made it safely to georgia! staying in savannah until april 12th. i DO have an internet connection, but if i don't reply ASAP, i'm probably on the beach. and if i don't rate you as soon as your swap should have been received, do not fret- i am on the beach and my mail is aaaallllllllllll the way back in michigan. did i mention, it's 75 degrees and i'm on the beach? it's 34 back home!
11 MONTHS SOBER for matt and myself!!!!!! April brings 1 year and, yes, WE ARE PROUD. the struggle is never easy but i'm loving and living life now to an extent i never knew existed.
10/3/11 well, after a massive blizzard, shortly followed by a killer ice storm, ALL RESENDS HAVE NOW BEEN SENT! all PMs are caught up, WTAs, tags, etc that have gotten a) eaten by the abominable snowman, b) returned to me stamped "destroyed due to in climate weather" or c) arrived to their new home, damaged HAVE BEEN RESENT. i have spent hours upon hours recanting for the AWOL envies, repreparing, reassembling and doing my absolute best to send what was sent initially and to properly communicate with my partners and keep them posted. everyone has been wonderful, and i'm reminded every single day how kick-ass all of you botters are for bearing with me during the insanity and chaos. yes, i have accumulated some not-so-pretty ratings, and i FULLY ACCEPT MY 3s. my current 1 is NOT permanent and i'm looking so forward to @PAStryloVER receiving her resend, as she is AWESOME and deserves a package as rockin' as the one she sent me! as i said, to the absolute best of my knowledge, EVERYTHiNG has been resent, but i am only human, and if i've made a mistake, or missed an envie that got attacked by winter, please PM me. thank you, and everything will be back to normal on my end ASAP!
14/1/11 i am currently dropping from several of the groups i am in. it's time for me to more fully devote to the groups i'm super active in, and let go of the ones i am not, or that are inactive groups altogether. please, do not take it personally if i've left your group- i just need to downsize for a while.
i am not to be taken at face value. what you see is not what you get. i am an old lady in the body of a 24 yr old...and i LOVE it. i AM my grandma. i never go "out". i talk about "partying" which is my sarcastic way of saying "matt and i are watching pure prairie league on you tube and dancing around in pjs like goofballs". i have EXTREME family values, and they're very "old school". i'm entirely in my element when i'm making dinner, crafting, and playing board games with the family. i'm simple in that manner. my dream is to greet my man at the door every day when he gets home from the office, sit down at the family table for meals, and watch a movie in the evening, before putting our daughter to bed together and reading a story to her every night. i have almost all of this and more. soon, hopefully shortly after the new year, i will be back to my stay at home momness. i am very lucky and i always say so, out loud, several times a day.
12/12/10 ...almost to 8 months...now confidently not craving a beer. this is my prided accomplishment of the year, and because i've come this far, i've chose to not make a new years resolution, but to keep up the boozelessness.
10/14/2010: "Honey, you are very talented. But I think we need to discuss you learning to do crafts completely independent of glitter..." Jeez, babe...it was SO NOT my intent to spill it all over the bed. Oops (teeheehee mwahaha!) :)
the most important things you need to know...
-i swear incessantly...sorry ahead of time
-i smoke like a chimney
-i hate water and i drink disgusting amounts of coffee and energy drinks...oops.
-I LOVE YOUR ART. even if you think you suck at it. chances are, you're better at it than me, and i appreciate 110% of your gift to me, especially if it's from your heart.
hi world! my name is savannah but you can call me savy. i'm 24, mom of one amazing, happy, crafty, smart 6 yr old, clara. i am happily engaged to my absolute soulmate :) he is matthew...matt...and if it's any indication of just how very much we are soulmates, we even have the same last name, which is NOT a common one, at that. he is my lifeline.
i am very obsessed with stickers, fbs, penpalling, the colour green, making stationary, hrc, six feet under, ani difranco, empire records, glitter, urban decay, 2nd hands, mortuary science, cars, kittens, and food :) i work at a gas station... woo hoo lol... i'm a very unique, silly, and eccentric person. i'm huge into gay rights and breastfeeding advocacy. i'm obsessed with these causes and will ramble forever and a day about them. i LOVE to send extras in my swaps, and it has nothing to do with the hearts (though they're lovely of course!) because making someone else smile always brightens my day... i'm just about the most open minded person on earth... as my pen pals know, they can talk to me about everything, as i generally do to them. i babble a lot. my crafts, writing, stickers, etc, got me through a very hard time with my bipolar and depression over the recent past.
