I take this swapping very seriously and I promise never to flake!
I work really hard on my swaps. I'm totally down for 1 on 1 swaps with awesome swappers who love to make things and DO NOT FLAKE!!
Feel free to send me a message :)
My name is Robin and I'm 32. I love Cooking and baking. I can make anything if I try. Even wedding cakes, they look awesome too! I absolutely Love cupcakes. I live in Portland, Oregon in a very colorful house with my cat Dixie. It's full of art projects, toys, fun things and good food. I'm very artistic and love crafts of all kinds, except I never really learned much about knitting.( i can make a scarf though) I've been to many different countries and enjoy all cultures. I love to travel!
When I was growing up ( starting at age 5!) my family had some one from a different country living with us every year. Some years we would have more than one exchange student. It was a really great time in my life and when I was 15 I started to travel with my mom to visit kids that had been to our home. I even got to see my pen pal in Japan! I was so young, we called each other "hamburger & cheeseburger" :) I really haven't had a pen pal since but I really wanna do it again. Then maybe if I meet a really great person I could go visit some day. I love learning about different foods in all the countries. I guess that I would try anything, (well not everything) i've seen some weird stuff. I'm not into eating bugs ;-0 weird!!
I love all kinds of music.. My favorites are: The Cramps, Ramones, Kinks, Rolling Stones, AC/DC, T-Rex, 13 Floor Elevators, Sam the Sham, Otis Redding, The Ventures, The Chocolate Watch Band, Love, The Donnas, Killers, Iggy Pop, Alice Cooper, Clap your hands and say yeah, Death Cab for Cutie, Rodrigo Y Gabriela, The Animals... Any old Spanish Rock and Roll.
So you get a little bit of an idea of what I enjoy. I like Rock, pop, silly, and instrumental music. 60's nuggets, 70's (not so much disco) and 80's.
Right now i'm reading the Outlander series, by Diana Gabaldon. I'm on the fifth book The Fiery Cross. There huge novels, all around 1500 pages each. It's about a eighteenth-century Scotsman (Jamie) and his time-traveling wife (Clare) AMAZING!! read em'
I also read alot of cooking type of magazines. I've been saving pages out of ones that interest me for years. The pile is quite big now. I keep thinking im gonna make some sort of scrapbook out of em'.
