Hello!! I am a 30 year old stay-at-home mother of four ages 12, 10, 8,and 6. Three boys and one girl. But we have cable now, so there will be no more. I have been married thirteen years to my sexy soulmate, Shane. I have a serious sock addiction: stripes, dots, toed, anything crazy from my ankles to over the knee. I LOVE tattoos, skulls, and Roses. I am almost always willing to try new things. My husband and I are up to our eyeballs in Scouts. We are both Cub Scout den leaders in our local pack. And now that our oldest son has crossed over to Boy Scouts, my hubs is also an Assistant Scoutmaster with the local troop. We enjoy camping, hiking, and fishing. I love to quilt, crochet, knit and read. I also do cross-stitch. I collect shot glasses, keychains, quilting magazines and of course... FABRIC!!!!! 'Cuz you can never have too many FQs!!
MUSIC!!!!! I live for music!! You can keep the TV, give me tunes!! Rob Zombie, Seether, System of a Down, Paramore, Squirrel Nut Zippers, The Ting Tings, Enya, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, The Killers, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Theater of Tragedy...... I could go on forever. I have over 6000 songs on my itunes. So ya, I like music :)
My Husband would say anything in print but I disagree. All books are NOT created equal! I LOVE the Harry Potter books, except DH, I'm pretending that one doesnt exist. My all time favorite auther is Barbara Michaels, who also writes under the name Elizabeth Peters. I also enjoy Kristen Britain, Anne Rice, Sharron Shinn, Mercedes Lackey, Andre Norton, and J.V. Jones. I love good mysteries, and fantasy. I also read manga when I can get my hands on it (very hard to find around here) My favorites are MeruPuri, Fruits Basket, Hana Kimi, Ouran High School Host Club, Vampire Knight, and From Far Away (which I havent been able to find at any used book store so I have only read online)
Yes I know I said I would rather have tunes..... but that doesnt mean I dont watch TV ever!! Ocassionally my kids let me pick a movie... My all time favorite movie is The Spanish Main a slightly cheesy pirate movie from 1944... IN GLORIOUS TECHNICOLOR!!! What can I say? I have a small obssession with Paul Henreid (mostly his work in the 1940's) Also love Howls Moving Castle, The Labyrinth, All the Harry Potter movies, and Much Ado About Nothing.
Again....... Yes I do watch TV, just not much. If on the odd chance that I seize control of the remote... I prefer anime or crime shows. Inuyasha, Bleach, Fruits Basket, The Wallflower, Criminal Minds, CSI, House, and Bones. Um... yeah thats it. :)
My favorite craft would have to be quilting. My great grandmother taught me when I was very young. I have worked my way from simple doll size tied block quilts to a king sized double wedding ring quilt for my sisters wedding gift. I love fabric! I try to use diferent textures in my projects. I also try to experiment with a wide spectrum of colors and prints, but my favorites have to be Asian prints, jewel tones, black/white, novelty prints, and pink/brown.
As far as other crafts...... I mentioned some in my about me section, but I also make ATC's, Altered game pieces, I like turning odd whatnots into jewlery, LOVE playing with bottle caps, and making greeting cards (though that I take in spells when inspiration hits)

First I would like to say, that I will NEVER send anything that I wouldnt be happy to recieve. I try to put a lot of effort and thought into my swaps, and will always look to my partners profile for color preferences, likes and dislikes. As far as hearts.... I dont give hearts based solely on extras. If you want to send extras, its always WONDERFUL to get a surprise! But I believe hearts should be given for the HEART that was put into the swap. Sometimes it may strike me to put something else in with my swap, I might see something on your profile that inspires me to send you something beyond the swap requirements or maybe I just get really carried away while putting the swap together (I do that sometimes) But sometimes I may not. But everyone will get a well thought out swap, that I personally would love to get :)
Next, I'm really understanding, I know sometimes stuff happens. If for some reason you think you may be late sending, please just let me know! However that doesnt mean tell me you are going to be late and then never send out, thats not right.
And last, I will ALWAYS rate!! And I would apreciate it if you would do the same, nothing sucks more than putting a lot of work into a swap and then never knowing if it reached its destination.
Happy Swapping Everyone!!
