** UPDATE 5/15/12** All WTA's that I needed to send have been sent or will be sent tomorrow! If I still owe you something and you don't get it in a week or so, PLEASE PM me! Thanks for understanding everyone!
** NOTE ** I have several WTAs that need to be sent. I had an unexpected expense come up with my car, and I had to take care of that, but I will be sending all of them out as soon as I can. I will message each person once I've sent theirs. So sorry for the delay :( Also, I will not be joining any swaps this month because of this. Things should be back to normal next month.
I am a single mom of 3 (7 yo, 4yo, 1yo). I love swaps! I learned about this site on another swap-type website. I live in VA (USA) in the middle of nowhere! I often tell people "when you start seeing more cows than people, you're getting close"! I work part time, and starting May 16th I will be a full time student again! When I am at home I love doing fun stuff with my kids (making cards, doing craft projects, coloring, playing games, etc.)
~~~ PLEASE rate when you get a swap package from me! I like to know that things arrive safely and I always like getting constructive criticism as well, so feel free to comment or send me a private message with anything I can improve on! Most of the things I hand make are new to me, so it helps :)
Also, IF you don't receive something from me PLEASE message me before leaving a 1. I ALWAYS send my packages out, so if you don't get it, I will gladly try to track it down or resend it if I need to. I usually send things before the deadline (I hate sending stuff last minute!)
** My home is smoke free and pet free! **
I love lots of music but my radio is usually playing country! I have a huge mix of fave artists which include Miranda Lambert, Jason Aldean, Taylor Swift, Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley, Aerosmith, Eminem, Poison, Lady Antebellum, Cheryl Crow, Alanis Morrisette, Tim McGraw and many more!!!
** I am going to a Miranda Lambert concert for my birthday in June and I am so excited!!!
I like romance books or real-life books. Also biographies/ autobiographies about interesting people! My fave author is Jane Green! I like some murder/mystery books but only if they have a really good story line. Some I have read are kinda cheesy.
I have heard a lot of good things about The Hunger Games series, so I would love to read them!
I am a HUGE movie buff!!! I can't afford to go to the movies so I am usually a little late getting to watch them, but I own tons and am always looking for new ones in the bargain bins at Wal-mart! (or on Amazon) My fave movies are "The Outsiders", "Erin Brokovich", "The Blind Side". I also love kids movies like "Shrek", The entire "Land Before Time" series, "Toy Story 1,2,3", etc. I am also a big fan of musicals!!!! Would love to add to my musical collection!
I was really hoping I would never have to add this section, but sadly, I have to. If you cannot send for some reason (money issues, personal problems, illness, anything- just let me know! I'm a very understanding person.
I won a tote bag giveaway from @driftwood in the 'It's about the tags' group, which I never received :(
