About Me

I have sent out the swaps that were outstanding on my dashboard. The last package to get rid of my ones will be going out by the end of the week. If you are looking at my profile to see if I am swap worthy, please contact me regarding the status of any 1's you see as they should all be gone (if my partners rerate) by the end of July.

I have made a vow to live life to the fullest and experience all I can. I am a 40-something single mom of two grown children (my youngest is a sophmore in college). My career has been quite a curvy path and has led me to a position as an Emergency Services Dispatcher for the Niagara County Sherriff's Department. This has been a dream for a VERY long time!! I live in Western New York near Niagara Falls. I am always looking for an adventure and that gets me into some very interesting places lately ...

Favorite Music

I love country music but listen to a wide variety of kinds. Listen to everything from Elton John to Linkin Park. Always willing to check out something new ...

Favorite Books

James Patterson, either Kellerman, Janet Evanovich (Stephanie Plum) ... mystery suspense crime type stuff.

Food ...

I have to tell you ... I LOVE food. I am always looking to try something new BUT .. about a year ago I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease which means I am Gluten Intolerant. Gluten is wheat, oats, barley, and rye (and things made from these grains). This does not stop me from looking for new recipes that I can adapt to make safe and if I do come across something that I find is not Gluten Free ... I share with my friends and family.

Favorite Crafts

Now that I have been swapping for a while ... I have discovered I like:

  • knitting
  • crocheting
  • making earrings
  • Dotees
  • ATC's

Still going to try my hand at making cards and would like to dabble in stamping.


Swedish Fish candy, funky socks, books, magnets for my fridge, coloring books and crayons, the color purple,getting snail mail, pens of many colors, funny movies, fire trucks, motorcycles, cats, mice (not real ones), ladybugs, camping, fishing ...


Scary movies, dogs, reality TV shows, hunting, watching hockey or football or basketball, music that I can't understand the lyrics ....

Bucket List

  • Win a blue ribbon at the county fair ..
  • Sing the national anthem at a sporting event ..
  • Buy something at FAO Schwartz ..

  • Sky dive (just once) ..

Recipe Swaps

Thank you for looking at my profile for this. I have a recipe box that can accomodate up to 4x6 recipe cards so would prefer cards over sheets. I do have binder that I keep too so do not transfer to a card if it is not good for you. I also ask that you indicate on the recipe your SwapBot name so I know who I can ask questions of when I try it.

Please do not be afraid to send recipes that you do not consider Gluten Free as I am working on learning to adapt recipes to make them usable for me!!

Comment: This is the first time i'm rating a 1 ... I never expected to be flaked on in a private swap. But all my messages have been without reply, i even suggested helping you out, but never got any reaction whatsoever. I feel really bad about this swap; looking for that t-shirt for you and buying it and then never getting any response. I don't even know whether my package arrived safely. I will of course change this rating if you still let me know something ...

Comment: I'm sad that I received nothing -- not even a note saying you would be delayed or something came up so you couldn't do the swap.

Comment: This was my first major swap. No communication or responses to email or PMs. She is able to Twitter, but cannot send me a note that she is running behind? That's just not right.

Comment: **9 July 2009** I have been torn over how to rate you. I know life can become chaotic quickly, but you lack of communication has been a bit frustrating. You told me quite a few weeks ago you were getting the swap together and would have it sent. Still nothing. It really breaks my heart to rate a "ONE", but I really have no recourse. Should you send it out, I will rerate. Angelled by @dbowie. Thanks ever so much ***update 7/15/2010*** Why should I rate a five when it's a year late? I really admire someone who can bounce back and make good on obligations. Take cujones. Besides, I love the package & all its goodies - RED RED RED!!
Response: This will be in Tuesday's mail ... thank you so much for your patience!! I just don't want to send out a crappy package to get it done and out of the way!! **7/16/10** Thank you very much for rating this swap!! I would have never dreamed of not following through. So glad it made you happy.

Nice to see you back! Hope things are good. Sometimes life sucks... it's just a fact.

waldenpond2 on Sep 10, 2010:

Did you receive the newbie niceties swap that I sent you quite a while ago?! I have not been rated for that, yet, despite 2 reminder PMs, and I would like to take of care of it if it never got to you. Thanks...

midwestkiwi on Aug 11, 2010:

Well, if you ever log back in, you can delete this comment, or explain, but in the meantime, my PMs have gone unanswered and you've apparently flaked on the first swap I ever hosted. :(

queenelisheba on Aug 10, 2010:

Hi Jen! Hope you are doing ok. Haven't seen you around and wanted to let you know someone is missing you :D Hope you are ok and treading water...

VivaLaDiane on Aug 7, 2010:

I would like you all to know that @ChuckInNy is not a flaker. Life happens. Sometimes it's completely unfair multiple times. I understand someone's responsibility, but I understand shit happens as well.

@Chuck I hope all is well. If I can help you in anyway; please let me know. I love ya tons.

DarbyFlats on Aug 7, 2010:

Due to not answer messages and new negative ratings, I have removed you from the Newbie Niceties group. It's has also come to my attention that you have not provided any ratings for the Newbie Niceties swap, including mine. Please contact someone and let them know if you plan on fixing this.

MysticBayou on Aug 3, 2010:

Hi I received the Halloween paper for the Profile Surprise in Newbie Niceties! Thank you. Your Random Envie is on the way!

Dogluvr on Jul 23, 2010:

Hi there... I just wanted to stop in and say Hi! I'm back!
