About Me

Update August 2010 - I got a Jack Russell named Bailey for my birthday , she is 2 years old and from an abusive home, we just love her to death. Also, my husband bought me an awesome Yamaha Vity 125cc SCOOTER!!!! Now I can get around town on my own! One more thing - on Tuesdays I am working at the Bristol Zoo in Animal Encounters!!!! I love it! :-)

HI!!! I am new to the UK and moved here from Texas. I meet my husband on the internet winter 2008 and moved here June 2009 so I am not what you would call shy! LOL I love animals, nature, crafts, reading, and kids. My husband and I are English Civil War re-enactors with the Sealed Knot and avid Volkswagon Camper fans. I collect teacup sets (dessert plate, saucer, and cup), postcards, and craft supplies! Cardmaking and Scrapbooking are my favorite crafts but I also enjoy crosstiching too. Oh and I am a sci-fi fan, Glee nut, and crime show watcher! I can't wait to make new friends and swap cool stuff :-) Cheers!

Favorite Books

Twighlight Series; Harry Potter Series; Anything by Meg Cabbot and Dan Brown

Recently Read; District Nurse, HRH, The Physician, Wild Swans, Little Princesses, Harry Patch's biography, and various historical romances

I LOVE reading!!!!!!

Favorite Television

GLEE, Star Trek (all of them but Deep Space Nine - yuck! lol), Criminal Minds, NCIS, Flash Forward, MASH, Zoo Days, BBC News, Monk, House, Numbers... ok maybe i like TV a bit too much! hehehehehe

Favorite Crafts

Scrapbooking, Card Making, Cross Stitching

or anything with glue, bling, and creativity!!!!

Just started doing ATCs and Matchboxes and I am addicted now!!!!

PLUS my craftroom is almost complete! Finally a room all to myself to do my hobbies! Have been missing having one since moving here to England. Will try to upload a photo when I am done (if I ever figure that out!)

Favorite Movies

Swiss Family Robinson (original Disney version), Bridget Jones Diaries, Stargate, Jane Austen films, Sandra Bulock films, Overboard, Deep Impact, Armagedon, Wallace and Grommit, Game Plan, October Sky.... ok this could go on forever.... just NOTHING scary or horror like!!!!!

In love with Ben Affleck, Matthew McConaughey, Will Smith, Harrison Ford, Morgan Freeman...

Want to be Sandra Bullock, Meg Ryan, Kate Hudson...

hehehehehehehe Just being silly! LOL

Postcards I would like

I would love to get postcards that show your hometown, country, or special sites to see. I am very interested also in other cultures so anything you write about your area would be great!!!!

Besides those I would enjoy ones with teacups, scooters, vw campers, animals, vintage, and almost anything!!!!

I have collected postcards all my life and beg for people to send them to me when they were on holiday but hardly anyone ever does! grrrrr.... It started because my great grandmother collected and I inherited her collection.

A cool stamp would be extra special and I like my cards naked (no envelope)


Just in case you would like to send me any extras or I am in swaps that have food sends... I AM ALLERGIC TO FRUITS AND NUTS PLUS ANY ACID ADDITIVES

Thank you for your kind considerations. Please feel free to PM me if you have questions or just want to talk about food allergies I would be glad to discuss the difficulties if you are also dealing with these issues :-)

It's been a year that I have waited for a rating from you.

Hi. Your were my partner for the 7 plus 1 swap. You did not rate me, and I re-send the swap, thinking that you did not receive it the first time. But I see that you have not read any of the mails that I send you in connection with this swap.
