My Blog: Shalom Sweet Home
I'm Jessa, an American girl living in Jerusalem! Read more about me and my adventures on my blog, Shalom Sweet Home (click below):
I'm a graphic designer, writer, artist, crafter, and cook, world traveler, and young wife to my best friend, the 6'3" Ecuadorean astrophysicist! [NOTE: The astrophysicist just joined Swap-Bot! Go stop by and say hi to my @rodiboy :) ] Here we are in our matching Converse.
I love private package swaps and tea swaps. I also love package swaps where we don't necessarily swap the same thing, but different items or collections of items of equivalent value. Message me if you're interested! I particularly love private one-on-one swapping with newbies to help you get your ratings up. (We were all there once!) Let me know if you're interested and what you would like to swap and I'll set it up!
Tea drinking! Traveling! Trying new things!
Iconography! Paper crafts! Watercolor! Crochet! Photography! Gardening! Cooking! Baking! Giving old things new uses!
I speak Spanish fluently and I love to read and write it; please feel free to write to me in Spanish if you are able. I also speak a little Russian, which has been mostly distilled into the parlour trick of writing names in Cyrillic. (Let me know if you want yours!) I'm currently learning Hebrew and can give that a shot as well. :) I'm also fascinated by other foreign languages and other alphabets; I collect the phrase "I love you" in any language I can.
I LOVE to read! My favorite books are those that make you think; either really well-written fiction with wonderfully deep and quirky characters and extraordinary concepts or situations... or non-fiction books from which I can learn something, especially on interesting or bizarre subjects. I also collect old / antique / vintage hardback books with lovely covers.
Please let me know if something doesn't arrive and I'll re-send! Also, I re-use envelopes and packaging and occasionally write letters or send mail on odd scraps of paper... I'm a firm believer in upcycling! :)
I HAVE NO FOOD ALLERGIES OR DISLIKES. I will try anything once, and will most likely love it, so please feel free to be as creative as you like!
If you're totally stuck, here are a few ideas of things that I would love to get, but I also LOVE surprises, so please don't feel like you have to even look at this list!
