About Me

I'm a 41 year old woman happily shacked up with the man of her dreams. I am a devoted daughter caring for an aging parent, a business owner and full time phlebotomist. I work hard and play hard. What's my definition of playing? I love hitting the trails whether it's in my hiking boots or our CanAm Maverick X3, scrapbooking, painting and playing in my art journals. I enjoy spending time with my partner watching movies, talking, traveling, daydreaming or working on our business.

I'm thrilled to be here at SwapBot, I've met lots of wonderful swappers and recieved LOADS of amazing goodies. The people here have been good to me and I'm always THRILLED to find a new package in my box.

Favorite Television

If I find a free moment of time to watch TV I enjoy watching home improvement shows, Animal Planet ANYTHING and ID Channel.

Favorite Crafts

Collages, ATCs, Altered Journals and Books, Dabbling in painting and Scrapbooking.

Favorite Music

Metallica, Disturbed, Ozzy, Nickleback, OffSpring, Allanah Myles

Things I'd like to Receive





Anything Vintage or Americana

Game pieces (flat as possible), BINGO cards

Lace, Fibers, Yarn

Ephemera, Ephemera, EPHEMERA (any & all)

Music Sheets

Stamps, Inks, Crackle Paints


Note Cards and Journal Cards


Misc. Favorites

Colors: Purple, Turquoise and Greens

Color Combos: Pink/Brown, Blue/Brown

Collecting: Anything Beachy


A few things I DO NOT want in swaps:

Cat Anything (Not a cat person)

Teas (but I do like the wrappers they come in)

Food (Can't always get my mail the day it arrives)

Experimenting With

Altered Books and Journals!!! I would love to do another Round Robin swap. I would also appreciate any type of collage material that comes my way.

Curious about Whimsy Jars, I love anything whimsical so this might be interesting.

Liquid Water Color- Still trying to find some of this stuff. I would also like to play with Water Color Crayons (send me your little stubby left overs LOL)

How I Rate

I thought I should add this since I've recently had a rash of flakers & no sends, so if you're one of "THOSE" here's what you can expect:

Three weeks from the send date I will contact you to let you know I haven't received your swap. If you reply and stay in contact with me I will give you a fair rating when the swap arrives (I do take into consideration you being in contact with me and will most likely still give you a 5 once the item arrives, so long as it meets the other swap requirements).

Four weeks after the send date if I've heard nothing from you, you will receive a 1. I DO understand that life happens and I'm ALWAYS willing to change a rating if I receive your swap.

For those who DO send on time, I ALWAYS give 5's so long as you sent me the correct swap LOL. If you send me ANYTHING above and beyond you'll get a Heart as well.

I ALWAYS give Stars to coordinators, I mean seriously, if she came up with an idea for a swap and I like it enough to sign up... she's earned her Star.

urquhart rated for Halloween Series ATC-Witch on Oct 30, 2009
Comment: I'm rating you a 3 because you basically cut out a picture and pasted it onto an ATC-sized piece of card stock. Sorry, but that isn't creative or artistic. I checked with the swap hostess and she told me I was entitled to rate you a 3. Next time please think more about the spirit of the swap and put more effort in.
Response: I'm very sorry you didn't like the card I made for you. I didn't realize we were being rated on artistic talent. I'm sorry I didn't respond to this sooner, I've meant to because I wanted to offer to make another card for you if you please.
Comment: Thank you for the ATC!

Easy Profile Quote #23

The humans kidnapped and drugged me. I awoke to find myself on their private yacht, heading south to an unknown destination.

The human says she is glad the rains are over. He lawn looks beautiful.

As I told you in my last message, we got jobs as models. The humans for which we work are the ones for whom we have searched. We have successfully infiltrated their operation. Who knows what will happen next. Etele

Oh, and the human says 'Happy Spring.'

Hello. Can you believe Easter and April fools day is on the same day? I keep thinking it’s a joke. Haha

What’s your opinion?

Carolyn, This is a great ATC! Thank you so much. I love the painted over text background. Everything is very nice. (and you don't have to send another one--this one is great!) Thanks for swapping. Happy Holidays, Vee
