About Me

UPDATE: I have everything except the cookie swap resent as of Thursday. I will be getting the cookie swaps in the mail this week. I am sorry it has taken so long, but it was kind of hard to re-purchase everything that was taken all at once!

Hi, I am so excited to join Swap-bot! I have heard from others that it is a great community and I am ready to start swapping!

I am a single mom of a 4 year old boy and also a full time Elementary Education student. I spend most of my time trying to find economical ways to entertain my son.

Morgan loves Dinosaurs. ANYTHING Dinosaur! He also likes Hotwheels and marbles.

Favorite Books

I love to read Science fiction! I like Battlestar Galatica, Stargate, Star Wars, Twilight, Wicked, anything like this.

My son Loves dinosaur books, land before time, anything educational. He loves to learn new words. We have been reading chapter books at bed time too. We have read the classics like Charlotte's Web, and are open to anything like that you might want to send. I am running out of ideas for bed time books!!!

I also do a lot of crafts so and how to books of knitting, sewing, felting, quilting, or anything like that I would love.

Favorite Movies

I like Scifi movies, anything that was a comic book turned into a movie. Action movies are great too.

My son likes Land before time, anything dinosaur related! Or educational, he doesn't watch many shows that do not teach you something good. I have been looking for the Jurassic Park movies, and Milo and Ottis and haven't been able to find them.

Favorite Television

I watch everything. Really EVERYTHING. CSI, Sarah Conner, Heros, American Idol, Big Brother, Mentalist, NCIS, Kings, Top Chef, Hell's Kitchen, Lost, ER, Grey's Anotomy, Private Practice, Survivor, and some more I am sure I forgot! Tivo is the best invention ever!

Favorite Crafts

I Knit. I love tiny double pointed needles best. I knit in the round most of the time so circular needles are great too. I have a hard time finding them with a short cord on them. I also love to get new pattern too! As far as yarn goes anything you get at a yarn store is great! I love both sock weight and bulky yarns. Cotton and Wool are both great but I am happy with blends too, just nothing cheap please!

I would love to start felting, but haven't gotten any supplies yet. I had thought I might start with one of the inexpensive kits to try it out but haven't gotten around to getting one yet.

I sew retro looking aprons, hand bags and shirts, I love 40's and 50's inspired fabric and patterns. I also made my first quilt over spring break out of Amy Butler fabric (I love her fabric and patterns too!)

Morgan and I love to do crafts together too. So anything kid friendly is good too.

I love to get handmade items from others. I usually don't keep anything I make so it's great to get something made for me!


I love bright colors! Pinks, Purples and Greens are my favorite, but I also like Orange, Yellow and blues too. I also like natural colors, I guess I am saying that you can't really go wrong on color, well unless it's like baby poop green or something LOL!

Morgan's favorite color is Orange.


I like tea, green tea is my favorite. I like Chocolate, mint, dried fruit and hard candy too.

Morgan loves gummy animal candy and Reese's Peanut butter cups.

Holiday and other stuff

We have a Easter tree, we use it year round and decorate for every holiday you can think of. We are always looking for new things to put on it. Especially for holidays like St. Patrick's day and the forth of July that don't have many decoration sold for them. We also like anything else that can be hung up or sat out on a table. We are holiday people!

Other things I like are Garden gnomes, mushrooms, poppies, orange scented bath items, frogs, cute bugs, anythings retro looking, ....hmm that's all I can think of right now!


We don't need ATCs, stickers, dolls, glitter, cheap things like toys or stuff that is just going to break and be thrown away (no led painted toys from china please!) . Perfumey anything.


SCARVES!!! Any color! I wear them with about everything and I like really long and short ones too. I wear the short ones in my hair!

Vintage shirts. I love odd t-shirts. I usually wear a large in ladies clothes.

Morgan likes ties. He picked one out at the mall and has been wearing it with everything, even his pj's for weeks now. He could use another one! He also like things made from cotton. He has allergies and we have a hard time finding good pajamas and shirts made of all cotton.

Morgan wears a size 5T in toddlers or 4/5 XS in boys clothes.

I am not sure what else to add. If you have any questions about me or my son please send me a message! Happy Swapping!

Comment: Thank you for re-sending after the original parcel has been stolen from your doorsteps before Mr. Postman could get and send it. Love it. Yours, Karen
fakefrownz rated for themed swap on Jun 24, 2009
Comment: Has been over a month since send by date. My PM was read and ignored. Will change if I receive anything. Very sad, as I was really looking forward to receiving this swap. update: June23 - received swap. it was very nice, would def. have given a 5+heart if I had had some communication? Things happen, it's not a problem if a swap will be late as long as your partner is informed. If you had just replied to my PM saying it would be late insteading of ignoring them... :(

Comment: Originally, I rated a 1 for this swap because it took over a month to get it. I'm changing the rating to a 5 now that I received the swap in today's mail. The envelope had Postage Due on it, but the mailman delivered it anyway without charging me, so it wasn't a problem. The stitch markers are beyond cute (there were seven instead of the six required) and I'm pretty sure at least two of them are going to wind up as earrings, they're that cute. Thanks very much.

Comment: Update: July 6th nothing has been received.....Marked mailed June 6th was due out by June 1st, today is the 19th, nothing has been received, if I receive I'll change my rating = (
Comment: UPDATE: Received the original package today, June 18. Thank you for making sure I received it and thank you for everything you sent. Tana I received a notice the first of May from the PO with $1.20 postage due for this package. It was at the PO across town whose hours are the same as my work hours. I contacted Amy and let her know. She said she was sorry. By the time I made it to the PO, May 13, they told me they had returned it. I notified Amy and she said she would resend when she received it. That was almost a month ago, and sorry to say I have not heard another word. My PM has gone unanswered. I will change this rating should I receive anything. :(
Comment: Thanks so much for your re-sending. Don't know if I somehow deleted! Really enjoyed learning about you.
Comment: Thank you so much for your answers! ♥
Comment: Thanks a bunch!!1
