Hi! My name is Janell and I was brought onto this site because a friend of mine keeps sending things to other people in different places and it looks like so much fun. I have a lot of interests, mostly books, dogs, tea and drawing. I'm pretty friendly and live on the east coast of the United States. I love the beach and love living here. I also enjoy the benefit of getting a little greeting from someone to just say hi.
Favorite Colors: Jewel tones, purple and grey... LOVE grey
Favorite Music: I know it's pretty regular to say but I'm open to all kinds of music. I like rock, pop, electronic, and classical. I find international electronic music to be the best!
Favorite Books: I am a sucker for a good romance and a good murder mystery. If you combine those then it's heaven. I love to read. I love the power of words and how they can make you feel and see different things. I love the classics like Jane Austen and the Brontë sisters.
Favorite Television / Movies: I love anything with Benedict Cumberbatch, dreamy dreamy dreamy man. I like old period pieces, anything about investigating murders, and anime is new thing I've gotten into as well. Sounding like my book likes above... Hahaha
Favorite Crafts: I love making things with my hands. I love art. I'm not good at it but I love to create something. I am decent with drawing and try to do that every day to relax. I have started to try watercolors... boy are those temperamental. I ventured over into ATC land and I will see how that goes.
Dislikes: I'm don't like sweets too much just boring sweets like shortbread cookies and dark chocolate. Bookmarks - I read everything digitally now a days and own few books. Mostly collections. I am not a fan of stickers. I don't really know how to use them in the mediums that I craft. I am not religious please do not send me religious things. I love trees at christmas time and stars and stuff but no religious based things thank you. I'm sure this will update as I participate in more swaps.
Likes: I am very patriotic. I have spent 14 years in the military and love my country. Anything stars and stripes related I will love, individually, whole, or USA related. :)
Send me a handwritten letter! I love letters. I'll save them all! If it's in a different language it's fine! Just let me know what it says. Teach me something in your language! I want to use letters to make some crafty stuff!
Anything that I can give to my dogs is a big bonus. They are my children and I love them to pieces. COFFEE and Earl Grey tea. Kinda picky about my tea. HONEY!!! I use Honey in my tea. Send me all the Honey!
Crafty stuff - stationary is the best. I love stationary and journal stuff. I really do need some hole reinforcers but I am looking for some cute ones for my journal not plain white ones. I ❤❤❤❤ love Copic Markers - $8 a pop gets expensive. If you want to send me one I will be your best friend for life just ask me for my Copic list. I love flimsy paper like tissue paper all stamped up, paper all written all over, vintage paper, anything vintage really (not junk). Handmade paper is awesome as well as craft paper. I love the brown of craft paper.
That's all for now!
