About Me

I'm a momma of 3 beautiful girls - they are 9, 7, and 5.

I've been married for 13 years, and have an amazing, loving husband.

When I'm not looking after my girls, I'm a sonographer (no, not a typist, but an ultrasound tech). I do enjoy my job and all of the challenges that it presents.

I love playing the piano, listening to music, and all things piano/music related.

What else...hmmm...I LOVE sparkly things, fancy things, smelly things, pretty things...perhaps I'm a bit of a magpie. ;P My favorite colours are blue and purple, I love chocolate, raspberries, and cherries. And candy.

Lately, I've been really drawn to the whole "rockabilly" style of clothing - very cool stuff!

I look forward to participating in a swap with you!

Favorite Music

I LOVE LOVE LOVE country music!!! Tim McGraw is my boyfriend, and when he's busy, you can find me out on the town with Keith Urban. Sugarland is super cool, as well as Lady Antebellum.

I also enjoy some classic rock - who doesn't love Bon Jovi??

My husband is a huge '80's afficionado - some of which I don't mind, but I leave that to him.

Favorite Books

Oh boy. I am an avid reader, particularly of romance novels. Harlequins, historical romance, vampire romance - love 'em all.

But, my two favorite authors are Nora Roberts and Katie McAlister.

Favorite Movies

Again, a huge lover of things romantic AND funny.

Among my favorites, you'll find "The Cutting Edge", "Hitch", "The Blind Side".

Favorite Television

I love Survivor, The Voice, Home Reno shows...haven't been watching a lot of TV lately.

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy doing basic crochet - I'm teaching myself, so I haven't advanced too far, yet.

I like fooling around with origami.

Simple sewing projects are fun.

More likes/dislikes/wish list

LIKES: -music

-things pertaining to music and/or music notes

-pens, especially gel, or "liquid" ink pens, funky colours

-deco tape

-stationery, especially floral/scripty/embossed "pretty" stuff...not huge into kawaii

-glittery stuff

-lip gloss

-nail polish

-smelly stuff


-candys, but no cinnamon flavored stuff or licorice flavored stuff

-bracelets - chunky, vibrant, beaded stuff

-favorite flowers are pansies, tulips, sweet peas, hydrangeas, and gerbera daisies

-double faced satin ribbon

-good recipes!!!

-cookbooks, especially those compiled by your community, church, or school!!

-anything girly for my sweetpeas

Really, I think that I'm easy to please. If you think it's kind of neat and cool, chances are, I will too!



-black licorice

-vanilla scented stuff


-not a huge fan of skulls, but whatever. =)

  • I don't know a lot about kawaii and the whole little collectible japanese bento/amigurimi (sp?) things, so I'm not sure I "dislike" it, but I'm thinking that it's not my most favorite stuff.

  • Please, NOTHING satanic. I'm a Christian and follower of Jesus. Thanks. =)


You know, I was having a really good run on not being flaked on, but lately, it's been pretty pathetic and disheartening.

These are the following swaps that I have been flaked on:

Winterland Whismey Jar - @TheLittlePixieTailor

I Can't But THAT Here - @Nyssa

Christmas Candy From Where You Live In The World - @Nyssa ( I know...TWICE!!!!! grrrr)

New Years Resolution - @tanyacox

I haven't never had the priviledge of being angeled, so if someone would like to angel me, I would be soooo very grateful.

Booooooo to all of the flakers. Shame on you!

Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful (and totally considerate!) package of treats! I really, REALLY appreciate you taking my vegan diet into consideration when choosing items - and I can't wait to try the organic food bar! Hubby will be happy to have Icy Squares to come home to as well. ;) ♥ (Unfortunately, the lollies got destroyed in the post, poor things - gooo Canada Post! >_< I'm sure they still taste good though, so that's ok. ;) ) Wish I could give you more than one heart!

Hi Julie, I was just wondering if my parcel of the "I can't buy THAT here" Swap had arrived? I have you for a Christmas swap as well and obviously want to make sure you get both!

minniemack on Nov 11, 2010:

Hi Julie, thanks so much for all the items you sent me--it really wasn't necessary! Know what I like the best? The teeny tiny maple leaf that I almost didn't see at the bottom of the envy. :-))

ladonnatwinmom on Sep 14, 2010:

I did the same thing the first time so don't feel to bad! LOL!

thehappyhoneybee on Sep 13, 2010:

Hi Julie,

I saw your postings in the forum, and thought I'd invite you to a swap. Not sure if you're into paper crafting, but since you like cake decorating...perhaps you'd like to make. Halloween Cupcake Toppers!

I promise, I am a non-flaky host. ;)
