About Me

In my last profile, being completely new to the swap-bot concept, I told you all about my life. If you read it, you knew that I was a mom who worked with preschool aged children and asked that you not stop by my house. Sounds kind of bizarre, huh? Well, yeah….. it was.

Now that I am swap-bot baptized, I thought I would try this profile thing again. (Don’t know what swap-bot baptized means? Neither do I exactly, but I think it means one has participated in a variety of different swaps, not received things, received great things, missed out on ratings, and generally has her sea legs on.) But back to the profile piece: I am going to stay focused and tell you more about my talents than my endearing personality. Here goes!

I enjoy creating personal things and I typically go overboard. You can expect great things from me! If it says to send 15 pictures, I stress about not being able to send the 60 I have picked out and then end up sending 70 in a professionally published book. If it says pick something up from the dollar store based on your partner's profile, I scour the shelves only to leave with objects that I will paint to your specifications and then assemble into something useful. If it says to write one story, you may receive two just because it was so much fun the first time.

With that in mind, please let me know if you don’t receive something shortly after I have sent it out. I am more than happy to resend! Also, because I work hard to please you, I apprecite it when you leave me feedback. I love the ratings, but I prefer your comments!

My favorite swaps involve: writing, photography, postcards, dollar stores, and occasional sewing. I am game for just about anything though.

I am also open to private swaps/ group swaps. Send me a message and let me know if there is something you want to try. And look for my swaps sometime in the near future. My list of ideas is growing fast and I may drown in them if I don’t put some out there soon!

My Likes

  • Things with my kid's names (Alexander-- Alex, Xander-- and Eva-- Evalynn)
  • Anything Hollywood Regency
  • Think Ballroom Dance (sparkly shoes, costume jewelry, keychains with appropriate emblems or sayings, etc)
  • Letters
  • Books/ Music
  • Cards/ Stationary
  • Things with the old or new Pepsi symbols
  • Jewelry (stone, bead, sparkely, etc)
  • Craft projects for me or my kids
  • Artwork/ photographs
  • Really, just about anything 'homemade'
  • Love bright colors or deep tones

Favorite Music/ Books/ Movies

I love just about anything concerning music! I've even started to warm up to the newer country music (but please don't tell my husband because he would FREAK out!)

Let's see how many genres I can list:

Classical Classic Rock Classic Punk Cajun Alternative 80's/ 90's/00's African Celtic Bluegrass A Capella Hip Hop Latin Rock and Pop Oldies

And so on...... I think you get the idea! And please, no William Hung. I've received a couple of copies as gag gifts.

Books? I don't think I could possibly make a list. I like fiction mostly, even sci-fi. But I read anything! Look at it like this, my kids have at least 250 books and they are 5 and under.

I guess that leaves movies. To be honest, I see relatively few movies. Have you picked up on the fact that I have two young kids, school, dance lessons, and I write? Yeah. I thought so. Maybe in a few years I will have a better answer for this.

Comment: This must have been very emotional for you to write. I know it was for me to read. Thank you for sharing. I thought the way you told it worked very well. It made me feel that I was seeing the events from a little child's eyes. Easy for me to know what's going on, but knowing how confusing it must have been for a child. Good writing!

Comment: This sparked a writing day of more than 4,000 words during NaNoWriMo! Thank you so very much!
Response: That is amazing! All those words in one day. Congratulations! Perhaps I'll get to see a small excerpt of that?

Comment: oooh drooool...! These are GORgeous! I have been in a few state capitol buildings and they are always so incredibly beautiful just dripping with details. My heart is beating a bit faster just looking at your images...how much joy stunning architecture brings me! THANK YOU for sharing-it makes me want to go there! Just lovely! Happy swapping & ahooting!
Response: If you do ever find yourself in the area, you should seriously consider visiting the capitol. It is open to the public (no metal detectors, etc) and they offer free tours to educate about the actual creation of the building and it gives you the ability to go into the Supreme Court, Senate, and House as well as conference rooms.

Although we just met thanks to the photo swap...we have a LOT in common. You are my kind of people. I look forward to seeing you in other swaps as well. From one pre-wall lady to another...our time over in this area rocks!

Hi Heather, received the notebook - looks great, looking forward to our continued correspondence with the book! Have a great weekend! Robyn

AmericanHeiress on Jul 1, 2010:

Hi Kitty,

I would love to swap notebooks. Would you like to start or me? Whichever you choose.


AmericanHeiress on Jun 16, 2010:

OMG!!! We are in the same swap and I hope we are partners. I read your profile and I totally chuckled out loud regarding your parenting skills. LOVE IT. I am not a mom, but if I was I would totally describe it like you would. I love everything that sparkles and am a die hard fan of Hollywood Regency!!!! See you around on the bot.
