About Me

Hello everyone, I know I have been away forever! Life has finally settled down and things are looking better for us. I am finally to a point where I can begin swapping and crafting again. I will be fixing my forgotten swaps up this weekend and slowly easing my way back into things. I hope to reacqaint myself with old friends and make some new ones as well...PLUS I am excited to see what is new in the swapping world :)

UPDATE: 7-3-09

I am sorry I have been unaccounted for the last month. I have been dealing with some very traumatic things. Some of you may remember last fall we had some serious problems with our son Jordan. He tried to kill himself. He tried again at the beginning of June. I stopped him but not before he hurt himself and me both physically and emotionally. He is currently hospitalized. I have moved in with a friend to be closer to the hospital where he is . He is making some really good progress and may be coming home soon. I have been unable to send swaps since I have no access to my things plus we have no extra money atm. I will try to get back here as soon as I am back home and catch up on things. I simply can't deal with anything but getting him better right now. I am sorry to anyone I owe anything to.


I enjoy hiking, camping,and being out of doors. I am a Girl Scout Troop leader and a boy scout parent volunteer. I love online dolling and pixeling, reading, sci-fi, and fantasy of all kinds. I follow a nature based religious path though I do not subscribe to any group "path" and am strictly solitary.

My favorite colors are: green, purple, black

I don't wear a lot of jewelry but what I do wear is usually silver.

Things I would like to receive:

Small low-temp glue guns for my girl scout troop. I am down to 1 working and 1 sometimes working glue guns for the entire troop and really need a few more. Also glue sticks-especially the colored or glitter ones-they love making crafts with those.

BOXTOPS FOR EDUCATION-my daughter is collecting them for her school. They need new computers

Craft kits-for my girlscouts

acid free pens or gel pens

Anything with dragons

Mortar and pestles

anything for altars-altar cloths, God/Goddess figures or pictures, pentacle, censor etc.

Boy Scout and Girl Scout patches/badges- All 3 of my kids are in scouts and collect patches for their patch blankets.

Any copy of THIS BOOK -It was my favorite as a child and I want to pass a copy on to each of my children.

Anything Handmade by You for Me

Pocky my kids and I recently found chocolate pocky and really like it. I would love to try any other flavors as chocolate is the only kind I can get. Please no Milk flavored. We got some but the kids did not like it. They do however love the strawberry :)

Matchboxes-I have recently discovered these and love them. I would love to receive any type of filled matchboxes or supplies to make and fill matchboxes.

I can ALWAYS use large safety pins for girl scout swaps so I would be thrilled to get some extra ones :)

Favorite Crafts

I love making nature crafts, crocheting, remaking dolls, scrapbooking, girl scout SWAPS, painting and drawing, and candlemaking. I also enjoy sewing by hand especially Dolls and sock monkeys.

Favorite Music

I enjoy Celtic music and meditation mostly. I would love to have some good guided meditation CD's but haven't found any I can afford yet. I love Enya. I also like pagan artist like Spiral rythym, Heather Jimmaku and Inkubus Sukkabus and Shamanic drumming or flute music.

Favorite Television

I used to watch a lot of Sci fi shows like Farscape, Star Trek enterprise, Andromeda, Doctor Who but most of them have been cancelled. I enjoy reality shows Like Nanny 911, Hoarders, Clean house and just about every HGTV decorating show there is.

Favorite Movies

I love the old musicals like Sound of Music, The King and I, Seven brides for seven brothers etc. Also the old Disney movies like Mary Poppins and Bedknobs and broomsticks. I also love fantasy movies like Lord of the rings, harry potter, narnia etc

My kiddos

As mentioned before I have kids. My oldest son is 19. My 2nd son is 17 and my baby girl is 13. If you can't find anything to send me for a swap you can ALWAYS send something for them and I will be happy.

They all collect scout patches from boy scouts and girl scouts especially Council Patches.

Donovan 19- loves anything to do with wolves, saxophones, and native american items. His favorite color is blue. He likes classic rock like from the 80's early 90's. He would love to receive cd's of Poison, warrant, van halen music--burned ones are fine. He loves art and drawing.


He likes owls, eagles, and native american items-especially drums. His favorite color is green. He is addicted to gum and would love to receive some-especially unusual types. He has recently become addicted to rubics cubes and other puzzle games like it.

Devan-13 She loves making crafts especially jewelry and is addicted to bangles and beads. She loves teddy bears and her nintendo DS and WII. She loves earrings and purses also and OWLS...anything with owls.

My furbabies: We have 5 dogs and 3 cats. We go through balls, chew toys and cat toys like crazy lol

a couple don't likes

Just thought I would add a few of my don't likes. However, don't be too concerned if you send these items-I will however reswap them or give to them friends.

things with very STRONG odors or scents
reward type stickers-unless they are girl scout specific
images of artistic nudity

Comment: Thanks for all the stuff, I like your "opposite" descriptions the best. The sticky opposite was good, I have a 2-year-old and everything ends up sticky which I don't care for:o) I will think of the notebook as I clean my walls, car, clothes, dogs, ect.
