About Me

Hi. I'm Kristin. It's been a long time since I've been on this site. I love swapping, as you can see, I've already done quite a few, but it's been a while. I know that the last few swaps I did, I ended up getting ones. I hope that doesn't make you not trust me. That was a hard time in my life. I lost a lot of people, and just sort of stopped doing things I loved due to grief. I know that's not an excuse, but things are definitely happier in my life. So, hopefully I can get back into the full force of things here on swap-bot. If you are one of the people that I wasn't able to send to, please let me know so I can send you something to make up for the swap that I missed...

Anyway, I work with young children (ages 6 and younger) who have been diagnosed with autism. I run behavior therapy with them in the hopes that early intervention will help them live a more normal life :) I love my job!

I like horror movies, zombies, punk rock, star wars, south park, coffee, coffee mugs, cigarette lighters, cigarettes, stationary, paintings, handmade things, taking pictures, painting, crocheting, making jewelery, my sewing machine, classic rock (Beatles, Pink Floyd), Disney movies (Especially The Little Mermaid), writing letters, receiving letters, American sign language, Spanish, traveling, Disneyland, shoes, bottle caps, scrapbooking, collages, volleyball, shopping, shot glasses, postcards, posters, band stickers, harry potter, playstation 2, socks, professional wrestling (WWE type stuff), candles, jagermeister, Pabst Blue Ribbon, and many other things.

Favorite Music

I love music! I don't know what I would do without it. I always have music with me. I will listen to almost anything. I grew up listening to The Beatles, Eric Clapton, Pink Floyd, Yes and BB King. I still love all of that, but have expanded my horizons. My favorite music right now is Punk Rock. I love the bands that haven't been discovered by the big labels. I also love the older punk such as The Ramones, The Sex Pistols, The Clash, Social Distortion, Misfits, and other bands like that. I also like most country music and some rap and hip hop, but not much. I'm always open to listen to something new though. You never know if you're going to like something until you listen to it!

Favorite Books

I love reading. I will read anything that I can get my hands on. My list can go on for days. I love the Harry Potter series (cliche, I know), I also love Neil Gaiman's stuff (Stardust, American Gods, Anansi Boys, to name a few), The Lovely Bones, White Oleander, Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, The Chronicles of Narnia, To Kill A Mocking Bird and sooo many more!

Favorite Movies

I love a lot of horror movies. Rob Zombie movies are always good. I also love Disney Movies. The Little Mermaid is probably my most favorite movie of all time! I could watch it over and over again! I also love fantasy and sci-fi movies. I love the Star Wars series and the Harry Potter series (but the books are SOOO much better!! haha)

Favorite Television

I don't watch too much television, but when I do, It's usually on Grey's Anatomy. Something about that show has sucked me in.

Favorite Crafts

I love playing with my sewing machine. I like to alter my own clothes, and turn t shirts into halter tops or purses. I like to crochet,and am currently trying to learn how to make something other than scarves, hats and booties. haha.) I also love making jewelery out of things that I find around the house (ie: bottle cap earrings, necklaces and bracelets.) I also have just discovered my love for painting. I also love playing around with mod podge. You can make so many neat things, and they all make great gifts. There's so much more that I do, and so much more that I want to learn how to do!!!

I'm always happy to get:





*coffee mugs

*shot glasses

*picture frames

*disney items


*coffee / hot chocolate

*crafting supplies


*letter sets

Comment: I never received anything from KrissyVB - not even a reply to my message. However, a big thanks to our very generous swap host Deb P for angeling this.
Comment: i'm so sorry to give this as a rating since i've always had such a good image of kristin and we had a good amount of communication before this swap. if i receive it however i will have no problem changing the rating. i hope all is well!
Comment: Never received. PM'd you with no reply.
Comment: Flaked on again
Comment: I contacted everyone involved in the swap about the deadline of the swap on 1/15/09. I contacted my partner by email and swapbot. She has not been on since January and no reply to my email. I am very fair and will most definitely change this rating when I receive my swap. Rest assure I will NOT leave you with a 1 once it comes in. I hope everything is okay. 2/7/09
