About Me

I'm 36 years old, married with a 4 yr old daughter. I work in a library, drive thru crazy traffic to pick my daughter up, drive thru crazy traffic to get home, have dinner and by the time I get her to bed I pass out at my computer from exhaustion. Then I wake, wash and repeat. I need a change! I want to do fun swaps and get to know different people. I started doing Postcrossing and then I found swap-bot!

Through Swap-bot I learned about ATCs and oh my goodness they are fun to do! I took a lot of art classes in college and 10 years later these ATCs are getting my artistic talents flowing again! They are mini pieces of artwork and I can't get enough of them. I love when I receive drawings and sketches the best but anything creative is nice to receive. I do not like sticker slapped ATCs. I've received 5 so far and the swaps specifically said "no sticker slapping". It made me sad face.

I absolutely love homemade postcards!!! They are so much fun to make and I just love receiving them!

I always rate kindly even if I don't particularly like what you send. But most of the things that I've gotten so far are amazing! If you send me something that is not on my list of likes I don't mind. I think its just fun to get something NICE in the mail besides 'lovely' bills and 'awesome' advertisings. I look forward to checking my mailbox now and its a blessing that we have so many options to swap with here! I love this site!

If I am your partner and you haven't received anything from me please let me know and I will definitely replace whatever was lost in the mail because sometimes, some kinda way, something is bound to get lost in the mail because of unknown reasons. Still mad at USPS for "losing" two boxes I sent to my husband a few years back. Needless to say, none of my insured boxes ever get lost. Moral of the story: Insurance!

Favorite Books

I absolutely love romance YA books. My favorite are: Cloaked, Alienated, Dragons Bait, A Kiss in Time, The Only Alien on the Planet and The Duff

I love YA books because it has innocent love stories without all that nasty smut.

Things I love

I love anime and manga! Inuyasha is still my favorite anime of all time! Other anime that I like are: Sword Art Online, Attack on Titan, Fruits Basket, Toradora, Noragami, Cowboy Beboy, Outlaw Star, Samurai Champloo and The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

I have been to the following anime/comic conventions: OtaKon (3) KatsuKon (3) Comic Con NYC (2) Animazement (4) NekoKon (4) LibrariKon (2)

I absolutely love nature and love to hike. I've hiked thru Cozumel Mexico, Blue Ridge Mountains Max Patch Bald Black Mountain Grandfather Mountain and even part of the Appalachian Trail.

I love all animals but my favorite are:
fox, rabbits, seals, wolves, and dolphins. I love anything with butterflies on it!

I love the mountains and the beach.

I love Disney!

I love all things paranormal and mermaids, dragons and unicorns are my favorite mythical creatures. Any fairy creature is neat!

I love the tv shows Canada/America Border Patrol and the X Files!

Comment: Thank you for the cute ATC for October! Did you draw the person? I wish I could draw. I get an idea in my head but it does not look the same on paper.
Response: Yes I enjoy drawing most of my ATCs. Thanks so much and I'm glad you like it!
