I am a former preschool teacher, but right now I am a SAH Mommy/Grammy. I have 4 children--3 daughters and 1 son. Three of my children are grown, 2 still at home--one a college student and one a 5yr old!LOL We have 4 grandchildren--3 girls and 1 boy--all under age 6. We have so much fun with our littlest girl and our grandchildre!
As you can see, I am a very family-oriented person---My husband and I have been married since 1977! I 'qualified' to join AARP and the Red Hat Society last year!(LOL)I still feel very young--I think all the kids keep me that way (or maybe it's watching all of the children's programming--I just don't know)!LOL
I have a wacky sense of humor and very eclectic tastes. Sometimes, even I, can't keep track of my fav things of the moment!LOL
I am a Christian and a children's Sunday School teacher--but that doesn't mean I don't have fun and don't have a sense of humor---I think my sense of humor and wackiness are 2 of the gifts God gave me---it helps even out the shyness/introverted part of me! I don't mind receiving religious items.
Contemp. Christian, 70s, pop, classical, jazz. Ithink I'm pretty well-rounded (well, in more 'weighs' than one)!!!
I love to read so much that it intrudes on my TV watching time!LOL I like Discovery, TLC, History, A &E, Crime solving stuff. My daughter makes me watch What Not to Wear and Say Yes to the Dress with her.
I like a lot of different kinds of crafts. All of the easy kind!!!ROFL I like to decorated matchboxes, make bookmarks, make magnets out of tiles, and I'm teaching myself how to make things out of felt----after a life-long hatred of sewing!
I love any crafts that others make--there are so many artistic people on Swap-bot.
I LOVE to read! I especially like thrillers/suspense. I like true crime, some chick lit, recently started reading the Abby Cooper, Phycic Eye series--Would love to have some of the later ones.
I love Diet Coke and am always watching for spare Coke codes---so I can get free Cokes---only 24 pts gets you a coupon for a free Coke and caps are worth 3 pts each. If you don't use yours---I would love to have them (you can just send the codes; you don't have to mail the caps--unless you would rather. I hope that makes sense!
I have been a member of Swap-bot since May, 2007. I've been trading books and other media on line for about 6 yrs.
Rag Dolls---I am just starting a collection--any size, any kind, raggedy ones are great, too!
matchboxes--decorated or undecorated
postcards---vintage or not, written on or not-I like 'em all. I also like vintage postcard booklets from the 50s, 60s (?) , they fold out and have several cards attached, I have recently found postcard books on Amazon--that have lots of postcards in a book. I love those,too.
Unused postage stamps (US) I like all denominations.
gel pens and Sharpies
I ADORE cookbooks---esp. ones made by churches/organizations---lots of different kinds of recipes.
I like tea towels, oven mitts, potholders, fun kitchen goodies--my kitchen is decorated in apples, but I like everything.
I like Mentos candy (all flavors)
those little packets to add to bottled water
coin purses (my hubby is looking for one of those old man/Grandpa type coin 'purses' to keep his change in!LOL
Buttons!!! I like to fill jars with buttons
Erasers--I have recently started filling a jar with cute erasers.
Cupcake themed items
Cute Socks (reg women's size)
Flip Flops (size 7/8) fun colors, etc
things with Smiley faces make me happy!
I always love anything from my Amazon WL--most of it is books because they are my fav--I keep it up-to-date---used books are fine.
This is a new (weird) interest--cute sleep masks! I recently tried one and couldn't believe how much I like sleeping with one!LOL These are just a few of of the things I love---I love getting anything in the mail because I love surprises so much!!!
I always rate right after I open the mail---please remember to rate me, too. Thanks bunches!
Since I just joined a group for children's swaps, I thought I should put Bri's WL in here:
Cookies (she is telling me what to write)
Stickers: Dora, Diego, Princesses, SpongeBob
Jewelry, hair stuff
I, Carly stuff
a not expensive movie---her words--she doesn't mind used.
Littlest Pet shop animals or other small animals
