UPDATE 10 OCTOBER 2013 I am still looking for work. I should be getting unemployment payments in the next couple of weeks. Things are looking better in that department. I am still swapping a few items because it helps keep me from going crazy!!! I am very thankful for my church family who have helped me so very much through this hard time!! Thank you to those here who have been very kind and supportive--you know who you are!!! But, things are looking a little better!!!
UPDATE 3 SEPTEMBER 2013 I am currently unemployed and without home phone or internet. I do have internet on my phone, but it is VERY limited at this time. I will try to get on here as I can. I am hoping to have my internet restored very soon. If you need to get in touch with me, you can message me through here or send something straight to my email. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
I apologize for any problems this may cause and sincerely want everyone to know that I am OK and that I WILL get through this. My swaps should all be sent out except for two. I will have to take a little bit of a break for now, but will not disappear completely. I have made some good friends here and met some really great people. If you are the praying type, please say a prayer for me and my family. If you are not the praying type, please send some positive thoughts my way. My family and I can use them right now.
Married, mother of three who loves sending and receiving mail from anywhere in the world. I have twins and a teenager. Sometimes I feel like my husband is a big kid himself!!!
I like a lot of different types of music. What I currently listen to mostly is country, Christian, blues, 80's, 90's, no rap!!! I grew up in the 80's and early 90's and seem to be stuck there--especially with some of the "hair bands"!,

I love stupid comedy movies!! Police Academy, Adam Sandler, Mel Brooks, etc. I also like some of the lighthearted romance comedy movies. I am also a sucker for Pixar-type animated movies. Not crazy about horror or action, shoot-em-up type movies. I also like anything history related.
Although I do like a lot of reality TV, I do not like things such as Big Brother, Survivor, Toddlers and Tiaras, etc.
I do, however, like:
The first 48
National Geographic channel.
I love a good documentary about a person's life. I do not watch very many of the shows on network TV. I have satellite and I love it!
Since I am doing a lot of postcard and stamp swaps, I thought I would add some things that I like here.
I like almost every kind of postcard you want to send me. I am really not very picky. If you really want to make me smile, I love beaches, sunsets, oceans, flamingos, flowers, views of where you live, funny or inappropriately funny (I have a crazy sense of humor), art, mountains, animals, frogs, dogs, and abstract art to name just a few.
I do not care much for anime, pagan/wiccan, too cutesy, kawaii, space, sci-fi, or mythological type cards.
I like a lot of different stamps. Flowers, animals, architecture, China, Japan, Israel, Mongolia, very colorful, Christmas, special issues, butterflies, birds, fish, Asian countries, some of the more colorful stamps from the European countries
I don't really care for space or sci-fi related themed stamps. I have way too many of those little queen head stamps from many different countries, basic stamps, and a few others
I love almost everything crafty! Here is a list of what I have done, like, or dabbled in from time to time:
Scrap booking/paper crafts
Beaded jewelry making
Drawing-although I am not very good at it!
Candle making/soap making
Other things I love:
Tea-but not much coffee
Active in my church
I LOVE RED-ANYTHING RED!!
Searching cemeteries for old family members
Beaches and palm trees
Summer and warm weather
Anything medical-i am a respiratory therapist

Antique market shopping
Working in my yard
Seeing all the other profiles, I am adding things I absolutely would love to get in swaps and things I would rather not:
vintage paper items
paper with an old or vintage feel to it
old book pages
old music pages
fruity scented candles or soaps
chocolate with nuts (but not fruits or coconut)
journals both plain and lined
flavored things (cherry, lemon, orange, lime, grape, cranberry)
plain tea (black or white tea)
plain or vanilla flavored coffee
pens wit removable caps-no click pens
chap stick/lip balm
lip gloss in reds/corals/bronzes
ponytail holders without the metal pieces
body sprays in light scents
simple necklaces-I do not wear bracelets and can't wear earrings
mod podge-can never have enough
scented oils for oil burners
That is about all I can think of right now. I am sure there are others and i will add them as I think of them.
These are things that I dislike:
Coconut, rap music, candles and scented oils in scents other than fruity or cinnamon or mint, dark chocolate, flavored things (strawberry, berry, melons, blue raspberry, kiwi), items that aren't Christian religions (I will respect your right to practice whatever beliefs that you have and will not send you the "you are going to hell" stuff!), green peas (makes me want to gag--especially the smell of them), meatloaf (not even my mother's), broccoli, cleaning, laundry, green tea, some flavored teas (flavors are listed above), iPhones (love my Samsung, thank you), cold weather, snow, cloudy days, rain, mean people, Taylor Swift, Justin Beiber, BeyoncÃ©, celebrity gossip, nudity that is not done in an artful form, and others that I can't think of right now. I will add as I think of them.
