About Me

I am 34, married, with a 1 year old son. I am very involved in my community, and values include higher education, taking care of our aging population, and health related issues. I am traditional yet progressive. I enjoy celebrating women and the advancements we have made over the years. I love monograms (VSV) or (VMV) but not over the top or tacky. They have their place. I have been told I am an old soul, but mostly it is because I enjoy activities that most retired folks do. (That makes me sounds lame, but I am not, I promise) I love fountain pens and pretty ink. I have terrible handwriting. I am a product addict as well as salsa addict. One of my favorite things to do is make a beautiful present and give presents. I sew and recently quilt. I like sweet tart gummy hearts, and sour punch straws, I discovered. I like double sided tape. Favorite colors include a lighter version and a darker version of the same color. purples, lavenders, violets, teals and peaches. I enjoy things related to tea. I love blackflavored teas especially vanilla flavored black tea, rose as well. I have recently bean enjoying oolongs and blueberry flavored teas. I am not a super fan of rooibos or licorice in teas.

Comment: Never received. Will rate if this gets worked out.
Response: Wow, I am so sorry I am just now seeing this and I apologize. Do you still want a bird stamp or id there something else I can do to ammend this? Apparently both did not make it out.
Comment: Hope you get back on sometime soon and sort this out!
Response: What can I do to fix this, I am sorry I did not even see it until now! It's 2017, I had a baby since then, not an excuse just why i took a hiadus. Please tell me do you want a carved bird or something else to remedy this? Let me know I am happy to fix it!

Comment: Thank you so much for the awesome selection of tea! <3 I was so happy that you put a Tulsi-tea there (I already drank it and was such a relaxing moment after a hectic day). I'm really looking forward in tasting the new teas and every one of them sounds absolutely delicious!

pat5036 rated for Hand-Carved Stamp ATC on Dec 8, 2013
Comment: Thanks for the cute seahorse and the extra paper bit. I couldn't read your note very well, so not sure what it said. Glad you are trying ATCs!
Response: I am sorry. I don't have great penmanship and it seems to get worse when my hands cramp. Not sure why they do. I went to a doctor about it and they said it could be a million things. I wish I remembered what it said. Thanks
bacchus716 rated for Six Week Snail Mail Swap #9 on Dec 6, 2013
Comment: Thank you so much, I loved every week! :)
Comment: Thank you for the postcard. I loved your reason number five. Haha! You can use coconut bras, I sadly could not! It would be quite silly for me to wear them! They would kinda dangle off my chest I think. But I too have long long hair, and it just looks awesome underwater! (who's doesn't though?)
Response: The postcard I received was gorgeous and I thought I better stay away from the artistic swaps in the future, I do not have the correct mediums and would not even know how to start or match hers. I am not much of an artist. Well the rest of my body unfortunately matches number five too. It was a super fun swap! I LOVE long hair underwater! Thanks for rating.
