I always leave feedback scores for the swaps I receive so I hope those I send to will reciprocate.
I LOVE scrapbooking! I am happiest while scrapping as well as journaling, making ATC's, swapping, taking photos and doing my other crafts. Also happy: yard sale hunting, antiquing, playing tennis, swimming, going to the gym, baking - experimenting with cupcake flavors and decorations and TRAVELING. If I could, I would go someplace new every weekend, but since that is not a possibility I anxiously await my next chance to travel whenever I can!
I am a Magazine Junkie!!! After completely going through a magazine again an I again I then use pages to make envelopes; I also cut out images for journaling and making ATC's, etc. so any cool magazine pages you see, send them my way - I will probably use them for something!
Trying to be GREEN as much as I can. Which means I also recycle envelopes I receive to send out my swaps.