Oh, I never stop talking. Sorry.
i LOVE ani difranco, tori amos, jay brannan, gin blossoms, rush, springsteen, pure prairie league, collin raye, garth brooks, meat loaf, a perfect circle, tears for fears, blues traveler, and too many more to list...
the perks of being a wallflower by stephen chbosky!!!
empire records, the wizard of oz, clerks, clerks II, donnie darko, cruel intentions, the squid and the whale, adam, american beauty, rent (i've also seen it on broadway 8 times across the US), anything from the 80s and early 90s!!
six feet under, food network, history and military, sabrina the teenage witch, home improvement, full house, king of queens, two and a half men, pawn stars, american pickers, intervention, hoarders, storage wars, ax men, reba, shameless, oddities...
i have recently made the decision to make something all for myself! i'm working on decorating a journal i received from a swap, with all savy-esque pics, designs, sticker, clippings, etc. if you have any ideas, i would much appreciate them!
note i keep pics of my art / projects on my facebook, under the album: art. if you like surprises, don't look!!
stickers! making stationary, envelopes. i'm very generous to my pen pals b/c i LOVE sending little goodies :) recently did my first decoupage and it was very amateur-looking but i'm proud nonetheless.
i have now very rapidly gotten addicted to ATCs, harcore!! i occasionally take hours to get started, but once i start, i'll pump out 10-20 easily, and then have to force myself to stop! i do the same with handmade envies...i can make them for hours upon hours!
unless we have set up a private swap for some specific thing, DO NOT SPEND MONEY ON ME. and i am so serious. the ooga booga monster will blow boogers at you b/c i told her to and i'm da boss. so there. hand-me-downs, destashes, handmades, and here-i-don't-need / will-never-use-this goodies are the best :)
envelopes (i LOVE handmade ones)
anything GREEN (colour)
six feet under
anything eccentric- i'm all about the bright colours , 80s...)
indian spices, foods, drinks...
slams /SBs /Decos
gay rights / HRC things
anything plaid or paisley
anything hazelnut, maple, or coconut
anything from trader joes (anything! i mean it!)
hockey (go red wings!)
14/1/11 i am currently OVERWHELMED by loose stickers but always looking for sheets!
any cosmetics that aren't urban decay (not so much b/c of the label but b/c i'm allergic to nearly everything else)
anything related to celery (actual phobia here...yes, i'm an odd one, but i will freak out!)
die-cut tags (though handmade eccentric ones are great)
twilight (or any other fad vampire-esque trend of the moment)
plain FBs (i LOVE n&n decos / slams / SBs, though!)
and beets. don't like beets a whole hell of a lot. but if you're trying to decide whether to send me celery or beets, go ahead and send me the beets.
i hate capitalizing the letter "i" i don't know what it is, other than some weird freak out OCD thing...it's quite funny though...miss supergrammarnazi cannot capitalize the letter "i" without getting creeped out.
14/1/11 i would like to do 1 etsy swap per month, and am open to anywhere from $3-$30. PM me if you're interested. dates and such are always open in my book.
always up for private swaps! just PM me!
currently, i have A LOT of solid colour card stock and scrapbooking paper, 12x12 and 8 1/2x11 to get rid of. i am looking for 12x12 printed and unique paper.
clara ellen oh what to say about a 6 year old girl who loves life... clara is a very typical yet very atypical 6 year old. she loves everything... particularly sponge bob, dora, strawberry shortcake, hannah montana, and all the other shows that completely annoy us as adults. she makes ATCs, "tiny houses", cards, and my wall is lines with drawings from her. if you happen to have a child that would like to exchange with her, please PM me for a private swap!
matty matt is a very unique, deep, caring, genuinely good person at heart. one of those people you just don't meet every day. he's very creative. he's a gunsmith, and we have an entire wing FULL of antique and rare gun parts. he's fascinated by taking them apart and putting them back together. matt has aspergers and i embrace every aspect of him. although he's a gunsmith and knows everything there is to know about guns, he does NOT hunt. which is equally strange for being a michigander. in fact he has a very deep love for animals of every sort. he rarely even eats them. yep, a man that will eat veggies on his pizza, or just cheese, over meat anyday.
together, the three of us live with his amazing parents, in their huge mansion, that they inherited, when they moved to michigan, from muncie / albany, indiana about 3 years ago.
