7/12/12 - Finally I got home yesterday. I was able to get through all the fun stuff I have received and got my ratings posted today. Thanks so much to all the wonderful swappers that have been so patient with me this month.
7/6/12 - I was suppose to be home tomorrow, but life as we know can through things that we don't expect. I will not be home for a few more days. I am sorry for the delay, I know that several swaps are sitting at home waiting for my attention (my hubby is there and he told me so).
I will rate as soon as I get there, please be patient with me. Thanks for your understanding.
6/2/12 - I am going on vacation.
I have only joined a few swaps, I will be able to make the swaps from my end, but I wanted my partners to know that I will not be able to receive and then rate till July. I will be out of town, any swaps sent to me will be safe but I will not see them till I return (July 7th). Most of the swaps that I have signed up for end around the end of June or in July. This should not be a problem, but I wanted you to know it.
a mother, a wife, a crafter, a reader, a walker, and can be found on the computer a lot.
big into recycling, my kids are big into recycling and some of our craft projects contain stuff that have been recycled (so don't be surprised if you get something that has been recycled, up-cycled or re-purposed). I also tend to re-use envelopes, especially the padded ones.
I like to think of myself as crafty, but not sure how good I am compared to some of you regulars. I hope I can do ok.
Please be patient with me while I get my barrings with this site, this style of sharing and these guidelines of crafting.
Thanks ~ Debbie

I am a big crafter (get it from my mom), have enjoyed knitting and crocheting for years, recently started to learn how to quilt (doing a Block of the Month on Craftsy). Done a lot of paper crafts lately including scrap booking, card making, stamping and bookmarks. I have done some (but not much) beading and jewelry making. Recently started making hair bows for my kids and allllll their friends. (Will be posting pictures of bows on my flickr, but they are not there yet)
What I have to help decide what I like and / or want .....
I have 2 kids (both girls),
I have 2 cats (both girls), my poor husband is surrounded by us girls.
I enjoy watching movies and tv,
Love to collect books and bookmarks too.
I volunteer at kids schools,
I like to run 5K's (for fun),
Have an assortment of t-shirts and jeans.
I spent lots of time at the public library,
I am learning sign language,
I like the color blue (most all shades),
I like the number 3,
I seem to be collecting ribbon and fat quarters now days.
I also like stationary - paper products.
I love the moon and the promise of a new day to follow.
mmm what else,
let me know if you can think of anything else I should include and I will.
Thanks for including me in this great Swap-bot site.
I am new at this, so anything goes - for now. I may change that statement later.
Items I am looking for --
** Other things that I would like are:
I had never heard of Kawaii until I started swapping her on Swap-Bot, have to say I am interested now. Wouldn't mind getting some and learning more about them.
Been doing Playing Card Swaps, I am actually building a new deck and getting a few extra for altering into ATC's. What fun, but I am still missing some (a lot actually).
Here is a list of what I NEED:
* Hearts: Jack, 9, 8, 2
* Spades: King, 9, 8, 6, 4, Ace
* Clubs: Queen, 9, 8, 4, 3, Ace
* Diamonds: Queen, Jack, 9, 7, 6, 5, 4, 2
I am a little bummed, one of my first swaps - I sent mine out, marked it sent, received mine, rated the sender, but one of the people I sent to (it was a 5 partner swap) still has not rated me. I have seen several people call out flakers on this site and I may do the same ..... later.
I just wanted to say that .....
* I will send out (hopefully) on time but I will never NOT send out my swap. I have been doing 'exchanges' on other sites for a long time and been late a few times, but never neglected to send out my exchange.
* I will always rate within a day or 2 of receiving my swaps. I don't like waiting to know if someone got something and so I won't make anyone else wait to see if I got a swap.
* I really like this site so far and want to do my part to keep it going and to keep others doing it with me.
