28 year old mama and wife who leads a very busy life. i've got a full time job, own/run a dj business with my hubby, plus play the mama/wife role virtually 24/7. however, i've been making an effort to take time to get tactile with self expression lately and i'm lovin' it!
I'm addicted...to ellipses. I actually cannot believe that I didn't use any in the intro paragraph! they are just so effective when trying to convey the tone of a typed sentence...at least they seem that way in my head. lol...who, me? crazy? nah...
i love music, photography, cooking, crafting, journaling, and dreaming. some random photo's by me:
(i sure wish i could center this...if anyone knows how, please do tell)
would love to receive interesting & unique postcards, buttons/pins, ATC's, etc. to post in my work cubicle, giving it a a breath of life from kind strangers who find pleasure in sending tokens via postal mail...making them much less of a stranger and my cube much less of a bore.
my daughter, Eden Lily, is 4. anything extra that you think she'd enjoy is more than welcome in my swap packages. she's a girly girl for the most part and pink is her favorite color. she loves books, drawing/coloring, fairies, butterflies, cute hair doodads (for thin hair), and has started to collect small life like animals (like they have at Michael's). That's her in the photos above...she's a doll!
what tickles my fancy?
I know I listed a ton of stuff...don't think of it as a wishlist necessarily. I'm really not a picky girl, just wanted to give you an idea of my most coveted things. As long as what you send is something you'd be happy to receive yourself, I'll be glad to be the recipient.
Any questions for me, well just lay it on me!
