If for some reason my things don't get where they are going, please let me know so I can fix the problem, or re-send. I am all about fair play and I hate hypocrisy. I believe in the Golden Rule. Always.
On to other things. My name is Vicki, and I am a 37 year old woman living in southern Oregon, USA ( a little town called White City, just outside of Medford in the Rogue Valley). I am divorced, and live with my 16 year old daughter and my boyfried of 9 years. My daughter's name is Shannon. She is the anti-teenage girl. She likes anime, musicals like Rocky Horror Picture Show, Sweeny Todd, Chicago, and Grease. Boys are very low on her radar, and she'd rather stay home by herself w/o her friends and read. I am proud of her every day. She is my blessing, and my greatest achievement. I love her to pieces!
My boyfriend's name is David.He is a member of Swap-Bot (user name Fallengeek74) He works for a company that makes x-ray film(used to be Kodak) . He spends his spare time playing WOW, watching annime (usually with Shannon) playing video games, and hanging out with me. He's great, and I feel very lucky the second time around. I love him to pieces, too!
I work in a grocery store, which is not my dream job, but it pays the bills, and sometimes leaves some money to do crafty things.
I do all kinds of crafts. I scrapbook, dabble in quilt, cross-stitch, crochet, and jewelry making. We do a lot of home-made things here, usually for x-mas, or birthdays.I try to make as many gifts as I can, as opposed to store-bought. To me, home-made means more, and more thought was put into it. I mostly alter right now. I came accross this site by accident. I was on Flickr, looking at Twilight crafts, and all of my favorite ones had Swap-Bot tags. Now I'm hooked.
I am in to all kinds of music, but my all-time favorites are U2, Duran Duran, an Muse. Anything with a really good beat. I like Blue October, The Cure, Three Days Grace, My Darkest Days, Breaking Benjaman, and did I mention Muse? Although I am not allowed to listen to the Prodigy while I drive anymore. Apparently my family thinks I drive to fast and tend to play Frogger with the car while I listen to techno.I think music should make you FEEL something, even if it's angry or sad.My parents were musicians, and I grew up exposed to everything from acid rock, to oldies, to country, Some of my earliest memories are of sitting at the kitchen table with my Play-Doh, singing along with band practice.The only kinds of music I don't care for are hard-core Rap, and Jazz. If I had to pick a favorite, I would say 80's. More new wave, less metal.
Twilight Saga!!!!! I also read mystery(Kathy Reichs, Patricia Cromwell, ect.), the Mortal Instruments and the Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare,and romances, perferebly of the steamy kind (Lori Foster is my favorite). We are a family of readers, and we have about six or seven bookshelves in our house. I will probablly read almost anything put in front of me.
The TWILIGHT SAGA!!!! (I'm noticing a trend!) I also am a big fan of the 80's movies, and John Hughes in particular. Pretty in Pink, Breakfast Club, and Sixteen Candles are the runners up after the Saga. I like Star Wars, but only the original three.I am into comedies, and I like weepy girly movies, too.I like scary horror (nothing gory), but only if David is there so I can crawl into his lap and hide!I like Princess Bride, all of the Pirates of the Carribean movies, Nightmare Before Christmas, all the Vacation movies, the Pirate Movie, and Spaceballs, Super Troopers, Fanboys,and Valley Girl.
I watch comedy shows, like Two and a Half Men and Everybody Loves Raymond. and who- dunnits, like Rizzoli and Isles, Bones, and Criminal Minds. I also love history shows, and watch a lot of TLC, History and Discovery Channel. Go Mythbusters! I read al lot, and I tend to put the tv on for background noise. I am one of those people who has a hard time just sitting to watch something w/o doing something else, and I will rent movies and then not watch them because I don't want to take the time sit and just watch. And if I do something else, I will miss the story line. Bummer.
TWILIGHT!!!!! Ok, I know I have stressed this, but let me just say that I have my bedroom decorated in Twilight. I am not kidding about how serious I am about the obsession. But I do like other things.I like retro stuff like Star Wars and old 80's cartoons. I love the colors red, white and black.I like to meet new people, and I think it's great to meet and recieve things from other places.
I don't like pink(but I DO like it in vintage), overly girly or cutesy things. I don't want to say tomboy, because I don't think that's accurate, but it's closer than girly. I am not into flowers, and rainbows, and I prefer skulls and steampunk.I do not like floral smells, and they can trigger an allergic reaction(not always, but sometimes).
This one is a hard one for me, because I don't want it to come accross as a "gimme" . I truly am happy to get anything, and a lot of the crafts mentioned here are things I've never done. I really enjoy getting things that other people have made, and to see the work behind it. Most of the fun I get out of this is trying to come up with things my partner would enjoy. So I'm going to try to do this: Anything Twilight, ATCs or supplies for, Embellishments (mainly flourishes and flowers?) Have to think more on this and add to it.
Did find something that has been a "wish for a while". If anybody wants to try to make these I would probablly trade off my only child for them! Twilight Ami
I have seen this on several profiles and I think it's important enough to include in my own. My stance is this: I completely respect your right to believe what you wish, and all I ask is that you respect my right as well. I am non-religious and I ask that I don't recieve anything religious-oriented. (I do celebrate holidays, but more from a secular standpoint) Thanks!
