About Me

My name is Heather, but my friends call me Raven. I'm 29, and I live in Dover, New Hampshire. I love sending and receiving mail, hence being here on Swap-Bot...

A Bit About Me:

I am a solitary practitioner of Wicca...
♥ I work full-time in retail at the moment, and am looking to get back into an office job.
♥ I absolutely ♥LOVE♥ tattoos and piercings! I currently have fourteen tattoos, and plan to get many, many more. Piercing wise, I just have my ears done.
♥ I love the outdoors. I enjoy gardening, walking the beach, picnics, and watching the sun set.
♥ I love animals. My favorite animal is the Moose.
♥ I love to travel, go hiking, camping, and backpacking.
♥ I love singing, and enjoy going to Karaoke. I like going to concerts, movies, and spending time with friends.
♥ I enjoy writing pen-pals, sending / receiving packages, and making new friends...
♥ I love to read. My favorite author is Edgar Allen Poe.
♥ I like to spend time with my three nephews (Keith, who’s 9; Michael, who’s 4; and Steven, who is 18 months old) and my dog, Moose (a longhair dachshund I adopted from a rescue).
♥ I enjoy volunteer work. I currently volunteer with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), and National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), as I lost my father to suicide and have struggled with mental illness myself.
♥ I'm a member of B.A.A.C. - Bikers Against Animal Cruelty, a volunteer group made up of motorcycle enthusiasts who are animal lovers, that advocate against animal cruelty and neglect, and work to promote responsible pet ownership.
If there's anything you'd like to know about me, that isn't here, please don't hesitate to ask me. :-)


I added this space to be able to list random updates about me/my life. :-)

UPDATE: 07/19/16: I am somewhat settled into my new job in Maine and my new home in New Hampshire. There's still a lot to be done, but right now, I'm okay with handling one thing at a time...

♥ Family ♥

♥ My Nephews ♥

I ♥ love ♥ my nephews!! I have three nephews, Keith, who is nine years old, Michael, who is four years old, and baby Steven, who is 18 months old. I helped raise Keith, so he and I are very close.

Keith is a great kid. He's in first grade. Right now, he loves to play games on his Amazon Kindle (so he'd love Amazon coins or a cheap Amazon Gift Card). His favorite game at the moment is MineCraft. He loves anything MineCraft. He enjoys coloring, doing crafts (he really likes those foam craft kits - like the ones you make door hangers or ornaments from). Keith loves getting mail, and if you'd like to send him something, please PM me and I can give you the address.

Here are some things he enjoys... ♥ Play-Doh ♥ Modelling Clay (the non-drying kind) ♥ Colored Pencils ♥ Markers ♥ Plain Art Pads ♥ Construction Paper ♥ Coloring Books (T-Rex or MineCraft themed) ♥ Stickers (T-Rex, MineCraft, or Scooby Doo themed) ♥ Foam Art Kits

Michael is two years old and he is an absolute joy. He was diagnosed with Down Syndrome at birth, but he is one smart cookie! He loves to play outside, enjoys the beach, and likes to "help" around the house, Any toddler appropriate toys are welcome.

Please, please, please - NO religious items for either of my nephews!

A little bit about ♥ Moose ♥

Moose is my Longhair Dachshund. He is a purebred, and he is almost eight years old. He is a rescue, and I adopted him when he was six months old. I can't imagine my life without him, he is my furbaby, hehe.

Treats for Moose are always welcome, he prefers chewy (soft) dog treats better than cookies but he will eat both. He likes to play with toys (squeaky ones especially, small tennis balls, etc.). I am one of those crazy dog moms who will put him in bandannas and clothing, so those are welcome, too, hehe.

Things I'd ♥ to Recieve

Please feel free to send me anything you desire, as I try not to be too picky, but if you'd like to know more about my likes / interests / things I'd like to receive here's a list I hope helps:

