I am an easy going chick, have a unique sense of humor, very open minded, I like tattoos, my ears are gauged, I love all animals, I enjoy meeting new people, I love to learn something new everyday, I'm a child at heart (a nerdy child), game-show nut, puzzle nut (word find, soduku, fill-ins, brain teasers, cryptic puzzles all of them!) I love my parents, my Mom is my BFF, and I just try to enjoy life!
I just love to be creative, I love making things. I guess you could call me a dabbler, I have a tendency to try anything just to see how its done. However, my favorite crafts to do are paper crafts (particularly cards, collages & stamping), sewing, trash to treasure/recycling type crafts, jewelry making, and when I have time miniatures. One day I will learn to crochet. (trying to now)
I really enjoy making ATC's, handmade envelopes, note cards, bookmarks, postcards, I love using nicely patterned papers, I really like unique and monotone papers, and I use a lot of ribbon and stamping. I am not much of an embellishment person, but some times I do add a few extras to things.
I want to learn to crochet, and to do zentangles, I am so afraid to join a zentangle related swap! I would also like to try matchboxes.
I LOVE (a lot of things!) receiving and sending good old fashioned mail, there is an excitement and joy that comes from receiving snail mail that email will never achieve.
Also, most of my friends are not to crafty or creative when it comes to the things I like to do, I know some talented people, but no sewers, paper crafting, miniature enthusiasts, or trash to treasure types. So it gets kind of lonely when sharing stuff with people that do not understand the joy crafting brings!
I LOVE movies! Just as much as crafting! I particularly like horror (go Zombies), Star Wars (original), Lord of the Rings (books and movies), Harry Potter series, Sci-Fi, Bazaar & unusual movies, (including foreign), and comedy/action type movies. I do watch a little of everything though. I'm a sucker for musicals, cheesy 50's & 60's horror, as well as the new cheesy Si-Fi channel movies! I also love old B & W movies, Audrey, Greta, and all the lovelies from that era!
I watch way to much TV! Some of my favorites are; Justified, Being Human, Haven, Bob's Burgers, Criminal Minds, Raising Hope, Law & Order SVU, Dr. Who, Wipeout, The Walking Dead (I like Zombies!). The Food Network is my friend (love cooking and learning new things). Also game shows I am a nut for them. Even the old ones that are on during the day!
Not to into "reality TV" that much but I do watch Ghost Adventures (they are hilarious to me), and So You Think You Can Dance.
I like all types of music, from Beethoven to ZZtop with oldies, country, pop and metal thrown in too! If I had to pick a genre it would be a toss up between the 60's and the 80's! Huge Beatles fan, as well as Aerosmith, and Kid Rock.
I LOVE to read (like I said, I love a lot of things!), my book tastes are similar to my movie and TV tastes, horror (love earlier Stephen King, before he was hit by the car....), Science fiction, supernatural, mystery (I adore Nancy Drew!), true crime, history (especially ancient times), and the occasional autobiography.

I do not wear much Make-up, but I do ♥LOVE♥ lip balm, glosses, flavored (except coconut or banana), tinted, liquid, solid, tins, don't matter, I use them like mad!!
Disney, I like some of the movies, but I am not big on a lot of things Disney (EXCEPT STICKERS!) Religious items or cards, cow print, animal prints that are not a natural color (like pink cheetah), gel pens, color combo of Yellow & Green. Frilly lace (I do LIKE cotton crocheted type lace), raffia, and lighthouses (imagery).
Tea, I love fruity teas, and I am just getting into spice teas. Also always on the lookout for new Hot Chocolate flavors. Not a coffee fan.
I like A LOT of candy, so below are just my fave's!
I love hard candies, sour, sweet, particularly cherry flavored, but I also love butterscotch, orange, grape, apple and raspberry! I also like lollipops, skittles, Hershey Kisses, 3 musketeers, Twix, Kit Kat, M & M's, candy corn & pumpkins (I know its only at Halloween), marshmallow things, caramel, pretty much anything milk chocolate! PB & chocolate combined! Gummy ANYTHING! I also ♥LOVE♥ orange slices!
I also like trail mixes, especially the sweet & salty ones, I have a weakness for sunflower seeds (I ♥ the chocolate covered ones!), I also love sesame sticks! Soft cookies (choco chip, and sugar).
I love to try new things (as long as they do not contain any of my dislike flavors).
Anything licorice flavored, things with coconut, almonds, banana or coffee flavored candies, pretty easy to please when it comes to candy!

Ok, I have no children, but I do have "babies" they are my pets. I love my animals.
I do live with my parents, so not all the animals are mine! But currently we have 10 dogs and one fat cat!
So MY babies are Bink (the cat), Micki (a mini Dachshund), Yoshi (a fuzzy mutt), Diamond and Cy my puppy she only has one eye! I named her Cyclopes! But she is so cute.
Diamond, Patron, Misty, Roscoe and Cy are pit bulls, I love this breed, grew up with them, and myself and my parents have been RESPONSIBLE pit bull/bully breed owners for more than 40 years combined with NO problems or issues, EVERY SINGLE one of our dogs were/are happy, healthy, well adjusted, friendly, loving, and socialized doggies!
My families dogs are Napalm- An American Bulldog (the 110 pounder), Mini (another mini weenie dog!), Eddie (she is a pug mix), and Patron, Roscoe, & Misty (she was a rescue and came with that name!).
People need to educate themselves about this breed, here are a few links.
