I am:

  • a random person who is learning to love life and to slow down to enjoy the small things...
  • a 90 year old woman trapped in a 28 year old body
  • married to a wonderful chemist-turned-photographer (who shoots light bulbs for a living...)
  • a mother of two wonderful boys (10 and 1)
  • am an avid traveler, which works out since I am a CRA
  • a baker and am constantly on the look out for sprinkles, cute baking cups, gourmet chocolate (Yummm!!!), anything of the sort :)!...
  • a tour junkie: culinary tours, architecture tours, history tours, I love them all!
  • a scrapbooker, smashbooker, and crocheter
  • totally obsessed with customizing my F150 truck, which is my third baby...
  • a fan of graffiti
  • currently trying to learn German, since I work for a German and Swiss based company and will be travelling to Germany in September

I love:

  • my nose ring
  • white chocolate
  • elephants
  • hot cocoa
  • polka dots
  • gold deblooms
  • British Hip hop groups (Big Brovaz :)!!!!)
  • Eminem
  • Country music
  • pickup trucks

I don't:

  • believe in horoscopes, yet my sign of Taurus totally describes me...
  • want to leave the world having made more people upset that they met me than happy...
  • believe people smile enough. My goal everyday is to make someone smile, whether it's because I'm dancing in my car at a stoplight or a simple compliment

I wish:

unicorns were real.

Favorite Books

I am a super fast reader and read 30 minutes before bed every night, so I go through a book (on my nook) just about every 2-3 days... I love murder mystery books, detective books, and post apocalyptic-esque books.

I would like:

I realized that everyone had an I would like/ I collect section, so I thought I would add one to my profile....If you are looking for ideas:

My 16 month old, Oliver, is into coloring and cars and I collect owls/alligator stuff for his room. My 10 year old, Eric, is into Minecraft, video games, space and logic puzzles. My almost 30 year old husband, Jon, is into photography and snacking:). I just like surprises:)!

Comment: I absolutely love the dotee you sent me. It is my favorite yet. You used a lot of originality and time in it and It mesmerizes me. The originality in the way you sent it and and awesome items you enclosed are equally appreciated. If I could, I would give you a thousand hearts. Sorry about the 3 you received below my rating. You rock and I would gladly swap with you anytime!!!
Lexidh rated for QUICK pretty tape swap #3 on Jul 27, 2014
Comment: I'm sorry to rate you with a 3, the swap was very good, but it was sent late. The custom form, signed by you was dated two days after the send by date, and the postage paid sticker is dated a whole week after the send by date! If you had contacted me about this and give me a reason for sending late it might not have been a problem, but when I don't know it and have to discover it myself I'm not a happy camper.
Response: That's okay... I understand. I was out of town on business and didn't realize that my husband mailed the package late!... I hope you enjoyed the contents anyways...
Comment: Thank you so much for such an awesome swap! So thoughtful and fun!
Response: Thanks! I am glad you liked it!
Comment: Thank you for the swap. I love how you made the ribbon part of the envie. I also love the Habogi's Horses picture. It's such a cool style. Also another huge thank you for the beads and stamps.

Hi! Send you my package for the Blind Surprise swap on May 27th. In my experience, US customs can take a long time processing packages/mail in envelopes. Please wait a few more weeks before rating. If you still haven't received it by then, I can resend. Because the gifts and shipping cost me quite a lot of money I'd really appreciate if you could wait a few more weeks. :)

Hello! Thank you for signing up to my swap: Odd Animal Crossbreeds - ATC - USA! Not many people signed up but that's my fault. I goofed on the swap categories. Still the swap will go on! I'll be creating another swap, the same as this one, with the corrections if you're interested in joining this kind of swap again in the future. Happy Swapping! - Claudine
