I am an artist and a mom to my eight year old son. I live in Southern California, near the ocean. We have a four year old kitty Amber. I am always interested in something be it raw foods, homeschooling, natural teeth health,feng shui, recontructing new clothing from the old - recycled sweaters or other clothing ,felting, permaculture way of gardening, wordschooling schools like Sudburry Valley school or million other things. I am also taking a guitar classes in the local college. I love to garden and to create things with my thoughts and my hands. I always send out the packages, so if there is a problem, please let me know. I almost always reuse the packaging, so it might not look so good on the outside, but I always try to put good things inside. And I always rate the same or latest the next day I receive the package.This swapping thing is so much fun!
