About Me

Hi Everyone,

I am new to the swap-bot website however, I have been a swapper for 20 years! There is always something new and exciting to swap along with the fun things of the past. I remember the days of getting super excited to see an envelope in my mailbox that I knew was stuffed with FBs and slams. Up until a few years ago, I was still participating in slam swaps. Sadly, times have changed and postage is outrageous.

What I do: I'm currently a sales rep for a construction company. I have a degree in restaurant management that I have never used! I also studied art and photography for three years in college.

I'm a single mom to two awesome kids!!! A girl and a boy who are teens.

I enjoy many things that revolve around the arts from ATCs to pocket letters and art cards. I love inchies, junk journals, embellishments, pocket letters, postcards, planners, scrapbooks, flip books, jewelry, charms, dangles, and slams.

I also love coffee shops, art stores, books, antiques, sequins, buttons, shabby chicness, miniatures, sunglasses, photography, drawing, painting in watercolors, fun socks, pineapples, animals, the beach/ocean, picnics, gardening, traveling, Sanrio, hiking, and movies.

I love pen palling too!! I have been pen palling since grade school. Remember the days of waiting for your pen pal to reply?? I have had some of the same pen pals since I was a teenager, many of whom became my best friends.

Likes: Pinks, blues and greens. stationery with lines, Suzy's Zoo stickers, The Muppets, the 80's, old movies, music, shopping, camping, wine, food and fresh cut grass.

Dislikes: Crummy swaps, leaky pens, crappy markers, animal abuse, traffic, most T.V. shows of today, the news, obnoxious people, Wal-Mart, boring dates, and loud motorcycles!

Favorite Movies

I am a COMPLETE movie buff!!! You name the movie, I've seen it. Okay, well not every movie, but certainly my fair share.

Some of my favorites are: Aspen Extreme, Gone with the Wind, To Kill A Mockingbird, Passion Fish, The Long Walk Home, State Fair, Hello Dolly, Shrek, Anything by Tim Burton, The Help, Super Hero Movies, Empire Records, Super Bad, Dead Poet's Society, With Honors, and anything with the Muppets. As you can tell, I have a huge array of movie genres that I enjoy.

Do Not Send

Please do not send me:

FB's, Slams, Religious literature/stickers/paper, prison mail, coupons, sticky note pads or page flags, chain letters, dish towels, List pads, nail polish, make-up samples, tea bags, candy, scented items.

Please Send =)

Please send the below items...That sounds rude, but you know what I mean, things I like receiving:

Cute socks, fun pens, art supplies, stickers, cute stationery with lines, anything Sanrio or Kawaii, bracelets, ATC's, lip gloss, pocket letters items, paper clips, metal charms, ephemera, junk journals, fibers, and address labels.

Advisory

PLEASE NOTE:

I'm allergic to smoke, so sadly if you are a smoker or someone in your home is, we will not be able to be partners for anything. =(

Comment: thank you for the nice letter on cute stationery. it made me tired just reading all you do! Im feeling a little overwhelmed getting 9 of our children down to key west for my son"s 7/7 wedding--that i expelled some of my nerves throwing out 30 bags of stuff from the school room!!! That was part of over 25 years of homeschool collection of paperwork and curriculum!! I LOVE TO THROW AWAY!! Happy swapping... enjoy summer
