About Me

12/29/19 Here is my new story. Within 36 hours, I was told that I had breast cancer,had my hand surgery and developed Guillian Barre Syndrome. GBS lest me paralyzed from the neck down, I am slowly recovering. My hands are not back to normal, I think doing swaps is going to help

The stencil card/envelope is pretty and thank you for the stencils of the birds on book pages. I'll enjoy using those. Wonderful swap. Glad to have you as my partner. Blessings to you, Kathy

Comment: thank you for sending 2 ATC coins :) they are lovely. I also enjoy the notecard you made and the extras :) thank you!
Comment: Ellie, I received your DIY postcard and I think it's beautiful! The colors you chose go so well with the background colors and I love the way the word 'creative was in different symbols. Thanks also for enclosing it in the clear plastic; so many times, the postcards I receive have a scrape right in the middle of the image (I guess from the postal machines) and it really affects the picture. With the covering you put on it, although the plastic had a bit of damage, the postcard itself was in perfect condition. Thank you so much for a great swap!!
