About Me

I am 44 and have lived in Arkansas for most of my life. I am married and the mother of two wonderful children. I have a 15 year old daughter and a 12 year old son. I am a Christian and Baptist by faith.

I'm a rather happy and content person. I like to see the joy and blessings in everyday life.

I love to read, create things with my hands, write letters, and make fun journals..

I started doing journals in the last few years and I enjoy it. I like writing things down about my daily life. I enjoy reading about other people's everyday life and getting a glimpse into their world. My favorite journals are randomness and magpie journals.

My other favorite swaps are letters and fun mail.

I am cutting back on my swapping at the moment. I am going with what I enjoy this year and less stress.

UPDATED 1/20/17

Favorite Books

❤️❤️❤️ I LOVE to read. ❤️❤️❤️

I will read anything that looks or sounds interesting. I don't really limit myself to one genre. I read according to my mood so that's why it varies from book to book. I like to read Historical, Regency and Contemporary Romance, Chick-Lit, Suspense, and Mystery. I am not a big fan of Sci-fi or Horror. That being said I will read a scary book now and then.

I like Sara Addison Allen, Sophie Kinsella, Christi Caldwell, Samantha Grace, Eloisa James, Maya Rodale, Kristin Higgins, Jess Michaels and Erica Ridley.

I have enjoyed ~The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins~First Frost by Sarah Addison Allen~Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen~Amy Snow by Tracy Rees~The Coincidence of the Coconut Cake by Amy E. Reichert~The Hating Game by Sally Thorne~

If you are a reader, I would love to hear what you like to read and some of your favorite authors.

Books say: She did this because. Life says: She did this. Books are where things are explained to you; life is where things aren't. I'm not surprised some people prefer books. - Julian Barnes

My Favorite Swaps

My favorite swaps are journals, writing letters and small craft projects.

I like to be creative and find crafts to be an outlet for it. I am not an expert at anything but love to try new things.

Interested in Swapping

I am interested in swapping for small items, postcards, cards, notecards, fun quotes, bookmarks and various crafting items.

I love anything to do with scrapbooking such as paper, stickers and embellishments.

I like bible verses and spiritual quotes. I collect quotes so the more whimsical the better.

I like doing journals. I like randomness journals, Magpie Journals, Happy Journals, etc. I like seeing what interests others

If you are interested in doing a private swap with me for any of these items, or just want to swap with me send me a PM.
