May 19, 2019 I have not been online in a few days and I am behind on sending out some swaps because I had to drop everything to care for my elderly (81 year old) dad. I sincerely apologize to everyone I owe a swap to and promise to get caught up ASAP. My plan is to have everything in the mail by Tuesday, May 21, at the latest.
UPDATE: I have recently experienced some major upsets in my life which caused me to get behind on sending out some swaps; thus the lower rating. All late swaps have now been sent out. If you have not received a swap from me and you feel you should have by now, please PM or email me before rating me down so we can work to resolve the issue.
Thank you everyone for your patience and understanding.

I'm a mom of a 20-year-old daughter (wow that seems so strange to me still) and a 16-year-old son
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.
I will continue to update my profile as I think of more things to add/revise about myself

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.
