About Me

NOTE- I SEND ALL SWAPS SO IF YOU DON'T RECEIVE SOMETHING PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE RATING I WILL HAPPILY FIX THE SITUATION

** I POST SOME OF MY SWAP PICS ON FLICKR SO DON'T LOOK IF YOU WANT TO BE SURPRISED.**

my pledge

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.

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.

Favorite Books

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...

Used is fine as long as they aren't written in or torn.

Hi! Just wanted to thank you for the Abandoned Pinterest swap there have been so many wonderful boards to look at. It makes me sad that people could just walk away from many of them. But on the other hand some of them with names, it has sparked my interest to explore these places on the internet. Thank you again for such a fantastic swap!!!
