I'm desperately trying to get out these last few swaps. I've been way too busy with life and art projects to even think about my crafting. I assure you that all swaps will go out.
I'm a 39 year old single woman in Nashville, TN. I have a professional career, that I leave at the door when I get home. I have a big sloppy American Pit Bull(Dante) and two old black cats (Trey and Loa). My life is a variety. I have aquaintances in many social groups from business associates to alternative lifestyles. I enjoy live music (I think there's an oridinance in Nashville that requires it), musicals, and all kinds of art. I love dinner at a 5 star restaurant and pool at the local pub. I enjoy gardening, but don't do nearly as much of it as I would like.
I enjoy opinionated discussions. I'm strong willed and determined. I can be a bit stubborn at times, which works both to my advantage and my detriment. Diverse opinions make us think about our own decisions and opinions. We should all review those from time to time.
I'm hard to offend with language, sexuality, or nearly anything else. If you send me crosses, they will be passed along to someone else, but other religious iconography is fine.
is to hone my art skills enough to continue to sell paintings for the rest of my life all over the world. This is a big earth, I'd like to see much of it before I shuffle off of this plane. A home in Northern Italy amongst the vinyards and perhaps a small flat in New York City would suit me just fine. At some point, I'd like to expand my enterprise to fostering creativity in young people.
The continual closed mindedness, bigotry, and just plain idiocy in the world continues to baffle me. Rather than encapsulate my life, I have a sneaking suspicion I'm doomed to organize others against it, but I'm holding that calling off for now.
My musical tastes are varied. I like country - Toby Keith, George Strait, Kerri Underwood, etc
Celtic - Blackmore's night, Faith and the Muse, Celtic Women
Pop/Rock - Elton John, James Taylor, Josh Groban
Rock - Linkin Park, 3 Doors Down, Daughtry
Jazzish- Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra, Chris Botti
there are lots more, but those are some examples
I'm a crime show junkie - CSI, Law and Order, Cold Case, Shark, Cops, Criminal minds
comedy - My Name is Earl, Two and a Half Men, Til Death
others - Top Chef, Good Eats, No Reservations, House, Medium, Ghost Hunters, Most Haunted
I paint in both oils and acrylics. Oils are my passion lately. I'm taking a class in oils that I absolutely love.
I'm discovering pastels and other media and enjoying the process.
I am rediscovering crochet.
I can cross stitch, but haven't in years.
If I had to nail it down to a descriptor, the closest one is Shamanistic Wicca. I'm as familiar with my spirit guides as I am my physical friends. My permanent totem animals are panther, red tail hawk, monkeys, and rabbits. There are others that make their presence known at times- owls, spiders, vultures, crows, falcons.
Lately I'm attracted to Buddhist icons, so I'm reading up on that area.
I'm clairaudient. Yes friends, I hear voices. hehe
I'm also telempathic. In other words, I know when a persons feelings don't match their words.
These go hand and hand with empathic - picking up the feelings of others around me.
don't worry about me "reading" you. It seems to only work in person :)
I'm an Aquarius with a Scorpio Moon.
My favorite color is purple - all shades. My living room is sage green, purple, and a buttery yellow. My dining room is gold. There are accents of burgundy, blue and others all over, so most things will fit somewhere.
I'm not a huge fan of pink, but pink accents work fine :)
I like (a random list I'll update as I think of things)
I'm sure I'll come up with more stuff. I like most everything. :)
I love postcards! here are the state postards (mailed from that state) for the US that I'm missing, although all states and countries are welcome. I'm trying to collect a state postcard mailed from that state.
Arizona, Arkansas, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, North Dakota, South Carolina, South Dakota, Utah, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia, and Wyoming
if you're missing TN, just let me know and we'll set up a swap :)
Unusual stamps are also always welcome! :)
I always rate. If you haven't received a rating from me, please let me know. I have several postcards without the swap name, so I'm not sure who to rate
