I just want to let all of my swap partners know I am working really hard to solve the issue with my packages. Many of them are being held for criminal investigation by my local post office. Since I have not committed any crimes I believe the issue will be resolved shortly now that I am aware of it. In the meantime I am doing my very best to resend packages to those of you whose swaps are being held. Thank you for all of the kind thoughts. I love our Swap-Bot community.
It's always easier to add my all time fav authors, right?! 1. Amy Tan 2. Erma Bombeck 3. Jan Brett 4. Judy Blume 5. Michael Pollan.

I love all things vintage. I especially love Mid-Century modern designs. I am a struggling knitter. I love playing with natural fibers. I can felt-both needle and wet. I sew a lot. I have been creating wood toys for a couple of years now. I have fun dying all sorts of stuff. I love upcycling. I grow stuff and cook lots of wonderful stuff. I am not afraid to try anything. I am a facepainter/clown. Playing with texture, color and design is so much fun. Interior design--on the cheap--is another crafty hobby of mine.
I am a wonderful woman, wife, mother, grandmother, joey clown, gardener, dreamer, writer, friend, DIYer, fiber lover, crafter and want-to-be homesteader trying to live life on purpose. I hope to have fun and meet new people on Swap-Bot. I have a dog and a cat so please let me know if you have allergies and I will create your swap box in my studio where my pets are forbidden.
