About Me

Please just let me know if there is a problem and I will do my best to correct it.

If you have me for more than one swap feel free to combine in one envelope.

I have a wide variety of skills and interests which are reflected all the activities and projects I get involved in. I am a crafter, collector, builder, gadgeteer, and adventurer.

I love the fantasy genre first but also enjoy sci-fi and most of what I create has something to do with one of them.

I am also run clubs for Geocaching, Steampunk Workshops, OES, and have been starting up a handicraft guild in my area.

Hi there! .. yes I do need to see your basement.. :P :) .. wow, you are into a lot of different forms of craft.. multi talented! :) .. and..we have nothing in common! :P ..haha.. which is good, because Ive discovered new things like geocaching and it just reminded me that I should step out of my crafting comfort zone and try new things (fascinated with steam punk, but never tried it). I do like the sound of elemental proxies.. I have a tree in my garden which is adorned with all kinds of charms, bells, talismans etc. from all around the world and of all faiths.. definitely drives away the bad stuff! :) .. anyway, hope to bump into you again and swap some ATC's in the future. Have a lovely day! x (Leave a Nice Comment #4)

Hi Jade. Your likes in working with crafts runs alongside mine in similarity. You have an interesting range of interest, and yes, I am with you in that I am new to all this swapping & the jargon, so I can relate to you on that level . I love scrapbooking, stamping & card making as well. Nice to meet you. Have a beautiful day. From Sissy

Oh! I get to leave your first comment. I am glad I got you for the 'leave a nice comment swap' being a fellow origami paper crafter I enjoyed reading your profile. I hope you stick around here I am relatively new too and I like it so far.
