Update: 11/8/2018: Hey there. Don't worry, I am okay, I am just taking a breather for now, as I am focusing on preparing for my very first craft fair! I am super excited and I can't wait! Craft Fair is the 8th of December. I will pick back up after that date. Thank you for understanding ♥♥♥
(This is always a work in progress)
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!
UPDATE 10/12/2018 Effective Jan 27, 2019 postage may 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
(Okay, I have this section for my "quick likes & dislikes" but the sections below this one for more detailed info.)
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
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!)
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.
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.
'80s & '90s Sitcoms like:
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.
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.
