Hey there... I notice you've been in a lot of swaps, and listed a lot of fiber allergies. Have you ever had any problems with people sending you stuff you're allergic to?
The only swap I've ever been in, I got wool. As a result I'm nervous of future swaps, but am giving the cocoa swap a try.

LOL I always love reading your allergy list ;) So glad to hear you're at least out of the woods on your cold - I'd imagine you still feel run down! Pneumonia's no joking matter missy! Take better care of you, dang it.
