SPOILER ALERT - I post pictures of my swaps on my flickr. Please don't look if you are my partner & want to be surprised!!
I've been swapping since May of 2007, and am pretty much addicted to it at this point.
My name is Heather & I am 28... Married with kitties. :)
I'm originally from PA, but have lived in several different states. My dream is to one day live out west, either in Northern California or Seattle.
I work as a "barista", and enjoy it for the most part. I think my favorite thing about my job is all of the free coffee I get. :)
I could happily spend all of my time in thrift stores or yard sales. I'm also a big fan of dumpster diving. You'd be amazed at what people throw away.
I have two Etsy sites, one for fun altered jewlery & the other is a vintage and supply shop. Check them out!
I want to try everything! Right now I am very into making necklaces from game pieces, altering everything, decoupage, loteria ornaments, matchboxes, re-purposing stuff, bottlecaps, spray paint stenciling & sewing.
I also love to knit, though I'm kind of wishy-washy with it. The urge has to strike me, and for some reason it hasn't in quite some time. I do, however, always welcome wool & cotton yarns.
The Royal Tennenbaum's. The Life Aquatic. Garden State. Amelie. Edward Scissorhands. V For Vendetta. Fast Times At Ridgemont High. Dazed & Confused. The Nightmare Before Christmas. The Corpse Bride. Beetlejuice. Charlie & The Chocolate Factory (original.) American Splendor. Detroit Rock City. Dirty Dancing (original.)
Also a big fan of documentaries, especially political & cultural. Can't get enough of the BBC nature specials. I am in love with David Attenbourough. (Aggh - spelling!)
I can watch nature shows, especially about the ocean, all day long.
Soprano's, Weed's, Colbert Report & The Daily Show.
Anne Lamott, David Sedaris, John Steinbeck, J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, J.K. Rowling. J.D. Salinger. Howard Zinn. Noam Chomsky.
Any progressive magazines or literature. I would love your old copies of Bitch, Bust or Adbuster's Magazines.
I always welcome used items - be it rubberstamps, fabric scraps, etc... Use your own good judgment, but please don't think sending me something used would be offensive. :)
I reuse as much packaging as I possibly can & you should to.
I have 3 cats who have free reign over their house. I try very hard to keep them & their hair out of my packages, but occasionally one may find it's way to you... Sorry.
Profanity & nudity in art/music are not offensive to me, so please don't feel the need to censor yourself.
If a swap is late, please contact to me. I am rarely late, and will absolutely contact you beforehand if I am going to be. Please PM before rating, I will extend you the same courtesy.
