UPDATE - Sept. 6th 2013

I'm going to take a little break from Swap-bot, maybe joining some random or private swaps sometime, but decided to take a little hiatus from every week swapping. Mainly because I have my hands full with the new baby ❤❤❤ And also started with my Christmas projects, handmade gifts ONLY... so my knitting/crochet basket is kinda full by the moment and... this week we bought an old Vespa. So I want to use most of my hobby money on restoration for it :-)

Send me a message if you need to take contact, I'll answer as soon as I can.

Have a nice day! ❤

me

Hello! My name is Corina, I’m almost 30 y.o. and live in a little village of Norway. I’m luckily married with the love of my life and we are expecting our first child on August 2013!!

me

I work at a furniture and decoration store and love everything about it. On my free time I like knitting, doing crochet, sewing, collecting 80’s toys, reading, going for a walk, nature, canoe paddling, working on my garden, reading interior magazines, hanging with friends, enjoy music and watching movies or TV. I am also very active and involved on my labor union, respecting workers rights is very important to me.

meThings I like to swap/receive:

meVintage: Mostly papers, die-cuts, postcards, ribbons, scrapbook and journaling material with pictures of: Babies/children, Dolls/toys, Pretty animals, Wedding related, Birds, Flowers. Not much into angels and faeries but is OK.

meThe 50's / 60's: Rockabilly stuff, Housewife/girly style, 50's ads from magazines. Not that much into the 70’s groovy movement.

meToys related: I am an avid collectors of 80’s toys! Mostly cartoon related, like strawberry shortcake, My Little Pony, Care Bears, MOTU, Thundercats, MASK. I also collect some 90’s toys, specially Polly Pocket. Basically I love anything to do with any of the toys from this lists ☺

meNature: I love anything forest related, from colors, imagery or even camping tips!

meAbout Kawaii: I used to be a big collector but when I moved to Norway I lost "all" my kawaii treasures. I'm not interested on starting a huge collection again, but I still love Kawaii stuff, so that means I'm more than happy to receive kawaii theme swaps or some extras like loose stickers and memo sheets. I like all brands and characters (Kamio, Crux, Q-lia, Mindwave, etc.), but not loving Sanrio characters that much. By Kawaii I don't mean "manga-anime" related items, in doubt check this guide: here ^^

meAbout Shabby Chic: I really like romantic and shabby chic style. I would like to receive in this theme: ribbons, paper material, beads, frills, wings, pipe cleaners, a bit of glitter, flowers, etc.

meAbout styles and aesthetics: I like many different styles, from simple scandinavian, to quirky vintage, from shabby chic to rackabilly! I think it all depends on the swap... If sometime you are in doubt about which direction to take just drops me a line! But mainly I will receive any swap with a smile.

meColors: I'm not that picky about this...I think it also depends on the swap. If I have to say some colors would be: light pink, light blue, beige, grey, white. As long you keep yourself away of ugly combinations is ok :P

meAbout Beads: I just use beads on paper projects or as decoration on my dolls, toys and teddies. So don't send me jewellery related stuff (I'm not gonna use it)

meAbout Food: I'm not interesested on receiving food products/recipes. But I will occasionally sign up for tea/coffee and some candy swaps. I like flavors like: vanilla, forest fruits, coffee and chocolate!

meCrochet and knitting: I like granny squares, vintage patterns, amigurumi, dolls, baby patterns, tips about cool knitting websites or yarn stores on the net. My favorite knitting shop/blog is Pickles ☺ And my Ravelry username is: corynvall

meFor Granny Square swaps: I'm planning on starting an afghan with all granny squares I receive from swaps :)

Yarn quality: It doesn't matter that much to me. But I will prefer medium yarns (DK yarns) and worsted are also welcome. Not interested on bulky/super bulky, novelty yarns or boucle yarns. Machine washable is not important.

Pattern: traditional and non traditional granny squares and pattern swatches are welcome! Monochromatic, solid color or mixed colors - your choice. I prefer crocheted squares, not so interested on knitted ones for this afghan, but everything is welcome with a smile.

Colors: I would like to see squares in some of the following colors (in no particular order). Bold nice colors that make me happy :-)

me me me me me me me me

meThings I'm NOT interest on: Disney, Diddle, religion in general, groovy things, Friendship Books.

.

me I take pride on my ratings and compromise to always leave feedback after a swap, of course I expect the same from my partners. Have a nice day!

Cuando quieras repetimos!!! Although at the moment I wish you a good time (as we say in Spain when someone is going to have a baby)

corinaa... i got your package today.. thanks for everything it's so lovely of you.. let me know when you got my letter.. i'd love to hear your story too =) btw.. the envie is kinda broken cause of the button of the atc, you might want to use atc sleeves so that it won't ruin the envie and got lost on the way =), hugs, Kelly
