Posting this picture as proof of several things: 1 - I am 19 2 - I really AM sick 3 - I've been in the hospital and have had a lack of creative time to make/write anything :(
I miss the bot!! i can't wait to dive back in
I am aware I am partially suspended, I am aware why and it is a quick and easy fix, however to keep myself from swapping during my busy season I am going to keep my account open and await a calmer time in my life to start back up on the bot and to un-suspend it. If you wish to keep in contact with me, please message me. I will miss the bot!!!! But I am doing this for my own good, and don't worry, i'll be writing, crafting, and more in my down time from the bot. Feel free to message me if you have questions etc. 10-6-10
10-6-10: Rest in Peace my dear sweet Rose, you never did make it out of your bud form, but you were beautiful. Happy 1st birthday to my little flower, I love you dearly and hope you and Daddy are happy up their, I await the day that I will see you once more, good bye my baby girl.
I am young, 19 and single though have been engaged and had a child... Rest In Peace my dear Austin and little baby Rose.... I pray I will see you up there one day... You will forever be in my heart.
~~~Due to age and job status being STUDENT please keep in mind that I am not a money flowing machine. I make what I make, save a bit, use half to pay bills, and whatever ends up being left is what I have for that time until I get my next paycheck and the cycle returns~~~
I have always had an interest in Art Cards and began them when I was about 12 years old for my art class in middle school.I have never swapped them through the mail though. I will start out slow and small as I am still in college and spend most of my time working on class work.
I sketch, design tattoos for friends, have the capability of crocheting though need to get back into it to see if I can remeber how to make my little plushies again :) I enjoy taking photographs of just about anything, though I refuse to edit most, there are only a select few that I will edit, other then that, you get my straight photography. I write poetry, song lyrics, and at times short stories, what I write is reflectant of my current mood on that given day. OH! And I'm a GLEEK and proud to be!
Lets see, more random facts! My life has been hard and I am terminally ill.... That may seem just a bit hard to just put out there, but I have come to terms with it and do not let it stop me from my dreams. I will keep fighting until the days I no longer can and I have every intention of stayin around Earth for quite some time.
I am a theatre major who enjoys poetry, photography, sketching, vampires, makeup (I have worked behind stage as a makeup artist), and the like. However, being in stage productions also limits my time. Meaning that, yes I will get my swaps sent out however I will have less time to make swaps through snail mail so I ask that you all please bare with me. I am currently in a production of Fiddler on the Roof Yes, my picture IS me.
You will find that when on a good minded day, I will have much to type. When I do not have much to type is when as my friends say, "Emms needs sugar or we're loosin' her!" I love my friends dearly and without them... Well I would not be here today, who I am, what I am, and thinking as I am. And if you do not like who that being is, well please get over it. I am a human being, I have feelings, I do not like being yelled at because one thing I said was not EXACTLY what you wanted to hear. I can be blunt at times, it is just whom I am.
I spend a lot of time indoors which usually means on my lap top. I am allergic to many things outdoors, so I find it hard to stay outside for too long without the symptoms of an allergy attack arising. I do not have a ton of money fyling around me, thus I will not do pricey trades and would prefer not to send out of the USA - which is a pitty as I love my fellow Brits (I'm an Ameri-brit, born in London and yes, I still have my accent). Majority of my swaps, as a calling card I will place a purple oragami heart somewhere within the envelope, package, email, etc. Yes, I do make them. I spent many a day in high school folding up to 300 hearts at a time then handing them out to friends, placing them in lockers, on lockers, etc.
And well, that seems to be about all I can think of for now in this section. Sorry that I have a lengthy profile, but I like to write when I have the inspiration, plus I am procrastinating from reading 300 pages due tomorrow for my American Literature course at Uni.
Be well, take care, and thank you for your time in reading through this monstrosity, this, spew of words that have landed so upon this page.
**************UPDATE*************** as of today.... 10-4-10 I am apparently partially suspended... but I truley DON'T know why.... :/ is confused
Hmmm... Well lets see I am going to devide this section up into likes and dislikes... I'm too lazy to type it into 2 different boxes lol
Well for starters, Likes:
ALICE IN WONDERLAND AND NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS I AM OBSESSED. no other way to really put that. My purse has the queen of hearts on it, I have earned the nickname queen of hearts, AND the nickname sally. I have my nightmare before christmas VHS next to my TV in my bedroom 24/7. I would love ANYTHING to do with either of these !!
