On February the 20th 2013 (my husband and mines 10 years anniversary) I fell down some stairs and fractured my right elbow, so for the next couple of weeks I will not join any swaps. In the swap I am already in, the partner have been contacted.

Please don't see the wish list as a "shopping list" but more as an insight to the things I like and enjoy. I have put it on my profile, because I like it when people I swap with have it, it gives me a great idea of what kind of things they like. Thank you :)
This is just for my own convenience
