I love to crochet and craft with buttons and ribbons. I prefer to crochet with cotton or bamboo, especially with crochet thread. I love to cook and have a large collection of recipes. I love to can foods, make cheeses, make soaps, and shop. I have a miniature doll house that I am working on decorating in the Edwardian style (1900- 1920s. I share my home with my husband, adult daughter and two energetic little dogs. My daughter is an artist who loves to create especially sewing and knitting. I also have a son and daughter-in-law who may share in my swapping fun.
Items I would love to receive include:
Crochet thread (see favorite colors) (especially extra fine threads #30 and smaller)
knitting items (tools, patterns, looms etc)
sewing buttons (especially large or interesting ones)
magnets (for making fridgies)
barrettes, clips or pins (for making things with my crocheted items, buttons and ribbon recipes/cookbooks
Ocean themed items with lighthouses or seashells, etc like recipe cards, notepads, stationary, new cards, envelopes, rubber stamps. etc
spices (new and sealed please)
essential oils (not man made fragrances)
other notepads, stationary, new cards, envelopes. etc
Tea ( I like spicy teas, prefer caffeine free) sugar free drink mix packets (factory sealed please)
sugar free treats (see allergy note)
PLEASE: Make sure all edible items are factory sealed and have labels!
soaps, lotion, other sample or travel sized items
dog treats or squeaky toys,
any item with frogs, Pugs or Sheltie's on them
handcrafted items (Sorry, no homemade foods,for safety and allergy reasons)
vintage 1950's and earlier (especially kitchen) items ( doilies, hotpads, aprons, utensils, etc.)
postage stamps (new unused) lip balm/chapstick (unused of course, lol)
window scrapers gloves s/m, hats/scarves /slippers size 8
Miniature dollhouse decor 1900-1920's era especially hand made miniature quilts, doilies, rugs, pictures, books, etc.
Books: craft, crochet, romance, mystery, sci-fi, fantasy, just about anything that is readable and not crude is fine. But my favorite is probably fantasy stories that include mythical creatures like dragons, unicorns, etc with magical powers. I also like Christian themed stories. I also like humor, music, and cookbooks.
Movies(humor, romance, action, animation, historical) music cds (originals not copies, new or used in good condition is fine)
For music I love country, blue grass, old rock and roll, old hymns and gospel (not the modern rock or christian rock). Please do not send porn, horror, violent or x-rated materials, they will just be trashed!
Likes/Dislikes/Allergies/Health My favorite colors are: browns, olive or sage greens, golds, cream, white, rusty oranges, amber, and dark reds.
I do not care for purples, pinks, greys, blacks or blues
I love natural scents but am mildly allergic to most man made fragrances.
My family is diabetic or prediabetic and needs to stay away from too much sugar.
I am allergic to aspertame ( Nutrasweet) but my family can have those that come with aspertame in them.
For health reason, I avoid the following ingredients: aspertame, MSG, sugar, caffeine, nitrates and man made fragrances, but I can re-home any items that arrive with these ingredients as long as they are factory sealed and have original labels.
For me, Swap-Bot is about trading handmade items, craft supplies and other goodies that I won't use for handmade items and supplies I love and/or will use. This way I can hopefully find a good home for stuff that is just taking up space and of little or no use to me but too nice to just toss out. And if I find nice craft supplies and goodies at a discount somewhere I don't have to pass up the great bargain even if I know I won't get around to using it, because I can trade it for something I will use. I call that a win/win!
