PLEASE NOTE: Please don't confuse me with "iheartswap" on here or "iheartswap" on Flickr (not me). Sorry for the confusion, I should have been more creative with my user name ;)
FOR SWAPS: I will ALWAYS send a swap. If I can't make the deadline, you will hear from me first. If you haven't received a swap from me, please contact me before rating me and I will make it right. I swap to delight myself & others.
I'm married to my high-school sweetheart and raise children full-time (3 little boys). I also work part-time at a bookstore (for sanity and pleasure).
I enjoy MANY genres and styles of art & also crafts. I'm outgoing and social, but only have a few close friends. I try to live a simple life. Our family is part of a CSA farm, which nourishes our bodies and soul.
I frequent thrift stores, parks, farmer's markets, coffee shops, and anywhere books are sold. I have a healthy addiction to tote bags, paper, coffee & tea, owls, the color brown, and swapping.
Please send a note along with your swap so I know a bit about you, but also so I know which swap it's for ;)
Paper crafts. Rubber stamping. Altered books. Altered & recycled art projects. Handmade & unique journals. Journaling. Hand-sewing little felt items.
