About Me

Hi! I am an original swap-bot member who took an unplanned ten year break from the site. I missed swapping and am glad to be at a point where I can participate again. Some things have stayed the same, but others have really changed. I'm always looking for trusted swappers and groups whose members like to do really nice swaps.

I work hard to be a great swap partner. My goal is to give as good of an experience as I hope to receive. If you ever have any concerns please let me know.

I also work hard to be a great swap host. I always angel my swaps should the need arise. My goal is always to give others a great experience and model the wonderful hosts who have done the same for me.

I'm a librarian and a faculty member focused on the undergraduate student experience.

I love shopping. I love stationery, colorful pens, and writing letters and post cards. I love hot summer weather with plenty of sunshine. I love sending and receiving mail. I'm fond of gel pens and ballpoint pens in a variety of colors, especially green, orange, and pink. If I use a pencil it will be a mechanical pencil (.5mm).

I am on an ongoing quest to find the perfect purse.

I love sewing although I have been on a crafting hiatus. My fabric stash consists primarily of 100% cottons in solid colors, floral prints, polka dots, stars, fun random patterns, and other cute designs. I like making zipper pouches, snap pouches, reusable bags (I participated in the morsbags project), and aprons. I also have a nice stash of buttons, threads, and other sewing accessories. I still need to learn how to make button holes.

I'm a big fan of Orbit WHITE Bubblemint gum, milk chocolate, Stauffers chocolate animal crackers, cashews, and chocolate covered graham crackers. I've rediscovered 100 Grand candy bars, so good!

I do not like coffee, chai, dark chocolate, or melon anything. I do like most tea (herbal, green, and black). Constant Comment decaf and Orange Pekoe are particular favorites. I do not like English Breakfast or Rooibos tea.

Colors I enjoy include white, black, pink, green, blue, orange, and red. During the pandemic I began buying my prescription glasses online and own frames in many of these colors.

I love video games. I game from time to time on my Nintendo Switch. I also have a SNES, PS4, and Wii in my collection, but not hooked up. Styles of game play I like include RPG, fighting, and first person shooter. I'm a big fan of Super Mario/Paper Mario, Ratchet and Clank, classic Mortal Kombat I-III, Tetris,and Zuma. I enjoy many card games as well.

I am allergic to melons and nickel. I dislike spicy and musk scents, as well as cigarette smoke.

Favorite Music

Currently enjoying Yacht rock, classic rock, pop, rap, hip-hop, r&b, smooth jazz, dance, electronica and anything with steel drums. I'm also fond of 70's, 80's. and 90's music. I usually listen to these via SiriusXM or Pandora. I have a soft spot for the electric slide. I do enjoy holiday music and Christmas carols but only during that time of year.

Favorite Movies

I enjoy action adventure, sci fi, and comedies. I watch a lot of documentaries. I do not tend to watch the same movies over and over.

Favorite Television

I've been watching a lot of docuseries, competition shows that let you observe human behavior, and baseball.

Favorite Crafts

Sewing, baking, and fabric painting (although it's been a long time). I occasionally branch out into other things that involve paper and glue such as making envelopes.

I am not interested in receiving ATC's or batik fabrics. No shade, they're just not my thing.
