I became a grammy to Matt on December 24, 2006. I knit, crochet, like to travel and I love movies. I love the color PINK. I also like blue and lilac. I don't care much for orange and I really dislike mint (or any light) green. I like forest green, though. I love crosswords and reading. I like soft things. I like to travel . I have no pets. I am not much for perfume but I like scented shower gels and body sprays, mostly raspberry and PLEASE absolutely NO VANILLA! If you're thinking about sending me any item of clothing, please ask me first since I am larger than an XL and live in northern California where it's over 100 most of the summer and yet cold enough for hats, scarves and gloves in the winter. Easy but beautiful patterns (knit or crochet). I have a very serious pattern addiction - I collect easy patterns from everywhere, especially for small projects. I love snowmen! I like fairies . I have a soft spot in my heart for butterflies and certain cartoon characters like Wile E. Coyote, Droopy, Opus, Tennessee Tuxedo and Bullwinkle. I DO NOT SCRAPBOOK SO PLEASE DO NOT SEND ME ANY SCRAPBOOKING ITEMS EXCEPT STICKERS. Handmade cards are great and I love to receive them!!.
Neil Diamond, Dixie Chicks, Carrie Underwood, 70's music (think Barry Manilow, Linda Ronstadt and the Bee Gees), Taylor Swift but NO heavy metal or acid rock.
Wizard of Oz, Gone With the Wind, Paternity, Tombstone, 50 First Dates, You've Got Mail, People Will Talk (50's Cary Grant movie)
Law & Order (any of them!),CSI (LV), Blue Bloods, Fringe, Chopped, Criminal Minds, The Closer and Eureka. I admit that I watch most of the shows on the Food Network because I enjoy learning new things about cooking. Even after probably 45 years of cooking!
If you want to send extras and have no idea what might work for me, here's some helpful hints. I don't drink tea but do drink coffee and cocoa but just plain coffee, nothing flavored. I prefer milk chocolate to dark although but all chocolate is welcome. I always like a good bookmark, free, store-bought or home-made. Little notecards are good. I like roses and yellow ducks and cute white bunny rabbits and yellow chicks. I especially like them on stickers. I appreciate an easy recipe for one. If you have no idea of what to send or have an idea but are not sure I'd like it, please, I do NOT find it insulting if you ask. I prefer that you ask and I will do the same for you if I am unsure.
I always look at your profile and if I have any doubts, I will PM you. I always send my packages and almost always they are early. It's not meant as pressure to partners, just that I am an early person. I was born 2 weeks early! And if you ask anyone who knows me, they will tell you I am always the first person to arrive. So please if you do not get an envelope or package from me by the deadline, PM me because I do not want to disappoint anyone!
My wish list is not really big and mostly I am wishing for things I don't have, do or know much about. There are a couple of items on it that are related to what crafts I do but mostly not. Here's my list:
A dotee doll, A fairy wish jar, A tote bag to haul a knitting project around, Pink yarn, Handmade notecards with snowmen or yellow ducks, handmade earrings or handmade socks!
Wishing, too, for anything related to the Boston Celtics. I am a huge fan. Favorite players are John Havlicek, Robert Parrish, Bob Cousey, Kevin McHale, JoJo White, Dave Cowens and, of course, Paul Pierce.
THE LATEST is that after 8 months of unemployment I had a job but after 5 weeks due to lack of work I am now mostly unemployed. I started a part time job at the end of June which, with partial unemployment, is keeping me afloat. So I am now UNDERemployed, massively, but my employers know that by the end of this year/beginning of next year I need at least 20 hours a week to be off unemployment (before it ends) and to be able to make ends meet. That is all it will do but that's OK. They have time to work it out and hopefully this will happen so I can continue to stay in my home and support myself. . No swapping until I get a lot more hours because I can't afford postage on my current income. I am fortunate to have enough to cover the bills. So sorry, no swapping except electronic ones until finances improve.
I rate you the same day I receive your swap. If you take the time and make the effort to ensure I receive your swap on or before deadline, I feel that rating you the same day is fair.
I am always up for a private rated swap. Be forewarned, though. If you don't send to me, I will give you a 1. I ALWAYS rate.
