Please contact me with any issues or concerns with my swaps. I read the PM.s sent to me. So please contact me using the Pm rather then the email. Thank you FYI....Also I pick up my mail between one and two times a week. No fear I always rate. I have my swaps go to a P.O.Box. I am not a flaker nor am I non rater.
On My Days Off...
I can be found relaxing at home.Or out with my family & friends. I love to shop at craft stores.I am always on the look out for bargains.
When I am not bargain hunting.I usually can be found snapping pictures or reading a book by the waters edge. Or spending time with my family & friends.That is really what I enjoy.
Yes I have = (
.Family & Friends: I enjoy spending time with my family & friends.
.COLLECTING: Used & Vintage Postage Stamps. From the beach: Stones, Rocks, Sea Glass, & Seashells. Pressed Pennies.Vintage Clothes Buttons.
.Shopping: When I shop for Crafts. I like to check out the sales & clearance first.Brads,Eyelets,Sizzix & Sizzlits, all types and also Paper Punches, Fancy Paper,Clear Stamps & Card Stock to use on My Cricut Expression Machine.Assorted Earth Tones,Greens,Blues,Pinks.Just about Any Color Paper & such are fine. I use different color combos for different paper projects.Cards,Gift Tags,Postcards,Greetings Cards,Note Cards,Invites & Scrapbooking Pages.
.Snapping Pictures: I usually Photograph Nature.Beautiful landscapes,Light Houses,Animal's.I love to Photograph Horse's & Dog's.If it stays still long enough I will take a shot.
.Beads: I have a great collection of beads & such. I have made several silver & beaded bracelets, over the years.I spent a lot of time traveling to different bead expo's over the years.No so much now.I use a lot of natural beads.Most of theses are either chips with drilled holes for beading & the rest are kind of small beads also drilled.Such as,Lapis,Brown Agate,Jade,Black Onyx,Rose Quatz,Mahogany Obsidian.I have some Wooded Beads & glass ones also..I use sterling silver clasps & findings.What I bead I give as gifts.Although I have made plenty for people who saw & wanted to buy.I do not use Gold color charms or finding at all.
Beading Fun: When I bead with the kids, we use wooden beads,fake look a like Troll & Pandora beads.
.Family: Spending time with my son's & husband.Be it out to dinner or a walk on the boardwalk.Family dinner.Sometimes just talking an taking a walk though a small town checking out the stores together.Also, hanging out with my nieces & playing with my niece and nephews.Talking on the Phone to my brother's.And spending time with them and their families.With everyone working and so busy.It is very hard at times to connect with my siblings & their families.More so now that we lost our mom to Cancer back in 2009.I really would like to have more time with all of them.
Misc.....I no longer use much Gold.I prefer silver.I have a Pandora Bracelet.My family & friends helped fill it with many beads.I have a few beads from Troll Charms also.FYI ... I have seen really cute fake beads at Flea Markets for a buck.I buy them to use when I bead with my niece. She loves bracelets.
If I had to choose my favorite color, I would say green.Not Neon Green or Anything Neon.Then my next fave color would be blue, like blue jeans. Also,Earth tones, which are simple & go with just about everything I have.
I also love pink & brown, when paired together.Many shades of green are appealing to my eye.Also pink alone & brown alone.
Purple is nice, all depends on what it is.When it comes to paper & color, the sky is the limit.I use a lot of card stock paper & scrapbook paper.
I Do Not Expect Anyone to go crazy, looking around for these things to send to me. JUST Expanding My Profile.And trying not to be a pain in the butt. :)
ALSO PLEASE DO NOT SEND . . . Makeup,Creams,Lotion's,Perfume Or Anything Scented What So Ever.Most Products give me Mad Head Aches for some reason. With one or two exceptions. I use Essential Oil's from Young Living Inc. I also use Scented Candles from Yankee Candles. Which are fine for me to use.I do not get head aches.
No need to worry,cause I will not sign onto a swap, that call for these things.It would make no sense. I can only use certain products.Products that are hard to find.
Swap bot is about having fun, not stress. Since I have to be very careful of what I can use & wear.I would never put myself in a situation that will cause confusion.Such as joining a swap that calls for Spa & Bath Products Etc. Cause if I did & my partner read my profile, from top to bottom.They would be confused as hell. Or at least after Reading this section of my profile that is,LOL...