I am obsessed with cupcakes :D My best friend and I made buttons that said cupcake sisters :) I also LOVE drawing them :D mine are cartoony with little faces and expressions
photography and images from different angles especially as ATCs
kawaii omg yes, I LOVE it !! ANYTHING kawaii is adorable !! ESPECAILLY cupcakes...cough....haha
matchboxes !! oh the things are adorable !! sadly though... I do not have any nor can I figure out how to make them... ~sigh~
little trinkets or just tiny little necklaces, bracelets, keychains etc.
buttons, not like the type that hold blouses shut, more like badges or pins with cute pictures, sayings, etc.
little key chains â€“ The word in my profile image is one of my favorite key chains
STUFFED ANIMALS! Sorry, but I love them
Eye makeup and lip gloss, I am obsessed. I love bright, rich colors that really POP and yes, sometimes people call them hooker style, for the simple reason that I love them dark and bright, not little simple soft blues or golds. I have no skin allergies so any brand is fine. My fav's are Urban Decay and Bare Minerals ((grew up with B.M.)) CURRENTLY SEARCHING FOR: ~a pallet of rainbow creme eyeshadows ((especially pink, orange, yellow, and red ^-^))
starbucks mmmmmm..... yum. I go there any chance I get to buy either a venti mocha frap or whatever else looks appealing at that time period
~Garbage. No explanation needed
~snobs, they annoy me and agrivate me
~tea !!! ICK !
~gory movies. sorry, not as bloody a gal as some
~FLAKERS !!!! grrrrr......
~screamo and hard core music. Sorry, but I do NOT like things that hurt my head and that I can't sing a long to
let us see here... Did somebody ask about my music preferences? hmm.... well then ~giggles~ as stated above I am a theatre major and proud to be. But also in being so I am a singer :D I like just about any songs that I can sing or hum along to, which yes does rule out screamo and hard core rock. Just don't feel that I mainly sing things like Carrie Underwood, Evanesence, and then LOTS and lost of show tunes.
Seriously, I enjoy any type of music... If I ever swap playlists you will notice the variety from theatre, to rock, to hip-hop :P
My camera is kind of like my best little digital friend. I love it to death (though the screen just cracked recently) and take it with me anywhere I go. I have had some people say that my photos are on the "obvious" side. Well so be it, I enjoy photography as a stress reliefe and relaxent. I am working on posting some of them up here but haven't figured out how yet ^-^ oh well, if I trade ATCs with you you may just get some in the mail ;)
~~more to come, I am currently writing a 6 page editory about myself that is a pain in the butt giggles~~
~Scrabble tile neckalces, bottle cap necklaces, that sort of thing :) I love them and then necklaces with sayings about love, peace, happiness, etc :)
~I would REALLY love a crocheted/knitted small critter or a cute little cottee doll. I know that these are a bit bigger.... But idk, I'm not expecting much :) I would just love one ^-^
~A CROCHETED/KNITTED PLUSH CUPCAKE WITH SPRINKLES AND A SMILEY FACE :D THAT WOULD BE THE MOST AMAZING SWAP EVER
~ANYTHING Alice in Wondeland, homemade or not it does not matter. My favorite characters are the cheshire cat and the queen of hearts ;)
~badges, the type that comedy central often makes fun of by having the overly happy waiter with suspenders and them SMOTHERING the poor elastic bands. Preferably the smaller round ones, the larger ones create more bulk and are harder to put on things ;)
~of course gift cards are always awesome :P
~kawaii plushies :3
~JOURNALS!!! ---> I am constantly filling them up !!! I prefer a minimum of 5x7 but other then that anything is fine - composition notebooks, fancy notebooks, anything like that. Just PLEASE! NO SPIRAL BOUND NOTEBOOKS! UNLESS the spiral is covered somehow - I always manage to stab myself on them :(
~anything you feel like sending to me after reading through this profile lol
~-Side Note-~ I do not mind any use of profanity whatsoever. Adult theme is fine
This section is just a description of my room as I look around it, just to give you a feel of what I like, what I do, my focuses in the room, etcetera etcetera etcetera, and well, I think you get the idea :)
Upon my lavander shelves are rows upon rows of booke that have been shoved into every nook and crany the shelves have to offer. Upon the top of the shelves I have my alarm clock, laptop (when not in use), and a lava lamp, as well as smaller things like a little wooden puzzel of a kangaroo, small glass animals upon a hand carved wooden leaf, a rather large white ceramic piggy back that my great grandmother gave me when I was a mere 2 years of age. I also have a pink teddy bear propped up around other various "treasures"
I have 2 shelves upon my dresser in the outcove of my wall. They are cluttered, yes, but my room is small and lacks proper housing for majority of the items until I clean my office for proper use. I have a various assortment of soccer, dance, basketball, and softball trophies as well as ribbons from years past of baking contests, the random talent show entry, and just the sort of ribbons that friends give you to brigten up your day and leave you with the whisper of a smile upon your face. I have at all times myblack, square, mini telivision, one of the old ones that I had as a child to watch when not playing with the old VHS player built in that has gone through many years of my childhood, pressing stickers around the screen of it. Next to it you can find my little pac man joy stick plug in so I may play on my television when so driven to do, and my original VHS copies of Alice in Wonderland and the Nightmare Before Christmas. Among the other space on the bottom shelf you can find various books, CDs, lotions, perfumes, trinkets, clothes, and those likes.
