I love snail mail. With technology the way it is today - I rarely ever found anything in my mailbox besides a few bills (not many - I bill online) and a bunch of junk mail (still surprises me they waste so much money AND trees to send so much paper at a time!) until I joined Swapbot! I am passionate about dogs, I wish I could save every abused and forgotten dog in the world. I enjoy making YouTube videos. I love crafts and learning new things to attempt to make. I am married with 2 grown children and 4 grandangels. (3 girls 1 boy ) My favorite color is red . I just redid my bathroom in black and white. There is a splash of red here and there. I am redoing my office at work in black and white as well. I like decorating with charms, buttons, flat beads, ribbon. I love personalized items or monograms (PJG). I love chocolate of pretty much any kind, especially DARK chocolate.
I love atomic fireballs and jelly belly jelly beans. (especially the gourmet flavors like popcorn!)
My little yorkie mix, Miles, is my greatest fan and I just love him to pieces. He has a huge wardrobe and wears XS, as he is 5 pounds. I love Hummingbirds and think they are one of God's greatest creatures. I love gourmet flavored coffees - coconut and caramel flavors are my favs. My grands names : Alayna, Brooklyn, Lily and Tucker (in case you like to do personal items, too!)
I also like : I Love Lucy items, Gone With the Wind items, Wizard of Oz items and Arkansas Razorback items. I just bought the first 2 seasons of I Love Lucy on DVDs. Fun, Fun!
I am into scrappin' (scrapbooking) So of course my obsession is collecting stickers, (especially 3D) embellishments, ribbon, alpha letters, cardstock and anything else I can use to beautify a page. I just bought my first punch so of course, I fell in love with that and will be getting more! My goal is to make a scrapbook for each of my grandangels to give them as they marry. The oldest is only 11 so I think I have plenty of time...lol I an an avid aquarist. Right now I have 5 tanks ranging from 5 gallon to 55 gallon. I breed platys and mollies, snails and shrimp.
I love American Idol and Bridalplasty. Young & Restless is also one of my addictions. I have an hour for my lunch and so I get to watch it every day. If I do have to miss it for some reason I watch it online that night. I love Victoria Secret Pink clothing. Since I ebay a LOT I buy most items online in auctions. I have gotten some really good deals.
I do not like:
Looney Tunes - Baby toons are ok Sponge Bob Sharktales or any of the characters that are not "cute-sy" I like more "realistic" like Barbie, Bratz, Hannah Montana or cute critters like Hello Kitty, Pooh & friends, I am not a Twilight, Star Trek or Star Wars fan AT ALL. I am not a tea drinker at all. I only drink my coffees and water or flavored water. HOWEVER...You will never hear me complain about something I receive because I don't like it - I have no problem with re-gifting - if it is something I just can't use. This is supposed to be FUN - and people who are so darn picky or whiney - well, in my opinion are NO FUN! (Allergies - of course - that is totally different - but just because you dislike blue and you received a blue whatever - whoopie - get over it.)
We are non-smokers but I do have one little furbaby and he does not shed nor will any items I ever send have a "dog smell".
I am finally getting pretty comfortable now with my ATC's altho they may still seem pretty simple to some of you experts...I have read other people's comments where they may say they received one that was thrown together or without much thought...I hope I don't ever receive a comment like that! I don't think I ever do ANY craft without thought or care! I wouldn't be doing them if I didn't care! That would be so discouraging.:-( I only sign up for swaps that I know I can complete so if you do not receive from me - then there is a problem - contact me and let me know and I will resend - I do not, have not, will not flake. EVER...!! I also will not make a big deal out of those who are late due to life happening - just drop me a line and let me know when to expect it if it is going to be late. Courtesy counts...
