Don't feel that you have to follow my favorites, I like all colors and like to see peoples creativity.
Hi, I'm a Christian home school mom of 2 children and 4 fur babies. I love meeting new people and learning about other cultures. My son is getting ready to graduate high school and I finally have time for me again and to get back into swapping. Between moving several times with my husbands job, my daughters illnesses and my diagnosis of fibromyalgia, I was too exhausted to do anything else for a while. Anyway, I color my hair a bright red and love fairies and the ocean. I have a fairy tree in my room and many fairy dolls. Even my crested geckos have fairy names and fairy themed cages since they reside in my room. I would call myself a romantic--I love sparkly things and am happily married to my high school sweet heart. My profession is a Speech Language Pathologist. I also love hot tea and anime. I go to anime cons with my family and play Dungeons and Dragons.
My favorite song is "Youâ€™re the Inspiration" by Chicago. It's my husbandâ€™s and mine love song. My favorite opera of all time is "Phantom of the Opera". But I also like Top 40, dance club music, & K-Pop. GUITAR Hero for Xbox rocks.
I am not a big TV/Movie person, but I like: Legend, The Princess Bride, The 10 Commandments, Hitman with Timothy Olyphant, The Tenth Kingdom and movies where the good guys win.
Face-Off, Project Runway, the nature and history channels
Anime: Spice & Wolf, Gate, Mushi-shi, My Love Story, SAO, ...
BOOKS: The Bible, mystery stories, fantasy (Dragon Lance series), fairy poetry, love poetry, Anne Rice.
I am allergic to shellfish, wine, red food coloring, wintergreen, hibiscus,
In general I seem sensitive to alot of the fake colors and flavors. I prefer to eat fresh or with real ingredients.
I can't tolerate potpourri or strong perfumes and fake fragrances. But I do like real lavendar and roses and citrus.
Allergic to smoke and to kitties
I like to draw and paint. But I like to make and experiment with other genres like as well. I would love to learn stained glass. I am loving swap-bot. I have met wonderful people from all over the world. It has been a blessing for me and I try very hard to share a blessing with each thing I make to share it with others.
I collect: -sand from beaches all over the world -sea glass, pieces of stained glass -fairies/mermaids/sea life -I am not overly fond of abstract art, but I do like Klimt's "The Kiss". I collect fairy art, and Kissing art.--things that remind me of my first kiss with my hubbie. I love pre-raphaelic style art particularly, John William Waterhouse. -paintings of the sea and sailing. -vintage teacups and dog planters
