Hmm... What to write?
I am a stay-at-home mom of 3 kids, ages 9, 6, and 3. I have a degree in Computer Science and am a pretty big computer geek, which I'm ok with. :) I have been lucky enough to be able to work from home (evenings and weekends when my husband can watch the kids) doing web design, which keeps my brain functioning. If I didn't have that little bit of intellectual stimulation, I think I would go crazy.
I am sort of new to ATC making, but am excited about it and think I'll be able to fit it into my schedule as some much needed stress relief.
Other likes of mine include classical music, playing the piano (but I rarely get time to do it), cooking, watching cooking shows on TV, anything having to do with cooking, gardening, and tend toward minimalism as a decorating and life-style.
I am a bit of a neat freak, so anything you get from me will likely show my Type A personality. Trust me, though, I love the more free qualities to other people's artwork.
My intent as of right now is to rate everyone I receive a swap from, so if you've sent something to me and it's been a decent amount of time (to make sure it has actually gotten to me), feel free to contact me privately about a rating. I may have just overlooked it. However, I feel very torn when it comes to rating late packages. If you feel you will be late sending my package, please contact me. I understand that life happens. Also, if you do send your package late, please honestly mark the date that you sent it. It's lying if you mark it as being sent on time and it wasn't, and I do not appreciate being lied to.
Also, I try to weigh and stamp my envelopes at home as much as possible to avoid dragging the kids on yet another errand. To this end, I fully admit I might mis-calculate (although I try to err on the side of putting too much postage on). If I haven't put enough postage on something I send you and you have to pay the rest, please let me know and we can work something out. It is also good so I have a better idea of postage when I send out future envelopes. Thanks!
I don't listen to much music, but do like classical and 90's pop.
Jane Austen, Bronte sisters, Charles Dickens, Agatha Christie, Gone With the Wind (I like the book, but not the movie), Harry Potter, cookbooks (do those count?), books about food history and food science
My husband's quest in life is to get me to watch more movies, but they just don't interest me. I can't sit still for 2 hours. There are a few movies I like, such as Ocean's 11 and 12, and Men in Black.
Food Network, Scrubs, The Office, Chuck, Dirty Jobs, Man vs. Food, House Hunters
Older shows: huge fan of Animaniacs and Pinky and the Brain
Not so favorite color combination: * black and white
ATCs, stuffies, looking to do a matchbox sometime
