If you are my partner for a swap feel free to send these but if they are wrapped please put the person's name they are for:

Since it's close to Christmas I would love wrapped little gifts or stocking stuffers for me (likes below), my dog CiCi (ideas listed below in her section), my sister (she is on this site her name is @ShellyLynn816 ), my boyfriend Kent who is into the Detroit Tigers especially Verlander or Cabrera, Detroit Lions, Texas Rangers especially Josh Hamilton, baseball cards, hot chocolate, grill seasonings/sauces (nothing too crazy he likes kinda plain food lol), beef jerky that's not spicy, dried sausages/hams, cheese, ebay or itunes gift cards of any denomination.

I would also LOVE some caramel areo bars they are super yummy. I like the caremel dairy milk bars too and Cadbury eggs.

Just a note: I will not be opening any wrapped gifts until Christmas.

Let me know if you would like to do a private swap for food, snacks or chcocolate :)

About Me

My name is Sabrina, I'm a 31 yr old living in Michigan. I like to spend time with my boyfriend and we go to baseball games often. I also go to watch him play in his church's softball league.

I like cooking, reading, summer and fall, holidays, anything religious, animals, anything forest related, camping, hunting, fishing, gardening, I have been drawing for years and have taken art classes in college, I am two semesters away from an Associates degree in Photography. I have been doing crafts since I was a kid.

I like to cook from scratch and can foods that I grow. I also make a lot of homemade soaps, lip balms and other things of that nature. I try to live healthy and eat as much as I can that is all natural and organic. I love good quality chocolate, especially dark chocolate.

I am a fairly religious person, but I try to live my life following Jesus' teachings which means I don't judge anyone and love and accept everyone for who they are. So please don't think that because I go to church every Sunday that I am a closed minded fool :)

My sister Shelly is also on swap-bot and sends wonderful swaps her id is @ShellyLynn816

If for ANY reason you do not like or receive your swap PLEASE contact me so I can have the opportunity to make it right. I put a lot of thought and work into my swaps and I want you to be happy.

Books and Music

The Bible or anything christian, anything about crafts, cooking (dog cookbooks too) especially cookbooks about gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan (although I am not a fan of tofu), and any mediterranean cooking, container or square gardening, farming, organic gardening or benifits of local or organic food, living off the grid, canning and preserving food, living green, wilderness survival, herbal or wild plant books, outdoorsy, self-help, anything you might consider motivational or inspirational (doesn't have to be Christian). I like books that change my outlook on things or want to become a better person.

I listen to mostly country but some rock, I love Nirvana and Kurt Cobain's style he had. I also like Bob Marley, Sublime, Tool and others. I also like Christian/Gospel music.

One Love

Favorite Movies

Field of Dreams, Letters to Juliet, Food Inc, Idiocracy, Beerfest, Super Troopers, HotRod, any Clint Eastwood, Adam Sandler, Seth Rogan, or any comedy. I like religious and romantic comedy movies or documentaries about food or living green or off the grid.

Favorite Television

Baseball or Football. Anything on the Food Network or Cooking Channel (I love Paula Deen). I also like Jamie Oliver, Bitchen Kitchen. I watch a lot on the Green Channel and Travel Channel. I like anything on living healthy or crafts or projects. I love the Red Green Show. Family Guy, How I Met Your Mother, and The Fabulous Beakman Boys.

Favorite Crafts

Art (drawing and painting), scrap booking, stamping, knitting, card making, some sewing. I also do many natural crafts like making salves, soaps, bath salts, tonics, teas and other things. I usually sell stuff at the farmer's markets or craft shows.


I have a small dog that I love named CiCi. She is a Mini Pincher, Maltese and Chihuahua mix. She is about 6lbs she looks like a Yorkie with a long tail she is in my profile picture. She is the most important thing I have other than my family and we have went through a lot together.

I try to feed her only natural products, she eats either food that I make myself or the refrigerated Fresh Pet brand dog food or an Organic pet food called Organix. She loves all-natural treats, especially duck strips.

She also likes size XS sweaters since she gets cold if it is below 70 degrees lol. She won't stop shaking until I put one on her. You can usually find them for $5 at some stores or a handmade one would be great. It is getting cold here now so REALLY warm, fuzzy sweaters are great.

