Hello! Welcome and thank you for taking the time to read my profile!
Here is a quick little run down about me so you can get to know me better. I am a stay-at-home mom. My family consists of my husband and our five children, ranging in age from 17 to 6. I have two cockatiels. I live in Arizona. Hot!!😓
I love swapping on swap-bot. It is something that I do for "me" to brighten the otherwise mundane housework, grocery shopping, homework, carpooling, etc. of everyday life. I LOVE SNAIL MAIL!
SOME OF MY FAVORITES:
Colors: any and all shades of green, my very favorite is dark/forest green. I also love deep purple. I especially enjoy green and purple combinations. However, I like all colors. I never met a color I didn't like!
Animals: I love the duck-billed platypus! It is my very favorite animal. I am fascinated with those creatures. They seem like they were made from a bunch of "leftovers" after all the other animals were made.
Also on my favorite animal list are: hedgehogs, Basset Hounds, cockatiels, mallard ducks, walruses, sea horses, and turtles/tortoises
Hobbies: Playing the piano, reading, soccer (I'm a "soccer mom"), crocheting, knitting, exercising, recycling, adding to my collections
Crafts: Crocheting and knitting. I also enjoy cross stitching occasionally. I have tried ATCs in the past and enjoy those, but only when I'm feeling creative; my creativity seems to come and go, usually corresponding with the amount of free time I have. (Which, right now in my life is pretty much nil.) 😄
More detailed descriptions of what I like are below. Feel free to read what you like and skip what isn't relevant:
I love to read. For an idea of what kinds of books I like: crochet or knitting books, magazines or pamphlets; Harry Potter; Jane Austen; "The Host"by Stephenie Meyer; sweet/clean reads; always happy endings; suspense
I dislike sexy romance novels and books with a lot of gory violence.
I love to knit and crochet.
Note: If you have no use for and don't know what to do with your leftover yarn balls, you can send them my way! I make little things from yarn leftovers all the time and I love to have variety in colors.
Favorite collection: I love to collect NATIVITY Christmas ornaments. (Mary, Joseph, baby Jesus, shepherds, and/or wisemen.)
My Other collections:
Anything with a platypus on it
leftover yarn balls
acrylic worsted weight yarn
nicely made ATCs (I especially love profile based ones)
jewelry (necklaces, bracelets, earrings for pierced ears), handmade or store bought
Christmas postcards, store bought, blank/unused
Postcards, blank (prefer non-touristy, but I like all postcards)

anything from my collections section above! 😄

colorful pens/gel pens
Anything (postcards, note cards, images, etc.) in a language foreign to my native English
Images of sunsets on the beach

A handmade (or store bought) half apron with pocket(s)
I am a fan of the paranormal, especially ghosts! I love ghost stories and personal paranormal accounts. I would LOVE to hear yours if you are willing to share your experience! (I am not a fan of the bloody, gory, dark, or evil, however.)
Anything from (or similar to) my etsy favorites
An advent calendar ( love advent calendars of any kind. I love the countdown to Christmas.)
Anything that has to do with platypuses
To whom it may concern/postcard preferences:
I love nearly all postcards, but here is a list of the postcards I particularly enjoy:
Fluffy and/or soft animals, domestic or wild, (photographs that make you want to touch or pet them)
Sea creatures, especially sea horses
Beautiful Religious buildings (outside or inside)
Hawaii or other tropical islands
Vintage (true vintage rather than copies)
Multiview without borders (the pictures fade into each other)
Bassett hound dogs
Cats or dogs
Airplanes in flight
Rainbows (real life photographs)
Autumn leaves or other Fall photographs
Black and White photographs
Anything relating to my likes or collections above
A note about postcard preferences: I mostly prefer postcards sent naked in an envelope if the swap asks for a choice. I love swapping postcards and it is nice to have a variety in my stash. However, I enjoy almost as much to receive stamped and written on postcards, especially if the postcard is from my postcard preferences list above, has a nice, longish handwritten note on it, is nicely decorated and/or has awesome stamps on the back. 🤩
I guess I should add a "dislikes" section:
For recipe swaps: alcohol, eggplant, nuts, seafood, soy or tofu as ingredients.
Coffee or tea. I don't drink these. Sometimes I drink herbal teas.
Macabre, bloody, gory, or demonic
Skulls (although I love Halloween, this is the one thing I find too creepy for my taste. Interestingly though, I like full body skeletons.)
Foul language or excessive violence, erotica.
Sexy romance novels
Zazzle (or other printed) postcards. I'm not quite sure why. I think it has to do with their disproportionate shape and/or paper quality.
I don't do scrap booking or card making
I have all the notebooks, journals, note cards and stationery I need.
Not a fan of Monkeys and apes (with the exception of sock monkeys). The only animals I don't care for much. Again, not really sure why! 🙄
