I joined Swap-bot in Aug. 2020. Years ago I scrapbooked but now all my supplies are just boxed away. One thing led to another and that led me here! What better way to use my supplies then in 🐌 snail mail?
I’m in my 40’s, married, have two children, three fur babies 🐶 🐶 🐱, two grand fur babies 😂🤷🏻♀️, and have lived in the same state all my life. I love the Lord with all my heart. I teach kindergarten and first grade at a Christian Academy, love to shop at thrift stores, enjoy cooking and learning new recipes, like to read when I find the time, am addicted to YouTube videos of mom vloggers, dumpster divers, crafters, and Dollar Tree haulers 😂😂. I love to Bible Journal & doodle. I’m a big kid at heart which is why I belong in Kindergarten! 😂 I love crafting and toys. Puzzles and games. Drawing and coloring. I’m also a breast cancer survivor 💕
September- November 2020 has been especially difficult for me.. I spent almost a month of that time thinking that cancer had returned. I had to go through a few procedures, a biopsy and a surgery then finally they confirmed that, amazingly, I did not have cancer! My doctors and I decided that a complete hysterectomy would help me considerably. So, on 11-12-20 that’s what I had done. I’m currently (11-21-20) in the healing stages.
SOCK SWAPPERS I wear size 9-11 socks. No show, or right under the ankle socks are my favorite but I will also wear knee high socks in the winter.
ATCs (just learning how to do these)
My favorite colors are bright pinks, blues, yellows and purples. But really I love color, with only a few exceptions.
I love unicorns and fairies, sloths and koalas, cows and pigs, flamingos and llamas, turtles too! lol
I love different themes from bright and bold colors to soft and shabby chic. Retro, Vintage, Kawaii, Christian, Inspirational.
Ephemera and post cards for my Junk Journals.
Lace and doilies
Sequins and bling
Florals and dried flowers
Breast Cancer awareness
Pen pals (female)
Herbal Teas (fruit flavored)
Buttons (colorful or unique)
Salt and Pepper shakers
Out of the box crafting items such as baking cups, napkins, book papers, receipts, game score pads, used postage stamps, post cards, playing cards, flash cards. Etc.
Foreign Book pages and cards
Pictures and Postcards of Scotland, Ireland, New Zealand, etc.
Victorian lady stickers or stamps
Vintage clock stamps or stickers
Student reward stickers
Bath and body
Dog related papers/stickers
Camouflage, ie. Muddy greens and browns
Tarot cards and the like.
Unlined Stationery - it’s my nemesis! lol although I am trying harder in this area.
I don’t drink, so sayings on stickers or stamps about wine, beer, happy hour is not something that I’d use.
currently had a hysterectomy so the following annoyances that have developed into dislikes may be a result of my current emotional state! 😂 It’s so good to be a woman! 😂🤣😅
Not getting a ❤️ When I send extra or put in a lot of my time on things. Does that make me picky? Vain? I don’t know. Lol, I just know that I always leave a heart if someone has taken the time to make their swap special. That includes extras, handmade items that obviously isn’t just thrown together, even if they take the time to add a handwritten note. Why be so stingy with your hearts? They don’t cost you anything and they look so pretty. If you don’t like what you get, stop joining in Sender’s Choice swaps. 🤷🏻♀️🤪😂
Which brings me to... drum rolllll ... you know it, Not getting rated at all. I don’t enjoy chasing after my ratings. If you don’t receive my swap, LMK, please. If I resend something, please, LMK if you get it. Swap-Bot is set up on the foundation of a rating system and I (especially as a newbie) need your ratings.
Aaaaaand don’t even get me started on those that drop a rating without saying anything. “thanks” isn’t that hard. Oh gosh. I’m on a roll now. Better stop before y’all think I’m rude. 😂
I love mysteries (the fun kind that either have an animal or recipe), romance (historical, regency, inspirational, paranormal), fantasy, and young adult fiction. Basically, I like to read!
Fave books: The Host by Stephanie Meyer, Brandon Mull’s Fablehaven series. Jane Eyer by Charlotte Brontë
And of course, The Holy Bible.
Contemporary Christian is my favorite. I’ve been a long time fan of Third Day. Love Lauren Daigle, Colton Dixon, For King and Country, Toby Mac, and pretty much anyone else played on K-Love!
This Means War
The Phantom of the Opera
50 First Dates
Pride and Prejudice
The Never Ending Story
Never Been Kissed
Sleepless in Seattle
Psych 🍍🍍 🍍
Castle 📝 🕵🏻♀️
SG-1 and SGA 🌌🌠
The Middle 🤪💸
I’m not angry, this is just a reminder. Please don’t read it as I’m angry. I’m pretty laid back.
Been on this site for a bit over a month and I’ve learned one thing the hard way, to my chagrin. I made the mistake of contacting someone with a concern about a swap but I had misread the directions. I’m thankful for 2 things. One, that I privately messaged them my concern and, two, that they handled it so well and corrected me with decorum. I only ask to be treated the same way. If you want to point out something I did wrong in my ratings (which has happened a couple of times already), please, please, reread the swap directions BEFORE leaving the comment. Chances are that you might have misread something just as easily as I could have. Thank you.
That being said, I believe communication is the key. I will not leave a bad rating until I’ve exhausted all other forms of communication. Please message me if there is a problem with a swap or if you’re wondering why I haven’t rated yet. I always rate when I receive the swap.
