About Me

I will be away from Swap-Bot for a while. I had fun but it is no longer a priority of mine. I had sent out my last couple of swaps, cleared off my queue and, after rating my last few when I get them, I don't know when I will return. I have so much on my plate right now with moving, NaNoWriMo coming up in November, then the holidays. Anyways, thank you to those of you who enjoyed swapping with me. To those of you I have been pen-palling with, I'd love to hear from you as it seems my 5 pen pals have stopped writing and I would like to carry on. To the others, have a good time. I'll see you again, I'm sure. Thank you for your understanding.

Came to Swap Bot after my friend Althena kept talking about all the coolness she participates in on here.

I am a happily married, stay-at-home wife. My husband and I have been together 7 years, married for 4. We have 2 fur-babies, ferrets- Bebop Shenanigans and Sway. I also have several plant babies but they are not named.

I own my own business - The Emerald Toad Curiosity Shoppe and tend to work mostly venues such as Renaissance Fairs and Conventions where I read Tarot.

My business and I are Pagan and Proud

I am an Alaskan into steampunk, goth, kawaii, lolita, manga/anime, sweets, thrift shopping, scrapbooking, watercolors, and crochet among many other things.

I am a Sagittarius and my Chinese Zodiac is an Earth Dragon.

Favorite Crafts

Crochet - I make everything from blankets to scarves to amigurumi - my favorites being my steampunk bunnies and my waist cinchers. I am currently working on a beadspread.

Scrapbooking - My main project is my scrapbook book of shadows (there are blogs and vlogs on this project in the site above). I also am working on a Steampunk Scrapbook.

Pyrography/Woodburning - boxes, wooden spoons, small wooden objects.

Beading/Wire-wrapping - I love working with gemstones and copper.

Water Color Painting - I'm not great at it but I enjoy it.

Heads Up: I can't sew...I'm just really bad at it.

Favorite Books

Palimpsest by Catherynne Valente is my all time favorite book. If I had to choose only one book in the world to ever read again, it would be this one. I get something new out of it with every reading. I also like her other works.

Harry Potter - I love love love HP stuff. I'm a Ravenclaw (and I prefer the blue and bronze with the eagle crest like in the book over the movie shenanigans). My husband is a Slytherin.

Stephen King books - The Talisman being my favorite. Also into The Dark Tower series.

Anne Bishop's Black Jewels Trilogy as well as her other works.

Favorite Manga: I LOVE Shoujo manga! MARS, Wallflower, Sailor Moon Occult/Fantasy/Sci-fi Manga: xxxHolic, 3x3 Eyes, Please Save My Earth

Non Fiction

I really enjoy the witchy works of Patricia Telesco.

Lexa Olick has one of my favorite craft books - Witchy Crafts

Teas and Edibles

Favorite Sweets Include: Gummies (not sugar free) Dark Chocolate anything Lavender Milk Chocolate Sugared flowers like roses or violets Old Fashioned candies like horehound hard candy or licorice. Japanese candies like Pocky, Fruit Jellies, odd flavored KitKats, etc.

Allergies

I have a very long list of allergies. Most of these will not have anything to do with a swap but...just in case:

Artificial Fragrance Parabens Petroleum-based products

I do not have any allergies to pets or herbs that I know of.

Speaking of Allergens... I live in a smoking home (I do not smoke myself but I can't promise the smell wont be there) and I have 2 ferrets that get into everything.

Favorite...Misc

Favorite Colors: Purple, Green and Black

Favorite food: Ice cream or Kimchi Ramen (not the 3 minute kind, the real ramen)

Hi there, I tagged you awhile back here - Pick two! for a Steampunk zine and some Hello Kitty items and haven't received anything. Was this sent out? I can give you an address from the US (my mom's) if international shipping is too pricey, just let me know. I was looking forward to the tag for myself and my daughter. Best wishes, Christine
