About Me

Hi! I'm Selina. I'm married to my high school sweetheart, Ben. I'm the proud mommy of a 5 yr old boy and a 3 yr old girl. We have 1 dog, 1 cat, and a saltwater fishtank with various fishies

I love to read books, play board games & card games, and binge watch entire TV series on Netflix. ;) I joined the site to give me something fun to do in my spare time (Spare time? What's that?!).

Here we are, in Sept 2012:
Family Photo Sep 2012

Random things I like:

Bright colors (my favorite color is purple)
Sparkly/shiny things
Polka-dots & stripes
Any kinds of chocolate
Any kinds of candy - but especially something I can't get in the USA!
Fruity Tic-tacs. NOT the minty ones - but orange (my fav), berry, etc.
Instant drink mixes
Fruity gum
Colored pencils
Colorful permanent markers
Cute or fun notepads

Stuff I'd rather not get:

"dark" things - emo, satanic, gothic, skulls, demons, etc.
Religious items - angels, etc. (unless I am in a specific religious swap)
super cheap things (Dollar store items are OK - but not junk from the dollar store. Make sense?)
mints, other than orange Tic Tacs
strong mint flavored gum
Knick knacks. They just collect dust, which I hate.


(what I pledged)

I pledge to fairly rate every swap I receive. Please be courteous and do the same!

Favorite Music

I love all types of music. Really... anything! The style of music I usually listen to is contemporary Christian, and top 40 stuff.

Favorite Books

My favorite authors are Dean Koontz (mysteries/supsense) & Francine Rivers (Christian fiction & Christian romantic fiction).

I also LOOOVE good children's books. I like wordless books, picture books, and chapter books.
My favorite picture books are ones that have a good message or moral to the story. Not just a bunch of randomness that doesn't mean anything....does that even make sense? lol
My favorite chapter book series are Nancy Drew mysteries, the Boxcar Children, and Narnia.

Favorite Crafts

I Enjoy:
Drawing, coloring, Zentangles, and photography. I also am starting to get into sewing. I took a beginner class at a local sewing shop, and have since made a few small things.

When I was really getting into zentangling, I did the whiteboard in my office when I needed a creative break... here's the first one I did!
Zentangled white board 1

And the next one I did... Zentangled White board 2

I Don't:
Scrapbook, paint, or knit. I also don't currently do any ATC's (other than Zentangles).

Please do not send anything related to crafts involving these items, as I will not have any need for them. If you feel the need to send something extra, pens and coloring utensils are always welcomed. :) Thanks so much!

Favorite Television

I like to watch:
Once Upon A Time
The Voice
Big Brother
Prison Break

Swaps I've Been Flaked On :(

Wow, I can't believe I have to add this section. Up until now, I've only been flaked on a few random electronic swaps, which are easier to brush off. But now I've been flaked on my first Type 3, and it really stinks. :( So, here begins my list of swappers who have flaked on me.

Favorite Candy Swap - Nov/Dec -- Flaked on by darciedamon (account deleted)

Comment: I just realise I had not rated you yet, so sorry! Anyways I wanted to thank you for your candies. I especially liked the mint M&M's which we do not have here, and they taste fabulous! :)
Comment: I love the bag and the fabric you used on the inside. All my totes are currently full, so I definitely needed a new one to tote packages to the post office. I also really like the notebook you included. I'm addicted to journals and notebooks (as well as bags). Thanks for a fantastic swap!

hey! i saw your comment on the candy swap! if you don't get anyone from the UK let me know, and i'll send you some you might want to try :) xo

dalbright on Nov 29, 2012:

Thanks for reading my profile, I loved reading yours! I esp enjoyed your book section (Boxcar books were my favorite growing up...ugh Narnia YES! etc)...Hmm There's a reason why I work in a library I guess. ☺ I'm familiar with Francine Rivers although I've never read anything by her--pretty sure I must try. (0; Lori Wick, Beverly Lewis and a few others have been the extent of my Inspirational Fiction (I disdain Karen Kingsbury - never could get into her books they all seemed the same) ♥ Anyway (rambles!) thanks for stopping by. Happy Thursday!

I enjoyed reading your profile (I am one of your partners for the Say something nice :D on my profile swap!). You have a very beautiful family!

I've always wanted to try Zentangles, but they look so complex! How did you get started on them?

I hope you are having a great week!!

Selina, LOCHLAN IS ADORABLE! (Had to get that out of the way) I enjoyed reading your profile. It's so detailed and I get a good sense of what you'd like. Congrats on getting your teaching degree! I thought about/am thinking about becoming a teacher.Best wishes on getting a position in the fall. I'll be sending good thoughts your way!!

Haha, yeah... I can't wait until I'm completely done with school. I'm happy to be done for now though, I'll be taking some time off until after the baby's born. I would've taken classes this spring, but my due date's the same as finals! Lol. :)

I am due May 19th, and we find out if it's a boy or a girl next week (29th)! I'm pretty stoked about finding out, even though I didn't want to at first. I have some strong feelings it'll be a girl, but I guess we'll see! Did you find out what you were having?

I definitely cannot wait until the holidays next year, I will be so excited for the baby's first... everything. :) I'll probably just sit and cry happy tears while taking pictures of everything. There are some cute ornaments where you make a print of their hand or foot that I want!

[[Okay now for some GAH-ing, someone rated me a 3 and I don't think I can make it better. :(( Booo.]]
