About Me


I am the mother of two beautiful children, thirteen and eleven years old. I have a cat named Oreo (she was my first baby), she's fifteen years old. I am a freelance transcriptionist and work from home. I live in a small town in Central Florida (close to Orlando). Let's see...I just recently, on New Years Eve, married a wonderful man, who I am so happy to share the rest of my life with. I love music, reading, and playing games with my kids and family.

Favorite swaps to join are photo swaps and music swaps. I also enjoy journal swaps.

Favorite Music


I love all kinds of music. From rock, 80's, these days mostly country. I even like classical at times...I love piano and violin music.

Favorite Books


I like a good mystery, murder mystery. I am currently reading the Twilight Series and so far great books. I also like a good romance, i.e. Nicholas Sparks.

Favorite Movies


My all time favorite movie is The Sound of Music. I also like Dirty Dancing and Grease. Musicals are a favorite of mine. I also get into good mystery, psycho thrillers, who done it movies.

Favorite Television


As far as television I watch Criminal Minds, NCIS, Leverage, Hells Kitchen, The Office, Greys Anatomy, Private Practice, Family Guy. WOW...writing that out I see just how much television I watch! lol
I enjoy PARANORMAL shows...ex. Ghost Hunters, A Haunting, Paranormal State!!! Love ghostly stories and investigating.



I like butterflies, any kind. I really like artsy butterflies (in crafts and images etc.), love to see a butterfly flutter by in nature.
I like the color blue (pretty much all shades), and some greens.
I like Jeeps!!!! Riding topless (as in no top on the jeep...get your mind out of the gutter! lol) in a jeep is loads of fun.
Favorite season is Spring...need I say more.
I like to journal, I like to write quotes, thoughts, recipes...anything in a journal. Right now I have one I just write quotes in. Anytime I see a quote, I write it down.
I enjoy learning about the paranormal (ghost stories, visiting haunted places, watching paranormal television and movies, reading paranormal books.

New hobby is Geocaching. You don't know what it is, look it up and learn more about it. The kids love it as well. It's just like a big treasure hunt! Gotta love it.

Hobby: Photography

I have always like taking photos and looking at photos, however, lately I am really getting into photography. Reading and trying to learn as much as I can about it, joining photography swaps and sharing photos is my new passion.

I have started a photo group here on swap-bot....you should check it out and join! "Photo Fanatics" is the name of the group.

Also, check out my flickr photos. They are a work in progress but check it out and let me know what you think.

FairyCrafter rated for Senders Choice Black & White on Jan 20, 2010
Comment: What a lovely black and white photo. It is amazing to me that so much more detail is noticable in a blank and white. Hmm, seems like this would be cool framed and hanging in a livingroom some where. Love the zentangle!! Suppose one could frame one of these and hang it in the dining area of the kitchen?
