About Me and Likes

Thank you @LoveToCraftInAZ Lisa and @widelo123 Shirley @MsKuky Liza for being so kind and supportive. You are truly Christmas angels. :)

Teas - since I am doing a lot of tea swaps these days. I like all kinds of teas, and am willing to try any of them at least once. I do not have any allergies. I will be happy with anything you send me, the more unusual the better. I especially love spicy teas.

For Speedy Found ATC's - please do not send me pictures of children or babies. I am not married, and I have never had any children. I do not find pictures of them to be 'cute.' I also do not want any pictures of toilets. Thank you.

Things I like: Swords, pictures of warriors, beautiful knives, anything Middle Earth elven, unicorns, dragons and other mythical creatures. I want an Eye of Sauron Christmas ornament. Oh, and a lego Barad-Dur to put in my garden. It is about 8 feet tall. Eru! I would love this! Other things I like - anything about Ancient Egypt.

Some of you have asked about my name, or at least said that they were wondering. My real name is Nathalie. It is pronounced Nath - a - lee, NOT Nat - a - lee. I was named after my Mother's best friend. Please do not call me Nat, or think of me in those terms. Nath, or Nathi is okay. I hate being called NAT with a passion. A gnat is a little bug that flies in your face and is very annoying.

My nickname is Cynaemon, which is an anagram of all of my names.

For the Imaginative Writing Group and Fantasy PenPal Swap: Hello, my name is Ecthelion, but you can call me Etele. I am an elve and I live in Middle Earth. I was born during the First Age, and died in the Fall of Gondolin. I was remade in the Third Age. You can read a lot about me in canon works, but the history books do not tell all. I have told more of my story in my book, 'Secret Agent Elve'. I am looking forward to hearing from you. Best Wishes, Etele, Lord of the Fountain

PINTEREST SWAPPERS - PLEASE NOTE - All of my boards will be Middle Earth related. I really love putting together my boards, and when I signed up for Pinterest it was my intention to make most of my boards Middle Earth/Lord of the Rings/Hobbit related. I don't want anyone to be disappointed in the boards that I do. I really enjoy putting my boards together.It is a great hobby for me and is my escape from my boring and humdrum life.

Absolutely love anything Middle Earth related, especially Silmarillion, and Lord of the Rings. Not so fond of the Hobbit. Please do not send me anything breakable.

Sept 2012 - I absolutely love slash fanfiction. I read everything I can get my hands on, and I write slash when I am not reading it. While this may not be your cup of tea, I love it. I love the freedom it gives me to write about things I would not normally write about. I also write "normal" things, mostly poetry, and, yes, children's stories. You can find that writing at www.writing.com/authors/noelanicat

Update - October 2011 - I just want to thank all of you for your lovely and positive messages. I am doing so much better these days, and am really

Hi, I want to thank this community for the warm welcome and encouragement I have received. I have tried to clear up the many ones I have, but most people from way back then are no longer active on swapbot. There is only one which is, and she refuses to contact me despite that fact that I have sent her the swap, and also PM'd her. I really don't know what else to do.


Recent upgrades from ones

As you can see I have come a long way since I came back. The recent threes are upgrades from some of the ones from the past, and I do not blame those people for giving me threes, as it was over a year before they received their items. Other people were generous to give me 5's. If you have any questiosn about my account, please PM me. Thanks.

Comment: I very much appreciate you coming back to SB and surprising me with the altered book summer journal. Love how you used the children's book as the foundation. May you have many happy summers to come.

Response: Hi, Crescendo, Thanks so much. It is good to be back. And I am glad you liked the journal. I had very happy memories of you and I so enjoyed making it for you.

hoosiergirl rated for List Of 100 Things That Happen Around Me on Aug 1, 2011

Rating: 5

Comment: Thank you so much for contacting me and making up this swap! What a GREAT list and I love the way you used a scrapbook type format. You obviously put a lot of time and effort into it :0). I an enjoying reading the list. Thanks

Response: Thanks so much. I really enjoyed putting it together for you, and glad you liked the format.

Favorite Music

Handel's Suite in D Minor for piano, especially the third movement - Sarabande.

Favorite singer is Ke'alii Reichel.

Favorite Movies

Don't really have any favorite movies.

Favorite Television

Survivor, Amazing Race, Big Brother.

Favorite Crafts

I like art journals.

Postcards: I have collected for many years, but no longer actively collect except for nude males. I have found some beautiful and artistic cards of nudes.

Explanation for some ones

I will be explaining some of the ones that I have received which I think are undeserved, but before I do I would like to say that I have met many wonderful, kind and understanding people on this site, and I value their friendship greatly. I look forward to many more swaps with the wonderful people in this community. And I am most happy to be here. Peace, Nathalie

Looking through my profile at the ones that I have, and it occurs to me that I do not have that many open or unsent swaps, therefore I should not have that many ones. After careful inspection, I find that a lot of the swaps I sent out were never re-rated from a 1 to a 3 or 5. After further investigation, I find that many of these people have not been on Swapbot for many years. It is my understanding that even if you send a swap out late your partner should at least rate you a three, since they have received the swap. Obviously many people do not give people even that little bit of respect. So I am posting all the swaps I have been in and sent out which were not re-rated, as they should have been. Also, it is my understanding that people should at least give you a chance to send out a swap, and a chance to be re-rated. Obviously there are people who who do not feel they need to abide by that rule either. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!

Certainly you can still choose to not have me participate in your swap. Fine. That is your choice and your loss.

efjellro rated for ESG: New Year - New You! on Jan 9, 2020
Comment: Thank you, I really enjoyed reading your answers. About mindfulness, I interpret it as not just being present in the moment all the time, but as to not letting your past disturb you or the future trouble you. For me, it's about enjoying what I have today. Not worrying about what I could have done different yesterday, or worrying about if I will make it through tomorrow. By the way, Happy Birthday soon, I'm also a January child.
Comment: That sounds like a nice book. I have read one or 2 books of his.

ESG: Quick Friendly Profile Comment swap

I don't know a lot of about Lord of the Rings and Middle Earth but what I have seen I rather enjoyed. I thought this GIF was rather beautiful, hope you like it and happy swapping.

Hi Nathalie,
Here a little message for you. I also enjoy the Harry Potter stories and Lord of the Rings movies. This time of the year they mostly broadcast these on our television. Love it!

Wishing you a wonderful Christmas and a healthy, creative and wonderful 2019.
