About Me


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. 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.

Favorite Music

Digging the blues.

Favorite Crafts

Crocheting is my obsession. Yarn is my addiction. I like to play with paper. I find it so relaxing to create something from a pretty piece of paper. I like sewing simple things like pincushions and quilts and aprons. I also like to repurpose stuff when possible.

Dislikes

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.

Things I like

Yarn.

fat quarters

sewing notions

glass beads

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

flavored coffees

catnip & cat toys

ATC's

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.

Colors

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.

Favorite Books

I love short horror stories and anthologies. 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. I like crafting/decorating books also. Not too much into mysteries. I don't like romance novels at all.

My flakers.....

Response: Hii ilikuwa ni mengi ya furaha. I am glad I got wewe kama parnter kwa sababu wewe jumped haki juu ya jambo Kiswahili, na kufanya hivyo hata zaidi fun! It's funny jinsi baadhi ya maneno wala kutafsiri wakati wote.

saw you needed help with the wreck this journal. what I did was google "wreck this journal prompts" and got enough to make up my 50.. what I did was write down all my prompts I would use first.. and then started wrecking it ;-) HOpe this helps.

AlphaChick on Nov 12, 2010:

Thank you so much for the Stephen King book. My husband is very excited. AND thank you for the EXTRA goodies! Happy Swapping!

Loonstruck on Sep 22, 2010:

May I steal your rating swaps blurb? It's the most pithy and even-handed I've seen. (If I do it myself, I'll ramble ramble ramble. Like that.)
