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. :)
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.
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.
