May 1st, 2013 - Slowing down on hosting/swapping for a while. Too much drama and flakiness compounded in a short time-frame is resulting in burn-out. I'm not going anywhere and will still be around, so feel free to message me if you need anything!
May 28th, 2013 - Things are getting WORSE rather than better around here. I'm going to end up on a full break soon if this keeps up. I love swapping, but it isn't worth the level of stress it's causing.
PLEASE NOTE - I am not a fan of animal products. (Yes, I am a vegan.) Feathers, leather, wool, beeswax, lanolin, bone, etc make me a :( face. Thank you for your consideration! ♥
Real postage stamps on envelopes make me happy - bonus points if they are especially interesting or unusual! I utilize used postage in my crafts regularly - love 'em!
I recycle. Don't be surprised if you receive an envelope made from a calendar or an advertisement, or a reused bubble mailer - be kind to the environment!
I reached 1000 hearts on June 28th, 2012 - yay for happy mailboxes! ♥
Hi, mystery reader! I'm a married mother of two busy little girls - one is six, the other is two. I hope to go back to college one of these days, but for now, I'm a student of life. ^_~
Kaia is our six year old daughter - her birthday is October 17th. She likes the colors blue and pink, snacks, coloring, reading, making crafts, My Little Pony, Pokemon, temporary tattoos, postcards, animals and Lalaloopsy dolls. She collects (and loves making!) ATCs.
Cameron is our two year old daughter - her birthday is August 16th. She likes balls, Bubble Guppies, snacks, coloring with crayons, blocks, dinosaurs, crocodiles, and meowing at cats! Her newest obsession is Sandile (a Pokemon) - it's her favorite thing EVER. She calls it 'Snanap'.
Josh, hubbymine & my best friend - his birthday is May 1st. He likes video games, Doctor Who, coffee, hot chocolate, beef jerky, and candy. (Especially Starburst or Jelly Belly jellybeans & Hershey's chocolate.)
Our herd - Three cats (Boo, Zoey and Koopa) and two dogs (Bowser and Ellie).
I go by Marryth just about everywhere, so if you see another Marryth somewhere online, it's probably me!
I play WoW - mostly on Moon Guard server.
TV -- I really don't watch much, and when I do, it's probably on Netflix. Absolute favorite: Doctor Who (especially Ninth, Tenth & Eleventh Doctors)
Movies -- I'm open to almost anything, as long as it's not over-the-top senseless violence/gore-y. I used to LOVE horror movies, but after having kids, I just can't watch 'em! (I still love classic horror imagery, though.) I have an intense dislike for "chick flicks". My genre of choice these days tends to be action or sci-fi - bonus points if it's funny. Two of my favorite movies EVER are Wall-E and Up. ♥ (I'm also a big fan of the original Evil Dead, heheh.)
(I'm sorry, but I rather hate Twilight. ^^;)
I read a TON, whenever I get a few minutes to myself. I'll read anything I can get my hands on - I read too quickly to be very choosy. My books of choice are generally fantasy, sci-fi, horror or mythology-based. If you have any book suggestions, please do share!
My musical tastes are incredibly eclectic. My playlist bounces between anything from (old) Weezer to Etta James to Opeth to Operation Ivy to Beethoven. One of my favorites would be I Fight Dragons - it combines my NES-love with music!
I like: Doctor Who ♥ Lalaloopsy dolls ♥ oranges (the imagery AND the fruit itself) ♥ cutesy dinosaurs ♥ decotape ♥ giraffes ♥ robots ♥ owls ♥ stars ♥ the colors pink and orange, especially together ♥ NES ♥ classic horror imagery ♥ Monster High ♥ cute Pokemon ♥ smiling ♥ colorful socks ♥ reading ♥ crafting in general ♥ ATCs and supplies ♥ cross stitch ♥ making envelopes ♥ music ♥ adventures ♥ BJDs ♥ sunshine ♥ gardening ♥ cooking ♥ learning ♥ takochu ♥ video games ♥ rubber & clear acrylic stamps ♥ Halloween (year-round!) ♥ cozy fingerless gloves for indoor use ♥
I DO NOT like: Cell phones = animal products = hazelnuts = coffee = aspartame = black licorice = the smell of smoke or incense = converty-religious stuff = toe, knee-high or thigh-high socks = realistic squirrels or deer = FBs or anything like them = Twilight (please don't even send me anti-Twilight stuff...even just the name makes me think 'Eww!') = anything circus-related =
I'm phobic of: Clowns, eyeballs, flying bugs.
Though I'm happy to collect ATCs, inchies, etc with just about any theme/medium, here are a few guaranteed to make me smile:
On an ATC note - I have no problem with tasteful nudity in my ATCs.
I am not a fan of ATCs that are extremely bulky or have overhanging bits, as I store them in binder pages.
Current tags and whatnot:
Nothing right now.
Nothing right now.
It makes me sad that I have to add this section, but here we go. I'm only going to list swaps which DO NOT have an angel at the top. (It was getting way too big otherwise, which is sad.) I have never once had a flaker make up a swap for me, and I'm veryVERY thankful for my lovely angels! Flakers and angels for other swaps will be listed separately. And another big THANK YOU to those lovely folks who angel things for people who get flaked on - people like you make swap-bot a better place! :)
