Hey all, I am going to be drastically reducing my swap-botting for the next couple of months. For those of you who didnt know, I broke an ankle a few weeks back and I have had a couple of complications from that which has resulted in one surgery and at least one other soon. My husband is currently working out of town so, I am trying to make sure that my kids and all are taken care of and everything else gets finished, and I just dont have a lot of time left. I will not be flaking on any of my swaps. I have been trying to let people know if I am sending late, etc, but I PROMISE, no one will be left without anything. Hopefully as things mellow out, I can get back into full swing with swapbot again :) Thanks everyone for understanding
If you do not get a package from me, please PM me before leaving a rating! I am a really easy person to get along with, and I will be more than happy to remake/resend. I also rate usually within a couple of hours of receiving a swap. If I happen to miss a rating, PLEASE PM me so I can do it right away :)
Also, I am all for doing private swaps. If there is something you would like, i can probably make it. Feel free to e-mail me if you are interested in a private swap. :)
Well, let's see... I am 28 years old. I am an amatuer photographer, aspiring writer, wannabe artist, Domestic Goddess, and Supermom. I have 4 great kiddos. My son (Charlie) is 6, my daughter (Chastine) is 2, and I have 3 month old twin girls (Olivia & Gillian)! I am originally from Las Vegas, NV. I moved here to Washington State in November of 2006 right after I got married. I am still trying to get used to the whole small town thing. I like occasionally like to shock the locals, hehe, but, all in good fun.
Some of my hobbies include: Photography, horseback riding, sewing, general crafting, writing. I love to try new projects, and will try just about anything at least once.
My favorite colors are red, purple, black, silver, and blue, although, I can appreciate any color. I dont have any preference to patterns or designs.
I like gothic stuff(vampire type goth, gargoyles, corsets, etc.), I have a little bit of a well-behaved dark side that I like to indulge occasionally :o) I also like pinup stuff, especially Bettie Page.
My favorite animals are Bats, Hedgehogs, Owls, and Squirrels. I also love horses, I have been riding since I was about 5. My favorite dogs are Rottweilers. I had an old guy that I rescued from a shelter when he was 9 and he passed away when he was 12. He was my best bud!
I do not have any allergies that I am aware of :)
In the fantasy realm, I really like unicorns, dragons, and fairies.
I also have an affinity for the 30's & 40's and anything to do with that time. It was such a classy era :)
I am a very spiritual person and I have my own beliefs, but, I would prefer not to get religious items, unless they are Pagan (or that type of item). If I do get anything religious, I wont send any type of nasty e-mail I would probably just pass them along to my Dad, Stepmother, or my Grandma).
There really isnt anyhing that I dont enjoy. If it is something I dont want/cant use, I can always find someone who will :) I am cool to receive items from the Dollar Store. I have an EXCELLENT dollar store where I live and I can get some very cool stuff from mine that isnt junky!
My wishlist includes:
Cotton Thread (like for a sewing machine) in any and all colors!
APRONS! I have fallen in love with all of the cool aprons that people make on here and I would love to receive one (or more ;))
FABRIC!!! Just about any type, design, etc. of fabric would be awesome. I especially like the vintage style prints that are out now with the kids, pinup girls, etc.
Postcards from all over for my son. He has just recently began to collect postcards, and would love to get them from all over the world (So far he has stolen all of mine that I have been sent, hehehe)
Tinkerbell Stuff for my daughter. She found the Peter Pan Movie recently and watches every day. She LOVES Tinkerbell.
Embroidery Floss! All different colors, styles, etc.
a rotary fabric cutter
Scrapbook paper especially in fantasy prints, etc.
Button Fairies, Dragons, or whatever button creatures you would like to make!
Ribbons, beads, wild yarns, wool, mohair, brads, buttons, paper scrapbooking flowers, and all those cool little odds and ends that I can use for accents, hair on dolls, etc.
Keychains from other countries (I love unique little keychains from different countries)
I would really like to get items from (or realted to) Scotland and Ireland. Postcards, pictures, keyrings, touristy stuff, pretty much anything. I have a personal project that I am working on and I can really use these items.
Handmade stuffies, felties, and dolls. I would REALLY love to get amigurumi items especially monkeys,squirrels, hedgehogs, & owls. I also have fallen in love with "Ugly Dolls" (Just google 'Ugly Dolls' and you can see what they are if you are unsure)
Shrines (I would LOVE to have a Goddess Epona shrine! But, I would be happy with whatever creative shrines I can get)
Handmade Jewelry and Hair clips/barrettes
Anything with old style tattoo flash (sparrows, pin-up girls, sailors, etc. I am really into the Sailor Jerry stuff right now)
Christopher Moore books. Used copies are just fine. ANY of his titles would be awesome.
Anything Sweeney Todd! I have fallen in love with that movie. (A burned copy of the movie or soundtrack would be AWESOME!)
Hedgehog Kawaii stuff (Too cute!)
A Pro Flickr account
If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail me, and I will be happy to answer.
I love all types of music. I am not a big country music fan right now though (although, I will always listen to George Strait and Willie Nelson :)). I particulary love "Mood" music (Enya, Enigma, Loreena McKennit, any type of Celtic Music, and I also like Bagpipe Music). I also like bands like Type O Negative, Godsmack, Disturbed, etc.

Sewing, photography, doll/stuffie making which is a recently acquired hobby, I enjoy altered art and I have been giving that a go as of late as well. I do a little bit of all types of crafting, and I will try just about anything at least once. I love to go to craft shows so I can get new ideas.
