Spoiler Alert!!

06/18/18 Headed out of the country to Ukraine for 3 weeks starting June 25th. If I owe anyone a rating, I'll catch up as soon as I get home! Art on!

01/22/2018 Just wanted to let everyone expecting a swap from me this past week up until today, it may be a few days late. Last week Houston shut down due to "ice" conditions! I'm serious! We can handle water here in Houston just not frozen water! 🤤I mailed everything out on time but might take a bit longer to have gotten out of Houston. I will resend if they don't show up... plz. just let me know prior to rating down.

9/2/17 Eeeeeeee spared by Harvey by the grace of God! Just wanted to let anyone that I may owe a rating to that it might be a few more days. Our neighborhood hasn't been cleaned of any household debris yet. Promise to rate as soon as possible. Not sure postman has even tried to deliver mail.

5/2/17 just wanted to let y'all know if I owe you a rating or a swap, I'll be returning home soon. My mom recently passed away after a long 10 year battle with Alzheimers. She is now resting peacefully in beautiful Colorado.

1/25/15 I'm back! Went cruising on the 18th & just got back today ;) I'm picking up my mail tomorrow so promise to rate all swaps that I receive. Sorry for worrying anyone... I hate that feeling of having a lost swap :/

7/27/14 I'm baaack but... headed out tomorrow until Aug 9th to NM to help my sister with my mom who has alzheiemers :( I should be able to get all my swaps out even if on the last day due.

7/17/14 I'm headed out of the country tomorrow on vacay for the next 10 days, so, I hope if you get me as a partner, you don't mind me mailing 1 or 2 days late. I believe I'm only in one swap where this might be the case. I will rate anything I receive as soon as I get home. Thanks y'all!

I pretty much put pictures of all my swaps on Flickr so just a heads up! If you want to be surprised, don't look :p

About Me

I've been married for 20 years to a wonderfully crazy man. We have two kids, a 20 y.o. son & a 19 y.o. daughter. We have 2 muttly dogs, 2 nutty hairless cats, a 90 lbs. plus tortoises & 2 macaws, Picassa, a blue & gold and now a green wing, Lucy.

I'm addicted to making cards, inchies & ATC's. I've swapped at the old PCMB, afa, ISC & Splitcoaststampers. I love collecting little stuff such as bizzare charms, old skelton keys, doll heads, nuts & washers, watch parts & cogs... really anything old & rusted makes me happy ;)

Favorite Music

My favorite music would probably be classic rock...I am old ;) I especially like Van Morrison, Led Zeppelin, Earth, Wind & Fire, the Commadores, Chicago, Jimmy Buffet, Santana, Janis Joplin, Bonnie Raitt, Johnny Cash, Nickelback, Seether, Los Lonely Boys... anybody remember the Bay City Rollers? I use to love them. I like head banging music, punk, reggae, country, & grunge. Hmmm, guess I love it all.

Favorite Books

I love reading John Sandford, Lee Child, Michael Connelly, James Patterson, Sue Grafton, Patricia Cornwell, Janet Evanovich, Steven King & so trying to read Sturgis Larsson's books.

Favorite Movies

I think my all time fave movie would have to be the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Wizard of Oz or Overboard. Now have to add, Game of Thrones & of course the new Star Trek movies.

Favorite Television

I watch Fox News. I get a kick out of the Big Bang Theory & saddened they took #!@? My Dad Said off the air, Person of Interest, Bones, Criminal Minds... I love the original Star Trek, Bewitched, Frazier & Jack Bauer in 24. Loving the new marvel TV series', the Arrow & Flash.....

Favorite Crafts

I love paper crafts! I USE to do a lot of atc swaps but have recently started doing mail art trades & since being on swap-bot, fallen in love with zines. I'm still learning tho :) I love vintage anything, grunge & especially Steampunk! I pick up old rusty nuts, washers, pieces of metal, things that others would consider junk! I also love inchies & got quite the collection going. Did I mention Tim Holtz? Or that distressed look? It is absolutely awesome! Old Skelton keys? LOVE them!!!

Postcards: Ok. Had to add this since lately I've been making a lot of pc's. I prefer homemade but if it has to be store bought, I'd love non touristy cards, sent naked with cool stamps.

Colors - I like reds, browns, burnt oranges & blacks mostly but ALL colors are great! Bling is awesome... But not necessarily "loose" glitter.

Likes & dislikes I think I'm fairly easy. As long as some thought is put into your project, I'd be grateful. I really don't like cigarette smoke smelly things... and thought I just might have to add, no childish or baby things, reward stickers or kawii. My kids are teenagers now so I have no use for such things anymore :[ Everything else is all good :)

I'm a paper hoarder (really!) so please no extras needed there, unless of course, it's cool emphera with bizzare images on it such as doll heads...

Rating

I will almost always have my items ready to mail as soon as I get my partners snail mail addy's so if you don't receive something from me, please let me know. I'll rant, rave and call the postal service a few names then, re-do. I will NEVER flake!! I will also ALWAYS rate as soon as I receive your item(s) otherwise, it'll get mixed in with all my other "stuff", lol! One more thing, please put the name of the swap somewhere, either behind the card itself or in any correspondence. I'm a swap addict & am usually doing quite a few swaps SO, it makes it much more easier & faster to rate if I have that info... but if you forget, promise you, I'm not anal! Love you for it!

I PLEDGE TO RATE!

Comment: Okay, you made me LOL with your note...I'm thrilled that you consider me a good artist, but I follow you on Flickr and happen to know that you are fantastic! Thank you so much for the adorable Christmas inchies and moo...they are all wonderful, and I want to tell you something. This is my first Christmas away from every single family member, and I have the blues. All of my "stuff" is in storage in Vancouver, WA and I have no Christmas ornaments here in MI. I have a limited budget at present, so the idea of buying a bunch of generic ornaments doers not appeal. Last year after Christmas, I bought a big, beautiful (fake) wreath for just a few dollars. This year, I've taken it out of the box and strung fairy lights throughout. I'm using all of the Christmas-themed ATCs, inchies, twinchies, and so forth as ornaments! I've punched tiny holes in each with my Cropadile, and I'm using fine jewelry wire to attach the "ornaments" to the wreath. My dear, your inchies and moo are going to be front and center! Thank you for sending me such darling additions to my wreath of Christmas joy!
Response: Ahhhh! You never realize how much you miss family until they're not around. I hope you are all reunited soon! You are very welcome! Glad to be a little part of your Merry! Happy holidays mz. Donetta! Take care of yourself!!!
