About Me

Hello!

IMPORTANT NOTE to SWAP PARTNERS: I sometimes send from the UPS Store, so the postmark may be one day behind my "Sent Swap" notification. :)

I'm a happily married Christian geek (Dr Who/Star Trek/Game of Thrones) currently living in the Florida Panhandle.

Things I like: peacocks, peacock feathers, parrots, songbirds, feathers, sea turtles, beachy/tropical, Hawaiiana (not pinups or tiki), reading/books, cooking, coffee, chocolate, superheroes, Carolina parakeets (extinct), Japan.

Right out: fragrances, anything overtly anti-Christian (including occult/astrology), porn/adult material, gore, paisley, socio-political issues, overly cutesy stuff, paisley, Southwestern patterns/motifs, Engelbreit, Kliban, Geddes, paisley, anything for kids (dun' have any). Foods to avoid: cilantro, anise/fennel flavors, rose hips or mint in tea. And paisley (not parsley), heh. If it's a tea swap, please don't send anything with rose hips or mint (ANY kind of mint), even as a minor component, thanks.

Whew, sorry to bother you with such a long list. Now that it's out of the way, on to the good stuff!

Fave color is peacock blue (lighter than navy, darker than sapphire, with a hint of green in it).; favorite combo is turquoise/teal with purple and metallic. I don't like mint green, though.

Currently collecting:

Peacock note cards. Hawaiian Christmas, birthday, and mahalo (thank-you) cards. That is, cards with at least some text in Hawaiian. I always, ALWAYS need these for a hula class I take! Very willing to swap extras from a pack, since there are only ~6 people in the class, cards generally come 8 to a pack, and I don't want to use the same card twice. To be honest, usually I either mail-order some from Hawaii or improvise with beach/tropical cards, which are easily found here in Florida. Please no pin-ups or kitsch.

Things I'm collecting for other people:

Harley-Davidson poker chips for Hubby

NFL Saints items for Hubby

Monarch butterfly and songbird themes for papercrafting friend. She also does papercrafting, so if you send supples, I'll make sure they get to her.

Chocolate, much as I love it, won't survive shipping most of the time here, just like anything else heat-sensitive.

I have frizzy, uncontrollable yet slick hair--it's been described as "teflon hair." No, that's not a euphemism for dirty or greasy. If you make headbands or scrunchies you think might work for me and not give me a headache, please go ahead and send 'em! I need something that grips the hair, like velvet. Smooth ones, or smooth plastic, slip right out. Yes, it's weird.

Tl;dr:

Good: beach/tropical, Hawaiian, peacocks or their plumes, notecards and gift-wrapping items, "helpful for newbie" items, cool colors,grippy headbands.

Bad: fragrance, overly cutesy/saccharine, juvenile, cilantro, kitsch, Southwestern, paisley, poor condition.

Comment: I can't give you enough hearts for the fermentation weights! Thank you for going above and beyond the requirements for this swap. Swaps like this are the reason why I love this site, you sent me something completely unexpected and made my day. Thank you so much for your generosity!
Response: So glad you have a use for them! They'd been sitting in my kitchen drawer for at least two years, since Hubby was diagnosed with CHF.

Response: So glad you like 'em! I had this swap put together and ready to send out, when lo and behold, I ran across the file folders (and sticky notes) at Tuesday Morning and HAD to buy them! Then pull out the BIG photomailers!

Comment: Wow is all I can say...Seriously FLOORED by the amazing selection of items you sent! Did you create the die cuts and envelope? They are drop dead gorgeous...even my hubby who rarely comments on my mail, noticed and said that was a special package! Thank you so, so, so much!
Response: So glad you liked everything! No, I'm not talented enough to have made any of it; I ordered the envelopes and diecuts from AliExpress. If you order from them, be aware your order can take a loooing time to arrive.
