About Me

November 2023

I've returned to Swap-bot after a lengthy absence due to illness and life. I don't know if I can fix any of the 1's since it's been 7+ years but I will message those partners to see if I can make them up.

I take photos of all my swaps.

If you need to ask me any questions please message me I am happy to answer.

I am a 40+-year-old married stay-at-home mum to 2 kids. (1 has already left the nest)

I absolutely LOVE swapping, I love sending and receiving swaps from and to other countries.

I love movies, I watch all kinds, mostly at home now but also love to go to the cinema.

I collect used stamps and postcards from around the world that show me the world.

My hobbies are crafting, reading, taking photos, watching movies/TV series, cooking, gardening, writing letters, doing swaps (of course lol), shopping and decluttering (yes it has become a hobby cause it's never finished). I do lots of other things but more sporadically. I also volunteer at the school my kids go to.

I will always look at your profile to see if I can send something/s that you might like or can use/eat etc. I always try to send great swaps because that's what I want in return. I will never send crap/sh*t lol, I may find it hard if you don't have a very well-filled-out profile, but then I just try and send some good quality things that I would like to receive.

Favorite Television

  • Elementary
  • Survivor

  • I love it when I get something handmade where someone has read my profile and taken something I like say like Supernatural or Calvin and Hobbes (any of my likes) and turned it into something like a postcard, bookmark, calendar, cover the front of a blank book for me I love it.


  • DARK CHOCOLATE, can't say this enough as I have received so much in swaps lately even though this is here!!
  • Chocolate with alcohol or licorice flavoured
  • Stuffed toys/teddies, whilst I do think they're cute I really have too many already and have nowhere to put them so would prefer not to receive UNLESS they are coke/M&M's, Calvin & Hobbes ones
  • Licorice and licorice-flavoured things
  • Sewing/knitting, I don't dislike I'm just not into and cannot do them lol

Hi Mandii! This is for the Leave a Comment and Pic on your Partner's Profile Swap in 3's & 1's. :)

I am also a stay at home mom of 3. Two boys and one girl. Mine are younger, though. 2,3 and 8. :) I see you want to have the time to scrapbook, I am big into scrapbooking and smashbooking! Time is definitely a factor.. haha. The Awesome life of a Mother. <3 If you would ever be interested in private swaps for scrapbook supplies, let me know! My craft stash is HUGE!

So here is the pic I chose for you.. I hope you like it!! :D (These two hotties!!)

Take Care. ((HUGS))

Thank you for sending me a package for the green swap! I wish you could get rated for it. It would include a heart for all those extra AMAZING huge buttons you sent. I'm sorry the partner you were send to and I was to receive from got partially suspended. Thanks for being an "angel" on this one.

I got the lip balm in the mail today! It smells alot like oregano and the herbs used for pizza! I was just waiting for someone to be brave enough to order one of the odd flavors from my Etsy list! Thank you so much!

Thank you very much for the Doctor Who-themed address labels towards my November wishes at the Wishlist group! :D (David Tennant is my favorite Doctor too, so how perfect are these?!) I love them and kinda don't want to use them...because then they'll be gone, haha. ;) (I will, though! Spreading the Doctor Who love through the mail stream.)
