22  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: SEPTEMBER 2007 BIRTHDAY SWAP! on: September 05, 2007 09:25:29 AM
Hi!
Im turning 30 on September 20th & I have to admit this birthday is already hitting me hard.  Wow thirty used to seem so old.  Now its what I amUg.  Oh well. 

Im in Wilmington, North Carolina.  I live alone with my furry friend, Badyn the wonder dog(as in wonder what he does all day to be so tired at night when I come home! He just lays around.).  I love anything purple, glittery, starry or with moons.  I am pagan so anything with a witchy theme or any of the symbols is pretty cool since I am out about it.  (no we arent scary mean hags we just believe a little different than what a lot of society does. )  Part of my beliefs is in honoring the Earth & doing what I can to cut down on my impact environmentally.  I love to reuse things into new purposes.  Like the bike tires made into rugs, old clothes made into shopping bags, etc.  Have to admit, Im not totally living green, but I changed the light bulbs, so that has to count for something!  

Im trying to lose weight & live as healthy as I can so anything that can encourage that is right up my alley.   I enjoy pin ups of the fifties because they actually have curves which is more of what I am working towards.  I will never be Kate Moss, but I could be more Marilyn Monroe (I wish) one day!

I adore purple, love blacks & whites tooGetting into damask patterns lately.   Im a gal who likes pumpkin spice, vanilla, peach scents & gazing at the stars drinking a nice cup of teaor savoring a good piece of dark chocolate dreaming of the next project I want to try.... lol.  OK so as far as allergies, Im not allergic to any pets, so as long as you dont include any bees, wasp or sulpha drugs in the box, I will be just fine.

Im extremely grateful to anyone who takes the time to send me something.  I did this swap last year & it touched me so much getting such wonderful thoughtful gifts from fellow craftster.  This place is AMAZING!

Ok so since I am turning 30 Im going to try to list 30 ways you could potentially make me smile & grant me a birthday wish! (also in hopes that makes it easier on everyone...)

1.   Candles or stuff to make candles, interesting scents, wicks, containers.  I like to burn them & occasionally pour some of my own. http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog.jsp?CATID=cat13864&PRODID=xprd73549

Ahhhh... chocolate & crafts, sounds like a perfect time for me!

I have to agree that this might be best pushed back a month or so to enable the yummy goodness to make it without melting. 

AWESOME idea!   Grin

Last years was pretty awesome!  I was amazed at the great stuff & well wishes I received.  I'll be watching to see if anything gets going.  Not sure I would be up to co-organizing since I have never done anything like that & I am kinda dealing with helping my sister get her wedding together (Oct 6) which seems to be taking a good bit of time.

Go Virgos... you would think one of us uber organized Virgos would be up to it.

(sorry it isn't me at the moment).

Good luck.   Smiley
