Please don't give up on me. They shut the gas off so I don't have hot water now, and have to pay quite a bit to get it turned back on. I have not given up on sending my swaps, and realize that many are overdue. Please give me the chance to get things sorted out.
UPDATE: June 1st.
I have a new job that starts tomorrow. I am working hard on getting delayed and overdue swaps out as soon as I can. Any of them that do not go out this week, will go out in two weeks when I get my first check. Thank you for hanging in there with me, and for giving me a chance.
Apparently, it seems that the swaps that I have ordered online are having trouble reaching their destination.
I believe it is a problem with my bank, and not my post office.
I am working to remedy the situation. Please bear with me, and PM me with any issues you may have so that I may fix those too.
I am behind on a few tags, I am working hard to remedy those.
UPDATE: I will be delayed in postage funds until June 1st. I am trying to contact everyone that this will effect. If I miss you, please PM me.
I am not signing up for anything else, until I can get these caught up.
Thank you for helping me through a dificult time, and for your patience as I remedy this financial situation.
Please note: since I am VEGAN, I do not use ANY ANIMAL PRODUCTS. This includes wool, gelatin, silk, chamois, feathers, leather, honey, beeswax, whey, casein, milk, etc. If you have questions about this, please ask. Thanks!
I PLEDGE TO RATE. If you do not receive a swap, please contact me before rating, and I will make amends. Postal blips happen. If the swap says sent, it means it's in the hands of the post office.
Hello, my name is Raven.
I found out about this site through Facebook, and thought I would come and give it a try.
Although I have not had an opportunity to do too many crafts in the past, I am eager to learn, and to experience the crafts of others.
I imagine that this site will be a great place to meet other people, as well.
I have a small but growing collection of spoons, shot glasses, keychains, and magnets from every state in the US. I am trying to collect internationally, as well.
I collect military gear: patches, medals, pins.. etc.
I also collect money, magazines, CDs, recipes/cookbooks, and newspapers from all over the world. I enjoy learning about other cultures - including their music and food tastes - and how they live.
I love to cook and I collect cookbooks and recipes - especially those that are either foreign (with and without translations), and/or vegan, vegetarian, raw, and organic. I am vegan and I am big on health and nutrition.
As far as craft things, I collect beads, buttons, ribbon, little trinkets, and paper. I do not scrapbook - per se - but I have been making FBs and decos since I was sixteen. I also make decorative/chunky books. My new creations are ATCs, and matchboxes.
I love listening to music and collect music CDs, as well. I enjoy music from all over the world, especially world, folk music or acoustic. There really isn't any kind of music that I do not like at one point or another - with the exception of music that is racist, sexist, or homophobic. Oh! - and I LOVE country music.
I read tarot cards and am trying to build up a collection of tarot decks. So far, I have three tarot decks, and two oracle decks, and am always on the lookout for more. Since tarot decks have to be a gift given by someone else, this collection is taking a bit of time to build.

Please no foods with saccharin, aspartame, or splenda in it. I am very sensitive to artificial sweeteners, and they make me ill. Stevia (a leaf sugar), however, is allowed - and welcomed, in fact.
