As of February 1st, 2014, I will not be online for ONE FULL MONTH. That does not mean I'm only checking messages occasionally. I WILL NOT BE ONLINE. I am participating in Lettermo (see info below). If you have questions/concerns or just want to say hello, I won't know you've sent me a message until MARCH. If I have agreed to angel for a flaker and you have not sent me your address, you will have to wait until March. If you have a concern about the swap I'm currently hosting, it will have to wait until March. (Speaking of said swap, I will create #2 when I am back online - thanks for your patience!). If you notice that I havent logged on in 6 or 13 or 23 or 29 days...I am still here, I am ok and I look forward to swapping with you all when i return! Have a great February!! :)

÷÷÷ I am participating in www.lettermo.com in February. If you would like a letter from me, please message me your contact info! (Lettermo is a dedicated month of giving up the internet, and pledging to write and send at least one letter a day.)÷÷÷
÷÷÷ PRIVATE SWAPS! As of late, the majority of my swapping experiences have been....disappointing. I would love to do more personal, private swaps for the following things: tea wallets, tea, coffee, 8 inch quilt squares, sewing projects, ATCs, postcards, stuffed envelopes, letters, profile based packages, etc ÷÷÷
This is Lightning. She escaped and spent a month yard hoping, terrorizing neighbours and fornicating with wild rabbits likely twice her age. She's home now, and not even a little bit happy about it.
This is Murphy, our rescue pup. He is a 3 1/2 month old german shepherd/walker coonhound.
This is Sid, also a rescue. He is a 2 1/2 year old labrador retriever/great pyreness. He is an 80 lb lap dog.
(I have two lovely boys as well. Pictures of whom I dont post on public forums. Believe me though, theyre adorable ;)...)
Conversation subjects I enjoy:
Budgeting and personal finance (odd I know - and I know these are personal for most people.) I love comparing things like; weekly grocery budgets, where and how you save money, what wont you compromise on to save money? Debt snowballing and payoff stories.
Food allergies. Do you have them? Do your kids have them? What are they? What reactions do you have? Coping with them socially. What has been the hardest part?
Food in general. Ways of eating. Are you a Vegetarian? Paleo? Gluten free? Etc? For how long, and how did you come to that decision? Do you trust commercialized food? Conventional food preperation and processing. Factory farming. Agribusiness. GMOs. Food additives. Growing your own food. Thoughts on soy safety? Eating disorders. Food fear. Do you eat out alot? Cook your own? Etc, etc, etc!
Attachment parenting. Breastfeeding. Baby wearing. Cosleeping. Frustrations. Suprise pregnancies. Teen pregnancies. Funny stories. Anything parenting related.
Anxiety and Depression. GAD? Social anxiety? OCD? How do you cope? Is someone close to you affected? Conventional treatments vs. Alternative medicine treatments. What are you obsessive about? Does talking about it help or trigger an attack?
Conspiracy theory. Population control. Government and industry corruption. Sheeple. Etc.
Hobby farming. Do you live on one? Have you ever? Raised on one? Any farm stories. Gardening ideas. Urban farming/gardening. Greenhouse plans. "Farmers Almanac" kind of stuff.
Quilting. Sewing. Singer sewing machines. Current, old or future projects. Who tought you how to sew? Where in your house do you sew? Do you have a sewing room? Crafting, drawing, creating. Homemade Christmas gift ideas.
Lots of love for:

TEA (ANY - dark teas have always been a safe bet for me, but I like discovering new flavours. Nothing with vanilla though please. I wont fault you for it, as Ill probably still drink it. I just havent found a tea with vanilla in it that ive really enjoyed...oh, and im a bit of a tea snob, in which I prefer organic tea - ive read so much about pesticide use in teas, even formaldehyde showing up in certain teabags - gross. Organic is just a preference, not a requirement, and not all teas I send will be such. Some non organic brands are better than others. Please dont send me any tea by Celestrial Seasonings.)
NOVELS (ANY GENRE)
MITTENS, HATS & SOCKS (wool, especially)
ANY DOODLES - like the kind people do when theyre on the phone, or waiting for news...(CAN BE DRAWINGS, HANDWRITING, ETC ON PAPER, NAPKINS, ENVELOPES, ETC)

NOTE PAPER & ENVELOPES
I write ALOT of letters, so any paper, pens, envelopes, etc. are GREATLY appreciated.

ARCHIE COMIC BOOKS
COLLECTIONS OF SMALL THINGS (rocks, acorns, buttons, etc)

Please no... candy, hate (swearing and vulgarity is totally fine), cartoons (vintage ok), hello kitty, manga, anime, video games, makeup..
