About Me

Hi I'm Allyson! I am new to Swap-bot but very excited to get started.

I am not the most crafty person you will ever meet, and I envy those who make everything they touch beautiful! But I love it and I do try!

My favorite color is teal, but I hate to define favorites. I love blues, greens, and purples. I also love the color combos of black and white, pink and brown, and teal and brown. Really I just love colorful things :)

I love to be outside, especially at the pool or beach. I also like to take walks and hike. I am recently engaged to a wonderful man named Jason and I am about 4 months pregnant- don't know what the baby is yet!

::Things I like::

-Dachshunds (I have 1 mini and 1 full)

-The ocean and the beach



-Picture frames (decorated.. not just regular wooden ones)


-Fantasy characters like dragons, faeries, vampires, and werewolves (realistic.. think Amy Brown)


-Books (and accessories like bookmarks, bookends, etc)

-Office supplies (loooove them! Sticky notes, cute folders and flags, fun pens, desk accessories, etc!)

-Damask, paisley, polka dots patterns

*Note: My fiancee is severely allergic to cats, so if you get me as a partner and you have them, please just drop me a line so I can make sure not to shove your package in his face (haha.) I love cats though :( I am not a hater!

Favorite Books

I LOVE TO READ. I especially enjoy fantasy and horror. I love Kim Harrison, Charlaine Harris, Jim Butcher, JK Rowling, Stephen King, Robin McKinley, and tons more. I did read and enjoy the Twilight series but I don't like the movies.

Favorite Crafts

My favorite craft is scrapbooking. I am new to crafts such as matchboxes, cardmaking, and stamping, but I am enjoying learning about it! You will probably see evidence of my newbieness in my swaps- if you have any tips I am glad to hear them!

I have tons of scrap papers and ephemera and randomness but I am always looking for more!

Comment: I have tried to contact you about this swap, but you never responded. I also checked the participation list and it said that you never sent a package. Sorry!

Comment: I really love my keychain!!!!!!!! Thank you so much. It really means a lot to me:)
Comment: Marry me. Your stuffed envelope was beyond awesome :) I love the entire CD, fits my taste perfectly. The return address stickers are the coolest thing I've ever seen, the post cards are great -- I think I'll frame the one with a picture of Harvard's library (I love pictures of libraries.) I'm super picky about my ties...but the one you sent is perfect. I haven't listened to the entire CD of King books, but I love it so far (and I've got nothing against it lol) and I've got the batman hanging already :) If I could give you more than a five, I'd give you a 3,000. Thanks so much!

Still waiting to hear if you got my keychain swap. I still have not been rated for it and would like to resend if it was never received. :)
