About Me

I am a 49 year old single mom of a 7 year old daughter, named Leah Rose. We love to do arts & crafts, reading, and photography. I am new to swapping, but I thought it would be a lot of fun to give and receive some unique mail. It gets tiresome seeing nothing but bills in the mailbox. :)

Favorite Activities

MUSIC: I love classic rock and some of the more modern country music. I listen to soundscapes on the tv at night. When I was in elementary school, I took piano lessons. I can play classical music, but I'm not very good at playing any other kind of music.

BOOKS: I like to read mysteries, thrillers, romance, but my favorite is Science Fiction. My favorite author is Anne McCaffrey.

MOVIES: I like to watch all kinds of movies... action, drama, historical, children's, and science fiction. My favorite movies are Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, and The Gladiator with Russell Crowe.

TELEVISION: TV is my favorite multi-task partner. I am always listening to the TV when I'm doing something. My favorites are Law & Order, NCIS, hawaii five-o, pretty much all the cop or detective shows. Sanctuary, Warehouse 13, and Stargate.

Favorite Crafts

CRAFTS: I love to create things.. antique angel pins, angel tree toppers, crochet, cross stitch. I collect angels and teddy bears. I love all things southern, vintage, frilly, and girly with ribbons and pearls. My favorite colors are dusty pink and emerald green. I've never swapped FBs before, but I would like to try making one and being in a swap, and share the experience with my 7yo daughter.

OTHER HOBBIES: My other hobbies are volunteering, girl scouts, blogging, writing, journaling, poetry. web design & graphics (including blog layouts) and photography. I love social media such as facebook and twitter, and blogging sharing networks, such as blog frog. I do play farmville, farm town and cafe world, but I don't force it on my friends who don't care anything about it.

COLLECTIONS: I love to collect angels, teddy bears and candles, in any type of media: such as knick-knacks (even cheap $1 store ones), jewelry, paper, stickers, bookmarks, pictures, pretty magnets, antebellum, keychains, anything with magnolias, and postcards

SWAPS: I will accept private swaps. I'm new to handmaking items, but I like making FBs, bookmarks, postcards (from my photography). If you are interested, send me an email to [email protected]

PENPALS: New penpals wanted. Females in the USA only, age range 38-58ish, preferably Christian moms (married or single ok), also moms of special needs children ok. I write long chatty letters about my everyday life, regularly, but not too frequently.

My Favorites

==> My favorite colors are emerald green and dusty pink.

==> My favorite flowers are azaleas, pink tea roses, camellias, magnolias

==> My favorite food is chocolate (it is a food group, you know)

==> My favorite drink is Dr. Pepper

==> My favorite ice cream is mint chocolate chip

My Dislikes

I don't like coffee or tea, anything gothic, dark or scary looking.

About Leah Rose

Leah Rose is 7 years old and in the first grade. She loves anything princess, my little pony, little pet shop, spongebob, puppies, kittens and horses. Her favorite colors are pink and red, and her favorite shapes are hearts and stars. She loves to sing and dance. Her favorite movie is Ariel.

Comment: finally received she admits she didnt send a card to a single mom but a friend of hers that helps her in times when she needs it. Though thats a lovely gesture this swap plainly states to a SINGLE MOM to encourage her. This was also admitedly sent over 2 weeks late. I received it yesterday 4/27/11 after being told on 4/24 that she had mailed it and was catching up on swap due date for sending this swap was 3/4/11 so no matter what she deserves nothing better than a 3 and thats being pretty generous
Comment: Thank u :)
Comment: here's a freeby! Please pass on the good spirit and don't stop swapping!

Comment: I'm still giving you a 5, even though it was shipped 10 days late with no communication, until the day you shipped it, and all you said was that you shipped it. No reason why it was so late. :( The squares are lovely though.
Comment: Beautiful ATC!! I loved the detail!
Response: I am so glad you liked it. Thanks!
