I'm a New York City transplant in CT (not that far I know) I'm an IT professional, currently in the advertising world. but i love making things and crafting. I'm an official "maker" and i'll be posting new things periodically here http://www.instructables.com/member/Suisho/
So back to crafting: I think after my great grandmother passed away and i inherited a ton of her vintage yarns and sewing notions, I really started to let myself actually make things instead of just thinking about it. So I'm optimistic, but very scared to play with her vintage patterns lol.
I'm thoroughly enjoy swapbot as i love getting relevant mail! and even more excited when there is some treasure or goodie come to greet me at the door!
As for swaps that I participate in!! I will always try to swap things I've picked out for myself at some point or things had that certain spark and was subsequently added to my stash! I won't buy anything I wouldn't want to use myself. I won't send you anything that I don't love myself. I love to find the art in everything and I hope you do too! I love to receive little symbolic representations of others so I'll always do my best to do the same for you :)
