Well I guess I won't be doing as much swapping as I thought this month... Apparently I thought I would be bored so my husband and I decided to tear out the upstairs carpet and do some renovations. My house is a bit of a disaster right now, so I am not signing up for any new swaps.
I teach upper elementary at a small school in rural northwestern Alberta, Canada. Most of the time I love my job, but it demands a lot of my time!
I live with my husband and nearly 7-year-old son in a small town. We live with our elderly pomeranian/chihuahua cross named Mackie, and also a young grey cat named Simon. We recently adopted two middle-aged cats because we are crazy. One is a 20-pound long-haired Siamese-looking cross, and the other is a slightly smaller brother that is missing a back foot. They are super lovey, but also a little bit sheddy! If you are allergic to cats I am very sorry. I do my best to keep cat hair out of my swaps (they generally stay away from it, so that's good).
Generally, my sense of humour can be crude, or smart, or witty.
For the most part, I prefer to make hand-drawn items. I am not great, but I enjoy it. I have dabbled in different crafts here and there, but I am certainly not highly skilled at any particular thing.
I prefer swaps involving:
