Feb. 4,2013: I will be taking a break from swapping for a while. I need to concentrate on finding a better job. I will try to check in once every week or so to rate and check messages.
PLEASE CONTACT ME FIRST BEFORE RATING ME LESS THAN A 5!!! I ALWAYS SEND SWAPS OUT BY THE DEADLINE AND HOPEFULLY TO MY PARTNERS LIKING, SO IF THE SWAP HAS NOT ARRIVED OR YOU FEEL IT DOES NOT MEET REQUIREMENTS THEN LET ME KNOW SO I CAN CORRECT THE SITUATION.
I am a divorced mother of 2 beautiful children, daughter 13 and son 11. We love spending time together doing anything outdoors. I enjoy traveling, which has led to my favorite hobby- postcard collecting.
I have recently developed a love of journaling. I am a notebook/journal junkie!!! I have been for years. I own boxes upon boxes filled with the most beautiful, unique, weird, artsy, antique, and just plain gorgeous journals ever. I would never write in them for fear of messing them up. Since beginning my art journal journey I now have a passion for "messing up" the pages with embellishments, paint, paper, found objects, and of course lots of writing!! I have several writing journals going along with art/junque journals and my Smashbooks. Oh, I'm having a BLAST!!!
I am a huge fan of Neo-Soul music. I listen to lots of Jazz, classical, socca/reggae and country rock. I can enjoy really any kind of music except for heavy metal. I just can't get pass the screeching, piercing sounds of the guitar.
I just discovered ALEX CLARE, I'm in love!!!
Some favorite artists are: Maroon5, Michael Buble, Floetry, Marsha Ambrosius, Florence & the Machine, Joss Stone, Amy Winehouse, Adele, Melanie Fiona, Nina Simone, Lady Antebellum, Otis Redding, Jill Scott, Sam Cook,Harry Connick Jr, Rascal Flatts, Maxwell, Coldplay, Bob Marley, IndiaArie, Jazmine Sullivan, The Dixie Chicks, Anthony Hamilton, Billie Holiday, Najee, Nora Jones.
I LOVE to read, however I haven't had the time lately to do as much as I'd like. Some of my favorite authors currently are Dan Brown, Christine Feenhan, Sidney Sheldon, James Patterson, Stephenie Meyer, John Grisham, Jodi Picoult, Zane, Niki Turner, and Nicholas Sparks. I have come to love the work of Jane Austen!!! There are so many more I enjoy. I try to keep up with the Oprah book club so I am exposed to different genres and read books that I may not consider on my own.
The Count of Monte Cristo, Pulp Fiction, The Help, Dances with Wolves, Color Purple, Sense & Sensibility, Salt, Good Will Hunting, Nights in Rodanthe, The Time Travelers Wife, Tristan and Isolde, Memoirs of a Geisha, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, The Women, Finding Forrester, 300, The Great Escape, Serendipity, The Notebook, Love and Basketball, The Wedding Crashers, Ever After, Dear John, The Shawshank Redemption, and Sarah's Key.
