Until further notice, I have a temporary Canadian address for all outgoing/incoming swaps, so my swapping is a bit limited at this time (sadly!).
A note on rating ... All of my incoming mail goes to a mailbox that I can't access after hours. I try to get there at least twice a week and rate as soon as I go through my mail. Thank you for understanding!
If you have not received my swap after a reasonable amount of time (what is that anyways, with covid?!) please let me know prior to rating a 1. I've been here more than 12 years, and I don't flake. I'm more than happy to resend if something's gone wrong and will always extend the same courtesy.
Below are some things about me, things I love, things not so much. This is not a "you must send these things" list. It's to help with any profile related swaps, and to get to know a bit about me. I appreciate everything that is sent to me.
Hard to believe I've been here more than 12 years! Time flies :) I love swapping here, and most of my experience here has been amazing and wonderful. I've had the pleasure and joy of meeting a lot of great people from around the world, that I would have otherwise never known.
I design and create metalwork jewelry, and it's my passion and full time job. I am lucky enough to spend my days in my studio, creating pretty things to send to lovely people around the world.
In my spare time, I love to do crafts of all kinds (see below), spend time with my hubby and cats (we have 3 hoodlums!) and frequent thrift shops and vintage and antiques markets. I could spend hours upon hours (days? lol) sifting through old treasures.
I love creating so many different things, and can't think of much I have not tried yet.
My current passions are jewelry making, paper crafts, scrapbooking, stamping, painting, mixed media art and collage, art journals, junk journals, ATC's, smash books, stitching, altered art, and digital art.
I have started to get back to some old crafts I haven't done in years ... crochet, sewing, cross stitch, embroidery and macrame (it's actually cool again lol).
I appreciate and welcome everything I receive. The following are just not really my personal taste:
Chicago PD, Criminal Minds, FBI, Cold Case, Friends, The Mentalist, Law & Order, Castle, Bones, Elementary, Sherlock, House (MD), The Closer, True Detective, Dexter, Cardinal, Person of Interest, Bosch, crafting shows, cooking shows, serial binge watcher of Investigation Discovery channel.
I love music and can't get through a day without it! Mostly an alternative/grunge gal, but I'm all over the map really! Some faves:
Red Hot Chili Peppers, Type O Negative, The White Stripes, Brad Sucks, Depeche Mode, The Cure, Radiohead, Garbage, Thirteen Senses, Muse, The Verve, The Cult, Linkin Park, The Black Keys, Pearl Jam, Sisters of Mercy, Oasis, The Offspring, Stone Temple Pilots, Incubus, Third Eye Blind, Broken Bells, Foo Fighters, AC/DC, HIM, The 69 Eyes, AFI, Neverending White Lights, etc
Books I most enjoy are mysteries and crime dramas. Some of my favourites being from James Patterson (love the Alex Cross ones!). I also love Stephen King, Stieg Larsson, Kathy Reichs (Bones), Tess Gerritsen (Rizzoli and Isles)
I also LOVE craft books and art magazines. Would cherish anything from Stampington/Somerset (even previously loved)
My fave movies are rom coms, comedy, some action movies, and thrillers. Love any and all James Bond movies!
I must admit I am in love with Robert Downey Jr. I know we are meant to be together, and as soon as he realizes this, it will all be good! ;o
