I'm not dead. I promise.
@wunderland I will return, soon.
Mom, Wife, Zombie Hunter.
Factoids about me:
My name is Siobhan (pronounced Sha-von)
I am 32 years old, and I like to put things in rainbow order when the opportunity presents itself.
I am slowly creeping back into the swing of things after a really terrible bout of allergy / sinus head cold crap
I am NOT a morning person, like... at all.
i like to write things without capitol letters. not because i am lazy, but just because i can.
I recycle my large envies and bubble mailers, so be warned if you swap with me you may get recycled packaging which isn't always pretty on the outside (but it's what's on the inside that counts!)
I think that mexican food is gross, except quesadillas, I lurve me some bacon and cheese quesadillas. (why is spell check say that is spelled wrong? Google is telling me it's correct?...
I am a very friendly person, and I genuinely want you to like what I send you. If you recieve a package that in any way does not meet your satisfaction please contact me. I am always happy to resend if something is wrong, broken or unacceptable with your package.
Flaking is bad manners and just plain rude. Please only sign up for swaps you intend to send (and can send on time). On the other end of every profile there is a real person, When you flake on a package you hurt someone's trust and feelings.
I would LOVE to recieve anything that will fit into one of my collections! I collect:
Zombie things (plushies, figurines, books, bags, cards, stationary, anything zombie related)
Sock Monkeys (actual sock monkeys and things with sock monkeys on them, I have a few change purses, paper and stickers to go along with my many monkeys)
Ninjas (all things ninja are awesome)
My daughter Autumn has a few collections too, they are listed below in her profile.
What do you collect? I may have something to share with you! I can make and will happily do private swaps for:
9 x 9 quilt blocks (my choice of fabric)
Bookplates and Bookmarks
I love mini albums (making and giving them), handmade stationary, notecards, and I have just started carving my own stamps too.
Paper Crafts and sewing are my favorite. I have a few tutorials on my blog (its a section I am growing piece at a time)
I also make: ATC's, postcards, swap cards, matchboxes, note cards, address labels, altered barbies, altered boxes, other altered things, ransom notes, friendship bracelets, embroidered things, other jewelry... the list goes on and on. I will pretty much try anything once, and if I like it I may try it again.
I am really easy to please so if you don't think that you can find something on my profile in the do's section. Don't worry! I graciously accept all swapped items as long as they match the swap requirements I am really NOT picky :) That said, if I recieve something in a swap that I cannot use or doesn't fit my tastes it may be used to re-swap with, dont be offended :). Thanks!
Anything you make yourself, I love handmade!
I am into tea right now and anything Tazo or Chamomile is good. I have discovered that the only thing I don't really like is fruity flavored teas
scrapbooking paper, charms, American Crafts Thickers letter sets (or even used sets)
little stuffies, preferably handmade
Things you might think are a little off or creepy (but not like oozing puss, because that its just gross)
fairys, pixies, zombie anything, robots, ninjas, kawaii
My fave color is green
and anything that is on my wishlists (or like those things, most of my wishlist stuff is sold out (or too expensive), but I keep the things there to give people an idea of my style choices)
Sock monkeys, I have been collecting these for ages and ages, I would love mini ones or handmade ones
Anything for kitchens
real Food of any kind (allergies)
sunflowers, country style decor
Anything religious at all
bathroom stuffs (sensative to perfumes and lotions)
- I have allergies, so best to stay away from scented candles or perfumed things
My 2 kids: Autumn is 12 (BDay 7/24) and loves to make cards, ATC's, and read, ski and snowboard, swim, horseback riding, chat on the phone (lol). For swaps she would enjoy:
Card Making Supplies, Pretty Gel Pens
Favorite colors: Neon Green, Hot Pink, baby blue
jewelry/lipgloss/nailpolish/girly stuff: NO PERFUME
bookmarks / used copies of any YA book
She collects Nutcrackers, Fairies, mini felt animals, Robots
She likes mini things also
Liliana is 3 (BD 6/24) and LOVES her kitchen set, she loves cooking and we are always looking for more fake foods (especially felt), cups, plates and accessories.
Autumn is always looking for private swaps so anyone who wants to do kids swaps let me know! She's great about deadlines and loves mail!
My husband Jeff (BDay 5/1) and I have been together for 13 years. He loves video games (COD especially, but others too) and cooking. He is a SAHD with a part time job (because he needs daddy time) cooking at a local pub a few nights a week. He loves our girls, playing mens league softball with his boys, video games and anything related to history.
Our wedding anniversary is also on 5/1, I think he chose for us to get married on his birthday so he wouldn't ever forget, and also so we have to celebrate him :) He's a bit of a knuckle-head mc spazatron, but I love him anyway.
