Getting to know me

Right now I am alllll about that washi!

  • here since July 4, 2011. I met my husband in 7 th grade in the year 1999 I have known him for half my life! I love Justin and I am blessed to spend the rest of my life with him!

  • We are v and look forward to that freedom and opportunities that await us.

  • here and Justin shares that passion with me, Its on my bucket list right at the top! In fact we both want to visit new places and see things that most do not get to see. Please do not send me post cards, I will grab a few when I get there!

  • Justin and I recently (2 years ago now) moved out into our first house together so I guess that makes me a housewife. fuck and I never realized how many things need cleaned, scrubbed, fixed or whatever. I am a housewife and at the end of the day I am as tired as the next person. Whats worse is all the effort I put in the house in one day will be gone the next. :) I like cleaning, things are never clean enough. I hate the motto "a clean house is the sign of a wasted life" Booo! I made my own "Always clean like the inlaws are coming over: :D Weee!

  • I am disabled, it is not a physical limitation though. Mental illness is extremely difficult to live with, just ask someone who does, actually just look. They probably do not have to tell you that they struggle with some things that should be easy or considered normal! I have Agoraphobia, Depression, GAD, fibro, OCD, intrusive thoughts, and other "minor" things that are results from my main diagnoses.

Please take notice

  • *My OCD which is currently ruining my life is "sexual" in nature. If you have to send to me please treat me as a "g" rated swapper. I cannot even say body parts without going into a fit of OCD so...yeah.

  • I LOVE MUSICALS they cheer me up and keep me going in life. here A show tune for me is much more then it is to anyone else. Musicals are a swelling of my heart, lessening of my worries and a chance to open my mouth and say things LOUDLY. I love almost all musicals when I hear/watch them. Right now my favorites are Sound of Music, Avenue Q, Annie, Hello, Dolly and Little Shop of Horror!

  • Disney movies are fun for me, but I do not like anything theme Disney for collections. The main reason I like Disney is because no matter what there is some singing in those movies! her here BY far right now my favorite Disney movie is Tangled, I can relate to a cartoon character and I am not too ashamed to admit it.

What can I offer?

  • I will be the first to say that my crafting talents are limited. I put heart, effort, time and learning into each project I make and the end result is what makes me happy. I offer my time to read through your profile. I offer my creativity and my talent with a desire to make you super happy. I will read your profile, I will enjoy learning about you and I will selfishly enjoy creating something that makes you happy, happy, happy.

  • here and here from my projects. By the time I get one done another is right in its place. I do try to keep my craft room clean but sheesh, so many projects so little time!

  • er I cross stitch, plastic canvas and work with felt at times too. I really love the process of taking different threads of different colors and turning them into a lovely piece of something something! I would love to craft you something using my talents!

  • I love to scrapbook and I do it a lot, learning as I go. I also enjoy paper crafts like atc card making, inchies and on and on. I like using all of what I spent my money on!

  • I get that I cannot make something for everyone, I am not that talented. I can always offer up etsy favs for your handmade items. If I can suggest it and you not be offended I will even pay. I am sorry that others frown upon that here but I don't.

What do I want/like?

I am not asking you to head out and buy me tons of things. I know that I have a ton of random stuff that I have bought (clearance, big lots, wholesale) to trade or collected in other trades that I am waiting for the right person to pass along. Maybe you have a half used sheet of sticky rhinestones that you might not use, random ribbons that are not your style or even rubber stamps but you no longer stamp? I am ok with used items (minus beauty products).

  • I collect and use worry stones, pocket angels, pocket tokens and things like that. Sometimes its the only way I can get through a store.

  • Harry potter anything! I'm a proud hufflepuff! The husband is a content ravenclaw

  • here

  • I like anything if it is a seasonal or holiday item. That may sound strange but I am crazy in love with holidays, seasons and decorating for them! I love altered pieces that in some way relate to the holidays!

  • I got a KITTY (and she is a snuggle bunny and a cutie!) and she is my baby!

  • Because of my umm..."issues" I like quotes like "this too shall pass" I know there are more but I am just sitting here with " I heard my momma cry, I heard her pray the night Chicago died" in my head.

  • Pretty pink things. Pink is my favorite color I also like GLITTER! Ha not a color? I do not care, add glitter to any color and its better than before he I also love brown and yellow. I am a sucker for a topaz LOL

  • almost any scrapbooking supply. Ribbon, brads, tags, lace, buttons, metal embellishments, page corners...on and on. But please no eyelets. After never using one for over 6 months I am destashing these.

  • I really like handmade items for me. Heck if you hand make something that I can sit and display on my shelf and is seasonal you may hear me squeal with delight!

  • af here Little cute critters like owls, deer, and of course skunks ga here

  • gems, enamel dots, rhinestones etc

  • But most of all my thing I am most addicted to? here Seasons, are great! I love the change and I love how each one is…different. (Oh boy I sound smart) My favorite thing about season change is that I decorate for each season! I love to collect seasonal things that have been handmade! here and I collect owls in pairs. Also owls that have a season, one I own has a santa hat on, another is holding fallen leaves and one has baby ducks around it with green grass. Its cool for me to be able to combine my 2 loves!


Please do not send

  • Remember gere I do not need those baby supplies. Send them to a mother who needs to fill her scrapbook!

  • Food--- this includes tea, crackers and other things that go inside your mouth!

  • I have short teeny tiny hair, I have to keep it like that. If my hair gets to long and touches my ears or face I about spaz out so I do not need any hair supplies or accessories.

  • h torn, dirty, past its prime should have been tossed not passed along things.

  • I hate bugs, scared to death of them. Butterflies, ladybugs and ants are some of the bugs I am terrified of!

  • he I am not a good speller but you read my profile and know that now :)

Here is my princess kitty! She loves to hide her face while sleeping and cuddle time is best for sleeping and face hiding!!! I have never had a kitty before but I am pretty sure my kitty is a good one.




here That kitty stole my seat while I posted a message on facebook! She is hiding her shame!

We are in a Halloween swap together and I am just reading profiles of those in it with me. We may or may not get partnered, but I am glad to read your profile and am totally impressed with how authentic you are.
