I am in my 40's single and no kids. I do date someone. I live with my sister, who is both a sister...a friend...and a PITA, but I love her--she is there through thick and thin for me!!! I also live with my 2 nephews! Aaron just turned 22 and Kevin just turned 21! I love both of my nephews to no end even if they are bigger PITA's then their mother. I was there when both of them took their first breath of air, watched them grow into crazy young men...they are like they are my own sons. There is not much I would not do for them.
I have a lot of different things that I am into. The two that are at the top of my list are DISNEY and collecting postcards from around the world.
I love scrapbooking and counted cross-stitching. I have gotten into drawing and painting. I have also come to like making journals. I also like making jewelry. I have been known to make my own Christmas tree ornaments.
I am only putting this on here incase I take on a swap where people need to know my likes, dislikes and so on. So here gos-the likes....

I love postcards. With them you can see diffrent parts of the world. So if you want to send any...I love them all!!!!! I like mine stamped and mailed unless the swap calls for them to be sent another way. To me the stamp tells as much about a place as the postcard itself.
I love cooking and baking. I just don't like cleaning up the mess when I am done! :) I love any kind of recipes, cook books or anything to do with cooking or baking.
Recipes....I love them. I love old ones the most along with old family recipes. I have some of my grandmothers that I use to this day...got to love her 10 batch chocolate chip cookie recipe! If you are in a recipe swap with me you don't have to put them on recipe cards, I like mine just copied because I put them in a "cookbook" that I have made. So save the recipe card...unless the recipe fits 100% on the front...and just copy and send me the sheet of paper!
Again just for recipe swap FYI:
I can not have: NUTS and do not like coffee
Dessert recipes are the most welcomed!!!!!!
I love to read...I have a job where I sit on the net or read books. I read almost any thing. I DO NOT like si-fi, mistory or crime books. I love more or less everything else.
I love to travel...or should I say the thought of traveling. After years of saying I was going to get my passport I finally did...yes the photo looks like a mug shot from the jail! :D There is sooo many places that I want to travel to. Because of this I am always looking/love to get information on different places...from anywhere in the world! Sometimes you find the dumbest thing to see that turns out to make the whole trip a fun one! So information on your area is always welcome.
Places I have been to in the USA:
I LOVE NKOTB....New Kids On The Block anything and everything you want to send of them is welcomed!!!!!!!!!
I send my swaps out with in a few days of partners being given out. Or I try to, sometimes life happens...if this is the case and can not get it in the mail by the swap mail date, then i will send a PM not only to my partner but the swap host to let each of them know what is going on. If you do not get a swap from me PLEASE let me know ASAP. I take swaping very sericly. Also PLEASE rate, it is only a small thing but important.
An added note on swapping...people that don't live up to the swap rules set forth by the host I will start rating a 3. I will also rate a 3 if there is no contact made by swap date that you will be late mailing. I understand that life happens, but it is also respect to contact as soon as you know you are not going to mail on time.
******Why I have a 3 from 2010. It was a pen pal swap. I wrote every month I was to write until September 2010. I was having personal problems that the receiver of the letters knew about. It was fine with her that I did not write for awhile and then she put a 3 on me. Mail takes time to get over seas and she did not want to understand that. I would have tried to make it right after being away from some years, but she has not been on for a year or so.
