About Me

Hey! Thanks for stopping by! On August 12 of 2019, I died. Thankfully someone stopped to help me. They preformed cpr for approximately 5 minutes, until the ambulance arrived. With 1 shock, I was back. I am so thankful! Only about 5% of people survive this kind of thing! It;s called Sudden Cardiac Arrest. If you are a survivor, please share your story with me. I'm still recovering, but my prognosis is good. Only this week (10/30/19 ) was I able to complete a small piece of art. Yay me! I'm not worried, it'll come, I mean art, It's in my blood. I'm looking forward to a second chance at life. Thanks for reading!

Also if you're into zines, please share! I'm very easy to please. We've met some really great swappers! This is a wonderful place.

About Me

I can't say I have a favorite color, I enjoy all colors. I love paper. Scrap booking paper, water color paper, old book paper, maps, all paper. I also like vintage images. Did I say I like vintage? Doors, architecture Mail art I'm not fussy, but I do want you to put some work into it. I like beads, buttons, dodads and glitter. I love washi tape. I like playing cards. .Favorite movies, Gone with the wind, It's a wonderful life, Moonrise Kingdom (I highly recommend, if you haven't seen it) Vintage. Architecture, doors, houses. Junk Gypsy style. Paper, October Afternoon, Graphic 45. Old paper, dictionary, maps. Mystery. I like browns, pinks, greens. Favorite artists: Remington, Charles Russel, Vangogh, Edward Curtis(photographer) I like gnomes!

About Me

I live with my wonderful husband of 46 years, and have 7 children and 18 (and have a new one on the way ❤️It's a BOY! arrived Aug 4, 2022) grandchildren (7 years ago we welcomed 4 new girls to our family!). We (my husband and I ) are both very artistic. We love to work on projects together. 3-31-22 please if you live near water, I have a sand collection! If you can, just a small bag with the name of the beach and the date. Thank you so much for the friendship I have here on swap bot!!!

Important

I love extras, don't get me wrong, but a note from you ( whatever it may be ) is much appreciated! Tell me a story, tell me what you ate for dinner, tell me a joke, just tell me something about you! Nobody is You-er than YOU! And that's the whole point, right? If you don't receive, please let me know. I want you to be happy! Also if I don't add enough postage let me know. I try to add more than I need, Thanks! Also, If I haven't rated you, I may not have received something. I also hate giving anything less than a 5. Honestly, I know there's a need for the messages section, but to me it's like email (I hate it) So if you're trying to get my attention, put a note on my wall. Sorry that you have to reach me that way. I have been trying to look at them more often.

My 3 rating

Hi, I have a 3 rating..... I admit I forgot one element of the swap, a list of things I liked about Christmas. I did not flake. (Plus it cost 7$ to send!) I sent the swap, my partner did not like what I sent. She said she was very disappointed. I guess I was too. Live and learn. Plus, she didn't give me the chance to make it right.

Please look at my ratings section. I think you'll see most people have been happy with what I've sent. Thanks.

About Me

I love all forms of art, but especially paper/mixed media art. I have taken classes by Melody Ross/Brave Girls Club. I've done alot of different crafts, from sewing my girls dresses(as children) to painting (now). I live in Minnesota! I don't read very much, except my Bible and devotional. Also, If you're into zines,I would love for you to share one. You may receive one from me!

tHANK YOU for the striking contribution to my LEMON zine!

Star, your Moon Zine-Go-Round is finished and I dropped it in the mail today to go back to you. I think you'll be happy with the results. This was the first zine go round I've finished. It was great to be the last person. I got to see the original finished product. :)

BTW, I ‘borrowed’ your idea and also put all of my fall favorites on slips of paper in the pocket letter I sent out. Thanks for such a great idea; I really enjoyed thinking about what I’ve loved about fall in the past. :) <3

Happy Birthday!
