About Me

UPDATE 4/9/2016: Holy Moly! Its been a while fellow swappers! To say the least, my life has been up, then down, then back up again...for the time being :) I am working on the swaps I bailed on, i really do feel bad and take completely horrible about leaving people hanging.

UPDATE: sorry I have not been around in the past week or so, I actually got ENGAGED! I am super excited for this new chapter in my life. I am getting back into all of the swaps i am in and if something does not get to you, please let me know. My brain has been a little crazy the last week or so :)

I have always loved to craft, and in the last few years I have found there are so many people like me, all who's have busy lives but love the comfort of crafting. I am excited to open this new chapter of my life and share my creations with others!! Some of my interests include: nature, reading, playing video games, my dog & cat, gardening, fantasy, nerdy/geeky things and any kind of crafting possible.

I am an avid cook, reader and gardener, and I love the idea of the homemade journal to keep recipes, books as well as planting schedules in.

I grew up in the Northwest, moved around a bit when I was younger, then came back to the Northwest when I was in high school. I love, LOVE the rain. I am a cold weather person, I just love that feeling of cozying up with a good book, a cup of coffee and a roaring fire :)

As said above, I am a big time nerd. I love playing video games and everything fantasy. I especially love incorporating my love of all things nerdy into my love of crafting. I am a huge Lord of the Rings Fan, as well as Harry Potter, Star Wars, Hunger Games, Sherlock...oh boy, this list could get long.

On a more personal note, I am a practicing Pagan and love everything about it. Being Pagan, I feel most at ease being in the company of nature, no matter how small. My house is covered with plants and I would not have it any other way.

I also work in the Human Services field, which can be very stressful at times...well most of the time :) Crafting started as a way to get my mid off of work and focus on myself, and boy has it grown into full on LOVE!

With that being said, I love to be outside! Even in the cold weather, unless there is a cozy fire and some coffee :) I enjoy hiking, camping, backpacking, anything that keeps me outside to enjoy the beauty that Mother Nature has to offer.

I am an animal lover, especially cats and dogs. I am the proud owner of a Black Lab, Obi, and a Nebelung, Bella.

I am a Newbie when it comes to swapping, but I have a hunch that I will love it! I am open to pretty much any kind of swap, I love to try new things and will do my best to produce a great swap.

CRAFTING LIKES

~Stamps, rubber & Cling ~Journaling Cards; store bought or hand made ~Images on Cardstock that I can color :) ~Copic Markers ~Stickers, especially ones I can't get at home :) ~Most embellishments, not too big on bling ~I love to alter stuff, so anything that could have the potential to be altered ~Old books, especially ones with maps, pictures and ones in other languages besides English. ~Anything that has to do with nature; being outside, activities outside, pictures of forests, lakes, rivers etc.

FAVORITES

~Colors: Green, Blue & Purple ~Food: Chinese or Pizza ~Drinks: Coffee & Beer ~Movies: Anything Fantasy; Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Star Wars, Star Trek, etc. ~Books: I love to read pretty much anything. The only thing that I just can't get into is historical fiction. ~TV Shows: Big Bang Theory, Criminal Minds, Bones, Modern Family, Castle, The Mentalist, Workaholics, King of the Nerds, NCIS, Rizzoli & Isles, The Office, Supernatural, Grimm, Project Runway, Community

DISLIKES

I will be honest, I am a fan of pretty much anything and everything. But there are a few things that I am just not super into...

Hello Kitty, crazy bling/studded stuff, the color pink, Disney Characters, I don't mind the princesses

I think thats about it! :)

Comment: I have contacted you and not received a response. This was due a month ago and never arrived. Based on your other recent 1's, I suspect it was a flake instead of just a mail issue.

Comment: Awww, Emmy. Got the swap today but alas, The Queen of Hearts does not meet requirements. The swap was for Alice only. Cute ATC, though.
Response: Oh no! I just re-read the description, I totally didn't get the just Alice theme, if you want me to make you another one I would be more than happy to, if not no worries, totally understandable :) I am glad you like it!
