But I am back now! Ready to get back into swapping as ever!
Hi there everyone! Welcome to my Profile! A few things about me...
I am Happily Married to the Best Man in the world! We are planning to start a family close to the end of this year after we honeymoon in Disneyland!
I LOVE my Copic Markers! This is going to be a bad thing for Hubby...LOL
In the evenings, you will usually find me enjoying a cup of tea, my most recent knitting project (OR cross stitching project!) and a Disney Movie.
I have a Professional Cooking Degree, and I enjoy cooking at home for my hubby and others greatly. Not cooking for a living anymore has helped me re-invent my passion for food :)
I have incredibly sensitive skin, so nothing highly perfumed if you are sending me soaps or lotions. (THX)
My favourite sweet treats are Purdy's English Toffee, Ferror Rocher chocolates and of course who doesn't like Lindor Truffles?
If I had the chance...I would live off of Asian Cooking! Japanese...Thai...Korean..Chinese ALL OF IT. lol
I believe in a happy and healthy lifestyle! So I do my best to stay active! I visit a gym (hopefully regularly lol) and my husband and I enjoy fresh ingredients in my cooking.
I love to GEOCACHE! If you do not know what that is, or if you DO know what that is we should connect!
I LOVE animals! From the fuzzy kinds to the scaly kinds! (Just as long as they have no more than 4 legs I am FINE lol)
Shopping for gifts for other people is one of my favourite things to do!
One More Thing I would like to ADD....
If there is a time where you do not receive a Swap or Tag from me, please be respectful and give me (and other swappers) the benefit of the doubt. This means that before rating a 3 or a 1 attempt to contact your partner FIRST, and not give your rating first "to let them know". Most swappers will do their best to rectify what is in their control. The Postal system is not always in the best working order, ESPECIALLY during the holiday season. So please DO keep this in mind. Treat and Message others the way you want and expect to be treated and messaged. :)
At the moment I am sticking with Swaps for Tea, Handmade Cards, Knitting Supplies, Cross Stitching, Small Swaps Only
There are afew specific crafts that I stick to, but I am always willing and interested to try different things!
- Cross Stitching!
- Handmade Cards
I really like to make bookmarks, cards/postcards, fridge magnets, small blankets etc...anything to keep my hands busy :)
For the moment I am mainly switching between Cross Stitch and Knitting ^^
I also have the wish to learn how to quilt! I want to become a better sewer, and I thought that this might be a way to start! (UPDATE: I have begun my first quilting project as of today 8/9/2014! So excited! Its a Christmas themed table runner, and its going to be amazing! lol)
My husband is a painter. Not for a living. Just as a hobby. He does acrylic on canvas. He is quite good at it! You wouldn't think that a construction worker had the soft side to paint. He also loves to sketch.
I love my Artistic man! ^^
I have also recently learned how to Knit! My maid of honor got me into it...what have you done?? lol...not only do I have enough scrapbooking stuff to to choke a horse, I now have more than enough yarn to knit my self into retirement lol)
EDIT: Now we can add cross stitch supplies to that never ending list of craft supplies....LOL
I love music, can't go a day with out listening to something or I would literally die. I listen to just about anything, but at the moment I am very into Pitt-Bull. I love Rihanna too! But my favourite of all time would have to be Billy Joel, Bryan Adams and Savage Garden.
TV shows at the moment are Criminal Minds, Bones, Unforgettable, CSI, DR. WHO, NCIS, Castle, NCIS:LA, NCIS:NewOrleans, Big Bang Theory and Once Upon a Time.
I love to cook. Hubby is spoiled rotten, as he gets homemade baking to take to work with him...lol. He is also now the owner of his own construction siding business. His old boss sold him the company. :)
Thank you in Advance!
- Post Cards (I am interested in starting to get into more post card swaps, and I have no idea around where I live to buy post cards that aren't touristy, some help to start off my collection would be amazing! ^^)(To My Fellow Canadian Swappers!: I would love to start a collection to get a PC from every province/major Canadian City, easy profile goodie ideas!)
- Sticky Address labels With my username and address!
Please Note: If you are sending me paper scraps/cardstock/patterned paper, please send something that you would be willing to receive! I recently had someone send me torn pieces of paper and tiny bits that were useless...so please please! Be mindful of what you are sending in that nature. Thank you!!
I was really sad that I had to make one of these lists....but alas...
The two swaps that I was Flaked on Originally have been rectified. Each swapper was rated a 3.
@cassiecards - has been found to be a flaker, and has disappointed two girls in the Secret Sister Swap Games that I run. If she is a member of your group, ban her.
@nlgrudis - User is suspended, and has not been online for more than a month. I was flaked on for a WTA prize dating back to April.
@dukono - User is suspened also, and flaked me for the same April WTA game.
@Lozzabee - Flaked on sending out a prize for a "Lucky Post" game that I won in February. Suspended.
Ok, so sadly I have been going through all of my "SENT" swaps, and alot of them I have not Archived yet because I have not received a rating. This being said...I decided to make a list...
@Nathalie for Christmas Card - International (Contacted many times, still nothing) UPDATE: I was finally contacted 2 YEARS later, with a 1 rating. No message, just a rating and comment "letting me know" that she had not received her Xmas Card. This rating has since been removed after I sent multiple messages, and is now being resolved. :)
@bananasock for December Tea Pot Swap (Partially suspended)
@Tajsa for Tea+Notecard swap
@rootbear for Mail Art for Beginners 2 (Has not been online since Oct.6/2011, and has no ratings.)
@VintageDreams for Charmed/Witchy Mail Art (Partially suspended)
@ladyofunicorns for Disney Pinterest Board Swap - Has been online every day since I sent the swap message, yet has not opened ANY of the messages I have sent. I have left notes on her profile as well as sending her an EMAIL just in case she checks that! How hard is it to open a message and give a rating for an ELECTRONIC swap? I just don't unserstand the non-rating or flaking for type 1 swaps.
More to be added I'm sure...
I feel I need a spot to keep track of my tags so far, and to make sure that people know that I have not forgotten about them!! ^^
Tags OWED: -Technically I still have things owed to me, but I believe that it has been more than 4 months, not to stress over it, everyone is human.
Tags OWING: -As far as I know, I have sent everything that I owe out.