♥ Handmade surprises - I'd love to receive something handmade - anything you craft is welcome, be it a drawing, card, ATC, soap, dotee doll, scarf, etc... - whatever it is, I'm not picky, I love handmade gifts. :-)
♥ Craft Supplies (scrapbooking supplies, card making supplies, papers, stickers, stamps, etc...)
♥ Gardening Supplies (seeds, bulbs, plant food, etc...)
♥ Anything with a Moose on it (my preference is realistic...)
♥ Anything Eeyore!
♥ Anything with Fairies...
♥ Anything with Owls (realistic or cartoonish...)
♥ Anything with Ravens {as my nickname is Raven} (realistic or cartoonish...)
♥ Anything with butterflies
♥ Things for my nephews (toys, bubbles, games, etc...)
♥ Things for Moose (Dog toys, dog treats, etc...)
♥ Things for writing my pen-pals (stationary, pens, stickers, envelope seals, etc...)
♥ Things for cooking/baking (baking mixes, cooking seasonings, recipes, etc...)
♥ Edibles (tea {my favorites are green tea and white tea}, chocolate, gum, candy, cashews, peanuts, etc...)
♥ Bath and Body Supplies (lotions, bath salts, body wash, make-up, nail polish, etc.)
♥ Housewares (Candles {I love Yankee Candle}, picture frames, artwork, etc...)
♥ Clothing (Scarves, mittens, socks, etc...)
♥ For anything scented, I like fresh, clean scents, like the ocean/beach, or fresh linen, as well as fruity scents, like mandarin orange or grapefruit, and earthy scents, like pine tree, etc...
♥ My favorite colors are black, camo (green/black camo, and not tree camo or digital camo), purple, and silver. I can't stand pink. :-/


Well, I think it's safe to say, we all have dislikes, and things we'd rather NOT receive, so here are mine:

♥ Coffee
♥ Nuts other than cashews or peanuts
♥ Anything strawberry or banana flavored or scented
♥ Anything vanilla or sugary scented for the home (candles, reed diffusors, etc).
♥ I'm not a fan of gold color jewelry. I prefer jewelry that is silver, pewter, or brass in color.
♥ I'm not a big fan of pink, when it comes to any kind of clothing, jewelry, purses, make-up, or anything wearable - so the less pink in those types of items, the better, LoL...


In my free time, I love doing arts and crafts. Some of my favorite crafts include:

♥ Scrapbooking, card making, and paper crafts.
♥ Wood crafts (frames, shelves, etc...)
♥ Photography...
♥ Kids Crafts with my nephews...
♥ Floral arrangements...
♥ Wreath making...

There are LOTS of crafts I'd currently really like to LEARN including:
♥ Making ATCs
♥ Knitting and Crocheting
♥ Quilting

Music, Books, Movies Etc.

I listen to a wide variety of music, such as:

♥ Country (Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, etc...)
♥ Hard/Alternative Rock (311, Five Finger Death Punch, Korn, Papa Roach, etc...)
♥ Pop (The Fray, Edwin McCain, One Republic, The Goo Goo Dolls, etc...)
♥ R&B/Hip-Hop (LMFAO, Kid Cudi, Kanye West, Eminem, Ludacris, etc...)
♥ Classic Rock (Kiss, AC/DC, Motley Crue, Van Halen, etc...)

I love to read, and do so as much as I can find time to. I have a Kindle Fire, and read one to two new books every week! Some of my all-time favorite authors include Fern Michaels, Edgar Allen Poe, Debbie Macomber, and Nicholas Sparks.

Movies: Genre wise, I enjoy drama, chick flicks (that's a given, huh?), musicals, and horror. Some of my favorite movies are:

♥ The Raven
♥ The Notebook
♥ Gran Torino
♥ Little Red Riding Hood
♥ Snow White and the Huntsmen
♥ Sweeney Todd

Some of my favorite actors and actresses are:
♥ Johnny Depp (♥ LOVE ♥ him!)
♥ Amanda Seyfried
♥ Channing Tatum
♥ Clint Eastwood
♥ Duane "The Rock" Johnson

My Volunteer Work

I spend a lot of my free time doing volunteer work. Some of the things I enjoy doing include:

♥ Volunteering with Habitat for Humanity
♥ Volunteering as a Field Advocate for AFSP/SPAN USA
♥ Volunteering as a Board Member for the Northern CT AFSP Chapter In-Formation
♥ Volunteering at local Mental Health and/or Suicide Awareness and Prevention events.
♥ Volunteering at Animal Rescue events.
♥ Volunteering at Campus events for MxCC.

* Just an FYI *

Please Note: If you do not receive a swap from me a reasonable amount of time for shipping once I've marked it "sent", please send me a message.

I'm here to meet new people and to have fun swapping, not to flake. I do NOT mark anything "Sent" until I have physically brought it to the Post Office.

I always try to send within one to two days of being assigned a partner... (If you are outside the U.S., please give sufficient time for item to arrive, thanks.)

Also, if for some reason, you receive my swap- package, and feel it's not sufficient enough for a "5" rating, I would be more than happy to rectify that by re-sending a package.

Please don't hesitate to contact me with swap-related issues. Thanks! :-)
