About Me

** I am returning to Swap-Bot after a long absence. I have learned (and would warn others) that you can get carried away with all the options here. So, I'll be limiting myself to swaps I can afford and mail on time. I hope that people will balance all the positive responses against the few unsent. And, if I owe you something - please let me know so that I can make amends. Thanks!

I'm 46 years old and single, mom to 2 girls (16 & 19), and 3 cats.

I enjoy crafts - knitting, crocheting, ATCs and other Altered Arts

I'm not a girly girl - the only makeup I do is lipgloss/lipstick and sometimes nail polish, I have short hair, and prefer jeans and a top to dressing up. I do however, use body sprays and lotions. And, I love the handmade bracelets and pins.

I currently work in a call center and enjoy my work and the people I work with.

My favorite colors are purple, earthtones (especially burnt sienna or dark mustard), aqua/turquoise/teal, and being an Aries red surrounds me. So any of those colors will most likely put a smile on my face :)

I also have an extensive postcard collection - around 1100 (started when I was 12), so I always welcome new postcards for the collection.

I love to write (you know like by hand! - anyone still remember that? - lol). Therefore, I enjoy receiving interesting pens.

My decorating style is "Early American Lawnsale" meets "Packrat Eclectic" LOL!

If considering scents - I like lilac, citrus, spice/cinnamon, and would prefer not to have cherry, blueberry, or vanilla.

Favorite flavors include: strawberry & chocolate, coffee, caramel, cinnamon, and orange. Again, cherry, blueberry, and vanilla (except in teas)- not a fan.

I've also become a tea fan since joining swap-bot. OMG - I'm my Mother! lol

Love to get handmade stuff! It's great to see everyone's creativity! I especially like hand-painted items, hamdmade magnets & pins, inspirational or amusing quotes, cats, and lemurs!

Oh, and I would be really impressed if someone sent an item with a Lemur on it!! I absolutely love them. This would definitely warrant a heart, and a laugh if you picture me prancing around the house giggling with glee - no seriously!

Favorite Music

rock and country, but I'm open to listening to just about anything. I also love music from the Andes.

Favorite Movies

not a movie fan - it may be on, but I'm too busy crafting to pay much attention :)

Favorite Television

I don't have TV, watch at my daughter's once a week (news, Today show, Criminal Minds, and Food Network.

Favorite Crafts

depends on the day :) - right now I've got like a hundred different ideas in several mediums, so I've been trying out new things.

I especially like the Altered crafts because it's another excuse to shop at Thrift Stores, Yard Sales, etc. Consequently, I have TONS of old book and magazine pages to use (and/or swap), puzzle pieces, wool from sweaters, etc.

Lately, I've been knitting and crocheting mostly.

Comment: Thank you so much, your pc finally arrived, thanks to our postal strike! So lovely, I have been to Maine once, Kittery, went to the outlet mall and had one of the most beautiful meals of my life, my sweetie even took a picture of me eating it, a "casserole" of seafood. OMG, my mouth is drooling thinking of it! LOL Thanks for bringing back some awesome memories. Julie

The parcel I sent for the All Crafters Craft Swap has been returned to me with a yellow "return to sender sticker" although I copied and pasted your address. What do you want me to do now?

SharinmyStitches on Jun 3, 2011:

Hi, I'm doing the Hang it on the Christmas tree swap. I really debated whether to ban you from the swap. I looked at your ratings and it has been awhile since you received a 1. But there is still the issue of making up those swaps. Please consider doing that. Click on that person's name and send them a private message to get their address and make amends. You'll feel better and no one will recommend that you be banned. You're doing great! Keep it up! :)

kayler00 on Jun 3, 2011:

You should make up your old swaps before you join new ones..

TerryF on Jun 2, 2011:

Are you going to make up all of those flaked swaps?
