I am a domestic engineer & Zumba instructor. I am lucky to be married to my best friend & we have 3 kids - 2 young men still at home, (one in college & one figuring out what he wants to do,) & a teenage girl. I have moved 20 times in my life & am now a resident of the Pacific Northwest with a lovely view of Puget Sound from my window. I enjoy all types of arts & crafts. I am easily amused & truly appreciate all efforts. I pack bento lunches (when I can) for my family & sometimes myself, but am not Asian & have never been anywhere in Asia, though I would love to visit - just love Bento. Love anything quirky & off-beat, as that describes my family & I to a tee.
I do have one 3 rating that is disappointing. The ORIGINAL swap is somewhere in the black hole of a postal system somewhere. But re-sent after some emotional & communication issues & is as resolved as it will ever be.
I try to post pics of my swaps on my flickr account. but try to wait a reasonable amount of time to post to avoid ruining surprises (when I can remember...)
I love all crafts & may be out of practice with some, but will do my best for anything. I draw, paint, embroider, sculpt, sew, do origami, crochet, knit, build, & just all manner of crafty fun. You name it, I craft it & if not am willing to give it a try.
All :) mostly like music I can sing along to. singer/songwriter type stuff. I like indie, alternative, classic rock, country, christian, rap, zydeco, electronica, rock, pop, everything :) I listen to A LOT of Zumba music as I am always working on my classes in one way or another.
I did find out that international swaps - make sure they fit in an envelope of some kind & try not to wait until last minute to mail so that it can be fixed as needed. Boxes are EX-PEN-SIVE!!! Yikes. Even small, light weight ones.
tiny things, woodland, kawaii, embroidery, fantasy, Retro, earth friendly, bright & shiny, Indie, thrifted stuff, fabric, buttons, handkerchiefs, scraps, bottle caps, EVERYTHING! Love to be surprised. I think half the fun is not knowing what you'll get! My favorite colors: jewel tones, earth tones. rainbows, all colors are awesome.
Sometimes I have the feeling I might have forgotten something - such as to rate, If I owe you a rating that is MIA, please please PM me. Thank You
