Update 8/28/2018

Taking a bit of a break from SB. I'll still log in and pop onto the group forums. If any really awesome swaps show up that I want to join, I may dabble in one or two, but I need some time to de-stress.

Update 5/18/2018

We have been having a LOT of issues with mail in our area. Some swaps and RAKs I have been expecting have gone missing or are taking a LONG time to get to me. Same with outgoing swaps. Over the last month, I have had to re-send 3 swaps that never made it. I have been in to the PO to talk to the supervisor there and they can't give me an explanation. Please let me know if you don't receive a swap from me. I will resend it if it doesn't make it.

Hi, my name is Christina

I'm 37 years old. My birthday is August 25th. I am married to the love of my life Steve. We have been married since January 20, 2001. We've been together over 20 years. Our daughter Daliana was born July 5, 2008. We live in a city called Clermont, FL, which is near Orlando.

Unfortunately both of our kitties are no longer with us. On 2/14/17 we lost our first furbaby Augie (pictured below on the left). He was 17 years old. We lost our other furbaby Abby on 12/4/17 (pictured below on the right). She was 15 years old. Both of them have left footprints on our heart that will not fade.

Being a mom is one of the most exciting things that's ever happened to me. I look at my daughter every day and count my blessings for having her in my life.

I work at Walt Disney World here in Florida. It's a lot of fun getting to work where so many of my friends vacation. If you have any questions about Disney or need any tips or tricks, let me know!



I think green and I do like to reuse packaging, so please don't be surprised if you see an envelope or box that looks used.

I'm also pretty crafty and create my own envelopes at times out of various things (magazines, folders, etc).

This helps keep more junk out of landfills.


My favorite crafts are inchies, mini pocket letters, matchboxes, ATCs, handmade postcards, mail art, photo collages, making my own notecards, mini zines, sticker crafts, painting, making pet rocks, beading, weaving with loom kits, and plastic canvas art. I dabble a little bit in sewing, but I'm not really that good at it.

I really want to learn to crochet. I kind of sort of can do a single stitch basic crochet, but I want to be able to make something more than just a coaster or square towel lol.

I just made my first dotee doll for a sender's choice swap and it was SO much fun! I think I found a new fun crafty adventure!

I an an avid photographer (Nikon D3200) and spend most of my time taking photos in and around Walt Disney World. My specialty is fireworks.

I would love to get my hands on any items to help my crafty endeavors.

I love Pinterest and you can check out my crazy fun boards HERE


If for some reason you do not receive a swap or a tag from me, PLEASE send me a message and let me know! I know that things get lost in the mail and I send all of my swaps & tags out on time. Same thing if you ever get something with "Postage Due". I try to weigh all of my items accurately, but mistakes can happen.

I rate as soon as I receive a swap, and appreciate you doing the same for me.

Welcome to The Christian Heart and Home which swap-bot still calls The Christian Homestead. Please jump right in and join the fun!

freespirit66 on Mar 19, 2018:

My apologies for the late thank you for the February wish you granted to me through the Wishlist group. I had surgery and was recovering. Am home now and catching up on mail.

I am so excited to use the Que Bella face mask and Biore nose strip. I really like the Que Bella line of face masks, but have not yet tried the one that you sent me.

A little pampering at this time goes a long way for boosting my spirits. Thank you for your thoughtfulness!

Thank you @Fenix825 for the AWG February wishes of birthday stickers, Christian stickers and Easter stickers!
