About Me

Just a note: I'd like to point out my my '1' ratings, but I would also like to point out that they are very dated (over a year and a half old). I stopped using the site after I received 1's or no ratings at all for items I took great care in sending. I really miss swapping, especially ATC's and postcards, and would love to give it another try. Your trust and extra consideration in letting me join swaps to 'mend' my status is so greatly appreciated!

I'm Emily. :) I'm 26. I come from a town where the largest buildings around are the churches, and I love that. I am a preschool teacher, so my days are never boring. I recently became engaged to my prince, and we plan to be married in October 2012. I love Glee, Selena, and The Beatles. I love spending time with my fiance, family, friends, and my pets! I am a huge animal lover; I have 3 pets: Willy, an orange tiger cat, and Pokey, a black and white tuxedo cat, and Diego the Dog, a black lab mix. All three are handsome and loving.

I love to sing, and watch movies. I collect keepsake ornaments, kitchen gadgets, dvds, and so on. I spend a lot of time dreaming about my future. I love interior decorating!

I joined swap-bot after becoming familiar with Postcrossing. I have done quite a few ATC's, but am here mainly for postcards of all varieties.

Things I Like...

Whenever I am sending a swap, I do my best to look at my partner's profile and see how I can best match their likes and incorporate it into what I send. So, I thought for the benefit of my senders and myself, I'd add a list that's easy to scan!

  • I LOVE all things BRIGHT and COLORFUL. My favorites are color is PURPLE!!!
  • Like many, I adore vintage cards. They're the best! Especially if they are authentically "old".
  • Weddings
  • Matryoshkas/Nesting Dolls
  • Musical Theater/Broadway
  • Coca Cola
  • The Beatles, as a group and individually
  • Selena
  • Animals, especially cats.
  • Churches & Cathedrals
  • Sign Language
  • The Autumn season
  • Anything to do with Paris, France or New York City
  • Statues
  • Cemeteries
  • Many classic actors and actresses, particularly Audrey Hepburn, Jean Harlow, Jean Arthur, James Dean, Boris Karloff.
  • Paisley
  • Shabby chic
  • Peanuts characters
  • Hydrangeas, roses, Gerber daisies, lilacs, and poppies

...If you are sending a postcard or the like, and speak anything other than English, I would love for you to tell me how to say/write "I love you" in your language! :)

Favorite Music

The Beatles, The cast of Glee, Feist, Selena, Regina Spektor, Taylor Swift, She & Him, Iron & Wine, The Smiths, The Anniversary, The Get Up Kids, Jens Lekman, Ella Fitzgerald, Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman... too many to name, really. A lot...from most all genres, except screaming "rock" and violent rap.

My very favorite = tie between Breakfast at Tiffany's and Disney's Cinderella. Also: 13 Going on 30, Away We Go, Love Actually, Jack the Bear. ANYTHING by M.

Flaker Alert =/

User SIM8827 - never received swap items for 090909 PC Swap; ignored private messages from me.

User NATALICH - never received swap items for 090909 PC Swap; ignored private messages from me.

User HONEYBONO - never received rating for 100 Inchies Project Colour Theme; ignored private messages from me.

User CRISPY - never received rating for Pressed Penny Swap; ignored private messages from me.

Like most, I had really hoped I wouldn't have to add a section like this to my profile. Le sigh. I was really slow to do this, thinking that eventually mail or a rating would appear. I will never add someone to this list prematurely - anyone listed here has neglected their duty for a long time, and ignored my attempts to contact them. I get that life happens, and am always patient. So here lies my list of users that have screwed me over. Of course, if any of them attempts to mend the situation I will be happy to take a name off this list!!

moravanka93 rated for City View Postcard Swap on Nov 21, 2009
Comment: Again, rating 1 to clean out "sents" that I haven't received. Will be glad to change once a resend comes.
Response: I'm sorry - last I knew of, we were doing your idea, a private exchange, and I was waiting on a card from you to me, to "check" the route. I haven't received anything, but I'll just send a card Monday morning to try to rid myself of this 1. I hope that'll help... :(
moravanka93 rated for Autumn ATC on Nov 21, 2009
Comment: Emily, I am rating you 1 to clean out my "sent' swaps that I haven't received. I will be glad to change it, if either resend comes.
papercaper rated for Quotecard Postcard #29 on Nov 20, 2009
Comment: This late rating is embarrassing, especially because I absolutely adore the Waterhouse painting on your postcard. It's reignited an interested in his artwork, in fact. :) He really was exceptional, wasn't he? All the detail that reads true... I love the quote too. I've never been able to get into Tori Amos, but I think the line you quoted was magnificent. I've held gold dust in my hands too. Didn't always know what it was either... *sigh* Thank you so much. P.S. I love your handwriting and the coloured textas/markers. ;)
Comment: I loved your dreary camping postcard replete with the mosquito full of schadenfreude (or at least glee!) on the back. We've been wanting to go camping but your PC put me off a bit, heh-heh! I also really loved the US letter stickers you used. (Sorry for the late rating!)
BookGirl rated for - Black & White Postcard swap #2 - on Nov 20, 2009
Comment: Thanks! I love the card.
GTstamper rated for Grocery Box PC Swap #5 on Nov 18, 2009
Comment: Hi Emily! Thank you for the postcard and congrats on your pie! You chose good brand too... that crust tastes just as good as spending 2 hours making it from scratch. :-) Take care, GT

Hi Emily, I still haven't received my Wind ATC as of yet. I even emailed you and you said u would send it. Will change rating when I receive it off you. Samantha

I have not yet received a rating for Cemetery Swap that ended Nov. 21, 2009. I sent my pictures right away after the partners were assigned.
If you would like me to send them to you again, just let me know. I could also send them to you by email. Can you even rate now that your account has been suspended?

fairymagicmail on Oct 28, 2009:

I'm so glad you liked the CD! Thank you for the rave review, too. Being a newbie is kind of tough and your thoughtful feedback will enable me to do more wonderful swaps. Thank you! ♥

ladydy5 on Oct 21, 2009:

Cute picture.

fairymagicmail on Oct 20, 2009:

Hi Emily, I just read over your page and will be sending you a CD of beautiful music in the next couple of days. Your dislike about when "onion" is pronounced as "ung-yin" made me laugh. So true!
