Updating my profile is difficult as so much has changed in the past year.
I'm 34, with three sweet puppies. I'm from northwest Arkansas, USA, but I've lived in Puerto Rico for almost seven years.
My husband took his own life in April 2017 after a lifetime of struggling with depression, and my life has changed entirely since then. His death, along with the Cat 5 hurricane that hit 5 months later, have left me struggling to figure out who I am and what I want. If nothing else, I am a more truthful person (and I was pretty straight up to begin with). I'm trying to get back to crafting as it brings me joy, and I don't have a lot of that these days. #sorrynotsorry for the honesty; many people are dealing with these same issues, and there is no reason to be ashamed.
I will ALWAYS send out my swaps! If you don't receive my swap, please private message me (before rating) so that I can resend. I will also ALWAYS rate promptly, and I trust that others will do the same. Thank you!
Just to avoid confusion: Puerto Rico is a US territory. We use USPS, so flat rate boxes ship here with no problem, and a 49-cent forever stamp will send a letter of up to one ounce here, just like on the mainland. Convenient, eh? :)
However, please keep in mind that I do live on an island, so it may take a couple extra days (weeks sometimes) for swaps to reach their recipient. Please be patient.
