I'm a stay-at-home-mom from Upstate New York with three children, ages 17, 14, and 12. I've been married to the love of my life for almost 17 years. I've written and published a handful of romance novels, but my main focus is on my family.
I love many kinds of music including country, classical, Broadway, and pop. I like 90s music the most and I'm a huge fan of modern musicals like Wicked and Hamilton.
I've loved to read my whole life. I have read the Little House on the Prairie series so many times my first set fell apart. Now that I'm older, I love paranormal, romance, and anything about magic.
My husband and I LOVE to watch movies! My favorites are the Pitch Perfect movies, National Treasure, The Goonies, Rainman, the Indiana Jones movies, the Jurassic Park movies, the Back to the Future trilogy, Clueless, the Harry Potter movies, the Sound of Music, the Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast (animated and live-action), and so many more!
I love to watch TV - probably way more than I should. I'm not into realityTV...except for Big Brother! It's my favorite summer guilty pleasure. I’m a huge Dr. Who fan! I also watch: Game of Thrones, Sweetbitter, The Walking Dead (Jeffrey Dean Morgan ♥), Grey's Anatomy, The 100, The Bold Type, Jeopardy!, Castle Rock, Jack Ryan, Marvel's The Runaways, Orange is the New Black, Outlander (Jamie ♥),Station 19, The Good Doctor, The Good Fight, The Resident, and more! I've just started at the beginning of Doogie Howser, MD, and it brings back memories! I was a big fan of True Blood, The Sopranos, and many other shows I've "loved and lost".
New shoes I’m watching: Manifest, New Amsterdam
The crafts I'm into the most are cardmaking, art journaling, and crocheting, although I will try my hand at any and all things crafty!
I love making pocket letters, ATCs, bookmarks, handmade cards and more!
My favorite colors are teal, bright pink, and royal purple. I love rainbows, dolphins, kittens, and anything sparkly and/or completely adorable! I'm currently on the Keto diet, so I won't list the candy I love because it will just make me drool!
I am a Christian who grew up Catholic, and I am currently attending a Methodist church. I welcome religious-themed swaps and faith/bible verse items. Please no blasphemous phrases, devils, or thing like that. I am fine with most things, including swear words and funny/lewd items as long as they do not take the Lord’s name in vain!
I just love tea and welcome any tea bags from around the world. (in original, sealed packaging, please!)
I also love sequins, washi tape and handmade items like tags, cards, bookmarks, and ATCs. I welcome any stamped images or sentiments I can use in cardmaking.
I’m working on my hand-lettering, and I’d love to have a sample of yours included if you do it, too!
When sending stamped images, book paper and patterned paper are welcome. When sending images on white card stock, please use Copic marker friendly card when possible, as I do use them to color many of my images. Watercolor paper is also welcome with waterproof or pale inks.
I am not a fan of coffee or chocolate (I know, I know!) and I am allergic to apricot and mango. I'm not into anime or anything too gory or creepy. No clowns, please. Grasshoppers completely freak me out, so please don’t include them on anything! Thanks!
Project will be marked as sent once they’ve been placed in the Post Office box. Drop-offs that occur on weekends or after-hours may result in an item being postmarked the next business day.
Early last year I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was signed up for some swaps and tried my best to get them out. I was scrambling to get and keep things together and yet several things fell through the cracks. I was dealing with anxiety and sleeplessness and all the things that come with a cancer diagnosis.
I’m sorry to those who had swaps fall short on them and I hope most of you can look at my track record prior to all of this and judge me mostly by that.
I have another surgery next month, but am finished with chemo and radiation and have been told the cancer is gone!
Here is to new beginnings and the hope that I will be given a second chance on this site.
Much love to everyone.
