I ALWAYS SEND OUT MY SWAPS. If it is an e-mail swap and you don't get anything, check your bulk folder, and if it is not there, then e-mail or contact me and I will re-send it.
RATING: I will be out of town in July, so I will be unable to rate you for right now (unless it is an e-mail swap.) When I get home, I will go through my huge pile of mail and rate everyone! Thanks for being understanding!
I'm a teacher, an artist and a writer. I make stuff, lots of stuff, particularly collage, mixed media, books, and boxes. My blog is http://sparklebluefaery.blogspot.com.
I teach Kindergarten at a small private school.
My other hobbies besides art include hiking, yoga, and reading. I like to cook, generally only if it is quick. I don't eat any red meat, so if you get me for a recipe swap I would really appreciate recipes without cow or pig. Birds and fish are fine though. Eventually one day I will go full out vegetarian.
My favorite color is blue (obviously), however I also like green, purple, and silver. I love essential oils and anything scented with jasmine or lavender. I have two neurotic cats whom I love very much. They like handmade cat toys, trash that can be used as a cat toy(which I have way too much of, so if I'm in a kitty swap, please don't send any crumbled paper balls, we're quite stocked on those), and chicken flavored kitty treats.
I always send out my swaps, so if you don't get anything, contact me.
I particularly like folk music, french music, rock music, reggae, some old school hip hop, and whimsical music. My favorite artists: Ani DiFranco (I love her), Tool, A Perfect Circle, Ditty Bops, Patty Griffin, Tori Amos. In short, anything but country and R&B, the only genres I dislike (but I'm sure there are songs in those genres I do like).
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Pan's Labyrinth. Amelie. Gattica. Lots of French movies. Any distopian thriller. Movies that have a French language audio option.
Anais Nin Journals, anything by Lynne Perrala or Gwen Deihn (colorful art journal books), Sabrina Ward Harrison.
I also like books with lesson plans and activities I can do with my class. My big thing right now is shoe box learning centers.
