About Me

I am a civil engineering grad student at UAHuntsville with a concentration in environmental engineering. I ran on the track team at UAH as an undergrad, but am now retired. :) I love art, but I'm better at crafting. I love camping, singing, Greek mythology, eating desserts, and I Love Trees! I am married to my wonderful husband who also attends UAH and pole vaults for the track team. I have two dachshunds (the dogs that look like hotdogs), and I love all animals. I'm half Cuban so I love learning about the country's culture and history (the beautiful and the ugly).

Likes: Trees, Animals, Caramel Cadbury Eggs, Fairies, Nature, Candy/Cookies/Pie/Cake... Sweets in general, Green and grey are my favorite colors, Birds/bird cages, Black tea - my favorites are Earl Grey and English Breakfast, Greek Mythology, Musicals, anything Alice in Wonderland!!!!!

Not so crazy about: Hello Kitty, too much pink, black liquerice. I understand many people love these things... they just aren't for me.

I never rate down for not liking something. I never even rate down for the swap being late. As long as I receive it I will give you a 5.

Favorite Television

I love The Office, The League, Always Sunny in Philadelphia, My Name Is Earl, Bones, How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory, Weeds, That 70's Show, Avatar: The Last Air Bender, American Horror Story, and any type of trivia show. I like to watch other shows, but nothing regularly.

Favorite Books

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Through the Lookin Glass, The Looking Glass Wars trilogy (spin on Alice In Wonderland), Series of Unfortunate Events (I'll never be too old for them), Harry Potter series, anything related to Alice in Wonderland, and anything else that can keep my attention. I love a good classic because lets face it... they're classic!

Favorite Crafts

I'm starting my second scrapbook soon, but I'm collecting anything Alice in Wonderland realted before I start. Anything Alice realted would be greatly appreated! I like cooking, and I love baking. I used to sew a lot, and even though I don't do it as often anymore, I still enjoy it when I do. I have a very large ATC collection that I am still working on making even bigger!

Favorite Music

I love almost all music! The only exceptions are most country (I can get into a few of the songs), the heaviest of heavy rock, and some rap songs that just don't work for me. I love jazz, rock, hip hop, rap, reggae, ska, big band/swing, techno, Kpop, r&b, indie, latin(I love Cuban Radio on Pandora)...

My favorite artist is Ingrid Michaelson.

Wish List

Things I still need to get my crafting off the ground: Nature themed "stuff", Clear Stamps, pretty much anything a scrapbooker uses. Hah. My supplies are limited at this point, but my imagination is endless!

Thank you to everyone that sent snow themed extras. I was able to finish my first scrapbook with them!

My 3s

To all potential swap hosts. I had a mixup and sent a swap late. It is frustrating, but it's in the past. I always send, and I always rate.

Flakers :(

Hi Alex, just wondering if you have received the ATC Bag #3 from me? I mailed it on the 24th of August. I'm more than happy to resend if it never arrived!

Thank you for sending back my ATC Bag - that was fun! :)

Sorry for my delay in letting you know but I got the angel package you sent for the Speedy ATCs awhile back. Haven't been on here much for various reasons. I LOVE these ATCs!! Thank you SOO much!!

Stuff happens and I hope you get to feeling better soon. Life is fleeting and people can be so unnecessarily brutal about trivial things at times. Take care of yourself :)
