Update 9-15-2011

Swapping friends, I sincerely apologize for my absence and lack of luster and dedication to my swaps. I will mail out Friday. I have explained the delay to each of you. If you have gotten an angel for my swap, PLEASE email me at [email protected] so that I can send the angels themselves something since they were so kind.

I have decided to leave swap-bot. Friday all my swaps will be current, but I feel that it is only fair that until I can dedicate completely to the swap that I will take a step away. I have so enjoyed meeting and making things with all of you. And hopefully I will return at a later date.

Thank you for your time and understanding. Again, I am truly sorry :(

My name is Christine. I am married to a super cool guy. His name is Chris (hence the csquared). He is an avid hunter and fisherman. He loves the outdoors, Steelers (me too!!) and coffee (yuck). We have been married for almost 3 years and have the sweetest little girl. Her name is Madison. She just turned 2 and she is amazing. She loves Elmo, reading and orange seems to be her favorite color :) As for me, well I teach kindergarten. I absolutely love my job (even when I am complaining about it). My favorite color is blue, but all colors are lovely (except pink...I'm not really a fan). I love scrapbooking, sewing, quilting (more so the tops than the handquilting...although I had a wonderful teacher and I am capable of doing it, I'm just lazy), getting super lost on the internet, you know you start at one cool idea and it leads to another one and soon it's bedtime!!!

Thank you to @sarahplease @dmarie @lorepuckett and @saucyknits for being fab folks!!!

I would like to add that I am having a lot of fun doing the swaps. I have learned quite a bit in such a short period of time. If you are supose to get a swap from me...I promise it will get to you! I have mailed the same swap three times to make sure my partner gets it!!! If life happens and gets in the way, I will email you because I honor the commitment that I signed up for. If for some reason you haven't received something from me, PLEASE PLEASE PM me (I have already learned to save my receipts from the post office)...and I will do the same for you. Happy Swapping Friends :)

Favorite Crafts

I love to sew, quilt, scrapbook and do random altering projects.

Favorite Books

Don't laugh....I love children's books. And Robert Fulgrum...hilarious

Favorite Movies

Pretty Woman (still my favorite), Good Will Hunting, all the disney movies :), The Sound of Music, Shawshank Redemption

Favorite Television

Dexter and Criminal Minds are my current faves, will always love Sex in the City and Friends. But I really don't watch much TV.


something handmade by you :)

all things blue, but I do enjoy all colors (especially brights)


cool and unique buttons


notes from swapping friends

taking pictures

opening packages

kind people

funny people


my car (2004 black mustang)

love my cricut and cuttlebug

sharpies (as a teacher I love all school supplies)



grilling out

having people come to my house

celebrating little accomplishments

lists (actually I hate writing them, but I love checking things off when I've actually done it)

the beach

...I need to stop, I like a lot of stuff


smoke and things that smell like smoke


not a huge fan of pink


princess things

wish list items

water soluble markers

buttons...I want to make a button bag. It's going to be a rainbow, so all colors, shapes and sizes are greatly appreciated :)


unique fat quarters

crocheted (sp) doilies...I hated them as a kid, but now that my gram has passed I kinda miss seeing them, and I don't know how to make them :(

I think any unique, handmade item from you would be awesome!

fun and easy patterns/tutorials

ric rac and lace (any color/width)

envelope templates (I have gotten some and they are amazing, and so much fun!!)

thin double sided tape (to make those cute envies)

Stamps are cool for my cardmaking

Madison LOVES Elmo and to "color pictures" (drawing on any paper near where mommy is working) . So if you'd like to send stuff for her that would be great too.

Organization tips!!!

our home

living room is green and tan, with white frames on the walls

kitchen, I am currently in the middle of adding apples as the decor...just made vinyl wording and I love it!!!

Madison's new biggie girl room will be whimsy woodland creature themed (have bedding, need to find time to paint...uggg)

Cricut corner is a lovely blue called "Heavenly Day" with navy blue accent color


Comment: I am sure I have received your fall card.. but I straightened out my goodies and can not find your envelope with return address. Thank you for making my card and I'm sorry I have not responded sooner. I had to leave and go care for my mother last month. Thanks again.
Comment: If I ever receive I'll re-rate.

Comment: I understand life getting in the way of swaps but you stated that you'd have all sent out and that hasn't happened. If you ever decide to come back and join us again I will change the rating.

Life is unpredictable, sometimes it gets really hard. I totally understand! Hoping yours will work itself out. I hope you got your Yo Yos I sent. And I hope the very best for you & your daughter. :)
