I'm a 36 year old, mom of a 5 yr old little boy. Recently divorced (yippee) and seeing an amazing new man who is showing me what love is really all about. We have 2 dogs, five cats and a fish. We love to feed the squirrels and birds in our back yard.
I do animal rescue and rehabilitation. I work with bunnies and kitties mostly. Although to pay the bills I am a nursing assistant, and I love my jobs and my clients.
I love to do crafts (and am glad to find swap-bot). I love to sew, crochet and paint. I love to make cat toys, clothe dolls, bunnies and frogs. A frog I made won first place at our local fair. I love making Dotee dolls, and having fun being creative with them.
My favorite colors are green and aqua. I appreciate the whimsy. If you have to make one for my fave color, please use any color. Please don't make me green or yellow, I have many of them.
Dotee requests.... I'd love to have a snowman dotee. A solid orange one. Unusual shapes. My favorite animals are cats and rabbits. I'd also love a gingerbread one.
My favorite animals are cats, pigs, frogs, pandas and monkeys. I collect monkeys and dolls (I don't like breakable ones) especially ones from the 80's like My Child or Cabbage Patch or Blue Box Dolls (have sewn on white shoes). I also like handmade dolls. I also like bird figurines. I also have a collect Strawberry Shortcake dolls. Drew took my "knock off" SSD, and named her Crystle after a character from the Fantastic Four, and we just found her a cute little outfit. So, if your seamstress or your little girl is outgrowing their dolls, I'd love clothes for my little dolls (Strawberry Shortcake dolls are about 5" tall or so, they can wear Kelly (Barbies little Sister) clothes.
I also love snowmen and gingerbread men. And who doesn't love Angels? Penguins are cool too.
I love Smurfs, I just found some Clumsy material, I can't wait to use. I love whimsical things. Anything smurf related would be appreciated.
We also like little gumball toys. Any of the little toys are fun to play with Drews' superheros.
I also love Gnomes. We have a small yard off our house, this is where we feed the birds and squirrels, and I'm going to put the Gnomes I'm collecting under the tree.
Things, I enjoy... shopping, looking at craft pages online, looking through magazines to get ideas for new craft projects.
Besides Dotee dolls, I enjoy making ATC's. I recently started using fabric on them and I really enjoy bringing the piece to life. I also like to add stickers and foam shapes to the pictures. My drawing skills aren't great, but I try. Please don't send me any papers for ATCs. Although I appreciate the papers I've received, I rarely get to use the papers, so they just sit around.
There are some ATC series that I'd like to complete, and if you'd like to send me one, I'd appreciate it and give you a heart.
^ Teddy Bear Alphabet ATC. The idea is to have a teddybear on the card doing what the letter is, like a Red Bear for R or N could be night time teddy bear. These are the letters I need. A B E J N O P Q.
^ Zentangle Letter Series: Q
^ Teddy Bear Monthly Series, must have a teddy bear and the month on it. I need January to June.
^ ATC Swap, ? Letter is for.... I need F, H, I, J, K. This swap, you make an ATC for the letter. K is for Kite, and you have to have that letter on the front of the card.
I also like writing. I've written poems, short stories. I am currently working on a childrens book. I enjoy responding to the few pen pals I have.
I love European beads (cheaper versions of the Pandora style). I like coins and learning about different lifestyles.
I've enjoyed getting postcards and coins from other countries. If you'd like to include either that would be great. Or do a private swap, awesome. I like wheat pennies and smashed pennies from places of interest.
** Still having PC problems. I really don't get why the PO has such a hard time sending them on. If you haven't received the PC, let me know and I'll mail you another one in an envie.
Our son is a typical five year old little guy. Its not necessary to send him anything along, but if you did that would give you a heart, for thinking of my little one. He loves Superheros, and most shows on the Hub or Nick Jr. I joke that the only way I can keep up with current events if there was a ticker that ran on those channels. He also likes scooby doo. Currently, he's really into playdoh and legos. We'd love more lego figurines, and used are fine too. :)
I must admit, I usually don't read profiles before I make or send something for my partner, unless the swap says that it has to be profile related... sorry just being honest. I'm trying to work on this though.
I hope that helps give you an idea what to send... if not don't sweat it. Or just ask.
If you haven't received an item from me, please contact me. I know I'm not the best about marking the card exchanges, but seriously how many Holiday card swaps are there? Do some research. I will make it right, if you haven't received the item. I usually mail early before the swap is over. Also, please give sufficient time for the items to be received. Writing to me a week later, and asking me to resend is silly. It takes most mail 10 days to arrive, especially over holidays and weekends.
I also rate the day I receive the item, and I would appreciate the same back.
And finally my big pet peeve. I KNOW life can get in the way of the fun of crafting, but if you know it's your busy time don't sign up for a swap, that you know your going to be late for. It's really not fair to those of us that work hard to get our swap out, and then have to wait, until you find the time.
A new pet peeve, if I've written to you about a swap I haven't received, don't ask me if I want you to resend, I do.... DUH! If I didn't care, I'd mark it a 1 and move on.
The part I didn't want to add.... Flakers, you SUCK! I've been lucky and haven't been flaked on too many times, and most of the time the host has been kind enough to Angel for me.
