I have spent many years here trading ATCs and I have taken many breaks. I am usually active for several months before the negativity found in the forums drives me away...
But I keep coming back because I enjoy making and sending off my art in the form of small trading cards.
I cannot draw or paint. Most of my designs are worked on a computer. GIMP is a great (and free) graphics program that I use to create the images I use for my wood and metal work. My "art" is more in the techniques I use to make my cards...
I rate every swap I receive. If you do not get a rating, it is because I did not receive it. I do not rate a 1, as I assume you sent it and the post office lost it, which is not your fault. Rating a 1 on good swapper causes too much stress and everyone else takes care of the flakers anyway.
I do angel every swap I host, as I enjoy sending more than receiving.
I enjoy receiving any and all ATCs. My binder is very diverse...
If I had to choose, I prefer these themes:
People, Men, Women
Or whatever you do best.
