2012-04-26 Just wanted to thank all my good friends on SB for their overwheling support. It's been appreciated immensely. I also wanted to let my partners know I will be out of the country to bring my grandmother's remains home to the Philippines from May 23rd to June 25th. I will be sending ALL my swaps well before I leave and of course there won't be any activity from me on here until way after I return home. I know I won't be able to stay away too long. I love you guys and the stuff ya create!
Thank you for your kindness, patience and understanding.
2012-04-19 My G-Ma passed away today so I won't be here for a while. Miss @maciemcgowan your zine is done but got left behind on my desk. I will send it out immediately after I arrive home.
Thank you for your patience.
2012-04-09 Say hello to my RL younger sis @o0o0hblah She's incredibly talented and craftier than I could ever hope to be.
ATTENTION SWAP PARTNERS: Please do not write swap or swapbot or the name of the swap or anything at all web-related, on the outside of your envelope or parcel to me. Thank you for your kindness and discretion.
Hello! My name is Anna and I live in California, United States. Â I am a single mother to a very adorable little boy and a returning college student. Â I work at a super popular cafe and enjoy interacting with people.Â
Its been over 10 years since I've done anything artistic/creative for fun but I have participated in simpler swpas in the past on livejournal.com and other fan sites. I'm a novice scrapbooker and have unfortunately forgotten how to knit but I have a passion for art and it's different mediums. I am hungry to learn and a quick study. Â I've been on pinterest and it's like coming home to the motherland! Haha.
As a child I've been a faithful pen pal until my pen pals out grew snail mail. I've also been collecting stationaries, post cards, letters, and notes since then too. For a whole year I was obsessed with book binding. I gave out a whole bunch of hand stitched books but after much tears and blood loss, i decided to leave it to the professionals, lol, but being on here has reawaken that fire. In general, I love connecting with people and spreading love and pretty, pretty things. ^-^Â
Completely, over-the-moon, obsessed with altered and filled matchboxes!!!! I needs to own and make them!
Matchboxes, instabooks, bookbinding and zines! Oh, swap-bot, how you've ruined me forever...lol. ^.^
Paper Crafting forever!!
I rate based on Swap-Bot rules. (Swap meets requirements - 5, swap is late with NO communication OR does not meet requirements - 3, nothing received - 1)
Extras are nice but I give hearts based on effort and originality.
I do my best to always send on time. Please PM me if you do not received my swap about 3 weeks after the deadline and I'll be happy to resend.
If you're going to be late on sending your swap, just contact me. I know how life can get crazy sometimes.
Red, yellow, orange, green and royal purple.
Recently I've been craving corals, greys, soft greens, and butter cream colors.
I love all types of music! From gangsta rap to soothing meditation music and in between. Â I'm a huge fan of Eminem, No Doubt, Gwen Stefani, Bob Marley, Fleetwood Mac, Journey, Dr. Dre, Joan Jett covers, old Madonna, Aaliyah, Maroon 5, Lykke Li, and Queen- to name some.
I'm a voracious reader! mI've recently had to switch to ebooks as I've no more room yfor another bookcase. Â I am a diehard fan of Kim Harrison's Rachel Morgan series, Patricia Brigg's Mercy Thompson series and Karen Chance's Cassandra Palmer series. Â I used to read a lot of Laurell K. Hamilton but she got too porny for me. I also used to read Charlaine Harris too but got too impatient waiting for installments. Â I thoroughly enjoyed her Lily Bard "Shakespeare" series as well as her Harper Conelly "Grave" series.
I will happily rewatch Amelie, the Sandlot, Equilibrium, 28 Days Later, Shawshank Redemption, Moulin Rouge, The Road, Gladiator, Immortal Beloved, Matrix Series, Serenity, Dawn of the Dead, Little Rascals, and Y Tu Mama Tambien.
Whedon forever!!! Buffy, Angel, Firefly, and Dollhouse. Â Dark Angel, Supernatural, Dexter, Walking Dead, and Two Broke Girls.
Chocolate, tea, chocolate, gummy candies, (OMG! Chocolate covered gummi bears are the best things since ever!) chocolate, all favors of Japanes Pocky, coffee, chocolate, water, and more chocolate. Â I've never tried chocolate pomegranate seeds and I'm sorta dying to. ^-^
Searching to do private UK trade for some goody good stuff gummy/sour snacks!!!
If you're stuck and still don't have an idea what to send, here are some things I can't get easily in my area, or things I've never seen in RL and would like one, or things I can not make myself yet.Â
Please, please, please don't read this as a gimme list or feel you HAVE to send these to make my day. I'm sure you, crafting genius you, will have a sense of me already and just know I'll love your work!
