I'm almost 30, but feel 20. I'm pretty easy going. I ♥ ♥ ♥ to laugh. I love pen pals and swapping is tons of fun. I try to send my swaps out before the due date, but I manage a company and have a 5 year old daughter with lots of activities so I'm a little late sometimes. However, I always try to send something extra and the later I am the more extras I will throw in!!
Also, I will not rate someone negatively due to being late on a swap to me...only if it never shows up or doesn't meet the requirements. I'd rather have something that someone took their time on than rush and get me something they just grab somewhere. :)
Here are a list of my favorite things in the world: ♥ My daughter Ruby ♥ My husband Sid (he is a chef) ♥ My wonderful and hilarious family ♥ My pets ♥ Art ♥ Passion Flowers ♥ Painting ♥ Photography ♥ Reading (books) ♥ Cemeteries ♥ Pugs ♥ Tattoos (I'm a collector, haha) ♥ Pickles ♥ Sweet Tea ♥ Halloween ♥ Quotes ♥ Daffodis ♥ Comedy ♥ Going to the Zoo ♥ Lilies ♥ Skin Care ♥ Cloud watching and star gazing ♥ Bowling ♥ Baking, ♥ Road Trips

I ♥ to read. I read every night before sleep. It is one of my favorite passtimes. I enjoy all sorts of books.

I ♥ painting using mixed media. I like oils, but do not have the patience to wait for them to dry. I also like scrapbooking, but am not that good at it yet. I have started to make ATC's and they are pretty fun. I ♥ making corner bookmarks. I have pretty good handwriting so I like anything where I can write like making paintings with Quotes or Scrapping Recipe books for swaps.
