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!!!
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.
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.
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:
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.
Some of my favorite crafts are:
Cake Decorating (Don’t have time for this one anymore)
Baking ( I LOVE to bake!!)
Making mini scrapbook albums
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.
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.

Dick Van Dyke
The Next Food Network Star
Worst Cooks in America
