About Me

I’m 25, mother of one, 4 year old boy. Married for 5 years, we live in the sticks in Kentucky. Most of my days are spent working as a housekeeper in the mornings at a local hotel, and then chasing a small child around for several hours before I get any time to relax or do my own things. When I have free time, I love to read and I also paint rocks. We are members of a local Facebook rock painting group and we are avid rock painters and hunters. We are also very active in our local Pokémon Facebook group, which we use to interact, but when we are out and about we are on our cell phones playing Pokémon Go together. There’s not much to do in my small town, so we make family time however we can.

~~BOOKS~~

I’ve added this books section since I’ve joined several book & bookworm swaps. My favorite things to read are:

Dystopian future novels

Anything sci-if

Murder/mystery novels

Books based on true stories

Anything in the Young Adult section

James Cameron novels.

There are several books im looking to either read again or read for the first time. The Uglies series, The Harry Potter series, The Gender Games series, The Game is Life series, all the books from “famous people” reality stars, Olympic medalists, etc. The Magic Treehouse series. About the only books I don’t enjoy reading are those that are heavily history, or ones that read like a war novel. Anything else I will try out 😊

I am a huge fan of many things, when I like something, I obsess. My favorite thing in the world is Harry Potter. I love the movies, the books, props, accessories, clothing(socks, hats, scarves, t shirts(2x/3x), wallets, etc). I paint Harry Potter themed items, and am making Harry Potter theme ornaments for a small Christmas tree this year, so I would love anything in that department.

I am a crafter, and I love to paint. I save all types of little things that I love. I like stuffed animals. Owls, giraffes, eagles, sharks, turtles and elephants are my favorite types of animals. I love stuffies of those as well jewelry items 😊

I am becoming obsessed with ATC's! I will gladly accept ANYTHING that I can use for an ATC.. Pretty paper, washi tape, used and new stamps, stencils, stickers, paint pens, markers, gel pens. I love making them and sharing them. If you send me one, I promise to keep it! And if I get assigned to send you an ATC, it will be an original.

I have an unhealthy obsession with mermaids and all things ocean life. If I could be a mermaid, I certainly would be.

My favorite colors are pink, yellow, green, and purple, but I love all colors, especially tie dye and rainbows. I love to read books- all books! I’m always interested in reading something I have never read, but my favorites are sci-fi, fantasy, dystopian world type books, and poetry. I love Pokémon, I believe I mentioned that already.

I like art, pretty much any type. I like posters and cards, paintings, drawings, colored pages of coloring books. I am kind of a hoarder and I collect things to look at and enjoy.

I’ve always been a fan of letters through the mail versus email and facebooking someone. I will probably send letters with any item I swap. I love to write and to get to know people. Everyone has such a beautiful life story if others just take the time to listen to it. I love small talk!

Yard sales and flea markets are my favorite. It is likely you will receive something that once came from a yard sale or flea market if I find it to be in great condition and somewhat intriguing for whatever reason. I also do yard sale my self, aside from the pretty things I keep stored up, I believe if you are no longer using it, it should go off to someone else to use. I regularly purge my home of toys and clothing and games and such that are taking up space and not being used.

I like photography, I own a decent camera and dabble in editing for photos of family. Not huge into the practice, but I do love it and love any photographs of nature or animals.

Sometimes I get to watch tv, and when I do I enjoy reality shows like survivor, teen mom, and the amazing race. I also enjoy medical and crime dramas such as the good doctor and criminal minds. I love the Big Bang theory and Bobs burgers. They are my two favorites.

I like scented candles, bath sets, lotions, perfumes, and nail decorating items(polish, pens and decals)

I am not picky and like almost anything, big or small, and enjoy the thought behind the swap the most. I don’t have any dislikes or anything I wouldn’t enjoy getting, but I am afraid of clowns and would appreciate not getting a clown in my mailbox 😂 other than that, I’m mostly looking forward to sharing the experience, not so much the items themselves.

Some of my favorite things are lavender scented anything, lacy things, neon colors, glitter, charms for my charm bracelet, and coloring items. Anything that I can color myself- notebooks, memos, bookmarks, cups, you get the idea 😊 I love things I can reuse. Old and new postcards are awesome! I like stationary items, scrap paper, pens, markers, colored pencils, erasers, shaped notepads, shaped paper clips. I like magnets, keychains, and sewing items such as buttons, thread, needles, sew on or iron on patches, and ribbon. I am learning to sew and would love to try out new things. I would enjoy getting any kind of material you would like to send, I make pencil cases and Barbie and doll clothes. Also would love to receive patterns if anyone would like to share some! Especially patterns for barbies and small dolls. I am definitely a novice to sewing but I am excited to learn and receive anything I can put to use sewing. I am a proud supporter of Operarion Christmas Child. You pack shoeboxes for children aged 2-14, mostly in other countries. I have been doing this for 3 years and I am in love. I am up to packing over 20 boxes a year. If you’d like info on OCC, please let me know! I will accept any gifts for OCC. School supplies, small toys, stuffed animals, coloring items, etc. I collect year round and we pack in November.

Also, I have a 4 year old little boy who loves to get mail! His name is Kaleb, and he would enjoy anything directed to him. He loves stickers and play-do, he’s a fan of Thomas the train, Paw Patrol & Chuck and Friends. He loves to play in his sandbox. He jut recently started preschool and is obsessed with school supplies (pencils, crayons, erasers, notebooks). He wears a size large kids shirt. normally around the size 10 area. We also love to do puzzles together and make crafts. Thanks for thinking of him, if you do.

I’ve only got a few swaps under my belt, but I do enjoy this experience very much! So far my experience has been fantastic ❤️ I may still be a newbie but I am not a flaker! I am beginning to keep a log of all of my swaps and the partner & date mailed, so please, if you do not receive something, reach out to me and I will track the package or send a replacement, just give me the chance to fix it first please?

He enjoyed the ADORABLE stickers & the funny Elf joke. Thank you so much for making his spirits bright. This was such a fun swap. Merry Christmas!!
Response: It was very fun! Next year I’ll be sure to do more. Kaleb had so much fun getting mail.

Comment: Thank you so much for Graicen's 3 gifts! :) I'm sure she will be thrilled! I'm going to make her wait until Christmas cause I'm a meanie like that, haha! We actually usually do get a little snow by now, but it doesn't look like it's going to happen this year :( Only fire so far :/ Enjoy your beautiful snow & Happy Holidays!
Response: I’ve made Kaleb wait for his presents from Swap-bot as well. Oh well, call me a meanie too I guess 😂 I think it’ll be more fun for him to get all these small thoughtful gifts from strangers ❤️
