I am a reader, mother, photography junky, and craft geek. I like long walks in dusty fields, A&W Cream Soda, Jelly Belly jelly beans, and cotton candy. I love to read, watch movies, and listen to music in between crafting and chasing my three little boys with my camera. I am not a picky person at all (I love to be surprised) and I have many, varied interests.
I live out in the middle of nowhere, and though I almost always send within a few days of partners being assigned, sometimes it takes a while for mail to find it's way to where it needs to go. Same goes for when you've sent something to me and it seems to be taking longer than necessary for me to get it. I guess that's just life out here in the plains. Please, please PM me before rating if you have not received anything from me. I'm more than happy to resend.
I try to rate right away, but there are times when I am without computer access for a day or two. Have no fear, I rate in all of my swaps.
I've tried to add lots of likes and wishlists, not as a "get me this" thing, but more so you get an idea of my tastes. Like I said above, I have many, varied tastes. So much so that it really isn't even worth me trying to list any dislikes.
Crochet - I'm most proficient in crochet, it is pretty much my main craft. But I love trying at those I'm not that good at.
Scrapbooking - Digital and paper.
Dyeing - Kool-Aid, Jaquard Dyes, Wilton Icing colors, etc.
Sewing - Re-learning. It's been a while, but I'm working on some headbands, pillows, etc. and saving up scraps for a scrap quilt.
Cross Stitch/Embroidery - Started cross-stitching years ago. It's an addiction.
Polymer Clay -

Cute hairbands/hairclips. I recently cut off 10 inches of hair to donate, and am trying to get used to short hair again. The clips and hairbands come in handy to keep it out of my face.
