About Me

I am a stay at home mom with a daughter who is in Kindergarten this year. I have been on swap-bot for 6 years and take great pride in all of my swaps. With my daughter going to school. I need to start getting artistic again and using the time I have to sit and be still with my crafts. I am a gold star recipient Girl Scout so I have just started the first Daisy troop in my area so the family tradition can continue. My daughter is a 4th generation Girl Scout! I just started a new group for kids to swap along with us. “Kids Swappers” as soon as we get a member or two I will start posting swaps. I can’t with just us so far. 😜

I will always try to get your mail out in time... With that said my mailman in Florida decides the days that he’s going to come by or just not show up. If he doesn’t show up I usually end up having to drive about 20 minutes to the post office and get out later that night. I’ve never missed a swap and have always used a particular system, so that I don’t. I even bought the USPO mail scale, so I can send right from home. With that said if you do not receive my package, please message me. I have never had anything less than 5's and I take great pride in spoiling my swappers!

I love items with the theme of or the items themselves.....play/book Wicked, wacky medical equipment, Disney, witches, Halloween, autumn, Thanksgiving, Elves, my Swedish culture, Gingerbread Men/Women, Casinos, University of Connecticut, traveling, anthropology, bones of all sorts, military, law enforcement,old keys and PEZ machines. Law enforcement patches.All things girl scouts.(GirlScout Patches, pins, books, and anything that you can think of. Someone took the time to earn those and I feel that they should be with people who like to display them and love them! Quirky items, 1980s patches, pins. Old medical equipment, old medicine labels, old medical bottles, bones, teeth, funeral home items, funeral prayer cards. ( I am not that dark of a person but I started collecting this stuff as a child and have a whole room dedicated to my collecting. People are always surprised but interested.) I am an old soul and find great spiritual connections with items.

Favorite Music

I love show tunes! Disney songs are so much fun. I do sing them like I am the lead princess...(Jazz hands and all) I can not think of a type of music that isn't on my play list.

Favorite Crafts

Mostly paper crafting these days. Smash Journals, ATC, Scrapbooking, card making, junk journals Started a planner again with a friend, so inspiring and religious items to help us together get through our treatment days is great.

Junk jewelry all crystals and gaudy 🙂 add them to fake flower arrangements.

Also, painting rocks with the kids and hiding them in the state parks. It’s a great way to get my daughter outside.

Favorite Television

It seems if I love it- It will go off the air...Maybe I have bad taste...I updated bc 20 shows on here were all cancelled. So currently Bobs Burgers is a favorite, The goldbergs, Fresh off the boat, Brooklyn 99, Snapped. Netflix bing worthy series that are fun too!

Rating system

I always try to spoil my partners. I hate opening a SB package and being disappointed so I will always try to make your day a little happier. If I fail to do so please message me me !! I strive for HEARTS...But really I strive to make you you smile. I will always try to be profile based even if not required.

In my rating process, I’ve only had to give ones to people who never sent their swap. I always look at the date that someone has started with swap bot and/or how they have been rated in the past. With so many new members, I have been trying to guide people in the right direction...when they send a swap that may (sort of) meet requirements, but it’s still garbage to most of us... I have been sending messages to try to rectify. The population of swappers has grown tremendously and it takes season swappers to keep the group a positive swapping environment. We do not want to lose our members who value and appreciate swaps....Because to a lot of us it is a very important part of our life. So let’s be truthful and helpful to the newcomers who may not know the correct way to send a package. Let’s also not let people take advantage of good hearted people. I give out fives & mostly hearts if effort is put forth. If I do not write a comment it’s because I haven’t got a chance I will always try to come back and give you one. If for some reason you get a five and a heart with no message just assume I love it.

I just started postcard swaps and were I live in FL it has been hard to find them. So if I send you a duplicate please let me know and I will find a new one.Surprisingly? I have only been able to find them at our local Walmart. So I have all my friends, family and local thrift shops looking for me.

What makes me 😃

Please no food or tea. I have allergies. Thank you.

  • I like surprises! I put many things in my what about me section...so this may be some of the same items....I am not offended by anything. I worked in law enforcement and have tough skin. If something is funny or religious, I accept that you’re sending it to me because it something that you enjoy. I am a non-denominational Christian and find it important to share messages with one another if you are so compelled. I also am very open to all religions, shamanistic messages, healers and crystals work. Eastern and Western medicine combined have help me on my personal journey. So everything is welcome. Christian items of motivation are always loved and needed it seems as I receive them.

