My name is Jess. I Live in Va with my awesome 9yo son Aiden, wonderful boyfriend Rob and our newest arrival in February our beautiful daughter Persephonie June.
I can't spell and I accept this.
I manage an arboist supply shop-selling chainswas and gear for tree cimbers. Kinda fell into it-I knew nothing about this industry when I started but I love it now.
I absolutly love swapping!! Because of it I have now made my first greeting cards, my first atc, and my first whimsy jar!!(and a few new obsessions..lol)I have also just discovered pocket letters and I'm hooked! if anyone wants to swap pl's let me know!
we are gamers! I recently just got a PS4 and we got Nintendo new 3-ds' for all of us, we have been having a lot of fun with those as a family. I have been hooked on Mortal Kombat X lately.....that's mommy's and daddy's me time cuz its a little to violent for my son.
I'm a huge dork and love all things geeky!
our family is into RC trucks,gets us out side and moving around. We have been having a blast doing it.
I am a pretty crafty person and I looooove make things. Dose'nt really matter what it is, as long as I am being creative I am happy. I am also a pack rat, I love collecting "stuff" anything I think is fun,pretty,interesting or if I can use it in a project it ends up at my house.
I am also a planner newbie now!!
Im so glad I found this site and I can't wait to start swapping. Im so excited to start adding more to my collection and sharring it with others as well!
I like just about any craft.my current obsession is crocheting-been doing it about 3 years now and pocket letters!!! I love making all sorts of stuff..As far as favorites, just about any glass craft. I use to make glass beads, mosaics, and stained glass. I am fascinated by all the different thing glass can do, it is an amazing medium and one sadley I have no room to work with as of late:!! I also have gotten really in to making ATCs as well.In addition I love sewing, drawing,macrame, painting, scapbooking and whatever else happens to tickle my fancy at any given time. It really just depends on my mood. I will try anything I can get my hands on. Other things I do when the mood strikes me range anywhere from jewlery making to knitting , candle and soap making, pottery and clay........this list could go on forever.

I have really enjoyed swapping here and I strive for a 5 and a heart with every swap I send!! If for some reason you do not recive or feel I didnt meet the requirments of a swap please let me know before rating and i will do what i can to fix it!!
I promise to always send on time, never flake, and alway rate!!(and if you have not received a rating from me let me know,it would not be intentional-I try my best to keep up but im a busy mom with a new baby.
I am a perfectionest and would never send out something i felt wasnt the best I could do and i dont think it is to much to ask that my partners do the same, not only for me but for anyone they are sending a swap too!!!
