About Me

I joined Swap-bot because I just bought my first house, am engaged recently, and just started my first career job as an attorney... I just wanted one more thing, to be connected with people.

In fact tonight, when I remembered I joined this site months ago, I was reading "restored my faith in humanity" posts. I started thinking... how can I be a part of that when all I do is wake up, go to work, go home, and spend free time shopping? That doesnt make for great connections with people... Not only that, I'm 26... I'm a crafter. For goodness sakes... I have a craft room... and I rarely have anyone other than my family to give things to.

Then I had to start google searching words until I could find this site again. I hope to get to know people and to make connections around the world...

I love everything... which sometimes is a problem. I always want to try anything. I want to be a quilter, a scrapbooker, baker, chef, and everything else!

I love to read but barely have the time to read all the cases I need for a brief due next week...

If I'm late with anything please bear with me. I try my best and will do my best... my goal is to have that NEVER happen, but I put that in here just in case. I work full time as an attorney and when I'm not at the office, I'm trying to make sure my house is at least not falling apart. :P

Random addition... I received a lovely shirt in a swap and luckily it was my size! Just in case clothing is ever an option... MY CLOTHING SIZE: shirt - Medium or large I love scarves, gloves, and hats!

Favorite Crafts

Right now I am not doing all that I would like. Turns out a new house is not easy to keep up along with a full time job.

However, I etch eggs, make scrapbook cards, and cross stitch mainly. I used to knit and crochet a lot as well. I also bought a sewing machine thinking I would make clothes too...

my favorite thing is etching eggs. I was on the Martha Stewart show back in March 2012. I was lucky enough to show her on her show how to etch eggs. Unexpectedly enough, I was proposed to in Times Square afterwards...

Now I am working so hard at my job I just etch at times to relax (there is one in front of me right now...)

I also love making cards when I have the time. I make very bust cards that of course cost extra to mail... I have lots of fun gluing vintage stuff like buttons, pins, flowers, etc with my stamped images and such.

WISHLIST CRAFT STYLE: buttons lace flower embelishments silk roses crocheted flowers brads paper stickers of all kinds stamps (clear and blocks) cards and envelopes embellishments of any kind old items old jewelry vintage stuff thin ATG gun double sided glue tape birhtday items any holiday items pearl adhesives rhinestone adhesives Michales 1...2...3... dollar bin items! paper flowers!

Not a fan of: kawaii items branded items (like disney, etc) hello kitty

CURRENTLY I DONT: Sew Quilt

Favorite Television

I love watching storage wars, storage wars texas, pawn stars, Hoarding - Buried alive (when I need to clean the house of course), as well as What Not to Wear when I can find it no TLC...

I love watching older movies like Oliver, Pride and Prejudice (BBC version), and White Christmas...

Road to Bali (Bob Hope and Bing Crosby) was a perfect evening movie for my sister and I growing up

Now I am a MUPPETS lover. I collect the seasons as they are slowly released. Beaker is my favorite guy on there, followed closely by Gonzo and Kermit of course.

I also love sitting down to watch Downton Abbey (Spelling?), Merlin, Doctor Who, Are You Being Served, Keeping up Appearances, and Robin Hood...

BBC is the best channel...

House Interests

Just because I am a new Homeowner... I feel the need to justify my style sense.

I have no idea what this called, but I love eclectic look... with ethereal natural added in. In other words I try to have glass everywhere filled with natural items or shiny things. I have glass like tea cups etc from vintage shops, then filled with rocks and moss, etc. I like the look of a victorian/country home that was abandon and the elements started to take over...

if anyone ever has suggestions to make this look happen without spending a fortune... I am all ears!

Fyis

FYIs you would not be able to guess from my profile:

  • I DO NOT eat fruit... and most fruit flavored things... (aside from citrus FLAVORED items) fruit just grosses me out for some reason... i think its the gooey texture and seeds... i like tootsie pops and lollipops though..... orange and cherry only.. :) (yes I'm aware it's weird
  • I love mint and Lady grey teas...
  • I'm a coffee nut, but I love it best with flavored creamer
  • I have two cats... one I will pay you to take away (jk) and the other, is my best friend... he is extremely spoiled
  • I love the color combo of red, black, and white
  • If I could keep my Christmas tree up all year I think I would
  • I start listening to Christmas music in September
  • I am Lithuanian
  • I love candy canes and will go crazy after Christmas shopping for boxes to last me over the rest of the year (Cherry and mint only... raspberry,,, blech!)
  • I play violin, clarinet, and saxophone
  • Josh Groban and Colin Firth are my biggest crushes (oh and Sean Connery)
  • Pride and Prejudice is my favorite book
  • I am deathly afraid of zombies and would not survive a zombie apocalypse

Other Wishlist Loves

I absolutely love notebooks and notecards. I try to find them as cheap as possible so I can doodle to do lists and the like in them. It makes me feel organized for a minute or two.

Let's make it easy and instead of writing paragraphs I'll just list... :) - notebooks

  • notecards (blank on the inside)

  • sharpie markers

  • printed fun to go tissue packs

  • Colgate wisps

  • lip balm

  • nail polish

  • lip stick

  • fun makeup

  • tea

  • hot chocolate

  • coffee

  • fun candy/chocolate

  • and so much more :)

Comment: Too bad ...
Response: I have a 1 from you from several months ago. I want to extend my apologies for this. I bit off more than I could chew and fell behind on these swaps. I was wondering if I could make it up to you. I messed up on "a hot chocolate anyone". Can I send you a package just like I would have for that swap now? Let me know. I told myself I could not join any more swaps of any kind until I fixed the ten people who were neglected by me.

Comment: As it has been almost two months since the swap ended, I'm pretty sure I will never receive anything. She originally sent me a message letting me know she was sending out late, which I was totally fine with. A couple weeks later, nothing had arrived so I messaged her and she said that she'd sent a ton of stuff out and would look to see when she sent my package as she had her post office receipt and that she'd message me back. She never did. A couple more weeks passed and I messaged her again, this time with no reply. So I'm finally leaving a 1. I really hate the fact that I have to leave this and if she actually decides to send off the package, I will in fact change this rating.
