About Me


I have been a member of Swap-bot since March of 2007

Hi my name is Syndee and I live in the High Desert of Southern California, about 3 hours south of Las Vegas, NV, 3 hours north of SanDiego and 2.5 hours east of Los Angeles. I live at the northern base of the San Bernardino mountain range as well. I could eat breakfast in the mountains then lunch at the beach with supper in the city and home by 10pm. Prime location if you ask me. Some of the benefits of living in SoCal. Ü

I am a born again Christian who loves the Lord and I strive to live for Him the best that I can.

I'm a mother of 3 daughters ages 28, 24, and 22 and a wife of 31+ years. I work with special needs kids as a teacher's aid. I love it! These kids are amazing. I love the hearts of these kids. I Clean house for an elderly couple once a week, they are just precious people. As a third part time job, I'm overseer of the nursery at our church. My heart is for the babies!! I seem to be in there more than in the service! I make a monthly volunteer schedule for the Sunday morning services and am responsible for finding childcare workers when special events or even random meetings pop up. This is a fun but sometimes frustrating job. I love working with the children but the challenge comes when trying to find others with that same love!! So as you can see I am a very busy woman. Summers I get a break from my school job so that's when I get to swap!! Yay!!!


A note about extras and hearts

I give hearts for the actual swap and not for extras. If the swap puts a smile on my face, you will receive a heart. I always rate fairly and always leave a comment. I do not send extras unless it's something I know you will really love. I hope you will rate my swaps the same.

Favorite Books

My all time favorite book is "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn"

When I have time to read, I enjoy Christian romance, and mysteries. I don't much care for books that have graphic sex or foul language in them.

Updated 6/10/15

With my busy schedule I've become quite addicted to audible.com. I am able to listen to so many more books than I would have time to read! Some books I've recently loved are:

Sara's Key

The Secret Keeper

The Night Circus-loooooved this one!!

The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry

Water for Elephants

The Girl on the Train

Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine

Before We Were Yours

I am currently listening to: Uniquely Human I am anxiously awaiting the new Grisham novel and the new Kate Morton novel.


I love scrapbooking supplies, paper, cupcake themed items, clear stamps, stamp pads, hearts, **the color pink, gingerbread men, popcorn, flavored ground coffees, fibers, buttons, ribbon,vintage sewing notions, antique mason jars, 1940's kitchen (especially the green of that era) stuff, adhesives (I'm an adhesive junkie!), chocolate, beads, baskets, bows, handmade cards, prima flowers, sunflowers, Gerber daisies (especially pink), just about anything pink. I love candles that have fruity or home cooked scents such as Pumpkin spice, Butter Cookies etc.

Favorite Crafts

Some of my favorite crafts are:

Cake Decorating (Don’t have time for this one anymore)

Card making

Pocket Letters

Baking ( I LOVE to bake!!)

Making mini scrapbook albums

Making ATCs

Book altering

Altering just about anything



Collecting craft supplies (can you relate? Ü)

tatting (haven’t mastered this but my desire is there)

I really love learning new techniques and new crafts. I'm always surfing the internet looking for new ideas and new things to try.


I dislike:


Rude people


Moochers and

Gossip hounds

Nasty pictures

Pagan or Wiccan items

Vampires (They creep me out most of all)


Anything with a dark, or horror theme

I am allergic to strong floral scents so please keep that in mind when putting together a swap for me. I don't take baths (don't worry I shower daily! ;D ) so bath salts, bubble bath etc. are not useful to me.

Favorite Television

I Love Lucy


Andy Griffith

Mary Tyler Moore

Dick Van Dyke


Amazing Race


Master Chef

Hell's Kitchen

The Next Food Network Star

Worst Cooks in America

Flip or Flop

Fixer Upper

Other home improvement shows

Comment: Thank you so much for the two beautiful postcards, mailart and extra. I really enjoy reading your letter. The wildlife seems amazing!!!
Comment: I'm so lucky to get you as my partner again! I love this design and the way you echoed the flower pattern from the envelope to the tag. Love the doily accent and the sewing you did on the tag--that little maroon tab really sets it off beautifully. Your work is always so nice! p.s. Many thanks for the extra goodies; I will put them to good use!

Thank you so much for the Kindle book for my wish in the Wishlist group! =) Got to love that super fast delivery for wishes!

mejulia on Jun 13, 2014:

The wonderful package for my June wish list came today. Thank you so much, I enjoy everything. You are so thoughtful. I lived in Palmdale though would love to live in your area. I love collecting gingerbread people and would love to exchange stuff with you. I don't have any cupcake stuff but I can look for it. As for giraffe stuff, I don't collect it. I am a chemo angel for a person who likes giraffes so I enjoy finding small, easy to mail giraffe stuff. The card you sent is perfect. I would be happy to exchange for other small mailable notes or items. Thank you again for the great wish list package.
