Nov 13': Thank you so much for all the kind msg. I am now able (and willing ;) ) to do private package swaps. No crafting or hosting though.
April 13': I am back, but on a different level than before. I'm still up for private swaps - both crafts and supplies. I won't be hosting any group swaps however as that's still too stressfull...
March '13: I am making appearances but am not all back yet.
January '13: I am going to take a break as swapbot has become a stress factor instead of a fun factor. I'll look in once in a while, but on a weekly/bi-weekly basis.
Im a delightfully random crafter from Denmark.
I think Swapbot is full of wonderful opportunities to use my scrapping stash in small manageable creations :).
I only join swaps (apart from the ones I host) when I have the craft already made. This way I dont get stressed out and just have fun putting swaps together:).
My group involvements:
Founder of Robsessed Twihards
Im always up for private swaps. It can be for a specific craft (ATC etc) or for craft supplies. I have tons of ephemera! And barrels of trinkets, thingy-majingies etc :D. And if you have kids, I probably have something for them in one of my drawers too:D.
THINGS LOOKING FOR NEW HOMES:
- postcards (new/used, tourist/not-tourist)
- tea-bag wrappers
- ephemera-packs (book pages, music sheets, maps...)
Mainly paper crafts; ATC, inchie, twinchie, match boxes. Decoupage, scrapping, fuse beading (Hama beads, PerlerBeads). I can also do basic knitting and crocheting - and have a mum who is known as the Knitting Monster - so there is always help at hand :D Stylewise I like things to have an edge instead of being too cute ;) I like steampunk, vintage, retro, art nouveau, pop art.
I like that there is a thought behind the ATC so it's not just decoration. That figures have a character.
As to themes I like owls, mushrooms, blue and orange together, the quirky, play on words, satire/irony, Alice in Wonderland (all versions), Twilight (not necessarily with movie pictures), Robert Pattinson (not necessarily as Edward:D).
Not in to: zentangles, gory, DOTD, religions
Owls - collect small figurines.
The original Winnie the Pooh drawings.
Purple, teal/petrol blue.
Gnomes in the style of the books by Rien Poortvliet.
Nuts; particularly dry-roasted peanuts, macadamia and coated peanuts (like chili nuts just NO chili).
Peacocks, hedgehogs, manatees, ringtailed lemurs, Humboldt penguins, guinea pigs
Glue-tape Runner/Easy Mounter
white glue pens (dries clear)
Paper punches: gear, goblet, tea-cup, cutlery
Brads (except rounds)
adhesive flatback pearls
Souvenir key rings (metal ones depicting tourist attractions, landmarks, national animals...)
Royal kitsch - I have some lovely tins with royal couples on, but smaller things would be nice (thimbles, stickers, key rings).
Twilight/Robert Pattinson/Harry Potter items to craft with
Stuff for Sizzix Bigshot. (film strip, small gears, movers & shapers base tray, extended spacer platform, edge die file tabs, ..)
Books: Colleen McCullough's "Cesar" and "Anthony & Cleopatra" volume 5 and 7 in series.
Ugly dolls, bacteria plushies.
Scented things; they tend to trigger migraine attacks...

Like this but without the space:
[This is a link] (http://xkcd.com/) .
! [any text if you want, can also be left blank but the brackets need to be there anyway] (the link to the picture starting from the http bit and ending in jpg or whatever the picture format is) written without the extra spaces.
