OK I will be taking a little time off from swapping. Right now I can't deal with the stresses of the holidays with the two kids and work and putting my whole heart into this. I've been trying to keep up but apparently my efforts were not enough! Unfortunately, not everything is foreseeable and this season has become a little overwhelming! I should be back... I've enjoyed meeting so many of you - Thanks! (Yes, I will fulfill my last swap)
My apologies to anyone who has not received a rating from me. I have a pile of swaps that I will be rating as soon as I can, I promise!!! Please don't think that your work has gone unnoticed, I just haven't had a chance yet!
Please please please let me know if you don't receive something! I ALWAYS send and pm if there is ever a delay or an issue! I would prefer to send a little late and give you something of quality instead a thrown together mess. Also, I LOVE checking my ratings, so please don't forget to rate when you do receive a swap! My hubby thinks I am crazy because he says I am an "overachiever" with these swaps, but hey, if you are gonna do something, you might as well do it right, right?!
I'm a married, mommy. I have two very active little girls and an amazing husband, who is a chef/instructor. I love making him teach me new skills and techniques. I think I'm coming along pretty darn well as a cook, if I do say so myself...
I'm a certified athletic trainer and certified strength and conditioning specialist, but I've also been a weight Watchers member since November of 2005.
I LOVE chocolate and food... I love crafting and have started to make some "toolbox" jewelry! I just went to a "bead store" and could have probably spent my entire paycheck on the washers and stuff that they had! I am in love with the sterling silver, pewter, and stone jewelry accessories to use with my new found craft... man, I definitely need more time in a day!
I am a HUGE DIYer when it comes to doing my house. I've done it all!! My husband would think something was wrong if I didn't have a project (or two) going... lol
I LOVE collecting craft stuff. I like stickers, stamps, brads, all that stuff. Also, I LOVE paper! I am especially OBSESSED with the A6 sized paper packs. I feel in love with making ppostcards now... LMAO! I just started dmaking them this week. I seriously love dragonflies... I just bought a ring with dragonflies all over it. I just love them! I love to cook, bake, basically experiment in the kitchen, so I love super easy cookbooks for cookies, desserts, one dish meals and appetizers, AND now with the hot weather coming in, I can't have too many warm weather recipes! Hmmm.... I also love craft books. I have a few, but I've found that am great at making things if I have a starting point, so those are always good.
I love music. Right now I have Daughtry (rock), Queen (classic rock), Dixie Chicks (country), an 80s and early 90s mixed CD, and Dr. Seuss Favorites in my car CD changer.. lol.
I listen to mostly country (the new "pop/country" some of the older stuff.
I'm not a huge bookworm because I don't really have time with the two kids and stuff, but I love mommy books. My favorite is "I used to be really good mom until I had kids". It's awesome. I also fell in love with Nora Ephron, she wrote "When Harry Met Sally" and if you like that movie, you will enjoy her books!
I also love nutrition books - I know thats weird, but Body for Life, Sports Nutrition, stuff like that. I also use exercise and stretching books a LOT at work.
I'm a chick-flick/light comedy person. I can't get into the epics or the super action movies anymore. I'm also not a big fan of the raunchy comedies (ie. old school, superbad, etc)
I love When Hary Met Sally, My best friends wedding, Devil wears prada, Labyrinth, princess bride. I just saw Sex and the City and although I didn't watch the show much before, I think I'm hooked! I told my husband that it is a must have as soon as it comes out on DVD.
I am a DIY/home improvement freak... I am constantly watching them! I keep trying to get organized but life keeps getting in the way. I also love the food network and fit tv.
I love crafting, but keep putting off doing any of it for real. I started dabbling with the toolbax jewerly after I was inspired by the book. I love geometrics and abstract stuff. I like the hard lines and jewel tones. I add to my collection of crafts with Target's dollar sections and Joann Fabric Clearance (so the hubby doesn't get as upset). I gotta tell ya though, since I started making things for Swap-bot, he's been pretty impressed and not so upset if I find a new crafty item I just "have to have"!!
OK... so I love to cook, bake, etc. Now, I am even trying harder to get the kids involved in the cooking process!! We don't have any allergies and since joining WW, I am now even eating veggies... go me!! I love recipes, I love creating them even more with Chef Hubby! OK - so pretty much, food rocks! Bring it on!!