-play money, board game pieces, real money-foreign currency (if you like is always nice:),coins -poodle or labradoodle items-stickers and such -stickers are so fun in my smash journal, Bible journal and my 365 planner . My favorites are the stickers from "The paper studio" @ Hobby Lobby Especially when they are half off. (at least once a month} and the Stickos. Flat stickers please. If the are puffy the wont let the journals close. {No teacher reward stickers please.} -larger paper punches or Sizzix cut outs. The small ones do not ship that well. Small=smaller than my thumb nail. -Sizzix bigz cartridges -Starbucks anything. - I love tickets, play tickets, taxi tickets, train tickets international movie or tickets of any kind. If it’s on a thick paper. I love it. - Thick and neatly cut outs from magazines, pictures, posters, cards, anything that can be double-sided tape down or glue stick down to a journal. -Map pieces -Old Book Pages -Sheet Music pages -markers or nice calligraphy pens- pens/markers of all sorts and widths -“wicked” the musical, “UConn” or Connecticut themed items. -fuzzy socks (foot size 8.5) -bath bombs (non toxic ones -not from the dollar tree- ones that are safe for skin) -face masks -Girly things- new makeup /make up samples. I am in every blind box company possible. So I always end up with samples of things that I have duplicates of, or just won’t use. The makeup swaps used to be really popular. But don’t seem to see them much anymore. We could always start our own group or have a private spot. -postcards (surprising hard for me to find anywhere and I live in Florida 🙂) -LuLaRoe OS -Vera Bradley anything -hair bows for my 4 year old. Kids jewelry for her. No earrings yet. -Love the golden girls...my daughter was named after Sophia and tells everyone! - I do enjoy the Japanese cutesy paper that is thick enough to write on and stickers. My daughter love them even more.

Dislikes- I do have enough ribbon,threads and fibers to wrap around my neighborhood so please send it to someone else for me. I don't want you to waste it. No food or drinks. I can not wear earrings or bracelets. (so if it is a new piece, please send it to somebody who could use it. Because I’ll end up using it in a craft. ) ******Private swaps always available for pretty much anything****** I also have hundreds of paper punches most really rare Martha Stewart ones,so if you ever want to trade fun stuff or are in need of a certain theme-let me know. I have come to terms with the fact that I’m a hoarder of really nice things. If you ever want to do a private trade of kids or adults craft items I do have my daughter doing swaps. Great lessons come along with swapping. If you ever want to do a private trade of kids or adults LuLaRoe clothing items I do you have a closet full with tags. (Not a consultant!) 🙂 all large trades or expensive trades. We will make sure that we use a tracking number. Every ($30+) expensive trade that has been set up and that I have signed up for in the past six years I have been flaked on. I still sign up, in hope that people will have enough respect for each other to stop this type of practice. I also believe in karma.

Swaps for Children

I saw a few swaps for children recently...then I was unable to find them again.So I will hopefully find some for Christmas stockings items this year, She loves those!

So I wanted to include some of her likes: She loves Bobs Burgers,-Tina is her favorite (today) but who can pick? My little ponys, Shopkins, hair bows, Claire’s little kids collection items. (She doesn’t have her ears pierced.) Necklaces. All the girl "Blind Bags". Girly things. Has a generic American girl doll. Just starting to like crafts but is still too young and impatient to sit and complete anything. She has started a junk journal and enjoys writing in it (as best as 5 year old can) adding sticker and paper punches.

Most of the small craft kits that we have bought the paints are dried up and she gets so frustrated (as do I) that she “quits” for a while. So the less expensive ones that have the markers with them are more her speed. She liked anything she can customize with markers.

She likes the smelly pens and markers. Poodles. Unicorns. Fairies (has a fairy garden outside and a door to the fairy realm on the wall of her bedroom. So she can fly in and out. Her fairies name is Pixie). Loves Mermaids. She is a new Girl Scout Daisy.
School colors are the Florida gators blue and orange. She can not read yet but likes me to read her the American girl doll books and fancy Nancy books. (Sometimes you can find them at the thrift store for 25 cents. Used)

Her name is Sophia and she is 5. Her favorite stores are Claires, 5 Below, and Sweet frog frozen yogurt.

She has many allergies so please refrain from sending food treats, candy, anything smoky and stuffed animals. I wouldn’t want you to waste them.Also,nothing with lose sparkles! I hate sparkles because I hate to clean them up and they never disappear.

Kids private swaps would be great as she learns to write I feel it is important for her to make the package, write the note and use her allowance to make the purchase. *With my guidance of course!

Response: Your being investigated by swap-bot for fraudulent activity on numerous accounts. I also stated I will be refuse to send to a fake name to a PO box a package of over $40. I sent you the legal verbiage and laws regarding this as larceny 6th in your state. I will be the angel for the many people that you never sent packages to.(Already spoke to many of them so those people get the items you never sent. I have been on this site 6 years...I can not believe that you feel your actions are justified...just by starting a new account since you were banned still does not make you a member of this community) I can not believe that you have the audacity after all the swaps that you have skipped sending...under 3 names you would push this issue farther.

Comment: Thank you for a great package! The paw print for the Cricut is so adorable! Thank you for the cotton ball tip as well. I have a ‘handicap’ pen which is about five times the size of a regular pen and this helps with writing. I will try adding cotton balls too. Thank you!

Hello....wondering how you are doing...

I suffered several years with very bad ulcerative colitis. I am now much better thanks to a healing diet.
