Just Me...

I'm a 29 year old mommy of 4 Kids, 2 dogs, a cat and 3 guppies. Also married to my soul mate and best friend for 3 years(Aug 9th). We have a busy, hectic, crazy, beautiful life & wouldn't want it any other way.

Music is my life...

I LOVE music! Anything but rap, heavy metal/death metal, trance or classical (sometimes I love it) is fine by me. I'm really not picky. Love Bruno Mars, Mumford & Sons, Florence & The Machine, Panic at the Disco, Adele, and the like...

I have found a few new bands from people on here. If there is a band you love and think I should know about, please, by all means, message me! I'm always looking for new tunes :)

Books, books and more books!!

Anything Anne Rice, Stephen King. Yes, I am one of those vampire, werewolf type people. I also love books like 'The Memory Keepers Daughter', 'Life of Pi', 'Water for Elephants' and the 'Fablehaven' series. I read A LOT. I always have a book with me no matter where I go and have finished a whole series in a weeks time. I'm a total book worm!

Movies I like

Ohhh, all time favorite movie ever is 'Top Gun'!! Also love 'Grease', 'Dirty Dancing' and other similar titles.

Nothing to see here...

I'm a 'Gleek' (thanks to hubby). Also love Justified, House, Fringe, Jericho (before it was cancelled).I'm sure there's more...

Stuff I do or would like to do

I try to dabble in a little bit of everything... I make jewelry, make my own postcards, just started making ATC's, trying to get the nerve to make some inchies, same thing with matchboxes, really want to start carving my own stamps, just tried my hand at scrabble tile pendants (have to work on it) I can't crochet or knit (I've tried, many times, and I just don't get it, lol). I will try anything once, or twice.

The Kids

My 9 & 12 year old daughters, Aleksa (Lexi) and Taylor (Tay) love mail as much as I do. I do not mind at all, if a swap partner makes a swap package for them instead of myself or adds a few things for them also. I know they would love it.

Taylor's favorites include: Colors: Any color, but really loves purple, black & blue. Animals: Tigers. Everything else: She is really into the self discovery stage. She loves to color her shoes with Sharpies, LOVES to make really cool things out of Duct Tape (she only has silver & would love other colors), loves nail polish and any other beauty products (besides make-up, it's not allowed yet). She loves alternative music (My Chemical Romance is her fave!), Volleyball, making jewelry and writing, both in a journal and short stories. She is going to be taking a class course for Theatrical Make-up in October.

Lexi's favorites include: Colors- Black, White & Blue, Animal-white Tigers, Nail polish, pretty hair things, earrings(simple ones and she has a pretty severe nickle allergy), basketball, gymnastics. She is the girliest tomboy, besides myself that I have ever known. She will wear a skirt, but only over jeans or capris.

Then there is 4 year old Kyrie, who is a lot like her older sister. No tomboy in this one though. She is all girly girl! Loves princesses, fairies, rainbows, Strawberry Shortcake, Care Bears, Pinky Dinky Doo, ballet, elephants, stickers and all things girl.

I also have a 3 year old boy, Gabriel, who is your a typical boy :) He loves Cars, firefighters, monkeys, Gumby, Blues Clues, Super Why, Fishtronauts, the Chic-fil-A cow (cows in general), stickers and suckers/lollipops.

Things I love!!

Horses, koi, otters, lions, Pocoyo(LOVE,LOVE!!), Word World, bright colors (think rainbow, not neon), rubber stamps (hand carved especially), charms, miniature anything, anything to do with Ireland, England, Paris or Bora Bora (or any tropical paradise really), odd or unusual postcards (the more peculiar, the better), love astrology(I'm a Leo), bookmarks(I'm a total book worm), I'm a big Dallas Cowboys fan, would love candy from other countries or just plain unusual candy, anything with music notes, colorful nail polish, colorful ankle socks size 8 US(I often wear mismatched ones ;), anything ballet, hibiscus, sunflower and gladiolus flowers, chai tea, firefighter related things(was one for 2 years), Día de los Muertos related items.

I enjoy anything handmade by other crafters. If it's made with care and love, I'll love it, no matter the medium :)

Allergies, allergens, dislikes

I have no allergies that are bad enough to worry over. The only thing I dislike is Anime. Just not my thing :) Please, for the sake of my kids and I, do not send anything with nudity. That's it. Pretty easy stuff, lol!

We have animals in the house so an occasional hair may sneak in there. I try not to let it, but sometimes it happens.

I also smoke, but not inside the house. I still worry about the packages though, so I thought I'd put it here just in case.

These are just a couple of things to keep in mind if you have really bad allergies.

Hi! Wel it isn't difficult to crochet but you're not the only one who can't do it ;-) I learned it when I was about 12 years and now I'm loving it so I can make amigurumi. I'm very busy at the moment (have to make a lot amigurumi for friends too) but if you like, I will make one for you ;-) But it's gonna take time ;-)

My boyfriends family was a bit obsessed with Glee and I moaned and groaned one night when they DVR'd it... Now, I own season one on DVD, watch it constantly, blast one of the CDs all the time, and have even been to a Glee concert haha. It's so addictive!
