About Me

I am a high school English teacher, and yes, I do love books. I have found that teaching English is not the same as curling up with a good book at home, but I enjoy it just the same. I like a lot of the things that you might think an English teacher would like - books, bookmarks, bookstores, stationary, pens, discussion and analysis.

I enjoy spending time with my family and I think spending a long time over dinner is a great night out.

Favorite Books

In general, if it is well written, I will like it. I enjoy reading across a broad spectrum from classics to romantic beach reads. Right now I am enjoying reading some travelogues and young adult fiction. I am going back to school to become a school librarian and I like to be caught up with all the major trends in literature.

Some of my favorites: The Life of Pi - Yann Martel, The Thirteenth Tale - Diane Setterfield, The Stolen Child - Keith Donohue, The History of Love - Nicole Krauss

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy working on a variety of projects - I usually have a couple going at one time. My favorite items to swap include ATCs, matchboxes, postcards, books, candy, and paper based items. I love working with paper and I am a sucker for Sharpies and glitter glue.

Things I Like

-simple and elegent design -clean lines and sharp edges (simple but not plain or minimalist) -book, writing, or word themes

-humor and wit (but not slapstick)

-dark chocolate -Chicos (chocolate flavored gummy candies) -peanuts -chewy candy -marshmallows -oatmeal

-nature: mountains, pansies, leaves, vistas, clouds, rain, birds, starfish, waves, that new feeling that only exists early in the morning.

-henna: I do my own tattoos and I am getting pretty good at them. I like things with designs that can be used as tattoos or that will inspire tattoos. I prefer Arabesque designs.

-vanilla -jasmine -citrus

Things I Don't Like

-rap, metal, or any other heavy type of music -anime -anything emo -pastels or florescent colors -chile or very hot or spicy foods -gum

Ratings and Deadlines

I vow to rate and never to flake. If I forget to rate you or your package has not arrived in a resonable amount of time from when it was sent please send me a note. I would rather receive a reminder than to let somebody down.

Private Candy Swaps

I am completely in love with those chocolate gummies from Australia - so, if you are from Australia or you have some extra chocolate gummies around get in touch with me asap!

Comment: Thank you for the scavenger hunt. My husband was equally happy to get this package. The chocolate did melt, but I put it in the freezer, so maybe it will set back up.

Hi :) I was wondering if you have received the swap I sent from 2008, the hand drawn ATCs?? Please let me know, they should have arrived by now. Thanks again for letting me make up this swap. Leighanne
