Important Info: Update 3-13-15: My old PO box is closing at the end of March. If you had my address please be advised that you should now be sending to a box 1342. If that is not what you have, contact me for the updated address.
2013: Lately I've been taking part in more tags and other forum games. I don't get ratings from them but they seem to be more rewarding to me. Less flakers, more appreciation, etc.
A note on Etsy based swaps and tags: If it is on my favs list, I want it. I keep up with my favs list pretty often so if it's still listed, I would still like to get it or something like it. That includes "sold" items, I'd still like if you found something like it.
I am a wife, crafter, photographer, Christian, furry, etc.
I most enjoy sewing. I make things to sell, for gifts and make some of my own clothing (I'm plus sized so making my own is cheaper and fits better)
I have many interests so it's hard to remember to list everything, but I'm pretty open so don't be afraid to ask. I currently live in Tennessee but have also lived in Nebraska, Ohio, Oregon and Kentucky
I am not very picky. You will not find a massive list of "I don't like" "don't send me" "this isn't good enough" etc. I like a lot of things and I appreciate people being thoughtful enough to follow through and send me something. The only thing that I'm not a fan of is things that you might be iffy about showing to your grandmother. I am likely to share with others things I received and being of a Seventh Day Adventist Christian upbringing, things like sex, violence, or cursing cannot be showed to many others. While I am Christian I respect others opinions and the only way I send something religious is if I think you will enjoy it, please do the same with anti-religious or satanic material, I will not enjoy it so save it for someone you think will.
I like movies that are; Comedy, Romantic Comedy (I dislike horror flicks, find them boring and dislike senseless violence)
TV wise, if one of the following shows is on I'll likely be watching it: Doctor Who, Law and Order SVU, Nashville, Two Broke Girls, How I Met Your Mother, Big Bang Theory (and the canceled, can only watch reruns) Gilmore Girls and Cold Case. I also am a big fan of Star Trek: TNG and Voyager
(I've also been an extra in a few things, if you've ever seen the movie "Pure Country 2: The Gift" you've probably seen me! :) )
I mostly sew, anything from bags to skirts and from billfolds to hats. I do some jewelry making, stain glass painting, clay molding (that can be baked in the oven), fabric painting, etc. I've recently started collecting odd miss matched jewelry that I can then turn into angel pins. There are so many crafts that I have at least tried doing some, usually I enjoy a little of all crafts and just shift around doing various ones on different days.
If you're thinking of sending me wearables, please know that I am a large woman. I'm tall and fat. Even hats need to be large since I have thick hair. I love aprons but the tie strings must be extra long.
When it comes to food, I have pretty much no allergies. I do not drink coffee or teas or any "light" drink mixes (crystal light, etc), they all taste nasty to me. I do however love chocolate and soft cookies.
I don't wear jewelry too often and do not have pierced, well, pierced anything. Bracelets are fine, a necklace once in a while but that's about it.
I love :
I also collect games, mostly board and card games.
I sew a lot so fabric is appreciated as is thread of all colors. Same goes for zippers and canvas strapping.
I've got quite a few rubber duckies but new odd duckies are enjoyable.
I also collect pins and buttons. If they are cute, pretty, funny, neat I want them. Even if they are not all that great I could still enjoy them.
I want to collect all the 50 states magnets, currently I have: Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia
I also would love a postcard from the Oregon coast since I used to live there, especially one of The Peter Iredale
My favorite colors are electric blue and emerald green, I love red and black mix and rich blue and black mix. Bottom of the list is brown, most neon colors, orange and white (and pink and yellow are only some things or shades). It's rare that anything of those colors is to my liking. Favorite smells are blackberry and lilac. I'm allergic to cigarette smoke.
If you'd like to include a surprise for my hubby I won't complain. He loves collecting dice (of all types) and bouncy balls (or hacky sacks). He likes trains and does model railroading (HO scale) so train themed stuff is cool. He also likes white tigers and is an electronics guru. He can fix lots of computer and network stuff and tinkers with many electronics. Basically he's a geek :)
I have a lot of fabric measuring tapes. They are old and have an "ad" at their beginnings (though can be removed) but still very usable. If anyone would like to swap and receive one/some, I'm open to sharing.
I also got a lot of elastic. 1/4 inch, 1/2 inch, 1 inch and 3 inch wide. The only one I was up for unrolling and measuring was the 3 inch. It had 35.5 yards on the roll. So if anyone would like to swap/receive/buy some, let me know. :)
If you live in Tennessee feel free to join my group: http://www.swap-bot.com/group/e2453a4fd68a1b9173294aa3c66012ae/about
If you feel that you should have received your item (package, card, email, etc) but have not seen it yet, please let me know before you rate. I will do my best to see where the thing went mia or otherwise fix the mistake.
I always try my best to get things sent out as soon as possible after being assigned. I give great thought before joining a swap, if I question my ability to fully complete it, I move on and don't join. As soon as I receive something I try to rate asap. I add a comment or heart if the item inspires me to do so. I always view profiles of those I am sending to and if possible match the item to the profile. I feel like viewing the profile of the person I am sending to, considering a star for the swap leader and rating people who send to me should be requirements for being on Swap-bot and I try my best to always do each of those.
Sadly I've now been flaked on by multiple people so I guess it's time to start trying to keep track of the undesirable swapers:
