I AM OUT OF STATE FOR MY MOTHERS FUNERAL. IF YOU ARE MISSING SOMETHING THAT WAS NOT RECEIVED OR HAVE A QUESTION, PLEASE KNOW THAT I WILL BE AWAY FROM SWAPBOT FOR A FEW DAYS AND WILL RESPOND TO ANY QUESTIONS OR RESOLVE ANY ISSUES WHEN I RETURN THIS WEEKEND. THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING. SEE YOU ALL IN A FEW DAYS.
IF THERE IS SOMETHING YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED FROM ME, PLEASE MESSAGE ME BEFORE RATING. I WILL RE-SEND ASAP!
I AM ALMOST DONE AND CAUGHT UP ON ALL MY RATINGS, I HAVE THREE SWAPS THAT WERE NOT RATED? PLEASE KNOW, I DO NOT CARE ABOUT THE RATINGS, THE ONLY REASON I CHECK IS TO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE RECEIVED. I HAVE THREE ONE TO TWO STAMP SWAPS NOT RATED? I WILL BE MESSAGING YOU TO MAKE SURE IT IS BECAUSE YOU HAVENT GOT AROUND TO RATING? IF YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED, PLEASE LET ME KNOW THAT IN THE MESSAGE ALSO?. NOW THAT MY LIFE HAS CALMED, WITH CHANGES, I AM BACK TO A POINT TO WHERE I WILL BE ABLE TO FOLLOW UP SOONER AND RATE AS THINGS COME IN. I WILL START FOLLOWING UP, AS PER MY USUAL, TEN DAYS AFTER SENT TO BE SURE YOU RECEIVED. YOU CAN EXPECT NO FURTHER "HICCUPS" FROM ME GOING FORWARD. I WANT TO THANK EVERYBODY FOR THE UNDERSTANDING OF MY SITUATION. THE LAST THREE MONTHS HAVE BEEN TURBULANT, TO SAY THE LEAST.
JUNE 3, 2020-SWAPS AND RATINGS ****Hi to all my swapbot friends and future swappers. Late last week, we had to take my mother off of life support. It has been a long road since my moms initial stroke. I kept her home due to COVID (as the nursing homes are a COVID hub) and was caring for her post-stroke. Ultimately, a series of multiple strokes won. We have had my mom cremated and are waiting for COVID and the riots to settle so that we can have a service for her.
CATCHING UP ON RATINGS: I am from Hopkins/Minneapolis, MN. During the time I was with my mom during her multiple strokes to the end of my moms life journey, my city was burning down. I have just recently returned home to Minneapolis, MN. I am working on getting caught up on my ratings and PLEASE if you have not received a swap from me and you have given a little time, please message me ASAP and I will re-send and make it right.
ON A SIDE NOTE: our mail was delayed for a few days with no delivery and some mail has been completely lost. The Minneapolis Post office that was was burnt down and looted during the riots was a main hub for Minneapolis mail. Because of this, in return, I will message you if I dont receive a swap. It is most likely way far delayed or lost. I will not rate without being in touch with you. I would appreciate the same courtesy. Thank you.****
Hi:-) I am a mixed media, steampunk, grungy, shabby chic with a vintage twist sort of gal. I enjoy anything by Ranger. This includes Dylusions and Tim Holtz products. I also like Finnabar products and love to work with any type of mixed mediums including Gesso's. On the Whimsical/mystical side of things, I like unicorns, fairies,mermaids and dragons. I like Alice In wonderland ephemra (old style by Lewis Carrol), I usually order bits and pieces of ephemera on Etsy.....I enjoy making cards, working in my mixed media journal, altered art as well as making pocket letters and ATC cards;-) I like vintage colors in teal, kraft stock brown, reds, etc. I like using pastels on winter themes, easter and summer crafts. On the flip side I enjoy working with jewel tones;-) Neons. (neons have a time and a place in my opinion; and that is the 80's). However, i will work with neons on an appropriate theme; -) I'm an equal opportunity crafter. Lol. Purple and teal are my favorite colors. I am a non-smoker, non-smoker swaps please. :-). On a side note, I have a GG TN-A4 planner ;-)
A little bit about my swap history: I participate regularly in a handful of swap groups on facebook. I enjoy swapping and getting to know new people and enjoy sending and receiving original crafts. I enjoy getting new ideas from swaps. Everybody has their own unique creative style. Over the eight years I have been swapping, I have made many friends and look forward to making more:-) Happy crafting!
I enjoy mostly rock, but like country as well. I do three music festivals every summer with my husband of 25 years. I enjoy rockfest, country fest and Winstock music festival. I also go to concerts in general here and there.
I am married, 25 years, a mother of two children, a boy and a girl, ages 20 & 21. I am a nurse practitioner, as I enjoy working with and helping people. My most recent job has been working with kids with Autism and PDD. I have worked in cardiology, endocrinology, psychiatry and general ER over the past 22 years.
I don't do much reading these days. In the past I have enjoyed reading Stephen King, John Grisham and the Harry Potter series.
Midnight In Paris, Serendipity, ELF
My husband and I like to pick different series from netflix. We are currently watching Schitt$ Creek.
Pocket letters, ATC'S, Mixed media, Cards,Junk Journals, Altered objects, altered books
I am always on the look for a new crafty obsession :-) :-) :-)
