I'm a mixed media and doll Artist. I paint, sculpt in paper clay and polymer clay, I hand build ceramics and throw on the wheel. I also enjoy a little sewing and am learning to make quilts. I'm a business owner and a mom to 1 handsome US Marine and two beautiful teens. My husband is kinda awesome too. ;) We have 4 cats, 1 dog and 2 Sugar Gliders. If you have allergies to animals let me know and I will try my best to keep your swap dander free. I make sure swaps are completed and mailed on time. Most times, I mail early. If something comes up which prevents this, I will email my partner and give them a heads up.

I give hearts for heart being put into the swap, not because you threw in some extra stuff. I only participate (usually) in swaps where the swap is handmade. I put a lot of time and effort into each swap. I would rather you keep your extras and spend some more time on the swap to make it special. If you choose to throw in some extras anyway, just because, then I think that's really sweet of you. :)
If the postmark on the package is on or before the swap deadline, you will receive a five from me. If you put effort into it I'll also give you a heart and a glowing comment.
If the postmark on the package is after the swap deadline by more than 3 mailing days or the swap doesn't meet the swap guidelines, you will receive a three from me. This is not carved in stone as I may decide to still rate a five in certain situations.
If I have not received a swap package by the 15th mailing day after the swap deadline, you will receive a one from me. Should the package show up after I rate you with a postmark that was on or before the deadline, I will change your rating to a five. If it arrives after I rate you with a postmark after the swap deadline, I will change your rating to a three.
My favorite colors are aqua, grey and cream I collect miniature owls, tiny bisque dolls under 2 inches tall and wood carved birds. I love coffee! My style is part farmhouse, part cottage mixed with just a dash of shabby chic. I'm totally a cat person (but don't tell my dog).
My Least Favorite Colors are yellow and orange (unless in Halloween theme)
Food items, tea, religious stuff, stickers, scrapbooking supplies, teddy bears, socks, stationary, swap cards, postcards, perfumed anything, stuff that smells like cigarettes.
These are some things that annoy the crap out of me.....
Please spare me the "Oh it must have gotten lost in the mail" speech. I have been buying and selling online for the last four years and of the 600+ items that have been shipped either to me or from me, ALL OVER THE WORLD, not a single package has ever gone missing.
I find it hard to believe that only swappers on Swap-bot have their mail go missing.
If you are one of those swappers who just slap stuff together without any care or pride in your work, I will call you out! I realize not everyone has the same abilities or talents. All I ask is that you put effort into it and do YOUR best. I can clearly tell when someone tries and when they don't. Take pride in what you attach your name to. If you can't be proud of it, don't send it.
Please, please, please air out or wash items before sending them to me if you are a smoker. I absolutely hate the smell of cigarettes. I have received several swap packages that I had to air out for a week or more before I could enjoy the hard work that was put into creating the swaps.
After reading all of this, you might be thinking that I'm kind of a grouch, but I'm not. I'm actually really laid back. I've done A LOT of swaps over the years on various platforms and these things have occurred more than I'd like.
