About Me

I am a SAHM with four wonderful kids who we used to homeschool but now they are in public school and my husband is serving in Afghanistan for a year so I am going to get back into swapping again. But very slowly!:)

Garret is 14 and is a sports fanatic! He loves all and every sport! He has red hair and is absolutely hilarious and fun! And can be really sweet, sometimes!:D

Griffin is 11 and is also a sports lover!! He is really into TaeKwonDo and basketball right now! He also loves his Xbox 360! He is alot of fun and very sweet, most of the time!

Grace is 10 and is the Princess of the family! She loooooves gymnastics and has a couple of meets coming up! She loves My Littlest Petshop, Tinkerbell, animals, sewing, horses, and really girly things! She is a very, very sweet girl unless you make her mad and then she is a firecracker! But who isn't when they get mad??

Gabby is 8 and she absolutely LOVES monkeys!! Sock monkeys, stuffed monkeys, she is even saving for a real one someday!! She also loves little wooden toys, crafting, drawing, painting, creating, Chococat, anything Hello Kitty, not really a girly girl but she will tolerate it!:D

Favorite Music

I like all kinds of music!! I listen to country the most! What can I say I live in a Cowboy state!! I am really into classical music lately.

Favorite Books

I love to read! I love magazines and I have a really weird thing about how I read those, I read them from back to front! Not sure why but have been doing that for a loooonggg time now!! I usually have at least three books going at the same time.

Favorite Movies

The Notebook, Forrest Gump, The Godfather Series, LOTR, and a ton more that I just can't think of right now!:)Gone with the Wind, Fried Green Tomatoes,

Favorite Television

I, of course, watch Army wives!! Never got into some of the more popular ones. Really hard with four kids running around and a husband who is rarely home!!

Favorite Crafts

Scrapbooking, painting, drawing, paper crafts, knitting, know how to crochet a little but would love to really be able to do it. I am willing to try anything crafty! ATC's, handmade postcards, dotee dolls, that I am now addicted to!! Seems like there is alot of that addiction going on around here!:D

I need to be educated on some of these things!!


PLEASE!! Contact me first if you don't receive one of my swaps! Before you rate me! I will gladly resend! If you don't let me know that you never got my swap, I can't read minds through cyberspace so let me know if you didn't get something that I was supposed to send you and let me know if you did get it by RATING!!! (that was for all you silly non-raters out there)!!

Regarding extras: I will try to put extras in my swaps but if you didn't get any in your package, please don't take it personally. I did get a little behind on some of my swaps so I probably was just trying to get the swap done and mailed!!:D I DO NOT put extras in for hearts so either you want to give me a heart or you don't! I put extras in because I have tons of stuff to share and need to pass along. Please don't feel like you have to send me extras, they will be appreciated but you really don't have to!

Just for the record! I am/was in the Newbie Dotee Doll Swap hosted by @daffodilgirl and I was supposed to send to @bwvalentine but she is partially suspended, hasn't logged on since Nov. 19, and doesn't look like she is coming back. I have contacted the host twice but she has not contacted me back, I was wanting to re-route to the receiving partner of @bwvalentine but, like I said, never heard back from the host! So I am NOT sending the swap to @bwvalentine because I do not want to waste my time or money on someone who is not going to appreciate it! If she decides to come back, then I will send it! :D


Souvenir Fridge Magnets from your country or state. Souvenir snowglobes. Map Postcards

If you can help me out on any or all of these things send me a message and maybe we can set up a swap! :)

Hello Sweetness,

I always see your name and smile. You must have made some kind of brain print on my mind or something. LOL

I wanted to give you a precious gift today.

A Father's Love
