About Me

I am from a small town in North Carolina, United States. I work as a writing tutor where I help community college students write papers. I have worked in the education setting for 8 years.

I was married on June 22, 2013 to a wonderful man who I met on an online dating site. He is the love of my life.

We do not have human children, but we have many animal children. We have three dogs and two cats. My dream is to one day own our own house and land and have a farm.

My other dream is to have a homeless shelter or a place for foster care children who have aged out of the system to transition to adulthood.

About My Husband

My husband's name is Matthew. He works for a logistics company that makes computer servers. He is geeky and I love that about him. He has this huge heart and loves helping others. He treats me like a queen and deserves the world.

Favorite Crafts

I absolutely love to craft. My husband bought me a Cricut cutting machine last year. It is the best gift I have ever received. It is so cool all the things I can create and do with it. I love making shirts, stickers, decals, shadow boxes, cards, and so much more with it. I have recently gotten into paper crafting more, and I absolutely love it. My craft room is usually exploding with scraps and do dads from my paper crafting.

I love making people gifts, and I felt that this would be a good outlet for it.

Things I Like

Crafting supplies- ribbon, tapes, buttons, markers, stickers, scrap paper, card stock, little jewels, things to bedazzle cards and letters with, washi tape (I've only just discovered the wonders of washi), Xacto Scissors, If you are a vinyl crafter and want to trade vinyl or HTV scraps we can do that too.

Winnie the Pooh- I am a huge fan of Pooh Bear. I always have been. I collect stuffed winnie the poohs (and his other pals from the One Hundred Acre Woods). I also collect anything pooh related.

Disney: My favorite is the Little Mermaid, but I like all Disney.

Charlie Brown: I absolutely love Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Linus, and Pig Pen. All of the other Charlie Brown characters I love as well.

Animals: Pigs, Deer, Panda Bears, Polar Bears, Otters, Koalas, Kangaroo, practically any baby animal, etc.

Little things- I know that sounds odd, but I love miniatures.

Pop Figures- I have only recently started collecting these, but I love their big heads.

Color: Pink, Purple, Yellow

Things I cannot find from my hometown. I love trying new foods, looking at postcards from other places, etc.

Stories- I love to hear your stories. What happened to you today? How did your parents come up with your name? What do you find annoying? What is your town's claim to fame? I love people and find them so interesting.

I would love it if you decide to send me things my husband would like as well. He loves Super Hero movies, Dr. Who, anything computer/nerdy, an just learning things. He enjoys coffee flavored anything as well.

Favorite Television

The Office, Parenthood, This is Us, The Golden Girls, Most Crime Drama shows, 7th Heaven, Most any cooking show.

Favorite Music

I love all types of Christian music.

I also love some classical, jazz, soulful music.

I am a fan of Michael Buble, acapella groups and the like.

Things I don't like

Even though I am southern, I do not like "typical' southern things. I don't like tea or grits.

I only like to smell coffee, but I don't care for drinking it.

I don't like clowns, dolls, things with beards, masks, or Halloween anything really (other than cutesy costumes, kiddy spiders, pumpkins).

Wish List

Patterned paper-scraps are fine

Vinyl-HTV or regular-again, scraps are fine

Bling-Jewels, Washi

Comment: I don't appreciate you pushing your religion on me like this & no I do not wish to message you about your savior...I have my own religion.
Response: I truly was not pushing my religion on you at all. As I said in my note, I never even knew who I was sending to when I made it. It was just something that I felt would be pretty to make. After partners were assigned, it was too late to make another pocket letter. It said in the description any theme, so I just went with it. After reading your profile, I realized you may take it harshly, and I didn't mean for that at all. I sincerely do apologize. That was really not my intention. As I said, the letter, the pocket letter, everything was made way ahead of time as the activity described for us to do. I didn't want you to receive yours late, and I packed it with tons of non religious goodies, so I hope you at least enjoyed them. I am so sorry you felt that way. It was truly not my intention. Happy Swapping. Thanks for the rating regardless of how you feel about the letter.

Hi Holly... I honestly am just getting the hang of this and can't find an option to do the rating lol. But I just received you 20x2 sticker swap. I must say Lisa Frank are my faves 😊. Thank you very much

Profile Hello #2 Hi Holly, I'm sending you a big Texas sized hug from Houston. I'm so happy you have found Swap-bot and joined us. We have lots of fun. Oh, I'm jealous. I want one of the new Cricuts. I have the very first one and it never has really worked or at least not like I want it to. It could be operator error. Who knows? LOL! I LOVE washi tape also. I'm not sure how we ever lived without it. We have a washi store about 3 blocks from our house. He always has 1100-1200 styles on hand. It's almost better than a candy store. Happy Swapping! Diane

Profile Hello #2: Hello Holly. I was just looking at your huge profile page. There is a lot to read. Nice to see that you just discovered washitape. It is something I use in my art journals, planner, everywhere. But be careful with them: they tend to get babies. Yes, they keep on multiplying and you will get more and more in your house. At least happy swappings in the future and greetings from Holland, Cindy
