March 23, 2021 Update:
I have become a gaming, yarn horde-ing, knitting, crocheting (reg and Tunisian), try making anything I have a pattern for, swapper drowning in WIPs. :D I'm drinking more coffee than tea these days, which helps with my super late nights (the boys make it hard to get any projects done during the day lolz). I'm slowly responding to my penpals, long letters are no longer as fun as stitching. I love snail mail tho so I may eventually just swap here and maybe keep one or two pals. At any rate, I have tons of penpal supplies I would love to trade for yarn lolz. Hit me up for personal swaps.
I still love reading but I'm solely audiobooking it these days. Gotta multitask! I'm currently seeing what all the fuss is about for the Outlander series. Wow, only on the second book but I'm hooked :P
I’m super excited that having a penpal is still a thing! 😂 I've started writing folks and I'm getting to know new and interesting people. However, I also want to get more into swaps and postcrossing.
I’m pretty laid back and have had friends of all walks of life back in the day. I’ve lost touch with my high school and college buddies though.
Anyway, here’s a list about me:
-I love reading and listening to YA, historical inspirational fiction, and Sci-Fi novels.
-I enjoy gaming (preferably the more casual stuff like Sims, match three, jigsaw puzzles, time management-notably the Delicious Emily series, Stardew Valley, and Minecraft). I'm currently hooked on Farm Together.
-Hulu and Netflix are my jam! I also watch Amazon Prime, The CW, and CBS apps. I love binged sci-fi, comedy, and family friendly shows. Some shows I've recently watched again are Friends, Frazier, Merlin, Robin Hood, The Secret Circle (so sad it was only one season), When Comes the Heart, Good Witch, Family Matters (aka Steve Urkel show), Step by Step, 7th Heaven, Whose Line is it Anyway, and several Netflix originals and Stand ups (Noah Trevor and Kevin Hart are my favorites). I recently went through Hercules on dvd, I didn't realize Xena was a spinoff from that show, I just thought they were supposed to be during the same time frame. They grew her character quite well, I didn't like her at first. I’m currently watching The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air (quality program ❤️❤️❤️❤️).
-I am still making friendship bracelets... SMH I know, I'm trying to transition to making book marks instead, I'll actually be able to use them. ——I’ve since branched off to crocheting some of everything (coasters, doilies, blankets, etc) I love Creative Grandma, Jayda In Stitches, The Crochet Crowd, and Fiber Spider on YouTube I’m currently learning Tunisian Crochet 🧶 12-3-20- I’ve gotten pretty good at crochet, knitting, and Tunisian crochet. I’ve made tons of cloths, scarves, afghans and blankets. I’m currently n working on my first storm trooper graphgan. Update: That Storm Trooper graphgan turned out AWESOME!!! Weaving in the ends was the biggest pain. At any rate, I'm thinking of making another but learning to sew... hmmm or maybe just getting someone to sew fabric on the back to cover all the ends.
-I have adult coloring books are in every room (never know when the urge to color will hit). I’m not at all artistic but I love to pretend 😂 I wish I could draw or paint. Update: Still have a bunch of books, pens, and pencils but not coloring very much as of late
-I recently obtained a die cutter and I'm trying to learn paper crafting techniques. Update: Meh, I pull it out once in a blue moon to make envies and embellishments when the mood hits.
-I love unicorns, mermaids, Hello Kitty, Disney, Marvel, pink, purples, and all things girlie Update: Yeah, some things just don't change.😂
-I love yarn of all types, weights, and sizes. My husband is convinced that I have a problem. Lolz 😂 Update: I definitely have a problem. Yarn is my precious and I can never have enough lolz.
-Also, I love tea! Especially, Chai and English Breakfast, but I’m down for trying new ones. Update: I like tea but need coffee! I love trying different types of K-cups. I also drink lots of warm water with True Lemon, True Lime, or True Orange drink mixes in them.

I love the Itty Bitty Stitchery swaps on WIYM. I love receiving everyone's lovely works! I also love the excuse to try making new things. 😂 I like to be surprised but if you're at a loss for what to send I can always use more earrings, necklaces, bracelets, tops (large), hooded cowls, or hats. I'm currently making a pouch for my current swap partner. :D
I also may send thank yous via snail mail in addition to the 5❤️ for above par swappers. 😁 I’ve had some straight into the trash swaps so I like to reward some folks that go above and beyond. You make the duds worthwhile. At any rate, don’t feel obligated to reply. You can if you like but it’s not expected. 😊
If there are ever any issues with my swaps feel free to reach out. I weigh all my envies and generally use correct postage but everyone makes mistakes here and there. I have no problem keeping happy mail happy 😉
Yarn hoarding is my favorite hobby. I can never have too much and I keep finding places to put it all 😂 I prefer Acrylic for most things because it’s soo easy to clean but I do dabble in wool. Also, I love cotton for clothes and cleaning projects and chenille for soft blankets and dusters.
I knit, crochet, Tunisian crochet, and macrame and wouldn’t mind participating in personal swaps.
I can never have too many bags or wearables (L). I love swiffer covers and dusters.
