Swap-Botting since August 2007
God is good!
I still do not have a job and it doesn't look like I'll be falling in to one any time soon. The economy is so awful. I hope our new President can do something. We're OK, not great but OK. There are many others who are in terrible shape
We're moving. If we can pull it off and manage to sell the old house it will relieve huge amounts of pressure.
If you are stressing about getting my swap to me on time, please don't. Shoot me a PM and let me know... I will completely understand and won't hold it against you!
That doesn't mean it's OK to flake, just that I'm understanding. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE RATE YOUR SWAPPER!!!!
Also, please note that I generally do not mark the outside of my package with what's inside (though there are sometimes clues) to prevent theft. You will have some sort of communication of what swap and who I am, though.
I mostly like mellow "coffee house" type music. John Mayer, Ben Taylor, Barenaked Ladies, stuff like that. Sting is my absolute favorite musician.
I pretty much just put the satellite to Coffee House or the Grateful Dead Channel on Sirius and stay there.
Anyway, not a big musicphile. That would be my husband.
I'm very very easy to please and I'll be thrilled with anything. I really mean that. If you are going to be late or having difficulties, please let me know and all will be well.
I'm just a normal gal with a husband, a gorgeous 8-year-old daughter, three crazy felines, a 3 lb chihuahua and 1 guinea pig. (if anyone wants a guinea pig, please let me know. I gotta get rid of them)
My favorite color is green, and I like muted, natural, warm tones.
I like Amigurumi, kawaii, Chococat and anything artsy with cats on it.
I'm a Girl Scout leader and trainer when I'm not crafting or taking care of my family. I have a 3 year old long haired chihuahua named Maggie who loves to snuggle. She's happy as long as she's in my lap.
I have 2 year old cat named Yuuki (from Myazaki's Cat Returns movie) who we also call Curious George from time to time because she's such a little rascal. She's black and white American Shorthair and very sweet. She talks a lot, too.
Angel is the oldest and also very sweet when she's not peeing on stuff. ARRRRG!!! She's Three and we'll see if she makes it to Four.
Finally there's NeeChee, the baby. We found him in the woods where he'd been left for the hawks to eat. He was skin and bones but has blossomed under our care into a gorgeous young man with a shiny coat and big bright eyes. Well, one eye- he lost an eye. He's very sweet and affectionate, loves to snuggle and purrs very very loudly.
CROCHET!!! I live to crochet and lately I'm making a lot of amigurumi. I have made a lot of doilies and my favorite doily designer is Patricia Kristofferson. My husband thinks I'm nuts because I make doilies then give them away, but what am I supposed to do with them?
I know how to even count peyote stitch but would like to learn the other methods of beading, sadly this will cut into my crocheting time...
I've been crafting my whole life and work on things from paper crafts to beaded jewelry. I try to do recycled things or found art.
I've also started sewing because I came into a huge cache of free fabric. I'm doing totes and zipper pouches. FUN!
Big points to anyone sending me Pink Flamingo stuff... it's my daughter's favorite! She has also recently discovered Pocky and loves it! (since she's ALWAYS hungry please send more!!! I can't feed her fast enough!)
My daughter is 8 years old and ALL GIRL. She's incredibly sweet and kind and all around good kid. She's very honest and thoughtful.
She's just the most incredible little person I know (and I know a lot of little people). I know, I know, I'm her mother I'm supposed to gush about her, but I'm telling you that the kid is incredibly special. She's the best.
She loves bright colors, Hannah Montana, Suite Life of Zack and Cody. She takes after her mother in being a major animal lover.
Her favorite subject in school is math. She loves to read and "do art". She started at a new school this year for gifted kids and has really blossomed... but she also has to work much harder than ever.
Walnuts, Raw tomatoes, dust, many kinds of wood (just the pollen and sawdust), I have very sensitive skin and don't wear makeup. I also have sensitive lungs and don't wear perfume much, but I do like scented candles and oils, etc.
I HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE the smell of cigarettes and smoke. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE all things lavendar scented.
I'm married to a wonderful man who takes good care of me. He does all the cooking, but I'm the baker (and not bad, if I do say so myself). I know how to cook, but he's much better at it. His specialty is BBQ and Italian food.
I'm not much into sports, though I'm forced to watch MLB, golf and tennis b/c of my husband. (he's a Mets Fan) I have to admit that I like watching tennis.
Anyway, he's a History Professor at a top 10 rated private liberal arts college. He used to be a lawyer and hated it so he quit and went back to school for his PhD. He now has tenure whew! So we will probably not ever move.
I would LOVE to receive a Pocky Bag.
Otherwise, I could also use
*ALTOID GUM!!! It's so hard to find!
*Sugar Skull anything (brighter the better!)
*Buttons and Beads
*Glue (preferably Aileen's)
*Embroidery floss (especially black)
*Kawaii Stickers and stuff (not standard Sanrio, I can get that easily enough)
*Girl Scout/Guide anything, especially membership pins from other countries than the US (I'm collecting) and US Council "Hamburgers" for all age groups
*Clean, non-smoky yarn (cheap acrylic stuff is great, even)
*Anything handmade with care by you!
