About Me

Hi! I'm loving this swapping thing & connecting with such nice swappers from around the world. I would call myself:
A Mom(of 3 grown wonderful people);
A sewing junkie of many things (Quilts,dolls, slipcovers, clothes, and whimseys);
A gardener and old house restorer; and
Love vintage goodies.Alot.
The colors of Luray dishes (soft pink, aqua, light blue and yellow) make me happy. The tarnished patina of old silverplate and the patterns in the fabric of old quilts are wonderful too. Old black/white photos catch my eye - especially those with animals, children, or old farmhouses. I collect figures and images of birds; anything to do with crows, squirrels and robins; and "Farmish" landscape pictures.

We have a Border Collie(best dog ever), a beloved Siamese (Misha), and a goofy tuxedo cat named Jeeves (of course!)
I think Feedback is the tune that keeps Swapbot going AND I always breathe a sigh of relief when the postal services bring my packages safely to You --- So please drop me a message when they do! (Or else I might have to bug you about it!) If you ever have questions about where the swap is (or anything else) - talk to me! I'm always ready to make these swaps Work! Favorite colors: Light colors of pink, blue, aqua, yellow and green. But combos of red/black, blue/brown, pink/brown, and green/blue are great.

Can't get enough of: chocolate - interesting tins of mints - pens + pencils - colored pencils too - journals + pretty papers - ribbons - letterpress

To make profile swaps easier here are things I'm Not So Fond of: Disney, dollarstore things, scented things, candles or incense, makeup, fabric from JoAnns or Walmart, skulls, goth, or neon colors

Favorite Music

blues, folk, classical, ---- love Josh Ritter, John Gorka, Patty Griffin, Brazil 66, James Cotton, Perry Como, Ella Fitzgerald, even Keith Urban

Favorite Movies

anything Bing Crosby/ Bob Hope, The Thin Man series, Abbott and Costello, slso like sci-fi stuff and mysteries.

Favorite Television

I like shows on HGTV and Sci/Fi. , Jeff Corwin on Animal Planet,24, Dirty Jobs , Project Runway ,Lost

Favorite Crafts

Quilting(love nice all cotton fabrics All colors ); gardening, painting (murals, furniture, floors, etc); collect vintage ephemera for collage and ATCs ; drawing and watercolor; dollmaking; and really have enjoyed the paper crafting this site encourages me to do!

fave flora and fauna

As for user2637, she has appointed herself God and feels like she needs to poke her nose into everyone's personal business. I do not know her, nor do I want to. I have never swapped with her and owe her nothin. She has no right to make ANY comments about me one way or the other. Such a nasty, hateful person. How sad.

Heads up that user @cynaemon is back online and swapping. You may be able to get the the swap from a few years ago that you rated her a 1 for.
