Army wife to my prince charming. Pet parent to a chinchilla (Zelda) and a Chihauhau-Pomeranian pup named Rigby, who is a 7 and a half pound ball of energy. New(ish) mother to a gorgeous baby girl, Coraline, who was born last July. She is, of course, the love of my life, and every day is a new adventure with her. Though I'm sure it's nothing compared to once she becomes mobile! Adapting to my new role has taken some time and energy, so I've been on a swap-bot hiatus since last Spring when my pregnancy got complicated, but I'm itching to get back into the swing of things.
I'm a video gamer from NES to PS3. I have a short attention span and am easily distracted (as shown by the many crafts I will attempt). I change my life goals daily based on whatever I see as I tend to be easily influenced. For example-I want to join a roller derby (Whip It). Also, hunt snakes (Dirty Jobs). I have a degree in interior design but unfortunately I haven't put it to much use outside of our own home. Kansas isn't really the thriving design center one would expect it to be.
The Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin. The Shining. Memoirs of a Geisha. Anything 'classic'. Wicked. Harry Potter. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Stephen King (I am working to own all of his books). Nicholas Sparks. Honestly absolutely anything- I LOVE reading (and my Nook, but I'm up for a good old fashioned paperback any day of the week)!
Nightmare Before Christmas. The Notebook. Repo! The Genetic Opera. Anything and everything Disney [my favorites are probably Alice (new and old), The Little Mermaid, Wall-e and James and the Giant Peach]. Juno. Battle Royale. August Rush. Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Moulin Rouge. Over the Hedge. Suicide Club. Sweeney Todd. Coraline. Letters to Juliet.
Futurama. Avatar: The Last Airbender. Friends. Rocko's Modern Life. Family Guy. Kate Plus 8. Dirty Jobs. Aqua Teen Hunger Force. Miami Ink. Gilmore Girls (If I had to pick one favorite it would be GG for sure). Angry Beavers. The Oblongs. Cake Boss. Sealab 2021. House. Lost. Say Yes to the Dress. Pawn Stars. Hoarders. American Pickers.
Knitting. ATCs. Scrapbooking. Sewing. Cross-stitch. Quilting (I'm still very much a beginner at quilting though, all squares and rectangles so far). I also like to dabble in pretty much any other craft/project-jewelry making, whimsey jars, matchboxes, homemade envelopes, stamp carving.
Beatles. All-American Rejects. Great Big Sea. Beach Boys. Lady Gaga. Maroon 5. Taylor Swift. Lady Antebellum. Enrique Iglesias. Colbie Caillat. Backstreet Boys. Carrie Underwood. Avril Lavigne. Hanson. Keane. Musicals/soundtracks. Kelly Clarkson. Aerosmith. The Clarks. Michael Buble. Weird Al Yankovic.
For swapping purposes please nothing with sugar -I'm diabetic. Fake sugar is perfectly acceptable. Unless of course I sign up for a swap or tag specifically for something with sugar in it-we all deserve a little treat once in awhile :)
Hot pink (not pale pink or any pastels). Overly bright colors (not neon). Anything vibrant and very saturated with color. "Happy" blues (think turquoise, sky blue, anything that makes you happy to look at it). Any color pair that includes brown (our wedding colors were turquoise and chocolate brown). Lime Green. Jewel tones. Almost any color that isn't grass green or orange. I love color. A lot.
People who unfortunately have not rated me for sent swaps or who have not sent their swaps and have been unresponsive to PM...