In case anyone wants to randomly send me something awesome:
Siobhan Shufelt PO Box 1186 Lyndonville, Vermont 05851 USA
Please do not send anything illegal :)
I am on GOODREADS in case anyone has suggestions or wants to connect over there.
I have recently started reading biographies and I LOVE to read the Dictionary (I know that makes me a word geek. I'm cool with that).
I am a big fan of YA books and fantasy fiction.
Some of my fave YA authors are:
Cassandra Clare (Mortal Instruments series...)
Lisa McMann (Wake, Fade, Gone)
Suzanne Collins (Hunger Games)
Julie Kagawa (Iron Fey series)
PC Cast (House of Night series)
John Green (An Abundance of Katherines, Looking for Alaska...)
Scott Westerfield (Uglies, Pretties...)
Melissa Marr (Wicked Lovely series)
and of course what list would be complete without the wonderful and talented Stephanie Meyer and JK Rowling (*love).
I also have taken a liking to documentaries as of late, and would love to have any ideas people have of good ones! Feel free to leave a comment of send a PM.
I don't get to watch a lot of TV (mostly because I am reading or playing video games) but I love The Walking Dead, Bones, The Office, Parks and Recreation, 30 Rock, and Gray's Anatomy. I have a love / hate relationship with Netflix, but generally their sucky streaming catalog makes it easy to discover weird and cool new films I would never have watched otherwise.
We are Xbox 360 people round these parts, I am a COMPLETE Call of Duty Addict. Games I love , own and will always pick up to replay include: Resident Evil (any and all of them), Bulletstorm, all Final Fantasy games (although predictably 7 is my ABSOLUTE favorite, I would trade my husband for Cloud any day), Homefront, there are more but at the moment they escape me.
For the purposes of my swaps please see the following guidelines I use. If you see any of the following terms this is what they mean in relationship to MY SWAPS ONLY. I cannot speak for other hosts. This is just a vocab list, you won't see all these terms listed together all the time.
No Newbies: You must have completed a minimum of 10 Type 3 swaps with a 5 rating.
Newbies allowed with a well filed out profile: You must have information about you, your likes, dislikes, some links to your blog, store, favorites or facebook. I want to know that you have been thoughtful in your introduction to other swappers, and that you genuinely care about how you present yourselves to other swappers.
I am typically very clear and concise with my descriptions and requirements, if you do not understand anything in the swap description please ask before you sign up. It is your responsibility to make sure you understand what is required of you.
I always check profiles (even in group swaps) right before assigning partners on the close date. I do not tolerate drama queens or flakers. I check your profile, the Swap-Bot flakers group and PF's to make sure that you meet the requirements.
I angel every swap that I host (unless otherwise noted in the swap itself).
Above all I believe that swapping should be safe and fun. I do my best to be organized and thorough to ensure my participants get the best experience possible. Please PM or email me anytime with questions.
My Angel Rules: I happily angel swaps I host (unless otherwise indicated in the actual swap description), here are my rules for angeling:
PM me after the criteria have been met and I will happily send you a lovely package to make up for your missing swap :)
If you flake on a swap I host (or on me for a swap):
karma is a bigger bitch than me and she is watching. Just sayin'
Your name will be added to the many flaker groups
You may or may not have some CAPS lock fury unleashed upon you. Trust me on this, I have seen it. It's not pretty.
I have only been flaked on a total of 3 times in my swap-bot history and none of them are able to swap here any more.
Come on over to Scraptopia for supply, card, layout and other paper craft swaps
Groups on Swap-Bot are one of the best parts of this site. They are like shoes, I am never sure how I will fit in with a group of swappers until I try them on for size. If you notice that I have left a group I was once part of, please do not be offended. It is NEVER personal, it just means that I didn't think it was the right fit for me at the time. Thanks for understanding :)
GSC Guessing Game Title Information
I am a proud officer at Geek Swap Central, almost every swap I post there has a little guessing game, in fact we have a whole game in the forum there dedicated to My First Guessing Game. For those of you who participate in my swaps, the rules of the guessing game are as follows:
First comment in that swap with the correct answer wins.
You must be a member of GSC and be in good standing.
I will then send you a totally useless, yet fun prize for winning! I send at the same time I send the swap itself, that way if it's the same person as my partner then I save on postage.
If for some reason you have not gotten a title game prize from me that is owed please send me a PM I keep very good records but as all us humans do from time to time I mess up or forget so please shoot me a note if I owe you!
Feel free to ignore this section completely, I just need a place to remember to keep track of stuff...
@marcsgrl - never rated for Ninjas, Zombies and Robots ATC - I sent 2 PM's and left a comment trying to track this down, but the messages are still unread and the user has not logged in for about a month.
