I'm a stay-at-home mom to two little girls, and I love to craft! My favorite crafts are knitting and sewing, but I dabble in some others. I'm obsessed with purple, turquoise, and rainbow motifs, and I love nature. Arts and crafts with nature themes rock my world!
I am completely engrossed in parenting, and I'm hoping to force myself into more crafting and interaction with adults through this site. That being said, I believe very strongly in the tenets of attachment parenting, unconditional parenting, and unschooling. I believe that children should be treated with respect and unconditional love and acceptance, even if that means they choose something that isn't your cup o' tea. This stance on parenting has pretty much become my identity, so please forgive me if I talk too much about it!
If you are sending any food items, please be sure that they don't contain any animal by-products such as gelatin, cochineal, etc. I am mostly vegan (only eat eggs from my pet chickens), so this stuff grosses me out! Thanks for understanding!

Really, I will listen to pretty much anything except hardcore rap. I love to listen to music, but I'm not nearly as "into" it as I was way back in the day.

I was an English major in college, so I've done quite a bit of reading! I really like jazz-age fiction and some contemporary fiction as long as it has some substance. Non-fiction has never been my favorite, but I'm starting to use it as a reference for gardening and parenting.

Since joining swap-bot, I've gotten the desire to do some paper crafting, even though I have NO experience!

This is by no means a wish list, just some helpful guidance!
It never fails that I craft for everyone except myself, so these are some of my crafted wishes that I'll probably never get around to making myself:
Also, I love handcrafted stuff for my kids, but I never get around to doing it. I would love to do some swapping for these types of goodies :-)
