A little more personal info on me- I am 35, I live in Ontario, Canada but was born and raised in Florida. I have been married for 13 years and have one beautiful 7 month old son named Liam.
Here are a few of my interests....
Fairy Tales- I love all kinds of fairy tales especially the dark stuff. I love Hansel and Gretel, Goldilocks and the three bears, Little Gingerbread Boy, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, The Elves and the Shoemaker.
Cooking- I have been cooking my whole life. I am originally from the South so it was a big thing in my family growing up. I enjoy cooking all types of food and I'm actually pretty good at it. I love collecting kitchen items. Feel free to send me recipes that you enjoy, spices you use a lot, cooking utensils, aprons, kitchen decor.
Baking- Same as cooking, it makes me feel really good when I have some fresh baked goods. I love being a Domestic engineer. :) I love to get things related to baking as well. cupcake baking cups, sugar decorations, cupcake picks, baking utensils.
Writing- I have been writing since I was a kid and I love to write poetry, childrens stories, horror shorts, pretty much anything. I love to get cool pens and pencils, books or sketch pads to write on, colored pencils, markers.
Journaling- I love to journal and I love collecting journals. I would love to receive altered journals with journaling prompts in it, nice pens, journaling prompts.
I decided to make a section on things that I most recently would like to help out my swap partners. These things will more than likely earn you a heart.
Updated January 2013
Cupcake and cake decorations
cute cupcake papers
I love horror so feel free to make me some kind of horror surprises.
Woodland stuff- Anything with cute little woodland animals.
Vintage items- especially if it is shabby chic. I love pink so that is even better. It can be trims, lace, paper pieces, toys, whatever. I love shabby chic vintage.
Also, just to let you know if you have the ability to re-create or come close to re-creating any of the items on my etsy wish list that is awesome. I would love to have your version of my wish list items.
Anything from the Alice In Wonderland movie. I love the dark look so if anyone can make plushies or things like that in the Tim Burton style it would be awesome! DEFINITE HEART!!!! :) I love handmade!
Disney Alice In Wonderland. I pretty much love all Alice In Wonderland things so if you can make me something or find something that is Alice. I would love you forever.
collage items- vintage items, wallpaper sample pieces, ect... A fat envelope stuffed with paper collage items would totally make my day.
I love ATC's and have quite a few topics that I enjoy. If you are sending me profile based ATC's then this is the perfect spot to see what I like.
Supernatural (the tv show)
Grimm Fairy Tale

Reading has always been a hobby of mine and I enjoy most types of books. I am not big on romance but I love chick lit. Especially British chick lit. I also enjoy Horror novels and mystery. I love Sue Grafton and have read every book in the alphabet series that she has out so far. I love reading True Crime books. I also love stories about "real" ghosts.
I am not ashamed to admit that there are lots of young adult books that I love. I think it started with Twilight. I wasn't a big fan of the movies but the books were amazing. I then started reading Charlaine Harris books and especially love the Harper Connelly series. I am also in love with the Beautiful Dead series of books. My hubby saw it at the library and thought it looked like something I would like so he checked it out for me. He was right. I have since gotten them all for my Kobo and I'm just about finished with the second book. I highly recommend them. They are by Eden Maguire. Another series of books I just became acquainted with and have enjoyed are The Children of the Red King by Jenny Nimmo. I kept hearing people talk about The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins so I thought what the heck. I started reading it and couldn't put it down. I read the whole first book in under a day and have started the second one now. I am in love with it. What an amazing story. I will add more books here as I read new authors.
I also quite enjoy smaller children books as well. I am always a great fan of fairytales such as Alice In Wonderland, Rapunzel, Princess and the Pea, The Secret Garden, Hansel and Gretel, Little Red Riding Hood. I love Roald Dahl especially The Minpins. I love The Borrower Books, The Boxcar Children, The Soup Books by Robert Newton Peck.
I am always looking for new authors to try out so please feel free to message me some suggestions.
I would love any of the following books...
