About Me

I've been having a lot of issues and have fallen behind on my swaps, for that I apologise. I'm sending out the last of my "makeup" swaps this week. Please let me know if you do not recieve anything.If you were a partner you should have my personal email, that I will try to check regularly to make sure these are made up.


Hi, I'm a new-ish mom struggling to make life a creative, fun journey.

I never was taught any of the "domestic" things like sewing or cooking so I'm learning everything from scratch!

My son, Jadyn, is a year and a half, born March 31, 2008. He is a firecracker and my little muse. He lives with such zest and approaches everything with a smile and eagerness. It's so amazing the growth we do so young, in such a short amount of time! I'm completely amazed and so in love with the little miracle god granted me.

PLEASE, please adopt your pets from the humane society and spay and neuter! We have to put down hundreds of animals a WEEK due to the sheer amount of cast aside pets.

I would consider myself spiritual but I do believe in God. I do yoga as much as humanly possible as its the only time in my life i can sit still and just breathe. I am an ordained minister though I currently don't belong to any organizations, i do on occasion perform weddings, which i love to do.

We have a toy apricot poodle, Dolce, which is Italian for "sweet" to describe her loving demeanor.She is a spoiled girl and loves living the "pet-child" life. We unfortunately had to leave her with my mom in Phoenix, so I am a little broken hearted.

We got a precious little 3 mo old kitty from the humane society, named 'Mao Mao' since thats what my son calls her.. She's very cute, cuddly and sweet. Shes a dilute calico, mostly light grey and a white underbelly..

I am constantly working on becoming myself as well as being a good mother for my son.

My sizes are Med. Pretty much all the way around, lol. Though I have tiny size 5-6 feet and I'm only 5 ft tall! I have kind of a conservative, fun, style of dress. I like details like ruffles and buttons and 3/4 sleeves.

Crafts and Likes/Dislike

I've been a professional photographer for about 6 years and also enjoy it as a hobby. I teach childrens gymnastics, yoga and dance.

I also like creative writing projects (journaling), collaging, and I'm obsessed with trying to organize my life!

I have a modern/vintage taste as far as decor and colors.. Bold Patterns, bright colors with a retro feel.

I'm really learning to get into "domestic" stuff so anything on cute sewing projects, bright fabrics or cutesy sewing accessories would be great, I don't have anything or even know where to start!!

Also, Cooking. I'm brand new to this as well. I want to learn to make great delicious meals for my family as well as desserts. I have made up a few recipes that turned out super delicious to share!!! I love adorable recipe cards.

BACK TO MY USUAL!! Red/black retro housewife theme for THE KITCHEN. ALSO i love things with blackbird/pies like that nursery rhyme for my kitchen...

My bathroom is in a ocean, mermaid theme with light turquoise/teal, and little bits of maroon/hot pink, purple, white... I'd love any ocean type shells or mermaid stuff..

I love stamps and paper crafts, though I'm just creating a supply kit.

I love and get inspiration from Sark, Curly Girl Designs, Amy Butler and Michael Miller Fabric, Janice Taylor, Crafty Chica and all of the fabulously creative and courageous Etsy people!

I'm french and spanish on my father's side and still exploring this side of myself. I hate the thought that I'd be restricted by my american side and would love to hear other's thoughts on the differences between american and their cultures.

I love pink, sparkly, pink, girly stuff! Anything that is girly and creative! Dark, hot pink is my fav color but baby pink and electric blue take close seconds, I also ADORE red and purple. I'm also totally taken with ocean theme and mermaid stuff. I guess my heart is in the ocean! I really like butterflies too. I'm a sweet, fruity, vanilla or chocolate kind of girl! I love coffee of all flavors and LOVE hot chocolate, mmmmm!

----> FOR CHRISTMAS, i love snowglobes... i love light blue, silver and pink ornaments/accessories.. My fav ornaments are the food/dessert type ones or the new crafting/cooking type ones from Martha Stewart, anything inspired from that would be awesome! I ADORE homemade gift tags/bows or wrapping paper!!

