I'm 24 year old nerd, born and raised in Vancouver, Washington, located in the Portland Metro Area. At age 18 I graduated from Pastry School in Portland, Oregon and moved to Orlando, Florida to do a six month Baking Internship at the Grand Floridian, at Walt Disney World.
I am currently going to school to get my BA in Elementary Education. I want to teach 2nd or 3rd Grade. I also work part time. School and work keep me pretty busy so I don't get to swap as much as I used to, but I still try to swap.
I love to read! Some of my favorites include: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Through the Looking Glass, The Mists of Avalon, The Wicked Trilogy, The Twilight Series and the Harry Potter series. I typically read fantasy books, but do read other genres as well.
Whenever I need some inspiration I turn on Amelie. It is so visually stunning and the music is fantastic. It usually does the trick!
I lovelovelove to make jewelry from found objects. I also love to make Artist Trading Cards, bake, paint, make softies, and I do a little bit of sewing. I'm always up to trying new crafts!
I like just about everything!! Some of my favorite bands include: The Beatles, Coheed and Cambria, Circa Survive, Eisley, Death Cab for Cutie, The Decemberists, Nirvana, Radiohead, and lots of classic rock. :)
I love LOST, I'm definitely addicted. I love Ace of Cakes (I'd love to be doing that someday!), Dog Whisperer, Deadliest Catch, Cash Cab, House, Dirty Jobs, CSI.
I love the outdoors, especially hiking, and camping. I also really enjoy crafting. I love making (and wearing) earrings, anything old/vintage, found objects, receiving mail, magazines, old game pieces, food, old skeleton keys, stickers, tattoos, fashion, making my own envelopes and stationary, postage stamps, ephemera, things I can incorporate into my ATC's, postcards and collecting tourist-y items (like pressed pennies and other souvenirs)! I also love sweets, chocolate and coffee! I really love to play Rock Band and Guitar Hero.
I like my postcards sent naked, and written on.
Some things I dislike... Perfumes and very fragrant candles, Earl Grey tea, Rachel Ray, and Emeril... Rude people, cigarettes, traffic, mushrooms (real and fake ones!), super low cut jeans.
I always send out my swaps. If I'm ever late I will always PM my partners about it. I always rate too, though sometimes it takes me a few days to get to it. If you are ever unhappy about a rating I've given please PM me and we can discuss it.
