Swapping friends, I sincerely apologize for my absence and lack of luster and dedication to my swaps. I will mail out Friday. I have explained the delay to each of you. If you have gotten an angel for my swap, PLEASE email me at [email protected] so that I can send the angels themselves something since they were so kind.
I have decided to leave swap-bot. Friday all my swaps will be current, but I feel that it is only fair that until I can dedicate completely to the swap that I will take a step away. I have so enjoyed meeting and making things with all of you. And hopefully I will return at a later date.
Thank you for your time and understanding. Again, I am truly sorry :(
My name is Christine. I am married to a super cool guy. His name is Chris (hence the csquared). He is an avid hunter and fisherman. He loves the outdoors, Steelers (me too!!) and coffee (yuck). We have been married for almost 3 years and have the sweetest little girl. Her name is Madison. She just turned 2 and she is amazing. She loves Elmo, reading and orange seems to be her favorite color :) As for me, well I teach kindergarten. I absolutely love my job (even when I am complaining about it). My favorite color is blue, but all colors are lovely (except pink...I'm not really a fan). I love scrapbooking, sewing, quilting (more so the tops than the handquilting...although I had a wonderful teacher and I am capable of doing it, I'm just lazy), getting super lost on the internet, you know you start at one cool idea and it leads to another one and soon it's bedtime!!!
I would like to add that I am having a lot of fun doing the swaps. I have learned quite a bit in such a short period of time. If you are supose to get a swap from me...I promise it will get to you! I have mailed the same swap three times to make sure my partner gets it!!! If life happens and gets in the way, I will email you because I honor the commitment that I signed up for. If for some reason you haven't received something from me, PLEASE PLEASE PM me (I have already learned to save my receipts from the post office)...and I will do the same for you. Happy Swapping Friends :)
I love to sew, quilt, scrapbook and do random altering projects.
Don't laugh....I love children's books. And Robert Fulgrum...hilarious
Pretty Woman (still my favorite), Good Will Hunting, all the disney movies :), The Sound of Music, Shawshank Redemption
Dexter and Criminal Minds are my current faves, will always love Sex in the City and Friends. But I really don't watch much TV.

I think any unique, handmade item from you would be awesome!

thin double sided tape (to make those cute envies)
Stamps are cool for my cardmaking
Madison LOVES Elmo and to "color pictures" (drawing on any paper near where mommy is working) . So if you'd like to send stuff for her that would be great too.
living room is green and tan, with white frames on the walls
kitchen, I am currently in the middle of adding apples as the decor...just made vinyl wording and I love it!!!
Madison's new biggie girl room will be whimsy woodland creature themed (have bedding, need to find time to paint...uggg)