My son is about two years, so anything for him would be primary colors(red, blue, yellow, green). HE IS OBSESSED WITH HORSES RIGHT NOW. It's riddiculous, he goes crazy seeing all the little horse toys and doodads. He also likes Cars, Construction stuff (tools, etc) and Elmo and the Wiggles. He wears about a size 18 mo, though on the small size. Tshirts and pants, no onesies!

I DO NOT like mint ANYTHING please! I also have a latex allergy and an EXTREME ALLERGY TO DATES. No dating. LOL!!!

Favorite Books

As with the rest of my taste, I LOVE good, GIRLY reads. Chic lit like Shopaholic, etc, etc. I LOVE Stephanie Taylor-Wilder, and books about being a parent, and a mom. I also really enjoy creative self help books.

I'm just learning sewing and cooking so books on those would be great as well.

I'm a total, "judge a book" girl so pretty, fun with lots of pictures or lots of wit keeps my attention :)

Favorite Television

I love the Food Challenge shows, like Chopped and Top Chef. I also like Project Runway. I like the crime shows like MENTALIST, CSI, Law and Order, criminal intent. I also LOVED Dollhouse and Sex and the City. I really like workout and dance type videos. My son likes any kids movies or TV as long as there is music!

We don't have TV anymore, so I'd love newer issues of the shows above if anyone could record them??

Favorite Music

I really like a variety of music for bunches of reasons..I love happy music like Collie Colbert, Michael Buble, Jack Johnson, Josh Groban, Gavin DeGraw, Jason Miraz... I like songs that make me remember how fun being in love is. I also like fun girl power anthems. I love angry, broken hearted music with intelligent lyrics like the Used, All American Rejects, My Chemical Romance, Jacks Mannequin, Theory of a deadman. I love country because its pretty much the last romantic music. I love finding new bands!

Sending info!

I wanted to say that I'm a nice person. Meaning, if i'm sent something i don't like and it meets requirements, I'm not going to insult your work by telling you it wasn't good enough or i didn't like it. More over, I would never throw it away either. Art can mean many different things and almost something different to everyone.

You should also know I always give hearts if i feel like effort was put into the package. If you aren't happy with the rating, please contact me, I'm reasonable and we can work something out.

I wanted to warn everyone that I've become a bit of an "Green" nut and your almost guarenteed to get a recycled container holding your swap. It's just better for the environment, then its up to you to toss or re-use (of course, I'm for the latter).

Also, if I forget to rate or you don't receive something get ahold of me! I would NEVER, EVER do this on purpose! I'm raising my son with morals.

I am a STRONG believer in Karma. If you hurt someone, you'll get it back, twice as bad. If you gossip, or steal or cheat, you get it all back. I won't need to get revenge, because it will happen. Maybe not the way I'd like or you'd think but it WILL come back.

Thank you for your consideration. Look forward to swapping with you!

SecretSheep rated for Inspirational Cussword Banner on Dec 18, 2009
Comment: This was sent nine days after the send-by date. Paper letters on paper triangles as received would have been a good start, but the description required much more than this. Thankyou for your offer to resend, but if I have to explain my idea of embellishments (a swap requirement) to you, as you suggested, I don't think it would be worth the wait. Edited 18Dec: Thankyou for the second banner which is very pretty. Also for the FQs which will be put to good use. I appreciate that you tried hard to make me a happy swapper.
Response: I re-sent out a new one with some goodies, I hope this one is more what you were looking for. Thanks for your patience!!
Comment: Great package, very Christmasy, thanks again!

Thanks so much for the postcard! We have a no-kill shelter near by that people keep telling me to adopt from (I hope to get a cat soon) to which I always wonder "Why would I adopt there when I can save one from being killed?" I'm all for no-kill shelters, but as it is, my conscious would never allow me to get an animal from there. ANYWAYS, so obviously, I loved the card :). Whew.

Thank you for the bottlecap stuff. I had actually forgotten about the kit until I read the note. LOL. It's funny because I just got into making them and could always use more supplies. ~HUGS~
