Laughter brings much joy within myself. I am a mother of three: a teenage son, a teenage daughter and a chihuahua who believes she is a princess. My favorite areas of interest are: Art, architecture, amusement parks, arcades, and history. Joking around with my close friends and family is a favorite past time for me. My favorite color is fire engine red and my favorite number is 5. When I scrapbook I love to use earthtones and victorian style printed papers and accessories. Being spontaneous and unpredictable are two of my of many attributes. When I take on a project I am one to put my whole heart and being into it. I am detail oriented and precise in my placements when creating a work of art (ie. scrapbook pages, handmade cards, etc.). I am a Christian and do believe that Jesus Christ is my/our Lord and Savior. God has blessed me in so many ways I couldn't begin to tell you how many.
I love earthtone colors. My favorite is sage green. Salvidor Dali is my favorite artist. His surrealistic works of art and his chosen color schemes thrill my imagination and senses. Beyond Dali my favorite time period in art is the Renaissance period. The realism of the paintings and the deep rich colors are magnificent! I enjoy receiving projects from people who, like myself, put their whole heart and soul into. I believe this gives the project more meaning and often mirrors the person who has created the piece. I enjoy projects reflecting different cultures throughout the world. I prefer a bold point pen. This allows me to freely write in my flamboyant style of handwriting. I love the looks and fun shapes of peeps merchandise but I do not actually eat the peeps candy. Any color is great and I haven't seen a lot of peeps merchandise (ie keyrings, pens, erasers, etc.) so I would love to receive some interresting peeps merchandise!
I love ANY bubble gum machine prizes I can get. I have a fascination with them!
I do not like bright color schemes on projects. When creating a piece of art I prefer subdued colors that create a more serene feeling. I do not like child-like projects. I put a lot of time and effort into mine and expect others to do the same. I do not like fine tip pens. I do not like gel pens.
I am honest and forthright when critiquing of other people's works of art and I expect the same in return. I am a firm believer that constructive crticism only allows us to be stronger in our endeavor to create brilliant works of art. I look forward to many swaps.
If you do not wish to receive things of a religious nature please feel free to let me know. I am a firm believer that God will lead and make known to me those who are interested in receiving the Word. Also, please do not feel that you will offend me with anything you send to me or I receive. Remember I was once there and I can honestly say, "Been there, did that!" It is not for me to pass judgement on any one. All I ask is that I be treated as a regular human being. I look forward to swapping with everyone out there. Don't feel pressured to send me articles of a religious nature unless that is the guidelines for the swap. Thank you
Also, I have been given a hard time by some of the swappers out there and this is not why I joined swap-bot. I joined as a place that I could use as my creative outlet and a placed to IMPROVE my works of art and atistic ability. I appreciate constructive criticism as long as it is not intended to be mean or direspectful. The constructive criticism allows me to improve my art work and artistic ability. Please, if there is a problem there is no reason to be rude about it. I respect others and expect to be treated the same. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
I am a BIG Prison Break fan- Wentworth Miller is the man! ;) I also enjoy true life forensic shows as well as biographical shows about serial killers. I believe that the passion I have for these shows is the fact that I work in an adult male correctional institution. Been there 15-1/2 years. I love the paranormal with Paranormal State being my favorite paranormal television series followed closely by Ghost Adventures. Right now I am really into the Vampire Diaries television series and absolutely love the character Damon in the show. His blue eyes are phenomenal. lol
First and foremost is the Chihuahua! Followed by moose, fruit bats (the giant ones), and girafffes.
Things I would like to revceive other than those listed in my likes: Anything Chihuahua! Scrapbooking supplies and tips on scrapbooking and other crafts. Anything Salvador Dali. Anything decoration wise that is either Mideval or Tuscan (My home is decorated this way.) Wacky ink pens with medium and bold being preferred. Humorous postcards or cards. Literature on local attractions in your state/country. Moose items (ie. key chains, memo pads, etc.) of your choice. Anything that you have created and would like to send- I love to receive other people's art works and to praise the efforts and hard work put into the piece. Anything that you have put your heart and soul into and are proud to send me. There is so much talent out there being taken for granted or have gone unnoticed. I encourage people to do their best and to follow their artistic side no matter what the genre. My daughter is in to the knee high and above the knee cotton socks either gothic or bright colors/designs. My son is into anything Japenese or Japenese Animee. I am sure I will love anything sent as long as it is sent from the heart.
My daughter is 16, her name is Trinity. She is a fun loving teen. Her shoe size is 9-1/2 to 10. She loves bright colors, especially neon colors-but she is not too fond of purple. If it's quirky and fun, it's her. She loves to be the center of attention. My son, Austin, is 18-1/2 years old. He quite, laid back and tries to avoid being the center of attention. He loves all things Gothic, Japenese Animee (He is a Japanese Animee artist) and military. His favorite color is "Too Fast, Too Furious" racing car Bayside blue. He too is a fun loving, easy going person.
