Hi Everyone! I am looking forward to meeting new people who are into crafting, journaling, handmade crafts and pen pals.
I love the snail-mail letters and postcard pen-pals... It is exciting to get to know people all over the world, learn about cultures and receive little trinkets that show a little something about each individuals personality...whether it is the paper they choose, art or embellishment they add, it all expresses something special about the individual and I look forward to receiving it ;-)
I love journaling & art journaling, card making, papercrafts, mail-art, jewelry making and basically anything that allows me to be creative and use my hands....----> NOTE: I am no expert, still learning and growing ;-)
I am a personal chef in NYC, avid gardener and food justice activist. I love to grow my own fruits and veggies and making jams and jellies both savory and sweet. I wouldn't mind swapping recipes.
I run a wives only crafting group in NYC and enjoy hanging out with group members sipping wine, eating homemade treats, creating beautiful crafts and chatting about life. PM me if you live in NYC and interested in joining ;0)

I am madly in love with my husband, Lorenzo, and enjoy cracking jokes, playing with our dog and singing broadway tunes at the top of my lungs while cooking, lol.
Include but not limited to: Art journaling, paper crafts, some jewelry making and little bit of knitting!
Excited about making ATCs and inchies, my new discoveries here on Swap-Bot! Back in college I used to collect zines and now really excited to make my own. I am working on a smash book (handmade) based on all of you lovely people I meet here on SB!
I love baking and cooking with fresh, local and whole ingredients. I love to cook things that are very involved and prepare dishes that are visually appealing and equally delicious.
Here are a few things I think are AWESOME!!!! This is designed to help inspire you as my partner in any swaps, I would love to receive anything in this following section, but not limited to ;-)
I absolutely love anything vintage...but I am open to anything...I can find the beauty in anything ;0) I also love bling and sparkles!
I love handmade greeting cards, postcards, tags, matchboxes, place cards for table setting (set of 6) -- I love to host dinner parties and tea parties, all of which have different themes and I like to put handmade place settings out for my guests.
Knitted/Crocheted Hats/ Beanies that can fit my Afro ;-), also neck warmers, gloves, socks (size 9-11) etc.
Fav Colors include: Black, White, Greens, Blues, Purples, Orange, Yellow, Magenta
Fav scents: lavender and mint
Themes: food as art, exotic plants & flowers, unusual trees, herbs, intricate patterns, gothic designs, insects, birds...please note nothing cartoonish!!!
Art: my favorite artists/ photographers include Salvadore Dali, Matthew Barney, David LaChapelle and Cindy Sherman..Sooooo much more......& I looooove street art.
Randoms: zombies, the apocalypse, skulls, skeletons
We have a wheaten terrier/poodle mix - "whoodle"' his name is Tonka. He loves beefy treats (brand new and in original wrapping). He enjoys looking out the window on rainy days, and playing with our next door neighbors dog Sparkle.
About my hubby, Lorenzo, he is currently into the game "Tera" and is an avid gamer (owns every system), he loves reese's peanut butter cups, different flavored nuts (DISLIKES: spicy anyhting) gummie worms, bears, etc. (especially sour), he loves all things 80s especially Depeche Mode & cartoons.
He loves Adult Swim on the Cartoon Network, horror movies, paintballing & ATVing. He also enjoys to read sci-fi novels, techie magazines and watching anime ( he has probably watched every anime series on the Netflix instant queue).
He is a technology freak and genius...he loves to build computers from the ground up (usually PCs) specifically for gaming. But note we are both Macs -- not PCs, LOL, long live Apple Computer, LOL!
With any swap I would love a personalized message that highlights something about you or a story about what inspired your swap item (besides swap rules)...pretty please ;-)
I am obsessed with music, I listen to a wide variety, but not really into country. I won't bore you with my long list, but my fav bands include System of a Down, Janelle Monae, Radiohead & Tenacious D!
I am also a classically trained flautist and I just love different periods of classical music. I am obsessed with Beethoven!
I am totally into Sci-fi and Apocalyptic books and love androids.
My favorite author is Octavia Butler. I have read and own every one of her books, including "Survivor"
I am a collector of cook books and have about 200 now... I love finding old cook books stuffed with old school recipes that take hours or days to prepare. My oldest cook book is from 1920!
I also like books about homesteading.
Each of these items have its time and place, but not here on SB (for me), so please do not send any of the following:
PLEASE DO NOT SEND MY INFO, FBs, LBs, DECOS ETC. TO INMATES! This is something I discovered has been done on here by some members in the past and I would appreciate that you do not do this.
If you have a problem or question about this request please PM me!
I am very reliable, and if you are assigned as my partner I will make sure to get your package out in a timely fashion. If for some reason you do not receive my swap PLEASE private message me.
If for some reason I can not get it out by the due date you will be notified immediately and I will let you know when to expect it.
I am open to private swaps, just PM me!
If I tag you - or vice versa - PLEASE let me know when you have received or sent items -- It is just a nice thing to do ;-)
If you flake, it will be known!
I pledge to send all swaps I commit to! I pledge to send quality items that I would love to receive... NEVER junk!
I will ALWAYS rate you - this includes packages I do not receive on all levels ---> if we had communication and an item still does not arrive in a timely fashion.... you will be rated. If a month has passed since the swap deadline and no swap - you will be rated a 1 until swap is received! If you do not respond to my PMs, emails and/or comments you will receive a 1 etc.
NON-RATERS!!!!! I usually send a PM reminder to people who have not rated more than one week after I KNOW they received my swap! With that said I DO NOT appreciate bad attitudes in responses back to me, unnecessary, especially when I am ALWAYS friendly about it!
FLAKERS!!! Seriously! It just isn't cool!
NOTE: I am here to have a good time, meet new people and try new things. Like most of you, I DO have a busy & fast paced life and I will not dwell on petty things -- but it doesn't mean I will not be unhappy when someone flakes or doesn't rate after the time I put into each swap. In short - it is AGGRAVATING!
