About Me

About my 3 ratings: These swaps were mailed on time, which my partner/host said she never received. When I found out she didn't receive these swaps, I re-sent them. She has since received these re-sends and rated me 3s for these swaps...PLEASE NOTE, mail all my swaps out on time. IF you don’t receive a swap from me, please let me know. I follow Swap-Bot etiquette by contacting my partner if I am missing a swap, and giving them a chance to re-send before rating. I appreciate when others give me the same courtesy.....Thank you so much

Since June 2020, I have been sending swaps through my work mailbox instead of leaving mail in my home mailbox for the postal person to pick up. I have noticed mail is getting to my partners in a more timely manner...

Hello. It's nice to "meet" you. My name is Kim and I'm a 49 year old mom of three. Tyler is 13, Hailee is 11 and Jaime (boy) is 5. Besides being a proud Mom I am also an Optician extraordinaire and one of my passions is to help others. Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, we moved to Washington State in June 2015 to be with my amazing Sweetie, Ron, and his 3 amazing kids (Rachel, 21, Randy 19 and Ryan, 17). We also have 2 dogs and 2 cats. (Who ever thought that 3 kids could be a lot "quieter". lol) Our house can be very crowded at times with us blending our families. Things are going great! I feel very blessed!

Favorite Crafts

I am a "Craft-a-holic" and have been doing some type of craft since I was 7 years old. I love doing pages in deco books, sticker books, and making greeting cards and mail art. I like incorporating a sense of humor in my work. My style is sort of collage, but I also use rubber stamps or draw by hand at times. I have recently gotten into zines, pocket letters and homemade postcards

Swap Pledge

I send ALL of my swaps out ON TIME, so if you don't receive your package, please let me know...Also, if you are late with a swap you are sending me, please let me know....THANKS!

I rate my swaps the same day, or day after, I get them. If I haven't rated you, it means I haven't gotten your swap. I DO send messages for swaps I haven't received and try to give my partner a chance to re-send a swap before I give a "1" rating.


Comment: Ah - great memories for sure, but I hated the plastic costumes in a box - LOL! Always envied the kids who had handmade ones!

Thank you for your Poe card for the AMA:Mystery Supply swap. I love that you used the bird stencil to make the birds.

I don't know if you meant to send this to me or not, but I worked on it before I realized that it is from a group I'm not in.
