About Me

I'm going to put this here for anyone who NEEDS to know....I do NOT sign in here sometimes days at a time...I have had many crazy life challenges since joining swap bot and I swap responsibly with sending on time as well as rating...I do know communication is important and I will send a message if I need to clarify something with a swapper and hope you will do the same...Swap-bot is something I do because I get JOY from it and I value the relationships I have found here...

I'm a wife, mom, grandmother . I am a military spouse so LOVE my patriotic/Americana themes. We own a seasonal cottage in NY state that has a country flare (sunflowers, roosters and bugs with lots of "Grandma & Grandpa decor"...think books, puzzles, picnics, camp fires, journals (lazy days)!!! I'm into reading, gardening and bargain shopping...love watching movies with a big batch of buttery popcorn and walks in the woods! Always have a camera with me.

Favorite Books

Mostly read fiction: Nicholas Sparks and Mary Higgins Clark are my absolute faves! Like mystery, suspense and romance. Christian authors are: Karen Kingsbury, Beth Wiseman, Beverly Lewis,Kathy Herman, Lori Wicks, Terese Hale and Francine Rivers :)

Likes and collectibles

Gardening deco (sunflowers, watering cans, birdhouses,bugs, etc...), cards & stationery, journals, office supplies (post-its any size, unique paper clips, push pins, colored gel ink pens esp. red/green, stickers).

I really appreciate all things homemade and the talent that it takes to create :) I especially love altered or upcycled itmes focusing on reduce,reuse, and recycle!! (aprons from skirts, or pillow shams ,head bands made from men's ties, totes made from anything, PC's from greeting cards or fabric scraps...etc..) Sewing items (any threads, buttons, fabrics , scraps are fun:)

Can never have too many windchimes!!!

Kitchen items I like are: seasonal dish towels, pot holders, seasonal paper napkins (beverage or dinner size),seasonal sprinkles, magnets, I can use anything that is a bread making tool or themed.

Drinks: hot chocolate (any flavor), Individual sugar free drink packets (like crystal light...NO TEA flavors!!)

Dislikes

Not too picky...just don't drink coffee.(hot chocolate lover...any flavor)!! :)

Favorite Crafts

Paper crafts, sewing and upcycling.

Any items, kits or samples of projects that I can use for crafting with my grands ages 10,8 and 5..

Favorite Movies

Collect all Nicholas Sparks movies , Like comedy , Holiday , romantic, and suspense,action. Kevin Costner is my favorite actor and Mare Winningham and Sandra Bullock are my favorite actresses!! Some wishes in this category would be The Blind Side, The Proposal.

Favorite colors

My favorite colors are green and yellow (springy colors). I decorate seasonal so if you are in a swap during a specific holiday think seasonal (ie..Feb. hearts, Mar. St. Pat's, April, Easter...) Really just have fun with me year round and change it up!!! :)

Thrift Store faves

Love doilies, jewelry (wire pierced earrings, bracelets and necklaces), tote bags, used books, wind chimes, owl items, bug items (dragon flies will get you a heart!), bird themed, and gardening deco, kitchen items (aprons,dish towels, cloths and pot holders), patriotic, roosters and sunflowers :) all seasons. .. snowman vs, santa, harvest vs.spooky.. Love CHRISTIAN THEMED anything (note cards, PC's, books, quotes, calendars,memo pads,stickers,magazines).I may think of more later :)

**ALWAYS**

About Me

SEASONAL: Thrift store good condition OK with me!!

WINTER likes: warm fuzzy socks,scarves, teas, hot chocolate, car air fresheners (closed car windows need a good scent), snow anything as long as it is not the real and cold kind..LOL

SPRING likes: Out door decor for gardening, wind chimes, solar lights, seed packets, gardening gloves, small pillows for my front porch furniture to add a pop of color, anything gardening, bugs (especially dragon flies), sun flowers, roosters and patriotic!

SUMMER likes: Bright colors, flowers, themes like watermelon, picnics, popscicles, ice cream, flavored water packets (Crystal light).

FALL likes: pumpkins, leaves, acorns, woodland characters, Thanksgiving, blessings, grateful, home and hearth :)

ALWAYS WELCOME.....memo sheets for any season, anything Christmas, always can use and enjoy what you have made by hand or if you have received anything that was not your taste pass it along...CHRISTIAN themed, paper napkins and kitchen items, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE SURPRISES!!!!

Comment: Love the pot holders? I use those type, cant have the glove ones here since spiders, snakes love to rest inside them (yuk). The tea and hot cocoa will come in handy since Fall temps have arrived here. Thank you for the lovely swap Oh, the tissue holder is perfect for my purse, reminds me of Mary E.

Comment: I loved your mail art theme of LOVE! So colorful and fun! Our mailman commented to my husband that he enjoys seeing all the colorful envelopes I receive (& send). They are a bright spot in his day. Oh, thatโ€™s incentive to send happy mail a lot, eh? The goodies inside are fun. I love that you housed them in a church service program flyer. What great encouragement ideas for sharing kindness that were on the back of the flyer too. Thanks for a fun swap!!๐Ÿ’•
