I only sign up for swaps I know I can do and have time for. I always rate. If you don't receive something from me please let me know so I can rectify it immediately.
I live in Massachusetts with my husband and two girls - ages 7 & 17. Between working full time 45 - 50 hours per week and taking care of my family/house/everything else, I try to get some crafting done. Not easy sometimes. Sometimes I don't get to craft at all. :-(
I have a slightly warped sense of humor. All right, more than slightly. It's totally warped. You can't really offend me. I must add here that my young daughter likes to open my swaps, so please label the outside if there's anything over PG-13 rated inside.
I have a tremendous dislike of having to chase down swaps I am owed. I'm a reasonable person, if you cannot send to me on time it's up to YOU to notify ME, not for me to figure it out by going to your profile after the fact. If you choose not to communicate with me then I choose to rate you according to the guidelines set about for all of us.
Black Keys, Cake, Beck, White Stripes, Band of Skulls, Modest Mouse, Big Head Todd & the Monsters.
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Men of a Certain Age, The Office, Northern Exposure, Big Bang Theory, Z Rock, Arrested Development, Walking Dead, Food TV.
I don't know why I like those cake shows so much. Why are there even shows about cake? .
Can't get enough time in my day to play with paper. I find it so relaxing to create something from a pretty piece of paper. I also like sewing simple things like pincushions and quilts and aprons, making ATC's, wire wrapping beads and other miscellaneous stuff for jewelry, and wire crafts. I also like to repurpose stuff when possible.
I don't like cutesy/character things like Hello Kitty or Disney items.
Seen Kawaii and I'm not a fan.
Religious items that are pushed on to me. I don't believe in religion.
Cheap stickers turn me off. Really off. Please don't send me stickers.
I also do not need any paper scraps. I have so much already that I will probably just throw it out.
Again-please no stickers.
interesting embellishments for ATCs
chocolate-except for white "chocolate". That's just wrong.
magazines of any kind
anything dark & humorous
hand drawn stuff-I don't have this talent myself so I hold it in very high regards
catnip & cat toys
odd things from nature-weird looking nuts, bones, leaves, twigs or stones
Any little quirky thing, especially if it's hand made.
I truly do appreciate anything that you've taken the time to make.
I like earth tones. Browns, greens, pinks and creams are my favorites.. I don't really care for pastels, and fluorescent ANYTHING would be horribly horrible. Ick.
I love short horror stories and anthologies. (Not Stephen King, all done with him). Anything on the paranormal/supernatural fascinates me, fictional or non-fictional, excluding vampires, I'm tired of vampires. I like historical fiction, stories in general about people's everday lives. Trivial books are good, like the Darwin Awards or Guiness Book. I like crafting/decorating books also. Not too much into mysteries. I don't like romance novels at all.
Good smells: All citrus fruits, ginger, pineapple, pumpkin/spice, lilac, a freshly washed person right out of the shower, cedar trees, lily of the valley
Bad smells: Cigarettes, vanilla, lavender, mildew, cheap pine, cat butt
