Brief Bio, News in Your Life, etc:
I am a married mom of three...a 20 year old son, an twelve year old girl, and a ten year old girl.  They mean the world to me!   I am also a preschool teacher, who works with "at risk" students.  I have both a Bachelor's and a Master's Degree in Special Education.  

If you are making me jewelry, please make the necklaces on the longer side...I like them to drape over my bosom; and bracelets adjustable.  Thanks!

I have a wist! Smiley I also have a LONG list of likes/wants/themes!  Here goes:  Indoor hopscotch board (made out of fabric), fabric topped dishtowels that can attach over the oven handle, fairies (not Disney), ladybugs, turtles, frogs, homespun yarn, dyed yarn, chunky loose infinity scarves, cupcakes, ice cream, owls, beads, buttons, whimsies, bow tie necklace, mustache necklace, any mustache related items, jewelry making supplies, Tree of Life and similiar items, jewelry, dotees, Dia de los Muertos, fleece Swiffer sweeper covers, fleece Swiffer duster covers, dragonflies, tattoos (not skulls), gerba daisies, beaded lanyards to wear around my neck to hold my work ID (I would love to receive more than one of these.), a holder for my car registration-car ID paper, etc...for me to put in the glovebox (the ID paper is the biggest, it measures 7 3/4 in. long by 3 1/2 in. long), lavender scented sachets, cool pincushions, lip balm bandolier, yarn pom-poms in every color (made to stand lots of use with preschoolers), a t-shirt with the quote: "Inked and Awesome" on it (I wear size 2x), origami stars, paper beads, silicone molds for resin, "Keep Calm and Carry Yarn" quote, handcarved stamp representing my three children (1 boy, 2 girls) and I, sand dollars, sea glass, aprons for my 12 yo & 10 yo DDs, items that have the quote:  "All who wander are not lost" for DH, pocketbook handles, chair covers for the back of two chairs (PM me for measurements) and tie on chair cushions for two chairs (PM me for measurements) decorated headbands for me (please use the hard 'U' shaped ones), pillowcases with nautical themes embroidered/stenciled on them for my DS' college dorm room, pillowcases with any of my listed themes on them, pillowcases for DH with bugs on them (except for spiders and praying mantis'), anything with the saying: "O'hana.  It means family.  It means nobody gets left behind or forgotten. O'hana."

My Favorite Crafts To Do: CROCHET!!!! Decopauge, hand sew, stamp, I'll try almost any craft if it interests me.
Crafts I Want To Learn: Spinning my own yarn, stamp making, more detailed jewelry making, learn more about resin techniques...

Personal Swap Availability:
Interested in Doing Personal Swaps: not interested at this time

What I Could Make For You:
Beginner to Intermediate crochet projects, decopauged items, resin, etc...

What I'd Like to Receive:
I HAVE A PINTEREST! I ALSO HAVE A WIST! :) Feel free to craft from my "Things I Would Like To Receive For Swaps" board, or you could make me some things for my classroom, from my "Ideas For My Classroom" board. I would like my partner to craft to his/her strengths, while also keeping in mind the theme of the swap we are doing, as well as my likes and dislikes. If you send food, please make sure it is low/no sugar and/or low/no fat. I am trying to lose weight and lead a healthier life. :). Otherwise, I would have to think about it for more ideas, depending on who I was swapping with and when. Also, I have a wist full of items in every crafting medium, so you should be able to find item(s) that are in your crafting d zone. I have a full Craftster profile as well, and I LOVE to gab!
Likes And Dislikes For Potential Swap Partners Or Just For Fun:
Things I Love:
Fav. colors and combos are: orange, orange/white, turquoise/chocolate brown, pink/creme/tan. Items & themes I love: mug rugs, fairies (not Disney), ladybugs, turtles, frogs, homespun yarn, kool-aid dyed yarn, chunky/loose infinity scarf, any type of sewn scarf, cupcakes, ice cream, owls, stationery, pens, stickers, beads, buttons, whimsies, bow tie necklace, mustache necklace, jewelry making supplies, Tree of Life themed items (pendants, etc...), jewelry, dotees, Dia de los Muertos, dragonflies, tattoos (not plain skulls), lavender scented sachets, cool themed pincushion, sturdily made yarn pom-poms in every color to use with my preschool class, origami stars, paper beads, silicone molds for resin, Scrabble tiles, anything with the "Keep Calm and Carry Yarn" quote, garbage bag for my car, plastic bag holder, the 'Serenity Prayer', and the quote: "O'hana. It means family. It means no one gets left behind or forgotten.", the quote: "Money can't buy you happiness, but it can buy you yarn and that's almost the same thing.", chapstick cozy/keyrings (exactly like key fobs, except that there's an opening to put chapstick in (I'd love multiples of these to give as gifts!). PM me if you'd like, I love to gab!

Dislikes, Pet Peeves, Allergies, etc:
I don't have any allergies or allergens, but the rest of my family has slight allergies. I can swap with people who have pet(s) as long as the pet is kept away from the supplies and craft. I cannot swap with people who smoke or who have smokers in his/her home. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE craft to your strengths while also keeping in mind what I might enjoy. I put a lot of thought, time, & effort into the swap packages I send out, and it means so much to me when others do the same. I don't particularly like vintage or country style items, lace, or paisley prints. In addition, I cannot use/wear items made out of wool, and I don't wear hats.
