I like to host postcard swaps and other swaps. You can find all my swaps right here in my profile. I would like to draw your attention to the WINTER IN JULY postcard swap. I hope we get lots of players. I will also be doing a book swap and card swap with the same theme. Look for them in June.
I am so sick of my profile so I am editing as of April 27,2013. I just joined a few swaps that might benefit from this abbreviated info. I will update later.
(1.) Married 25 years
(2). 8 kids cause we were foster parents
(3.) I run a food bank on Saturdays
(4.) I am the leader of my TOPS taking off pounds sensibly group
(5.) I could use more sunflower kitchen towels
(6.) I like to do up cycle things.
(7.) I do like Stuff with Bible verses and crosses, etc but dont care for Catholic Saints or Jesus on the cross pendants
(8.) Dont mail anything that will melt since it is already 100 degrees here so that includes lip balm and candles right now.
(9.) I dont need bookmarks, I just lose them.
(10.) Can you help me find some older stamps that are unused? I just love it when I get swaps with the older stamps.
FOR THE POSTCARD swaps
If you are sending me a postcard, I love sunflowers, cats, maps of your area (see list of NEEDS) , flowers of any kind, castles, inside of old churches esp churches with arches, cathedrals, Roman ruins, fountains, waterfalls, sunsets, Night skylines. I have found I love windmills, and rainbows. 3/13/13 I also love turtles,large tortoises, and esp the Sea turtles that are symbolic of Hawaii. Real turtles or the symbols are welcomed.
I like most animals, but esp like Cats, Manatees, kangaroos, elephants, penguins are all so cute, DOGs esp AU shepherds, dachshunds, and Bassett hounds. Postcards from zoos are nice. Butterflies, Bees, dragonflies, ladybugs.
I also like postcards where obvioulsy the cars are older like the 50s to the 70s. I get a kick out of the dated touristy cards.
I also get a kick out of those quirky AD postcards, but will join swap just for those. Most swaps ban ad card.
I am collecting map cards updated Jan 24, 20I3
I NEED Map cards from , CT >ME >NV >I LIKE MY MAPS STAMPED WITH A MESSAGE FROM YOU.
I would love it if you add a sticker to the postcard, use real stamp, stamp the PC with say a rubber stamp or dress up the postcard some. That always makes me smile, as does using older stamps or more than one stamp.
FOR ATC cards: I would HEART: Sunflowers, cats, John Cusack, Coffee, Lattes; cards with pages from books or maps, Altered Playing Cards, Dachshunds, butterflies, dragonflies, hummingbirds.
I dont like Dark themes, or pin up girls. Dont like Halloween, or Secular Easter bunnies or eggs, St Patricks day, any thing patriotic or about the 4th of July. But I do like FIREWORKS
ETA 1/14/13 I like the JOKERS from decks of cards, I also like playing cards with unique backs. I dont need an entire set, just a few from a set, Yes some of us collect these dumb things.
I like the cancelled postage stamps and esp like those with butterflies and sunflowers, hummingbirds
For the stuff envelope swap, I mainly make atc cards now, so smaller items that will fit on 3.5x2.5 area. vintage, faces, clocks, animals, silk or paper flowers,paper punches.
If you can make Address Labels, I would love that. My computer is a MAC, so when I make lables with Avery, I can only do like 2 different images. BORING! I do love coffee, esp flavored coffee, except irish cream. I do drink tea but have plenty of tea. I use a lot of chap stick, lip balm items, and lotions
Yep, I have allergies to most perfumes, but can tolerate food smells, like pumpkin, vanilla. Due to my skin being sensitive I tend to break out in a itchy rash with most perfumes and lotions. I am also allergic to walnuts, and mesquite trees So I cant eat smoked foods. I am also allergic to sheep ie wool. I can only eat sugar free candy and that stuff isnt good for your instestines. So I dont really eat treats, or sweets.
TEAS DISLIKES: I havent found a chai that I like. Jasmine is too perfumey for my tastes. Plain Mint tea isnt really a favorite either. Plain chamomile is so dull, but blends with camomile or mint blends are welcomed. Besides those listed above I like most other teas including loose teas in both decaf and reg and herbal blends. I like rooibos, chocolates, earl greys, I really like spicy teas, which I realize doesnt line up with my chai dislike.
For the Thrift store swap. Things I would look for and buy would include Corelle Sunsation/sunflower plates, all sizes, dinner plate to saucers and corelle bowls or saucers with a blue or green rim. no mugs I have too many mugs.
Sunflower throws, pillows or towels. Sunflower totebags. Sunflower flatware or untensils. Sunflower glassware. Sunflower salt and pepper shakers, Cute salt and pepper shakers. I also look for playing card, and postcards at the thrift stores.
NEW not used fun socks, New unburned candles in vanilla or baked goods scents only. Perfumy or flowers make me sneeze.
Small rubber stamps that will fit into an ATC space of 2.5 x 3.5. I dont use bigger stamps. Maybe some other craft items.
Things I would not like, clothes, shoes, perfume, purses, jewerly, all too personal of choices for a stranger to make.. I dont need any more sunflower Crocks or canisters.
I am not real fond of Holidays or Patriotic themes.
I esp dont like Halloween or Easter Bunnies or Easter Eggs.
I just love time travel movies, I find them awesome, Back to the Future, Peggy Sue got married, Premonition, Lake House, Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, and Butterfly Effect...
I like chick flicks, I avoid scary movies, because they give me nightmares; but I will watch anything John Cusack is in, even a rated R movie like Identity which still gives me the willies at night when I think about the ending.
I can read one book in one day or in a few hours. I can average 60 to 100 pages an hour.
I like mysteries, cozy mysteries esp if they are well done, Magical mysteries, time travel novels, I mostly like Women's fiction, quirky non fiction, or a good Memoir... I like some Christian fiction, but please have a plot, build some real characters or dont waste my time. I dont like the Christian Historical or amish books.
I like chic lit if the girls are not too insipid and slutty. I also like the 40 year old finding themselves after a crisis, kinda like HEN lit, but really just womens fiction. Tell me a good story, tell me a secret, give it a twist at the end. Show me true love not based on lust or throbbing in stupid places. Dont waste my time, life is too short to read subpar books. I also dont need blood, and gore, and unnec, graphic smut, and unnec. F bombs to find adult fiction enjoyable, but sure do love a good laugh, books that find that perfect blend between love and bedroom. I can tolerate paranormals that about time travel, people with the abilities to see ghosts, or talk to pets. Not into vampires, werewovles, demon hunters, shape shifters.
I have a whole wishlist over at both bookmooch and paperbackswap. I am azmom875 over there too. I do love craft books about quilting, scrapbooking, rubberstamps, or making atcs.
