===== I am currently in the process of moving. Though I may be MIA for a few days at a time, I am still here and still intend to be active on Swap-Bot. :) =====
I am a Texan, born and raised. In July, I will be marrying my high school sweetheart of eight years. In August, we will be moving with our Lab mix, Luna, across state where I will be beginning my Master's in Social Work.
Even though I am passionate about my career, I love the idea of being a wife and homemaker. I spend a lot of time reading blogs about crafting, cooking and homemaking and recently (as in a couple of days ago!) started one of my own. I have the link here in my profile if you care to check it out.
Crafting My favorite crafts are crochet, cross-stitch and latch-hook. I also enjoy photography, sewing and zentangles. I've just recently begun artistic journaling and am interested in journal swaps and friendship books.
Recipes I love trying out new recipes and new cuisines!! I also love receiving said recipes on pretty cards. :) Just about anything you send I will love, but my favorite recipes include:
breakfasts slow cooker (crockpot) cakes, cupcakes and cookies spinach artichoke dips breads easy/fast meals restaurant copycat recipes pistachio butters / spreads shakes/smoothies
I am also always on the lookout for diabetic-friendly meals. I am not diabetic, but my mother is, and she seems to be of the mind that all food that is good for you has to taste bad. I try to send yummy recipes her way to remind her that she doesn't have to eat like a rabbit in order to stay healthy!
Tea, Cocoa and Coffee I love all kinds of tea, but my favorite is Chai. I also love recipes that use tea as a main ingredient. I love dark chocolate cocoa and strong arabica coffee, but like I said in my recipe section, I am always open to trying new things!
Books My favorite authors are Paulo Coelho and Kurt Vonnegut. A few of my favorite books are Executioner's Song by Norman Mailer, Catcher in the Rye by JD Salinger, and the Harry Potter series. I have a very dry and dark sense of humor. It takes a lot to offend me, so don't even worry about adult themes, vocabulary, etc. I also love graphic novels, but I'm not a fan of anime or manga.
I also enjoy books about the following subjects: crafting, crochet, mystery, hauntings, cryptozoology, true crime, Kurt Cobain/Nirvana, the Zodiac killer, animals, vampires, werewolves, monsters, Unitarian Universalist, paganism, and wicca.
Music I love all types of music, but I mostly listen to Alternative. I'm always looking for new or additional bands/singers to check out, so feel free to send suggestions my way! My favorite bands are Blue October, Nirvana, Creed, Seether, Matchbox Twenty, and Alanis Morrissette. I also enjoy some folksy music, such as Nickel Creek and Mumford and Sons.
Movies I'm not a huge movie buff, but I loveloveLOVE Kevin Smith and Disney movies. I am a HUGE Clerks fan and collect memorabilia. I am not a huge fan of horror or gore. It doesn't particularly bother me - I'm just not into it.
colors: earth tones, but my favorites are brown, blue, sage, ivory, burnt orange and red sparrows, owls and penguins Hello Kitty and Chococat pretty stationary pretty writing utensils postcards journals scrapbooking materials stickers jewelry woodland animals ATCs address labels astrology and new age post-it notes Christmas decorations recipe cards paper crafts candles bath salts/bombs keychains collages Calendars Bookmarks pet (dog) items - Luna loves tug toys and stuffed animals most of all! Please, though, no dog treats. I'm sure that everyone here is a great person, but I don't feed Luna anything that I have not bought or made myself :) I do appreciate recipes for doggie treats, though!
All of these things I am willing to send in return :)
Additional Notes I do have a dog, Luna. She is a whippet/Lab mix and she does, unfortunately, shed like crazy. I always make sure that no dog fur goes out with my packages, but if you are deathly allergic to animal dander, it would probably be a good idea to not swap with me. Other than that, there is no smoking, etc in my home, so there shouldn't be any other problems for swappers with allergies.
