Hi! My name is Susan, and I live in Middleton, Wisconsin in the USA. I am new to swap-bot as of September, 2018. I love cats above everything else!! I love doing and collecting art. My walls are covered in work by different artists and I look at them and enjoy them all the time. One thing I am looking forward to on swap-bot is seeing other people’s art. I would love to see whatever you love to do! That would definitely be wonderful for me. I used to love doing many types of arts and crafts but because of health issues have been unable to do some of the fine motor skills lately. I am working on getting back to it now. I’m looking forward to trying some new things including making paper crafts, Zentangles, and ATCs. Bright colors make me smile. I am also into things from different countries. Really, receiving anything put together with love will make my day :) I love getting mail and doing things to make people smile.
I have two amazing cats who are my world, Olive and Greta. Greta is a beautiful gray rescue with gold eyes. She seems to be part chartreaux and she has a very sweet, loyal, social personality. She always knows when something’s up, her favorite treats are any kind of lunch meat and she loves wand toys and hunting at night when I’m trying to sleep, Olive is a squirrely little brown tabby who is very bonded to me. She is a good cuddler and a big purrer. She loves to roll on her back and to try to fit into boxes that are too small for her. She is a huge treat lover and will knock the jars of treats off the shelves and onto the floor to beg for them. She likes trying new treats. They occupy a big corner of my heart!

Used to Bead, do Quilling, Calligraphy, until physical problems slowed down my ability to do crafts that use very fine muscle control.
Hoping some crafts that I can learn and practice here on Swap-bot will be doable and enjoyable for me
