12/15/2017: I have been in a whirlwind (like most of you) with the season - getting ready, buying gifts, planning get togethers -- and I have been behind by 1-2 days in getting my swaps out. Thank you to all of you who have graciously accepted their tardiness. I am back on track as of today and plan to keep up-to-date. I was in panic mode when I realized how many were due at the same time.
As we wind down this year, and start a new year, may your days be blessed with lots of art! and love! and kindness.
Best wishes this season, Annielou
12/1/2017: today is my 10-month Swap-Bot anniversary. Probably not a big deal to anyone else, but through my angel of a friend, Georgiafae, I have been enveloped in the SB world and it has brought me more happiness than I thought possible. I am making changes to my craft corner (we live in a very small house, but I WILL have my corner) this weekend and while I still do scrapbooking--swapping with all of you is my passion. The art you have shared with me are keepsakes. I can't join any swap unwanted ATC swaps, because I want to keep everything I have received (and part of the reason I need my corner-to store these pieces of art!) Please accept my thanks. You have earned my respect. you are artists, one and all.
I think I am a pacifist, an idealist (versus realist), peace loving, tree hugging, spiritually grounded middle aged woman.
I am a happy mother of 5 (blended family) with 9 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild. Crazy! I'm 61 years old and I love life. I've been a scrapbooker, a stamper, a knitter and NOW .. a swapper!
My second husband is a retired Methodist pastor. Faith is pretty important to us. organized religion has been hurtful to many people. I prefer a faith that encompasses all walks of life, all faiths, all people. I am criticized for that. but that's my truth.
Rock & Roll! Actually Im pretty diverse in my music listening but I do not like old fashioned country, nor do I like opera. I don't like rap.
A kid of the 60s and 70s, I like The Eagles, America, Dan Fogelberg, Journey, Styx, Aerosmith, Grand Funk Railroad, YES, Steppenwolf .. to name a few.
Todd Rundgren, Eric Clapton, Bruno Mars, Adele, Amy Winehouse, Maroon 5, seriously into most all types of music. Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Dan Fogelberg, Foreigner, Journey, Boston, etc.
