6-2-09 So, I hope that everyone has been having a great year so far.:) I haven't done a swap in so long now so I decided to do a least one this month.:) Those of you who have left me messages here, thankyou. It's always nice to get a nice message from someone. Take care all and happy swapping! ~Salina
~~~~~~~~~~~ 12-31-08 Hello all! So are you ready to face the new year and make it your best year ever? I am.:) I have opened two new stores since I was here last. One on Etsy and one on ArtFire. Lov.li is mostly a place now where I show some of my sold items. Don't sell on there as much. Haven't sold a whole lot yet but I know that I will when I am able to devote more of my time making more things to sell.:) Please visit me at my blog and leave me some good comments. I love to receive comments. :) Everyone take care and enjoy the year of 2009 and may it be a prosperous one for you.:) ~Salina
10-19-08~~~~~~I have some nice handmade things for sale in my Lov.li shop(link up above). Please pay it a visit when you get the chance. I would be delighted if you left me a message or two. Happy swapping everyone! Salina~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Update:10-14-08 I sent off the last swap that I'll be doing on here for awhile today. I'll still be back from time to time to rate people who still have things to send to me. I don't know when I'll be back but it won't be too long. Maybe I'll start up again in January of 2009. Take care all and thanks for swappin' with me! ~Salina
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 10-08-08 Update: Hello everyone. Well it sure has been fun swappin' with you all. I have two swaps to finish up this month and then I have decided to take a break from swapping for awhile. I've got other things I need to focus on more right now. I will be back though. Feel free to leave me a message still anytime.:) ~Salina ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hello. I have been married for 13 years to a very hard working man and am a mother to four wonderful children who are 3, 4, 11 and 13 years of age. I am a stay at home mom and and enjoy my job as a homemaker.
I like to do a little bit of almost everything when it comes to crafts. I crochet, crosstitch, embroider, sew, do paper crafts like cards, collages, and a bit of altered art. I am alway open to learn new things too.
I play a little on the piano and the guitar. Would love to take classes one day to get better but don't know when that day will come.:)Another instument I would like to try out would be the mandolin. I love bluegrass!
I listen to alot of top 40, lots of stuff from the 80's on up till now. I love classical, bluegrass, celtic, folk, alternative, pretty much most anything except heavy metal, rap, and just plain weird stuff. :)
I am a big fan of most things made organically as well and love to reuse materials that are still usable.
My favorite colors are greens, blues, lavendars, browns and pinks(not a fan of hot pink though). Greys are cool too as well as a touch or red here and there. Illustrations inked with sepia and brown tones are so awesome.
Some of my favorite things are books, epecially vintage/antique books(childrens books for the illustrations)and handmade books. I love ribbons and crocheted lace, vintage and non-vintage material,sewing supplies and of course paper! Paper makes me so happy. :)I love the look the feel and the versatility of it. Another favorite of mine is things found in nature. If you have pretty little rocks, pinecones, driftwood, even fine sand from an ocean beach, shells, lichen, moss, just anything from nature that is nice to look at I would be very happy to receive it. I love to make things with it. I would love to receive something that was made from mostly things from nature.:)
Anne of Green Gables, Little Women, Jane Eyre, Little House on the Prairie, most Jane Austin books, books by Jan Kirkpatrick(the trilogy All Together in One Place, What Once We Loved, No Eye Can See-these are so good!)
