    Swap with Newbie: Yep

    Location: Washington

    International shipping: Prefer not

    Favorite colors: Green and Gold

    Item preferences:Not a huge one for jewelry but I can always add flowers and leaves to altered books and jewelry quilts

    Maybe join the 2 small jewellery items and 2 - 3 small misc items together so its 4/5 small misc items including jewellery (depending on swap partners tastes). I personally would count a bag as a large item as they can be a lot of work but I suppose it depends on the crafters' skills. I don't have a working sewing machine so I hand sew.

    Anyway, just my thoughts. I hope they makes sense Happy
