11  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Round 118 (Sept 1- Sept 30, 2015) on: September 23, 2015 08:09:26 PM
I claim Lo{ve} for Fabric numbers set

Hello! Im Reinikka Smiley I recently moved back home to Washington where my husband and I bought our first house together Cheesy We live with our two dogs. I would love things to decorate my home; wall art and table runners especially. My favorite colors are blues and earthy tones, I also love tacky things like bright orange. Im really into jellyfish right now and have always loved skunks.

I love surprises so please dont feel limited to what I have on my list, check out my pinterest and if anything inspires you please be creative! Cheesy

I have no allergies unless you plan on sending me preserved pork. Oh, and I do not have pierced ears, so no earrings please!

I think that's a good idea too. Could also add crafts you make, like I could pin pictures of journals I've made so if someone likes my style they could pin it, then I'd know I can claim them for one  Smiley

I bought the same Star Trek book twice  Roll Eyes There is one I borrowed from a friend in high school that I always look for in used book stores, I thought I found it because it had a similar title... I got so excited I bought it right away. On the way home I was flipping through it to read a funny passage to my then-boyfriend/now-husband when I realized it wasn't the right book, then I found out I already had that one at home  Tongue Still haven't found the one I've been looking for. lol

I finished constructing my journal for rscowtown today and started filling it with destructive prompts  Cheesy This is the first journal I've made where I haven't worried about any mistakes because they can only add to the final product  Wink I would love to see some vids of you wreaking it! Or pictures of what you do to it  Cheesy
