About Me

ABOUT DECEMBER 2014:

I sincerely apologize for the way this Dec turned out. I had no idea that I'd be working as much as I did. As it was, I had to postpone my little girl's birthday party. I worked 7 days a week. I'm not expecting fives. I'm not sure if I can redeem myself from all of this. I'm still sending out the swaps (VERY late). But I'm sending them.

I'm learning Spanish. I'd love Spanish books/reading materials.

I'm learning to sew. I'll love any sewing items that you send!

I love crafts, journaling, geeky things, postcards, deco/washi tape.

I have recently found that I LOVE sticker flakes and kawaii letter sets! I am fairly new to the Kawaii thing, but i really love Sentimental Circus and Zombbit. But other Kawaii is good too. My daughter lives any pink Kawaii things,.especially ones depicting cats or girls.

I run. I love socks.

Also, I love Legos. I have children. I use them as an excuse to buy Legos.

I LOVE writing myths and fairy tales! I'm a dreamer! What can I say?! I like writing long hand in notebooks and journals of all sizes. I find it easier to plan when I can physically write it. Composition books, spiral bound, journals....I love them all. And pens.

I don't just run. I run distances and obstacle courses! I have two kids, boy and girl. I love being a mom, but am out of work at the moment.

Oh. And let's not forget all things beach! We deep sea fish, find and paint shells, and generally play in the sand!

I'm pretty laid back, really.

I think I'm going to decorate my kitchen with owls. So I think owls would be good for me!

Favorite Crafts

Crocheting and art journals! Painting seashells with my daughter!

I also write and do papercrafts. I'll try anything once!

Favorite Movies

And Ghost town.

The Princess Bride

MST3K

I watch musicals when my hubby's not around.... Or when he is around and I'm feeling ignored.

Favorite Books

Anything by Neil Gaiman! I want to write like him!

Also, I love Dragons Love Tacos.

The User Name

I'm a Doctor Who fan!

But leave it to me to misspell Lonely...... I'm spastic like that! (also noticed it right away....just after I had hit accept and accepted that I couldn't change the name after I accepted it....sigh)

Wishlist

Fairy Related objects (my daughter wants to build a fairy house)

Postcards.... Filled out or blank. I have even purchased postcards that had been sent from a local antique store because the letter that the server wrote to his parents was interesting.

Unique Pens (I love sharpies!)

Unique Yarns

Crochet patterns

Crochet hooks (I lose these almost as frequently as I lose socks in the dryer)

Fairy Tale themed objects

Sticker Flakes

Writing Prompts

Alice in Wonderland themed objects

Thumb drives (for writing)

Journals/composition books (I'm not picky, but I do have extra love in my heart for the graph paper journals/composition books....and for the blank ones).

Classical music (I have a special love of cellos and saxophones)

Anything that you think I'd love or is picked out with care.

I'm trying to learn Spanish. I'd love anything in Spanish including books/audiobooks and even prayer cards. (I'm not Catholic, but I do believe in God and I think that the Catholic artwork and prayers are so inspiring).

I also listen to audiobooks as I work. So any audiobooks or copies are amazing as well.

I have a 6 yo girl who is very girly and loves fairies and unicorns and glitter and pink things and world peace. I would love for her to receive mail (including letters from your kids and/or postcards).

I have an 8yo boy who loves building legos and loves marine life and loves superheroes. I would love for him to receive anything (even postcards) from you and/or your kids.

holidays

I love all holidays. I don't necessarily know about all holidays, so tell me about what you celebrate and how. For example, I celebrate Christmas, but love the traditions behind Haunnukah, Yule, and the legends of Krampus (a favorite) and Father Frost. So please teach me about what you celebrate and how!!

Postcards

I love all postcards! I have two kids, so sending me kid postcards is appreciated. We love art (Dali), Superheroes, music, Disney. We love wildlife, maps, and recipes.

We use postcards to learn geography, so even if you don't put a return address on it, it would be great if you could put your city and state (or city and country) on it!

I listen to....

I drive a lot for work. So I listen to audio books. I'm also trying to learn Spanish. Anything involving audio books and/or learning Spanish is appreciated.

Comment: I sent you a message regarding this swap on March 13, which is marked as unread. I hate to rate low, but I really don't have any option - I didn't receive anything from you and I never heard from you. I will be more than happy to change the rating if I receive your journal. I hope things are going okay for you.

Comment: This was a big swap that I was looking forward to. Was very disappointed to be flaked on but still hopeful when I heard you worked for the post office and it was Christmas so you were overworked....you contacted me saying you would send it but never did. Very very disappointing to be flaked on for such a huge swap that spans an entire year

Comment: I did receive squares. They were nice but did not meet the requirements. The squares were to be gray and I received variegated christmas colored squares. Dissappointing as I was looking forward to the squares to complete my afghan. I did sent you a message which has gone unread, even though you had been on-line.

Comment: This package left me puzzled and hence my long delay in rating. You obviously read my profile (why else would anyone wrap a little matchbox in some yarn?) but the preponderance of Michaels bargain bin items, even an unwrapped pad (because I like Halloween?) made it feel less personal and less inspiring than the spirit of the swap required.

Comment: Updated comment: I received these as a resend, and Beverly sent 4 cards to make up for it. I did actually send 2 messages that never got responded to or I would never have had to rate a 1 to begin with but I am glad that you did make up for it and for that and going above and beyond I am giving a heart as well. Thanks!
Response: I've sent stuff to you before, so you know that I'm good for my word (swaps). I'm not sure what happened. I can't imagine that two didn't arrive. I'll send another (I do still have several.) I wish that you had contacted me rather than just rating a one. Everyone else received the cards.

Comment: Great swap. I haven't read the whole diary yet, but love the way you distresses the pages. Great accessories too for the zombie survival kit. Thank you--what fun it was to open this, and more fun to come when I get to spend more time reading it. Susan (brooklynbunch)
Response: I'm so glad that you liked it! I had a lot of fun making it.

Comment: I love the journal and all the decorating! Thanks so much. It's so fun to step into somebody else's life for a bit. Your short stories and poetry made it extra special. PS- I hate my job too and feel the same way. I feel like life is passing me by while I'm at work. *SIGH* If only we were rich! hehe

I have angeled the Write Now group swaps you were in. I hope things are better for you soon.

I received the tag for the I wish for.. Forum in the mail yesterday. I love the journal and the papers to decorate! I was just thinking of making a new Junque journal and receiving the journal just pushes me to start making one! Thanks so much! :D

junemoon on Oct 19, 2014:

Thank you very much for angeling the story and prompts swap. The story confuses me a little as to what you intend but that's interesting.

And er...looks like I can be a little spastic, too. Characters should be character. le sigh.

teli on Feb 18, 2014:

Hehe on the misspelling...but I think it gives your account some characters. XD
