I am Zoey... Zoey I am


My passion and my dream "Photography" i love being able to capture the world as i see it and share with others to enjoy.

The past few years as life sent me into a few flip flops, I renewed my love of Painting, I paint Rustic Farmhouse scenes and I have a local craftsman that frames my art in rustic barnwood

~I am a mother to two grown children, & mommom to two adorable grandchildren,

so the low down is..Zoey Rayne is my Artist Name...Peppie is my everyday life name...

you will most likely find me in my art studio most days ~Life is good~

I am a artist. crazy at times.shy.eclectic in many ways.a true friend.very emotional.a lover of life.quiet.I miss my family.time slips by me.hate to cook.picky eater.moody Dreamer.Pretty~~Shiny~~things catch my attention~.

It's How I Roll

If I am your partner and you do not get my swap then please let me know before you rate me. So we have a chance to figure out what happened/ I will send my items right away so it gives enough time for the packages to reach its destination. I will definitely resend any swaps that don't make it through. But i must know, so no confusion occurs...please..I only want happy experiences.

I make a great effort to rate the packages I receive just as soon as I open them. So if you have not been rated I may not have received it yet. If it's been awhile and you are concerned, please feel free to contact me. PLEASE Contact me BEFORE a deadline if you will be late sending.. (life happens: & I understand much better with communication)....

If you are in a swap that i host and you send late without communication, more than likely i will not allow you in other swaps, because i take deadlines very serioulsy

We all have different skill levels & strong points, but the quality of your work shines through when you put your best into it. please send what you feel is the best example of who you are and how you want to be seen as a artist or crafter.

Take Note:

Received the swap item and followed the guidelines of the swap. 5 (only exception is: if late and full communication and a understanding has been met, then and only then will i consider different)

Received the swap item but the guidelines were not followed. 3

Did not receive the swap item. 1

I give hearts for heartfelt swaps

I would like to take this time to thank my partners that i swap with, I appreciate your time and thoughts that go into your swaps.
