About Me

11/3 Well, it took me a long time, but I finally got my swap stuff unpacked and set up. (We had a kitchen remodel going on - excuses, excuses - but seriously, my stove was sitting in the middle of my family/living room the whole time and the floor was torn up!). I am planning to send out all my overdue swaps in the next couple of weeks with an added something to thank you for your patience!

8/24 - Husband got a new job - yay! It is still going to take me a while longer - my crafting room is all packed up. I am still planning to send everything out with extra goodies - thanks to all my swap partners for their patience!

8/10 - Update - Partners, I am so sorry that I still am not on the ball. All of my crafting supplies are packed up - everything has been happening so haphazardly and quickly. I don't yet know if we will be moving or not, but I've had to pack up everything because if we do need to it will have to be fast. My husband has a final job interview today, so hopefully life will settle down again soon. Please know that I am still planning to send you your swaps and I am very sorry about the lateness.

7/23 - Swap partners - I have run into a rough spot with personal health problems and also my husband getting laid off (these things tend to happen at the same time), so I will be late with the following swaps - Celestial ATCs, Everyone's an artist ATCs and possibly Geek ATCs and Handmade beads. Please know that I am planning to get all of my swaps sent out, but right now it is all I can do to take care of my daughter and support my husband while we prepare for a possibly imminent move! If there is another swap you haven't received from me, let me know. I have sent out all other swaps. I am also late on rating, but if you send me a message, I can rate you earlier than the others. Thank you for your kindness and understanding.


24, married, stay at home mom to my baby girl, born October 2006. I do an occasional programming project as I got my bachelor's in computer science. I really love bright colors and funky prints; anything wild but not over-the-top I am sure to love (think Amy Butler prints). I love retro stuff, especially technology-related like robots and giant computers. Also retro prints and styles. I think 50s housewifey stuff is a riot and like to redefine crafts that have been labeled "grandma" with funky new applications. I LOVE LOVE LOVE all things Asian - this comes from a very early childhood obsession and I am now trying to learn Mandarin Chinese and also to play the erhu (Chinese violin). Alice in Wonderland stuff is always welcome - my daughter's name is Alice and I am trying to amass a collection for her. I love to make stuff and like to play in many different mediums - I haven't settled down in any one crafty paradigm and don't know if I ever will. I am a super nerd and a video gamer - I was even a video game programmer at one point! I love being outdoors and all that entails - skiing, swimming, hiking, etc. I don't know what else to put here, so if you have any questions or suggestions, please let me know!

Swap Requests: No tea except herbal. I do like green tea scent, though.

No coffee; again coffee scent is okay.

No religious or political items. I am Christian, and I do have political views, but I am picky about things with these themes. If you would like to include information about your religion or political views with your swap, however, feel free!

Please no nudity or gory things! I like old horror flicks, but realistic blood and guts turns my stomach! Also no sexual things or bad words - if it's not work-safe, please don't send it.

I love cool colors (green, purple, blue), but especially BLUE!

I welcome scented items, cutey stuff like kawaii, epherma, little pens, notepads, envelopes, crafty supplies and patterns, postcards, letters, ATCs, pretty much everything!

I collect too many things: metal lunchboxes, candles, bottles, postcards, ATCs, craft supplies, video games, music, travel brochures, recipes, dishes, and more!

About my spreadsheet - I am a stats nut, but I'm not a hall monitor for postmarks :D. If you have any questions about my system, feel free to pm me!

Comment: Thanks! I love all of these. The salesman one cracked me up. The junk mail one was a great use in an artistic way. I love your cut out my heart series one also. :)

Too funny... Our tracking spreadsheets are almost identical!! My family makes fun of me for using Excel for EVERYTHING... Glad to see there's someone else out there who sees the value in it :)

Our last.fm compatibility is "very high", which not only means you have a great taste in music but obviously also means you are a cool, sweet and beautiful person! LOL! :-D
