back swapping at SW is because I really enjoy this site and I would like to bring my ratings up again and be a worthy swapper again.

If you have any questions about my ratings, please send me a private msg or an email. Thank you!***

Hi my name is Darlene and I live in Massachusetts. I am a single mom. My dd is a teenager. I have been making cards for 6 years. I swap on a couple of sites and I just love paper and embellishments. I have just recently started getting into the ATC phase and am really enjoying making them. I hope to swap on here as well.

My fave color combos: red/brown, brown/pink, black/pink, brown/teal, brown/light blue, black/red

Blue is my favorite color with pink in a close second.

I love bright colors and pastels.

My favorite embellishments: brads, ribbon, ric rac, die cuts, spiral clips, chipboard shapes/letters. I am getting into 6x6 recipes and love paper and embellishments that are food related.

My favorite holidays are Christmas and Halloween and of course my birthday (lol). Summer is my favorite season.

Thanks for the note on my profile! Looking forward to the Happy Swap, we do have a lot in common! I also used to collect cows (not on my profile as it got too out of control, LOL). My partner is a little tougher: vegan, yoga, go green, but it will make me have to think outside my box!

zurdoswifey on May 25, 2010:

Thanks for the compliment on my profile... I was worried ppl would be upset because it is so long and detailed... lol so its nice to know some actually like it
