About Me

UPDATE- 2/6/18- REGARDING THE 3 RATING THAT I JUST RECEIVED; I WAS UNAWARE UNTIL RECENTLY THAT THIS PARTICULAR SWAP HAD NOT REACHED MY PARTNERS. I SENT IT ON JANUARY 1ST. I RESENT IT TODAY, 2/6. MY WORK SCHEDULE HAS CONSISTED OF 12 HOUR DAYS FOR SEVERAL DAYS IN A ROW LATELY AND I HAVE NOT HAD THE TIME TO CHECK SWAP-BOT REGULARLY. I APOLOGIZE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE THAT THIS HAS CAUSED ANYONE.

UPDATE-1/28/18- I AM TAKING A SHORT HIATUS FROM SWAP-BOT! MY WORK SCHEDULE HAS BECOME VERY BUSY AND I NEED TO FOCUS ON WORK AND MY FAMILY RIGHT NOW. I WILL CHECK IN OCCASIONALLY JUST TO SEE WHAT'S WHAT, BUT I WON'T BE JOINING ANY SWAPS FOR NOW! THANKS!

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 like a few pop songs; Katy Perry, Lady GaGa... Olly Murs has become a new favorite.

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.

THANK GOODNESS FOR NETFLIX! We recently upgraded our cable, but there's still nothing on to watch! Lol! My daughter talked us into getting Netflix and we're all loving it!

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.

Comment: Heather, I was cleaning up my records and discovered that I had not rated you on this swap. My apologies for the oversight! I went back and viewed your Dog boards on Pinterest again and loved them just as much the second time as I did the first. My favorite was the board with Dachshunds, Pugs, and Whippets, as I currently have a pug and have sweet memories of the doxies and whippets I've known. And you have a lot of good pins about caring for dogs; I had to repin several to my dog board. Thanks so much for sharing so many great pins and again, my apologies for the delay in rating. Happy swapping!!!

Response: I was not aware that this had not reached my partners until recently. I sent this on January 1st and was recently contacted by another partner to let me know that she had not received this. I resent it to the two missing partners today, 2/6/18.

Comment: Thank you for the cool My Little Pony mini-PL! I enjoyed reading your note because I LOVE those 80s stuff as well! MLP, Care Bears... :D So embarrassing... :D And I would like so see your collection! The weather here is ugly. Not warm, not cold. A bit wet. A bit snow and ice. Blah. I want summer! :) And my son is so happy about the stickers you sent him. Thanks so much! He covered his toy box with them. :)
Response: Yay! I'm so glad you like it! Unfortunately, my pony collection is in storage at the moment. I'm thinking of getting the boxes, though, and setting up a shelf somewhere. I'll let you know if I do! I'm so glad your son liked the stickers! Minions are so funny!

Comment: Thank you for the lovely mini pocket letter, and for the goodies! (It's been extra-cold here, unfortunately...we're having an awful cold snap right now. It's been -40C with the wind chill or worse for half of the month, and we normally don't see cold snaps THAT bad until January or February. I'm scared to see what it'll be like then!)
