About Me

UPDATED - 7/29/16 - I am more or less on a semi permanent hiatus from swapping. I am a fitness instructor (I teach circuit, yoga, and zumba - my fav) and am at the gym 5 days a week plus.. My art business is thriving and I do a lot of shows and local events.. So I dont have much time to swap.. I would like to swap here and there tho privately if anyone is interested. You can see my work on my facebook page:

Im an original member that has been on a long hiatus. I returned b/c I enjoy making stuff. I have been happy and disappointed with things I have received over the years but I find that it helps me focus on what to make. Without swapping I sometimes have trouble narrowing down what I want to do.

alt text alt text

Im a SAH homeschooling mom. I'm 41. I have 2 boys at home - twins age 9. My kids play sports, do dance, tumbling, etc. They keep me pretty busy most days. I have a hard working hubby I've been married to for almost 11 yrs now. He works at a refinery and drives our 18 wheelers. I am the office manager of our business as well.

~~~~~~~~~alt text~~~~~~~~~~~

I am a proud West Virginia girl - transplanted in Louisiana. I love my current state, but especially loyal to my hometown. I miss it so badly and try to get back home as often as I can.

Im really into health/fitness. I spend 4 or 5 days a week at the gym (plus some workouts at home in between). I love to take pilates, circuit training, yoga, and working out on the elliptical. Eventually I aspire to be a yoga instructor. I belong to myfitnesspal and regularly track my food and activity. You can pm me for my screenname there if you would like to add me as a mfp friend.

Im studying for a doctorate in Metaphysical Psychology. Eventually I will be an ordained minister and would love to perform weddings in the LGBT community. I do a lot of personal reading - some non-fiction and when im in the mood for fiction - trashy novels lol

That's me in a nutshell.

Favorite Crafts

alt text

I mostly draw .. I primarily do zentangles. I have done them for several years now. I currently have art hanging in a gallery and also have done some large pieces on commission. I am currently working on a commission for a cemetery themed piece. I am really excited about it. But sometimes I just enjoy doing a postcard or smallish piece "just because"

Sometimes I crochet.. I also do loom knitting... I find that my yarn crafts tend to be cold weather activities - but I sometimes deviate from that. I like to stock up on knitted/crocheted gifts for the xmas holiday and I plan on doing some craft shows this fall.

I can do an myriad of other crafts - altered art, hand embroidery, sewing, crazy quilting, painting, art dolls, jewelry, book making, etc. I just generally stick with a few crafts that I float between.. which for now are drawing and crochet/knitting.

Stuff I like

alt text

I like postcards.. handmade and store bought. I dont really need xtras - I prefer someone put their all into the item(s) we are swapping for. I

love yoga and anything zen-like. I like rainbows and bright colors. I love nature and natural type materials.

I love to read! I especially like erotic romance novels. I read the 50 Shades Trilogy (and saw the movie)and L-O-V-E-D it. I know it got bad reviews and the writing could've been improved but over all it was awesome. Im always open to book recommendations in this genre!

I love coffee. Last year I got a Keurig and it's my baby. I love all sorts of different flavors. Green Mountain and Starbucks are my fav kcup makers. I also enjoy tea and cocoa in my Keurig.

My Rating Philosophy

I rate according to site policy - 5 if you sent what you were supposed to.. 3 if it was late or didn't fit swap description, and a 1 if I didnt get it. I give hearts at my own discretion.
