A little note about my profile

Hi! It's about time that I fill out my profile because it's been pretty much blank since I returned to the 'bot several months ago. I'm an original member, I've been swapping off and on since 2007. A lot can happen in 7 years! So here you'll get to know me a bit.

Who is Susi?

I am a 52 year old empty nester who has recently started a brand new life. I am living on my own for the first time in many, many years, and though it's nerve wracking at times, I'm also enjoying it. I have 3 grown children, Jesse, 27, my spirited son that lives in Venezuela; Jeremy, 26 my hard working (but somewhat playboy) son who lives in Las Vegas; and Kaity, 23 my dear daughter who is a nursing student here in Glendale AZ, near where I live. They are my pride and joy, I love them so very much and am so proud of them. I also have 2 fur children, two sweet doxies named Hans and Nueman that I adopted in October. They are my therapy/companion dogs, and they make me very happy. I am a student at a local behavioral health agency, getting a teaching certificale so I will be able to teach my peers, other adults that have diagnoses of mental health issues, as I do myself. I am a kindergarten teacher by profession, but due to health reasons, I no longer work, but I am not going to let that hold me back. I hope to go back to work again, someday in the future. I am now an intern, and will be getting my certificate in the beginning of October. Then I plan on continuing my studies to get a Recovery Coach certificate, which will give me even more opportunities for employment.

Favorite Crafts

I am a very eclectic artist. I dabble in just about anything that has to do with paper, although my favorites are art journaling, card making, making mini books, book binding and drawing zentangles. I also enjoy smash books and junk journals, although I am still not sure what to put in them, lol! I do collect ephemera though, and have enough to fill boxes, so at this time I'm not needing anymore! Unfortunately my creative muse has taken a vacation, so I haven't been creating as much, which is frustrating me!

Things I like/enjoy

Dachshunds! Since my human children have all grown up and left the nest, I have adopted three furchildren. I have two boys, Hans and Nueman, who are both 9 years old. I have had them a little over a year now. They are sweet little fat sausage dogs! I just adopted a darling little girl named Ghia last month. She is 13 years old, and is the feisty litte Queen of the house! I love the color blue in any share or tone, especially teal. I My favorite music is eclectic, I listen to pretty much everything except most hip hop, rap and heavy metal. I never used to watch television, but since I moved into my new apartment, I am watching way too much, lol! Doxies! Wiener doggies are my absolute favorite breed. I love to read/listen to Young Adult dystopian fiction books such as The Hunger Games. I enjoy reading, but my eyesight is not as good as it used to be, so I mostly listen to audiobooks. I have listen to so many that I like that I really can't say I have a favorite! Did I already mention that I adore dachshunds? LOL, I think I did!

What I like to find in my mail

Happy mail! Surprises. Tea. Inspirational and motivating quotes. Recipes and recipe cards. Anything hand made. Envelopes. Blank note cards. Blank postcards. Art supplies. Pens and/or pencils. Candy. You get the idea! Since I make themed mini books, I can always use themed paper (4x6" is the size I use most!) and embellishments like stickers and quote, stamped images, (especially for little boys!!), back to school and school days, family, travel, friendship, and weddings.

Things I don't want or need

Please do not send me any religious material of any sort.

Please note...

I would appreciate it very much if anyone has a question about the recent 3 rating that I received not make any judgement against me without talking with me first.

Comment: Sadly, this was sent late. And when it arrived it was was the not the quality of work I expected for sending so late. The nickle you glued on came off in the mail. After contact with the coordinator of the swap, it was agreed upon by both of us that a 3 rating was fair.
Response: I sent you a message on the 11th with an explanation as to why I was sending the swap late. I sent you another message on the 15th telling you that I had mailed the swap to you on the 13th of December, just 2 days past the due date. You did not have the courtesy to respond to either of those messages. I am sorry that the nickle fell off of the rolo in the mail, but that happens sometimes; it is not reason enough to rate me with a three. You waited 2 weeks to rate me so that you could give me a 3 instead of rating me as soon as you received the rolo.
