(This is still a work in progress, please understand!)
My name is Kelli and I live in a small town in Northern Nevada. All of our family has followed us up here and they enjoy it as much as we do! It's nice when you are able to raise your kids with the small town attitudes and respect.
I am loving my time here on SB. There was some drama when I first joined (thanks to a sister-in-law using my name). After speaking with the founder, my account became "normal" instead of suspended but it seems that FOPS still lists me in some way, as I have been banned from a couple of swaps. If anyone has any questions about this, please feel free to message me.
UPDATE: 5/24/2016 After having a hearing test done on 5/23, I learned that I need a hearing aid. For over a year I shared the link here for my GFM, however after all that time, I didn't even come up with 10% of my needs, so I removed the link.
UPDATE 11/11/17 I have been away from SB for a while. I am back and looking to get back into swaps. I have a lot of note cards and stickers and postcards and such!
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!
UPDATE 3/30/18 I finally got the results of my 90 day labs.. A1C went from 12.5% in December to 5.8%. I couldn't be happier!
I am loving learning new crafts. I recently learned how to make envelopes and I can't wait to start using them!
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.
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!
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!)
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.
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.
There are so many more. I will be updating this as I go along!
Again, no set genre, as I like many.
This list will be updated when my memory kicks in!
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.
