About Me


If you haven’t received a rating from me I have either not received your swap or need a gentle reminder.

I have been a member of Swap-bot since March of 2007

A note about extras and hearts

I give hearts for the actual swap and not for extras. If the swap puts a smile on my face, you will receive a heart. I am very generous with hearts. If it’s obvious you put effort into the swap, even if it’s not my style, you get a heart. Ü I always rate fairly and always leave a comment. I do not send extras unless it's something I know you will really love. I hope you will rate my swaps the same.

November 26, 2019 My 23 year old daughter was in a devastating car accident and did not survive. I will not be joining any swaps for awhile. If you have not received something from me, please let me know and I will make it right. Thank you for your understanding. ~Syndee

Hi my name is Syndee (sounds like Cindy) and I live in the High Desert of Southern California, about 3 hours south of Las Vegas, NV, 3 hours north of SanDiego and 2.5 hours east of Los Angeles. I live at the northern base of the San Bernardino mountain range as well; just a short 20 minute drive to the mountain village.

I am a born again Christian who loves the Lord and I strive to live for Him the best that I can by His grace!!

I'm a mother of 3 daughters ages 30, 27 and my forever 23 year old, a wife of 34+ years and April 2020 a first time grandma to a precious grandson. I still call my girls baby when I talk to them and they know they will always be my babies!

I work with special needs kids as a teacher's aid. I love it! These kids are amazing. As a second part time job, I'm overseer of the nursery at our church. My heart is for the babies!! In the past I’ve also worked with many different elderly clients. They have all been so precious to me and I miss them all so much. I look forward to meeting and working with others soon. Ü

Favorite Books

My all time favorite book is "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" My second favorites would have to be the “Anne of Green Gables” series.

When I have time to read, I enjoy a lot of different types of books. However, I don't much care for books that have graphic sex or foul language in them. I’m not a fan of sci-fi either.

Updated 6/10/15

With my busy schedule I've become quite addicted to audible.com. I am able to listen to so many more books than I would have time to read! Some books I've recently loved are:

What Happened To You by Dr Bruce Perry and Oprah Winfrey This is an amazing book and I’m recommending it to everyone I talk to! 8/26/21

Sara's Key

The Secret Keeper

The Night Circus-loooooved this one!!

The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry

Water for Elephants

The Girl on the Train

Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine

Before We Were Yours

6/21-I just finished Kate Morton’s “The Clock Maker’s Daughter”. Very good!


I love scrapbooking supplies, paper, cupcake themed items, hearts, the color PINK, gingerbread men, fibers, buttons, coffee, my chemex, ribbon,vintage sewing notions, antique mason jars, 1940's kitchen (especially the green of that era) stuff, vintage kitchen gadgets with green handles, adhesives (I'm an adhesive junkie!), sugar free chocolate, beads, baskets, bows, handmade cards, prima flowers, sunflowers, Gerber daisies (especially pink), just about anything PINK. Tried and loved low carb recipes I love candles or wax melts that have fruity or home cooked scents such as Pumpkin spice, Butter Cookies etc. My second favorite color is yellow.

I’ve participated in a round of the Frankendeck playing card swap and somehow missed the Ace and 2 of clubs. I’d love to swap or if you just have a spare and feel like adding it, I’d love that!

Favorite Crafts

Some of my favorite crafts are:

Cake Decorating (Don’t have time for this one anymore) Check out my portfolio on my Flickr link above.

Card making

Junk journals (new found love summer 2019)

Pocket Letters (don’t really swap these much anymore)

Baking ( I LOVE to bake!!)

Making mini scrapbook albums

Making ATCs

Book altering

Index cards

Altered playing cards

Altering just about anything



Collecting craft supplies (can you relate? Ü)

tatting (haven’t mastered this but my desire is there)

I really love learning new techniques and new crafts. I'm always surfing the internet looking for new ideas and new things to try.


I dislike:

Swappers that don’t rate or those who are stingy with hearts


People who only do the bare minimum

The color blue is not my favorite


Pagan or Wiccan items

Vampires (They creep me out most of all)


Anything with a dark, or horror theme

I am allergic to strong floral scents so please keep that in mind when putting together a swap for me.

Favorite Television

I Love Lucy


Andy Griffith

Mary Tyler Moore

Dick Van Dyke

Amazing Race


Various Food Network shows

Master Chef

Hell's Kitchen

The Next Food Network Star

I was just sorting stuff in my craft room. I ran across your letter when you sent the clock faces from YTPC group. Then I clicked on your flickr account. You make some awesome cakes. Take care.

Thank you SO MUCH for your kindest RAK and those lovely vintage cards! They went right into my Franken Deck I’ll use for divination! :)

Thank you so much for the Kindle book for my wish in the Wishlist group! =) Got to love that super fast delivery for wishes!

mejulia on Jun 13, 2014:

The wonderful package for my June wish list came today. Thank you so much, I enjoy everything. You are so thoughtful. I lived in Palmdale though would love to live in your area. I love collecting gingerbread people and would love to exchange stuff with you. I don't have any cupcake stuff but I can look for it. As for giraffe stuff, I don't collect it. I am a chemo angel for a person who likes giraffes so I enjoy finding small, easy to mail giraffe stuff. The card you sent is perfect. I would be happy to exchange for other small mailable notes or items. Thank you again for the great wish list package.

WTA # 32 gift arrived today. I was delighted to see what was inside. You made such excellent choices but far to many. I do love them all and will use them with fond loving memories of sweet you. God Bless, and TYVM, Nancy
