First things first - If you don't receive a swap from me, please PM me first before rating. I will be happy to resend. Also, if there is ever a question about my send date, I always keep the customer copy of the customs slips, round dated by the post office and can provide a copy of it to my partner should the need arise. The same with confirmations slips. Communicate with me before rating if you have not received a swap. I keep all swaps I send in my send folder until they are received, coming and going, and I check on anything I have sent that hasn't been rated by communicating to my partner.
Merry Meet everyone. My name is Rose and I love meeting new people. I have two grown daughters who live in Oregon and the only ones home with me are my two kiddies (kitties) Mia and Smudge who are Calico cats.. I love reading, kayaking, and all things in nature. I love listening to music, especially Newage and Folk Rock. I do dream analysis for myself and sometimes my sister, (ladeiraven here on Swap-Bot). She does it for me when I get stuck and don't have a clue.
Some of my other hobbies are/have been: fencing (I am fascinated with it and took a semester of it in college), live theatre- I have been a volunteer in live theatre as an usher, box office manager and back stage prop mistress, as well as had a role in "The Mystery of Edwin Drood". It was a long run and I was glad when it was over. I love rocks and crystals and collect both. I also took line dancing lessons for three years and ended up being quite good at it, (so I have been told).
One of my other loves, hobby, that fascinates me are the Germanic/Nordic Runes. I have studied them extensively and really find them and the history fascinating. I prefer Older Futhark rather than the Younger Futhark.
I would love to have an Australian Pen Pal Or English Pen Pal (Snailmail style), and also a skype pal if anyone is interested. Lots of Light-Rose
This is important, so now that you know a little about me I want to say right off that my chosen path is Pagan/Wiccan, BUT, HALLOWEEN IS NOT my favorite holiday. Please do not send me blatantly religious items.** I respect everyone's right to believe in the religion of their choice, so please respect mine also. I am an environmentally conscious person and I belief in recycling. I am a non-violent person and always strive to resolve issues peacefully. If you have an issue with something I have sent you, or something I have done, please PM me to work it out. I am sure it is only a misunderstanding.
My Goddess is Freya
I am a naturalist and environmentalist and believe in protecting our planet. I have volunteered in a number of organizations replanting trees, cleaning up waterways and trails behind people who could care less about where their trash goes. I believe in recycling. If you don't know anything about Freecycle, please check it out. This grassroots movement helps keep trash out of the landfills, saving our environment while helping others in need. You know what they say, one person's trash is another person's treasure.
My sister @ladeiraven on Swap-bot is my best friend. We don't live in the same state, but we do talk to each other every day.
** I don't believe in saying something mean to someone because I am mad at the moment or just because I can. Once the words are out they can't be taken back, and the effect has ripples that can last a life time. I will always try to find something kind to say, but even I have my limits.**
I am currently reading the Argeneau Vampire Series by Lyndsay Sands. It is a great series One of my favorite author is really Nora Roberts, especially when she writes about Pagan/Wiccan things.
My newest interest in reading is Stephanie Rowe (The Order of the Blade series-it's my sword fetish), and Elizabeth Naughton-The Eternal Guardian Series- again with the swords, AND if you haven't read The Circle Trilogy, by Octavia Randolph, it is definitely worth reading.
My all time favorite story was Alice in Wonderland, Alice through the looking glass. I have a collection of King Arthur books, including Gallahad, Merlin, Uther Pendragon, Lancelot, etc. King Arthur is my hero-(I have a thing about swords). All my books are on Kindle so I have access to them at all times.
I loved the books The Discovery of Witches annd The Soul of Night. I can't wait for part three.
Did I Mention I LOVE SWORDS
Indiana Jones Movies, and the new Indiana Jones guy, Jack Hunter,(what a hunk!,) I loved Mama Mia!, but I really like to watch movies that have a lot of historical information in them. My other two all time favorite movies are, "Practical Magic" and "Mists of Avalon". I also loved Avatar-it was spectacular. I loved the movie Thor. I love Norse Mythology. There is going to be a sequel to it.
Wow, favorite television, a tough one, but my favorite is "Mid Sommer Murder's" a British Show, "So you think you can dance." Then Vampire Diaries and NCIS. I almost forgot, I loved the show "Charmed". I am hooked on Vampire Diaries and True Blood, what a zany show. I also like Criminal Minds, even if it does give me nightmares.
Two new favorites are Pan AM and Big Bang Theory, it is goofy, but funny. I also love the show Castle.
My favorite classical composer is Mozart and second favorite is Vivaldi (especially his 4 seasons) and my third would be Strauss. I have a lot of CD's by Mozart, one by Vivaldi (four seasons) and none by Strauss. I love, love, Yanni and my favorite of his is the Album-Tribute and the music-Tribute on the album. It totallly relaxes me and is my go-to music when I am wigged out about something.
More Earthy Music- I have recently discovered Elaine Silver, a very powerful voice which is very relaxing to listen to. I also recently discovered an Australian group called Spiral Dance. I am Irish/Italian and really connect with my Irish roots, so Enya is another favorite. On a more common side, I love Oldies but Goodies which I have very little of. I also heard a song by Ingrid Michaelson I like.
I love Meditational Spa/Yoga type music.
I LOVE OPERA- Recently I heard a trio of Itallian young men (about 16 or 17) called IL Volo. They were absolutely magnificent, and their singing reminded me of my Mom singing opera around the house. Give them a listen, you will love them.
I love Yoga and the Yoga Ball
Mail Art has become my favorite art form, even over journals. I love making the ATC's, but I like the journals more. Problem with doing the journal swaps that it is a big gamble as to whether you get one back or not. In 2009 I did three journal swaps and only ended up with one of the journals. A lot of work goes into them and they are time consuming. It is probably the worst swap to get flaked on. I am fascinated with old journals. I also recently have gotten into card making and am just in the experimental stages, but I am really enjoying it so far.
I love the tags people make. It is an art form all of its own.
I am grateful to my swap-partners who take time out of their busy lives to share their art with me-blessings
IMPORTANT: I AM A LOOSE TEA DRINKER
I DO NOT DRINK TEA IN TEA BAGS UNLESS THEY ARE:
Any tea by Mighty Leaf.
Any Tea by Revolution
Some of my favorites are:
Chamomile, oolong, Cinnamon Orange Spice, green teas, and white teas, chai and any herbal teas. Not fond of Earl Grey, but if you send it, I will drink it.
I have not tried any tea latte's, although, my next trip to the coffee/tea shop I think I will give it a try.
I am drinking a lot of green tea now, for health boosts, I drink Jasmine tea (loose) at night before I go to bed, it helps me sleep.
I have a new Keurig Single cup coffee maker and I am loving it. I like trying out all the different coffee's and teas.
If I had a wish it would be for more time to read. So many books and not enough time to read them all. @#/Sighhhh@#
** I have a new Cuttlebug machine, so any embossing folders or dies (new or used) would be fabulous **
