About Me

*Nov. 2011 ~ I am trying to slowly update my my profile. I haven't changed a thing on here since I first joined in 2008. I myself however have gone through many changes, growing and reinventing myself. It's actually kind of fun to look back and see where I was 3 years ago.

First off I like to send my swaps out early so if there ever comes a time you don't receive something from me please let me know right away,before rating,I will replace it.I know I would be disappointed if I didn't receive something I was expecting so I don't want to do that to anyone else.

I'm a mom to two grown boys,17 and 23 and a stepdaughter of 14. My oldest son is in the Airforce.My husband and I have been married for 8 years,he's the best guy ever.I have two dogs that are my buddies.We have koi fish,turtles and a canary. I'd describe myself as being a little bohemian,very simple at heart.I'm an Aquarius and can sometimes be a little eccentric,off-beat.I like original,unusual things not the mass produced.I like to believe in the good in people and always give them the benefit of the doubt.I don't like dishonesty or mean people,I don't think it's right or necessary.

Things I Like

I collect little elephant figurines. I especially like figurines and pictures the Buddha, Ganesh and Quan Yin. I love suns(nothing cartoonish though),the moon. I love the ocean.Nature.Animals.Flowers. I love the goddess Venus and I love, love,love Italy. I love the art of Botticelli,The Birth of Venus,The Three Graces and Primavera.I have a particular affection for his Venus,so very stunning. Things with a bohemian style,gypsies.Ever see the gypsy collection by Giuseppe Armani?Take a look, these are so beautiful,one day I'll own one or two =). Oh and I love unique windchimes,I like to make my own too. My favorite stone is garnet.

Favorite Colors

I like earthy colors, browns,olive,sages,greens.I like deep reds and rich yellows,rust and oranges like the colors you'd find in Tuscany.The deep blue of the ocean.The color of a sunflower.The colors I chose for our wedding were sage and navy,looks good together.

Favorite Crafts

I'm loving these ATC's.This all started because I now have the time to scrapbook,in searching for new and different ideas I found the ATC's and I'm addicted.Also because I'm having so much fun meeting people through this site.I'm trying different types of mixed media,things I'd never thought of using together and I'm having fun experimenting.

Favorite Movies

I love BIG action movies, what I mean by BIG is my favorite of all time is KING KONG,the original and the new.I like Jurassic Park,all of them. I love all the Godfather movies,GoodFellas,Casino,Silence of the Lambs.

*Nov. 2011 ~ I really enjoy watching watching documentaries on Nature and the Earth, Buddhism and The Dalai Lama.

Favorite Music

I grew up in the 70's my all time favorites are The Eagles,Elton John,FleetwoodMac,Heart, Bad Co. and always LOVE the Beatles, all music to sing along to. I love and admire John Lennon. I do enoy a lot of new music too but these are just my old time favorites, they always make me feel good!

Favorite Books

Books on Buddhism. Thich Nhat Hanh is a poet and a teacher and I'm always learning something new from this Zen Master. Looking forward to reading some books by the Dalai Lama too.

Favorite Television

Love to watch Dexter, HomeLand. Criminal Minds. And I'm always up to watching I LOVE LUCY, never get tired of them.

*Nov. 2011 ~ I'm happy to report that I rarely watch television during the day anymore.


Comment: Thank you!!! Have a lovely day and future, hope to hear from you again soon!!
Comment: Pat, thank you so much for the wonderful package, it made me so happy! It was perfectly timed too, it arrived the same day my boyfriend came to visit, so we had an American candy judging together. He really liked the Babe Ruth bar and Jujyfruits, I looved the Reese's peanut butter cups, as I thought I would. Hot Tamales were really interesting, it took a while to get used to them, but once I did I really liked them. Everything else was great too, I haven't tried the macaroni and cheese yet, but I'm excited about that too. Also, I LOVE the key ring, thank you so much! I hope you and your family are doing wonderfully, peace love and owls to you!
Response: i'm so happy you liked your package!!! what a fun thing to do with your boyfriend! this was such a great swap~thanks to you again for reaching out to my request in the forums. peace, pat

Comment: I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!! I'm so glad that you chose the bright blues and greens just for me! {{hugs}} I can't rave enough about this piece! Where did you find the buddha figurine on it? And the mirror bubbles reminds me to look and laugh at myself --that we are all connected. You have no idea how much this means to me. {{hugs}} The charms with the messages of "live, laugh, trust, and imagine" --wow--if you only knew how much I needed to be reminded... Pat, you're the best. =^_^= {{hugs}} blessings, Gypsy
