About Me

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...)

Favorite Crafts

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.

Favorite Music

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.

Lesson Learned

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.

General Likes

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.

About Me

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

Favorite Television

I love sitcoms, sci-fi, detective/cop shows, anime!, cartoons & home shows. Some favorites are: Doctor Who The Big Bang Theory Invader Zim Castle Ookami-san and her Seven Companions Dan Vs. Glee Leverage Law & Order SVU Modern Family Once Upon a Time Raising Hope Rizzoli & Isles The Goldbergs The Walking Dead Property Brothers Bones Lost Girl Once Upon a Time (both) All Star Treks Stargate SG1

I really watch too much tv

Favorite Books

I love snarky comedy & detective type of books. Also young adult, sci-fi, dystopian, quirky, sometimes horror & classics are classic :) Some favorites: The Spellman Files (series) by Lisa Lutz Stephanie Plumb series by Janet Evanovich Had a real affinity for Dean Koontz & Stephen King for a while, but not lately. Anything by Christopher Moore the Hunger Games (series) Harry Potter (series) Ready Player One by Ernest Cline most books by John Scalzi (haven't found one I don't like yet) The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan

Comment: You know when I first saw this swap online, I thought, WAY COOL!! But to me it was a bit of a challenge as well. I went through like two cards before I could finally send one off that I thought was worthy!! Thank you for your card, it was really cute!

Comment: thank you for my apples swap! I loved the apple-shaped apple cutter - so cool, i've wanted one of those for ages! And i love my craft bag caddy too! In fact, I love it all - the stamps, the fake apples are particularly ace! They must have freaked out the customs people - they opened up my package and took out the tea, (because they thought it might have fruit peel in it, I think) ps. you did a great job on the packaging! well done you. : )
Response: I am so glad it made it & is a hit.

Yay! I have found you! You were hiding out there in Swapbotland for a while! I'm Kate and I have just received the most amazing profile packed secret sister package from you! Yippeedoo!

I love every single carefully chosen items and just keep going back to the beautiful box to stare into it! Thanks sooooo much! I'm glad i found you, Inspector Clouseau would be proud of me! Kate x

Hi! I saw that you like matchboxes so I wanted to invite you to join my new group matchbox & more. It's mostly about matchboxes of various kinds but there are some other kinds of swaps (such as whimsy jars & lucky parcels). I hope you'll come be a part of the fun! Thanks!

Hello! The Matchbox Mafia mini-zine matchbox that I made for you is on its way--I hope it gets to you quickly and safely! Lisa

LOL re: the reax in your house to your New Year, New Me package.

Artistic on Jan 8, 2010:

The New Year, New Me swap package went out to you this a.m. It's coming from Virginia. Would you please let me know when it gets to you? I'd like to know how long it takes for mail from the mainland to get to APO Europe addresses. Thanks, and hope you enjoy what I sent.

Ellama1 on Nov 18, 2009:

Hi Heather! A quick pop in to say hello! Hope everything is going splendiferously! Am nearly overburdened here, though it's all actually a pleasure! Holler at you soon!

TC on Aug 16, 2009:

Did you get your bottlecap pincushion yet? I sent it on July 20, but I don't know how long it takes mail to get to you via USPS....
