I am a proud to be from Minnesota, I grew up on a farm along the Minnesota/Iowa border, got married and moved North! I am a Christian wife and stay-at-home homeschooling mother of two beautiful little boys, ages 3 and 5, with our third little person on the way. Unfortunately, our new baby has been diagnosed with Potter's Syndrome (formed without kidneys) and it seems that we will only get to have our new little baby for a very short time after birth. We have set a induction date of March 23rd. I have been enjoying many different swaps lately, I am trying to keep myself busy while distracting away from the all to near future. UPDATE: On 3/11/16 we welcomed our third beautiful baby boy, Liam Christian, into the world, my husband and I were blessed to spend an hour alone with him before he passed on. He was an absolutely beautiful and perfect angel. I am finishing up the swaps I am currently in and will be taking a break, maybe adding one here or there for something fun to do - more distractions...
My tiny men rule my world with ninja turtles, mickey mouse, caillou and any game that involves a ball. My oldest son, Warner, has just discovered Star Wars - and he thinks it is just the best thing ever. My youngest son, Hendrik, is a huge fan of Paw Patrol and all of the other Nick Jr. shows. I love using paper crafts/stickers/target to escape the testosterone and slip back into girl world for a bit. If you wanna check me out on Instagram, I use the same username :) danaoslin
Smashbook....making cards....scrapbooking...aspiring to be a planner girl, I use a Lilly Pulitzer large planner in "Tusk in Sun" it is beautiful! My planner is spiral bound, no dashboards :(
I do it all or at least try it all!! I love being crafty!
I love books!! I love reading books to my sons every night :) I am pretty busy on a day to day basis so I haven't read anything for fun in a long time... My favorites are Harry Potter, Twilight saga, and the Hunger Games.
I am a huge kid at heart, I love that having children means that I can drag out my old Disney movies and go to the theater for new kid movies with no shame.
I love all things Disney, my favorites are Alice in Wonderland, Little Mermaid, Sleeping Beauty, Winnie the Pooh & Wreck-it-Ralph...i could go on ( and on...) but it would get ridiculous.
Dazed and Confused.
You've Got Mail.
I love washi tape...I would appreciate washi tape samples to be sent on a playing card, they fit perfectly in my little organizer :)
My favorite color is blue, specifically light blue. I think my second favorite color is gold, but that could always change.
I love the color combo of black, white & gold, sooo pretty! Also, a new favorite combo is pink, mint green & gold.
I really like stickers, especially those that could be useful in my planner. I like tiny or larger puffy stickers, i am not a fan of other "3-D" stickers. I love scented stickers too, they remind me of my childhood :)
I love coffee, hot chocolate and black tea - breakfast teas...NOT Earl Grey please. Herbal teas are okay too :) I would love to try new or special flavors. Send me your favorite!
I like all kinds of candies, chocolate or caramels...I really only dislike any kind of licorice or raisins - even if they are chocolate covered. I don't like nuts, Snickers being the only exception. Peanut Butter is okay too.
My favorite animals are Rhinos.
Anything that is Swedish or German.
I just love anything in the vintage style.
Project Life Cards and other journaling cards.
Target Dollar Spot.
Used postage stamps - especially foreign or just beautiful- I would absolutely love to get them as extras in any swap.
...did I mention Vintage?! such a favorite! :) postcards, die cuts, card stock, stickers...anything with a vintage subject. old cameras, typewriters, housewives, food, clocks...it is all very good.
Everything Harry Potter.
Anything Alice in Wonderland.
Charlie Brown and the whole Peanuts gang. ESPECIALLY A Charlie Brown Christmas! :)
Winter is my favorite season. Christmas is my favorite holiday, I have my house decorated to the 9's for almost 3 whole months. I love my tree, it is just like a department store, all shades of blue and silver and a little white. I decorate the rest of my house in more traditional colors; red, green and gold.
I love the Golden Girls!! My mother and I have watched it together since I was tiny, and I still watch it to this day...we relate things happening in real life with Golden Girls quotes, it's delightful.
Big Bang Theory.
Most of the TLC programming.
Alaskan Bush People.
Hallmark Channel movies on the weekend :)
I am not picky with the subject of a postcard, if I had to pick, I would choose a map or one of the "Greetings from...". I do very much enjoy the very touristy postcards - large state names (bold outlined letters with pictures inside) are the coolest :) If I were to have a wishlist, it would very simply include postcards of San Francisco, especially the Golden Gate Bridge. Also, I once received a Rhino postcard and it really made my day, I would LOVE more! I prefer my postcards sent in an envelope, naked only when the swap is specific.
Please drop me a message if I have forgotten to rate you. I know how important a rating can be :) I am very often pulled away from my desk by my boys and lose my train of thought.
Also, I probably won't respond directly from the swap-bot messenger, it never lets me send a message or even reply...I almost consider it a miracle when it does. Feel free to send an email if you can - or leave me your email in the s.b. messages, i can always respond that way! :)
