GREETINGS!

Not easily offended,

My goal is to hopefully get an insight into who you are and
to send you spot on swaps that make you smile! In a perfect swapping world, we are all kind and charitable..... Flaking is not in my DNA, so please message me if something goes amiss...... My favorite Artista Camilla D'errico

I love lowbrow art, big eyed girls and surrealism. I enjoy Postcard Penpals

I am very grateful for all your time and effort and $$ put into swaps for me!!

Thanks to all my Partners for such thoughtful swaps!!

Trying a new craft? Send it to me! I love to reward people for their effort, not just for skill or talent. If you've got heart, I'll give you a heart!

I promise to rate! Please, do rate me.....it is a polite acknowledgment. Almost like flaking if you don't. To complete the swapping experience you need to follow thru to the end!

Favorite Crafts

You don't have to spend your money on me! I love little bits from your stash- LOVE doll images.

I love weird clowns and Circus themes!

Would love Alice in Wonderland or Marie Antoinette images......

I love handmade. I have not mastered any type of needle craft...I dabble, but, embroidery, knitting, crocheting, lacemaking, felting, sewing, anything like that I LOVE but am not so good at! Love redwork!

But, I excel in glue! Anything I can glue is good. Maybe this explains my love of all things paper!

I LOVE Mail Art! Love it! If you get mail from me and it has one of those = ( post office labels...I apologize! Sometimes the cranky postal workers do not want to take the time to select stamps for me! I try to use interesting postage when I can. I LOVE anything Airmail or mail related, love our Ernie or swap-bot swag!

I also love the look of hand carved stamps. I have not done this yet but I now own one made by kayler00 and I hope soon to create my own.

Teesha Moore creator of Zettiology

**I love Zetti! ** Totally fabulous!!
My personality is multi-faceted and I am VERY eclectic in my tastes. I like music from country to classical, the only music I don't care for is the irreverent rap that disrespects women. I enjoy the History channel and Hallmark and everything in between .

Just an observation....

Regarding HEARTS: I have noticed that in about 1 out of every 4 swaps people do not give a heart. Particularly, some will never ever give a for a PC....... I personally think, especially with postcards, it may be difficult to make it 'extra special' in some peoples eyes, (Semantics here... an extra special 'package' for the literalists) but, many times...... If a person read my profile>heart.....tried to make it profile specific>heart......sent with care and a personal touch>heart........added a nice note, greeting, comment>heart........tried to send something nice within the boundaries of their own ability.....heart. It is noticeable at times that people are sloppy,rushed and obviously just trying to get the swap out at the last minute. God forbid I should do that to you. If I do, I don't deserve your heart.... I just want to be generous with hearts, assuming the sender did put effort into the swap. I will never withhold a heart or rate down because it is not my 'style'.
Additionally, I would not rate down a 'beginning' artist who is trying to find their way.....I will appreciate the uniqueness in us all and cheer you on for using your creative gift! I fully believe that even a postcard can have qualities that make it 'extra special'....Not only the handmade but store bought with a sincere message is extra special to me!

Also, should I be having a very painful day and your mail arrives serendipitously to me, brightening my day, making me smile or laugh or feel loved, well, that is worthy of a heart to me! I do understand, people have their own criteria for what is deserving of a heart.......and extras do not equal a heart. I have put my best into swaps (always read profiles and try to fit the swap to your likes) then not received a heart, so I have assumed the receiver did not recognize my efforts or they just have their own subjective criteria for a heart, which I did not meet. I misunderstood what they might enjoy. I really do try to be thoughtful when creating and sending. I put on my kindness hat when rating you and hope you will do the same.

I guess what I am saying is that I look for a reason to Give a heart rather than a reason to withhold one! My goal is to make my partner happy to receive things they can use or enjoy! Down off my soapbox now ............. = )
