About Me

I am a writer, a reader, a poet, a photographer. I live in Kentucky. I'm liberal. I'm non-religious, but spiritual. I love setting goals. I am a night owl and love staying up late/sleeping in! I am a crafting junkie and uber-geeky. If you can teach me something I don't already know, I love it! I'm into eco-living to reduce waste. I just got my first sewing machine, and I love it. I'd love project ideas! I wish I had the money to hire someone to be my personal organizer. I can't keep things where they're supposed to be, let alone keep track of what needs to be done!

Favorite Music

They Might Be Giants is my absolute favorite band. I also like the (now defunct) Dixie Chicks, Dan Fogleberg, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, the Indigo Girls, Barenaked Ladies

Favorite Books

Madeleine L'Engle(my hero!) Anything by Jim Butcher. George R.R. Martin, Charlaine Harris. Jennifer Rardin is a current favorite. Laurel K. Hamilton, J.R. Ward, Cat Adams/CT Adams & Cathy Clamp, Phaedra Weldon, Patricia Briggs, Lilith St. Crow, Kim Harrison, Kelly Armstrong. Basically anything urban fantasy. I am a bookworm, and mostly I'll read just about anything.

Favorite Television

current: Bones, The Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, Castle, Shameless, Eureka, Warehouse 13, Psych, Game of Thrones, Rizzoli & Isles, The Closer, Doctor Who, Leverage, NCIS

Older: Farscape, Stargate SG-1, Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek, MacGyver, Scarecrow & Mrs. King, Firefly/Serenity

I lprefer TV over movies.

Likes/Dislikes

Likes: *MINI ZINES!!! *Writing *Postcards *Sailboats *Vegetarianism *Eco-awareness *Castles *Poetry *Quotes *Historic sites *Geekyness *Deep thoughts *Inspiration *British culture(but not the royals) *Quirkyness *Ocean/rivers/waterfalls/fountains/anything water *Shiny! *Religious traditions, especially non-Christian *Mosques/Temples/Cathedrals/Basilicas *Meditation *Owls *Penguins *Bookmarks *Road trips *Journaling *Chunky books *Comic Cons *Steampunk

Dislikes: *Strongly scented items(allergies!) *Candy(I'm diabetic, so this isn't a true dislike, but a health-related one.)--The exception is Stroopwafels from the Netherlands! *Religious items *Closed-minded people *Hate *Glitter

Colors

Anything gold or silver rocks, but I am anti-glitter! I love dark colors like hunter green, navy blue, and burgundy. Any shade of purple but again, I like dark colors. Reds are OK, with maroons preferred.

I dislike orange, pink, and I'm not terribly crazy about yellow.

Swapping

I promise never to flake! I am unorganized and a bit ADD. I am absolutely horrible at meeting deadlines. I will ALWAYS get it to you. It may be a little late, but I try to make it within the 2 week deadline. I try to communicate with my partner when I am going to be late, but I'm not always great at that either. I do appreciate understanding in these situations. I try to make or send the best I can and I don't want to rush it and send something that you don't like.

As for rating, I may take a while to rate as well. It doesn't mean that I haven't received the swap, it just means that I've gotten behind in rating!

Comment: Bea, I rarely give a three but I'm very bothered by the way you handled this swap. Your excuse for sending late was very lame. I do not want to spell out the problems in a comment others can read so I will PM you.
Response: This is an unreasonable rating. The swap was fulfilled within approximately 3 days of the send-by date. Your personal feelings about my hosting of the swap are not a reason to give a 3 when the swap was fulfilled and received within 2 weeks. Hosting is a learning experience, and you have given me no slack for hosting this type of swap for the 1st time.

Comment: Ahhhh, so interesting! I loved your package. I'm super excited to correspond with you and send you some paper crafts. You're cards - how the...? Really pretty. Is it a paper press of some kind? The zine.....oh it's been ages since I have seen one or made one! I will write back soon. Take care
Response: It was a paper press! I wish I had one myself, but I was at a friend's house who had the envelopes and press. I'm glad you liked it!

I'm getting a kick out of the mailings for Stop Boring Mondays. Got the ee cummings poem the other day.

Artistic on May 2, 2012:

Got your first -- awesome -- letter for the Boring Mondays swap.

ElizabethObviously on Jan 20, 2012:

Yes my swap of the Songs That Mean So Much is newbie friendly! At least I thought I had marked it as that. course by the time you get this, it will be too late. :( Would you like to do a one on one for this?
