About Me

Hey! I've finally got my Etsy store, called Wheredshegetthat, going good, and so I have a little time to do some new swaps! Yay! The link to my store is above!
The photo above was taken when I was only a couple of years into crochet. Now I can make just about any creature or character you can think of and it's my favorite thing to do. Keep in mind that crocheting a custom character or your dog or whatever takes about 10 days. I'm retiring from being a cop soon. I live with my hubby and step-daughter, who is 8 (we have her on weekends). I like to play Fishdom, Sims 3 and also hidden object kindle games, and fantasy games, although not warcraft type. I have a kindle and a PC. And update: I just received a Cricut Explore Air 2!!! So of course, I welcome anything for that.

I Always, Always send my swaps out and usually far before the due date!!! So if you don't get it on time, let me know, and if its the mail problem (which I don't have around here often, as I live near a big city), I'll definitely resend, ASAP. I also intend to always go the extra mile for you on swaps. I'd like people to be really happy to get them. Otherwise, what's the point of all this?
I also promise to rate promptly and fairly. I reuse packaging! I have not bought any new packaging since I started here! I'm always able to recycle what I get from swapping and online shopping! This frees up part of my swap budget to spend more money on your items!

Favorite Books

I love any fantasy like Harry Potter and even fairy tales. I love travel books, especially about exotic locales. I also enjoy historical fiction. I love sci-fi and apocalyptic fiction!
I also absolutely love rereading the books I read as a child (Little Women, Heidi, and all the rest are still on my shelves). Anyone know who is writing the next Harry Potter-type or Sookie Stackhouse type of books? I'd love more fantasy like those series. I listen to a ton of audilble books.

About Me

.

This is the most recent creation I did for a Swaps!

Favorite Crafts

I love making things! My current favorite is crochet, especially Amigurumi making. I make a lot of purses, too, and cowls and wraps of all sorts.
I'm a quilter, and I love to sew.
I also want to learn to make stained glass one day. I want to try sculpy clay craft, pottery, glass blowing, and metal-working.
I do some acrylic painting, tole painting.
I make jewelry, love it.
I make greeting cards, still learning paper crafting.
I love embossing!

About Me

Likes

This isn't a gimme list! It's just that I join a lot of profile swaps and I like people to have a lot to choose from, so they can raid their stash easily, rather than having only one or two things they might not have on hand!
I like:
Yarn
Pretty napkins for decoupage.
glass, crystal, pottery, handmade, or gem beads (I don't use plastic or "pony" beads)

Shambala cord ,

Interesting or cute buttons. I have all the plain colors you can name, in fact let me know if you need a certain color button for a shirt, I have it!

Zippers (any) pretty or cute fabric, cotton, silk, linen, wool

Purse Handles for making bags, can be used if in good condition.

Embossing powder, but not the "distress" kind from Tim Holtz. It bleeds everywhere and isn't my style! I love the kind that heats to a shiny finish. I currently have black, silver, gold, burgundy, blue, blush, and clear glitter. I'd love pink, rose-gold, green, or any other color I don't have yet.

beautiful or cute Stickers.
Most colors, esp. saturated jewel tones. Most animals esp. dogs.
True Blood! I have the videos and books, but I like people's fan-fiction or fan-art. Orange or tangerine scents
Kimonos and silk cloth
Ribbons leather scraps or lace scraps I love decorated and plain envelopes.

Blank note cards to decorate Handmade stuff.
Tiny things.
Fairies.
Flowers.
Purple.
crafting mags, even gently used for crochet, paper-craft, and jewelry making
Celtic things
BJD related items (I have a Minifee) doll clothes crochet patterns (xeroxed or used is fine)
sewing patterns
Rubber or acrylic stamps, any. brads, I have none right now!
inks,
shimmer mists
My step daughter and my grandson are 7 this year, almost 8! They love board games, he's into sharks, dinosaurs, and dogs (any kind!), and she's into LOL dolls, barbie, AG dolls, and slime, ugh!

Please don't send!

Don't want: Porn/nude images or sex toys (yes, someone sent one) dirty items (yes, it has happened)

Edibles. I'm almost always on a diet, and I have a variety of allergies and health problems that don't make it easy for people to find treats for me. So I don't do treat swaps and rather you didn't put any edibles in my packages. Tea bags are fine, if you feel you just have to send something to treat.

FBs (friendship books???) decos? and slams and the like. Sorry, just not into them.
I hate plastic pony beads, and Diddl. Music CDs (I prefer to listen to audiobooks)
toe socks
Teeny-Tiny scraps of paper. I like at least 4" of a page of any type of cardstock/papers, etc. Allergic to:
Cigarette and cigar smoke
kitty fur (sad, I like cats) do not stress if you get one or two little cat hairs in my package, I'll air it out! As long as the cat hasn't been cuddling with or laying on the item, I'll be okay.
