About Me

PLEASE NOTE: I try to get my swaps done as soon as I sign up because I sign up for so many. Therefore, they do not reflect partner preferences as partners are not assigned until weeks later. I don't sign up for profile swaps for this reason.

Please don’t feel you must include extras in our swaps. Your awesome creative art is enough to make me happy and is the base for my rating.

I take my membership in the groups I belong to or have created very seriously. The founders/coordinators/officers of these groups work very hard to think of swaps, vet participants, and troubleshoot any problems. I do my best to support them by signing up for swaps and being available to host when needed.

I create upstairs & receive mail downstairs. I rate on the day I receive swaps (or the next day at the latest) & after rating, place the swap on the dining room table to go up & be entered in my swap journal. If you’re missing a rating, I’m missing your swap. Please pm me so I know you will resend.

I have never, nor will I ever flake on any swap I undertake. If I find, by some cruel twist of fate, that I cannot complete a swap by its deadline, I will notify you & the coordinator to obtain a mutually agreeable solution. I would appreciate it if you have any problems with or do not receive any of my swaps that you notify me so I may rectify the problem. I promise to do the same for you.

Thank you for allowing me to participate in this wonderful creative journey with you!

Comment: I must have forgotten to click on “save ratings”! Oh how I love this beautiful gypsy dancer and her gorgeous scarves…there’s a sense of freedom and abandon that I have never experienced. Your artwork always takes me “there”, and “there” is different in each little piece of art. That’s a gift, my friend…thank you for sharing your gift with your swap partners!

Comment: Oh, my goodness, thank you so much for sending me an orange ATC. At first, because of the way all the other items settled I thought you had sent two ATCs. Thank you for the lovely lovely swap. It lifted my heart.
Response: I am glad it brought you some enlightenment. I love the warm color of orange & figured you must be mired in snow & would like something bright. Thank you for the heart.

Comment: Di, it is always such a pleasure to receive a swap envelope from you...I feel a sense of anticipation as soon as I see the envelope! Thank you for always sending such lovely little works of art...you are an amazing swap partner (and friend!). I had to let Bella go to sleep at the end of February. I was heartbroken and terrified to lose her...but I had to think of her comfort and quality of life which diminished by the day. And strangely (or not, actually), as soon as she was gone, I felt as if a heavy weight had been lifted from my heart. I think it was her way of telling me that she loved me, and thanked me for making that decision. I have an appointment at the Oregon Humane Society tomorrow, to meed an 8-year-old kitty named Kiki, who has been there so long that her adoption fee has been reduced to $25. My heart (and Mme. Cocopuff's heart) need her, and I believe that Kiki might need us, too. Mme Cocopuff has never been an only cat, and she is showing signs of depression...she is only awake about an hour each day. Maybe I'm forcing human emotions onto her little kitty heart, but I don't think so. I think we each have a Kiki-sized hole in our hearts. I will let you know how it plays out!
Response: My dear friend, I got a telepathic msg. that things were not hunky dory in OR. So sorry to hear Miss Bella has left you & Mme. Cocopuff, but you gave her a good life & she is now at peace. I hope all goes well with Kiki—it sounds like you all need each other—perfect!! Looking forward to hearing how it all goes. Thank you for the heart & your friendship!

Comment: Dianne, Such a lovely and creative ATC that you sent. I love watercolor, but can’t seem to make it work. Thank you for an excellent swap.
Response: I’m not too good @ watercolor, either, sometimes the w/c pencils are better & sometimes I use the pan colors. So good to swap with you again. Thank you for the heart.

Comment: What a wonderful spring ATC and I did find the frog. He is a great addition to the ATC. Its been a rough winter here too. Not a lot of snow but the temps go from one extreme to the other. Can't wait for spring to arrive this year.
Response: It’s been a good winter here, but I’m just worried the summer will be beastly hot/humid. Thank you for the feedback & the heart!

I love the textures you always include on the return ATC. You rocked my ATC and once again, this is one ATC I am going to look to for inspiration!! I love the Japanese women in a kimono robe - so Madame Butterfly.
