About Me

I'm married and have 1 dog and 2 new kittens. I'm a teacher. I love to travel.

Please! If you don't receive a swap from me, let me know and I will be happy to re-send. I have found that the USPS cannot be trusted. They even returned to me the entire top inch of an envelope I sent, the rest of which was just lost due to their machine tearing it up.

If you receive something from me with postage due, please tell me and I will reimburse you for it.

Please rate me--I want to know that you received my swap because I DO NOT flake!

Likes / Dislikes

While I like anything that a person is nice enough to send me, I don't particularly care for cartoon-themed items or country/western items.

And please, no friendship books, decos, etc.--I don't swap those.

My favorite color is red, but I like all colors.

Following are some particular likes:

notecards

stationery

washi tape

ribbon, lace, fibers

Favorite Crafts

I'm not an artist by any means, but I love to make greeting cards and other paper crafts like bookmarks. Pinterest has provided me with much inspiration! Thanks to Swap-bot, I've gotten interested in ATCs, inchies, and altered books/notebooks!

I also love to cross-stitch--I guess because I can't draw pretty pictures, I get some satisfaction out of stitching them.

Favorite Books

Currently Reading: The Outsider by Stephen King

Favorite book? I just love books period. If I could make a living by reading, I'd be in heaven! I'm a long time Stephen King fan. I enjoy several different genres, but I tend to lean toward fantasy-- alternate realities, dystopian societies, mythical creatures, etc. I'm not a big fan of westerns or nonfiction, though, especially not self-help. I'm in a book club that meets once a month.

Favorite Music

I like alternative music best. Alanis Morissette, Muse, Florence + the Machine, Hurts, Of Monsters and Men, Mumford and Sons, Sia, etc. But I also like 80's music, some Pop music (but not teen-agery music like Justin Bieber), classical sometimes, some hard rock. I'm not a fan of country music, but there are a few country songs I like.

Favorite Movies

**Latest movie watched: Captain Marvel **

I love going to the movies. I just love the dark theater, the big screen, the loud sound, and the popcorn! I always go with my sister and husband. I prefer horror, action/adventure, thriller, mystery, sci-fi, and drama more than comedy and romantic. But I'll go see those as well. I also like foreign films and don't mind reading subtitles. Some of the best movies I've seen are foreign. I like some old movies, but I don't tend to be drawn to those.

Favorite Television

The TV keeps me company. I don't necessarily need to be watching it, but I like having it on. However, I do have several shows that I love.

The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead, Amazing Race, Vikings, NCIS, Big Bang Theory, This is Us, Doctor Who, The Great British Baking Show, and The Graham Norton Show--I know I'm leaving some out, but those are the ones that are on right now that I watch. Some shows that I love that have been or will soon be cancelled are Grimm, Fringe, Psych, Warehouse 13, Alphas, Longmire, Almost Human, Being Human, and Firefly.

Response: I'm glad you like it! Was it the jar with flowers? If so, it's a Stampin' Up set called Jar of Love. I got the coordinating dies to go with it. I really like that set. Thanks for the heart!

Comment: Thank you for the beautiful card and I loved your long letter. I enjoy reading about people's lives and what they are doing! I don't read like I use to but than I am doing other hobbies, like swapping and penpaling! I like the washi tape as well! Thank you!
Response: I'm glad you liked it! I love writing letters and am much more talkative on paper than in person. Thanks for the heart!

Comment: I like this card a lot. Those TH birds are the cutest. I'll use it for sure. I'm curious what you used to color the embossed paper background. I've tried sponge and dauber, but yours looks better than what I do. Thanks, much.
Response: I'm glad you like it! They are cute birds, aren't they. I rubbed the embossing folder on an ink pad and then embossed the paper with the ink on the embossing folder. It ended up a little messier than I wanted, but I thought it looked okay. I hope it will work for you! Thanks for the heart!

Comment: I love the note card and stationary papers! Very nicely done. I like feathers :) Thank you.
Response: I'm glad you like it! I love writing letters on pretty stationery, but it's not easy to find around here, so at least I can make my own! Thanks for the heart!
