About Me

UPDATE:

Since graduating with my MSW in 2014, I have worked as a Counselor at 2 local community colleges and I LOVE my job. I have found the career of my dreams and I am currently working toward completing extra units in coursework related to working with students with disabilities.

My husband and I also bought our first house in Spring 2016 and I've had so much fun decorating and making it feel like home. We live in the desert and are absolutely in love with it. There is no place that I would rather be.

We have 3 adopted kitties (Whiskey, Boris, & Artemis), a pit-bull (Fenway), 2 bearded dragons (Mongore & Spaz), a tortoise (Mortoise), and a savannah monitor (Sketch, aka Bendy Guy).

I haven't had much time to craft, or write letters but I still have all of my supplies and continue to collect things I intend to use when I get back in to crating. Whenever I have a little break from work, I do a little bit of crafting :)


Favorite Crafts

I love crafting and wish I had more free time. I especially love making collage postcards, cards, Decos, and scrapbooking.

I've also tried a few little sewing projects but I don't really know how to sew :(

Oh! I'm trying to keep up with taking photos of my swaps. You can check out previous swaps via my Facebook account or through Photobucket. Check them out if you would like to see the sort of swaps you may be receiving.

PC's

Handmade are always the BEST! But of course I'm happy to receive any sort of postcard ♥

I'm super interested in receiving weird, funky, and different than the norm postcards. Along with handmade postcards, I have mostly tourist-y postcards in my collection. I would like a bit more of a variety.

I love seeing new places, I haven't been out of California too much and have never been out of the country so postcards of fun and funky places are very much appreciated as well.

Wish List

♥ Funky Scrapbook Paper

♥ Thick, heavy weight cardstock

♥ Funky Postcards

♥ Paper Doilies

♥ Neat-Shaped Hole Punches

♥ Stickers - Sayings, words - Animals, especially owls & lizards - frames, borders, embellishments, filigree

♥ Anything with an Owl on it

♥ Scrapbooking materials/items/embellishments

♥ Wild, funky fabrics (preferrably 70's-ish patterns and florals)

♥ books, mostly crime novels, and fictional crime thrillers

♥ Gel Pens

Dislikes

  • Religious stuff

  • Holiday stuff

  • Gorey/Gothic themes

  • Hello Kitty

  • Sloppiness

  • Chamomile teas

On My List to Try...

  • Art/Visual Journal

  • small, funky sewing projects

  • Handmade envelopes to hold embellishments (if anyone has templates, I would appreciate the help!)

...I'm sure there is more but this is all I can think of atm, lol.

Favorite Books

♥ Like Water for Chocolate ♥ Monster of Florence ♥ The 5 People You Meet in Heaven ♥ Rooftops of Tehran ♥ The Lovely Bones ♥ Sickened (memoir) ♥ The Sandalwood Tree ♥ The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo ♥ The Girl Who Played with Fire ♥The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest ♥Asylum ♥The Grotesque

Comment: Thank you for some awesome stuff in a beautifully created envelope! You are so talented!! A note of advice, put the stamps on the outside of the tape...the post office gets a little grumpy if they can’t cancel the stamps. Welcome back to swap-bot!!
Response: I'm so glad you liked everything! Thank you also for the advice! I was afraid the stamps would fall off if I put them on the outside of the tape. I'll put them on the outside from now on. Thank you for the awesome rating and heart! I appreciate it!
