Update my 5/2020- My son is graduating from high school this year. He is ok with not having a ceremony, I am devastated! He is off the UNC in the fall- or he may be at home online- only time will tell. I have enjoyed being home with my family and dogs, but I am so sad about all of the good things we are missing. Swap has given me a positive to put my energy into and I am grateful for that.
I am 44 years old and live in beautiful North Carolina. I am married and have two wonderful children. (2 teenagers) Swapping has been a wonderful source of strength for me and a stress reliever. I love life and my Awesome God! I wish I could draw and be artistic but I am challenged in that area. With swaps, I want to bring joy to the receiver. I also try to be real and true to myself and others. I cuss a little and enjoy 90's rap (that goes hand in hand, right? jk) But I also like an upbeat Christian song. I am flawed, I struggle with raising my children the right way, whatever that is. . I am a people pleaser and I try not to lose myself in that whole thing. I have two sweet Schnauzer dogs Abella and Ava Grace. I will always send a swap as well as rate.If I did not rate you...I didn't get the swap, but I don't require another one to be sent because I know the mail system is not perfect. If you do not get a swap from me please let me know, I will happily send another in it's place.
I love to make junk journals, art journaling(not an artist by any stretch),decoupage, flip books and DIY. I play around with water colors. I also like to chalk paint furniture.
