APRIL 4, 2014: LIFE-UPDATE...Thanks so much everyone for your patience in waiting for message responses, waiting for swaps, waiting for me to rate you and waiting for me to post new swaps. Most of all thank you everyone for your prayers for my father-in-law as he battles with prostate cancer. At this point, we are being told to make him comfortable. And that we are doing with all our might. It has taken a toll on our family but we're still hanging in there. I have answered some messages, and have rated most of your swaps to me. I will return as soon as I can. Again, thanks for your patience...gotta go. Be blessed. Keep praying for us! Hugs
ABOUT ME: I am a married chic and recent stay-at-home Mom of 5 beautiful kiddos 19, 12, 12, 10 and 8. We live near the beach and tend to play there as much as possible! I'm a "shiny happy people holding hands" kind of person! I'm one of those people that you meet in the street and it seems like you've known me all my life! And YEP I do see life through ROSE colored glasses! :)
I am a Christian and much happier because of it! This is also the MOST IMPORTANT reason why I chose the swap name RECYCLEDSOUL, because as the old church hymn lyrics go...I once was lost but now I'm found! I was blind but now I see! So would WELCOME the receipt of anything Christian related. I collect old Bibles, bookmarks, and old vintage Bible commentaries.
My favorite colors are pink, green, aquamarine blue, yellow, orange, gold and silver. I love everything around me to be cheerful and bright! And these colors are best complimented with something burlap, black and white for that vintage touch!
I love to write ANYTHING! Letters, cards, notecards, postcards, calligraphy, signs, poems...you name it. So any interesting looking pen, fountain pen, calligraphy pen, paint pen, Sharpie Markers, Sharpie Fabric Markers, mechanical pencil, drawing pencil, coloring pencil I would absolutely love!
My favorite birds are PEACOCKS! My house is decorated with them and their feathers! I also LOVE OWLS, ravens and crows. I love the dove also, as it is a symbol of the Holy Spirit.
My favorite animals are pigs, rabbits, giraffes, pit-bulls, boxers and bulldogs.
Personalities that intrigue me: Mary-Mother of Jesus, Mother Theresa, USA Presidential First Ladies, Margaret Thatcher, Princess Diana, Julia Childs, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Cameron Diaz, Gabrielle Union, Jesus Christ, USA Presidents, Mahatma Ghandi, Johnny Depp, Tim Burton, Kermit The Frog and Ms. Piggy the Muppets
