About Me

I love anything with a "retro" look to it - especially things from the 50's 60's and 70's -- I'm a fan of birds, owls, mushrooms, Garden Gnomes, cute japanese prints, and really any retro prints. My favorite colors right now are yellow, Purple, Orange, avacado green and robin's egg blue (not necessarily together! haha) [really, I like all colors]. Anything quirky or fun...

***My favorite thing to receive hands-down is something HandMade. Anything that is made with love, I will love!****

I love all things crafty - knitting , sewing, embroidery, papercrafts, jewelry making, pretty much anything that involves CREATING things. I love writing letters and encouraging people.

I am also a Single mom of 2 lovely children - an 8 year old boy (Edison) and a 4 year old girl (Claudia). My daughter LOVES loves LOVES anything related to Ariel/the Little Mermaid. She's into anything TINY and cute -- little animals, little dolls, and anything pink sparkly or girly. She also loves dress-up items. My son loves to play his DS and he likes Funkies, Silly Bandz, Legos, hot wheels, Pokemon and Star Wars

I drink a lot of coffee (strong & black!) and I like the combination of salty & sweet --- choc. covered pretzels, chocolate & peanut butter, and I love chocolate & caramel mixed. Yum! And after all of this talk of chocolate...my favorite cookies are lemon ginger cookies.

I love stationary sets - fun, cute, pretty, quirky, anything! I just love paper! ^_^ [as a note here - I am a piano teacher and use lots of stickers, including reward stickers, so I don't mind if you send them - some people *hate* them, but I can actually use them]

I also love chopsticks and would love to add to my collection of these!

I drive a 1983 diesel mercedes benz whom I have named Millie. She's a great old car with nearly 265,000 miles on her!!

I live in upstate NY but sometimes imagine myself moving to Wyoming. It is so beautiful there!

I love to laugh & have a good time. I try to embrace JOY every day (even on the really really REALLY tough days). My relationship with Jesus has gotten me through the last few years -- a time in my life where it was sometimes hard to find that joy, but my children and I are moving forward and loving life!

Favorite Music

I'm a musician - a piano teacher, a singer-songwriter, and a church Music director. I love all kinds of music - especially indie/folk music (like Joni Mitchell, Ray LaMontagne, Nancy Griffith) as well as quirkier singer/songwriters like Regina Spektor and Bjork.

Favorite Books

I LOVE to read and often have several books going at once. But all time feel-good favorites are the Anne of Green Gables series; LOTR; The Drifters; I capture the Castle; the Bible (especially the book of Psalms and the book of Isaiah right now); Jane Eyre; Wicked and anything by Jodi Picoult and anything by Francine Rivers...really, anything that catches my eye.

Favorite Movies

Return to Me; the Star Wars movies; LOTR; all of the Star Trek movies (even the cheesy ones); Amalie; Coraline; any James Bond; Mamma Mia.... I really don't often watch movies more than once though.

Favorite Television

I don't watch a ton of tv, but I am a fan of Castle (!!), the Office, 30 Rock, Flight of the Conchords, Cold Case, Samarai Jack, Star Trek (esp. original and Next Generation). But, I can't say I watch any of them too faithfully. My favorite shows seem to get cancelled quickly - I loved the show Freaks & Geeks and was very sad when it was cancelled. Loved Alias, Lost & the Bonnie Hunt Show.

Favorite Crafts

knitting (!); felt softies; papercrafts - especially cardmaking; embroidery; jewelry making; sewing (when I can get my machine to work right).

I Promise!

I promise that I will ALWAYS send my swap(!), and I will always RATE my swap (!) -- If I haven't rated something that you sent, then I did not receive it. Also, you don't need to send something "extra" to get a Heart from me. I will give you a heart if I think that what you made is extra special (but feel free to send extras bc they are so much fun! ha ha!)

P.S.

Don't feel like you have to stick to my list! I love surprises and seeing what other people like as well. I love anything Handmade with Love. :) The only thing I'm really not a super fan of is violence/gore...Soooo, you can save that for someone who does like it. Thanks. :)

Comment: Thank you for the package. I love the mini notepad. I do have to admit; the necklace is not my style so I will regift (kind of in keeping with this swap) but I truly appreciate the thought.

Comment: You went so above and beyond for this swap, and I love it all! I'm really glad I opened the package when my niece wasn't around or I would have heard a very excited "Tandy!" and seen a small quick moving blur make off with my Tigger pez. Thank you so much!

Hi, got the note cards yesterday. Thank You! Enjoy your Wednesday!! :)

Received another mailing on Monday. Thank You! Neat how you are decorating the envies with stickers and coloring. I still color. I am a kid at heart. Which reminds me I need to add to my profile I enjoy receiving stamped images that I can color. Anyhow enjoyed your note along with papers. What made me smile on Monday? I talked with my Mom, saw a friend, made some cards for a swap, received your mailing, and did not have to wait too long at the post office. Enjoy your Day! :)
