I will be taking a break from swap-bot starting February 1st. I will get the 3 swaps I am in done and mailed out by then. I need to take a break to refill my creative well as it is nearly empty.
The ones on my account belong to two people who are not currently on swap-bot nor have they been for many years. If they ever come back I'll make good on those swaps.
The 3's are from swaps I've made up and a few that are from an old account I recently integrated into this one, they are also many years old.
I am a mother, a grandmother, an aunt, a god parent and a cousin. I live in Ontario in a small city and have lived here off and on for 38 years.
A few years ago I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Dysthmia.
The dysthmia I knew about for a long time; depression, especially one that never goes away completely even after 40 odd years is pretty obvious to even the dumbest bunny.
The fibro was unexpected I just figured the pain was part of being over 50 and obese.
The two of them together mean I have my good days and my bad ones. So please, please check with me before you rate me down as I do not do my best work on my bad days and will gladly redo something if it isn't pleasing to you.
I also rate the day I receive a swap, so if you check and you haven't been rated, then I haven't seen it yet.
There has been issues in 2017 of mail taking an incredibly long time to reach its destination mostly between Canada and the USA but a couple of times to overseas destinations as well. I always allow 8 weeks for something to arrive. If it hasn't contact me.
I am looking forward to swapping with you!
1950's to present with a strong preference for " Meatloaf", "Simon & Garfunkel", "AC DC" and similar music.
80's dance music to get me moving and Dan Gibsons Solitudes to help me relax.
Cozy Mysteries are #1 expecially when the hero is a heroine.
Fantasy particularly paranormal mysteries and adventures
I'll read most any fiction as long as it has something of the unusual in it.
Anything done by Tim Burton and if Johnny Depp is in it that only makes it better.
The Guardians of the Galaxy is a new favourite, the characters are so strange.
That actually sums things up nicely, if it is strange or animated chances are I will have seen it or plan to see it as soon as I can.
I am a Netflix member and I love most of their series. I also like things like Supernatural and Walking Dead.
I have tried many crafts through the years but the three I keep coming back to are Artist Trading Cards, Miniatures (dioramas not room boxes), and Doll making in many forms.
I have a set of altered fashion dolls which represent the seasons and another set that represents the elements. I am about half way finished with them
I have a pumpkin diorama that is awaiting the right tenants and am working on a fairy garden with my landladies day care kids.
