Due to LIFE I had to leave swapbot for a while. In that time i have divorced moved from one part of the USA to another and am remarried! Life is good!
I can not wait to get back in the swing of things and have missed you and your creativity very much!
IF FOR ANY REASON u r unhappy with my swap or have concerns PLEASE come to me first so we can work it out and get it resolved asap- i am all about making friends and crafting/swapping with others- if u do not tell me- i can't fix it- hugs--
***i live very remotely and hence i put my items in the mailbox ( our driveway is almost 1/2 mi long- lol ) at night or in the morning and mark item as sent- but i ALWAYS get it out by the due date- now whether our mail lady can get her car up our road or not to the mailbox all depends on the weather lol
i am a former army wife and traveling nurse for traumatic brian injury- lucky enuf to be a mom of 7- meemaw of 9- i have 5 amazing dogs- live on a the border literally on a river that seperates west virginia and kentucky, nestled between 2 mountain tops -and have lived in every state cept hawaii - and spent most of life in europe- am 1st generation america- my house is decorated in prairie country- think from the early 1900's- basic color through out whole house is a light buttery cream- i change my curtains in the house place 4 times a year- lol my kids and family is my life and my soul. my mom lives with me as well as one son.
i love all types of music cept for rap - i am partial to music from the 40's some from the 50's n 60's- 70's can get my feet tapping- country makes me silly- 80's-90's n current are my main genres- jazz and lounge jazz inspire my computer time and classical or new age for sleep- and of course my cranking music is zztop- double trouble stevie vaughn and other groups like them-- i almost always have the radio on and love to sing along to it. granted my singing makes the dogs howl and people in other cars stare- but i don't care-- its fun and makes me happy!
i love to read- autobiographies- periodical novels- fiction and fantasy- the older i get the more i find myself reading romance novels- i don;t know why- but gimme one ( especially a periodical one ) and a bar of candy n i am set! lol
i will watch all types of movies EXCEPT for horror or thrillers- they make me nervous- but i do prefer christmas movies ( my favs are a christmas story its a wonderful life and white christmas ) and i do have a secret favorite----don't laugh but i love movies like the godfather and casino or goodfellows-
am an avid fan of the tv series vikings, blue shield, outsiders and beowolf--- but i also enjoy watching baking with martha or farm house rules or jeopardy- and i LOVE bbc!!!! just depends on my mood-lol
i love to ,make christmas ornies and swapping them- i make them all year long- it makes me happy- i decorate with older more vintage type of decor - and i LOVE santas! ( ok- i am a well known christmas fanatic! ) love to crochet - especially straight stuff- like scarves, afghans, potholders ect- and have never done any sort of stuffed animals or such- i love to bead jewelry and dream catchers- i learned to bead while living in alaska and had a small business up there for that- i can do printed embroidery and have always wanted to learn to do plastic canvas and counted cross stitch- i can not knit n do not wish to learn to do so- lol- i am always learning to try a new craft, esp for holidays- those are the best!!!
i love to bake n cook and can my own food - i make cookies trays at the holidays that weigh about 30 lbs each with normally
about 20 different types of cookies n candies on it all homemade by me and my girls -
i love to bake cakes as well but have no idea on how to decorate them-i prefer to mostly do italian or german baking- lol-
i love chocolate- all kinds- i never turned down a chocolate i didn't like-
i love to swap goodie boxes- seasonal, crafting, cooking, hot beverages, cookies, ect--- its always so much fun to get to know someone and shop for them! i have run for several years different exchanges on yahoo and facebook for past several years with great success-
~~THINGS I LOVE TO COLLECT~~ owls, old time santas, or vintage christmas crafting items, any kid of crystals or stones, gnomes, goddess related items ( including figurines/statues ), norse related items ( pagan of course- lol ), and dragons.
i am pretty easy going and love anything made with effort ( we all have different levels of artistic talents ) BUT i do have dislikes as well--- i am not a sweet fruity scented or a floral flavored type of person ( give me migraines and hurts my tummy bad ) nor am i into people who have "bertha better then you" attitude when you ask them a question or for help- the last time i checked or knew we are ALL students as well as teachers- so if YOU can do a craft or talent and someone asks- TELL them and i WILL do the SAME for when asked- HOW ELSE TO BETTER spread talents and knowledge!!!! i am all for learning a new talent or craft but if i have NEVER done it before and you'd like to surprise and share me with it PLEASE send me not only the patter/info but maybe a small sampling of items needed to complete the craft ( think of it as making a mini survival craft kit!) other then that ASK me and i will tell you if you may be worried about sending me something!
i am NOT a sweet fruity scented or floral flavored person- i can NOT stress that enough- sweet scents give me migraines and floral flavors give me a tummy ache- this does not mean i do not like sweet foods- just the scents in candles, wax melts, perfumes, ect and i do NOT like spicy HOT foods ( no hot peppers or heavy curried foods for me ) other than that i pretty much am willing to try it all!
