About Me

I'm Crystal, a stay at home Mom to two crazy wonderful munchkins. I homeschool both of my children Madison (9) and Logan (6), we are in our first year and loving every minute of it (even the minutes I lock myself in the bathroom just to get a minute alone, kidding...but seriously)!

I have lived in Oklahoma for roughly 13 years but was born and raised on the West Coast. I missed it deeply! We are hoping to move Northwest next summer, counting down the days!

I am an animal lover! We have three dogs; Lucy, Dewey and Bella. A tortoise named Sheldon Horatio. We just got bunnies, Stormageddon & Adipose! They are so sweet and fluffy!! I would have more and will once we buy land. :) I dream to have a tiny farm.

I love plants and flowers, I made a little veggie garden on the side on our home. It's my baby. :)

Feel free to message me if you have any questions. :) My Mommy brain is jumbled, tangled, wibbly wobbly sooo it's possible I have forgotten something

**Any swap I do I put my heart in each one and will only send you items I would love myself. I will always send my swaps so if you have any issues I would appreciate it if you let me know before you rate. I WILL ALWAYS rate on time. I usually rate the day I receive the swap in the mail. If you have not get a rating from me it is because I have not received the swap. **

Favorite Music

I am a rocker at heart. I like many different genre' though but I am not a fan of whiny Country or dirty Rap.


The Beatles, Three Doors Down, Maroon 5, Janis Joplin, Led Zeppelin, Metallica, ACDC, Queen, Dashboard Confessional, Eric Clapton

Favorite Television & Movies

I am a Science Fiction junkie though I watch I mixture of shows...Currently watching Doctor Who, Supernatural, Grey's Anatomy (only because I've watched it from the beginning and want to know how it ends), Ghost Adventures, The Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, the Walking Dead, Ghost Whisperer, Long Island Medium (I love Teresa, she's adorable!!)..

Fav channels, The History Channel, Travel Channel, SyFy, Bio, BBC and A&E.

Books -Science fiction, Mysteries, Biographies, Drama, Folklore, Historical fiction...just about everything but I'm not crazy about romance novels.

Movies -I love movies in general, not crazy about Horror movies much these days. Not since having children. I don't have the typical "favorites", I consider a favorite movie to be movies I can watch over and over and not tire of them.

Oh, and I also love Dr. Who along with the fact you named your bunnies Stormageddon and Adipose. lol

Seems we have quite a few things in common.

Hi Crystal--what a lovely comment to see on my wall. I don't mind if you follow me on Instagram and it warms my heart that you enjoy my artwork. Thank you so much! :D

Maybe we'll cross paths in a swap one day.

As an aside, I'm addicted to argyle. There should be some sort of rehab for it or something. :P
