:: IMPORTANT:: I WILL BE ON HIATUS FROM SWAPPING!!! I am not sure for how long yet, but I am too busy for swaps at the moment. Thank you!
I am a 25 year old married gal with the adventures of an 8 year old. I don't like growing up. I am a collector, but I strive to live simply and enjoy the small things in life. I have always loved written letters. My husband and I write letters to each other still. I am a Disney-holic. I currently work as a Disney Princess with a company that does Princess Parties. https://www.facebook.com/PartyPrincesses I live and breathe Disney. But not Disney like you would think. I am infatuated with the history, the stories, the making of, and the man himself. Walt is my biggest inspiration in life, followed by William Shakespeare. I play a lot of RPG video games, as well as PC games. I like to live as simple as I can and I am working to be even simpler. My husband and I are working our way to planning and building our own very tiny house together. We want a garden where we sustain ourselves and use alternative energy sources for power and water. I also want to travel. I want to see everything, everywhere. My mind is so curious, it never sleeps.
I rather not tell everything about myself because I want to explore and share those things with my new prospective penpals.
NOTICE: Sometines I send ON the last day because it works for me. I don't do it every time but I do sometimes. According to the rules there is nothing wrong with this. :)
*I LOVE getting Polaroids, old or new!!!! *
I am a bit of a hobbyist. I am a film photographer. I collect old cameras and use most of them. I own about 20 or so Polaroid cameras (from all different years). I have seven 35mm film cameras, 5 120mm cameras, 1 wet plate camera, and 3 126mm cameras.
I paint and draw. I sew, too.
I collect and actively wear vintage clothing. I buy most of my things at Goodwill's all over the place (when I travel). I have gotten some of my best items from a local theatre that was getting rid of their stock of clothing from 80 years of collecting . Vintag tea cups and pots, as well.
I have a very large retro video game collection (as well as current) from NES to current consoles, handhelds and PC. I favorite genres to collect are horror and JRPG's. My collection cost more than my car, and I am ok with that. :D
I have other collections. A rock collection that I have had since I was about 6. A card game collection of anything from Pokemon, to Magic, to My Little Pony. My anime collection is pretty huge. I have a HUGE dice collection because I play a lot of Dungeons and Dragons. I have a large board game collection. Lots of hats, mostly vintage. An obscene collection of teas. Really I could go on... I am a bit of a nerd.
I love old movies. I am a sucker for old Hollywood and glamour. My absolute favorites are Some Like it Hot, The Big Sleep and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. My favorite stars include, but are not limited to: Katharine Hepburn, Paul Newman, Jimmy Stewart, Lauren Bacall, Jean Harlow, Greta Garbo, Marilyn, Cary Grant, Vincent Price and Liz Taylor. Also a huge fan of Asian horror movies. Some of my favs are, Tale of Two Sisters, Cinderella, Ju-on, Audition. Other movies, Across the Universe, Rocky Horor Picture Show, Young Frankenstein, O Brother Where Art Thou, Moulin Rouge, A Beautiful Mind, Harry Potter, Aviator, The Count of Monte Cristo, The Birdcage, Memoirs of a Geisha, Shakespeare in Love, Big Fish, A Knights Tale.
My favorite TV shows are, but not limited to: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, The Mentalist, House of Cards, Zorro (black and white), The Wonderful World of Disney, The Brady Bunch, I Love Lucy, Happy Days, Bewitched, Chopped, Iron Chef, Cutthroat Kitchen (Food Network in general)...
I read a lot. I read some fiction, (Harry Potter is a must, I grew up with him) but mostly historical things. I am in love with Elizabethan writers as well as writers from the Romantic Era. My all time favorite novel is The Modern Prometheus, or as most people know it, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. I am in love with Shakespeare. I adore works by Lewis Carroll, Christina Rossetti, and Johnathan Swift. I own every book from which I studied in college; I never sold one back. I also indulge myself with historical biographies on lives of English royalty and old Hollywood stars. I love to learn about the decadent and mysterious lives that noteworthy people have lived.
Things I do not like: Anything religious. I respect your religion, no matter what it is, but I am not a person of faith. Anything bashing anyone. Do not send me ANY distasteful or non PC Disney items. I do not appreciate vulgar Disney material.
