Would anyone be interested in a private Christmas swap? I joined @CraftyMommaOnABudget s 12 Days of Christmas swaps. I had to drop from Days 9 thru 12 when my family got sick so would love to finish these so I have them all for Christmas.
Not aware of these swaps? Here is a link to them. I would love for someone or more than one someone to PM me if interested.
Update: 9/12/21: Our family has tested positive for Covid Delta and we are quarantined until September 30. I will not be able send out assigned swaps until after that or go to the post office to pick up mail. So I will be late rating everything this month. Thank you for your patience and your understanding.
promise I will rate you when I get your mail. If I've not rated you then I've not got your mail yet. Please don't send me "reminders" that I need to rate you. They aggravate me. I know how swap-bot works. Sorry, that is my only bit of grouch. I promise. :)
UPDATE 10/28/2019: My post lady Norma showed me this notice today when I picked up my mail. This may explain why mail is running so slow. Everyone just needs to be patient and understanding with each other. I RARELY if EVER mark a person a 3 for late mail. This place is supposed to be fun. As long as I get the swap I'm fine with it. I do like a heads up from my partner if you are mailing late but I'm always fine with it. No worries! I believe that the 3 rating should only be if someone totally ignored the swap rules, like you were supposed to mail 3 things and they only mailed 1 crusty piece of something. Other that, sheesh, give it a break and just have fun. It's mail folks, not life or death.
I initially joined Swap-bot for the craft swapping but lately I've been in a creative funk. I don't know if my muse has gone on vacation or the crafty well has run dry but regardless I've not been doing much crafting swaps lately.
Some of my favorite swaps are:
Playing Card Swaps
I also like to participate in a lot of letter writing swaps like Long Letter, 10 Page letter and etc.
I also love recipe exchange type swaps and join these quite often. This goes along with my love of cooking.
Some of my favorite crafty things I love to do are:
Greeting Card Making
Swap-Bot Card Making
Interactive Mini Albums
Faux Stain Glass
(I'll Add more as I think of it)
If you are wondering on what kind of things I love getting I am going to try and keep a list here that I can update from time to time. These things may change so be sure to stop back from time to time if you are partnered with me. HAHAHAHA
Right now the favorite things on my wishlist are:
Washi Tape Samples
List Pad Paper
Mini blank journals
Pens and Markers Any Type
Stickers ( I love stickers but I never have enough to swap)
Address Labels (that you've made for me)
Swap-bot Swap Cards
I love real stamps on letters in place of metered mail if able.
Floral scented anything.
Musk or sandalwood based anything (allergic)
Ephemera (unless swap says to)
No horror related please.
Green Tea gives me headaches.
I decided to incorporate the Favorite Books, Music and Movie section all under one heading to save myself a category.
I honestly don't listen to a lot of music. Usually only when I'm driving in the car. Then the station is tuned to the local country station just because it is the station that comes in clearest. I actually cancelled my Sirius XM subscription because we didn't utilize it enough. I don't even have a radio in the house. hahahaha All my CDs are in storage and I only have two Adele Albums on my phone. That's about it.
Books: Books are my obsession. I listen to a lot of audiobooks. Thanks to the SEO Library Consortium which is the digital version of the library. I listen to about three or more books a week. In addition to that, I probably read 10 or more paper copy books per month.
My favorite genre of books is murder mystery and psychological thrillers. I really hate romance novels of any kind. They annoy me to no end. I really enjoy YA dystopian books. I only like sci-fi if it falls into the dystopian genre.
I really like when they combine mystery with cooking like in Joanne Fluke's Hannah Swensen's Murder Mysteries.
Some of my favorite authors are:
Nora Roberts aka JD Robb
I love love love love movies! I'd love nothing more then to watch movies all day long for a living...hahahhaa. Unfortunately, they just won't pay me to do what I love.
Some of my favorite movies are: Jurassic Park (All), The Transporter (Jason Statham!!), Harry Potter (All), Practical Magic, The Mummy I & II, Men in Black (All), Anything with Will Smith in it, Anything with John Cusack in it. I have a not so secret crush on John Cusack....hahahaha.
Another actor that gets my heart jumping is Dwayne THE ROCK Johnson.... Hmmm. I would go watch a movie of him just sitting in a chair for 90 mins. hahahaha
I do like Romantic Comedy movies but I usually only watch them once and then I'm done. I prefer action movies or movies with strong leading women who can kick butt like Lara Croft Tomb Raider.
One of my favorite actresses of all time is Sandra Bullock. She is amazing, she can play almost any role from a ditzy knucklehead to a butt-buster kick butt woman! I really hate sport type movies but I think she did a fabulous job in The Blind Side. I've watched it several times because it was so good.
Now onto other favorite movies: I adore old classic movies. Black and whites from the 30's, 40's and 50's. I love Cary Grant, Gene Kelley, Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers, Doris Day, Rock Hudson, Tony Randall, David Niven and many many more.
I wanted to add this section for swaps that included sending treats or snacks. I thought it much easier to list things here instead of having to give all the details over and over again for individual swaps.
Some of my favorite candies:
Tootie Rolls (original not fruity)
Twizzlers, strawberry or cherry only and NOT pull and peel or any version other than original.
I don't like solid chocolate bars or things like M&Ms
No Sour candy, Not a big hard candy person except for Rootbeer barrels and Horehound drops.
I'm a kid at heart and love gum. It's kind of hilarious how excited I get over a gumball machine. lol
I love getting different teas to taste. I really love fruity flavors. I don't like any form of mint tea though. PLEASE NO green tea. It gives me migraines. My FAVORITE tea is Twinings Australian Afternoon.
I don't like spicy anything. I love cheese doodle type things. Pass on BBQ unless it's the honey bbq. Don't like sour cream and onion or Salt and vinegar. Can't digest popcorn. White cheddar I have to be careful because a lot of companies use blue cheese as a base and I'm allergic to blue cheese. UM .. Maybe skip the savory snacks...LOL ... I'm a little picky.
Please skip. Once again I am very picky on cookies.
