Last update 9/19/17

I'VE MOVED!!!! I have updated my address on file and have already gotten a few swaps (forwarded, or sent to my parent's address). I am in the process of joining more swaps (took a bit of a break while driving across the country) because a mailbox with just junk mail and bills is no way to live ;)

I hit "sent" when I drop the letter/package in "outgoing mail" slot in my building's mail box group. I am still trying to work out what time the mail comes, one day I saw the mail truck on my street at 11:00, the next day it was after 6:00. I don't know how that effects the postmark.

I have two "1's" on my list. From a long time ago. I am trying to get back into swap-bot. One of the individuals I owe the swap to is no longer active on swap-bot, and I am waiting to hear back from the other.

About Me

I'm a mother of two, a boy and a girl, and love every minute of it. I work full time as a mental health counselor for low income kids. I don't have much spare time on my hands, but when i do I love to make things. I love to bake, chocolate chip cookies are my specialty. I love to read, and cross stitch in my spare time. And I love getting things in the mail :)

Favorite color: Green, though, as mentioned below, I'm planing a wedding with the colors silver and purple (think like a deep royal purple like purple pansies) so those colors are nifty too.

I've got handwriting roughly on par with your doctor (without the pay check) so please don't be annoyed or upset if what I send is typed and not handwritten. You will appreciate it, I guarantee it.

Work

With my move comes a new job. I am a mental health counselor who works with kids and teens (mostly girls), about half of which have substance use issues. My office is bleak, as I have to start decorating it from scratch (I left all my posters back at my old job site so my replacement wouldn't have to start from scratch). I've found that several of the postcards and note cards that I've had the pleasure of receiving are particularly suited for my office. If you have anything you think would decorate the office wall for a therapist, by all means send it my way! And if it's not therapeutic, that's ok too. I am very easy to please.

Favorite books/televisions

Books Anything by Terrie Pratchet, Loving the Sookie Stackhouse books (you know, True Blood?), Harry Potter, Vintage cookbooks, and too many more to list

TV Big fan of The Mentalist, In Plain Sight, Castle, Chuck, X-Files, Doctor Who, Warehouse 13, Breaking Bad, Criminal Minds, Bones, This is Us, Golden Girls, and many others, and not necessarily on that order.

Favorite Crafts

Cross stitching is really what I'm good at, but small fabric crafts I also do, like making fabric hair bows. recently I've been experimenting making household items (hot pads, place mats) and purses...though they're not 100% there yet. I also like to play around with paper. I dabble in scrapbooking and card making, and use a lot of collage and paper crafts at work. I enjoy making ATC's, though I am aware that my art style isn't everyone's cup of tea. I prefer to do simple hand drawings, or collage style cards. I don't do the mixed media-overly loaded-barely fit in a sleeve-practically 3D style that so many face. I enjoy receiving those cards, I just can't pull them off. So I do simple cards, because they make me happy.

Favorite Movies

I'm a typical chick flick girl. If its got a hot guy, a sweet story and a happy ending I'm all for it. Bonus points for it being cheesy or funny. But, my all time favorite movie is White Christmas. I know, I know, odd, but that's just what I love. I also like a good number of the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies/TV shows. Just don't get me started on the changes that they're making in the comic books, especially to Captain America.

Favorite Music

Rock/Alternative-Nothing super heavy, but I do enjoy a good beat. Pretty much your adult top 40 type of music, though, Country, especially songs that have a fun upbeat or tug at the heart strings. I've got a soft spot for '90's alternative, '40 and '50 jazz, and the funny rock of the 50's and 60's

Wedding and kids

I'm getting married! We're still nailing down a date (at this point I'm fairly sure it'll be in the next 10 years, we've been together for 8 so far, no need to rush HA!), but I'd love to start collecting things for it. Our colors are purple and silver and the flowers that are going to be the main focus are pansies (which doesn't fit for winter, I know). I'm going to be making my own cake with my friend who used to do cake decorating, so anything related to that would be wonderful...if I join a swap like that. I'm sticking to mostly flat swaps at the moment for cost and ease.

My kids are A.J.-14 and Annabelle-10. A.J. likes vintage video games and all things tech, anime and manga, and currently thinks he wants to be a math teacher when he grows up. Annabelle likes web based video games, art, anime, and baking. If I'm in a "kids can too" type of swap, you'll be sending to/receiving from Annabelle. She especially likes to do pencil drawings or people and furry wolf-like animals, just as a heads up.

Likes/Wants

I love fabric and would take anything that's at least the size of a CD. And buttons, plain, shaped, decorative, what ever, I'll take it. Paper, stickers, paper crafting stuff. Any colors and patterns too. I LOVE washi and glitter tape, in any thickness. I love seeing all the different patterns and styles that other people have in their collections. For postcards, I LOVE vintage cards and neat homemade cards, but will take anything (I like more typical tourist cards as well and love seeing where you live and different cities and countries). I am generally very easy to please.

Please don't send

I do not drink coffee, tea (aside from herbal tease without actual "tea" in them), or alcohol. Anything containing these will be a waste on me. I'm also allergic to dogs, so please take care not to get a lot of dog hair on things if possible (I understand that dog hair happens)

Comment: Hello Kathi-Ann! Thank you very much for your postcard! We actually do not really get snow at all in this part of Texas, however last week we got snow here for the first time since I've lived here (heading towards 7 years) and I believe the first time the area has gotten snow in 20+ years. It wasn't much and it melted off the very next day but it was fun while it lasted! Thank you again and wishing you and yours a happy holiday!
