About Me

If I haven't yet rated your swap, please don't hesitate to send me a nudge.

I send all my swaps! If you haven't received one from me, please message me asap to let me know. The post office does lose mail. While it may not be often, it absolutely does happen.

If you're a little running late sending a swap to me, please let me know. I'm a pretty understanding person.

I'm a 43 year old Christian, newlywed and mom of three sons. Bret 26, Ryan 20 and Jake 15

I live in sunny California. I was born here and have never lived in any other state. I have traveled outside my backyard on occasion. States I have been to. Oregon, Arizona, Nevada - for Las Vegas of course. Pennsylvania, New York and Ohio.

I welcome any religious items. I celebrate all holidays. Easter is my favorite. I have 3 dogs, a Betta fish, and a 7 year old goldfish. In the past we have had parakeets, a lizard, rats, a hedgehog, turtles, a rabbit and hamsters. My sons have definitely had their fair share of pets.

 CRAFTS and HOBBIES 

Scrapbooking Making cards Photography Sewing - I got my sewing machine about 14 years ago. I made very simple curtains and matching throw pillows for my sons bedroom. I have only used my machine for hemming pants occasionally since then. Recently I've been practicing a little in hopes to make my own quilt one day.

Thanks to this wonderful site, I newly discovered ATC's and mixed media about 2 -3 months ago. I really like it a lot.

Crafts/hobbies I would like to try soon: Crocheting Creating Chunky Mini's Pocket letters I have purchased yarn several times and have yet to learn how to use it.


Likes:

Colors: I like all colors. Especially Teal, dark blue, yellow, black Metals: all, especially copper Love all off Gods creatures, especially Ladybugs, Snails, Butterflies, Koi fish, hummingbirds peacocks. All birds really. Flowers: All, especially Amaryllis, roses and orchids

Pretty stationary, envelopes, note pad paper. Mechanical pencils. Embellishments, die cuts, scrapbook paper, ephemera, embossed papers, washi and stickers of course!

I love florals, shabby chic, girly, pretty and cute things. Like Unicorns and rainbows. Whenever I see a rainbow it makes me think of Gods promise :)

I collect glass figures. Glass paper weights Miniatures.

I'm a scrapbook paper addict and am quite happy with my addiction.

Extra items I would appreciate and haven't received one yet: Jewelry- store bought or handmade Fuzzy socks or any cute type Candy - love all kinds! Lip balms or makeup/beauty samples Clear stamps Mechanical pencil (YAY! I just received 3 from Tsimington) Pens

I recently purchased some paints and white canvases. Once I practice a little I plan on making a larger piece for my home. My hubby created a huge canvas paint splatter for our living room last weekend and it came out amazing!

All little more about me: My hubby and I both own our own businesses. He works out of the home, and I'm fortunate to be able to work from home.

When I was a single mom years ago, I worked for a photography company for several years before doing freelance. I love photography! I still take photos every day, just no longer of people. I take photos of clothing now. I am looking to hire a model in the next 2-3 weeks for my clothing business, which I'm actually really excited about since photographing people is my passion.

I have also worked the well known pediatrician Dr William Sears. He has wrote several books on child rearing. One of my favorites of his is: The NDD Book. NDD stands for Nutrition Deficit Disorder. How a lot of parents feed their kids has become quite an issue. Especially with a household of both parents working, which can equal less home cooked meals and too much packaged foods. I can provide tips for busy moms who want to incorporate more Whole Foods into their families diets, as well as helping moms to change old habits and reshape your child's taste buds. I worked at his Irvine California office promoting his line of products, like his snacks and vitamins. I also was a community moderator for his Facebook page. Based off of Dr Sears philosophies and his books (yes, it was required that I read them all) and with my own experience of being a mom for many years, I answered questions parents had regarding all areas of parenting concerns. I also wrote the daily nutritional tip. I really enjoyed working for Dr Sears. I admire his passion for kids and family. Every child is uniquely different and special. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask. If you've been wanting to change your kids diets but are being met with resistance, that's totally normal. The key is to be consistent and not give up. I'm here if you have a question or concern. No question is too small :)
