USPS Debacle

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.

Favorite Books

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 a good crafty book, a good chick lit and a great children's book. Here's a link to my audible book shelf: http://www.audible.com/lib/ref=avalidate-libtnaft1?ie=UTF8&pfrdr=01BP08V59KCQTY9Y8XDS&pfrdm=A2ZO8JX97D5MN9&pfrdt=101&pfrdi=0&pfrdp=1714365182&pfrds=top-nav-ftx

Favorite Movies

I love a great chick flick. I want to feel good when I leave the theater. A non-violent drama and a good documentary also please me.

Favorite Television

My all time fav TV shows: 1. Thirty Something 2. Parenthood 3. Brothers and Sisters 4. Weeds 5. Desperate Housewives 6. Alley McBeal 7. The West Wing 8. Orange is the New Black 9. ER--the early years 10. The Fosters

Favorite Crafts

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.

All about me

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.

Likes

Things I would love to have in a swap box: Water color, nature, gnome, vintage or fairy postcards, coffee mugs with straight sides and state or province on them, old jeans--huge braided rug project, onion skins-just the dry crunchy part for dying, anything vintage, dark chocolate, tried and true from scratch recipes that freeze well, natural fiber fabric & yarn scraps like cotton, wool, silk, etc.. , acorns, acorn caps, unusual rocks, sea shells, oak or maple leaves and other found natural objects, bits of wool or roving, old wool sweaters, mermaids, clowns, unicorns, fairies, gnomes, knights, dragons and other mythical creatures, a local made treat from your neck of the woods, beeswax candles or beeswax, interesting napkin rings--one is better than a set, walnut hulls--dying again, Black tea--for drinking not dying scrabble tiles wood beads organic and heirloom seeds Anything you would like to share!!! Oh yea I have a board Pinterest made up entirely of swap wants. Here's the link: http://www.pinterest.com/jetrip/wishlist-for-ongoing-wish-swap/ Thank you for swapping with me!!!

dislikes

While I would totally be grateful for anything you send me, these are things that I would likely have to pass on to others: Scented items due to allergies, Commercial mascots like Disney, My Little Pony, Power Rangers, Lalaloopsy, etc.. , acrylic, nylon, polyester, plastic, etc..., White chocolate

Favorite Music

I love 1950's pop, early 80's pop, classic rock and roll, hair bands, jazz, blues, folk and good children's music.

I think your DIY capability is way higher than mine :) (I have never installed anything on my walls or handled a drill myself :P) I have now saved the handyman site ...

Comment: Oh dear, I feel so badly about this. I had completely forgotten to rate you. :( I did receive your second postcard and it is proudly on display on my fridge. I have decided to call it , "Man about to get face planted by a fly." I really like it, no worries! What I love about swaps is it gives everyone a chance to try new things and share them with others. So thank you so much for your art!!

Comment: I have changed my rating due to the amazing package you sent to make up for the first one not going through. I'm all about giving people second chances, especially if they work hard to fix the problems. In the future, better communication would keep me from rating early, and I would instead wait for something to show up before rating! Thanks for the unique bookmark, all the extras, and especially the otter post card!
Response: I am so happy you enjoyed the post card with Thomas the Otter--he is a bit of a local celebrity around here. You are welcome!

Just an FYI, I didn't get your Carpe Librum Pick My Next Read #1 swap. It's just a letter (I assume) and I'm told you're only one state away from me so it really should be here soon. I haven't heard for you so I guess you didn't notice I haven't rated..? Anyway, can you resend real quick? I need to rate to close out the swap....

Hey, just received the last package you sent...thank you, thank you, thank you, again, for everything!
