About Me

Updated February 3, 2019: I apologize in advance if you don’t hear back from me for 2-3 days in a row. I work long hours 3 days a week and I don’t check in here on particularly tough days. So bear with me and please know I am not ignoring or neglecting you or my swaps!!!!!!

I started a new group called "Cards Galore" - lots of fun opportunities to make cards, share, and be creative!

I'm a trauma nurse, and am in school for my Masters Degree. I love being creative, which helps get me through the rough times at work and school. I also love gardening and birding, and enjoy cooking and wine tastings.

Family is everything to me! I don't have children, never will - by choice. I have three kittehs, and one pup. Well, the pup is a 5 year old 175 lb Anatolian/Pyrenees mix that is more of a human than a dog. We also have a few wildlife type creatures that we take care of, including a couple of skunks, opossums, squirrels, hummingbirds, armadillo (just to name a few).

I tend to have a smart-ass attitude most of the time. I can hang with the crudest of 'em, but turn around and be more of a lady than the fake ones. My attitude about life is that you only live once. So eat the cake, drink the tequila, and drop a few bucks on things in life that make you happy. Like wine. And kittens.

I don't watch TV, no time; I despise shopping, unless it is grocery shopping; and I ride my own Harley. Hmmmmm....that's about it. Not a lot of personal stuff.

I dabble

I tend to dabble a little into a multitude of projects. Altered crap, paper crafts, terrariums, sewing stuff, nature, anything goes. My husband and dad are engineers, technicians of building crap, and mechanics. I have a tendency to sort through their toss-puts from their workshop and use parts and pieces for assembling art and other nifty tidbits.

Faves

Faves right now: Shabby Chic *Altered stuff *Colors: Purple, White, Black, Mardi Gras colors, Yellow *Wildlife: Bees, hummingbirds, birds, flowers, butterflies, squirrels, skunks *SteampunkDragonsVampiresWitches&Wizards*Mythology *Wine theme *Goth – skulls are an obsession (not so much sugar skulls, but they are ok) *Witchy stuff

Not so much

Please no plastic canvas crosses. * Please no altered Barbie Doll stuff - I have 22 altered Barbie things, and while I love each piece, Barbie is not one of my collectibles - but now I have a collection (which I love - don’t get me wrong - but sometimes you CAN have too much of a good thing) * Disney * Anything related to babies or children * Anything religious * No cartoony characters or themes * No cheap extras that you don’t want * Anything that smells like mothballs or perfume or smoke * (Yes I know I am picky, but I spend a lot of time creating crafts and stuff based on people’s interests, even those who won’t give a star if a particular color is ANYWHERE in their package, so I hope people give me the same consideration :)

Private Swaps

Send me a message if you are interested in doing private swaps - I enjoy those because they are a little more personal. Also, I remember when I was a brand-spankin-new Swap-bot member, how hard it was to get into groups and swaps. Also, note, there is a "Newbie Helpers" group!

Comment: You and me, we're married now. I'm sorry to your husband. And mine LOL. I am so in love with the card and the envelope and the everything and I am dying. This past week has been the worst week of my life and seeing that envelope and opening has made me so happy tonight I think I can make it through class. What's funny is my bff was paired to send to me for a swap and she made it all pirate themed but the box she sent it in is just brown paper wrapped and I got it in the mail the same time as yours. I took a picture of both and sent them to her like "I think she's trying to one up you!" To answer your question about my liking to watch games played, I am absolutely TERRIBLE at playing RPGs but I love them so much! I just don't have the patience or attention span to play myself. So I watch play throughs on YouTube and my husband plays for me. I like playing simple, level based, and kid games cause I can actually pay attention to it lol.

Comment: OK, I don't even know where to start. The card and the matching envelope are amazing! I am in awe of the envelopes, I will be investigating them and how you have joined all these together. It's like you know me, with the extras-"Asswipes" & antiperspirant wipe. I didn't know those existed. Thank you!!!
