UPDATE:9-6-17:Slowly trying to recover from the death of an immediate family member. I'll still try to remain somewhat active. Hopefully it might help the grieving process. Thank you for your support and prayers. If I haven't rated you I have a pile of things I need to rate I'll get to them as soon as I can.
UPDATE: 7-19-17: I have suffered a tragic loss in my family and will rate the swaps when I can. I have several swaps I need to go through and rate but will do so as soon as I get time. Please keep my family in your prayers.
Hello. I'm Nicole. I'm a 31, married (almost 9 years), with 2 children. I also have 4 cats and 1 dog. I don't smoke and I like a nice margaritia on the rocks every now and then. I'm an introvert. I also have bi-polar and take medicine for it. I don't have many friends because I've been burned so many times. I hate being used. I am close to my family. One thing I have learned is family is always there for you and friends come and go. I'd rather stay home with a book or a movie on the couch than go out and party. I love tattoos and have 8 or 9 of them. I have some college but no completed degrees yet. Right now I'm just being a mom and for now that's enough.
CRAFTING: Swapping is so much fun for me! I am also a dedicated scrapbooker. My kids each have a book and it's updated regularly. I have also been dabbling in some painting lately and so far I'm proud of my work. I also love to color and I color a lot--it relaxes me and I get something beautiful out of my stress.
SWAP-BOT Sent/Received: I will try to post pictures of most of my swaps that I send on the link above.
Anything that I can dance to. When I want to unwind and relax I like to listen to Mat Kearny, John Mayer, Enya....slow and meaningful songs. I also like country music too. Only music I don't like is heavy heavy rock and heavy rap.
Favorite singer currently: Sam Hunt
I have a kindle but prefer paperback books. Jodi Picoult is favorite author and I have even met her in person but I haven't read much of her lately. I also love Chelsea Cain and her Archie and Gretchen series. I typically read fiction novels....no cheesy romance novels though. I love going to go a used bookstore and browsing and I usually find something I'm interested in that they have on display.
Dirty Dancing and True Romance are my favorites. So is Beauty and the Beast. I also love any and all super hero movies and action movies. Really the only thing I'm not a fan of are scary movies. I have to watch them at home with all the lights on and my pillow to hide behind.
Game of Thrones, The 100, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, the Flash, Orange is the New Black, The Killing. Just to name a few. I don't have cable so I have netflix and Hulu. Not interested in reality TV except for America's Got Talent, The Profit, The Shark Tank.
SENDING OUT POSTCARDS; I know I can't make everyone happy but I always look at profiles and try to send something within my stash. I don't have a big stash but I'm working on building it slowly. I also have a binder that I keep my favorite PCs in.
POSTCARD LIKES-vintage, bright and colorful flowers, peacocks, animals--dogs and cats. I like some toruist postcards--ones with neat monuments, map postcards I love, state or country facts. Love funny or adult humor PCs. I love weird, handmade, colorful, fun postcards.
POSTCARD DISLIKES--plain/boring, ones with flags on them, snakes/insects, don't sent me a PC out of your stash that you don't like just to get rid of it
GOODIE LIKES: Starbucks, Oreos, Twix, chocolate covered pretzels, white chocolate, Reese's, Giradelle filled caramel----nothing with nuts please!
Adult coloring---I have a binder with plastic sleeves that I keep things people have colored me and some of my work.
I love ANYTHING handmade. If you make me something handmade I will cherish it forever! I like inspirational things.
Fun and decorated envelopes
Rainbows and colorful and bright flowers
Bath and body works stuff
Washi tape---my newest obsession
Starbucks and hot chocolate
Handmade items! Would love some of your artwork or drawings, crochet things, handmade cards or handmade jewelry. Not picky!
Peacocks! I love anything with peacocks--they are my absolute favorite--i have 2 peacock tattoos!
Animals-especially cats! I have 4 cats and 1 dog.
colors: I like bold and bright colors
Inspirational quotes/things that aren't religious
♥I know I shouldn't, but I take it personally when someone rates me a 5 with no comment and no heart. I really do my best to make my partner smile but I guess you can't please everyone! If you get a swap from me and don't like it at least a thank you would be nice!
DISLIKES: It's really difficult to make me unhappy but there are things that drive me crazy:
Sloppy work that looks like you were rushing to get it sent out
Anything Frozen related---cannot STAND Frozen! (I do like disney---prefferable Beauty and the Beast)
Things sent without a note---I think it's really impersonal to do that.
Things smelling of smoke
Letters sent to me that are actually just a copy that's sent to every swapper. I prefer personal handwritten letters. (CANNOT STAND when people do this---so impersonal!)
people who don't take the time to rate or read profiles or people who rate and don't leave a comment or at least say thank you!
Fabric (I don't sew and have no use for it)
Scrap paper--I am a big scrapbooker and have plenty of paper...I only buy what I need
Politics---never ends well
RELIGION--I'm not religious and don't need it or want to talk about it.....which some people see that and think I"m not a good person...I assure you just because I don't practice a religion does not make me a bad or mean or unkind person. And I would never judge you by what you believe in. I won't push my beliefs on you just as I would like the same in return.
♥Here are some wish list items & I'll try to update them regularly
Bath bombs--love them!
Books--any fiction novels that you think I might like based on my book favorites in the book section
Washi tape! Love love love it!
Handmade pot holders
Bookmarks--I still read paperback books. No free advertising bookmarks.
hair pins/bobby pins/small hair clips--I am always loosing these and having to replace them constantly
stickers--any except holiday or reward ones
Stationary to write on
