I am a single mother of 2 young boys, LD 2 years old and LT 1 year old. they keep me very busy. I live in Kansas where I work for the local newspaper. I enjoy swap bot very much. I have met alot of wonderful people here, and alot of lasting friends are here. Thank you!
DECEMBER 12--My youngest son, Layton, has been in the hospital ALL week, we were released last night. He just had a very violent case of the Flu. He is so small (only 27 lbs) and just got so sick and very dehydrated, then his liver enzymes raised and his potassium levels plumeted, they had to check his blood every 6 hours for 4 days, had to do a sonogram of his insides and had an IV that they blew 3 veins to get in...just very hard week, please please bear with me ok!
Updated Dec. 8--I am in need of encouragement, an email message, a warming card, anything...I have decided to begin online classes to obtain a college degree, Business/Accounting, I am discouraged because here I am thinking that an education will help me better my life and the lives of my boys, but will it??? I mean I live in a tiny town, and there is plenty of Accounting Firms already...I dont know I keep telling myself to stay focused, and by the time I do graduate I will know what I want to do with my education...any positive reinforcement will be most appreciated. Thanks everyone.!

*favorite colors are green and blue. i like the colors that go together too like khaki and sage or red and green, stuff that compliments each other.
*I love candles, especially cinnamon or apple. I like the kind that smell for a long time! I enjoy the warm scented ones, especially since cold weather is among us ;)
*Favorite holidays are Christmas, Halloween and Valentines Day.
*I love lotion-especially hand made or anything that is really for dry hands. I like pearberry scent and sweetpea (both are scents from bath and body works--of course cheap or knock off brands are welcome) I also like mostly any fruit smell--not cucumber melon though I have had enough of that ;).
*I love dragonflies- LOVE THEM! I have a dragonfly tattoo that is very special to me. Dragonflies are just so aestically pleasing, they are wonderful!

honestly, I am easy to please, if you send me something you love I will love it too!
If I am ever in a swap that clothing or sizes are a part of, my clothing size is large for like shirts and stuff...my shoe size is 9 1/2 usually--this coincides with sock swaps as well. and if I am ever in an underwear swap, my size is 6. My ring size is 6 or 6 1/2, but sometimes half sizes are not available.
I would love to get homemade things! I really appreciate the time and love put into hand made items.
*Hand made soap, lotion, or candle is always a favorite of mine as well. If you are a candle maker, I would appreciate any scent you have to offer, please dont limit it to cinnamon or apple.
*if anyone would ever make me a dotee i would love it. I recently received my first dotee, in a Halloween swap, I love her soo much. I would really love to have a friend for her.
*I love love love to journal..send me a journal! also if you want to do a journal swap in which we each journal for a set amount of time, i would definately be interested!i love to read about others' lives...

*I can say I have caught the dotee bug, I love them soo much. I have only made a few but I know there are many more ideas in my little head for them ;)
*As far as food goes I LOVE chocolate- i would love to try some chili or cinnamon flavored chocolate or chocolate from other countries, I really love truffles!
*I enjoy tea especially flavored. Tea seems to help me relax after a long day and warm up on cold evenings.
*Basically, if you are kind enough to share food with me, I would love to have something local for you. If you live outside the US I would love to try something that I am unable to get here.
I am generally open to do one on one trades! I like to get profile surprises and I like to give profile surprises, please pm me if you would like to surprise each other!

journal, any journal, i love to write! i really like journals with lines the best.
any gel pens- the kind safe for scrapbooking
paint- I like the squeeze bottle kind- any colors!
stickers-ANY-variety! if I had to pick a favorite I like vellum probably the best, or the ones that have a clear background, that you can lay on top of things. (does that make sense??)
*a game to play with my bf when the boys are in bed. we have been playing checkers FOREVER and it is getting a bit old haha..anything you enjoy or that only takes 2 players!

I would enjoy warm scented candles, hot chocolate, tea, cider (yummm), cozy socks, anything to keep me warm on cold days. I love POINSETTA plants. I would love to have a letter of any family traditions or any family recipes.
I think it would be wonderful if you could include a small something for my bf (his likes are below) or my boys (also below) -- ...thanks so much for considering. (note: this is by no means a list of stuff i HAVE to have or anything like that, i just wanted to include this section to help you figure out the type of things i enjoy that are christmas related, please dont limit yourself, and please dont feel obligated)
