After a long hiatus from swap-bot, I have returned! I've had several things going on in my life and hopefully things are on a smoother road ahead!! I'm looking forward to swapping and chatting w/ all of my old friends! Feel free to message me or invite me!
About me. I'm a Mommy to a truly amazing 12yo son, we live in southern WV. He loves all things video game! Plus Star Wars, Legos, Bionicle and anything dealing with Playstation 2 or 3, Nintendo DS, Wii and Gameboy games. He enjoys playing soccer, baseball and golf.
I work full-time as an inspector for the county. I love my job and the diversity and variety that goes along with it.
I enjoy making ATCs. I have done many crafts including rubberstamping, scrapbooking and making cards so I have a HUGE collection of supplies for all of them. I have also completed a few items of beaded jewelry but they never turn out how I want them too. I welcome any furniture/supply/decorating magazines for them and I'm willing to set up trades for things you may have as extras for decorating.
I have lots of fabric and felt that I'd be willing to trade other things for such as school supplies or things for my son. I'm welcome to other ideas, just message me!
I love photography and all aspects of it! My favorite photos are of trees, farm scenes, waterfalls, woodlands, birdhouses, nature and anything beach! I enjoy looking at magazines for home decorating and country living.
Flowers, I love flowers! Sunflowers are my favorites! I also like irises, yellow roses, orange poppies, lillys, irises, asters, daisies, clematis, echinacea, morning glorys, moon flowers, gladiolas, hyacinths and lupines. In spring and summer, I love to have a vase of fresh flowers in my kitchen. I welcome any of your flower seeds if they'll survive zone 6 climate. I have sunny and shady beds for my plants so either will work.
I'm a nature-freak and love hiking and being outdoors. I enjoy reading about mysteries, police cases, fantasy, vampires. I always have a book in my tote and one in my vehicle!
I love cats, owls and cows. I love vegetable gardening and like to preserve the fruits and veggies that I grow by canning and freezing.
Favorite colors: dark brown, teal and forest green. I am "earthy"!! I like black and shades of grey too. I like deep purple and reds too. Pastels and light colors just aren't for me.
I wear lots of beaded bracelets, earring and necklace sets.
I love my Birkenstocks, flip flops and sandals!! I enjoy funky socks (but not with my sandals, lol).
I like using ephemera, odd images, black and white photos of any type and especially maps in my crafting. I also like bright flowers and bird photos that can be cut out for my handmade postcards.
I enjoy fantasy, fairies and fae. Love anything moon and sun/celestial theme. Dragonflies and butterflies are well-liked also!
I like advertising magnets from your town/country.
I love candles! (Yankee Candle are my favorites: Midsummer's Night, Sugar cookie, Cranberry or Mulberry, baking or fall scents esp.
I like buying handmade things and adding things to my wishlist on etsy. I often find things that I can re-create from etsy. I can always use new postage stamps and collect used ones for MS research for a friend.
I COLLECT ANY TYPE OF NEW WOODEN PENCILS and you will be appreciated greatly for adding to my and Z's collection. We also collect rocks from various locations, seashells and sea glass.
I love Napoleon Dynamite and I'm an Alice in Wonderland fan! I like funny and/or feminist postcards. I collect old 'lonely' quaint tea mugs that you find at yard sales and flea markets.
I have a huge jar of miniature things, my own tiny whimsy collection. I hope to add mini artworks in frames to my dollhouse when I build it!
I enjoy bubble baths!! I like relaxing/meditational cds while soaking. Candles are welcome along with soaps and teas.
I'm always on the lookout for hairbands and accessories for THICK hair, in particular, pony tail holders. I am open to hair barrettes to use.
Another thing, I always rate when I receive a swap and I always leave a comment on your profile for a tag. I would hope that you'd at least send me a message and thank me if you received a swap/tag from me. I don't care if you rate me, just a simple thanks is appropriate and lets me know that the postal people aren't enjoying it. If something isn't received in a timely manner, message me and I'll be happy to track it or re-send.
Just so you know I don't have anything against pcs or atcs involving nudity or "bad words". I'm not offended easily.
ATCs and altering tins and wooden boxes. I enjoy making and altering postcards and greeting cards also. Dollhouse and miniatures.
I enjoy older 80s hairband music, anything Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin, The Doors. I like classic rock and don't care much for rap, disco or country.
I don't like cigarette scented items, please. I don't like many girly cutesie things except for t-shirts or tank tops. I do wear earrings but have plenty already, unless they are handmade beaded earrings, not too dangly but not stud-like either. I do have religion but prefer not to receive this type of items in swaps. I don't collect any type of angels! I don't collect magnets but if you have a sunflower, farm, cow, domino or one with your city/state/country, I'd love it!
