About Me

Wow its been a long time....will prob be deleted my acct here soon. Going to think about it first though....2-16-2011 * I am back and hopefully going to be a bit more active. I am still on bedrest and not able to do alot, but I figure what better time to work on swaps than when I am stuck laying down all day :)

An eye for an eye would leave the world blind! Ghandi

I am a SAHM to 4 wonderful kids ages 13, 11, 7 and 1 and baby #5 ITS A BOY! due in Jan 2010. We are a pet and smoke free home (I dont even let visitors smoke inside). NOTE We now have hermit crabs but I promise they aren't allowed to help me work on my crafts!

I LOVE Tatouage Wall Art and I even signed up for my own business with a company! It is addicting and lets you really express your own style!

I am very dedicated to the Earth! I LOVE our Earth and we only get one :) I recycle what ever I can (so dont be surprised if you see a swap from me arrive in an oatmeal box lol!) I love anyitems with the earth, go green type logos, The Tree of Life etc on them. I REALLY love to get items that are up-cycled! I am also addicted to re-useable bags!!!!!

I was born in 1980, but I love "vintage" and "retro" style items ESPECIALLY POLKA DOTS!!!!!!

Favorite Crafts

I love love love crafting, altered art, painting etc! I love any type of art really! I am not perfect in anything I do by any means! I am more of a modern contemporary retro vintage style person lol! But I LOVE anything with a hint of flair from nature (branches, leaves, flowers, butterflies etc. whether its "real" or created... I just plain out love earthy and nature type items)

I love the colors lime green, turquoise, goldish yellow, black & white, dark red, red, and burnt orange but other colors are fine, thats just an idea.... no light pinks, blues, mauves etc.

I love funky one of a kind art work(s), and I LOVE displaying my art as well as others works of art in my craft studio! Right now my main style of art is "paper" art. I am designing anything and everything out of paper!!!!! I have 1000's of magazines that I use to create my "art" with, as well as books, papers etc.so bring on the paper!

I promise I am NOT picky at all and would LOVE anything for a swap!!!! I am very creative though and I promise your item(s) will have my own unique flair to them! I try to spend alot of time on my items and make them special. I want the person receiving my "art" to have a smile on their face when they open their package from me! My one flaw- being a procrastinator! I have learned over the years that I love the pressure of a dead line and I work best the last 24hrs before! But I promise all swaps will go out on time :) I might be a procrastianator, but I'm def. not a flaker!

Favorite Music

I LOVE classical music and relaxing sound scapes type music (rain falling or other water sounds, relaxing almost spa theme, nature sounds etc.) Not so much into anything else though...

Favorite Books

I love mystery books! I don't have much interest on romance novels unless it's based on mystery with some romance tossed in (which most books have anyway lol) I have 4 kids with one on the way so I will be honest, I dont read too much unless its crafting or decorating types books or magazines. I also like old hard back books that I can use pages out of for make collages etc out of.

Favorite Television

  • That 70's Show (I would love for my house to look like theirs! I love the styles of the 70's)
  • The Brady Bunch (again love the kitchen!)

Matthew, 13, into skateboarding, loves black and blue and is def a typical teenage boy! He mostly likes video games and fishing!

Brittny, 11, into funky bright colors, not into boy bands or Hannah Montana or anything like that. Just likes what she likes :) Likes beading, funky art, drawing, painting and playing with her long hair. NOTE She is undergoing testing right now for Aortic Stenosis, a Congenital heart defect, so she can't do much this will get her heart rate up. So coloring books, crayons, drawing pads, charcoal pencils, paints etc are great for her...

Zach,7, likes colors red and blue (but other colors too) Likes Sponge Bob, Skateboarding, Fishing, Cars, Video Games and other typical "boy stuff"

Emma, 1, my Little "Darling" :) Her fav thing to say is "Hi Darling!" She is a born Southern Belle at heart and she loves being girly! She loves pretty things and dresses! She has recently fallen in love with the Disney Princesses, especially Snow White!
