April '13 Wedding was awesome, thanks to everyone who stepped up to help! We are struggling with my autistic 6 yo right now and less so with his 12 yo brother with ADD (his teacher is a 'b' bad word) and a baby is always lots of work so if you usually rate based on extras, notes or mail art please know I am doing all I can to stay sane, run my groups and get my swaps out on time or relatively so and show some modicum of creativity. So if the art is good, please be kind and especially consider giving me a heart if I hosted the swap you are rating for. You have no idea how much work it is to run my groups pretty much single-handedly! Plus my mom and I aren't speaking now when I need her most so its really tough for me right now. Any small gesture would be appreciated so much. Even an email!

Jan 13 I'm doing 260 wedding favours, flower girl jewelry and 40 table numbers for my sister's wedding March 9 so I'm going to be scaling back the next couple months. So please excuse me if my groups are quiet. I hope my wrists can handle all the die cutting I have to do!
Dec 12 My baby Teddy is a year old already! Where on earth did the time go! He is toddling everywhere, so much younger than his brothers, but still no teeth. My boobies are happy! Such a cute little smile! We recently found out that my 5 yo has high functioning Autism AKA Asperger's or ASDHF. So we are embarking on a roller coaster ride of emotions and therapies. Wish us the best. So our family consists of a dad with depression, a mom with lupus and fibromyalgia and more, an 11 yo with ADD, a 5 yo with autism and a baby who is a lot of work as with any baby and an unknown quantity so far and we pray is healthy in every way. Yeesh. Every day is exhausting, usually before I get out of bed! But I try and remember to smile and that I love them. 12/24/12
I am thrilled to announce the birth of Theodore Alexander Quinn Ednie, December 18 1:32 am weighing 7 lbs 8 oz.
Hi, my name is Rebecca Ednie and I am a SAHM of two little boys, Jameson (Feb 2001), Spencer (May 2007) and Theodore (Dec 2011). Married to Tim (1973), a paramedic with Toronto Emergency Medical Services.
Swap-Bot Responsibilities Primary Founder: Matchbox and More, Spoiled Swappers Officer: Somerset Style, Gentle Hugs, Rubber Stamping
I used to work as an RN (still licensed) but I am disabled with lupus so I can't practice anymore. I live in a small town but I am close to a much larger one and only 40 minutes drive from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. We have a very fat brown and white tabby cat, Jesse! My home is your basic suburban end townhouse on a quiet street. We live right next to a park for the kids and the school is great! I love living in such a small town yet so close to a larger town and a major city. If you drive 5 minutes (or less!) in any direction, you find horse farms and corn fields.
Jameson loves Metroid, Mario, Kirby and Sonic, Mega Man (anime), soccer, toys that fly, art especially drawing, Diary of a Wimpy Kid especially the Do-It-Yourself version, animals especially cats and dogs. He'd die and go to heaven if you sent him a pack of gum! He'd love links to any how-to-draw sites or any how-to-draw books. Or any art books that teach shading and colouring. He enjoys playing outside, the beach, bike riding and skateboarding. He likes watching Phineas and Ferb and most kid/family movies like Disney, Muppet and Pixar movies. He'd like to trade ATCs, letters or drawings with other kids his age so PM me or email rebeccacell at gmail dot com so we can set up something privately. He would love any chapter books or novels that are age appropriate so if you have any that are going to donation anyway, I'd be happy to trade for them. If they are a bit too advanced we can save them. We have quite a few girl ones from when I was young so if you have a girl, we could trade those.
Spencer loves foam die cut shapes especially the ones with sticker backs and stickers so if you'd like to throw a few in a package you are sending, he'd be thrilled. He also loves Cars, G-Force, Mega Mind, Lilo and Stitch, Toy Story, Wall-E, He likes puzzles, crafts like cutting and pasting and some drawing. He's behind in writing and drawing so anything related that might motivate him is a huge plus and will get you hearts! He loves numbers and related games too.
Teddy is too little to appreciate anything sent for him but I would! Anything teddy bear themed of course, soothers &/or clips in pastel colours 9 months and up, anything vintage baby especially if it works well as a photography prop as I am an aspiring newborn/baby photographer. I prefer soft colours/styles for anything under size 2 because I think babies should look like babies, not like small men. Anything handmade is awesome. I love those hand knitted or crocheted hats with animal ears on them. Crazy about Heirloom clothing girl or boy, damaged or stained, any size as I can use it as a photography prop.

I am an aspiring newborn/baby photographer so I'd love any props: cute hats, flowered head bands, cute skirts/tutus, vintage clothes,blankets or quilts even if stained (clean) or damaged as that adds character.

Music: Country all the way! Even though I've never worn western wear! (I used to ride but English style.)
