About Me

I've always been an artistic person. I took a lot of art classes in college and 10 years later these swaps are getting my artistic talents flowing again!

I love making art journals and gluebooks. I enjoy sketching, painting and collaging. I also love collecting other peoples sketches or drawings as well.

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

I also enjoy writing and participate in NanoWriMo yearly. Thanks to this challenge, I managed to write several books.

I always rate kindly even if I don't particularly like what you send. But most of the things that I've gotten 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 in the mail besides bills and 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!

Favorite Books

I absolutely love romance books. My favorites are: The Viscount Who Loved Me Today, Tonight and Tomorrow A Court of Thorns and Roses The Faerie Guardian Series The Alder Tales Series Cloaked Alienated Dragons Bait A Kiss in Time The Only Alien on the Planet and The Duff Get a Life, Eve Brown

Things I love

POSTCARDS: I use postcards in my journals. I love unique postcards, anime, unicorns, dragons, fairylike creatures, mermaids, Pretty, floral, funny postcards, colorful, romantic. and quotes. Honestly any card would be fine BUT.... I DISLIKE tourist cards of cities. They do nothing for me. Unless you've been there and have a story behind it. Sorry, I just don't care about skylines and old buildings. Tourist PC's with the Wilderness, beaches or State Parks is fine!

I absolutely 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, Kamisama Kiss, 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)- I ran into Stan Lee there! 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 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!
