About Me

I am a disney lover living the dream in rainy Seattle. I work way too much so for me, crafting is a bit of an escape and a way to destress!

I've been away from Swapbot for almost 3 years. I got really burned out and I am horribly embarassed to say that I flaked on a swap. I've reached out to that person, but it looks like they are no longer around. I'm trying to make restitution however I can by stalking the angel threads hoping to pay my mistake forward however I can.

Favorite Crafts

My crafts of choice that I do are cross stitch, paint by numbers, and rubber stamp carving. I'm also getting big into button crafts. I'm starting to get back into perler art.

I see so many awesome crafts out there and I want to learn how to make them. I want to start working with felt next! I also would love to learn how to crochet. I would love to learn how to actually paint- one of these days maybe!

Favorite Books

Yes, I am one of those adults that absolutely love YA books. I love contemporary YA (think Eleanor and Park, TFIOS, Anna and the French Kiss) and will mostly read anything except high fantasy. I also really love dystopians like Divergent, the Matched trilogy, and the Hunger Games.

I'm a big Harry Potter fan (my favorite character is Ron Weasley). I also loved most of the books in Patricia Cornwell's Scarpetta series. I am also a big fan of Twilight. (Love me some Charlie Swan) Most of the crafts I make in my spare time is Harry Potter or Disney related.

Things I love

♥I love Disneyland! It's the only thing I miss about living in Southern California. I love Minnie Mouse and anything red with white polka dots. It's probably easier for me to list characters I don't like- I'm not a huge Pixar fan and can't stand Cars. I love the princesses, mickey and minnie, and I do like Merida.

♥Stationary- I love finding pen pals and doing journals with cute stationary pieces.

♥Tea! I'm not a fan of coffee, but I do really love tea. Especially spicy cinnamon varieties.

♥Hair accessories- I have curly hair and love to do neat things with my hair- pinning curls up, pulling my bangs back. I love flowers, felt hair pins, etc. Just not hair ties- I have enough of those to last me a lifetime :)

♥Vintage- I love neat vintage or vintage-esque items. I love collecting brooches!

♥Polka Dots

♥Hello Kitty and kawaii items are too cute not to love

♥Bunnies, foxes and hedgehogs

♥Red Riding Hood and Wolves

♥Cross stitch patterns and magazines! I can never have enough of these!

Things I don't love

♥Food- I am on a very, very strict diet and I get so many goodies here on swapbot that it is so very hard to not eat them! The only way I can completely resist something is to not bring it into the house. Thank you so very much for understanding!

♥For recipe swaps- I cannot have sugar or white flour, I am absolutely open to anything else!

Comment: Unfortunately, I have yet to receive this swap and you have not logged in since the day after I assigned partners. I sent you a message on 9/17, to which I did not receive a reply. I will be happy to re-rate to a 3 if you send. I hope that you are okay.

Hi! I hope you safely received and enjoyed my "Radical Self-Love Self-Portraits" swap. :) Please rate when you can?

Saristotle on Sep 18, 2014:

I have to remove you from Eff Your Beauty Standards for non-rating and flaking. I really hope you followed through on the Body Positive Etsy swap because I personally PM'd you prior to assigning partners and you confirmed that you wanted to participate. Please respond to PMs. I hope things are okay.

Hi, there! I came across your Alice group today and I think it's a wonderful idea! I'm rather new to swap-bot, but I hope you'll consider letting me join, as I'm a huge Alice fan and an avid tea-party hostess. :) The swaps you've got going on look like a lot of fun! I sent the same message to the group's other partner, but it looks like she hasn't been around for a while. Hope to join soon! :) xo, Kitty

Jester777 on Nov 27, 2010:

Hello! I noticed you're in my Alice's Stash: Stationary, Stickers and more! Swap and today was the deadline and you haven't clicked "sent". Just a friendly reminder in case! If you're late, please notify your partner! :D

xSugar on Nov 21, 2010:

I have so many ideas, that I'm not really sure which one I'd like the best. I'll have to get back to you, haha! Pretty much, I was thinking about something that could function like an envelope seal or logo type thing.