Now for the upper of the 2 shelves. Upon this shelf you may find gag gifts, displayed from friends. A puzzle orb that took me a mere 20 minutes to complete, as well as a polk-a-dotted bucket containing random objects from my childhood, one time I reached in and pulled out a pirate Ken head :). There are various hatts and collections displayed across one section of the shelf, and other then generic clutter that is about all there.
My bed is my wonderously warm safe haven, when ever I am in a down mood you may find me curled up underneath my warm green comforter that fades from deep grass green, to the yellow-green crayola would try and trick people into believing was a true green ((pssst, it's really yellow, but don't tell ;) )). I take up a mere 6th of my bed while sleeping, so at any given time you may find heels, clothing, pillows, blankets, plushies, markers, coloured pencils, sketch pad, jewelry, pens, hair brushes, makeup, and well, I think you can get the point ^-^
At the foot of my bed is an eliptical, :P. Beyond that point is a lime green chest that pre-dates my birth containing a random assortment of objects that I fear to open it and find. Upon it is a stack of shoe boxes and clothing as well as NUMEROUS pillows.
Beside the chest I have aqquired a stack of 3 navy blue drawers to place my objects into. The bottom drawer is filled with my memories time spent in Australia. I absolutely adored it there! The middle drawer is more craft supplies and yarns with my crochet hooks :) The top of the 3 drawers my random junk drawer as all people have. You may reicive something from this drawer if you are my partner in any random trades or stuffed envelope style trades. Upon the stack of drawers you will find my favorite birthday gift I have recieved - a hand made pet rock made from a river rock that my friend painted into the face of the Mad Hatter and then preceeded to put orange hair upon it, a gap between the teeth, and a hat with the PROPER fraction tucked inside the band of the top hat. You may also find a globe with little dots of where I have traveled to and an amber geode that I cracked somewhere in North Carolina some years ago.
Well..... that sounds about it I think. If I change my room around, I'll let ya know :P
okay, so this might seem harsh, but see... I do not want someone to go off and try to get these wonderous things, only to be sent to me and I not appreciate them. That being said here are a few objects that I do not wish to recieve:
~random wooden pencils
~TEA AND COFFEE - I do not like tea, nor do I enjoy coffee
~GARBAGE, I mean c'mon now, that is just rude.
~random scraps of paper, I mean things like a full pad of post its etc. is fine but not like I post-it
~holiday themed items - UNLESS YOU HAVE PREVIOUSLY SPOKEN WITH ME ABOUT THEM
I pledge addiction, to the swap-bot,of this earthly internet. And to rate and reply, for all swappers, one rating at a time. Individually, and personally with proper ratings for all.
lol alright, basically what the above is meant to say is that I promise to do the following for all swaps.I promise to: ~NEVER flake unless i have an extremely valid excuse ~always rate and leave a personalized comment ~try my best to give a heart worthy package ~send everything ON TIME ~reply to all rating comments ~be a swap-bot ADDICT!
The following are lists of items that I DO have to trade:
SCRAPBOOKING SUPPLIES - My mother used to own a scrapbooking company and uh, well... I have plastic bins filled with stickers etc. that I can trade :D
Inchies - I love the little sizes ^-^ I can sit and make these in a few minutes, to a few hours depending on what they are of
SILLY BANDZ - I ligitimatley have hundreds of these things, rings and bracelets that I am willing to trade, majority of them having doubles in my collection
for now this is all... as it comes seasons that I have more time to craft, I shall do so, but UNTIL THEN!!!!
Thanks for making your way through my uberly long profile ^-^
ciao, au revior, adios, buenos noches, so long, farewell, alfeterzaine, GOODBYE!!!!!
