About Me

Hi all. I'm 30 years old and still not ready to become a real adult. I've given up hope. I've lost my battle with crafting, and am now addicted. I"m always interested in new things. I like writing, drawing, playing with clay, and super simple sewing projects. I really enjoy looking for things that'll make someone smile. I like sending mail and I love opening up the ole mailbox to find something just for me.

I'll try to always rate promptly and would appreciate if my partners would rate me as well. Please get ahold of me if you haven't received a swap that I owe you. I promise, I don't flake.

Things at work are alternately stressful and the most boring thing ever. It's like whiplash. I try not to sign up for too much at once. I'd love to do a personal swap with someone interested in some of the same things especially if we've swapped before.

Favorite Themes

I find that themes are useful for picking out pictures, quotes, and other little knick-knacks. I like when others have them in their profiles so here's some of mine:

  • Solitude.
  • Supernatural.
  • Werewolves.
  • Apocalypse.
  • Wide open spaces.
  • Old west.
  • Found families.
  • Humanism
  • Creative process.
  • Law Enforcement (dispatching)

Movies/TV/Video Games

I like most horror movies especially cult, aliens, and demons over the slasher. I hate Michael Bay and typically his movies. I think that the Twilight series is one of the best spoofy comedies I've seen in a long time.

Movies: Gone With the Wind, Tombstone, Rio Bravo, The Fourth Kind, The Mist, Dr. Strangelove, Captain America, Trick 'r Treat, The Hobbit, Nicolas Cage!

My favorite TV includes: Teen Wolf (Derek, Stiles, and Derek/Stiles), Sleepy Hollow, Once Upon A Time (Snow), Saving Grace (All of it!), Supernatural (Dean, mythology, hunter lore), Buffy/Angel (Buffy, Faith, Dawn, Anya, slayer lore), Firefly (Mal, Jayne, Mal/Simon), Due South (Fraser, RayK, all of it!), Doctor Who (Nine is my doctor, but Ten is also awesome. I love Amy and Rory, and Donna. The Daleks and Master are my favorite bad guys. I love the TARDIS.)

I love everything Mass Effect and Dragon Age. All the characters and the mythology behind the stories. I'll also admit a guilty pleasure for the Kingdom Hearts series.

Favorite Books

I like paranormal romance, fantasy, soft sci-fi, m/m romance, and many of the classics. I like books with a strong but likable lead character, sometimes I like kick ass female protags but only if the authors manage to make them three-dimensional. I like loners finding a new home, cranky characters, and odd-duck friendships.

I'm a comic book geek. I loved Peter David's run of Young Justice. I loved Robin/Superboy. Tim is my favorite Robin (and Red Robin). I loved Kon when he was stuck in limbo and couldn't age because it was such a sad set of circumstances. I also like Batgirl, Supergirl, Wondergirl, and Hawkgirl, Rogue, Jubilee, - Batman, Captain America, Iron Man, Deadpool, Gambit.

I also like nonfiction, particularly books that will teach me about places, people, and activity. I'm a sucker for books about the supernatural - ghosts, aliens, monster, abilities, you name it.

I'd also appreciate books about writing, especially about fantasy, horror, or YA. Or anything that will poke me into spending more time writing.

This and That

Likes:

  • stars
  • trees (Christmas trees)
  • the darker or creepier side of life,
  • solid colors (I'm not much of a fan for busy patterns except for socks),
  • fun socks (size 10 or L b/c I have big feet and I also like short or knee high)
  • shiny things (silver more than gold),
  • elephants (figurines mostly, but I like surprises),
  • PENGUINS!!!! (anything!!!!),
  • reindeer
  • dark chocolate,
  • cowboys (hats, poetry, boots, rope. . .)
  • outdoor activities -> camping-hiking-snow skiing,
  • college football,
  • reading (books, bookmarks, tea to drink while reading, lights, quotes/pictures of books/people reading. . .)
  • writing (pens, pencils, stationary, notecards, journals, books/quotes/pictures about writing. . .)
  • playing video games (anything geeky),
  • black tea (bags or loose. I'm not a fan of chai.),
  • culture, religion/mythology, history,
  • the color orange (esp orange/black/gray and white),
  • usa southwestern style everything,
  • bracelets,
  • necklaces,
  • pierced earrings,
  • size Large t-shirts (unisex, ladies sizes are too tight),
  • Oklahoma (the state),
  • Oklahoma State University

