I am a veteran (Army nurse). I am a married woman without children. I do have 2 dogs that I over baby. I had cats for many years - sadly my allergies got too bad and I can't live with the little critters any longer. I am a long term care nurse and love seniors. I also take care of my senior mom who lives with my self and my husband
I love swap-bot. It is so nice being able to expect something nice in the mail - and being able to mail out something nice to someone else.
I love instrumentals, rock, country, and believe it or not cadence (maybe I spent too long in the Army)
I Robot, the Deathlands series by James Axler, The Bible - best book ever written, the left behind series, Koontz, King, and anything educational on most any topic. (Hate the mushy love novels, except the historical kind) OK - I read almost anything :)
I paint, draw, art journal, sew, crochet, knit, embroider, cross stitch, and so much more. I am a craft butterfly (opposed to a social butterfly) flitting from one love to another as the seasons change and my interests change. I love trying new techniques, projects. The past couple of years I have been focusing on paper crafts. I just love love love paper.
The only thing I collect are supplies to craft with. (I am in love with used postage stamps - if you send something to me please use real postage stamps) I love craft supplies that are on sale, grab bags (which force you to expand your horizons - to use up the supplies) and I love re-purposing junk to alter or use as craft supplies (my little tiny bit to reduce land fills).
My favorite colors are blue and red, but I love most any color except dull muddy colors.
I pledge to rate you as soon as I possibly can. I will be fair in my rating :)
I have a rectangular Rolodex, I am on the hunt for an old circular Rolodex. I'm brand new to altered rolodex cards - but I'm having a blast!
I am truly sorry to anyone who did not receive their swap on time. If you had a swap in August or September with me and have not received it please PM me. I had just two missing swaps in July and each time went to the post office to inquire what might have happened I was told it was "not us" then I had several in August. I acted like a jerk and screamed at the post office personnel while customers were present (never do this) I subsequently received damaged mail - all the mail I put in my mail box came up MIA. I have subsequently apologized profusely and am receiving fairly undamaged mail. I am sending out all subsequent swaps from a nearby town as a precaution. Again I am so very sorry for any inconvenience to anyone. but please PM me if you have not received something I will happily resend. Please give me a few day to make the resend though. thank you
