July 2018- Hello swappy-folk! I returned to swapbot after some needed time away.

I plan to update my profile when time permits as time has passed so have some of my likes and dislikes.

My work can be stressful at times and I've learned to self-medicate with crafting. I use to self-medicate at the waffle house but those days went the way of my weight. I lost 125lbs in the early 2000's and so far have successfully kept it off.

I am a midnight crafter. My choice of crafts are in textiles and soapmaking. I enjoy recycling things into crafted re-loveables.

I travel for work and tend to pack a simple tiny sewing machine which allows me to piece on the road.

Well, that's all for now. More updates to come including info on my in-the-works-podcast. Stay tuned.

April 19, 2013 1AM PST. My sweet little Bingo passed away in my arms. I've never experienced this kind if sadness. The only good part is that I know for sure he is now cancer and pain free. Will be working through his loss as best I can. Thank you for the well wishes and thoughts.

Hello there People of the Swap-Bot Land!

My name is Kaye and I'm a swap-a-holic! Everybody in unison...HI KAYE!

I very much enjoy perusing profiles for my partners to see how I can make swaps of happiness for them. I swap to share and I swap to please by definitely meeting swap requirement and then upping the ante with as permitted(postcard swaps are a challenge) because for me that makes happy mail funll

For me crafting is like a Calgon bath without water and tub** *I make soap, quilt, play with textiles, and upcycle things into fun.

Unless I sign up for an ATC swap please DO NOT send them as extras. do some ATC swaps because they are fun or interesting but that's about it.

I enjoy reading...real books...with pages that actually can be touched and turned :-) There are some books I have re-read several times. Jean Auel's Clan of the Cave Bear series is one, Rita Mae Brown's Bingo is another. I enjoy reading old school books like Daddy Long Legs. I have a very old copy of The Night Before Christmas, beautifully illustrated, bound upside down and backward. It has a special place in my heart. I like C.S. Lewis' work and was thrilled to attend a recent theater production of "The Screwtape Letters". I can't pass a book by Beverly Cleary without stopping to look through it. My favorite genre is mystery. I enjoy getting lost in the who why and wherefore. I tend to read mysteries that are central character based. Earlene Fowler is my favorite mystery writer. I like the coziness of her Benni Harper mystery series. I also like The Saddlemaker's wife books by her.

I am a coffee and tea-a- holic Some of my fave teas include Sadaf Earl Grey, chamomile lavender, toasted rice and (very smoky tasting)Lapsang Suchoung.

Love my Lattes with espresso and milk ONLY.

Manufactured sealed tea bags and coffee are great. Please keep your unwrapped single bags of tea from your favorite box at your home in your cupboard... SERIOUSLY???!LOL

Favorite Crafts

I am a fabriHOLIC a Fabric-**HO! I have a bottomless stash of fabrics yet always on the lookout for that next fun loud strange kooky fat quarter! I like cotton fabric. I like weird, wacky strange fabrics. I have everything from muted mundane to penis fabric to African mud cloth.

I enjoy the tactile touch of textile crafting.

Altered Cigar Box
Inside Altered Cigar Box did not have to be filled but I chose to do so anyway.

Extras- I don't need. While they can be nice, I would prefer a nice and proper swap. For post card swaps I prefer a written note about you, your weekend etc., over a quote, please and thanks.

I"m finally forming a PLEASE DO NOT SEND TO ME list~~~ paper crafting bits and bobs. dark/satanic anything card board-luggage tag looking thingies tiny zip bags full of paper stuff ugly doll/art/etc. No thank you unwrapped single tea bags

Comment: I loved your note. Thank you :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the note and stamps! ♥ Congrats on the ad! You will have to PM when you are able to tell me which ad so I can keep an eye out. I know your area (Glendale, Redondo, Burbank) because I was born & raised in Long Beach (can't remember if I ever told you that). Both of my sons were born there too. I do not envy you in that traffic. One reason I am glad to live in a small town here. 2am "LA Traffic" is what ours is like at rush hour driving to Reno lol! They call it "horrible traffic" and I just laugh!...Maybe I should have just written you a letter HAHAHA
