About Me


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 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. Prime location if you ask me.

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, 26 and my forever 23 year old, a wife of 33+ years and April 2020 a first time grandma to a precious grandson. I work with special needs kids as a teacher's aid. I love it! These kids are amazing. I love the hearts of these children. As a second part time job, I'm overseer of the nursery at our church. My heart is for the babies!! I seem to be in there more than in the service!

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 Christian romance, and mysteries. I don't much care for books that have graphic sex or foul language in them.

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:

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

I am currently listening to: Uniquely Human I am anxiously awaiting the new Grisham novel and the new Kate Morton novel.


I love scrapbooking supplies, paper, cupcake themed items, clear stamps, stamp pads, hearts, **the color PINK, gingerbread men, popcorn, flavored ground coffees, fibers, buttons, ribbon,vintage sewing notions, antique mason jars, 1940's kitchen (especially the green of that era) stuff, 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. I love candles that have fruity or home cooked scents such as Pumpkin spice, Butter Cookies etc.

Favorite Crafts

Some of my favorite crafts are:

Cake Decorating (Don’t have time for this one anymore)

Card making

Junk journals (new found love summer 2019)

Pocket Letters

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


The color blue

Rude people


Moochers and

Gossip hounds

Nasty pictures

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

Comment: Hi Syndee and thank so much for the amazing journal cards! I really like all three of them - the background paper you used is great - do you remember who made it? And I love all the botanical embellishments as well as the gorgeous yellow butterfly. These are going into my junk journal. And thank you for the fun vintage ephemera - I have added it to my stash and know it will be used!!
Response: Oh I’m so glad you liked them!! For the life of me I can’t remember what they look like and I don’t think I took a picture. Most of my digitals are Calico Collage, Artymaze and My porch prints. If you email me a picture I can tell you exactly which one it is.

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
