About Me

A lot has changed in my life since first signing up with SwapBot! When I first signed up I was just starting nursing school and looking for any distraction! It didn’t take long for school to take over my life. Sadly I haven't participated in any swaps for years - but now I'm back!!! I am happily done with school and am now working in an Emergency Department, as a nurse ;) I don't feel like my life is any less crazy, but I do have time to do things I enjoy.

I have a TON of fun preparing my swaps and will never flake. I have not had a problem with packages being lost, but please notify me if you feel I haven't swapped correctly or you haven't received your items - I'll happily re-send.

Favorite Music

My music collection has been described as "odd" and "interesting". Just like most people what I listen to depends on my mood (apperently my moods vary greatly!!). I love Pandora, I listen to it almost everyday. I love that I can change my station according to my mood. Interestingly, you are only allowed 100 channels - I have had to delete stations many times in order to make room for new interests! My friends give me a hard time about this ;)

LIkes and Not so much...

My likes and dislikes.......I do prefer quality over quantity. I do lots of paper crafting so anything related to that interests me. -fun papers and interesting papers *vintage *shabby chic *steampunk *hot air balloons *geometric designs *modern floral patterns *typewriters *cameras/photography *blueprints *grungy/textured brick walls *black & white *pages from old books, especially foreign language text *Old music sheets -handmade envelopes -handmade cards -washi tape *black and white *vintage designs *stripes *dots -Vintage ephemera *Tim Holtz *7 Gypsies *tickets of any kind -tags -Old Postage Stamps

Prima Marketing is definitely one of my favorite brands. I love grunge, steampunk & mixed media just as much as layering my trendy Heidi Swapp papers and embellishments.
One of my favorite things about swaps is finding out what things interest other people - so when in doubt, send me something you like!

*Handmade items - I'll take them! I have been crafting for years (I have a serious paper addiction currently!!) and enjoy seeing what others create.

Postcards - I recently went through the collection I have gathered from both swap-bot and postcrossings and honestly forgot how much I love them! I love looking at the different postmarkings, stamps and handwriting styles. I enjoy handmade ones - I have gotten some really cool ones! I will happy to receive "ad" PCs if they are vintage (1970's or older OR international - especially if not written in English language).

Dislikes- Items with strong smells. Perfumes and smoke smells make me feel ill. Religious themed items.

Favorite Movies

I don't watch movies as much as I use too. When I do watch a movie - it is usually a kids movie! I am a mother of 3 - ages 12, 10 & 4. If you have read the tweet about children watching the same movie 100 times you will understand! When I do get to watch movies, I mostly enjoy independents, action, certian sci-fi, and I almost always enjoy football movies (but I don't enjoy watching "real life" football !?!).

Favorite Crafts

My main past times are sewing/quilting, scrapbooking, hobby photograpy, card making, baking, and cooking. As I said earlier, I currently have a (serious) paper addiction. I love just about all of it!! My papers vary from cool steampunk to very modern graphic designs. I am a HUGE fan of Prima marketing and 7 gypsies. I find myself drawn to clean and simple designs, but love making collage cards with lots of distressing (Tim Holtz style).

Comment: Oh my gosh! First off, thank you for the lovely envies. I've been to Southern CA a few times, but not Northern. Would love to visit Northern CA someday. Second, the extras! Sumikko Gurashi! And those Gorjuss girls are just everything! I didn't know they had dies now (where have I been?). Guess what's going on my Christmas wishlist? lol The colors and patterns you chose to make them in are beautiful. They are going straight into my Favorite Things junk journal! Thank you so much for everything! A mountain of hearts for you! :)
