Swap-bot

**I have had a previous account (SwappingGoofy). I have not been able to get into that account for the past nine months. I did send notice to swap-bot admin but never heard back from them. I don't know if that email was lost in limbo or what. I have no way of checking as I know longer have access to the email that is associated with the old account. Therefore, I did set up a new account. My new account is this one -mailjunkie.

The ratings that I do have are for old swaps that I will be attempting to correct. Whether or not the swap partners choose to respond, is up to them. As soon as my accounts are merged, I will provide more information and updates in a separate section.

RATINGS:

I promise to rate as soon as I receive your swap. I know how people sometimes depend on the ratings to participate in future swaps.

I know LIFE HAPPENS! I can certainly attest to that (depression, abusive relationship, children with school problems, moving and surgeries are some of what I have had to deal with the past few months and yes, it is and was quite overwhelming.) I came back to swap-bot because I finally could return to what I enjoyed participating in.

With that being said, if you have a problem or concern, I will understand if you need some more time. I am pretty laid back. Just don't leave me hanging. I think in my Swap-bot history, I have given out 2 "1" & few "3".

I make every attempt to send you something that you would like. ~ I especially take the time to read your profiles. There is nothing more more disheartening than receiving something that you don't like. My goal is to send you happy mail. With that note, when you do get my swap, please leave a rating. It is a simple courtesy to let me know you received your swap. If you did not get it, please let me know and I'll resend. If I don't see a rating from you, I will send you a message to ask you for your rating.

Also, if for some reason, your swap comes with postage due ~ please let me know and I'll reimburse you for the cost with new postage stamps.

Hope to see you at the mailbox someday.

~~~~~ME~~~~~ I am Lora, a single mom of 3 boys. Living the quiet life in rural Wisconsin. We just got a kitten (about 2 months old) & his name is Sammy. Otherwise, my home is non - smoking.

My user name is mailjunkie ~ since I love to have my mailbox full with fun things instead of those bills. Each envelope that I open is like meeting with a friend. I have a lot of fun sending things out to new friends as well. I love trying to send some sunshine in an envelope.

Oh, by the way, I am also a pen, paper, coffee (k-cups), chocolate & yarn junkie.

I love to swap ~ getting back into it after a long break. I like to swap smaller flat pieces @ the moment. I swap pen pal letters, stickers, coupons, postcards, note cards, stationery, ~ basically anything that can go in a # 10 envelope until I get back into swapping on a regular basis. I also swap NICE & NEAT: friendship books, sheets, bags, etc. as well.

Important news!

On Dec 29th, 2014 ~ I will be having surgery on my knee. It will be a same day procedure. However, recovery time wiIl be about 6-8 weeks. I would love it if you could drop me a line or two on my profile page to help keep my spirits up! I don't have many friends locally ~ and the ones I do have are scattered throughout the world or on the internet.

Thanks!

Some of my favorites

Here is a short list of my favorites :

Candles ~ any scent at the moment

Chocolates ~ ♡ especially with caramel or coconut

TRUE lime ~ black cherry limeade (it is like a crystal light that you add into water. Most often found in the kool-aid / crystal light aisle ~ come in a green box)

Color ~ purple, pinks, teal & yellows

Cupcakes ~ love them!

Animals ~ hummingbirds, butterflies, and baby animals

Season ~ fall & winter ~ ♡ the colors and scents of fall. Snowmen and angels are some of my favorites for winter.

Flowers ~ sunflowers & pansies

K-cups ~ I haven't tried them all - so I can't pick a favorite yet.

Tea bags ~ I prefer the packaged ones

Hobbies ~ knitting, reading, swedish weaving, pen pals, swaps, gardening, coupons, and just spending time with my family & friends.

My wishlist

Craft sample wishlist: I have not seen these and would like to get one.

Whimsy Jar

Inchies & Twinchies

Match boxes

~My Wishlist ~

Private swaps

Address labels

Sticker sheets - any but the teacher rewards are ok (have tons of them right now)

Notecards

Blank postcards

Washi tape - trying to find more seasonal ones or with characters.

Coupons ~ I will put up a specifics list at a later date ~ at this time food, cleaning products, & cat care items work great!

Chocolates: ♡ especially with caramel or coconut.

K-cups ~ I prefer the flavored coffees and hot chocolates. The Snapple peach tea is my oldest's favorite.

Coffee~ I have a reusable filter cup for my keruig. I will also take the sample (one pot brew bags). There are many fun flavors. I recently found a candy cane flavored one. Yum!

Tea ~ love tea also (no allergies/ dislikes) - but I am looking for some of the holiday flavored ones as well.)

For the crafters:

I have some mini craft projects (the kits that come in the mail.) I am cleaning out some of these kits since I know I won't be doing them.

I have a couple of quilt sets (with fat quarters/fabric)~ a quilted blue purse - I was going to use the fabric for something else. I also have a Java Gems fat quarters (browns/greens) which is a table mat project.

With the sewing projects, I have a binding miter with basic sewing/ quilting how tos.

For the paper enthusiasts: I have 2 card projects: a masculine one & Simply Romance. These 2 are still sealed, never opened. I also have 2 other ones that have been opened but have lots of die-cuts, embellishments and other odd ends.

I even have a wooden birdhouse wind chime that you can paint & decorate. It hasn't been opened but I can see that the paint is dried out.

I do have different fabric pieces that I would like to let go as well. Different themes. If you are interested, send me a message.

I also have colored tulle as well some by the yard and some on spools. Again, pm me if you are interested.

I will swap for new yarn (non-smoking environment) ~ especially, pinks and blues baby yarns as I use it to knit hats for the newborns at the local hospital. Or I will swap for some new postage stamps or profile wishlist items.

Response: Thank you for the rating & the ♡. I am glad you liked it. I would love to do letters and small packages/envelopes. My post card stash is very small @ the moment. I never can seem to find a large selection where I live. Have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family.
