About Me

My name is Pam Swift-Brooks and I am an avid paper crafter who focuses mainly on cards, ATCs, and Inchies. I am married to my best friend. We are globe trotters who love to travel! We have lived in several states and hope to settle in Texas for quite a while.

We have 2 black labs; Raven "The Claw" and Sodi aka Soap, Soapy or Sopapilla. Sodi is my MIL's dog that we inherited after she broke her ankle and was afraid that he may knock her down as he is largely untrained. We also have an African Grey Parrot Delilah, or D-Bird, that I adopted from a Parrot Rescue facility where I volunteered once a week.

I have spent the last 20 years working in different Zoos around the country. As a keeper, I have worked with most of the common Zoo animals that people think of. However, my most favorite of all animals are PARROTS :) It does not matter what kind, I love them all! Not only are they beautiful; but super intelligent too, and not to mention ultra sweet!

Favorite Crafts

My most favorite holiday of all time is Halloween!

I LOVE whimsical or cute skulls and skeletons! I’m not really into sugar skulls/Day of the Dead. I love the whimsical style of crafting, and also have a bit of a Gothic style.

I really don’t care for “Vintage” or “Shabby Chic” style in general, but love this style if it is Halloween or “darker” themed. I am intrigued with Steampunk even though I don’t really go for the vintage look. I guess that’s why I like the word intrigued as this style marries a somewhat modern idea with an old style. I would like to explore this style some more in some swaps. :D

Some of my interests in color schemes are Earth Tones (think fall and Halloween), bright colors such as pink, purple, and green (think spring and summer).

I love embellishments! Especially whimsical, and Halloween. I am also a sticker addict for said genras.

WISHLIST:

embellishments especially animal or Halloween oriented.

PLEASE and NO, THANK YOU:

promotional religious items. nudity, even if it seems tasteful to you. items with a cigarette smoke smell. book pages, paper scraps as I have way too many myself! cancelled postage stamps, tickets anything vintage or shabby chic (except Halloween related) Manga/Anime items

I will pass said dislike items on to find a forever home.

Favorite Music

My favorite music is alternative or indie rock. I am a huge fan of 90's music, and some 80's music.

My hubbie and I have not watched television in over 20 years! However, we do watch TONS of DVDs and are Netflix and Amazon Prime subscribers. A couple of my favorite TV show series that I love is Doctor Who and The Walking Dead. I just recently realized that Amazon Prime carries Doctor Who, so I have alot of catching up to do!

I have never been much of a reader. It will literally take me over a year or more to read one book! I guess I have reading ADD! I keep forgetting who characters are if they only have small parts in stories, and not in every chapter; so I have to reread what I read! XP

Favorite Movies

I LOVE movies!! I love action/adventure movies the most, with Jason Statham being my most favorite action star. I also enjoy a lot of Pixar and DreamWorks films that are mostly geared towards kids. Some of the directors that I follow are: Robert Rodriguez, Quentin Tarantino, Guy Ritchie, and Tim Burton.

About swaps

I always send my swaps on time and I am quick about communicating with my partner to make sure that they are received if I feel like it should have arrived by a given amount of time. Unfortunately, I was rated unfairly one time after one of my swaps was lost twice internationally and finally was received on the 3rd attempt, making my swap late. >:/

I always rate my swaps as soon as they are received as I know that my partner is just as excited as I am to see that it has arrived and if there are any comments about the artwork. :D

I know that life happens but please be considerate and let me know if you are running late with a swap as I will do the same for you. Please also let me know if there are extenuating circumstances as to why I have not been rated in a timely fashion and if my swap was received. Communication is key to making swap-bot a great place to be!
