Wugly, I too, am impressed that you drive (or drove) a big rig.  I've often thought about doing that 'cause I love to see new places, but ... maybe when my kids leave the nest.  Where I live, rubber stamping is still pretty hot.  And scrapbooking.  (I'm not into it, but my sister-in-law is a big-wig exec for Creative Memories).  You're right about a lot of what's out there being too cutesy and not weird enough, though.  hahaha  I lived in Broomfield, CO for about six months when I was a newlywed.  Is Baby Doc's in Denver still open?

Hi, Everybody.  I've been lurking on craftster for awhile, but had to register when I saw this topic and saw the deadline for this "swap" is today!  I've always wanted a pen pal too. 

OMG, you all make me feel old.  hahaha  I'm creeping up an 40 in a few years, and in June I'll have my 19th anniversary.  (Yes, I got married when I was way too young, but it seemed like a good idea at the time.)   Wink  I have a soon to be teenage son and an eleven year old daughter.  I've lived in MN almost all of my pretty "sheltered" life.  I guess that makes me liberal in politics, but conservative about sharing my opinions.  I can swear when I'm in a temper, but I can curb it too.  When I proofread my writing I'm amazed at how often I write something like, "I do not swear too often" instead of "I don't swear too often."  I try to spell things correctly, use proper punctuation and proper grammar even when I'm ranting.  Unfortunately(?) I also write with a lot of smileys because my sense of humor can be quite sarcastic too. 

I have a degree in Communications (so I'd love to communicate with anybody), but I work as a tech support provider in my daughter's school.  That's full time.  I also work part time at a musical theatre and on Monday I'll start another part time job at Kinko's.  I'm looking forward to "leftovers" there too.  I like paper crafts and sewing, but I'm new to it all.  My "crafty" grandma died when I was little and my mom wasn't crafty at all.   I begged for a sewing machine for years and finally got one (because it was free) a couple of years ago.  I'm learning and trying to teach my daughter.  She's loved "projects" since she was three, and she taught herself to knit with a book I gave her for Christmas.  I've been her Girl Scout troop leader for the last several years.  We're getting out of that though.  (My co-leader drives me crazy -  for two years there's been a girl in our troop named Lindsey and my co-leader still calls her "Leslie.") 

I love to read, but don't have much time to do it what with work and being a mom and cooking and cleaning (I hate housework, but lately I've found myself cleaning my kitchen if I have time to get bored) and etc.  I love all kinds of music.  Nat King Cole, No Doubt, Rosemary Clooney, Red Hot Chili Peppers, James Taylor, some U2, even some Patsy Cline.  (I like some country, but more bluegrass and artists that could be "crossover", not redneck, knee-jerk patriotic crap.)  Lately I've been listening to Madeline Peyroux and Maroon 5 and Dean Martin and Paul Simon and Louis Armstrong.  Would you say that's eclectic or all over the map?   Smiley

I'd like to write to two or three people (maybe more?) and I'd be willing to send things internationally.  Write on!    Grin
