About Me

Update Approximately 2 1/2 weeks ago I suffered a second stroke. I've been going through many medical tests and such with the doctors trying to figure out what is happening and the best course in treatment. I am trying to work on my swaps but obviously my health and family have to come first. I am working on them as fast as I can. For those who are waiting - I sincerely appreciate your patience and will do my best to send you something you will enjoy!
Thank You for your understanding and patience!

July 2010 Over 4th of July weekend I suffered a mild stroke. I have been working with my doctor to get my blood pressure down ~ which was very seriously high (unknown to me). My doctor and I consider this a blessing... as I was very lucky that it wasn't more severe and I've been given a chance to make the life changes that I need to make to regain my health. :D

I am working very hard to get my swaps out and if I am behind - I have contacted you to let you know the swap is running a little late. My "Thanks" to those very understanding partners who are working with me as I recover and move forward!

UPDATE If you are missing a swap from me, Please PM me and let me know before you rate! I always send my swaps and if something gets lost in the mail, I will make it right for you. I've really had some difficult times with the post office but have been very diligent about re-making and re-sending. I will also do the same for my partners if I don't receive - I will PM you and give you an opportunity to fix the situation before rating.
Thank You!!!

Favorite Books

I love the Twilight Saga! Have read each of the books 7 times and have loved them each time!!! Favorite in the series is "Twilight", however the partial draft of Midnight Sun is also my favorite!!! I really hope the author will finish Midnight Sun - it has all the makings for a wonderful book!!! Enjoyed the "House of Night" books and am waiting for the next in the series. I've also just finished reading the 5th book in the Guardians of Eternity series by Alexandra Ivy - really great Vampire Warrior / Romance series!!! Another great Vampire series is the Midnight Breed series by Lara Adrian. I just finished the 6th book in the Midnight Breed series and loved it! I've also finished the 9th book in the Sookie Stackhouse series... I love this series and can't wait for what comes next!!! I never did read the Harry Potter series so I finally picked up the series and have finished up through Order of the Phoenix! I'm currently reading the Half Blood Prince!

Favorite Crafts

I love paper crafting!!! I enjoy scrapbooking, rubber stamping and making cards and gift boxes!!! I really enjoy making jewelry as well - I love working with wire and silver the best! Favorite colors: Sage green or olive green, peridot, turquoise blue, baby blue and chocolate brown mmm chocolate :) I also love all cutsie stuff - especially Kawaii items. I've also gotten into making match boxes - I love them they are so darn cute! And I've also started making felt stuffies and I really enjoy them! I'm doing some beginning Amigurumi crochet and loving it!!! :D

Favorite Movies

I love Sci-Fi and Fantasy movies!!! Really loved "Twilight" and can't wait for the rest of them to come out! I also love "Action" packed movies. Not a big Horror fan!!! I also enjoy romance/comedies. Have recently gotten into the Harry Potter movies and have enjoyed each of the ones I've seen. There are just to many favorites for me to list! :D

Favorite Television

Current fave shows: The Big Bang Theory, True Blood, Criminal Minds, CSI New York, Sanctuary, Fringe, Bones, Dr. Who (how sad that David Tennant has left the show!), Supernatural, Warehouse 13, Eureka, Special Unit 2, Reaper, Moonlight, Burn Notice and White Collar.

Old fave shows: Star Trek Next Generation, Air Wolf, Beauty and the Beast,Felicity, Millenium, X-Files, Witchblade, Kindred and Forever Night

Likes / Dislikes

I love anything cute (Kawaii), Amigurumi - which I've fallen in love with!!! Felt Stuffies ( I've really gotten into making felt stuffies), I love serene items - like beach landscapes and softer / pale beach colors. I love most funny things - especially cute funny things!!! I love chocolate but I'm also located in So. Calif so the weather is usually hot enough that the Chocolate will melt! I enjoy quiet time - I don't get much of that! :D But I love to read during my quiet times... or I craft!

Teeny Tiny Stuffie Swaps Just a few ideas in case you are stuck... I love Kawaii cute stuffies, animals (would love a little piggy, penguin or beaver) and sea animals (would love an otter). I think the cute robots are so fun... and something Twilight or vampire would be great too!!! :D

Not really a big Country fan and not really into religious items. Definitely not into Sour candies!!! I do have asthma and am allergic to almost all fragrances! The only one I've found that doesn't bother me is Tova's Original fragrance which I've been using for over 25 years! I'm also allergic to almost all pet dander and especially cats.

Rating / Hearts

I PLEDGE TO RATE! I try very hard to rate my swap the same day I receive it. If I haven't rated a swap, chances are it hasn't arrived and I will PM you if a swap goes missing. If you are going to be late, please PM me. I understand things can happen.

HEARTS!!! I generally give hearts based on the amount of thought and effort that was put into your swap. This really is more important to me than the extras! I do appreciate the extras though... :D

Favorite Music

I love classic rock, pop, classical music and jazz.
