( We have since moved to PA) I Blogged for a few years, I collect Batman Comics ( since I was 11) I love Indie Rock, and I'm slightly obsessed with old movies and the 1950's and the tragedy of Titanic. I am also ridiculously obsessed with Alice in wonderland.

Favorite Crafts

I Pledge to rate please remember to rate me too. I make and swap items I would want to receive so I hope to have a good experience and receive the same from my swap partners. Please don't take my handmade, thoughtful swap and not return the favor.

If you do not receive your swap from me please message me before rating! I can promise you I can make it up or find out what happened with shipping or something. I am NOT a flaker!!!!

I try my best to rate swaps the same day I get them, and I would appreciate you doing the same for me. I will PM all partners who haven't rated to make sure you don't forget to rate me. Not rating is rude and inconsiderate of my time and effort.

When you send me a swap, please make sure to list your user name and the name of the swap on your envelope and/or on a card inside the package so I will be able to rate the correct person.

I look forward to swapping with you all!!
