About Me

I collect and love anything cute woodland themed...fox, deer/fawn, owl, squirrel, etc etc related... mostly I LOVE gnomes and Matryoshka dolls (anything with these things on them are also wonderful.)

I love hand crafted items that people pour their heart into. Hand crafted fabric things that are sewn, embellished, or embroidered...are always treasures to me.

If you can draw, paint, sculpt, felt, embroider, sew (you get the picture..lol) me a schnauzer, shitzu, horse or cockatiel, I'd love that so much & I'll display it in my home proudly and cherish it forever!

I recently had a swap partner who collects decorated wooden letters from people everywhere (for the first letter of her name) that she hangs on her wall as a collection! I love that idea and want to do the same thing for my family! So if you send a decorated R (for my son,) M for my daughter K (for myself,) or F (for our last name Fox,) that would just be sooo cool!!!! Of course any letter you can send out of any of those is fine, noone's feelings will be hurt if you dont send their letter, we will just be tickled to receive any of them!!!

Random other things I would love to receive...

-Keurig K cups (any flavor coffee, tea, or cocoa)

-Lindt chocolate bars (any of them are sooo good, but my favorite is the salted dark chocolate bar...if you have never had one..you have to try it...soooo good!)

-any kind of salted chocolate or caramel candies...omg...to die for!

I also love hand stamped jewelry, but I don't know how to do it, so if you happen to know how to make it, please pm me and maybe we can do a private swap.

I love Etsy, anything from my etsy fav's is always greatly appreciated!

A little about our pets...

We have four dogs, a shepard/hound mix we adopted from the pound (Chelsea,) two mini-schnauzers (Riley and Clara,) and the youngest is a shitzu (Houdini.) We also have two cockatiels, they are so much fun! We also have a guinea pig.Someday, my daughter and I would love to have horses! We love all animals!

Favorite Crafts

Aside from crocheting and sewing, I like to do scrapbooking, card making, or any kind of paper crafting, stamping, making jewelry, quilling, cross stitch, and embroidery. I would be thrilled to receive anything for sewing... Fabric, machine thread, embroidery thread (spool or floss,) zippers, ric rak, double fold bias tape, etc.

Not really into anything "country style" or dollar store type items.

I like punk but not goth...not into anything vampire either....actually anything "dark" is not my thing...

I LOVE gnomes, mushrooms, and cute woodland themes. I also love the Matryoshka Russian nesting dolls or anything to do with them! I have finally started a collection of the nesting dolls!

We're also always on the look out for tiny miniatures...for my sons printers tray.

If you are able to send something from my profile that is wonderful, but if not, totally fine too! I am not as picky as I may sound ;-)

I am not a flaker and if for some reason you do not receive a swap from me, please pm me because chances are it got lost in the mail and I will not hesitate to resend if needed. I never, ever flake but unfortunately, it has happened to me a quite a bit...:-(

I can only hope that I please you with what I send...I read all profiles of partners I'm swapping with and do my best to go above and beyond with every package I send. If you do not like what I've sent, I apologize in advance, as I would NEVER send you something that I do not love & will ALWAYS try my hardest to send what YOU love and always send quality items and hope you would do the same for me...

I love shopping on Etsy so if we are in a swap together, I will be looking for your Etsy fav's link on your profile to see what your tastes are. If not...that's fine...I will still try my hardest to find what I think you will love!

Favorite Books

All Crochet books or patterns, Sewing books or patterns, Paper Crafts books, embroidery or cross stitch books or patterns, any kind of craft or how to book inspires me!

Favorite Movies

The Notebook, Titantic.....anything inspiring, romantic or funny.... family friendly movies are always good!

Favorite Colors

I love red & turqouise combined....(with or without white too.) this is my favorite color combination right now! I love pink/red/orange combined together (with or without yellow too.) I like greys, pinks (but not mauves,) peaches, lemons, melons, berries, oranges, aquas, greens (lime and sage greens especially... Not a fan of dark green though.) I also like all different shades of red, but not a fan of maroon or burgandy. I also like black & white together. Pink/green, orange/pink, purple/grey, yellow/grey, Always love these combos too! :D

My children

My kids have noticed how much I am in love with swapping and that I often send things to the kids of the swappers I swap with if they have a wish list for their kids and they have asked that I include a little "wish" list for them on my profile..now don't get me wrong, my kids have been taught not to ask people for things.... which is why it's called a "wish" list...(they love receiving snail mail too...no matter how big or small....)

Reece, my son, who is 9 would love to receive: anything Lego related, tiny miniatures (he has a printers tray with lots of spots to fill, anything fox related (figurines, prints, cards, stuffed animals, etc), all chocolate and candy (esp gummies & jolly rancgers,) kid science kits/science or airplane related items, anything with Monster drink logo he would love it!

Madalyn, my daughter, who is 12 would like anything hello kitty, or sanrio. Loves makeup (esp Mac & urban decay), perfume samples, nail polish (loves essie & opi,) lip gloss, nail decals, Lush store items, kawaii items, kawaii stickers, cute notepads, cute mechanical pencils or pens, anything with cockatiels or horses on it, fashion or teen magazines, teen style hair accessories, feather headbands or earings, big flower rings! Anything with horses... Books, magazines, figurines, photos, prints, etc. Anything for her 18" American Girl dolls!

Thank you in advance if you include my two favorite people in the world! Thanks in advance if you decide to include them in your packages...
