UPDATE: I am running g behind on rating swaps. This is partly due to procrastination and partly because I'm on vacation right now. I will be returning home the evening of Wednesday, July 17. I plan to spend the next couple days catching up on rating swaps.
If you have not received a swap from me and you feel you should have, please PM or email me before rating me down so we can work to resolve the issue.
PET PEEVE: Non-raters - I am owed ratings by quite a few swappers for several different swaps. If you swap with me PLEASE RATE PROMPTLY!
UPDATE: I have recently experienced some major upsets in my life which caused me to get behind on sending out some swaps; thus the 3s and lower rating. All late swaps have now been sent out and I am working on bringing my rating back up. Thank you everyone for your patience and understanding.

I'm a mom of a 20-year-old daughter and a 17-year-old son. They both live at home with me and my mom.
I am a Christian but I am NOT judgmental. It is not my place to judge others because I am far from perfect myself. Please don't feel like you can't swap with me if you are not Christian because I enjoy swapping with everyone.
I am an avid reader and my favorite genres are mysteries, thrillers, Christian fiction, light romance, YA, and adventure
I live in east Texas but am originally from Dallas (30+ years there)
I love to listen to music and enjoy a wide range of musical styles
I enjoy having "family movie night" and try to fit this in at least twice a month
My favorite place is the beach
I love animals and share my home with five cats, two of which are mine
I'm not much of a tea drinker and due to a medical condition I can only have very limited amounts of caffeine at one time which I prefer to consume in the form of chocolate
I have enjoyed crafting since I was a child and my grandmother taught me to make flowers out of tissues. I also like to make things for gifts, i.e., latch hook rug, decorated candles, handcrafted jewelry, shadowbox with memorabilia, dragon eggs and potion bottles, a tutu, wreaths, etc. I have tried my hand at many mediums over the years but didn't really love anything I did. Recently I started playing around with designing my own postcards and bookmarks, dabbling with watercolor painting, and creating paper collages and I am loving it. I think I may have found my niche in papercrafting. It is still relatively new to me but I am having a blast learning about this medium.

DISCLAIMER: This list is not meant to offend anyone. I am not judgmental and I totally believe in self-expression whatever form that may take. These are just my personal feelings and even my own two kids don't totally agree with me about some of these things. I have chosen to share my dislikes (and also my likes) only as a means of helping people learn more about me.
