Hi, I'm Cari. I'm a Biology teacher and an independent demonstrator for Stampin' Up. I've been happily married for close to 15 years. I have two fur babies (dogs) and one snake. I found out about Swap-Bot through some friends that I scrapbook with.
******updated as of 11/5/17***** Moved into a new town house the 1St of october. Had a total hysterectomy to remove the cancer. But.....normalization is not happening. Went back for post opportunity on Oct 21, and found out that I have to undergo chemo & radiation. This was unexpected and even surprised my doctor. However, he said it is a curative chemo, so that is positive. I had my port put in on Friday. It hurts worse than my hysterectomy did. Chemo starts this Friday 11/10/17.
*****updated as of 9/17/17***** On top of filing for divorce, having to move out of my rental by the end of the month, and being diagnosed with Uterine Cancer; a Nor'Easter followed by Hurricane Irma hit Jacksonville, FL and wreck havoc on everything. Major flooding, power outages, trees down, etc. The city has been completely shut down for a minimum of 3 days. Grocery stores are out of just about everything. This is by far the worst hit Jacksonville has taken by a hurricane. Needless to say Swap-Bot has been the furthest concern from my mind the past two weeks. Right now I'm finishing up a Swap that was suppose to be mailed out on the 13th. From here on out - till things start to normalize - I will only be working on the Wings & Things APC Deck.
The Hobbit, The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini, A Song of Ice and Fire Series by George R.R. Martin; All of the Jack Reacher Novels by Lee Child. I am a huge fan of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child's books whether they are stand alone, series, co-written or individual. They're cowritten books include Relic, Dance of Death, Gideon's Sword.
I do not like Romance Novels....However my friend has me reading Suzanne Brockmann's Troubleshooters.
Doctor Who, The Game of Thrones, The Flash, and Sleepy Hallow.
Labyrinth, Legend, Empire Strikes Back, Lord of the Rings Trilogy; Harry Potter Series; X-men; any of the Avenger's movies; Hook;
Although I've dabbled around in all types of crafting, I especially enjoy anything to do with paper-crafting: Scrapbooking, Cards, 3D paper projects, and I've just recently started to get my feet wet in the mixed media world.
I became a certified to teach Intermediate Copic classes in February 2017. Here it is November 2017 and haven'the really done what I set out to do with that certification. I think I'm going to use my time in chemo to start setting up a monthly class for a local Stamp Studio, and quite possible an art store.
My favorite color is Purple. I'm really starting to get into designs that involve Steampunk and metal especially wrought iron. I love nature including dragonflies and butterflies. I also like to take pictures.
I do not like Romance Novels. I am not religious in the least bit, but don't take it the wrong way. I am a very spiritual person.
Taped Envelopes!!! Please don't send me envelopes where not only is it sealed with washi tape, but every edge is also washied!!! I admit that they are very pretty, but it's almost impossible to open these envelopes without tearing the contents. I find it extremely annoying!
Sticker Slapping - especially on ATC. A stands for artist. I take that seriously. Stickers are okay as an accent, but it is suppose to be ART!
According to Swap-bot, Hearts were never meant for EXTRAS, so please DO NOT SEND EXTRAS.I do not need any more STUFF. I have also stopped adding extras to my swaps unless they are related to the swap itself.
I give hearts for work that 1) looks like you put a little extra effort into it; 2) it was obvious you read my profile; 3) I find it to my liking.
I have banned the following from my swaps for flaking:
@Violethare - sorry but I don't think the post office would lose ALL those letters or packages. If so, I'd report them for mail fraud.
