I'm Back!

I said good bye awhile ago. But I've had time to recharge and get my creativity going again. I'm back with so much to do and to experience - art, dance, music, learn something new, go back to school, LIFE!

To all of my wonderful swap partners, thank you, thank you, thank you! You have shared your artistry, your humor and your love of snail mail with me. I give you all a 5 with lots of hearts! I am forever enriched and grateful.

About Me

Classically trained dancer who is now experiencing belly dancing and traditional hula dancing.

Love the theater, symphony and dance recitals. Opera is on my never again list.

Love to take classes to meet new people and learn new things.

Not a tea drinker, from Seattle so am a Starbucks addict.

Am a dog person since I am allergic to cats.

Have tried knitting, needlepoint and crocheting at various times in my life and have failed to master even the basics. All 3 on my never again list.

Love to wander off the main road and discover quaint, quirky places.

Love chocolate, chick flicks that make me cry and/or laugh, books that I can't put down, Christmas and Halloween, music that makes me want to dance.

Love quotes and signs that make me stop and say "Huh..."

Likes & Dislikes

Colors: I like most colors except fluorescent colors and I am definitely not a pink person. My favorite color is red and I love anything that sparkles!

Crafts: I don't knit, crochet, embroider or quilt. I do like to make jewelry, draw, journal. I have found out that creating ATC's is just not my thing which is very sad because I really think they are interesting and very cool. So I will stick to creating postcards and wisdom books. My current obsession is learning how to fuse glass.

If there is a choice between store bought and handmade, feel free to send me a handmade card. I am always interested in someone else's art. Also, please send postcards naked. Thanks!

Not interested in cutesy items like Hello Kitty or the Twilight vampire craze. Also no religious items, please.

Swap Wish List

  • Postcards (art, interesting architecture, seascapes, funky, retro, black & white, vintage)
  • Bookmarks
  • Beads (anything colorful or that sparkles)
  • Paper (decorative, mixed media, patterned, textured and floral, collage)
  • Temporary Tattoos (henna, hearts, angels)
  • Anything to do with dancing

Favorite Quotes & Credo

Anyone who says sunshine brings happiness has never danced in the rain.

Don't cry when the sun is gone, because the tears won't let you see the stars.

go for long walks, indulge in hot baths, question your assumptions, be kind to yourself, live for the moment, loosen up, scream, curse the world, count your blessings, just let go, just be

I was checking out your profile for my Free/Ad Postcard swap and saw that you love my idol Tina Turner!! It's a rare find so I just wanted to let you know that you have exceptional taste ;) Take care!!

stephiedee on Mar 23, 2011:

Thanks for Peculiar PC #2! It is indeed odd. I showed it to my 12-year-old and she just laughed and said, "what in the world?" So, there you have it. Peculiar. :D

judee0624 on Feb 26, 2011:

Do you know you sent 2 cards for 1 PC, 1 Partner - Wings? Thanks!

Hi there, You are my partner for the one postcard-one person (senders choice) swap. I have sent you a post card a few days back, but I don't think it will reach you by the deadline (30th Dec.), because I have mailed it from India (Im spending the holidays here). Hope thats ok.. thanks for your patience and merry xmas! :) x

I enjoyed reading your profile for the comment swap. I wish I had taken danc classes as a child so that I might have a little grace as an adult! Congrats on all your achievements!

Maiju on Sep 2, 2010:

I recognized myself in many of the things you write. I share your love of dancing even though I completely suck at it. I haven't let it stop me though, because I always have so much fun when I dance.

I love many of the movies on your list. Who could resist a movie with Johnny Depp and chocolate? And if a person doesn't like Rocky Horror Picture Show then there must be something horribly wrong with him/her.

I think your profile is very well put together and you come across as someone I'd like to get to know better. Good job!

(Read My Profile and Leave a Nice Comment #2!!, please remember to rate)
