About Me

My Introduction:

Hello swap-bot peepz! Allow me to introduce myself! I am a lady who loves loves loves to cook! I love to bake sweets, make ALL sorts of delicious cuisine and collect cookbooks. I am an avid lover of tea, hot cocoa and coffee and I simply love to try new flavors regularly! I am addicted to pizza and I love to collect things with pizza designs on them, also donuts and ice cream.....oh and of course cupcakes, chocolate chip cookies, and pies! My favorite pie is pecan pie! Love it so much! My favorite Pakistani dessert is gulab jamun and barfi! Y to the U to the M spells YUM!!!!! I love Pakistani sweets a little too much. Whenever I go there I ask my husband to go out each night to buy me sweets! ~LOL~ It is like a ritual for me-tea and sweets every single night! Also, addicted to pakoras and pakora curry and can't get enough!

About My Religious Views:

I am a very religious person and I love to collect scarves as I wear them daily! I respect ALL religions and I do NOT discriminate on a basis of color, race, ethnicity, or religion. My family has many different religions and colors in it. I build my life around my religion (I am Muslimah) and it is a very big part of who I am! I appreciate individuals who respect other people and their religious preferences. I also respect everyone and their wishes.

Pertaining to My Eating Habits:

I basically only eat Halal or Kosher labeled foods. I am also a vegetarian (ovo-lacto). I also eat organic foods most of the time, mainly because it tastes fresher in my opinion! I feel that eating healthy is essential to the well-being! I also enjoy gardening and growing my own fruits vegetables on my family's land. We live in a ranch-style home nestled by the lake. I love the country lifestyle!

I Love to Shop:

I am a shopaholic!!!! I love brick and mortar stores as well as online shops. I am a thrift-store and consignment shop lover too. I love to search for unique items. The more unique and unusual the better. I like to dress in vibrant colors and I love wild and zany designs! I am just very original and I like to express my originality through my clothing style!

I Love to Accessorize:

Accessories I love are belts, scarves, purses, bandannas, watches, bracelets, bangles, necklaces, earrings, and well pretty much all accessories that are unique and unusual and especially South Asian things; such as Pakistani or Indian things. I also like Japanese, Korean and Chinese things. If you can find anything unique then "pretty please" send it my way! Very much welcome are ALL foreign items. I also love Native American items.

I Love to Write Movies:

I love writing movies and I have a film club that's been around since 2005. We are currently working on a film project that we desire to be big in the film industry. I really pray that it is going to turn out successful. It is a big dream of mine that will finally be fulfilled if this makes it big. I really could use some insight from anyone with film, screenwriting or theatrical experiences!

I Strive to Sew Seeds of Kindness:

I am a friendly, empathetic, and caring individual. Blessed to be a mother of five lovely children! My son is 21 and my daughters are 19, 14, 10, and 1. I am a natural health consultant/counselor and work from home. I am looking for friends from all over the world!

I aim to be an honest individual, therefore, if you do not get a swap it is not because I did not ship (unless something serious has taken place)! If you have not received something from me then please contact me there must be a problem going on! I will do my best to get things straightened out ASAP.

I Love to Recycle:

I recycle padded envelopes and on occasion boxes. Therefore, 99.9% of the time you will receive a previously used package from me. I see no need in wasting good envelopes that can be used again for the same purpose.

Also, if you do not like the swap I sent to you do not blast my page with negative comments. I will fix the problem if it can be fixed but PLEASE contact me prior to leaving a negative rating! Also, please do not leave me a bad rating if I have sent what I was supposed to but you think it was not cute enough.....just tell me and I may be able to resend something better. I enjoy swapping so much and it is very fun in my opinion!

I am a Swapaholic:

I want to mention that I am a lover of swapping and I try my best to fulfill my swap obligations. At times, you can not please everyone because not everyone has the same tastes and style preferences. I am not perfect, and I am in no way trying to be perfect. I am only human and I can only try my best to succeed at pleasing my partner. As a human, I am entitled to times in my life where I am not able to do things due to illness or other issues. If this happens it is beyond my control and if I am able I will contact you and inform you upfront. I suffer from numerous health ailments and there are times when I feel really horrible. I have so far fulfilled my obligations at the best I can do and I will try my best to continue this.

Private Swaps are Welcome:

*If you want to do private swaps I am open to them on a few conditions.

  1. The swapper with the most established swaps with replies should ship after the one with less ratings and/or established swaps. So, the higher rating individual should await their package and then ship.

