About Me

Hi, I'm Cari. I'm a Biology teacher and an independent demonstrator for Stampin' Up.. I have two fur babies (dogs) Iris and Cinnamon. I found out about Swap-Bot through some friends that I scrapbook with.

I had some big changes over the past year with a Hysterectomy followed by Chemotherapy & Radiation to cure Uterine Cancer; a divorce, followed by the purchase of a new house. It's been crazy. I haven't really been very active on Swap-Bot as of late because all of my craft stuff is still in boxes. I'm in the middle of remodeling my craftroom. Hopefully it will be completed soon!

Favorite Books

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.

Favorite Television

NCIS & NCIS Los Angeles, SVU, Doctor Who, The Game of Thrones, and Sleepy Hallow. I also started watching God Friended me. I like the positive vibe it puts out. So many other TV shows are always dramatizing the negative.

Favorite Movies

Labyrinth, Legend, Empire Strikes Back, Lord of the Rings Trilogy; Harry Potter Series; X-men; any of the Avenger's movies; Hook;

Favorite Crafts

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.

Odds & Ends

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.

Dislikes

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!

Hearts

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.

Flakers

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.

Hello! You ask for private swaps and pen pal swaps in a comment under the international pan pal swap I joined. I’m also looking for new pen pals and would like to join a private swap with you. Let me know if you want to set up a swap. Best wishes, Katti
