About Me

Wife and mother of 3 living on Long Island NY.

I love doing anything creative and keep trying to learn new things. Crafting is my therapy. I love to create and gift things that I have made (as long as the person appreciates it). I think that anything handmade is more precious than store bought items.

I always follow through and dislike when others don't. I always try to go out of my way for people because that's just what I do. I sometimes forget that other people are not this way, that sucks, but hey it's life.

I will always rate. If you did not receive a rating from me it's most likely because I did not receive your swap.

If you did not receive a swap from me, please contact me before leaving a negative rating. I will always send my swaps out and in the event of any delay I will always contact you.

Likes & Wishes

  • Scrap booking - I used to be a Creative Memories consultant years ago so most of my supplies are from them. I also was a consultant for Stampin Up. I am currently working on scrapping my first cruise and trying to make some mini albums from the great videos I see online.

  • Crochet - I learned the basics from my great aunt years ago. I have been trying to pick up some new techniques but time hasn't been available. I love all handmade items.

  • Chocolate molds - I love making chocolate lollipops and other chocolate covered treats. Yum!

  • Candy & Chocolate that I can't get in US such as the Cadbury you would get overseas. Marzipan. Brach's milk maid royals.

  • Animals - I love all animals although as the years go on I become more allergic to them. I have a white deaf pit bull named Lilith who just turned 1 (never knew white animals were known to be deaf), and a cat Tinkerbelle. In the past I have also had a rabbit named Thumper, hamsters, fish and an iguana.

  • Beaches - I love going to the beach, walking along On the water, laying out relaxing, swimming. When I'm at the beach I always collect rocks and shells although I don't really do much with them afterward besides keep them around for the memory of the day. Although I do like collecting them myself, I would not like to receive them as a swap.

  • Traveling - being that I work in the travel industry I get great benefits that allow me to travel. Places I have been are California, Florida (Miami, Ft Myers Beach, Orlando), Ireland, Tulum Mexico, Italy (for a day), Austria, Aruba, DR - Punta Cana, Puerto Rico, Bahamas on cruise, Las Vegas, Boston, Iceland. I would see the world if I could.

  • Scrapbooking - love to scrapbook my vacations and include daily journal entries so anything that helps me do that is great (paper, cards, etc). - Love scrapbooking Christmas. This is the one holiday that I try to scrapbook every year so I can see how everyone I know has changed and grown. I always keep the cards I receive, especially picture cards, and include them in my scrapbooks.

  • Cooking - love preparing meals and entertaining friends and family. I'm a picky eater so I don't always eat everything that I cook but love watching others enjoy what I have prepared.

  • Shows - Homeland, Bates Motel, Damien, How to get away with murder, Penny Dreadful. Loved watching House, True Blood, Six Feet Under but they are not showing those episodes anymore. I Love Lucy I could watch all day!

  • Movies - Princess Bride, Annie (the original), Wizard of Oz (original), Alice in wonderland (original). These were always my favorites since childhood. Finding Nemo, Megamind, the Incredibles (for the past 13 years since I have children - lol). Bridesmaid, Liar Liar, anything with Adam Sandler, anything with Will Ferrell, chick flicks / drama / mushy love story tear jerkers such as The Story of Us. Love lifetime movies. The Longest Ride.

  • Favorite colors - black, purple, navy, anything dark.

  • Music - love it all. I don't think there is a genre that I haven't listened to. Some artists include The Beatles, Breaking Benjamin, Christina Perri, The Cranberries, Disturbed, Ed Sheeran, Eminem, Evanescence, James Blunt, Mumford & Sons, System of a Down, Andrea Bocelli, The Band Perry (If I Die Young), Freestyle, Keith Urban

  • Helping others - I love getting involved with the community. I have been a Girl Scout leader since my daughter was old enough to become a Daisy (over 6 years) and I love it. It keeps me busy and its another thing to add on my plate, but I just can't leave my girls and love knowing that I'm making a difference in someone's life. Or at lease hope I am. I plan to take small steps down from leading the troop so I can focus more on family.

  • Photography. I take so many pictures all the time and prefer to print them instead of keeping them digital. I'm terrified that all these digital photos I have will be lost so I make copies and backup and prints of most. In a way I miss the old fashion negative!

  • Tastefully Simple. I was a TS consultant for a few years on and off. This company is great. Quick and easy meal solutions. All the products they sell are either open and enjoy or require at most 3-4 added ingredients. I'm not a consultant currently, but I'm sure I'll sign up again eventually, I always do when I run out of product. Problem is I'm my best customer.

  • Learning new things, especially crafting related.

  • Amigurumi. I tried but cannot make these on my own. :(
  • bubble wrap / mailing material

  6. Private swap between Rosina176 and proudmama. This swap really has me upset. We both were to send one awesome handmade item, and add a minimum of $10 in profile goodies. I sent over $10 and made her a handmade album decorated with Smurfs since she had memories relating to them. She claimed she never received it and she never sent me any swap in return. She hasn’t replied and hasn’t been on Swap-bot for some time now. Shame on you @proudmama

Others I know were flaked by the following people:
