About Me

I live in Southern California, and raise a thirteen year old son. We have two guinea pigs. I am always interested in something be it fairy gardens, homeschooling, teeth remineralizing, herbal medicine, feng shui, reconstructing new clothing from the old - recycled sweaters or other clothing ,felting, permaculture way of gardening, world schooling schools like Sudburry Valley school or million other things. I make my own toothpaste, laundry soap, bar soap, deodorant, and many other things. I also play guitar, mostly classical pieces. And of course, crafting and art. 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!

Favorite Crafts

NEW: getting ready to make my first fairy garden* Felting * Sewing* Knitting/ Crocheting * Yarn spinning* Painting/drawing * Photography * Jewelry making* Carving rubber stamps* Crafting with recycled materials like knitting or crocheting with yarn made from used t-shirts.* paper mache and paper making*

The things I love

Anythin g I can use for fairy garden - small tiles, fairy figurines, tiny furniture and tiny anything* Fun natural fiber fabrics and yarns and wool roving* Interesting texture fabric scraps* Metal and wooden buttons* Hummingbirds and other birds* Joyful angels, peaceful Budhas* Happy fairies* Jewelry making supplies(any, but not plastic), Artistically made homemade items* Essential oils(Not perfume oils)* Tea(but not black)* Knitting, crochet, felting and sewing needles* Acrylic and gouache paint and brushes* Books about crafting and drawing or painting* Things that are natural and ecofriendly* Any joyful art or items* Fabric trims, lace, elastic, etc.*

Do not send list

Synthetic fiber yarn or fabric or clothing* Anything made with acrylic yarn and acrylic yarn itself. * Religious items(although I don't mind receiving relaxed Budha or laughing Jesus images or statues, because these things represent happiness and freedom to me.)* Souverneers like magnets, tea-shirts advertising countries or bussinesses or famous people and such * White chocolate / black tea/ coffee/ anything with artificial flavors, preservatives or colors * Cross stitch( I do love freehand embroidery) * Wintergreen smell and taste * GLITTER and glittery things * popular cartoon, sports team, alcohol, cigaretes, violance representing(like witches,skulls devils, and pirates), sarcastic items * rings (I do like earrings) * VERY OLD BOOKS AND PAPER - YELLOWED ONE- PLEASE DON'T MAKE ME CRY AND SNEEZE - I AM ALLERGIC TO IT. * Kawai stuff * Scrapbooking items

COLORS

I love jewel tone colors - rich reds, blues, yellows,greens, teals, purples, rust orange, rasberry red. Not too fond of pastels(although I adore mauve pink) or neon colors. I usually dislike variegated yarn and items made with it(especially with pastels involved).

My son likes

  • anything Christmas *lego dimentions

Comment: Hello again Daiva :-) . . . It's so nice to have another swap with you! I love your expressive stamps. The card you made with the dancer and the guitar (and the guitar-loving bird) is just the kind of retro modern look I like. And thank you for the great ATCs! Lotus Flowers and Yurts make really cool subjects for stamps. I love both of the cards and will enjoy them in my collection :-) Thank you for a very nice swap!

Comment: Thanks for the Spring stamped postcard. I really wanted to see the details of the tree but being on the gray cardboard and being colored over, I really couldn't see much. But I liked the birds, the hearts, and the plant with the hanging flowers. Very much Spring!
Response: Thank you. Tree was meant to be more of the background thing, I like to stamp some things in lighter colors, because it helps to create a bit of the layering effect.

Comment: Hi Daiva. I really liked your rooster stamp. It put mine to shame. Did you carve the lily of the valley stamp? Beautiful! Thank you.
Response: I am glad you like him. :) The lily of the valley is actually not my carved-I got it from the swap on this group by plumeriafan. :)

I have not tried Tunisian yet. But I am crocheting Valentine's stuff like crazy... I need to focus back on the learning Tunisian...

Mieke on Nov 6, 2011:

I would love to swap with you. Let's set one up?

Just packed your tawashi swap. (I apologize in advance for the struggle to open it.) Enjoy!

mykidzmomnow on Jun 30, 2011:

Your profile is beautiful. We have a lot of common interest for two different worlds. Have a great weekend!

Daiva, I've left a rating, but just have to know...did you also make the little beads? This is the most wonderful package I've rec'd. I'm on cloud nine. I just keep looking at everything over and over. I'm so lucky.

Mieke on Jun 7, 2011:

Thank you for your compliment about my blog. Actually I am in doubt for quite some time now about writing in English, but I think my English is not good enough. Other that that I would love to blog in English. I am not sure what to do.

Mieke on Jun 7, 2011:

The swap is on its way. There will be two envelopes arriving, because that way postage was cheaper. Hope they will get to you quickly. Actually they were sent out yesterday (by my mom, she just let me know today that they were sent).
