PLEASE READ!!

I JUST WANT TO LET EVERYONE KNOW THAT IF I HAVE A SWAP I HAVENT SENT YOU PLEASE DO NOT WORRY I WILL BE SENDING SOON.

I WAS IN A CAR ACCIDENT IN JUNE AND JUST NOW AM OUT OF THE HOSPITAL. I WILL BE UNABLE TO WORK FOR A FEW WEEKS YET BUT I SHOULD BE ABLE TO SIT AT MY SEWING MACHING / CRAFT TABLE AND BE ABLE TO GET CAUGHT UP ON MY SWAPS.

I WILL EMAIL EACH OF YOU AS I SEND OUT YOUR PACKAGES.

I HOPE YOU CAN ALL UNDERSTAND.

THANK YOU!

Favorite Books

John Steinbeck is my all time favorite author. I also like to read books that are suspensful and on occasion I have been known to steal my teens books and read them (spiderwick, harry potter, 39 clues, etc...) I know it is silly and way below my reading level, but they are such fun fictional reads and besides I have always thought I was quite immature for my age. :)

Favorite Crafts

Sewing, Quilting, Stamping, Crocheting, Apliquing, Scrapbooking, Candle Making, Soap Making, Jewelry design

Favorite Television

The Office

Big Love

Lost

True Blood

Favorite Music

I like a variety of music, primarily rock, hip-hop, bluegrass, and oldies.

However, when I am in my car I don't usually listen to music, I listen to National Public Radio instead. I like to listen to Here and Now, The Story, Wait, Wait don't Tell Me, A Praire Home Compainion, and Talk of the Nation.

About Me

I am a wife and mother to 4 children, 3 boys ages 7, 12, 13 and a daughter age 16. I work full time as a Logistics Manager for a trucking company. I am a total pet person and have 4 dogs and 2 cats. 3 of the dogs are dachshunds and one is a Chihuahua.

I love to travel but haven't had much of an oppertunity to do too much of it. I've been to Peru where I visited Machu Picchu, and I went on a Caribbean Cruise to Curacao, Aruba, St. Marteen, and St. Thomas. I've also been to Washington D.C. and Las Vegas and of course lots of beautiful places here in Michigan and down in Ohio.

Favorite Colors

Greens, Yellows, Blues, Fushias

I love modern florals, and geometric prints.

I also love fun fabric prints with cartoonish or kiddie drawings on them (like Japanese style)

Rep

Dislikes

stripped fabric,

cheap fabric,

old-style country things (modern country is fine),

free postcards (like from magazines),

dollar store items,

candy,

Handmade items Please!!

I love handmade items!!!! If I had a preference I would choose handmade over store bought everytime. Favorite items to receive are:

crocheted items like dishcloths and stuffies,

sewn items,

paper crafted items,

felted items,

handmade holiday home decor,

jewelery (especially brooches)

I'm not perfect

I just want to be straight forward with everyone in that I have one (1) rating. I am not proud of it and I can't even explain why I have it other than I thought I had sent it and then when I realized I hadn't I was going to send it and then time passed and I never sent it..:(

I would like to make it up to this particular swapper but I have yet to hear back from her.

The swap was from Oct. / Nov. 2009.

Please know that I feel very bad about this as I have been flaked on by several people and would love to redeem myself with this person should she take me up on the offer...

...until then I am burderened with this scarlet number......Rene
