About Me

UPDATE I recently lost my job. Due to the sudden major life change I dropped the ball and missed getting some swaps sent out. I am working on making them up.

My name is Colette (my close friends and campers call me Coco). I'm married with two kids. Ally is 8 years and Wyatt will be 1 on November 10.

I love kids and have been working with them for over 10 years. I will take your teacher reward stickers. I'll use them for summer camp.

If you ever want to send something for someone other then me: my daughter (ally 8yo) and my little sister (samantha 9yo) love superheroes, my little pony, mine craft, pink things, and hello kitty (my little sis). My husband likes a lot of the same things I do. He also is a fan of Star Trek (not so much the original), stargate, Doctor Strange, iron man, electronics ( he likes building computers).

I'd love to do a one-on-one swap with someone featuring my fandoms.

Favorite Crafts

I'm into all sorts of crafting but right now my favorite is papercrafting.

crochet - using recycled items - collages - ATC - knitting - sewing - rag rugs - hair bows

I'm in to making smashbook/junk journals so i would love to receive unique paper/cardstock for it, vintage items, small envelopes, geeky/nerdy pictures/stickers, maps.

I'm starting a smash book/date journal with my fiancé (who is also a nerd...yay!). It will be a record of places to go, things to do and a record of what we have done. I'd love to receive some deco pieces (quotes, journal boxes, nerdy items, etc) for my book.
