From Me to You

My promise to you: Everything I make for you, I will spend time on, put TLC into, and make with you in mind. On items I swap, I will always read your profile and try to find items that will be a pleasure for you to receive. I will rate every swap I receive, and will give hearts when a special touch has been added or it is clear you put effort and TLC into your creation.

st-pete-beach-sunset.jpg Getting to know me...

I am single, have two amazing teenage daughters and a cat named Sofee

We moved to the Pacific Northwest in June '09 and I LOVE it!! I have a new fav thing -kayaking! I love going to unique shops,vintage & bizarre finds and lattes w/friends. I love cities like San Francisco (my fav) where I can find the unusual!! I LOVE the holidays (especially Christmas)!! I love musicals & theater, and to travel. My daughters and I are best friends and do a lot together (check out my blog). I have a huge yearning to go to Europe (would love to grab a day pack, hop on a plane then travel by train throughout the country exploring every little bit.) I am a Christian (follow Jesus) and love getting to know God more & more each day through His amazing creations & all the interesting and unique people in the world . I have friends of all sorts and don't look at people in a different light because of their beliefs or non-beliefs.I am NOT a judge! I love to send & receive mail. I love a new adventure, new friends, & new art ideas! I love the rain, and twilight is my fav time of day. I like pretty and unusual things like broaches,bracelets & earrings & rings, and I have a passion for recycling! I love giving gifts and surprising people,and love volunteering to help in the community whenever possible. I enjoy my Mary Kay business (website above) and selling my jewelry at boutiques.
