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: Thank you for the ATC. I didn’t care for Cracked Pistachio either at first, but ended up liking it after playing with it. What’s been good for me with these swaps is using up my Tim stash and playing with various techniques. Hope you’ll consider continuing with the series.
Response: I just got my partner’s Swap & am encouraged by seeing how interesting it can be! Thank you for your positive comments & I will be continuing in the series. Thank you, also, for the heart!

Comment: Thanks for the very cute cat drawing and also for the cute extras. I know I will be able to use them! Oh, yes, we have swapped several times before...most recently Beach Theme ATC in June and Watercolor ATC in May and ATC with a Cat in April. I think the most recent that I sent to you was Stack Swap last January. I have a couple of notebooks of all the swaps I join. A bit OCD I guess. Ha.
Response: Thank you for your kind comment & heart! I keep my swaps in 9-pocket inserts in notebooks, too. Love to look back & remember swaps.

Comment: This is my very first doodle-bombed PC and I believe the bar has been set high now, by your wonderful art! I L-O-V-E the dog that you added because it looks like my Kyna, and she (sometimes) lays with me right in that same location! So sweet! The glaze coating you finished with gives it a really nice texture too! Well done! A++
Response: That was fun to do! I had fun filling the bed—glad Kyna found her way onto the PC. Thank you for the heart & critique, it gives me inspiration!

Comment: Thank you for the gorgeous "Foxy" shaker coin. I'm intrigued by one of the RAKs: the spackled fabric screen. I'm thinking of try to do the same thing to the piece of tulle you sent. I'm always experimenting. lol
Response: This swap was a bit challenging, but fun. That piece of tulle I bought awhile ago in a roll. I’ll see if I can find a label on it & send you the info. Thank you for the heart & for being my partner.

Wishing you a safe and happy first day of winter!

HAPPY WINTER!

"I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, 'Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.'"

  • Lewis Carroll
