Favorite Crafts

I love crafting! My main focus is on scrapbooking and cardmaking. I also like to sew, quilt and try new types of crafts.

I am a very orderly person, I prefer organized, matched, uniform type crafts. Although sometimes I do like to do the more random items.

I have been scrapbooking for almost 15 years now and enjoy trying and learning new things. I have a Cricut which I love. I also love stickles, and rub-ons. K & Company is my fav. brand.

About Me

I am first and foremost a born again Christian. I love worshiping, serving, and walking with my Savior, Jesus Christ. I am a wife of almost seven years to a wonderful husband. His work ethic and love allow me to be a stay at home mommy to our two year old son, Matthew. I love my two guys very much! I also have two puppies- a chihuahua, Fenway, and a dachsund, Strudel.

I love being a homemaker, although it is a very tireing job. I enjoy cooking, participating in church activites and playgroups, hanging out with my crafting friends, and obviously crafting. I also enjoy participating in swaps.

I try to ALWAYS send out my swaps on time. I will rate, and in return, I would appreciate ratings (esp. until I get several swaps under my belt.

Favorite Books

Reading is another passion of mine, although I am not the typical book lover. I can go weeks without reading but then go through a period of time where reading is a huge priority. If I like a book after its first few chapters, I read it nonstop until I am done. If I don't like it, I can't finish it.

My favorite fictional writer is Francine Rivers. I love all types of writers from Grisham to Stephen King to Jane Austin. Depending on my mood will determine what type of book I seek out.

~cheap stickers and paper ~Flakers ~Creative Memories stuff ~Almond Joy ~Flakers ~Food flavored candles ~Flakers ~Hello Kitty or other "cutesy" things I haven't specified -Candy or items from Holidays that have passed. ~ATCs that have scribble on them.

anorangegal rated for Valentine's Day Goodie Bag on Mar 1, 2010
Comment: March 1, 2010 7:05pm I never received the swap listed. I was told she'd resend a package 3 weeks later.. Can you even find Valentine's goodies 3 plus weeks later that isn't already stale and gross? I only listed one "demand" as she says, of no candy or sugar products cause I've given it up for Catholic lent and would have to throw it out anyways. I also stated that a pre Easter package wouldn't work since I'm doing Easter packages already, but if she wanted to take a look at my profile and send a package off of that I'd be happy with it.. I didn't threaten her, but just said if I didn't hear from her then I'd assume that she wanted to keep the 1 rating. I've been around swap-bot for years and I know how it works that sometimes you get flaked on. I take that risk. An once again I'm flaked on by someone who says clearly in her profile that she doesn't like FLAKERS. Please do not tarnish my name cause I never received your package. March 1, 2010 8:00pm Are you trying to allude after your package wasn't received that I may have received it and am just throwing this out for my health? You contacted me first on Feb. 8 ((two days after the package was supposed to be sent out)) that you were going to be late. So right there you were already breaking the swap requirements. I gave you the full week plus another cause you asked for it. So it was actually 18 days. 3 days short of 3 weeks. I am an adult with a full life. I do not have to tell you my life story or that I'm a Catholic that participates in LENT. I said if you wanted to take things from my profile and put together a package and have it sent to me then it be fine, but I wasn't eating candy or any sugar period so please not to add any form of sugar product.. no LIST there. Just ONE. I'm sure your not a flaker, but you now got a semi title since your package wasn't received. OH and if you want you can LOOK at my profile and see what packages I've received and sent out and oh FLAKED on. I am not going to continue this 'discussion' for I am not a child and I'm the one that loses out not Megan Bean.
Response: Was contacted initially less than a week after swap was due to be sent out. This member was extremely coarse in her tone and already assumed that I "flaked". I explained that I had in fact sent out my package, and listed what I sent. I then OFFERED to send out not only another package of her choice (V Day, St. Pattys Day, or Easter) along with Profile goodies. EACH PM I recieved was really rude and this member did/does not appear to give any benefit of the doubt. Seeing that now it is only TWO WEEKS past V-Day, her statement about the 3 weeks is incorrect. She did not mention anything about lint- only a LIST of things she would not accept. She never ONCE said she would "be happy" to accept profile goodies. I have several hearts and several swappers appreciate my packages. To have a member that is this unreasonable is very frustrating. And of course there is nothing that can be done now. I am just wondering how many other packages she "hasen't recieved" (less than a week after due date). I def. sent out this package! I also talked to this member thru PMs. I volunteered to not only resend, but to also send out profile goodies. I recieved a threatening PM with a list of things she would accept or would not accept. I am sorry. I think she is being completely unreasonable and she is the type of member who takes the fun out of swaps! I will not let her bully or threaten me. I will take this one and keep my dignity. I think it is extremely wrong when members of swap bot start listing demands and threats.

Hi, I have been away from swapbot for a good while. I approved your request for membership into Praying Christians. If you would like to be an officer to host swaps, please let me know. Your profile encouraged me greatly. I am inviting you to the Prayers Lifted group also, which is open to everyone on swapbot.

StephanieFromTN on Jan 30, 2010:

Hey there :) I think I sent a message but I'm not 100% sure! I have a letter ready to send your way but I lost your address! So if you could send it to me in a PM that would be awesome! Or maybe we could set up a private swap for our penpal letters if you want :)

Hope to hear from you soon! Stephanie

WonderMama on Jan 13, 2010:

Yeah! I'm glad you liked them. I think those are from Making Memories :) Enjoy!

Hi! Just wondering if you received my Ribbons & Buttons swap as I sent it two weeks ago. If you haven't received it yet please let me know and I can resend. Thanks!

LadyStephanie on Nov 28, 2009:

Welcome to swap-bot! If you like Jane Austin, pretty things, hand-written letters and sewing...you might want to check out the Another Time, Another Place group. If you have any swappy questions, I hang out in the chat room around 10:00 a.m. most days. Happy Swapping!
