About Me

UPDATES:This past week, I started at the local vocational school to earn my certificate as a Nursing Assistant. This is something that I had always wanted to do, but never got to. Anywho, this is my first step in becoming a Rehabilitative RN. Next I am enrolling in the LVN program. I am going to fulfill all swaps tha ti am currently in, but after that my attendance here at Swap-Bot will probably be rather spotty, as the programs that I have enrolled in are not traditional classroom settings. They are shorter programs, and so very condensed and WHOLE lot of work.

So, in short, I am trying to get caught up on ratings! I've got a three day weekend this week, so hopefully I will get all of that caught up.

~Recipes/Foodstuffs/Teas~

Slow cooker recipes, soups, casseroles, Asian food, sushi recipes, coffee, Tazo teas, hot chocolate/cappuccino/frappuccino recipes, desert recipes, pasta recipes, any recipes from overseas - I am always looking for new things to try!

~Crafts~

crochet, card making, knitting, paper crafts, cooking, sewing. I also want to learn how to quilt. I love ATCs, inchies, and scrabble tile pendants. I'm looking forward to trying my hand at book binding and making journals.

~My Other Halves~

Chris is a huge nerd. The television would be on the science channel all the time if he had his way. He loves puzzles, chess, science, and Yu-Gi-Oh! cards.

Lunabelle loves chasing anything that makes a crunchy noise. Her favorite toy is an old Gatorade bottle that I covered with fabric to make sure she can't get to the plastic. She also loves her teething ring. She's a big snuggle fan, and spends her nights curled up on the couch in her blanket.

~La-La-La-Love~

I love postcards. I want to collect one from every state. Handmade ones are great, too. They all go into a big album I have. :) I'm also a big fan of pretty stationary, letter sets, handmade envelopes and address labels. Handmade envelopes have become my latest addiction. And, of course, one can never underestimate the power of a smooth-writing pen.

Dislikes/Don't Need

I am highly allergic to peanuts, so that's a "no no." I am also not a fan of Ren and Stimpy. I haven't seen much mention of them on this site, but it is the one show that I just cannot stand to watch.

Of course, anything you send is greatly appreciated and anticipated excitedly. Dislikes are only meant to give some kind of guidance for swaps that are based on the profile.

Pen Pals

I love writing letters, and I would love to have pen pals. If you are interested, just let me know. :)

hi! awhile ago you participated in one or more alphabet recipe postcard swaps. I have been given permission to restart them. I am starting with "I" but I will also run, soon, a few catch-up swaps for missed letters. If you are interested, the swap is here: http://www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/87122. I hope you'll join!

Hey girl, im going to be your coloring swap pal..lol..its a cute idea so I joined..I was also wondering if you would like a pen-pal from NYC, we have some similar interests...look for my letter soon as well as some extras as it would be stupid to get just a colored pic in the mail...I'll send a written intro letter of course. If you want to be pals just write back, but if not then enjoy the swap:) Peace+Love+Icecream:)
