HiThere

DancingGhost

(This is always a work in progress) UnderConstruction

My name is Kelli and I live in a small town in Northern Nevada. I am loving my time here on SB, even after some drama a few years ago. If anyone has any questions about this, please feel free to message me.


UPDATE 12/27/17 This morning I was diagnosed with diabetes. Please do not send any food/drink items as I may not be able to have them. TIA!

CureDiabetes


UPDATE 10/12/2018 Effective Jan 27, 2019 postage will be going up to $0.55 for a first class stamp. After this date, I am going to have to seriously cut back on my swapping. For those that I routinely swap with, if you would like to become pen pals or email buddies, let me know ♥ I love swapping, but postage is getting to be so much these days that it is really starting to hurt. I had to stop doing international because of the cost

Favorite Crafts

DoCrafts

I am loving learning new crafts. I recently learned how to make envelopes and I can't wait to start using them!

I have a LOT of scrap booking paper. At least 500+ pages. I like to make and decorate things with with stickers, washi and my paper. I have sticker makers so I can make ribbon into stickers. Just bought some Sugar Skull ribbon and it's made for great stickers this year.

I was lucky enough that my husband bought me the Envelope Maker by We R Memory Keepers. I also have the flower maker, but my scrapbook paper is too thin and tears on the seams when folding the flowers :(

During my time away from Swap Bot, I have learned to crochet (sort of) and loom knit. I will say that I prefer loom knitting as it is easier on my hands. I have also attempted to knit, but after the cast on row, I screw it up!

Today (7/2) I am working on the border of a baby blanket. My first crochet order! I am super excited. By the end of the week it will be on it's way to a new home!

I also like to do cross stitch and loom hooking.

If you have links for great tutorials for FBs and such that I can make with all of my paper stuffs, please feel free to PM them to me or post in the comments on my profile. I love to learn new things.

UPDATE I am currently obsessed with journal cards for my crafts. All shapes and sizes. I use them for chunky notebooks, notebook folders, and homemade notecards and envies.

PSSSST In case it wasn't obvious, I LOVE HALLOWEEN! hehehe

Favorite Music

DanceParty

My music taste is pretty eclectic, however I can't listen to metal (chronic migraine sufferer) and I don't like 90% of the rap out there. My current presets on my radio are: '80s hits, '80s & '90s Country, Y2K Country, Frank Sinatra Radio, '90s hits, as well as news stations. (Thank goodness for SiriusXM!)

What I listen to daily depends on my mood and/or feelings. When I need something upbeat, it has to be P!nk! If I need sad I turn to my '80s/'90s break up songs (pop). I have so many playlists on Spotify it isn't funny!

Favorite Books

AnimatedBooks

I own almost all of Mary Higgins Clark's books. The ones I don't own are those released in the last couple of years (finances have not allowed me to feed this addiction).

I also love classics. I am in the process of reading Pride and Prejudice. (I have put this book down because I needed new glasses. I have them now but have yet to attempt reading it yet lol!)

UPDATE 9/24/2018 I have decided to try again with Pride & Prejudice. I have gotten a kick in the pants from a swapper that sent me a PC with a quote from it! I am excited.

Sue Grafton is another author I love. She passed away the other day after a battle with cancer and our alphabet series ends with Y for Yesterday. I believe I have only read to K or L, but I am not sure.

Favorite Movies

FilmStrip

Just like the other sections, my movie taste is pretty eclectic. I love the classics, as well as current movies. I am not into Star Wars/LoTR.

It is hard to pic my "favorite" movie, because there are so many that I love.

  • Gone With The Wind
  • Pretty Woman
  • Steel Magnolias
  • Anything Disney
  • Harry Potter Series
  • The Help
  • The House With The Clock In It's Walls (just saw this, loved it!
  • Selena (Love this movie!)
  • Beaches
  • The Pursuit of Happyness
  • (more to come)

There are so many more. I will be updating this as I go along!

Favorite Television

TVScreens

Again, no set genre, as I like many.

  • Doctor Who
  • Real Housewives of ATL, BH, OC. Not happy with the others.
  • Vanderpump Rules
  • Top Chef (And Last Chance Kitchen, Top Chef Junior)
  • Bar Rescue (Love that Jon Taffer!)
  • Flea Market Flip (Love Lara Spencer!)
  • The Chew (I miss them already!)
  • Master Chef /MC Junior
  • Hell's Kitchen
  • Kitchen Nightmares
  • Grey's Anatomy
  • Shark Tank
  • Married At First Sight
  • Reign
  • LivePD
  • LivePD Presents PDCam
  • Big Brother (my guilty pleasure)
  • Shameless
  • Nightwatch
  • Chopped

    '80s & '90s Sitcoms like:

  • Mama's Family
  • Family Matters
  • Full House (not the reboot)
  • Living Single
  • In Living Color
  • Saved By The Bell
  • Charles in Charge
  • Family Ties
  • 90210 (Original)
  • Melrose Place
  • Fresh Prince of Bel Aire
  • Married with Children, and so on I still catch a lot of 70s-80s shows on Antenna TV.

This list will be updated when my memory kicks in!

Planner

I am currently using The Happy Planner from Michael's. I am loving it! I have added the budgeting pack and I have gotten Appointment stickers. These are the only ones I have so far, but I can't wait to add to it.

I recently picked up the "hole punch" for my 9 ring Happy Planner. I love that I can now customize the planner with pages from my scrapbooking paper.

Comment: The butterflies on a vintage style postcard are great, and I loved learning those butterfly facts. I'm not sure about the last one though since I see butterflies flying in mid-afternoon on our steamy 95+ temps. I wonder how they keep themselves cool enough? Science can be interesting for me, IF it is about biology, etc. Thanks, PeggyO
Response: Yay! Thanks for the ♥

Comment: I love the pretty note card and so many hydrate stickers! I am covered for a while. Thank you so very much <3
Response: Yay! You got it! When I saw on your profile that you were looking for some I thought "Heck, I have a ton!". I have a stamp that is 5 hearts that I stamp twice and I check them off for every bottle I drink. I was doing that before I got the stickers so they were redundant LOL!

Thanks so much for stopping by and posting on my wall. It's very sweet of you to think of me. I've finally got everything settled and am getting ready to head out... So posting a RAK before I go if you want to check it out in the forums.

mylove4craft on Mar 29, 2018:

I just realized I've never seen your responses. Is there somewhere I go to see them or do I have to go to everyone's profiles to see if they've responded??

Thanks for joining Inspiration Station!

LadyGuenevere on May 17, 2016:

Awwww!! You're too sweet!! I am not one to check the dates on the swaps people send out, and I don't think it should cause people stress getting things postmarked on time. (I recently had someone refuse to allow me to make up a 3 rating on a well-written PC that was 3 days late...it is too easy to ruin someone's day, hard work, and reputation here. :( ) Anyhow, your PC was in my mailbox, and it was quite lovely! I'll PM you in the future, as I'd love to do private swaps with you! :) Hugs, *~ Alayna
