6TH APRIL UPDATE I'm up to date with all my swaps, last 2 going out tomorrow, thanx to everyone for understanding.
SWAPS NOT RECEIVED AS OF 6TH APRIL 2008 I still have a lot of swaps that I have not received. today I received an e-mail from a lady in the USA who said that the swap she had sent to me had been returned to her by the Italian post !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Italian postal system and customs have become a real PITA !!! in every sense of the meaning !!! If you don't hear from me it means I have not received your swap, if your swap is returned to you pls let me know.
If you have not received any swaps from me please contact me. thanx joan in italy
I'm an ex pat from London, living in Italy for the last 20 years.
Adore the world of arts and crafts and dabble in most of them, maybe it has something to do with my surname CRAFT !!!
I'm not a person of many words, I tend to listen more than speak, so trying to write a lot to have a full profile hasn't been that easy for me to do. I'm also a SAHM of 3 so my life doesn't allow for many exciting things to be going on all at once ....although I wish it would !!!!! I love tracing the family tree, makes me appreciate life today and all that we have.
I love the world of mixed media and adore making ATCs, inchies, and 4 X 4. I also like making bijoux, raggedy and primitive dolls and trying my best at fabric art but so far haven't achieved a good level. I'm also trying to convert a lot of Italian crafters to take interest in these, as here in Italy most people tend to follow the latest craft fad.
My favourite colours are pastels, hues of browns, oranges and mauves.
I am a Pisces and I adore water......it relaxes me.
My favourite films are the black and white ones from the 40's , cary grant, stewart granger etc. I like the old musicals too, fred astaire, gene kelly. And of course films from the classic books like Dickens etc. My favourite actors are Hugh Grant, Colin Firth, Rupert Everett, Hugh Jackman, Steve Martin and Billy Crystal.
Music, a bit of everything.
looking forward to making loads of international friends thru swaps. I'm happy to be surprised with my swaps ..........for my swap partners making something for me ....the sky's your limit.
phew...... have never spoken so much !!!! LOL
ciao crafty joan
oh and I love to have a laugh.....life's too serious.
NORMALLY POST OUT 1-2 DAYS BEFORE LAST DAY OF POSTING reason:- I have a bad habit of realising that I can make it better and tend to start altering until I'm 100% happy with it. If I post out too soon I end up giving my self a headache thinking what I should have and could have done to make it better. So don't worry your swaps are definately on their way.
Oh I also have another blog in English serendipity-werx.blogspot
