EDIT: April 2013 - I have contacted everyone that has given me a 1 four years ago. I was previously known as csamara27. I had my first account merged with this one as soon as I realized that was an option. I'm not out to pull the wool over eyes, or hide. Hopefully I can move forward and mail out some lovely things to lovely new people sometime soon. Have a beautiful day, all.
EDIT: June 9/13 - I've sent out a replacement package to @rockstar20h I've been trying to communicate with her on a regular basis, but she has ignored me since I posted the package on May 8 (pic: http://distilleryimage7.ak.instagram.com/cf16a590b82911e28db822000a1f9720_7.jpg). The other 1's have been contacted via PM. I sincerely hope they log in, otherwise they are a lost cause. :(
Feel free to send me a letter. I always reciprocate. Proud member of the League of Extraordinary Penpals.
Hello! My name is Amber, I'm a 27 year old married mother of two! I married my 'high school sweetheart' on October 28, 2011. He is the manager of a small electronics store called The Source. I am a part time Library worker, I volunteer my time with Community Outreach, and I am a full time university student aiming for a degree in Indigenous Education (elementary studies).
We are the proud parents to two lovely young ladies that are 6 years old and 8 years old. They will be in grade 1 and grade 3 this fall.

I am a die hard Whovian. I love 10. Clara is my favorite companion. Ood and the Face of Boe (and also Jack Harkness) are favorite characters. Daleks and Weeping Angels are favorite villains. Am also partial to smilers, and the creepy chula-plagued children in The Empty Child.
I am a knitter and gardener! Well, I am an intermediate-advanced knitter, and only a very basic-beginner gardener, but hey, at least I haven't killed my plants yet. I practice yoga when no one's looking (read: in the morning before the house wakes up so my smallest child doesn't slap my bum like a drum set and then announce she is taking over my exercise mat for her yoga-related purposes). I am currently training to run my first 5K, but you could never tell because I still look soft and mooshy. Soooon, I will be less soft and mooshy, AND I will be running a 5K for the first time in ever. One sweaty day at a time.
I love anything green and shade of blue and purple. Washi tape! Roving, wool, hanks of lovely yarn. No acrylic yarn, not a fan. Sock DPNs or circs (1-2 mm). Books of all types. love smelly candles. stationery of all types (except memos - I can't write a letter on that). Scrapbook materials. Smashbook ephemera, dreadlock beads (homemade are always fabulous). Beads. Coffee. TEA! Handmade soaps. Guided journals. Smashbooks. Colorful ceramic skulls (our collection is from Mexico, Dominican, Australia, Italy, and Japan), and everything to do with Doctor Who.
1-2 sheet "letter sets", expired non-perishables, jewelry (my earlobes are quite a lot larger than your standard earrings, and I rarely wear necklaces of any sort), Diddl, Disney, Winnie the Pooh, Sponge Bob, Twilight, random small scraps of paper, religious material, torn/dirty items, cinnamon candy, and tourist keychains.
I take my ratings seriously, as I am trying to raise them. I plan on being here in the long term. :) If I have not rated you, I have not received anything from you. I will never rate down if there is adequate communication & no lying about send dates.
