About Me

I LOVE Swap-bot. Creating for someone else and just sharing your passion is great.

I enjoy scrapbooking and making invitations. I hope to learn some new things with swapping and maybe make some new friends along the way. Mostly, I have been working on ATCs having lots of fun.

I love to travel and have been to some interesting places, but wish I could do more. Greece is one the places I long to visit.

Favorite Music

My music taste vary. I listen to Pandora all day long. I hear music from the classic rock "the Beatles" to Mexican Rock "Kinky" to sometimes all day 80's.

Favorite Books

Just like my music my taste in books is varied. My favorite book is The Giving Tree is message just warms my heart. I also like Animal Farm and Cane River. I enjoy fictional books that have a lot of historical content. I just finished reading "Snowflower and the secret fan" by Lisa See...OH Wow did I enjoy it. Highly recommend it. Another favorite, and highly recommended is "The DoveKeepers" ...excellent.

Favorite Movies

I am definitely a Chick Flick fan. The American President, Pretty Woman and Beaches are among my favorites. But I also like movies with a twist, the Seventh Sense, The others. I like action films too if they are not too unbelievable.

I love the British movies about the Royal family, and I like all the Jane Austen book movies.

Favorite Television

Everyone and Anyone who knows me well knows that my favorite show is Law and Order. I have been watching since its inception in the 90s. I watch L&O, L&O SVU, L&O CI, L&O LA AND newly discovered L&O UK. Addicted to Downton Abby, House of Cards, and Orange is the New Black.

Favorite Crafts

Scrapbooking and making invitations are my thing. I got into scrapping in 1999 when my friend started selling CM. Boy has it changed.
I recently joined a ATC trading group...I love ATCs now. When I first started I was a bit intimidated...these women were so talented, but now I fit right in.

I got into invitations when my son was born 11 years ago. I made is birth announcements and it just took off after that.

Favorite Things

I LOVE Football, don't play but love to watch. I should clarify American Football. My son plays I have so much fun watching him. Favorite teams are 49ers and Trojan (USC) for our local college team.

I am not a really artsy person, crafty yes, Artsy no. So all that edgy stuff is so intriguing cuz I can't create stuff like that. My favorite color is Yellow. One year, I wore something yellow everyday...I know, I was young. I love Latin art. It really brings a sense of self. I love all the rich colors that are used and the stories the pictures tell. I love the smell of Vanilla...LOVE IT! One of my favorite food groups is Chocolate! Milk chocolate is best...with caramel, with toffee, with nugget you name it I like it. Just NO MINT...ewww.

DON'T LIKE.... Not much into girly girl stuff. sparkles and such...just don't do it for me. Please don't send stickers...I don't use them.

My Offspring

Sometimes my boy likes creating along with his Mom.

He likes mindcraft, video games, football and I am afraid to say it...girls. Loves candy (of course), and receiving things in the mail.

DISLIKES: Girlie stuff.

If anyone would like to do a one-on-one swap for something other than ATCs with him pls PM me.

Wish list

note pads (any shape, color & size) I love socks (silly huh?) scrap paper for ATCs (I can make anything work) foreign used postage stamps calendar pages to make envelopes handmade envelopes foreign money
