About Me

*** update***

(8/12/12) Life can take you down trails unexpected. It's been a while since i have been on swap-bot. I have missed it and now that I have moved to Cali and have no job and no friends. Plenty of time to craft. Plus, it's a great way to cheer myself up.

My last post makes me smile. :) I did get make my awesome craft table out of some recycled materials I got from the re-building center in portland! We even built in a light table into it and the table is huge! I am happy to say my little place I moved into is small, but Beck made room for my table. Yippee!

Really! I am VERY blessed to have my new life here in California. I get to spend my weekends hiking near Lake Tahoe and now live in a cool little town. Missing Portland and my friends has been much harder then I thought.

Then again there are new trails to Hike and new inspiration to be found! CHEERS!

(2/1/11) Ok, one week and counting and I get my own CRAFT ROOM!!! Hell yeah! Next project is to get myself a killer draft table and then rock out some crafts!!!! Happy Swapping to All in the New Year! May your creative muses inspire!

Creativity and generosity are a wonderful thing to share!

I love being crafty even though I am a novice at sewing, knitting, beading, watercolor, ATC's, bottle caps and general small crafts. I will give just about anything a try! I have found that i have a love for recycled crafting !!! During the year I work with Special needs kiddos. (mostly autism and medically fragile) They give me a great opportunity to play, craft and look at everything with a smile on my face.

I joined swap-bot because

I am looking to collect local beer and or coffee stickers from around the world. I love recycled art inspiration. Any simple and adaptive crafts that i can share with my students. Mainly, inspiration and a positive place to share my crafts

My favorite entertainment

Movies and TV Eureka, warehouse 13, Greys Anatomy, Gilmore Girls, glee!, Leverage, reality Tv, Survivor, ANTM, Rupauls Drag race!

Music

Tony Smiley, Sia, Lamb, Tori Amos, Ani, Postal Service, Ben harper, Ben Folds, Yonder Mnt Sting band, John Lithgow, John Denver, Folk/ bluegrass music, ambient techno, shoe gazer, blues and jazz.

Authors I read

Jodi Picoult, Janet Evanovich, Robert Rankin, Christopher Moore, Anne Rice. Absolute favorite book is The Princess Bride by William Goldman.

Current book I'm reading The Elemental Mysteries Series by Elizabeth Hunter. I am just about to start the third one. The Force of Wind

Leisure, internet and other randomness

Word search puzzles. I do them ALL the time, just to relax and calm down. Playing friz-knock, disc golf, bocce ball, hand and foot, doing jigsaw puzzles, POGO, and other yahoo games. For the kiddos .....classroom suite and boardmaker activities, papunet games, starfall, Storyline online, dltk and more many I'm sure I will post latter.

These things I am not here at swap-bot for: Negative ninnys, dirty or overly loved items, I dislike most birds.... although I am fond of Peacocks. Apple or Banana smelling anything. Not looking for political or religious associations. Any promotional shwag.etc. People who half-ass their projects. Please put some thought and heart into what you swap.

BY THE WAY...... I am No Longer a Smoker! Yippee 1 year plus!

Still, If you are sensitive to other things (many in my family are) gimme heads up and i'll accommodate. I want all my swaps to be enjoyed by everyone. PEACE!

Hello from KY! (wishing I was living back in FL right about now!) So I see that you are a John Denver fan. I have to admit I wasn't diggin' him several years ago when my husband shared his love for him. I have to say JD has grown on me! :) Just took awhile! Anyway, I'm finding these swaps to be super big fun! Hope you are, too! Have a great week and maybe we will get to swap sometime! Read post/leave comment swap. yepimadeit....Trish

bubblepic Hi Lisa :) Hope you are doing well. I am your partner for the 'read my profile and leave a comment' swap. Welcome back to swap-bot. You sound so cheerful and peppy, makes me smile! Also nice music choice. I love ambient music too & lounge. Have you heard of cafe del mar/ Thievery corp. or Buddha Bar? They are great. I was also addicted to ANTM at one point! Anyway, Have a lovely new year.. hope your beer/coffee sticker collection grows by leaps and bounds! :)) Happy swapping! x

Hi Lisa, My name is Sandi, I am one of the partners in the Read My Profile Swap. First and foremost, I love how honest and upfront you are. I too am new to swap-bot and am amazed at the talent out there and love the venue of connecting with people all over the world. It is so wonderful to work with kids that have autism, my oldest child, now 30 has Asberger's Syndrome, so I have some understanding of the challenges that come with that and I so admire your work. Creativity is both beneficial for your students as well as your own preservation. Well, take care and happy swapping. Sandi

RaineyDay on Jan 9, 2011:

Hello and Happy New Year. I am one of your partners in the "Ready my Profile and leave a Comment Swap". I see you just moved. I hope you are settling in. It can be challenging to get back into swapping after packing up everything, but it can be done, and you have a chance to get a fresh start. I hope to be your partner in another swap down the road. Take Care!
