About Me

I'm married and have 1 dog and 2 cats. I'm a teacher librarian. I love to travel.

Please! If you don't receive a swap from me, let me know and I will be happy to re-send. I have found that the USPS cannot be trusted. They even returned to me the entire top inch of an envelope I sent, the rest of which was just lost due to their machine tearing it up.

If you receive something from me with postage due, please tell me and I will reimburse you for it.

Please rate me--I want to know that you received my swap because I DO NOT flake!

Likes / Dislikes

While I like anything that a person is nice enough to send me, I don't particularly care for cartoon-themed items or country/western items.

And please, no friendship books, decos, etc.--I don't swap those.

My favorite color is red, but I like all colors.

Following are some particular likes:

notecards, handmade or store-bought

stationery, handmade or store-bought

washi tape--any design, any size

ribbon, lace, fibers--any length

Favorite Crafts

I'm not an artist by any means, but I love to make greeting cards and other paper crafts like bookmarks. Pinterest has provided me with much inspiration! Thanks to Swap-bot, I've gotten interested in ATCs, inchies, and altered books/notebooks!

I also love to cross-stitch--I guess because I can't draw pretty pictures, I get some satisfaction out of stitching them.

Favorite Books

Currently Reading: Later by Stephen King

Favorite book? I just love books period. If I could make a living by reading, I'd be in heaven! I'm a long time Stephen King fan. I enjoy several different genres, but I tend to lean toward fantasy-- alternate realities, dystopian societies, mythical creatures, etc. I'm not a big fan of westerns or nonfiction, though, especially not self-help. I'm in a book club that meets once a month.

Favorite Music

I like alternative music best. Alanis Morissette, Muse, Florence + the Machine, Hurts, Of Monsters and Men, Mumford and Sons, Sia, etc. But I also like 80's music, some Pop music (but not teen-agery music like Justin Bieber), classical sometimes, some hard rock. I'm not a fan of country music, but there are a few country songs I like.

Favorite Movies

Latest movie watched: I Smile Back Netflix DVD

I love going to the movies. I just love the dark theater, the big screen, the loud sound, and the popcorn! I always go with my sister and husband. I prefer horror, action/adventure, thriller, mystery, sci-fi, and drama more than comedy and romantic. But I'll go see those as well. I also like foreign films and don't mind reading subtitles. Some of the best movies I've seen are foreign. I like some old movies, but I don't tend to be drawn to those.

Favorite Television

The TV keeps me company. I don't necessarily need to be watching it, but I like having it on. However, I do have several shows that I love.

Amazing Race, Vikings, NCIS, Big Bang Theory, This is Us, Doctor Who, The Great British Baking Show, and The Graham Norton Show--I know I'm leaving some out, but those are the ones that are on right now that I watch. Some shows that I love that have been or will soon be cancelled are Grimm, Fringe, Psych, Warehouse 13, Alphas, Longmire, Almost Human, Being Human, and Firefly.

Comment: What a lovely, artsy floral card! The stitching is a nice touch too. In answer to your question about the nice memento, two cards are in the mail to you.
Response: I'm glad you like it! I got your card for this swap a few days after I mailed mine, so your card answered my question! Thanks for the heart!

Comment: Hi Anita, Thank you for the wonderful haiku you wrote for my Profile page. The haiku paints a beautiful picture of the blooming of an iris. The flowers you described are one of my favorite flowers. My favorite flower is the tulip. I am sorry for being slow in getting you rated. Swaps in and out of Colorado along with other mail has been and continues to be slow. This is for mail coming in and mail going out. I enjoyed swapping with you and I hope we can do it again. Happy Swapping! Barb sleepingrover2010
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it! Irises are beautiful, aren't they. Mail is slow here, too. I'll be glad when it gets back to normal. Thanks for the heart!

Comment: Thanks for the resend. I think that your lie was that you were orphaned at 6.
Response: I'm glad you got it! My parents did die when I was 6, but we lived with various family members, so we weren't put in an orphanage. I also did live in Africa for two years. Thanks for the heart!

Comment: Thank you for sharing. I love the pretty butterfly notecard. Four of my best friends and I recently read that book. Heavy discussions followed. However on a lighter note, I’m a huge fan of the characters; ‘Jack Reacher’, ‘Alex Cross’, and ‘Hercule Poirot’. Haha
Response: I'm glad you like the card! Yes, I would prefer those detectives and thriller characters as well! Thanks for the heart!

Comment: Anita, such a pretty card! I love hydrangeas too. I watched a You Tube video and did some hydrangea cuttings last fall and kept them in a mini greenhouse all winter. Going to try to plant them and see what actually rooted. I hope I get 1 or 2 viable plants. If not, it is to the plant store I go!
Response: I'm glad you like it! I wish I was a better gardener so I could have a yard full of beautiful flowers. I hope.yoyr cuttings took root. Thanks for the heart!

Response: I'm so glad you like it! My irises are just starting to bloom. The purple ones are in full bloom, but I can just see some plum color peeking out from the green on the others. Thanks for the heart!

A misty morning

Tiny water droplets cling

Haiku For You swap

Hello, Anita! This is my very first haiku, hope you like it.

Haiku name: Dew Drops

Beads of water race

To the tip of leaves and stop

For a while, then drop.

I love your job title! Combines two of the professions I admire. Have a nice day.

-Hilori :)
