I'm back. My baby is 10 weeks old so I won't be doing as many swaps at once as I had been before, but I am back! :)
To clarify on the join date and the date of ratings...
I used to have a different profile. I went through a lot of crazy life changes, some bad and some good. When I was ready to return to Swap-Bot a couple of years later, I no longer had the email address associated with the old profile, did not know the password of the old profile, had a new last name (I got remarried), and a new address (I moved). Unsure of how to get in contact with Rachel, I made this profile. Then she combined the old one into this one for me. As you can see, all of my ratings from the old profile were good except one 1. That 1 was given right when my life went crazy. I hadn't logged on since sending the swap, so I didn't realize it didn't get to my partner. Unfortunately, my partner isn't logging in anymore but I left her a PM and a reply to her rating letting her know how sorry I am and that I will gladly make up the swap if she returns to the site.

♥ Music - Country, rock, and 90's are my favorites but I listen to just about anything. Some of my favorite artists include Zac Brown Band, Journey, Miranda Lambert, Metallica, Backstreet Boys, Train, 3 Doors Down, and Matchbox Twenty.
♥ Movies - Horror, fantasy, action, a bit of everything really. Some favorites are The Shawshank Redemption, all the Harry Potter films, Million Dollar Baby, Gridiron Gang, The Freedom Writers, and Darkness Falls.
♥ Snail mail - Pen pals, swapping, mail art
♥ Crafts - Crochet, paper crafts, friendship bracelets, ATCs... and I just got a sewing machine for Christmas (2015) and I want to learn to use it and to quilt!
♥ Reading - I read anything I can get my hands on! I'll always be a Potterhead and re-read the series as often as I can. I also love Nicholas Sparks, sci-fi, horror, mystery, and things I randomly pick up at a bookstore.
This list is mostly for profile-based swaps. :-) If it's on this list, I'd like it! And handmade items are great too! I also have links at the top of my profile to my actual wishlisted items on Etsy and Amazon. :-)
» Books - any and all genres! Used or new is perfectly fine. I have a major love of books.
» Baby and Children's stuff - Like I say above, I have a 6 year old boy and another boy born in late October 2015. For my 6 year old, small toys, stickers, clothes, and small art projects/supplies are welcome. He has no food allergies either. :-)
» Nice pens
» Color gel pens
» Stationery sets or stationery paper for me to write letters on
» Note pads and post-it notes
» List pads as I make a list for everything!
» Gently used magazines
» Gift cards or gift card codes - Once again, this is for my children as opposed to being for me. We buy most of our baby/child supplies at Babies R Us, Amazon, and Walmart.
» Unused postcards - I live in a very small town, so I don't have anywhere to purchase postcards and I am not crafty enough to make nice ones, so unused postcards for me to use in swaps are greatly appreciated.
» Note cards and envelopes
» Stickers (any size, including reward ones)
» Single-use drink packets (that you add to bottled water)
» Fleece fabric (at least 6 inch x 6 inch)
» Toys for my rats or gerbils... they like things they can chew on - anything wood, cardboard, or 'loofah'. Hanging toys like for large birds are great too. Handmade is fine as well, there are a ton of DIY ideas online. :)
» Box Tops for Education for my son's school (not expired please)
» Scrapbook supplies - patterned paper (scraps ATC-sized and larger please), stickers, stencils, glue dots, sticky ribbon, washi tape, gel pens in different colors, sharpies in different colors, basically anything.
» Sticky address labels with my info on them (PM me for the info please)
» Nail polish
» ATC supplies
» Unused USA Forever stamps
» Unused USA Global Mail Forever stamps
» Anything you make! I love to see other peoples' creativity. If you enjoy making something, I'll enjoy receiving it.
» Things pertaining to my "likes" list below.
Please Do Not Send
This list is pretty small, but it is a list of dislikes - things I simply won't use and would be better off being sent to someone who will treasure it.
« Tea - I'm not a tea drinker.
« Chocolate - I actually like chocolate, but our weather is unpredictable and it will likely melt.
« Makeup - I have sensitive skin and have to be careful what I use.
An ever-expanding and ever-changing list of random things I like!
I love my pets.
I have two male gerbils (that are my son's, but I'm the one who takes care of them and such, he just likes to watch them) - Blackie (solid black) and Dobby (blonde).
My babies are my six male fancy rats! Scabbers, Templeton, Ricky, Demon, Ignotus, and Willow. Iggy and Will are dumbo-eared.
