Hi, I'm Susie from San Francisco. I was born and raised in the Big Apple, NYC. I consider myself to be a city girl. I used to work in the human services field, now I am a happy housewife with a baby on the way. I also enjoy traveling.
I like cute stuff, especially Japanese stuff. I like to buy cute stationery stuff that I can actually use--notepads, post-it notes, packing/decor/washi tapes, etc. I love to make things to give away. My dream is to set up my own arts and crafts business one day when the time is right.
I tend to reuse and recycle stuff. I would also like to see everyone else do the same, it makes sense to help the environment as much as possible!
I usually rate as soon as I receive the swaps. If it appears that I have forgotten to rate yours, please send a friendly reminder. I do hope to get a rating from you soon if we do a swap. I never want to flake, if I know that I will be late in sending out any swap to you, I will make sure to communicate to you about it. I also would love to do a private swap with you if we have similar interests-just PM me!
I'm into most kinds of crafts, but especially into rubber stamping, beading, scrapbooking, and paper arts. I am still learning to use my sewing machine. I love to buy cool fabrics to try to make some stuff.
These are the things that I really like:
favorite colors are brown, red, fuchsia, granny apple green, aqua blue (turquoise), aqua blue/red combo & white or cream/red combo
scrapbook establishments (ribbons, buttons, brads, eyelets, fiber, vintage ephemera, etc)
vintage postage stamps
designs of cute fruits/cupcake/sweets/desserts
woodland stuff such as mushrooms, fairies, gnomes, owls, deer, squirrel, birds, hedgehogs, etc
teacup, teapots, tea-time designs
little red riding hood, alice in wonderland, fairy tales (not disney)
fat quarters of cotton fabric of stuff, especially Japanese fabrics
I am not crazy about receiving these stuff:
cosmetic stuff (lip balm, perfume, etc)
Thanks very much!
