I'm an easy going gal from Texas with a hubby and 2 kids.
I like to make a variety of crafts; handmade cards, ornaments, decorated envies, jewelry, and other paper and holiday crafts.
My heart skips a beat for all things vintage, and I can spend hours rummaging for treasures at thrift stores, antique shops, and flea markets.
I also love baking, gardening and reading; these 'loves' reflect my need to make/eat things to satisfy my sweet tooth, tend to something natural that can bring about beauty and sustenance, and fuel my brain to promote life long learning.
Other past times include: road trips, gulf coast fishing, concerts, Spurs Basketball (My husband and I have been season ticket holders for over 10 years), arts/crafts with my kids, and spending time with family and friends. We have lots of get-togethers for no reason or for someone's birthday and/or most holidays :)
Themes: Cupcakes, Strawberries, Polka Dots, Ladybugs, and Snoopy/Peanuts Characters.
Colors: Pink, Lime green, Red, Black and jewel tones like Fuschia, Teal, Emerald Green, etc.
Snacks: Gummy candy, candy corn and taffy are my all time favorite treats! I do like chocolate, but am not a "chocoholic" and prefer sour and/or chewy type candies. I would love to try any specialty candy from wherever you live.
Crafting Supplies: Colorful sharpies or pens, stickers (sheets or loose), embellishments, acrylic or rubber stamps, ink pads, blank/plain notecards, envies (store-bought or hand-made), stick-on jewels/bling, and fun/colorful buttons.
Handmade Items: Cards, envies, embellishments, crochet and hand knit items, ornaments, jewelry, hair pins/barrettes, etc.
Holidays: Absolutely LOVE holiday themed items like decorations, knick knacks, craft kits, notecards, socks, etc...
I also love,LoVe, LOVE reusable shopping/grocery bags!
Anything fun, quirky, cute or different; I love surprises!!!
My daughters are 6 and 3 1/2, and love to receive mail! They like just about anything, but favorites include: sticker sheets, temp. tattoos, coloring pages, craft kits/supplies, and anything fun from the dollar store/bins.
I really do like most things, but I'm not a fan of incense, concentrated oils or anything Vanilla, Eucalyptus, or Patchouli scented.
RATINGS - Once I receive a swap package I'll submit a rating for my partner and would appreciate the same. If you don't receive something from me, PLEASE send me a message and let me know BEFORE you give me a rating. I will gladly re-send when I am given the courtesy of knowing that something was not received.
FLAKERS - This is one of my LEAST favorite lists to make, but unfortunately, someone is on it: Shandi for Cupcake Package Swap; Have yet to receive anything :(
