About Me

UPDATE- 2/1/19- I have reopened my group, AATW. I start a new job on 2/7. Hopefully, they will honor my request for a 6am-2pm weekday schedule.

My father-in-law is not doing well, so there is quite a bit of stress going on with my family. My son is also have school and health issues that we are working on. That being said, I am going to try to be more present on Swap-Bot for as long as I can. If I need to take a step back at any point in the near future, I will update my profile.

NOTE OF WORTH: COMMUNICATE WITH ME IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM! 'nuff said....

PLEASE SEND ALL EMAIL (unless it involves attachments) AND PINTEREST SWAPS TO ME VIA PM HERE. MY EMAIL LIKES TO PUT THINGS IN THE TRASH BIN WITHOUT ME LOOKING AT THEM AND THEN DELETE THEM IF I DON'T LOOK AT THEM WITHIN A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF TIME. Thanks for understanding!

ON HOLD AT THE MOMENT -I would like to do private swaps for stickers, postcards, ATCs, note cards, washi tape samples, Pinterest boards, Pocket Letters (both 3 and 9 pockets), flip books, etc. If you would like to swap with me, please PM me! Right now I can't send anything internationally! I just don't have the money for postage!

I am a mom of two. My daughter has moved out on her own and is getting married in September! My son is a freshman this year. He is no longer in Boy Scouts because we were essentially kicked out of his troop because we wanted it run the correct way and they were unwilling to change. 2/24/16- My son achieved his First Class Rank tonight! He had to pass his swim test and after months he has finally done it! WE ARE SO PROUD OF HIM!

We have a Pomeranian named T.Bear. Our mini dachshund named Smalls passed away on September 14, 2014 in my arms. We have two new mini dachshunds; a black and tan boy named Brody and his half-sister, a red female named Belle. They are a little over a year old.

My husband and I have been together for 20 years and married for 18. We got married on July 4, 1998. On July 2, 2011 we renewed our vows at a special ceremony with family and friends.

Favorite Music

My favorite music is country. I like Chris Cagle, Toby Keith, Keith Anderson, Trace Adkins, Big & Rich, Montgomery Gentry, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton, Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, Reba McEntyre, Brantley Gilbert, Jason Aldean.

I also like Pink, Elton John, Queen, Adele, old 60's and 70's rock and 80's pop.

I do not like rap, metal, or even a lot of modern rock/pop.

Favorite Books

I am into sci-fi/fantasy books. My favorite authors are Anne McCaffrey, Katherine Kurtz, Tamora Pierce, and Mercedes Lackey.

I also like historical romances. My favorite authors are Jude Devereaux and Catherine Coulter. If it's old west, pirates, old English, etc. I like it.

I am slowly branching out into paranormal romances and like mainly wolf/cat themes along with some vampires.

I have a Kindle Fire. I would love some recommendations for free books that I can get for it. I love to read and the Kindle makes it so easy to do it anywhere!

Favorite Movies

My most favorite movies of all time are-

Dirty Dancing (#1)

d

10 Things I Hate About You (#2)

t

A Knight's Tale (#3)

k

The Princess Bride (#4)

p

The Goonies (#5).

g

I like romantic comedies, comedies, chic flicks; Made of Honor, Maid in Manhattan, The Wedding Planner, The Back Up Plan, Failure to Launch, The Wedding Date, Hope Floats, Two Weeks Notice, etc. I also like some sci-fi/fantasy movies; Labyrinth, Legend, Serenity, Mists of Avalon, Highlanders, etc. I do not like horror or scary movies at all.

Favorite Television

I love to watch Bones (love David Boreanez!), Castle (love Nathan Fillion!), Law & Order:SVU, CSI:New York, CSI, Criminal Minds, The Big Bang Theory, Elementary, Body of Proof, Once Upon A Time, Glee, Firefly, Farscape, Moonlight, 21 Jumpstreet, Young Riders, seaQuest, Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman, Copper, Ripper Street, Scorpion, and Angel.

We have Netflix and Hulu. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! We no longer have cable.

Favorite Crafts

I like to do plastic canvas crafts and scrapbooking. I would love some new, easy plastic canvas patterns. I try to be crafty, but I can't draw really and don't really try. :)

I am fairly new to scrapbooking and I have put together the beginnings of a few books. I am working on a book for my daughter's Girl Scout career (which she's been in for 10 years in June 2012) and one for my son's Cub Scout career. I am going to be working on a book for my nephew's mother for her birthday in July.

Update: Mother's Day 2013. I gave my mother the scrapbook I made her and she loved it! I made each section about one of her kids and their family and did sort of a family tree page with a family picture, birthdays of each person, and when that child got married. Then the "chapter" was pictures of the grandkids from that particular family. The last chapter was pictures with one or more families represented. She loves it and looks at it frequently.

I am a hoarder of scrapbook supplies and love all the different papers and embellishments. If I see something I like, I tend to buy it just because, not because I am working on a project at the moment. :)

I am also slowly branching out into ATCs. They prove quite the challenge for me, but I think I am slightly improving with each one I do.

I have finally purchased a SMASHbook and have started it thanks to the Glimpse Into My Life... swap series. That swap series gave me the kick in the pants I needed to start working on the book.

I think Pocket Letters have become my new favorite thing! I really enjoy making them, deciding on a theme, collecting the tuck-ins, well, everything! If you would like to do a private Pocket Letter swap, please let me know!

I would also like to get more into flip books, art/junk journals, and trying new papercrafts. I watch a lot of youtube for ideas.

Other Things To Know About Me

I collect bears, angels, dragons, Eeyore, My Little Pony (G1, G3, and G3.5 ONLY!), Santas (thanks to my grandmother to whom I was very close) and penguins.

I like silver jewelry (rings size 10.5, bracelets, earrings (for sensitive ears)), earrings that are cute (holiday, Eeyore, penguins, cutesy things, etc.)

My favorite holidays are Christmas, Valentine's Day, and Halloween. I love to decorate for the holidays and put up decorations on the first of the month and leave it up for the whole month.

I love chocolate. Especially the combos of chocolate/orange, chocolate/raspberry, and chocolate/mint. Dark chocolate is the best thing ever! One of my favorites is Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (regular or dark). I also love the flavor watermelon, plain, peanut, dark chocolate M&Ms, Peanut Butter Twix, mint Three Musketeers, Sixlets, Red Vines, Whoppers... I could go on for days. :)

I love to drink hot chocolate. I don't drink coffee (but I love the smell of it) or tea at all. I love cheesecake, just about any kind.

My favorite colors are blues, purples, darker shades of green. I do not like PINK or RED (unless it's for Valentine's Day), ORANGE, YELLOW, BROWN.

My daughter's name is Ash and I can't believe she's already been married for a year (September 9, 2017)! It's still kinda weird to say I have a son-in-law! Lol

My son's name is Kyle and he'll be 17 in January. We're having a lot of trouble with school with him. I don't know what we're going to do about it yet, but it's causing a lot of issues in our family. (Part of the reason I'm not on Swap-Bot anymore)
