Favorite Crafts

I love to knit, especially socks. Most of the time if I am sitting, I am knitting!

I've also been known to scrapbook and make cards before my kids came along and spreading all my paper craft stuff out wasn't as easy as it was before.

Before I took up paper crafting, I enjoyed quilting. I'm mostly good at sewing in a straight line, so I don't sew many intricate things, but I love putting things together.

I haven't done much sewing or quilting or paper crafting since my kids came along, but now that they are getting older, it's getting easier to take things out to work on.

About Me

Hi there! Thanks for taking the time to look at my profile! I am brand new to this site for swapping, but I have been doing a few knitting swaps through other avenues. I just love it!

I live in (mostly) sunny northern California in a beautiful suburb of Sacramento. I have a busy family life with a couple little boys and a wonderful husband at home. I enjoy my role as queen of our little castle. Even our dog is a boy.

I have been a registered nurse for 11 years, specializing in post-operative cardiac surgery, including bypass and valve surgeries as well as heart transplants and artificial heart pumps. I love my job and love feeling that I am making a difference in the recovery of others at very challenging times in their lives.

I am so excited to start swapping here! Please don't worry too much about swaps with me, I'm just super excited to get mail that isn't bills! I'm not picky!

Favorite Books

I love a good chick-lit novel. My favorite author is Sophie Kinsella a.k.a. Madeleine Wickham. She writes the funniest romantic comedies. I also enjoy the Bridget Jones books. I am in a book club that reads a lot of books outside of my romantic comedy comfort zone, and I have enjoyed most of those books as well, but will always reach for a book with a romantic comedy-vibe to it if left to my own devices.

Favorite Television

I am so so sooo very happy that fall is here and my shows are back on. I enjoy watching The Goldbergs and flashing back to my childhood in the '80s. I'm also hooked on Scandal and New Girl. I watch a LOT of children's shows (not my choice!) and a lot of San Francisco Giants baseball, thanks to my boys.

Favorite Music

Oh, Dave Matthews, how I love thee.

Also, I love the Dixie Chicks and was so excited to recently see them live!!! I'm also a Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood fan. I guess mostly I like that crossover type country sound.

Likes and Dislikes

My list of LIKES includes:

Most any color except red. The ocean. Dogs. Children. Stars. Flowers. Fleur de lis. Paisley. Chocolate. Chocolate. Chocolate. Cycling. San Francisco Giants baseball.

My list of DISLIKES includes:

Red. Coffee (I know. I'm weird.) Tea (I know, I know) Politics Religious items

Comment: Hi Amber, dear. I received your package today. Thank you so much for the wonderful hearts and charms! I only wish I could give you a heart, but I cannot as it was sent late..... :( . I am grateful that you contacted me and LisaLisa about it though. You should go into the swap and mark it sent. Happy swapping to you.... Hope to have you as a partner in the future!
