I received a lovely package from Etsy containing a Halloween-themed keychain. It did not contain any type of note about who it was from. Please let me know if this was you who sent it!

10/31/17 I am going to be sending out some wishes from October wishlists from the different groups I am in. I apologize for the tardiness, but things were a little crazy.

10/23/17 I haven't been able to post sooner but we had a death in our family and I may be delayed on a swap or two by a couple days. I have most things put together, but had a small delay preparing everything to ship with this unexpected event. I've messaged all my swap partners. This also goes for any wishes that I have to send out for the groups I am in. I promise I have October wishes to send, I just have to get them in the mail. I appreciate everyone's patience.

Hi, my name is Christina

I'm 37 years old. My birthday is August 25th. I am married to the love of my life Steve. We have been married since January 20, 2001. We've been together over 20 years. Our daughter Daliana was born July 5, 2008.

We live with our kitty Abby in a city called Clermont, FL which is near Orlando. On 2/14/17 we lost our other cat and first furbaby Augie :(

Being a mom is one of the most exciting things that's ever happened to me. I look at my daughter every day and count my blessings for having her in my life.

I work at Walt Disney World here in Florida. It's a lot of fun getting to work where so many of my friends vacation. If you have any questions about Disney or need any tips or tricks, let me know!

I think green and I do like to reuse packaging, so please don't be surprised if you see an envelope or box that looks used.

I'm also pretty crafty and create my own envelopes at times out of various things (magazines, folders, etc).

This helps keep more junk out of landfills.

My favorite crafts are inchies, mini pocket letters, matchboxes, ATCs, handmade postcards, mail art, photo collages, making my own notecards, mini zines, sticker crafts, painting, making pet rocks, beading, weaving with loom kits, and plastic canvas art. I dabble a little bit in sewing, but I'm not really that good at it.

I really want to learn to crochet. I kind of sort of can do a single stitch basic crochet, but I want to be able to make something more than just a coaster or square towel lol.

I just made my first dotee doll for a sender's choice swap and it was SO much fun! I think I found a new fun crafty adventure!

I an an avid photographer (Nikon D3200) and spend most of my time taking photos in and around Walt Disney World. My specialty is fireworks.

I would love to get my hands on any items to help my crafty endeavors.

I love Pinterest and you can check out my crazy fun boards HERE

If for some reason you do not receive a swap or a tag from me, PLEASE send me a message and let me know! I know that things get lost in the mail and I send all of my swaps & tags out on time.
