About Me

My name is Mindy. I'm 48. I've lived in New Hampshire all of my life. I've been with my boyfriend, Packy, for 15 years. I have 4 beautiful daughters that mean everything to me. My oldest is Kaila 31, Marissa 26, Shania 22 and Ciera 20. I love it when we can all get together which isn't as often as it used to be. Shania just graduated with a Bachelor's in Nutrition and is on to grad school and Ciera just finished her 2nd year of college for Criminal Justice and is busy playing basketball. I really enjoy doing lots of different crafts. I'm always looking for something new to create. However, my favs will always be paper crafts and crocheting. I Love to make paper embellishments and I'm always up for a private swap. I owned a child care center for 10 years. I sold it to a Charter School. Now I am a Service Coordinator/Supervisor. I set up elderly with services that will help keep them in their homes as long as possible and supervise over 20 Direct Support Providers I love my job. I also eat a whole food/plant based diet.


*I LOVE DIE CUTS!!!! I like to use them on ATC’s, envelopes, etc. Feel free to send me some!

*Swapping Happy Mail

*hummingbirds (all birds)

*Dunkin Donuts coffee. I should just have an IV put directly into my vein considering how much I drink!

*Christmas anything. I totally have OCD=Obsessive Christmas Disorder!

*Anything PINK, iridescent or sparkley. How can one not smile when they see something pink and sparkly?

*Flea market finds. I have a huge Christmas Village display and I got most of the pieces at flea markets.

*Plastic canvas. I bought a huge bin full of plastic canvas sheets and books at a flea market about 7 years ago and I've been hooked ever since. I like to do it when I watch tv cuz it keeps my hands busy. I especially like to make PC Christmas ornaments!

*Crochet. My Grandmother taught me when I was 8 years old. I especially like to make afghans, pillows and Christmas stockings.

*Colorful fabric. I like to make colorful block quilts and pillow cases. I'm still fairly new to sewing. I would love to learn how to make tote bags and purses but my attempts have been less than successful so far.

*DIY projects. I'm a crafty queen at heart.

*Interior decorating, especially at Christmas. I LOVE decorating for Christmas. That's why I start in November and keep it up til January. I decorate for all of the holidays.

*Pinterest. I can get lost on Pinterest for hours. It just sucks me in and before I know it, I've lost 2 hours of my life!

*Did I mention that I LOVE DIE CUTS!!!! Again, feel free to send me some.

Favorite Television

I like to binge watch series on NETFLIX and HULU

Favorite Books

*Amish books. I find it interesting how they live and their sense of community.

*Mythical books. Great when I want to escape the real world.

*Chicken soup for the soul books. I have 6 Christmas versions I like to reread.

Obviously, I read a variety of different books.

I'm the kind of person that can picture the story in my mind while I'm reading it as if I'm watching it on a movie screen. Sometimes I'm so involved in the book that when I take a break, it takes me a few minutes to adjust to reality, lol.

I have to take breaks from reading sometimes because it can suck up so much of my life!

I also enjoy listening to audio books in my car because sometimes I travel far for my job.

Favorite Movies

*A Christmas Story

*Jim Carrey version of The Grinch

*All the Hallmark Christmas movies

*Harry Potter movies, I'm such a dork

*Anything with Robert DeNiro



*smoking. I hate it when the scent gets into my clothes. Yuck!

*rude people. I don't understand why some people have to use a pissed off tone when they speak to someone. You get a lot more when you’re kind towards others.

*onions. I wish I liked them because so many people use them when they cook. I gag when I eat them.

*Mushrooms. I gag when I eat these too. My Mom loves them.

*extremely late raters. I can't stand it when 2 weeks go by after I send something and they still haven't rated me. It leaves me wondering if they ever got it or if it got lost.

*no more stickers! Especially the tiny ones. Unless they are Christmas stickers.

*I don't care for religious Christmas cards

Swap Ethics

I promise to send all swaps on time to the best of my ability. If an emergency arises, I will respectfully notify any and all partners if my swap will be delayed in any way. Most of my swaps are mailed the same day I receive my partners, as I start working on them as soon as I sign up. If you do not receive a swap on time from me, please notify me so that I can make it up to you. If you didn't get my swap, it was probably something out of my control so please give me the chance to rectify it before you give me a low rating and ruin my chances for future swaps.I will treat everyone with the same respect I would like to be treated with. Swap-bot is a lot of fun to be a part of and I will do my best to make it remain a positive experience for myself and others.


I rate the same day I receive a swap so if I haven't rated you, I haven't received your swap yet. I understand life can get in the way so if you’re running a little late and you message me to give me a heads up, I will not give you a poor rating. I just don't want to have to chase people to see what happened to their swap. I do not compare members' swaps. I realize some people have more money and/or more time than others. As long as you met the requirement, I will give you a 5. If I felt like you really put some extra effort into your swap, I will give a heart. I will also try to give a comment so you will know how I liked it. I love when members post comments on my swaps-it lets me know what I did good and what I can improve on. So far this has been lots of fun. It's nice to go to the mailbox and have something besides a bill or junk mail. I also like the idea that I might of put a smile on someone's face when they receive my swap!

I teared up near the end of that father/daughter story. That something wonderful could happen after the tragedy was remarkable. I was also struck by the fact the family hired not one but two different lawyers to check him out! Glad you enjoyed the article.
