I'm a 50-mumble woman living on my own for the first time since my early 20s. Quite an experience. I have a balance disability and cannot work, so spend a lot of time knitting, reading, on my computer or doing various other crafts. I have two kitties, Clementine and Ezekiel who are the loves of my life, oh, and my name is Andrea, called Ande by my friends, which I consider you, now that you're reading my profile ;)
I had to leave Swap-Bot abruptly in 2012 and did not fulfill my last four swaps. I am attempting to contact the recipients I should have sent to in hopes of making some small amends for flaking. I hope to get back into swapping, if the Swap-Bot gods smile on me.
Knitting, pottery, embroidery/crewel, quilting, sewing, writing, crochet (when I have to)
60s-80s mostly. Rock and singer/songwriters
Buttons, yarn, trims/embellishments, embroidery patterns/floss, yarn, fabric, yarn (you get the idea)
Stuff for papercrafts - don't do much of them, but might if I had stuff. I have some rubber stamps, but don't know what to do with them....
Zines. Would love some zines.
Colors: Earthtones and blue.
Risque/sexually themed items, "country" decor, Precious Moments or any other themed tchotchkes. Witches, vampires, ghouls and ghosts. Scented stickers/notepaper/letters.
Colors: Red, pink, white and any 'neon' color
Cozy mysteries, Sherri Tepper, Joseph C. Lincoln books
All time - Hill St. Blues, Star Trek Next Generation, Barney Miller
Current - CSI, Bones, Criminal Minds
My household is neither pet- or smoke-free and since swap organizers have no control over who is assigned to who in swaps, I apologize if my swap smells a bit smoky or has a stray hair from my beloved kitties. I will wash any washable items prior to sending, and any purchased items will be immediately put into a ziplock to minimize exposure to smoke or pet hair.
Antiques, buttons (including antique buttons), paperweights, stamps, watercolor paintings (love, love watercolors)
Drinkable likes - chamomile tea, hot chocolate, flavored coffees
Edible likes - Chocolate (real stuff, not Palmer or other 'discount' chocolate flavored chocolate), nuts, crackers, old-fashioned candies
Drinkable dislikes - anything alcoholic, green tea, anything minty.
Edible dislikes - anchovies, marzipan, any snacks from the dollar stores that aren't major brands.
