About Me

1.11.2017 My husband and I recently took over ownership of the business we worked for. This is very exciting for us. Owning our own business is something we've wanted to do for quite a while. After pulling ourselves out of deep financial struggle it's happening!!

I grew up an Army Brat in Germany. Now I live in Columbus, GA USA with my husband and 11 year old son.

There's not much that offends me. I have a bit of an odd sense of humor. If you have something with adult content (profanity, nudity, etc) and you are not sure about sharing it.. share it!!

When hanging out with friends we are usually playing Cards Against Humanity.

I find tattoos sexy.

My grammar is terrible. If you're a grammar nut, reading my profile will probably make you twitch.

My favorite color is purple.

I collect frogs and keys.

As a family we collect Hot Wheels and Geocache from time to time.

We have 2 cats, I keep them away from my swapping and crafting stuff as much as possible.

Favorite Crafts

I like playing with polymer clay and paracord.

I enjoy making and collecting ATCs/APCs, inchies, altered matchboxes. Themes I'd like, if you are looking for inspiration: (but I would love anything you make using your creativity, your eye, your perspective)

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Chimney Sweeps

Steampunk

Zodiac

Purple

I love seeing other people's creativity.

I am always open to new ideas and suggestions on how to improve. I lack the ability to draw, so most projects are cut and paste and stamping.

Favorite Television

Some of my favorite TV shows are Lucifer, Dexter, Lost Girl, Salem, Penny Dreadful, Archer, Haven, Bitten. Schitt's Creek.

Favorite Music

I mainly enjoy Rock. Three Days Grace, In This Moment, Seether, The Pretty Reckless, Halestorm, Linkin Park, Papa Roach are some of my favorites.

Favorite Movies

Some of my favorite movies are Empire Records, The Fifth Element, Constantine, Step Brothers, A Knight's Tale, Super Troopers, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. Age of Adeline.

Favorite Books

I enjoy reading Smut and Supernatural.

Series' I'm currently working on:

Black Dagger Brotherhood- J.R. Ward

Shadow Stalkers- Sylvia Day

Renegade Angels- Sylvia Day

Crossfire- Sylvia Day

The Otherworld- Kelley Armstrong

Beautiful Creatures- Kami Garcia/Margaret Stohl.

Things I like

Trees

Keys

Frogs

Roses

Jack Skellington

Note cards

Colors- shades of purples and blues, black.

Pens and Pencils

Quotes

Fortune cookie fortunes

Clocks

Old maps

Envelopes- Decorated or not, or handmade.

Fun socks- Not toe socks.

Cemeteries

Photographs of castles or their ruins.

Weird stuff

Teas

POSTCARDS

I like any postcards. Touristy or not. Handmade welcomed. I am ok with nudity and profanity. I do prefer PCs sent naked, dated and your city/state/country written on it. If you don't know what to write, send me a quote, something about where you live, something funny that happened during your day, something you consider to be one of your quirks.

FAMILY

My son likes Minecraft, pressed pennies, cars.

My husband likes skulls and dragons, and Guinness beer. Currently looking for items with the Toucan logo.

WISHLIST

This is for wishlist or profile specific swaps. Some things I could use currently are: Note cards, sturdy envelopes (handmade or not) fortune cookie fortunes, printed images or images from magazines, found bits or items (that would fit on ATCs). Items in sets of 3 for ATC Jams.

Things I'd rather not receive

I don't wanna be picky about what I receive, this is all in fun, and I appreciate everything, this is more for profile based swaps/ tags.

Anything with hamsters or guinea pigs.

Christian themed items

Comment: Thank you for the ATC. I guess there aren't too many people in this group that know what Atari fast food is. It's fun, thanks.