Dislikes:

  • christian religious items (Though I am interested in other religions spiritual themes.)
  • smelly things (I don't really do candles, perfume, lotion or whatever),
  • the color red,
  • ceremonies,
  • typically girly things,
  • anime things,
  • Twilight,
  • summer. . .
  • too cute craft supplies -> I'm open to more quirky things.

Current Events

I have just started experimenting with loose tea. Any advice or accessories would be appreciated. I'd love to collect hand painted mugs with my interests, and mug rugs. I've got some pinned on my "I can't DIY" board on pinterest.

I am so obsessed with The Hobbit movies right now. There is just something about Bilbo/Martin Freeman's face that is infinitely entertaining. I love the dwarves too, and all their quirks and back stories. I know that Thorin/Bilbo will make me bawl if not this December then next December.

I would love to do a fandom related private swap with someone. Just message me and we can work out the details.

I would love to make a package for Supernatural, Stargate S9-10 or SGA, Teen Wolf, Mass Effect, Dragon Age, The Hobbit, Sleepy Hollow, Superheroes.

I would love to get a package for Teen Wolf, Sleepy Hollow, Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Superheroes, Chronicles of Narnia, The Hobbit.

Comment: I am very very very VERY sad to rate a 1 at this time. We have been in communications regarding this swap, and you have attempted to resend, but unfortunately I have not yet received this swap, despite the efforts. I have noticed you have taken a hiatus of sorts and have not been on Swap Bot since December of 2013, so I have chosen to rate in the mean time, so I may file this swap away for the time being. Of course I will be more than happy to re-rate if/when I receive your swap! It's certainly never too late as far as I'm concerned ^_^ I do hope all is well, and please take care!

Comment: Thank you thank you thank you! It's not a typical pairing, so I was THRILLED you came up with TWO different things to send. I haven't decided what to do with these lovely stickers yet. But I'm definitely going to have these little guys sitting on my laptop when I write from now on. Thank you for the wonderful inspiration!!!

Comment: I am in awe. Thank you SO much for all the amazing goodies! The pin will go on my fandom bag at once (which is, I think, smaller than this patch! I'll have to find a good use for it.) The ATC is the first I have from this fandom. YAY! And I have a hard time finding SG books, so this is great. Poor Save Our Stargate movement. But this photo- you blew me away. Thank you SOOOOOO much for a photo signed by my favorite Stargate actor! I am honored you parted with it for me, though I guess having memories of meeting him are so much better *G* And, you're right, everyone loves Teal'c :-) Oh, and the decorated envelope really did make me laugh out loud. We'll call that a bag ;-) Thanks so much for the amazing goodies. You're so sweet!

Not only do I receive the awesome altered CD I should have known I was going to be getting an awesome package when the first thing I see is the TARDIS blue tissue paper! And then the door tag! Goodness gracious, the bookmarks: Moto Bene, the teas and banana stickers? OMGalligrey too cool! and to top it off: A TL music CD. I'd give 10 hearts if that were possible!

My absolute favourite moment of the series. And not just because Sean Maher is half naked, I swear! ;)

Favorite movie comment swap... my favorite movie has to be the Labyrinth, just for the scene where David Bowie is signing Magic Dance, one of my all time favorite scenes, but overall why do I love this movie? Yyoung babysitter loses baby has to go get him back from the pedophile who kidnapped him... perfect kids movie