  2. Please provide a tracking # if at all possible as I will do the same for you!

  3. We need to work out exactly what we want to swap before we ship so that nobody is upset later. Avoiding conflict is better than fixing an error.

Swappers who plan to flake please be aware that.....God knows everything! If you hurt others you will eventually be held accountable!

Please let me know if you want to angel. I can angel for you too if you like!

I aim to please so if I am not meeting my own expectations then please let me know. I generally rate right away upon receiving my swaps. Please return the favor for me when you receive my swap!

Favorite Crafts

Making embossed stationery and cards, artist trading cards and other paper crafts. I like making jewelry, making friendship books and pretty much anything cool.

My girls and I are especially fond of making magnets, organizers and purses.

I also enjoy painting and especially those boxed paint-by-number kits. I really get into those and they are so fun to do "in my opinion". I consider myself a very talented freelance painter also. Just give me a paint brush and a bunch of paint and I can just "let the art flow".

Dislikes

Things I do NOT want to receive as swaps:

  • VERY IMPORTANT I CAN NOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH, THEREFORE, THIS IS IN ALL CAPS-"NO PORK ANYTHING" THAT INCLUDES RECIPES!!!!!

  • I prefer no FOOD unless you ask first as I am VERY picky eater!

  • Please do NOT send me UNSEALED bags of tea. I only use the sealed tea bags when they are coming through the mail. I received a swap and the swapper placed unwrapped tea bags in a make-up case. This is highly unacceptable.

  • Rumors, lies and deceit.

  • Racists/Bigots/Prejudiced/Biased people please do not come my way. I do not have time for you because I do not discriminate and I do not associate myself with people who plan on discriminating against me or others. If you hate me because I am Muslim then please GO AWAY! If you hate people because they are Arab, Black, Pakistani, Indian, East Asian, Hispanic, European, American, Latino, White, another religion or belief than you or whatever racist thing you have in your mind then please keep away!

  • No hateful or rude people who are to quick to pass judgement about others without giving them a chance. People CAN change so it is best to not let a few bad things you hear about them make you believe they are a bad individual.

  • Meat in general (I am an ovo-lacto vegetarian)

  • Snakes/Worms/Bugs

  • No religious stuff unless it pertains to my religion

  • Alcohol

  • Gelatin (including gummy candy)

  • Marshmallows

  • Nothing that smells like cigarette or cigar smoke. (I have asthma and allergies and 3 small children).

  • Overall, I'd prefer NOT to receive food or beverages unless the swap calls for it! I am allergic to coconut and I can not consume pork by-products so it is too hard to select foods for me. Thank you in advance for understanding!

People Who Double Rate:

  • People who give you hearts and then take them away from you later. Especially when you do a private swap and they give you a heart at first and then you give them a regular 5. Taking the heart away is actually a double rating and anyway you have received more than one rating email to prove that they did in fact double rate you. I am not sure why some people do this it seems the option to re-rate is on re-sends not to change good ratings because you have been given a simple 5. In my opinion this is "childish" and we are supposed to be "adults" here for the most part. If you have sent a decent or more generous swap then you are deserving of the heart. Therefore, to have someone take it away out of anger is quite upsetting.

  • Muffins

  • Cupcakes

Comment: Will update this review later with a Heart. (Can't seem to give Heart on this Windows XP laptop, and turns out Swap-bot actually doesn't load properly but at least I can still browse it!). Thanks for hosting this and for the efficiency!! ~Kiyasu (UPDATE: Ah, now the option to give a Heart works if I access the rating page again. It won't work on the first try, and I have to reload this page *after* having already given you a rating. At least it works here on Windows XP either way, even though it needed more steps to make it work!)

Comment: Your fun envelope is so colourful, and the card you embossed! That is so cool! Thank you! It sounds like a pretty good weekend... especially planting seeds with your daughter!! Have any of them come up yet? I just planted some Pansies, and then read the seed packet after the fact and realized they wouldn't germinate until it was 75°! haha, not there yet! :) I hope you are working thru the unhappiness you mentioned... figuring out the rough patches makes us more resilient, I think. Love and Hugs!
Response: Thanks for the kind message. Yes, the seeds are already spouting and some are very big. The largest are the snow peas and pumpkin. It is actually very exciting. I hope your plants start sprouting soon as well. I want to start some flowers as well soon. The vegetables surprisingly started sprouting overnight and are doing amazing. Hope you have an amazing weekend.
