-my name is jo, and this is my first swap!  i turned 28 on the 13th of june, but i try my best to celebrate as long as possible.
-i live in a small town in illinois that is right across the mississippi river from st louis, where i've lived since i was 5.  my husband and i just bought our first home over christmas, and i am having a blasty blast turning it into our home.
-we have 2 kiddos - a 7y/o girl and a freshly 1y/o boy (he's a june birthday, too!).
-i love colors, the brighter the better.  i took a survey one time to determine my decorating style and it called me "funky eclectic", but good luck figuring that one out.

-i have a wish list on my blog that kinda tells you about my style, etc: http://josasser.blogspot.com/2011/06/my-favorite-things-up-for-some-swap.html
-my wist: http://wists.com/
-my pinterest: http://pinterest.com/josasser/

-please, no jewelry, puffy paint, loose glitter, or animal hair.

my wish list . . .

- hooplas.  my hoopla wall has a color scheme of red/aqua/lime green and all 8 inches, so a hoopla made with primarily those colors in any of the following themes: sugar skulls, bunnies, peacock/peacock feathers, catholic insignia (ask or check my blog link above for details), ninjas, cupcakes, coo coo clocks, birdies + the word "tweet", mustaches, or anything inspired by my wists or pinterests (remember - red/aqua/lime green!)

- feltidermy - a huge wish of mine.  desperately seeking a feltidermy yeti, lock ness monster, unicorn, snipe, and dragon.

- throw pillows or throw pillow covers for standard shape forms.  must be colorful and fun.  see my links for a couple ideas

- a wooden growth chart to hang in my kitchen

- scrappy fabric coil bowl in aqua/red/lime green

- a super cool and fun yarn wreath for my front door

- artistic family portraits.  these are a collection i've been working on.  i have a wall of photos, but i mix in pieces of art of my family in with it: caricatures, silhouettes, etc.  if there is an art form that you do well and think would work with this i would love to discuss.

- wearables: an apron in reds/aquas/lime green, colorful t-shirts (no crew neck, ask for size, purple/green/orange/aquas are awesome!) with any theme mentioned above or on my links

craft supplies . . .

-tree branch buttons
-felting wool, dyed or undyed
-chunky yarns
-photo frames, especially ornate, any size
-time (ha!)

extras . . .

-aveda tea
-skyline chili
-mini birthday present for my baby boy (he loves puppets, anything foxes, wears 12-18mo stuff, does a trick where he laughs like count von count from sesame street - it's hilarious!)
