I am a wife and mother of two. Over the past two years, I have been in and out of the hospital for various reasons including some major pregnancy complications. This kept me from doing many of the things I love--including swapping! I have a lot of ones that I want to try and make right, but I no longer have access to the addresses. I have already been denied entry into swaps because of this, but I do hope to get back in good standing. After months on strict bed rest, two weeks in the hospital, and the past few months in recovery, I'm glad to be back!
I have many hobbies, but I spend most of my free time making jewelry. I seem to spend more time buying beads than I actually do using them, but it is a habit that is impossible to break. I've also made wood crafts (i.e. desk set) with a lot of experimentation with decoupage and one stroke painting. I have a sewing machine. I haven't actually ever used it, but I do own one. I guess I'll try any craft at least once. Since joining Swap-Bot, I've really taken to making ATCs. I am continually learning new techniques and mediums I can use based on the cards I receive. Now, everything I see (i.e. empty Kleenex box) has potential ATC use.
I really enjoy Agatha Christie mysteries. They are quick reads that don't require the reader to do much more than sit back and enjoy. When I have time to entertain myself with more intricate books, I prefer mysteries and thrillers. However, I am a sucker for a romance now and then...as long as the plot and characters are realistic.
I am a big movie fan, and my favorites change with the wind. Right now, I'm really into comic-based movies since I am an avid comic book reader/collector. So, here's my list... Iron Man Hulk and The Incredible Hulk The Blade Trilogy Grindhouse Death Proof Harlem Nights A Pyromaniac's Love Story The Breakfast Club Blazing Saddles
Okay...this list really could go on forever, so I'm going to stop here.
I am really big on reality television...although I'm generally in the closet about it. I like: Gladiator Survivor Last Comic Standing The Mole and a lot of crap on VH1 that I'll never admit to watching!
Black is probably my favorite color, but I'm not picky and would prefer not to receive everything in black. I really like plaids and polka dots (and being a big fan of black, it goes without saying that I love hounds tooth).
I collect postcards and comic books--mostly Marvel Comics. I prefer weathered postcards. There is something about the post office's abuse of these little beauties that adds to their charm. I collect all types and I am not all that picky. I really like the handmade ones and the ones people make from pics they've taken themselves.
Other than my sister-in-law, here are a few things I really don't care for much: *baby pink *vanilla scents (though the flavor is cool) *ATCs with no info on the back *snakes *spiders
