Update

UPDATE: I had surgery about 6 weeks ago and am still having a lot of health problems. I had hoped to have my late swaps out by now but just haven't been able to. I haven't been at the computer either and I'm sorry I haven't given my partners updates. Thanks for understanding.

About Me

I live in Portland, Oregon and absolutely love it. I came here from Sacramento to attend college and never looked back. I adore the weather, except that lately the summers have been too hot. (If I wanted 100 degree weather I would have moved back to California!) I live with my husband Jim, we have been together for 17 years this March. I am very fortunate. Neither of us wanted to have kids so we have furbabies instead. We have always had cats but now we have 2 St. Bernard puppies. My friend decided to breed her dogs and had a litter in November. We were lucky enough to adopt Lucy so she is a year old now. They didn't get mom fixed in time so another litter came along in May and we were blessed to get Ethel. They are a lot of work but totally entertaining. We also have 6 cats. It's a totally crazy environment and the animals definitely have control of the house!! I have two things I collect - anything cow-related and anything Grover-related. I also LOVE purple!!

Favorite Crafts

I don't really think of myself as crafty, although I keep trying to be. Mostly, I am a collector of crafting items. My two chosen hobbies are quilting and rubber stamping. I have not done much quilting in the last couple of years but that has not stopped me from collecting lots of supplies for them. This year I will be going to a quilting group once a month so I hope getting together with other quilters will inspire me to sew more. I am in a stamp club that meets once a month and so I have been busy building up my card supply and learning new techniques in the process.

Favorite Television

I have always watched a lot of television. I think it stems from being an only child who didn't like to play with other kids much! I watch reality tv and dramas mostly. Although I do love 30 Rock and Modern Family. I like Biggest Loser even though I tend to sit on the couch eating ice cream when I watch it! I watched Survivor when it was first on and then quit but I did watch the Samoa version because my uncle's wife is from there and I wanted to see the island. I love Clean House because it gives me hope that there are houses as messy, if not more, than mine! As for dramas, I like most of the crime procedurals such as Law & Order, CSI, NCIS. I am also addicted to Grey's Anatomy and Fringe. On cable, I love Nurse Jackie, United States of Tara, Weeds, Dexter and True Blood. True Blood surprises my friends because I'm not really a vampire kind of person. Like I said, I watch a lot of television......

Favorite Books

I have loved to read my whole life. My great-grandmother was bedridden and I shared a room with her when I was a baby/toddler. She used to read to me constantly and as a result I could read at the age of two. I am eternally grateful to her for that gift. These days I tend to read mysteries. I discovered Jodi Picolt about a year ago and so I've been slowly reading all of her past books. I'm a little strange about mysteries that are a series - I have to read them in order. I just read the first "Jack Reacher" novel by Lee Child and can't wait to read the rest of the series. I am fortunate to live in the same town as Powell's Books and love to visit the store whenever I can. It is truly amazing.

Wish List

I would love anything with Grover from Sesame Street, dragonflys, cows, Saint Bernards, pretty paper, most any kind of office supplies, anything to do with rubber stamping, and anything purple.

Comment: Kelly, thank you for the postcard. It is postmarked 11 Mar. 2010 and was marked inadequate address--it did not have my apartment number on it...Thankfully the post office figured it out and delivered it today.

Comment: After communicating via email, I expressed that what you sent did not meet the swap requirements and you said you'd resend. I still haven't received the proper items.

Comment: I received pm's from both of my partners on this swap that they would be late. Swap was to be sent by 3/31. On 4/1/10 you PM'd me: " just wanted to apologize for being late in sending out my swap. I had unexpected surgery and have been trying to get my swaps out. My husband has been trying to help but……anyway, I promise to have the swap in the mail by Monday at the latest. I hope you understand. Thanks, Kelly" On 4/18 this swap was still marked unsent. I am willing to reconsider the rating when the swap shows up. A

I hope your health is improving.

I'm sorry to say that I'm removing you from the QnT group due to so many "1" ratings.

AlyxBee on Nov 24, 2010:

Hello, I am going to have to remove you from the My paper heart group due to the amount of unexplained 1's as well as the fact that we require you have logged in within the last two months. :(

crescendo on May 20, 2010:

Hope you feel better soon! Sending healing thoughts.

raven on May 16, 2010:

I am so sorry to have to ban you from the Monthly ATC Swappers group but your ratings have fallen to low as group rules states for you to be a member.

Lorivintage55 on Apr 22, 2010:

Can't understand why you did the 8-bit ATC swap but failed to do the #2 International Big Envelope Swap. Why do you join these swaps if you're not going to follow through on all of them? And it's very sad cos you have such good ratings. Oh well...(also messaged you twice and no response!).

Hi, checking in again to see if you received my swap yet. Still waiting on a rating. Thanks! :) PRETTIEST Patterned Paper or Card stock share 4x6

ArizonianbutmissesMichigan on Mar 23, 2010:

Hi, has the "Prettiest Patterned Paper or Card stock share 4X6" reached you yet? It should be there by now. Please let me know. Thanks! :)

Oh my gosh - I love Grover too! I have a soft spot for Super Grover; an underrated superhero in my opinion ;)
