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 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 will rate promptly. 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 adore your Thanksgiving Hats ATC! Great work! I know what you mean about keeping crazy-busy. Summer seems to go on forever (I hate the heat), and fall tends to fly by. Hard to believe Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away.
Response: I enjoyed creating them & am so happy they pleased you! Yep, time is still speeding by and I hate the heat, too. Humidity just wrings me out. Thank you for the heart & I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving 🍗

Comment: Ohh, thank you, how beautiful! I like how the leaves are from candy wrapper, it's such a good idea, and I like seeing something used that is not originally meant for crafting. And, I like also how you made the background in many levels, and the wind, I got so many ideas from this <3.
Response: I am thrilled that I inspired you! Thank you for your kind comments and fro the heart!

Comment: Thanks for my zetti postcard. He looks very solemn. I am glad you looked before sending ATC as I didn't and sent an ATC oops. I would not have minded .elflady

Comment: The re-send arrived almost completely intact. Just one bite out of the beard of your comical collaged face. (Postal machinery is relentless!) The guy who bagged my groceries today looked so much like your portrait it was scary!
Response: Sorry the machine bit the beard—I thought I put enough sealer on it. Machine 1; PC 0. I hope you never get the “handsome” bagger again—the stuff nightmares are made of! Thank you for being my partner and for the heart!

Comment: Thanks for another great ATC to add to my collection! I love your #7, very unique. And you’re right, the higher in #’s we go it makes us think outside the box to work it out. Thanks also for doing the make up swap with me too. I’m glad I will have full set. ❤️ Love the extra ephemera you added, too.
Response: You are so welcome! I am so glad you didn’t miss out on #7. Thank you for the heart.

Comment: Whenever I open my mailbox and see a kraft paper envelope with the most AMAZING calligraphy-like handwriting, I know it's from you and it's going to be special. And I'm never wrong! The betwinchies, of course, are beyond adorable, and your backgrounds are simply beautiful! Have I mentioned that you are the absolute Queen of small, fabulous extras? You certainly are; I can't get enough of your little treats. Thank you for another fabulous swap, from inception to delivery!
Response: Thank you for the glowing review, my swap friend! I struggle over what I’m going to send for extras more than anything else I include, as I don’t have a lot to choose from. I love when you send me your art, too. Wish we were close enough to play in each other’s studios—what fun that would be!

Mother is an undying love, a love beyond compare, the one you take your troubles to, she is the one who really cares. You are all of this and more. So glad we’re moms, it’s one more sweet thing to share.
