I am taking a break from this platform to focus on healing. Thank you for all the well wishes!
Thanks for taking time to read my profile.
I am currently struggling with chronic pain due to not one, but TWO accidents that have left my back a fucking wreck. Thank you for your understanding and not being a cock-sucking asshole if a swap is late because I signed up for them well before these unforgivable things happened to my body. Excuses? Who needs em. I'm telling you straight up, if you are an uncompassionate, self absorbed asshole, I will let you know.
I am a Goddess worshiping, tree huggin', environmentally conscious, crafting fanatic. I like many crafts, I've tried lots of things, and my interests are many and widely varied.
I am willing to be a Swap Angel.
Some crafts I have done and still do from time to time are spinning, knitting, crocheting, weaving (both on table top loom, tablet, and free-form), tatting, bead work, bobbin lace,tatting, quilting, stamping, intuitive painting, leather craft, book making/binding, embroidery, herbology/herbal craft (hand-made salves, balms, soaps, salts, etc with wild crafted materials), Sericulture (raising silk moths)
My music tastes are all across the board but a few styles I like are: India Lounge, Desert Dwellers, Dubstep, Hang Drum, Rob Zombie, Nero, Skrillex, Dark Progressive. Chillstep, Thunder and rain (thunder relaxes me).
Djembe, Bass Drum, Native American Flute, Violin
I love all colors of the rainbow.
I love tea. I have not met a tea I have not liked. Feel free to send me one of your favorites! My favorites are:
Black: Earl Da La Cream, Roasted Chestnut, Earl Grey Green: Blue Beauty, Earl Green, Gun Powder Herbal (blends): Most anything with Licorice, Hibiscus, Watermelon, Dandilion Root and blends Elderberry, and Caffeine-Free Chai blends
REAL CHOCOLATE, or specialty (not that milk chocolate junk)
Positive affirmations that are NOT bible quotes are welcomed.
Dark themes are ok as long as they are not blood/gore themed. When I think dark, I think emo/goth.
Rubber stamps, hand carved stamps. prints
Stencils, even handmade
Essential oil based Frankinmurr (frankincense and Myrrh together) incense, temple blends, sweetgrass, india
Pressed flowers and leaves
Fantasy, Myth, and Legendary themes
Dies and/or die-cuts in the above themes
ASSumptions (Draco) If you aren't sure, ASK. (I don't bite....much.) It prevents misunderstands and makes you look more thoughtful than not.
Photo cards/ATC's ATC's with no background work that have had a sticker haphazardly slapped onto them. I mean, come on, really??
Bible quotes. Please save those lines for people who would enjoy them. Sending me these anyways, will result in a poor rating from me. If you can't take the time to look here and see what I do and do not like, then you deserve a low rating. A little thought goes a long way.
Hard Candies (food items), LOVE dark chocolate however.
Hollywood themes (latest up and coming teen singer, etc-etc-etc)
Vanilla, Jasmine incense (I used to burn a lot of these when I was a smoker and now I just plain don't like them since I quit some ages ago).
Perfume that is not oil based. I don't enjoy most perfumes.
Naomi Jess (JessiesRocks) - Failed to send anything or communicate. Removed from AJPE group.
Sofia Värriö (Naali) - No communication, never marked as sent. Coordinator angeled two weeks after send deadline.
"Oh the humanity!" (A dramatization) The swap was late! I had to be contacted! OH! OOOOOohhhh! Here, take my snot-rag to dry your tears. I never thought you would suffer so much if the coloring book was late because of my stupid life issues. God damn me for ever thinking about anything other than swaps that need to be attended to, being in an auto accident and not notifying you, and daring to suffer needlessly and selfishly while your ****COLORING BOOK****, lay on my table, forgotten about causing you to have to....****GASP*****....send a different one in it's place!! I just, I just can't....(squeezes a sob out, although forced).
I am such an impertinent, idle-headed, foot-licker. Have a nice life!!!
pandagigante (Olivia, Warsaw Poland) - Sent her a quaint little tea card made from unbleached natural cardstock with a decorative edge cut into the front flap, embellished with vellum embossed with clocks on the pocket that held the tea, and a belly band stamped with tea cups and colored by hand. I even sent her extra "cute" stickers since I took the time to check her profile to see what she liked. I used a template as directed by swap hostess. She rated me a 5 and then went on to say in the comment section that it was "sad and poor" and made of "cardboard". When I went back to this persons profile, I see now that she is a youngin. Apparently too young to appreciate simplicity. I'm not exactly sure what she was expecting. Maybe gold nuggets. I put my time, energy, materials AND MONEY into this tea card that went to POLAND. Her words were hurtful, unappreciative and immature and I hope she gets the same in return, TIMES THREE! Maybe then, she will develope some tact for future ratings. She needs to learn that art comes in all shades. I am completely flabbergasted by her rating comments. I hope she throws it away because she certainly doesn't deserve it.
Don't be an asshole, otherwise you'll have a nice commentary here about it.
