About Me

2/28 Update...

I see and feel warmer weather in my area. I sure hope Spring is here. I just saw two robins in my yard filling their bellies. One was very plump, so I hope baby birds will be chirping about soon. On this last day of February, I am so happy to reflect on how great a month it was with two birthday celebrations, a trip to Disneyworld and Disneyland, and most importantly visiting with family from coast to coast. I am looking forward to a busy March planning a graduation for my daughter, finishing some house projects, and continued volunteering in my community. Also, a friend and I are hosting a paper crafting class this month. I feel ever so blessed!

My life thus far... I am an eclectic soul with much love for my family and unending love for my daughter who was diagnosed on the Autism spectrum at an early age. I support those with disabilities and the desire for our society to be more accepting of their conditions. Human behavior intrigues me and I enjoy learning new techniques and curriculum in the education field. I completed my teacher certification last Fall. College is very addictive and I have a desire to pursue another degree. My husband and I relocated and built a new home last February. I have yet to open every box. For shame! I am mentally drained as I had to leave my family behind to move, but I am so fortunate to be able to travel back and visit.

I am extremely dedicated to friends, family, paper crafts, my faith, and Yelping.

We just adopted a puppy! We are in heaven with our sweet Oreo, who is a bischonpoo. I am obsessed with buying her toys, jackets, treats, and bows. All love.


My favorites:

Love unique handmade jewelry: birds, crosses, hearts, or pretty dangles.

Prayer cards with Psalms or uplifting words.

Love farmhouse style.

Love junk journals.

Love items with birds because daughter's nickname is J-bird.

Interests include traveling, meeting people, adapting to cultural surroundings, and reading.

I have been on a huge Disney kick the last year with three visits! Christmas and birthday's are much more magical there. Countdown is less than 120 days until we go again.

One of my fave places to go to is New Orleans and adore Cajun food and listening to Jazz.

Also a beach lover! Usually go to Myrtle Beach with family but love Turks and Caicos, Aruba, and Pinel Island. The feel of sand on my toes is heaven! Prayers for all those affected by Irma.

Music is a huge range from 80's, Jazz, Pop, Rock, ALternative, holiday, Christian, gospel, and Blues.

Favorite flower is a gerber daisy, love the pink shades!

Favorite Television: Younger, Power, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Outlander, House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, Walking Dead, Shameless, Luther, Tha Man in the High Castle, Goliath, Marvel series like Luke Cage, oh wow! That's a lot of Tv! Also too much on the Food Network and Cooking channels.

Books: I read fiction and non fiction.

My house decor: farmhouse style with mosly grey, black, and beige.

I love to bake! I like making cookies, cakes, brownies, lemon bars, Hamantashen,, bread, and cupcakes. I have a sweet tooth.

Love chocolate but trying to quit. :)

Favorite scents are Clinique Happy Heart, Philosophy Amazing Grace and Pure Grace.
Love Philosophy lotions and soaps, BBW vanilla bean body cream or any of their nourishing hand soap that isn't too floral or musky. Also love Gold Bond healing hands cream.

Not one to do my nails often. Only in the Spring and Summer. So unglamorous.

Favorite beverage in morning is coffee in my Keurig. Tazo Zen green tea, Lemon zinger, Starbucks Breakfast blend, and other medium roast coffees.

I pledge to rate!

I strive to rate my swaps and hope those receiving mine will too! I always send my swaps on time and enjoy sending happy mail all over the world. If you would like a private swap, please PM me. :)

Also, my motto is be nice or just don’t swap.

I love to read my partners profiles and discover about them when I send a swap. I take pride in what I send out. If for some reason you don’t receive from me, please contact me. Case in point... I recently had a swap from last year finally arrive in July. Crazy!
