ATTN:! I have had some personal issues and I am trying my best to get caught up. I have had a lot of issues this past week or two and it has caused me not to have time to log in! I have taken time to reach out to my partners and will be playing catch up. I usually communicate before or on the deadline if I am going to be late, but my family has been hit so hard this week that I just haven't had time. And while I would love to be the perfect swapper, my family is my top priority. Please be patient with me. Prayers are greatly appreciated!
Yay! It's my favorite time of the year!!
A little note for anyone who takes the time to read my profile. If I do not rate you, please contact me to remind me. I promise to rate and if I ever miss one, it's because something serious has happened! Please return the favor and take a second to rate me, too.
Also, if you do not receive a swap from me, please message me. I always send out my swaps (they may be sent out on the deadline day, but they are always sent out). And if you receive a damaged swap from me that you suspect stuff missing from, message me, I will be happy to send a replacement.
I'm a simple Christian girl who has been happily married for since July of 2010, I have two little boys, and I'm currently working for RadioShack, as a sales associate. My house wife skills (I.E cooking and cleaning) are far less than average, but I make up for that with my ability to put a positive spin on nearly any situation and my sense of humor is like no other. Combining sarcasm, intelligence, and a dash of ditzy, I can make nearly anyone smile!
I openly accept any tips, printables, pointing to blogs, or recipes you wish to offer me. I really want to get the hang of this "keeping your house clean" and "not going out for every meal" thing down. ;)
**Read Me!!* I would love you to pieces if you are my swap partner for a stocking stuffer swap and send for one of these lovely people instead of me. OR if you sent anything for my family. My man only gets bills and my boys love helping open my mail, but I think they would enjoy it more if it was for them! Thank you.
My family is my life, my reason for pushing on, my whole existence- and they love getting mail just as much as I do! If you would like to send something to someone in my family for a special occasion or just because- I have their names, likes, and some special dates listed below:
Alex is my loving husband. He enjoys video games, action movies, electronics, music, reading, guns, and fire. He is currently OBSESSED with MineCraft. I would suggest something he could carry in his wallet that relate to these things. Or something he can stick on his car, etc. I don't expect, and don't suggest, anyone send a gun through the postal service! His birthday is 4/25 and our anniversary is 7/29/10.
Eric is my oldest son, he just turned 3 on 9/22 - he is growing up way too fast. He loves Blue Clues, My Little Pony, Bubble Guppies, Team Umi Zoomi, Danial Tiger, and Curious George - just to name a few!! He also loves matchbox cars. He cannot get enough and he wants a new one almost every time we go to Walmart. He also loves coloring and helping mommy make things.
Ezra is my youngest child - he turned one on 6/28. He likes bright colored toys (large enough that they cannot fit in his mouth!), stickers, putting lids on containers - this is actually one of his favorite things, dancing, and stacking things. He also likes following mommy around and making sure that she cannot do anything without being under his strict supervision. Haha!
If you have ideas on how to preoccupy them during church that would be great! My family is getting back into church and the boys don't know how to act. I would love some tips!
Hobbies, Crafts, & Themes I Enjoy
Swaps I enjoy participating in include ATC's, Crochet, letters, knit, handmade stuffs, journals, emails, pinterest, small gifts, stocking stuffers, rainy day gifts, and a lot more. If you are looking for an extra person to be in your swap please feel free to message me! If you are looking for one on one swaps, I would be more than happy to participate! Just message me with the details and we'll work something out.
Some of my favorite ATC themes include Bible verses, Christian themes in general, things relating to the joy of kids/boys, altered book pages, sex positive.
I would also be willing to angel to people in the USA. And I encourage you to be an angel, too! I pledge to ALWAYS rate. I have a system going so that I won't forget to rate you. Please pay me the same courtesy.
