11/30/16--I believe I am all caught up on my swaps. not as many have been completed as early as i'd like, but all is good. thank you for your understanding. Dad now has a pace maker and is resting at home. :)
11/20/16---just a little note to all. My father is in the hospital. His heart stopped working suddenly. I have had a long hard night. If I mail your swap a little late, please forgive me. I am not going to flake on any swaps, but I may need some extra time to get them in the mail.
I am a mother of 2. I love all things swaps and crafts.

I am a mother of 2, born in 2007 and 2010. My husband, kids and I live in Fredericksburg VA. We have been in our current house since my son's second birthday--2009. This year (2016) my son is entering 4th grade and my daughter is going into 1st. We have 1 dog, a border collie, named Mikey. (hint to readers, don't let a child give their pet a human name... we go through a lot of names until we get to the one we want to yell out for...)
I have been crafting since the ripe young age of 10-ish, maybe younger. I was an avid crochet-er and sewer in my youth. I can no longer crochet because of hand issues that started in 1998 (while in college). I have been dabling in scrapbooking since High School and the beginning of college, but really got into it full force after my first child was born.
I love to go to crops because that is where I am able to spread out and get the most done. At home, I am limited to what I pull out at one time, but must put it away shortly after because (as my hubby has remarked) it begins to take over the house (and he can't STAND messes!!).
I commute to DC three times a week, 1.5 hours each way. I have WAY too many years to go before I am eligible to retire, even though I already have 10+ years in. sigh just another one of those things you have to do to keep up with the crafting. Gotta pay for it somehow...
I grew up in Germany. My father was an american government employee, working for the US Army Corps of Engineers. Because of that job, I was born in Fulda, and lived in Stuggart, Augsburg, Berlin, Taunnistein Mountains, and Weisbaden. I have not been back to Germany since we moved to VA in 1992. my motto is: Someday. In fact, my husband and I have been planning a trip to Europe since we were married in 2006 (but something always gets in the way of that, pregnancy, young children, finances, etc...). Summer of 2018 may just be the year for us! (fingers crossed)
On a side note, my husband is from Croatia, and grew up in Cleveland, OH.
I like all things scrapbooking,
including but not limited to: paper, stickers, buttons, ribbons, fabrics, stamps, dies, etc.
hugs from the family, etc.
I'm do not really like: teas (except herbal),
people who do not rate (i do follow up... after a while--just to make sure you got it...),
not being appreciated at work,
stickers from doctor's offices,
smokey smelling items (but I do not rate down for that), etc.
Please Note: I'm pretty easy going. If I receive something I do not like, I save it for someone who will like it and send it on. So it is all good!
