I'm a mom of two teenage boys, live in Texas with my husband on 20 acres of land with our four horses, four dogs, too many kitties :), two birds and one bearded dragon!
I like most music, with the exception of opera and hard rap (repeat rap as I call it..same verse over and over and over....). Country is my main squeeze, but I like the newer oldies stations (the ones that play the eighties, nineties & early 2000's)..but mix it with all genre's too!
I love romance novels, but read most anything. My most favorite author is JD Robb aka Nora Roberts, but I like Jude Devereaux and Catherine Coulter as well as a few others!
I have a blogspot where I'm just beginning to review books. Feel free to click the link above and read my reviews. Keep in mind it's brand new.
I have found a few new authors in the past few months. I'll try to post them soon!
My all time favorite movie is "The Fifth Element" but I like most comedy/romances. I especially like the Family channel and Hallmark. Holiday shows are a super plus, too!
I love the newer reality shows. CSI, Law & Order, COPS, Dog the Bounty Hunter as well as quite a few others! And, I'm a sap for the Family Channels as well as Lifetime!
I like to sew, cross stitch, make my own gifts, and make my own decorations. My most favorite of all crafting is to craft my own cards (cardmaking) and scrapbooking. I also love to crochet all kinds of things. I knit, but not as much as I crochet.
I love to swap stuff but as is everybody, am on limited imcome. I wanted to include my likes & dislikes on here so that there was no mistaking anything.
*stickers (sheets or loose)
*diddl & Pimboli
*Pooh & the Gang
*lotions, gels & bath items (girlie girl items) and love to be pampered
*paper clips (the more odd, the better I love them)
*stationary (including sets of two sheets & one envie)
*Envelopes!!! I'm always in need of envies!
*embellishments of any kind (buttons, flowers, beads, etc.
*fuzzy socks (cozy socks, decorative socks -- I LOVE Holiday socks)
*fat quarters & scrap materials
If ya have any questions, feel free to ask..
DISLIKES: No torn, bent or dirty items. Nor the tiny ones. No "trashy" items. I don't mind the teacher/reward stickers, but please don't sent them to me bent or torn, etc.
:::NOTE::: I had a pal email and tell me she was hesitant to send something because she had made it out of used materials..This is NOT what I mean by used, bent, torn, dirty, etc. I mean no stickers/stationary being used/bent, torn, etc. If you are making a swap out of used materials, more power to ya..it show's creativity, so go for it!
I will always rate my partners. Please do not fear that. If I get something and am not able to rate right away I leave it sitting on my desk (unopened) so that when I open it, I can rate.
Please don't forget to rate. Not only your partners, but your coordinators, too. And, if you are going to rate your coordinator a star after telling them so, please do so. It's really not a nice feeling.
I PLEDGE to RATE!!
