About Me

Hello all...

UPDATE as of Sunday, 09-27-20

I'm back home in California after being in New York longer than I expected. My cousin encountered some complications from the eye surgery and due to this I had to stay longer. I will be catching up on any swaps that may be due to my partners shortly so please be patient a bit longer and thanks for your understanding thus far.

UPDATE as of Saturday, 08-22-20

I will not be on Swap-Bot much for the next -30- days. Due to a family medical emergency I am currently in the state of New York. I will be reaching out to my swap partners that may be expecting a swap from me during this time. Likewise...if you are waiting for a swap and have not received yet... please reach out to me and let me know so that I can correct that situation as well. I did have everything that I was due to send in the mail prior to me having to arrange for this unplanned trip back East.

UPDATE as of 06-08-20

If you get a swap package from me with additional postage due..."PLEASE: let me know so I can reimburse you for your out of pocket expense. I try very hard to mail my packages with the correct postage but I have recently learned that at least one of my swap partners had to pay a small amount for the package. I work very hard on my swaps and I want you to get them but I don't want you to have to pay anything so please let me know so I can make it right! Thanks...

UPDATE as of Thursday, 01-16-20

I will not be participating in any swaps for a short while. I'm having surgery on my left hand and wrist today due to severe nerve damage.

I am current on my swaps that needed to go out and I have a few that I just received that need to be rated. I will do this ASAP. If you are waiting for a rating from me please message me so that I can check to see if I have received your swap.

As soon as I am able to do so comfortably...I will be setting up some swaps in the "What's In Your Mailbox Group.

Hoping to be back and active swapping and hosting in about a month.....

Thanks... Shelia

Update 11-18-19 Update I've gradually started back swapping and having fun again.

*** Update 7-05-19 Update ***

I had to have a 2nd surgery on the same hand on 6-25-19 due to some complications. This was not planned and completely caught me off guard!!! As a result of this new surgery...the time I will be off Swap-bot unfortunately now has to be extended. I hope to be back to fully participating by mid-August or at the start of September.

Thanks so much for your understanding! 🙂

*** Update 6-14-19 Update ***

I will not be participating in any swaps for approximately -45- days. I had surgery yesterday, 6-13-19, on my right hand and arm and are not able to do to much. I will be checking in from time to time to make sure all my swaps are taken care of...all have been sent and I’m waiting to receive a couple to rate. I should be back to participating fully in swaps around mid July...or early August. Thanks!!!

I’m originally from Knoxville TN. My family moved to So California back in 1968 so...I guess you could say California is my home now.

I love to do crafts...especially with paper. I don’t know what it is but I absolutely “love” paper products; Cardstock, stationery, notecards, journals, whatever ...if it’s made out of paper...I want it.

I will always send my envelopes/packages for any swap that I sign up for.

I will also rate as soon as I receive a swap.

My mail goes to a PO Box which I generally check at least twice a week.

If you do not receive a swap from me within a reasonable amount of time and especially if it is after -2- weeks since the swap ended...”please” contact me before rating me down so that I can get another package in the mail to you. It is obvious that "something" is wrong!

Comment: What a lovely package of goodies. The vintage phone stamp is so cool! I love everything Thank you.
Comment: OMG, Sheila. I'm speechless!!! Thank you so much for the amazing package you sent me! Your index cards are so beautiful, I just know that I'm going to hoard them for quite awhile before I'll be able to part with them. The little bead-like things you put on the butterflies on the stencil card was genius and I'm totally stealing that idea! :-) I love the effect you got on the watercolor card. I tried to do something like that myself but was not nearly as successful. I need to practice more. LOL The extra bag of goodies with envelopes, die cuts, pockets and tucks are so gorgeous I also don't know if I'll be able to part with them. Thank you so much for such a generous and incredible swap. I was having a rough Monday and then I opened your swap and you made my day. Thank you so much for putting a huge smile on my face and for such a wonderful, generous and thoughtful swap.

Comment: Thank you. I'm sorry about your mom's passing. Mine died in 2014, and I miss her so much. I understand about your husband not eating anywhere else. My dad was the same way. He would only eat food cooked by a close member. He refused to eat at restaurants, fast food, church potlucks. He once watched a cook in a restaurant spit on the grill to cook hamburgers and that cemented it for sure! As kids we never ate out, until we got jobs and had our own money! Have a great day.

donetta rated for AACG: Orange and Teal ATC on Jul 7, 2021
Comment: Sheila, I am mortified by the late rating for this swap. I'm moving back rot Portland 8/1, and somehow my craft table became piled high with all sorts of stuff, and some unopened envelopes were on the bottom. Please forgive me! Your orange and teal ATC is adorable, and I just love the sweet forest theme. Thank you for always sending such lovely little works of art and such great extra bits!
Comment: Thank you so so much. First time hosting this swap and loved it. And what you created was just perfect, beautiful loved every thing about it .GREAT SWAP!!!
Comment: Hey, Shelia, I got your fun package today; thank you=) Oddly, I also found very little pink anywhere in the store for Pink Day. Thought that was really weird!!
