About Me

5/29/19--I have discovered a new favorite! Diamond Painting!! So much fun. Just a word of caution, it can be addicting!

A Word about Swapping

A little bit about me and Swaps. I will never flake! I find it pointless to join a swap if I do not plan to fully commit and follow through.

If I know I will be late, I will always message you ahead of time. That being said, if you do not receive a swap from me, or feel that I did not meet the swap requirements, please message me before you rate. I will always resend if it is necessary.

Unfortunately, not everyone thinks this way. I have had swappers never send anything or never rate. It is a big disappointment and a mean thing to do. I do not wish that on anyone here in Swap-Bot.

Personal information

I am a mother of 2, born in 2007 and 2010. My husband, kids and I live in Fredericksburg VA. We have been in our current house since my son's second birthday--2009. This year (2017) my son is entering 5th grade and my daughter is going into 2nd. We have 2 dogs, a border collie (Mikey) and my new Chihuahua (Sandi). (hint to readers, don't let a child give their pet a human name... we go through a lot of names until we get to the one we want to yell out for...)

I have been crafting since the ripe young age of 10-ish, maybe younger. I was an avid crochet-er and sewer in my youth. I can no longer crochet because of hand issues that started in 1998 (while in college). I have been dabling in scrapbooking since High School and the beginning of college, but really got into it full force after my first child was born.

I love to go to crops because that is where I am able to spread out and get the most done. At home, I am limited to what I pull out at one time, but must put it away shortly after because (as my hubby has remarked) it begins to take over the house (and he can't STAND messes!!).

I commute to DC three times a week, 1.5 hours each way. I have WAY too many years to go before I am eligible to retire, even though I already have 15+ years in. sigh just another one of those things you have to do to keep up with the crafting. Gotta pay for it somehow...

I grew up in Germany. My father was an American government employee, working for the US Army Corps of Engineers. Because of that job, I was born in Fulda, and lived in Stuggart, Augsburg, Berlin, Taunnistein Mountains (Orlen), and Wiesbaden. I have not been back to Germany since my parents moved to VA in 1992. My motto is: Someday. In fact, my husband and I have been planning a trip to Europe since we were married in 2006 (but something always gets in the way of that, pregnancy, young children, finances, etc...). Next Summer may just be the year for us! (fingers crossed, but I'm not holding my breath anymore...)

On a side note, my husband is from Croatia, and grew up in Cleveland, OH.
