About Me

*Had some unexpected events happen, and I'm a little behind on a couple of swaps. I will get them done here pretty quick. I'm so sorry for the delay.

I’m Audra, married to an amazing man (who finds me entertaining though I’m not sure what he means by that), and we have six (not a typo) kids. I’m a home schooling (who teaches who around here?), camera wielding, music listening, dance wiggling, novel reading, prose writing kinda gal.

I'm always playing with crazy colors in my hair, love wearing cute hair things like feathers or floppy flowers, interesting jewelry, have fun with accessories. Funky scarfs are fun, and lets not forget crazy socks! Just no toe socks. :) I love things that are soft or silky. I have a very eclectic style, and love things that are unique and fun.

Favorite Music & Books

Christian, classical, country, oldies, celtic, big band, pop...really, there isn't much i don't like except maybe the ones that just scream at you or cuss a lot. :)

I love Christian romantic suspense, historical, romance, classics...love books on homeschooling, mothering, marriage, crafts...okay, I'm a book addict.

Favorite Movies & TV Shows

The Notebook, P.S. I Love You, Thor, Lord of the Rings, Pirates of the Caribbean... - I love romance, comedy, adventure...I don't like super scary or gory movies. Or poorly made movies. Or movies with terrible endings.

NCIS, The Mentalist, Merlin, The Amazing Race, Survivor...

Favorite Crafts & Hobbies

Crochet, embroidery, sewing, jewelry making, scrapbooking, card making, stamping, mail art, drawing, etching, turning junk into treasure...I love most crafts.

Writing, photography, dance, music (learning to play the guitar and piano), art, reading...

Favorite Colors & Collections

I love both jewel tones and pastels. Love reds, blues, greens, oranges, purples, pinks...I don't like pea green, mustard yellow, etc. :)

Anything with tigers, frogs, cameras, type writers, musical in nature, pens, stationary, handkerchiefs, anything related to tea...


Likes: Other than what I posted, I love vintage, modern, colorful or monochrome, love tea (grew up in England), hot cocoa, decorating, being creative and feeding that creativity, Christmas, all four seasons, candles, HUMOR, wittiness, essential oils, jewelry (I wear necklaces, earrings, bracelets, belly rings, toe rings, anklets, brooches - any type really)...

Dislike: coffee (blech), Halloween, fake people (just be real - flaws and all), people who judge...

Allergies: gluten, purfumes (I'm not allergic to things like vanilla, pumpkin, coconut, essential oils, etc.) This isn't serious - so if you are unsure - don't worry about it! I'll love it anyway! :)

I don't offend easy, and have a wicked sense of humor, but if something is blatantly against my Jesus, I don't like it. :)

My Kids

I have two grown children - one married and one in her own place. The ones still at home are:

Chrystiana (15): reading, writing (poetry, letters), Tangles (doodles), embroidery, crochet, crafts, loves stationary, pens, stickers, puzzles, animals, music...

Christian (12): Tangles, crafts, puzzles, art, stickers, pens, animals, music, books, cars, airplanes, army dudes, legos

Jake (8): Tangles, crafts, music, stickers, animals, pens, puzzles, books, cars, airplanes, army dudes, legos

Amber (5): Tangles, crafts, music, stickers, pens, animals, puzzles, books, dolls...

Pretty much the girls love girlie stuff, the boys like boyish stuff, all of them love being crafty, artsy, they love hats, scarves, funky socks for the girls, etc. They like old fashioned things. They are all pretty easy going, and love the thought behind a gift as much as the gift. :)

They all have their own wish lists on my Amazon wish list link. :)


Comment: I never received it. It's been long enough even with consideration of your loss.

Hiya, I never got your list for the Activity Advent Calendar swap. I could have missed it in my rather large inbox so if you tell me what date you sent it I can look more specifically!

Cheers, Itti.

ladydy5 on Nov 14, 2011:

I see you are in my swap Find 3 #2. Sure hope you will be able to send by send date, and that you got your swap already.
Any problems, and we do have them occassionally, please contact your swapper that you are delayed. All those hearts are great that you got.

We Are So Differents But We Are So Similarity

My hair is always some odd color, every time I dye back to a "normal" color, I immediately want to change it back to something funky. I also love wearing cute hair things like feathers, flowers and vintage-esque pin up hair accessories. I just love to accessorize, period. It takes me forever to find the perfect accessories before I leave the house, I have soooo much!!! I love crazy socks, especially the ones made for kids; those are always the best. I'm just learning to crochet, I actually made a slouchy beret last night. I also like turning junk into treasure, my speciality is reconstructing clothes. I love just about anything vintage, espcially cameras and typewriters. Happy Swapping!

Thanks for the lovely comment!! It's so nice to meet you.

Laynie on Sep 29, 2011:

OMG!!! Your name is Audra too? I come across people with that name soooo rarely! My dad wanted to name me Audrey after his mom, but since her and my mom didn't quite get along...they settled on Audra:-) I've always loved my name...and I hope you love yours too!!!
