About Me

Hi all! How is everyone out there in swap world?

Let me tell you some things about me!

  • I am learning Spanish and German! I also know some French.

  • I am fascianted by India and the ancient culture there.

  • I recently filed my business license.

  • My favorite color is green. I also like purple, orange, modern & bright fabrics, the combination of white, black and red and the combination of yellow and gray.

  • I collect and recycle aluminum.

  • I am extremely interested in recipes that exclude allergens (ie. something like gluten free) or those that are directed towards specific diets (ie. diabetes, PKU, etc.)

  • I love to penpal. I have been doing it since I was in elementary school.

  • Besides Colorado, I have lived in Virginia, California and France (Paris, to be exact).

  • I have a degree in Nutrition, as well as two others.

  • I can't tie my shoes.

  • I pick up loose change from the ground (pennies only if they are heads up for good luck) and collect it in an old tea tin. I know it's silly. But I have a plan!

  • I am allergic to all flowers. Orchids and lavender are the worst.

  • I love to reuse and repurpose things. I want to learn to sew better so I can do more of this!

  • One of my biggest passions is supporting women and women's rights. I sponsor a women in war torn countries trying to rebuild their lives.

  • One of my biggest pet peeves is when people read over my shoulder.

  • I have one older brother.

  • I recently started food swapping (in person only) which is a lot of fun...and, of course, very tasty!

  • I collect dishes to use in my food photography! Anything plain white or unique is welcome!

If there if anything else you would like to know about me, please, don't hesitate to ask!
