I'm from the lovely sunshine state CA and I'm DIY gal. I study fashion but more as a hobby since I returned to school in Fall 2014.
June 2015 I recently started a diet this summer cutting out all the junk food and sugar. Everything I drink now is either infused water with fresh fruits or water. I don't use sweeteners either because it's really isn't good for me.
So far my diet is going well and I lost a few pounds since I started but still ways to go to I reach my goal.
I change my major and now focusing on becoming a healthcare professional so I can help with the care of my aging family members.
My nickname is Cloudgurl1986 because I am a dreamer and you can always find me with my head in the clouds or a good book. :)
I got my nickname from an old Disney cartoon called Tails Spin there was a character named Cloudkid but my ROTC air force class called me Cloudgurl instead.
My recent writing style is:
I don't use paper journals for writing
modern college babe
skater/ biker girl (because I'm very active and love the great outdoors)
I love dancing( Tap, Jazz, modern, Swing, Belly, Tango, social dance, shuffling, and what my cousin calls fist pumping for EDM lovers)
Yoga, eco-nut ( because I'm always trying to find ways to save the little bit of wild life living in my backyard. Even thou I live in the city I still get visitors from the forest in my backyard. I have spotted Blue Jays, an owl once in the tree in the backyard were I also seen possums hanging out and during the late summer months raccoons passing through the neighborhood.
I think it's mother nature calling me back to the country life I enjoyed as a kid. By sending me little visitors from the forest now that I'm living in the big city.
My fave colors are:
all shades of blue
I love earth tone colors

I will always try to send something that will bring a smile to my partner face.
I promise to always send on time unless there is a holiday or I'm unable to make it to the post office in time.Or if a major life issue should happen then I may ship late but hopefully it won't happen no time soon.
I will contact the host and my partner if there's a problem on either side.
I will checkup to see if my package or envelope reached you. (Sorry in advance if you don't like being asked about items I sent you but it's the only way I know if you got it or not)
I will add extras if I have something I think you might like or theme related.
I will rate as soon as I received or read your PM/emails.
I will always try to contact my partner for updates on a late swap before leaving a low rating.
I will resend if necessary, but no more than once.
I had a very bad pass experience of resending 4x times and the person claimed to never have received any of all 5 envelopes. I'm still very hurt over this because I spend a lot of time crafting and money on extras for this person. Then I was threaten if I said anything to anyone with a 1 rating. So no more repeats. (Sorry in advance)
Swaps I Angel for:
7 Deadly Sins Monthly swap #1
7 Deadly Sins Monthly swap#3
Today I started back making Aminekos dolls. I had taken a break for sometime now. When I first started I was hooked on them and I was making them for gifts for everyone I knew that loved cats and crochet items.
My first Amineko was Orange cat that I made at the end of 2011. I still take him out and around the city to snap pics of him. As you can see my profile pic is of this Orange kitty hanging out at my workstation May 7, 2015.
