I'm married with 2 beautiful girls. I love kayaking, crafts, the color orange, the color green, reading, dark chocolate, Star Trek, and video games. I also have a major button fetish...lol
I do not flake!!! If for some reason you do not receive a swap from me it is due to the post office. Please send me a message so I can resend.
I love pretty much any craft but my favorite is anything to do with paper. I enjoy making cards or playing in my art journal. I love the look of sewing or embroidery on paper.
I also love making jewelry especially beadweaving. Lately I have been doing a lot of crocheting and embroidery.
Craft Items - paper ephemera (especially vintage), vintage photos, cancelled postage stamps, vintage gummed labels, buttons, stencils or masks, ribbon or lace, rubber stamps, anything with owls or birds but especially items I can use for collage or scrapbooking, prima flowers, die cuts (especially labels and frames, words, butterflies, or flowers), textured cardstock (would be really cool if it was made using an embossing machine), embellishments, journaling spots and labels, rub-ons, letter stickers, embossing powder, stamp pads, stationary and blank note cards, crystal or gemstone beads, silver findings for jewelry, embroidery floss, realistic butterfly or flower stickers.
Miscellaneous items - Tea, candy, chocolate, recipes for desserts, recipes for chicken, recipes for pasta made without beef or pork, bookmarks, foreign money, cd's, kid books, stickers for kids.
I definitely don't mind used things if they are in good condition. I also love handmade items :)
If I'm in a postcard swap I don't mind receiving handmade but I really do like the postcards I receive to be naked. My favorite postcards besides handmade would be vintage photos or images, pulp, pinups, birds, owls and butterflies.
I really don't like candles, incense, makeup, lip gloss, or fragrance
Most fantasy and anything that contains vampires, witches, or werewolfs. Lately I've also been enjoying historical ficton.
