My Favorite Things in General

Shades of Purple, Red, Dark chocolate, fairies, mermaids, the ocean and beach(this is my calm place), sailing especially on a catamaran, antique hunting, growing roses and veggies

And I don't mind receiving religious things, prayers, poetry, uplifting verses etc.

Don't feel that you have to follow my favorites, I like all colors and like to see peoples creativity.

About Me

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.

Favorite Music

My favorite song is "You’re the Inspiration" by Chicago. It's my husband’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.

Favorite Movies/Books

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

Favorite Crafts

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.

Collections, Likes and Dislike

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

-Please no perfumes or artificial fragrances (natural dried herbs, lavender and roses are Okay) or else I’m sneezy. Please see the complete allergy list in the allergy section near the bottom of the page.

-no magnets please...my stainless steel frig does no accept magnets

-I am overdone on tinkerbell and Disney. -no bubble bath -no hershey’s - no lipton tea

Wish list:
-vintage papers, trim, lace and buttons

-fairy , angel or mermaid note cards and things

-sea glass, shells and sand from the beach

-little glass bottles to put my sand in and small tags to hang from them

-little charms or unusual beads to embellish my fairies

-oriental scrap papers or embellishments

-medieval stuff: dragons, knights, castles, swords

-paris stuff to decorate my craft room (I share with my daughter and she wants to go to Paris)

-small to medium silk flowers to make into doll dresses

-vintage chocolate signs, boxes or tins

-antique tea cups especially hand painted or Nippon

-flower stickers- the small 3-D kind that usually have several layers and a sparkly gem in the middle

-cute faces

-leopard print is always chic

-victorian era things


Besides chocolate: Chocolate and Tea. Asian food. Cooking from scratch...since going gluten and dairy free two years ago, it has helped my fibromyalgia a lot. I try to do a small garden for fresh veggies.

I am going back and tracking the origins and destinations of my swaps. WE did an Octopus ATC swap back in '10. If you don't mind, could you share your city/state? Thanks so much.
