About Me

Hey ladies. I got busy with work (that's life) and my swaps have been shipped a little late. They will be there soon! Don't worry. Cheers!

I'm a 26 year old new bride. No kids at the moment, except for the furry kind.

I love to create items with paper, ribbon, and other items I have around the house.

Please check out my Etsy shop, or my blog for more fun things!


Favorite Books

I love beautiful books with beautiful photos! I love to read. I love to read. Favorite genres are science fiction (love vampire/magical stories), how to craft books ...well, really, almost anything! And I love Jane Austen.

Favorite Movies

My absolute favorite movie is the newest Pride and Prejudice (Kiera Knightly)! I love all the Harry Potters, most Pixar/Dreamworks movies (the Incredibles), Joy Luck Club, Jane Austen, Knocked Up, The Dark Knight, Sex in the City, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 1 and 2 oh man I can go on... But I wont!

Basically I love comedies, computer animated, Pride and Prejudice era movies, and so on...

Favorite Music

I love music...most every kind. Favorite bands/artists are: Dave Mathews Band, Adele, Amy Winehouse, MGMT, Band of Horses, Beatles, many more. Love it.

Oh, but I don't really like country music. Only the Dixie Chicks. That's about all!

Favorite Television

I have many favorite television shows. Lost, Top Chef, Project Runway, Grey's Anatomy, Arrested Development, Sex in the City, Survivor, Iron Chef, and a few more.

I love paper crafts. Jewelry making, painting, and Photography.

Random Dislikes

I don't have many dislikes, but here are a few just to give an idea... - Goth style - Fruity teas - Jelly Beans - White Chocolate - Black/Red Licorice - Amaretto Flavor - Hot Pink (I just don't like a TON of hot pink, its fine in small doses) - Preservatives in food - Strong Perfumy smells (gives me bad headaches) - Jams and Jellies - Raisins - Puffy Paint - Clowns - Wal-Mart

Please don't send me random scraps from your junk box to meet a swap requirement. If you don't want it, I probably don't want it. If there is no thought into it, I feel like its basically flaking on a swap.
