IF YOU ARE MY PARTNER AND I HAVE CLICKED SENT, IT MEANS I SENT IT. IF YOU DON'T RECEIVE IT, MESSAGE ME AND LET ME KNOW.
I am 27. Born on Halloween (yes, I enjoy Halloween themed things). Have been with my boyfriend since Jan., 2008. I have no children (although if my mother had ownership of my womb, she would have a grandchild by now). I have a bearded dragon who was born in July, 2008 and is for all intensive purposes my baby girl. I am on this site mainly for creative writing projects (including penpals, fiction, journaling and prompts) and to learn new crafts. I just started my own group in Dec. 2012 called Write It Out.
I sell Scentsy but still consider myself unemployed because I long to reclaim a real office job someday. I used to work for a local newspaper for almost 8 years and was laid off for the 3rd and final time (due to companies financial issues) in August, 2011. I hope to someday find a job that will fulfill my financial needs as well as my need to contribute to the welfare of my surrounding community.
I fully support Camp Ronald McDonald and if you get to know me, you may hear me rave about it. SEND ME YOUR SODA CAN TABS if you'd like. They go towards raising money for the Ronald McDonald House Charities (a portion goes to the camp which is for kids with cancer and their families).
I enjoy learning new things and meeting new people so if you get me as a swap partner, please feel free to include a little something of you. Be it personalizing the swap with a signature or including a small note with what made you happiest that week.

Documentaries - mostly about animals and psychology.
*The color green!
*WHITE apparel! I think white is so plain, empty and too easy to mess up (with stains and such)
*People who think they're better than everyone else. I believe we're all special, we all bring something to the table and I dislike it when a person thinks they're better than everyone else, be it based on their job, their financial status, their clothes, whatever. It's called being selfish and pompous. I personally try my hardest to give everyone a fair chance but if you're being outright rude, I'll more than likely just stop communicating with you.
*Religious items. I'm not religious and I wouldn't want to reswap the items because I don't want people to assume I am religious and start the circle all over again.
*Scarves. I've never worn a scarf, I like my hoodies, they work just fine.
*I'm not super big on candy.
*MINT and Cinnamon! Yuck, please don't send me mint tea or mint candies. I also don't like how they smell. I have to buy toothpaste that tastes less minty because I hate toothpaste taste. I like vanilla toothpaste. :D
NOTE: I'd prefer not to get things that smell like cigarette or cigar smoke. It causes me to have to separate them from the rest of my swap things because I don't want to smell to contaminate everything. :(
Art/Art doll of my avatar on Gaiaonline.com, click here
Sushi stuff (miniatures, paper, stickers, whatever!)
Shot glasses from around the world that depict either locations (i.e. state, city) or attractions (theme park, monuments, tourist attraction - jersey devil, lochness, etc.).
PURPLE is my favorite color
Ballpoint pens/felt tip pens/colorful markers (gel pens are hard for me to use since I'm left handed and they smear very easily as I'm writing)
I love the turrets from Portal and Portal 2 (video game)
Labyrinth memorabilia (the movie with David Bowie)
Aluminum pull tabs (like from soda cans)
Kawaii or regular stationary (if it's full size pages, I'd prefer lined paper - I write so crooked without guidance)
Kawaii food! (basically portrayal of cartoony food with human features like eyes, mouth, etc.) ((not real food, just like paper or stickers or pencils with them on it))
Hair accessories (ex: bows, clips - I put them on the left side of my head, I'm sad when I buy a clip and realize it's meant for the other side)
I have a love and appreciate for Camp Ronald McDonald. It is a camp that allows children with cancer and their families to enjoy nature is a safe environment, free of charge. Many of these children spend a good chunk of their lives in the hospital and may have difficulties making friends outside of their unique situation. The camp helps to teach children social skills, team building and self-esteem building as well as allowing them to have fun.
Donations to this cause are awesome but an even easier way to help me help them is to include soda can tabs in any package you send me. The Ronald McDonald House Charities takes them, recycles them and uses the money to benefit their cause and make me smile.
+++++++ ANGELS: catsandscales was my first angel, for the Harry Potter Series swap.
I would LOVE those of you who are skilled with ATCs or Inchies to send some of these themes my way. Perhaps a 1-on-1 trade? I'm not too good at ATCs though and have never made an inchie, so maybe a trade for something else. Here's the theme's I'd be most excited to receive: Steampunk
Old style circus/Cirque du Soleil
The Labyrinth (esp. Helping Hands)
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (esp. The Child Catcher)
