About Me

12/5/18 - I live in an apartment complex, and we don’ t have the best mailman. My last 3 swaps...Brenda’s Merry Christmas Swap # 8 and # 9, Disney Christmas cards were all placed in our complex out going mail. I have learned that our out going mail sat in the pickup bin for several days in our complex. So if you receive a card from one of the above mentioned swaps with a post mark after the send date this is why. All were placed in the out going mail on time. Please have grace when rating. Thank you!

ABOUT MY 3 RATING...The swap in question was for multiple swap partners, and Phillaines was the only one that did not arrive. This happened in May 2018. I was offline for the summer, and when I checked back in this fall I found messages from Phillaine about the missing swap. I resent the swap, she rated, and now all is good. I’m excited to get back into swaping since this is my favorite time of year to swap!

Hey all! My name is Christine and I live in Orlando Florida. I am married and my husband and I have two kids, a son and daughter. For the most part I am a stay at home mom but I do work part time as a photographer. We have two furbabies; one minipin/chihuahua and one pomeranian/chihuahua.

My favorite food is Mexican food, my favorite color is pink, and my favorite drink is coffee. I love all things Starbucks!

I love to shop at Michaels, Target Dollar Spot, and Bath and Body works, Amazon and Etsy.

My kitchen is decorated with an eclectic mix off coffee themed items and vintage, with a splash of red. The rest of my house is decorated in faux vintage slash beachy/coastal...I know its a bit much.

I am atheist and am not a religious person. While I respect everyones beliefs, please respect mine. Thank you

Favorite Crafts

UPDATE - I am working on my December Daily and would absolutely love your unwanted Christmas themed flamingos, llama, beachy and or summer like items with a Christmas theme. You will for sure receive a heart. It’s very much appreciated!

When I have down time (hahaha) I love to paper craft, or just play with paper in general. I am OBSESSED with Project Life right now. Project Life is where I spend most of my me time. I also enjoy working in junk journals and I have several going right now. I have one big journal that most everything goes into, a Halloween junk journal, and a Christmas junk journal. I also enjoy making pocket letters, handmade postcards, gift tags, altered composition notebooks, and ATC's




My favorite Holiday is Christmas and Halloween is a close second. I start decorating for Halloween in September and then on November first all the Halloween stuff goes away and the Christmas stuff comes out. Oh, and I love Christmas music and have been known to listen to it year round!

If you have and don’t want or need...I would really love your Christmas themed flamingos, llamas, and anything beachy or summer related with a Christmas theme. It’s very much appreciated and you will for sure receive a heart!

Favorite Books, TV, and Movies

I enjoy reading, and read a wide variety of books from fiction to non-fiction. I read everything from young adult to taboo; nothing is off limits when it comes to books.

My guilty pleasure is TV! I love Grey's Anatomy, Station 19, reruns of Roseanne and Boston Legal, Impractical Jokers, Alaskan Bush People, Outlander, Ozarks, Homecoming...the list really could go on forever. My all time favorite movie is Dirty Dancing.

Comment: Thank you for the absolutely gorgeous stationery. I've already sent out one of the adorable postalettes to my mother. (re: this rating: The swap contents are very nice. The 3 is due to several months of follow-up without response before receiving anything. Once she got in touch, Christine was kind and nice to work with).
Response: I am so glad the resend swap made it to you! I am happy to hear you enjoyed what I sent! Happy swapping!

Hello from Rodrigues Island Mauritius. How are you? I love watching television too. It is turned off only at bedtime. Being a small island with not much leisure activities, television has become our favorite.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Good Morning from Livingston, Texas! Where it is 46 degrees and I'm frozen. lol It is not normally this cold this time of year here. I think it is going to be a few months before I unthaw. (hahaha) I noticed that you a little issue here on swap bot but don't let that get you down. These little swaps will help with your rating so much! I hope that you are staying warm and that you have a wonderful day!

Newbie Friendly Profile Hello!

I think the A B C s of you is so cool! That is such a fun way to let people know who you are! 😊

Almond Roca, Halloween, Mexican Food, Planners, And Unusual here, too! 😊 I really enjoy Christmas as well. I'm not religious having left the church as an adult...trying all those years to fit in. In my younger days, I would have been labeled a "Jesus Freak". Now if labels are required, eclectic pagan is a near fit. Some find it weird an atheist or non-religious person would love Christmas, but I truly get it!

Have a wondrous weekend!! Julie

Those are my favorite two holidays too, though the other way around, I think. Christmas isn't what it used to be, back when the family was bigger. We have a new granddaughter now though, so it will be fun again.

Our two girls are all grown up and out for years now. We all get together for Christmas. There are just seven of us now, plus my brother and his wife come Christmas day evening. There was a much bigger crowd but, as an old friend's father once told me... "The older you get, the more dead people you know".

Our first real snow of the season is just winding down now. I'll go out shortly, clean up some snow and then go for a little snowshoe. There isn't really enough to need snowshoes, we got about 6" and it has packed to less than 4 already, but I'll put them on and make some tracks anyway.

Our older daughter is a bit sad. She woke up to three inches of snow and it promptly turned to rain. By noon, it was all gone. That's what she get for living on Cape Cod. It never stays on the ground there. After living there for seven years, one would think that she would have figured that out.

I'm guessing that you are reading this and thinking you are glad you live where you do. There are a lot of people around here that moan and groan about the snow. I keep telling them they can move to Florida but few of them ever do.

Best Wishes, Neal
