Things involving felt, glitter, hot glue and feathers. I am learning to quilt, slowly. Along with that, I am learning to sew. I paint, pastel and draw. I love collages and mobiles. I love art and crafts. I knit but cant purl.
I have no expectations from Swap-Bot other than it seems like a great way to make someone happy. I freaking love to get mail and the idea of someone somewhere in the world sending me little tidbits of things or a cool postcard or a letter about their life is just awesome. I love creating and learning and this seems like a great way to combine both!

AS OF APRIL 20, 2010: I am taking a break from swap-bot for awhile. I have loved swapping and look forward to doing it again. But with summer close, a garden to tend to and a vry busy three year old to have tea parties with, I dont have time to craft with quality. I look forward to being back later in the year!
