I take swaps seriously and I put a lot of time and thought into the things I make for others. Please send me a message if you do not receive a swap.
Oye..where to start?
Well, let's start with the family. I've been married for 11 and have three children, 2 boys and 1 girl. I have two cats, 2 chickens, a dog, and sadly, the fish didn't survive long. (If you ask me, the algae eater was a poor representative of his species...but we won't discuss that any further).
I was accepted into the nursing program recently and will begin this long awaited journey in August 2013. This is a dream of mine and I'm beyond words of how excited I am!
I'm infatuated with Alice in Wonderland, Marvin the Martian, Corvettes (1976 Stingray, to be specific), calico cats, turtles, monkeys...ah, the list could go on. I am also owned by 6 eastern box turtles and 2 red foot tortoises. I work on rehabilitating the boxies that people choose to selfishly remove from the wild and prepare them for safe release. I have released 2 back so far.
I think I have a great sense of humor. I think there is very little that offends me, other than outright stupidity or a person's unwillingness to learn. I'm an open book. Ask and you might receive..LOL Oh, I also find it annoying when people pick out so many things they will not accept of do not like in their profiles. If someone is giving you a gift...like it for what it is...not what you expected! With that being said, I will happily accept anything that someone put thought into.
I enjoy decorating cakes. Believe it not, it's a skill that I picked up from watching my mama decorate when I was a kid.
Since I've been doing ATC's for a few months, I figured I'd update my profile a little. I'm not much of a drawer or painter. My lines just don't ever come out how they are in my head. Recently I have been practicing drawing. I'm not good at drawing from memory, but I can look at something and interpret it okay. My 'art' is more of utilizing creative applications. love utilizing stickers and proving that you can use a sticker and be artistic. I kind of take offense when people say "slap a sticker on". I absolutely love making handmade cards too. I think this is one of my favorite things to do! I'm most definitely a paper crafter and I love using embellishments. I really put time and effort into my swaps and I hope it shows.
I'm looking forward to these swaps and joined this site because my mom was on here. I know how much joy she gets from these swaps and I wanted to participate in something she loves.
I really enjoy reading. I think the best knowledge is usually in obscure places in which a person must go looking for it. Let's face it, most things worthwhile take you finding them, not someone giving you that knowledge.
I mostly enjoy literature from the mid to late 1800's. I find that these authors had a really deep sense of the world and what it was about.
Since I have my kindle on my phone now, I have a variety of books I'm reading. I've started "On Death and Dying" I believe this is a must-read book for anyone, particularly those in the medical field. I loved the "Game of Thrones" series and finished them up quite quickly.
I also enjoy reading true-crime and non-fiction science (specifically genetics/human heritage).
Basically, I like anything that makes you think and reflect. :)
I have an eclectic taste in music. If I had to pick one genre, it would have to be rock (Breaking Benjamin, Chevelle, Fly Leaf, 3 Days Grace, etc). I will listen to anything sounds good or mirrors my current emotion. I love to dance, so club and upbeat music is always a favorite.
Assorted Ribbons Any sort of embellishments Markers/fine tipped gel pens (Gelly Roll pens) Alice in Wonderland (esp. from the new movie!) Clear stamps (just got my first one) Assorted paper Textured/Glittered paper Foreign language paper/print (books is fine) Anything cool from other countries
Or....anything or nothing extra at all. LOL
