A graphic designer by trade, I am a serial crafter, and like to try just about anything. I haven't really gotten into the whole sewing/knitting/fiber arts area, However, I would like to try creating a stitched journal. I do like paper crafts, assemblage, collage, jewelry-making, etc. I am trying to spend more time with my photography, both digital and analog.

I strive to go beyond the swap requirements, and only send items that I would be thrilled to receive myself. For me, it's quality over quantity. I'm really appreciative of other swappers that have obviously put thought, time, and effort into their swap packages.
I always send out my swaps. If you did not receive anything from me, please let me know. I want you to be happy swapping with me. ;-)
