About Me

3/7/23 Today, I had a total of 2222 ratings of 5!

Jan 17, 2023---I have recently decided to start swapping again and I am trying to make up my low ratings. I am slowly getting back in and learning the site again. I am only doing flat mail until I get my swaps made up.

I've lived in Colorado since 1976. I have 2 boys and 2 grandsons. We have a rowdy Australian Shepherd named Chip and a black cat named Wilson (=^.^=).


I LOVE to garden, cook, papercraft, knit, crochet and some sewing.


ATCs and supplies--precut cardboard backings, papers, charms, stickers, flowers, jewels, lace, ribbon, feathers, any destash items.

I would love your finished destash ATCs, Skinnies, Inchies or Twinchies that don't fit into your collection if you are looking for a home for them :)

quality notecards, greeting cards, handmade envies

Flowers, Horses, Gardening, Nature Quotes

Beatrix Potter/Peter Cottontail, Red Ridinghood

Wizard of Oz, Dorothy, Toto, Lion, Witches

Three Little Bears, Hansel and Gretel

Cute Woodland Creatures--Owls, deer, rabbits, birds, mushrooms, cute mice, bears

All kinds of birds--owls, eagles, hawks,woodpeckers, hummingbirds, bluebirds, robins, bluejays, cardinals, blue heron, parrots, toucans, macaws.

Flat metal charms and flat or shaped buttons

Stickers LARGER THAN 1/2" (no Disney), especially flowers, butterflies, bees, dragonflies, jjewels, gold border stickers

Home colors/style----Earth colors/Tuscan

Jewelry colors---cream,red,blue,black,brown

ATC's--I like lots of embellishments and layers and very few stickers. I like ribbons and trims, lace, glitter, borders, metal charms, buttons, anything that adds dimension and appeal.


**********POSTCARDS************************ I really dislike abstract art! I really dislike black and white art! PLEASE WRITE LEGIBLY! It is very frustrating when I have to decifer the message. This means running letters together, rushed handwriting, etc. PLEASE PUT YOUR RETURN ADDRESS! This is because the postmark is rarely clear enough for me to tell where the card was sent from.
You will NOT get a heart if either of these things are missing. I always look for reasons to give hearts but I can no longer overlook these two things, sorry.

Cats, Dogs, Wildlife, Nature, Birds, Butterflies, Dragonflies, Flowers, Botanic and Gardens, Bees, Herbs, Colorful Landscapes/Scenery, Recipe, Mother w/child, Beautiful Women, Humorous, Mapcards, Tourist Attractions, Fairies, Quote cards, Garden/ Nature, Beatrix Potter/Peter Rabbit, Homemade(any). I like to see many different stamps on the PC's.

I'm NOT fond of City Scapes, Ad pc's,Weird/Twisted PCs, Abstract, Black and White.



ATC's I am not a fan of digital atcs. I am not a fan of hand drawn/painted atc's unless you are good and a true talented artist! 'Good' meaning that you have been doing it for awhile and it comes out better than children's artwork-LOL! Good means that you have gotten plenty of nice comments about your work over the years, not just from your family. I can't draw worth beans, so I don't subject my partner to it. However, if you are a true talented artist, I will love it, so please don't hesitate to send me your LOVELY HD/HP artwork!

I dislike most abstract art, sorry.

Magazine clippings and cutouts and anything made with them.

Notepads/Memo Sheets/Sticky Notes

Journal cards--I don't journal

Magnets(unless it's a cute animal or floral/gardening related)

slippers/socks/gloves (unless handmade)

religious items, crosses(angels okay)

tiny stickers/reward stickers/ cheap looking stickers

foam stamps and stickers

erasers or highlighters

Disney items

preservatives/sucralose and other artificial sweeteners

lavendar scent


Favorite Crafts

Rubber Stamps, Cricut, Papercrafting--punches, cardmaking, etc, ATC's, crocheting, knitting, gardening, cooking, everything Martha Stewart(sorry). I can sew but don't like to much anymore other than quick and easy machine or handsewn projects.

===================================== HAPPY MAIL DAY!


About ratings.....I rate on the quality of your work and if you have put time, effort and love into it and whether it fulfilled swap requirements. I give hearts if I think the overall swap was extra special, NOT just because extra items are tucked in. I don't expect extra items. If your ATC is basic, you may not get a heart just because you sent extras.

I am pretty easy going on the deadlines. If you need more time, just let me know! I understand that life gets in the way and would rather wait and get a well made item than get something that was quickly made.


Comment: Thank you very much for my Snoopy card.
