About Me

I have been on a bit of a break...a long break, LOL Towards the beginning of my break I got discourage by some of the items I was receiving and ratings that were being left, BUT I was one of the original members of swap-bot and I miss it so after such a long break I want to get back into some swaps!

Now for the fun stuff:

I am 34 years old and live in Washington, not the DC. :o) I received my teaching certificate back in June 2008, but other than subbing for 4 or 5 years I never found a full time position. I love kiddos none the less even though I don't have any of my own. I am very active in my church, where I am the youth and Vacation Bible School Director, and the local F.O.E., Eagles, club. All of these keep me VERY BUSY. But you gotta enjoy life while you have it. I am two time Past President of the Wenatchee F.O.E. and I have been Secretary of the Auxiliary for 6 years. I am an in charge kinda person and if no one is controlling a situation I tend to be the person to take charge. Hey someones gotta lead, right?

I love all things artsy fartsy but my current hobbies mostly center around painting (watercolor and acrylic), crochet, button making ( I have 2 button pressing machines) and of course making masks.

I am also trying to get into more writing since I feel I have a lot to say and need somewhere to express it. I am a very easy going person and just LOVE to get things in the mail, as long as its not bills, those are not my favorite :O)

Favorite Music

Country. I was raised on country. Starting to get into some of the religious Christian music and SOME top 40 stuff.

Favorite Movies

I like pretty much all movies but horror flicks. Too hard to sleep. LOL

Favorite Television

All the CSI type shows, Medical shows, Ripley's Believe It Or Not, those fun types of shows, Sometimes good 'ole cartoons

Favorite Crafts

Crocheting, Kid's Crafts, Anything Crafty, I have been getting into some Polymer Clay

Favorite Books

I love mystery romances. Gregory McGuire, who rights about the other side of fairy tales, I really enjoy these books. I enjoy anything fun to read and funny. Nothing too difficult, I don't like trying to translate the vocabulary in order to understand it. Lately I seem to really enjoy reading paranormal YA books. Vampires, witches, zombies, ghosts, that fun stuff, I don't know why but it works for me :O)

Love, Love, Love

My Favorite Colors

  • Yellow
  • Lime Green
  • Bright Orange
  • Purple
  • Blue
  • Pink
  • Anything bright

Things I like to get...

  • Hawaiian stuff (Especially Flip Flops, Hibiscus, and Palm Trees)
  • Jewelry
  • Goofy, weird Stuff (It doesn't even really to need a purpose that makes all the more fun)
  • Art Supplies
  • Crocheting Supplies
  • Christian Things (But not overly religious, I like crosses and such but not really into crucifixes)

I really love...

  • Flamingos!!
  • Glittery Stuff
  • Things with flipflops on it
  • Cute monkeys
  • Fun crocheted stuff (cutesy or just off the wall)
  • My name on stuff (its hard to find WINDY spelled correctly)

Swaps That I've Been Flaked On

I have been on a break so none of my flakes are current :)


I love ALL fairytales. But I especially like Cinderella, the Princess and the Pea (especially "Once Upon a Mattress") and The Valiant Tailor (also known as "Seven in One Blow")

Comment: Thank you so much for the awesome cards! I haven't seen those deck designs yet. These playing card swaps have me wondering just HOW MANY different deck designs there are! haha!
Comment: Thank you for the great cards - those are fun ones! And I love the red glitter paper. I do a lot of homemade postcard groups on Postcrossing, and I like to make collage cards. This paper will add a fabulous touch! And how funny that we're both in WA. That doesn't happen very often. Lol

Comment: lol -- no glitter bomb from you! In fact, my first thought was, how did they get soooo much glitter on here and none of it is coming off??? Love it! :) I resisted putting glitter on my dislikes list for a long time because I didn't want to sound cranky (like I know I do now), but I'm pretty sure that one swap had extra glitter dumped into the envie before mailing. A true glitter bombing. My husband was laughing so hard. Your swap is perfect -- I love the cards (sooo cool!), the blingy paper, and the sweet little buggy sticker. Thank you!!
Response: Not cranky! LOL I LOVE glitter but that would have irritated me too πŸ˜‚
