Note: I was apparently an original member. Never did a swap, but here: http://www.swap-bot.com/user:user744 if you have questions about my membership status. Rachel suspended that one so I could use this one, not realizing I had already had one.
I'm 47. I like many types of art, and have gone through phases in life, always creating. Some phases I've been through.
I am not good at painting, so don't worry about finding a picture in there, but I like mixing pretty colors in pretty ways.
I'm fanatically obsessed with.
Other things I like, in no particular order.
As for who I am.
One died of SIDS at age 4 months and 5 days.
I'm from Minnesota born and raised
Part of that is I've started painting.
I mostly stay at home and
Grandkids are the very reason for having kids. They are so awesome!!!
My dad died 3 years ago, and I still miss him every single day of my life, and my ex (children's father) died 2 years ago, and I miss him more and more. I thought time was supposed to heal! I'm patient...
This was going to be a list, but I realized what I'd like to receive is something you put your heart into. If it's a postcard, it can be either something you are super interested in, or something that matches stuff I've written here. Just please no bible verses. I don't like that. If you want to pray for my soul, feel free, just don't tell me about it. :D I have realized that as far as postcards go, I mainly look at the side you have written on. Sometimes I forget to look at the "front" for days. So it's your words that mean the most to me.
ATCs - People here are at all different levels, and as long as I can tell you put your best into it, I love it! I truly love each one best. I mean, think about it. You are sitting down, spending time, sometimes a lot of time, creating a piece of art for me. Of course I love it!
Notecards - Again, as far as what it looks like, whatever floats your boat, or mine. It's your words I care about. Share a piece of you, and I love it.
Letters - The longer, the better, baby. That's all I'm saying. Also, PLEASE legible, because I hate when I try to read it and can't! So if you're writing a really looooong letter and your hand gets tired, set it aside for the next day or something, so I can definitely read it. I'll do the same for you.
Hearts - I have literally not given a heart to one person who I gave a 5, because I could tell no effort had been put in. Otherwise, I always give hearts.
Extras - Welcomed, but not required. I give hearts for people who put effort in. Who am I kidding? I basically give everyone hearts. So I do love when I see extras, but I do not feel "disappointed" when I don't see them. All I want is my swap, and if you are thinking of making it a little extra special, as I mentioned above, tell me a story. Tell me a funny thing that happened today, or a funny kid story everyone who you know IRL is sick of hearing. Even funny pet story. I would love a page or two much more than a few extra things. But I totally appreciate when you do send extra things, too, and I can make use of them. What I'm saying is, I get mail that's not a bill, I'm thrilled with it already!
I sometimes read more than 200 books annually, so I have a list of favorite authors, which includes, first and foremost, Stephen King. Then in no particular order.
Okay, there are so many more. But you get the idea. I like books.
I watch way too much TV. The top three, in the order I became a fan of them, are
And in no particular order
Much to my shame, there are many more. I'll leave it at that, though.
I mostly listen to books and NPR, but in the last couple years, Pandora and I have been working out my fave music. So here's some of my fave artists.
So that, whatever that is called.
I don't watch a lot of movies. But this is a selection of ones I have liked.
