About Me

IF YOU DO NOT RECEIVE A SWAP OR TAG FROM ME, PLEASE MESSAGE ME BEFORE RATING SO THAT I CAN RESEND. HERE IS WHY:

5/18/11 - They caught the guys stealing from mailboxes. Basically they were stealing things to wash checks, steal identities, and find cash or things they could use for cash. I still am not sending from my mailbox because I am afraid these guys and their "ring" know it was me who tattled on them because I saw them walking up the street (dressed in city workers vests) and witnessed one of them peek into my neighbors mailbox. I have resent to every single swapper that has sent me a message about a missing swap or tag. As of today I have received messages about 2 more that will be resent by Monday 5/23. If you still have not received something from me, PLEASE MESSAGE ME! I have no way of knowing what has been received and what has not and want to make everything right with everyone.

Also, I have voluntarily left many of the groups I am in. This is in no way meant to offend anyone. With all the troubles I have had I have decided to really cut back on SB and I am not able to give each group the attention and participation that it deserves.

We have smoke allergies in our house. Please make sure that items are as smoke free as possible or are washable. This usually is only a problem with stuffed items or toys.

I am a vegan and stay at home mommy of 3 of the world's brightest futures. My children, husband, and home are my life. That's not to say I am a robot though. I have passions and they include crafting, giving, and swapping. So here I am.

I am a creature of many habits and have walked down so many different roads in life that they have all blurred into one. I am goth, redneck, "susie homemaker", punk, nerdy, geeky, and about a million other things. I have a slight problem with CDO (it's OCD but in alphabetical order as it should be) but only with certain things. I also have issues with ADD, most often in my crafting.

Favorite Crafts

I love to knit, sew, quilt, scrapbook, papercraft, work with resin, crochet, embroider, and am learning to cross stitch and diving into the world of wood burning. I would love to learn to make candles and cold process soaps. If it can be crafted, I want to try it.

Things I Don't Like

The worst thing ever is something that someone has put no time, effort, or thought into. I love to give hearts and give them based on the effort and love put into the swap, not just for extras.

Things I would not like to receive

religious icons or literature

political literature

Reward stickers, small loose stickers, sticker flakes

earrings (my ears are gauged)

random jewelry - I love rockabilly style jewelry, but not much else

scrapbook paper, emphera, glitter, scraps of paper,

sequins, pom poms, pipe cleaners, pony beads,

crayons

incense

paper napkins or any disposable paper product (we try not to use them)

fabric that is floral, large geometric, tye dye, or country

characters - Barney, Burger King, Sponge Bob,

WISHLIST

These are in no way requests. I thought some ideas might help my partners, taggers, and secret sisters.

Deco tape

fabric inspired by my likes

Burt's Bees anything

Hard Candy Cosmetics - or anything similar in color and style

artistic nails that I can just glue on

nail art pens and fun colors of nail polish - especially bright colors

embroidery hoops - any size, shape, color

fun items for my kiddos

amigurumi eyes (would love some larger sizes, but any size would be great)

bamboo crochet hooks (heck, I always loose my F and G hooks so even metals of those are awesome)

Cricut Diecuts - Superman, Batman, Sesame Street, any Disney toons,

chunky row houses

4x4 chunky pages in a "50's housewife" theme

Dotee Dolls

handmade quilted mug mugs, coasters, or place mats

Bento Supplies (no disposable chopsticks or liners please)

Cupcake supplies - LOVE sugar candies, interesting wrappers, and toppers

Rockabilly hair accessories or jewelry

Awesome Thrift Store Finds

I love to rescue things from thrift stores. If you do as well (or perhaps some of these things in your donate bag at home) here is a list of things I love to rescue from there.

sweaters with re-claimable yarn

black and white sweaters (any size)

shirts with vintage or vintage looking logos (any size)

My Little Pony (any condition, any generation, but I am not a fan of non Hasbro MLPs)

Littlest Pet Shop animals

cloth napkins, washable fabric place mats

hand made quilts or afghans

vintage (or modern) cross stitch kits

vintage embroidered flour sack towels

metal cookie cutters (no religious symbols please)

Favorite Music

I listen to all types of music (other than hardcore rap) and people are often amused to see the songs I keep in my MP3 player. My all time favorite band has to be the Misfits (as I would love to marry Jerry Only one day) and my favorite singer of all time is Tori Amos. I am a fan, but not one of those uber fans. I am also a big fan of The Cure.

When I say everything, I mean everything too. In my MP3 player line up right now I have Misfits, Chemical Romance, Taylor Swift, Belinda Carlise, Trisha Yearwood, Razed in Black, Cure, and Cannibal Corpse to name a few.

Favorite Television

I don't get much time to watch television, but I do enjoy watching past episodes on Netflix. Some of my favorites are Dead Like Me, Married with Children, Dexter, Eureka!, Weeds, Hoarders, Project Runway, Royal Pains, Family Guy, South Park, and the Simpsons.

Favorite Movies

I don't like to watch a lot of serious movies. When I get the chance to watch a movie that is rated higher than G, it is usually after the kids are in bed and I hate watching serious or scary things that close to bedtime. I have crazy vivid dreams and the last thing I need is to wake up from a nightmare about Freddy Crouger cutting my hair in the middle of a supermarket while wearing no more than a nightgown...This has happened.

Some of my favorites are:

Tank Girl, Nightmare Before Christmas, All the Lampoons Vacation movies with Chevy Chase, Coraline, Cars, Mona Lisa Smile, Drop Dead Gorgeous, Miss Congeniality, Beetlejuice, Little Miss Sunshine, Idiocracy, Sunshine Cleaning, 5th Element, Whip It, 9, Alice in Wonderland, Edward Scissorhands, and pretty much anything done by Time Burton

My Kidlets

Here is a little info about my kids since they love to get mail just as much as I do.

Alexandria - age 12 goes by "Alex" She loves horses and feels she is "too old" for most homemade items other than the occasional pair of PJ pants or arm warmers. She is into camo and skulls and loves really bright colors of nail polish.

Athena - age 6 She loves Littlest Pet Shops, Zoobles, Hello Kitty, Cars, Monsters Inc, and most non-princess Disney. She loves to play outside and is in the local dance company. She also likes everything her sister likes.

Troy- age 3 - he loves Cars, tools, all vehicles, Batman, Star Wars, and dinosaurs. He loves to get into things and loves to create art.

I am yet to see my tags for the Creative Correspondence group. Listed on my profile as a tag flaker as well. It's been 3 months since the original tag date, so more than enough time given. If I ever receive I will take you off my profile.

morwesong on Jun 17, 2011:

I feel like I have been very patient (two and a half months is plenty of time for a domestic swap), but I guess I am going to have to chalk the Not Crappy Tag items up as a tag flake. Hopefully your mail issues are solved, but until I receive something you are listed as a tag flaker on my profile :-( I am sorry it had to come to this.
