About Me

**IMPORTANT: the "My Flickr" link above may contain spoilers! :) **

Please be careful with your swaps if you are a smoker. We have some asthma at my house and the smell of smoke is harmful. Thank you.

{edited 1/1/2013} Hi! I'm Alicia. My profile is long because I am a complex and complicated person. There's lots of info about me here, but please feel free to PM with questions!

I'm a stay-at-home-Mom with a combined total of four kids (ages ranging from 4 to 10), plus cats, a snake and my new puppy!

Do I have a day job? Nope, I'm just the head chef, maid, chief financial officer, laundry specialist, day planner, personal secretary, school volunteer, fashion advisor, petsitter, animal trainer, errand runner, transportation logistics organizer, personal shopper, walking encyclopedia and the Keeper Of All The Knowledge. Etc...

I have eleven tattoos, which seems to surprise people. I LOVE tattoos, and I really enjoy tattoo-inspired art.

The BF and I are avid trading card game players and collectors. It's a crazy hobby, but it's very fun, especially together. We also are pirate 'eventers', though we are not SCA affiliated. I'm really into Pirates. Real pirates, Jack Sparrow, dressing like a pirate and being all-together pirate-y!

I think I'm fairly easy to please, and I really love getting mail!

RANDOM FACTS:

  • I'm a Cancer.
  • I was once trained as an assasin in a secret convent; also known as a nunja.
  • I think anyone who's a douchebag should be punched. Or kicked. In the skunk.
  • I'm incredibly sarcastic.
  • And really, really snarky.
  • I'm left-handed. Yeah, a SouthPaw.

My Wishes:

  • POLAROID FILM!!!
  • Flair (also known as pins, badges or pinback buttons, though I really don't need the pinback part!)
  • Your art! You all are so talented! (I particularly enjoy inchies and twinchies and altered Rolodex cards made just for me!)
  • Washi tapes! I found a new addiction!
  • Project Life
  • SMASH
  • decorated/handmade envelopes for mailing (6x9 preferred, or 5x7)
  • acrylic/clear stamps
  • Thickers
  • tiny letter stickers
  • embossing powders, stickles, glimmer mists, smooch spritz, etc.
  • Tim Holtz products
  • micron pens, in colors
  • 'unpaper' towels or cloth napkins
  • cupcake/muffin liners; paper or silicon, standard or mini sizes
  • I will always accept random Magic: the Gathering cards, with gratitude! :D
  • Boxtops For Education, or Campbell's Labels for Education, for our girls' school
  • for you to fall in love with CTMH and buy from my website: www.Leashah.CTMH.com

FAVORITES:

I have a fondness for teeny tiny things. Things that are mini... Adorable, ittybitty things.

Books: I love a lot of supernatural fiction. I read trashy romance novels to kill boredom... I love Laurell K. Hamilton's Merry Gentry series, and I've been reading her Anita Blake series, and Kim Harrison's The Hollows series.

Music:

My favorite band is LUDO! I also adore Tommy & The High Pilots.

I also like... I guess it's mostly "soft pop"? Michael Buble, Sara Bareilles, Jason Mraz, John Mayer, Jack Johnson, Darius Rucker. And also Britney, Christina, Avril... And some country. :) (A little bit of a lot of different stuff!)

Crafts: I'm a scrapbooker mostly, or a 'paper crafter' and a Close To My Heart addict.

I don't sew or embroider or knit or crochet or quilt or anything! I actually never considered myself 'crafty' or artistic at all, until I discovered scrapbooking.

I'm a proud owner of a CriCut Expression and a REALLY EXCITED new owner of a Tim Holtz Sizzix VAGABOND! :D

I love Tim Holtz and October Afternoon and CosmoCricket and My Mind's Eye and Graphic45 and PinkPaislee and BoBunny and 7Gypsies and...

My 2013 Resolution is to actually do Project Life; if you are sending me cool papers or paper scraps you think I might love, please make them at least 3"x4" (or 4"x6") so I could use them in my PL, please. I don't need ATC blanks or backgrounds but I can always make more filler or journaling cards!

I am really enjoying Twinchies and Altered Rolodex Cards right now. I have a tray-style rolodex holder, so I prefer the backs of my rolos to be 'right-side-up', please. I use the 2 1/4"x4" or 2 5/8"x4" cards.

Color: Orange! ORANGEORANGEORANGE. I also love turquoise/teal/aqua.

Television: My "must-see"s are Bones, Dexter, NCIS and CSI. And Elementary. Okay, and SYTYCD. We also watch a lot of MythBusters!

