*** IMPORTANT NOTICE*****

Update: 5 DECEMBER 2010 Im sending out the packages little by little now that everything at my home is fixed. Please be patient and as proof of my sending out im getting Delivery Confirmation with all my US shipping, for Canada shipping I will give you the Customs Declaration number which in case of loss should be enough to ask about the package.

I will be a tad bit late in my swaps because of the Hurracaine Earl that just passed (we have been without power or water for the past few days. Now I hear on the news there will be another storm/hurracaine passing by wich probably will extend the days we are left without power. Im going to be staying with some relatives untill they fix the power cables (wich were severed by fallen trees) and until then all my art supplies and swap packages will have to stay home. As soon as I can go back home then I will send out all my packages.

I try to be a Jack of all Trades, I try everything at least once. My favorite crafts to make are more art-than-craft. Painting is my therapy. I also do many paper related crafts, like paper mache ,altered matchboxes, shrines, and have tried scrapbooking. I have a sewing machine, but I'm still new at it. I tend to get inspired by almost anything, and I express my happiness and frustrations in my craft.

They always lived for me... did you know there's a second book? I've not read it, but my husband was all like 'WOAH, there's another book' - he loves The Giver too, by the way :D x

SyntheticStars on Jul 19, 2010:

oh my gosh... you've got The Giver in your list of favourite books... you're the only other person I know of who's read it. It's one of my favourite books ever, ever, ever :D