If you would like to make her a sweater her measurements are: The measurement from her neck to her tail is a little under 12 inches, her collar is 8 inches her measurement for around her chest right behind her legs is 14 inches. I like the ones that go almost to her tail so she stays warm since she gets so cold in the winter.

My Likes/Wishlist

I have a gluten intolerance and therefore can't have anything with gluten in it or I will become very ill. If you look in the ingredient list there will be an allergy listing next to it and if it lists gluten, wheat, rye, or barley I cannot eat it. I am usually ok if it only says made in a facility that processes wheat. I always check everything I eat so don't worry too much about making me very ill as long as it looks like you tried I will just give what is sent that I can't eat to my boyfriend. Please make sure if the ingredients are from another country I would really appreciate a translation.

  • I went to a nutritionist and she prescribed me a diet so I eat mostly a Mediterranean diet full of gluten-free pastas, whole grains (like wild or brown rice, quinoa, ect) olives and olive oil, nuts (especially walnuts and pine nuts), fish and other seafood, eggs, poultry, cheeses like parmesan and other Italian cheeses that are very hard or goat and sheeps milk cheeses, tomatoes, fresh fruits and vegetables, vinegars(white and red wine, balsamics, ect), herbs of any kind, pestos and other mixes/spreads, and similar things.

  • I would love some clotted cream, local jams, or
    curds for my biscuits.

  • Also I love the protein/fruit bars like Lara and others, the gluten-free ones are clearly labeled on the package and can be found at most stores.

  • I LOVE DARK CHOCOLATE!!!! I like the chocolate bars that have nuts and fruit in them, but plain is good too. I don't really like white chocolate. I cannot have the nougat (unless it says it doesn't have gluten/wheat in the allergy listing), or chocolate with cookies, biscuits or most fillings since they contain gluten. I do like the ones with caramel that is made with sugar instead of corn syrup. I love Aero bars with caramel or dairy milk with caramel. I also love Cadbury especially the eggs which we can only get at Easter time.

  • I love the flavor of real mint, especially with chocolate. I also love stuff like candies and cookies flavored with real maple syrup or lemon although I don't know if they make many gluten free versions of these.

  • Tea or related items as long as they are not overly common brands since I like to try new things. I currently have enough of any plain black(unless it's unique), chai, plain green, earl gray, or lady earl gray. I do like the green/jasmine though.

A list of teas I've been sent that I love:

   -raspberry/chocolate from Germany

   -verveine oragjebloesem and sinaasappel    
    by Pickwick from the Netherlands
  • Coffee-anything unique to your area. Different coffee roasted in your area. I also like espresso. I have to have coffee that is whole bean and grind it myself due to it may possibly be contaminated with gluten by the machines.

  • Unusual or local (to you) foods like pure maple syrup, agave nectar, honey, candy, chocolate, olive oil, nuts, and other stuff.

  • marzipan

  • I like anything gardening related.

  • Anything that is all natural or holistic. I really like natural lip balms, lotions, body wash, ect that are organic or all natural and have only ingredients I know what they are since gluten may be hidden in them. I like things to relax like candles and bubble bath.

  • Herbs or spices. I love good quality spices like cinnamon, vanilla, flavored sea salts, gluten-free mixes for cooking, ect. Most all spices and herbs are gluten-free, it's the mixes I have to watch for.

  • Anything cooking or baking or kitchen related. I love frilly aprons (not the heavy grilling aprons).

  • I would love any kind of cookbooks that have gluten-free recipes. Or books on living gluten-free. I eat mostly Medieterranean foods so cookbooks with those are great. I also like vegetarian and vegan cookbooks, unless they are all about tofu.

  • Dog related items for my CiCi, like sweaters, collar charms, toys, ect. I am doing a scrapbook of her so I am always looking for dog or pink princess/spoiled/girly related scrapbook stuff.

  • I would love bibles that are different languages very old ones would be best but new ones are good too. I would like very old antique looking bibles in English too.