Movies: Pirates of the Caribbean (all four); teenagery romantic comedies like Ten Things I Hate About You; anything Johnny Depp, especially with Tim Burton.

Candy: You know what's awesome? Jelly Bellies are! Sour Punch Straws, or Airheads Belts, and things like that that are fruity and chewy and sweet but also sour! I prefer dark chocolate, always. I love caramels and almonds. Pocky! And Nestle Aero bars! Mmmm!

Food: Carbs. As awful as that may be. I love fresh bread, and cheeses... and cream cheese. I love artichokes and olives and Subway! I drink diet Dr. Pepper almost exclusively now, as far as soda goes. I can't stand any of the other diet sodas. Also, I love matcha!

Clothes: I love super soft fabrics and fuzzy scarves. I love fingerless gloves and arm warmers. I rarely wear hats. I have a passion for hoodies (XXL) and slippers! I wear size 8US shoes/socks. I can NOT wear knee socks, sadly!

Scents: I can't stand a lot of chemically smells, or anything highly scented. We use non-scented...almost everything. I don't burn candles, though I have a few pretty ones sitting around. Incense and air-fresheners give me a nasty headache. I do wear perfume, though not every day. I wear Armani Mania, Beyonce Heat and Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy.

Family

KIDS

  • Destiny, 10 (birthday: April 15)
  • Taryn, 8 (birthday: August 3)
  • Zoe, 7 (birthday: August 2)

The girls love the Disney Princesses, Tinkerbell (and the other faeries), Hello Kitty, and unicorns. They like to play with Littlest Pet Shop toys and Monster High & Barbie dolls, and drawing/coloring/painting! They'd love handmade or gently used Barbie clothes/accessories. They all love purple and pink.

  • JJ, 15 (birthday: August 10); he's a high school sophomore and he likes Harry Potter, Hunger Games and Twilight; enjoys Drama/plays, reading, writing stories and plays and playing with his NERF guns. He doesn't like chocolate. (He's not currently living with us.)

  • Devereaux, 4 (birthday: March 23); he loves Thomas the Train, Spiderman, DINOSAURS, Batman and Disney's Cars and Toy Story characters. He LOVES his wood train set and Matchbox cars. His favorite show is on PBS, it's called Dinosaur Train!

THE BF

  • Josh (birthday: February 6); aka 'Simba' (He is @Simba here!); he loves to play Magic: The Gathering, and video games on the computer or Wii. He likes to play card or board games in general, and solve logic puzzles and sodokus. He's interested in physics, math, astronomy, and learning Latin. He adores cute/goofy/intelligent humor tshirts (Men's size XL). He loves RedVines, Skittles and Starbursts; and he likes pretty much anything pineapple or coconut (but hates chocolate).

MY PUPPY
This is Phoenix. His birthday is May 4th, 2012, he's a Shiba Inu. We ADORE him!!!

He loves noisy toys that jingle or squeak but aren't stuffed, and natural/organic (no corn and no soy) treats. He loves bully sticks and can not have rawhide.

We should always try to learn from dogs...
- When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
- Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
- Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure Ecstasy.
- Take naps.
- Stretch before rising.
- Run, romp, and play daily.
- Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
- Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
- On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.
- On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
- When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
- Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
- Be loyal.
- Never pretend to be something you're not.
- If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
- When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently.

SNAKE

  • S'mores, I'm unsure of his color morph, but he's dark, not normal cornsnake color and 21" long.

CATS

  • River, 4 (birthday: January 25)
  • Tybalt, 2 (birthday: August 20)
  • τέσσερα (Tessera), 1 year old (birthday: 5/15/11)

The cats' wishlist:
- craft pompoms larger than 1"
- any handmade toys
- goldfish crackers (for Empress River)
- cute collar charms/tags

...Dislikes

I'm not all that fond of cartoon characters, or Diddle or Hello Kitty or most of the "kawaii" stuff (I think Charmmy Kitty is adorable, though). I'm not into Harry Potter or Twilight.

Please don't send scented candles or incense or air fresheners, thank you.

I'm Agnostic and irreligious, and would prefer that you keep your beliefs and/or religion to yourself. Thank you.

I'm easy to please and I really, truly, seriously love getting mail!!!

My kitchen is mostly accessorized in orange and rust colors, with a splash of green in the window from my orchid and bamboo plants!

We have a rubber duckie themed bathroom, that still needs more ducks!

Our bedroom is eclectic with tattoo-inspired wallart and letterpress Ludo posters. My youngest has a Spiderman room and our girls' bedroom is currently lavender and Disney Fairy themed, but they will quickly grow out of it!
