About Me

I have been married for 23 years and have 2 children, a girl age 21 who is in her third year of college, full time, interested in forensics/criminal justice, and is working at the Livonia police department full time, and a boy age 19 who is into video games, driving and is in his first year of college and is interested in becoming a mechanical engineer. My husband collects any type of unusual lighters, keys and clocks, and he just got a Ninja coffee maker which he's loving. I like to garden, veggies, herbs and flowers, and spend time outdoors in the warm months. I keep very involved with my family and friends and enjoy writing letters, crafting and playing on the computer. I like to cook and try new recipes. We enjoy backyard campfires and camping also. I love stationery, labels and pens. Like M&M characters and merchandise, anything cooking related, anything unusual or different, etc. There's not much I don't like! I love to bargain shop, and dollar store and craft shopping, magazines, tea with caffeine (not coffee), Halloween & Christmas, summer and hot weather, hand lotions, lip balm, cool websites, retro, food, nuts, chips & dips, and anything handmade. I love anything different and unusual, "off the wall" and out of the ordinary! I don't have a favorite color-love them all! I do prefer bold, earthy, bright colors over pastel colors. We have cats and a dog named Chewie (aka Chewbacca), that is spoiled and loved. He is a pug/boston terrier mix, and brindle colored.

Favorite Music

I like many kinds of music, but I especially like classic rock, oldies and the older disco music. I like lots of different kinds of music from Aerosmith, The Cars, Elvis, Rolling Stones, Bon Jovi, and any older rock to easy listening and Motown music, to Maroon 5, Lady Gaga, Adam Lambert and Katie Perry. Basically I like anything from the 60's until now. I grew up with music and have been to alot of concerts.

Favorite Movies

I don't have a favorite movie, but like to watch comedy and dramas. I usually don't care for action-packed movies. I also like mysteries, thrillers, and horror.

Favorite Television

Grey's Anatomy, Dancing with the Stars, Ellen, Switched at Birth, This is Us, and Fresh off the Boat.

Favorite Crafts

I love simple and general crafts.I like to go to craft and stationery sites on the computer. I like to make computer and paper crafts. I like to print stationery, address labels, enclosures, cards etc. I'll try almost any craft. I love to crochet. I like "off the wall" crafts. Love to make recycled crafts. I really enjoy receiving handmade items, they are my favorite!

About Me

My husband and I take care of his elderly parents at home. My kids help out alot too. Mom likes cats, flowers and plants, crocheting, and playing games on the computer. Dad watches alot of T.V. and they both love their candy and desserts.

Comment: This is the second time I have received this swap from you, and definitely the second time you really outdid yourself! I had SO much fun going through everything, I can't believe you put so much effort into each item. Keep this part a secret, but I was just in a big item profile-based swap, but I found far more things I liked & were related to my interests in your swap (shh!!)! I think everything in your box was just awesome, & I really, really am indebted to your generosity. Hopefully you will be my partner next!!
Response: Thanks for the rating and I'm glad you had fun with everything!

Comment: WOW !!!! What a package !! Thank you so much. You sure found all my favorites. The X stitch items are exactly what I do. Just finished pillow cases with little piggy's on them. The AVON jar is great. It will go on the shelf with the others AVON. The silly things made me chuckle. I used to eat Vienna Sausages way back when I was "really" poor and they were cheap. The coloring book is perfect for me and I've never seen cards like these. Really cute. Thank you so much for every thing. Loved it all.
Response: I grew up on Vienna Sausages as a kid! I'm glad you had fun with the package! Thanks for the rating!

Comment: Thank you so much for thoughtful swap. It smelled very heavy of cigarette smoke though. Edit - I'm not sure exactly what the scent is but there's a strong odor on every item that doesn't smell pleasant which is unfortunate because you included so many wonderful things. I have everything trying to air out now.
Response: Thank you for the rating. I don't know how it smelled of cigarette smoke, as we have a smoke-free house because we take care of my husband's elderly parents who are 88 and 91. I do put my swaps together outside, where we have a chiminea, fire pit, and bbq grill. I'm sorry.

Comment: This by far is my favorite swap, as I am sure I mentioned before, lol I LOVED your package. You sent something from all my favorites, loved the cookies & candy, & yes I ate them already lol & the sea monkeys will be hatching sometime today after 4. I loved them as a kid & I still do, they are on a shelf above my craft desk.Also coloring is one of my favorite things to do, I am so glad they decided to give it a more grown-up title "art therapy" lol so now I don't feel so silly. Anyways thank you for so many fun things. I always love swapping with you, & thank you so much for always hosting this great swap. Hugs to you :)
Response: I am so glad you had fun with this swap. I love all the "childhood, silly" things myself.I will be hosting the next month's swap here in a bit, and hopefully you will join. Thanks for the heart and compliments!
