Didn't get anything from me?

I'm travelling until September 7th and might not be able to be online. I will send my swaps before the deadlines though.

*** Please note! Our mail route now has become one where there is a sub EVERY day. One of them doesn't pick up outgoing mail at all and I find out at the end of the day when I pick up my mail that it is still in the box. This means if I say I sent it today the post mark very well might be the next day. I cannot drive out to the post office every day and I find it irritating that they don't pay attention. I've flagged the mailbox and it only works for a few days until we get a new person.

So, in short, I'm not deliberately sending mail out later ******

This means I'm not the type to flake when I need to send something. So if you did not get a swap from me PLEASE let me know. Please RATE me, I rate as soon as I get your things, please be so kind to do so too.

Favorite Crafts

Knitting, weaving and spinning my own wool. Coloring books is another thing I love, I have too many and not enough time to sit down and color.

Favorite Music

Right now anything Latin I love. I'm dancing in a dance class called Dance Party, a mix of Zumba, Latin Dance, hip-hop and Bollywood.

Favorite Television

Do it yourself shows, cooking shows. Documentaries that teach me something. Cuurentl enjoy watching The Reign, Call the Midwife and The Crown.

Favorite Books

I enjoy mysteries, true crime stories, biographies, travel stories and I read cook books as a hobby.

Things I really love

I love colors but don't like red or really pink things. I'm a big fan of Art Deco, Gargoyles, Buddha pictures, elephants, colors and patterns of all sorts. I love tulips and pretty flowers. I'm getting into washi tape. My favorite painters are almost all the Dutch Masters, I like Monet and Georgia O'Keefe as well.

Don't like.

I would REALLY prefer no cursive handwriting, I wasn't raised learning how to read it and I have hard time reading it. If it is however how you write then please write a litte bigger with spacing!

I don't like strong scents either in perfume or candles. Real lavender is always good. Due to dietary restrictions no food please. Not a fan of cartoon items, please no stickers,no Hello Kitty things. I don't care for beach/overly flowery or very pink stationary.

Cities and places I love.

Favorite cities, Amsterdam-Lyon-Paris-Avignon-Mont Saint Michel-San Francisco- Seattle-Chicago.

About Me

Jack of all trades, very creative and active every day. I don't work but I volunteer at an educational farm and as a reading tutor. I love dancing, just got certified as a Zumba instructor.
