I've decided to limit what I do on this site. I'm not trying to start any drama even though it seems like it. Actually in my stupid way I'm trying to run from it. So with a little coaxing from someone on here that is a really great person I've decided to stay. I'm only going to be running the Alphabet dotee swap monthly and then a few swaps that I make. Maybe a couple of group swaps to stay active. People can be pretty mean when they want to be. I don't think that something fun like this should be full of drama but it is :( so with that said I'm off to make a list of the swaps I"d like to make, get permissions, etc.
For those that I've forgotten to rate. Please pm me so that I can make it right. I got a bit mixed up for a bit there.
One of my New Years Resolutions is to start to blog, and post pictures more. Also to revamp my swap profile :) So there will be changes frequently to this page, my blog, and to my flickr photos
So about me...Let's see my name is Tracie Johnson and I'm a 31 yo mom to a 6 yo daughter and a wife of 11 years.
I live in rural Pennsylvania right next to Lake Erie. How fun is that?
I'm a bit of a talker and love to talk and talk and talk.
I love to knit, counted cross stitch, some basic sewing, crochet, some scrap booking, some bead work. Making dotee dolls, and postcards thanks to swap-bot ;).
My ultimate favorite color is blue. Any shade of blue. Right now I'm in an orange phase. I love orange so that's a close second to blue.
I really love how blue and white go together. To me it's sorta like that marbled glass with the cobalt blue and white.
The only color I don't like a whole lot is pink.
A goal of mine is to eventually have a quilt or an afghan with a yellow, green, and blue colorway.
SOME OTHER THINGS
I love alpacas. They are totally cute to me. I love Fall and with that comes Halloween. It's my favorite holiday and season of the year. I love coffee, tea, and hot chocolate. Must be the caffeine that makes me talk too much LOL!
I've been involved on other websites with Round Robins. Most were successful and I know how fun this swapping can be. I also know all the ins and outs of the mail system as far as these things go and how it's not fun to not get your item in the mail. When I send things out I have a tendency to send things out a day or two early so that it will get there on time. I have no problem being a part of International swaps. After all it makes me feel a bit like I'm traveling.
I decided to join swap-bot to meet new friends and have some fun while on here.
If you would like to do a private swap let me know. I'm more than happy to do so. :)
I love to swap! It's a great time to bond with my daughter while she helps pick out colors, beads, and other things for the various swaps that I pick out. Everything that is handmade is handmade by not only me but my daughter as well. If something doesn't seem quite right that might be the part that she did. Everything we make is from the heart and if you can see that shine through please feel free to give a heart.
I don't rate on what extras you send. As my daughter and I both make things from the heart, I would hope that you would too. If I see that you did then I will give you a heart simply for doing a great job on the actual swap item (not to say I won't give hearts for the extras that are themed with that item).
If you send something for my daughter I will give you a heart just for making her day. She loves mail and loves seeing the swaps momma gets. Her likes and dislikes are in the if you send extras just below .
