I am a loud 26-year-old redhead who loves to make life fun for myself and others. I try to be creative but am not always successful. I'm very fond of St. Patrick's day as it is close to my birthday. I love getting homemade items. I am a serial candle buyer. I just can't help myself. I'm a yard sale fanatic! Can't pass up a bargain. There are no commercial craft stores or a Target where I live, which is very disappointing. I have to drive 100 miles to get to the nearest ones! I love the the dollar item sections in those stores. I love all $1 stores as well. In fact, they are probably my favorite place to shop- after yard sales of course. However, I'm not a fan of thrift stores. I don't have any pets and don't particularly want any. I'm not a smoker. I love getting mail! I work at an academic libray though I am not a librarian. Don't have the degree it takes and don't want to go back to school right now. I value a close relationship with my family. I prefer winter to summer, but really love the fall. Oh, yeah...and in case you can't tell from my name (it's deceptive) and profile, I'm a girl.
I will try almost any craft once. I LOVE all paper crafts- scrapbooking, card-making, stamping, embossing (heat & dry), etc. I have tried my hand at ATCs and have been very pleased with the few I have created. I haven't been cranking them out though. I think inchies are a bit too small for me. I tried them once and had difficulty with the small size. Maybe I'll try again later. I love lots of stationery items as well. Anything from post-its to colored paper clips to colored pens. I can always use lettter sets and notecards. I like to read- especially Nicholas Sparks. I also enjoy non-fiction and historical fiction. I am curently in 2 books clubs- 1 serious, 1 fun. I enjoy cooking- especially baking. Sugar cookies are my favorite to make b/c they can be decorated in so many ways and decorating is always the best part. I also enjoy good old home-cooked comfort foods. Not a lot of ingredients please. No gourmet for me. I live in a rural area so shopping for exotic spices and such is difficult.
I don't like coffee or coffee scented items. Also, not a fan of musk scents. Please don't send me food items unless I specifically sign up for a food swap. Even then, I prefer milk chocolate to dark. I hate herbal teas! I can't stand buttered popcorn. I do like caramel or kettle corn. Please don't send religious items. No toe-socks please. Or tall socks. Socks crew length and shorter are fine. I don't do traditional picture puzzles. I hate page-a-day calendars. Aside from these things, there's really not much I don't like. I'm pretty easy to please. That doesn't mean I won't be disappointed if you skimp on a swap.
I have pierced ears. I have a very weird sense of humor. I like tote bags. I collect pjs and fuzzy socks (shoe size 7). I have one younger brother (younger by 20 mos). I have a great relationship with my mother. She is my best friend. I am single w/o children. I love to pamper myself. I don't need expensive salon treatments. I'm content to give myself a manicure, pedicure, facial, etc. I don't have a computer at home. I use the one at work. I don't have any food allergies that I know of. I cannot eat spicy hot foods. I eat meat and prefer poultry, then beef, then pork. I don't eat fish/seafood. I like licorice. Not twizzlers type but black jelly beans and such are fine. I watch a lot of movies b/c I won't pay for cable.

-- I'm cleaning this up a bit. A big "Thanks" to those who have sent something special from this list.
-- Stampin' Up, Creative Memories, Close to My Heart, The Angel Company, and other Catalog/Idea Books or Paper Craft Magazines from the past 2 years.
-- A VHS or DVD movie you no longer want.
-- Postage- Anywhere from 1 unused stamp to as many as you want to send would be much-appreciated.
I really hate to have to use the "F" word on swap-bot, but they made me do it. FLAKERS!! Here are the people who flaked on me and links to the swaps they flaked on. These could also be considered "things I would love to receive"...finally!

seymourgranny for Memo Pad Swap
A note about postage due: If I have to pay postage due on a swap, I will rate a 3. If you're not sure how much postage will be required for an envelope or package, either go to the PO or attach an extra stamp. I will pay postage due rather than send the swap back and I will rate a 3 if I have to pay for my swap. (2/18/10)
A note about how I rate: I feel that it is the responsibility of the SENDER to mail a swap within the allotted time frame and it is the RECIPIENTS responsibility to rate what they receive accordingly. I will always rate just as soon as I possibly can. Please feel free to contact me if I have not rated you for a swap or if you have not received a swap from me.
