A note to my fellow swappers and swap admins:
I am a flaker, I have flaked on fourteen swaps. I want to get that out in the open. I took on more than I was able to deal with physical or emotionally at that point in my life so when I fell apart a lot of other people were affected by my choices. It was inexcusable and I’m sorry for it. I still owe all those people and I am working to make it right with them. It has been almost two years since then, and I would like to start swapping again, since I did enjoy it before my life got so complicated. I hope you all can see fit to give me another chance.
So, the basics, I am college student in my early twenties. I live in northern Alabama; I have lived here all my life. I have a used to have a part time job as a waitress in a restaurant at the airport. I quit my job because my boss was, well there isn’t anything nice I can say about him, and I needed to be able to focus on school. I live with my parents and really enjoy the days I get more mail then they do.
I love flowers, obviously by my username, all kinds, but my absolute favorites are lilies, ranunculus, zinnias, and roses. I colect purses and costume jewlrey, espicaly vintage (or vintage looking) rinestone broches.
My favorite colors are jewel tones, deep purples, silver, and gold.
I love music, but hate concerts, I know weird right. I am never without my iPod. I listen to it while I drive, while I shop, basically all the time.
Showtunes, I love musicals!
I listen to so many different kinds of music. The groups and artists I like, in no particular order, are: Coldplay, Scott Joplin, Christina Agulara, Linkin Park, Katy Perry, Ingrid Michelson, Enya, Muse, Paramore, My Chemical Romance, The Black Ghosts, Blue Foundation, The Choir Practice, The Mountain Goats, Honeyhoney, The Kills, Pink, Metro Station, and many, many others.
I am slowly but surely becoming a music person, which is kind of a surprise to me. Any time you want to send me music feel free, whether it is just music you like or your own band, I want to hear it.
I love musical, golden age of Hollywood movies, and costume dramas. My mother says I watch movies for the clothes, and to a big extent I do.
Really though, I like any movie with a great story that I can get into. I hate the big action movies and horror/slasher movies that barely have enough plot to hold them together. I like a movie that has character I can get attached to. Mostly I go to movies that have a book attached to them, so I can spend more time with them.
To list a few movies I like are: Pride and Prejudice, Serenity, Imagine Me & You, Saved, Eulogy, Twilight, ‘Mystery, Alaska’, Stardust, Armageddon, Underworld, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, Marie Antoinette, Much Ado About Nothing, and A Fish Called Wanda.
I don’t watch all that much on TV.
Pshyc, Project Runway, Pushing Daises, Scrubs, The Office, South Park, The Venture Bros, and my current obsession is Ledged of the Seeker, because I have read the book it is based on.
I also really liked the Tinman mini series that came out last year, and the canceled shows Dark Angel and Firefly.
I love books. I read most genres; I love the classics, fantasy, and sci-fi. I have recently really enjoyed books written by Jane Austin, Terry Goodkind, Stephanie Meyer, Orson Scott Card, and Anne George. I am always looking for a good book to read.
I really prefer fabric crafts: fashion design, sewing, quilting. I also knit and crochet. I am trying to find information on how to make lace.
I like to draw but I really don’t have much of a talent for it outside of designing clothes.
Sewing is the best and my favorite. I love to get new fabrics, plain and patterned cottons, as well as fabric with texture, for making dolls. I make a lot of clothes so I have piles of fashion fabrics, buttons, appliqués, and lace.
My full name is Marlena. My initials are MGM. I also go by the nickname Gigi. I was born in August, so my birthstone is peridot, thought I don’t really care for green.
