About Me

My name is Jillian. I am a mother who loves to meet new people! I am a Master Gardener and have had a beehive. I aspire to be an engineer. I also have recently started to play roller derby. It isn't really like the stereotype; it is a fun sport with a great group of women.

I especially love travel. I have a wanderlust that will never be tamed. My children and I are planning/saving for a trip to Australia. I want us to spend months there and really appreciate everything about that country. New Zealand and Fiji are also must do's.

With this wanderlust comes the desire to learn about different places/regions. I would love to hear about where you're from. I'd especially love to receive a recipe specific to your area. 4x6 recipe cards with your name would be absolutely the best thing I could receive!!

I enjoy private swaps. Please feel free to pm me. We could trade a recipe or something with an item of your choice. The possibilities are endless!!

Family

I have 3 kids. We were fortunate enough to live in Europe for several years. We tried to travel and bike as much as we could. I miss living there :)

We would welcome pen pals. My kids are 12, 8, and 4, but they only speak English. They have definitly lost their German. Please send me a private message if your child is interested.

Favorite Books

My absolute, all time fav is John Grisham. I really enjoy that legal who dunit genre. Right now I am reading The Secret Garden. I want to work my way through all the classics. Next on my list is Mary Poppins.

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy being creative, but I don't think I'm that great. An A for effort??? I love to scrapbook :) I want to try to zentangles and ATCs. I spend most of my time cooking or working in the garden.

Things I like...

Green, anything is better green!, travel, gardening, beekeeping, learning new things

Recipes

I love to cook healthy meals for my family. I make most everything from scratch. I have nothing against pre packaged stuff, but I chose not to use it. Most of the time :) We also lean vegetarian, but we still eat meat.

I would love to receive recipes on 4x6 recipe cards (but otherwise is good as well!) I like them to fit on my cute box & in someone else's handwriting. I would also enjoy recipes from different places around the world. Like red beans and rice from Louisiana, and Snitzel or Vanilla Kipferl from Germany. Please send recipes that you love to prepare. Family recipes are treasured.

Wishlist

I would love to receive your recipes on 4x6 cards. That way they'll fit in my cute little box :)

I would LOVE to receive used stamps. I want to frame them once I get a bunch of cool ones from around the world.

Blank 4x6 recipe cards, note cards or post cards

ATCs

Zentangles

Pen Pals

Foreign Currency ( I have US Dollar, Euro, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Czech, Polish Zloty)

Scrapbook embelishments, anything for my family, garden tips/ideas/seeds, travel stuff, stamps, anything unique, things from foreign countries, a classic book.

I try to be easy going and low maintenance. I appreciate effort.

I love to learn about other places and cultures.

Dislikes

Snakes

(I will have to think about this more!)

I just want to say something about flaking. I did flake on a zine swap. But, it was 4 years ago! I would hope that you would allow for the fact that sometimes people make mistakes, and that it isn't necessarily indicative of character. If you feel that you cant associate with me because I'm imperfect & made a mistake 4 years ago then I'm sorry you feel that way.

Comment: Thanks Jillian! We also celebrate St. Nicholas Day! If you have an Aldi near, they have the German chocolate Santa’s!!! We do the pickle as well as make German Christmas cookies! My favorite!
Response: No Aldi :( A few weeks ago I say a guy in my store with a Rewe shopping bag. No of those either. Vanilla Kipferl coming soon!

Comment: These sound delicious, I'm hosting xmas this year and I think I'll make the pumpkin dip to share (probably will keep the doughnuts to myself though). PS- I had a bit of confusion with your username, you signed Icefishers but that doesn't match here.
Response: Ahhh! Sorry! That’s my username for everything else except SB!!

Hello! I sent a 2nd crossword puzzle swap to you yesterday - please let me know when you get it (and also let me know if you ever get the 1st one I sent). THANKS!!

LauraAust on Jul 9, 2014:

Hi there! Just checking in to see if you have gotten my "Create a Crossword" puzzle swap - I would think you should have it by now and am getting a little worried (I should have photocopied it prior to mailing). Thanks!

LittleDonnaGirl on Jul 4, 2014:

Not sure if you saw my PM. Just wanted to let you know I would be happy to do a private Mini Care Package swap with you. :o) Just let me know.

Hi Jill Thank You for the Euro coins they were a nice surprise

FROGGY42 on May 4, 2010:

Okay, I'll be the first! I just got a message from you about having lived in Georgia. Just thought I would check out your profile before answering your message. You don't have the profile of a serial killer or anyone with any serious deviations, so I think you may be safe! :-) My husband and I live in Bucksport which is in Hancock County, not far from Bangor. Glad you contacted me. Do it again and we can get to know eackother a bit. Who knows, we might become pals or it might fizzle out, but what the heck? I warn you, I am much older than you, but I don't feel very old! Jump right into a swap... they are fun. I will help if you have any questions and most everyone is willing to help anyone. See ya. ~Gail
