About Me

I'm single, never been married. I have 3 cool little doggies; two yorkie brothers Barnaby and Peter Parker and a poodle Kilroy. I love dogs and dog things. Poodle and Yorkie stuff for obvious reasons. And along with the dogs I like Spiderman stuff too. Not only do I have Peter Parker, my first Yorkie was Spiderman. So you understand the theme.

I enjoy bike riding we have some really good trails around where I live and I don't have to go on the open road.

I also like to go walking and take the dogs with me. When they don't go, I walk/jog.
I am into exercising whether my weight corresponds with that or not. If you have exercise DVD's that you have no use for (its funny how many end up on ebay) talk to me, maybe we can work something out and make a trade. I also like finding new websites with good exercises or exercise mags etc. Always looking for something to keep me from getting bored with it. I have a gym membership but I sometimes hate it! But I do it anyway.

I work at a pharmaceutical company in a quality control lab. I enjoy working although some days it really is work getting up to go in. I appreciate that I have a job and good benefits.

I garden in the summer time and work in the yard. I am into ponding (I have a 7400 gallon koi pond in my back yard). don't ask how many I have I stopped counting and they kept having babies. I wish they'd stop. I like fish stuff. I like flowers, nature, and garden stuff.

I also am into scrapping, making cards, writing letters, poems, and journaling.

I like sciencey nerdy things.

I love wine and like wine accessories that help me with my wine drinking and collecting. I like the sweet end of the wine spectrum.

I have a Jeep Grand Cherokee. I've wheeled it before and will wheel it again, ie I take it "off road" I like Jeep stuff. and YES it is a Jeep Thang, you wouldn't understand!

Likes: textured papers,
those papers you tear and they have a core color,
stickers, even though I got rid of a BUTT load of them before I got into this card and scrapbooking kick.
dog stuff big time.
animals in general,
pond/koi things.
geeky science stuff.
colors, pretty much all books recipes cookbooks

knick knacks/ dust collectors, been thru that phase of our lives in this house and have WAY to many that are pretty much not worth anything anymore which is sad. We do still buy/get Wicked Witch stuff from the Wizard of Oz. That's my mom's roll model and we do still get some Paul Shores. DIRT Tea (not a tea drinker, sorry). If there is a swap that requires tea or coffee don't feel like you HAVE to send me some, I'm happy with just the letters. If you WANT to send something some gum or some mints would be nice, no melon or fruit punch flavors. Or even some of those little packets to mix in with bottles of water, no fruit punch or melon, just don't like those flavors. FREAKING winter weather, snow, and ice. When will winter end?

Favorite Books

I like to read. I like the sentimental love stories like Robert James Waller, Richard Paul Evans, Nicholas Evans, and Kathy Reichs. I keep up with most of them when a new ones as they comes out. I also liked the Davinci Code and some of Dan Browns.

Please don't

Don't be a flaker, I don't flake on others, so I don't like it done to me. I assure you, I will always honor my commitments. If something gets mixed up or crossed in the email or snail mail, contact me. I will make it right. And please, remember to rate. Assuming I can figure out which swap I need to rate you for because you were fabulous enough to write it on the swap I will promptly rate you. If for any reason life kicks my ass and throws me a curve ball, I will communicate with those I owe swaps to and the coordinators as time allows. I have always kept track of what I send and what I receive but am just now staring to keep track of when I get rated. Please let me know if you do not receive something. Had a few things come back and hope I have the problem corrected!

Favorite Music

I listen to a lot of different musics. All have their own time and place, ie I didn't like listening to classical music when I was on nights and fighting to stay awake as is. I don't like degrading and cursing in rap but there are a lot of good rappers out there that can without using the profanity. Not too much I don't like.

Favorite Television

NCIS, NCIS Los Angeles, Bones, American Pickers, Pawn Stars, One Tree Hill, Harry's Law, Castle to name a few.

My favorite swaps

Honestly, who wouldn't love to do stuff like this all day long but alas it's not possible. I have to work for a living and swaps can get away from you and you spend WAY more than you figured you would before you know it. I do like the swaps with notecards, postcards, ATC's, quotes, and handmade cards, and writing/pen-pals. I also like some of the online things. Those are FREE but time consuming as well when you take into account rating properly. I'm sure I will add to my list as I go.

Life's curve balls....

I'm trying to hit some of the curve balls life is throwing me! I'm holding my own but still working hard at it and going broke trying to. My little doggy has been under the weather. Plz say prayers for Peter Parker and his human mom too.

Thanks so much for the fun postcards and note you sent awhile ago. What a fun surprise. I've been meaning to send you a little something back, but since time keeps sneaking away from me, I better finally acknowledge it here too. Thanks so much, and I am glad you liked the ATCs. Hope you are having a happy spring!

Spiderman is the ONLY Superhero that is a photographer during his normal life, alas this is my reason. Spiderman is by far the BEST Superhero - in my eyes!