  • My favorite color is pink especially pink camo. I also wear a lot of browns, gray, pale colors like yellow, green, purple, ect. I like mostly soft or eathtone colors. I don't really care for red unless it's burgundy. I don't really wear white either.

  • Pretty fishing lures especially pink, purple, white or sparkly colors.

  • T-shirts that are unique size small or medium, thrift store items are fine if they don't have holes or stains on them. It's fine if they are the old, soft ones.

  • Floor length skirts size medium. Soft, comfortable ones not like the stiff polyester ones. I like the ones that are flowy and not tight.


  • I cannot eat anything with gluten, MSG (mono sodium glutamate), nitrates, sulfites, aspartame or any artificial sugar, anything with a lot of artificial colors, preservatives, flavors or other ingredients. These things cause me to have migraines and a bad stomach ache :(

  • I am not a fan of high fructose corn syrup.

  • I do not like cinnamon flavored candy or chai tea. I do not like pink bubble gum or fruit punch flavored anything.

  • I am not a fan of Wiccan, Pagan items or Tarot cards. Gothic or dark things are fine. I do not have problems with people that are into any of these items I just don't want them and I will appreciate that they may not want me to send them religious items :)

  • Astrology

  • I don't use pencils unless they are for art (8Bs, prismas, ect.) I also don't use erasers unless they are art grade.

  • foam

  • postcards unless they are part of the swap I am in

  • drama or people who are judgemental or argumentative

Some Info On Gluten

A gluten-free diet is a diet that excludes the protein gluten. Gluten is found in grains such as wheat, barley and rye:


Graham flour
Matzo meal
Spelt (a form of wheat)
Food additives, such as malt flavoring,           
modified food starch and others.


Grains and starches allowed in a gluten-free diet include:

Gluten-free flours (rice, soy, corn, potato, 
Hominy grits
Pure corn tortillas
Most dairy products

Here is a list of candies from the US that I can have:

list of candies

Most foods have an allergy listing that says if it contains gluten, wheat, rye or barley. I usually ok if it says produced in a facility that processes rye, barley, wheat or gluten.

Comment: I really hate to do this... Sabrina, I really hope you come back to Swap-bot and make good on your swaps. It sounds like you have stiffed a lot of people, and also not bothered to rate other people who sent you really awesome packages. I will change this rating if I ever hear from you.

It amazes me how you can just walk away and pretend that none of this ever happened. Where are you? What's up?

daarhon on Apr 21, 2012:

Nice to see you still have time to post in your blog, drink cocktails and post photos on you FB but don't have time to rate me or fix your bad rating. Keep up the good work, miss Chicken Thief.

flofirenzie on Mar 17, 2012:

If you ever come back I would gladly send you money to cover the postage for the return of, not one, but two, yes two, of my traveling journals. I would really like them back.

kittenred on Dec 24, 2011:

I'm sorry but you have now been removed from both The Butterfly Anarchists group and Fun Mail group due to inappropriate ratings. (rules for both groups state you must have a 4.9 minimum and you now have a 4.7) I requested to have the recipe /food zine swap removed so that you wouldn't have a 5th '1' rating to deal with. I hope you do return to make good on your swaps and I wish you good luck in the future!

namelessgirl on Dec 19, 2011:

Hi Sabrina! Could you please rate me for the Hibernation Preparation swap? I spent a lot of money and time on that package... I'd really like to know that you got it. The tracking number from the post office shows that it got delivered...

3goldkeys on Dec 19, 2011:

Your sister passed along to you that I would like to be rated and you still have not done so.

flofirenzie on Dec 17, 2011:

You have my only 2 traveling journals: What did you do all day? and Traveling Journal. If you are not going to send them on in the swaps please send them back to me. I will gladly pay for the postage.

Hello Sabrina. I see that you've not been on swap-bot since Nov. 22. I pm'd you on Nov. 30 to see if you have rec'd the filled X-mas Stocking in the Mail. My delivery confirmation indicates that you rec'd it on Nov. 26. When you return online, kindly let me send me a reply. I know that you indicated you would not open the stocking until x-mas, but I'd still like to know that you rec'd it as it was an awesome gift and it is rather dissapointing that you have not acknowledged it. I hope that all is well with you. Anxiously waiting a reply.
