7/18/2011 - In the time since I was last active on swapbot (well over one year ago), I have moved, gotten divorced, been accepted to a new graduate school, moved again, and met a wonderful new someone. Life is...unusual.
I am currently settling into a new house and unpacking all my craft supplies for the first time in a year. I hope to soon settle my account on swapbot and perhaps begin some minimal swapping again, especially swaps that don't require postage due to my current financial situation. Oh my, how strange life and love can be.

Tabletop RPG player. ATC obsessed. Agnostic. Recipe collector. Singer. Clarinetist. Star Wars fanatic. Book lover.
My current in-between-jobs job is working as a supervisor at Michaels Arts & Crafts. Very good for my crafting and very bad for my wallet.
I pledge to rate, and will never flake! I tailor my packages to profiles whenever possible - I love seeing what makes different people happy!

Since I do so many tea swaps, I figured tea deserved its own section! I appreciate both bagged and loose leaf tea equally.
There are very few teas I don't enjoy, but I especially love black teas, followed by mint and fruit teas. I love trying new things, especially crazy or exotic teas! Super bonus if it's not available in the U.S. or is unique to your region. I don't really like licorice and earl grey, but I have a friend that drinks them if you really want to send them. :)
Floral-scented things bother my nose a lot, so those are the only teas I'd really prefer not to receive if possible.
