About Me

what I pledged

I am 29 yrs old.

MY PERSONALITY: I am a fun person to be around. I'm witty, outgoing & can always be caught w/ a smile on my face. I'm unique and prefer to do what I want to do, although everyone says I am a people person. I like to make new friends, write letters, take pictures, and put together gifts packages (nothing much just small cute items I like to share every now and then) as well as receive them. So when I found this website it was like a dream come true! I would really like to make lots of new friends that I can swap with for years to come! I am hoping to gain more than just some mail, but lifetime companions (meaning Friends Forever)!

MY LOVES & FAVORITES: I love to travel, go to theme parks, water parks, national parks, or just quite parks where you can have picnics, I love them all! I LOVE to cook & bake.I have a very large movie, book, and music collection. No particular themes or genres if it catches my attention I like it. I DO TEND TO FAVOR MUSIC BY BEYONCE!! I believe in giving every thing as well as everyone a fair chance. I'm constantly surfing the net in my spare time. I have multiple messengers if you have those, maybe we can add each other and chat sometime. If your going to add me please send me a message so I will know who you are.

****~I am also interested in hearing about family traditions different families have. I would like to start a few of my own.~****

MY DISLIKES: I'm not into Anime or Manga themed items. I don't care for Kawaii items (will accept Kawaii stationary items only)!

Favorite Television

I guess you can say I'm into reality shows I watch any and all my favorite is True Life. I recently fell inlove with the series True Blood! I also enjoy watching CSI any will do, Jon & Kate plus 8 (still a fav), The Hills, The City, Cold Case, Law & Order, Crimnal Minds, Biggest Loser, Wife Swap, Trading Spouses, Home Made Simple, Hells Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares, House of Payne, and anything on LifeTime Movie Network.

~Favorite Show of All Time: DARIA~

Favorite Movies

The Girl W/ the Dragon Tatto, The Girl That Played W/ Fire, The Girl That Kicked The Hornet's Nest, Eve's Bayou, The Good Girl, Just Married, Dude Where's My Car, Taken, Orphan, Obsessed, Anything & Everything with Adam Sandler, and Anything by Tyler Perry.

Favorite Crafts

I love to try arts and crafts. I love scrapbooking, making mini scrapbooks, putting together photo albums.My son loves scissors, writing utensils, glue & now paint thanks to an episode of Curious George..lol. HE REALLY LOVES PAINT!!!!

~Any suggestions for easy art projects you have for us are welcome!~

I read swap info & saw pics of whimsy jars and matchboxes now I'm very curious about both. Would someone be willing to send me an email or direct me to a website where I can get directions about how to make these?

My Collections

I collect Books (especially cookbooks), Journals (blank), Memo Pads, Stationary, Stickers, Colorful pens, Coupon Organizers, Office/Craft Supplies, Bookmarkers, Bath and body material, Recipes, Movies, LisaFrank and Sanrio items. I recently began to collect scrapbook material because I have started working on my books again and there's so much out there.

PRIVATE SWAPS: I would love to do private swaps with members that have similar interests. Simply send me a message and tell me what you have in mind.


Swap Tags, Stationary, Decorated Printer Paper, Stickers, Deco Tape, Bookmarkers, Address Labels, Large & Small Address Books, Envelopes, Unused Stamps (.44 or .98), Bath & Body lotions, soaps, bodywash, etc. (samples are fine), Any Craft and Office Supply, Baseball Card Holders 9 & 8 slot sheets, Photo Refills 6, 4, & 3 slots sheets, Plastic Pocket Dividers, Tabbed Dividers, Rubber Stamps, Colorful Pens, Corlorful Sharpies, Cute Blank Notepads or Notebooks, Blank Journals, Cute Post-its, Scrapbooking Supplies, Felt (any color), Ribbons, Bandanas, Fabric (even leftovers!), Pincushions, Aprons (for me & my son), Cute Socks, Cookie Cutters (plastic only), A Sewing bag or container to hold supplies, Reusable Grocery Bags, Coin Purses, Hello Kitty items, Recipes (Food section below contains recipes I'm ISO), Blank Recipe Cards, Coupons (Coupon wishlist below), Coloring Books (for my son)


I started using coupons heavily in 2010. I must admit I love it :) I have even taken the steps to create a coupon binder. At this time I only have a small one I made out of a double sided zipped day planner to fit inside my purse to take along w/ me on shopping trips. Once I gather enough coupons I plan to create a larger 3 ring binder. I plan to participate in & host LOTS of coupon swaps.

PM ME IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO DO PRIVATE COUPON SWAPS! (1 time or regular swaps welcome)

It's ok if you send coupons for items not on my list. I do coupon trains and can pass them along to someone else. I also do recipe trains if you are interested. Feel free to send me a message to join one of my trains.


1 Zipper Pencil bag w/ rings 2 fit inside a 3 - ring binder 1 pk of Collector Card Holders (9 & 6 slots need 1 pk of each) 1 pk of Clear Photo Refill Sleeves (3 & 4 slots need 1pk of each) 3 pocket dividers or 3 plastic folders w/ pockets (2 fit 3-ring binder) 1 good pair of small cutting scissors 20 Tabbed Dividers

Food Swap Info.

DISLIKES: I am not too choosy when it comes to food. I just don't care for liquorice or coconut.


ISO: I would like to try some easy recipes for 1 or 2. Freezer friendly recipes (specially the ones where you cook half freeze the rest), I would also enjoy baking recipes you may have.


There are a lot of swaps in my groups as well as public swaps I would like to participate in, but I have no idea how to make an ATC!!!!! If you make ATC's and you are my partner for another swap will you please send me one so I can see what it looks like? I catch on to crafts easily and love to try new things. I just feel like it would be easier to make one if I saw one first. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance :)


Comment: Never received your end of the swap, nor a response to my PM's, though you've logged on as recently as July 8th...I hope you're ok. Edit: Joni offered to resend, which is admirable, so I'm rerating this at a 3. At this point I do not need her to fulfill her end of the swap, though I appreciate her offering to.
Response: Message sent 08/23/2016 offering to send swap.

Comment: Never received anything. Waited after I was told that there would be a delay. Here we are almost a year later. Would have been happier with an honest response...
Response: 08/23/16: Message sent asking to make up swap. 08/24/16 I received a response stating that a resend is not wanted. I DID TRY TO CORRECT THIS.

Read Profile & Leave Nice Msg :o) I hope u feel better with your feet. I also have a foot problem due to a work injury. I like your profile. true blood is awesome. I also love what u said about pen pals being humans not something to collect :D have a great week!

buttonville on Aug 8, 2010:

Joni,I enjoyed reading about you in your profile-I also am a big True Blood fan, This season has taken a dramatically different turn, hasn't it? In turns of family tradition ideas, my sister and I take turns transforming a christmas ornament. We originally took a cheapy plastic ball that our mother no longer put on the tree, but as most ornaments, it was still in the ornament box. My artsy sis transformed it and at christmas, wrapped it up and gave it to me. Then the next year I would use the same ornament and completely transform it. Our family enjoyed seeing what we had done with it...some years it was beautiful and some years silly.

It was good getting to know you-enjoy the back to school supply sales that make this time of year a treasure trove for us office supply junkies! Toni aka Buttonville

ethereality88 on Aug 8, 2010:

Hey! I'm your partner on the Read My Profile & Comment swap. I found a link that you might like about ATCs. I have yet to actually see one either, and I haven't had the guts to try to make one, but this site had a lot of really good pictures and info about different techniques. http://www.cedarseed.com/air/atc.html Maybe we can both start swapping them pretty soon! ~ Lealie
