About Me

I'm married and have 1 dog. I'm a teacher. I love to travel.

Please! If you don't receive a swap from me, let me know and I will be happy to re-send. I have found that the USPS cannot be trusted. They even returned to me the entire top inch of an envelope I sent, the rest of which was just lost due to their machine tearing it up.

If you receive something from me with postage due, please tell me and I will reimburse you for it.

Please rate me--I want to know that you received my swap because I DO NOT flake!

Likes / Dislikes

While I like anything that a person is nice enough to send me, I don't particularly care for cartoon-themed items or country/western items.

And please, no friendship books, decos, etc.--I don't swap those.

My favorite color is red, but I like all colors.

Following are some particular likes:

notecards

stationery

washi tape

embellishments such as brads, buttons, wire, stick-on jewels (i.e. bling!), etc.

ribbon, lace, fibers

Favorite Crafts

I'm not an artist by any means, but I love to make greeting cards and other paper crafts like bookmarks. Pinterest has provided me with much inspiration! Thanks to Swap-bot, I've gotten interested in ATCs, inchies, and altered books/notebooks!

I also love to cross-stitch--I guess because I can't draw pretty pictures, I get some satisfaction out of stitching them.

Favorite Books

Currently Reading: 1066 and All That by WC Sellar and RJ Yeatman

Favorite book? I just love books period. If I could make a living by reading, I'd be in heaven! I'm a long time Stephen King fan. I enjoy several different genres, but I tend to lean toward fantasy-- alternate realities, dystopian societies, mythical creatures, etc. I'm not a big fan of westerns or nonfiction, though, especially not self-help. I'm in a book club that meets once a month.

Favorite Music

I like alternative music best. Alanis Morissette, Muse, Florence + the Machine, Hurts, Of Monsters and Men, Mumford and Sons, Sia, etc. But I also like 80's music, some Pop music (but not teen-agery music like Justin Bieber), classical sometimes, some hard rock. I'm not a fan of country music, but there are a few country songs I like.

Favorite Movies

Latest movie watched: Dunkirk, Netflix DVD

I love going to the movies. I just love the dark theater, the big screen, the loud sound, and the popcorn! I always go with my sister and husband. I prefer horror, action/adventure, thriller, mystery, sci-fi, and drama more than comedy and romantic. But I'll go see those as well. I also like foreign films and don't mind reading subtitles. Some of the best movies I've seen are foreign. I like some old movies, but I don't tend to be drawn to those.

Favorite Television

The TV keeps me company. I don't necessarily need to be watching it, but I like having it on. However, I do have several shows that I love.

The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead, Amazing Race, Vikings, NCIS, Big Bang Theory, This is Us, Doctor Who, The Great British Baking Show, and The Graham Norton Show--I know I'm leaving some out, but those are the ones that are on right now that I watch. Some shows that I love that have been or will soon be cancelled are Grimm, Fringe, Psych, Warehouse 13, Alphas, Longmire, Almost Human, Being Human, and Firefly.

Comment: Hi Anita! Thank you so much for the pretty winter card - it was just perfect for this swap (plus reminded me a NC was needed, not a PC - yikes!! LOL!)! I am sure you are looking forward to the semester being over and having some down time from work - I have a week off over the holidays and if cannot get here quick enough!! LOL! Although I aways say I really need December to be two weeks longer so I can get everything done that I NEED to!! Thanks also for the book magnet - love it!! The weather has turned cold and I am so not ready for that!! Hope you also have a good winter! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: I'm so glad you like it! Yes, December does need to be longer! Thanks for the heart!
