CREATIVITY and COMPASSION over PUNCTUALITY
7/2018 - Having recently broken a bone in my foot (first broken bone ever!) which prevented me from sewing and driving, I am acutely aware how life (injury, family, travel, weather, retirement) can affect swapping deadlines (thus my recent 3). I just want to say I appreciate swapper creativity and compassion over punctuality. Especially now that I am retired I want to concentrate on being creative rather than stressing over deadlines. I enjoy crafting too much to be stressed with unreasonable swappers. As much as I have enjoyed swapping and hosting group swaps here, from now on I am going just do private swaps with like-minded swappers. Please PM me if you would like to do a private swap.
sewing, long arm quilting, machine embroidery, crocheting, clay, jewelry, ATC's, American Girl doll clothes making. I like to try most any craft. I am always looking for some new technique to try.
Now that I'm I retired - reading (and crafting!) are top of my list - after I find a place for 35 years worth of school stuff!!
Apparently I am a craft-a-holic (or just a hoarder) but I can't seem to pass up on craft things on sale or at garage sales. So, if you are worried about me liking anything you send me - don't! I love getting inspiration from other's work and bits and bobs from everywhere!
I really like all colors. I like black as an accent color for anything. Since having breast cancer pink has become a favorite color, too. I even rock pink hair every October. Rainbows (traditional or non-traditional) are cool, too.
I am really partial to denim - not sure why. (Maybe its a baby boomer thing.) I never seem to be able to get rid of blue jeans. I have visions of making an awesome denim quilt when I retire!
I also love batiks. Must be the 70’s child in me. Batiks and tie dyes appeal to me!
My birthday is (and my grandmother's was, too) on Valentine's Day - so I am also partial to hearts of any kind!
I love anything music related when it comes to crafts - stickers, paper, etc. I have bought sheet music at yard sales to use for ATCs but frequently can't bring myself to cut it up!
All kinds - I was a digital music teacher so I like to listen to most any kind of music just to be aware of it. My husband and I listen to country music most of the time at home.
As I mentioned before I love anything crafty, homemade or store bought that is music related!
I am pretty accepting of most everything - even the things on this list - but if you are looking for things I am not really into - here some are:
occult, horror, nudity, wicca, flakers!
But - I am happy getting most anything - even these things (well... except the flakers!!!). To each his/her own!
